Sensible Sentencing Trust.
Only lefty gang apologists would be surprised by the latest massive bust of drugs, guns, money, and gang members across New Zealand. In fact, in a hilarious move, the explanation coming from the Waikato Mongrel Mob public relations spokesperson for all of these arrests is that it is all somehow just a ‘political smear campaign’. I’m not even sure how that would work, but I have to say I’m impressed with how far ‘off the planet’ someone would have to be to even think of that as a reply.
The truth, as every normal level-headed person already knew, is that gangs are bad news and survive on the selling and distribution of drugs – mainly meth. We already knew that they don’t listen to any laws the government wants to bring in around gun control and hence are holding multiple illegal firearms. We already knew that a gang’s entire purpose and intent is to be anti-authority and anti-establishment, and that the use of intimidation and fear is integral to how they function. So most of us didn’t bat an eyelid about what they found when the police bust occurred – we were mostly surprised that it even happened in the first place, given the track record of this government with law enforcement and the gangs.
The one thing that should be raising the biggest red flag about this whole scenario, on reflection, is just how seriously out of touch Marama Davidson is in accepting a guest speaking spot at the Waikato Mongrel Mob Kingdom gang-pad hui. Bear in mind, she didn’t attend as a Green MP, she attended as a government minister.
Of the arrests across the country, three of them were ‘senior Waikato Mongrel Mob Kingdom members’ – the very members she was speaking with, as a minister, and defending as a ‘community group’, not three weeks ago. This is what happens when lefty loopy ideology meets reality.
The fact that the gang’s overly vocal public relations spokesperson Louise Hutchinson doesn’t want to take media interviews on the matter should speak volumes to the PR disaster that this situation has caused.
Over the past few years, the gang has been attempting to convince the public that they are different, integrating into society, and ‘not like the rest’. If Marama Davidson didn’t see that she was being used as a part of that, it beggars belief.
For all the efforts and attempts at glamorising, normalising, and politicising the Waikato gang – it has all come crashing down to naught. Not because of anything ‘extraordinary’, but because of what we all already knew was the ‘ordinary’ reality of what gangs and gang members do.
The Police have done a good job and they should be commended. They have worked cross-agency and internationally on a very complex set of multiple operations and they have nailed it – thus far. They have got a lot of illegal firearms, drugs, money, and criminals off our streets. That’s always a good thing. National and Act shouldn’t continue to bark up the wrong tree (see the press releases).
What will be interesting is what happens from here with the Waikato Mongrel Mob public relations spinster, and most interestingly, what Marama Davidson will say the next time she is invited to another hui on the pad. I wonder if reality has bitten.
