Reported by Stuff….
‘A woman who filmed herself abusing a police officer at Ihumātao has issued an apology.
Manukau resident Anikaaro Harawira-Havili, 32, said she “went too far” when she swore at an officer and told him to go back to his own country at the south Auckland protest site on Monday.
“I can honestly admit I obviously overreacted. I was totally in the hype and anger of the moment,” she said…’
I ask what sort of apology is it when you dont even admit what you did wrong?
It’s not an apology at all but a refusal to apologise.
I think this fact highlights a very important attribute common to Maori Radicals… they live in a state of self denial.
They refuse to see their own wrongs.
They willfully perpetuate a mindset of cognitive dissonance to the facts of reality.
Anyway before I explain how this all underpins the delusions of Activists like Anikaaro Harawira and Pania Newton, let me first state that what follows is not written in the spirit of malice towards them, but in the spirit of exposing the delusions that underpin the whole grievance industry and Maori radicalism.
It is not my intention to ‘get personal’ about these particular individuals… I am hoping hoping to break down false ideas and let the light shine through… so let me state for the record that I dont harbour ill will towards these woman… though they may harbour ill will towards me should they read my opinions… yet ill leave such conjectures to fate.
I do not doubt the sincerity of their beliefs… but I question their validity.
Sincerity does not automatically make false ideas right.
I will also acknowledge the fact that at least Anikaaro admitted she was carried away with the ‘hype of the moment’… and who among us has not in the throws of intense moments said things we later regret?
I would like now to talk about some facts that she reveled about herself….
“In terms of being a racist, I’m of Māori, English and Scottish descent. I also have a Tongan son. “….
And there you have it folks!
This admission carries far more weight than she intends, out of a desire to deny her ingrained racism that she has imbibed from Racist Maori Radical doctrines… for a fleeting moment she drops her Maori Radical persona and admits to… or rather conveniently appeals to the fact that she is a descendant of British colonials herself*!
Think about that for a while with regard to the claims she and her friends are peddling at Ihumatao… she is in fact protesting *against herself!*
She is a Pakeha too!
Like myself Anikaaro is a New Zealander descendant from *both Maori and Pakeha*… from both Native and Colonialist.
This fact betrays something very obvious and important as by her very existence we can deduce that at some point in her Maori lineage her elders forgot about the colonial strife and eventually got on fine enough with Pakeha to actually *intermarry*… and thus she is the fruit of this union…. she is actually representative and physical embodiment of Hobson’s Pledge at Waitangi!
‘He Iwi Tahi Tatau’… we are now *one people*!
Yet sadly we can be assured this admission on her part is not something she is proud of… its actually something she buries so that she can then play at being *an oppressed Maori*, and to do this she must harbour a secret shame at her own lineage on the Paeha side to be able to stand up in public and accuse them of being racist oppressors…whereas I myself am not ashamed of my Pakeha heritage… because I dont buy into that false narrative.
I dont see British colonization as a great evil, and I love *New Zealand* as it is… which is was a beautiful melding of English and Maori cultures… until Maori radicalism came along and began to subvert this harmony and Rob Pakeha of their proud heritage as Pioneers and nation builders, and instead portray Pakeha as racist invaders!
Well Anikaaro… your own Blood betrays your assertions… you are the child of the union and integration between these two historic groups… and your distinctions are from a by gone age that no longer exists now… except in your head.
And you in fact are representative of the voluntary union of Maori and Pakeha!
So this is the fraud that underpins such protests as are happening at Ihumatao, because these people pretend they are a distinct and oppressed minority and the victims of another distinct group ‘of oppressors’ when in reality no such distinctions can be made *because the so called victim belongs to *both groups* making her both victim and oppressor!
Mathematically speaking… They cancel each other out!
Taking this to its ultimate logical conclusion we get to the heart of the matter… and that is these deluded people deny reality and truth… and seek to claim to be something that they are not…. The fact is they are attempting to pretend *they are not Pakeha* themselves… they have successfully fooled themselves and want the country to also buy into their fantasy … that they can with a straight face claim to be ‘Maori victims’…. yet they are not…. Their claim is false… they are not Maori in the sense that Maori were Maori in the 19th century.
This itself evidences the very opposite truth in opposition to the claim of being a member of a segregated and oppressed people… It is in fact a testament to One-ness with pakeha and a success story of mutual integration…. and peaceful coexistence… what was once two separate human families have become One, and so this whole treaty grievance industry is a farce!
Now as I have already said I myself have both Maori and Pakeha blood too, and yet it is important to clearly state that the truth does not prohibit Anikaaro from celebrating her Maori-ness.
I have no problem at all with Maori-Pakiha descendants like her preferring to identify themselves more with their Native heritage… and enjoy that inheritance… and to embrace that cultural heritage… yet that is a completely different kettle of fish to what is going on with treaty separatism!
We need to make an important distinction between the right of people like Anikaaro to freely embrace Maori culture,which is legitimate, from their illegitimate Political ambitions and claims that They are a distinct race of people who should have superior rights!
Treaty separatism is a vile racist scam.
There is no reason why we should not establish One law for all, and have liberty and equality… and for ;Maori to carry on enjoying their own heritage *as equals*…. its just the all the handouts and special treatment will *stop* and Maori like her will have to lose her fake sense of ‘superior entitlement* to live and enjoy this country.
Ending treaty separatism is in fact a moral imperative for our Nation.
Maori like Anikaaro need to snap out of their malevolent racist ideas and must start respecting their Non-Maori neighbours as fellow countrymen of equal status and rights to themselves!
That is what ending racism looks like… yet that is precisely what our government is refusing to do… instead our government *perpetuates separatism and grievance* … ie the government perpetuates *racism* and Apartheid.
Its time New Zealanders kicked these types of politicians out and get some who will end all this racist governance and establish one law for all!
One last point…. maybe Anikaaro will also deny she is ashamed of her Pakeha blood… after all why should *she assume* any perceived ‘collective guilt’ for oppression that she places on her colonizing ancestors account?
After all *she might argue that herself has not acted in an oppressive manor towards Maori!
Yet what would such an argument do but sweep the entire presumption that under pins Maori Radicals demands for compensation from he contemporary Pakeha kin?
For what is true of herself is equally true of all Pakeha living today… non of them has engaged in Colonial oppression any more than she has!
What more No Maori living today has been the victim of colonial oppression… all claims that are being held up and assumed to be colonial injustice all happened generations before they were born!
So just as ‘Collective guilt’ is a scam… so too is their claims of ‘collective victimism’… the noting that simply because they are descended from a certain ethic group… that they can thereby claim their ‘victimhood’.
Its all too shameful and absurd to be countenanced!
How the hell did New Zealanders allow their nation to be hijacked by such twisted logic???
And how long will you allow this lunacy to continue ?
More from Tim….
A story in tonights news feed has provoked me to write this blog… it is the story of… ‘A recidivist pāua poacher banned from fishing was caught collecting shellfish in 2017 but has spent the past two years eluding the court, claiming to be governed by a different law…’
Read more here
Taranaki’s Valentine Edward Albert said the Government had a different view than his own when it came to looking after the sea.
Now this story contains all the elements of what passes today as ‘Treaty issues’… about Maori attitudes to New Zealand’s laws … and much more… yet I want to discuss an aspect of this case that is almost never contemplated… the problem of ‘Collective ownership’ with regards to the dynamics of looking after such treasures as ‘fisheries’ for the well being of species, and for posterity.
So this post is basically about conservation.
Albert is a Maori who seeks to use his Race as an excuse for his rapine of Kaimoana…. and flouting the Law.
This time… in complete disregard for having been banned from fishing and collecting shellfish for prior offences, He was caught with 240 Paua when the legal limit is 10!
The issue then becomes… does he not give a damn about the survival of Paua… the very reason limits have been set at ten being to prevent rapine that would wipe out the Paua?
So one thing is for sure… Albert is no ‘Caretaker of the land!
I want to explode the myth that Maori… or indigenous peoples anywhere are somehow more spiritually connected to the land and ‘naturally’ exhibit greater care and concerns for the ecosystems.
And so I ask you to think with me for a moment… Were Maori before 1840 really the Caretakers of the land as modern Maori radicals tend to portray their Noble and enlightened ancestors?
I think not.
let me explain why I say this…
The Maori wiped out the Moa, and if it were not for European cows and chickens they probably would have wiped out the Kiwi and many other species by now.
This is not to put the hate on them, but to highlight a *massive problem* with 2 related systemic problems that are inter-related via the notion of ‘Collective/ Commons property…. 1. the tribal anarchy that existed prior to 1840 by which tribes only controlled fisheries at the point of the spear… ie… while they were stronger than their enemies… and under this system… moving outward from their Tribal center … hunter gatherers… they would move into an area and exploit it to the maximum… and then abandon it once they had depleted it as it was no longer worth defending…. and by this way they would devastate areas… evidenced by the tiny pipi shells found in middens on all hills, etc all about the coast that show they had *zero sense* of leaving the small pipi to ensure the fishery would survive… they only were concerned with the ‘here and now’.
