Hawaiians to Jeff Sessions: ‘We’re Not Just Some Island’

Five months later, on August 21, the collection of islands in the Pacific Ocean officially became the 50th state of the United States.

.

During the years of statehood that followed, thousands of Hawaii citizens served in the military, died and were wounded in wars in Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq, won countless decorations and spearheaded civil rights advancements. Others served with distinction in Congress, particularly the late Democratic Sen. Daniel Inouye, who had lost an arm fighting in World War II with the famed Japanese-American 442nd Regimental Combat Team, ultimately winning the Congressional Medal of Honor.

.

One Hawaii-born American rose to become the president of the United States.

.

But on Thursday, some felt as though the 50th state was being disrespected, relegated to five words: an island in the Pacific.

In an interview with The Mark Levin Show that was later uncovered by CNN, Attorney General Jeff Sessions implied that a judge from Hawaii  which he called simply an island in the Pacific  should not be able to strike down Trumps travel ban.

.

I really am amazed that a judge sitting on an island in the Pacific can issue an order that stops the president of the United States from what appears to be clearly his statutory and Constitutional power, Sessions said.

.

The comments were not only demeaning, it was noted, but also geographically incorrect. The state of Hawaii is not, in fact, an island in the Pacific  it is a stunningly beautiful collection of islands, an archipelago of eight major islands and many islets and atolls. Its wondrous beaches and mountains attract millions of visitors from the U.S. mainland, who dont need passports to visit, and bring in massive amounts of revenue to the U.S. from foreign countries, especially Japan.

.

One of its islands is indeed called Hawaii, but the federal judge that Sessions criticized is based in Honolulu on the island of Oahu.

.

The fact that Sessions didnt even say the states name in his initial remarks was most offensive for some, said Nadine Y. Ando, president of the Hawaii State Bar Association.

.

Excuse me? Ando said in an interview with The Washington Post. We have been a state for 58 years. Were not just some island.

.

The comments were also dismissive of Judge Derrick Watson, an appointed and confirmed federal judge, Ando said, not some outlier judge sitting in the middle of nowhere. While she understood Sessions desire to express his opinions regarding the judges decision, Ando said, its unfortunate that in the process of doing that, he demeaned the entire state.

.

The disparaging statement or as the Honolulu Star-Advertiser called it, Sessions diss of Hawaii, spurred lawmakers, politicians and others who call Hawaii home to defend the 50th state, latching onto the hashtag #IslandinthePacific.

.

Hawaii Attorney General Doug Chin gave a subtle yet scathing response, tweeting a photo of the statute that established Hawaiis statehood.
