Skip to comments.Now it’s time for us to move to New Zealand. Ruth Bader Ginsberg wasn’t the only one thinking this.

The prospect of a Trump presidency led to some prominent Americans including Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg joking, or perhaps half-joking, that they would move to New Zealand.
Ginsburg gave a nod to this splendid isolation during an interview with the New York Times in July. Now its time for us to move to New Zealand, Ginsburg said her husband would be urging if Trump won the election.
Billy Crystal had the same idea. I might consider finding a nice little ranch in New Zealand, he told Australian media earlier this year. (By the way, Billy, we call it a farm. Yes, even the ones with animals only.)
But the idea has taken off this week. Web traffic from the United States to the New Zealand government websites that deal with immigration has skyrocketed.
A View from Down Under: Anti-Semitism rising in NZ
The Jewish cemetery in Auckland had been vandalized with swastikas and anti-Semitic graffiti, and even the old cemetery in Wellington had its tombstones kicked over and desecrated. At the same time, an Australian report recently released indicated a threefold increase in anti-Semitic physical assaults reported in Australia over the past year. Clearly, anti-Semitism is on the rise, and despite its rejection by what I believe as most decent members of society, even that has not stemmed its flow.
Why now? And why here in countries that are generally among the most tolerant in the world? Much of it can be attributed to the medias reporting. Any reporting of Israel and its recent Gaza war, is absolutely and even universally biased against Israel. In the eyes of the general population, whose opinions are forged by the media, Israel remains a bully suppressing a defenseless and innocent population in the worlds largest open air prison. The fact that this is a lie is irrelevant and most peoples attention spans dont last long enough to verify or find out the truth themselves.
But the reasons that Jews are targeted is because despite what any individual Jews personal political views and opinion towards Israel Israel remains the national state and symbol of the Jewish people. If a member of society wants to lash out against Israel the easiest target is the Jew walking down the street, or the kosher bakery selling challah for Shabbat, or the shop selling Israeli pickles.

Go already. Just go.
Excellent. I hope he wins the argument.
It's beneath the dignity of the court for her to be speaking about politics, much less in such an acidic way.
She should be ashamed of herself. Good riddance.
I love how all the never-Trumpers, Social Justice Warriors, leftist democrats, always threaten to move to all-white Christian 1st world countries...
Didnt the wise Latino, or was it the other lezbo say she would resign if Trump were elected president?
Well, I for one CERTAINLY do wish the dessicated Ginsberg would give up the robe for parts outside this country.
The soon it is rid of this hagged out dirtbag, the better. We can get a Trump nominee to replace her shriveled a$$.
Looks like Obama and Kerry spotted low-hanging anti-semitic fruit of the “kiwi” variety and plucked it.
Billy Crystal had the same idea.
Can he take Bill Kristol with him?
And the rest of the National RINOview staff?
New Zealand: Muslim screaming Allahu akbar threatens to slit mans throat
MAY 6, 2016 11:20 AM BY ROBERT SPENCER
It can now be revealed that just over a year ago Patel was jailed for 10 months for holding a large knife to a drivers throat and threatening to kill him while yelling an Islamic exclamation. Patel gestured to the driver then ran across the road and held a knife measuring 20cm to the drivers throat yelling, Allahu Akbar, and, Im going to kill you motherf***er.’
So apparently he served his ten months and then was freed to resume life as a loyal, upstanding citizen of New Zealand. And then he was found, doubtless to the shock and horror of New Zealand authorities, to be distributing Islamic State material. There are a number of lessons in here for those who wish to prevent jihad terror attacks in the West, but authorities are interested in hearing none of them.
Imran Patel, Second man guilty of distributing Isis material, by Rob Kidd, NZ Herald, May 6, 2016:
An Auckland man has pleaded guilty to possessing, making and distributing extremist Islamic videos which featured footage of people being beheaded and burned alive.
Imran Patel, 26, admitted the charges at Auckland District Court this afternoon, just hours after 27-year-old Niroshan Nawarajan became the first person in the country to admit such offending.
Patels situation is more serious because he distributed the videos, whereas Nawarajan was only charged with possession.
What makes these loony liberals think New Zealand or Canada or anywhere else would take them?
Other then the US, you just can’t waltz into a country and expect to live there for as long as you want.
So when you don’t like what happens in NZ you’ll go to another country? And keep bouncing from one to the other.
Ruthie once said that the South African constitution was better than our own. Why in hell doesnt she go there if she thinks its so much better.
New Zealand: it’s the new Canada.
These people are stupid. I was born in canada and it took my Irish GF 7 years just to get to the exit interview, longer than me getting my previous green card. YEARS. MANY. Heck, she had to go back to Ireland just to get her police clearance report and she did the same for the US.
Plus there’s a STRICTER point system in place for 2017 just even to be considered for canadian residency. Do you speak French? There ya go...Most libtards don’t. I doubt libtards have a clean record biometrics-wise if they ever need to immigrate canada.
Exactly. They never go to the Peoples’ Democratic Republics.
Just leave already. Sheesh.
These “threaten-to-leavers” have to be the biggest hypocrites in the world. They want to go countries founded in an Anglo-Saxon tradition where Christianity is still dominate, immigration standards are strict and medical care is rationed. Why is there no demand for Mexico (a beautiful country with great people), Turkey, Eastern Europe or Southeast Asia?
These liberals know there is no one who would force them to keep their promise and actually leave. Yet these liberals remain paranoid and hypocritical. As a group the hire more white , heterosexual men with a police or military background as their personal armed bodyguards.
She changed her mind. She’s staying.
