Commenting on my post on George Rosenberg, Steve Nice Guy Northland challenged me.
What a duffer you are !
Your extremely pregnant mention of 70’s Wellingtonians George Rosenberg, Shirley Smith, Sutch (I’m surprised you didn’t drag in Bungay who defended the man), Amanda Russell, the Rogers Cruickshank and Steele – all of them known to me though Prof Barton of VUW Law School only formally – what a wonderful stroll down memory lane you occasioned for me !
And if I’m meant to get a hint of commie conspiracy from your picture, ‘fraid I can’t. To a person those you mention were honest, caring, sensitive, good people – highly intelligent, witty, articulate, principled, and importantly, unafraid (in stark contrast to some of the tin-soldier chickenhawks who post on this blog).
So George has gone corporate has he ? Well good on him. Making millions is he ? Again, good on him. Good on him too for giving the ultimate rebuttal to all your commie nonsense.
I guess it’s sort of exciting to postulate darkly as you do that George is a high-flying international construction law legal man while remaining a commie sleeper. Well OK, but mightn’t it just be proof that all your prognostications are just a bit juvenile and flighty ? I reckon 98% would see it that way.
Sorry Trev, you’re always gonna get caught out when you trot out your commie conspiracy nonsense to people who have personal experience of the people you accuse.
You do need to rid yourself of this sometimes dishonestly manifested obssessiveness about commies Trev. It causes you to advance a rather questionable gloss on simple little old things.
I profile people to illustrate covert influence and to demonstrate patterns of political behaviour.
I’m sure George, Amanda, the Roger’s etc were just as lovely as you say.
That’s not the point.
These people tried to abolish our Official Secrets Act and discredit and destroy the Security Intelligence Service.
Had they succeeded, this country would be less free and certainly less secure than it is today.
I take my freedom and my family’s security very seriously and have no qualms about “calling” anybody who threatens that-no matter how “nice” or idealistic they may be.
They also defended an obvious traitor to this country-a man who thought it acceptable to pass information on his friends and colleagues to the KGB.
I’m sure William Ball Sutch was lovely man too, but what he did was beneath contempt.
I believe, that those who defended such an obviously guilty traitor, should be held accountable for their actions.
I place these profiles on record, so that readers have more information to judge those who attempt to change our society.
Bradford, with her anti-Smacking Bill stands to do huge damage to family life in this country. Her proposed legislation, if passed, will over time, seriously lower the quality of life for all New Zealanders-especially children.
As a father of two adopted children, I think that is very serious stuff.
Many give Bradford the benefit of the doubt, because she comes across as ‘nice” and caring person-and no doubt she is.
When you learn however that she is a hard core Marxist, who wants to turn New Zealand into a socialist country, things look a little differently.
I don’t expose socialists to make friends or be popular-anti-communism in 2007 NZ is hardly going to get me on the New years Honours list.
I do it, because, through circumstance and choice, I possess a little knowledge that others might benefit by.
People may read it or not, but at least they now have the option.
The day the MSM does the job, is the day that I will pursue something else.
Don’t hold your breath Steve.
