Seventh-day Adventist sued for $5 million

from the Bad Eagle Journal


Speaking of Seventh-day Adventists ... It seems like the Seventh-day Adventist folks are good at shuffling around their personnel at crunch time. Don’t like the way their youth “teachers” are treated by the local authorities and the local press, why not move them to another state? into a different youth academy? It helps if one has a father in high places too, don’t you think? Seems like the Seventh-day Adventist are not immune from black collar crime, no matter having a so-called father in high places.

Andrew McPherson, a former teacher at Pleasant Hill (CA) Adventist Academy, and the Northern California Conference of Seventh-day Adventists are being sued for $5 million by a former student at the school in the mid-1990s.


The woman, listed as Jane Doe in a complaint, was 13 when the alleged abuse started. McPherson is a registered sex offender in Idaho whose father is president of the church’s Idaho conference. The Complaint said sexually explicit comments escalated into unwanted groping, fondling and kissing, culminating in a choking incident on campus in 1996. McPherson was then transferred to the church’s Reno Junior Academy in Nevada, where he was later convicted of having sex with a 15-year-old female student at the academy, said a 1998 report in Reno Gazette-Journal.

Member of Yeagley's Church Pities Yeagley for His Bigotry

from www.davidyeagley.org


"Sad ... David Yeagley, known to many as a columnist for David Horowitz's FrontPageMag.com, delivers a bizarre anti-Muslim tirade in his latest blog post. I find this very hard to believe. This is not the guy I used to know back in the late 70s and early 80s when we both attended the New Haven Seventh-day Adventist Church--when he was working on his M.Div. from Yale Divinity School(!). I really feel sorry for him. "

Comanches may be racially mixed

from the Bad Eagle blog


If you haven’t checked it out yet, do go see the site “IndiVISIBLE: African-Native American Lives in the Americas.” If you do, you may notice an interesting photo right on the front page of a Comanche kinship group with mixed heritage including black. Considering the length of time and all the mixed history, it is probable that many Comanches might be of mixed lineage -- as are probably all Native peoples. But the photo, and the article, are especially good news for those who reject the notion of “pure blood” that distorts and falsifies the true reality of racial plurality on the planet. So hip hip hooray for black Comanches! Enjoy!

IndiVISIBLE

African-Native American Lives in the Americas


Within the fabric of American identity is woven a story that has long been invisible—the lives and experiences of people who share African American and Native American ancestry.


African and Native peoples came together in the Americas. Over centuries, African Americans and Native Americans created shared histories, communities, families, and ways of life. Prejudice, laws, and twists of history have often divided them from others, yet African-Native American people were united in the struggle against slavery and dispossession, and then for self-determination and freedom.


For African-Native Americans, their double heritage is truly indivisible. The exhibition IndiVisible: African-Native American Lives in the Americas is a collaboration between the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian, National Museum of African American History and Culture, and the Smithsonian Institution Travelling Exhibition Service (SITES).

Hate sites bad for America, bad for business

from the Bad Eagle journal


It would seem that the cost of running a hate site such as Bad Eagle dot com is a pittance compared to the damage it is costing tax payers and the security of America. This new report has determined that the activities, such as those of the Yeagley’s of the blogosphere, are not only bad for American security, but also bad for American pocketbooks. A true American patriot would cease and desist in such activities.

Secret Service strained as leaders face more threats

Report questions its role in financial investigations

By Bryan Bender


WASHINGTON - The unprecedented number of death threats against President Obama, a rise in racist hate groups, and a new wave of antigovernment fervor threaten to overwhelm the US Secret Service, according to government officials and reports, raising new questions about the 144-year-old agency’s overall mission...


The domestic threat is also growing, fueled in part by Obama’s election as the nation’s first black president, according to specialists who study homegrown radical movements.


Obama, who was given Secret Service protection 18 months before the election - the earliest ever for a presidential candidate - has been the target of more threats since his inauguration than his predecessors.

Two days before Obama’s appearance at San Francisco fund-raisers on Thursday, a 59-year-old Northern California man was indicted on charges of sending a racist, profanity-filled e-mail threatening to kill Obama and his family. The rambling e-mail included specific references to Michelle Obama and the phrase, “do it to his children and family first in front of him,’’ according to the indictment...


