RESPONSE TO MNN “VAMPIRES STRIKE BACK: “ONE DEAD INDIAN” BLOOD AND GORE CONDITIONS THE MASSES”
“Again–I say let my people be! [GERMANS] We have nothing to do with what is going on over there! I am amazed at how you describe us Americans’ I for one was a soldier and I dont appreciate you saying that I was trained to be a sadist and am trigger happy! We do not go to war nonchalantly! As a matter of fact most of us are scared out of minds of what is going to happen to us and our buddies! Where do you get this information from? Especially about the Germans — my mom was raised during Hitlers time and her best friend was a jewish women–where do you get off with this information? Why dont you use Stalin–he killed 30 million of his own people – more than Hitler did! Talk about how and what he did or are you too scared?
Seems to me that your spouting your mouth off! Are the Mohawks called the people eaters when they go to war? Hmmmmmm? Its easier to write about someone who has all the information right in front of you than it is to do some research on another person [[stalin]]. If you have the guts to do this maybe you will find out that the older generation in Russia is terrified to even talk about Stalin!
As far as most white people feel — we dont want your land, your energy, or anything–all we want to do is live in peace. We feel that we have done enough to the Native People of the US and Canada. I especially don’t want to see this movie your talking about–“One dead Indian” from your account of the movie– it truly is frightening! We as “The Caucasian Race” do not see the mohawks or any other native people as terrorists–maybe drunks, high on crack–what ever you want to call it but there it is–the truth—
I am sure this does not go for all native people –I have a sister who is Navajo — she is near and dear to me. I have a friend [[seneca]] here in Buffalo NY who has a daughter whom I love dearly. I worked with many native american people in the casino! They are wonderful people–
SOOOO WHAT IS YOUR PROBLEM? Seems to me that your trying to stir up a lot of emotional hate at your so called newspaper! Getting the Warriors and others fired up to fight? Hmmm could that be what your trying to do??? Sure its fine to warn people, sure its fine to let everyone know the truth
but dam from reading what you wrote–seems to me your just as bad as these corporate and goverment vampires spreading hate!
MNN response to XX?.
THANK YOU FOR SENDING YOUR THOUGHTS ON MY ARTICLE ON THE “VAMPIRES” [Sept. 7, 2006]. I AGREE WITH YOU 100% THAT HATE SHOULD NOT BE STIRRED UP AGAINST ANY PEOPLE. I HAVE EVERY SYMPATHY FOR THE “NOBLE” SENTIMENTS THAT MAKE PEOPLE WANT TO BECOME SOLDIERS. THE WILL TO PROTECT THOSE WHO ARE WEAK AND DEFENSELESS IS ALWAYS NOBLE.
UNFORTUNATELY, ARMIES ARE NOT ALWAYS USED FOR THIS PURPOSE. THEY’RE TRAINED TO TAKE ORDERS UNQUESTIONINGLY. SO THEY END UP KILLING MOSTLY INNOCENT PEOPLE. A LOT OF TIME THOSE ORDERS INVOLVE KILLING PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN CHARGED OR CONVICTED OF ANYTHING. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND OVER A THIRD OF CASUALTIES OF CANADIANS IN AFGHANISTAN HAS BEEN BY AMERICANS. PROPER CONSULTATIVE PROCEDURES [EVEN BETWEEN ALLIES] ARE NOT USED TO SOLVE PROBLEMS IN WHAT THEY CALL THE “THEATRE OF WAR” BEFORE ARMIES ARE SENT IN “TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT” BY USING FORCE.
WE ALSO AGREE WITH YOU THAT BOTH STALIN’S AND HITLER’S REIGNS OF TERROR WERE A GREAT TRAGEDY. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY OTHERS. PLEASE DON’T FORGET THAT THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE OF SIBERIA WERE CRUELLY COLONIZED BY THE RUSSIANS, JUST AS THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE WERE ABUSED BY STALIN.
IT’S VERY IMPORTANT TO LEAVE ASIDE NATIONALIST ACCUSATIONS AND TO JOIN OUR MINDS TOGETHER TO WORK FOR AN HONEST AND PEACEFUL WORLD. I WISH IT WERE TRUE THAT THERE WERE NO FOREIGN PEOPLE OR CORPORATIONS WHO WANT OUR LAND, RESOURCES AND ENERGY. WE HAVE SUFFERED A MASS INVASION AND ILLEGAL OCCUPATION. THERE ARE NOW TOO MANY FOREIGNERS AND THEIR ILL-INFORMED DESCENDANTS HERE WHO DON’T KNOW HOW TO GO HOME. WHAT DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD DO ABOUT THIS?
I AM SORRY TO HEAR THAT YOUR INDIGENOUS RELATIVES ARE ON CRACK AND DRUNK. I CAN ASSURE THAT MOST OF US ARE NOT.
WE ARE DEFINITELY NOT TRYING TO STIR UP HATE AT MNN. WE ARE MERELY TRYING TO KEEP PEOPLE INFORMED OF WHAT IS HAPPENING BECAUSE THE MAINSTREAM CORPORATE MEDIA DOES NOT REPORT “OUR PERSPECTVES”. IT ALSO SUPPRESSES A GREAT DEAL OF INFORMATION ABOUT GOVERNMENT CORRUPTION THAT IS OF GENERAL INTEREST TO THE CANADIAN AND THE U.S. PUBLIC. IT IS VERY TRAUMATIC FOR PEOPLE TO FIND OUT THAT INSTITUTIONS THEY TRUST HAS COMMITTED HATE MONGERING AND OTHER ATROCITIES SUCH AS MURDER. NOBODY WANTS TO FACE UP TO THE FACT THAT 99% OF OUR PEOPLE WERE MURDERED. WE MUST NEVER LET OURSELVES FALL APART WHEN WE SEE THIS. WE HAVE TO THINK CLEARLY AND TRY TO FIND A WAY TO GET PEOPLE TO WORK TOGETHER HONESTLY. IT IS POSSIBLE FOR EVERYBODY TO LIVE TOGETHER DECENTLY IN THIS WORLD.
