TG Brown of Te Kauwhata writes in today’s edition:
[. . .] One doesn’t have to be fundamental to read in the Christian Bible Jeremiah 5 v22 that God has “fixed ocean levels and they cannot be changed” which implies the same devil behind Hitler and Stalin is now behind the United Nations, only too sophisticated perhaps to be discerned other than by fundamental Christian knowledge, and that climate change is a globalists’ political tool or real conspiracy. The UN is based upon a “supreme being” to accommodate all religions, giving us a pagan bill of rights, a negative document compared with the Bible’s 10 commandments and the cross of Jesus Christ – the same 10 commandments that helped Western civilisation prosper under Magna Carta until we foolishly abdicated from it some 50 years or more ago. [. . . ]
The Waikato Times advises that this letter was abridged. Aren’t you curious about the bits that were cut out because they were even more Anglocentric, even more a-historical, even crazier? I am.
But this letter isn’t as crazy as the one in yesterday’s edition from Glywn McInnes of Hamilton. I cannot understand why a good newspaper would have published it. Although it isn’t long I can’t bring myself to quote it in full because it is the most unpleasant piece of racism I have ever seen in the New Zealand mainstream media, so this is just part of it:
Recently there have been reports the Jewish people are returning in droves to the country of Germany. It seems Berlin now has the dubious honour of being host to the largest number of young Jews in any city in Europe. [. . . ]
Obviously the lesson learnt through the World War II Holocaust does not come through fully to their understanding.
Looking on the bright side, as one tries to do, at least this idiot doesn’t deny the Holocaust. She or he just regrets that the Jews didn’t learn their lesson from it.
Having typed that out, I shall go and wash my hands.