A center study released in August found a nearly 35 percent growth in racially based domestic hate groups since 2000 - from 602 to 926. The center concluded that opposition to Obama’s election has only increased the phenomenon.


“A key difference this time is that the federal government - the entity that almost the entire radical right views as its primary enemy - is headed by a black man,’’ the report said. “One result has been a remarkable rash of domestic terror incidents since the presidential campaign, most of them related to anger over the election of Barack Obama.’’


Threatening language has also found its way into talk radio broadcasts and social networking websites, raising fears that individuals not normally considered threats to the president could be incited to violence.

For example, the Secret Service in recent months has investigated a poll posted on Facebook about whether Obama should be killed. It has interviewed a Florida radio talk show host after a caller mentioned ammunition, target practice, and the president, and federal officials have raised concerns about several instances in which protesters carrying weapons showed up at Obama events, including a man at an August town hall in New Hampshire...


The Secret Service has been given more resources to deal with the changing environment. Its total number of employees has risen from 6,700 two years ago to a projected 7,055 in the new fiscal year that began Oct. 1, with almost all the new positions for the protection mission.


Its overall budget request has grown by several hundred million dollars a year, including a nearly a 20 percent increase since 2008 for so-called protective intelligence activities, the efforts to analyze and investigate threats, according to budget documents.

Modern humans have been around for what, a million, a million and a half years? Remember, this vast lineage is the expansive time scale (millions of years) that evolution and humanity are dealing with in evolutionary terms — not 6, 10, or even 1000 generations of grandfathers. While the pontificator struggles to understand how an old bible story cannot be taken for scientific fact, and the older generations cannot possibly have any greater clue about our origins so long ago, please watch this video trailer.

Exposing Yeagley's Intellectual Company

Perhaps a mark of a man, certainly a public figure of any stripe however obscure, deserves to have his intellectual associations opened to sunlight. It is with this specific interest in mind that Bad Eagle (dot org) includes this article below, in hopes that our many faithful readers will see marked similarities to the one-drop pontificator. Enjoy!


BIRTHER OF A NATION

New Mexico's White Supremacists Keep the Hate Alive
Dave Maass 08/12/2009

It’s the worst of times for the white pride movement.

In January, the nation’s mixed-race president, Barack Obama, was sworn in. In July, that president publicly scolded a white police officer for arresting an African American Harvard professor. And in August, the US Senate confirmed that president’s pick for the Supreme Court: the first Latina judge to sit on the panel.

Yet, 2009 may also be the best of times—at least for recruiting. The national climate is spurring racist organizations to regroup and reinvent themselves by latching onto “birther” conspiracy theories, homophobia and immigration fears, while promoting new philosophies of semi-tolerance and non-violence.

Frontline Aryans is a homegrown New Mexico white pride organization that recently committed to expansion. The group grew out of a small clique of white supremacists in Albuquerque who organized regular get-togethers in 2007 and 2008. When founder Justin Argabright moved to North Dakota in April, he decided it was time to take the organization national.

“It’s becoming easier to reach out to those who don’t associate with the white pride or white power movements,” Argabright tells SFR. “A lot of people are unhappy with the way the country is going these days.”

Argabright is planning a recruitment mission in New Mexico in the coming weeks. Susan Seligman, New Mexico regional director of the Anti-Defamation League, which combats anti-Semitism and other forms of bigotry, downplays the group’s reach.

“One member out of three who are active in New Mexico moved to North Dakota a few months ago,” Seligman tells SFR via email. “If that’s going national I have to laugh…He’s small time and his ‘group’ isn’t going anywhere.”

Frontline Aryans’ New Mexico director, Keith, who would not divulge his surname, tells SFR the ADL is simply trying to discredit the group.

“[ADL is] partially accurate because it is still small,” Keith says. “But I have many years of experience and so does Justin, and I expect it’s going to grow. The numbers here, the numbers there and the numbers everywhere else all add up.”

