50 Years of Hawaiian Fakehood

SUBHEAD: Obama is in the Matrix and decided on the Blue Pill. Everything is just fine.

Yesterday, while my wife and I joined with about fifty friends in anti-Hawaiian statehood demonstrations in Lihue I, and many other registered Democrats, received an email. It said. Aloha, I thought you might find this interesting. Have a great weekend. Thanks, Brian Schatz Chair, Democratic Party of Hawaii The email included a message from Barak Obama on the meaning of the 50th Anniversary of Hawaii as the 50th state in the USA.

It went as follows.


 It is with great pride that our Nation commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of Statehood for Hawaii. On August 21, 1959, we welcomed Hawaii into the United States ohana, or family. Unified under the rule of King Kamehameha the Great, it was Queen Lili'uokalani who witnessed the transition to a Provisional Government controlled by the United States

As a Nation, we honor the extensive and rich contributions of Native Hawaiian culture to our national character. Borne out of volcanic activity in the Pacific Ocean, a chain of islands emerged that would bear witness to some of the most extraordinary events in world history. From Pu'ukohola Heiau and the royal residence at the `Iolani Palace, to the USS ARIZONA Memorial and luaus that pay tribute to Hawaiian traditions, Americans honor the islands' collective legacy and admire their natural beauty. 

Home to unique and endangered species, active volcanoes, and abundant reefs, the Hawaiian islands actively conserve their distinctive ecosystems with responsible development and a deep-rooted appreciation for the land and surrounding ocean. The Aloha Spirit of Hawaii offers hope and opportunity for all Americans. Growing up in Hawaii, I learned from its diversity how different cultures blend together into one population -- proud of their personal heritage and made stronger by their shared sense of community.  

Our youngest State, Hawaii faces many of the same challenges other States face throughout our country, and it represents the opportunity we all have to grow and learn from each other.

  NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by the virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim August 21, 2009, as the Fiftieth Anniversary of Hawaii Statehood. I call upon the people of the United States to observe this day with appropriate programs, ceremonies, and activities.

 IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this twenty-first day of August, in the year of our Lord two thousand nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and thirty-fourth. BARACK OBAMA


For those who could not bare to read the proclamation, it says in part... "it was Queen Lili'uokalani who witnessed the transition to a Provisional Government controlled by the United States." That seems an awfully neutral way of describing an illegal overthrow of another nation. Obama may have been born in Hawaii, but he certainly is missing something about the sense of the place.

Even Wikipwedia knows better...  
 "Queen Lili'uokalani, was deposed in a coup d'├ętat led largely by American citizens who were opposed to Lili'uokalani's attempt to establish a new Constitution. The success of the coup efforts was supported by the landing of U.S. Marines, who came ashore at the request of the conspirators. The coup left the queen imprisoned at Iolani Palace under house arrest."  
Like all the presidents since Carter, Obama is inside the bubble (or Matrix) or what ever you want to call it. For those deluded people it is still "Morning in America". At least Clinton was able to pass the Hawaiian Aplology Bill in 1993 in commemoration of the 100th year after the overthrow.

A reversible sign held in front of Kauai County building reads on one side "50 Years of Hawaiian Fakehood" and on the other side "200 Years of Hawaiian Nationhood"
