Osage Nation Heir Takes on ABC and Disney in Response to Paul
Infowars.com | July 6, 2005
Dear Mr. McConnell and Ms. Aviles,
I am an unallotted heir of the Osage Nation. As an American, and as a Christian, I took very offensively the remarks that Paul Harvey made regarding the US Government's handiwork in giving the deadly disease smallpox, by way of deceit, to Native Americans.
actually encouraged this type of action against innocent individuals, adult
and child, in future American wars, giving the impression that nations who
treat others fairly and honestly and NOT immorally are made of "sugar
The statement Mr. Harvey made was as follows:
Regarding the creation of America -
"...We didn't come this far because we're made of sugar candy.
Once upon a time, we elbowed our way onto and into this continent by giving
small pox infected blankets to native Americans. Yes, that was biological
And we used every other weapon we could get our hands on to grab this land
from whomever. And we grew prosperous. And, yes, we greased the skids with
the sweat of slaves.
And so it goes with most nation states, which, feeling guilty about their
savage pasts, eventually civilize themselves out of business and wind up
invaded, and ultimately dominated by the lean, hungry and up and coming who
are not made of sugar candy..."
I resent this hate-filled and ignorant attitude, especially considering that
it has come from the mouth of one of the most well-known radio personalities
in the nation, possibly the world. The fact that the use of biological
warfare is being glorified distresses me greatly. It wasn't enough to take
the land from the Native Americans. Had to rid the land of them, as well.
Couldn't even give them the opportunity to fight back, but snuck in behind,
pretending to be friends. Shameful and completely dishonorable.
Paul Harvey is advocating the same type of behavior in war against future
opponents. The fact that ABC and Disney would promote this belief sickens
A public apology from Mr. Harvey is necessary, for the remarks he made
regarding the Native Americans, for gloating over using slave labor to
establish this nation, and for advocating treating future innocent victims
of war to the same fate. I will do Everything I can to encourage a boycott
against products or services related to ABC or Disney until a public apology
is made. I will also encourage my friends and family to forward this email
to others on their own lists.
Killing innocent human beings, no matter whose side we are on, is wrong. It
is time to end wars against humanity and peace. Mr. Harvey is wrong, and
should say so.
Thank you for your consideration of these comments.
