Finally some sense

When Maori say offensive and racist things, like Hone Harawira and now Margaret Mutu, all too often those who speak up are themselves abused for being racist. No such accusation though can be leveled against Maori speaking up against Maori.

Ngapuhi leader David Rankin has called on Auckland University to sack the head of its Maori studies department following a “racist” outburst at the weekend.

Professor Margaret Mutu said white immigration to New Zealand should be restricted because it poses a threat to race relations due to immigrants’ “white supremacist” attitudes.

Rankin said Mutu had “gone too far this time”.

“She obviously thinks of herself as the Robert Mugabe of New Zealand politics, and has caused offence to hundreds of thousands of New Zealanders because of her extreme racist views.”

“As a Maori, I welcome white immigrants,” Rankin said. “They are the ones most likely to bring employment opportunities for our communities, and we don’t see the sort of racism Margaret refers to.”

Rankin said Mutu has no place working at a university.

“I think Auckland University are scared of her,” he said. “And so they lack the courage to deal with her, but I think after this episode, they will be having another look at her position and the harm she is bringing to Auckland University.”

Rankin said Mutu was a “champagne radical” who turned up to a foreshore and seabed hikoi in her “Armani suit”.

“What she doesn’t realise is she’s actually pulling Maoridom apart – she’s an absolute trouble maker.”

Rankin said he didn’t think Mutu believed a word she said and would probably “hide behind” a section in the Education Act that affords her the right to speak as the “critical consciousness of society”.

Let’s have more of that please. I’m not one to call for sacking, but standing up and calling out stupid people for the stupid things they say is always a good start.

    If Alasdair Thompson can lose his job for his faux pas then Mutu should definitely lose hers.

      Paul Henry got sacked for less.

    Surprising that a Government department is allowed to put out a report that puts Maori in a bad light. Good on David Rankin, he will of course be shut down by his own people for breaking ranks, but good on him anyway, a ray of hope in a very bleak future for Maoridom in the World.
    South Africa refused to accept the Maori rugby team because it was selected on grounds of race.
    The sooner the Maori elite realize that there is no place in modern society for tribalism with them at the top and there slaves at the bottom. The sooner our society will unite as one people and move into the future.

    Immigration into New Zealand IS racist. But pro-brown, anti white. I had to prove I had ‘skills shortage’ qualification, a job to go to with an approved employer, who had first tried to recruit in NZ.
    I had my Police record checked and proved good health and the use of English to “business” level, for me and the whole family.
    When I arrived, I found that Pacific Islanders don’t have to prove any of this. That’s racist. And don’t give me that ‘historic reciprocal agreement’ bullshit.

  • What really annoyed me today was some Auckland Uni pointy-head defending Mutu’s position as she had an ‘academic right’ to make those statements. He said it as though as though this right was some form of parliamentary privilege. I have never heard of it and if such a right exists then it should be disposed of without trace along with all of the other anachronisms imposed on us by the academia from their ivory tower.

    Just another dumbass radical bitch who looks like she will probably end up running for the labour party (or dumbass harawira who prob put her up to it). What’s interesting is she looks more like (and speaks like) a european. What’s worse is she actually believes what she says to be true – that’s scary. I wonder if her PhD was gifted to her because her argument isn’t that cogent at all.

    Radical extremist – True, her cv wouldn’t get her a job in any other country – pretty useless credentials really.
