Pathetic Churchill'"Pathetic Pathology of Pacifism"definiton of an imposter!!!

by Ojima Thursday, Nov. 30, 2000 at 9:55 PM

Stream of facts and dialouge about the right wing connections to Ward Churchill and Russ Means. Please Read. Very interesting. We need to think about how Churchill and Means have kept AIM divided for years.

errorPathetic Professors'"Pathetic Pathology of Pacifism"definiton of an imposter!!!
by Humanifesto 4:32pm Wed Nov 29 '00
I don't know Bob Black but I disagree that genocide never happened in North America.What I do know is that his accusations that Churchill is an imposter are true . Recently several people have posted "The people doing this are hurting Leanord". That is false. The reason people are doing this is because Ward and Russ have jeapordized Leanords' case for years. Ex:Press Conference accusing AIM of murder. This helped Peltier how? Ex:Ward condemend the Walk For Justice!
I don't konw Bob Black. I do know Ward Churchill, Russ Means, Vernon Bellecourt and Dennis Banks. I know Banks and Bellecourt to be people who have paid their dues as militants. I know Ward Churchill as someone who is living off of their legacy! I know Russ Means to be a sell out.

Churchills "Pathology of Pacifism" although well written must be examined as to who the author is. CHurchill chides pacifism. Ok. He advocates a vague militancy though to which he has never participated in. the only militancy Churchill participated in ever was in killing the indigenous people of Vietnam.As military intelligence. Churchill has never done any militant action for anyone. It is interesting that a man who lives his life in the "Tony" of Boulder Colorado and has never done any action that involved more than a CD arrest. That is right. You know those pacifist officer come arrest me actions Churchill rails against? That is the only action Churchill does. Churchill has a long history of writing the history of AIM and leaving out the militants that have done time in jail. Many of you have a history of buying it.

The issue that many keep bring up that is ridiculous. "This is being done to hurt Leanord". Let us get something straight. Leanord removed Ward as spokesperson because of his attacks against the Walk For Justice led by Dennis Banks during the last ramp up to get Clinton to hear the clemency case in '94. Churchill was speaking publicly calling it a "march for money". I know this for a fact. Why isn't anyone interested in what Ward has done repeatedly to divide AIM? How did he and Means doing press conferences with Branscome last year accusing AIM of murder help Leanord? Hello? Does anyone give a damn? This led to Richard Two Elk to accuse all of them including Peltier of going after Anna Mae? He said what made him do it was his anger at the hyppocrit Means trying to pose as the good guy when he knew Russ was involved. I can not speak to that and will not as I do not want to feed that fire. The question is why don't means and Churchill care enough about Peltier to shut the hell up until Leanord is out? I cannot speak for anyone else who has written on this. I can only speak foer myself. By the way the interviews posted recently of Russ and Ward show they don't give a damn what they say and how it affects others.

It is amazing to see that Ward Churchill has once again found his way into
the web pages of predominantly white controlled media. The man who on his own been kicked off the Leanord Peltier Defense Committee by Leanord Peltier himself for participating in a smear campaign against Dennis Banks and Clyde Bellecourt (co-founders of AIM). He was a writer for the right wing "SOLDIER of FORTUNE" magazine.He taught an orientation class on the American Indian Movement for the South Dakota State Police in the mid 70's (See Jodi Rave interview in News From Indian Country). He has been condemned by Bob Brown of the All African Peoples Revolutionary Party. He has been roundly condemned by "news from Indian country"one of the oldest and most widely respected Indigenous newspapers in the US.

He supports the now right wing Russell Means (who has recntly endorsed the republican party and annouced he is opening a liquor store outside Pine Ridge (see associated press Oct 5,1999)to raise money for an Indian alchohol rehabilitation center and has resigned from theAIM 9 times. Means as well has done speaking engagements for the John Birch society as well as the Reverend Moon (CIA operative since 1952 see Covert Action Back issues for Moon/CIA Connection). He recently refused to be tried in Navaho tribal court for beating his father in law half to death (said Navaho had no right to try a Lakota). Russell is now being called the Eldridge Cleaver or Ron Caringa (former Panthers who turned into right wing evagelicals) of the Indian world.

