Wild rice, maple syrup, jams, and drums …. “warriors and liberators and spiritual leaders” oh my.
I’ve been kind of shaking my head, the reason for this? Dennis Banks new site, equal parts shameless capitalism, cultural genocide, and look at me aren’t I special.
Visitors to the site are welcomed with a proclamation that Banks is a living legend along with a slideshow featuring the” legend”.
Banks, verified by the photo, has even set up a sign offering people the opportunity to “meet Dennis Banks.”
Whoa, this is even better than Disneyland where you can rub shoulders with other cartoon characters like Goofy and Pluto, living legends in their own right.
Not much surprised by all this, well, maybe a little as the sign has a plain S instead of a monetary $ at the end of Denni$ and Bank$ – an oversight no doubt that may or may not have been addressed since the photo was taken.
The current site is basically a promotion for Bank$ new facilities located on Beaver Island, though in view of Bank$ and AIM$ past history related to the murders committed at WK2 and elsewhere it might be more appropriate to rename it Skull Island as an homage to their “spiritually” related activities.
Being a “legend” whether living or deceased might not be all it’s cracked up to be – others come to mind who were legendary during their lifetime and remain so today.
Legends like Attila the Hun, Custer, or Vlad the Impaler. Of course they didn’t offer syrup, jams, or ceremonies for sale and any comparisons should make note of that.