That was then.
Now however we have a ‘quota system’ by which the whole fishery is said to belong to ‘everyone’, and yet the limits are such as to make it barely worthwhile bothering… and we see people prosecuted as ‘criminals’… for merely gathering kai… and it may indeed be true that these people again show a total disregard for the ongoing viability of the fishery… ie they *still* only concern themselves with their own immediate gains…. why?…. because just like the days before 1840…. *Collective ownership* equates to *no ownership*… ie when someone really *owns* something of value ie has title to it as a property right… even things like a pipi bed… they are far more likely to be concerned about its ongoing viability and will take care not to *Rape it to death!*
So… with these facts being true… species… and fisheries… and blocks of land with kiwi, etc, would be much better managed if they were all privately held… because that is how property employs self interest in insuring things are well managed.
yet as long as things like Pipi beds are held as collectively owned… they will be pillaged by people who have no vested interest in giving a Rat’s arse about their future…
This is just one of the gigantic problems of collective ownership.
And it was a characteristic of Pre-European Maori tribalism… and Albert show this attitude still persists.
Compare that to when Private interests are allowed to come into play with free enterprise… salmon farms, Oysters, Mussels, etc!
The result is plenty for everyone.
Socialist radicals fuel Albert’s attitude that the New Zealand law ‘doe not apply to Maori him’ …. its official doctrine that being a Maori entitles you to many things that the rest of New Zealand are denied.
So should we be surprised by his flouting of ‘Pakeha’ rules?
His attitude speaks volumes at to how far away so many Maori are to acknowledgement of the moral precepts that the rights of everyone are equal and that the law of the land *is as applicable to him as anyone else.
I contend this arrogance has relevance and explanatory power in why Maori Crime statistics are so atrocious.
They share his contempt for the Law. (this contempt is a matter I personally have a lot of first hand understanding about!)
There is a hell of a lot unsaid here…. yet this is just a blogpost and I’m hitting ‘Publish’.
It’s now official… New Zealand now has the most Craft breweries in the world per capita.
And I am happy to report that such fierce competition is resulting is Pale Ales of the highest quality… utilizing New Zealand Hop verities that are in a league of their own!
We are now awash in Premium Beer!
Each of these Beers deserve a full review in their own right and hopefully i will get around to doing just that, yet I felt the need to blog these beers in a group just so that at least I have said something about their glory for the record.
I’m not a Beer Ponce!… in fact I like to start my evening off with a few cans of thirst quenching trusty dark Waikato Draught!
Then I like to kick it up a notch with a few Hoppy Ales with a bigger punch.
Waikato is a lot cheaper and lower alcohol than the craft ales and so it definitely serves a good purpose to start there…. and esp in the summertime you gotta have some in the fridge!
I’m traditionally a Dark Porter Ale guy, and that is what I have always brewed myself… and so it has taken me many years to develop a taste for IPA/ APAs…. yet broadening my palate has been well worth it.
Garage Projects ‘Chill Hop’. is Pricey… over $10 a can yet its absolutely divine… Decadent even. The price is the only indication to something special within… the can itself give no clues…
Pan Heads ‘The Vandal’… Superb. The best brew I have had from the Panhead range… Its flavor was understated bliss.
Batch brewing’s ‘Billfish IPA’
Garage project’s ‘Garagista’
Behemoth’s ‘Under Arm …Trans-Tasman IPA’
This is an exceptional Ale!
I would place it 1st equal with Liberty Brewing’s ‘Invictus’.
The others are all fine beers… top of the range… yet these two brews typify the best of two different ‘Hop’ flavours that are becoming characteristic of New Zealand Pale ales.
A lot less fruity than the Invictus (below) and Billfish… very much in a similar vein as ‘The Vandal’.
Liberty Brewing’s ‘Invictus’ is another pricey one… yet a premium Ale… the look of the can does justice to what it contains.
Top of the range.
Yet its the sort of beer that two cans in a row is enough… its special… its of what I describe as being one of a collection of New Zealand brews with a distinct and powerful Fruity sweet hops flavor… so strong in fact that you need to have other brews in your fridge of a less fruity style (like Bohemouth’s Underarm… or Panheads ‘The Vandal’… just to balance things out.
I have to do a shout out to Boundary Road’s ‘Stolen Base’ and Hoppelganger double IPas as though I believe they are not made by a small ‘Craft beer opperation’, they are still very good quality beers of higher alcohol content at a very reasonable price!
And all these things makes them very good Beers for the working Kiwi Bloke… I enjoy them oft.
Master Home Brewer and Kiwi Westy Bogan Beer Aficionado.
P,S… Myself and some friends did Dry July!
and I would like to recommend doing things like that!
I saved some money and lost about 4kgs around my waist and it has helped me get a better perspective on my drinking habits.
I definitely intend to reduce imbibing to just a couple of nights at the end of the week…. less is more!
Kōwhatu ki te Uru is an important Te Kawerau-a-Maki ancestor. This carving of him at Karekare is by Sunnah Thompson, a Te Kawerau-a-Maki artist. Kōwhatu ki te Uru built the pā Te Kākāwhakaara… from here
Having a good grasp of world history is essential for any New Zealander, if they are to have any hope in grasping just how different the British colonisation of New Zealand was compaired to the colonisation of other countries like America, and Australia.
The revisionist Narrative that has been foisted upon our nation by successive governments control of the Media and education system *relies on the ignorance* of the New Zealand population.
To understand the colonisation of New Zealand correctly a person must understand all the great milestones in the Development of the British Empire, including the Reformation, The revolutions, the colonization of America, The enlightenment, the American Declaration of independence, the Abolition of Slavery in the British empire, and esp the political scene in Britain before 1840.
Most importantly people need to appreciate the Character of the main players involved in the colonisation of New Zealand… their motives… and the great pains they went through to ensure the well being of the indigenous population… the injunctions to guard against rapine… the legal safeguards employed that show the benevolent concern for the Maori people.
Its all there in the history books for anyone to go read for themselves… yet that is precisely the history Our socialist government and the Radicals *dont want you to understand* because it blows gigantic holes in their revisionist narrative that paints the colonisation of New Zealand as a racist invasion.
So it is that an appreciation of the big picture is essential as such understanding sets the proper historical context for how the colonisation of New Zealand actually happened.
Without turning this post into a book length exposition I will focus on just one aspect of this story of New Zealand’s British Colonisation that has inadvertently been made very relevant by current events… of the private company Fletcher Buildings housing developments at Ihumatao.
I want to talk about the political septic swamp that has been highlighted at Ihunatao that is typical of the whole treaty grievance industry… esp the corrupt Political opportunism and modus opperandi of the likes of NZ PM Jacinda Ardern and the Greens.
I would like to point out an extreme irony taking place!
How ironic it is that Green Party MPs and radical activists and protesters are attempting to smear the Fletcher housing development in an evil light claiming that their Housing scheme at Ihumatao as being ‘Colonisation in action’!
Yes they want to make out this is another case of Pakeha greed and oppression of ‘poor Maori’!
Unfortunately many people who are rightly affronted by these radical claims will still themselves be of the opinion that the British colonisation of New Zealand was driven by Greed and racism… as that is the narrative they have been spoon fed by our government… none the less these people will deny that what Flectcher Building is doing can be so construed to be ‘Colonisation in action’.
It is rather simply Land development in a modern society, building much needed housing for a city in dire need.
I agree with such an evaluation… yet still let me now point out that how Fletchers have behaved in this affair *is in a very positive way* comparative to how a very historic Colonial Company envisioned that colonisation and development ought to take place… following a code of high ethics and high moral values, and Good will towards Maori.
I am referring to Edward Gibbon Wakefield, and his New Zealand company.
In modern times both Wakefield and The New Zealand Company have suffered extreme post-humus character assignations by those with malevolent political agendas, determined to bury the enlightened truth about the colonisation of New Zealand, and supplant it with a Bastardisation of history… rewriting colonisation as a Racist scheme of systematic oppression and greed!
Yet as I have already said… such Modern revisionist propaganda relies upon ignorant and unlearned ears.
So let me now explain why I actually accept the argument that Fletchers development in many ways can be seen as ‘Colonisation in action’.
I say it’s actually 100% true… but not in the negative sense that these haters and nutbar Green party Mps suggest… but in a very positive way Fletchers is demonstrating a principle that was first enunciated by Edward Gibbon Wakefield and later published in his great work ‘the Art of colonisation 1849 ‘ which proves the very opposite *motivation* was at the heat of British colonistaion of New Zealand.
