Another bizarre post

February 5th, 2010 at 1:15 pm by David Farrar

Trevor’s post at are just getting more bizarre. And I say this as someone who said many times last year Trevor was an excellent blogger. Something has happened over summer.

Trevor’s latest missive is to call John Key racist for criticising Hone Harawira!

So why has been so aggressive in his criticism of Hone?

Hone is a sometimes an easy target. He puts his head up and I’ve certainly had a go at him when it is appropriate.

But contrast this question of a perceived (but not actual) conflict of interest of a member of Hone’s family with the decade of the English whanau ripping the taxpayer off by pretending to live in Dipton. And Wiremu was found to have an interest. And it is continuing.

So is Key kicking Hone because he is Maori and if not what is his explanation for his hypocrisy?

First of all Trevor is lying about Bill. No less than the Auditor-General, Jonathan Hunt, Margaret Wilson and Lockwood Smith have all ruled Bill has been eligible for the Wellington accommodation supplement.

But even putting that falsehood aside (and teh stupidity of trying to compare an issue about a flag with housing allownaces), it is pitiful to suggest that John Key is racist because he criticised Hone Harawira.

Calling the Prime Minister a racist is not an accusation an MP should make lightly. I wonder if Phil Goff would agree with Trevor that Key is a racist for criticising Hone? Maybe someone could ask Phil in front of Hone as he welcomes him onto Waitangi.

    Shit, John Key and I have something in common. We both criticised Hone Harawira. Like 95% of the country.

    And who the heck is this Wiremu Pakeha that John Key is supposedly backing? Trev is a plonker of the highest order.

    Well, he’s only an infant in the blogging world ain’t he??

    And what you see is what you get. Warts and all.

    Would it be any different if any other/ all politicians were blogging? Be good if they were, then as we now know what Trevor is, so would we know what they were.

    it’s indicative of how Labour have sold out on race relations. since the departure of Clark their approach has run the whole gamut from petty vindictiveness to outright bigotry.

    even though they they like to pretend the tino rangatiratanga flag is just empty symbolism they can’t help but be obsessed with it. if they can’t have any postive contribution they should just leave it alone, lots of people have no problem with it.

    ‘Not so clever Trevor’ merely is representative of the paucity of intellect on the Labour Front Bench. When Helen left, the overall IQ average dropped into double figures. and of that ’11’ is repesented alone by Cunliffe.

    Something has happened over summer.

    They all went to different BBQs?

    I would have expected Labour to review what went wrong last year and come back focused on putting it right. But they seem more disjointed and misguided than ever. Too many steaks and not enough gas.

    The duck is nothing more than a scaremongoring bullshitter. The problem is that he has nothing constructive to moan about so he is becoming more bizzrare and being outed for the meatsack that he is. Clearly he is losing the leadership stakes.

    Where’s the “Countess” or Ms Curran to leap in and fearlessly defend the noble Mallard ?

    Since they haven’t turned up, I’ll explain for them. Any criticism by someone in National of anyone Maori is racism, OK ? But, any criticism of anyone Maori by anyone in labour (or further to the left like the Greens) cannot ever be called racism because they’re their “friends”, and we wouldn’t criticize if you unless you show “Uncle Tom” tendenecies by supporting someone other than us anyway, and that’s a wor=se sin than racism, so there too. And since it’s Trevor talking, nyah, nyah, nyah !

    And, by the way, even criticizing this criticism is racist anyway.

    Labour at its best, name calling and finger pointing. Trevor did refrain from describing Key as a “white motherfucker” rapist, which was nice of him I suppose. Not that that is a racist reference at all.

    I sometimes wonder if John Key is deliberately giving Hone and his ilk enough rope to hang themselves. If so, that isn’t racist, just good common sense.

    Mallard, the mad red duck squawks again.

    However, Duck Man isn’t alone on this. Looks as though Radio NZ’s Labour Radio is going to take a similar tack in Insight on Sunday morning (8.12 am) according to the promo bit on their web site. This is what the promo bit on its web site says:

    …Outrage over the racially charged email sent by the MP for Te Tai Tokerau, Hone Harawira, prompted a record number of complaints to the Race Relations Office.

    The comments included profanities and the remark that white people “have been raping our lands and ripping us off for centuries”.

    That view appears to have provoked an outpouring of shock and rage from Pakeha towards Maori.
    Does this suggest that New Zealand is a more racist country than many people would like to think?
    Is there a deep-seated vein of animosity towards Maori and other ethnic minorities?
    Richard Pamatatau investigates.

    Sounds like an interesting PC rant coming up.

    Labour Radio is just getting back into swing as its radio stars return from a long summer vacation. Like the sahibs coming back down from the hill stations to resume intellectual command.

    “That view appears to have provoked an outpouring of shock and rage from” – well, everyone that isn’t on the treaty gravy train which is approx. 99% of the country but I guess RadioPravda never let reality get in the way of a good bit nationhood self flagellation.
