I am not a huge fan of the Lord of the Rings but was impressed by Peter Jackson’s visualization of the “powers of darkness” and especially the “Eye of Sauron”. Well the “Eye of Sauron” has turned its throbbing and bloodshot gaze on my little blog . . . in the form of a broadside from one of the intellectual heavy hitters of our conservative intellectual tradition Mr Clint Heine, who in addition to a charming way with words also has a great name that sounds, well, very right wing. 

 

A hysterical and vicious Hard Right political network has grown into existence in recent years based on the blogosphere and one loud, slightly unhinged digital voice blarping and braying over the herd of angry finance students is that of Clint. His point of difference is he not only hates anyone who has a concern for other human beings (or as he refers to them, communists) but he now also hates Dunedin.

Clint claims he was a “playboy” during his time in Dunedin, an image that causes a shudder. Playboy probably translates as one of the drunken, emotionally incontinent slobs who arrive in town to “sink some piss” for their tenure and generally bring the vibe down for us locals. Anyway I don’t know, as I’ve never met Clint socially, but he seems to be slightly to the Right of Pinochet, and he is scared that Dunedin is going to elect a radical left winger one of these days.

It’s bad that Clint is scared. As we all know, Fear is the path to the Dark Side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering . . .
