Brown Brother: the words

In response to your requests, here are the words of
Joshua Iosefo’s poetic speech from the previous post:




Brown like the bark

of the palm tree

which supports my heritage.

Brown like the table

at which my family

sits and eats upon.

Brown like the paper bag

containing burgers and fries

by which my people consume.

Brown like the mud

on a rugby field

by which my people play.

Brown like the coat

of the guitar

by which my people strum.

Brown like the sugar or the crust,

the grain or the nut,

whatever ingredient you want

to use to mix up

and around.

You see, my brother,




My demographic is

high school cleaning ladies,

fast food burger-making,

factory box-packing,

rubbish truck drivers,

bus drivers, taxi drivers, sober drivers

and living-off-the-pension joy riders.

I am a dropout.

I hate science, maths, English,

love PE, music, dance and drama.

I play rugby. No –

I’m pretty good at rugby.

And if I am lucky

my future in rugby

might be sealed,

not to reveal

my flaws in education

which are faulty

because hey,

who needs to be able

to quote Shakespeare

if you can play rugby?

I will probably never graduate,

and if I do I will be the first —

either by myself or with a baby

in, or beside, me –

victim of teen pregnancy

with a guy in high school

I thought was skux.

(Which really sucks.)

You see, when push came to shove

he just couldn’t pay the bucks.

While I was focusing

on this relationship

I was trying to get my

NCEA 1, 2 and 3

purely on luck.

Now I am stuck

in the muck

trying to scrub

my skin with Lux

soap, trying to scrub

away the fat

that I have added

to the brown statistic.

While my mother

is a gambler

and my father

is an alcoholic

I will always blame

the government

and everybody else around

me, but never myself.





And whenever someone tries

to breach my comfort zone

or whenever I don’t

have anything else to say

in defence in an argument

I’m just gonna say

that “you’re a racist”;

that your words are a mockery

to my skin tone and my colour.

Oh, but brown brother

you were doing that

the day you performed Cinderella,

or Bro Town, Sione’s Wedding,

and do I have to mention… the GC?

Now I don’t mean to condescend –

I mean, these shows are great, don’t get me wrong –

but can anyone explain:

Will there ever be a time

when our representation goes deeper

than putting our own people to shame?

Will the stereotype

of an illiterate, misbehaved,

unintelligent Polynesian

still be the same?

Will it ever change?

Or are we still going to sell ourselves short

for a few seconds of fame?

Are we not capable

of an art form

that is thought-provoking

or seen as a form

of intelligence?

Or are we going to keep

to our low standards

of what we feel

is “culturally relevant”?

Instead of mocking our foreign traditions

we need to start being real

about the world that we live in,

like our fight against drugs,

or our fight against violence,

or our fight against what reasonable force is

with our kids,

or how statistically

Maori and Pacific Islanders

are low academic achievers,

brown brother.

Now I’m not saying

that we need to forget

our culture in order to gain,

for we are all the same.

I’m just saying

that I’m sick and tired

of my people feeling

that they belong

at the bottom of the food chain,

brown brother.

Are we not more

than an F.O.B. —

immigrants from the islands

in search of a J-O-B?

Are we not more

than the eye can see?

Can we not move

mountains from point A to point B?

Are we not more

than assets to the 1st XV?

Are we not more

than gamblers at a pokie machine?

Are we not more

than [jandals and golden teeth?]?

Are we not more

than our gamblers at the T.A.B.?

Are we not capable

of attaining a bachelor’s,

a master’s, or a PhD?

Brown brother – look at me!

You can do all things through Christ —

Philippians 4:13 —

you are more than capable.

And I don’t say that

just to make you feel better,

I say that

because I know,

because your creator told

me to tell you so.

You will go places,

you will tell stories,

so do not feel alone –

for your God,

your family and your home

will forever be inside

the marrow of your bones.

So do not fret,

do not regret,

because wherever you go

you take us with you,

brown brother.

Do not be afraid to be the first —

the first to graduate,

the first to climb,

the first prime minister or

the first good [wife?],

brown brother.

