Finally Exposed! Who Was REALLY Behind NZ's Anti-Nuclear Stand?

Check out the latest edition of Investigate when it hits the news stands next week.

RED SQUARES The untold story behind New Zealand’s ANZUS breakdown

New Zealand’s break with the US over nuclear warship visits in 1985 has become an iconic symbol of Kiwi independence. In this new investigation, however, BERNARD MORAN and TREVOR LOUDON argue the New Zealand politicians became pawns in a much bigger game, a game they were unaware of...

Wooooo! Communists! The "peace" and "anti-nuclear" movements were just plots to disarm NZ before the Soviet invasion!

And we would've gotten away with it if it wasn't for 'Ronald Reagan ending the cold war'!

Might I add: 'Wooo! Big story that'll expose the Agnostics/atheists/Marxists for what they really are - lizards from outer space!!'

Actually Trevor (and Ian Wishart) have dug up some interesting facts about the influence of some fairly hard-core communists within the current leftist coalition, facts that some would prefer to minimise. Yes george, most of the peace movement are pro-Soviet. Funny how these people never walk the talk and go and live in a communist slave pen such as Cuba or North Korea for very long.

As an agnostic I dislike being lumped in with Marxists in your description.
What makes you think all unbelievers in religion are necessarily believers in the religon of Marxism?

Marxists and religionists are both anti reason.....two sides of the same deluded coin...

It's funny, given how militaristic the Soviet Union was that they had the Western peaceniks for sympathisers. Russians typically waited in line for hours for basic necessities while their government was creating an ever increasing nuclear arsenal to win an arms race with the United States. Oh, the priorities.

"Yes george, most of the peace movement are pro-Soviet."

I recall their being a few people in the old anti-nuclear movement (which people here seem to be confusing with the broader peace movement) who were pro-Soviet. On the odd occasion they made their Marxist leanings overt they tended to get ignored or laughed at, so they tended to keep quiet about their politics. They weren't particulalry influential, at least, not in the time I was around. I think they stuck around partially out of pig-headedness, but also because they were politically marginalised and had nowhere else to go.

So that would obviously include Christian fundie nutcases like Ian Wishart as well then?

Now now Sam, thats not the line of rhetoric were trying to promote here. Every lefty is a soviet in the making, molding themselves after Stalin, spouting peace while storing up AK47s and reading bedtime stories from Trotsky's diary to their children before eating them.

@Anonymous. Nice one. I tried the same satire here for a bit but got tired of banging my head against the wall. Mmm babies. Wishart is an annoying fundy lunatic.

Ian Wishart holds his religious views strongly. So do Marxists.

I share neither, but I think the Marxists have caused a darn site more
chaos, inhumanity, sheer cruelty, and ignorance than the Christians have in the last hundred years.

Northern Ireland and Serbia are drops in the ocean compared with the gulags, the Great Leap Forward, and Pol Pot.

Yes, every person in the "peace movement" was a dupe, and ignorant of the motives of the Soviet Union.

Do you like the smarmy condescension of the peaceniks.

Satire? No it's just smug pouring out of their ears.

And you can bet they'll be cheering for the new Christchurch Anglican bishop -- liberal, leftist, feminist, and a few other obvious things.

A clear sign the Anglican Church is dead. Let's shift it out of the
central square of Christchurch. It's a fossil of a demonination that in its pre-agnostic days stood for Christianity.
