MEDIA WATCH: Paul Henry’s ‘Rebuilding Paradise’ is our ‘Make America Great Again’ – how the Right win the post-pandemic narrative

Death Cult Capitalists: ‘Hey slaves, time to get back to work now, my privilege and wealth are at risk”

Slaves: “But Master, it’s the eye of the storm”

Death Cult Capitalists: “SHUT UP AND GET BACK TO WORK SCUM!”

No one connects to the self-interest of muddle Nu Zilind quite like Paul Henry.

He is one of the best broadcasters in NZ and his hurried return to the screens is a recognition of the cultural and economic shockwave from the elites as they survey the reality of their neoliberalism imploding in the wake of the pandemic.

New Zealanders are not calling out for Milton Friedman, Ayn Rand or the ungloved invisible hand of Adam Smith to get through this unprecedented event, they are begging for the State to save them and the Death Cult Capitalists know that it’s not ‘Socialism by Stealth’ if the entire country is screaming out for it.

Even the Taxpayer’s Union are now communists.

Taxpayers Union picking up their pork barrel welfare cheque from the Government

Paul Henry’s taunting of Twitter was probably the best part of the show, but his ability to charm and outrage in equal measure is a gift and he shouldn’t in any way be underestimated in his influence or reach.

His guests included an elderly rich Queenstown resident dripping in gold from his Golf course, industry pimps and academics who he agrees with. That he has managed to get a Finance company on board as a sponsor and the entire show off the ground so quickly is testament to how frightened the Death Cult Capitalists in NZ now are.

They want us slaves back to work because their boomer privileged wealth is at risk.

Hooton, Soper & Hosking’s naked sociopathy isn’t swaying the masses so the Death Cult Capitalists needed the veneer of academia to trick us sleepy hobbits into believing we should all be putting ourselves at risk to ensure they retain their tax bracket and gold card air mile perks.

The trouble is no one cares what the Plan B academics are trying to sell.

Of course we need to work out how we get the economy working again, only a fool would underplay the enormity of the economic tsunami rushing towards us, but using intellectually feeble ‘herd immunity’ nonsense as a license to allow a full blown pandemic to erupt is not a solution.

I’ve suggested that the NZ Left urgently put together a virtual conference to thrash out a basic policy agenda platform as a response to this unprecedented crisis of free market capitalism because the Alt Right Death Cult Capitalists are ramming their agenda through and will throw the working classes who suffer most from this virus under the bus faster than they can say untaxed capital gains.

Unfortunately the current Identity Politics Left in NZ are great at organising petitions on Action Station to free the nipple for PoC vegan cycling mommy bloggers and Trans Allies, but not so great at reconstructing the neoliberal hegemonic structures of the economy.

Paul Henry’s show plays 4 nights a week for a month. Expect him to get far louder and far more powerful, if the Left don’t get off their arses we will lose the narrative of the rebuild and the Right will reset the economy for their own interests once again.

  1. A very poor analysis. You are trying to hyjack this moment to install a socialist society that must be fought every step of the way. If you are over 40, have had a state sponsored university education, and you are not financially independant (call it a net worth of above 750,000) then you have failed. And your failure does not justify taxing the shit out of other people to compensate for your bad choices.

    Only a fool would increase taxation at this point. But that is what the left is. Fools who have failed.

    Henry was great, a good profile of Sir Michael.

      Ba ha !I constantly surprise myself with my short comings.
      There’s so much to say about how much of a greedy, ignorant, and clearly selfish fool you most surely are that I had a word-jam come up and block my mouth parts. But then? I remembered that I had these useful things called ‘fingers’ to use to ‘type’ on an amazing contraption called a ‘computer’.
      It’s a plain and simple fact, dumb ass, that socialism in it’s most inclusive form, built the post Maori AO/NZ you use logical fallacies to defend.
      My guess would be that by anilysing your brain fart you’d a been the first in to fatten yourself and your bank accounts on the labours of others who were genuinely trying to create a safe and secure future for their friends, neighbours and whanau. Dear old MJ Savage with a sharp, pointy stick would have his way with you I’m thinking.
      These days, we simply need to know who you are so, we can avoid you like the plague after we laugh in your face.

