The five reasons why left wingers are pure evil

Tim Stanley writes at the Telegraph in response to a claim by a left wing blogger in the uK that right wingers are evil. He gives his 5 reasons why left wingers are pure evil.

The Labour-supporting blogger Sunny Hundal has done his bit for world peace?by declaring that Right-wingers are all ?evil?. Obviously, it?s political hyperbole at its most silly. But this kind of rhetoric is increasingly common among Left-wingers who think that conservatives who want to reform welfare, stop the NHS from killing people or make sure kids can leave school with the ability to tie their own shoe-laces are ? to use Sunny?s words ? ?heartless bastards.?

So if we?re going to play this game of tit-for-tat, I?d like to offer evidence that it?s the?Left?that?s pure evil rather than the right. Aside from hating freedom and the baby Jesus, they also commit these five mortal sins without any thought for the rest of us.

He lists the 5 reasons…Ill try and put a NZ context on them.

1. Bad stand-up comedy.?Call me old-fashioned, but I always thought a comedian was a fat man in a tux who came on stage and told jokes. But Left-wingers will laugh at something not because it?s funny but because they think they?re supposed to ? which been an enormous boon to the careers of “alternative” comedians like ?Jeremy Hardy, Josie Long, Robin Ince, Mark Thomas and Marcus Brigstocke (seriously, folks, I?ve known colonoscopies that are funnier than Marcus Brigstocke). Their acts are basically George Galloway speeches with a laughter track added and one of their favourite targets are the ?fascist simpletons? who believe in God. Oddly, though, they never pick on fundamentalist Muslims. They can?t seem to see the funny side of having a fatwa put on their head. ? Read more »

Imagine life without Radio NZ and TVNZ? … Bliss?

Think about how great it would be without the left wing bias and just plain wrong-ness of Radio NZ and TVNZ.

Earlier I blogged about what is happening in Greece…now the subsidised illuminati of the BBC are working themselves into a lather in the UK.

But others like me think it would be bliss, and the trough-snufflers of state funded broadcasting would finally have their throats cut.

John Humphrys has invited Radio 4 listeners to imagine life without the BBC. They are to picture themselves sitting down to watch Countryfile or Holby City, only for the screen to go black. That?s what happened to the Greek national broadcaster ERT, you see, the Hellenic equivalent of the BBC. On Tuesday night the good citizens of Greece were watching the news when? pfft. Apparently the money had run out.

I closed my eyes, but before I had a chance to imagine a Britain without the BBC, Humphrys dismissed the idea as ?unimaginable?. You have to admire the complacency behind that ?unimaginable?. The Herculean smugness. The scale of the self-congratulation. And it?s not just Humphrys. They?re all at it, all the 30,000 or so people who work for the BBC.? Read more »
