Ken Conklin's radar

website:

A website which opposes the Statehood of Hawaii has apparently gotten some quasi-governmental support: “Statehood Hawai’i is proud to partner with the Hawai’i Council for the Humanities.” http://statehoodhawaii.org/ The stridency of opposition to Statehood on this website is somewhat masked, but can be clearly seen by clicking on the section entitled “Video mo’olelo.” The minutes of some meetings of the official statehood commemoration commission can be downloaded, and clearly show the fear and veiled threats that any attempt to hold Statehood celebrations at the Palace would be met with disruptive protests. The minutes are at: http://statehoodhawaii.org/wp/index.php/committee-and-program/
What good is statehood if we cannot participate in public engagement without negative accusations just because I represent independent viewpoints. I think it is important for Ken Conklin to present his perspective.]]>
