jeez you guys, do you think maybe the public health people were trying to eliminate the competition?
because that’s pretty cold.
>> But McClelland said wizardry no longer fits the "promotional landscape" of the South Island's largest city, and new programmes "will increasingly reflect our diverse communities and showcase a vibrant, diverse, modern city."
Translation: too much white people stuff. We need to get rid of the white people stuff and racism will go away.
Also, "increasingly reflect our diverse communities and showcase a vibrant, diverse, modern city." I feel like they could have squeezed in the word "diverse" at least three more times:
"increasingly diversely reflect our diverse communities and diversely showcase a vibrant, diverse, diversely modern city."
This smacks of white supremacy to me. Getting rid of a charming old man practicing a romanticized version of the native culture isn't going to accomplish anything if you don't fix your language. #newspeak
He must have refused the vaccine. New Zealand is now cursed and doomed.
Since he's already over there in the south Pacific, he can become the Wizard of the other Oz.
He can help them find the heart, brains, and courage to take back their home.
He should start a gofundme. I'd wager he'd made a hell of a lot more than 11K and change.
the good news is, the wizard said he's going nowhere. NZ politics are getting really, really ugly with the covid and climate stuff. besides the ridiculous overreaches, they just lie. lie. lie and expect people to start believing it. Unfortunately, a lot of people are. ;>( also unfortunately, there seems t be very little politician opposition to what's going on in the government--so far it's us awake people doing the lifting. So f'ing sad!!!
It's tragedy after tragedy in Christchurch. Terrorist attack, insane lockdowns, and now their wizard is gone.
he is going to a different realm of middle earth.....
Just like Zwarte Piet in Holland. So much special tradition. My 97 year old daddy remembers so many happy fun memories of Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet. I have vague memories as we came to the US when I was 9. So I do recall the stars in my eyes.
Oh well. We humans have such a racist beginning.
Obama's crusade is to change our country, turn it into Islam
Please come back as a white wizard and do your thing.
