Ngapuhi leader David Rankin gets angry about the mainstream media’s soft-soaping with maori hypocrisy.
He issued the statement below in response to the contrived fashion-following maori furore over statues such as Captain Cook.
Needless to say the mainstream media all ignored it.
That said, David could recount his own mob’s history of invasion, killing and eating numerous vanquished tribes etc. Ngapuhi may well have been the most war-mongering killers of all, not the least as they were first to get their hands on muskets and that was the key to their success.
But that was two centuries ago and knowing Rankin, he’d be the first to admit it.
He’s a regrettably too rare voice of honesty in the maori world of bogus Waitangi claims.
