Shannen Coffin of the National Review Online Spews Racist Bile Using the Akaka Bill to Do So

In a post made on December 14, 2009 Shannen Coffin posted a diatribe at the National Review Online website called, “On the Akaka Bill:”

Seen here

An excerpt:

When Obama was elected, I lamented that, among other things, we’d see enactment of legislation that President Bush successfully thwarted in a number of areas, like D.C. voting representation in Congress and separatist racial government in Hawaii.

Except the Hawaiian Kingdom has always been inclusive of other races, ethnicities, and national origin.

In fact my maternal grandfather is Portuguese in ethnicity yet Hawaiian by nationality. Same for my paternal and maternal Chinese grandfathers. They were Chinese by race and ethnicity. Hawaiian by nationality.

Yet some people like Shannon Coffin feel compelled to write racist things about Hawaiians based on our national origin using the Akaka Bill to do so.

Of course that is not the only thing that is troubling.

The Hawaiian Kingdom has been in existence since about 1810:

It was never dissolved.

I state this as a descendant.

Some of these people who write about the Akaka Bill truly are nasty and are nasty while using the Akaka Bill to be nasty to and about Hawaiians.

More about the Akaka Bill later.

P.S. We are not going anywhere.
