NZ political commentators are not nearly so varied in their media opinions as their Australian colleagues. A large part of that difference is I think, down to The Australian newspaper and private education. The left still control Australia, but the counter offensive is much stronger there than in NZ. (hence Bob Brown’s attacks on The Australian)
NZ media identify pretty constantly with the left, but I have noticed over the last few years, a gradual drift away from the Labour style of leftism, to the Green style of leftism.
I guess this is due to new journalists being completely soaked in green propaganda by the Green’s use of the education system to force their religious convictions on gullible and impressionable youth. Much like Hitler did with his brown shirted Hitler Jugend.
Well, I guess that’s one way to do it if your arguments cannot be seen as convincing to rational and worldly wise adults.
So we’re seeing a shift away from Labour style leftism to the equally as destructive leftism of the watermelons, and most of this shift is driven by the mainstream media, which is today determined to propagandise for the “green” left.
The media’s sympathy for nakedly Marxist left wing causes has brought it far enough into disrepute, and I wonder just what it now seeks to do to the craft of journalism by turning it into an even worse propaganda device for “green” Marxism.
Whereas the routine Marxist style left only relied on a kind of ideological untruth, the Green Marxists have to actually lie straight out. For example, the old left would say something conceptual like “Nirvana awaits all who embrace Marxism”.
Whereas the new “green” left says capitalism is destroying the world and the truth of this statement can be demonstrated by means of the fact that Tuvalu is being submerged by rising sea levels.
Tuvalu is not being submerged by rising sea levels. This is a lie. However the media, and the pathetic little brainwashed noobs working within that discredited profession, stubbornly cling to this lie.
So we have a much more serious distortion of truth than we had before. Journalists who are brainwashed with Green propaganda straight out lie for their cause. They present distortions of fact and perversions of truth and they do it often and unashamedly.
In NZ there is virtually no dissent from the green Marxist political line in the mainstream media. So we have the trade of journalism being utterly abused to bring us not only Marxist driven ideological rubbish, but also to weave into that deceit, straight out lies to benefit the Green Party.
NZ is awash in green lies. These lies emanate from the mouths of politicians, but are just as widely propagated by a perverted media filled with Goebbels like propagandists rather than traditional journalists.
I think many people are awake to the fact that NZ’s media are a bunch of lying watermelons. This awareness can only grow as the lies become more widespread and more blatant. You would think real journalists would do something to preserve their craft wouldn’t you?
I guess they are just too few in numbers these days. Or maybe they too recognise that its just too late for journalism, and all they can do is mourn its death. Just another of our many public institutions destroyed by the left.
