The Shield of Sanctimony, Ctd

No oil in that PVC raincoat?

No oil in that PVC raincoat?

Green party followers and Greenpeace activists like telling people how they live a virtuous lifestyle. Take Gareth Hughes for instance, he constantly whines about carbon footprints and pollution and yet has one of the largest parliamentary travel bills.

Lucy Lawless is another prime example. She is telling us all how she loathes big oil yet she took their filthy dollars for an advert. Just as the green muppets claim that climate scientist who takes big oil money is tainted forever so too is a green activist who showered herself of in dirty oil money. SHe was once a shill of big oil, she remains a shill for big oil, tainted by her dirty money.

Never mind too that she has a garage of gas guzzling Mercedes Benz vehicles and is currently churning through wast amounts of diesel with bulldozers and diggers at the work site for her Orakei mansion on Kepa Road. Nevermind the vast amounts of cement and carbon emissions that go into making cement and concrete will be needed to build her palace.

She cares not a jot for thousands of litre of fuel used on the generators for the set of Xena. Or the fuel needed to get the staff and crew to remote locations. Or the helicopters….

I’ll bet you a dollar to a knob of goat poo that her carbon footprint is several times larger than almost any other person in new Zealand, yet she has the sanctimonious audacity to protest about big oil.

It matters not to her. She is covered by the shield of sanctimony that all green warrrior princesses are covered with.

Hypocrisy is simply a word found in the dictionary that has no meaning for them.

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.
