The Disneyfication of NZ Politics

Paul Thomas writes at the Herald:

Meanwhile the Disneyfication of our electoral politics continued with the launch of the Internet Party or, as cynics call it, the Society for the Prevention of Kim Dotcom’s Extradition.

In what may be the ultimate test of the notion that there’s no such thing as bad publicity, Dotcom revealed that he’s the — presumably proud — owner of a signed copy of Adolf Hitler’s autobiographical Nazi blueprint, Mein Kampf.

A columnist in this paper thought Dotcom might be just the fellow to wrest the country from John Key’s evil clutches. 

Given that he’s armed with a copy of Mein Kampf, one nervously wonders how Dotcom would go about that.

Hone Harawira, Dotcom’s political ally — or not, depending what time of day you logged on to a news website — wasn’t bothered by the Mein Kampf furore, insisting it was just an investment.

I somehow doubt Harawira showed the same indulgence towards companies that invested in South Africa under apartheid.

The hypocrisy and sanctimony of the political left in New Zealand is breathtaking.
