The topic is conspiracy nutjobs of the kind distributing the leaflets on the first page. One of those leaflets directly links to a site which is ten times worse than the leaflet. I'm not aware the Green Party tolerates anything like that.

Handle9: 

The Green Party should only care about what I say they should care about trope.

It’s funny how it never applies to any other party.

By the same “logic” a true National party would only care about protecting the countries borders, the true Labour Party would only care about industrial relations and the Association of Consumers and Tax Payers would only care about consumer and tax law.

 

The Green Party, National Party, Labour Party and so on can care about what ever rocks their collective boats. I can care or not care about whatever party(s) I like or dislike.

Try again. That wasn't the point I was making.

its nothing to do with green party. 

 

my point is about the green movement (as someone likes to put it), in which case those sorts of leaflets are not uncommon. people standing outside shops "educating" people. even links to really bad stuff is not uncommon. as i said, same tactics and methods are used. which is why many end up being exploited by the conspiracy nut jobs.

 

you can deny it exists but a simple walk down town and chat with a few will prove otherwise. but thats not "evidence" so that doesn't count, right.

It might be evidence if it was properly documented and presented. It is not if we just have to take your word for it.

The point you were making is you want the Green Party to only care about what you say they should care about.

Lots of anti-vaxers

 

Lots of Anti-climate change

 

Lots of conspiracy radio etc

 

Lots of anti imigration

 

Lots of anti 3 waters

 

Lots of anti Maori / te tiriti / Maori street signs / co-governance

 

Now getting the 15 minute city junk

 

The "greenies" have been conspicuous by their absence , mind you I tend to associate with those who have a PhD in the area.

From the last pages, I can see the current conspiracy theory here is that the Green Party harbours conspiracy theorists.

 

Or are some of you getting things twisted?

Hmmm, that made me stop and ponder - when does it stop being one weirdo with a strange view, and become a conspiracy theory?
