BASH THE DIRTY FILTHY BENNIE!


She’s at it again, the little solo mum Westie Battler who loves to lie about where she got advice to release private information about beneficiaries to the media, Paula Bennett has warmed the hearts of talkhate radio rednecks with hot tales of dirty filthy bennies.

The privatization of Social Welfare is under way and as Gordon Campbell at scoop points out…

Campbell on the govt’s plans for welfare reform
Overseas, the language of ‘allowing community agencies to become more involved in the delivery of welfare’ has been a synonym for the wholesale privatization of welfare services. At a time when accountability for public monies is English’s catch-cry in every other realm of government spending, why is more flexibility – and less accountability for anything but ‘ results’ – being seen as appropriate when it comes to welfare ? Giving the experts more room to do what they do best is certainly not what the government is doing in education, over national standards.

With an unemployment rate that will skyrocket on the back of the W recession once the stimulus cash drys up and stops propping up the credit addicted global economy, moves to privatize social welfare has to be wrapped up in a camouflage that doesn’t look as threatening and totalitarian as it intends to be – cue the Maori Party. As the Standard points out Whanau Ora: privatisation by stealth.

The beauty for National in having the relationship with the Maori Party is that it gives the pretense that National are moderate, likewise the beauty of having the Maori Party front foot this privatization of social welfare is that it doesn’t look like the radical free market economic policy as social policy that it actually is.

A great way to attack the dirty bennie and stir up NZers negative egalitarianism to rubber stamp vicious right wing social policy is put out bullshit figures on supposed welfare abuse …

$1000-plus welfare grants for other people's children
Thirteen of the 20 highest-paid beneficiaries and almost one-third of those who get more than $1000 a week from the state are looking after the children of other people. The highest paid is a single person on the East Coast, who gets $1720 a week, mostly in orphans and unsupported children's benefits to care for nine children. The second is a married Northland person, getting $1700 a week to care for 10 children, most from other parents. A table listing details of the 323 beneficiaries being paid more than $1000, provided by Social Development Minister Paula Bennett, shows on average they have five children.

Isn’t it great that the mainstream media do such a great job of unquestioningly publishing whatever press release the National Party release unedited as news? Why didn’t the Herald challenge Bennett on her numbers? Two Grandfathers raising 8 and 10 kids between them getting $1574 and $1702 per week – that’s $20 after tax per day per kid, that’s hardly living on the pigs back is it?

But the mainstream media DIDN’T point this out and the bennie bash to soften NZers up for the privatization of social welfare continues with the aid of the very media who should be holding the powerful to account.

Human creations are easily destroyed and science and technology which have built them up can also be used for their annihilation.One thus gets an impression that civilisation is something which was imposed on a resisting work shy army of surplus labour which keeps wages low or structural long term unemployment majority by an ethnic minority the maori which understood with the use of the treaty how to obtain posession of the means to power and coercion and many people have asked themselves whether a lifetime of little usefulness or what little civilisation has thus acquired is really worth defending at all as they bash the filthy dirty bennies.

Probably a certain percentage of mankind is destined to a fate of being anti-social or a-social.Owing to a social sickness of capital.If it were feasible to make these recalcitrants reduce from the majority to the minority they so despise and that is hostile to white civilisation as foreigners a great deal would be accomplished.

There is however a class of neurotics who already react to their frustrations for a life of some verifiable purpose withheld from them by their oppressors desire to stand in constant opposition to the removal of third world chinese walls.It is entirely understandable that the oppressors should develop an intense cut the bennies off the dole hostility towards a culture whom they make possible through their labour but in whose leisure pursuits they cannot partake except when they get shitfaced on a friday night.Such a regime drives them to revolt over leaving such a large number of 'participants' in talk-hate radio unsatisfied.

When the Maori Party wakes up, they might realise that the Nat's hatred of the poor, or rather their assumption that the poor should be used for their betterment, will be the reason for their downfall.
The Maori Party has already played a dangerous game (from the point of view of their own welfare). Now it's not a question of IF they falter, but WHEN.
Big shame!. Cudda shudda wudda! and SHAME Pita Sharples
