To date, the media has swamped us with articles about the countless demands and accusations from the Maori Sovereignty Movement. The non-Maori component of the population have tended to remain silent through fear of being branded racist. Even those who call for equality have been branded as racist by the Maori trolls because equality and their agenda are incompatible. They subdue their critics by calling them ‘Racist’.
Rawiri Waititi and Debbie Ngarewa-Packer pulled this stunt in Parliament last week in an attempt to intimidate opponents to the He Puapua strategy, and to try and stifle debate on the issue.
They enjoy the publicity and like to portray the image of being the victims.
My stance is for true equality for all people, regardless of race, colour or creed.
So, go ahead and call me racist, the Maori activists are the only ones who believe it.
There are truths that need to be spoken – and I will speak them.
I am now aged in my seventies. My friendships with Maori people were formed in my childhood, when relations between Maori and Pakeha were amicable. Inter-marriage between these two races enlarged the cohort who choose to live and let live, to respect and value each other. It was an age of give and take. Pakeha in those days, accepted the idea of a Department of Maori Affairs, plus the extras that were dispensed to give Maoris a hand-up.
It was then seen as a ‘Hand-Up’ and not a ‘Hand-Out”. It was accepted as the norm and was not resented by Pakehas.
Within many of our extended families, as a result of inter-racial marriage, there are people of mixed race.
All these diverse members are our family/whanau and are dear to us. We reject anything that seeks to racially polarise or politically divide us, or would cause any weakening of the bonds of loyalty and friendship.
Over the years, there has been a voluntary exchange of culture, along with an expansion of our Maori vocabularies, this was incidental learning and not compulsory. The cultural exchange was adopted with goodwill and not because of any form of coercion. It was a natural transition, a process of give and take and goodwill.
Now the violin music has stopped.
Today, that atmosphere of goodwill has been threatened by a minority sector of the Maori population. They are the tribal elite, who are prepared to sacrifice the once stable race-relations for the personal rewards gained from administering the financial estates of their tribe, and also for what they can yet get their hands on.
These tribal leaders are the ones at the head of the queue for the lion’s share of any benefits.
They seek to turbo-charge the rate of transition by forcing change, rather than to allow a natural rate of co-operative evolution to produce harmonious outcomes.
Those of mixed-race marriages, must feel insecure when they contemplate the eventual outcomes from the escalation of racial tension in this country. They are like opossums caught in the headlights, unsure of which way to jump, but staying in the middle of the road will still make them casualties, which-ever way they jump.
The only safe place for them is on the side of the road, well out of the growing conflict. They should not overtly or covertly give support to anything that exacerbates the unsavoury situation that has developed. They need to resist intimidation from the feudal elements within their iwi, and subtly distance themselves from the radicals.
For those who are born into the non-Maori component of the population, but who have elected to join the woke-folk, and take the side of the Maori radicals. We will remember who you are. If you think that you will be accorded concessions in a society where Maori hold a disproportionate amount of power in Government and on Councils, then you are naïve, and you need to look back over history to see how Maori allegiances were fickle arrangements, that changed direction like the wind. You can be regarded as ‘Useful Idiots’, or Quislings, tools for the radicals’ cause.
For those non-Maori, who know where they stand, and what they face; realise that your failure to use the power of your vote to remove those who would foist this state of affairs upon us, has allowed democracy to be eroded.
Specifically, I refer to the event where, through the efforts of Nanaia Mahuta assisted by the Ardern Government, the right to hold referenda to determine the degree of support, or opposition, for Maori Wards on Councils, has taken away a legitimate, legal, democratic tool. If you cannot see that this is a direct attack upon Democracy, (that is the back-bone of peace in many countries), then it is time you opened your eyes.
When Maori radicals can impose an illegal road-block upon the public, and the Police legitimise it; and when the Government does not lift a finger, then you must realise that Rangatiratanga has replaced democracy.
It is not coming, IT HAS ARRIVED, and is being facilitated by the Ardern Government as we speak, as part of the
He Puapua campaign. The connivance of the police with the government has destroyed their reputation for impartiality.
This transition has happened because we have allowed it to happen by remaining silent and doing nothing.
Garrick Tremain’s latest cartoon  sums this up exactly, where the advisor tells the Prime Minister that “If we keep sneaking through our separatist agenda, one side will really take umbrage”, and Jacinda replies, “But they will just mutter among themselves . . . . Upset the other side and they’ll take to the streets”.
The same atmosphere existed prior to World War Two, when Adolf Hitler and his bunch of thugs gained power in Germany. They boldly stole ground bit by bit, and when there was no opposition they stole some more until they held total power. This same tactic is being employed by the Maori Sovereignty Movement and the Ardern Government today.
