It takes a unique mind to work out that mega-capitalist Kim Dotcom is a revolutionary socialist.
IN PERHAPS ONE OF HIS most absurd posts of recent times, blogger and Labour Party supporter Chris Trotter has decided that Internet - Mana is no less than a revolutionary socialist party.
His basis for this claim is nothing more than the fact than the audience at a Kim Dotcom meeting chanted 'Fuck you, John Key!' Seduced by the spectacle as he so often is, Trotter's observation is as dismal as his recent comments that some of the protesters against Israel's barbaric assault on Gaza might of been anti-semitic.
It is an indication of just how right wing mainstream politics have become in New Zealand that someone as determinedly anti-socialist as Chris Trotter can claim that the spectacle of a wealthy capitalist encouraging his youthful audience to tell John Key to 'fuck off' is somehow 'revolutionary'. However he manages to waffle on about this for five hundred words or so, even dragging Labour stalwarts
Harry Holland and Peter Fraser into his nonsensical ramblings.
It is also instructive to note that while Trotter leaps to his keyboard to laud Internet Mana as 'revolutionary' he only has scorn and derision for genuine revolutionary socialists.
