What’s Wrong With These Pictures?

announcing their support for the $1.4 billion TMT construction on the sacred mountain of Mauna Kea

Please note the backdrop for the Governor’s announcement is the State seal with the words of King Kamehameha III – “Ua mau ke ea o ka ‘aina i ka pono – The life/sovereignty of the land is perpetuated in righteousness.” The backdrop for the UH officials is what appears to be a mural of Hawaiian hula dancers.
A more accurate backdrop for the above photos would be a very large $ sign.

Where’s the Righteousness?

Where’s the Respect for the Sacred?

Shame: Putting Dollars Before the Sacred! Using Hawaiians as a Prop!