Argabright claims that in total Frontline Aryans has attracted members in the low-to-mid triple digits from New Mexico, Minnesota, North Dakota, California, Texas and Montana. In New Mexico, specifically, Keith says, Frontline Aryans is in the double digits.

Since late July, organizers have set up a toll-free number and a website, and have begun promoting themselves publicly on a popular white national message board, stormfront.org.
Argabright emphasizes that Frontline Aryans’ approach represents a fundamental shift in white supremacist philosophy and strategy.

“I know the United States will never be an all-white country,” Argabright says. “It would never happen like that unless something extreme happened, which would probably have to include violence, which I don’t promote.”

In fact, Argabright, 25, is adamant about non-violence and says he’s completely intolerant of crimes and drugs—both got him in trouble when he was a more militant, teenage racist skinhead. He sees Frontline Aryans as a family group that organizes barbecues, musical events, retreats and pamphleteering. Frontline Aryans is also organizing a network for white-run businesses.

And while Argabright has Nazi SS bolts tattooed on his shaved head, Jews seem less on his mind these days. Asked what he sees as a central issue, Argabright—a self-described segregationist—goes right after Obama’s eligibility to be president.

“As of now, I still don’t believe that the president was even born in the country,” Argabright says. “It is a little nerve-racking that the president’s middle name is ‘Hussein’…I can’t speak for my whole organization, but I’m pretty sure that

they follow behind me: I don’t think the president should be black and, if he is, a foreigner. That’s not the precepts America was founded on.”

So far, few direct links have been made between “birthers” and organized white supremacy groups, according to Heidi Beirich, director of research for the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups. But the connection is starting to emerge. In fact, the first red flag jumped out last week, when the white nationalist group Council of Conservative Citizens’ website linked to a copy of a purported Kenyan birth certificate for Obama (later proved a hoax).

“White supremacists are, frankly, freaking out, so I’m not surprised to see them glomming on to the ‘birther’ theory,” Beirich tells SFR. “It provides two things: First, it helps nullify the worst thing that ever happened to them politically—the election of Obama. Secondly, it’s a movement they might be able to tap into.”

Beirich says white supremacist groups have attempted to recruit members from the anti-tax protest “tea parties” springing up across the county, which are often attended by “birther” activists.

“[White supremacists] see those people as their natural constituency: an angry, white backlash movement to the political changes we’ve had,” Beirich says.

Argabright takes what might be called a pragmatic attitude for a white supremacist toward race issues in America—“we all have to get along, but that doesn’t mean we have to sleep with each other and have each other’s babies”—and says Frontline Aryans may focus more on issues that have more yield: immigration and LGBT rights.

These are issues still lacking national resolution: The Obama White House and the Democratic Congress have not yet tackled immigration reform, and gay marriage remains a growing issue across the country. That’s good for Argabright’s group.

“I think immigration and homosexuality seem to have lit a real good fire [under white supremacists],” Argabright says. “It may not always be a raging fire, but the coals are always burning…I foresee us pursuing those as long as we possibly can and then our next goal is to get [Obama] out of office.”

Argabright realizes that being a white supremacist—an open one who wears Germanic tattoos and white pride T-shirts—tends to discredit his ideas.

“I could probably come up with a way to get us out of the deficit in a heartbeat,” Argabright says. “…But the minute someone catches wind of ‘white pride,’ it will get smashed down right away because no one wants to be associated as a hatemonger or a hate group.”

Yeagley’s thickheaded view of race and evolution

from the Bad Eagle journal

Today, Bad Eagle dot org thought we’d take a look at David Yeagley’s peculiar brand of “reasoning” that seems to lead him to rather “interesting” conclusions albeit faulty ones. Much of the piano doctor’s blogger efforts revolve around race preservation for a mythical subset of beings called “whites” which of course do not really exist. Looking at the question from an evolutionary standpoint however, all humans are mixed, and any assertion of a pure “white race” is unsupported and unfounded speculation.



