What are you doing ACT?

by Mr Wainscotting

Yesterday, I said I was going to get away from politics for a bit. But how am I supposed to do that when John “volcano of rage” Ansell, ACT Party’s creative director (until this morning) posted this magical brain spew over on Kiwiblog [emphasis mine]:

“The women who support ACT are not squeamish about speaking bluntly about rational issues (including racial issues). I respect them very much.

“In short, they’ve got guts.

More typical women are less rational and more emotional. They’d rather preserve relationships than rock the boat. Is that not true?

If it were not for the female vote, Don Brash would have become prime minister in 2005 and we’d be a much more prosperous country today.

“But women, by a reasonable margin, preferred to cuddle the various minority groups and spend more of other people’s money on welfare that to take the hard economic decisions. These ‘soft mothers’ voted for short-term gain and long-term pain.

The ‘strong fathers’, also by a reasonable margin, voted for short-term pain and long-term gain. The rational (or should that be Brashional) approach.”

“Now of course I’ll be branded misogynist as well as racist. But again, I’m just pointing out the simple truth.

“The soft mother model doesn’t seem to be universal. In Britain, women ‘got’ Margaret Thatcher’s bold approach (a woman who thought like a man if ever there was one).

“But in New Zealand, when it comes to strong policies that actually allow the country to move forward, the girls let the side down. Three terms of Clarxism was not a rational answer to any rational question.

“New Zealand is awash with parties that represent the female view of the world: Labour, the Greens, the latter-day Nats.

“But only ACT represents rational women and rational men. The party should not be ashamed to say so. When they’re aiming for 100% and getting only 2%, niche marketing theory suggests they’d be better to go hard for the masculine 50% (men and women who think like men) and get 10%+.”

Wha? How do I…? That doesn’t even… What?


I’m not even going to bother. Here’s a robot:
