The National Business Review, and Ports of Auckland, are conspiring against him, RadioLive talkback host Willie Jackson said this afternoon.
In his first show since his controversial comments yesterday, the former Alliance MP said “The waterfront bosses and their mates at the NBR want no opposition … The desperate right wing is trying to drive me off air.”
He added later in the show that, “We must not buckle to the right wing dogs at the National Business Review and the leaders of the Ports of Auckland.”
Mr Jackson apologised for saying yesterday that picketers should whack cars and “bust their placards over scabs”.
He was not inciting violence, he said this afternoon. “You were,” chipped in co-host John Tamihere.
Mr Jackson said he stood by his comments that the 300 sacked strikers should get more militant, and follow "occupy" tactics similar to those employed by actress Lucy Lawless recently.
Ms Lawless and five other Greenpeace protestors were charged with burglary on February 27 after occupying the drilling rig of Shell-contraced vessel Nobel Explorer at Port Taranaki for 72 hours before surrending to police.
The anti Springbok tour protestors and the "brilliant" occupation of the Waihopai spy base (which caused $1.2 million damage), were other role models for the wharfies, Mr Jackson said.
Mr Jackson's show, including archives of previous episodes, can be heard through RadioLive's website here.
