In Defence of John Tamihere

calling 3 News reporter Tova O'Brien a "stupid little girl";
describing Social Development minister Paula Bennett as "that
bloody fat girl".
Now, that is not the kind of language you would expect of a lawyer or of
a parliamentarian, but maybe it is appropriate for a talk-back host, which
is what he is at present. I faced a similar issue when I was applying
to be admitted as a lawyer, but was criticised for writing aggressive webpages,
such as one on the then Governor-General.
However, the point is that you shouldn't have to act like a lawyer or parliamentarian
unless you actually are a lawyer or parliamentarian! The
media are systematically anti-male and so pro-male people have to get
publicity any way they can, which includes behaving in bad taste.
select what to report in a fair manner, and
show balance in how they report it.
In fact, they don't do either of these, but do whatever they feel like.
The media demand transparency from Government, while providing none at all
themselves. When was the last time that there was a public audit of
the way incoming news feeds were whittled down by a media outlet into the
news that they actually allowed us to hear or see?
The media run the country, by only allowing
us to see and hear what they want us to pay attention to -- with the exception
that they are forced to cover certain things, such as election campaigns,
etc., in order not to lose all credibility with the public. Again and
again, the media hype up some criminal case or other, whip up a section of
the populace into a frenzy, and force politicians to make a rushed and ill-considered
change in the law.
TV3 is just a feminist propaganda factory. If I was to write a webpage
each time that Rachel Smalley churns out feminist propaganda on her morning
programme, I wouldn't have time to do anything alse! That
is pure corruption, totalitarian mind-control and dictatorship.
Adolf Hitler was a democrat, by comparison with today's media.
If Hitler took over New Zealand and put all the media into gas chambers, I
wouldn't know whether to mourn the fact that Hitler was still alive, or celebrate
the fact that he had gassed all the media!
As far as John Tamihere describing Social Development minister Paula Bennett
as "that bloody fat girl" is concerned, the same thing applies:
that is not the kind of language you would expect of a lawyer or of a parliamentarian,
but maybe it is appropriate for a talk-back host, which is what he is at present.
Paula Bennett is sexist and discriminatory, since she has welfare
benefits that apply to women only, and had the arrogance to say that most
New Zealanders would agree with that! New Zealanders sometimes agree
with anti-male discrimination, because Paula Bennett's own government includes
a Ministry of Women's Affairs, which is a continuous embodiment of the false
claim that women are disadvantaged, and need their own Ministry to help them
achieve so-called "equality". The Ministry of Women's Affairs
was foisted onto the country by the 1984 David Lange government, as a way
of buying off the Left of the Labour Party, so that he could implement his
right-wing economic policies. Paula Bennett's government is actively
conning New Zealanders about the
position of women-- and then she uses the fact that they have been conned
as a justification for oppressing men!
I would, however, commend her for apparently reducing the power of the
anti-male Women's Refuge in the Ministry of Social Development.
Although Paula Bennett seems to me, in most respects, to be a capable and
decent person, you would have to question what a severely overweight solo
mother (or ex-solo mother) is doing being a role-model for social development,
given that obesity and solo parenthood are arguably
the root causes of a lot of our health and social problems, respectively.
