I agree with every word(except for the unjustified criticism of ACT, that is).
*SOLO-NZ Press Release: Most Sickening Waitangi Day Ever;
February 7, 2008 Yesterday’s Waitangi Day celebrations, acclaimed by the media as the most peaceful in a long while, were actually the most sickening ever, says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo.
“They plainly confirmed the voluntary servitude of the media to Mordi separatists and the dearth of decency among mainstream politicians. In fact, the only one who came through with her dignity intact was Helen Clark.
“First was the revolting spectacle of John Key, now double-jointed from all his recent flip-flopping, brown-nosing one of the specimens implicated in the proposal to assassinate him. Craven cowardice doesn’t come any more craven and cowardly than this.
“Then came the brown-nosing of the same wannabe terrorist and his family and other co-conspirators by TVNZ’s *Close Up* programme, which had paid some of the expenses of these creatures. *Close-Up* was simply wall-to-wall Harawira/Iti, including nauseating genuflection by reporter Janes and presenter Sainsbury, with not even a token attempt at balance or devil’s advocacy,” says Perigo, himself a former TVNZ presenter.
“Where was the voice pointing out that the terror raids were 100% justified, as shown by evidence published in defiance of the Solicitor-General?
“Where was the voice saying that the only ‘sovereignty’ that matters is * individual* sovereignty, for which western values allow and which Mordi tribalism quashes?
“Where was the voice telling Maori that blaming whites for their disproportionate criminality no longer cuts it, that the ethic of self-responsibility is as applicable to Maori selves as to Pakeha selves?
“That voice was nowhere to be heard because the media have shut it down and the politicians who should be part of it have betrayed it. That includes National and Act.
“Things have come to a pretty pass when the Fourth Estate and opposition parties not only do not probe and expose evil, but also lick its every last orifice.
“February 6, 2008, was truly a day of shame and a day for vomit,” Perigo concludes.
