“Back not so long ago, when there was a bounty on the heads of the Indian Peopleo… the trappers would bring in Indian scalps along with the other skins that they had managed to trap or shoot, Trappers and hunters began using the term ‘redskin’ …they would tell the owner that they had bearskin, deerskins…and ‘redskins.’ The term came from the bloody mess that one saw when looking at the scalp …thus the term ‘red’…skin… So, you see when we see or hear that term…we don’t see a football team… we don’t see a game being played…we don’t see any ‘honor’…we see the bloody pieces of scalps that were hacked off of our men, women and even our children… we hear the screams as our people were killed…and ‘skinned’ just like animals. So, yes, …you can safely say that the term is considered extremely offensive.” Tina Holder, Blackfeet, Choctaw

Preface: On Feb.9, 2013, Scott Prentice, Owner of “Territory Media” and “Black Hills Portal” in Lead South Dakota, hacked into my “ ” account and deleted this article among all others. And why? Because for Scott Prentice, American Indians are “Savages” and “Redskins” who he considers being less then human.
It is both prophetic and ironic that a professional football team named after a famous American Indian Chief called Seattle….defeated a team who’s name historically targeted his race with a visceral scathing murderous hate inspired from the throne of hell itself.
As L. Frank Baum…”Mr. Wizard of Oz” (lauded by Jews!) once wrote, “Having wronged them for centuries we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from off the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past”.
This is information is for those folks who are in mourning because their beloved Washington football team lost AGAIN and to take note that there were American Indian spiritual Leaders who prayed a curse on this professional football team. Why you ask?
Because American Indians consider the name “redskin” a racially slanderous and offensive word equal to other racially offensive names identifying other races and cultures in a equally hateful, racist, and denigrating way. Some prime examples are of course “kike”, “wetback”, “chink”, “gook”, “cracker/honkey” and the infamous “nigger” word. Click HERE to read what a Black writer says about the “redskin” word being as offensive as the “nigger” word.
Of course history shows that racially speaking, the majority of non-Indians in their state of “pathological behavior” gleefully and proudly ignore this hypocrisy as evidenced by rulings in the anti-Indian mascot court cases including the United States Supreme Court as well in editorials in the media. Even Verizon Wireless upholds this racist name and sponsors this team using it which should be reason enough to boycott their company. Yet at the same time, this company employs hate “honkies/crackers” Blacks.
What is conveniently ignored in this quagmire of “racist double speak” is that this Washington D.C. based football team is owned by a Jew named Don Snyder. He has demonstrated that in his peculiar Jewish view, the word “redskin” is not offensive to him in the least. Of course he would call the Anti-Defamation League immediately if his people were being slandered. Add to that the fact that the majority of his players are of African American origin and that not one of them has expressed any concern with the racially offensive name of their team, what you have laid out before us is a collusion of racial hypocrisy on the part of two groups of people who’s history of being victims of racial/religious genocide is the same as that of American/Native American/Indigenous peoples. But God forbid though, if any symbol, statement, or a movie even hints of anything racially offensive targeting their race or religion!
Here is some history connecting the dots between Blacks, Jews, and American Indians that is little known and which underscores the racial hypocrisy of this issue.
Historically with Blacks, the answer might be found in the history of the Black Buffalo Soldiers who fought on behalf of the United States Government as paid “mercenaries” to track down and kill American (“Redskins”) Indians for Jewish owners of rail road companies and or to obtain their freedom as “slaves”. During this period of time, they were awarded 17 Medals of Honor by the United States Government for helping in the breaking of treaties, the stealing of land, and the killing of American Indian men, women, and children who they called “redskins”. Black Buffalo soldiers were also famous for raping Indian women.
Another little known historical factoid concerns a collective of Black troops who made up exclusively the 9th and 10th Coloured (Black) Calvary who were present during the massacre is that they brought to the Wounded Knee “killing fields” the Hotchkiss guns/cannons used to shred to pieces the bodies of unarmed Lakota Sioux men, women, and children. These troops were attached to George Custer’s 7th Calvary.
Eyewitness accounts recount the execution of the women and children of Sitting Bulls people at Wounded Knee. “Four babies had their heads crushed in and when people surrendered, they were summarily executed. This was wholesale butchery”. Twenty members of Custer’s 7th Calvary were awarded Congressional Medals of Honor for their act of butchery. After the slaughter was ended, the Black Buffalo Soldiers celebrated this mass murder by writing a song that glorified the killing of the “redskins”! Again…take note that L. Frank Baum, author/writer of the Wizard of Oz, called for the wholesale “annihilation” of American Indians.
