The Politically Incorrect Show - 29/09/1999

Music - Die Fledermaus

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Wednesday September 29, proudly sponsored by Tuariki Tobacco 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!

I suppose we can be thankful that our two leading socialist parties, Labour & National, have learned something from the anti-NaZis on Air campaign - that voters, to their credit, will not wear being made to fund the two parties' Kremlin-type plans for a non-commercial National Socialist Radio Youth Network. But then, just how IS this network going to be funded? Politicians, being parasites, have no idea how the wealth that they live off is created; do they imagine the funds are miraculously, spontaneously going to generate themselves? Are they going to force existing commercial stations to fund a new competitor? The Labour socialists, the unspeakable, scumbag totalitarians that they are, are already proposing to force these stations to play a quota of New Zealand music, starting at 10% & rising. I received the following comment on this maggotry via e-mail last night:

"Hello Lindsay

"It seems appalling to think that after the elections we might well have Labour or National style music on the radio, courtesy of people who seem to think that their tastes deserve to be forced on the masses. Even worse, the Marian Hobbs school of thought would impose quotas of NZ music, logically opening the way for NZ music to be divided further into categories such as Maori, Wimmins, Gay etc. I mean why stop at simply insisting on a quota for NZ music when that music could quite possibly over-represent the untalented white male?

"I wonder how my singing hero Joseph Schmidt would have got on had he lived as a foreigner in NZ today? Under the Hobbsian quota, quite possibly similar to his wartime fate under Nazi Germany. After 1934 it soon became impossible for certain singers to appear in Germany. Goebbels had Schmidt banned from Berlin Radio. Space had to be reserved for talented Germanic peoples, not foreigners like the Romanian Jew, Schmidt, who was obviously usurping position and popularity that should have rightfully belonged to an Aryan . There was probably an initial quota for German artists - I guess it started small (maybe 10%) but ended up rather quickly at 100%.

"The trouble was that the National Socialist singers and artists were awful and Germany quickly lost its most talented performers.

"On eventually arriving illegally in Switzerland, Schmidt was not permitted to sing until his case was 'clarified' and after a short spell in a work camp died from heart failure after being dismissed from hospital as a simulator.

"I guess if Marion Hoebbels gets her way a modern day Schmidt would fare no better in NZ. For a start it may not have been possible for his CDs to be heard due to quotas of local musicians taking priority. If he arrived as an illegal immigrant wishing to perform and make his own way, this would probably be disallowed lest he take away kudos from a strangulated NZ tenor. Indeed he would probably be placed under the interim care of Winz or the Arts Council or Music NZ (my guess at the name of a likely new Quango) and any of those fates would inevitably result in heart failure!"

Well, folks, let's give Comrades Marion Hoebbels and Marie Hassler heart failure today! My question for you is, Should the Ministry of Culture be abolished? This is the new super-Ministry set up by the National Socialists to oversee all this crap. It should be disbanded forthwith, & its architects made to visit Auschwitz to remind themselves what happens when politicians start dictating matters of "cultural identity."