Not only was Wakfields motivation the relief of overcrowding and poverty in Britain, but also the welfare and betterment of the ‘native’ population of New Zealand.
Early 19th century ‘Aotearoa’ (NZ) was Stone Age and barbarous.
Cannibalism and tribal warfare were the norm.
European whalers were working the Seas and had established Drinking and whoredom at Russell… then known as the ‘black hole of the Pacific’… and as such tensions began to mount between thes lawless Riffraf and the Maori People…
The level of poverty here is best described as third world… yet it was out of a Protestant Christian belief in spreading the light of the Gospel into the darkest regions of the earth in obedience to their divine calling that ‘Mechanic Missionaries’ first arrived here from the Church missionary society… bringing with them the arts of the Modern world… and preaching the brotherhood of mankind.
It was the Missionaries along with NZ Resident James Bugsby whose council led the Coalition of Maori Chiefs tp petition the English Crown to bring New Zealand under their imperial wing and establish the rule of Law.
New Zealand was the last nation on Earth to be colonsied by Britain, and as such Britain (esp Wakefield) had learned a great deal from their past endeavors… esp the painful lessons of the American revolution and declaration of Independence.
Before 1840, England at the very time of Wakefield was writing ‘The Art of Colonisation’ had already abolished slavery, and was experiencing a wave of Humanitarian ideals esp with regard to the Equality of all human beings.
It is a matter of public record that Hobson’s instructions (which he did with Bugsby’s aid) was to treat with the Indigenous people of New Zealand for their voluntary session of sovereignty over the country to the British Crown in exchange for their establishment of Law and Order… and their Protection from France.
Though the Expanse of British Empire was at it Zenith in power and domination, still she was very reluctant in accepting responsibility for New Zealand.
Not only was it on the opposite side of the world, Britain had sustained heavy financial burdens and troubles from it’s colonies and was in no mood for more of the same.
The Treaty of Waitangi is a testament to the beneficent attitude of Britain towards the Maori People, and their concerns for them that they be fairly treated during the inevitable colonisation of New Zealand that was already in process.
The 2nd clause of the Treaty that allows for Maori to sell any lands they were willing to part with directly to the British Crown, not only was it a safeguard against Land Sharks swindling them. but also reflects a fundamental principle of Wakefield’s ‘Art of Colinisation’ whereby Land is acquired *and Pooled* by the government, surveyed, given title, and systematically on sold to Colonists at a rate that would prevent a Glut of available land being on the market and thus by this means maintain property values.
This is an economic lesson he learned by appreciating the disasters that unfolded during the un-systemaic colonisation of other countries like Australia.
By controlling the Land supply to the market, Wakefield argued that the colonial government will be able to get better prices… and use the money for infrastructure, Public works, and cover the expenses of Government administration (sparing British taxpayers of an extra burden).
Wakefield’s ‘Art’ of colonisation and development was *self funding* and designed to insure the indigenous population were fairly treated .
Furthermore… not only was Wakfield’s enlightened principles embodied in the Treaty of Waitangi… a treaty designed for the welfare of the Maori people, making them equal Brittish subjects with their Pakeha neighbours… enjoying all the same rights… and having the same protections of the Law… Wakefield’s ‘New Zealand Company’ planned to bring a controlled and steady flow of Migrants from England (bringing relief from the squalor and overcrowding of British cities that had resulted from the industrial revolution and subsequent urbanization)… Migrants of the Best moral character and enterprise (unlike the convicts who were shipped to Australia), and to purchase land to create settlements… towns… and his plans for such settlements not only called for respect of the indigenous population, but also included allotments for them *within the settlements*!
not only does this display an inclusive disposition towards Maori-pakeha co-existence and mutual assimilation, and association, Wakfield also had a grasp of economic realities and benefits that are derived when wilderness is converted into a hub of human activity.
Property goes from being of small value, into being highly valued when it is a part of a thriving community, via the law of supply and demand!
Wakefied knew that the allotments given to the indigenous folk living within the community would increase exponentially in value, comparative to when the land lay as unoccupied waste.
And Wakfield was keen to see the indigenous population enjoy their portion of such gains that come from colonisation!
Likewise when we jump forward almost 2 centuries we see from the deal reportedly done between themselves and Te Kawerau a Maki that Fletcher Building has acted in both a generous and inclusive manor and insured that the tribes people will also benefit from the development!
And it is my contention that in truth this reflects the true spirit by which the historic collonisation of New Zealand!
This is why both Maori and Pakeha cultures have assimilated each other to the degree that via intermarriage we have become *one people*… New Zealanders!
And this truth is 100% at variance with the filthy and slanderous lies being peddled by the hate-filled and greed driven racist radicals who profit from Treaty separatism!
We are seeing here with Fletcher’s voluntarily reaching an accord with the Tribal hierarchy Te Kawerau a Maki… taking pains to respect the tribes sacred places, and providing them with allotments within the new ‘settlement’ mirrors very well with the intents of Wakefields ‘Art of colonisation’… and as the development will enhance the value of land in the area, so too will the tribe benefit from the capital gains that will accrue upon the properties they have.
There is of course one difficulty with ‘Tribalism’ when it comes to Property that tends to devalue land and restrict development… when Land titles are locked into some sort of Tribal commons as this can inhibit the ‘fungibility’ of the title… hindering investment… making it harder to leverage mortgages, etc… yet all these types of problems are not the fault of ‘Evil Colonial oppression’, but of how collective tribal land titles are not conducive to Free enterprise.
This is a whole story in itself that is not within the scope of this post… the important point is however how Fletcher Building have demonstrated a very respectful and beneficial attitude towards the Tribe…which is in fact well in keeping with the whole colonisation process of New Zealand… yet and these facts are at variance with the malicious claims being made by Protesting Radicals!
So lets list some Ihumatao facts.
1. The claim that the Ihumatao land was forcefully taken from the tribe during the Land confiscations after the wars of the 1860s *is False*!
There are maps available that clearly show the pastel of land is well outside the demarcation of confiscated land.
2. The Tribe signed a full and final Treaty settlement with Treaty negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson in 22 feb 2014
3. The Green and Labour party Ministers voted in support of this settlement in parliament.
4. Fletchers has set about to achieve their Building scheme fully compliant with the law… gaining all the necessary consents, and even went the extra mile in gaining the Blessing of the Tribal hierarchy… voluntarily Gifting Te Kawerau a Maki back an area that was of cultural significance to them, plus allotments within the development in which their people will be able to live!
Read/watch more here
All these things clearly establish the fact that Fletcher’s are fully lawful in their development ambitions on land for which they have indisputable legal title and thus proves that the claims being made by the Protesters are without any just foundation… and their actions are illegal trespass and occupation, and the New Zealand Police should evict them, and even prosecute those who refuse to respect Fletcher Building’s property rights.
The protesters are acting against their own Kaumatua! Read…. “..local kaumātua Te Warena Taua from Te Kawerau a Maki, who gave his blessing for the housing development to go forward, said Ms Newton and her cousins were disrespecting their elders by not moving on from the site.”
We have come to expect the Nut-bar and ignoramus Green party to be completely devoid of reason and so it is no surprise to see their MPs standing among the trespassing and deluded protesters. yet by failing to maintain her distance Jacinda Ardern has acted in an extremely foolish, dangerous, and illegal manor by putting her foot into this swap… suggesting that her government supports the protesters and that Flecthers must halt their development and sit across the table with these protesters whom have *zero factual or Legal basis* for claims upon that land and its use!
Act party’s David Seymour has publicly stated that Jacinda Ardern is encouraging illegal behaviour (here)
And Tribal leader David Rankin say he is going to lay a complaint against Ardern with the Police for overstepping her Executive authority as PM and interfering in a legal agreement…
“A senior member of the iwi, Mr Rankin said he would lodge a complaint with police that the Prime Minister used her position to interfere in a legal transaction and as a consequence would deprive the iwi of dozens of homes which Fletchers had contracted to provide to the mana whenua.”… read more here
She has even tried to prevent media asking about Ihumātao read here
The sane portions of the New Zealand population have had a guts full of the Treaty grievance Radicals and witnessing the fact that these radicals show contempt even for treaty settlements upon which the ink has barely dried… and that Jacinda Ardern herself thinks she can arbitrarily trample underfoot legal contracts show that she has little compunction against abusing her powers as PM.
Now I have little doubt that my blog post will have caused some people to reading this to wish a pox upon my house… those whom have been thoroughly brainwashed into the belief that the colonisation of New Zealand by the British was one sort of ‘mega Crime against humanity’, none the less it is my testimony that to believe such a thing is a vile injustice upon the many great and noble characters who are a part of New Zealand’s British heritage, whom are routinely defamed and vilanized.
