I once had a small amount of time for Garth George. I was wrong. Over the years he’s revealed himself to be just another left wing suckhole in the long line of left wing suckholes that work for the NZ Herald. He’s surpassed all previous efforts with this week’s example of pathetic far left garbage.
He starts off by bracketing ACT with Hone Harawira’s Mana Party. Two sets of crazies at alternative extremes of the spectrum is Garth’s dopey thesis. He calls the Mana Party “graspers” and in the most nauseating supplication to endless extreme left propaganda campaigns, ACT are the “greedies”.
In the same propaganda driven vein, he labels Brash “too old” at 70, and then comes the killer-
Dr Brash is last century’s man, a fanatical economic ideologue still convinced that laissez-faire capitalism is the answer to all our woes – in spite of all the evidence of its abject failure under successive governments throughout the 1990s.
You hear that my fellow free market conservatives? NZ suffered “laissez-faire capitalism” throughout the 1990s…!! What’s more, it failed.
The Herald actually pays this blustering buffoon good money to insult our intellect with this kind of patronising fifth rate political garbage. Really, one could probably find a more accurate and factual thesis in a third former’s political science exercise. This is such cliched rubbish it even insults a publication with such a damaged reputation as the Herald. Brash may be 70, but Garth George is well into his second childhood and in intellectual terms, fast approaching thirteen for the second time.
We could be reading Ann Coulter or Mark Steyn. That is if the Herald was a real newspaper that employed real writers, and not those silly old uninformed bigots such as Garth George who would be far better suited to writing advertising copy on the side of Weetbix packets.
