A great own goal

May 19th, 2012 at 10:09 am by David Farrar

A wonderful own goal at . Zetetic blogged on :

He lashed out that those who pointed out he’s voting for he never told his electorate he would support.

Now this is a lie the left keep repeating. And watch it bite them hard.

Pete George pointed out this was a lie and Eddie ranted:

three choices. Present evidence Dunne explicitly said he would support the partial sale of the energy companies and air nz, withdraw your comment, or face a three month ban. 

So Mr George gets to work.

First he brings up this quote from Zetetic him or herself:

and National is on a razor edge, with a 2 seat majority but the rest of Parliament opposing asset sales if ACT and Dunne lose, or on Dunne.

Absolutely proving Zeletic is lying about Dunne. He warned people before the election that a vote for Dunne was a vote for asset sales, and then afterwards he claims no one knew a vote for Dunne was a vote for asset sales. I think we now understand why he or she does not dare to post under their own name. They would be unemployable.

A second quote is found, this time from Eddie before the election:

This is high stakes stuff. If ACT goes and Dunne loses too, as looks likely, National will be bereft of natural allies. And National’s support is tracking down to the point where it can’t govern alone. The Banks endorsement should only make that more likely.

What happens in this scenario? There would be no parties that would support its asset sales policy through Parliament, except perhaps the Maori Party

So Eddie is also exposed as a liar. Remember this if anyone from the left ever claims Peter Dunne’s position was unknown – the left were actively campaigning against him on the basis they knew he had said he would vote for partial asset sales proposed by National.

Eddie, also very glad he does not use his full name or possibly even his real name, doesn’t give up and basically says that what he said is not important, but that he will ban Pete George for three months if he doesn’t come up with something directly from Dunne.

Then the final knock out blow as Pete George quotes from a live chat on Stuff:

The Dominion Post:
To Peter Dunne, from Joe Brown: Will you say no to all state asset sales like Labour and Charles Chauvel have this year?

Dunne Peter:
In principle, UnitedFuture does not advocate selling state assets, but in the event National putst up its mixed ownership model for the electricity companies and Air New Zealand we would be prepared to support that, provided the maximum was 49%, with a cap of 15% on any indivudual’s holdings. We would never support the sale of Kiwibank, Radio New Zealand or control of water assets.

Game, set and match to .

A huge thanks to The Standard. The left have got away with lying about Dunne for months on end now. Thanks to this thread they started, we now have nice documented proof that they have been lying.

Labour with their proxies in “People’s Power ” have an Operation Ohariu next weekend to try and build opposition to asset sales. I wonder how many of them will also spread lies about Dunne’s position?

I’d point out in Ohariu National got many mroe party votes than Labour and Greens combined, and that Dunne and Shanks (both known to vote for the mixed ownership model) got almost 20,000 electorate votes between them and Chauvel got 13,000 and Hughes 2,000 so not even close.

    The hateful vitriol that fills The Standard quite honestly makes me worry for the future of socialist thought.

    It’s hate, envy, hate, envy. It’s like we haven’t gone any further than the Russian peasantry in 1917.

    There’s not real collectivist thought. They’re just as individualist as you rightists.

    (I know this is vaguely off topic, but it mentions the Standard, and I needed to rant and get it off my chest. And sigh heavily)

    Asset sales are a horrific policy. NZers voted John Key in. That’s democracy. We on the left fucked up, didn’t win, we have to deal with it.

    Furthermore, I think Peter Dunne’s position is quite similar to that of most of your ordinary middle kiwi voters. Mr. Dunne should not concern himself (and I’m sure he doesn’t) with “Peoples’ Power Ohariu” as I expect approximately zero of them voted for him (if any of them even live in Ohariu at all).

    Nobody (except maybe a few ACTivists & Libertarianz) really wants to sell any of the state’s assets, but doing nothing is not an option – it’s that or raise taxes. The difference being that raising taxes slows down the economy, whilst floating these shares can have a stimulating effect, and improve the range of shares on the NZX.

    The whole asset sales campaign is a great example of how Liarbore truly in fact has always worked. It illustrates every single tactic and strategy they use all the time, on just about every issue. This happened all the time, during Hulun’s reign. Why the hell the Nats don’t bother to point this out to the electorate by throwing Liarbore’s tactics straight back at them, all the time, until they stop doing it, I have no idea. For that is the only way to stop them and its the obvious thing to do.

    Their goal is to implant a falsehood in people’s minds and they do this using propaganda tactics.

    First, determine the central meme. It has to be simple. A meme is something that is not true, but you pretend it is. In this case, their meme is: there is no mandate.

    Second, in everything you say and do in relation to the meme, you must behave as if it already exists and has always existed as a self-evident matter of simple observable fact. This is critical because remember, in reality, in the subject’s mind, it doesn’t exist and what you have to do is make the subject believe that actually, the meme always did exist, it’s just that they weren’t consciously aware of it until that nice Liarbore party started pointing to it and then you realised, oh of course, right.

