    The Haole (American Imperialist) have 🚫 illegally occupied the Hawaiian kingdom in gradual stages. They
    brought their religion and used that and their trade relationships they schmoozed their way into the good graces of the Hawaiian Royalty. Think back in history what would it have been like if the US had never gone and overthrown the Hawaiian kingdom? WWII wouldn’t have happened because there wouldn’t have been a US military presence for the Empire of Japan to attack and bring the US into WWII. The Nez Perce Chief Joseph said this which is an accurate analogy of how the Hawaiian 🇬🇧 kingdom was annexed. “A white man came to me and said you have good horses! I would like to buy them from you! I say to him. My horses please me they’re not for sale! The white man leaves much displeased. My neighbor comes to him and the white man says Joseph won’t sell me his horses! My neighbor says Pay me money 💰 and I will sell them to you.” “If ever we owned land this was how the Americans came by our land.”