From his Sitting Bull editorial:
The proud spirit of the original owners of these vast prairies inherited through centuries of fierce and bloody wars for their possession, lingered last in the bosom of Sitting Bull. With his fall the nobility of the Redskin is extinguished, and what few are left are a pack of whining curs who lick the hand that smites them. The Whites, by law of conquest, by justice of civilization, are masters of the American continent, and the best safety of the frontier settlements will be secured by the total annihilation of the few remaining Indians. Why not annihilation? Their glory has fled, their spirit broken, their manhood effaced; better that they die than live the miserable wretches that they are.
So what you have is a dark evil spirit calling for the extermination of American Indians…REDSKINS…and
AND…Jews love his “Wizard of Oz”! Now what if Baum called for the EXTERMINATION OF JEWS!
As for how the United States Military profiled American Indians, this statement made by a member of wrote, ” every redskin must be killed from off the fact of the plains before we can be free from their molestations. They are of no earthly good and the sooner they are swept from the land the better for civilization. I do not think they can be turned aside and made good law abiding citizens any more then coyotes can be used for shepherd dogs” Quote from Major John Vance Lauderdale, US Army surgeon attending physician at the Wounded Knee Massacre.
Other historical commentaries using the name of this professional and revered football team housed in the city President Obama resides in include, “Hunting redskins became for the time being a popular sport in New England, especially since prisoners were worth good money, and the personal danger to the hunters was now very slight” From Douglas Leach, Flintlock and Tomahawk: New England in King Philps War (W.W. Norton & Co. 1958.
This example of historical understanding of the use of the word “redskin” is clear and concise when “defining” the word in it’s real life application. ”Others say it was first used on signs at Dutch Trading Posts that listed the “skins” they bought. Among them beaver skins – and redskins. On the Northeast coast, the U.S. Government put a bounty on American Indians’ heads. People had to prove they killed an American Indian in order to get the bounty. How did they prove it? At first they would bring in a head but that got to cumbersome so it simply became the scalps. The prices paid for scalps were different depending on whether they were taken from a male or a female and whether they were taken from an adult or a child. Adult females brought the most money because they could produce American Indian offspring. How did they prove the sex of the person the scalp once belonged to? For women they would cut off the breasts and present them with scalps. For children’s scalps it was often the feet that were cut off.” From the Cincinnati Zapatista Coalition, American Indian Mascot Page.
Jewish team owner Dan Snyder has a “historical” religious peer who glorified in the “scalping of redskins”. His name was Sigmund Shlesinger, a Jewish immigrant from New York City. He gleefully participated in the genocide of American Indians as a part of the United States policy of “ethnic cleansing” on Cheyenne lands near Sheridan Kansas. He is recorded as writing…“Scalpt 3 Indians which were found 15 feet from my hole in consealt in grass…for the purpose of collecting bounty”. (American Jewish Archives, Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati”.) So you see…in order for this Jew to collect the money reward for killing a “redskin”, he had to present a “scalp”.
Snyder’s people have contributed to and been directly involved in the both the destruction of American Indians and the racially profiling of them as less then human whether it be in history, Jewish Hollywood produced movies, or in print. The first distribution of whiskey to Indians in the 1700′s was through whiskey distilleries owned by a Jew named Nicholas Lowe to take advantage of Indians in “commerce”. The first slaves were Indians…not Blacks and they were the cargo on the ship owned by a Jew named Columbus.
Recent racial insensitivity on the part of Snyder’s people includes a Wall Street Journal article written by a Jew named Kaplan who glorified the various military campaigns of “Indian killing” as something to be proud of. Another example of Jewish love for American Indians is found in the words of talk show host Michael Medved who stated that there was nothing close to a “American Holocaust” of Indians compared to that of Jews. He called Indian Nations “Struggling Stone Age Societies”. Other Jews say that there is no comparison between the Jewish Holocaust and the American.
Of course Jews like Snyder would also deny their role in the Holocaust of millions of Christians by his progeny in Russia!
In spite of the fact American Indians are ignored in this issue by those who should know better, Jews and Blacks, and that they continue to be without a government or public representative speaking on their behalf, they do have the consolation of knowing that their Creator knows the truth and origins of hateful and hurtful word and that He will continue to answer their prayers in the damning of this team and those that support it.