Do not be afraid

to be the change —

not a change in skin tone

or colour,

but a change in mindset.

From one brown brother

to another.

Thanks to Michael for transcribing.
I’ve been chatting to Josh Iosefo on Facebook and
hope he’ll come here and fill in the gaps in my (ie his) script.

Joshua Iosefo, Pasifika, Treatygate

Maori need leaders like this

Please watch this extraordinary speech by Samoan Niuean New Zealand schoolboy Joshua Iosefo. It’s something everyone interested in race relations should see.

As a professional speaker and former Toastmaster, I’ve seen a lot of speeches in my time, right up to world championship level.

But few have touched me like this poetic ‘spoken word piece’.

TV3’s John Campbell obviously felt the same way, and featured a re-shot, slickly edited, but more clinical version of it on his show.

I prefer this raw version. It’s Joshua giving his speech live to an assembly of his Mt Roskill Grammar School peers.

Most heartening to me is the standing ovation he well and truly earns from his ‘brown brothers’.

Our Pacific citizens seem to have a more positive, law-abiding attitude than Maori.

Pasifika people are 7% of New Zealanders and commit 11% of the crime — not much more than their share of the population.

Maori, meanwhile, despite being massively more indulged by the state than their Polynesian cousins, make up 15% of the population and commit 49% of the crime.

Could Joshua’s attitude — and the wildly popular reception to his message — explain the difference?

Thanks to James Clark for painting such a glowing picture of ‘Brown Brother’ that I just had to interrupt my day and watch it.

For those who requested the words, I’ve posted them here.


What if the Hauhaus had won?

When today’s Griever Maori complain about land confiscations, they conveniently forget a few things:

  1. The rebels breached the Treaty when they waged war against the Queen.
  2. They’d been warned they’d lose their land if they did so.
  3. Much of that land was returned — or compensation paid (unnecessarily in many cases).
  4. If the Maori had won, they would have confiscated a lot more than land!

The above clipping is from page 95 of The First Colonist, Mike Butler’s book about his great-grandfather, Samuel Deighton:

Four hundred anti-pakeha Maoris formally surrendered at the junction of the Waiau and Wairoa rivers in March or April 1866. Samuel Deighton took the oath of allegiance.

“Captain Deighton and his clerk sat at a table … a Union Jack flag was flying overhead, and as each native came forward he bowed to the flag, took the oath of allegiance to the Queen, and sat down … Loyal chief Pitera Kopu said:

‘For your offences your lands are confiscated, but you will not be landless; the government will allot you reserves, which will be Crown-granted to you for your use and occupation’.”

That last quote came from Thomas Lambert’s The Story of Old Wairoa and the East Coast District, North Island, New Zealand, page 591.


Pakeha merciful says loyalist chief

This cutting comes from Mike Butler’s book The First Colonist about the life of his great-grandfather, Samuel Deighton.

Deighton was the first colonist to step ashore at the first settlement, Petone.

For the next half-century he was involved in many defining events of our early history, including fighting the Hauhaus on the East Coast.

In a letter he relates this warning by loyal Maori chief Pitera Kopu to 400 defeated rebels at Te Kopane, near Wairoa, in 1866.

(Did you know that only a minority of tribes rebelled against the Crown, and that most tribes remained loyal?)

Kopu makes the remarkable point that “the tikanga of the Pakeha was one of aroha (mercy)”.

He was therefore restrained from imposing the more traditional Maori punishments of enslavement, death and devourment.

I’ll soon be submitting my question for a ‘one vote/fix all’ referendum.

This will demand a Colourblind State, where all government funding and representation must be based on need, not race.

Meanwhile, my own search for funding for the Treatygate public education campaign goes on.

Thanks for anything you can spare — and a big thank you to those who’ve already contributed.

Rosemary McLeod, Treatygate

Rosemary McLeod: you can be privileged and still impoverished

In today’s Dominion Post, Rosemary McLeod confuses privilege with failure to make the most of a privilege.

