See below. From Bruce Moon, to the editor of The Nelson Mail, Sunday, August 5, 2018
Thus it is attached too for your information. It was delivered to a very attentive full house – in fact a notice to that effect had to be posted two minutes before its scheduled start. There was not a single attempt at heckling or any other disturbance; questions and comments were courteous and relevant. Its success is at least a small contribution to the defence of truth, fairness and democracy which are so much at peril in New Zealand today. Elsewhere, in consequence of its earlier banning, it has appeared in various social media and assuredly been read by many more people that would ever had done so had it been delivered as intended in the first place.
As one commentator put it, Nelson now appears to be the prime candidate for the distinction of being the first town in New Zealand to indulge in book-burning, though possibly Auckland may vie for that dubious distinction.
This very brave man has long been been fighting back. Who is going to help him?
This is a serious question. New Zealand is now in many ways at the crossroads – and it depends on each of us which way it’s going to go… as so much needs to be reclaimed – ( To understand how, see www.100days.co.nz).
What can one conclude, looking at the record of our media giants these years, and the utter bias demonstrated by the now almost inevitable, one-sided presentation of very important issues?
These include the heavy-handed promotion of the politics of racial superiority.
The lack of much-needed scrutinising of the massively costly and divisive Maori supremacy movement – by no means supported by most part-Maori – but gaining far too much mileage in being pushed by a relatively few radicalised extremists – has reached disgraceful levels.
And the biggest challenge to every New Zealander has to be that none of us can walk away and say it doesn’t matter. It matters very much.
It is individuals, accumulatively, who count. We can ring up the local newspaper – and say we’ve had enough – tell the editors. They won’t like it – but we needn’t grieve over that 🙂 And if you have done your bit…and someone else does the same thing…on it goes. Even if it was only you – you count.
Or what about contacting Talkback – and/or asking your MP, your paid employee, what he/she is doing to represent you and the majority in opposing this damaging movement?
MPs don’t like Talkback. No surprises there. It so very often tells them how so many New Zealanders really feel…
And behind it all, what about the fine individuals you/ we let down, by doing nothing to support them?
We don’t have to be experts in any particular area to realise that there are things very wrong in a number of important areas.
What about saying that we’ve had enough of deliberate bias? And does it raise the question of a basic corruption within these media?
One brave man, among others, has long been challenging this.
