The Politically Incorrect Show - 30/09/1999
Music - Die Fledermaus
Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Thursday September 30, 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!
There's only one thing more unedifying than the socialist savages from Labour & the Alliance bribing students for their vote; it's the spectacle of the students lapping up the bribery but complaining it's still not enough. The sight of all those incoherent bits of trash bleating for more OPM (Other People's Money) on the tv news last night reminded me yet again why I usually make a point of not watching the tv news. All the more heartening, then, to receive a non-cannibalistic e-mail from one student not beholden to the Nanny-State-worship of his peers, the title of which was, "Come and save us":
"I am a student at the socialist institution, Lincoln University. Recently we have been having leaders and education spokesmen from the "main" political parties talking on campus. A recent highlight was Richard Prebble. He started off by telling us how we don't live in a free society and how his party is the only one which advocates freedom and has freedom-based policies! I could have been forgiven for thinking he had defected to your party for for a while. Surprisingly, he didn't have sweeteners for the students. To his credit, he said that the only thing that ACT will do for the students is to provide them with a strong economy so there will be jobs when they graduate.
"Coming up we have Labour, Alliance, Winston First, etc., all expounding their usual lies and hypocrisy. No doubt they will promise us universal allowances, no-interest loans, free everything etc.. I am not sure if National consider us an important enough group (we only have about 2500 votes here) to talk to.
"Lincoln University, like most New Zealand Unis, is a stronghold for PC. For example, we have a Maori contingent (apparently important people) present at every graduation ceremony for the appreciation of the handful (if that) of Maori graduates we have each year. After 'their' students have graduated they all get up and leave (rudeness to the extreme). We have also set aside a small area of land for the local tribe to grow flax and native plants on. The only activity I have seen there over the last year or so is from rabbits. We have women's officers, environmental officers, welfare officers. We have voted for compulsory student union membership. The university was running so short of money that they got rid of some academics and technicians and appointed more bureaucrats to manage the reduced money. Does all this sound familiar?
"The problem is that most people can't see that there is a problem. Most of the students actually like compulsory membership. People here like being told what to do because they have never known anything else. What they need, I think, is bloody great stirring up.
"If you are ever coming in to Christchurch to give a talk or whatever could you please consider coming to Lincoln University, one of the strongholds of pc, and releasing some free-thinking attitudes to the repressed (and seemingly happy about it) masses."
To this young man I say, I can't make it to Lincoln just yet, & it's probably well beyond redemption anyway, but I will be in Christchurch on the night of Friday October 29 at the Brevet Club. Do come. And bring any others willing to take the risk of being enlightened!