I make no apology for standing up in their defense… and in fact calling for an end to this slander, and for New Zealanders to give these great pioneers the admiration and respect they deserve!
Current affairs at Ihumatao also demonstrate the historic fact that even when the best of intentions to make fair Land deals with tribes, that often troublemakers will still make counter-claims of injustice against people who have acted with honest intent and within the law. Historically speaking Many of the notable disputes over land can be understood by the fact that prior to the establishment of British law, surveying, and land titles, in Pre-colonial New Zealand ‘ownership of land’ was virtually only by ‘occupation’ and secured only by force of arms… and constantly violently contested in tribal wars.
It was Christianity and British Rule that eventually brought an end to this Brutal and endless struggle and established peace between the tribes.
Wakefield’s grave in Wellington should be a national monument!
Every school child should learn about the Military exploits of Gustavus Von Tempsky!
And yet we live in such times in which Celebrating our British heritage is almost illegal.
Just look at all the lies being told about Captain James Cook!
Look how the hate-filled racist radicals want to remove his monuments!
The Colonial history of New Zealand is fabulous!
Full of heroism, and toil, and enterprise that was the foundation for the world famous New Zealand character!
It was via breaking in this wilderness and transforming it into a modern enlightened society that our Mettle was forged!
This is the source of why our Tiny nation has always produced the greatest Troupes, and athletes… and world leaders in Civil reforms!
I was no accident that Everest was conquered by a New Zealander!
Yet I fear that our best is now behind us!
Our nation has been taken over by a bunch of whinging and emasculated and self immolating SJWs who have been taught to hate their own skins.
Why do you New Zealanders tolerate the historic vandalism of these ingrates… these dangerous and divisive radicals?
You are flushing both your Epic Historic cultural inheritance, and the Future well being of your descendants down the toilet!
Shame on you!

Government must uphold Treaty settlement, police must evict Ihumatao protesters
Joint statement from Fletcher Building and Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority & Settlement Trust.
With regards to the weekend’s ‘Reclamation Festival’ at Ihumatao, Fletcher Residential Limited, the Makaurau Marae Maori Trust Board and The Te Kawerau Iwi Settlement Trust & Tribal Authority, collectively the land owner of the Oruarangi Road SHA site and mana whenua of Ihumatao feel it is appropriate to remind the media that:
– The land at Oruarangi Road is a designated Special Housing Area, on privately-owned land that has been farmed extensively for the last 150 years. It is located between the existing village of Ihumatao, the edge of the Auckland Airport business precinct and the Otuataua Stonefields Reserve.
– Plans for the site have been developed in partnership with mana whenua in such a way that supports their sustainable kaitiakitanga of the surrounding area. This includes devoting a quarter of the site along the boundary of the Stonefields Reserve to protect and enhance connectivity, especially from the village. This piece of land within the development area will be the first time since the land confiscations of 1863 that land will be returned to mana whenua. The agreement to have this land returned to mana whenua was negotiated between Fletchers, Makaurau Marae Maori Trust and Te Kawerau Iwi Tribal Authority. Auckland City Council was consulted during this process.
– The protest group SOUL does not represent mana whenua of Ihumatao.
– Members of the United Confederation of Tribes along with members of the so called, “Kaitiaki village” do not represent mana whenua of Ihumatao.
– Pania Newton who previously led the SOUL protest group is not mana whenua nor has she been mandated to represent mana whenua of Ihumatao. Pania has wilfully misled SOUL followers and the general public regarding ‘land issues’ at Ihumatao.
– Pania, her supporters and SOUL followers continue to unlawfully occupy the privately owned site preventing the development of much needed new housing, which through the partnership between Fletcher and mandated mana whenua representation, will provide housing opportunities for descendants with whakapapa and strong cultural connections to return to the area.

This post is written to explain how certain facts around what is going on with respect to Global immigration. that have forced me to reconsider my own position with respect to the ideal of open boarders… which is a libertarian ideal consistent with the fundamental principles of freedom.
However there are Evil Powers at work that would seek to use the virtue and values of the Righteous… against them… against Freedom… and waking up to these realities and being brave enough to stand against them takes courage… courage enough to take an unpopular position that may draw ridicule from one’s ideological peers.
Some things in Politics are easy to distinguish as Black and White.
Somethings are very difficult to align with principles.
Moral Dilemmas exist.
And in dealing with Dilemma on the scale/ hierarchy of Values… it can be difficult to judge which ideals should be more firmly held against compromise than others.
Some Ideals are not attainable in the short term but must be slowly achieved… Goals that are walked towards… and may require a series of transitional steps/ reforms to achieve.
And I believe open boarders is one of these types of Ideal.
Achievable, but not immediately.
*And the how* this ideal might be achieved is very important… so to is the ‘ why’ and it is on these important questions that I believe as a libertarian I am justified in opposing the lefty Liberal Global agenda for immigration.
On both counts what is currently afoot is Machiavellian in the utmost extreme!
It is one of the chief goals of the Globalists to destabilize and Swamp Western civilization and culture… and to cause a state of global chaos from which they intend to establish a New and tyrannical Global Order.
As outrageous as this may sound, this fundamental stratagem is married to their ‘Climate change’ propaganda which is designed to place all industry and resources under the control of their one world government.
This is not wild conjecture on my part… the Socialist movements ambition to destroy capitalism and establish a one world government is something the Socialists openly admit.
Just by writing these things I will be targeted by the radical left as an Alt right racist conspiracy theorist who deserves to be silenced by force… and punished.
The Truth is I am not a racist… I am a supporter of helping genuine refugees and was very vocal about that during the Syrian crisis.
and you can read about that here…
WHAT CAN WE DO? SOCIALISM’S TUNGSTEN SHELL, AND THE REFUGEE CRISIS
GOOD EYE CLOSED. THE POWDER KEG. THE DEAD KEEP WASHING UP ON THE COASTS OF EUROPE.
GOD BLESS ANGELA MERKEL, AND THOSE GERMANS WHOM COURAGEOUSLY SUPPORT HER IN THESE TIMES WHICH TRY MEN’S SOULS.
People were dying by the thousands!
Such a crisis required immediate action.
Yet what we are seeing in Europe and on the US Border today are something completely different… Ill explain shortly.
I am a Libertarian… and so I am not ‘anti-Muslim’, in fact my neighbors are Muslims and we get along just fine!
I believe in equal rights and liberties for all.
*The Chaos of London, Paris, and poverty and homelessness of US Cities like LA, San Fansisco, etc are facts that indicate the insanity of allowing mass immigration… these cities cant even cope with the populations they already have!
What I have been very critical about has been how European Governments have failed to maintain law and order and allowed Lawless enclaves of hostile migrants to form, and also have failed to punish and deport Migrant criminals… rapists, etc… and this is because instead of openly admitting the problems and enforcing the law… instead they have sort to bury the truth and silence critics like Tommy Robinson
This law and order failure is a very strong and valid reason to oppose further Immigration!
The governments of Brittan and Europe cant even manage the state of things as they are!
They cant even keep their people safe as things stand… and yet anyone who speaks out about this is targeted for ‘hate speech’… labeled ‘Racist’… ‘Nationalist’… etc.
You can read about my Law and order concerns here….
It has been this monumental failure by European Liberal governments (like France’s Macron) to maintain law and order that we are witnessing the collapse of Western civilization.
This is not the Migrants fault… Blame ought to be squarely laid at the feet of the Inept Liberal governments.
Instead of maintaining Law and order by enforcing British Law and order upon Muslims whom have no intentions of embracing Freedom and equality, Liberals are using the ‘clash of cultures’ that inevitably ensues from Muslims extremists blatantly flouting religious liberty of others to gain powers to suppress Christianity, and any critisism of Mass migration… under the pretense of fighting ‘Islamiphobia’.
Yet there are even more antics of the Liberal agenda with respect to immigration that exposes the Liberal politicians of all western Nations, treachery to their own peoples, and ideological fanaticism to establishing the one world order by flooding their Nations with aliens and destroying their economies… softening them up to embracing the one world order which will come riding in on a white horse pretending to be their messiah!
Let me list 2 facts that have come to my attention that prove that the mass migration from the third world is not a ‘natural drift’ but an orchestrated implementation of a diabolical plan being executed by Westerners who *hate their own nations Cultures, Values, and beliefs* and who desire to Subjugate humanity to the One world socialist order.
This is no joke… this is their plan… and they are doing it under the grand delusion that all the chaos that will ensue can be justified because from it they expect a new world order to arise… and end to war… and an end to wealth disparities.
The spearhead of this UN agenda is their ‘Global Compact for Migration‘… recently signed up to by New Zealands most Unscrupulous politician… Deputy Prime minister Winston Peters… the man responsible for empowering The Woke Social Justice Warrior PM Jacinda Ardern.
