For the many who pay their taxes, feed their families, are honest, hard-working and do not resort to ripping off their fellow man, the Greens pose a huge threat to society. Their leaders send the message to all law-abiding citizens that there is one rule for the elite few lawmakers who do not have to abide by the law, and another for all you suckers out there who have your money confiscated by the State and are thrown in prison if you fail to pay up.
They are modern reincarnations of the robber barons of old, stealing the money from honest citizens so they can live the high life in their protected, pensioned, elite luxury. They know how to play the system form the cradle to the grave. They are rip off merchants, charlatans and parasites. Turei is the paradigm but take a look at any Green MP and you will find a similar story. They have found that being in politics is a very profitable enterprise.
Not only do they rip off the system but they teach their members how to do it through their charitable trusts. Here on Waiheke, where our Green MP manipulates the local board, her politicians feed ratepayers money in the form of grants into ‘charitable trusts’ run by the Greens . Under cover of these trusts are very profitable businesses which pocket the proceeds. They pay no rent or rates on their ratepayer funded premises, use volunteer labour so they pay virtually no wages, are unaccountable, compete with local businesses, and return no money to the ratepayers or benefit to who fund them.
Nobody should be surprised. The Greens philosophy is one of Cultural Marxism which embraces identity politics, promotes entitlement, and supports all causes that undermine western civilisation. They stopped caring about the environment decades ago, although their useful idiot followers are still fooled into supporting them because they want to feel virtuous. If they didn’t know it before they must know now that the Greens are the very antithesis of virtue.
The Labour Party must be rueing the day they got in bed with these fraudsters. They too have been played for fools and are only now waking up to the mess they have got themselves into. The Greens have taken their votes, while Labour has got nothing from the deal they made earlier this year. Labour is rapidly backtracking but I fear it’s too late. The voters will think they are guilty by association.
The main worry is how her admission of benefit fraud is going down with voters.
Ms Turei lied to get more money, and it goes back to when her daughter Piupiu was born. She says she had no other option, although she did have time to campaign for the McGillicuddy Serious Party in 1993 and the Aotearoa Legalise Cannabis Party in 1996.
It opens up the question - why didn't she just get a part-time job?
"I want also to be a person who engages in New Zealand's democratic community - and I think any person whether they are on a benefit or not - should be entitled to do that," Ms Turei said.
Ms Turei was on the Domestic Purposes Benefit from 1993 until 1998. In three flats during that time, she lied about how many flatmates she had to get extra money.
Ms Turei has said she'll repay all over the overpayment - but the Greens' main worry now is that the admission of fraud will see them punished at the ballot box.
This election might well see the end of the Greens. I fervently hope so. They are parasites on society who deserve nothing more than being sent back to the black hole of oblivion where they belong.