    And that’s the basic principle of what they do. And by going round the country for months and years on end talking about the same thing and now and again organising meetings etc etc gradually more and more of the poor susceptible public become convinced that yes, Liarbore is quite right, there was never any mandate, that’s quite true.

    Of course the wretched dispicable nature of these tactics doesn’t worry Liarbore one little bit. The fact they are lying makes absolutely no difference to them. Disgusting creatures aren’t they.

    I just wish the 90% of people to whom politics is the first veil which they never ever penetrate would just wake their stupid little brains up and smell the fucking roses, once in awhile. It’s just so obvious to those 10% of us who have penetrated the first veil and so very, very tragic, for this is precisely how wars are started and how societies are engineered into certain behaviours such as us tolerating the fact our education systems have become extremely dumbed down by comparison to yesteryear, our family values have become significantly weakened compared to yesteryear, etc. All of which leads to social and individual traits such as lack of love for self and others, we are full of fear and envy and pride and lust, etc etc etc etc etc etc.

    And the left do nothing but promote this 24/7/365. Conservatives don’t, but they stand aside and tolerate it, which is why our societies have crumbled over the decades. You tell the last time a conservative really stood for family values. They get laughed out of court by the media and the useful idiots who simply turn back to their bread and circuses. In my view conservatives who stand aside and say nothing while this bullshit is being flung at the helpless child-like 90% are just as guilty as those who do the throwing.

    Reading through the comments there it does appear that Eddie has backed down as the 8:17 comment from Pete includes:
    “Pete, congrats on tracking down the one time Dunne’s strategy slipped and he admitted he would support National’s asset sales. It took you along time and no-one else had been able to find such a quote. So, congratulations, you’ve proved that Dunne accidentally told the truth once in a forum that no-one noticed. Ban rescinded. Eddie”

    While Eddie insinuates Dunn mislead the public its to good that he acknowledges that there has been no lie on Dunn’s part or inconsistency with his position. Like most left wing lunatics I am sure that rescinding the ban would have been extremely difficult for Eddie.

They claim those previous statements are irrelevant, and refuse to discuss them further. The actual words “I was wrong” or anything like it never appear.

    When they have a choice between then wrong, or now wrong, they still choose never wrong.

    I’ve been prepared to go where others can’t be bothered going. I’ve probably spoken up and stood up to things here as much as anyone, and more than most who are still moaning at the same things, as they were when I first started here three years ago.

    Some use blogs as a pastime and for entertainment, that’s fine, there choice.

    But I’d suggest that I’m one of the few here – and at The Standard – on an open honest (mostly) positive mission. A very determined mission.

    I often get accused of fence sitting – they accuse me of that at TS too. Some people who don’t like the fence between their and opponent ideological fantasies being pulled down, so they resort to name calling and labelling.

    I loved these comments:

    I am somewhere to the left of Karl Marx

    We know, although you’ve never explicitly stated what about your beliefs is to the left of Karl, so I’ve always guessed Libertarian Socialism with none of that nasty vanguard-party-dictatorship-of-the-proletariat stuff, although that is more Lenin. Still, Karl left the space.

    The hateful vitriol that fills The Standard quite honestly makes me worry for the future of socialist thought.

    Heh, heh, heh. That’s because in terms of building anything that works there is no socialist future, just more of the same stuff that’s degenerated to totalitarianism every time.

    However, you’ve still got Gramsci and company. They’re doing quite well in terms of dissolving Western societies down to ant-heaps: perhaps the revolution will “build” on that.

    It’s hate, envy, hate, envy. It’s like we haven’t gone any further than the Russian peasantry in 1917.

    Lightbulb time perhaps?

    Although it would be more accurate to say that you have not moved on from the hatred that elites like Lenin and Trotsky had for other elites – with the poor, bloody peasants crushed in between. They never held anywhere near as much hatred for the Kulaks as your hero’s did, mainly because they aspired to be like them, until they saw them getting dispossessed and then shot.

    Stick with Gramsci. His ideas are still working quite well: pity they’re all about destruction – but hey, gotta break a few eggs, etc.

I know because UF was my party of choice at the last election. I was fully prepared to give him my vote knowing it would mean asset sales. I felt the same as him about it, not something I want to see happen but if it has to be done make sure it’s done right, limited to what National has already stated will be for sale and prevented from going to one party. I even recall hearing a rare Peter Dunne radio ad in which he stated exacty that!

    So let’s chunk this down a bit.
    Pete is threatened with a three month ban because he is not, allegedly, truthful. Eddie and the Zed guy adamantly say that Dunne did not support assets sales. Pete was, however, telling the truth. Eddie and the Zed guy were not. So, is the three month ban threatened because he was being untruthful, in which case Eddie and the Zed guy must be banned, or was it threatened because it is unacceptable to expose the Standard’s propaganda and any threats must be suppressed?

