Hone calls other Maori MPs “house niggers”

September 6th, 2012 at 8:10 am by David Farrar

Hat Tip: Whale Oil

I think one can understand why Hone didn’t last in the Maori Party, if that is his view of other MPs.

Any other MP who referred to Maori MPs as “niggers” would be resigning in disgrace.

    As I have posted on today’s GD. he has it just about right, but it just needs a slight amendment:

    “Time Hone Harawira realised a few home truths like (1) he can tell his little house niggers what to do, but (2) the rest of us don’t give a shit for him or his opinions!”

    There ya go, Hone, fixed it for you.

    I mean, really, apart from the usual radicals, activists, and disaffected, does anybody take Hone Harawira seriously any more? I certainly don’t. It’s a bit like any protest that I see John Minto/Sue Bradford/Penny Bright at. I just switch off, and any message they might have had is lost – because I just can’t take them seriously any more.

    Correct Morgy, but the media are just after anything that will sell more papers/magazines/TV air time. So anybody with a radical or colourful viewpoint, anybody who says outlandish things, anybody who makes threats or makes racist comments or winds people up will attract the media like sh!t attracts flies.

    I wonder if Hone realises that he does far more damage to ‘his people’ when he talks like this, than ever John Key has done.

    So, just because he is always rude and insulting then it’s OK?

    It was a late comment on Facebook, hard to know if it was an evening piss-take or cafrefully calculated, but he’s followed up with another dig this morning.

    What’s the bet that Tari and Pete cop so much flak from Maori for saying that they’re not going to the hui on water – that they find some reason to change their mind and say they’re gonna go now (or send Te Ururoa). Knowing how the Maori Party works, they’ll have to clear it with John Key first though … but if they come I’ll still be happy to see them – they need to see how pissed off everyone is with these asset sales

    Yeah well Hone isn’t going to resign and by not doing so he shows up the whole PC speech code syndrome that has plagued our lives for some decades for the utter load of bullshit it really is.

    At its roots, it is a system designed to shape thinking, and to outlaw certain thoughts. Speech and thought control have been a major plank of the lefts’ scheme to gain political power through control of our culture.

    NZers should thank Hone for undermining this utterly evil leftist strategy (one I myself have fought against for so long) even though he’s too stupid to know what he is doing.

    This typifies the futility of aspiring to harmonious race relations in NZ – the double standards of sensitivity to racial denigration. Harawira has European blood in his veins, but knows that he can hide behind his part-Maori heritage and not be officially challenged if he spews out his racist insults. He continuously keeps getting away with this crap, and we all know that again, nothing will happen to hold him to account.

    He is not punished by his voters in the far north Maori electorate when he displays his racism, in fact he wins more votes when his racism spews forth. It appears we have an electorate containing a majority of racists, who are happy to elect a racist to represent them…yet they expect the rest of the country to tip-toe around them lest we offend their delicate racial sensitivities. Harawira and his mob are hypocrites, the lot of them.

    Why are ordinary white New Zealanders held to a higher standard of accountability than maori MP Hone Harawira? Why are Harawira and his supporters unable to raise themselves to meet the standard of accountability they demand of white ?

    I agree with Redbaiter.
    The outrage when someone says something rude is actually ridiclous and it is designed to silence and intimidate.

    Rudeness has now been brought to the level of criminality in many formerly liberal democracies.

    The legislation goes through on the basis of protecting individuals ,groups ,religions or perverted sexual deviants from “harm”.

    What actual harm is there in calling someone names?

    All the while more fredoms are lost in the detail of the legislation.

    Rude,impolite,even offensive but not a crime or in most instances a reason to be sacked.

    Separatism has been a feature of NZ life for some decades, and most political parties have encouraged it, and most NZers have voted for those political parties.

    Once again, with the like of Hone in parliament, NZ’s penchant for mistaking reverse racism for “tolerant liberalism” has allowed them to reap what they have sown.

    Its been one rule for so called Maoris and another rule for the rest of NZ for some time now.

