White people don’t care whether a person is Indian or not. Why should they? But, they’re sure upset when a white person claims to be Indian. Let’s examine the case of the lying pretender at the pretentious Harvard School of Law, and draw final conclusions.
Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann, and Harvard University’s School of Law should be sued for ethnic identity theft, conspiracy to commit identity theft, ethnic fraud, conspiracy to commit fraud, and whatever other torts pertain to professional dishonesty and institutional dishonesty, to say nothing of the public denigration of American Indians. Tables turned, liberals would call it “hate speech.”
But, it will never happen. This is all only a white racial ploy between whites. It is a rhetorical game played between conservative (Republican) whites and liberal (Democrat) whites. Indian people are not part of the conversation.
Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann, feigned
American Indian, for profit.
BadEagle.com has always acknowledged the historical, phenomenological, pragmatic, and even aesthetic superiority of the White Race. BadEagle.com has recognized The Great White Throne of western civilization. Whatever sports the white race continues to play with itself, it is still the dominant force on the world. However Freudian white “Oedipal” liberal Democrats are, or however elitist, racist, and heartless they really are, their only opponents are the white conservatives, the white traditionalists, the Constitutionalists, or the true Republicans. The games begun in Greece are still white games, and the darkies of the world are only spectators, pawns, or tools. That’s just the way it is.
The white race has every right and power to make what it will of any issue that arises, or that it causes to rise. The white race has the authority to play Indian, to play with Indians, to toy with Indian issues, or to feign respect, or to make a cartoon out of Indian stereotypes.
In the case of Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann, the Harvard law professor who has defecated on every notion of presumed professional decency in American law (and encouraged others, like the Occupy Wall Street defecators) to do the same, has long claimed and continues to claim Indian ancestry without possessing a single piece of “legal” evidence that she has any. BadEagle.com has even acknowledged that she may in fact have some indiscernible fraction, but we have also maintained that she cannot take advantage of any such claim legally. She is “outlaw,” as is her employer, Harvard Law, in the whole matter.
The professional conservatives in the country have spent several weeks making every Indian joke in the book, all competing with one another for the best way to mock Elizabeth’s pretense. All these spoofs are at the expense of Indian pride, of course. It has all been nothing more than an opportunity for white people to express themselves–to each other. The Indian jokes are simply collateral damage, if viewed in the benign.
There are three psychological levels of consciousness involved here, which bare exposure:
1) the immediate, overt ridicule of another white person’s obvious pretense to be something she isn’t. This rides as “exposure,” with all the excitement of discovery of a fraud. Part of the outrage, however, I believe, comes out of a visceral fear, at least in the white collective memory, of real American Indian. It is a piquant protest, therefore, against any white person who would falsely claim the power of Indian blood, if now but for pity and its professional, liberal advantage. Elizabeth insults everything about race and American history.
2) the delicious satisfaction of ridiculing such a once fearful enemy, and rejoicing in the historical victory and subjugation of the awesome foe. Nothing makes for a better joke. It relieves the collective consciousness, to this day. (Sports mascots actually reflect both the fearful, such as the Fighting Sioux, and the comical cartoon, such as Chief Wahoo, of the Cleveland Indians.
The Fighting Sioux.
3) the subliminal adoration of, even identification with, the primordial American. The Indian is the principle element in the American Collective Unconscious. The American Indian makes America American. By life, love, and war with the American Indian, the white European immigrants were more than runaways from the failed old countries. The American Indian made the white man a new kind of man. The white American race can never forget this. In the reaction to Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann, the most American of the American whites show that the Indian still profoundly affects the white consciousness. Though it comes out in subliminal, confused, or half-conscious ways; though it is not expressed accurately, or even too eloquently, the American white regard for the Indian is the most primary of all American conscious states. The American white may pretend to have ultimate concern and pity for the imported Negro, however falsely based such a pretense actually is, but it is the American Indian that drives the white consciousness on this land.
The Indian is some deep, hidden talisman in the white American soul. The whites conquered the Indian, true. But, everyone knows it was by numbers, by superior weapons, by social architecture and planning. Of course it was not “fair.” War is not a sport. It is never to be fair. But the white man lost a lot of blood in the Indian wars, from the 17th through the 19th century. American can’t forget that, even in the socio-economic refulgence of victory and two and a half centuries of success. The white race feels compelled to remind itself, now and then, of its great, primary homeland victory. The white American still feels pride over his vanquished foe. (Always remember, there were innumerable Indian wars long before the Revolutionary War of 1776.)
Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann gave American patriots the opportunity to do just that–to celebrate their victory over the Indian. Ann Coulter recently offered her version of that same obfuscated, sublimated, but overwhelming collective consciousness. Whites have the right to use Indians as a joke, against other whites. It is the most degrading yet most exalting reaction to an opponent.
Of course, no real Indian was consulted in the whole matter of Elizabeth and Harvard. Certainly, no American Indian conservative patriot. (Suzan Harjo and Ben Campbell are deep liberals, and have never expressed the realities of Indian people in America.) Why? The Indian is in the unconscious. In the cupboard, as it were. He cannot be allowed to participate in the American patriot conversation. The Indian befuddles the conservative narrative of the American story. It is a derailing element, and white conservatives are wary of it. They don’t really know how to handle it, and don’t want to have to.

For over a decade now, BadEagle.com has attempted to contribute meaningfully to the conservative, American patriot conversation. My unworthy, liberal opponents have foolishly tried to say, “Yeagley is not Indian.” This has been their only reaction. But the major, professional conservatives have not given any space to my voice. Not really. Not significantly. None of my five articles on Elizabeth have been referenced.
I can only recognize this as the evidence that the White American patriot considers the American Indian as some profound, eerie equal, a competitor he does not wish to deal with again. Particularly the Comanche, the white man considers an awesome, conquering spirit–even as he himself.
I have found intense ignorance about Indians in every major, professional conservative talker and politician in the country. They have no understanding, no talking points, and no interest. Indians simply don’t count in the conversation. Only in moments like the feigned Indianness of Elizabeth Herring Warren Mann do the mysteries in the white personality come to the surface. White Americans are in awe of the Indian, and remind themselves, in one way or another, that they beat that bloody Indian. And they’re not going to forget that. That’s one defeated enemy whose memory is enshrined forever in the pride of the white race.
In a way, I trust the white race on this one. The Indian means more to the white American than any other people do. The white American, in all his careful, conscientious, legally confounded speech and expression, will sort this out. The Warren case only shows how much the white American really cares about the Indian, if subconsciously, and regardless of how apparently meaningless his concern is to real, living Indians today.
The Indian is inside the white man. I have said to Indians, from the beginning, this is where our power is–in the heart of the white man. We need to tap into that. If his heart is divided, then we need to unite it.
