Steve Phillips understands that a “Rainbow Coalition” of minorities already has the numbers to form the “New American Majority.” If Steve Phillips and his billionaire socialist friends can build that coalition sufficiently in 2018 and 2020, they will become a permanent new American ruling class.

VUWSA President, Nick Kelly, Nice Chap, Shame About the Marxism-Leninism

One reason that Victoria University Student’s Association is helping to organise a talk in Wellington this Saturday, by three Marxist activists, may be its President, Nick Kelly. By all accounts, a very likable chap, Nick is unfortunately also a bit of a Marxist-Leninist. Nick joined the Labour Party as a 14 year old, in 1997 […]

"National Question" Part 4, Noel Hilliard, Propagandist for Maori "Communalism"

The Communist Party of NZ didn’t rely solely on its few Maori comrades to agitate for what it regarded as the Maori “cause”. During the 1940s and ’50s, several non Maori Communist Party supporters began assisting the Maori self determination movement in more subtle ways. I’ll profile three of these men, all active in the […]
