Churchill lies on camera

Comment:  Three lies caught on video:

1) Churchill claims there's no controversy about his being Indian among Indians. Wrong...there's a huge controversy about it among everyone, including Indians.

2) Churchill says "self-evidently, I am [an Indian]." There's nothing self-evident about it. Most people would guess him to be a white hippie leftist.

3) Churchill cites his associate membership in the United Keetoowah Band. Here's what the tribe had to say about that:

Tribe snubs prof

Cherokee band says Churchill's claim of membership a fraud

By Charlie BrennanWard Churchill's claim of membership in the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians is fraudulent, according to a scathing statement released by the tribal office.

The statement, issued May 9 in the name of the tribal leader, Chief George Wickliffe, and posted on its Web site Tuesday, does not mince words:

"The United Keetoowah Band would like to make it clear that Mr. Churchill IS NOT a member of the Keetoowah Band and was only given an honorary 'associate membership' in the early 1990s because he could not prove any Cherokee ancestry."

The tribe said that all of Churchill's "past, present and future claims or assertions of Keetoowah 'enrollment,' written or spoken, including but not limited to; biographies, curriculum vitae, lectures, applications for employment, or any other reference not listed herein, are deemed fraudulent by the United Keetoowah Band."

Churchill going around and using this to claim that he is a "Real Indian" is as moronic as it would be if President Obama going around and touting his honorary degree from Notre Dame as part of his academic achievements.

Ward Churchill should be spelled like this: Arrogant Prick.

If I saw him, I'd just say hippie too. That said, nobody asks David Yeagley for proof of his ndn heritage.

Speakimg of David Yeagley, I have to say that fakie from is worst than Churchill--, this is because Yeagley is hardliner right extremist but in any given case, they're both just as bad. I just wish that the Camanche Tribe would be more vigorous in their position to denounce Yeagley as an authentic Commanche Indian. Maybe even go as far as to say he isn't a member, surely we all know that, but the mainstream Conservatarded whites? Probably not, they buy into his crap, like a pack of zombies

Yeagley is probably no worse than Ward, who is a hardliner left extremist who has a lot more people buy into his crap than Yeagley does.

Actually, people have often asked David Yeagley for proof of his Comanche heritage. For some evidence of this, go to
