Sovereign rights challenged by US Commission on Civil Rights

If Queen Lili'uokalani, the last of the Hawaiian monarchy were alive today, she'd hold a press conference and invite Mariah Carey to sing her latest hit single "Obsessed"

"Delusional, confused and Obsessed," is how the Queen would address the latest absurdity from the US Commisision on Civil Rights in their ongoing attempt to usurp the Akaka Bill, S1011 and the rights of the indigenous people of Hawai'i.

Reiterating their opposition of the Akaka Bill, Commisioners Gerald Reynolds, Abigail Thernstrom, Todd Gaziano, Gail Heriot, Peter Kirsanow, and Ashley Taylor wrote, "We do not believe that Congress has the authority to 'reorganize' racial and ethnic groups into dependent sovereign nations unless those groups have a long and continuous history of separate self governance."

Newsflash commissioners, in 1893, the Kingdom of Hawaii, under the rule of Queen Lili'uokalani was overthrown by the United States. This after centuries of a peace-loving monarchy in the Pacific.

While the Obama Administration and the Department of Justice, along with Native Americans and Alaskan Natives strongly support the core elements of the proposed legislation, the USCCR continues in their rampage against the very people they are supposed to protect.

So will the real USCCR please stand up?

Well folks, these right wing operatives will never stand up and be recognized by the people, because they're busy following their Bush-appointed agenda of neglecting basic human rights and positioning equality towards the priviledged.  All but the two Democratic Comissioners, Melendez and Yaki who opposed the letter to Congress, have been fleecing us in prefered interpretations of civil rights for years now.  

What say you... Can we overthrow these ridiculous clowns?
