Racist Radio

As Dena Jensen reports, William Honea, Skagit County senior deputy prosecuting attorney –in justifying the CAPR anti-Indian workshop in Sedro-Wooley on May 20–falsely attributed an incendiary quote to Swinomish tribal chairman Brian Cladoosby. Given that Mr. Honea–like CERA celebrity Elaine Willman–was given a platform on KGMI radio to promote racist resentment, it is perhaps a good time for human rights activists and moral authorities to pursue having Saturday Morning Live removed from its programming. After four years of hosting anti-Indian racists on her show, it’s time for KGMI to pull the plug on Tea Party leader Kris Halterman.

Racist Revival

As reported at Noisy Waters Northwest, CERA–the “Ku Klux Klan of Indian country”–made an appearance in Skagit County yesterday, four years after the CERA anti-Indian conference in Whatcom County. The 2013 CERA gathering targeted Lummi Nation, while the 2017 CAPR workshop targeted Swinomish Tribal Community.

The Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians–Lummi and Swinomish included–oppose fossil fuel export on the Salish Sea, providing an opportunity for promoters of interracial discord to cash in on the carbon corridor conflict.
