I'm told Yeagley the Indian apple is suing his Native critics for calling him a non-Indian. Apparently he was fired from his writing and speaking gigs and is lashing out.
I gather he's also suing universities, literary presses, websites, and ISPs. Basically anyone who may have published or posted a defamatory statement about him.
My informants were a bit surprised Yeagley hasn't targeted me. I've certainly criticized him enough, so I hope he doesn't come after me. But I'm not sure I ever explicitly labeled him a non-Indian. If he's enrolled in the Comanche tribe, he has a legitimate claim to be called an Indian, even if he has little or no Indian blood.
Of course, I have called him an apple, an alleged Indian, a pseudo-Indian, and the likee. Not to mention a moron, a nutcase, and a racist. That seems like more than enough to earn his enmity.
Last time someone threatened to sue me, I kicked his butt all over the map. He didn't carry out his threat, which was clearly a bluff. I trust Yeagley will be smarter than that loudmouth was.
Someone on Facebook added a little perspective:
