Silly meets silly

Radio NZ has an article on the “turnardern” campaign.

I think the campaign is puerile and silly.

But equally silly is this reaction from the author of the Ardern book:

“Throughout history, attempts have been made to silence women. We’ve been drowned as witches, denied the vote, gaslighted in relationships, had our ideas stolen in meetings, had our voices and views disbelieved and minimised. We’ve been done to, not done by,” she said.

“Seen in this light, #TurnArdern is just another manifestation of this simmering hatred of women that lies just beneath the surface.

Comparing a campaign of turning books around in a bookshop to drowning witches is even sillier than the actual campaign.

In fact the only violence associated with the campaign is against the guy who started it who has had his address doxed and online death threats.
