Blinking Away Bad Eagle

from the Bad Eagle blog

After the huge mandate that Obama has inherited, we will hopefully see a great move away from Yeagley's neocon agenda and a great distance put between America and the corrupt Bush Doctrine that Yeagley has blindly supported for the past 8 years.

America may stay with “the people” after all, after all the failed Reaganesque (Friedmanesque) tinkle-on-you economics, and with its incessant backward pontifications to legislate right-wing morality toward a theocracy instead of holding true our founding democracy (and the freedom from religion, and the separation of church and state). Yes We Can, with a colossal landslide victory!!

So, instead of seeing that the country has voted its will in this election, Yeagley instead sees ignorance and weakness. Again, instead of seeing strength in the democratic method, Yeagley whines away with ‘weakness’ mantras.

Like he did at the Indigenous protest against the Columbus Day parade (in CO), Yeagley is again calling everyone who disagrees with him a “commie.” Without anything to offer Americans, without anything to offer American Indians, Yeagley is left whining and criticizing, but has no democratic solutions to offer in his wake. Our advice: avoid his wake and be Awake.

YEAGLEY — “most people are weak, and they like feeling they've been wronged... ‘I've been wronged!’ ...is the Communist message to each individual. ‘I deserve more! You've oppressed me!’ This appeals to the imagination, the ego, the spirit of rebellion, self-justification, and even aspiration. But, in ignorance, the people know not what Communism really is, how it really works, and what its results actually are” (Nov 2008).

YEAGLEY — “When the warrior was finally defeated, he became the reservation Indian” [leaning forehead toward camera for added emphasis]. “Th, the loser. The alcoholic. The depressed, keep-away-from-me, leave-me-alone” [swipes hand in air for added emphasis]. (2008)
America was founded on the attributes Yeagley is denigrating — imagination, ego, rebellion, self-justfication, aspiration — these are the stuff of American independence. We the people imagined ourselves independent. From our European roots, we were tired of being treated as underlings, peasants in a caste system; we had a healthy ego. From our American Indian and Black roots, we maintain our sense of rebellion; after all, America was founded on the American holocaust, but we have endured. The intersection of all our American roots has inspired us in our own self-determination.

We are patriots. We are Americans. We are not white thrones — We are patriotic and democratic Americans, and we care about the common good.

But in Yeagley’s eyes, we are all “commies.” And "stupid."

Yeah sure, as we say in Minnesota. The truth is revealed plainly for all: Yeagley is a nationalist, not a patriot. There is a difference. As a Nationalist, Yeagley cares not for the common good, but naively champions America “right or wrong” without thought of the common good, and without thought toward justice.

With his nationalist spectacles, Yeagley sees only the flag-draped, bible-thumping strains of American life, forgetting and dismissing the greater America that is Patriotic, Democratic and cosmopolitan. No, Yeagley’s ‘nationalism’ is not the same thing as being Patriotic.

So if you perhaps discern sour notes wafting from the piano doctor’s sanctuary in his mother’s old bedroom-turned-blogger-hideaway, be very clear in recognizing the difference between narrow nationalism and proper patriotism. Nationalism is narrow, unthinking discrimination, while Patriotism is inclusive and rational — of the people — all of the people. Yeagley’s divisiveness is an uncaring, mean-spirited, heartless push toward dogmatic theocracy by gravely mistaking paranoid nationalism for true patriotism.

Yeagley is so busy pontificating, it seems that he cannot hear properly. In a recent radio diatribe Yeagley had to admit to the radio host that he had not listened to the speeches of both Obama and McCain, unaware of either positions, garnering a chuckle from the host. So we can quickly see what the Yeagley anschauung is based on. Imaged reality, and reactive hyperbole.

America is a democracy, not a theocracy. Americans are not Yeagley jingoists, we are patriots with a more panoramic view of the concept. Patriotism includes everyone. All are welcome, from the middle east to Mexico and back again, everyone is welcome here.

America is pluralistic, cosmopolitan, multiracial, and imperfect. America is a work-in-process that started on American Indian genocide and is slowly moving toward justice and equality (we hope). Patriotism sees the process and the imperfection for what it is, a growth process, and shuns Yeagley’s selective reasoning of blind and rather dogmatic white nationalism.

American Patriotism: yes we can. Yeagley Nationalism: you ignorant commies. Better to blink away Yeagley’s irrationality and read this piece of intelligence instead:

The Limits of Power: The End of American Exceptionalism

(from Amazon): ... the modern American government is dominated by an "ideology of national security" that perverts the Constitution and common sense. It is based on presumptions about the universal appeal of democracy and America's role as democracy's great defender and promoter that just aren't true. And we ignore the ideology whenever it suits the government of the day, by supporting anti-democratic tyrants in important countries like Pakistan and Egypt, for example. The ideology "imposes no specific obligations" nor "mandates action in support of the ideals it celebrates," but can be used by an American president "to legitimate the exercise of American power."

Bacevich describes the military crisis with an insider's authority. He dissects an American military doctrine that wildly overstates the utility of armed force in politically delicate situations. He decries the mediocrity of America's four-star generals, with particular scorn for Gen. Tommy Franks, original commander of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. He calls the all-volunteer Army, isolated from the society it is supposed to protect, "an imperial constabulary" that "has become an extension of the imperial presidency."