Just because Ngati Tama (the Taranaki tribe that found fame unleashing genocide on the Moriori) squandered its $20 million Treaty settlement, doesn’t mean it wasn’t lucky to get it.

Just because Maori remain at the bottom of all the social statistics, doesn’t mean they haven’t benefited disproportionately from the state’s largesse.

What it does mean is that all ‘compensation’, all those welfare payments, all those race-based programmes they keep demanding, don’t appear to be working.

That’s because so much Maori poverty is cultural and moral poverty. Clearly that culture and those morals need to change.

In the past, Rosemary, like most of my opponents, has also confused racism with criticism. They’re very different things.

Rosemary: get your high-fashion Welly liberal eye patch off and look at both sides of the story.

And don’t call me pink 🙂


The stories so far


For a campaign designed to build over two years, the first week’s coverage of the fundraising phase has been pleasing.

Here are 20 print and TV stories I’m aware of, roughly in chronological order:

  1. Elocal.
  2. Callum Fredrics in Critic.
  3. Mentioned in despatches by Bryce Edwards in the Herald.
  4. David Farrar’s Kiwiblog.
  5. Laura McQuillan for TV3 online.
  6. Tini Molyneux on Te Karere.
  7. Kiwiblog again
  8. Rod Vaughan in NBR online (producing the most hits for a single story in the site’s three year history)
  9. Vaughan/NBR online again — this time an exclusive for subscribers only.
  10. Evan Hardin in the Southland Times.
  11. Vaughan Elder in the Otago Daily Times.
  12. Chris Trotter in the Dominion Post.
  13. Trotter in various other papers including the Taranaki Daily News.
  14. Trotter’s blog, Bowalley Road.
  15. Tahu Potiki in the Christchurch Press.
  16. Simon Dey in the Sunday Star-Times.
  17. Edwards in the Herald in despatches again.
  18. And again.
  19. With Julian Wilcox, Joris de Bres and Ella Henry on Maori TV’s Native Affairs.
  20. Rosemary McLeod in today’s Dominion Post.

The left-wing blogs are doing their bit by viciously attacking me in an attempt to distract from my message.

The neutrals tell me it just makes them more curious.

Abuse from the Grievers is always a sure sign that they’re rattled, and that my ‘bunker-busters’ are cutting through.

One lovely chap called Nick Dale even describes me as “New Zealand’s Madman”. Well, you can’t win ’em all.

Meanwhile funders great and small have been building up quite a fighting fund. We need lots more, but if one of these kind donors is you, I thank you for what you’re doing for our country.

(I’ve got you all parked in an ever-more-bulging folder to thank in person when I can.)

I’ve also found two excellent trustees to provide managerial oversight, so can now register the trust.

Thanks to both of you, who I’ll be proud to name if you give me permission.

Rebels were warned they'd lose their land

If you’re wondering why so many of my posts are about media coverage, that’s because I’m still very much in the fundraising stage of the Treatygate/Colourblind State campaign.

I want to prove to potential funders that the snowball that elocal magazine set in motion with its Treatygate story can build into an avalanche capable of terrifying the government into obeying the will of the people.

So the campaign proper has yet to begin.

But here’s a taste of the sort of historical detail I’ll be revealing.

It’s from a letter written by Governor Sir George Grey to the rebel Waikato chiefs in 1863.

There’s masses more where this came from.

Chris Finlayson, Mike Butler, Ngai Tahu, Treatygate

Runaway gravy train: 11 claims by 1920, over 2000 now

The Dominion Post has published this excellent  letter from author and journalist Mike Butler.

Mike is one of a team of researchers who’ve been advising me on Treaty issues for the past year.

His file of all Treaty settlements since 1989 on Muriel Newman’s NZCPR site is the most comprehensive I’ve seen.

In supporting my Colourblind State referendum, Mike points out that

Treaty Negotiations Minister Chris Finlayson calls Mr Ansell’s campaign “nuts”, but in his rush to get through a pile of settlements, he seems unaware that major claims were settled before 1960.

and that

With 2034 claims lodged by 2009 but only 11 claims brought to Parliament in 1920, it’s clear that now money is the motivator.