      • I highly commend you on your absolutely and irrevocably complete self control with this idiot, and in letting him/her down gently in the most polite as possible and gentlemanly way, CB.

        Sterling effort , old chap . Sterling.

        If it were me, of course , I would have simply called him / her a wanker and left it that. The fact that you deigned to condescend to this poorly informed and arrogant fool demonstrates clearly the very real sense of inclusiveness and democracy inherent in yourself yet woefully lacking with said individual in question.

        Bravo , old boy !

      • @ AWD. Keep your funny money sonny. We, the rightful inhertitors of this beautiful biosphere have better things to concern ourselves with. When your money’s worthless you know that you’ll be the one in the road son.
        Now, how about we change the tainted subject. Lets go !

    • AWB
      You are trying to hijack (note spelling) this thread by firsting your nonsense. I see people first, then the circumstances of their existence. Politics, and political economics (hat-tip Trotter); are emergent patterns of human interaction, not objects to be reified in themselves!

        • Yeah well he try to ‘first’ it.

          In other words he/she tried to set the tone. There would be many after the first shows viewing waiting in the wings to get the first word in and subvert an article or thread here.

          We are talking the media, – and there are many there ,- too many ,- that are only too keen to see their champion expound on sweet nothings to keep themselves in clover by supporting their neo liberal mates.

          I really do think its time to lay the Paul Henry’s and the Mike Hosking’s to rest as far as our media and political dialogue goes,… they are like trying to equate 1980’s politics to the politics of the 2020’s… grossly out of date.

          It would be akin to trying to resurrect the politics of 1914 for the politics of 2020 in NZ for all its worth. They really have nothing at all to give or add.

        • You can’t have much money if you worry so much about it. I’m sorry to hear that, what with no money on top of your other shortcomings.

          I can give you a bob or two if you get short.

    • AWB…..you might like this story (origins dodgy perhaps but no more so than your hubristic effort above). Michael Hill meeting Barry Crump when Crump was still favoured to attend the salons of Auckland’s bitch and famous: Hill bouncing up to Crump – “Hello, Michael Hill, Jeweller”. Crump – “Hello, Barry Crump, Pisshead” I don’t know, perhaps you were present. “Hello, AWB, Fatuous”.

  2. The narrative will be sensible and prudent governments with low debt can spend lots of money in emergencies, when it is needed.
    So the fiscal tap had better be locked down once normalcy returns, to get back to low debt.

  3. Yes Martyn;

    Labour never tried to construct there own TV7 promised media platform during their time, so they are sadly gone by lunch in September we fear.

    Jacinda was swayed by the right bussiness interests from the beginning of her reign loosing that “edge she had to make a “tranformative” change in NZ so gone are ‘Climate change plans’ and all other plans she had.

    • You have been told MANY times Cleangreen, your utopia is having the tax payers paying for a new channel that ‘cuts its way through’ right wing points and delivers Labours/left policy points! as I have said before, ‘what if the Govt changes?’ would you then decry said new channel as promoting right wing policies?

      Cant have it both ways mucker!

      Besides this new channel was in the pipeline before your lefty mate buggered it up with the meeting with Carol!, the left shot themselves in the foot again 🙂

      • Kind of a round about way to make a non point, don’t you think? And even if the ‘left shot themselves in the foot again’, at least it was quite democratic. You do believe in democracy , don’t you?

        Which is exactly what being a ‘democratic socialist’ is all about. Free elections and freedom to choose.

        Sooooo,… what exactly is your point in the first place?

        Of course, we are well aware of the neo fascist tendencies of the neo liberal. Surely you oppose that…?

  4. ‘He is one of the best broadcasters in NZ’

    As I was flipping through the channels I came across ‘the idiot’ (whom I cannot stand) and his presence was enough to keep flipping till I found something of interest.

    However, your point about a need for a sane narrative for the future to be generated is entirely valid, since the ‘death cult capitalists’ are desperate to render the Earth uninhabitable for humans as quickly as possible via a return to utterly dysfunctional pre-Covid-19 arrangements.

