Maori beats up elderly man live on Close Up
Hone gave Don Brash a whipping on Close Up last night. Definitely worth watching! The right have underplayed the impact Mana could have on this election, that is a pretense they can no longer have the luxury pretending any longer.
ACT's spin Dr's needs to prime their man much better than this, Don was flat footed - claiming Maori are not special in NZ was jaw dropping.
Brash is racist because he wants to ignore the past by pretending we are all equal now. Don's claim of 'one vote for all' is a joke in the words of Thomas Jefferson, 'There is nothing more unequal than equal treatment of unequal people'
Quote of the night has to go to Don Brash with his answer of "No" when asked if Maori were special in NZ. Taking Brash's view, Maori aren't special in NZ the way Native American Indians aren't special in America or Aboriginals in Australia. When Hone compares Brash to Hitler, he is highlighting the same level of ruthless dehumanization by the extreme right on those on the bottom of society. The lazy misinterpretation of Hone's comments is a reflection on the low level of intellectual capability within organized media.
