Colorado Governor Bill Owens demands that Ward resign

Colorado Governor Bill Owens, who once threatened to call out the Colorado National Guard so that the Convoy of Conquest could continue to celebrate the genocide of Indigenous Peoples, has decided that Ward Churchill should resign because his point of view is offensive.

We can now add him to the list of opinion shapers, media mouthpieces and establishment protecters who have been denouncing Churchill and anyone associated with him.

Here are just a few of them

Vincent Carroll(Rocky Mountain News)Claims indians were cannibals

Craig Silverman(Former Prosecutor for the State of Colorado)

Dan Caplis(Colorado Republican)

Mike Rosen(talk show host)

Bill O Reilly(Talk show host)Isn't this the same guy that got sued for being a sexual pervert?

And now...Bill Owens.

This gallery could be called"Attack of the angry, powerful, wealthy white guys."

Lest anyone think Bill Owens is a man of compassion, keep in mind that he likened the descendants of those massacred at Sand Creek to thieves. Owens also states, in his letter, that "words have meaning." Well, yeah, that's what we've said all along when explaining our opposition to the Convoy of Conquest. Owens didn't seem to grasp that when those words were ones that tried to justify the very structure that legitimized his sense of power-but let them be words that call into question the policies he supports and suddenly he realizes that words do have meaning. Those words have meaning of such significance that Bill Owens would like to have them silenced.

"Words have meaning..." well, then I guess it's a good thing we don't talk or write about the current developmental takeover of Colorado by former college buddies of our current governor. It might remind people of this state's history and previous land battles including Prospectville (pre-criminal Denver), Auraria, and (oh yeah!) Sand Creek.
