Sky News host Andrew Bolt says “we have evidence that woke politics is making the west desperately weak” after New Zealand’s Foreign Affairs Minister refused to criticise China on COVID-19’s origins or on the treatment of Hong Kong and its activists.
“As I’ve said before, New Zealand is selling out Australia – and the west – to keep sweet with the genocidal Chinese dictatorship,” he said. “New Zealand figures other democracies can do the fighting. New Zealand can meanwhile sweet talk China and clean up businesswise. But it may be worse than that. I think woke culture is also to blame. “New Zealand’s foreign minister is dizzy with her new age earth worship and old nature gods. For her, China is an ally in the fight against global warming, which seems to her far more important than the danger of war. China would be laughing.”
Martin comments: China fighting global warming? Good God, can our Foreign Affairs Minister really be that naive and misinformed? Or is some corruption involved? There’s a lot of kowtowing going on here.

Are we 5 Eyes members or not? And lest readers underestimate NZs importance in this arena, be assured that NZ waters and territory are of global strategic significance!
