"Over and over, I'll be a fool for you" - KKK Marches into Caledonia to solve "Indian Problem" at Six Nations

MNN. May 2, 2006.

Things are on schedule! The flyers in the hands of Caledonia residents, Ontario Provincial Police and a few Six Nations people reads:

Citizens of Caledonia –

Meeting tonight – 7:00 Sharp! (no location, no date)

Agenda: Discussion of the “Indian Problem”. “What is the final solution?”

Full dress meeting. Wear your sheets. (This is no joke. This is what the flyer actually says. This ain’t the movies, folks. This is real life).

Special Speaker – all the way from Burning Cross Mississippi, Bobby Lee Raspmas, Veteran of the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s.

Hear about the “Final Solution”. (How come Canada is letting him in and they won’t let Indians cross the border to support us?)

Three-fourths of the flyer has a picture of a KKK meeting with sheets on.

We were waiting for this one! This flyer was given out for last Friday’s rally and march onto the barricades at the site of the illegal housing project that the Six Nations People are trying to stop. It’s being given out again for the Friday, May 5th rally at 7:00 right at the barricades this time. full article


And finally, we leave you with these words of wisdom-in regards to the Six Nations-courtesy of the Angry Indian. Please visit his website at The Angry Indian Blog
My congrats to all the bloggers Native and Non who kept up the pressure. This blog and podcast certainly tried to do its best and we all should feel proud for what we do.

Alas, the Native Media in the U.S. still needs to learn this lesson, Indian people MUST speak on behalf of Indian people, issues and causes. Not sitting in editorial offices wringing their hands about how to address Indian stories that may offend White society. The Six Nations are sitting in the cold. - The Angryindian