"No wonder nobody will play with you
if you insist on being white all the time."
YEAGLEY — “Is there a reason for race? We humans come in several varieties. Why? Is one better than another? What is the real function of race? I developed a course called “Psychology of Race” in 1997 for Oklahoma State University-OKC. It was a 2000-level course, designed to account for the existence of race and thereby to understand its purpose” (2003).
After reading this statement above, it’s no wonder Yeagley was fired from teaching anyplace. The ignorance of science shown above is astounding. Race, if there is such a thing (which is open to serious debate) would necessarily be the resultant product of a long evolutionary process of breeding by selection. In our case, nature was doing the breeding, not humanity, thereby defining this long hereditary process as “natural selection” as opposed to some other form of purposeful breeding. In other words, nature did it, and it seriously has no real purpose other than the hereditary continuation of life. To posit a “purpose” for race, ignores the basic understandings of science and evolution.
YEAGLEY — “I surveyed creation myths of the different cultures in the world, and also considered the basic scientific version of natural origins. I presented evolution as just the latest theory of origins. I thought logic suggested those humans who lived much earlier than we, obviously lived closer to whatever the origins were. They should have had a better idea of how things came about, or at least an idea to be considered equally valid as any that we now concoct” (2003).

This next statement above is completely laughable, and in fact I did laugh out loud when I read it. Again, Yeagley exhibits a fundamental lack of understanding in both logical thinking and evolutionary science. The so-called “theory” of evolution is actually an undisputed fact in normal conversation, it is only a theory in the scientific sense. In science, all posits of fact are theories because they are all subject to verification and peer review even if the evidence overwhelmingly supports the hypothesis.

For example, from a scientific view, it would be a “theory” that water boils at a consistent temperature, under a consistent barometric pressure and altitude. The exact tempertaure of boiling water is a fact, of course, but in scientific terms it’s labeled a “theory” even though it’s provable maybe 99.99% of the time. In other words, the evidence is so overwhelming that the temperature of boiling water is treated as a certainty — a fact.

Similarly, evolution is an overwhelmingly proven fact. Yeagley has mixed up a commonplace understanding of the word “theory” with the more rigorous scientific use of that term, without even realizing it. No wonder he was “let go.”
YEAGLEY — “St. Paul quotes Moses ... The reason for different nations (races and cultures) is to keep man separated, so ‘that they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him and find him.’ ... But race does have a divine purpose. We should seek to fulfill that. To toy with race like we do, seems ominous to me ... so why make such desperate efforts to bring together that which God has declared separate, like race?” (2003).

Above, we finally see the crux of Yeagley’s imagination regarding race, that it is a theological and biblical “religious” category, not a biological or evolutionary consideration as in scientific inquiry. What Yeagley asserts is almost entirely bad science and unsupported religious proselytizing. No wonder his blog is suffering from inactivity, infighting and political marginalization. Yeagley has simply made his already mythical identity into something even more irrelevant. So long Bad Eagle.

Yeagley an acorn fallen close to tree

Some weird stuff is happening in Oklahoma. Weird attitudes, out-of-step moralism, and ultra-wacko social policing. It appears that Yeagley's nut has not fallen far from the tree. Check out this latest bit of wacko-jacko news. I'd like to see Yeagley try to survive in a big cosmopolitan city like San Francisco! Welcome to the big bad world David.

OKLAHOMA GOP RESOLUTION BLAMES RECESSION ON GAYS, SECULARISM, "DEBAUCHERY"

A resolution introduced in the Oklahoma legislature by GOP State Rep. Sally Kern blames the nation's economic woes on gay pride celebrations, lack of public prayer, abortion and "debauchery."

Dr. Ed Buckner, president of American Atheists, said that the bizarre claim "betrays not only intellectual bankruptcy, but insults the intelligence of voters in Oklahoma and the rest of the country who want real solutions to the serious economic difficulties that face our nation. The resolution offered is not only counter-productive, it severely misquotes key founding fathers. Jefferson, Franklin, Madison, and probably Washington as well would be appalled at being falsely claimed by these anti-American yahoos."

The "Oklahoma Citizen's Proclamation for Morality" singles out President Obama for recognizing June as LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual and Transgendered) Pride Month, and charges that America is economic peril because of "abortion, pornography, same-sex marriage, sex trafficking, divorce, illegitimate births, child abuse and many other forms of debauchery."

