Of interest to me is I knew someone who will remained unnamed that spent a fair amount of time on the inside of the “free Peltier” movement.
In discussing events with them they stated that everyone they worked with “knew” on some level that Peltier was indeed guilty, that they more research they did the more his guilt became undeniable.
That facts were routinely denied, fabricated, twisted, Ignored, or taken out of context – the greatest difficulty arose in Peltier’s conflicting stories that were understood to be lies, and it was that difficulty that perhaps more than anything else demonstrated that what was being presented was pure bullshit.
I asked them once about Mr. X and they just laughed saying everyone knew X was a complete lie from the get go, but also a diversion, and the gist of the “movement” is about diversion, doing whatever it takes to divert attention from indisputable realities.
Being a former Peltier supporter I’m familiar with the mechanics, the expectations. Not willing to play that game, or engage in the AIM charade I no longer am.
On occasion a Peltierite will post a comment, some by rote litany, but when the hard questions begin they break off.
I understand that completely as they’ve got nothing but a fabricated myth and a “case” for innocence that when you get down to it has more holes than Swiss cheese.
AIM, LPDOC, AND ILPDC have all understood that if you repeat a lie often enough it becomes accepted as the truth by some. If you refuse to address the realities and opt instead to rely on labeling those who do as “haters”or any number of other things those who share the cult mentality will likewise believe it to be the truth.
Others drone and stumble along pulling their covers at times by saying they don’t really associate with LPDOC/ILPDC because they know their reputation.
Kind of makes you want to ask what is that reputation, is it so bad, so lacking credibility it’s better to distance yourself?
Having been a Peltier supporter they apparently forget I know the game – I can anticipate what they’ll respond to and what they won’t. I know the dance they’ll do to dress something up or dress it down – what diversions they’ll resort to.
Personally I don’t care one way of another if Peltier leaves prison in a pine box or on his own two feet – what I do know is he is a liar, fraud, and a murderer.
Nothing changes that.- not OKC, Waco, “paranoia”, “goons”, or a bunch of armed thugs and thieves ransacking and murdering their way through WK2.
