Death threats if Labour candidate not left alone

September 28th, 2010 at 1:00 pm by David Farrar

This is very serious. The Herald reports (offline):

Police are investigating a death threat against a political organiser in relation to a possible Super City voting scam in South Auckland.

Citizens & Ratepayers campaign organiser Jim Stephens received a letter mentioning a “hit list” and “shooters” if the right-leaning ticket did not desist from maligning “our winning candidate Daljit [Singh]“.

It was purportedly signed by “ supporters”.

Last night, Daljit Singh, one of two Labour Party candidates in the Papatoetoe subdivision of the Otara-Papatoetoe Local Board, was “100 per cent sure” none of his supporters had sent the letter.

I hope the Police test the letter for fingerprints and handwriting samples etc. Totally unacceptable to make not very veiled threats like this.

    The funny thing is that they well have (with the election fraud – assuming its the same people) have put the gun to the head of their own candidate.

    Not normal for labour / lefties. Normally they just shoot themselves in the foot.

    Completely reprehensible, especially given the ease with which people can be tracked down to their family homes etc. This thing takes a toll in excess of the actual candidate, down to proximate family members.

    How easy would it be to change the threatened candidate’s phone number and get it delisted?

    I’m pleased to hear Daljit Singh is concerned.

    Given that he’s under investigation for fraud and that there are now further questions over his campaign, perhaps he’d like to consider withdrawing and endorsing another Labour candidate – one with clean hands.

    After all, the idea is to promote Labour and get people elected who espouse it’s values… isn’t it? It’s not all about the career of Mr Singh, regardless of the damage to his party… is it?

    It is clearly one particular ‘race’ of people that this is happening with, (rorts scams etc….call me racist but this shit never used to happen here). Both candidates should step down and force the Indian community to take a long hard look at itself. Make a stand and tell their constituency that they stand for Democracy – that they refused to contest in a dirty election, that they moved from India to NZ to get away from that sort of thing…….

    Here we have another watershed event in the development of the democracy of our country.
    How this matter, and the vote rigging in South Auckland is delt with by NZ Police is critical.
    At least we can hope they will investigate it with the gravity it requires.
    Of course that hope would be in vain were H1 and H2 still calling the shots.
    Howard Broad has a chance to redeem himself here.
    If NZ police are able to shine a sanitising light on these matters in a timely manner I for one will be
    gratefull to them.
    Watch for certain elements to begin with the, “Move on, nothing to see here. This happens everwhere
    these days.”
    Lets see if Her Majesties Loyal Opposition will do their job and put some pressure on to get to the bottom of
    this. I will not hold my breath for that to happen.
    If they did they could seize the chance for redemption.
    I forget the name of the senior officer who has allocated 40 officers to the vote rigging in S. Akl.
    Someone will remember his name. He is a New Zealand Hero.

    Of course all the fruit loops will jump in but as others have said once upon a time as the fairy story goes NZ never ever experienced the activities that appear to eminate from (cough) certain groups.

    Call me old fashioned but honesty fair play and plain good governance was the norm up to a decade of so ago.

    Look at the history and show me the evidence to the contrary.

    Now we are not only expected to put up with this crap but we are accussed for being a racist or worse if we raise a concern.

    Geeeez where do some people get off.

    If I go to another country as I have done then I dont expect them to change their way of life their customs their ethics their morals and if they dont I have never screamed racist at them or threatened to kill them all.

    As we continue with our ‘Multicultural’ immigration programme, where we essentially open our borders to all and sundry, and then we DO NOT require those who enter to embrace our values, ethics and principles, then we can expect this kind of thing to increase.

    When are we going to wise up and put limitations on those who come here? And if they don’t tow the line within a given trial period, or if they are found to be guilty of corruption, fraud, violent crime, etc, then we send them back to where they come from. And when I say “trial period”, I’m not talking about three months, I’m talking more like FIVE years of keeping your nose clean.

