White Island tragedy exposed a growing institutional cowardice

On the 1st December 2019 New Zealand’s Civil Emergency  department was transformed into the National Emergency Management Response – NEMA for short.  A week later, White Island erupted on December 9th.

Some Australians are praising New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern for her classy response to the White Island volcano disaster.  Oh, it’s a class act all right.  

I wonder what they’d think if they learned that after the volcano erupted, the emergency services were told not to respond.  The first responders were ordinary New Zealanders – real heroes.  They’re the ones who acted.  The NZ Government had nothing to do with it – although they’ve taken the credit.

After Whakaari/White Island, it’s up to us to save ourselves

Mark Law

Whakaari/White Island and, inset, helicopter pilot Mark Law, who flew to the island to help as soon as he heard of the eruption.

OPINION: “The tragedy at Whakaari/White Island last week exposed a growing institutional cowardice among emergency services, particularly police, that affects their usefulness to citizens.

When the eruption occurred, and the emergency calls started on Monday afternoon, police and rescue services decided that they would not head to the island to help.

It was left to my fellow citizens to respond with māia (courage). Those nearby, and back on the mainland, reacted instantly and humanely. They ran, flew, and sped by boat toward the danger.

Politicians and officials have praised these as “first responders”.  Their use of the phrase was a dishonest attempt to hide that these people were not official first responders, but ordinary people.”

Risk aversion

A man would tell the leadership to “grow a pair” and respond.  To “grow a pair” is to tell someone they don’t have the balls, that they SHOULD have to do something “manly”  But this feminist led leadership isn’t configured to “grow a pair.”

Finding NEMA

Where was NEMA?  Perhaps they were paralysed by OSH – another stifling government department called “Occupational Health and Safety,” which is also led by a woman.  I guess we’ll have to ask Jacinda, our prime minister.

The head of the newly formed NEMA is Carolyn Schwalger, from the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, New Zealand.

It’s not a good look for the New Zealand government.

White Island eruption – What police boat was doing so close to shore

“Police initially refused to reveal the boat’s specific activities so close to the island when asked for information by Newshub, saying it was “providing whatever support was required.”  A spokesperson stressed no individual stepped foot on the island.

However, on Thursday, after Police Minister Stuart Nash blasted police communication and called for greater transparency during the eruption aftermath, police confirmed the boat was the launch site for drones.”

Blind belief, the faith that kills

A British woman was interviewed after the latest Muslim attack in London that left seven dead and nearly fifty injured.  Her son got a knife stuck in him, with the words “this is for Islam!”  She said, “These people saying they’re doing it in the name of God is an absolute joke. The first commandment is “Thou shalt not kill, all faiths share that belief …”

Do they?

Actually, she is wrong about all faiths sharing the belief “You shall not kill.”  This is the trouble, many Westerners believe that Islam has that principle, or “the Golden Rule,” or the rule of conscience.  No.  In Islam, these are supplanted by Sharia law which is cast from the actions and words of Mohammed.

The reason they attack is because their holy book commands it!

Through Noah came the Noahide law, and through Moses the ten commandments.  Both  men from the Bible are regarded as prophets in the Quran. But Muslims regard Mohammed and  Sharia law as greater!

It’s true that God in the Old testament commanded killing, but it was a specific instance where the Israelites had to clear the giants out of Canaan, and those aligned with them.  There was a genetic problem, where Goliath’s brother had hands with six fingers and King Og of Bashan was 14 feet tall.  And a behavioural problem where the Canaanites did abominable things which God detested.

Nowhere else does God command indiscriminate killing.  Jesus, at his arrest, told his disciple to out down his sword, saying “those who live by the sword will die by the sword.”  Was he thinking of Mohammed’s arrival 600 years later when he said it?

It is true that most Muslims aren’t terrorists – but most terrorists are Muslims.    Islam also permits Taqiyya and Kitman, where Muslims can lie to us about their religion being “a religion of peace.”  Another law of theirs which is the opposite of ours, where we are told not to bear false witness.

The media and the politicians must know what’s in the Quran.  It’s their job to know what’s going on.  But they’re still censoring us by calling this “a terrorist attack.”  Why aren’t people allowed to use the ‘M’ word?