    I think it would be a safe bet that in Paul Henry’s show there will be no mention not a single sentence- about the unprecedented assault on the environment that business-as-usual is responsible for, nor the ultimate consequences of return to business-as-usual. After all, he is an ignorant twat with far too much to say and little brain power to generate the words.

    More pollution of the air, the land and the oceans; more loss of biodiversity; more unsustainable suburbia; more population overshoot, more squandering of resources and energy on trivial pursuits, and not one thought about sustainability or the effects all the looting and polluting are having on the next generation’s future.

    ‘The Fatal Road To 4 Degrees Celsius’

    ‘Global CO₂ rise and warming rates have reached a large factor to an order of magnitude higher than those of the past geological and mass extinction events, with major implications for the shift in climate zones and the nature and speed of current extreme weather events. Given the abrupt change in state of the atmosphere-ocean-cryosphere-land system, accelerating since the mid-20ᵗʰ century, the terms climate change and global warming no longer reflect the nature of the climate extremes consequent on this shift. Further to NASA’s reported mean land-ocean temperature rise to +1.18°C for March 2020, relative to the 1951-1980 baseline, large parts of the continents, including Siberia, central Asia, Canada, parts of west Africa, eastern South America and Australia are warming toward mean temperatures of +2°C and higher. The rate exceeds that of the Last Glacial Termination (LGT) (21–8 kyr), the Paleocene-Eocene hyperthermal event (PETM) (55.9 Ma) and the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary (K-T) (64.98 Ma) impact event.’

    • Damn! I missed Paul Henry’s big comeback. Must check the TV timetables so I can miss it again. Bit like avoiding a virus.Would a good headline be,’Paul Henry goes Viral’?

  5. Henry, Hosking, Plunkett, Willams, Soper etc etc etc – they all got their start, their basic training in radio/TV from our public broadcasting system (circa 1960 – 1990). Yes, from ‘sucking on the public tit’, as I’ve heard more than one of them, with derision dripping from their tongues, refer to anything funded by the taxpayer.
    But seldom, if ever, will they admit it, much less show any latent gratitude to the ‘taxpayer’.
    Hypocrites, all!

    • +1
      And unfortunately it’s now gone on so long that it’s hard for people to remember anything else. (And I don’t mean the bad old days of the NZBC with the absence of any alternative)
      But if we’re putting any faith in Chris Faafoi to deliver us from all evil, I suspect we’ll be waiting a long time. Nice bloke apparently that he is. His creds and experience also come in an age of commercial TV (albeit state owned – or “State TV” as Ralston used to call it a bit before he also started sucking on the state’s tit).
      I suspect/expect that we’ll get a bailout for commercial broadcasters, all in the name of plurality with a few peanuts thrown at public service broadcasting.
      I also suspect we’ll get a bit more tinkering and a piecemeal approach that simply serves to kick the can down the road a little longer.
      Never forget that lil ole NuZulln does actually have the means to give us some decent PSB Radio and TV that caters for minority and mainstream diversity, ‘plurality’ ( as is the term now in vogue ), and the trad trinity of educating, informing and entertaining. It can’t happen – political will, cost accounting, entrenched and unimaginative ideology, and the need to maintain an enterage of bureaucratic managerial ticket clippers are a some of the reasons why.

      My bet (as I keep harping on) is that things will have to get worse before they get better or until the natives get really restless

      • … on bail-outs for privately- owned TV and radio, there’s pecedent. One Steven Joyce arranged such a bail-out for about $45m when Minister for Something in the last Nat govt. As I recall he once owned a predecessor to Mediaworks and sale reaped him millions.
        Personally, I would that the govt spent a decent amount of money on public TV and radio instead of bolstering bleating, politicised private media.

  6. I get the impression COL just get a buzz word going like ‘shovel ready’ and leave the rest to business shareholders to implement the fine print. Bit like Kiwibuild. Doesn’t work out well.

    Lazy politics that seems to be exponentially reproducing in politicians around the world since 1984.

    Dirty politics has followed in the last decade due to the money that can be made by giant businesses having the coffers of the state and their regulations at their controls.