I will end with a little known fact about another “Redskin” hating White man… Andrew Jackson. Jackson was a Free Mason as were most Indian hating Presidents. He was also founder of the modern Democratic Party as well as the greatest Indian killer of all American Presidents. Jackson United States troops “…to root out from their ‘dens’ and kill Indian women and their ‘whelps’” (Stannard, p. 240). Jackson was so effective at rooting women and “whelps” from their “dens,” he adopted the habit of cutting off his victims’ noses as trophies to commemorate his exploits. He earned the name “Sharp Knife” from Creek Indians for his penchant for skinning victims and using the cured and braided tissue as reins for his ponies (Takaki, 1994)
OLDER ARTICLE PUBLISHED 19 April 2012 FOR JEWISH EYES ABOUT JEWISH RACISM AND HYPOCRISY TO THE MAX!
Recently I was searching the news visiting one of my favorite sites, “Israel National News”, an online Internet publication out of IsraeI. I noticed a shocking article stating that Columbus was in fact a Jew and not a Christian Gentile. As I read the information, I immediately readjusted my understanding of “American History” as pertaining to American Indians and Jews and how Jewish Racism starting with Columbus, was one of the primary sources of the political, economic, and physical genocide of American Indians.
Being Jewish on my Grandfather’s side, having lived in Israel, and as a former radio talk show host, I many times focused on issues related to Israel including interviewing Holocaust survivors.These were Jews who were victims of Nazi Racism. Even though my Jewish roots were not “official” due to the fact I have no immediate “matrilineal” connection to my heritage, I am acutely aware of the Spiritual calling and role of Jewish people in their relationship with God and mankind. Because of this part of my life, I was aware of injustice and racism on a level that allowed me to understand more fully the genocidal history of American Indians and sadly enough, the role of Jewish people in this tragic history.
From my college days, I have at one time or another been directly involved with American Indians through my involvement with and working for various Indian organizations, as well as teaching investigative journalism at Haskell Indian Nations University, living on a reservation in South Dakota, as well as interviewing dozen’s of prominent Indians from various tribes and backgrounds as a radio talk show host in Kansas City. I was also became aware of the obvious and blatant of involvement of Jews in the genocidal history of American Indians in contrast to their spiritual calling to right the injustices they have experienced from 1492 to this day and this “American Holocaust” history is discussed by Lilian Friedberg a Jewish scholar who wrote a article called Dare to Compare: Americanizing the Holocaust.
In further readings, I discovered another shocking fact that contributes to American Indian Genocide to this day and that is the fact that the first whiskey distilleries started in America were established in Newport. by a Jew named Nicholas Lowe and that whiskey was a “Jewish tool” to take advantage of Indians in “commerce”. Also, the first slaves were not African, but Indians taken by Columbus to Europe. Most all of the slave ships used in transporting African peoples to America as slaves, were Jewish owned.
I found a story on a Jewish “bounty hunter” named Sigmund Shlesinger, a Jewish immigrant from New York City, working in Kansas on Cheyenne lands near Sheridan Kansas. He gleefully participated in the mass murder and genocide of American Indians, participated in hunting down American Indian families in their homes and attacking them. His Jewish racism targeting American Indians included making sure they were murdered, terrorized, and deported in a massive ethnic cleansing. “Scalpt 3 Indians which were found 15 feet from my hole consealt in grass…for the purpose of collecting bounty.” (American Jewish Archives, Hebrew Union College, Cincinnati)
More recent are news articles published in the Wall Street Journal, written by a Jew named Kaplan, glorifying the various military campaigns of Indian killing, as something to be proud of. Michael Medved, a Jewish talk show host, states that there was nothing close to a “Holocaust” of Indians as compared to Jewish history. He called Indian Nations “Struggling Stone Age Societies”.
Then there is the scamming lying works of a Jew named Abramhoff who’s resume was pure exploitation of Indian Tribal casino monies. Abramhoff used the “F” word to describe American Indians. He considered them a “lower form of existence…they are just plain stupid…Morons.”
And on Indian Reservations here in South Dakota, H. R. Block (Bloch), a Jewish owned tax service, is engaged in racist “predatory lending” and making hundreds of thousands of dollars off of unsuspecting Indians by offering “quick high interest loans” in the name of “getting your refund sooner”. Block was sued for doing the same among poor Blacks but has a “green light” from the government to exploit American Indians.
The highest prices for food and groceries are found in two Jewish owned stores on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations…20-30 % higher as compared to off reservation stores. Single Indian mothers needing pampers and wipes for their babies have to pay $2 to $4 more per package. Formula is overpriced compared to Wal-Mart. These mothers earn in some cases less than $400 dollars a month. Is this not racism and economic exploitation of American Indians by Jewish Racism?
The point I am making, is that as I have studied, observed, and witnessed Jewish contact and involvement with American Indians, it has been from the beginning to this day, solely for the purpose of using and exploiting for the purpose of making money off of American Indians. This includes the theft of the Black Hills, the billions in gold stolen from the Black Hills and the ignoring of this by the Jewish segment in America. Jews also have ignored the “loss” of billions of dollars in “trust monies” owed to American Indians by the same United States government. But of course, they want their lost and stolen assets from the Holocaust paid back. How hypocritical.