    The hui will be held at the Turangawaewae Marae at Ngaruawahia next week and spokesman Tuku Morgan today said King Tuheitia never intended to invite the Government.

    “This was always going to be our time. The Government have their own agenda. They have decided to be selective about who they talk to. The issue of water impacts on Maori across this country and it is not the sole prerogative of small cluster of iwi.”

    A number of Maori MPs from various parties had rung and indicated they would like to attend and the hui would welcome them, he said.

    The ignorance over what the HRC can do is appalling.

    The legislation it enforces defines racism as only occurring when there is an attack (verbal or otherwise) on a race based group of lesser power by a member of a race based group of greater power.

    Under this definition so called Maoris (the lesser power group) can say anything they like to anyone of white European descent (perceived as the group of greater power) and the HRC will not censure them because under the above definition there is no racism occurring.

    Don’t forget, you voted for the politicians who implemented this ridiculous legislation. You voted for the establishment of the HRC. You as voters are in the end responsible for this utterly disgusting Orwellian circumstance.

    And don’t forget that the National Party in a complete betrayal of their founding principles, has done nothing to right this outrageously divisive stain on our civilisation and culture. Rather, they have encouraged it.

    “Labour is warning the Government that a court might not look kindly on its refusal to attend a hui over Maori water rights.
    Maori King Tuheitia will host the hui at Turangawaewae Marae next week but no Government representative will be there.
    Prime Minister John Key says the Government doesn’t support a national hui or a national settlement of the water rights issue.
    Labour leader David Shearer says it’s not a good look.
    “What the court will look for is that the Government acted in good faith, and these are elements of the fact they have walked away from an opportunity to act in good faith.”
    The Maori Council’s Maanu Paul says there’s a strong chance the Council will bring further action against the Government.

    Green Party co-leader Russel Norman says John Key’s initial comment that the Government could ignore the Waitangi Tribunal’s findings got it into legal hot water.
    Dr Norman says Mr Key is not showing good faith – and that could add to the Government’s problems if the matter ends up in court.
    “For the Government to say that it won’t even attend and will actually ban its MPs from attending is the exact antithesis of good faith negotiation and is yet another blunder from this Government.”
    King Tuheitia’s spokesperson Tuku Morgan says Mr Key was not invited to the hui, but all other MPs are welcome to attend.

    The fact is that this legislation should have gone long ago and it should have been National who did away with it. Rather they initiated it and they maintained it. Just as a far left government would do.

    Its why I always say NZ is in reality a one party state and this needs to change.

    And it has become this way because National have betrayed their founding principles and this one event is at the root of every one of our social and political problems, including most prominently the problem discussed above.

    From a historical viewpoint I find it strange the way some Maori like Hone have appropriated Black American slang for themselves. In the US Hone would certainly not be considered Black or have the right to use the n-word himself the way Blacks can. Calling other Maori “house niggers” is just as inaccurate because the term has its roots in slavery, a condition Maori only ever suffered at the hands of other Maori and which Pakeha missionaries freed them from.

    I’m hoping Hone doesn’t get away with this racist bullshit again, since this time his attack was on Maori and that has always been a big no-no. I don’t see how anyone can defend him as not being a racist after this. Remember all the controversy and attacks from feminists over the relatively innocent joke on Trevor Mallard’s FB page the other day. The left should be crying out against Hone ten-times harder after his FB comments.

    His comments on Chthoniid’s photography posts have been most enlightening… I know a bit more about cameras than I do about American politics, and it quickly became clear that even when he is hopelessly ignorant about something and has leaped to completely the wrong conclusion, he’ll still carry on exactly the same way: he’s the world’s expert and everyone else is either stupid, or corrupt, or both.

    Wrong.

    King Tuheitia called the meeting for iwi leaders, the Maori Council and politicians to try for a collaborative approach on Maori rights and interests in water.

    There are no restrictions on the Maori Party to attend the Hui therefore it is illogical and inappropriate for Hone Harawira to resort to insults, Hone Harawira owes Tari and Pita an apology for his offensive language.