Ngai Tahu’s ongoing rort

  • 1867 — Ngai Tahu Full and Final Settlement 1
  • 1906 — Ngai Tahu Full and Final Settlement 2
  • 1944 — Ngai Tahu Full and Final Settlement 3
  • 1973 — Ngai Tahu Full and Final Settlement 4
  • 1998 — Ngai Tahu Full and Final Settlement 5
  • 2012 — Ngai Tahu Not So Full and Final 17% Top-up.

Thanks Mike for all your great work and support.

Brian Priestley, Treatygate, Waitangi Tribunal

Ngai Tahu advisor resigned over one-eyed Waitangi Tribunal

Those of you who remember The Fourth Estate TV show from the 1980s will remember legendary media critic Brian Priestley MBE as a relentless seeker of truth and balance.

Mr Priestley had to say about the Waitangi Tribunal:

“Years ago I attended several sessions while advising the Ngai Tahu on public relations for their claims.

It would be hard to imagine any public body less well organised to get at the truth.

There was no cross examination.

Witnesses were treating with sympathetic deference.

The people putting the Crown’s side of things seemed equally anxious not to offend.

In three months I don’t think I was asked a single intelligent, awkward question.

I should have been.

I resigned because I am basically a puzzler after the truth and not a one-eyed supporter of causes.”

Thanks to Colin Rawle for this quote from a story headed Ngai Tahu claim: too little critical analysis in Wellington’s Evening Post of April 3, 1998.

Chris Trotter, Treatygate

Trotter: Treatygate could have 'huge ramifications'

‘Treatygate could have huge ramifications’ says commentator Chris Trotter in yesterday’s Dominion Post, Otago Daily Times, Waikato Times, Taranaki Daily News, Timaru Herald, and Greymouth Star.

And on his own blog, where he helpfully includes my eye-patched photo of Che Guevara impersonator and Exaggerator-General Tariana Turia.

Those who read Chris regularly will know that he can be quite schizophrenic in his views.

With Don Brash, he could praise him to the heavens one week, and lash him the next.

But on racial favouritism, I’ve found him to be consistently opposed. He supported the goals of the Coastal Coalition in fighting to keep our coastline in Crown ownership.

He has always treated me respectfully in his columns, despite occasionally damning me as dangerous.

I was impressed that he once had the courage to stand up for ‘Mr Ansell’ on the blog of particularly vicious lefty Scott Hamilton, when I dared to suggest that Maori were now more a religion than a race.

I thought this current article was fair, except for the ending.

I have written to assure Chris that I will not be accepting any money from the current incarnation of the National Party.

(And I think if he checks with Mr Key — and especially with Mr Finlayson! — he’ll find that there’s little appetite in the party to offer me any. :-))

I do agree with Chris that it’s possible the Constitutional Review will assist National — if its biased Constitutional Advisory Panel is left to proceed unchecked.

Unless they are forced to obey their stated aim, they are bound to produce a report claiming that a majority of New Zealanders want a Treaty-based written Constitution, and to retain the Maori seats.

That’ because they intend to break their founding promise and not go anywhere near the majority of New Zealanders.

A lady from their secretariat (located in the Justice Ministry, of all places) told me that they had no plans to hold any public meetings because “some people might cause trouble”.

(As if they’re not causing enough by promoting separatism.)

My spies inform me that the Panel has already conducted dozens of clandestine meetings with groups that share their separatist agenda, and are studiously ignoring those who don’t.

Like, for example, me.

I asked to speak to co-chair Dr John Burrows — the only one I thought we, the people, might be able to trust — and he said he would try to get back to me in a couple of weeks (note the ‘try’).

That was many weeks ago. He doesn’t appear to be trying very hard.

I will therefore soon be exposing him as a Treatygater.