I also have experienced only one response from Jewish people in responding to the efforts of the charity I am president of, Operation Morning Star. There have been over 30 newspaper articles, various television spots, and numerous attempts on my part to get assistance from Jewish people. Only one congregation responded in 14 years, no philanthropic organizations, no “rich” Jewish families or individuals. Yet I see the same helping other races and cultures in this country and world wide. Why is that?
Last year I called the local Jewish Community Center in Kansas City and informed them of the fact the play they were showing there, the Wizard of Oz, was written by L. Frank Baum. I informed them that Baum was a hater of American Indians after the order of a “Hitler” and as a “prominent” newspaper editor in South Dakota, he called for the total extermination of American Indians.
The response from the Jewish Community Center was that of no concern which for me, was a confirmation that for the majority of Jews in America, “the only good Indian is a dead Indian” You can see Baum’s play shown in many Jewish Community Centers throughout the United States.
To my knowledge, there have been few if any attempts on the part of Jewish people whether it be lawyers or organizations, Synagogues, let alone “rich” Jews, to be involved in reparations, economic development, let alone legal representation in personal and collective efforts to assist American Indians in the area of justice. Correct me if I am wrong.
One blatant example is in the use of racist language to identify various ethnic groups. It is not politically correct or acceptable to use the words “kike”, “wetback”, “sambo”, “gook”, “n—-r”, or .”rag head” among others. BUT it is perfectly acceptable by non-American Indians to use the word “REDSKIN”.
This racist word has it’s historical record of “bounty hunters” needing to present PROOF that they murdered a “REDSKIN”. Such proof came in the form of “mutilated body parts” such as testicles, breasts, scalps, etc. so that a they could collect their “blood money”. Any outcry from any element of the Jewish segment of society? B’nai B’rith? Anti-Defamation League? Prominent Jewish lawyers or Government officials? Say “Washington REDSKINS”! What about “Washington NIGGERSKINS”?
Three weeks ago in Rapid City, I met with Orli Gil, Consulate General for the State of Israel. On that day, there was an article in the Rapid City Journal discussing her interaction with prominent citizens and politicians from South Dakota. I noticed that there was not one individual representing any Native American organization or Nation. So I chose to call her office in Chicago and a meeting was arranged with her.
During our discussion I asked her if Israel would be willing to contribute some of her expertise in an area of “economic development”, similar to how Israel has assisted other Nations and Peoples. She brought up the subject of developing a “aqua-culture” project to raise and process trout commercially. I agreed that such a project would be one that could do two things. One provide food and the other, a business enterprise.
To my dismay, at the end of our meeting she made a very disparaging statement. She stated that Israel needed to be concerned about the “reaction” of those who might be critical of such an undertaking. I was shocked! My response to her was, why should Israel be concerned about the reactions of any group or Nation when during the European Holocaust, no one did one thing to stop the extermination of Jews. She had no answer.
But Israel and American Jewish organizations have been and are actively involved in providing economic aid, development, and technical assistance to all other races, cultures, and nations who are in need, suffering from poverty, wars, or natural disasters. But find me ANY efforts by ONE Jewish entity directed at American Indians suffering from the same…just one please!
Here in South Dakota, I have seen one of the most despicable, disgusting, and evil examples of Jewish racism directed at American Indians. It is the direct involvement of Jewish individuals in the Justice Department and FBI in the cover-up of the murder and rape of American Indians. The most glaring example is the rape and murder of Jancita Eagle Deer. She was raped by the former Governor of South Dakota, Bill Janklow, a “closet Jew”. Two weeks before she was to testify, she was found dead…murdered. According to a number of people I have talked to, she was last seen alive with an FBI undercover agent and Janklow. To this day, the FBI and the Justice Department have not questioned, arrested, or indicted Janklow for anything concerning her rape and death.
I met a Jewish Federal Prosecutor at the Rosh Hashanah service here in the Black Hills named Gregg Pederman. I discussed with him the case of a yet to be arrested prominent American Indian Movement member named Floyd Hand who raped 6 women in “ceremonies” by drugging them and that I had two women willing to file charges. He said to call him and I have twice and left messages and that was almost 2 weeks ago.
In my mind, such behaviour is in itself a desecration of what it means to truly be Jewish according to my studies of the Torah and those scriptures that define what being Jewish really is and is not. Such blasphemy may well escape the halls of justice in time…but not in eternity any more then acts of rape and murder will.
