Remember when Hone Harawira outraged Don Brash by comparing him to Adolf Hitler?
Mr Harawira stood by his previous comparison of Dr Brash to Hitler and said his politics were of denigration of Maori.
Dr Brash told the programme he felt that was offensive.
“I mean, in what sense am I like Hitler?
Dr Brash says he is constantly regaled with horror stories of the “little Hitlers” who far too often seem to populate the lower levels of local and regional government.
He says says they throw their weight around and sometimes refuse to grant RMA consents on flimsy excuses.
Because, really, that’s what was objectionable about Hitler – he did sometimes refuse to grant consents on flimsy excuses. Like, when his General Staff wanted to divert resources into the conflict with Russia and away from the death camps exterminating Gypsies and Jews, Hitler would be all, ‘Nah. I don’t feel like it.’ Is that the attitude we want in our public servants?
Dr Brash also reiterated ACT’s desire to scrap the Emissions Trading Scheme and challenged the science behind global warming.
He says even if a case can be made that human activity is behind an increase in global temperatures, it is not obvious that this is necessarily a bad thing for the planet.
So we might change the chemical composition of the atmosphere of our planet? Eh – what’s the worst that could happen?
This child-like idiot ran our Central Bank for fourteen years.
