As mentioned in my previous posts, prior to my realization of what was developing within Maoridom, I was a quiet average citizen getting on with my life. When political stuff came onto the TV screen, I flipped to another channel. I just left governing to the government. That’s what we elected them to do. Their role was to act in the interests of all citizens and to do what they promised to do in their election manifestos. I was just like the bulk of the population, happily cruising through each day, oblivious to what was happening within government.
Whilst a government was doing its job honestly, I paid no interest, and like many people today, resented anyone shoving their political views in my face, and there lies a large part of today’s problem. Apathy to politics and resentment of anything that disturbs our tranquillity. We are all just human.
At this point I have to reiterate a few points that have been mentioned in a previous post, or by other authors as a transition to where this article is headed. I see the problem as a two-headed taniwha. One head is the Ardern Government, and the other head is the Maori Sovereignty Movement. My article addresses both factions.
the Ardern Government:
Today the political landscape has changed. We now have a government that acts to advance only the interests of a powerful, greedy cell that controls the Maori 15% of the country’s population. This government is now facilitating a secret agenda, (He Puapua), that had been kept under wraps through the entire lead-up to the last election.
This document has only seen the light of day in recent weeks. Luckily it was leaked, firstly in a redacted form, and then it was fully exposed when the He Puapua document was requisitioned under the Official Information Act.
Devious and dishonest are the only words to describe what the Ardern
Government is doing.
This slumbering population has provided ideal conditions for the introduction of radical changes by stealth.
This agenda will shake the country to its roots.
Since the He Puapua proposal was not presented as part of Labour’s Election manifesto, the Ardern Government does not have any mandate to bring about the changes that are proposed in He Puapua. To exacerbate this bad situation, the news media, which is supposed to be a public watchdog, has now been infiltrated with woke / pro-Ardern journalists, who advance the causes of this devious government. The Ardern Government has corrupted the democratic role that it was elected to perform. The media machine also discredits those who seek to wake up the slumbering population. 
Well, this once
quiet Kiwi has woken up, and now steps out into unfamiliar territory to enlighten
as many voters as possible. I have feared putting my neck out, and then
realised that this is just what was intended by those pushing this agenda. I
would find it hard to look in the mirror if I did not speak up.
Any effect that I might have, would be small to start with, but I hope that just like a virus, the message will pass from person to person, multiplying along the way, to reach a significant number of voters, in time for the next election.
Whilst it would
be great to toss out the entire rotten cohort of Labour MPs and their
supporting comrades, it would be a satisfying goal to swing sufficient seats
to install a new government, that would restore democracy and stability.
Hopefully, just as the USA administration is pursuing Donald Trump for his sins, one would hope that those in the present New Zealand Government, who are responsible for our state of affairs, will also face their day of reckoning.
The presentation of an election manifesto to capture votes, and then secretly doing something else without a mandate, by stealth, amounts to fraud.
address the Maori Sovereignty Movement:
(Note: Maori words intended for the Maori readers).
I have tried to view the future through the Maori lens and can appreciate that they would want to retrieve what they once had. Today, your rangatiras have had a taste of the corporate life with all the trimmings and the mana that goes with it, and they hunger for more. They have a vision where life for the arikis would be kapai.
To gain political clout, they had to unite the tribes.
Until around the
mid-1960s, inter-tribal jealousies were the Maoris political weakness.
Sir Tipene O’Regan once inferred that:
- “Ngai Tahu are under greater threat from North Island tribes than they are from the Pakeha”.
- “All these people and organisations by whom we are surrounded are not bad people, they are not malevolent – some of them know more about us than we know ourselves, some of them care more about our history than do many of our own”. 
Hate for the
Pakeha was the tool used to unite the tribes.
Many Maoris have been brought up with stories that most of the Pakehas are porangi and greedy, or that they look down upon Maoris. These stories are propaganda that is intended to unite all tribes through hatred for the white man.
The story of the wahines and tamariki supposedly burned alive in the church at Rangiowhia being an example.
