KAHUNAS IN THE ATTIC

“…[A] hyphenated American is not an American at all. This is just as true of the man who puts “native” before the hyphen as of the man who puts German or Irish or English or French before the hyphen. Americanism is a matter of the spirit and of the soul. Our allegiance must be purely to the United States. We must unsparingly condemn any man who holds any other allegiance. But if he is heartily and singly loyal to this Republic, then no matter where he was born, he is just as good an American as any one else. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities…”–Teddy Roosevelt, 1915

“We can build a collective civic space large enough for all our separate identities, that we can be e pluribus unum — out of one, many.”–Al Gore, getting the National Motto bassackwards, 1994

Honolulu Star Bulletin:

Hawaii’s Congressional delegation today released what it calls the final text of the Akaka Bill. …

The House of Representatives Committee on Rules met today and approved the bill to be considered on the House floor. However, there is no timeline for Senate consideration, according to Akaka. …

According to Akaka’s office, the changes to the bill:

>> Make it clear that Native Hawaiians will have the inherent powers and privileges of a native government — self-determination like indigenous people on the continental U.S. — with the exception of the right to conduct gambling.

Heritage blog:

The U.S. House is expected to vote today on the creation of the largest tribal entity in U.S. history under the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act, despite last-minute opposition by Hawaii’s governor, Linda Lingle (R), and serious questions regarding the bill’s constitutionality.

The bill would establish a separate, race-based governing body to represent Native Hawaiians in negotiations with state and federal governments. As The National Review writes, the Act would:

…partly disenfranchise a portion of one state’s residents, create a parallel government for those meeting a legislated criterion of ethnic purity, and would portend the transfer of public assets, land, and political power from those who fail to satisfy the standard of ethnic purity to those who do.

Peter Kirsanow:

Americans should watch their respective congressman’s vote on the Native Hawaiian Government Reorganization Act (the “Akaka Bill”) closely. A vote in favor of the bill is a vote in favor of granting expansive powers to a race-based government that will establish a regime of benefits and preferences based on racial purity.

But it worked out so well last time, Beauregard!

“Out of many, One.”

    I wonder how many folks I could get to agitate for self-government as "NewYork-Americans."

    Hm. Strike that. Things are bad enough around here already.

    I have been to Hawaii many times(all the islands) and have felt the tension that this kind of bullshit is encouraging. Especially on Moloki where I have encountered open hostility(I'm white BTW) which is generally thought to be the least influenced by the evil American culture.

    I quit going, fuck 'em. They can keep their crappy shit to themselves. And if you think for a second that these "natives" will hesitate to use this new found power to discriminate against people who have established businesses and homes there, baby you are dreaming.

    It's such a shame because in the years leading up to statehood and subsequent years, oceans of good will was sent both ways. This is the kind of crap you can always expect when you encourage "diversity"

    Hell, take a look at blacks here. We are, that is whites and blacks, and for that matter, latinos and whites, all of us are growing apart because liberals think there are positive effects by not just celebrating your heritage by by never letting go of a culture that you can be 10 generations removed from and not integrating into America.

    Want to see what will happen? Look at western Europe where there are whole sections of large cities where muslims have refused to integrate and where rule of law, police and fireman are powerless.

    A Hawaiian Malmo? Don't laugh, this is exactly how this bullshit starts.

    It's the liberals' Divide and Conquer strategy, to rule by dividing us all into angry tribes against each other.

    The Left hates America, so they don't want anyone else to think of themselves as American either.

    ps: I say if Confederate-Americans have to put up with fleeing Yankees, and Westerners have to let in the fleeing Californians, then Hawaii has to take its lumps, too.

    <<...“We can build a collective civic space large enough for all our separate identities, that we can be e pluribus unum — out of one, many.”–Al Gore, getting the National Motto bassackwards, 1994...>>

    He didn't get it bassackwards. It was a "slip" - but not a "mistake -- the "slip" was of the FREUDIAN variety.

    What he gave us was a rare peek inside the mind of a hardcore Lefty like himself.

    It's among the most critical planks in their agenda - turning the melting-pot into the "salad bowl." A united populace would never stand for what they're pushing and planning - hence the need for division. So far it's working like a charm - all the hyphenated-americans, black against white, both against hispanics and vice-versa.... I could go on for days but I'd just be preaching to the choir...

    Ultimately it's the politics of victimhood that keep the Dems in power - though even the "left-right" paradigm we've been fed is just so much lying propaganda.

    The REAL left-right continuum is not communists liberals progressives on the left and Conservatives on the right - though that *IS* how it currently plays out... It is in reality TOTAL Government on the far left and *NO* government on the far right. Our Republic was founded to provide just ENOUGH government to enable maximum freedom - and IT WORKED! No country in history did nearly as much to raise the standard of living for the human race planet-WIDE than the US - until we lost our way.

    We no longer have a "2-party" system - we haven't for many decades. What we have are the 2 branches of "The Government Party" - The Stupids and the Evils. We are where we are because the so-called Republicans (AKA "Stupids") have "compromised" with the so-called "Democrats" (AKA "Evils") too many times to count. Each compromise has led us inexorably to the left, until we find ourselves where we are today.

    The fact is that good simply CANNOT compromise with evil - because evil will triumph every time! For example: Let's say the stupids want "Zero" and the Evils want "100" - so they "compromise" on 50. Did the stupids actually get ANYTHING out of the deal? No - they got NOTHING, but the Evils got half of their goal. Repeat (and repeat, and...) ad-nauseum and you get where we are today.

    It seems as if we've finally managed to wake up the sheeple - but is it too little too late?
