New Zealand says “misinformation” and Covid policies seen to be “infringing on rights” could fuel extremism

A secret service initiative

New Zealand authorities have released a guide to help people identify signs of violent extremism.

The secret service says they are usually closely monitoring between 40 to 50 potential terrorists, adding that most used to be motivated by their white identity or by religion – but in the past six months a third group has supposedly emerged; those motivated by politics, particularly around Covid.

“Recognizing a potential warning sign and then alerting New Zealand SIS or police could be the vital piece in the puzzle that ultimately saves lives,” NZSIS Director-General Rebecca Kitteridge said.

“To pay attention and to be alert so that if they see or hear about something that seems off, that worries them and concerns them, they might have a look at this information to say ‘does this indicate to me that this person is actually on the road to committing an attack.’”

The Director-General mentioned Covid specifically, adding that a growing number of people are also concerned about infringement on rights.

“So it could be the Covid measures that the Government took, or it could be other policies that are interpreted as infringing on rights and it’s a kind of what I describe as a hot mess of ideologies and beliefs fueled by conspiracy theories,” Kitteridge said.

Prime Minister  also had comments:

“It would be wrong to imply that we have this significant surge in threat in that regard – are there individuals who subscribe to a particular ideology that may border and dip into violent extremism? Yes,” she said.

On the topic of online misinformation, Ardern said, “it’s not about censorship,” adding “It’s about equipping people to identify when they may be subject to misinformation, making sure we’re building our resilience in our young people to be able to identify it… and to create trusted sources where people know they can go.”

  1. Like arsonists, Kitteridge and Ardern provide the fuel and create the situation whereby someone might eventually do what they want him/her to do, so they can enact even stricter restrictive legislation, and more tightly control New Zealanders. Of course, they will say they are only concerned for ‘public safety’, and how could two women possibly work against the freedom and well-being of their fellow citizens?

    Well, the situation in NZ (and elsewhere) reminds me of Isaiah 3:12. “As for my people, children are their oppressors and women rule over them. O my people, they which lead you, cause you to err, and destroy the way of your paths”.

  2. The young people of New Zealand–well grounded in the principles of free expression and the dangers of extreme statism–block these Ministry of Truth wannabes (Kitteridge and Ardern) from further harming New Zealand’s version of democracy. Public enslavement and mind control do not equate to ‘public safety’.
