Brian & Hannah Tamaki sue NZ Councils & Libraries

PRESS RELEASE

4th April 2024

Brian Tamaki



“Now that we have your attention with the rainbow crossing sagas, I want to highlight the cultural & moral takeover going on in NZ right now. We've struck a raw nerve in Kiwis. Kiwis have had enough of the rainbow-washing going on.  It’s gone too far.  It’s crossed the line when it’s targeting our innocent kids and young people,” states Brian Tamaki.

 

“Kiwis have had a gutful of being force-fed this rainbow madness. It’s forced on our kids in schools, in our libraries.  It’s forced on us in our workplaces, banks and businesses. It’s force-fed to us through our news, TV shows and movies.  It’s forced on us in every sector of our society.  What was once in private, is now loud and proud and pushed into public spaces.”

 

“I do not oppose the freedom of expression that belongs to all, and people’s right to live how they choose.  I have long fought for that. I do not hate or deny their existence. But it shouldn’t be forced on everybody else, and more importantly our innocent children,” clarifies Tamaki.

 

“It’s time for some straight talk. The Rainbow Movement, or Pride Movement, is a political movement.  They are proactively using ratepayers’ and taxpayers’ money to promote and advance their political and ideological agenda.”

 

“We are taking the first steps in curbing this cultural and moral takeover of the Kiwi Way of Life, and we have the councils and libraries firmly in our sights. We are in talks with Barristers and Solicitors preparing for what’s coming.”

 

“For too long Councils & Libraries have abused and wasted ratepayers’ money on Drag Queen Storytime events and disproportionately promoting the Rainbow Movement,” claims Brian Tamaki.

 

“The great deception of the Drag Queens has seen them pull the wool over authorities’ eyes that they are not sexual in front of Kiwi kids. ‘What you are speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.’ These kids are catching onto the innuendo,  it’s not even subtle. These kids are impressionable and vulnerable in their most formative years, and this can have lasting negative impacts for the rest of their lives.”

 

“Our libraries should not be used as rainbow or political recruitment grounds.”

 

“Ratepayers’ money has gone on Rainbow Advisory Councils, Rainbow Crossings, Rainbow Flags, Rainbow buses, Rainbow Games 2024, Pride parades, Pride month events and Drag Queens reading to our kids.  The Auckland Council has financially sponsored this week’s Rainbow Games, Pride Parades, Big Gay Out events and more.”

 

During a cost of living crisis, councils have raised rates this year across the whole country.  Rates have risen by 19.9% in cities such as Hamilton.  In Wellington a 16.4% rise. Aucklanders 7.5%. Napier 23.7%. Gisborne 11.3% and many more.

 

“These cash-strapped councils bleat about how little money they have, yet they are happy to pour our money into the pride ideology.”

 

The Auckland Council website states ‘Auckland Council spent $56,000 in their 2015 annual budget to establish a Rainbow Advisory Panel, a group providing input on issues affecting the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.’

 

Brian Tamaki goes on to say, "How do you explain to a struggling elderly pensioner in Auckland, barely making ends meet, that they have to fork out even more this year for rates, while their hard-earned ratepayers’ money is funnelled into rainbow propaganda and Drag Queen events?"

 

“Local councils fail to fix our roads and potholes, traffic gridlocks, water pipes, and infrastructure, yet without hesitation can fork out $9k for a new Rainbow Crossing on K-Road in Auckland, or $40k on a Rainbow Precint in Cuba Street, Wellington.”

 

Auckland City Council’s website states “Rates support VITAL SERVICES like waste management, maintaining community buildings and playgrounds, emergency management, as well as public transport, pools, public art, and libraries. Auckland Council is an $8-billion enterprise, managing its finances to ensure ESSENTIAL SERVICES and infrastructure are provided for the ongoing wellbeing of our community.”

 

Councils also claim to be “responsible stewards” of community assets.

 

Tamaki continues, “I don’t believe rainbow crossings and Drag Queens are vital or essential services...and I think a lot of Kiwi ratepayers’ will back me up on this. There are far more important issues the money should go on.”

 

“Mayors and their councillors have forgotten their core job descriptions, and until some serious action is taken against them, they will not stop this money squandering. Our Councils have become money launderers for the Rainbow Movement.”

 

“These councils do not properly consult or listen to their employers...which is us, the ratepayers’...so we will be thrashing this issue out in court.  I do not pay rates for it to go on this nonsense. NZ is supposed to be a democracy.  These councils are operating outside of their legal scope.  I’m confident we’ll prove that councils are not supposed to favour one political rainbow viewpoint when they are spending our ratepayers’ money...they are supposed to be politically neutral.”

 

“The Wellington City Council is far from politically neutral in their decision-making with the amount of Green Party & Labour Party councillors around the council table, along with the greenest Mayor ever, Tory Whanau, and her Chief of Staff Nadine Walker who happens to be the partner of MP Chloe Swarbrick.  Not only is our Capital Council rainbow-washed, it’s green-washed too.”

 

“Our councils have been hijacked by this politicised Rainbow Movement, and they are rainbow-washing our communities and targeting our children and youth.”

 

Brian & Hannah Tamaki, and associated Auckland ratepayers, plan to sue the Auckland City Council & its libraries for the misappropriation of ratepayers’ money across the supercity of Auckland.

 

Lawsuits are also being investigated in Wellington, Gisborne, Hastings and Rotorua.

 

In closing, Brian Tamaki says, “This is just the beginning of ratepayers challenging their local Councils and libraries.  Enough is enough.”

 

“We expect a rising of true Kiwis who care that the future of our children’s children is at stake.” 

 

“We are fighting to protect the innocence of our children.”

 

“We ask ratepayers to join our Public Meetings coming soon, as we take the first steps in calling our Councils to account.  We want to hear your views on this abuse of public spending. We will provide an opportunity for other ratepayers to join us in this great pushback.”
