The Ministry of Education has launched a wide-reaching programme called Te Hurihanganui which is presented as “anti-racism” but is actually anti-white.
Introduced as creating a system based on a Maori worldview, Maori sovereignty, Maori family relationships, and the Treaty of Waitangi, the programme holds that you, I and everyone else is responsible for “Maori educational success”.
Maori language, culture, philosophy and principles will be imposed while criticising non-Maori constructions and definitions of Maori.
The Ministry said: “Building critical consciousness means reflecting critically on the imbalance of power and resources in society, and taking anti-oppressive action to do something about it for the better. It means recognising white privilege, understanding racism, inequity faced by Maori and disrupting that status quo to strengthen equity”.
This anti-white philosophy is known as critical race theory.
This is the view that the law and legal institutions are inherently racist and that race itself is a socially constructed concept that is used by white people to further their economic and political interests at the expense of people of colour.
The next Government should remove anti-white race beliefs from the Ministry responsible for educating our children and grandchildren, and send a message that the days of race-based taxpayer funded indoctrination that sows division are over.
Is Ihumatao deal waiting for political blockage to clear?
Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern confirmed on Monday on NewsTalk ZB that politics had prevented a deal on Ihumatao progressing.
That comment raises the question that if a deal exists in some form, and if the political blockage is removed, will Ms Ardern explain to voters before the voting period ends why they think it is appropriate to meddle in private property rights with taxpayer money.
Our petition for the Government to allow both Te Kawerau a Maki and Fletchers to proceed with their lawful business at Ihumatao has collected 3237 signatures. If you have not done so already, please sign our petition at http://chng.it/xPN6P55k

Frequently asked questions
- What is Hobson's Pledge? Hobson’s Pledge supporters think it is absurd to argue in the 21st century that people who chance to have a Maori ancestor, always with other ancestors too of course, should have superior rights to those who don’t. And utterly absurd that there are politicians who want to be taken seriously who still push this nonsense.
