Russel Norman – revolutionary


So now we know, not only is Wed Wussel arrogant, with his State of the Planet speech recently but he now supports the overthrow of the state.

Adam’s evidence, the good doctor’s participation in the Harawira clan’s march at Waitangi advocating revolution.

Conesequently, given Dr Norman’s support of the Popata led march, Adam assumes that Norman supports:

1  Overthrow of the government

2. Assertions that John Key is a murderer, as that is what the Popatas purportedly believe, supported by Uncle Hone

Therefore, Adam is of the view that the Greens through this action have very clearly demonstrated their unfitness to be involved in government in NZ in any way whatsoever

    Well it appears Russell Norman and well myself are in good company when it comes to advocating revolution.

    “God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty . . . And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.”
    Thomas Jefferson.

    Would perhaps make the powers that be reconsider their obvious contempt of the public by continually flagrantly breaching their promises such as John Key’s pledge not to sell public assets, such as in the current governments push to privatise the country’s water.

    On Thursday 18 November 2010, the Local Government Act 2002 Amendment Bill was passed into law under urgency. National, ACT and United Future voted in favour of the bill. Labour, the Green Party and the Maori Party opposed.

    The Select Committee received 414 submissions on the Bill. 360 of these expressly opposed water privatisation.

    The aspect of the act that deals with water management:

    * allows councils enter into contracts with private companies to run water services for up to 35 years (the current limit is 15 years)
    * allow private companies to own and control water infrastructure for the duration of these contracts (the current legislation requires councils to retain ownership and control of water

      I think Jefferson had something different in mind. Given that he was a slave owner I hardly see him as bastion of support for the Popatas, furthermore given the Framers strong belief in property rights I do not see him as overly concerned about private ownership.

    I dunno Adam, robertguyton is pretty much an expert on losing the plot, given his long experience with it 😉

    This is my first visit to this blog and my last….your post is nothing more than a “you support this, therefore you support that”

    Its just twisting one person’s actions or beliefs into your own gain, just because I sometimes break the law and go over 50kph in a 50kph zone, does not mean I break all laws, or any other for that matter.

    Your argument is lame, tired, pathetic and a waste of time…you could have posted anything here…do something useful with your life….yawn

      So, why should I care?

    “Therefore, as far as I am concerned Norman is contaminated by the company he keeps.”

    “As well given the Popata/ Harawira tendency to racism I am forced to conclude that Norman is a racist as well.”

    Didn’t we see John Key walk onto the marae arm in arm with Titewhai Harawira?

    Too easy Adam.

      You’re so good at twisting things Robert. Key was escorted by Titewhai Harawira as part of the powhiri as he arrived at Waitangi. Maori traditionally offer a warm welcome onto a marae to manuhiri, even though the kai koreromay later speak frankly.

      The Popata boys were not part of the powhiri. Indeed, they tried their utmost to disrupt it, by insulting John Key, and accusing him of things which he patently had not done. Their behaviour will have detracted from the mana of the tangata whenua. That Russel Norman has chosen to associate himself with such extremists is telling.


      • 08/02/2011 07:28

        Adam – you are telling me that Key hasn’t chosen to associate with Titewhai Harawira??
        Talk about twisting the facts to suit your argument!
        Key didn’t choose to associate with Tama Iti either? That hongi photograph then – a fake? Nose to nose, sharing breath. Hand in hand with Mrs Harawira!
        Isn’t Iti one of those charged for the Urewera terrorist business?
        Key, associating with radicals and terrorists!


        • 08/02/2011 07:29

          Tame Iti.

          I notice that Key didn’t associate with the Dalai Lama. Refused to meet with him.
          Guess that’s what you are refering to as well.


    • 08/02/2011 07:24


      If you look at some of the pictures Key looks to this observer’s eye as less than happy at being with Mrs Harawira.


      • 08/02/2011 07:55

        Poor mouse!
        While we are on the topic of associating with undesirables (that’s what you mean, isn’t it?), how about that Tony Veitch eh! He’s got some nasty wife-kicking habits, hasn’t he, yet Key’s happy to appear on Veitch’s show and joke around with ol’ Veitchy, talk about hot women and how lucky Tiger Woods is (nudge nudge!!) .
        Association eh Adam!
        You make a very good point!

    Well if that’s what Adam thinks, then Adam his over-extrapolated to such an extent that he’s entirely lost the plot!
    Poor Adam!


    • 07/02/2011 20:26


      I have not lost the plot.

      The Popatas advocate revolution.

      The Popatas, part of the Harawira whanau accused John Key of murder.

      The Greens including the deluded Aussie, Dr Norman, marched in support of the Popata/Harawira protest.

      Norman has not in so far as I have seen issued a statement disavowing the Popatas. Therefore, as far as I am concerned Norman is contaminated by the company he keeps.

      As well given the Popata/ Harawira tendency to racism I am forced to conclude that Norman is a racist as well.