“Andrew Bacevich has written a razor sharp dissection of the national myths which befuddle U.S. approaches to the outside world and fuel the Washington establishment’s dangerous delusions of omnipotence. His book should be read by every concerned US citizen.” — Anatol Lieven, author of America Right or Wrong: An Anatomy of American Nationalism

yeagley so misunderstood, eh? Always complaining that no one understands him and that we don't know the full scope of his Plans!

At our Comanche CBC Monthly meeting yesterday(11/06/08) Yeagley was placed on the executive agenda to speak of the "Daughter of Dawn", he was listed last so at this time I don't know if they even got to him. I left at about 1:PM. I knew the routine, so saw no need for me to stick around all day. A lady I know said they were there til 6:pm her group were called in, but they made no decision on any of the people in executive session.

After reading the Comanche Forum on the net today, I read that yeagley along with another Comanche man he befriended, Nick Tachawwicka, are asking the Nation to fund their business venture in musice of some sorts! Nicks elder mother and another elder Comanche woman were there to support the baby yeagley, who could not do this on his own merits. I just shake my head in disbelief that he can use these unknowing Elder women. After all the disrespect he has shown to the Comanche Elder Women.

Nick knows this....They are asking for funding to head up a recording and music business. I say "how dare Yeagley ask the Comanche Nation for assistance in any business venture when he is so anti-Indian, on his blog and is a member of white supremist anti- Indian groups. I hope our Chairman, who is always very cordial to yeagley at all times, but knows of his deceitful ways, rules against this anti-Indian, until such time that yeagley does a public apology to the Comanche College and all people who he has offended and that is many.

The group of white anti-indian associated of his want to eliminate racial differences and wants us all to be as one, under one Government. These white supremists think we Indians live under dual citizenship since we have our own Governments as well as the U.S. Government. This will never happen, maybe on paper or laws if they get their white ways with the help of yeagley infiltrating into the Comanche Nation and giving them ideas, but never will we Native American Indians fall prey to such stupidity, we will always chose apart from them and have our own Culture, whey do they want us to become White?

How are WE MISUNDERSTANDING yeagley when he pursues this on his site everyday against the Indian, though of late, I have noticed a slight riding the fence, its very subtle. ya know he can't shock or hurt his white supremist friends, and go Cold Turkey, though he never gave a thought about that when it comes to the disrespect of any of the Indian.

Maybe yeagley will move to Dallas, thats where Nick is close to. Nick is a good guy, what the hell is he thinking, though he is the one who nominated yeagley for vice chair last year. He is being used, only he has to find that out himself.

Wow, davey boy is getting his panties in a wad by someone called Indy....I wonder how long will he give Indy before he bounces him off.

Today(11/12/08), in the paper there was an article about an Oklahoma woman who being recruited over the internet by the KKK to be iniated into the KKK, but when she wanted to leave they killed her!. I mean I knew there were these white red neck hate groups people around, but they still Kill? That made me think of yeagley when I first met him and he told me when I asked him why he does and says cruel things about the Indians, he said "Bev, you don't understand, I have people who are watching me". Now that is scary, huh? This article made me wonder about the things he says and does...he lets things go for a while, actually seems to be trying be good, then wham, bam...for his white audience he hits the Natives an embarrasing blow....explodes another hateful rant against the Indians, maybe he is afraid to stop! Makes one wonder about such things, like a gang, but much worse.

Look kids, I've got a new game! It's called "Counting KooK Coups"!

Here's how it goes:
1) Go to Badeagle.com and click on "comments" at the bottom of the current blog.

2) Read through the comments and find the whitest supremacist you can find. He'll be the target.

3) Then pick the name of one of the regular Yeagleyites (my faves are "ecology" and "tallwinkte"). This way you're free to write anything and everything you want without fear of it being erased by the Man.

The object of the game is to get as many of the posters to refer or comment about your posts.

Each reference or comment counts as 1 point. If your target responds to "you", that's 2 points. And if Yeagley responds that's 3 points! But if you are caught, you lose all your points.

Bonus: If Yeagley erases any of your particularly vile postings you win that round!

I've been playing this for months and I've yet to be outed.

Come on, give it a try! It's fun, challenging and oh so disruptive to the worshipers of the white throne.

It's anarchy 101!

hmmmmmm,

If you have never been ousted? how could that be?

My favorite to hate is the white Anglo saxon dude, I think he is yeagleys' alter ego! I think he makes up a lot of these posters...I think he is boxing himself!!Betty ann was the only Indian that stayed very long, only because she loved him so....wonder what he did with her? Did she commit herself to the asylum?

I have been ousted...and I was not speaking against anyone but the Man himself, I caught him in a lie about his mothers' involvement in Comanche politics, he had to correct it, never apologized to me or gave me any credit for my constructive critism. He just did what he does to all REAL Indians whom he doesn't allow truth from.... banns them. This with the help of his sioux pit bull betty ann. yeagley is too weak to do the dirt, he sends in his foul mouth sioux woman scout ahead of him...thats his M.O.
