Homicide or hijacking

"There are only two ways of dealing with the white man.

One, either you pick up a gun, or you stand between the white man and his money," Terry Nelson of the Roseau River First Nation told CTV Newsnet's Mike Duffy Live on Tuesday.
Might be time to circle the wagons, Zeke.


UPDATE: So who exactly, is Chief Terry Nelson?

Turns out he's an anti-semitic buddy of David Ahenakew...
Not long after, Ahenakew’s spurious, hateful remarks were supported and defended by Terry Nelson, a chief from Roseau River in southern Manitoba.

When pressured to apologize for his racist remarks, he placed the blame “on the fact that I (he) had written his controversial letter at 1 a.m. and did not spend enough time reviewing it properly.”
Which explains why he's CTV's go-to guy on aboriginal affairs... it's not like they want someone who might consider both sides of an argument.

I guess the biggest disappointment is that when my family was busy settling the land in that area, my relatives didn't give enough "lead poisoning" to his relatives.
Land claims would have been settled at that time for good.

Terry Nelson fulfils the stereotype of the corrupt, bullying, opportunistic band chief to a tee. He is a thug.

The Courts should recognize Treaties for what they are - surrender documents.

There is no other way to explain them, if aboriginals had massive armies at the time - there would be no such thing as treaties today, and North America would probably resemble Africa or South America.

Therefore, as surrender documents, the defeated party is exactly that - defeated. Generous considerations can be and have been made for their welfare, but a centuries old defeat simply cannot be undone by our Courts today - everyone has to move on.

funny... he has a very selective problem with what he has referred to in the past, as the jewish-controlled media.

no fuss though, when it suits his own purposes.
