RODNEY HIDE interviews JONATHAN AYLING



Rodney Hide talks to Jonathan Ayling from the Free Speech Union about Kate Hannah's Disinformation Project, the Susie Fergusson RNZ podcasts in support, hate speech legislation and the fall-out from the Posie Parker protest including the police conduct review. He also discusses what he expects when Posie Parker returns in September.

Thanks Rodney.


This is a one-way street unless we appeal to the higher power. Either we have a higher standard, or it's mob rule. NZ was built on the rule of law inherited from the UK, who built it firmly on the objective and timeless standard of God's Word. While there are some (he and in the US, at least) who would like to see the Bible used as a code of conduct, it isn't that, and hasn't been that since the resurrection of Jesus Christ - except by those misguided souls who think they can climb a ladder to heaven. None will make it on that basis, and the Word reveals the the reason Christ came, lived and d…

I don't support making noise indoors as a protest because it stops people hearing the speakers - but the response to the woman was OTT. If the Julian Batchelor invite I got in my Auckland letterbox is typical, then the meetings are public. I'd suspect if I were Maori and went, however, I'd be stopped.He's obviously catering also to the retirees, as both meetings are on weekdays in working hours.

So the protestors standing outside being as loud as possible with drums, chanting, "singing", spitting, breaking windows, punching people and pouring flour on them etc are mainly retirees then also and why does that matter what age they are? The meetings are private following advice given by police.

I listened from start to finish, and thank you Rodney and Johnathan, it was excellent listening.

But my point has always been so.

Why, oh why do we let these cretinous morons into our heads? I will not be dictated to, told what to say,or to think on the taxpayer funded warbling of a person that has no real life experience, and has no fucking perceived moral high ground over the rest of us,

No. No more.

You stand up and fight like hell for your beliefs.

And I've said this so many times.

So start practicing it.

We push back, 💪 and hard.

Not with violence,,but the best tool available.

Ignore them.

Laugh at them. Ridicule them, easily done…

Whatever happened to proper intelligent debate? Back in the old days there used to be a proper forum for robust organised debates with both sides represented and with an adjudicator, and opportunity to make your case and respond to the opposing view presented. Now all we get is unintelligent bullying and intimidation (or worse). What's next? 'Do we regress back to pre-1840 and the winners (by intimidation) get to feast on the losers.
