I believe discussion is better than arguing-also that there is a time and a place for both.
But either to my credit or discredit I made a decision to respond in kind to the attack mode that has characterized the AIM and Peltier camps.
Four plus decades of that is enough and they seem to have a sense of entitlement related to that.
I won’t miss an opportunity to ridicule, mock, accuse, or call them what they are whether it resonates or not.
I’ve done as much on Franklin street in the midst of their Minneapolis stronghold and I’ll continue to do the same in this blog or any venue that is available.
I believe as nations and a distinct people we are in a fight for survival- a continuation of the last five centuries and one I take very seriously.
The faces and intent of our adversities may have changed but the reality has not.
Now they exist among us within our communities as well-I’m realistic enough to understand that we can no longer roam free and live as we once did, but that doesn’t translate to embracing assimilation or putting a price tag on ourselves, our children, or our traditions.
I believe we should adopt what serves us just as we did the horse, iron pots and kettles, and leave the rest behind-most importantly drugs and alcohol.
If we are to be a sovereign people we must be self reliant-that takes a communal effort and desire, not being led around by an organization whose priority is self perpetuation.
Not role playing, posturing, or emulating a system that has taken everything from us, and yet desires more.