Ardern used to be at the helm of the World Socialist Youth Movement, and today sits at the feet of former UN Bigwig Helen Clark.
Lets look at these Important facts now…
1. I have seen footage of Pamphlets that were produced by the British Government that are being distributed in France offering migrants there ‘Free homes’ ‘Welfare cheques’ etc etc if they can make it over the channel!
So far from the migration to Britten being ‘Organic’. we can see that it is part of an active socialist agenda!
No Libertarian can support such a program that is funded by Tax extortion!
No Libertarian can support any immigration that is driven by a desire for welfare!
So it should be obvious that what these Liberal globalists are doing is a million miles away from the Libertarian Ideal on migration and open borders.
2. We have seen that Western Liberal minions of the one world order have been financing and running ‘Migrant caravans’ whereby westerners have Bought Trucks, busses, etc and have traveled to
Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, etc and purposefully canvassed there their intentions of leading a Migrant caravan to the United states via Mexico.
These poor people are Political pawns and are being used by super Wealthy Liberal elites… esp George Soros… to attempt and cause civil unrest inside the US designed to undermine Donald Trumps administration.
69-year-old Willem Van Spronsen was shot dead by police after he threw Molotov cocktails at the ICE detention center and nearby cars on Saturday morning. (from here)
And recent events show this artificially created ‘immigration crisis’ by the Liberal adversaries of Trump is reacing a crisis point… including an Antifa Terrorist attacking an I.C.E Detention Facility holding illegal immigrants with fire bombs and armed with an AR15 after Pea Brain Leftist Radical Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez fed the flames of SJW minion outrage by falsely described conditions inside the facility as ‘like a concentration camp’ and that woman were being ‘forced to drink out of toilets’.
There is no mention of the roll the left are playing in the manufacture of this crisis… nor is there any admission on their part that *none of Trumps Border policies are novel*… detention facilities… deporting illegals and migrant criminals… not even his policy to build a wall on the Mexican boarder is novel!
Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and even Hillary Clinton *have all publicly said the same things* about ‘illegal immigration’… the only difference being that now Mass migration is being implemented from the UN as part of their grand scheme… and now their Nemesis and American Patriot Donald Trump stands in their way!
We have also seen the same sort of artificial escalation of the migrant crisis in Europe with Psychotic Liberals running people smuggling ships dumping thousands of migrants from the third world… Africa, etc, onto the shores of Europe.
See here: Female captain, 31, is arrested after rescue ship carrying 40 migrants RAMS Italian border force boat then steams towards shore to offload passengers
*Captain Carola Rackete plowed her aid boat into Italian border force vessel
*She then dropped off 40 migrants she had rescued on the island of Lampedusa
*She was arrested and condemned by Italy’s anti-migrant interior minister
None of these actions are acceptable to any thoughtful Libertarian!
These ‘migrants’ are literally dumped in Europe where many will sleep on the streets… even in winter… they are the victims of the lefty liberal NWO Socialist agenda.
We can see that the design is to overwhelm European societies, Destroy Western quality of life and usher in a socialist Tyranny!
Disarmament of the citizens is apace… so too is legislation that forbids Free speech critical of the Liberal agenda.
And there are more factors that need sober contemplation such as the Jihad large portions of the Islamic world hold against the Christian West.
All the Islamic Terrorism… factors that make it foolhardy in the current state of things to even contemplate open boarders!
For Me there are 1000 other things that must change *first* before the conditions are right for the realisation of the Libertarian ideal of open boarders.
‘Objective 17 of the Global Compact our government has agreed to ‘shape perceptions of migration’…. Read between the lines…
“We further commit to promote an open and fact-based public discourse on migration in partnership
with all parts of society, that generates a more realistic, humane and constructive perception of
In this regard, the following actions are instrumental:
a) Enact and implement legislation that penalizes hate crimes and aggravated hate crimes
targeting migrants and train law enforcement and other public officials to identify, prevent
and respond to such crimes
b) Punish the incitement to acts of violence generated by hate speech directed towards
migrants by holding perpetrators accountable in accordance with national legislation
c) Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including by
sensitizing media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in
ethical advertising, discouraging public funding or material support to media outlets that
So this is why people like Tommy Robinson has been framed by the British government and imprisoned… as an example to everyone else who would dare to express opinions deemed to be detrimental to the governments agenda to cast immigration in a positive light!
This is why the likes of Gay Man Milo Yiannopoulos who speaks out against the persecution of homosexuals in Islamic nations has been systematically silenced.
As a homosexual,He has expressed alarm that via the weakness of Liberal governments the tyrannical ideas of ‘sharia law’ Islamic extremism that includes the murder of Homosexuals is taking root in the so-called … ‘Free West’… as the Liberal governments take no pains to ensure migrants understand their ongoing residency is dependent upon them accepting the Rights and Liberties of Non-Muslims.
Instead of dictating such fundamental terms and conditions to the extremists, the liberals prefer to silence Milo!
This is also why Public speakers like Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern are also labeled ‘Alt Right extremists’ and attempts are made to prohibit these sorts of voices from gaining visas and platforms from which to speak freely of their views to what is going on.
What is transpiring with respect to the lefty liberal globalist agenda *is tantamount to Treason!*
The lefty Radicals and Politicians are betraying the trust they have from the people to look after their interests… we are seeing fanatical Politicians completely despising the will of the people and pushing headlong with their own agenda for one world government… and a classic example of that has been British PM Theresa Mays Failure on Brexit and the call by soo many Lefty Liberals *for a second vote*… why?….. because they dont like the result of the first vote… to leave!
Donald Trump was fairly elected by the American people yet that did not stop the Democrats trying to Frame him and have him impeached
These things show you what malevolence and lust for power the left harbours… these facts demonstrate the disdain these Liberals have for the democratic process when it goes against their Machiavellian ambitions!
These traitors,,, in every Western nation should be thrown in jail… or exiled for selling out their own nations to the UN Globalism.
These deadbeats are a waste of oxygen… not a useful productive skill between them to provide for their own sustenance… they are a legion of Bureaucratic parasites… the scourge of the Earth.
‘What is being described by lefty liberal Media as ‘the rise of the far Right nationalism’ is in fact the backlash of the people of every nation to the Madness of lefty Liberal Immigration policies and War on free speech.
Nothing Typifies this attitude better than how the British Government has unjustly treated/ jailed Tommy Robinson.
Though there are some undesirable elements, by far and large these movements are not at all ‘Far right’ in the ‘Fascist sense’ at all…Thankfully we can see some European nations are rebelling against UN Migration Policy and Populist Parties are gaining momentum.
Like Maga hat wearing American Trump supporters these movements are in fact patriotic anti-globalist anti-liberalism movements… Pro- Western Culture, values, and freedoms.
Yet to the Antifa supporting, woke, transgender, Social justice warrior mentality… Trump is Hitler.
Satan Laughing spreads his wings.
You can see how vital free speech is as a means by which the Lefts wicked plans can be exposed… and when you appreciate this you should understand just how determined the left are to shut down all critics… calling posts like this ‘Hate speech’…
So dont allow the left to distort the facts!
Dont drink their Cool aid!
Defend Free Speech!
Your Childrens Lives depend on it.
If the Leftist globalists win your children will never enjoy the quality of life and freedom you have taken for granted.
I cannot finnish this talk on Immigration without a final caveat: If all the Political meddlings of the UN globalist agenda were thwarted, the truth is that Immigration can be a great boon to maintain a vibrant economy migrants adding many benefits to their adopted nations.
Migrants can be hard working and industrious.
The essential component for any social interaction is the understanding of the basic principles that underpin peaceful coexistence between equal human beings.
All immigrants must maintain a minimum standard of behavior to retain their right to remain in their host nation.
There should be *no socialist welfare* incentives offered to migrants, yet any that are prepared to honour the Laws of the land, and live peacefully with the Citizens whom have generously opened the door to them, to better the quality of life for themselves and their children… to respect the rights and liberties, and Property of their neighbours… to practice their own religious beliefs without imposing them on others… these are that hall marks of civil human beings with whom peaceful coexistence is possible… to mutual benefit.
And it is with such civilised peoples that it is possible to allow free passage across boarders.
This is the Libertarian vision.
More from Tim….
‘Rapper 50 Cent has used his personal Instagram account to poke fun at a Mongrel Mob member’s face tattoo.
“What the f… is really going on man. I wonder why he can’t get a job?” the rapper wrote.
The image shared was a picture of Mongrel Mob member Puk Kireka, who has the word “Notorious” tattooed in red and black across the lower half of his face.
Kireka’s story was picked up by global media following an interview he did with the NZ Herald last week, where he admitted it would be tough to find employment with the tattoo. ‘
**** **** ****
Who thinks 50 Cent is wrong about his derision of how detrimental Puk Kireka’s Mob Tattoo will affect his future Job prospects????