"With all of the recent scandals involving self-righteous politicians, I first thought this Resolution was talking about religious Republicans," quipped Dave Silverman, Communications Director for American Atheists. "Political leaders, especially those wrapping themselves in the rhetoric of the religious right, are the last people who should be trying to dictate how Americans should live their lives."

Mr. Silverman expressed skepticism that the measure would be approved, though. The Religious Right is in their last throes of life, and this is just their latest attempt to make news and get attention. This is unimportant, not only because it means nothing, nor because it will do nothing, nor because it will promote yesterday's bigotry, but rather because it is just plain ridiculous. This is not an issue to fight, but rather one to watch with amusement, and to remind us of how far we as a country have evolved.

The Resolution ends with a call for God to "have mercy on this nation, to stay His hand of judgment and grant a national awakening of righteousness and Christian renewal as we repent of our great sin."

Edwin Kagin, National Legal Director for American Atheists, said that Rep. Kern's Resolution "is all about Demagoguery, not debauchery."

"Once again, we're blaming complex social problems on the religious right's idea of sinful behavior," said Kagin. "It appears that Rep. Kern and her supporters know less about economics than they do using religion to promote a theocratic social agenda."

AMERICAN ATHEISTS is a nationwide movement that defends civil rights for Atheists; works for the total separation of church and state; and addresses issues of First Amendment public policy.

Yeagley Loses Again, No Surprise There

North Dakota Bars Racist Indian Masco

After several years of fighting to keep sports teams named after Indians – despite arguments from Native American groups that such labeling is offensive and racist – another university is being forced to drop its Indian head logo.

In North Dakota, the Board of Higher Education has agreed to squash the University of North Dakota’s Fighting Sioux nickname, following the campus’ decades-long dispute. But, if leaders of North Dakota's Standing Rock and Spirit Lake Sioux tribes grant permission by Oct. 1 for the university to use the name and logo – a profile of an American Indian man with feathers and streaks of paint on his face – the mascot could still be saved. That seems unlikely since tribal leaders have been fighting the matter for at least three decades. If no permission is given, the logo will be retired eternally beginning August 2010.

"This has been a long-standing tradition at UND, and I think the board action now instructs the university to develop new traditions," University of North Dakota President Robert Kelley told The Associated Press.

It appears that the university’s decision wasn’t based entirely on altruism. UND has been seeking to join the Summit League, an 11-member NCAA Division I conference that is seeking a 12th school, but the logo dispute has been an obstacle.

"What this permits the University of North Dakota to do is to start a marketing initiative," Kelley said. "Over time, I think we would see enhancement of our revenue structure for athletic programs. I think we would see the enhancement of fan interest."

The University of North Dakota has called its sporting teams the Fighting Sioux since 1930; the nickname replaced Flickertails. Supporters of this and other Indian monikers have argued that they are meant to honor Native Americans. Others say they are racist and demeaning and dehumanize Indians.

In 2005, the NCAA declared the Fighting Sioux a “hostile and abusive” nickname, barring the University of North Dakota from all NCAA postseason tournaments until it changed it.

North Dakota isn’t the first campus in recent years to change its nickname to something less demeaning to Indians.

St. John's, the largest Catholic university in America, dropped its "Redmen" nickname in favor of "Redstorm"; University of Tennessee at Chattanooga discontinued the use of its "Chief Moccanooga" mascot; Miami University of Ohio (Oxford, Ohio) dropped its "Redskins" nickname; the Iowa Civil Rights Commission passed a Resolution Opposing the Use of Native American Images, Mascots, and Team Names in Iowa; West High School in Oshkosh Wisconsin retired its Indian-themed mascot; Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts decided its sports teams would no longer be known as “Mohawks”; Southeastern Community College, in West Burlington, Iowa, dropped the "Indian" association to its "Blackhawk" nickname and changed it to reflect a bird of prey, the "Black Hawks"; Martin Methodist College in Pulaski, Tenn., changed its sports team nickname from "Indians" to "Redhawks."