Chris doesn’t agree with me, but I think the currently anonymous leader of the Labour Party might consider taking advantage of the groundswell of support that will be engendered by the Treatygate/Colourblind State campaign.

(If not David Shearer then maybe David Parker, who was very strong in the Marine and Coastal Areas debate.)

Labour since the days of the dangerous Geoffrey Palmer has been the lesser of two evils in the appeasement of Griever Maori.

Their Foreshore and Seabed Act was far less damaging to this country than National’s Marine and Coastal Areas Act will be.

Helen Clark rightly refused to sign the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.

John Key, on the other hand, was happy to appease his separatist mate Pita Sharples with an airfare to New York, so he could sign the DRIP before we found out.

The apparition that is David Shearer could actually become visible and popular if he were to stand with 80% of New Zealanders against racial favouritism.

It would differentiate him from Key over an issue that is going to snowball into an avalanche come the next election.

It would be one issue where the public would be solidly behind him.

Chris Trotter thinks he should, but won’t, citing Labour’s hatcheting of Phil Goff after his ‘Nationhood’ speech.

But that was back when race relations was not the hot potato issue that it soon will be again.

If Shearer did stand with the 80% (the number who consistently vote against Maori wards), would Key then be forced to flipflop to match him?

Might John Key ditch the Maori separatists and promote a Colourblind State, even before my referendum at the 2014 election?

What do you think?

Thanks for all the donations in recent days. Even the smallest amount is greatly appreciated.

It has not been an easy year working full-time on this unpaid, but I am greatly encouraged by the level of support now.

Particularly heartwarming have been the many emails and blog comments from Achiever Maori.

You guys ‘get’ that I want the best for all New Zealanders, very much including Maori, and I appreciate that more than you know.

NBR, Treatygate

NBR online: record response to Treatygate story

Rod Vaughan tells me his article on Treatygate has produced the most feedback of any story in the three year history of NBR online.

He will soon be doing a follow-up story that will reveal details of a Maori friend’s similar campaign against the Grievers, and my approach to a leading lawyer about mounting a court challenge to the legitimacy and shonky dealings of the Waitangi Tribunal.

Tariana Turia, Treatygate

Turia's 'holocaust': a settler mum's view

As I told Te Karere yesterday (and they wisely left out of their state-sponsored hatchet job on me), there were numerous events from the annals of old Taranaki that a more honest Maori leader than Tariana Turia could, at a stretch, have described as ‘holocausts’.

One was the massacre of one-third of the Taranakis by the Waikatos in 1831.

Another was the 1835 genocide of the Chatham Islands Moriori by 900 Taranaki survivors of the aforementioned massacre.

Both of these ‘holocausts’ took place before the arrival of the supposedly murderous Pakeha.

Afterwards, there were the many barbarous atrocities perpetrated by rebel Maori against innocent settler families like the Gilfillans and the Gascoignes.

More on those in due course — including the murder of the Lavin family in Poverty Bay, whose children were thrown in the air and impaled on Hauhau bayonets.

But for now, here is an illustration of a poem written by a terrified Taranaki settler mother (published in the Wellington Independent of March 22, 1861).

If you’re pressed for time, go straight to verse three.

As one who knows the terror of writing, let alone rhyming, to a deadline,  I can only stand in awe of her mental strength.

Now back to Tariana Turia’s hollow holocausts…

What was the death toll from the eviction of illegal squatters at Parihaka?

Precisely zero.

Oh yes, there was bloodshed: a small boy’s foot was accidentally trodden on by a trooper’s horse.

(That boy grew up to be the great Achiever Maori and Minister of Health, Dr Sir Maui Pomare.)

Hopelessly one-eyed Tariana Turia is the Treatygaters’ Exaggerator-General.

She is prepared to tell the complete opposite of the truth to gain support.

(Another of her fantasies is that Maori have been in New Zealand for thousands of years — a total fabrication.)

As you well know, Tariana, there certainly were holocausts involving Taranaki.

And they were perpetrated by your forebears, not mine.

Thanks to Trina for sending in the poem, and Brenda for the beautiful illustration.

