Hawaiians call Mark Zuckerberg ‘the face of neocolonialism’ over land lawsuits

A few days after Christmas, Mark Zuckerberg shared a series of photographs of his family at their $100m, 700-acre property in Kauai. The Facebook CEO and his wife “fell in love with the community and the cloudy green mountains”, he wrote, and decided to “plant roots and join the community ourselves”.

Two days later, Zuckerberg’s lawyers filed lawsuits against hundreds of Hawaiians who may own an interest in small parcels within the boundaries of Zuckerberg’s estate. The “quiet title” suits, first reported by the Honolulu Star-Advertiser, are used to clarify the often complicated history of land ownership in Hawaii and can result in owners being forced to sell their land at auction. In some cases, defendants are even required to pay the legal fees of the plaintiff – in this case, the world’s fifth richest man.

Zuckerberg’s lawsuits have prompted a backlash from locals who place the billionaire within a long, painful history of western conquest and Native Hawaiian dispossession.

“This is the face of neocolonialism,” said Kapua Sproat, a law professor at the University of Hawaii who is originally from Kauai. “Even though a forced sale may not physically displace people, it’s the last nail in the coffin of separating us from the land.”

    Seems that the State of Hawaii should have more power and authority over the land mass of itself than some rich little creep like Zuckerburg. Exercise their right of eminent domain or other legal structure and kick his a$$ off the island altogether. I can’t even stand seeing pictures of him as well as Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos and George Soros four of a kind liberal maggots.

    Wow. I think liberals have misunderstood the Bible quote: “Don’t let the right hand know what the left hand is doing” to: “Don’t let the right side know what the leftists are doing”. Really??! The left, who pretends to be the champion of the rights of all; another rich liberal trying to take away the property of the poor. This man’s head has blown up. Boycott facebook already.

    Mark Zuckerberg is a bad person. He has been blessed with a great amount of wealth. Rather than using that to benefit humanity he is trying to take the meager existence from others. He should be ashamed of himself.

    Hopefully Mr. Zuckerberg’s boundless greed will soon be followed by a loss of a large amount of his wealth. Sometimes people become so blessed they lose sight of the plight of those around them.

    Now would be a good time for the Hawaiian government to begin revising its laws to protect the average citizen from the super wealthy carpetbaggers who seek to do nothing more than pillage and exploit.

      He fears having “ordinary people” living too close to him and his family. He deserves to suffer from that fear because the bottom line he is an evil NWO liberal.

        It’s amazing how bleeding heart liberals can’t stand being near the people they are supposedly looking out for.