    As for want “us slaves back to work because their boomer privileged wealth is at risk”

    It might be a different boomer than you expect because increasingly large amounts (or all) of NZ corporations are not owned by Kiwis anymore…. It’s that diversity that the woke love but are probably under represented in now… increasingly the profits and policy of our business come from Beijing, Hong Kong, Canberra and just as likely, the closest tax haven.

    NZ government is to lazy to do much about that. In fact seem to be happy to give more state money to prop up overseas shareholders while telling NZ workers they will be expected to pay it back with their taxes and future pension cut backs later on. Free pensions still available here though for migrants who don’t have to pay anything at all in taxes or live here very long, to assess a NZ pension.

    A lot of NZ asset transfers has accelerated in the past few years…

    RNZ revealed that the four largest private landowners in New Zealand are all foreign-owned forestry companies, based on an analysis of Land Information data.
    https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/in-depth/401186/nz-s-top-50-private-landowners-revealed

    But land is not the only asset being transferred in NZ and the disregard for NZ workers seems to be a race to the bottom.

    NZ did not mind so much who owned their forests and businesses when there were well paid jobs and you could afford the produce being produced here, but now NZer’s don’t even get employed or they are employed then dumped repeatedly, now being poisoned with air and water pollution from overseas industries and can’t even afford their own raw materials being shipped back at triple the price.

    Look at how many products in NZ supermarkets that are not made in NZ, that we produce here.

    Many of the frozen berries in NZ supermarkets are produced now in China. NZ own horticulture is going under. Then there is the PSA coming in from China bankrupting NZ farmers while NZ government pays no compensation.

    Some of NZ’s biggest names are now mostly owned and controlled by foreign shareholders with our government approving the sales!

    Silver Fern Farms
    Wrightsons
    Tegal
    Oceania Dairy
    waste management
    Convita
    Fletchers
    Skycity
    Power companies
    Practically all the banks
    most of the water bottlers https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/78652406/the-bottledwater-giants-who-are-taking-our-water
    most of our insurance companies
    much of our tourism industry
    much of our hospitality industry
    Many of the big name retailers.

    For those corporations still NZ companies, the go to strategy seems to give NZ company management to overseas corporate CEO’s and executives at great salaries while cutting back costs and running the NZ company into the ground.

    Fonterra under Theo Spirings produced failed overseas strategies, milk scandals like Sanlu and a huge lack of innovation (in particular around environment and value added products and supply chain issues) leading to Fonterra now selling it’s well known brand like tip top overseas to bail them out.

    The question is when is the NZ government going to pull the plug when there is no longer NZ sovereignty, or are they too lazy to!

    While COL are terrible on this issue, we are still much better off than with the Natz in charge, who as well as overseeing much of the above, also appear to be keen to sell the list MP seats for foreign donations.

    But COL need to ask themselves, it is no wonder NZ businesses are going under and how sustainable is it, when NZ taxpayers are now paying for overseas wage subsidies for overseas workers for overseas businesses and the future Kiwis are expected to pay for the folly with more taxes to prop up those shareholders!

    • RNZ revealed that the four largest private landowners in New Zealand are all foreign-owned forestry companies, based on an analysis of Land Information data. NZs Top Landowners

      Incredibly sad, and shameful.
      As is this:

      Some [many] of NZ’s biggest names are now mostly owned and controlled by foreign shareholders with our government approving the sales! …See SaveNZ’s list above, or research it on the web.

  7. The very hard fact is that for the next several years, only those with a good income right now will be able to pay tax. Those with no income right now are unlikely to have enough to pay much tax. The conclusion is that the tax rate at higher levels has to go up to pay the debt. That’s not socialism, it’s just reality.

    • Yes but the money is being spent on companies that did not need the tax subsidies like Skycity and Harvey Norman. That’s the problem – the money was not spent on the poor the majority was spent on the rich. And the rich shareholders who do not live in NZ should not be zombie recipients of NZer’s who expect their taxes to be paying for health and education, not shareholders.

    • @Nic, the problem is that the government gave away freebies to the rich shareholders like Sky City and Harvey Norman for their wages, and the rest of NZ are expected to bail them out!

      If the government money was used wisely for the poor directly I would have less of an issue. It is tax theft to the rich again and again. No lessons learnt. And the businesses will shed their staff anyway!!!

