Little Eichmanns, a term employed by wannabe ndn, activist, social commentator Ward Churchill when referencing the victims of 9/11
One time “honorary” card carrying member of the Ketowah Cherokee – Churchill caught hell for the ignorance of his words, and deservedly so, even though he immediately attempted to backpedal away from them – but the term having been coined ( not original to WC) has valid application when applied elsewhere…..say for instance in reference to the AIM leadership.
A leadership who took to heart Hitler’s words that:
“All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying.”
—Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” Adolf Hitler
The AIM leadership abide by this principle and heavily rely on what Hitler referred to as “the primitive simplicity of their minds”. A simplicity displayed among their supporters from the least educated to those some would refer to as intellectuals, authors, journalists, and others who “still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation.”
That would be some explanation other than the truth – a truth that would admit this leadership isn’t deserving of being excused on the grounds of having feet made of clay when the reality is they have no feet and merely slither upon the ground.
Little Eichmanns plundering the art, treasures, ceremonies, and traditions of the nations, with their propaganda machine, intimidation, bombings, and storm troopers who have made people disappear while attempting to portray themselves as liberators just as the Nazi hierarchy did.
The Nazi’s aligned with Communist Russia at one point, following that example the AIM leadership aligned with the CPUSA – Nazis aligned with other nations in what became known as the AXIS powers-the AIM leadership has done the same with Iran and other oppressive countries.
Big lies, little lies – doesn’t really matter as both are the mainstay for the little Eichmann’s of the AIM leadership.
Following WW1 the Treaty of Versailles effectively sought to extract more than a pound of revenge from Germany, and in large measure created a climate that facilitated the rise of Hitler and Nazism.
There is no question this treaty was punitive and unjust – it became the centerpiece, a rallying cry much the same as AIM has attempted to make Leonard Peltier a centerpiece.
But I believe the Little Eichmanns behind the curtain have other motives, one is which in keeping attention focused on the cobbled together myth of Peltier the hope is it will provide enough of a distraction for “simple minds” to keep them from looking behind the AIM curtain of lies – to keep them from asking which are the big lies and which are the little lies?
