I’ve been thinking about the previous blog Hosapa Redux, in particular Carter Camp and his eternally conflicting recounting of AIM murder victim Perry Ray Robinson jr.
Camp never seemed to be able to keep his story straight, which actually makes him unrecognizable from Banks, Means, and the Bellecourts save for physical appearance.
With Camp’s and AIM’s ingrained penchant for prevaricating the only storyline that hasn’t emerged is that Robinson shot himself, dug his own grave before bleeding to death, and in anticipation of his death pre emptively laid down in it to await the end.
Hey, why not? They’ve had Ray walking out of WK2 eating a candy bar to just disappearing as though abducted by aliens or part of a strategy to abandon his wife and children to decades of unrequited closure, to never having been seen…..by anyone.
At the CST conference a couple or so years ago poster boy for being a pompous ass Russell Means went so far as to portray the search for justice related to Ray as being some sort of conspiracy cobbled together by AIM haters to make it appear as though AIM had engaged in what he referred to as “illegality”.
Poor delusional Russell, a man who spent his life defecating through his mouth rather than in the usual manner actually expecting people to believe him
Even the most ardent of AIM supporters surely must be aware of the Camp chronicles, the state of flux they existed in, frenetic and disjointed, yet it doesn’t seem to bother them never having heard an AIM lie they wouldn’t sell out to.
AIM lies from “chief of chiefs”, “spiritual adviser”, to bloated “political prisoners” who could body double for the character Fat Bastard in one of the Austin Powers movies.
From Walking Eagle to Man Whose Horse is Afraid the load is too heavy.
It’s not only bizarre and otherworldly, it’s unbelievably transparent theater – theater performed for a paying audience. An audience that is going to pay one way or another in some form.
The price of admission? Donations, scams, outright theft, misery, murder, mayhem, and the marketing of anything thought to turn a buck.
I keep asking for someone, anyone, to step up and tell me things such as these are “In the spirit of Crazy Horse”.
Hasn’t happened so far, and should be a clue for groupies if they feel they are unable to do so that something isn’t right in Toon Town.
Harsh words, harsh assessment? I suppose that depends on a person’s viewpoint, but nowhere near as harsh as the reality.
Not as harsh as the murder of Ray, the murder of Annie Mae Pictou Aquash, those who lay in unmarked graves, or that of federal agents who hadn’t a clue Peltier was even around or looking for him.
Not as harsh as the rapes and crimes AIM has committed, the hostage taking at WK2, the burning and sacking of the community……In the Spirit of Crazy Horse? not even when pigs fly.
