Help fight rising tide of racial preferment

This year 2020 comes with a wave of issues that add to the rising tide of racial preferment that is being forced upon us.

Adding a Treaty clause to state sector legislation, the focus on things Maori in the Education and Training Bill, along with the continuing threats to our public spaces through blocking access and removing trees has demonstrated how this Government is committed to supporting the idea that we have two standards of citizenship in New Zealand.

And it is not restricted to central government driving this agenda. Queenstown property owners are faced with having to consult with iwi if they want to do anything with properties they own.

And we are awaiting a decision regarding land owned by Fletchers at Ihumatao in Auckland that has been occupied by people who want it to be given to them. We are worried about what impact this would have on property ownership rights and past Treaty settlements.

We emerge from the holiday break with renewed commitment to the belief that all New Zealanders should be treated equally before the law and that race-based affirmative action is creating a deep rift in our society.

We will continue to inform you about the advancing agenda of race-based preferential treatment.

Do not be confused. This is not an issue of Maori against non-Maori. I am Maori, and could never claim to speak for all Maori as many of the self-appointed elite believe they can.

Many of us do not like an elite that claims to represent us while serving only themselves.

As a nation we deserve more than an agenda that is promoting victimhood, building anger, undermining democracy, and dividing citizens by ethnicity.

We rely on you, our supporters, to spread the word, to discuss these important issues, to be informed and speak up.

Thank you for your continued support.

Submit against race-based public service

You have until 5pm on Friday to air your views on the Public Service Bill which hopes to “modernize” the New Zealand public service partly by adding a Treaty of Waitangi section.

Public Service Minister Chris Hipkins said he would require chief executives to recognize “the aims and aspirations of Maori, the employment requirements of Maori, and the need for greater involvement of Maori in the Public Service.”

The State Sector Act 1988 would be repealed.

This tinkering by Mr Hipkins creates a racial obligation on public sector employers and appears to put “those with a Maori ancestor” ahead of “best person for the job”.
