The sanctimonious wailing by mainstream media over Tamihere’s taken out of context comment would be hilarious if it wasn’t eclipsing the NZDF covering up an actual war crime – the woke shallowness of our media is extraordinary.
Just before the last set of questions, I asked the following questions…
…Phil justified his censorship, John argued the Mayor shouldn’t have that power. Phil carried over his defence of censorship in his last question (the question the media are showing you) and in response, Tamihere quipped “Sieg Heil to that!” which was in reference to Phil’s previous defence of censorship.
The way the media are attempting to frame it was Tamihere just announced he was actually a Nazi and was invoking hate against mixed race grandchildren.
If Tamihere is secretly a white supremacist Nazi, he’s done a bloody good job of disguising it as a Māori. Chris Trotter has written the best review of this entire fiasco here.
Meanwhile the NZDF continues to cover up an actual war crime, if only the NZ mainstream media and the perpetually outraged woke on Twitter could focus on that as much as they have on this.