    He isn’t.

    He has wide support, and the reason he has this is because both Labour and National, two peas in the same pod, have exploited and promoted separatism.

    You may care to examine the phrase “wide support” more carefully. In the General Election in 2011, Mana gained just under 20,000 votes, 1% of the electorate, countrywide. I wouldn’t exactly call that a ringing endorsement.

    Thinking about the Te Tai Tokerau by-election – yes Hone won, with 7139 votes, but he was always going to. There was only 41 percent voter turnout, so not exactly a huge interest. And even some of those votes were probably swung to Hone with his message “vote for me and you’ll get two MPs, because Kelvin Davis will get in on the Labour list anyway”. His strongest support came from poor and disaffected Maori in Northland – no surprise there.

    Incidentally, remember how, after the by-election, Hone said “Maori people want the Maori Party and Mana to be alongside one another and alongside the people … If we can manage our relationship so that we’re not fighting one another and focus on the needs of our people, then we might be able to bring the Maori Party and Mana together, maybe with eight seats, Mana Maori.” Yeah, looks like he’s still trying to work alongside the Maori Party, doesn’t it?

  104. Scott (1,805 comments) says:

    My comment would be that Redbaiter is right and that the views of Hone Harawira hold wide support. I was first exposed to these radical views of racism in the 1970s when I was with a group of social work students who were roundly lambasted by Hone’s mother Titewhai Harawira. Basically their view is that the Maori of New Zealand are the victim of institutional racism. They are the underclass who are the victim of the Pakeha over class. This is classic Marxist thinking.

    Since then this is the predominant view of the white secular Liberal elite that run this country. Many of you fall into this category.

    Therefore Hone can say whatever he likes because he is the victim of institutional racism. Racism is when the oppressor, in this case white people, screw down the oppressed, in this case Maori people. Now Hone can never be a racist because he is one of the oppressed. So everything he says is okay because it is the product of his authentic rebellion against the institutional discrimination that has held Maori in poverty and second-class citizenship for decades.

    That is why we have Waitangi tribunals giving nearly ending settlements to the oppressed Maori which will go on for the foreseeable future. Because there will always be a new claim and there will always be white liberals with an excessive sense of guilt against the perceived crimes of their colonial forebears.

    So Redbaiter is quite right – the problem is white liberals who have become infected with neo-Marxist philosophies about colonial oppression.

    The solution I believe is quite clear. End all race-based settlements within the next five years. That’s it. We have run out of taxpayers money anyway.

    Secondly remove all race-based Parliamentary seats. People should get into Parliament on merit.

    Thirdly let’s have one rule for all. Justice needs to be blind. Not based on the colour of our skin. There we go – problem solved :) Have a happy day and God bless.

    By comparison to Harawira – Cowin Cwaig’s Conservative Party got 2.65% of the party vote or 59,237 votes. So Harawira is even less representative than him. Just the Court Jester, not worth worrying about.

    However my inner conspiracy-theorist asks – could Harawira be acting as a deep-cover activist for the Maori Party? And Could it be that the Mana & Maori Parties are really acting as a co-ordinated team with a shared goal?

    Reasons:

    (1) These loose “It’s just Hone being Hone” comments make Sharples / Turia / Flavell look sensible & statesmanlike by comparison, and this is probably good for consolidating Maori Party support among less radical Maoris who don’t aren’t demanding the land back and are more looking for a reason not to vote Labour. He is all the evidence you need that Maori Party are not a bunch of radical idiots with pie-in-the-sky ideas and big mouths.

    (2) Maori Sovereignty activists you’d expect Harawira to be courting would SURELY not be impressed by Harawira aligning himself with a limp-dick peace activist like Minto? So why has he done it? Could the reason be to run interference for the Maori Party, attracting the ire of Kiwibloggers and everyone else who think the Maoris get too much already, thus sparing the Maori Party the bulk of that sort of attention?

