Geronimo! Liberal Indians Are White

by David Yeagley · May 15, 2011 · 23 Comments ·

Liberal American Indians protest the use of the name “Geronimo” in the Bin Laden killing operation. They think they are standing up for American Indians, but they are shilling for white liberals. Contrary to their Indian chauvinist pretenses, they have betrayed and denigrated every sense of Indian honor, and no doubt contributed to the depression and alarming suicide rate among Indian youth.

Geronimo, 1829-1909, the famed
and feared Apache warrior.

Most of this Indian protest has a feminist base. Indians like Winona LaDuke (whose mother is Jewish) articulate the perfect irony of the modern American Indian predicament, but offer neither alternative nor solution. Instead, they offer only feminist-based outrage. They protest strength and the use of any image that represents it, like the Indian warrior mascot.

Just days after the president’s announcement of the Osama kill on May 1, LaDuke was killing Indian pride on the major liberal media outlets, saying the use of the name “Geronimo” in the U.S. Navy Seal operation to eliminate terrorist mass murderer Osama Bin Laden was nothing other than “the continuation of wars against indigenous peoples.” Endlessly lamenting the military use of Indian names and images, feminists like LaDuke quickly object to any association of the American Indian with anything aggressive or victorious.

At the moment of American victory, the long-awaited victory over Bin Laden, so meaningful to so many, a few liberal Indians had to poop on the party. The liberal press gave them top headlines repeatedly. Why? Liberals want to own both sides of the issue, and to claim credit for the victory they condemn. Liberals don’t want to honor anything conservative or Republican; therefore, while the president boasted of his victory (which was actually Bush’s victory), liberals made sure their Indian allies provided a serious distraction, condemning the operation for using the name “Geronimo,” and thus giving the liberal president the needed, if but implied rebuke for daring to indulge in military victory—if even for a boost in the polls.

The liberal Indians think they boost their own ratings in “Indianness” by dramatizing any imagined wrong done to Indians. They think this is helping Indians. They think crying out to the world through media is making a better path for Indian people. They think claiming victimhood gives them a moral advantage, and thus empowers Indians to improve their status. But the only status improved by liberal Indian protesting is that of his personal, professional career. Embarrassment and shame is all he brings to Indian people.

Liberal Indians align Indians with the enemies of America, always, especially the enemies that try to control America’s speech. From the start of the American effort in Iraq, for example, naming the operations has been subject to the belly-aching of the moral manipulators. The Bush administration originally called the Iraqi effort a “crusade,” but then had to change the name, because “crusade” was considered anti-Muslim. Then they called it Infinite Justice.” But that implied that America was right, and the Muslims were wrong. Justice (i.e., God) was on our side, not theirs. That name was changed, too. Finally, “Operation Iraqi Freedom” was chosen. That seemed to satisfy the dictates of political correctness. Iraqis were victims, oppressed and denied. That status is the winning ticket for any liberal cause.

But what could the current president’s administration call the effort to kill Bin Laden, and not evoke liberal outrage?

What name could be the “fall guy”? What word would get a pass? The military operation name could not reflect any kind of superiority of the United States. What could it be? Operation Powder Puff? Operation Pink Ribbon? How about Billy the Kid, or even Al Capone?

Someone picked “Geronimo.” The two names mentioned are “Jackpot” and “Geronimo.” But we’ll never know who picked them, why, or how exactly they applied. It’s all speculation and interpretation for now. Professional liberal Indians certainly didn’t miss their opportunity to protest for personal glory and to sacrifice of Indian honor.

“Geronimo” meant victory, but, in the liberal Indian mind, it meant ‘anti-American.’ Liberal Indians think being anti-American is being more “Indian.” They don’t see how this alienates Indian youth. Liberal Indians destroy all natural aspirations of Indian young people, leaving them only closed doors and depression. Liberal Indians create the hopelessness which leads to the frightening suicide rates among Indian youth. Liberal Indians don’t see this, because they’re looking at their own professional opportunities to protest. They’re incognizant of the effect they have on Indian people.

Liberal Indians are basically white liberals, and willing to be their fall guy.

