Right Weapon, Wrong Target

Rod Donald took some pretty strong pot shots at the Tailor's Dummy in his Gangreen speech the other day. You remember the bit about Winston being like Hitler? Only trouble is Riscible Rod was aiming his guns the wrong way.

Winston doesn't have a well oiled propoganda machine headed by a scheming, shifty and ruthless Dr Goebells. Winston doesn't have a state funded electronic TV and Radio broadcasting system, heavily populated with the party faithful. Winston doesn't have a compliant police commissioner. Winston doesn't have a 'tame' Riechstag, wherein rules of discipline apply only to opposition members.

What Winston does have is a fellow party member, an ex teacher who has discovered that 'someone' has been methodically identifying and telephoning his former pupils, seeking out any 'dirt on him.' Well, so it seems, according to Morning Report to day.

Now, who do you think would have access to the resources needed for a well organised covert operation like that? The Abwher? The NKVD? The PPTA? The New Zealand Labour Party?

I'm blowed if I know.

Is that former teacher you are reffering to Brian Donnely?
I didn't hear morning report.

I agree Murray, but don't forget, it's not St Helen's fault, couldn't be, it's those nasty selfish people who can't stand to see justice and equality spring forth and multiply.

Sorry to do this here but I have found an interesting article from the LATimes on the whole Amnesty-USA-Gulag thing. I will post the link in the gulag post thread.

Perhaps Mr Donald and people who liken the Labour party to Nazis should take a leaf from Mr Rodney Hide: "Politicians who declare opponents “fascists,” Hitlers” and “Nazis” belittle fascism’s true horror."

Sensible idea Davros. I wonder why Rodney thought, in his wisdom, to restrict the practice to just politicians?
