Followers of activist and anti-vaxx inspired conspiracy theorist Chantelle Baker, daughter of former New Conservative Party Leader Leighton Baker, have accused her of being a freemason following anti-mandate occupation at Wellington's Parliament Grounds.
To address the alleged rumors, she took to Facebook threatening legal action “against certain individuals” for supposedly defaming her.
“Not normally one to talk about these things however I am now considering legal action against certain individuals about their defamatory claims. I am not associated with freemasonry and am definitely not a freemason. I have not been funded by Jacinda & Co or the government,” Ms Baker wrote.
She's a public figure with a mind full of false realities and mistruths about the pandemic, and criticism is usually acceptable to a point. Where it becomes hate speech is another story.
This wasn't anywhere near close to hate speech but was a way to increase her popularity as a plead for woeful attention.

A post shared to Facebook by a user revealed she disclosed her father is a freemason and that he was talking to the head of New Zealand Police. Herself also included in being part of freemasonry with her father.
“So if you don't believe me about Chantelle Baker being controlled opposition skip to 13 mins, as she discloses her father freemason Leighton Baker was talking to the head of Police, and then his phone rang, and he had a conversation about meeting with them in an undisclosed place. Meaning not at the Police station”.
“Chantelle discloses that [she] and her father had a meeting with them alone at this place. Think about it…. they rang him, she's nervous because someone knows she had this meeting. [She] discloses to cover herself. They must already have a relationship with the Police to confide in them”.
Allegedly, Mr and Ms Baker had a private meeting with authorities about telling protestors to move their cars off the roads and out of the way, as they had blocked access for emergency services for far too long.
Authorities accordingly meet in a separate location from Wellington's Police HQ. Though, they were not advised of Ms Baker arriving with Mr Baker.

The two have pages with large right-wing followers who are influenced by their actions. To date, both live stream and amass hundreds and thousands of viewers, influencing conceivable demonstrations that could initiate real-world scenarios by the very words they speak.
“Far out. Does the universe not want me to tell you guys? So yesterday my dad was chatting with I think senior officers on behalf of the Convoy. Was it on behalf of the Convoy? Or was it just on his own? It might have been on his own to go and talk to the [organisers] to see what they think about how the Police are feeling,” Ms Baker said.
“There was like a little bit of stuff that went on, and he [Mr Baker] was like right I am going to meet with these officers and chat and see what they want from the [organisers] and go have a talk with them. I said do you mind if I come along? Because I'm just curious to have a chat with them and see their perspective about what they did to everyone”.
Ms Baker added that she was not scared and was “relatively protected” by the protestors if she were to get arrested.

Supporting an insurrection in the making and a January 6 replica as part of a Canadian style Convoy protest regime imported to Aotearoa New Zealand, largely influenced by fake news show Counterspin; links and connections to Guo Wengui’s disinformation network, is not a peaceful protest look.
Followers of the two pages accordingly can be led to believe their favored right-wing dis/misinformation influencers are freemasons if it doesn't align with their own views, beliefs or opinions — that's the influence it comes with if social media is used in the wrong way.