    As I grew up as a white child, all Indian names rang out to me and my friends as heroic, brave ones and we were enamored with such. How far we have fallen.

  • 2 David Yeagley // May 15, 2011 at 10:09 pm   

    Know what I think? I think the military (somebody) chose “Geronino!” because they knew they were going to feel a terrific sense of victory when then hit the target. It reflects on the victor’s feeling, not the target. They felt victorious hitting the target.

    But, we’ll never know. Whoever picked that name would lose his job if he were found out. The liberal Indians would demand he resign or be fired. Typical drama queens.

    I think it was probably Black Barry who picked the name. He does think of himself as white, you know. Nothing makes a Negro feel more equal to whites that to somehow belittle Indians, or to denigrate Indians. Liberal Indians of course play right into his hands.

    See? Everyone’s craves being white! Ha!

  • 3 Thrasymachus // May 15, 2011 at 10:20 pm   

    To BrockTownsend: Yes. My experience also.

    If White America were still what John Wayne represented — need I explain? –, the American Indian youth would be proud and full of hope and optimism, and opportunity would abound for their personal futures.

  • 4 Thrasymachus // May 15, 2011 at 10:23 pm   

    That’s what the cry “Geronimo” conveys to my mind: “Victory!” Especially in military matters. Indeed, this has its precedent in WWII. It’s an honored American tradition. How could anyone fail to know that or, more importantly, appreciate that?

  • 5 Thrasymachus // May 15, 2011 at 10:30 pm   

    White Guilt. It’s all about white guilt, my friends. This is the key to liberal power — creating white guilt. White “oedipal complex” indeed! Liberal whites hate their own forebears — and this gives them an artificial sense of moral superiority and false power. It’s all a tragically self-defeating strategy. Indian youth suffer. Also white youth suffer — especially males. I think that it’s the males among the Native Americans who also are hardest hit by this fall-out of white-plus-Indian warrior guilt.

  • 6 David Yeagley // May 16, 2011 at 1:00 pm   

    Does anyone really feel guilty for creating this nation? Does anyone really feel bad that American became so great a nation?

    Where there is greatness, there is great error. That is always the case here among men. But, why would anyone feel so badly about success that he would seek to tear down what he, or his fathers, have built?

    Something’s wrong there. Something’s not normal. What is it?

  • 7 Thrasymachus // May 16, 2011 at 1:38 pm   

    “Does anyone really feel guilty for creating this nation? Does anyone really feel bad that American became so great a nation?”
    Something’s telling me that certain persons found the creation of guilt a handy psychological tool for gaining political power and social prestige, where such power would otherwise naturally go to someone else.

    Thus: A tiny minority of Whites once held black slaves. Some of these slaves were mistreated.

    Because normal Whites are a compassionate people, the idea of the cruel use of slaves would distress them.

    So persons who could not gain distinction and achievement on their own merits turned to the expedient of accusing the general white population of the sins of a small minority of white people. This got people’s attention and became a ticket to power for these early White Oedipals.

    Moreover, this approach to politics appealed to Blacks, some of whom would rally behind these white liberals, and others who would eventually take up the cause in their own careers.

    If I, as a White, can preach and vigorously rail against the guilt of the former white slave-holders, this confers on me a special “sensitivity” and moral character that makes me superior to those other Whites. Moreover, the more Whites I can cover with the accusatory term “racist,” the greater will be the extent and strength of my feeling moral superiority.

    But this incessant “authoritative” preaching can create artificial guilt feelings in the general white population, when people are exposed to it on a daily and never-ending basis.

  • 8 David Yeagley // May 16, 2011 at 1:48 pm   

    I wonder if guilt is a kind of quick fix sense of responsibility–in a person otherwise ambiguous about his status. Assuming guilt to oneself is awfully easy to do, if one is willing. Perhaps some people find significance in this.

    Bill Clinton, lying cheat that he was (is), loved to apologize. Didn’t matter for what. Just to apologize. Gave him a sense of well-being. Confession guilt is a way of presuming responsibility, feigning nobility. A lot of fakery going on here.

  • 9 Thrasymachus // May 16, 2011 at 2:03 pm   

    Yes. I once heard a Bible teacher say that a person can even be “proud of his humility”!