Ward and Russ along with Glenn Morris actively and openly supported the Contras (there are pics of them with the Contras to prove it) and do not deny it to this day, even though Russ's own brother Bill was in Managua negtotiating a settlement between the Sandanistas and the Indian people of the North West coast of Nicaragua. AIM and the International Indian Treaty Council both stated clearly that Russ was acting unilaterally and undemocratically when he did press conferences with Adolpho Calero (Contra leader) in Honduras. Ward has never been involved in any major action conducted by AIM. He has made as an excuse for the Contra support that he thought the Sandanistas were unfair to the Native population of Nicaragua (so he supports the Contras? Who have been documented as killing over 100,000 people who had native heritage) in 20 years.Samosa families killied millions over the las hundred.Yet Churchill and Means called the Sandanistas a colonial government! They continued to support the Contras after the Miskito people had made a satisfactory settlement to their concerns. the thing with this is would you support Hitler because Resistance leaders accidently stepped on Gypsy toes? Hell no!
More issues on Ward of the Government, who put his hand on a bible and swore to uphold the constitution when taking his cushy job at that US gov. funded University ( I only bring this up as Ward has critisized AIM for taking federal money even though it was a seperate program with seperate status to do job training some AIM people did aside from AIM). Ward is on an answering machine tape threatening the life of respected AIM elder,leader and Wounded Knee defendant Vernon Bellecourt. He has never lived in predominantly native community. He attacked Carol Standing Elk and her mother at a public event. Has condemned John Trudell repeatedly (former national director of AIM whose family was burned alive during the unrest of the 70's).John recently spoke at the demo at the Dem Convention protest. No one questions the fact that he received tenure at University of Colorado faster than any man alive and was made director of Native studies even faster without a PHD.

He has repeatedly condemned the founders of AIM in his books (which white progressives read as the AIM bible). He followed the Walk for Justice (for Leanord Peltier) across the country saying Leanord didn't support it (Leonard kicked him off the defense committee for it). Although he claims to have a nose bleed of Indian blood he by no means is representitive of any person who has spent any large part of his life living in any Indian community (yet white people continue to bring him to their colleges to miseducate them about the AIM). He has never denied any of these allegations but makes excuses for them.

The left abandoned the true AIM who were fugitives from the imperialist US government and embraced the drunken movie star andthe college proffesor (Russ who was the voice in that racist Disney cartoon Pochahants. The lead Native role in that racist movie Last of the Mohicans a film about the last man of his tribe
risking it all to save two white ladies from the bad racist Indians with his
white buddy Danny Day Lewis).

The only one of the facts listed above Ward can dispute is that he is a cop.The rest has all been documented by the great Ward Churchill or in the public media. So all you lefties who condemn Farakahn because he is a sexist and homophobic, or Clarence Thomas because he is right wing, why are you giving Ward Churchill and Russ Means so much leeway? Why aren't you seeking out the true leaders and founders of AIM when you look to support Indians. Is it because you prefer people who support the Contras, the Republican party, and the Moonies more than you do people who have done real hard time in the struggle for justice behind bars? Are these the Indians you can stomach?

By the way don't forget Russ Means running for President with Larry Flynnt (porno kingpin) with the Libertarian Party (real anti-imperialist that Flynnt).
For the record the founders of the AIM were Dennis Banks and Clyde
Bellecourt. Even Russ's Brother Bill joined before he did. The leaders of
the AIM today are still there they have a web site AIMovement.Org they have
demanded repeatedly that the imposter calling himself the International
Confederation of Autonomous AIM chapters cease and desist. How many of you
ever heard of that back in the seventies. The American Indian
Movement has been in exsistence 31 years and was founded in Minn. Mn. where
it still exsists today. I urge anyone who would like to ask Mr. Churchill these questions the next time he is in your area to do so. I also urge anyone who feels inclined to call Speak Out speakers bureau and South End Press (his publisher) to stop promoting his garbage. How can AIM compete with a movie star who has the ear of the right wing media.
Charlene Teeters is one of the strong female leaders of AIM by the way and can be found at the Native American Institute of Art in Santa fe and is a wonderful
speaker and a powerful activist against racism and sexim.

