There's a (foreign) call to protest in Honolulu that stole a Black Lives Matter photo.

The poster reads

The Government does not have the authority to control us!

The right of the people to peaceably assemble and petition the Government for a redress of grievances

(Pic obviously lifted from Black Lives Matter protest including a dude in a Phillies hat, w text reading:

Ku’oko’a Rally (Freedom)

Friday 5 pm Ala Moana Park

The quarantine is illegal! Small businesses have the right to determine their own hours!

Then the kicker:
“Bring signs and bullhorns and aloha”

To which Kumu Hina scorched:

I DO NOT SUPPORT THIS EFFORT!
HEWA LOA!!!!

I know that we are all getting frustrated with having to stay home, avoid hugging and kissing and isolating ourselves...
But I DO NOT THINK THAT THIS IS SOMETHING WE NEED TO DO.
I don’t know who did this announcement but could you please use your own language instead of my/our Kanaka language!!!
If we use Kū’oko’a it would be for freedom of Hawai’i from the United States.
It would not be used in this context so don’t get it twisted. This looks more like cultural appropriation.

Why would any Kanaka leader have our people expose ourselves unnecessarily to COVID19 while it still runs around stealing and taking from our people??

And I believe I see all the Haole Popolo in the photo here. This is not a Kanaka effort, this photo looks like its from a Black Lives Matter event.

I DON’T SUPPORT THIS AT ALL.

Btw...we don’t write stuff like Bring signs, bullhorn and aloha. Das Bullshit. Use your own words dude!

TO ALL OF MY PEOPLE...STAY HOME!!

(To anyone who read this far please know there is no negativity associated with the term Haole Popolo)

2. Theoretically

But nobody reading Hina’s post would be showing up to be used. On the balance I see it as a responsible and necessary post.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion.

3. A Concerted Effort..as usual

but what a perfect time to prey on emotions, and hopefully fill minds full of poppy-cock. Every day is a horror show, but somehow I think Hawaians are better than mainlander's, in seeing through bullsh*t.

5. Governments are permitted to place content neutral (time, manner, place) restrictions

on speech.

As long as they don't target these yahoos, specifically, they can issue health orders governing the size of the crowds, impoase distancing restrictions - even on speech.

6. Yeah, and being wrong about things is kind of

Their wheel house.

What kind of moron would post this?

A far away one.

But Kumu Hina is the one to get the message to Hawaiians. Not everyone but most.

/By Hawaiians I don’t mean people who live in Hawaii, just to be clear.
