New Zealand’s oppressive reaction to mosque massacre alarming: Possess or share gunman’s video you’ll face 10-14 years in prison

 

Some folks have had the ill-advised idea that New Zealand is the place to move if you are seeking refuge from the danger and craziness of an upside-down world careening toward global governance and totalitarian rule.

The NZ authorities’ oppressive response to the tragic Mosque shootings should put that erroneous idea to bed for good. In fact, the radical knee-jerk reactions of the Socialist party dominating the nation’s cabinet is nothing short of alarming. Any previous rights to free speech are falling by the wayside in New Zealand. National police are encouraging legally owned guns to be turned in. The government has pledged to overhaul gun laws.

The national police are warning residents there that they face as many as 10 years in prison for knowingly possessing a copy of the “objectionable” video that the shooter live-streamed during his attack. If the video is shared, the sentence goes up to 14 years. Companies such as web hosts are on the hook for fines up to $137,000 US under the same law.

Predictably the video quickly circulated on the web as was the shooter Brenton Tarrant’s manifesto. Yet as quickly as it was shared online, efforts were underway to eliminate online access. Mainstream platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and Scribd scrubbed the materials from their sites. YouTube has even disabled their search filters to prevent Christchurch shooting searches.

Open dialogue about the shooting is also apparently prohibited in New Zealand, as Dissenter, ZeroHedge, Milo Yiannopoulos, and others have been banned by New Zealand ISPs for voicing concerns about the government’s responses to the atrocity.

But it is the citizens there who are bearing the most risk. Locals have already been arrested by police for sending “malicious communications.”

Accentuating the growing environment of fear and distrust, NZ police are encouraging citizens to turn in those who are not in compliance with the draconian clampdown. Their tweet says:

“NZ police would like to remind the public that it is an offense to share an objectional publication which includes the horrific video from yesterday’s attack. If you see this video, report it immediately. Do not download it. Do not share it. If you are found to have a copy of the video or to have shared it, you face fines & potential imprisonment.”

If this is not enough … a subsequent tweet by police is encouraging citizens to turn in their firearms (see tweet below) even ahead of changes in the current gun laws.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s socialist cabinet has committed to overhaul the nation’s gun laws, with an announcement on their proposals within the next week. Ardern describes herself as a social democrat and progressive. Tellingly, in 2008 she was elected President of the International Union of Socialist Youth.

She is being praised around the world by many leaders–most of whom are globalists and who are impressed by her fast thinking in taking advantage of the crisis.

Meanwhile, in the Twitterverse, false flag accusations are flying amid clear evidence that the shooter was actually an admitted leftist and fascist.
