There's a (foreign) call to protest in Honolulu that stole a Black Lives Matter photo.
The poster reads
The Government does not have the authority to control us!
The right of the people to peaceably assemble and petition the Government for a redress of grievances
(Pic obviously lifted from Black Lives Matter protest including a dude in a Phillies hat, w text reading:
Kuokoa Rally (Freedom)
Friday 5 pm Ala Moana Park
The quarantine is illegal! Small businesses have the right to determine their own hours!
Then the kicker:
Bring signs and bullhorns and aloha
To which Kumu Hina scorched:
I DO NOT SUPPORT THIS EFFORT!
I know that we are all getting frustrated with having to stay home, avoid hugging and kissing and isolating ourselves...
But I DO NOT THINK THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO.
I dont know who did this announcement but could you please use your own language instead of my/our Kanaka language!!!
If we use Kūokoa it would be for freedom of Hawaii from the United States.
It would not be used in this context so dont get it twisted. This looks more like cultural appropriation.
Why would any Kanaka leader have our people expose ourselves unnecessarily to COVID19 while it still runs around stealing and taking from our people??
And I believe I see all the Haole Popolo in the photo here. This is not a Kanaka effort, this photo looks like its from a Black Lives Matter event.
I DONT SUPPORT THIS AT ALL.
Btw...we dont write stuff like Bring signs, bullhorn and aloha. Das Bullshit. Use your own words dude!
TO ALL OF MY PEOPLE...STAY HOME!!
(To anyone who read this far please know there is no negativity associated with the term Haole Popolo)
that Hina posting
But nobody reading Hinas post would be showing up to be used. On the balance I see it as a responsible and necessary post.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion.
but what a perfect time to prey on emotions, and hopefully fill minds full of poppy-cock. Every day is a horror show, but somehow I think Hawaians are better than mainlander's, in seeing through bullsh*t.
As long as they don't target these yahoos, specifically, they can issue health orders governing the size of the crowds, impoase distancing restrictions - even on speech.
Their wheel house.
What kind of moron would post this?
A far away one.
But Kumu Hina is the one to get the message to Hawaiians. Not everyone but most.
/By Hawaiians I dont mean people who live in Hawaii, just to be clear.
