I notice on the occasional times I read Kiwiblog that any comment that praises Key is met with an overwhelming number of upticks. I think this is a result of millenials coming on board at Kwiblog and responding to Key’s marketing campaign that is clearly aimed at that sector of the voting public. Aided by National party long termers.
To me, such uncritical subservience is sickening. Those who were highly critical of Helen Clark for her socialistic bent now salivate over her doppleganger Helen Key.
I think Key is, like Helen Clark, a committed member of the “political class”, and I hold all members of that class in utter contempt.
There are many people in NZ who still think there is a battle between left and right. There’s no such battle. The so called “right” capitulated decades ago and that capitulation has accelerated to weak surrender under various leaders of National, starting with Jim Bolger and passing through to John Key, the greatest surrender monkey of them all.
Impressed by stand for nothing compromisers like Mark Textor and David Cameron and of late Malcolm Turnbull, Key epitomises the weakness of that force that pretends to a right wing political perspective.
Today’s political debate is completely dominated by one faction. The political class is that sector of society that has, over the last five decades, been processed through universities dominated by politically corrupt Marxist academics. Students enter university as naive impressionable youth, and filled chock full of Critical Theory, graduate as badge carrying members of the currently ascendant “nomenklatura“.
Basically they emerge as white ants, either knowingly or unknowingly, (depending upon their level of political sophistication) working as disciples of their Marxist lecturers and on campus mentors, and have nothing to offer Western society but criticism. They’re ashamed of the countries and societies their fathers and grandfathers died fighting for. When they should be fiercely proud of what the West has brought to the world.
Key even disparages our current flag because it bears a Union Jack.
One of the markedly obvious attributes of the political class is a commitment to “multiculturalism”. It fits you see. Our native societies are underdeveloped and won’t be complete unless they are blended with other cultures. That these other cultures are frequently inferior is of no concern. Because the soldiers of Marxism are faithfully following their “critical theory” doctrine.
Another of these salient attributes is a commitment to the idea that Western society is destroying the globe, manifested most often by claims that man’s activities are affecting the climate. This is complete and utter hogwash, like most planks of Critical Theory, but it has served its purpose well in making most of our youth ashamed of Western capitalist society.
Here’s a video (recorded today) of John Key confirming his belief in climate change. Confirming thereby that he is a paid up badged and uniformed member of the “political class”.
He’s held this belief since November 2006 when he said
“I firmly believe in climate change and always have. Like most New Zealanders, I take the risks posed by climate change seriously. The scientific evidence indicates that the world is getting warmer and, if this does not change, the results could be catastrophic – for our society as well as for our environment.”
But wait. Here’s what he said just a few short months before that in May 2005–
“This is a complete and utter hoax, if I may say so. The impact of the Kyoto Protocol, even if one believes in global warming, and I am somewhat suspicious of it, is that we will see billions and billions of dollars poured into fixing something that we are not even sure is a problem”
Unless you’re one of the political class yourself, how could you ever support anyone who is able to change their position so casually? And subscribe to such a Marxist anti-Western idea that is so crippling to our economies?
The battle to day is as I said, no longer right against left, its a battle between the Political Class, and those who seek truth.
Which side are you on?
