You’re asking me to “play along with their puritanical bullshit.”

John Key: Harawira’s white tirade ‘deeply offensive’  [But not antisemitic!]

By MICHAEL FIELD – Stuff.co.nz

Prime Minister John Key has labelled MP Hone Harawira’s email on white people “deeply offensive” and he wants action from coalition partner the Maori Party.

“Hone has a history of making intemperate and outrageous comments and this one is right up there,” Mr Key told reporters a short time ago.

The Maori Party needed to deal with it.

“Hone Harawira has made a statement that is deeply offensive to a lot of New Zealanders.”

Harawira reacted to an email criticising him for bunking off a work trip to visit Paris by lashing out at white people.

In an email exchange released to Radio New Zealand, Mr Harawira accused “white motherf**kers” of “puritanical bullshit” for expecting him to follow the rules.

“… you’re no better than that w**ker Rodney Hide and the white mofos you complain about,” Mr Mikaere wrote, referring to Mr Hide’s actions in taking his partner on an overseas ministerial trip despite the Prime Minister John Key’s direction against the practice.

“And get off you moral high horse while you’re at it – nobody forced you to be an MP.”

Mr Harawira wrote back starting his email; “Gee Buddy, do you believe that white man bullshit too do you?

“White motherf**kers have been raping our lands and ripping us off for centuries and all of a sudden you want me to play along with their puritanical bullshit.”

Mr Harawira then went on to say how much time and energy he put into fighting for Maori and what a big role his wife Hilda played in that.

“And quite frankly I don’t give a shit what you or anyone else thinks about it. OK?”

Then he added a postscript saying he should feel free to go to the media. More on this story here …
