Removing American Indian mascots is a hate crime–against Indians. Removing the symbol of American Indian warriors is a legally specific hate crime. It is designed to efface the honor and memory of the American Indian.
I presented this idea to Attorney Drew Wrigley, North Dakota’s new US Attorney. The former deputy chief of staff for Governor John Hoeven was hosting Scott Hennen’s radio show, Tuesday, July 7, 2009. I was a guest, invited to discuss the renewed “Fighting Sioux” issue in North Dakota. The state Board of Higher Education has voted to condemn the use of “Fighting Sioux” logo, again. This most famous Indian mascot, used by the University of North Dakota since the 1930’s, has once again become the target of Communist dictators—otherwise known as “committees.”
“The Fighting Sioux,” the official emblem of the University of North Dakota. Removing it is a hate crime against Indians.
When I first entered the work of political commentary in 2001, the “Fighting Sioux” issue was hot. I was on the old Hannity & Colmes show, discussing it with Russell Means. He called the use of Indian sports logos “hate speech.” I say removing these historical images a hate crime.
My suggestion to Attorney Wrigley is to file suit against the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education.
Removing Indian names and images from public view is equivalent to disallowing Indians from public places. It is racial prejudice of the most visceral kind. This should be obvious, and would be obvious, but for the distorted, surreal views of committee tyrannists. Not only do they care nothing for Indians, but they actively work to destroy the last visible vestige of Indian pride. They don’t want Indians to be seen, heard, or even known about.
I must add, the current individual in the White House, the prevaricating, pretentious, alien black African Communist, has not appointed a single Indian to any significant office. He is happy to be honored by a handful of Indian leaders, but he will never honor Indians, in any way. The Negro will never allow any other “minority” to steal the show. This is the day of the Negro in America. Oh, Barry will appoint a “Hispanic” (whatever that is) here and there, but, that’s all about votes, not honor.
Communists only “use” race. They do not honor race. They wish to destroy the integrity of race. They wish to destroy the presence of race. This is a fundamental rule of the Communist play book. “Racial agitation” is merely the political use of race, not for the benefit of race or for its promotion, and least of all for the preservation of race.
“The Fighting Sioux” represents everything Communists loathe. It also represents everything feminists envy and hate. In the case of the University of North Dakota, one of the main racial agitators is white feminist Lucy Ganje. Career opponent of the Fighting Sioux, Ganje is on the steering committee of Equality North Dakota, the homosexual advocacy group. Ganje is in UND’s art department, not the psychology or sociology departments, not the Native American Studies department, yet she presumes to be the spokesperson for Indians.
This kind of mis-qualification seems typical in Indian activism. The vomitable trail of white Ward Churchill certainly reeked of the same academic stench, for which he was finally fired from the University of Colorado. (And considering the incredible lack of qualifications evident in the appointees of Barry Soetoro, a.k.a. “Barack Hussein Obama,” we can say such misqualification is typical of all racial activism.)
Communists are compulsory tyrannists. They don’t believe in choice or freedom. They want control. They want to tell others what to do. In the case of the “Fighting Sioux,” however, they may have made their case too obvious. Indians just aren’t like everyone else. Indians have refused to be told what to do since the beginning of American history. Even in tactical defeat, Indians refused to cease being Indian. Indians have refused to make participation in American society their first priority. Indians will not be removed, nor will they have their honor removed.
If handled correctly, by law, the state of North Dakota, home of the Sioux, stands in a position to preserve not only the honor of the American Indian, but the honor of America. It would be a landmark case for the state to sue its own Board of Higher Education for a hate crime. This needs to happen. It is a matter of states rights over Communist committees—which represent only their own prejudices at the expense of the vast majority.
“The Fighting Sioux,” forever! America, forever. Freedom, forever.
