Happy New Fear!

Happy New Fear!


By Peter Molenaar Some definitions: 1.) A “proto-fascist” is one who sets the stage with scape-goating and the promotion of chauvinism. 2.) Fascism is the open faced terroristic dictatorship of the most reactionary, chauvinistic, imperialistic sector of the capitalist ruling class. 3.)

Ilhan and Neegonnweedun

By Peter Molenaar Was it fifteen years ago that a Somali man named Jaylani suffered a psychotic breakdown at the Chicago Crossing parking lot off Franklin Avenue? He would be executed by the police before that day was done.  Had he been white, people believed another outcome would have occurred. So then, Neegonnwayweedun – The Thunder before [...]

Yes, Hillary, And Then…?

Our Hillary has accused the Donald of “taking hate mainstream.” Oh, quite right.  It seems the little boy-man suffers all the symptoms of affluenza, the nauseating narcissism of every known chauvinism.  Sadly, a serious mass seeks salvation in worship of the false idol. However, the Great Barrier Reef of Australia, 25 million years old, is [...]

The snake and our nurses

By Peter Molenaar Not so long ago, the ancient ‘black snake’ prophecy was linked to the construction of railways. However, recent ceremonies have sifted through the prophecies to reveal that the snake goes underground. In these modern times, millions of settler descendants are coming to know the truth as well.

My Talk With June Bug Regarding Non-Violence

By Peter Molenaar Hah!  June Bug, you have come to rest your long forelegs across a rumple of my jeans…evidently not to bite me.  Alright then, it seems we shall enter a state of mutual contemplation.  Are you aware of the violence in this world? Note: “The LGBT community has stood side by side with the American-Muslim community during [...]

Wild rice

BY PETER MOLENAAR “Ricey Wild” is the pen name attached to “It Ain’t Easy Being Indian.”  Ricey is a window to the world, as seen from the Fond du Lac reservation.  Her work is published in THE CIRCLE and as such, is part of the fabric of our community. Only occasionally has Ricey vented resentment upon the surrounding White world.  [...]

Living With Cave Bear

By Peter Molenaar Ursus spelaens (Cave Bear) emerged one million years ago, coexisted with Homo neanderthalenis for 300,000 years, then went extinct in the period of Homo sapien ascendency. Cave Bear was a big vegetarian. In those Ice Age winters, he and his kind occupied in masse the great caves of Europe. There, they would hibernate. Who doubts [...]
