YEAGLEY’S BLOVIATED RUN FOR OFFICE

from the Bad Eagle blog

It seems that Yeagley concocted himself into a nomination for the Comanche council? How interesting, considering his financial ties to anti-education fanatic David Horowitz, and with his wink-wink-nod-nod obeisance to the white supremacy group One Nation.

While the rest of Indian Country voices admiration for Native figures like Quanah Parker, Dr. Louis W. Ballard, or Vernon Bellecourt, Yeagley’s admiration is directed at his own personal heros like Adolf Hitler, Vlad III the Impaler, and the deposed dictator the Shah of Iran and his empress wife. No, we are not kidding.


In our struggles for Indian equality, education, and the natural environment we honor leaders like Winona LaDuke, Marge Anderson, and Wilma Mankiller. Who does Yeagley constantly rave about? In a word: Ann Coulter, Michelle Malkin, and his Mexican mother.

But how does Yeagley stack up on Indian cultural issues? In anticipation of the Comanche election, Bad Eagle has put together a point-by-point comparison gleaned from a detailed familiarity with Yeagley’s blogger efforts.
