Akaka Bill: John Rossomando, www.NewsMax.com, and the Akaka Bill

Here is another racist statement about Hawaiians being made by someone at the www.NewsMax.com website:

“It establishes separate rights and separate governance solely based on race.”

McClintock rejects supporters’ claims Native Hawaiians need their own separate government in compensation for the 1893 overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy by American businessmen and the subsequent 1898 annexation of the islands.

He said the merit for this argument disappeared in 1959 when Native Hawaiians joined their Anglo and Asian-American neighbors in voting for statehood by a 17-1 margin.

The bill would create what McClintock sees as a “separatist government quite separate from the government of the United States within the boundaries of the United States.”

This is another example of some people using the Akaka Bill to single out and target Hawaiians based on their national origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina, and smearing the Hawaiian people.

Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina also known as the Hawaiian Kingdom was created in 1810. It was never dissolved yet some people like to lie about Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina and its people.

To single out and target any group of people based on their national origin is racism. This should NEVER be tolerated.

Unfortunately this is another example of how some people are using the Akaka Bill as a tool to state racist things about Hawaiians based on their national origin and smearing Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina in the process.

Hopefully though their reasons for stalling the Akaka Bill twice before in the last 10 years differ from Hawaiians’ the Republican party can and should put an end to the Akaka Bill once and for all.

By doing so these people would stop using the Akaka Bill to make racist statements about Hawaiians based on their national origin, Ko Hawai’i Pae Aina.