There have been other examples of institutions taking a more sensitive approach. For example, several newspapers that have adopted guidelines barring the use of such racial slurs as “Redskins” in describing sports teams.

Stand Strong Against Bad Eagle Hate

Don't accept the mean-spirited talk of the unsupported and fictitious Bad Eagles of the world. David Yeagley and his ever-fewer cohorts are heading for bygone days, with less influence and even less integrity it would seem. If you are as disgusted with the great white pontificator's diatribes as we are, then do us all a favor and stand strong against hate. Aho.

Yeagley still trying to change his brown eyes blue

from the Bad Eagle journal

Some things never seem to change, enit? Too much white flour aids diabetes. Too much white power degrades treaties. Just look at two of the hispanic-blooded piano doctor’s latest whining-o-pinings:

YEAGLEY — “The long arms of the American political ‘ape’ have reached the Orient. Communist-based racism...This is a sure formula for the dissolution of nations... you will have supreme sexual desire for the Negro, and you will render complete cooperation with his every desire. You will be his slave... his reign is endorsed by the alien black African Communist in Washington... This is true racism” (Jan 2009).

YEAGLEY — “regarding blackness of Hussein & Co. is of course an unspeakable insult and denigration... deeply sinister and racist... doting over a cute little company of chimpanzees who seem so wonderfully human... Hussein’s utter lack of qualification... only show the most denigrating, humiliating, racist attitude the world has ever seen” (Jan 2009).

Right, so an already multiracial nation will be dissolved because of multiracialism? That makes absolutely no sense on a pure logical level, let alone on a cultural one. Strike 1 Yeagley.

Two, giving adequate consideration to the historical ill treatment of Blacks in America, is tantamount to uncontrollably humping your way through the entire Black population? This is utterly ridiculous. Strike 2 Yeagley.

And finally, insinuating that to be a “non-racist” is to “ignore Obama’s Black heritage” is all together stupid. We can easily celebrate a Black president without giving up our critical thinking skills regarding his character and performance in office. We are way more capable and sophisticated then Yeagley’s ranting suggests. Strike 3 Yeagley, you’re out to lunch.

Rather than give in to the hatred spewing forth from the great white pontificator, it would be far better to redirect your attention toward creating better solutions with ALL of our neighbors, celebrating our unique cultures, racial differences in solidarity. Maybe if we started doing that more often, instances of white power racism like this one (below) might be less prevalent.

5 accused of beating Hispanic teen in hate attack
Associated Press - April 4, 2009

SLOATSBURG, N.Y. (AP) - Five white teenagers in suburban New York are accused of shouting "white power" while kicking and punching a Hispanic teen. Ramapo police say the 17-year-old Hispanic male was treated for a laceration and concussion. Detective Lt. Brad Weidel says the teenagers were together at a party on March 28 in the woods near the municipal water tower when a fight broke out. He says the white teens targeted the Latino, shouting "white power" as they assaulted him.

My suggestion is to start practicing tolerance instead of segregation. Learn to appreciate our differences, not ignore them or try wishing them away. Embrace our uniqueness and our diverse cultural make ups. As a start, consider adopting this program in your school, your community, even within your tribe. Aho.





Fair is Fair: Introducing Kids to the Idea of Environmental Racism
by Ellen Friedrichs

April 2009 -- In this lesson, students will participate in an activity designed to simulate the inequity of environmental racism. They will also have a chance to explore various ways children can get involved in these issues.

Objectives:

• Students will explore the concept of environmental racism through their own experience of fairness.

• Students will learn about various environmental hazards and the fact that certain communities are affected more than others.

• Students will see that they can be empowered to change their communities by learning about young people who took a stand, and by creating materials addressing environmental concerns.

Framework:

Environmental racism is a term that was coined by Rev. Benjamin Chavis, who conducted a study which found that communities of color are more likely to bear the brunt of environmental hazards than are white communities.

That study found that these environmental disparities occurred because of lax enforcement of environmental rules and regulations, as well as the placement of landfills and dumps and the disposal of hazardous waste in minority neighborhoods. The problem is compounded by the fact that members of affected communities are seldom found on city councils, planning committees or regulatory boards.

