A New Direction

from the Bad Eagle blog

Do I hear the sounds of kicking and whining over at Yeagley’s blog? I think I do! As a devout white supremacist, the piano doctor has his proverbial hands full with both a highly-probable black presidential win and the crumbling of the crony capitalist system he has been supporting with his neocon agenda. But while Yeagley whines on about “socialism” and “blackness” ruining America, the real American patriots are starting to move the country in a new direction — a better direction — toward the Common Good. And, although Yeagley continues his “poor me” mentality, commentators over at his blog have had enough of his whining too:

OCTOBER 30 — “No responses no one cares your opinion Yeagley. Most importantly Indian people do not care. I may be one of 3 who view this site and it's only to monitor you. Also you should stop attempting to align yourself with Indian thought. It's embarrassing to read, even for me. Everyone who's Indian knows you are not even near the mainstream of Indian thought, much less your questionable Indian credentials... You are clearly out of your league and over your head every time you comment on Native issues.”

YEAGLEY — "Now, as one who recently supported the Comanche Nation's preservation of Medicine Bluff, I am certainly sensitive to the plight of Indians who are trying to preserve what little we have left. However, there has to be some common sense here. We simply cannot claim back every inch of American soil--even though we undoubtedly have the bones of our ancestors in every inch."

OCTOBER 31 — “Your attempt to now present yourself as some kind of staunch advocate regarding Indians and sacred sites is pretty damn disengenous. Oh, those Comanche Bluffs were worthy of protection but Mt. Graham is suspect? Do you see how absurd your statement is here? You're a johnny-come lately to most things that directly involve Indian peoples. Because you attended the a few days court hearings regarding the Comanches, that makes you some sort of unbiased, purely objective commentator on the many other, just as important sites under attack? Note that I am not diminishing the Comanche Nation's victory here either, just your own chauvanism.”
So, if you decide to peek into the oven to see Yeagley’s yeasty remonstrations get cooked, be sure to GO HERE AND READ THIS at your convenience:


The ABCs of Native American Heritage Month

This month, as the nation observes Native American Heritage Month, Teaching Tolerance offers a wealth of activity ideas tied to Thanksgiving, Native mascots and indigenous people's proud heritage of resistance.

by Jennifer Holladay

In 1990, President George H.W. Bush designated November as "National American Indian Heritage Month," designed as a celebration of the history, art and traditions of the American Indian and Alaska Native peoples.

In many ways, November is an odd time to observe Native American Heritage Month. It's the month that the nation also observes the federal Thanksgiving holiday, which to some Native Americans is no cause for celebration, but rather a Day of Mourning.

November also marks the countdown to football bowl season, when people gather around televisions to root for the "Seminoles," the "Redmen," the "Savages" and the "Fighting Sioux."

In this edition of the ABCs, Teaching Tolerance provides resources and activities to help debunk the mythology of Thanksgiving and expose the racism inherent in Native mascots.

At the same, we encourage educators to go beyond these issues during and after Native American Heritage Month to examine Native people's struggles to hold onto heritage and secure justice. Tafeni English, Camille Jackson, Carrie Kilman and Rhonda Thomason contributed to this edition of the ABCs.

Obama Presidency will limit Yeagley’s influence

from the Bad Eagle blog

When the celebrated patriot and reformer Barack Obama is sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America, a change in the racial perception of children will occur, according to new research. Apparently, children easily recognize the white male bias of the US Presidency and that perception will be directly challenged when Obama takes the Oval Office.

I am sure that David Yeagley will lament ad nauseam about how the country is becoming immoral and degenerate, or some other pile of negative attributes that have no basis in reality, like the so-called offense of blasphemy. Obviously, to any rationale thinker, “blasphemy” is truly a victimless crime (would-be “crime”). But setting aside Yeagley’s usual biblical hyperbole, his white supremacist rants can be easily seen.

YEAGLEY — “this matter pushes the envelope, really, about the whole idea of whether the Negro race is something other races enjoy looking at... In fact, it's so sensitive that the laws of America tend to require a non-Negro person to dutifully respect and value the Negro... The law thus makes a world of hypocrites, in a way, in the name of equality” (2005).
First, there are no laws that dictate one must “dutifully respect” nor “value” the “Negro” as Yeagley distorts. There are, of course, many civil rights laws designed to guarantee equal rights for all people regardless of color.

But see how Yeagley has twisted this measure of good-natured, altruistic citizenship of equal rights for all into a rather whiny lament about his having to obey civil rights law.

Really, folks are nice to others because of an evolutionary characteristic of altruism born into us through natural selection. In other words, most people don't like to "hate" anyone in America, though the ones that do shout more obnoxiously.

Secondly, Yeagley frets about his own hypocrisy regarding civil rights, and thereafter “projects” onto other citizens his own apprehension as if all citizens would somehow agree with Yeagley’s supremacist views.

Of course, mostly-white Yeagley (German by lineage) is part of the smaller and crassly vocal minority that still thirsts for the old plantation America.

