New Zealand's Politicians—United in Fascism
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-06-26 12:49
SOLO Press Release.
From: Lindsay Perigo, Founder and Principal, Sense of Life Objectivists; libertarian broadcaster; former member, Parliamentary Press Gallery.
What do ACT's pretend-libertarian Rodney Hide, United Future's ideological slut-on-skateboards Peter Dunne, Labour's Thief-in-Chief Michael Cullen, the Greens' ban-everything-except-marijuana Nandor Tanczos and National's push-'em-down-the-stairs-if-they-disagree Gerry Brownlee have in common? They're all members of Parliament's Standing Orders Committee, the back-slapping we're-all-in-this-racket-together Beehive Mafia elite that protects all parliamentarians from being exposed as the parasitic, semi-literate, infantile, preening power-lusters that most of them are.
The godfathers have just announced the new rules to govern the extended telecasting of Parliament from next month: the use of material for "satire, ridicule or denigration" will be banned. Transgressors could be thrown in jail.
Press Gallery Chairman Vernon Small, a wimpish, whining pommie commie sympathetic to the Clark Government, has made whimpering noises in lieu of a kick-ass protest. The Press Gallery as a whole is comprised of leftie lickspittles whose only objection to the Clark Government is that it's not Stalinist enough. With these new rules, that objection no longer stands—and it's to the abiding disgrace of the other parties that their MPs on the Standing Orders Committee have acquiesced to this outrage. Among the media, only TV3 has risen above its usual socialist predilections and fearlessly ridiculed politicians in response to the Standing Orders Committee's fatwa.
Politicans with a conscience, journalists with integrity, and members of the public with an awareness of the sacred status of freedom of speech must rise up in unison against this cross-party commitment to fascism.
