I guess it had to happen sooner or later.
But this afternoon I was banned by the Standard.
What had I done to upset these delicate flowers of the left?
What had I said that struck fear into the dear little hearts?
What was the unpalatable truth I had put on their little blog?
Or had I been really beastly and said Dear Leader was a Lesbian Anti-Christ who feasted on the blood of newborn lambs?
No, I had replied to the post on John Key donating part of his salary to charity.
I echoed comments on my own post, noting Don Brash's qualifications as a potential High Commissioner to London, adding Dear Leader would alo, as a former PM offer much to a future National government, just as Jim Bolger has served Liarbour.
I also said it was a bit rich Winston accusing John Key of being 'desperate' for donating to charity considering his own efforts with the $158,000.
But anyway, Lynn Prentice says I am banned , amid other things, for calling them "the Liarbour lapblog."
Remember what I said this weekend about the facist left? How they seek to shut down debate, whether it is global warming believers or Democrats in the US threatening donors to conservative causes with IRD investigations and other harassments.
We see it here with the Greens wanting Prime TV not to show the Great Global Warming Swindle. We see it here with Liarbour and its Electoral Finance Act making political involvement much harder and with rules so complicated theparty doesn't know how to follow them itself.
We see it with the repeated bannings and snarky replies over at the Liarbour lapblog, the Standard.
Who are the tolerant? Who ar the believers of free speech? Who is happy to enjoy debate?
It is the right! It is blogs like this and others in the VWRC where bannings are quite rare.
True, as it is their property, the Standard is free to allow whoever it wants to comment on their little blog. But as the showcase blog of the left, it had failed in what might be an aim for such new media, stimulating debate and ideas.
Instead , the Standard has revealed its true colours. It is not part of the democratic process like the other blogs, no it is a tool of the facist left, one that will have ever more control of our lives if we let them.
