Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, December 15, 2018

We know two things for sure about actor Jason Momoa, he's married to one of the most beautiful women in the world and he knows how to make an entrance. At the premier for Aquaman in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Momoa turned a normally predictable red carpet walk with his wife Lilakoi Moon, who still acts under her birth name Lisa Bonet, and children, Lola Iolani and Nakoa-Wolf, into a cross-cultural event.

I have been looking forward to this movie, possibly more than Endgame (dumb title), and that is a well done haka.

You can still do a Haka? Neat, some forms of toxic masculinity are still cool with people.

Haka can be done by both men and women, but thanks for playing.

There's such a thing as trying too hard, Sitzkrieg.

- some forms of toxic masculinity

Let's just have a division of labor. I'll keep doing haka, as if, and you can keep doing the misogynistic incel posting routine.

Yeah that was a swing and a miss.

"Cultural Appropriation" might have gotten you a little more mileage.

No dice. Momoa has Polynesian blood.

Well I hope it's at least 0.15% or there will be... questions.

The Haka is from the Maori culture of New Zealand, but all I have to say is that he has fun doing it and it is fun to watch - so just enjoy.

Is this the most intense haka EVER? 3,258,764 views Rugby League GBU Published on Nov 13, 2017

I've seen it a few times - apparently it's a part of every New Zealand rugby match.

Every effective warrior culture probably realized psychological warfare is an extension of mental conditioning. Some rituals do have a "Woodbeast or die" quality, and very commonly include drugs, chanting, story-telling and sacrifices.

My dad was a paratrooper in the south pacific. he fought primarily in New Guinea. one of the few stories i ever heard him tell was about these folks. getting ready to start the day and there's a commotion he noticed, a bunch of the fellas grouping up, pointing and talking about something. Maori scouts had come into camp and what everyone was checking out was the sacks of japanese heads they had with them.

I too prefer the works of Leni Riefenstahl.

#13 i saw a guy take over a stage at an anti-vaxxer conference, call them idiots, and launched into a haka.

I saw a side do it at a large paintball event. They screwed up, all choreography, forgot their logistics.

The Hakka is awesome! I love seeing the true essence of a culture and their primitive movements kept alive. Even while being brought forward into the future. There is actually a time and place for such a raw display of aggression even today. It instills a discipline and encourages teamwork. Also,it just looks badass!

This is one of my favorite haka videos. It was at a wedding. That's about all the context I've got, but it's clear to me from watching it that haka has deep cultural and emotional roots for many people.

My young granddaughter loves the scene in "Moana" where the Maui character (Dwayne Johnson) does a short version of the Haka.
