“Today is a Day that will go down in Infamy” Then President FDR speaking in reference to the December 07, 1941 attack on Pearl harbor-I think the same can be said of 6-26-12 and the declaration of OST President John Yellow Bird Steele as being Russell Means Day-a day not to address infamy and seek answers but to “praise”.
I suppose stranger things have happened though-like Caligula appointing his horse Incitatus to the Roman Senate.
So, Russell Means, the man who would be King, has a day dedicated to him at PR, and I can’t help but wonder what behind the scenes campaigning was involved-did it require the efforts of a Super Pac? Did Ron Paul return the favor and add his endorsement?
I can think of any number of days that should be rather than just one, and all of them characterized by some element of infamy.
Like the 71 days of rampage at WK2, the days devoted to self promotion and soliciting donations for projects that sound good in updates and on paper but never quite come to fruition, the day Russell decided to kick the concept of sovereignty for the Dineh and all the nations under the bus with his “Chinle” defense.
Other days like the day he told Denise, Annie’s daughter, he knew who was responsible for her mother’s murder but had given his “word” not to reveal it-and the subsequent days spent in babbling on about matriarchy under this cloud of refusing to assist in bringing justice to a murdered woman and some sense of closure to her survivors.
Russell Means Day-uh huh, has about as much meaning as ground hog day, probably less. I’m awaiting “anonymous” hints to begin making the rounds that maybe a bronze statute wouldn’t be too over the top-if such should eventuate hopefully there will be an abundance of pigeons in the area.
The common perception is that to wander aimlessly doesn’t accomplish much, and I suppose that is often times the case-but to “wander” AIMlessly would be a different story, it would speak to a new and coherent direction being taken, no small accomplishment in itself.
The landscape would dramatically change, vision would be clarified, and people would become something more than a market to manipulate.
Truth would emerge from the shallow graves it has been consigned to and a very real opportunity to move forward would result.
A relative handful by their actions have transformed the acronym of AIM from American Indian Movement to American Indian Mafia and Assholes In Moccasins-in such cases most of it runs downhill to stigmatize others in it’s path.
Something that should not be, but of value to those responsible for the buffer it provides, the insulating properties.
The opportunity to say “See, they hate US”, in the inclusive sense, an opportunity to hide among the crowd. And in doing so the minions attempt to characterize any protest, any opposing voice, any attempt to speak the truth as being hate speech.
I would like anyone, so much as a lone individual, from among those who swoon over the matriarchy “series” to explain how it is they reconcile the murder of Annie Mae and the silence that screams with a volume greater than having given one’s “word”?
I would ask if it were their mother or any female relative or friend how they would react? Would they continue to swoon, or say it amounts to a bunch of BS considering the source?
Simple questions-any takers?
