Garner tells Harre to harden up

August 6th, 2014 at 2:00 pm by David Farrar

writes:

Laila Harré – harden up.

And welcome back to politics. It hasn’t changed.

So, the Prime Minister said you’re backed by a sugar daddy – Kim Dotcom. So what? Many people will actually agree with him. It’s not really wrong. Is it?

To take offence is to be far too thin-skinned. Harden up, shake it off, but – best of all – just ignore it.

The truth is the Mana-Internet Party is backed by a German billionaire on the run from the authorities. It is what it is: he’s paying you and he’s paying for the party to exist. If he goes, the party goes.

Harre is playing the sexism card. Yawn.

Incidentially Your Dictionary says a definition of sugar daddy is:

A wealthy male benefactor to a charity or other cause

Sounds a very apt definition. Mirriam Webster also define it as:

a generous benefactor of a cause or undertaking

Laila is getting paid a full-time generous salary to campaign on behalf of Kim Dotcom. She shouldn’t complain when people point this out.

    Harre’s response is typical of a thin-skinned Marxist. Harden up Laila Krim DotCom is paying your wages so you are beholden to him.

    Hmmm, hard to avoid confusion with this response:

    No it doesn’t YesWeDid, you implied it does. Gay implies happy, but it isnt accepted as such these days. Harre metaphorically got in to bed with the criminal german for filthy $$, she can lie in that bed. Her far left morals and those of the shrieking skull have been exposed for what they are – for sale.

    But of course the right are the for money sell outs. Yeah, nah.

    I actually quite like the ‘Urban Dictionary’ definition of Sugar Daddy:

    ‘A lonely, desperate, usually but not always, ugly, overweight man, who has nothing else going for him except money’

    Sound like anyone we know?

    ‘Sugar daddy’ also implies sexual favours so yeah it’s offensive.

    Having a dyed-in-the-wool leftie politician from way back coming out of retirement, fronting a political party that is CLEARLY a vehicle for a wanted international fat-cat fugitive to influence our laws to keep him out of American jail, pretending that she’s still a voice for the left and the yoof, is so flagrantly dishonest, she must think we are completely fucking stupid? Well, I’M OFFENDED.

    Liar Harre is a charlatan and a whore.

    Paid a salary by a fat cat capitalist to pretend to represent leftie interests.

    She should be ashamed at herself.

    Her own conduct is what’s truly “offensive” here.

    ‘No it doesn’t YesWeDid, you implied it does.’

    From DPF’s reference (Your Dictionary):

    ‘A wealthy, usually older man who gives money or gifts to a younger person in return for sexual favors or companionship.’

    Some people are happy being offended. As RRM so succinctly notes, we should all be offended by Harre’s lack of moral fibre.

    What!!! You can’t imply she’s a whore, that (according to YesWeDid) would imply she’s having sex for money.
    Unless you consider one of the alternate meanings:

    Whore
    noun
    A prostitute.
    Often Offensive A person considered sexually promiscuous.
    A person considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.

    All good then, carry on.

    Why Laila Harre is bothering to stand now that the nice Mr Cunliffe has ruled her out of being a part of his Government quite escapes me. I mean we have to take Cunliffe at his word …. don’t we!!!!!!!

    Mind you it wasn’t so long ago that a certain Labour leader had the Greens as last cab off the rank and now they’re the hands on the steering wheel.

    I think this just indicates the fantasy-world that Harre inhabits – the one in which she plays a starring role, believes she represents relevance and is morally unimpeachable. When she plays the sexism card in order to keep the moneytrain running, she really can’t see the hypocracy of her sticking out her hand for KDC (alleged) illegally-gotten finances.

    I mean has she ever asked herself how much access to streamed sexist adult content has KDC facilitated in his drive to make money? And how much of others’ intellectual property has been jacked and how much of the profit from that now sits in her bank-account?

    Even while Harre was complaining that the Green Party has ‘stolen her intellectual property, she is content to take KDC’s cash from an organised venture which arguably allows access to the misappropriation of others’ intellectual property.

    I mean, really, you couldn’t make it up.

    Taking offense is part of politics too. All that matters is whether she gets more or less votes from it.

    Politicians are all whores (in the compromise for personal gain sense). If they were not then they would have no chance of actually becoming politicians.

    The only way they can be “honest” is if they are so dishonest they delude themselves into believing exactly what it takes to get elected in their little niche.