    Is there any correlation between this behaviour and Andrew Little’s assumption that if you cannot do it civilly the appropriate recourse is to thuggery? I guess the 9 years of labour give us a clue to that.

    Taken from the United Future website, 2010.

    UnitedFuture leader Peter Dunne is warning the Government to be careful about any potential sale of State assets.

    He said selling State assets for no more than ideological reasons would rightly arouse strong and widespread public opposition.

    “Simply selling assets on the vague premise that they would be better off in the private sector is not a good enough argument, but equally Kiwis are no longer in Labour’s camp of ‘shock, horror, hysterics’ at the very idea of some degree of asset sales.

    “The vast majority of New Zealanders certainly think privatisation went too far in the past, but they may now be more open to a proper discussion on some degree of private ownership – New Zealand ownership – of some assets,” Mr Dunne said.

    “There is an argument that the capital base of some state-owned businesses needs to be expanded to enable them to remain competitive and to grow, and that the State is not in a position to fund this expansion.

    “I think New Zealanders are open to that argument – but they will not tolerate open slather, and National needs to understand that.

    “If the Government wants to revisit its existing policy, it will need to be very specific about its plans, including the scope for options short of privatisation such as publicly listed debentures, or limited share floats to raise the capital required,” he said.

    Mr Dunne said he detects no public enthusiasm for the sale of assets like Kiwibank, particularly if this would see their ownership transferred overseas.

    “I think there could well be more public support for ‘Mum and Dad’ type investment arrangements, provided the case was made well in advance and there were built-in safeguards to ensure majority New Zealand ownership would be retained.

    “Those safeguards could include restricting the number of shares institutions might hold, and limiting the sale of shares to New Zealand-owned institutions

    “This would stop a long way short of privatisation as we have known it in the past,” Mr Dunne said.

    “Heh, heh, heh. That’s because in terms of building anything that works there is no socialist future, just more of the same stuff that’s degenerated to totalitarianism every time.”

    – And that’s sad. When you think about it, socialist/collectivism has a wonderful narrative: Together we are going to build a better tomorrow.

    It’s not about individuals, it’s about the greater good. There will be sacrifices. Some liberals will not get what they want. We may have to destroy some heritage buildings to build railways etc.

    But it’s about that goal, that wonderful, gleaming future. One step at a time.

    I honestly don’t see that simple thought coming through in today’s left
    The Greens are far too focused on individual rights (weed and other hippie causes)
    Labour is just National-Lite

    Until Shearer/Cunliffe comes out and says “Labour is the party of altruism. We are going to build a better New Zealand. Some groups will suffer, but the vast majority will do better.”

    Interestingly I think Key’s recent increase in prescription charges to pay for cancer treatments was the best socialist policy we’ve had for a bit. Unfortunately the rest of his portfolio is so extreme.

    I commented yesterday on WO that this type of behaviour is a psychological defence mechanism called psychological projection or projection bias. When people deny their own thoughts or emotions or behaviours, they will often ascribe them to the outside world. It’s a process of imagining or projecting the belief that others are to blame for self-failure, short-comings or weaknesses.

    This projective defence mechanism has become a characteristic of the political left since the beginning of the Helengrad Era.

    Chicken Little’s characterisation of process servers as “leather jacket wearing thuggish guys” is completely consistent with the theory that the individual “projects” something of himself or herself into everything he or she does. As WO commented: “Leather jacket-wearing thuggish guys? Yep sounds like a union boss on the picket line to me.”

    You see it happening consistently with Trevor Mallard, who is quick to label as liars people who have different views to his own, when his own adherence to the truth is wholly situational.

    The team at Thestrandard is no different. To borrow from Chicken Little, they’re “leather jacker wearing thuggish” people who suppress and subvert the truth whenever it differs from their polemic. They, Mallard, and Chicken Little are amongst the many reasons why Labour must never be allowed to return to power.

    Ugh. Anyone, including any right wing bloggers, who wastes their time on The Standard obviously have no jobs/nothing better to do with their retirement.

    Eddie comes back for more: http://thestandard.org.nz/dunne-angry/comment-page-1/#comment-473408

    He doesn’t seem to be a happy sort of chap/chappess, maybe that’s another joe bloggs example of ANGRY people accusing Dunne of being angry.

    Pete,

    When you get Lynn the “sysop” (read twisted old control freak nerd) with a girls name so het up he try’s to hack your PC and actually codes to pick up your phraseology you know you’ve beaten them.

    Keep up the good work and you’ll get there soon!

    *Hi Lynn, Eddie et al!!!!!!!*

    [DPF: You seem to have a reading problem, as I blogged on Crimp this morning]

    Don’t get rude, it was well after I posted that comment. 11am compared with my 10.29. But thank you for doing so.

    Demanding a blogger deal with your issue on a completely different, unrelated post is poor form.

    lesterpk – that and many other things have been pointed out to them, numerous times. Which makes it look like they are not worried about facts. They seem to have other motives. More on this today.
