An example of the AIM manifesto in operation, go on the offensive, make accusations,and
then go silent.
I can’t help but laugh at the “unfriending” – it’s sounds so infantile, like an upset child
taking their ball and going home.
Doesn’t make any difference what generation a person is from when the issue is about justice and inequity for any indigenous person, persons, or nation -if that weren’t the case nobody would be saying anything about the five hundred plus years of injustice as each generation would be “from another generation”…..maybe Chase just forgot that premise, or hasn’t put it all together yet….maybe the truth about AIM is one of those inconvenient truths.
Nobody would be saying anything about our missing women, or the rape and abuse they face, the gangs and level of crime – that too a part of the taboo topics as enumerated in the AIM manifesto.
There’s a lot of things people would rather “focus on” than misery and injustice, wish they could, but ignoring a problem or an injustice has yet to remediate a single one – that Ostrich approach conceals only the head, not the heart that remains visible for all to see, and it is the way of the heart that defines a person.
I’ve said on more than one occasion that in my opinion LRI amounts to a little more than an AIM satellyte, but I also believe it to be an evolving personal platform for political aspirations.
~Denise Pictou Maloney~ “LRI will never address violence against women because they support and hang with those who do. Period.I had several conversations with both Chase Iron Eyes and his wife Sarah Jumping Eagle and updated them on the information and truth regarding my mothers murder.
Chase at first accused me of mudslinging, which I corrected him and said asking him if he was associated with AIM was not mudslinging. He then said his family were AIM members and he preferred to focus on the positive aspects of our youth and he came from another generation.
Sarah seemed genuinely concerned but drew quieter and more silent the more I shared with her about the internal abuse my mother suffered. Chase then said he wished he had more time to discuss this but he was busy with Pesla and then he and Sarah both unceremoniously unfriended me .
They now both know the truth about the AIM leaderships complicity in my mothers murder and that they currently publicly support my mothers murderers along with Leonard Peltier. What they do with it and who they support will be on their conscience. “