Constitutional Advisory Panel, Treatygate

Red eye patches = one-eyed Treatygaters

The eye patch in this logo represents the pro-Maori-separatist bias of the New Zealand political, bureaucratic, academic, judicial, legal, media and iwi elites.

I intend to put red eye patches on all the con artists from these various elites who have sullied the good names of your forebears, and robbed you and your children of your right to understand your true history.

(Not to mention billions of your hard-won dollars.)

If we don’t do something soon, your one-eyed appeaser government will soon be saddling us all with a written Constitution, based around the bogus English version of the Treaty of Waitangi.

When this happens, New Zealand as you know it will be over. If you lack the required millilitre of Maori blood that entitles you to state favours, you will officially be a second-class citizen.

You may be horrified to learn that this process is already well underway.

The racially-rigged Constitutional Advisory Panel is right now conducting clandestine meetings with groups likely to support their agenda.

And it’s pointedly refusing to have anything to do with that great Griever occupational hazard, the New Zealand public.

Evidently, they will not be holding public meetings because “some people might cause trouble”.

This one certainly intends to.


A challenge to Achiever Maori, honest media chiefs, and all New Zealanders with a spine

Our fathers and their fathers (including the fine men of the Maori battalion) fought and died for this country.

Their fathers before them built this modern nation from scratch — with little help from the ancestors of the ungrateful separatists who now demand the fruits of that pioneering labour.

Our mothers and their mothers and grandmothers suffered unspeakable agonies in the cause of building New Zealand and keeping it free.

Have we, their descendants, become so spineless that we’re prepared to surrender that country, step by sneaky step, to a small clique of inter-related, separatist moneygrubbers — for fear of being called a name?

(By actual racists?)

Will the protestors who marched against apartheid in a foreign land stand idly by as the separatist creed takes root in their own?

I challenge all media to poll their readers on whether they want New Zealand to be a colourblind state, free of all forms of racial favouritism.

Just ask them.

If they don’t, then fine.

But if they do, then woe betide those media chiefs (I’m talking to you, Bernadette Courtney of the Dominion Post)  who ignore the voices of those who keep them in business.

You will soon find yourselves paraded in other media wearing a red eye patch to signify your bias and your membership of the Treatygate brigade.

And woe betide our parliamentary dictator Key and his chamber of Chamberlains if he does not reactivate the democracy that he and his predecessors have so shamelessly suspended.

It is time our representatives got the message that the game’s up and they must start obeying the will of the people.

I challenge Achiever Maori (those who just want to be treated as equal New Zealanders) to tell their Griever Maori cousins: “You do not speak for me!”

Stand up and prove to us all that Achiever Maori (honest, law-abiding Maori who are quietly and proudly getting ahead under their own steam) outnumber Griever Maori (the motley descendants of the minority rebel chiefs of the 1860s who knowingly breached the Treaty and were punished accordingly) — professional Grievers who have twisted the Treaty out of shape for their own personal gain.

Prove that and the mana of the Mana and Maori Parties will evaporate.

Prove that and the reputation of Maori among your fellow New Zealanders will soar from the basement in which it now resides — just as it soared in the days of the Maori Battalion.

And that, I hope, will be a major by-product of the Treatygate/Colourblind State campaign.

This is not about race. It’s about attitude. It’s about shaking off the selfish tribalism that has afflicted all races, mine very much included.

Generations of politicians have managed New Zealand poorly. We’re not a rich country any more.

If we’re going to stop the slide, the only way is to pull together, not apart.

TREATYGATE — Time to Expose the Con

 Wake Up New Zealand, We’re Being Conned!

by John Ansell

Photo of yours truly in the church yard at Russell pointing to a headstone that neatly negates the latter day lie that Ngapuhi chiefs did not cede sovereignty in 1840:


A friend asked me recently, “Do you think truth still matters in New Zealand?”

I froze.

I couldn’t give him the answer he wanted.

Because for too many members of the New Zealand elite,  certainly including state Treaty historians, the answer is no.

