Satire attacked in Hawaii

The graphic above is satire of the racist proposal to give special rights to native Hawaiians.

"The Office of Hawaiian Affairs seeks to create its own government via the Akaka Bill. However, the call by the Office of Hawaiian Affairs chair Haunani Apoliana to censor a political cartoon called "Cow Inoa," a play on OHA's Kau Inoa campaign, is giving a hint at what this new Hawaiian government will look like ... one where freedom of speech is squelched and intimidation tactics rule. We have been called the People's Republic of Hawaii before ... now, OHA's helping us to further live up to that moniker.
