As we all know, there’s a great chance that the Campbell Live show might be cancelled. NZ’s hard left has got their nickers in a right twist over the potential sacking of their chief propagandist. Other’s aren’t that bothered and more than a few are pleased at the news. One of the latter category is the National Party MP for Clutha-Southland, Mr. Todd Barclay.
Mr Barclay posted a Facebook comment that said:
“No surprises that it’s only Labour Party MPs scrambling to keep Campbell Live running… #goodjobmikehosking.”
This has “left people seething” says the Herald report. Not leftists you will note, but “people”.
Todd Barclay apologised for his comment and removed it. He said “I stand corrected, Campbell Live does have a lot of supporters. I guess it’s down to personal preference etc.”
The Herald continues its affronted tone-
Despite his apology, many of Mr Barclay’s followers remained unimpressed by his earlier comment.
“That status was disgusting. John Campbell is 10 times the man than anyone in parliament right now. You should be shaking the hand of man doing such great work in this country not tearing him down. Bad bad form,” one person posted.
Another said: “Well done for apologising! Make sure next time to think about what you’re saying before you post it on Facebook.”
Others called the post “disgusting” and “rude”.
Note not one word to suggest that supporters of John Campbell are most likely to be hard leftist or communist. Once again we see neutral nouns like “person” and “others”.
As for the apology, normally, I might admonish the MP for cowardice and capitulation and a lack of plain guts. However the guy is only 24. (NZ’s youngest MP), and its highly likely he’s done as he’s been told by someone further up the chain of useless gutless surrender monkeys that pose as the National Party.
The Nat’s collective cowardice is not the issue though. We come to expect this kind of behaviour from that pack of Progressive losers.
What has really made my blood boil is the tone of the article written by the faceless no hoper from NZME. Since when has it been verboten to have an opinion that confronts the left in this country? Whoever wrote that disgraceful article should FO to North Korea where they’ll be right at home with the Nth Korean govt and their like disregard for freedom of expression. The writer is obviously not at home in a pluralistic Western democracy.
Unless its true we just don’t have one anymore.
