The Politically Incorrect Show - 23/11/1999

[Music - Die Fledermaus]

Good afternoon, Kaya Oraaa & welcome to the Politically Incorrect Show on the free speech network, Radio Pacific, for Tuesday November 23, 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!]

Yesterday, an anonymous fan letter (this kind of fan letter is ALWAYS anonymous!):

"Dear Mr Perigo

"You talk of freedom, yet you yourself are a servant, a sort of court clown, whose wits are used to flatter the rich."

Crikey! That's news to me, & I'm sure it's news to the rich people I flatter. Actually, I've known only two really rich men in my time: Bob Jones & Alan Gibbs. Gibbs ridiculed what he called my "obsession" with freedom & tried to tone me down at his silly wife's behest. Jones & I finally parted company when he advocated state registration of journalists. At the time I said, "I have forgiven Sir Robert Jones-Jones in the past for some appalling breaches of principle, such as accepting a knighthood or proposing a State Art Bank in his New Zealand Party manifesto, but this is the last straw. To advocate the compulsory registration of the Fourth Estate is about as low as you can sink. This entity is bereft of any libertarian integrity." In Deborah's biography of me I observe that if there were a God, he would arrange for Gibbs & Jones to get stuck in a lift together, which would save Him having to send them to Hell.

If that's "flattery" I'm intrigued to imagine what "abuse" would be like. But I digress:

"Don't try to pull the wool over our eyes! Rodney Hide & you are fighting exclusively for the rich. Fighting the tax department is the prime example. I hope you are getting lots of lovely crumbs for that fight [so do I, dear so do I, but no joy thus far!]. It is very easy to see who would benefit the most from a weak tax department. You, Mr Perigo, are only the court clown in the castle who says to his masters, 'Sir, it is only moral & right thay you go & rape & pillage & make people's lives a misery. You are great & noble & those ordinary folk are really just scum & retards, not worth a bean.' I would be grateful if some of these rich people would do a Fay/Richwhite & just clear off out of this country. They are impinging on my freedom & I resent it. I want freedom & happiness for all, unattainable through your moral philosophy."

Translation: "Anyone who provides a good or a service that people want & makes a lot of money from it is a rapist & pillager who makes everyone miserable. He impinges on my freedom not to be made miserable by my own envy. He challenges my desire to remain 'ordinary' (preferably with someone else's money), my desire not to bother rising to whatever heights I might be capable of if I stopped bludging, got off my subsidised chuff & had a go at something productive. That hurts my feelings, & I should be free not to have my feelings hurt. How can I be happy if someone EXTRAordinary is hurting my feelings all the time? The guvamint should put a stop to it."

Well, dear fan, the guvamint does put a significant stop to it already. Come this Saturday, the guvamint YOU will be voting for will put a complete stop to it. You & your fellow-losers will have at least three years to drag the country down to your level & below, destroying what's left of our personal freedom as you do so.

You're certainly right about one thing. I DO think you're scum.