Even Puk Kireka knows thats a simple fact.
The following blog post is written in disgust… not racism… though it does focus on what is happening to a particular racial demographic… the Maori people… *My People*…
My disgust centers upon the vile lies and socialist politics that subverts the truth and fails to correctly identify the *real causes* for why…despite decades of social engineering and Billions of Tax dollars of special treatment, Maori remain trapped in State dependence, and fill up New Zealand’s Jails.
Its about how our Government falsely and relentlessly attributes Maori Social failings to ‘Oppression and racism’ suffered from ‘Colonisation’ when in reality Maori are victims of the delusions that derive from this very Deceitful and toxic Socialist ideology.
One of my latest blog posts here poured scorn on a recently completed and heavily funded Government inquiry into the question of Maori Criminality that is starkly out of all proportion to their number comparative to all other racial demographics, and the resultant report called ‘‘He Waka Roimata or A Vessel of Tears’ recently tabled for the government to consider.
This report is supposed to give MPs guidance and insights into the root causes of why Maori have such disastrous social statistics. esp in relation to crime and Jail.
The release of this report, and its utterly contemptible conclusions are what have spurred me to blogging on this Current affair, as I utterly reject its main premises as not merely missing the mark by a thousand miles, but because it is a work of Evil political agenda driven propaganda… not an objective inquiry leading to sound conclusions… and it is outrageous that this fraudulent report is going to be used as a guide to Future Government policy!
We can see that the result will be precisely what Socialists intended to do all along *even before the inquiry was undertaken*… like so many of the farcical processes acted out for the sake of pulling the wool over the eyes of the public before Socialist enact their heavy handed and expensive agendas.
Such Inquiries pretend to be ‘sound governance practice’… ‘due diligence’ feigning ‘due process’… with copious helpings of ‘Public consultation’… garnering ‘expert opinion’… etc etc … when we know the result has been pre-determined and will entail Hundreds of Millions of Taxpayer dollars more being spent expanding State interventions and apartheid politics… yet because all this Nonsense does not correctly identify the root causes of Maori criminality and poverty, it is with mathematical certainty doomed to failure just as all the Socialist Apartheid politics of the last 50 years has proven to be.
They are not only continuing to Flog this dead horse… continuing with political ideas that are proven failures, these Socialist Politicians are doing what they always do… *Enabling* and *perpetuating* the misery!
*And this Angers me!* *This incompetence* and dishonesty Disgusts me!
Yet of course because Nanny State Socialists are ‘one trick ponies’… they dont have any other Game to play…
Unfortunately the entire country must pay a heavy price for their ongoing incompetence and delusions… no one paying a higher price than Maori themselves who have been indoctrinated with these toxic lies that corrode their ability to appreciate the fundamental causes of their own predicament.
The solution to the Maori predicament is not more Nanny statism… but less…. and more self responsibility.
The solution to the Maori predicament is not more Apartheid politics and blame… but less… and more self responsibility.
Ie If Maori are ever going to climb out of the gutter it will be *when they do it for themselves* by embracing the ethics of *Self responsibility*
This is the truth that is missing from the report ‘He Waka Roimata or A Vessel of Tears’ that instead tries to blame ‘White Colonialism’for Maori’s plight rather than their own failure to embrace Ethics and values necessary to prosper… and stay out of prison.
The Fundamental truth that Current Socialist Apartheid politics and Welfare dependence are 100 times more destructive to Maori individuals well being than the so-called ‘culture shock’ of 19 century English Colonisation can be proven at all points if only people will open their eyes and ears… and esp their minds to considering *alternative perspectives* to the ones that they have been spoon fed by Socialist politicians and their ‘Education system’.
Today’s blog will consider just one aspect of detrimental choices and behaviour that makes life harder for those people who make this choice… just one reason why many Maori will find themselves welfare dependent… yet it has little to do with their race.
Upon reading the following only the belligerent minded will not already appreciate what I am about to say as being so basic and irrefutable that it barely requires being stated, yet I must do so to demonstrate the dynamics of Falsely labeling *personal individual choices* as ‘systemic racism’.
Failure to Call out Maori for their own poor choices, and instead blaming the Pakeha for their woes virtually guarantees succeeding generations of Maori will continue to wallow in the mire… and continue to cultivate Race hatred for their Pakeha neighbours!
And from hatred comes violence and crime.
So lets talk about the vital issues of Self responsibility, and personal choices… issues Socialists avoid like the plague in favour of an ideology of *Blaming others* .
Socialism thrives on victimism… they envisage an endless struggle between Oppressor and the oppressed.
They Never associate personal outcomes with personal choices and responsibility.
Instead they seek to circumvent personal responsibility via Nanny State interventions, Prohibitions, and compulsions.
Life is Tough!
And yet Good Parents attempt to raise their children to take responsibility for their own actions.
Yet ‘Adulting’ can be very difficult… especially when it comes to self discipline and voluntarily obeying and maintaining morals and values you know in the long term to be wise and beneficial… all the while resisting urges and temptations to indulge in vice, or ‘short cuts’… for immediate short term benefit and gratification… that are gained at the expense of others… and ultimately… ourselves.
There will always be a personal price to pay for Bad choices!
Call it Karma… reaping what you sow…. etc.
Though this is tuff… nonetheless these truths are *vital* for every individual to apprehend… irrespective of Race.
Despite what the Morally bankrupt Academics of our day preach in our institutions of learning about ‘cultural relativism’… in truth the same essential morals, values, and principles apply equally to all… and your success or failure as an individual depends upon how well you grasp these essential truths… and how resolved you are to following Virtue as your guide…and in maintaining them in your personal walk.
I want to apply this theme to the story at the top of this post… 50cent and the Mobster Puk Kireka’s Heavy Gang Facial tattoo…and how this demonstrates the Truth about a lack in self responsibility as being the Primary source of the Maori peoples sorry social conditions… not Colonisation.
50 cent derided Puk because his personal choice to get that tattoo is guaranteed to make his life harder ‘in the big wide world’… esp with respect to future employment… and employment is one of the *most essential factors* in being self reliant and independent human being!
The ability to Earn an honest dollar.
So unless you are Filthy Rich and dont need a Job, obviously getting that sort of Tattoo may therefore be considered to be *a bad personal choice* because is will undoubtedly negatively impact on that persons ability to uprightly take care of themselves.
It is a Bad choice not restricted to Maori, but by people of all races, and yet it is a Bad personal choice made to a much higher degree by young Maori Men… usually to impress their Peers.. or to serve as a type of ‘War paint’… that this person is ‘Staunch’… ‘Bad ass’… etc to intimidate others or cause others to be wary of messing with them… I am of course taking about Tattoos… esp Face, neck, lower arms and hand tattoos that are impossible/ difficult to conceal.
And it is the higher prevalence of such tattoos among Maori men that is but one factor that works to lower Maori Social statistical outcomes… not colonisation.
I will discuss Traditional ‘Moko’ in the postscript.
Many of these Tattoos are purposefully ‘aggressive’, most often of very poor quality, and often associated with fringe subcultures,Gangs, and Jail.
I appreciate that when you are raised in a poor community (not a personal choice children make), and immersed in Gang culture (which is often family related, or Neighborhood related, yet ultimately still a life style choice to participate in) these Tattoos are considered to be ‘positive goods’… emblems of belonging… have urban warfare value… even value when it comes to ‘Hooking up’.
This is what life appears to be ‘all about’ to young people immersed in it, yet they are setting themselves up for a very hard lesson in life that the Greater world… the world in which better quality of life exists, will not be at all impressed.
This whole ‘Culture’ is a study in personal ethics and choices that too easily is talked about by socialists who make excuses for Bad personal choices by their pet demographics they instead frame as ‘helpless victims’ of ‘social failings’ and oppression rather than individual choices.
If only More Youth would have the wisdom and foresight to appreciate how bad a decision to get a facial tattoo can be… unfortunately many youth dont get good parenting or mentor-ship that sets an example worthy to be emulated… unfortunately Young Maori men take their roll models from older siblings, Uncles, etc… Gang Members… heavily tattooed… Hard Drinkers… drug users… and quick to use their fists if they feel ‘disrespected’.
Thus the older generation of Maori have to accept that their own life choices play a very strong part in the choices their youth will make… for better or ill.
What sort of examples did Puk’s Whanau set for him?
None of this has anything to do with ‘Colonisation’ or Pakeha oppression.
It has everything to do with a culture of poor judgement, poor ethics, poor values, and poor exemplars.
Maori have enjoyed decades of Political and legal favoritism and yet Socialists never cease to insist Maori are oppressed.
In reality Maori criminality is a testament to Maori failure to honour the Treaty!
That Racism has little to do with this particular issue can be seen with the well known case of ‘Devast8’… White boy Mark Cropp.