      The government should have given the money directly for a UBI to NZ citizens and long term residents of NZ – aka we are bailing our own directly, not diluted by the bail out of overseas shareholders profits holed up in bunkers somewhere getting a huge share.

      • Right there SaveNZ again.

        Even a country like japan are giving $900 ffree bailouts to over 120million people but NZ Government are giving us nothing for Kiwi pensioners here, it stinks.

        Jacinda must hate us.

  8. You’re right on several fronts here, but isn’t it a bit more complicated than that Martyn?

    The globalists and multi-culturalists have finally been proven wrong: It’s now clear to even a fool that China has been slowly sucking the life out of the west like a vampire for 30 years now. It’s also clear that not all cultures are equal and stating that fact does not constitute racism.

    And who were those shills of multiculturalism and China? Clinton, Blair, Obama, Clark and all the EU mandarins. All progeny of the Left!

    But yes, the world is about to change:

    1. Western aligned nations will start to talk about strategic assets and products that must be made locally. The Japanese government is already taking action to claw back manufacturing from China. This will stick in the throat of the WTO and I think ultimately even GATT might be revised.

    2. The UNO and its daughter organizations are about to get a much needed haircut. For decades the leaders of minor states have been bribed by the Gulf oil states and China to do their bidding. The result has been a laundry list of BS denouncements of Israel, Robert Mugabe appointed as an ambassador to the WHO, Gaddafi chairing the human rights commission, a Saudi heading the women’s’ rights commission and UN soldiers raping women in Haiti.

    Who was the guy tough enough enough to call this? Yes, it was Trump. 😉

  9. The hard fact is that only those with income now will pay most of the tax in the next few years. Those at the bottom will have a poorer economic prospect. The debt will have to be paid so tax rates at higher income will have to go up. You may choose to call it socialism, many would call it reality. If you don’t like it, lift income levels at the bottom so more pay tax.

    • The well to do will just shut up business & leave for Australia etc. Jesus I would as the top 11% NOW…pay 50% of all income tax, while the bottom 35% contribute 3% of income tax!

      And this latest announcement by he RBNZ is no longer providing liquidity but instead providing solvency, which is morally bankrupt!
      WHEN Negative interest rates are eventually brought in at the end of this year (only held back by the banking IT issue of not being able to enter ‘negative numbers’ . It’s a tax on savers imposed by government central banks. Savers are the future; they are saving to buy homes, start businesses, put their kids through uni, etc. Central banks punish them and in so doing, trade long term prosperity for short term profit.

      Central banks are damaging the future with Quantitative Easing and negative interest rates.

  10. “Reserve Bank eyes removal of loan-to-value ratio mortgage restrictions in response to COVID-19 economic downturn for at least a year”

    Guess our RBNZ are in the camp of DCC!

  11. “The LVR policy is aimed at reducing the risks to financial stability from a severe correction in
    house prices. ” RBNZ 21/04/2020

    DCC!

  12. Various decent media people have been sent down the road during C19 fallout, and this reactionary clown gets rehired! It is likely not a random event, but he has been drafted in to spin for his paymasters.

    The “naughty but nice” shtick he uses to deflect from his divisive nastiness, is surely past its useby? This prick Mr Henry is a failed National candidate, NZ’s first trans MP, Labour’s Georgina Beyer beat him in 1999 for what was considered the safe Nat seat of Wairarapa. Ms Beyer had served as Mayor of Carterton prior also.

    We have bigger problems than smarmy old tories talking shit on TV, but, his every jibe, insult, slander and leer needs to be called until he scuttles off again back to his wine cellar.

    • Good lord!

      I’ll bet the wine shudders at his every approach !

      To be simply wasted upon such a ravenous gullet with no appreciation for the finer things of life is to have missed ones calling!

  13. The DCCs are more concerned about us getting back to spending and consumption than working. The working will take care of itself once the masses have to find money to pay for all the things they’re told they need.
    Imagine if after 5 weeks, people figured their own food was cheaper, tastier and fun to make rather than the junk from the fast food peddlers.
    The slew of specials, offers, interest-free, zero-deposit, buy 1 get 1 free, bonus airpoints, discounts, bargains and never-before-seen-low-prices that will saturate our media as soon as we get to Level 2 will be revolting. And, quite possibly, redolent of post the GFC the exhortation to spend to re-grow the economy as civic duty.
    Getting the masses to fall for cheap thrills will be the path back to the so-called business as usual and the money will percolate up to the elites by design.