    Apologies should be as private as possible. Confessions of guilt likewise, whenever appropriate. These should not involve persons outside of the events themselves, and thus unaffected by what took place.

    But there are people who want to live their lives in a fishbowl — they crave public attention, however they can get it; they live for it. Hence the popularity of shows like “Dr. Phil.” All a by-product of the television age in which we live.

    But, of course, any medium of communication can be used for his: a public lecture-hall or a newspaper.

    Many crimes have been committed simply for no greater reason than the notoriety of the newspaper headline! To get a feeling of importance and a moment of “fame.”

    The first thing this kind of criminal demands to see is the front page of the newspaper, where his name and picture are found alongside the prominent news-makers of the day.

    Instead of losing sleep over whether or not the name of Geronimo was used inappropriately in this alleged operation to kill Osama Bin Ladin,
    why don’t these brain-washed liberalism-indoctrinated Indian derelicts work together to find out the truth regarding the desecration of the remains of this brave warrior by members of a secret society at Yale University.

    One of those accused of stealing Geronimo’s skull was Prescott Sheldon Bush, father of President George H.W. Bush and grandfather of President George W. Bush. It grieves me to think that the skull of a noble and courageous warrior like Geronimo is on display in some glass case at Yale, stolen from his burial site by a bunch of uppercrust spoiled brat white kids on a lark.

  • 11 Pamela K. // May 16, 2011 at 8:35 pm   

    Postscript: I also hope that Geronimo’s skull was not stolen for some weird rituals performed by the Skull & Bones Society!

    Creating the bin Laden Reality
    By Paul Craig Roberts

    I have heard one dozen times today (May 13) from media that the US killed Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan. I heard it three times from National Public Radio, twice from the BBC, and from every TV and radio station I encountered, even those stations that play the rock and roll music of the 1950s and 1960s. The killing of bin Laden has now entered the legends of our time and, no doubt, the history books.

    The US government that told us that Saddam Hussein had “weapons of mass destruction” and “al Qaeda connections” and that Iran has nuclear missiles that require the US to ring Russia with anti-ballistic missile systems, finally told us the truth for once. Obama found Osama and had him murdered, apparently unarmed in his underwear, defended not by al Qaeda, “the best trained, most dangerous vicious killers on the planet,” but by two unarmed women.

    As I offered previously, if you believe this, I have a bridge in Brooklyn that I can let you have for a cheap price.

    The government has created another reality for us proles. We won again. Us white hats got the black hat, just like in the western movie. Fantasy is better than fact, and us good guys are on a roll. It makes everybody happy, even those who have lost their jobs, their houses, their pensions.

    So, who’s the next black hat? The military/security complex cannot do without a bad guy, or the budget could be cut and billions of dollars in profits would go missing. Without someone for Americans to hate, the show can’t go on.

    Homeland Security says the next black hat will be “domestic extremists.” The CIA says it will be the next al Qaeda leader, bin Laden’s replacement, who will terrorize us white hats for killing bin Laden. The neocon brownshirts say it is Pakistan, who hid bin Laden from us, thus protecting him from justice being done. Hillary says it is China, and as the US economy continues its collapse, more and more fingers will point at China.

    Airport Security will pat down more babies, feel more genitals, and radiate more air travelers.

    But without bin Laden, we will feel safer and more secure, which is counterproductive for the military/security complex. Obama has made a fundamental mistake. He has killed Emanuel Goldstein (bin Laden), the hate figure who justified the trillions of dollars we have blown trying to get him.

    Once Homeland Security, the CIA, and the White House decide who the new hate figure is to be, we will be off and running again.

    It took 10 years to get bin Laden. This proves that all those security experts who say that the war will last for 30 years might be underestimating the necessary commitment. If it takes 10 years each to find and murder the next two leaders, we are faced with conflict that lasts across generations.

    As I wrote previously, bin Laden’s killing serves so many different agendas that even those who don’t believe the story have hooked their wagon to it. Al Qaeda itself can no longer take credit for acts of terrorism without declaring that it was to avenge bin Laden.

