MEDIAWATCH: I am the Eggstein, you are the Transmission Gully Walrus – Goo goo g’joob

I am he as you are he as you are me
And we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun
See how they fly
I’m crying
Sitting on a corn flake
Waiting for the van to come
Corporation T-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you’ve been a naughty boy
You let your face grow long
I am the egg man
They are the egg men
I am the walrus
Goo goo g’joob

‘I am Eggstein’: Young Nat Jessee MacKenzie admits trolling female politicians, resigns from National Party

A Young Nat has outed himself as the person responsible for mysoginistic trolling of female politicians, saying his community board hopeful flatmate had nothing to do with it.

Jessee MacKenzie made the admission after the courts unmasked his Christchurch flatmate, fellow Young Nat Bryce Beattie, as the owner of the computer IP address linked to the harassment.

The pair have since resigned from the National Party and Beattie is also no longer running for a seat on a Christchurch community board.

In a culture of aggressively policing micro aggressions, this is big news. It’s like Sara Templeton is channeling Will Smith, but in a righteous Action Station approved way.

This story of dickhead Young Nats making rude anonymous comments on Twitter pf all places has dominated Stuff headlines alongside unhappy Wellingtonians who got their car windows cracked from loose gravel!

Transmission Gully: Motorists complain of chipped and cracked windscreens on new motorway

Motorists have been left with cracked and chipped windscreens after driving on Transmission Gully less than 24 hours after the motorway opened.

After hundreds of millions in overspending, and waiting almost a century to be built, the issue is cracked windscreens?

I’m not saying we are a small petty people with all the cultural maturity of a can of day old Coke Cola, but

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

well that’s exactly what I am saying.

Middle Class White women unmasking anonymous online trolls and new motorway cracked windscreens – this is us now.

25 000 are on emergency housing wait lists, there is a war raging in the Ukraine, the climate is in actual full scale meltdown in Antarctica, there is an economic reckoning looming that makes wide spread conflict highly likely, 50 000 NZ homes live in poverty, 200 000 kids live in poverty, renters live in poverty and we have a gang war about to explode.

But sure, online Trolls and chipped windscreens, that’s where the real issues at!

We are so involved in News that only involves us now as social media algorithms tell advertisers what triggers our attention, and in a world of micro aggression uber alas, online Trolls are a bigger social issue than anything else.

“But that person said a mean thing about me’ – we are a culture of easily triggered perpetual adolescents with no adults left in the room.

This is why we can’t have nice things like a functioning public broadcasting service, our demand to be fed ideas and thoughts that are completely self absorbed has robbed us of intellectual curiosity that doesn’t directly attach to ME!

French philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre once said ‘Hell is other people’, I think Hell is other people’s social media feeds and commuting to work stories.
