The new National Centre of Research Excellence for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism (aka The Ministry of Truth) has had woke activist Professor Kidman appointed as chief witch hunter.
The advice from the National Centre of Research Excellence for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism will be used by the Government and Intelligence Apparatus to focus the mass surveillance Eye of Mordor on any deemed a threat.
The problem with Professor Kidman’s appointment is that we already have a clear track record from her Twitter activism as to the Professor’s very brittle definitions of hate crimes.
Her criticism of the Listener 7 scientists, her criticism of Auckland University naming their cat after a ‘colonial mass murderer’ and her infamous cancelling of Trelise Cooper for a ‘genoicde dress’ suggest a very micro aggression policing wokeness that finds everyone guilty of something.
Who will the Professor add to her enemies list and will it be places like The Daily Blog who have challenged her?
We already know woke activists have used SWATTING tactics to attack Rachel Stewart, will there be a nark line established for the National Centre of Research Excellence for Preventing and Countering Violent Extremism so woke activists can crowdsource an enemies list for Professor Kidman?
Put aside the easily triggered thresholds of our woke comrades, the truth is we are seeing an explosion of dangerous radicalism in NZ.
There seems to be a disconnect between the way Trevor Mallard and Labour mishandled the Parliament Lawn protests and the sudden explosion of predictable radicalisation.
Newshub reports that threats against the Prime Minister have tripled in 3 years.
Violent political extremism is a real threat in NZ now thanks to social media hate algorithms, pandemic mental health trauma and economic insecurity, I believe there is a 50-50 chance of political violence by fringe elements before the 2023 election which is why any advice going to the SIS or GCSB must be well targeted.
Professor Kidman’s list of threats will be so long and never ending, she will remove attention from the real extremist threats to our democracy.
The threat of extremism to NZ is too important for virtue signalling appointments.
