PELTIER: FROM HUMAN DRAMA TO FICTION


Re-blogged:

FROM HUMAN DRAMA TO FICTION

Indiegogo and other such fundraising entities have gained popularity and I’ve been thinking since Peltier and ILPDC  are always soliciting donations and made the decision to go that route they might consider adding a belated inducement in their next attempt.

And no I don’t mean a bumper sticker or anything so mundane, what I had in mind was an arrangement linking the release of Peltier’s parole board hearing transcripts and disciplinary records to the fundraiser.

As Peltier has staunchly refused to sign off granting permission it would surely cause a stir – sort of a pay to play. Pony up five bucks or so and see what’s behind door number three.

Think of the support it could garner if all things are as Peltier says.

Ask yourself if Nelson Mandela, someone ILPDC and Peltier like to egregiously draw comparisons to, would of had the ability to control such things would he have refused publicizing them?

I kind of doubt that as Mandela was truly a man of the people, and inspite of all that went before, all the greivences, went to great lengths to promote reconciliation and a national healing upon his release.

I think Mandela grew as a person during the time of his imprisonment, a testament to who he was, who he became, the same can’t be said of Peltier who remains as morally stunted and lacking of integrity as he has been for his entire adult life.

Ask yourself if that is a course Gandhi would have chosen, who likewise sought reconciliation and healing in the aftermath of the struggle for independence and human rights?

The Indiegogo campaign had a goal of $175,000 – it closed earlier this month having received a little more than $35,000, far short of what was desired but with assurances that all money would be used as declared as the options dwindle.

To me the failure to reach the goal is yet another indication that as time has passed the Peltier myth has begun to curdle like sour milk – too many unanswered questions, too many contradictions, and too much coming to light.

People have begun to ask themselves if a man would stick a gun in a woman’s mouth to interrogate and threaten her would he be capable of cold blooded murder? If a man routinely caught in lies during interviews is even capable of telling the truth?

If either speak to the spirit of Crazy Horse?

It won’t end with this latest of failed campaigns, there will be others asserting the same claims, advancing the same “talking points” while avoiding those seen as burdens, threats to the cause, and the understanding that if the well is tainted people won’t drink from it – that you can lead the public horse to water but cannot make them drink.

Ongoing reorganizations, internal purges, new faces and old better left alone faces brought in have failed miserably, as has the steady flow of missives from Peltier in the search to find the right words, the right buttons to push.

The final chapter is being written in a book of pretense, and upon completion it will be relocated from human drama to the fiction section where it should have been assigned in the first place.

If Peltier is as pure as the driven snow and so routinely victimized as he and they claim I can see no reason why he wouldn’t agree.

Something wrong when an “innocent” man won’t willingly do so out of respect for those who have advocated for him without the need to attempt a monetary inducement.

So what do you say Peltier – what’s the asking price, or is there no amount of money sufficient to run the risk?

Perhaps the money could be dedicated to your children or grandchildren, something tangible you could leave them in lieu of a cobbled together myth and decades of lies.

Or maybe to our youth you claim to be so concerned with and want to “mentor”, perhaps even the environment as you attempt to associate yourself with issues you believe will resonate.

Being incarcerated comes with obvious restrictions, signing a release form isn’t one of them.

PELTIER: "Little Eichmanns"


Dear Supporters:

The problem with fabricated stories is that inconsistencies frequently occur. As opposed to the truth, which is compatible with its environment. Falsehoods, as Daniel Webster said, not only disagree with truths, but usually quarrel among themselves.


Little Eichmanns, a term employed by wannabe ndn, activist, social commentator Ward Churchill when referencing the victims of 9/11
One time "honorary" card carrying member of the Ketowah Cherokee - Churchill caught hell for the ignorance of his words, and deservedly so, even though he immediately attempted to backpedal away from them - but the term having been coined ( not original to WC) has valid  application when applied elsewhere.....say for instance in reference to the AIM leadership.

A leadership who took to heart Hitler's words that:

"All this was inspired by the principle—which is quite true within itself—that in the big lie there is always a certain force of credibility; because the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie, since they themselves often tell small lies in little matters but would be ashamed to resort to large-scale falsehoods. It would never come into their heads to fabricate colossal untruths, and they would not believe that others could have the impudence to distort the truth so infamously. Even though the facts which prove this to be so may be brought clearly to their minds, they will still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation. For the grossly impudent lie always leaves traces behind it, even after it has been nailed down, a fact which is known to all expert liars in this world and to all who conspire together in the art of lying."—Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf

"If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed."  Adolf Hitler. The AIM leadership abide by this principle and heavily rely on what Hitler referred to as "the primitive simplicity of their minds". A simplicity displayed among their supporters from the least educated to those some would refer as intellectuals, authors, journalists, and others who "still doubt and waver and will continue to think that there may be some other explanation."

That would be some explanation other than the truth - a truth that would admit this leadership isn't deserving of being excused on the grounds of having feet made of clay when the reality is they have no feet and merely slither upon the ground.
Little Eichmanns with their theft of the art and treasures of the nations, with their propaganda machine, intimidation, bombings, and storm troopers who have made people disappear while attempting to portray themselves as liberators just as the Nazi hierarchy did.

The Nazi's aligned with Communist Russia at one point, following that example the AIM leadership aligned with the CPUSA - Nazis aligned with other nations in what became known as the AXIS powers-the AIM leadership has done the same with Iran and other oppressive countries.

Big lies, little lies - doesn't really matter, as both are the mainstay for the little Eichmann's of the AIM leadership.

Following WW1 the Treaty of Versailles effectively sought to extract more than a pound of revenge from Germany, and in large measure created a climate that facilitated the rise of Hitler and Nazism.

There is no question this treaty was punitive and unjust - it became the centerpiece, a rallying cry much the same as AIM has attempted to make Leonard Peltier a centerpiece.
But I believe the Little Eichmanns behind the curtain have other motives, one is which in
 keeping attention focused on the cobbled together myth of Peltier the hope is it will
 provide enough of a distraction for "simple minds" to keep them from looking behind the AIM curtain of lies - to keep them from asking which are the big lies and which are the little lies? (Rezinate, 9/29/14)