Ward is slick they created him that way. Please see through the smoke coming out of his rear.

Critique of Means & Churchill Contra support
by Ojima

No excuse for Contra support by Means
by I pasted someones comment from Main IMC 2:45pm Mon Nov 20 '00
You are saying it was the Sandanistas who had large portions of the indigenous community working to fight the Contras fighting with them were acting as the European conquerer in this situation which would make the support for Contras more intelligible?
Excuse me it was obvious that the Nicaraguan people are almost all of Indigenopus heritage at some level. It is also obvious that it was the United Fruit Company of America and other corporations along with the full force of the United States Military and the CIA who were seen as the conquerors and invaders. Let us remember that the Samosa dictatorship and dynasty claimed the lives of millions over the decades and many of them were traditional indigenous people. The conquistador to the Nicaraguan people were the Samosas and the CIA backed Contras. Do we have to reiterate that Sandino said many years ago "It is the Indian blood that runs through my veins that justify these things that we do".
The thing that makes what Russ did so screwy in regards to Nicaragua is that his own brother was in Managua negotiating a truce between the Miskitos and the Sandanistas when Means and Morris took their little field trip. Something strange had come over Russ for him to go and do a press conference with the Contras and put the truce his own brother and others in jeapordy. It is important to remember that a truce was declared with the Miskitos as a result of that work Bill means did. The letter demanding Russ cease his activities with the Contras and Misurisata was written by Bill Means (Russ' brother). So none of these excuses have any traction.
When it was reported in the 80s' Russ stated " this may be the first time in history when Native people are justified in working with the US military".Notice he didn't say I am against the ontras and the Sandanistas. He said support the US military. We in the movement to support the overthrow of the brutal Samosa regime and decades long dynasty in Nicaragua remember well the horror we felt when Mr. Means took his little trip to Honduras to have his pisture taken with Contra leader Brooklynn Rivera. We remember the context and we remember what a public relations coup it was for the CIA and the Contras. I do not write this as somone from AIM or taking one side or the other but as someone who worked his ass of trying to support the FSLN (Fronte Sandino Liberacion Nationale) as many youth today are working to support the Zapatistas. Russ MEans was and is and always has been out of his league on this issue. You would be well served to discuss this matter with the less glamorous but better informed Means Bill on this issue.
At the time folks form AIM were working to support also the URNG guerilla movement in Guatamala to obtain liberation and are to this day supporting them. The URNG is almost 100% indigenous. YOu don't hear much about them but AIMs' efforts to support them are and have been welcomed by Rigoberta Menchu (Nobel Peace Prize recipient).
Russ is out of his league on this stuff and so are most of the contributers to this debate.

Article about Means' reservation liquor store.
from Nebraska paper


Russ Means plans to open Liquor store outside Pine Ridge !!!

Two American Indian activists are planning to hit Whiteclay liquor sellers in a sensitive spot - their wallets. Russell Means and Frank LaMere propose to open an Indian-run beer store, funneling profits into alcohol treatment on the nearby Pine Ridge reservation.

Whiteclay, Neb., is a village of few people but four liquor stores that sell 4 million cans of beer a year, most of it to residents of the South Dakota reservation. The Pine Ridge reservation is dry; no alcoholic beverages are sold there. But alcoholism is a severe problem for the people of the Oglala branch of the Lakota nation, also known as the Sioux. Leaders of the tribe only point out the obvious when they say that easy access to beer at nearby Whiteclay is a serious temptation for alcohol abusers on the reservation.

Few good alternatives are evident. Pleas by the Indians to shut down the beer trade have been met with the response that the Whiteclay liquor stores operate legally. The tribe says Whiteclay is on reservation land, but progress toward making that claim a reality has been slow.

Now, however, LaMere and Means have cut through the rhetoric to the heart of the matter. If you can't beat'em....

But join 'em with a difference. LaMere and Means proposed that a nonprofit corporation be set up to hold a liquor license for an Indian-run beer outlet. Profits would go toward building a treatment center and anti-alcohol and drug programs on the reservation.

