A Māori historian says the sort of racist hate speech promoted by alleged Christchurch mosque shooter Brenton Tarrant was what Māori went to war to stop.

Manuka Henare says the killing of 50 people at the two Christchurch mosques on Friday made him think it was as if Adolf Hitler had won.

"And I recall the day in history when Ngāpuhi and other iwi declared war on fascism just ahead of the New Zealand Government and our leaders at this time were adamant that this kind of thinking does not fit Māoritanga," he says.

Dr Henare says a decade ago he was part of interfaith dialogues between church leaders from countries around Asia Pacific, and he believes those meetings should have continued as a way to promote racial and religious tolerance.

Martyn 'Bomber'Bradbury: Last election, Andrew Little looked at the slumping polls 3 moths out from the 2017 ballot and said, 'I can't lead this Party to victory', and in the most unselfish, most progressive political move in NZ history, stood aside to allow Jacinda Ardern to become leader.
The Maaori Party could spoil Jacinda's dreams for a second term
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The Māori Party have selected the exceptionally talented Debbie Ngarewa-Packer as their candidate in the very vulnerable seat of Te Tai Hauāuru and it represents the biggest threat to Jacinda's dreams for a second term than any other political challenge.
Why National's beneficiary bashing is really dog whistle politics
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: National has promised a spiteful range of draconian measures against beneficiaries that have nothing whatsoever to do with helping those on the benefit and everything to do with dog whistling to National's reactionary base.