For younger children, linking the concept of environmental racism to their own understanding of fairness will help them grasp the injustice of this practice.

Yeagley so mad he sees white!

from the Bad Eagle journal

White supremacists are sure in an uproar about Yeagley’s great new AMERICAN PATRIOT, the President of the United States, Barack Obama, our Commander-in-Chief.

Yes, it truly is challenging to be a Republican these days, how to overcome the inherent racism by a white supremacist faction?

From the quotes below, we can easily see that Yeagley is part of the extreme faction of white supremacists, and not really part of the GOP proper.

But also, take a gander at the article far below (after the two Yeagley quotes), for some better perspective on how to view Yeagley’s rather self-destructive — and quite anti-American — pontifications. Our country was NOT raped, Obama IS a natural born citizen, Obama is NOT a communist, our voting for him was NOT treason, and blacks are NOT a miserable race. So why all Yeagley’s hate? The answer: Yeagley’s apparent white supremacy, it seems to taint everything he sees.

From his blog:

YEAGLEY — “I despise the ideas and purposes of B Hussein O, and will work against him in every legal way... Hussein is a fluke and a fake... the ignorant and misinformed public was basically "willingly" raped by this pretender? ... He is a profound enemy of the country” (Dec 2008).

Posted by Yeagley at Stormfront:
YEAGLEY — “How could America elect a foreign black Communist? How could the majority of the population be so deceived? How could the nation commit treason against itself? ... Americans voted for an African black to assuage their pity for the miserable race” (Nov 2008).

Racists Threaten To Abandon GOP Over Election Of First African-American Party Chairman
February 4, 2009

It’s not easy being a white supremacist these days.

Already reeling from Obama’s win in November, believers in white superiority were dealt another blow last week when former Maryland Lt. Gov. Michael Steele became the first African-American to head the Republican Party.

Extremists view Steele’s election to the helm of the Republican National Committee as a betrayal by the party that many considered, in their words, “the lesser of two evils.” On blogs and online forums, they excoriated the Republican Party for supposedly pandering to minorities while abandoning what they see as its white base.

No one professed more outrage than David Duke, the ex-Klan boss and former Louisiana state legislator. “GOP traitors appoint Obama Junior as Chairman of the Republican Party,” proclaimed the sub-headline on his website.

Yet ever the optimist, Duke saw a silver lining in Steele’s election, just as he had in Obama’s win. “I am glad these traitorous leaders of the Republican Party appointed this Black racist, affirmative action advocate to the head of the Republican Party because this will lead to a huge revolt among the Republican base,” he wrote. “As a former Republican official, I can tell you that millions of rank-and-file Republicans are mad as hell and aren’t going to take it anymore! We will either take the Republican Party back over the next four years or we will say, ‘To Hell with the Republican Party!’ And we will take 90 percent of Republicans with us into a New Party that will take its current place!”

Despite such rhetoric, white supremacists seem to be doing more whining than strategic planning. The Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white nationalist organization descended from the pro-segregationist White Citizens’ Councils, complained that Steele supports affirmative action, gun control and “more Federal handouts.”

Under the heading “GOP continues shooting bullets into it’s [sic] own corpse,” the CCC wrote: “Meet the new improved GOP. Steele’s supporters actually believe that having a black chairman will cause the media to be nice to them and blacks to leave the Democratic party [sic].”

Vdare.com, an anti-immigration hate website, called the election of Steele a “disaster” and weighed in with a blog post titled “RNC to White Men: — Off” that referred to Steele as a “professional Black” and called white Christians “the new Slave class.”

“Apparently Chairmanship of the Republican National Committee has become another of those positions, like being head of an Ivy League School or Governor of the Federal Reserve, to which white men of Christian heritage Need Not Apply,” fumed the writer of the post, Patrick Cleburne.

James Edwards, host of the white nationalist radio show The Political Cesspool, blogged that the Republicans were trying to “outpander” the Democrats — a strategy he said would fail as more white conservatives stopped going to the polls. “Now they’ve got a black man heading up their party, just like the Democrats do, and the GOP couldn’t be happier. It simply wouldn’t do to have a white chairman. Not with a black man in the White House heading up the Democrats.”

