When Parliament rushed through the Wuhan Virus Public Health Response Bill last week, the redoubtable Cameron Slater observed that New Zealand had thereby formally become a police state. The following atrocities from the Act make clear that this claim was not hyperbole. Allow time for the enormity of these abominations to sink in. Note the repeated use of the term "without limitation" in the enumeration of the totalitarian powers granted here.
Ask yourself how long it will be before unWoke opinions, especially on the subject of the Wuhan virus, are deemed by Woke "enforcement officers," unelected and unaccountable, to promote the spread thereof or hinder efforts to prevent the spread thereof; how long before Woke constables raid the houses of the offending unWoke opiners without a warrant—as they are now empowered to do—and haul them off to indefinite solitary confinement in some specified Gulag—as they are now empowered to do?
There are no words to express the treasonous viciousness of this legislation; none to capture the evil of the regime that passed it. Tragically, if the words did exist, very few would use them; part of the success of the Fascist Woke is that they have created a world in which evil is deemed merely "concerning," "troubling," "disappointing" or "problematic."
We are no longer part of the Free World; we are indeed a police state, a dictatorship and a banana republic, tyrannised by a grotesque, fry-quacking, upward-inflecting, infantile/moronnial, Narcissistic gargoyle whose stupidity is matched only by her evil and whose power is now "without limitation." That is not "concerning"; it is cataclysmic:
