Wait what? Luxon is keen on a race war and burning the beneficiaries in a kind way???
With all the recent excitement on the grounds of Parliament and various TV polls, some of Chris Luxon’s extraordinary statements of late about where he wants to go in politics have been ignored.
He wants to bring back the welfare culture of draconian rights austerity that has hurt recipients and he repeats the usual mantra of wasteful public service.
Punishing the weak and the poor is the central philosophy of the National Party, they believe passionately in using the stick before you are even allowed to see the carrot, but they will struggle with the mantra of small government.
This pandemic has forced voters to look to the state for protection and they don’t want a smaller state, they want a bigger one that can protect them better!
What’s most concerning though, is Luxon’s jaw-dropping comment that he wouldn’t rule out David Seymour’s recipe for a race war…
National Chief Christopher Luxon thinks Chief Law Officer David Seymour’s idea of running a leader over every part of the civil service has merit, but he won’t say whether references to the Treaty of Waitangi should be removed of our laws.
…he won’t say if starting a race war is something he won’t rule out???
Let’s be very clear, the ACT’s call to remove the treaty from all laws would trigger a race war.
- David Seymour strikes a deal with National in 2023 and launches his purge of every Maori political victory since the treaty was signed.
- The closure of every co-governance agreement would cause outright outrage within Maoridom and trigger a large number of immediate court cases that would stall any legislative process, as every decision taken after Parliament passed the law ending co-governance -governance would be challenged. Political protests would break out across the country and local councils would find local resistance as Māori groups universally established occupations of shared governance assets.
- Similarly, the abolition of Māori seats would trigger huge protests, many of which would quickly escalate into violence. The UN would criticize New Zealand for stifling indigenous voting rights and we would face global condemnation.
- The new government would then try to find someone within Maoridom who would be willing to negotiate new “provisions” of the treaty with them. No one within Maoridom would voluntarily negotiate them and so the new government, while facing increasingly violent weekly street protests, would announce that it is universally negotiating these new arrangements on behalf of Māoridom. The news that the new government has not only ended co-governance and abolished Maori seats, but is also redefining the whole treaty on its own, inspires all violent protests and the new government responds by using more in addition to special laws against terror and paramilitary policing to keep a lid on the growing fury within Maoridom at the loss of their political rights.
- Increasingly, global media attention is scathing towards the new government.
- Donald Trump describes the new government as “wise”.
- While ending co-governance, abolishing Maori seats AND renegotiating the entire treaty on their own, the new government then announces the end of the Waitangi Tribunal. This causes an eruption of anger within Maoridom which manages to eclipse the current rage and entire regions are now in open revolt.
- Even before the new government is able to remove consultation processes, Maori customary rights and all Maori funding, the country is plunged into a veritable race war that the new government is unable to control.
- Large swaths of the military are refusing to open fire on a public demonstration after the new Conservative government ordered them to do so.
David can be as much of a smug intellectual as he wants to be, but selling raw meat racism to angry white men with political promises that would lead to a race war isn’t smart politics, it’s fucking dangerous and it’s fucking ugly.
So why is it so hard for Luxon to rule out?
