Tribal tea partiers hold rally

Karmelita Plains Bull Martin organized the first Tea Party protest by Crow tribal members in Hardin on Monday, February 15, 2010. Tea Party members from Billings, Great Falls, Townsend, Bozeman, Big Timber and Miles City drove to Hardin to show support for the newest Tea Party chapter near the Crow Indian Reservation.


Tea Party group starts up on Crow reservation

The Crow Nation 1825 Peace Treaty Allotee Land Commission joins the Tea Party movement in hopes to end government control on the Crow reservation.


HARDIN — Calling for new tribal leadership and a break from the federal government, founders of the first Crow Indian Tea Party movement rallied Monday in Hardin.

Leading the new Crow Nation Tea Party was Adrian Bird Sr., a former tribal chairman candidate who recently filed a civil complaint against the Crow executive branch alleging malfeasance for mismanaging tribal funds.

Bird, his wife, Lavanna, and fellow Tea Party founder Karmelita Plains Bull Martin are seeking to impeach the tribe’s four executives and take the Indian government in a different direction.

“We want them out of there because they are mismanaging tribal funds,” Bird said. “We need to get the people together.”

The Birds and Plains Bull Martin accuse the administration of mismanaging “tribal funds regarding education, employment, housing, casino finances,” and they accuse the tribal leadership of “total disregard of our laws and policies as the Crow Nation.”

Bird said the tribe would be better off if it developed the natural resources on the reservation, lived by tribal laws and declined federal government assistance.

Chairman Cedric Black Eagle, who could not be reached for comment at his office Monday, must respond to the civil complaint this week. He earlier said he was consulting with an attorney on how to proceed.

Plains Bull Martin said the new Tea Party group also objects to the management of the Indian Health Services, which guarantees coverage only to Indians living on the Crow Reservation and doesn’t offer preventative care.
“It’s a crisis facility. There’s no intensive or preventative health care,” Plains Bull Martin said.

Former IHS pediatrician Dr. Michael Garver backed Plains Bull Martin’s concerns, calling IHS “probably a way of not feeling guilt ridden for putting them on a reservation” for the federal government.

Garver, who now practices in Great Falls, said American Indians would be better served if they were placed on Medicaid, which would provide them with better coverage no matter where they lived.

By tying health care to the reservation, the government has put American Indians in the position of choosing poor housing and economic conditions in order to receive health care, critics say.

Plains Bull Martin and others also accused the Crow Nation of not using the Indian Child Welfare Act to give native families first preference for Indian foster children and to notify immediate family members of where child relatives were being placed within the foster system.



“It’s human trafficking, and Crow Nation kids are not for sale,” Plains Bull Martin said. “The tribe is not using the Indian Child Welfare Act.”

Other Tea Party members from across the state joined the Crow Nation Tea Party in demonstrating at Hardin’s only downtown stoplight. The groups gathered at every corner of the intersection with placards denouncing health care reform, climate change legislation and excessive federal government.
They elicited honks from passersby during the noon rally.
“We just wanted to be supportive of these people,” said Ken Champion of Bozeman. “Anybody who stands for freedom and liberty and opposed to unrestricted government spending, we want to support.”

It says "Karmelita Plains Bull Martin organized the first Tea Party protest by Crow tribal members in Hardin on Monday, February 15, 2010."

You *may* have to move your head from a certain orafice to realize that.

Does the Tea Party think they are the first to protest the government? So all the previous protest didn't matter because they weren't linked with ultra-right anti-intellectual hate?

Before the tea parties, only no-real Americans and traitors protested.

Whenever I see the Tea Party people I try to think of what Noam Chomsky said:

If you can't copy and paste an article with a bunch of underlines, you really aren't making an argument, are you?

well, gee, seems like the CPAC thing-y do over at the Omni in Woodley Park is going really well:

YouTube - Your Homophobic CPAC Moment, Featuring Ryan Sorba


good for the crowd, though. looks like the kids -- even the far right kids attending the conference -- know better.

also interesting to note that Ron Paul won the straw pool, over Romney. and Palin.

granted, the CPAC is an expression of Id, ideology, and base anger, rather than a flexing of actual political muscle, but one has to wonder what's going on.

Freedom of opinion, Irvine. Freedom of opinion, freedom of opinion.

Solid defense by the host lady.

So they're against jobs?

Which Enraged Scott Brown Facebook Fan Comment Is Your Favorite? - scott brown - Gawker

Disrespecting teabaggers and voting for jobs for the people of your home state will not be tolerated, damn it. And you're Facebook page (and your daughter's) will suffer the consequences.

I like Ron Paul. He seems like he's got his head on straight and actually gives a shit. I would say that if Obama can't get some shit done in the next couple of years, Paul would be a good guy to run against him as a lot of moderates / independents would probably go for him. That being said, and politics being what it is today, the Reps will probably throw that batshit insane, egomaniac Sarah Palin at him, in which case, they will lose. Because she's a moron. Then again, so was W. Maybe they'll go with Ryan Sorbal. He seems solid.

What has this country come to?

Oh my God. What a complete and total asshole.

And a moron to boot.

Is he serious or just cashing in? Although, if he's just cashing in, that's even worse.

Now I see why people really think Nazis and Commies are the same thing. Because this dumbshit said they were.

Words just cannot express my contempt for this fuck and the idiots who think he's right.
