Where does your allegiance lie?

January 11, 2008 at 11:57 pm 6 comments

This is a question I pose to those Fijian citizens who have migrated overseas (mainly to Australia, New Zealand, United States and Canada) after the coup’s of 1987, 2000 or before that. A lot of those people have taken up the citizenship of adopted countries.

Where does your allegiance lie? Who do you support? Vague question, but I put this in relation to what is going on in Fiji.

Now I have noted before the likes of people like Thakur Ranjit Singh and Nikhil Singh who praise the RFMF and interim government to no end. No doubt these individuals were strongly against the coup’s of 1987 and 2000. These individuals live in New Zealand and Australia respectively.

Why is this coup different to any of the others. Oh yeah, because Indians are getting a good deal out of it. So its a good thing.

Rhetoric is just a facade. Just like in 1987 and 2000, this coup is about power and greed. About a want to have something that you could not earn. Taking over a government by force for pathetic reasons such as what the minority perceive is foolish.

Lets get back to our two example individuals. Thakur from NZ, Nikhil from Australia. You have adopted a new country, its your new home. Cherish and love the fact your right to support an illegal regime is not downtrodden by the government. Even though the respective countries have taken a strong stand against Fiji. Your right to openly support the thugs in Suva is denied to those who oppose them in Fiji.

The fact is that despite the wholesome support from a lot of expatriates overseas, these retards who go on about “returning our beautiful country to way it should be” will never return to Fiji. They have entrenched themselves in their new countries and they have families in a secure, safe environment. Deep down inside they despise Fiji and think “I’m fucking glad I got out of that hole”. The reality is that these individuals are too lamu to return because they know that fact deep down inside. Even though their heroes are in power, they still know the country is screwed. They are deluding themselves by thinking this. The phrase “our beautiful nation” that is echoed by these lamu individuals is parroted over and over again in the Fiji Times Your Comments section. Don’t let these idiots fool you into thinking that they care about Fiji. They really don’t.

When its convenient to support Fiji such as the coup and Fijian rugby, they are Fijians at heart. Otherwise, they loathe Fiji. You are not a Fijian if all you do is support an illegal regime and a rugby team.

Finally, the issue of dual citizenship. This is a thorny issue. I stand strongly on this issue. Fijian citizens should not be entitled to this. All you are going to get before the next election is a rush of expatriates going to get Fijian citizenship. These individuals will be the balance of power. And unfortunately for those who still live in Fiji, their government will be decided by those who don’t give a stuff about the country and will never return to experience it.

    To be fair TWF there are also the people who have left Fiji but continue to voice their opposition to the current military regime.

    But for those like Nikhil and Thakur these are unhappy persons who have a grudge against the world. They look at things through a coloured window which drives them to support illegal acts and try and reflect a ‘holier than thou’ attitude.

    These are the kind of people who create racialism and impose their biased views from the sanctuary of their “new homes”.

    We should ignore their comments as full of sound and fury but signifying nothing at all!

    That is true Maqa.

    There are some very upstanding former citizens who have left Fiji who oppose this coup. Of course their support is drowned out by big mouths like Nikhil and Thakur who never seem to close their mouthes. If you are an expatriate and do not support the coup, the above does not apply to you.

    The support of these expatriates is needed. Otherwise, you will have a very dedicated body of coup supporters who are expatriates who will try and change the system. We look no further than the two architects of the Charter.

    It is important to note that a coup has wide ranging effects. It is important for to us to remind ourselves (anti-coup people) that the coup supporters overseas will never experience the policies of the interim government.

    Note that Indians are not the only coup supporters who are vocal or that shameful. You have to look no further than New Zealand to find Bainimarama’s family all living here. Then you have “Sydney Steve” (forgotten what station he is off) and “Auckland Amalaini”. Note I called him Sydney Steve similar in the mould of Tokyo Rose who parroted her rants in World War 2.

    Sydney Steve’s real name is Mosese Tagivetaua and he has been in Fiji for the last three months trying to secure some business deal with the illegal government via his cousin Siti Raturala.

    Siti has a permanent slot spewing out rubbish on Mosese’s Saturday morning radio show. Dunno how successfully that arrangement has been in securing him his business deal.

    O Siti kei Tagivetaua me rau veitauri ga! Sa rui levu na masi polo!

    Here’s a question one of you fellow bloggers could answer.

    If dual citizenship were to be granted to the kulinas who have migrated overseas,would they be allowed to vote in our general elections?????????

    If so,they could tip the balance in favour of Chodo +Co.In fact ,if they all were granted dual citizenship,Fijians would be the in the minority once again.

    Maybe this is part of the pig and Chodos master plan to deny us the chance to ever win an election again.

    TWF,could you please enlighten me.

    TWF, you have got it right on the subject of allegiance and 1 was interested to see that you mentioned the Sydney-based racist, coup apologist and foul-mouthed NiKhil Singh as an example. In recent months I have crossed swords with this creature in cyber-space.

    Singh’s modus operand! is to adopt various identities and then blitz popular forums with his blogs, many of them cut and paste jobs. As revealed by the website Fiji Democracy Now, Singh’s persona include Viti Truth Seeker/ Sack of Kaka and Shane White of Australia. You see them on various sites and particularly in the Fiji Times Your Say columns.

    He also operates a blog site on telecommunications and when he makes a posting (invariably a cut and paste from other sources) one of the comments will be a big congratulatory suck-up from “Shane White” which is then acknowledged in the same sugar sweet tones.

    You’re right when you suggest that expatriate Fiji people who support the coup tend to be racist. Nikhil Singh definitely is. As Viti Truth Seeker he talks about being “superior” and he tosses off racial insults about “ignorant” Fijians who are not “rational thinkers” and he runs pieces selectively quoting anthropologists spouting on tribal culture and the like. Only this Sunday, posing in the Your Say column as Shane White of Australia, he wrote that “natives are a waste of humanity and resources.” He’s nothing if not
    consistent.

    As to Nikhil Singh’s feelings of allegiance to Fiji as his own country I have no real personal knowledge, but I can only assume its pretty insincere and cynical just from what he says himself. His letter last July on blogspot Fiji Nub News gives you an idea as it contains such gems as: “Bai pays me a nice commission to lobby over here in Australia” and “Anyway my girlfriend and I are going to Fiji because the rates are so damn cheap.”

    Looks like his allegiance to Fiji is so strong that it just oozes out of him!
