Remember when ACT were on 1%?
The middle class woke identity politics activists started a culture war the Left could not win and started their attacks on Free Speech.
Remember what I said at the time?
Remember how I called on the middle class woke identity politics activists to not start a free speech war because it would inadvertently awake the dormant political fault line of ACT?
Remember how I warned that the uber woke cultists would provoke a political backlash with their woke extremism?
And what happened?
Why the middle class woke identity politics activists doubled down and kept providing ACT with political ammunition that now sees them as the 3rd largest political party in one electoral cycle!
The middle class woke identity politics activists refuse point blank to take any responsibility for providing ACT with political ammunition because the middle class woke identity politics activists refuse to acknowledge how alienating their bullshit is.
The Left needs to focus on universal economic justice, not the mine field of easily triggered feelings from the social justice woke.
The NZ Left refuse to ask how and why ACT are polling so high, because it then demands a reflective look at how the Woke and their culture war attempts have back fired horrifically, and that would require a level of self reflection the Woke simply don’t have.
I’m excited to see how the Woke can get ACT to 17% this election.
Meanwhile the rich are laughing all the way to the bank as the Left cancels each other for misusing pronouns.
