More about Hawaiians

One thing that annoys me is that the media inaccurately portrays Hawaiians. Some times we are even portrayed as monsters which REALLY annoys me but people are fighting for our land which means money to them so I can understand why some people like to dry to de-HUMANize us Hawaiians. Some have the AUDACITY to say that we are anti-American.

In any case some Hawaiians have fought for this country including my uncles three who fought in Vietnam and one in the Korean Conflict. Some continue to do so (fight for America) yet some anti-Hawaiians have the audacity to question us.

Here is another example of Hawaiians. In this case they fight to defend and/or protect the U.S. This time in the National Guard:

From left: Sgt. Lehuanani Halemano put her community college education on hold to serve in Afghanistan. Sgt. Daniel Halemano, a full-time guardsman, helped maintain heavy equipment in Afghanistan. Sgt. 1st Class Colbert Halemano Jr. was a forward artillery observer for a year in Iraq. He returned in January. Sgt. Gilbert Pascua drove trucks for the Guard in Afghanistan. He is married to Colbert and Daniel's sister. Spc. Keoni Halemano, an infantryman, also was in Iraq. Colbert is his father and Lehuanani is his sister.


Do we get respect from the U.S.? No and it annoys me. It's a double standard where some Hawaiians respect the U.S. yet the U.S. does not respect us nor does it respect the Hawaiian Kingdom. As a citizen of the U.S. and of the Hawaiian Kingdom and as a registered Republican, I'm annoyed by this stupidity.

Worse... some people don't like it when I discuss this because it makes them feel uncomfortable. People like Jere Krischel who did not even fight for the U.S. He tries to censor us Hawaiians which is really annoying because one of the foundations of the U.S. is freedom as well as life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The latter being key meaning to people like Jere it's okay for THEM to pursue happiness but if and when Hawaiians do they are somehow wrong? I don't think so. NO Double Standards.
