The Politically Incorrect Show - 27/01/2000

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Thursday January 27, proudly sponsored by Neanderton Nicotine Ltd, the show that says bugger the politicians & bureaucrats & all the other bossyboot busybodies who try to run our lives with our money; that stands tall for free enterprise, achievement, profit, & excellence, against the state-worshippers in our midst; that stands above all for the most sacred thing in the universe, the liberty of the human individual.

[Music up, music down!]

"Who the hell does she think she is? How many people has she ever employed? How many tax forms does she fill in? Always someone else has to pay. This is scary. Her attitude stinks."

That was the content of one fax I received yesterday after the Minister of Women's Affairs came on the programme to confirm that indeed a new government agency will be set up to monitor employers & to whom employers will be required to report, regarding how many women, disabled & Maori people they are employing. "Scary" & "stinks" cover it quite well. What's even more scary is that the sheeple will unquestioningly accept this blatant Big Brotherism & probably baaaa even more loudly in support.

It wasn't people's thoughts she wanted to change, said Comrade Harre, it was their actions. You can't legislate attitudes, she acknowledged, but you can legislate for the actions that flow from those thoughts. If someone employed a hundred people & they were all men, she said, under the proposed legislation that someone would have to explain to the new bureaucracy why he wasn't employing any women. The bureaucrats, in other words, would infer that he harboured evil thoughts about not hiring women, would let him know that acting accordingly was not acceptable & would require him to mend his ways.

Folks, how can you stand for this? Even if this misogynist were for real, it would still be his right to hire on the basis of his misogyny. I don't believe that would be a rational basis on which to employ, & it would probably work against him in the marketplace, but it would be his right. I equally think that women employers who hate men should be at perfect liberty not to hire them. Again, I wouldn't approve, but it's not my business.

Let's face it, though, most employers are sensible enough to seek the best person for the job. This proposed new bureaucracy would be an unconscionable intrusion into their affairs. One employer rang me yesterday to say he was so incensed at the thought of it that he would fire any female, Maori or disabled employees as a gesture of protest. He will have a problem of course - thanks to legislation introduced by the previous National Socialist regime, it's virtually impossible to fire anyone for any reason, let alone for race, gender or disability. Nanny State gets you at every turn.

Laila Harre's defence of the indefensible was that "the people" voted for it. Well, yes, the sheeple did. Every half-wit loser out there listening to me right now who did vote for this new dictatorship should hang his empty head in shame for doing so. Of one point I often reiterate this is an eloquent demonstration: what a menace to freedom democracy is!

Here's another reaction I got yesterday, this one by e-mail:

"If possible could you please place a transcript of today's interview with Laila Harre either on the Libertarianz internet site, or in the next issue of the Free Radical. The above interview was one of the most appalling I have heard, and so that this current crop of particularly loathsome pollies can be seen to be hanging themselves on their own words and deeds, you could do no better than get Herr Harre's words out there. Unbelievable."

Well, Sir, I may do that, but I don't expect it will be as salutary as you expect. Unbelievable, you say? The sheeple don't give a damn.
