Kind of telling what the Free Graham site displays or fails to display on their
main page-they have the usual attention grabbers, quotes, and continue their homage
and association with the Peltierites.
If you want to see what they have to say regarding Graham’s conviction you need to click
on a link that says something about latest news, almost as though it is an afterthought,
or an embarrassment.
Once there it struggles to make a few inane points and even attempts to disqualify
the conviction by implementing a quote of Annie’s-failing to note that in the context
they employ it it avoids the obvious that Annie wasn’t talking about those who step out
of the bounds of tradition and in doing so not only set themselves apart but beg justice
It is at best a blatant illustration of the anemia that infects their entire movement,
it lacks the iron that engenders strength and well being, the iron that exists in truth.
Iron can be bent, even easily broken when it is cast, it will rust and corrode, and their
alchemists have worked diligently to effect this in the hopes that the core of what it is
will be transmuted into gold or a similar precious metal that will serve their purpose.
They, like those merchants of misdirection in the Peltier camp have failed miserably,
and produced nothing save broken pieces and metal filings strewn about the floor of their
workshop. What they offer has not been tempered and honed to the cutting edge the truth
they seek to hide has been, and they are left as always to stumble about in the darkness
attempting to ignite a blaze with material that is incapable of producing either light or
Surely they huddle in this well deserved darkness they have created and plot the next
course, the next fund raising campaign that could be better spent to help those who bear
no guilt, who suffer not for something done, but for something left undone. Not for those
who are convicted murders, but for those who are made to suffer merely for being what they are-indigenous.
Thirty five years in the offing, but Free Graham, LPDOC, and AIM, have just been handed an ass whipping by a long deceased little woman from Nova Scotia-a Mi’kmaq. A nation of human beings in the truest sense of the word.
A nation that in knowing who they are and their place in the circle have neither allowed the production of, or will tolerate, wannabe chiefs who thunder back and forth across youtube, facebook, or their own sites in a hope birthed in the personal vanity and desire of selling themselves as warriors, as leaders.
A true leader, a great man of the Sauk nation-Makataimeshekiakiak, who said the following-
“How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right” would surely hang his head in sorrow and shame to know that now the same can be said of some among the nations. It is a thing we should all feel shame for and I would remind ones such as these as they place the feather in their hair, that it is as Aesops said:
“It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds.”
For me it is more-it is the song they sing, the nest they build, and the manner in which
they tend the little ones.
