(Open Letter to the Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade)
Dear Mr. McCully,
I have already written to the Minister of Police on this matter, as it concerns you both.
On the TVNZ programme Q+A on Sunday 22 March 2015, you may have seen the American Lesbian Feminist, Masha Gessen, say that Russian President Putin was:-
She did not give any other reason why he was a supposed to be a threat to Western civilisation. In effect, she was defining Lesbian Feminism as central to Western civilisation and traditional Russian values are as being outside the tradition of Western civilisation. The same sort of ideological insurrection appears to be happening inside the New Zealand Aid Programme (https://www.aid.govt.nz/), which is managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, in cooperation with the New Zealand Police.
The issue is whether the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is deliberately and legally carrying out a policy of bullying independent Pacific island states into abandoning their traditional values and becoming Helen-Clark-style Lesbian Feminist matriarchies.
2. The Unscientific Feminist Insurgency about Domestic Violence in Police National Headquarters
I would like to draw to your attention (in case you are not aware of it) the document PACIFIC PREVENTION OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE PROGRAMME (http://www.ppdvp.org.nz/2014/11/22/ppdvp-briefing-to-afp-ppdpr-dfat-and-attorney-generals-office-canberra-november-2014/), which was a presentation made by a New Zealand Police official to various Australian officials in November 2014. The website which hosts that document is that of the New Zealand Aid Programme, which is managed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade. So what we are talking about here is a joint operation involving both the New Zealand Police and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as well as Australian and Pacific Islands agencies.
They appear to be claiming that:-
They are attempting to change Pacific Island social structure into the Feminist-dominated society that New Zealand is today -- with all the social breakdown and increased crime that that will involve. The fact that the person who made the above-mentioned presentation may well be male is beside the point. Not all Feminists are female.
3. Domestic Violence
Since my father was a New Zealand diplomat, I can be confident in assuming that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, as such, does not know anything about Domestic Violence, but tends to take as Gospel whatever it gets fed on this topic by other Government agencies.
In a letter dated 30 April 2014 which I received from the New Zealand Police, I was told that “Police encourages all people (regardless of gender) to report family violence.”
However, the police support the White Ribbon campaign, and when I searched the Police website on 25 March 2015 for “White Ribbon” (without quotation marks) the results page was: http://www.police.govt.nz/search-results/White%20Ribbon. The top hit on that results page was a page which talked about family violence in gender-neutral terms (http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/white-ribbon-day). However, the second hit was a page (http://www.police.govt.nz/news/featured/white-ribbon-day) which started off by saying:
“White Ribbon Day is the United Nations International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women. The wearing of a white ribbon has been adopted as an international symbol of men's opposition to violence by men against women” (my emphasis).
This creates the impression that the police contradict themselves, are intellectually incompetent and possibly only care about violence by men against women, but do not care about violence by women against men. This attitude would of course tend to discourage men from reporting female violence to the Police. If men do not report female violence to the police, that merely serves to reinforce what appears to be a sexist police prejudice, to the effect that domestic violence is only or mainly something that men do to women.
I refer you to Professor Martin Fiebert’s online annotated bibliography of domestic violence research at http://web.csulb.edu/~mfiebert/assault.htm which states:
This bibliography examines 286 scholarly investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.
Could you please inform me whether the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade is:-
carrying out a policy of bullying independent Pacific island states into abandoning their traditional values and becoming Helen-Clark-style Lesbian Feminist matriarchies.
