Media must lie about treaty “partnership” as condition of funding

Are you wondering why NZ’s media has suddenly gone crazy on Maori language and other Maori issues? The answer is simple. Money. Your money, given to them by Jacinda Ardern. Most shockingly, its all part of Labour’s nefarious plan to install a Maori “partnership” govt, as indicated by the recently discovered He Puapua document.

In order to qualify for the govt grants (Jacinda’s “rescue package”) media have to jump through hoops, and embracing the ideas of the radical Maori separatists who make up a large part of the Labour govt is one of them.

To get their grubby grasping hands on the $55 million in the second tranche of funding for “Public Interest Journalism”, media must agree to staff training in “Te Tiriti Education”. Journalism funded under the scheme must

“actively promote the principles of Partnership, Participation and Active Protection under Te Tiriti o Waitangi acknowledging Māori as a Te Tiriti partner.”

Get it? In order to qualify for the handouts, media must acknowledge and do propaganda identifying the TOW as the basis for a “partnership”. This claim of course is completely false. A lie. A big lie. There was never any partnership proposed in the treaty.

Jacinda Ardern and her Maori caucus are paying the New Zealand media to lie, and the New Zealand media are so cravenly unprincipled, broke and worthless, they’re happy to do so. The first eligibility requirement listed in the application advice package is-

“Commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi and to Māori as a Te Tiriti partner

As well, there are requirements for staffing-

Appropriate people attached to the project in leadership roles who can manage and advise on these cultural and spiritual aspects of the production at critical stages (e.g. research, language advisors)

This is a clear direction for the use of Maori separatist radicals. Now we know what Broadcaster Minister Kris Faafoi was telling the media when he visited every newsroom in the country prior to the last election.

To summarise, the Ardern govt and the NZ media (by means of dollars taken from you) are combined in an illegitimate defacto govt who are really controlled by the Maori caucus of Labour, and they are intent on pushing the “partnership” structure as the rightful govt of NZ. In other words, a complete standing on its head of our current Westminster based democracy.

Would 52% of NZers have voted for Jacinda in the 2020 election if they had known this truth? Doubtful. The country has been lied to and conned by Jacinda Ardern in the worst possible way, and the NZ media are in boots and all.
