NEW ZEALAND'S DOMESTIC SPIES, OBSESSED WITH ILLEGALLY SURVEILLING ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS, MISSED A HEAVILY ARMED RIGHT-WING TERRORIST | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


NEW ZEALAND'S DOMESTIC SPIES, OBSESSED WITH ILLEGALLY SURVEILLING ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS, MISSED A HEAVILY ARMED RIGHT-WING TERRORIST

New Zealand is one of the Five Eyes countries (UK, USA, Canada, Australia, NZ) who collaborate on mass surveillance, and it has a notoriously off-leash, invasive surveillance apparatus that has been caught spying on NZ Greenpeace, the NZ Green Party, the Mana Movements and anti-TPP activists; the state was also caught giving private corporate spies access to its national surveillance data to help them hunt down and neutralize activists; unsurprisingly, the NZ police also abused these records, accessing them without a warrant on thousands of occasions (NZ also recruited the NSA to spy on kiwi activists).

Notably, despite all this surveillance, the NZ security services was either unaware of the white supremacist terrorist who murdered 49 people last week; or did not judge him to be a threat.

This blind-spot is typical of security services, who tend to follow the tacit media/political consensus that treats nonviolent pipeline activists and animal-rights advocates as dangerous terrorists, while ignoring the rise of heavily armed, right-wing militia and white supremacist movements. The rot goes all the way up to the top, with Donald Trump tacitly informing right-wing terrorists that they can continue to have a free pass to operate.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, and there are many things about President Trump that I have come to thoroughly revile, but as far as I can tell, at least at this point, racism isn't one of them.

The spewers of this codswallop cannot say something like this without concrete proof; and I have to ask, where is the proof that Donald Trump is giving a pass to right -wing extremists?

To the writers at Boing Boing; why was someone terrified to put their name to this article, before publishing, to make it appear that it was written by That Greek, Anonymous?!?

I mean, when you are proud of your work, you want the world to see it; so why publish anonymously, if you know you have the hard facts on your side?!?
And if you have the facts on your side, why not publish them?!?

And guys at 5 eyes; in case you don't already know it, I am a Christian Pacifist activist, very active a local faith community. I never advocate violence, and condemn its use.

I am very much for the US resolving its geopolitical problems through honorable, hard-won negotiations rather than through war.

I want to see this country growing stronger in handling its moral responsibilities as a world leader; a better place to raise a family, and a wonderful place to live, learn, and to work.

Does that make me an extremist in the eyes of the people who wrote this? Probably yes; and the ironic thing is, I am the absolute polar opposite of the true definition of that word as I can be.