Evidence-based critical thinking is out. Ideology-based wishful thinking is in.

We have become the Land of the Long White Lie.

Telling the truth in New Zealand can get a stroppy copywriter into a power of trouble.

Last year I fumed to a reporter, no doubt after yet another holocaustic exaggeration by a neotribal extortionist demanding my water or flora or sky, that Maori had gone from the Stone Age to the Space Age in 150 years and had yet to say thanks.

For pointing out this irrefutable fact, I was roasted by Rosemary McLeod, disowned by Don Brash, and honoured by an anonymous brown supremacist with my very own Facebook page ‘John Ansell is a Racist F***wit’.

However, I was also contacted by a Maori friend, who gleefully trumpeted how clever his people had been to make such stellar progress, and, in the absence of my forebears, thanked me most profusely.

These two opposite reactions caused me to divide Maori into two broad groups, which I call Achievers and Grievers.

The Achievers I admire very much, especially those who – sadly – feel they have to escape to Australia to live the lives of equal New Zealanders.

But the Grievers I can’t abide.

They clearly descend from the ethically-flexible rebel minority who breached the Treaty in the wars of the nineteenth century, and their inflated sense of entitlement has been costing the rest of us dearly.

It is a charming but potentially fatal flaw of New Zealanders that we want to be nice to people at all costs.

Unfortunately there is a fine line between niceness and cowardice.

Being nice to Griever Maori can be very costly indeed – especially when the iwi elite are aided and abetted in their extortion attempts by all the other elites– the political, bureaucratic, academic, judicial, legal, and media.

The approach of successive governments since the early seventies can be summed up by a word most commonly associated with the late thirties: appeasement.

Consider the Evidence

  • We’ve had prime ministers inventing Treaty principles out of thin air, forging unnecessary alliances with Maori separatists, and surrendering our beaches so they can be handed to iwi in secret by their very own tame minister.
  • We’ve had a corrupt Waitangi Tribunal refusing to pay researchers whose findings do not support their racist fantasy, and a Race Relations Commissioner who instructs councils to create special seats for one race only.
  • We’ve had historians hushing up the 1989 discovery of the final English draft of the Treaty when they realised that Hobson included “all the people of New Zealand”, not just Maori.
  • We’ve had activist judges pretending that this 1840 sovereignty-for-protection deal was an equal partnership between the world’s then-greatest empire and dozens of warring stone age tribes that the British had saved from cannibalism, slavery and extinction.
  • We’ve had battalions of lawyers making fortunes from bogus claims, with one of those lawyers now the minister in charge of rubber stamping those claims. [This sentence was left out of the article for some reason – possibly legal.]
  • And we’ve had an editor of a major daily who refused to run an entirely factual election ad asking if you’re fed up with pandering to Maori radicals, yet was happy to cite free speech in defending a cartoon that compared welfare minister Paula Bennett with Nazi death camp doctor Josef Mengele.

On second thoughts, appeasement is too wimpish a word for such a sustained and orchestrated con.

The only word that cuts the mustard is TREATYGATE.

The elite’s methodology is clear…

The Treatygate Con

  1. Get state academics to rewrite New Zealand history as a fantasy novel, where the Maoris are the goodies and the British the baddies.
  2. Get state schools and universities to indoctrinate New Zealanders with this fake history.
  3. Get the bogus historians to slam past historians as unreliable (even those who witnessed the actual events or interviewed those who were there).
  4. Get the state media to peddle the fake history to stoke Maori grievance and Pakeha guilt.
  5. Get iwi to fake claims to right fake wrongs.
  6. Set up a state tribunal to hear these fake Maori claims.
  7. Pay senior lawyers to represent Maori, and junior lawyers to represent the Crown.
  8. Give the tribunal sole  power to interpret the Treaty.
  9. Let the tribunal approve claims based on pure hearsay.
  10. Make all Treaty-related documents as hard to find, and hard to read, as possible.
  11. Brand as ‘racist’ anyone who questions any Maori entitlement.
  12. If enough people object, threaten a race war.
  13. To continue the resource grab indefinitely, entrench a Treaty-based, Bolivian-style constitution where indigenous people are more equal than others.
  14. Pretend that Maori are indigenous to New Zealand, when they sailed here just before the Europeans, and suppress the mounting evidence that other races got here first.
  15. Pretend at all times that Maori remain a separate race, even though they’re all now part-Pakeha.