    • Well, the RBNZ change in LVR restrictions policy will now mean a lot of those AirB&B property loses will be covered as the Banks know they (are)/will be bailed out at Taxpayers & depositor expense if lending restrictions are removed. Watch as many investors add to their portfolios over the coming year or two. They won’t need a cash deposit to borrow as their equity has just been back up by the RBNZ.

  14. paul henry…?
    What?
    Why are giving that bald headed mump oxygen?
    That tittering imbecile?
    Wasn’t he that short, pink monster that grew from the sewage that flows out of Remuera?
    From all that P, coke and twisted polyester panties ?
    Why is his buck toothed sneer here? This isn’t the place for a dry retch like him? I’ve had enough of him and his phlegm like colleagues running defence of the indefensibly greedy, lazy crooks who fucked us all but especially the working class without the kissing.
    Now? I’ll have to spend all day looking at dead ducks arse holes to replace his dumb, ugly face with as a screen saver image in my brain.
    paul henry? Who cares? Like Big Mike hoskings…? Who. Cares?
    They’re nothing. They’re nobodies. Unless you’re thinking that being cruel, greedy, narcissistic and grotesquely over paid and good ol’ plain ol’ boring is something. They’re sooooooooooo boring. Oh my God. henry, and hoskings too….
    That, is probably the worst thing of all. They’re boring.
    Those little fleas have had their day.

  15. Thanks Bomber for the review.

    I didn’t watch it and never would because the format is exactly as i suspected it would be, a sob story of the top twenty and how this pandemic will be bad for their financial health and well being.

    The clue was in the name of the programme ” paradise lost ” but whose paradise exactly ?
    Certainly not mine or yours and many others who don’t live in that country they are talking about , it is an alternative reality for the few certainly not the many.

    We do need a media platform that talks too and about real kiwis who need too be heard above the deafening chorus of hard done by rich people and their mouthpieces.

    I hope the government will act but i don’t have much confidence it will do much at all.

    In the meantime its back too business as usual in our neoliberal world in a few short weeks and our regular instalment of Lives of the rich and famous in New Zealand and how they are doing it tough.

  16. Tried to watch Paul Henry’s ‘Paradise’ – was a fail:

    1. Their are primary school children who could whip up a better stage/set using a green-screen, a bright lamp and b-roll footage of Auckland City.

    2. It was demonic how Henry rolled out the corpse of Michael Hill, not a fan of necromancy or the diamond trade myself.

    3. blah lol

  17. Zach… don’t give them ideas… on-shore child labour could make a come back 2020.

    “Their are primary school children who could whip up a better stage/set using a green-screen, a bright lamp and b-roll footage of Auckland City.”

  18. Where are the Left? Do we have a Left in NZ? I keep hearing that the Left need to mobilze, now, and quite correct, they do as now is the bestest time we have ever seen. But who are they, the Left? I’ve never seen the Left. I thought TDB was the Left. Who is gonna do all this work required to organise the Left. Can someone tell me please. Who should do this?

  19. Background looks psychedelic in his Paradise – we aren’t all stoned. Many of us are doing our best to restore humanity and respect to all so we don’t end up finding some people being physically stoned. We read about that happening elsewhere but that’s not us is it? Mr Henry is as useless as…………………………… insert your favourite put-down phrase here.

  20. If you go back to work for wages, you are nothing more than a slave.

    If you acquiesce to a return to Death Cult Capitalism, then you are nothing more than a slave.

    What are you going to be – free, or a slave.

  21. Paul Henry & The National Part

    Can we please stop the American style of reporting & speaking because to be honest we are New Zealand & sick of American bullshit
    If we want American style politics, living, Trump Bashing, promoting white supremacists, we only have to watch YouTube.
    We want kiwi style.
    National Party please watch out for this especially your so called leader or loose any gains.
