Lame Tame, NZ’s one man version of CNN
The worst thing about the virtually blanket left wing orientation of the New Zealand media is that we who are not afflicted with the blindness of that ideology never see questions asked from the perspective we’re interested in.
A perfect example was Jack Tame’s interview with Judith Collins this morning where every question was sourced from a Labour party talking point. One could be forgiven for thinking that Mr Tame’s earpiece had a direct connection to Prime Minister Ardern. Or one of her numerous press officers.
This was especially so in the segment dealing with the LynnMall terrorist, where Mr Tame queried the idea of potential terrorists being deported by asking in his typically whiny way-
“would deporting known extremists to poorer countries where there are fewer resources that could be dedicated to monitoring them, is this the right thing to do, is this consistent with being a good global citizen?”
Ms Collins gave a good answer to this idiotic question by pointing out that the NZ govt’s primary responsibility is to keep its own citizens safe. She also thought NZ had been lax in the past in who it had allowed into this country as refugees or otherwise, which is again perfectly correct.
She stated that when refugees or other entrants were given residency there was an implied loyalty to NZ in that residency, and if they breached that loyalty they should be deported as soon as possible. Another excellent idea. Its easy to think of many so called refugees who were allowed in under questionable circumstances and who daily betray this country for radical global left wing groups.
Such people are also given citizenship far too easily. We have enough treasonous global leftists born here without inviting the bastards in.
Ms Collins has to be guarded about what she says because the far left liberals who have infiltrated the once conservative National party will stab her in the back in an instant if she steps out of line, so it was gutsy of her to express opinions so abrasive to the ruling class.

Mr Bishop Mr Luxon, and Ms Willis and Ms Stanford, the bunch of lefties who engineered and backed Todd Muller’s disastrous leadership venture, never get asked any questions from a right wing perspective because there’s just no one remaining in the NZ media who thinks in a way that would allow the framing of such questions.
Instead all we see, as in Ms Stanford’s appearance on a similar show a couple of weeks ago, is a willingness to lean sharply to the left the instant they feel any pressure from show hosts. It was refreshing to see Ms Collins refusing to engage in this kind of immediate surrender.
On the other hand, the left must have threatened Judith with a rebellion if she continued to fight the cultural war, because she seems to be a lot less interested lately, and the “Demand The Debate” slogan also appears to have been shelved. Pity. For a moment there it appeared the Nats had grown a collective spine. Should have known better than to think such nonsense.
