Whoa-what a revealing meltdown-malign Mexicans, prairie dogs, and threaten FB
“friends” and “fans” with the dreaded delete button if they don’t do the Chief Facilitators bidding-WOW. (video link at bottom).
My suggestion? See this for exactly what it is – a tantrum and the shop worn coercion intimidation tactics that have been employed for decades-then do yourself a favor and hit the delete button of your own accord. The typical bullying tactics of the school yard and of AIM-you’re the one who can get along without this friend-Russell’s proven repeatedly he can’t.
Years ago the televangelist Oral Roberts wanted several million dollars to bail out his ministry/school-donations were slow in coming so he made a spectacle of going to his “prayer tower” to pray and seek direction, after some number of days he emerged to announce that the “Lord” had told him if the money wasn’t forth coming he would take Oral “home”.
Bizarre isn’t it that any would respond to such a claim that the “Lord” would basically hold Oral for ransom and take him out if it wasn’t paid, and yet they did. Oral got his millions, and “Lord” knows where it went.
This is a re tooled version of that-in this it is the “friends” who are held captive, and if the ransom of phone calls isn’t forthcoming the penalty is DELETION-a fate worse than the one poor Oral was confronted with. NOT.
Question is-how would the facilitator know who called and who didn’t? Will he be given a list, or would there just be a randomized polgrom? Or, “Lord” forbid, another tantrum?
The Sundance is the most sacred of ceremonies, and in the great professed love for the land, some accommodation, some effort, can surely be made to avoid damaging it . I don’t think one can exist without the other, and neither do I think because prairie dogs do and have that is an entitlement for others to-I’m willing to bet we aren’t being told the entire story-only the dramatized self serving one as has always been the way of it.
I’ve often felt the “liberators” and “leaders” studied their craft watching televangelists learning the shell game, and three card Monte-if I had any doubts I’m convinced now.
A “Harvard Law School” RoL Attorney General-how very….what’s the word I’m looking for here?….Oh yeah, that would be American-how very mainstream American. I wonder, is the RoL AG Lakota, or from any other nation? One thing for certain with the racist rant unleashed and directed at Mexicans, whoever it is it’s a safe bet they aren’t Hispanic.
Glowering, blustering, rumbling, stumbling along-all that needs an update, doesn’t have the same cachet it once did. In being a “movie star” I would think multiple takes were called for and some serious editing. I think what the issue here is that Russell’s personal attentionometer is in free fall and it’s a little disturbing for him.
As watchable theater-an F rating, for making sense in a coherent fashion- an F rating-for being a window into another world, Russell’s world- an A+.
Since there may be children present I offer the following disclaimer, if the F rating is to be construed as indicative of the middle finger that is left solely to the readers discretion and any similarity to actual events, persons, or person, living or deceased is purely intentional.
Damn those prairie dogs to hell-they’ve completely devalued an archeological site in discovering it. I’m thinking they may be COINTELPRO operatives-and let’s not even go there and suggest the faintest of possibilities it could be a burial site, or may be an operating room
where those Aztec’s performed open heart surgery on a scale never before seen or to be seen again.
Imagine if Annie Mae had been discovered by prairie dogs, or if Ray Robinson and others at wk2 were to be-the argument would be advanced then that all sharing responsibility could walk free as the discovery had been devalued. But then I’m sure there’s a bounty on prairie dogs anywhere in the vicinity of those unmarked graves.
“The plague boss, the plague” where’s Tattoo when you need him? He was much more convincing. I don’t believe the Lakota created themselves as Russell says-I think Creator did that. If it takes 3 years for the land to heal itself how does it achieve that for a recurring annual event? The correct pronunciation is DahveeLa, flat A’s ,short e’s. I believe.
Some effort needs to be made to determine if this is a burial site, if it is even the Chief Facilitators van has no business being parked on it, nor it should it be left to prairie dogs- sorry Russell, but your personal desires and alleged “safety” issues don’t trump that, tantrum and racial slurs or not. This isn’t a call for help-it is demand accompanied by a threat-as comical as the threat is.
Been thinking about this and wanted to add a little more as follows: I say this with all sincerity and devoid of any malice-had I of been in Russell’s presence during the making of this video commentary featuring the slurring of word’s and disjointed meandering I would have been concerned he was either suffering some manner of stroke or possibly drunk. I would have attempted to verify one or the other and suggested taping at a later date.
This sort of performance only serves to increase his growing irrelevance, and one would think as a performer he would be aware of that-but then performers never seem to know when to make an exit do they?
Let’s think about this for a minute-an archeological site in close proximity to a sacred site-is there a clue in this, a hint, a possibility of something else? Wouldn’t common sense and concern at least suggest treating it as such until further discoveries define what it is?
What this may be about is since Russell’s “mission” to the UN wasn’t the media event it was hoped to be, something else has to be found to make up for that-what better way to do that than to play to peoples spiritual beliefs and claim they are being violated? It’s part and parcel of the long running Vaudevillian act of the liberators, and almost always guaranteed to elicit a response.
In fact I would say Russell was completely outshone, outmanuvered, at the UNPFII by none other than long time rival Clyde-the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, and the insufferable wounding of pride and ego-he came, he saw, he was ignored.
Probably a single check book wasn’t opened either, no pledges of monetary assistance, no donations- so now he would have one and all believe the UNPFII is a bogus organization.
Makes me think of the character Norma Desmond in a classic 40’s movie entitled Sunset Boulevard-demanding star treatment, always waiting and convinced the studio will call, the next media event-her comeback, and proclaiming the great love of her fans. Yet all the cosmetics and poses struck failed to mask the truth.
We live in the real world, not the celluloid one of Tinseltown, or the digital version of youtube or video commentaries-long the compatriot, now they are the microscope where not everything can be photoshopped, and a thing said, a position taken, is archived, not be to be denied as purpose and whim would dictate at a later date.
