Alex Fogerty ~versus~ Vote for Change

Update : This appears to be Big News over in Kiwi and revelations of Fogerty’s political lineage has apparently resulted in former Waitakere Mayor Bob Harvey withdrawing from the Vote for Change campaign: Bob Harvey resigns from anti-MMP group, Hayden Donnell, The New Zealand Herald, July 4, 2011.

Alex Fogerty is a Kiwi with a history of involvement in the racist far right. (Among other things, he was responsible for admin on the nutzi website ‘Australian New Nation’ (ANN)–the frontpage of which currently features propaganda vids by Carl D. Thompson (‘Australia Calling’) and Trevor Lewis (‘The Voice’).)

Vote for Change is a NEW! campaign that wants to reform the Kiwi electoral system (ahead of a referendum).

Until today, Alex was one of the faces of ‘Vote for Change’.

Sadly…

Vote for Change Press Release

Alex Fogerty

July 3 2011

Vote for Change is investigating allegations made about a member of its organisation. The allegations of Mr Fogerty’s previous membership of a white supremacist group appear to be true and he will be asked to resign his membership immediately, or have his membership revoked if he chooses not to resign.

Many political organisations some members have pasts [?] that are not entirely to their credit, or the credit of the organisation they belong to. In the 2008 election Labour lost high ranking list candidate Stephen Ching and National lost New Plymouth candidate Clem Coxhead, who was replaced by Jonathan Young ten weeks from the election. Both men left their roles with the respective parties because of issues with their past that their parties did not know about.

Vote for Change has found itself in a similar position as both Labour and National did in 2008. We would like to thank Martyn Bradbury for drawing this to our attention so that it could be rectified immediately.

Vote for Change will not be commenting on this unfortunate matter further.

Martyn Bradbury covers the story on the TUMEKE! blog here.

    I believe the Jews want to be perfect, this would explain why they got rid of Hitler, he was competition to them, just like Saddam.

    Not only do they want to rule the world, but they want to make themselves better physically, as well as mentally as was the case 2000-odd years ago when the Arabs welcomed them as intellectuals to run their cities for them.

    Now I fear that with breeding programs so close to being like what the National Socialists tried to do, but in secret, they may have a physical and mental advantage over us.

    I have been seeing a lot of Israelis in our town over the summer, and most of them look to be Germanic in ancestral origin.

    I have wondered, what if they manage to take the next step in evolution, say psychic powers, we would be helpless, imagine people able to see the future like Delphi, and have the strength of Apollo, if not telekinetic powers, some would believe this is a very big possibility with the realisation that the brain has huge potential.

    The thing the Vote for Change people all have in common is they want to take my (effective, actually-elects-people) vote away. That’s about as bad as it gets in my books.

    No thanks.

    I’m keeping MMP. It may not be perfect, but it’s far better than any of the other options.

    I thought Alex had run off and joined the Nationals?