    It’s not just a question of settlements. That type of stuff you describe is right through the school curriculum.NZ children are being taught that their ancestors are evil oppressors.
    They are then dragooned into celebrations of Maori and Pacific culture,while NZ culture is ignored/denigrated.

I sat in the 1st row of the audience for a time watching guests being insulted at length by this woman and her acolytes braying and sneering in Maori while, all about me, there was non-comprehension, embarrassment, martyred tolerance or confusion. I was eventually sickened by this so made my way to the centre aisle and commenced the LONG walk to the back door exit. I damm nearly expected a spear in my back on this long walk but NOBODY had the guts to join me. Some sat there in their neo-liberal glory and pretended, really hard, that I was simply having a toilet break. Those people were in the early stages of indoctrination. Now it is largely complete.

    In the sense of preaching to the converted Hamnida or in the sense of reaching out and apologising to those whose forebears and ourselves built all the roads, schools, hospitals and all the infrastructure, while Hone et al sat around moaning about some distant past which can’t possibly be recreated unless one travels back in time and gives those Maori ancestors MG42s which is about the only thing which would have pwevented the hated colonisation which built all of that aforesaid shit?

    Has it ever occured to you Hamnida to ask yourself just why it is that Hone and the Gweens and all the other mentals who behave as if the above would have been preferable, to ask yourself: what precisely did the 15 or so generations who’ve called NZ home since that time, really achieve for this nation? I mean forget the material things, cities, roads, factories, schools, hospitals etc you see around you, what about the intellectual things, like the Westminster legal system, like the education system which goes from primer to tertiary, what about the international relationships we’ve got due to our CommonWealth heritage. Out of all of this, none of it, is ever mentioned by the lefty idiots who completely eschew it, as if it has come about by accident and as if it would have come about anyway, if only Maowi had been left in peace to pwance and fwolic thwough the fowest.

    They never even address that do they Hamnida. Not Hone, not Mutu, not Walker, not Sykes, not Iti, not Jackson, etc etc etc. None of them. And in so doing, they generate, deliberately, this hallucination, this magical fantasy, amongst the extremely poorly educated Maori and that’s most of them, that they deserve better.

    The only reason they ever get traction is because their audience are idiots. You’re not Hamnida. You need to do some thinking, if you’re thinking they’re the ones who have the high ground.

    Sure it’s hardly a Wahaika in the head but given Hone’s an MP and he says stuff like that, does that say anything to you about reality vs fiction in how Maori might actually have behaved back when everyone was roaming around? Or do you seriously, seriously think the poor innocent naive darlings were just prancing round the forest caring for small furry animals and the taniwha at the local swimming hole and that’s all they ever did before the evil white man came along and taught them how to kill?

    Hone now tries to explain himself. Apparently his comment wasn’t directed at the Maori Party, it was directed at Maori MPs in the National Party.

    Oh good. That’s so much better. Because it makes such a huge difference when you find out just who he was calling house niggers, and implying they were traitors to their race.

    Mana Party leader Hone Harawira says his ‘N-word’ slur was never directed at his former Maori Party colleagues.

    Speaking on Campbell Live tonight, Mr Harawira denies his comments were directed at the pair.

    “I didn’t call anyone a house n***er, I’m challenging John Key in the way in which he’s treating his Maori MPs. He’s treating them that way and I don’t think he should.”

    Mr Harawira says he doesn’t regret his choice of words.

    “If people don’t want me to use a phrase from Alabama from back in the 1950s, maybe they should say to the prime minister ‘stop acting like a plantation owner from Alabama in the 1950s’.”

    There’s another interesting point. Hone says ‘I didn’t call anyone a house nigger’. Hmmm. Rereading the quote, I can kind of squint in a certain way and hold my head on an angle and agree that technically he didn’t call anyone a house nigger – but that’s really stretching it, Hone.

    Come on, Hone – everyone knows exactly what you were saying, and just what you were implying. Man up. Don’t try and wriggle out of it now.

    “Time John Key realised a few home truths like (1) he can tell his little house niggers what to do, but (2) the rest of us don’t give a shit for him or his opinions!”
