In a report on its web site dated April 2010, entitled "Meet The Patriots," the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) profiled "36 individuals at the heart of the resurgent [patriot] movement." (In reading the list, I counted only 35 "patriots" and 5 "enablers" for a total of 40. I'm not really sure how the SPLC came up with "36." Perhaps their ability to count is commensurate with their ability to appreciate patriotism and liberty.) The SPLC (founded by Morris Dees) sees itself as America's guardian against "right wing militias" and loves to label conservatives and libertarians that it doesn't like as "extremists." The SPLC is one of the most ultra-liberal organizations in the country and should be dismissed as a group of paranoid leftists, not worthy of thought or mention. Read the hit list at URL

Hey the Oyate that likes Glen Beck:

Visionary? Oh come on you, you can't put one over on another Oyate so easily. You have to accept that I am as sneaky as you are. OK so would you defend your position for a Randian perspective or a Rothbardian or a Locke-ian one or perhaps are you a student of Lysander Spooner? Which of the several "ists" are you speaking from?

And are you in the slightest put out by the fact that "nativist" suddenly means Judeo-Christian and not red people? Because if they are the natives, what does that make us? Relics? The "former natives"? Oh well, what's in a name anyway? I once decided, the moment I heard Prince gave up his name, I decided that I would be Prince. I figured if he wasn't using it anymore it wouldn't do any harm. Then I could be Prince and you could be Oyate and there wouldn't be any competition for the semantic real estate.

See there's the rub pal. If your game is to dilute or discredit the Oyate trip, how much credibility do you think we have around here? Are you thinking that discrediting Oyate is gonna have some kind of effect on the movement? I sincerely doubt it. The movement will get along just fine without Oyates around. In fact I know some people who will be deeply relieved just to have us not talk anymore.

On the flip side, alls fair in love and war so if you want to drag us down, let's go down in a huge, Titanic pile-up. It should be pretty amusing. I've been character-assasinated before and found it pretty amusing. I kind of got cut to the head of the class. I wasn't just COINTEL-PRO or an informant, I was a real live CIA agent.

And I just WISH. OMFG. I mean have you seen my teeth? Haven't been near a dentist in over 20 years and it's showing. Know one way you can tell a real live agent? Nice teeth. So at best I'm an under-paid informant because I can't even afford caps and crowns.

You know, the more I think about it, somebody else might just as well be the new Oyate. I've developed a pessimistic attitude. And every single good idea I've had in the past 2 years, one of you younger people is doing it even better. I have this distinct sense of passing on the torch. And I thought it would take us another 30 years to get to this point. I think I am too old and stupid to keep up with all this activity. Or maybe it's me doing my computational thing. Every couple of years I have to step back and just EVALUATE things. See there's different ways to be a lifelong activist. One way is the Ernie and Gary way of going full time, all the time and another is gathering resources and contributing and then stepping back to gather more resources. Like the tide. Nobody can stop it from coming in but sometimes it retreats. To come back again.

But heck, since we have two Oyates here, why not listen to the other one for a while?

OMG GUYS! You are whitnessing something rare here. You are seeing two Oyates. Two people posting with the name Oyate. It's kind of an inside joke because Oyate is a shared name, a shared space by all people. And I knew there were other Oyates sneaking around, confusing issues, whooping it up but it's just rare to find two of us on the same thread at the same time.

And I wonder what Oyate is up to now?

Hey Oyate, what are we up to today? How is your whole Oyate trip going? Hey Oyate, when you look in the mirror, do you see me or you? All the mirrors around here show me but then how do I know that this is not in fact what you look like and not me?

What we really need are some female Oyates so we all get major gender-identity confusion going. Heck let's all just be Oyate. Jump in, water's fine.

Wait: Glen Beck? I'm lodging a formal complaint with Heidi. The list was reading pretty good up to that point. I was like "hey this wouldn't make a bad speaker list for our next rally but having Glen Beck's name alongside this list of luminaries is just insulting.