“A man with ‘Devast8’ tattooed across his face, who last year opened up about his job struggles as he tried to turn his life around, is back before the courts.”
The fact is that these types of Tattoos carry definite social stigma and are justly associated with Anti-social behavior, and crime.
And this Sigma has nothing to do with race.. and nothing to do with ‘Bigotry’… A White person with a Facial ‘White Power’ tattoo with find his lot in life just as difficult as any Maori with ‘Black Power’
Its a simple fact that Employers, Landlords will with good reason think twice about employing or renting to a person with heavy tattoos
That this trait is very predominant among young Maori… ie that many Maori men have heavy Facial tattoos,Hands, Neck… and also carry high statistical gang affiliations is why their demographic is proportionally heavily affected, yet in reality New Zealanders are collectively a heavily Tattooed People… New Zealand has a high statistical Tattoo count from all ethnic backgrounds… yet not so much on the face.
The Internet is full of accounts of Non Maori… White Individuals who have a harder time in life because of their facial tattoos.
Its an internationally recognised problem for individuals.
Australian Craig Ginter
Read : ‘Man denied entry into Winnipeg bar because of face tattoos likely not protected by law’
Many people will not even bother to read this post simply because the facts are so obvious!
That the serious negative consequences result from this sort of personal behavior by young people has nothing to do with systemic racism, and everything to do with having made very bad choices that will impact negatively upon your future is something so Obvious that many people will wonder why I bothered to write this?
As I have explained in the very first paragraph… This post is about exposing the Lies of socialism that try and blame ‘Colonialism and White Prejudices’ for the poor social conditions/ High Criminality of Maori, and in the process deny the fact that the *real causes* are the lack of Self responsibility for their personal choices… and that blaming Colonisation and White racism is a disgusting lie for political ends, that not only slanders Pakeha, but attempts to justify *Racist politics* extorting hundreds of millions of dollars all the while failing to address the real Moral crisis that is impoverishing Maori and ensnaring them in Socialist dependency.
Let me finish by saying most of the insights on the importance of personal ethics I have expressed are not things I have learned in school but truths I have lived.
I spent my youth as part of the Fringe subculture in rebellion to ‘conservative society’, in which tattoos were the norm, and in which many foolish values are embraced as being ‘Cool’ ‘Staunch’.
I have many Tattoos. Tattoos I wish I did not have, yet fortunately they are not on my Face, Hands, Neck, or lower arms.
I like Tattoos, yet for religious reasons I regret mine, and discourage anyone from getting them… and if they do implore they do so on discrete areas of the body that can be covered at times of Work, Job interviews, etc… because for most professional interactions with wider society having overt tattoos will be a disadvantage.
It is pointless for the Tattoo community to act as if they are somehow being ‘oppressed’ by ‘bigoted’ outsiders for ‘Judging them’ because of their Tattoos when its a patent fact that Tattoos and criminality… Tattoos and Gangs…, etc are not mythical associations but factual… and that not only are a large percentage of tattoos purposefully intended to send a message of ‘Baddassness’ but that even the Tattooed community judge each other by their tattoos… eg a Tattooed Maori is highly likely to immediately hate a Pakeha with a white power Tattoo… and so when you analyse all this you can easily see that deriving *First impressions about a persons character* from their Tattoos is a universal habit founded upon some very valid associations.
Yet sometimes these first impressions can be wrong… and of course there are many Great people with Facial Tattoos.
People can change… Criminals can reform… First appearances can be very deceiving… People do form judgments by first appearances and may will not bother to investigate further whether or not their first impressions were correct.
It has just been reported that Puk Kireka actually wants to change his ways and is seeking donations from the public to fund his education.
Read ‘Tattooed Mongrel Mob member mocked by 50 Cent seeks donations to fund education.’
“A Givealittle page, started by Kireka’s partner Waiora Tareha, is now seeking donations from the public to help the gang member turn his life around.
Tareha said the page was an attempt to get Kireka a helping hand from others to kickstart a new, positive life.”
I wish Puk Kireka every success in his endevour to step up and create a better life for himself!
It will be very hard with that Heavy Facial Tattoo… Yet not impossible… He will have to find the inner strength to persevere.
Maybe getting it removed would be in his own best interest… these are the sorts of tuff choices he must make for his own future.
I hope he also mentors his younger Whanau into not making the same detrimental life choices that he himself made… in this way he can help them to have a better life… a smoother path… Break out of Poverty and crime… and is not this what we all want for Maori?
They must turn their backs on the lies of Socialism and race hate against the Pakeha… turn away from blaming Colonisation which has brought 1000 times more benefits and opportunities to these shores than the socialist claims of the evils of ‘Land alienation and loss of culture’.
In Freedom and equality before the Law Maori may embrace *all the positive aspects of their Cultural inheritance* while also embracing the advantages of Western Science, technology, and life affirming Values and ethics that are essential for all human beings to escape socialist dependence on the State and prosper by their own efforts.
I wrote this ‘Pamphlet’ ‘Whistle while you Work‘ on work ethics and work culture to help individuals seeking to better themselves via personal effort and self responsibility… Please share it with Job seekers and anyone who is keen to make a better life for themselves… they have the power!
Stop with the self-defeating Victimism and Blame!
There are Political injustices in life, and they can and do make life harder… and as a Libertarian I busy myself exposing them and calling for reforms, yet this blog post has focused on merely *one example* of a *personal choice* that has heavy consequences for individuals irrespective of their race… Yet of course there are countless other matters of personal choice, values, and personal responsibility that when considered in totality are sufficient to explain why some people wallow in poverty, commit crimes, and never rise to their full potential… while others rise above the hurdles and succeed… in spite of all the Political BS.
Be like them!
Without spending too much time talking about the ‘Old World’ tradition of Moko (of which I make no claims of expertise) I just want to make a few passing points.
Firstly I want to say their is a world of difference between ‘Tribal art’ and Gang tattoos.
I also want to point out that Facial Moko even back in Pre-Colonial times was not universal, and that the notion that any contemporary Maori thinking that by getting a Facial Moko today somehow makes them ‘A greater Maori’ or somehow symbolises them as being ‘more passionate’ about Old world Maori culture… I cant help but to consider such motives as being Poor judgement
and actually perpetrating a type of cultural fraud.
Tattoos in Old times may have been associated with high Mana, and imbued *ferocity* to a Warriors presence in war (and on the street… and in jails… all reason why Modern Gangs love Facial Tattoos)… yet that same ferocity will work to defeat you in times of Peace… outside Gang culture…in the modern world where prosperity and Freedom from Crime and jail is to be found… so a person must weigh up the positive personal consequences they perceive of Getting a facial tattoo that they like, from any negative social costs such a Tattoo may carry in affecting their ability to prosper… and this is a personal choice… not a matter of prejudice…
More from Tim…
Socialism is built upon a mountain of lies that must be maintained at all cost lest the light of truth should penetrate the fog and expose the rot and the deception.
Lies are told by those who seek advantage that they would never receive should the truth be admitted, and any such advantages gained by such dishonesty are always at the expense of others.
Yet Lies also bring curses upon those who make deals with the Devil, and though it may appear for a season to be profitable… ultimately Frauds have a habit of bringing pain and destruction… hence the old adage ‘Cheats never prosper’.
One of the most toxic Political Deceptions that is rigorously maintained by Socialists in New Zealand and continuously served up to the New Zealand public is the ‘Defeatist Entrapment’ of the Maori people as being the eternal victims of White Rapine, and Oppression.
The Great Evil of ‘Colonisation’.
This Blatant lie is not only used to claim that because Maori are said to be the victims of Racism, that they are owed Welfare….’restorative justice’… compensation…. etc… ie Justify all the socialist welfare programs, special Legislation, and treaty settlements, etc but also to absolve Maori from taking any responsibility for their own shocking Social metrics.
Its the white mans Fault Maori Men Drink and Beat their woman and children.
Its the white mans Fault Maori Woman are Obese.
Its the white mans fault Maori youth are unemployed and belong to Gangs.
Its the White man’s Fault that Maori Commit violent crimes and fill our jails to overflowing!
This is precisely the sort of vile Political ideology that has just been served up under a report ‘He Waka Roimata or A Vessel of Tears’ that pretends to be ‘an inquiry’ when in reality its just a Partisan Ideological media release designed to dupe the public into accepting Left wing political agenda and program.
They claim this is *systemic oppression*.
“The report was produced by the Government-appointed Te Uepū pai i te Ora – Safe and Effective Justice Advisory Group after more than 220 public meetings nationwide.”
Wow! Sounds like this ‘report’ is based upon a substantial investigation! yet when the resulting conclusions and recommended actions were already known *before the inquiry*… that is not an inquiry!
This whole process was nothing more than a huge Junket at the tax payers expense!
