History of the Mohawk Warrior flag: a legacy of lawlessness

Warrior flag w/masked native, Caledonia, 2006Some native militants have claimed the Mohawk Warrior flag is merely a benign ‘Unity Flag’ of peace with no sinister intent or symbolism despite its long and highly visible association with extreme violence, intimidation and criminal activity in places like Oka, Akwasasne and Caledonia.

Not only is this claim highly dubious on its face, the birth of the Mohawk Warrior flag flag in violence and criminality has been well documented in a Masters thesis by a Concordia University student named Kahente Horn-Miller who “…is Bear Clan Kanienkehaka and lives near Montreal Canada on the Kahnawake Mohawk Territory…”

Funniest interview ever! SUN TV’s Brian Lilley exposes the wonderfully whacky world in the head of ‘No One is Illegal’ organizer Luam Kidane

Sometimes you just have to take a break from reality to have a good laugh. It’s good for the soul, and this interview by Brian Lilley of SUN News TV fits the bill perfectly as he exposes the wonderfully whacky world inside the head of anti-everything Luam Kidane from the ‘No One is Illegal’ organization:

Salvador Dali - The Great Masturbator (click for high res version)The consensus in my circle is that Lilley deserves some kind of journalistic achievement award for keeping a straight face as long as he did. He couldn’t suppress his laughter, however, when Kidane declared that Canada was a white supremacist country that wasn’t a “legitimate entity.”

Kudos to London Free Press for Worthington’s ‘Truth and Consequences’ feature page re Caledonia, Islamic appeasement

Palestinian flag (red, white, black & green) flies on Douglas Creek Estates occupation site in Caledonia underneath Mohawk Warriors flag (red & yellow)The London Free Press today published a remarkable, full-page feature to highlight Peter Worthington’s ‘Truth and its Consequences’ column which connected the dots between the intimidation of victims in Caledonia, the persecution of Islam critics in Europe and our application of Dr. King’s teachings to confront extremists and their enablers.

London Free Press, page B3 (full page): ‘Truth and Consequences’

The hard copy of the LFP page – which has not been published online – has Worthington’s column in a box on the left side beside a large close-up image of a woman wearing a burka. Underneath, across the full width of the page, is a large photo of the occupation site in Caledonia, and below that is a smaller photo showing a riot in Pakistan.

The  title is ‘Truth and Consequences,’ and the tagline reads:

‘PROTESTS: Around the world are people under pressure to watch what they say or face incarceration’

The giant photo of the burka woman contains a quote from Denmark’s Lars Hedegaard:

“Hundreds of thousands of little girls in Muslim majority societies have been sold into marriage with much older men…” Historian Lars Hedegaard

My letter to the Editor of the London Free Press

I submitted the following letter to the editor of the LFP for their consideration. I have not yet been advised if it will be published.

Re: Worthington’s ‘Truth and Consequences,’ Feb 14/11

I am profoundly grateful to Peter Worthington and to the London Free Press – and other media in Canada, Europe and Israel – for running this column, and especially for devoting an entire feature page to it for two reasons:

STOP THE PRESSES! Journalist bites dog at Steyn-apalooza!

Steynapalooza banner

‘If a dog bites a man, that’s not news. If, however, a man bites a dog, that IS news’
Journalism maxim (author unknown)

First things first: about last night’s Steyn-apalooza event…

I’d never read a word written by Mark Steyn until just recently, so I didn’t know what to expect from him during last night’s performance/lecture. He had me laughing so hard I was crying, especially at the dimwitted journalists who have, apparently, changed his name to ‘Controversial Author Mark Steyn’ (rather like ‘The Artist Formerly Known As Prince’) for having the audacity to criticize barbaric Islamic practices such as stoning women to death for adultery, and female circumcision. 

Natasha of ‘Moose & Squirrel’ has provided a great overview of Steyn-apalooza so rather than recount it here myself, I’ll let you read hers (and some others) after offering up some personal tidbits:

Healing Two Communities: What Now?
[complete series PDF, 7p]

by Doug Fleming, Merlyn Kinrade, Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas

Ed. note. Between June 24-30, 2009 the Tekawenakke published several stories in our on-going coverage of the Caledonia conflict which might lead some readers to believe that members of the CANACE (Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality) organization, which has advocated on behalf of the residents of Caledonia, includes members or associates with Neo-Nazi, KKK or other white supremacist ties. The Tekawennake wishes to clarify that we have no evidence that Doug Fleming, Merlyn Kinrade, Gary McHale or Mark Vandermaas are associated with or sympathizers of such groups, and offer the following Op-Ed as the first in a two-part series giving them the opportunity to communicate their purpose and agenda in their own words.

From the very beginning we have never believed that those who committed acts of lawlessness in Caledonia represented Six Nations or aboriginal people as a whole. That belief was reinforced by Councillor Helen Miller’s letter of July 14/09 in which she stated that “the majority of Six Nations people who I’ve spoken to are fed up with the protests, fed up with these groups of people and individuals claiming to speak for them and fed up with the smoke shops on Highway 6. So people who fear another Caledonia can put their fears to rest.” This was confirmed when Council voted to revoke the negotiations lead from the Confederacy to go in a ‘new direction.’

Some supporters of the occupations in Haldimand County have tried to portray Caledonia residents and non-native activists – especially Gary McHale and his supporters – as being racist, anti-native, white supremacists.  In the beginning, it was an effective tactic. After all, which journalist, politician or community leader wants to take the chance of being associated with people who hold racist views?
