“Yes, I’m well aware of the history of the LPDC/LP-DOC. That’s why I stay on the periphery and work with Leonard directly and plan events.” Mark Holtzman/Silent Bear
Well, I’m pretty sure all are aware of the history, apparently among those who are a number either refuse to admit it or feel it is appropriate in an attempt to free a man who claims to be a “human being whose been wronged”.
So let’s review just a couple of things…one would be Silent Bears admission that AIM was responsible for the events within WK2 as well as keeping a distance between he and LPDOC because he is “aware” of their history. Interesting isn’t it?
SB after having stuck his foot in it never felt compelled to enlighten us as to this history that compels him to maintain a distance, but then as I say, I think we’re all pretty much aware of it.
Then there’s Antionette Nora Claypooles recent admission that what she proclaimed to be a FACT, i. e. that federal agent Price had admitted in court to threatening the life of Annie, wasn’t really wasn’t a FACT per se but rather something she FELT was.
Felt was sounds like wanting to believe it was, maybe not, but it’s a little difficult to find another explanation. I can’t help but wonder if a Ouija Board was involved.
Wanting something to be true sounds like an apt description for those who defend Peltier, likewise for the AIM supporters.
If these examples are indicative of those commonly held by others little wonder so much confusion exists.
I think in a larger sense we are all human beings who have been wronged …wronged in the sense when an attempt is made to alter the truth and dupe those whose ears it falls upon.
The same could be said of admitting an organization like AIM has blood on their hands, the blood of innocents, while at the same time attempting to absolve them of any wrong doing, such as SB has done.
To offer up a mea culpa that Crow Dog pays his daughters utilities with money garnered from the selling of ceremonies is another faux defense, ridiculous doesn’t begin to cover it.
But if that is part of the reason what difference exists between Crow Dog and a televangelist?
Between Crow Dog and say Elmer Gantry for instance? None that I can see.
“Spiritual leaders” preside over burials, they want the departed to rest in peace, or at least that’s what they say – that isn’t Crow Dogs calling, he wants an “actor” to exhume them and get rid of the evidence so he and his cohorts can rest easy.
For some I guess that’s okay since he’s paying utility bills and all.
Maybe I’m being hard nosed, or old school, or maybe it’s my traditionalist inclination, I just don’t see our beliefs as a marketable commodity, and I don’t see subverting a truth because we want it to be something else laudable.