    The bin Laden story is now set in stone, immune from fact. Global Research has provided us with bin Laden’s last known interview, which appeared in a Pakistan newspaper on September 28, 2001 and was translated and made available to the West by the BBC World Monitoring Service on September 29, 2001.

    In the interview, bin Laden says: “I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. . . . Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks the common American people have been killed. . . .The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which makes us surprised, but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. . . . Terror is the most dreaded weapon in the modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people.”

    But who would believe a demonized bin Laden when to do so requires them to disbelieve George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and the Western media?

    We all know, don’t we, that in America the government always has the best interest of ordinary people at heart and always tells them the truth. If you don’t believe this, you are anti-American.

    I’m an American mutt. My ancestors were German, Irish, Scottish, English(my father’s side prior to the Civil War and my mother’s before the Revolutionary War), and Cherokee (my Mother would have had enough to be considered Cherokee by the govt., but I’m 1 generation out) The thing is the US military uses Indian names as a sign of respect for their old adversaries. Paratroopers used to yell Geronimo. The Army names their helicopters after them: the Apache, Chinook, Iroquois (better known as the Huey), and the Blackhawk for example. In my hometown of Louisville we had Cherokee, Iroquois, Seneca, and Shawnee Parks. These were named this way as a sign of respect; let it go libs.

    Last I heard, the Apache’s didn’t need an Ojibwe quay to defend their hero’s. We’re not sacred cows, we’re people. No one cry’s over the injustice of portraying them Irish folk as brawlers … you know, the Fighting Irish … no one pleads the case of those men that went west to live under some harsh conditions just for the chance at a bit of gold, you know – the ’49ers.

    People want inspiration – and those, us and more give that to people. In my book, what an honor to be remembered that way. If only Providence saw fit for MY name to be remembered by an entire planet ….

    I agree whole heartedly, David, that our Nations have been over run (for YEARS!) by these Blue Star, Grand-Dragon, Rainbow child leftist beatnicks for way too long. Wanna-be’s, but on white terms. I’m sick of it.

    I was involved in the Ashiganig Autonomous AIM Chapter years back, and would have the same types of arguments with some my fellow members. If you weren’t down with the whole Socialist agenda, well …. you just couldn’t be a “real Indian”.

    I’m full blooded Matise, for goodness sake. Never saw them around the lodge, or the tree for that matter. They sure had a card and a per-deim, but not an once of understanding what our grandfathers and theirs fought for – Individual Liberty.

    Even had to defend my 9 years of service, including a tour in Iraq the first time around (’91) to some of them. Those peace lovers can get so riled up and violent; it’s fine to have an opinion – as long as it’s theirs.

    ps – to those that don’t know ….. Matise is a word from up north that means mix-blood. Just a bit of a joke. I’m French, Irish and (yeah, here it comes —) Tsa-La-Gi.

    In the modern U.S. vernacular, “Geronimo” has always been a war cry, one that was a reflection of the unyielding tenacity of the great Geronimo himself. Geronimo rocked! To use his name is to invoke his spirit. Ms. LaDuke is the result of her upbringing and her lack of a strong core of self-knowledge.

  • 18 ELIAKIM // Jan 14, 2012 at 1:48 pm   

    MTM it just adds insult to injury because Bin Laden was killed years ago on the border of Pakistan. The Prime Minister declared it on American TV in an interview with David Frost. She knew too much, as such she was murdered herself within months.

    Stone Idol Martin Luther King Jr
    The USA love their stone idols, and this one is no different. This time its Martin Luther King. Its an excellent design, very large, very impressive and very expensive. However, is it really appropriate to place such an object on the land of the American Indians? How much more concrete America? Is it really what they call it a ‘Stone of Hope?’ When you have the likes of Obama in the White House still oppressing the American Indians? When you never hear Ron Paul or other American politicians speak of them and their plight?

    How much did that stone idol cost America? Was it essential? Did the LORD ask you to build an idol to a man that was given the name king by a man? I will tell you what is essential, that the Lakotah children have shoes on their feet, warm coats on their backs, and warm food in their bellies. The first nation’s children are very high up on the priority list of the LORD, and I have been informed that many of them are living in ‘deplorable’ conditions. While people like Ronald Weinland have money in swiss bank accounts due to the tithes that he has taken from the people.

