Hawaii’s forbidden cartoon

Identity politics runs amok in Hawaii: This is un-freaking-believable. Andrew Walden reports:

Does free speech exist in Hawaii?

A government department of the State of Hawaii is demanding the retraction of a political cartoon published Jan. 18 on the satirical web site http://www.zeroshibai.com/ and reprinted Jan. 21 on http://www.hawaiireporter.com/ The demands come in response to images and text ridiculing the Office of Hawaiian Affairs’ Kau Inoa campaign as “Cow Inoa.” Kau Inoa, Hawaiian for “place your name” is building a roll of Hawaiians to participate in a Hawaiian tribal government. Haunani Apoliona, writing in her capacity as “Chairperson, Board of Trustees, Office of Hawaiian Affairs” (OHA) in a Jan. 24 statement demands: “The cartoon should be pulled and the secret author publicly identified.” OHA’s backers are calling and emailing businesses demanding they pull their ads from HawaiiReporter.

If you have followed the Native Hawaiian grievance-mongering movement, you won’t be surprised.

I’ve covered Hawaii’s secessionists here, here, here, here, here, and here.

You should know this: Hillary Clinton (D-NY), Barack Obama (D-IL) and John McCain (R-AZ) (see Walden’s update) support this movement and the activists now using their power in Hawaii’s state government to squash their critics using satirical cartoons to fight back.
