As NZ wrestles with hate speech vs free speech, the anti-Māori crowd have maliciously attempted to force themselves divisively into the debate…

One Treaty, One Nation pamphlet ‘racist and stupid’, but not hate speech – academic
An academic says anti-Māori pamphlets distributed in Auckland are hateful, but not “hate speech” under current legislation, and says it’s an important discussion New Zealanders need to have.

The pamphlets, headlined ‘One Treaty, One Nation’ were distributed to homes in Auckland’s Point Chevalier over the past two weeks, bearing the slogans “no special representation of part-Maoris in local government” and “end the stranglehold that one minority group has over the culture and life of the nation”.

“The benefits of colonisation for Maoris, lifting them out of a violent Stone Age existence, far outweighed any negative consequences,” it reads.

…Pt Chev is so Woke it gets up 2 hours before everyone else and may as well be renamed Pt Che – posting a racist anti-Maori pamphlet here in letterboxes is like trying to get someone to buy a raw steak at a vegan birthday party, they are being targeted to manufacture attention.

We are being tested and the provocateurs are praying we take the bait by over reacting in these sensitive times and goaded into reacting in a manner which inadvertently makes them martyrs and gives them social traction.

This isn’t hate speech, it’s stupid fucking speech. The assertions that Māori are some primitive stone age culture who should thank their lucky stars for the enlightenment white people brought is an historic abusrdity.

Cook came to NZ because British capitalism at the time was desperate for new fields and lands to rape and pillage from, the very interests that shaped NZs first interactions by white people have always been exploitative, not enlightening.

Māori paid a horrific price for this so called ‘enlightenment’, they lost 95% of their land in less than a century and their forced introduction into modernity almost wiped them out as a people at the turn of the 1900s.

Only the most delusional and historically ignorant amongst us would believe this vile little pamphlet, and the best way to counter this pus is directly attack it and hold up the truth.

The single worst thing we could do is use this as an example of hate speech that needs banning because we will create the martyr’s of tomorrow.

Liberal progressive democracy should have the strength to allow speech we disagree with and defeat the arguments of petty bigots, by simply banning this speech to protect us in trigger free safe spaces is intellectual cowardice and it is a capitulation beneath those who fought for NZ.

We must resist millennial micro aggression policing values to contaminate the free speech debate, such wilful self censorship are the actions of frightened children in a theocracy, not thinking adults living in a democracy.

    Well I don’t think my brown skin makes me privileged nor gives me special rights over other people. Something as ubiquitous as skin colour can not be handed over to some hate group with out a proper debate. They’ve already got most of radio and television, why give them even more stuff with out putting up a proper rebuttal. So no, you can’t have one nation because two people signed the treaty. So long as society deems the treaty to be morel then a small minority won’t be able to pull the majority to one side.

    Rewriting historical facts is not going to be a strong counter argument Martyn, even if some would be better left in the past. Denying history will only inflame feelings and bring the worst aspects of it into the present discussion.
    To an extent the concessions that are being made to Maori that annoy such people as have produced the offending pamphlet are symbolic rather than substantial where substance is what is needed and would not cause such irritation .
    We need to do better now for people living today, not obsess with the unchangeable matters of the past. That is not to say that correcting wrongs as the tribunal is attempting to do should not proceed where they can be clearly identified however.

    leave our Maori seats alone we never created these seats it was the settler government who created these racist seats so they could control Maori at the time and so Maori couldn’t out vote them and now some Pakeha want to get rid of them why? national managed to wreck our country and got 9 yrs under the MMP system so why change now when we (Maori) need them more than ever with stats not being collected properly and white supremacist running riot in our country.

    A lot of ignorant uneducated buffoons in NZ who know very little about NZ History ?

      @Ngungukai
      But the worst, and most dangerous kind of ignorant buffoon is the educated one. You heard the saying “ Nothing more dangerous than someone educated beyond their intelligence.”
      I see a david round’s name on that silly little piece of paper above. Unless I’m mistaken, david round’s a law professor.
      don brash, for fucks sake. Are people still listening that bare chested old narcissist. Is he not in jail yet?? David? Focus david?
      And what is wrong with having a multicultural AO/NZ with special rights for Maori? We have special rights for the rich so why not Maori? Heard of peter thiel? He strolled right past our immigration ministry by throwing US dollar bills about. Access to beaches? If I want to go to the beach, I’ll go to Bali thanks. The water here’s far too cold for this pasty white fellow and that makes the man-parts shrivel. All in all, an unpleasant and insecure carry on. Cold winds and sandy bums. I can’t see the attraction.

      Pay particular attention to the video. In there, there are many clues to what some non Maori people are blind too. To what they’re missing out on. How can Non Maori understand that which they’re entirely ignorant of? Would a dog prefer its draughty kennel if it knew it could have a soft, warm,comfy sofa? There’s plenty of room in AO/NZ for a bi segmented society which, I would hope to God could enjoy and celebrate the differences.
      ‘Rolling Thunder’? Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. I bet that was brash. All class brash. All class.

    Look, I’ve had one or two conversations with people as to why the rich get so vitriolic about Maori and Treaty settlements, especially when I (and therefore everybody else should!) know that full reparation can never really be achieved in addressing issues of justice for Maori.

    This Point Chev leaflet echoes Amy Brooke nee Agnes-Mary M ‘s writings for the Aus’ “Spectator,” so I searched her website on David Round, whose name I recalled from her previous columns.

    I’m not a masochist, so I can only read small amounts of her at a time if I wish to retain some sort of equilibrium.

    However I was stunned to read:

    “In fact, the settling of so many well-contested claims has created more grievances, and arguably more injustices, many of them now directly against New Zealanders at large, continually being taxed, for no good reason, for issues this generation had absolutely nothing to do with, and for which it not should not be held responsible.

    We can lay their contribution to the continual impoverishing of this country by the now accumulatively billions being lavished on all things Maori–only at the door of both National and Labour politicians.”

    What Brooke seems to be saying here is that this country is being impoverished because of the billions of tax-payer money being lavished on Maori.

    Really ? Impoverished white people being taxed to enrich brown people ?

    These sort of views have to be being deliberately divisive and trouble-making and with some specific agenda, because they are so patently absurd.

    Where there’s just one author triping away, it’s easy to dismiss them as an isolated back-blocks nutter. But when it’s a co-authoring group doing it, then why ?