It has been said, “the only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing”. 
I am a 72 year old, who has lived a life totally away from politics until I acknowledged what is happening under our noses. I now join with like-minded citizens to raise awareness and opposition to the caustic agenda that eats away at the goodwill between races, that was once a source of pride to all Kiwis. If I can be a ‘thorn in the side’ or a ‘stone in the shoe’ to those who seek easy victory in their quest for a disproportionate share of power, then I shall.
In order to halt the destructive agenda of Maori radicals, there has to be tangible PUBLIC opposition.
Since the Ardern government was not removed from power in the last election, because Labour had concealed the He Puapua agenda that they now pursue, the populace NOW need to convey their displeasure.
This government must be made aware that race-based legislation is not palatable to the 85% non-Maori population and their re-election is not assured.
“How do we manifest this displeasure?” you ask.
Ideas that come to mind are: protests and spontaneous actions that convey our rejection of any attempt to impose any form of race-based legislation upon the general public. Maori use hikoi and the occupation of council chambers (Opotiki), or occupation of disputed land (Ihumatao) to make their displeasure known. There is plenty of noise and fanfare and what is good for them is good for us.
Attempts to impose Maori Tikanga upon us should be greeted with contempt.
Such impositions are racist and show disrespect for other cultures. Maori culture in turn, will earn our disrespect.
We can manifest our contempt for these things with walk-outs or stamping.
I have written this article to convey to the Ardern Government and the Maori radicals that we will not be intimidated, and that we ARE the majority. In other words, they are on notice that we have had enough of the ridiculous claims and selfish grasping for a disproportionate amount of power and resources that belong to all citizens. We also reject the imposition of Maori culture and Tikanga upon us.
I also address those members of the public, both Maori and non-Maori, who are concerned, but do not know how to stop this political steam-roller. The message has to be sent – STOP! ENOUGH! It will not stop unless the message is heard.
It is up to all who want a democratic country for their children, with rights guaranteed regardless of race, colour or creed, to unite to stop the causes of racial hate in our precious homeland.
That cause is Maori dominance over our society.
Non-Maori are here – we are not leaving – and we too are Tangata Whenua – with rights – get used to it!
Non-Maori do not accept that the Treaty is a “Partnership”. Proposals for an Upper House, a Maori Parliament and powers of veto are rejected. Claims of sovereignty over fresh-water and coastlines are also rejected by the majority.
Justice Churchman has cast aside the accepted standards of Law, that have stood the test of time, to install Maori Tikanga as an alternative. (This is part of the Ardern Government Agenda).
He has made a radical decision that has tossed aside the requirement of ‘exclusive usage’ regarding eligibility for the ownership of the coastline.
Since when has the term ‘exclusive’ embraced more than one party? Since he invented the concept of ‘Co-exclusive’, but it will be appealed.
If appeals do not overturn such decisions, then the public will no longer have respect for the Law.
This is just more fat on the fire.
The present government needs to understand that if/when they are replaced, that all of what they have put in place will be repealed, and we will remember who sought to dismantle our democracy. Their political futures will look dim. Judith Collins is desperately trying to rescue the National Party by attempting to make amends for their past sins by roasting Labour about the intent of He Puapua. No doubt an astute Attorney-General in a new government will find some avenue for any breaches of our constitution to be addressed, or if they are unable to find an existing law then new legislation can be written.
The NUMBER ONE ISSUE in this country right now is DEMOCRACY, not LGBTIQ, Feminism or Green issues.
The woke followers of those issues are most likely the voters who keep Jacinda Ardern’s government in power.
They need to re-assess the priorities. Ask yourselves whether Feminism will have significance in a Maori dominated feudal society. I think not. Feminists will have to sit in the back row.
If racial tension results in violence, the cost to the country and all citizens is too terrible to contemplate.
If the country remains on the present course, that is where we are headed.
No one wants to say or hear this, but becoming an ostrich will not make it go away.
The advance of the Ardern Government agenda must be stopped at all costs, and those politicians responsible for it must be banished from the New Zealand political environment.
With the revelation of the He Puapua document before parliament, the time is ripe to make the objection of the majority known, loud and clear. It is now over to each citizen to unite in campaigns of opposition.
These can be opportunistic, as the occasion demands.
In this day of social media and mobile phones, flash-mobs can embarrass the government.
Labour Party politicians will have to take notice when being button-holed on the street, or from sit-ins at their local offices. Such actions can make your point of view known. Even emailing, or having face to face conversations with acquaintances about the He Puapua document and about voting-out this government can have an impact.
Every small effort has an effect.