For the last year I’ve been studying Crown-Maori history intensively with the help of nine authors who have written more than thirty books on the subject.

The scale of the Treatygate fraud is massive and reaches into every agency of the New Zealand state.

But What Can We Do?

It will take money, but I believe the secret of success is a powerful public education campaign using the plainest of English, rolling out one fascinating fact, one ad or poster at a time.

The goal is to get sheepish Kiwis, ‘the Passionless People’, to understand what has been done to them, and to tell their politicians, “We’re mad as hell and we’re not going to take it any more!”

If we can make Treatygate a Top Three issue when the big parties do their polling, then our leaders will have no choice but to listen and act.

Here’s the plan…

How to Defeat the Con

  1. Launch Colourblind New Zealand, and set a goal to lock in one law for all by December 2014.
  2. Raise a $2 million fighting fund so the politicians know we’re able to embarrass them.
  3. Petition for a referendum at the 2014 election. Question: “Do you want New Zealand to be a Colourblind State, with one law for all, and no racial favouritism of any kind?”
  4. How to make the PM obey the referendum result? Run lots of bold Treatygate ads telling voters just who has been conning them, and how.
  5. If media refuse to run these ads, use rival media to expose them as part of the con.
  6. Bombard government MPs with instructions from their voters to obey their will.
  7. Support local body campaigns on Maori wards (typically attracting an 80% NO vote).

With your support I hope to work full-time on this project until New Zealand is a Colourblind State.

The racially-rigged Constitutional Advisory Panel has already begun the process of changing the constitution by stealth, meeting mainly with Maori groups in contravention of its pledge to meet a wide range of New Zealanders.

So there’s not a moment to lose.

Because truth does matter.

This is not a religious or political party-driven campaign.

I simply want the government to give us the racial equality that the Treaty promised.

John Ansell calls himself a ‘conviction copywriter’, who hates selfish politicians, and is known for distilling political concepts into the plainest of English.

He created the ‘Iwi/Kiwi’ billboard series for National in 2005, two award-winning radio campaigns for Labour in 1987 and 1993, and in 2011 fell out with ACT over his proposed press headline ‘Fed up with the Maorification of Everything?’

He sees the racially-rigged National-Maori Constitutional Review as a major threat to our country and has founded Colourblind New Zealand to see if a referendum, reinforced by a hard-hitting public education campaign, can succeed where politicians have failed to halt the appeasement of Griever Maori.


The latest water rights issue where Maori are simply extorting ‘free’ shares from asset sales under the artificial privileged race umbrella is nothing short of racial abuse.

To quote Muriel Newman’s NZCPR:

“Another myth perpetrated by tribal leaders is that the first settlers ‘owned’ the whole country. This is totally illogical and a complete fabrication.

“New Zealand’s small population did not ‘own’ the whole country. In the days before private property rights were established by the rule of law, people ‘owned’ what they could defend.

“Common areas like mountains and wilderness areas, the foreshore and seabed, rivers and lakes, were not ‘owned’ by anyone but were used by all.

“The same goes for resources — minerals, the sea, the air, our water, wild animals and plants, and other common goods.”

When John Ansell approached elocal with Treatygate, I decided to run his story on the basis that Maori continue to have a privileged NZ media platform to expound their radical views and it’s time the NZ race have their say.

My planned ad campaign will not happen unless a whole lot of Kiwis like you are prepared to dig deep to save your country.

If a lot of us give a little, and a few give a lot, we can stop the professional grievers and their ‘useful idiot’ appeasers in their tracks.

Please give whatever you can afford, and send this link to everyone you know.