The liquor dealers of Whiteclay don't seem to think much of the idea. (Or the competition.) One suggested that the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission might not want to add yet another liquor outlet to the town that has been criticized for selling so much beer to reservation residents.

But the store proposed by Means and LaMere wouldn't be just another liquor store. It would be a means to an end, a way of helping save reservation residents from the evils of alcoholism.

Another Whiteclay entrepreneur suggested that the store would simply be used as a profet-making enterprise for its Indian owners. That is a mean-spirited accusation, but one that could be countered by careful construction of the nonprofit organization that would run the store.

It is a sad thing to contemplate Indians selling liquor to other Indians, given past and current problems. But there are few good alternatives. At one time, some Pine Ridge leaders thought about ending the reservation's dry status and using on-the-reservation profits to fight alcohol abuse. LaMere and Means would seek the same goal while keeping the facility off the reservation proper. That fact adds to its appeal.

(Remainder of interview can be found in Interviews).
"Question: That must have changed just recently?
Answer: Yes, about three years ago, the name of the university, it was still a college then. So I agreed to teach some extension courses for them. I thought that once I would do that, and at Loneman School on Pine Ridge I would do some workshops there ... but what they assigned me to do was to teach the police force in Rapid City.
Question: Oh, really?
Answer: Yah, the guys were taking courses on weekends and shit, so they could make their rank. It was a money maker for the school. I needed the money. I was teaching the Rapid City Police Department about the American Indian Movement."

Bob Black and Chuck O response
by Ojima 4:45pm Wed Nov 29 '00
I agree with all of his assertions that Churchill is suspect along with his side kicks.
Where I disagree? Bob begins by saying that genocide was never attempted by white sagainst native people because population nimbers have risen steadily over the last 110 years. The problem with that Bob os that we forget the 4 milion Tainos people who died from Small Pox the 25 million killed in Mexico by the Spanish etc etc,
Further the fact is that the tribes had been almost completely rubbed out by 1890. Since 1890 genocide may not be as actively pursued as before.Bob accuses Churchill of being white and hating white simultaneously. I agrre with the former.

Where Churchill cracks me up is where he has all these folks reading "Pathology of Pacifism" and saying he is advocating militancy. Meanwhile he constantly takes AIM at the real AIM leaders who actually did "the Knee", Alcatraz, etc.
This college teacher who hasn't done anything militant since he killed the Vietnamese people is your militant hero?? I will take Dennis Banks everytime. Banks did it.
Churchill is the Pathology of Pathetic. Last night Chuck O who normally posts stuff I like was defending Churchill because of his writing. Chuck actions speak louder than words. My whole beef with Churchill has to do with this political stupidity aside. He poses himself as the essential militant and folks buy it, he has done nothing militant. He lives a very oppulent lifestyle selling himself as the big Indigenist. And our local university pays him to come speak for the militants. You know Chuck " Eldridge Cleaver had some good writings. He also became a right wing evangelical minister!!!! At least Cleaver is black and was actually involved in something militant. Churchill is marketting the deeds of others while he rakes those people over the coals. Where is Churchills' prison record? Where are his scars fighting the Government? There are alot of folks in AIM I disagree with alot on sometimes but they generally usually wake up or disagree respectfully with others on an issue but they have stayed true to AIM and not built thenselves up by pretending to be people they aren't. Who is the slinky Churchill to accuse Bellecourts and Banks of murder? Where are his damn scars? He doesn't have any unlees he got them in Vietnam. Churchill has never even lived in an Indian community.

