Thomas Mair's Kiwi supporters

When I joined an Auckland group formed to protest George Bush's wars in the Middle East back at the end of 2001, I quickly found myself in the company of police officers. A uniformed cop came to the inaugural meeting of the Anti-Imperialist Coalition; plains clothes cops turned up regularly to protest marches and pickets. We could spot the chaps in plain clothes easily: their hastily acquired op shop jackets and pants were betrayed by black polished boots.

The police were taking an interest in the anti-war protests in other cities, too: in Christchurch, for instance, they paid a fantasist named Rob Gilchrist to act as a full-time spy and incompetent agent provocateur inside the movement.

I thought then, and still think now, that the police should be far more interested in the far right of the political spectrum than in left-wingers who protest against bombing the Third World. Like Anders Breivik rampage five years ago, the murder of British MP Jo Cox shows that neo-Nazis pose a real and present danger to the West. Cox's killer Thomas Mair had links with British and American fascist organisations, and he has won support from some New Zealand fascists.

As Pete George shows, the Crusader Rabbit website has hosted numerous comments praising the assassination of Cox, as well as calls for the slaying of New Zealand politicians. Crusader Rabbit's denizens were also big fans of Anders Breivik in 2011.

Are the Kiwi police paying attention?

If New Zealand is anything like the US the answer to the question of whether the cops are watching the right wingers is "probably not." Or, as has turned out to be the case here, "They don't have to infiltrate the meetings; they're already going to them as members." Here in the US people were shocked, SHOCKED! at a number of KKK member cops that were revealed after Darren Wilson killed Michael Brown in St. Louis. But really, if you're a jackbooted racist being a police officer would seem like a perfect job. You get to, um, vigorously assert your dominance over people, and they have great dental insurance. Win-win!

Run game is today's hottest games. Run 3 unblocked version is most played game, run 2 unblocked is the older version, but still favorite players. In addition, return man 2 unblocked game is a big competitor of run game. Right behind return man game is cat mario 4 game which has plays No. 4 in the rankings this week.
