CORONER HITS BACK AT CRITICS
‘…Coroner Garry Evans has hit back at critics of his findings into the death of a Waikato mother and baby, saying their widespread criticisms were not matched by helpful analysis.
Evans’ comments came after his provisional findings were sent to the Midwifery Council of New Zealand and the New Zealand College of Midwives.
Evans slammed remarks made by Karen Guilliland from the New Zealand College of Midwives who accused the court of relying on ill-informed medical opinion.
Guilliland criticised the court’s treatment of evidence, its findings and recommendations.
In reply, Evans said it was disappointing Guilliland’s widespread criticisms were not matched by helpful analysis of the case or the standard of the midwife’s training and education.
Evans said Guilliland’s description of three senior obstetricians as “ill informed”, all of whom gave evidence at the inquest, did a grave disservice to each of them and was unhelpful to the court.
Similarly, Evans said although the Midwifery Council of New Zealand criticised his findings, they did not provide an alternative explanation for the “errors of judgement and failures to follow proper midwifery practice that occurred in this case”….’

Eleanor Catton, another ungrateful, leeching “arts” wanker:

A_270614HOSDSBOOK1_620x310 ‘The Taxpayers’ Union says Kiwis have done more than enough to support under-fire author Eleanor Catton, who received upward of $50,000 in funding over the last few years.
…Taxpayers’ Union executive director Jordan Williams obtained the figures after comments by Catton at the Jaipur Literary Festival in India last week about her treatment by New Zealanders after her global success with second novel The Luminaries…’
Update: ‘Eleanor Catton describes ‘culture of fear and hysteria’…’ bawaaahahaha! It’s those eeevil right-wingers, apparently.

‘TRIGGER WARNING’

Nigel Wingrove at Scum Nation nails it:
‘…Of course uncensored bigotry is offensive and upsetting. Words, despite the schoolyard rhyme, can and do hurt. Hatred causes fear and alarm, and so can cartoons. Yet in the US, the Ku Klux Klan can say what they want protected by the First Amendment as can pornographers, racists and fascists alongside communists, anarchists and Islamists for that is the essence of free speech. Hate speech is as valid as nice speech, it is the darkside of the same coin and by prosecuting and silencing all that offends we risk creating a world of bland soundbites and inane platitudes and that would be the greatest offence of all.’

Self-censorship,

leading inevitably to self-subjugation:

A Remus quote:

‘During the 3-1/2 years of World War 2 that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 and ended with the Surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, the U.S. trained 16+ million soldiers & airmen, produced 22 aircraft carriers, 8 battleships, 48 cruisers, 349 destroyers, 420 destroyer escorts, 203 submarines, 34 million tons of merchant ships, 100,000 fighter aircraft 98,000 bombers, 24,000 transport aircraft, 58,000 training aircraft, 93,000 tanks,257,000 artillery pieces, 105,000 mortars, 3,000,000 machine guns, and 2,500,000 military trucks.
We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, dominated the Nazi’s in Europe, island hopped & fought across the Pacific, developed the atomic bomb and ultimately conquered both Japan and Germany.
It’s worth noting, that during the almost exact amount of time, the Obama administration couldn’t build a functioning web site.’

Before the West went collectively bananas:

When kids could learn from play and curiosity. Before the safety nazis. Before the State owned your children.  Before leftist academics with no skills whatsoever knew better than you how to raise your children.
