“When Donald Brash talks in glowing terms about Hobson’s Pledge and his determination to take away rights guaranteed under the Treaty of Waitangi, it sounds awfully like Donald Trump.” Mr Harawira says.
“Well good luck Donald [Brash] every country needs a red neck.”
Mr Harawira says a quick scan of “Māori privileges” shows exactly how Māori are getting on.
“Housing, badly. Employment, badly. Health, badly. Education, badly. Prison, badly. Need I carry on?”
Mr Harawira says what Dr Brash is trumpeting is “good old fashioned racism”.
When asked if the Hobson’s Pledge group is racist or promotes racist ideas, Mr Harawira told Newshub he believes the group is aiming to take away the rights of
Māori under the Treaty of Waitangi.
“Oh absolutely it’s racist, how can you call children dying in poverty ‘privilege’. What do you call 60 percent of your people being in prison? Privilege?
“Come on, absolutely this is racism and it’s time somebody called it out. I’m the man.” he says.
