  1. Just as stunning is how many NZers are caught up in protesting American issues -- not protesting on the basis of any principle, but protesting *as if* they are living in America.
    Because they watch American news channels, it's as if they think they're actually there.

    1. But their protesting is perfectly consistent with identity politics. It's not about an injustice suffered by one individual from one police officer, it's about pushing a narrative of victimhood for minorities and "white supremacy".

    2. Indeed. If it were actually about justice, more actual injustice might have been removed.

  2. Remarkably anglo-centric of them to do so too.
