The fourth big news story that was missed in 2018 was finding out that a Chinese businessman attempted to buy two MPs on the National Party list.
At some point we are going to move on from JLR being an arsehole to women and you know, ask questions about the Chinese Government buying 2 MPs right? Like that’s coming up eh? Like that’s a direct threat to our fucking sovereignty eh, we aren’t this easily distracted right?
I’m sure you could find 20 men who have been bullied by JLR as well, the media’s desperation to catch a MeToo villain is missing the far bigger issue of a country attempting to distort our sovereignty- JLR is an arsehole and a bully, China however attempted to buy and influence our Government and this after they already have one spy inside National and are threatening our academic who is highlighting all of this.
If a former Officer in the US Army paid $100k for two Americans to become MPs there would be outrage, so how come the total media silence of a Chinese businessman who was a former leader in the Communist Party doing exactly that? How is JLR being a bully a bigger story?
Woke journalists see JLR bullying as a bigger story because of the interpersonal dynamics aligning with heteronormative patriarchy power imbalances and believe using anonymous sources to promote that narrative along with a woman who consensually had sex with JLR (but who now believes she was coerced into sex because of #patriarchy) is a far more important story than you know, China trying to infiltrate our democracy.
Russia hacks elections, China just buys them and our wilful exclusion of that element of this story in favour of anonymous sources making complaints is extraordinary.
