When thinking of the enormity of the task of educating those seemingly asleep to the horror of the proposed takeover by radical Maoris of our very Sovereignty and lands, I decided to take some direct action myself, so I wrote to PM Jacinda Adern directly, plus copied my email to her to the Leader of the Opposition, Judith Collins, other National MP’s and ACT Leader David Seymour.
Since then, I was gratified to receive replies which inferred my emails had been read. So I am quite pleased with the result.
May I respectively suggest that others might like to do the same, as I really do think that we should now be commencing action to reverse this takeover if we can.
My aim is that a large number of emails like mine below [abridged] will daily arrive on our Prime Minister’s secretary's desk. If nothing else is achieved, I hope it will likely be reported to our PM that people like us will no longer accept from her and her MP’s dictatorship by stealth, abrogating both our rights and against our will giving undeserved privilege to radical Maori.
Dear Hon. Leader and Prime Minister, J. Adern,
I well remember Ms Adern, that day on 15 March 2019 when immediately after the white supremacist attacked Muslims in Christchurch, you wonderfully told them that they were “US” – which rightly has echoed around the world, as it showed, we are all “one” i.e. a society of people who cared equally for each other regardless of race.
I read in the Newspaper stuff.co.nz that in Nelson, on the issue of Maori Wards, Mayor Reece had announced that her Council had voted, and on this basis it said that she was proceeding with the appointment of Maori Wards in Nelson immediately. This followed a meeting with local iwi only. Non-Maori were not invited, nor were they given any opportunity whatsoever to discuss the matter and express their opinions for and against. Only Maori were granted that privilege by the Mayor. Because of this I therefore found that I had been deprived of my democratic rights locally, but also deprived of the principle that, “The electoral system belongs to electors, not the elected”. Naturally, I am extremely upset.
The issue of Maori Wards for myself and family - was miniscule, compared with MP Andrew Little’s suggestions for revamping of the Ministry of Health’s structure; which proposed a concept of co-leadership with a new Maori health authority, able to veto policy of the proposed funding head, called NZ Health. In contrast, all New Zealanders of course now currently enjoy a multicultural and fully democratic society which provides equality of outcomes for all of us including Maori - regardless of race.
The new model suggested by Little does the opposite, it gives privilege based unfairly by race to Maori who comprise only 15% of the population. It therefore completely abolishes democracy by giving favour to only a small fraction of the population rather than a majority. In any case, of all possible ways of restructuring Health; racial division is surely the worst one could possibly imagine, since with health, fulfilling needs (as all doctors rightly say) is the best and most sensible arbiter of all. So a restructured system should consider needs first, not ethnicity. Not only that, but bi-culturalism (favoured by Maori), is essentially “separatism” – as is any structure attained based on race, it is also racist by any definition of the word and an unacceptable alternative to our current multiculturalism which enriches all of us, not just a few and embodies rightly the concept that we are all equal...
In my view it would be to the detriment of us all Ms Adern, if you should support the views of a minority of radical Maori championed by many kind and compassionate non-Maoris (like yourself), who have not studied closely the falsity and propaganda of radical Maoris - who perhaps because of their tribal background are naturally seeking the best outcomes only for themselves. But with nil regard to critical values such as democracy for all we and our ancestors have all fought World Wars to retain, instead of their delusion that only race matters.
I was delighted to note recently that you said you had backed off the notion of having a Maori parliament – hopefully, you have now decided it unacceptably divisive and therefore wrong, as I do.
I read recently in the news media that you currently favour Te Reo learning in schools should be compulsory. I really similarly hope you change your mind about this as well. Since just yesterday morning I read that vandals had despicably damaged signs concerning Te Reo in Invercargill – so clearly any suggestion downstream to force all New Zealanders to learn Te Reo is clearly likely to prove similarly divisive and counterproductive to your desire to promote it. Allowing free choice on the other hand rather than compulsion, is surely more likely to gain acceptance.
Returning to my first paragraph, I am sure all New Zealanders would like to see you Ms Adern return to the conviction you showed in Christchurch – of “US”, “oneness” and “that we are all one” rather than give invalid privilege to a single race.