That’s 220 taxpayer funded meetings across the Nation where Socialist ideologues got paid to sit around and have Lunch, and talk *about their own opinions*… peddle their own wares… Paddle their own waka!
(Photos taken from an ‘Action Station’ PDF dated aprox 3-10-18)
The above ‘Action Station’ ‘research report’ encapsulates the ideology that underpins ”He Waka Roimata or A Vessel of Tears’.
The date of this ‘research report’ dovetails perfectly with the ‘Vessel of tears’ program, and you get a feel for the way this whole process was undertaken… and see that it was far from impartial and objective … ” We Honour your Korero, We honour your whanau, and we stand in solidarity with you..”
We can be certain that at no point did the truth about why there are so many Maori in Jail get aired…. Ie That Maori are failing to take responsibility for their own behavior… their own lack of personal ethics… their own sloth, and lack of civil values… ie that the lies of Socialism are failing them… no…. no such Truth Bombs made it into this Left wing propaganda piece… Truth Bombs that would blow the entire left wing Political system out of the water and free Maori from the Delusions that all their misery is the white mans fault!
Even the name of the report ‘Vessel of Tears’…. is nauseating! (like Ardern’s ‘Well being Budget’)… who the hell dreams up these pompous propaganda names … how ‘basic’ do these Charlatans think the average New Zealander is?
They seriously believe such weasel words make the lies they are selling more palatable to the masses?
I shudder to contemplate they may be right!
As a the son of a failed marriage between my Violent and Alcoholic Maori Father and a Pakeha Mother who was the victim of his abuse, My Childhood was a combination of Living with my Pakeha Grandparents, Times lived with my Solo Mum on the DPB, and times lived with a violent Stepfather when my mother re-married, My childhood was less than Ideal, and I would leave home by the age of 15… more on my story here… and I came very close to becoming another Maori Social statistic that could have easily been written off as ‘just another victim of Colonization’ yet thankfully my Journey through the School of hard knocks taught me some priceless life lessons… that I could not blame my ruff childhood for my lot in life, but in fact that I myself, and the choices I made were (and are) chiefly responsible for how my life pans out… and it is this realisation… that I am *not a victim* of anything other than my own foolish ideas and values… that in reality… and irrespective of my dysfunctional upbringing… I am responsible for how successful my life will be … this Truth is *self empowering*… and I became a Libertarian… and an outspoken Critic of Socialism for the Toxic Racism and defeatism and entrapment in perpetual victim-ism that it entails.
I have spent nearly two decades speaking out against the Lies of the racist radicals and their fraudulent claims of the Colonial oppression of Maori, and the evils of Maori dependence upon Socialist Welfare.
Waitangi Treaty Separatism, and all the socialist lies that it is Built upon is *Bare-faced Racist Politics* *Vile Fraudulent Revisionist History*… Yet to deny these Truth Bombs Socialists Like Justice Minister Andrew Little has the audacity to claim that Political pamphlets that speak out against his party’s Racist agenda and call for Equality before the law “as being Hate speech”… here… Anti-Māori pamphlet shows gaps in hate speech law: Andrew Little calls for action
Little repairing to the pseudo history of left wing accademics that infest of education system when he said… “It peddles myths about pre-European Maori society that historical scholarship does not bear out. If it demonstrates anything, it is that the author of it is an ignorant fool.”
So that is how Rigged this game is!
Socialists have positioned themselves at every station…
The education system.
Fighting the socialist racist politics of the Leftist Government, and calling for Equality before the law is fed to the New Zealand Public by our Left wing infested Media *as being racist*, and as such the government wants to make such Political opinion *illegal* to speak about in public.
Yes Socialism seeks to use Political power and the law silence it’s critics!
Socialism uses political power and the law to re-write history!
And they want New Zealanders to think of those who call them out on their racism as being ‘Alt Right’ ‘White supremacists’ ‘ etc’.
So of course Socialists *cant stand Maori like myself* who deny We are victims of Colonisation… and who call for an end to treaty separatism and Apartheid politics!
An example of this hatred socialists have for people like myself can be seen in how triggered US democrats get when Black Woman Candice Owens destroys their claims of ‘White privilege’.
They likewise cant stand Gay man Milo yiannopoulis because he refuses to join the Socialist ranks of Homosexuals raging against Christianity. (think Israel Falou)
Likewise any woman who rejects militant left wing feminism and their blatant Man-hating sexism under the guise of ‘fighting the Patriarchy’.
In all these spheres it is not Equality before the Law that is the ideal of left wing ‘Identity politics’… but legalised Discrimination against whites… against holding Christian ideals and values… against Men, etc.
Again who is it that the Socialists in government, in the media, the Liberals running internet Social networks want to de-platform… want to silence?
Who is it the accuse of being ‘Hate speakers’ and try to associate with the ‘Alt right’… or accuse of ‘fake news’?
Those outspoken individuals whose Truth Bombs decimate left wing delusions, and expose their corruption and lies!
These are the speakers and activists Left wing Politicians like Auckland mayor Phil Goff try to prevent from getting Visas, or having venues to share their ideas to the voting public.
its left wing politicians like Goff who want to keep the public ignorant… and voting left!
Getting back to my original topic about the Lies that underpin the Racist Socialist agenda and their ideological excuse that Rampant Maori Criminality may be blamed on ‘Colonisation’, let me remind people of what New Zealand first MP and Minister of Regional Economic Development Shane Jones recently said….
Shane Jones, fresh off rescuing a woman from an alleged brutal domestic assault, has called on Māori to stop blaming colonialism for their woes.
Jones and his wife Dot were driving in Wellington on Saturday when they noticed a “fracas” in the car behind them….
The attacker, Jones said, was a young Māori man.
“I say to our Maori people – this sort of carry-on, don’t go blaming colonialism; don’t join the chorus of idiocy I’m seeing on the East Coast where the artists don’t want Captain Cook celebrated because they’re responsible for family violence on the East Coast. That’s pathetic. I hate that soup of excuses.”
Author of ‘Once were Warriors’ Allan Duff also copped a lot of hate from Maori for challenging their Culture of Blame and perpetual victimism.
The Movie was an indictment against the attitudes… and ‘culture of violence’ prevalent within Maoridom and it exposed the sort of mentality that causes Maori people to end up in prison… Nothing to do with ‘white men’s oppression’ and everything to do with the lack of Values.
In The sequel ‘What becomes of the broken Hearted’ Jake the Muss meets some Maori Guys who were using their time and talents much more constructively, and Jake tries to re-invent himself… to become a better man… and that folks… is the road to redemption!
Once were Warriors cut very close to the bone for many Maori because of how it reflected their reality.
Like my own Father… White people were not to blame for his own lack of self control… for the bullshit running around in his head… for his violence and his drinking!
He was fully responsible for that!
It is the height of dishonesty for Socialist politicians to try and deny these most basic Moral truths!
The Real ‘Vessel of Tears’ is the fact that ongoing blame of Colonisation will never rescue Maori from the mire!
That will never come via Socialst lies and delusions.
It will only come the Day the Maori People shrug off the lies of socialist victimism, and racist blame, and determine to escape Socialist welfare dependency by taking ownership for their criminality and thereby determining to *Morally change* and to embrace *Values* that embody the virtues of Hard work, forsaking vice, forsaking violence, forsaking crime, forsaking Race hatred against Pakeha, forsaking the toxic lies sewn by socialists for political gain … that they are the victims of their Pakeha neighbours greed.
Throwing Off all that Dead weight and facing the future as an opportunity to prosper … by their own efforts… In Freedom…. under equality.
None of this entails an abandonment or lessening of their own Culture or identity.
This is pure empowerment… the very opposite of socialist victimism and dependence.
And New Zealanders must fight against Left wing attempts to outlaw Political criticism and alternative opinions!
Free Speech, and Freedom to assemble and hear Critics of the Government is essential for a democracy to remain Free.
Websites, Social media platforms, etc must remain accessible to all so that the people are truly informed at elections rather than just spoon fed left wing lies.
As Jesus Christ said “And ye shall know the truth, and the Truth shall make you free”.
One Law change that could significantly Help Maori would be to End cannabis prohibition!
Its a Bad/ unjust law, and while it has zero to do with racism, Maori are disproportionately affected by it.
So vote to end Prohibition in the coming referendum.
PS… Neither has it only been the Labour Party that has practiced this apartheid politics… For Decades The National Party has also facilitated it, and gotten into bed with Racist radicals of the Maori Party, etc… New Zelanders need to find a Political party dedicated to ending Treaty separatism and abolishing the Maori Seats in parliament… as a non-negotiable bottom line (never trust Winston Peters! Sadly for all his claims to want to end the ‘Brown mail’…the man speaks with forked tongue)
Join Hobson’s pledge here