    Martin Luther King has been glorified by man, but there is more than one side to that story. Did the bible not tell you that the LORD would not give his glory to idols or a nation that worships them? [1]

    Interesting that in the book of Revelation chapter 13, it mentions the word worship and I looked at the Greek origin of the word. It means ‘to kiss a hand’, or to kiss someone like Obama kissed the King of Saudi. Its a term that relates to revering others. So whoever people revere like they revere Martin Luther King, it means that it is a form of worship. Building an idol carved in stone is worship of the idol, and people will go to Washington to pay homage to it.

    We can forgive what people did 1,000’s of years ago and accept. However, humanity today, should really wise up because the more idols that the USA built, the faster their nation is being destroyed. Just like the civilizations and empires that came before them. How dare Obama put that stone monument in a place where it does not belong. America is the land of the red man, biblically, it is the land of Esau and the men of Edom. The red hairy ones. Europeans invaded that land and took it by force, and now their idols of the descendants of slaves are built upon a land that was once free. Whatever next. Of course the USA, is the nation of the Harry Potter theme parks and voodoo festivals, and they wonder why the country is becoming desolate.

    Is there any common sense in the planning departments in the USA? America claims it is a Christian nation, if that was true the Christians would have helped the American Indians, defended their rights and lands, and ensured that not a single one of them lived in poverty ever. They would have done the will of the LORD when asked and worked together with them, sharing and caring. Not take everything from the Indians that lived free, in harmony with creation and the spiritual law of it.

    I cannot imagine how the Indians must feel to know that everything that the USA is doing and has done, is coming right back at them like a boomerang. First their land was destroyed by the Europeans, covered in concrete, forests torn down, rivers and oceans polluted. Then the Americans that are the descendants of those Europeans are destroying it all over again. Not only are they destroying it, they have polluted the land with bloodshed, and executions.

    I am sure they’re already planning to build a monument of Obama, the first African American President, to bleed the country dry. However, this time we the people can see all sides of the story, and history will not change what we know to be true.

    “When you see ‘the abomination that causes desolation’ standing where it does not belong” In Greek the word abomination is “Bdelugma” (Strong’s 946) and it means a foul thing, a detestable thing, of idols and things pertaining to idolatry. It is the idol that is detestable to the LORD, and the bible tells you that your idols will not save you. It asks you can the idol speak to you, can it help you, can it take you out of the valley of death, can it create miracles for you?

    Micah 4 tells you that all may worship their own gods in this timeline. However, was Martin Luther King a god? Is that why you worship him now that he is dead? Martin Luther King Jr was a politician, and human rights leader, he was not a spiritual leader. Perhaps if he had been a spiritual leader, then his own people would not be murdering each other in every country where they live. Obama’s involvement in Kenya and Libya is also remembered, and the violence that took place in the name of Islam.

    The Son of God told you that his heavenly Father is the LORD God of the living, not the dead. Only the spiritually dead build idols of dead men and then pay homage to them.

    “Geronimo” as the operation name against Osama; Apache and Kiowa attack gunships, and on it goes. The Indians of the past are not now, nore have they ever been, seen as individual human beings. Instead they are viewed as one-dimensional creatures with only simple traits to be exhibited….like fearlessness or savagery or brutality or cruelty. But at this stage of the game, what’s the difference. The entire structure of the Western world is crumbling and AmerIndians have a LOT more to worry about than who is using some old timer’s name for whatever reason. Read “THE TERRITORIAL IMPERATIVE” and ponder what is said in it deeply, and in so doing you will hit the bone-chilling reality of where the nation and world are going in short order.

    I do see what you`re getting at Dr. Yeagly,but a more accurate title for this piece would have been “Geronimo! Liberal Indians Are Jews”.They are the agitators and true founders of the race destroying cancer that is liberalism. While I am hesitant to recommend the writings of a so-called white supremacist to a Native American,I do feel you would get something from Dr. William Pierce`s videos on youtube.None have spoken more succinctly on the race wrecking agenda of Talmudic Judaism (notice I didn`t say Zionism) and it`s consequences for us all.God bless you.
