Minor correction

Brian Rudman says:

As a Pakeha New Zealander, I have long disliked the way Mr Harawira labels us as white mother molesters, but I’m bemused why Hone has suddenly become a pariah.

The latest Marae-DigiPoll survey ranked him as Maoridom’s most popular politician.

Love him or loathe him, Pakeha New Zealand will continue to have to live with him and the views that obviously make him so popular among Maori-roll voters.

Hone is obviously popular in his electorate, having won it twice. But Rudman is wrong saying the Marae0DIgipoll ranked him Maoridom’s most popular politician.

The poll results say:

Currently, there are 16 MPs in Parliament with Maori ancestry. Of those MPs, which one do you favour most?”

Pita Sharples   31.9%
Tariana Turia   16.7%
  8.2%
Te Ururoa Flavell  3.3%
Parekura Horomia  3.2%

So Hone is not the most popular by a long shot. He is at one quarter that of Sharples and one half Turia.

    What a surprise do you expect Rudman to get anything right, He looks through rose tinted glasses.

    Take the pole again in a weeks time and he will not achieve 8% either….

    He has caused the race relations to take a step back 20 years, he is nothing but a racist fuck stick…

    Hone and his family of activists are divisive; always have been always will be. So its not really a case of new found pariah status its more accurate to say that people have finally woken up and have acknowledged the inherent institutional racism that has been foisted on society in NZ by august bodies such as the human rights commission (and exploited by people like the Harawira’s) and are now saying enough.

    BUT there are plenty of other maori MPs who register nothing. So 3.5% against that background is not too bad.

    I’d be OUTRAGED if a Pakeha MP who said Maoris were nigger-happy babyfuckers enjoyed 8.2% support in the electorate!

    Now that I have the freedom of speech to say privately and publicly what I fucking well like, I think all Maori MP’s should be put up against a wall and shot.

    “Hone is obviously popular in his electorate, having won it twice. ”

    It says a lot about the inteligence of the Maori voters in Harawira’s electorate, doesn’t it? Hooked on benefit money and hand-outs many of these people lost their thinking ability long ago.

    Whilst I wouldn’t shoot them all, I think they should all be sacked and come in on the general seats.

    Its what the socialists do, get people to depend on the state, they don’t want them to be secure in them selves as then they have no long term power.
    That’s what makes the Labour so abhorrent, slavers all.
    Working for families a benefit for the middle class, when that has gone I know we’ll be on the way up.

    3.2% of the maori roll have some financial interest in the closest KFC to the beehive?
