Dumb and Dumber

Everyone knows that Hone Harawira is dumber than a sack of hammers. But who would have thought Maori academic Dr. Ranginui Walker would be as dumb, if not dumber.

Hone Harawira has described Osama bin Laden as “a man who fought for the rights, the land and the freedom of his people”.

That was Dumb speaking, now for Dumber:

Professor Ranginui Walker also acknowledged bin Laden on Te Karere. Dr Walker likened him to the 19th century Maori prophet Te Kooti Rikirangi because of his fight for his country.

It has obviously escaped Dumb and Dumber that Osama bin Laden was a Saudi, living in Pakistan committing acts of terror all around the world but specifically in the US, Afghanistan and Iraq. None of those countries are Saudi Arabian so quite how he is “fighting” for “the rights, the land and the freedom of his people” or “country” is beyond me, but in la-la land where both of these idiots live it seems to be the case.

I wonder what other maori think about Dr. Walker comparing Te Kooti with a terrorist. Either way they are lauding a terrorist. I think we should put both on a watch list.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