Ward of the government
by Ojima 4:50pm Wed Nov 29 '00
have been in contact and friends with most of the Grand Council for over 12 years. In that time I have also had occasion to be in the acquaintance of the illustrious Mr. Churchill as well as Mr. Means. I have found the Grand Council to be the most dedicated people I have ever met in my life. None of them have ever done cartoons for Disney, supported the Contras, pretended to be people they are not, or been in a position to proffit off of their actual sacrifices at Wounded Knee, Alcatraz, the Longest Walk, Jumping Bull Ranch, or any other of the events for which they have been incarerated for. Mr. Churchill has never been arrested or been a fugitive from the US government for 15 years as Mr. Banks was.
You are talking purely from the gut of your inexperience. While Russ Means was making Pochahantas and announcing plans to open a liquor store on the border of Pine Ridge these elders were working on issues.Ward Churchill is on video admittin almost everything that has been posted about him in recent days. Many of the facts posted can be found on Russ Means own website. Such as the Liquor store post. I doubt you have bothered to travel to Leech Lake Mn. reservation (yes Mr Banks lives on a reservation unlike the Boulderite Mr Churchill or Mr. Means who lives in Santa Fe NM) to see the work he does everyday to assist Native people in building stronger lives. You have no clue at all what you are talking about.
Whether you like it or not there is a reason Ward Churchill belongs to something called the ICOACAIM (International Confederation OF The Autonomous Chapters of the American Indian Movement) and it is because he has nothing to do with the American Indian Movement (AIM). The founders who are all still part of the GGC (Grand Governing Council) today (those still alive). AIM accepted Russ Means resignation in 1985 and everyone since. Do some research Means stated in the Eldorado Sun this past July that he "was no longer part of AIM". Call them and ask???? YOU MAT BE AND ARE WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What if you and all the other Ward fanatics out there are wrong?? Don't you owe it to yourself and the rest of us to go and see. Churchill nor Means have ever denied supporting the Contras. In the Eldorado Sun interview Means bragged about "fighting the Sandanistas". Check it out. Before you run your mouth please check it out. The defense of course from Means and Churchill is that they were defending Indians. Sir 99% of the Nicaraguan people are of indigenous descent the Sandanistas were fighting against 150 years of genocide against all of the people not just some. Mr. Means knee jerk and US backed reaction to Miskito people being displaced was to support the COntras!!!!! Nicaraguas' version of Hitlers' Nazis. Would that mean if the French resistance accidentally killed some Jews during wwII you would then suport Hitler?!!!!!!Mr. Smith you are wrong. Period. Find Ken Lawrence formerly of Covert Action Magazine and ask him about how he left when uncovering these connections and CA refused to eject Ward from their ranks!
Get you facts straight.

Ms. Attaguile is a white woman who is very close to Ward Churchill
Everything in that peice was overseen by Churchill and he knows it.

The peices we have posted (about ten of us if you haven't figured it out yet)

We have used their own words against them. Their documented actions. Their stupid actions like doing that stupid liquor store opening. My God are you with that?

Dark kinight does one thing "they admit Peltier demanded they pull their peice condemning Banks and that Churchill was asked to step down. BEcause they wantr to make excuses for it. Hold on let me get that part of the article for you and post it.

This article also points out the LPDC anger at Churchills' Dark Knight Press formation. Folks the Dark nights .org site was started by Churchill!!!!
Are you now going to call Peltier who is serving a life sentence of being a cop. You people need to get some new material. Your own article backing up Churchill explodes the fact that Churchill has been put in his place for attacking Banks. Wake up!!!!!!
Here is the exerpt. Oh yeah I have a copy of the letter expelling him if you would like me to post it?? I have it scanned and filed.

Mining the same vein are the charges of Churchill's reputed "expulsions" from other native activist organizations, such as the Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (LPDC), the International Indian Treaty Council (IITC), and AIM. Leonard Peltier Defense Committee "expulsion." In 1994, Churchill received a letter from Leonard Peltier asking Churchill to either "disassociate" himself from Dark Night field notes or resign as Peltier's four-year national spokesperson. Dark Night field notes, although based in Chicago, originated as a project of those involved in Leonard Peltier Support Groups throughout the midwest region. Those on its board viewed it as a critical tool for publicizing Peltier's plight within the larger context of the struggle for human liberation. Peltier and his Lawrence, Kansas Defense Committee had a problem with an article in the first issue of Dark Night field notes that addressed specific tactics used by Dennis Banks' Walk for Justice for Leonard Peltier. Apparently, the journal's identification of someone whom Peltier had deeply respected cashing in on his name, usurping the authority of his own defense committee and diverting funds ("Free Leonard! Make your checks payable to the Dennis Banks Fund") was too painful for Peltier to credit.
