IS HE A REPORTER, CRIME FIGHTER OR PEELED APPLE?
PAUL DEMAIN AND THE FBI
Above a rhetorical question asked by Bob Robideau in one of several “articles” he wrote. DeMain, being just one of a list that included Bruce Ellison, Vernon Bellecourt, and others.
The pdf link included below should be a part of this discussion.
I don’t know if DeMain considers himself a “hero”, I seriously doubt it though as I don’t believe he harbors the same illusions of grandeur AIM and Peltier do.
Nonetheless if you speak against AIM/Peltier it’s guaranteed that they will wail and rend their garments.
The awards were given to DeMain by his PEERS, that would be fellow journalists familiar with investigative reporting and ferreting out the truth.
Ignorance, or perhaps agenda, would resist the idea that such fellow journalists would have done a little investigating of their own to determine if DeMain’s work had merit, if it passed the litmus test-apparently they felt it did…..in AIM’s and Peltier’s eyes that must make them all feds and snitches, though in their cowardice they may be hesitant to attack the group and prefer to selectively single out an individual or two.
History has a way of repeating itself-Clyde Bellecourt once castigated DeMain and indigenous journalists for not investigating and reporting the “news” about AIM-what he hoped for was that they would accept the AIM handouts and print them verbatim.
When that didn’t happen and once DeMain along with others began presenting the truth, the real “news”, they were again castigated, only now with a malevolence that cannot be mistaken.
Granted AIM and Peltier “own” a few “ndn” sites who will present the verbatim handouts and in doing so mostly think of themselves as true warriors and last real indians -that works because as it has been said “you can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time”.
It’s interesting to note that most of those being fooled are non indigenous, the audience of choice, where the money and greater access is to be found.
Obvious why AIM and Peltier would attempt to portray DeMain as the Anti-Christ or a fed-but the lesson is be careful what you ask for, that’s something for Clyde to think about now.