    No doubt, though, all the appeasers and politically correct Leftard enablers will deem such measures as ‘racist’ and ‘intolerant’, and that “such things/crimes are only committed by a very small minority, and is not representative of the majority of ‘type X’ immigrants”.

    One only needs to look at what’s happenning in Europe and the UK, where Muslim immigrants are already pushing for Sharia based court systems, Muslim only swimming complexes (or similar), etc. And where to speak out against Islam is viewed as a Hate Crime where agents of the state arrest and detain those ‘guilty’ of such ‘crimes’. And let’s not mention cartoons, etc which depict Islam in a bad light – where those who author such material have death threats and Jihad levelled against them, and yet the state refuses to intervene in such cases.

    If we don’t actively resist such things becoming established here, then they will arrive in very short order (give it say five years). And those who remained silent, and made no protest, will only have themselves to blame.

    Interesting, isn’t it, how reasonable comments such as that are wilfully spun as meaning “If we don’t resist such people becoming established here…”

    If we were seeing an influx of neo-Nazi skinheads such as also infest parts of the UK today I’m sure Kris and I and similar people would be lamenting the influx of those customs and warning against their spread. And the very same people who clutch their perfumed hankies and scream “Racist!” and “Xenophobe!” whenever abhorrent practices by some Asian or Middle Eastern people are highlighted, would be congratulating us on our foresight.

    It isn’t xenophobic to say we don’t want the aberrant practices of other cultures in NZ, whether it be celebrating Hitler’s birthday, female genital mutilation, or vote rigging. Xenophobia is a groundless fear of people who are different. Such sentiments are, in contrast, well grounded opposition to practices that are different and damaging, to individuals, to our society, or both.

    Its Actually very serious as National will continue Labours Plan of “branch Stacking” Which long term may deliver tribal rule and increase liabours chance of gaining long term control. Its a fact that in anglo/celtic countries those people vote along class lines, although not always. But basically you have ethnic migrants who almost all will vote labour and vote along tribal lines. Classic example is pansy wong who thinks anyone who is chinese is a good person and should get a passport even if they have dubious backgrounds.

    This council fraud thing even had the Indian candidates working together even from different party tickets to get more ethnic indians on the ward. Its like me collaborating with all white canditates across political lines to get more of us in power. But hey I better keep quiet before lincoln tan smacks me across the face.

    “DO NOT require those who enter to embrace our values, ethics and principles”

    Well you would send all of us away who don’t believe in your particular fairytale if you could. So let’s ignore this mindless drivel and agree that any immigrant who commits a crime ever should be immediately deported, and if the crime is serious enough I suppose we’ll have them serve their sentence here first – some hard labour would be the go. Our laws must be observed by any immigrant, including having the face visible in banks or while giving evidence etc. But let’s not go as far as ridiculously telling them exactly how they must live – I thought most people here were against the government doing that?

    As for the Pete George abuse, it’s really getting out of hand. I find his comments far more balanced than the resident nutjobs. I’m as right wing, anti-communist, Labour hating, disappointed with much of what National has done or not done during their time etc etc as they come. But the comments section here just isn’t what it used to be, and any swinging voters who stop by certainly won’t be swayed by most of it.

    Cue the communist, socialist abuse that isn’t valid but is the only explanation for me finding half the comments here ridiculous.

    Them included. If it is found proven to be Indians. And if so, if they are illegal immigrants they shouldn’t stay here. If they are NZ citizens they should be dealt with as any other citizen would be.

    kowtow: This from the guy who is constantly bagging Christianity.

    That’s not correct. Calling out extreme crap from Kris is not “constantly bagging Christianity” (he gives it enough of a bad look himself). Sure I’ve made it clear I don’t believe in any religion for myself , and I “bag” what I think is crap whether it comes form Christians or Muslims or whatever, but I have often made it clear that I believe reasonable followers of religions have a right to do that, they don’t do anyone any harm, and practicing beliefs does a lot of people some good.
