President Donald Trump Supporters are expressing their thoughts,
and for some, actions on the latest injunction to stop the “ban on travel” by heading to social media and calling for a travel boycott on Hawai’i. This took place after Attorney General Doug Chin of Hawai’i imposed the injunction just days before executive order No. 13780 was to take place. This order was meant to keep America safe from terroristic attacks.

What these supporters don’t realize, is that the people of Hawai’i, native or not, don’t really care if people from the other states don’t come to Hawai’i. In fact, many local people are encouraging them to put their “money where their mouth is” and prefer them to stay out of Hawai’i. However,
Some poster’s comments took their verbal opinions a little too far, in an uneducated manner. Such is the case with most social media posts. On Instagram, a post saying “… what does hawaii know about being attacked, anyway.” Is being met with replies of a quick history lesson of Hawai’i and its experience with attacks. On December 7th, 1941 on the island of O’ahu in Hawai’i, Pearl Harbor was attacked. This was a world-renowned attack that forced America to completely participate in World War II.
What most people don’t know is that the most significant attack that occurred in Hawai’i was not Pearl Harbor, but the Overthrow of the Hawaiian Kingdom on January 17, 1893.
A coup of American businessmen illegally overthrew the kingdom. This coup also sought help from the U.S. Navy to overthrow the Hawaiian Kingdom. The reigning monarch Queen Lili’uokalani was literally imprisoned and threatened, then forced annexation onto Hawai’i despite a resounding opposition by the majority of the local people.
Hawai’i has also endured military occupation through the Spanish-American War and underwent years of martial law during World War II. Lesser known by most is that many U.S. citizens of Japanese descent and foreign Japanese, such as plantation workers, tourists, husbands, wives, and children in Hawai’i and throughout the U.S. were segregated into internment camps for “Security Purposes”.This includes the most patriotic, such as those that were in military service at the time.
I guess you could say that this stop against the ban of travel that Attorney General, Doug Chin put into place is another way of making sure the U.S. doesn’t break any laws in the U.S. constitution or violate any human rights laws, all while trying to treat all visitors with respect and making sure that this executive order is done right.
Today, it is recognized that the U.S. in fact did wrongfully overthrow the Hawaiian kingdom and the internment camps during World War II were wrong as well. What we can learn from this is that challenging or questioning laws to be, is a core principal of democracy and it will also ensure that laws that are put into place are sound and righteous.

Dear #trump supporters. If you are going to boycott Hawaii why dont you do it the right way and give the Hawaiians back the island? You know the island you invaded and stole from Queen Liliuokalani and then forced to become a US state? Just a thought. #boycotthawaii #makeamericagreat #fdonaldtrump #gop #democrats

⚠️: political post! Hawai'i doesn't know what it's like to be attacked on their own soil? Maybe they should tell that to the 1,102 brave sailors that still lie in the ship underneath water. Sorry fellas, you can pull all the political shiz you want about the travel ban and the judge from Hawai'i blocking it, but remember we are a constitutional republic and that's what makes our country great. Not a dictatorship. If you desire to #boycotthawaii, I'll gladly take any tickets off your hand!
