Kim Dotcom has broken his silence about the election and has decided to play the hurt victim card.
Funny how he never paid PR people for image control and always did it himself, yet somehow it is someone else’s fault his political dreams lie in tatters.
Dotcom says that for the sake of the artists he wants Baboom to succeed. But, in order for that to happen, a sacrifice needed to be made.
‚ÄúThe best way to achieve that success was to take me out of Baboom completely. We have a great management team and some brave investors in place. The brand ‚ÄėKim Dotcom‚Äô is toxic and a major distractor to what Baboom is trying to achieve,‚ÄĚ he concedes.
He got that right, brand Kim Dotcom IS toxic.
Now for the delusions of the fat man.
But while those same strengths allowed the Internet Party to became a news event every day leading up to the election, Dotcom‚Äôs profile and history ‚Äď by his own admission ‚Äď became a millstone around the party‚Äôs neck. Every aspect of his private life became a point of leverage for his political opposition.
‚ÄúThe Internet Party failed to deliver meaningful change in New Zealand at the last election because of the media spin by our opponents,‚ÄĚ Dotcom says.
‚ÄúThey have successfully turned me into a villain, a German Nazi, a horrible employer, a political hacker, a practitioner of prohibited digital voodoo magic and nothing short of a monster. I would hate that guy too if I didn‚Äôt know that it wasn‚Äôt true.‚ÄĚ