Well, a new study brings happy news for the rest of us!

According to the research, the denigration of nonwhites will take a hit when Obama becomes America’s highest leader, and consequently we can expect Yeagley’s voice of white supremacy to become smaller too. Read the article:
Children aware of voter prejudice in US

AFP — “Children are aware white males have monopolized the US presidency, and most attribute the trend to racial prejudice, according to a study published Sunday.

Calling into question the idea children live in a color- and gender-blind world, researchers at the University of Texas, Austin, reveal ‘most elementary-school-aged children are aware there has been no female, African-American, or Hispanic President.’

In addition, ‘many of the children attribute the lack of representation to discrimination,’ said Rebecca Bigler, professor of psychology at the University of Kansas, and lead author of the study, published in the journal Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy.

The research team interviewed 205 children aged five to ten in 2006, a year before Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama began their historic bids for the White House. Clinton lost to Obama in the primary fight for the Democratic nomination.

The study asked the children, from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds, about their knowledge, attitudes and beliefs about the US presidency, and specifically about similarities between presidents and the absence of female, African-American and Hispanic presidents.

A third of the children said the white male monopoly was due to ‘racial and gender bias,’ and another third believed members of the excluded groups ‘lacked the skills to hold the position,’ according to the study.

One in four participants told researchers they thought it was ‘illegal for women and minorities to hold the office of president.’

The study found children were generally optimistic about the possibility that they could be president.

Girls who attributed the lack of female presidents to discrimination, however, were more likely to believe they could not become president.

‘The US presidency is a high profile case of racial and gender exclusion,’ Bigler said in a statement.

‘And because this topic is not typically explained to children, they appear to create their own explanations for the exclusion,’ she said.

The 2008 presidential election between Republican candidate John Mcain and Obama, who is black, has the potential to significantly alter children's view, said Bigler.

‘If Obama loses his bid for the presidency, there may be little change in children's attitudes, but it could fuel their perception that American voters are racially prejudiced,’ she said.

‘In contrast, if Obama wins children may believe that exclusionary laws and racial prejudice no longer shape the outcomes of the presidential elections.’ (October 5, 2008)

Fad Eagle Award for American Patriotism: David Yeagley

The first Fad Eagle Award for American Patriotism is presented to David Anthony Yeagley, for an irritable book, Pantings of a Comatose Preservative, a study in how to pickle your own white power simulacrum in a vanity publication when no one else really cares.

Speaking of white power and the continuance of racism in this country, it looks as though racial hatred against American Indians is still a culpable attribute of the patriotic and family values loving United States of America.

The Arizona Republic — A Native American man was shot in the leg and two others were injured Sunday after several White males and females wearing ‘white pride’ T-shirts attacked two of the men. A police bias crimes unit was investigating the case. The two men, Native Americans ages 48 and 24, were walking home from a store near 48th Avenue and Thunderbird Road when they were confronted and assaulted by several White men and women about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, Phoenix police said.
Of course, our award winner has pontificated that he knows racism is no longer around in today’s white America. So, we can easily see he is way out-of-touch with the reality on the ground. But in his defense, we know it’s hard to get a true sense of the world from an internet connection in your mother’s old bedroom.
YEAGLEY — “I'm beginning to think there's no such thing as racism. If there is, it is very rare” (2005).

YEAGLEY — “Please, leave blacks out of the conversation... no reason to keep referring to them. See how they've infected our minds? How they dominate any view of any subject? This is disgusting… I'm actually serious about this business of blacks having to be the center of attention... I hate this. It is repulsive to me... it is wrong and immoral” (2007).
So while the white pontificator continues to deny his affection for all things Ann Coulter and white power, we easily see through his eager panting and rhetorical contortionist routines. It’s really because Yeagley lives in a never-ending world of relativism where he simply continues to have an intellectual go at things without any real progress.

Yeagley thrives in a world of He-Said/She-Said talking heads, and relies on the ancient Bible to provide his contemporary view of an unchanging life. For Yeagley, the world is only 10,000 years old, never changes nor evolves, and the only certainty is provided by a collection of conflicting myths compiled into a synergistic catalog (just flip though the bible to find the best buys at any particular moment).

Truthfully though, the relativistic world of polar opposites arguing to distraction, only hides the reality that the truth does not rest in-between. When one opposite declares evolution a hoax, and another states with credible certainty that evolution by natural selection is actually a fact — the truth is not somewhere in the middle of those ideas.

Evolution is truly a fact, while Intelligent Design (or whatever the latest flavor for “creationism” happens to be at the moment) is a failed attempt at fabricating a Christian theocracy in America. So the truth obviously does not rest in the center.

It is lame and sad but true that Yeagley survives only because he lives himself in a self-created world of relativism, where the truth often gets shoved off the radar in favor of polar arguments, rendering invisible what is really going on. Yeagley thrives on this distraction and propagates it to his own delight.

David Yeagley seems a deep-rooted propagandist whose own roots lie in not religion but in relativism.