And the League of the South, a neo-confederate hate group, blasted Steele for reaching out to moderates in a blog post titled “New GOP chair to Southerners and conservatives: drop dead.” It concluded: “Remind me again why I should vote Republican?”

David Yeagley's New President!!!!



Jan. 20, 2009

Dear Friend,

From my office here in Montgomery, I can see the church where Dr. King helped launch the civil rights movement more than half a century ago. As my colleagues and I at the Southern Poverty Law Center gather to watch the historic inauguration of Barack Obama, I can only imagine the sense of accomplishment that Dr. King would feel were he alive today.

But I know that sense of accomplishment would be tempered by an acknowledgement of the work that remains to be done. When Dr. King was killed in Memphis, he was on a campaign to divert our country's resources away from war and toward programs to expand opportunity for all. That agenda — ending war and using our strength to create a more just society — is one that still occupies us today.

The inauguration of Barack Obama is a true milestone — an important measure of how far we've come as a nation. But what is more important is where we go from here. Let us celebrate this day. But let us remember the work that remains to be done.

Sincerely,



Morris Dees
Founder

Yeagley: Good Ole White Boy

from DavidYeagley.org


David A. Yeagley's New President and First Family!

Bevery Isaac, a TRUE Comanche, once against tears apart white-supremacist-posing-as-part-Comanche David Yeagley.

Was just reading again and came upon another group that Yeagley is published on, The "White Boy Society", imagine that. Membership is Any White Male, this was a link off of the John Birch Society/David Yeagley.

Yeagley has NEVER apologized to the Comanche People for his involvement in this Danish Doc. If he ever runs again for any position, I will make sure ALL his involvement with these people are brought forward. He will say he is attending these meetings because he wants to keep on top of the "Enemy", or some such nonsense. He has nothing but false public praises for the Comanche Chairman and Tribal Administrator on his site at this time, yet still puts the Indian People as a whole on the bottom of the barrel. These men are just too busy to pay him attention, but they do need to know of his devious anti-Indian involvements. I believe the Chairman is aware of them, in fact I know he is!

Also if he is a member of the White Boy Society, their stance "WE MUST SECURE THE EXISTENCE OF THE WHITE PEOPLE AND FUTURE FOR WHITE CHILDREN" that in itself is a racist view by any standards. If in fact Yeagley believes in the Comanche People, why does he not create for all to see and join in the "COMANCHE INDIAN BOY SOCIETY"?

I know why, because he is not really into being Indian at all, just into using the claim to a little blood quantum he can derive finances from. Why should he form a club for the Indians, it would be too much work and a waste of his precious white time, besides that he would have to rub shoulders and shake hands with the dirty, pitiful, beastly boring brown people, malcontent, lying, alcoholic, bottom of the barrel Indian men, people who are not worthy of speaking up for themselves because all we do is whine, professional mourners, and professional protesters.

Yes you people who read this, these are David Yeagleys' own words against his own Indian People and there are a lot more negative statements. He rarely makes a positive statement for anyone other that his white supremacist friends.

He believes that because the Native American speaks up, we are professional protesters and anti-American. All the hate has been overcome a long time ago, but because we choose to speak up and out does not make us Anti-American. Every person living in America has Freedom of Expression. We don't consider ourselves Victims, but he constantly uses that to describe our Freedom of Expression. We are learning our past. I call that taking responsibility, educating yourself for your children, grandchildren for the next seven generations, if not us who will do it using the Truth the Indian Way, the American Indian Way!

The Indian Wars are Past, we learned how to eat dirt and survive, we did not starve, we are still here, the Indian Wars are Past.....or are they?

Yeagley assumes the responsibility that no one gave him, to speak for the Comanche People, to compare Columbus with the Comanche People, to be an activist in our Name. No one gave him that position, no person can do that for a Tribe, but the Tribal Chairman, Yeagley assumed too much, but that is his arrogant, narcissistic, self-righteous White Way!
