“How smooth must be the language of the whites, when they can make right look like wrong, and wrong like right.”(Makataimeshekiakiak) Black Hawk
A classic example of this is illustrated in the way Peltier, LPDOC, and his accolytes go about promoting their cause – it isn’t about guilt, it’s about the smooth nature of a language that lends itself to manipulation.
It’s about excerpts, inclusions, exclusion, and interpretations, while facts, statements by others, and Peltier’s own bumbling admissions are ignored. Above all it is about the crafting of a persona that has no basis in reality.
The man is a liar, that’s the bottom line- those who refuse to recognize that have been willingly cuckold and apparently see themselves in a light that has no basis in reality either.
They may bemoan the reality of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash as though obligatory, her abduction and murder, yet never address Peltier’s interrogation of her at gunpoint, an interrogation with the option to commit murder for the fly in the ointment it is related to their hero.
Other things they are willing to overlook is that Peltier was NEVER part of the AIM leadership, he was in fact a low level grunt referred to as dumb as dirt, a resident thug, something he’s proven time and time again.
They don’t want to hear anything about his preference for young girls or those with handicaps like Myrtle Poor Bear.
To acknowledge a single one of these would cause Humpty Dumpty to fall and the house of cards constructed in his behalf would unceremoniously collapse.
When support is so qualified, so dependent, what does it say?
If it’s about “legal points” how about the legal points points related to the murder of Annie and Ray, or those unmarked graves courtesy of AIM?
Or are they more flies in the ointment, bumps and potholes in the road of a smooth language?
