Golriz Ghahraman V Andrew Atkin: Part 2.

Andrew Atkin:

Part 1. Here.

Yes it's true. Golriz Ghahraman is still deeply in love with me. She hit back at me with a screenshot (my trick!) of the ghastly Andrew Atkin, on her twitter feed.

However! She edited out the bottom part of what I wrote, which kind of frames a different picture. The screenshot below gives the complete picture. She also edited out my identity (you don't need to do that, Golriz. You can make me famous all you want).

It demonstrated my matter-of-fact relationship to the whole thing. I was hardly accusing her of being some kind of Muslim Brotherhood agent, as such, and stated that I doubted that was who she was. I also stated that only under certain conditions could any kind of suspicion be justified. Pretty fair? I think so.

Nonetheless, with a little editing out, she choose to use me to promote her victimhood status [Golriz, if you want to change New Zealand's laws, then you should accept that your unfortunate childhood history means and must mean nothing].

No doubt she didn't want me to see (or reply to) her post because she blocked me from her twitter feed. You will notice the above screenshot was from a Google search (that's how I know it even exists).

Golriz, if you want obnoxious people like me to go away, then all you have to do is explain how we are wrong. Hey - we might be! But until you do this, we "the people" will do our best to hold you to account for your silence. Understand than when you just smear people who have concerns as Islamophobes and bigots, as opposed to providing honest discourse, then that alone can provoke a degree of suspicion - a "what have you got to hide?" effect. It's surely better for your political future just to converse.

So where is this Andrew guy really at?...all I am trying to do is drive the real conversation. I want New Zealand to understand the facts about Islam - at its best and at its worst. I don't want immigration decisions being politicised. I don't want New Zealand making the same mistakes that we now know other European nations have made. Crying out "Islamophobia!" is not a conversation.

  1. Golriz Ghahraman wants us to be moved by the fact that she was persecuted in her childhood by the Islamic regime. She had to spend several of her earliest years growing up in a bunker. We are supposed to believe she is deeply connected to the meaning and value of human rights. That is the basic advert (video below).

    The hard truth is it doesn't quite work that way. Deprived childhoods and serious early trauma create emotional distortions. My Hitler, for example, was heavily abused as a child and a WW1 hero who almost got killed everyday as a delivery man. If only the Germans had known not to be so impressed by his bravery. The man went mad!!

    I know I can look a bit heartless at times, but when it comes to national-level politics the facts must come first. And there are good reasons why New Zealand doesn't let in many people from terrorist-infested countries. Golriz needs to argue those reasons, and not make intellectually meaningless appeals to her unfortunate background.
