Dick Hubbard

Dick Hubbard has been lampooned for his recent actions and speech against the "Boobs on Bikes" parade. He his mocked that his actions of speaking out against it attracted more people to it.

So what should he have done people? Should he have just ignored it? If he felt it was wrong and offensive - should he not be able to speak his mind? Since when is it better for us not to act on our conscience? Should we mock this man for doing what he thought was right?

What kind of man knows something is wrong and is afraid to say so? That man is no man. This lampooning is just an attempt to silence and embarass those holding to traditional morality. I say the mayor did right.


  • Agreed. If his rebuke brought more rebellious idiots out of the woodwork then that is actually a good thing, as it will increase the profile of a debate that New Zealand desperately needs. I got into a massive debate with a bunch of David Farrar's cohorts on Kiwiblog, resulting in not only the most commented post on his blog ever, with over 400 comments, but also another two posts that resulted in 290 and 160 comments!!

    Part of the Christian calling is to expose deeds of darkness (Ephesians somewhere) to power to Mr Hubbard I say...

  • Well...if you speak out against something, you should be aware of the fact that not all people will share your opinion. So he got ridiculed for speaking out against some people having fun (not everybody's kind of fun...but still fun). What's the big deal?

  • He was made to look a fool for speaking his opinion. It was implied that because he spoke out against it, more people came.

    This argument is used for two reasons:-

    1) To make him look like a fool.

    2) To silence those who wish to speak out against things like this.

    I say he is not a fool for speaking his mind on the issue. I also say that we ignore this line of attack and speak our mind also.
