In a desperate attempt to stem the growing nationwide influence of Voices For Freedom (VFF), legacy mainstream media have focused on the word ‘ungovernable’.
But what did VFF mean by ‘ungovernable’?
The first thing to note is that since its founding in December 2020 VFF have produced a staggering output of material – thousands of hours of video, many millions of words in social media posts, blog articles, educational materials, hundreds of interviews and a great deal more.
VFF have in fact only referred to it [ie. ‘ungovernable’] a couple of times.
The media, after trawling through hours of footage, landed on this single word and have shamelessly taken it out of context to fabricate the story they want to tell about VFF.
Speaking with Rodney Hide of The Platform recently, VFF co-founder Alia Bland explained what use of the term ‘ungovernable’ meant.
But first she described how misfiring hitpieces like the much-maligned Stuff documentary ‘Fire & Fury’ were actually having a positive effect on VFF:
‘They don’t quite realise it’s going to backfire somewhat. They’re right to be worried about us because we’re growing, and we’ve had incredible growth, and even from all of this attention, we are growing even more. So they want to expose us, but all they’re doing is pushing people towards us,’ she told Hide.
‘What we’re seeing is more people are waking up.
‘We, Voices For Freedom, are doing the job the government should be doing but is failing.’
Talking then about the concept of ‘ungovernable’, Bland said:
‘This concept of becoming ‘ungovernable’, and they’re bandying it around like it’s some sort of awful thing, but I think what would be important is to give some context to that.
‘So, when we’re thinking about that term ‘ungovernable’, ‘becoming ungovernable’, it’s basically looking at how dependent we’ve all become, and seeking to change that. So it’s about looking at the overreach of the government, and working on ways that we can become more resilient, so that we are not vulnerable to the next mandate, or government law which seeks to remove our freedoms in one way or another.
‘We’re doing everything we can to ensure people are connected and networked, and that they are striving towards resilience in all manner of ways, so that there’s never the power of the government to do this again.’
