E hoa mā, nau mai haere mai ki another episode of Shit Hot People’s Politburo! This fortnight we all piled up in Emmy’s bedroom to record another intimate episode of your favourite communist podcast.
We start off talking about the big splash Justine has made on the international stage, being sued by an Israeli “NGO” for the emotional harm her letter to teen heart-throb Lorde caused a handful of Israeli fans. Israel reckons she owes them $19,000. Justine and her co-author Nadia have requested you to support the fundraiser they’re running to support mental health services in Gaza instead: givealittle.co.nz/cause/help-justi…money-for-mental
We have a new segment of the show, The Labour Party Is Not Your Friend, where we talk over the New Zealand centre-left’s repeated betrayals of the working class. This week: petrol taxes and budget surpluses!
We also bring our intellectual might to bear on your personal problems. Are your children exhibiting liberal tendencies? We’ll fix them right up after a brief, ten-hour long session of brutally-enforced self-criticism. This fortnight we absolutely fucking self-destruct arguing over a listener’s question concerning Harry Potter. As always, DMs are open on our Twitter account: twitter.com/pplspolitburo
At the end of this month, the forces of reaction and imperialism are descending on New Zealand for the annual New Zealand Defence Industry Association weapons expo, for a bonanza of weapons wheeling and dealing. Members of YOUR politburo will be going down to the expo, to gawk at the carnage and put our bodies on the line to bully arms dealers. We fill you in on what the Wexpo is and how you can help fuck it up. If you want to come along to Wexpo, check our the APA (aucklandpeaceaction.wordpress.com/) and PAW (peaceactionwellington.wordpress.com/) websites and facebook pages for more info.
Finally, we poison our already internet-rotten brains in our Cum In My Library segment, by reading an article from the bottom of the barrel, the WhaleOil blog. This week, some fuckwit argues that climate change doesn’t exist, does exist but we should ignore it, or does exist and we can’t do anything about it anyway so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. This podcast, for one, doesn’t intend to drown in boiling water, so join the revolution comrades.
As Mao Zedong teaches, revolutionaries are like fish and the people are our water. If you want to kick us a cup of the good shit and keep us from suffocating, consider supporting the show on Patreon: www.patreon.com/peoplespolitburo
