Editorial by Richard L. Thornton, Architect & City Planner
Edna Dixon’s report on the current situation of Brother Ghost Dancer clearly portrayed a great evil, which had taken over our nation. Decent, compassionate people have been pushed aside, while those with demonic values have taken control of many aspects of our society in the United States. Although clearly no threat to our society today, Brother Ghost Dancer was first demonized by a politically ambitious district attorney then dehumanized to the point that he could be treated like an animal with no one feeling any pangs of guilt.
As I have told Edna and Brother Ghost Dancer before, I also could have easily been trapped into the situation that he is in now . . . had not I been given exceptional asymmetrical warfare training by two Naval officers, who had each won the Congressional Medal of Honor . . . exceptional training in evasion and reconnaissance by FBI Special agents . . . and been given more intelligence than the average possum by my Creek ancestors . . . who were also known for their cunning. Well, there was also there was the lack of a criminal record, which would make it difficult for the demonization to hold water before a jury.
Though for the grace of God go I
The photo above is of my home ten years ago. The US Forest Service required me to move at least 10 miles every two weeks . . . no explanation why . . . so the scenery behind the tent and cooking shed changed regularly. Except during the winter, it really wasn’t such a bad life style for a guy with Native American heritage, except for the people I encountered day and at night. The sadistic bullies of our society perceived me as being weak and vulnerable and thus a fun thing to kick around . . . or rather to try to kick around. Those involved fully expected me to soon end up in a grave or at least in prison. There are demons within these people, which drive them to seek victims to destroy psychologically . . . if not physically.
This had gone on for years. You can read what happened up to 2011 in my 2012 book, Itsapa . . . the Itza Mayas in North America. You can get the PDF of the book for only $15 from my publisher’s website for me, Lulu Publishing – Richard Thornton.
The most recent attempt began in 2018. As I was moving here, deputies from Lumpkin, White and Habersham Counties, Georgia spread the lie that I was a male prostitute with a long criminal record of violence. I guess the violence thing came from the long Creek tradition of not allowing oneself to become a victim.
Then in August 2019 it was made to look like some hiker from White County had been murdered at one of the archaeological sites, we have studied. As far as I know, no body has ever been found. “Somebody” told a vigilante group, based at a large Southern Baptist church in Gainesville, GA that I had done it, but that I had “librul” political connections protecting me . . . as was the case for most perverts, they said. Next thing I knew, I had been demonized and dehumanized to the point that these good Southern Baptists were joking over their CB radios how they were going “stick me like a wild hog.”
My earlier training at the Georgia Tech NROTC and in Virginia prevented that from happening . . . or me being cornered where I had to stick them like hogs . . . however, as I said . . . for the Grace of God go I. Nevertheless, it was quite clear that demagogic politicians had brainwashed these idiots into thinking that they were super macho Rambos and their “enemies” were helpless, wussy perverts, who were too timid to defend themselves.
As described in my newest book, The Native American Encyclopedia of Georgia, there was a radical change in the relationships between the Creeks and British colonists just before the American Revolution. Illegal squatters, called “Crackers” by British governor Wright, were pouring over the colony’s borders and provoking violence on the frontier, by stealing livestock from Creek and Uchee farms or establishing farmsteads on Creek land.
Prior to then, the Creeks and Uchees had been treated as equals by the British government. Intermarriage between these peoples had been encouraged. A Mestizo society was evolving, which maintained the best qualities of both peoples.
The situation became much worse after the Revolution, when over 80,000 settlers moved into the new state in less than a decade, totally overwhelming the cultural influence of the original colonists. The Creeks were demonized and dehumanized. In the mindset of many Georgia “Crackers,” killing a Creek was no more significant than killing a deer. The stage was set for many years of bloody warfare. Bloody warfare would occur on an industrial scale in the Civil War, because far greater demonization and dehumanization was directed at African Americans.
It’s still going on today in the United States. Demagogic politicians and fake Christian pseudo-leaders are trying to make Americans hate each other in order to get one side’s vote. The answer to all this demonic madness are the words of Jesus Christ: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
