More White Fear of an Indigenous Uprising in Kanada
Recently The Speed of Dreams decided to post an article that had first appeared on the personal website of Greg Renouf, a somewhat infamous former participant in the #Occupy Movement in Kanada. I made the decision to re-post Renouf’s article because I felt it was demonstrative of the paranoid fear that many North Americans have about the regrowth of the independent movements of colonized peoples on this occupied continent – in fact I had likened Renouf’s article to one I also recently re-posted from The Blaze about a meeting between the NBPP, NOI and the Iranian President in NYC).
As I had suspected it would, as Renouf is a follower of this site, it caught his attention. Now TSoD has had the honour of being targeted in his most recent article, Indigenous Racism And The June 21st Uprising… . Much to my own humour (as I no longer reside in Canada, or even on the North American continent, and as such also no longer have many links to activists there) Renouf seems to be set on drawing from this site and the comments made on it myself and others both that I am a “racist” as well as further “evidence” of the treasonous Indian uprising that he is so paranoid will happen in 17 days on Aboriginal Day.
The former is because of articles I have posted such as Howard Zinn’s left-wing White patriotism and White Working Class: Gross Parasitism which dare to give a historical materialist critique of the Golden Calf of settler leftism – the White working class. He also draws this from comments I have made that are critical of self-serving White “solidarity” activists like Alex Hundert (a man who Renouf and I converge on in our dislike) and their organizations. The later comes from comments made by geiheiscollectivewordsoundvisionpower in the comments thread of the posting of the previously mentioned article by Renouf.
In keeping with why I posted his previous article, as well as the one from The Blaze, I have below chosen to re-post Renouf’s most recent article attacking TSoD for what it demonstrates.
Finally, as a side note, I do find it somewhat humourous that Renouf described his article being re-posted here as a “(dis)honour” as I only came across his site in the first place (despite having heard of him before) when he chose to re-post my article The Speed of Dreams @ The Range and the trackback ended up in my comments approval stack. So I guess he did me the (dis)honour first. It is also comically convenient that the posting of that article seems to have disappeared from his site. This appears to have happened after I attempted to leave a comment on it telling him his description of my brother and I as “Marxists” was incorrect and that he could scale back on his fear of a Native uprising a bit, or at least one that we would be involved in, because neither of us any longer live in Canada.
Indigenous Racism And The June 21st Uprising…
Last week I had the (dis)honour of having one of my articles republished by one of the most radical & racistwebsites I’ve run across. It warmed my heart to see how they labelled me as ‘a somewhat infamous White participant in the #Occupy Movement in Kanada’. That said, they should have done their research, I quit the Occupy movement a couple of months ago- tired of the focus on political correctness over making change…
The racists [Bloggers Note: Notice the plural here – last time I checked, while I do refer to myself in my role as editor in the 3rd person sometimes, this site was run by myself only, thus it seems that Renouf who accused me of needing to do more research on him needs to do a bit more research himself] who run this site publish a number of hateful articles about subjects like Howard Zinn’s left-wing White patriotism, and White Working Class Gross Parasitism. Well, it seems they have thrown some of that racism towards me- how nice!
The comments that have come to this article are very enlightening, and they seem to confirm what I’ve beenwriting about the possibility of a native uprising on June 21st. This is unfortunate, because it would most certainly be suicide for Canada’s indigenous communities to attempt armed insurrections in Canadian cities. The last thing I’d want to see is people getting hurt.
This first comment displays a bit of a racist tinge- that said, it isn’t as bad as what comes after. More important, it confirms who the players are. I’ve written about some of these groups before- the George Soros fundedIndigenous Environmental Network who have made a lovely video predicting the uprising this year, the infamous American Indian Movement, and fauxhawk Jayson Fleury’s Native Youth Movement who are famous for their video saying “take back the land, kill the white man”.
The other organizations are on my list to research now. After a quick peek around, I can say that the Anishinabek Confederacy to Invoke Our Nationhood look rather concerning. Have a look at this image I found on their page:
These people are seriously confused. Why can’t they see that the vast majority of Canadians feel great regret for what happened to indigenous people? It also confounds me how they spend so little time discussing how they are being used by their own leaders…
As you can see from these next couple of comments, it appears to be an insult to be accused of being a white liberal in these circles. I can understand the part about liberals- I’ve read enough Chris Hedges to understand the weaknesses of the liberal class. But, judging people by their race/colour is so 1950′s! But, also, it gives carte blanche to those who are racist against people of colour.
This is totally irresponsible behaviour…
I’ve left the best part of their comments for last- it is probably the most important part of the story, because it confirms the rumours that something big is being planned for June 21st! Have a look:
The writer, Michelle Festus, is a feminist activist from South Africa, and plans to be coming all the way to Toronto to ‘support some actions’ on the 21st. Not only does this confirm that something big is being planned, but also shows us that people are coming from other countries to join in the racist mayhem! You can learn more about Michelle’s politics going to her website click here.
This last comment has really piqued my curiosity. I don’t know what she means by “ACTION’s stand in Ontario”. If any of my readers know what this is, please let me know.
So, as June 21st nears, I’ll continue my research- and will be sure to share my findings with you dear readers. This could be a very interesting summer…