The objective can be termed as - The power of one – unity.
for my accusation of hate-mongering is manifested by incidents like the
outbursts in television interviews by Donna Awatere-Huata, (“Kill a white”),
circa 1982, and later a melt-down by Derek Fox.
They were both members of the group ‘Te Ahi Kaa’  and although their expressed intent was to preserve the Maori language and culture, it is interesting to note that, a number of its other members also professed a hate for the Pakeha. This is in 1986. Was Te Ahi Kaa more political than it was cultural? Do we accept that trips to Cuba by some members was purely for the rum and cigars?
The use of hatred
for a common foe as a tool to unite factions, has been used over the centuries
in many lands, and is still an effective, yet unsavoury, political tool.
However, using this tool carries a price.
Having taught hate to achieve an objective, once the objective is achieved, how do you un-teach hate.
If you attempt to unteach hatred, then you make a lie of what you propounded earlier, to your own discredit.
If you cannot unteach it, then it becomes a poison that will be a source of trouble for generations. Don’t we know it?
I have personally
experienced the emergence of this hate, where it had not previously existed.
In the 1980s, when meeting some Maoris, who had been my friends in childhood, after twenty years they were cold and even hostile. There had not been any incidents between us in the interim to explain such a reaction.
I can only put it down to them having been indoctrinated and polarised.
(Incidentally, I did not start writing articles until 2015).
Let us take a
look further down the track.
Suppose Maori do gain control over the government and in turn gain control over the population.
Do you think that the non-Maori tax-payers are going to be happy with this state of affairs
There will be deep resentment, and trouble will start.
There is so much pent-up anger, that it would rage out of control.
Both sides would pay a dear price. At this point, the older readers will be nodding their heads in sorry agreement. They do not want this as much as I don’t.
If you lived in a
town like Wairoa, like I have, and witnessed the senseless violence that Maori
gangs perpetrated upon each other, then you can appreciate the level of
mentality that would pervade in such a time of conflict.
In the late 1980s, I was a volunteer with the St John Ambulance, and had a ring-side seat.
The Mighty Mongrel Mob gang (MMM), dominated the town like a brown version of the Ku Klux Klan.
Their adversary was the Black Power gang. Resentment between these factions ran deep.
This phenomena was just an echo from pre-1840.
This was just Ngati Kuhungunu warring with Tuhoe in a new century.
The police were ineffective. You could call the police, then they rolled up half an hour later to take notes.
Perhaps they were avoiding being labelled as ‘racist’.
Utu was to the
forefront of gang thinking. It was ‘Musket Wars 2’.
Was this a taste of the future?
These experiences underlie my present fears.
I can see a
situation developing like ‘The Troubles’ in Northern Ireland. Do we
Would the police be able to cope?
Would the Armed Forces remain united?
What about the
families of mixed race caught in the middle?
The whole concept of He Puapua is riddled with warped thinking and is a recipe for racial war.
The country would be economically and socially crippled. The infrastructure wrecked. There would be no winners.
The hate would live on.
Society would be toxic for generations to come, and for what?
Would all of those Kiwis in Australia pressure the Australian Government to intervene? If Australia can risk the wrath of China over the plight of Uighurs in China, then for sure, they will intervene to restore peace in New Zealand, or whatever its name is by that stage.
Perhaps the Maoris
could whistle up help from their communist friends.
After all, hasn’t the taniwha snuggled up to the dragon?
At present, with their ‘Belt and Road’ program, China is trying to get its foot in the door of a number of South Pacific countries. Would the Maori Supremacists get a better deal than Hong Kong?
Who will call the tune then?
Everyone loses and everyone suffers because some greedy ariki dream of Rangatiratanga, Kawanatanga or any other tanga, over us all.
Some readers will
accuse me of being ‘over the top’ and others, both Maori and non-Maori
will say, “thank God that somebody has the guts to lay it out for us to
think about. To say what everyone is too fearful to say”.
I am certain that I am not the only one with such fears.
What I lay out before readers is a very real possibility.
This is a message for peace.
Those Maori who are not ariki must sort out their leaders, just as the rest of us must sort out the Ardern Government. You all have a vote.
Together we can vanquish the two-headed taniwha.
