The deeper meaning of the Thanksgiving Holiday
24 Nov 2004
in the news

Once again San Francisco IMC was caught in the act of supporting the mistreatment of minorities. listing a free mime troop that is putting on racist skits featuring the depiction of native Americans as blood thirsty savages.
this portrayal if the native Americans culture is crude and offensive to all who are of native Americans ancestry. the insulting nature of this sidewalk skit is only rivaled by the insistence of sf editorial staff that they are just having fun and that the Indians need to loosen up.

when sf imc was contacted by Native-American-Online.Org demanding a formal apology and a retraction of inflammatory statements. Sf Imc declined to issue a statement

this is an outrage!
Here is another good link on Iroquois cannibalism
28 Nov 2004
So that Joe and Matt can stop being communist propagandists engaged in thought control, here is some more proof to back up my assertion on the Iroquois federation. If you disagree with the truth then don't be sissies. Put up some facts.

"The rise in interpersonal violence that predated the Iroquois League can be tied to a cannibal cult and the existence of villages with palisades, both of which can be dated to the mid-twelfth century. The spread of the League can be linked to the adoption of corn as a dietary staple among the Haudenosaunee, which also dates between 900 A.D. and 1100 A.D., Mann and Fields contend."

Did you look at those sources? The former alleges to be from a folk musicologist quoted in the NY Daily times 111 years ago; the latter has a single vague reference to cannibalism in the mid 12th century.

These sorts of 'evidence' are consistent with the following theory quoted in the Wikipedia ( ): ". . .the description by one group of people of another people as cannibals is an ideological and rhetorical device to establish moral superiority over them." Sound familiar?
Do you hear yourself?

"The former alleges to be from a folk musicologist "

Who would pretend to be a folk musicologist?
