Na Kekeha Solis

POSTED:



Synopsis: Metta World Peace probably has a future in Hollywood. His punishment should have been far worse.

Aloha mai e nā makamaka heluhelu. Ua nānā aku nei paha 'oukou i ka ho'okūkū pōpō hīna'i o ka Lāpule nei, kahi i kū'ē aku ai nā Leika o ke Kūlanakauhale o nā ‘Ānela i ka Hekili o ke Kūlanakauhale 'o 'Okalahoma.

Ua hahana nō ka pā'ani 'ana o nā 'ao'ao a 'elua mai ka ulele 'ana a i loko o ka hapahā 'elua. I loko o ia hapahā, holo akula 'o Maluhia Honua Meka o nā Leika a pakā akula i ke kinipōpō a komohia ma luna o Serge Ibaka lāua 'o Kevin Durant o ka Hekili. Ma hope mai o ia pakā 'ana aku o kahi Maluhia Honua ka mea i pū'iwa ai ka no'ono'o o kānaka. E ku'iku'i ana ua Maluhia Honua lā i kona umauma me kona pu'upu'u lima 'ākau. A 'o kahi lima hema o ia ala ka pilikia. Ua ho'oku'eku'e ikaika akula 'o Maluhia Honua i ke po'o o James Harden o ka Hekili, a waiho wale ana 'o Harden ma ka papahele o ke kahua. Ua kipaku 'ia aku 'o Maluhia Honua Meka ma muli o kāna hana pēlā. A he kūpono nō ia kipaku 'ia 'ana ona.

'O ka mea 'āpiki, kohu mea lā, 'a'ole i maopopo iki iā Maluhia kāna hana pono 'ole i hana ai. Wahi āna, he piha hau'oli wale nō kona na'au a no laila, e hō'ike wale aku ana 'o ia i ia hau'oli. 'Eā, ke kuhi nei ko 'oukou mea kākau, ke pau ka wā pā'ani pōpō hīna'i o kahi Maluhia Honua, e hiki ana iā ia ke lilo i mea hana keaka kaulana. I ka nānā 'ana aku i kāna hana ma luna o ke kīwī, ua 'ike 'ia aku nō ka holo 'ana o kona lima i ka 'ākau, i mea paha e ho'onui ai i ka holo 'ana, a ku'e ikaika akula kona ku'eku'e lima i ke po'o o Harden. E nā makamaka heluhelu, na 'oukou nō 'oukou e nānā aku i kāna hana ma ka pūnaewele, a e koho 'oukou, he ulia wale nō paha ia, a i 'ole ia, ua hana 'ia me ka mana'o 'ino o loko o ua kanaka lā, e kapa 'ia aku ai paha 'o ia, 'o 'Ino Honua Meka. 'O kekahi mea minamina, 'a'ole i kuhi iki 'o Harden, he hākōkō ka hana i ia pō. Inā i maopopo iā ia, inā paha ua mākaukau 'o ia a hala ana paha kahi ku'eku'e lima o 'Ino Honua Meka.

Akā, e a'o paha 'o 'Ino Honua i ka ha'awina, 'oiai, ua loa'a akula 'o ia i ka ho'opa'i, 'o ia ho'i, e ho'omalu 'ia 'o ia no nā ho'okūkū he 'ehiku, 'a'ole 'o ia e pā'ani. 'Ehiku wale nō ho'okūkū? E ke Komikina David Stern, e kanono ka ho'opa'i! 'Ehiku wale nō ho'okūkū. 'A'ole ia he ho'opa'i e no'ono'o pono ai ke kanaka ma kēia hope aku, 'a'ole e hana hou i ka hana lapuwale.

'O ke kumu paha o ia ho'opa'i 'ano 'ole, inā e lanakila nā Leika a me ka Hekili ma ka puni mua o nā ho'okūkū wae moho, e kū'ē hou ana ia mau hui a 'elua kekahi i kekahi ma ke kahua pā'ani. A ma ia wā e hui pū ai ia mau hui, 'o ia nō ho'i ka wā e pau ai ka ho'omalu 'ia 'ana o Maluhia Honua Meka. He makemake paha ko ke Komikina David Stern e nānā hou i ka hopena ke hālāwai hou ia mau hui 'elua ma ke kahua.

Ua mihi nō 'o Maluhia Honua Meka, akā, 'o ke kanono o ka ho'opa'i ka mea e pono ai, i 'ole 'o ia e hana hou i ia 'ano hana kūpono 'ole.

This angry, bitter, irrational and irrelevant comment by fake-name elijahhawaii (EJH) is typical of what he/she does. I make many online comments to articles in this newspaper. Some of my comments are to articles on topics related to Hawaiian culture or sovereignty (many are on other topics). That's when along comes EJH to write a comment like this one. EJH follows me around like a dog looking for a fire hydrant. My comment was specifically focused on the topic of the newspaper article. EJH's comment had nothing whatsoever to say about the article, and also did not respond to anything I had written in my comment. I guess EJH has no knowledge about the topic. EJH's comment was solely directed at me to attack me as a person, not to respond to what I had said. I don't care; doesn't trouble me; but it shows that EJH is (ab)using this newspaper's comment areas merely for personal attacks and not for serious discussion of issues. EJH complains that I often include webpage URLs, because I have done a lot of research and written at length about a topic; so instead of copy/pasting lengthy essays, I merely cite a URL in case somebody wants more information. My webpage citations are always directly on the topic of an article. Apparently EJH has not done any substantial research or writing, or else does not have a website. EJH apparently has website-envy. EJH might want to get some psychiatric help and some treatment for anger management.

The comment I wrote was sarcasm directed toward one specific element of the article by Kekeha Solis. For the benefit of those who do not speak Hawaiian, I'll explain what I was talking about. There's a famous basketball player whose birthname was Ron Artest. Artest recently changed his name legally to "Metta World Peace." Last week MWP knowingly and with malice threw an elbow at an opposing player, causing injury; and MWP was therefore suspended for several games. Writer Kekeha Solis wrote his Hawaiian language article this week about what happened. But in writing the article, Solis translated "Metta World Peace" to "Maluhia Honua Meka." That's an accurate translation. But it's grossly inappropriate to translate the name of a person or place when referring to that person or place in a different language. And so in my comment I poked fun at the Solis article for doing that. I pointed out that when we speak English we do not translate the name "Kamehameha School" to its English meaning "The Lonely One" School. We do not translate the name of the street "Makuakane Street" to "Father Street." And when I tell people I live in Kane'ohe on Kahuhipa Street, I do not instead say that I live in Bamboo Man (Town) on Shepherd Street. That's what I wrote in my comment.

EJH said nothing whatsoever about that topic. At this point I'll further infuriate EJH by citing a major webpage I wrote that might explain why Kekeha Solis feels impelled to use "Maluhia Honua Meka" as the name of Mr. Metta World Peace (previously known as Ron Artest). Hawaiian sovereignty activists use Hawaiian language as a political weapon. They want to rip out non-ethnic-Hawaiian place names and replace them with Hawaiian ones. Sort of like they want to physically rip out so-called "invasive plants" and replace them with native plants. So perhaps the use of MWP's translated Hawaiian name is related to that impulse to replace non-Hawaiian names with Hawaiian ones. Now here comes the webpage citation: For further discussion of this topic, go to Google and put in all 4 of these keywords: Hawaiian language political weapon

By your own admission you do not speak Hawaiian, and therefore you have no basis to judge how well he (you) speaks Hawaiian any more than you can judge any other person's language ability for a language you do not know. YOur lack of logic is showing again.
