American Newspapers that Praised Hitler (Daily Beast) - The Constantine Report Aboriginal News Group Newswire

American Newspapers that Praised Hitler (Daily Beast) - The Constantine Report: Why did many mainstream American newspapers portray the Hitler regime positively, especially in its early months? How could they publish warm human-interest stories about a brutal dictator? Why did they excuse or rationalize Nazi anti-Semitism? These are questions that should haunt the conscience of U.S. journalism to this day.

Some of the U.S. press coverage of Hitler’s first weeks in power was rooted in unfamiliarity with the man and his movement. The Nazis had risen from barely 18 percent of the national vote in mid-1930 to become Germany’s largest party only two years later, and gained power just months after that. Knowing little about Hitler and Nazism, many American editors and reporters assumed, based on previous experience, that a radical candidate would show some restraint once in office.

An editorial in the Philadelphia Evening Bulletin on Jan. 30, 1933, asserted that “there have been indications of moderation” on Hitler’s part. The editors of The Cleveland Press, on Jan. 31, claimed the “appointment of Hitler as German chancellor may not be such a threat to world peace as it appears at first blush.” Frederick Birchall, Berlin bureau chief for The New York Times, found “a new moderation” in the political atmosphere following Hitler’s rise to power.

QLD police respond violently to Indigenous woman - Amnesty International Australia



Dear Minister,

I am extremely concerned about an incident depicted in video footage posted on Facebook on 17 January 2016 that shows a Queensland Police Officer repeatedly and forcefully pushing an Aboriginal woman.

The footage raises serious questions about the conduct of the police officers involved.

I call on you to immediately launch a full, public and independent investigation into the incident depicted in the video and any associated arrests, including the conduct of officers involved.

Police officers must uphold the human rights of all people, without discrimination

Sincerely,

2016 Gerald and Maas Suppressed News: January 16, 2016 - #Canada Aboriginal News Group Newswire

2016 Gerald and Maas Suppressed News






      Canada: in August 2015 the CBC reported the results of a study from Statistics Canada
showing risk of avoidable death for First Nations peoples twice that
(in some cases five times that) of non-natives. On January 15th, 2016,
it featured a plea by the Ontario First Nations Regional Chief, Isadore
Day, that Canadians deal with the fact of inadequate health care for
aboriginal peoples. The CBC notes that according to the Ministry
of Health TB rates are five times the general population for First
Nations people, and fifty times the general population for the Inuit. If
verifiable these disastrous figures would show something of an
improvement. In 2009 Night's Lantern reported UNICEF's
findings that noted the tuberculosis rate among Canadian aboriginal
people was 90 times the national average for the years 2004 to 2006. In 2013 Night's Lantern
noted news reports of the rate of Inuit tuberculosis as 186 times that
of native born non-aboriginals. Sources of reliable information
concerning damages to Canadian First Nations were intentionally removed
by the Harper government in 2012 when the Conservative government
de-funded the National Aboriginal Health Organization (NAHO).
Studies linking TB rates to Canada's poverty levels are also not easily
available. Lack of transparency raises issues of the government's
enduring intentions. Historically both disease and lack of adequate
health care have been used as a weapon. To my unde...

Gustafsen Lake warrior granted political asylum in US wants return home to Canada - APTN National NewsAPTN National News Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Gustafsen Lake warrior granted political asylum in US wants return home to Canada - APTN National NewsAPTN National News: The U.S. Federal Court for the District of Oregon denied Canada’s extradition request for Pitawanakwat in November 2000 on grounds his actions in B.C. were “of a political character” and qualified for an exemption under the extradition treaty between Canada and the U.S.

“I would like to go back home to live and come and go throughout Canada and come and go throughout the U.S. without this harassment,” said Pitawanakwat, who is originally from Wikwemikong on Manitoulin Island in Ontario.


He said there is still an active warrant out for his arrest in Canada.

Pitawanakwat was convicted by a B.C. court in 1998 of mischief and possession of a weapon for a purpose dangerous to the public peace in connection to his involvement in the summer standoff which saw more gunfire exchanged between warriors and police than during the 1990 Oka Crisis.

Click on Wales - Why Corbyn’s troubles could boost Welsh nationalism Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Click on Wales � Blog Archive � Why Corbyn’s troubles could boost Welsh nationalism: Even though his seminal 1983 book Imagined Communities does not deal specifically with Wales, he does contrast the lack of an independence movement in Scotland with other parts of the British Empire.

One of the main reasons he suggests is that the middle-class in Scotland had access to power at the heart of the British Empire in London, while for the natives of other countries such as the United States, India and Australia, the “the looping upward path” was closed. (Anderson, 1991, pp. 90-3)

The alternative, when power at the centre of the Empire is not on offer, is to win independence in order to govern yourselves at home.

At this point we fast-forward to Philip Roeder’s pioneering study on nationalism, Where Nation States Come From, published in 2008.

According to his thesis – although, again, the book makes little mention of Wales specifically – our country since 1999 has been what he would call a ‘segment state’.

That is, a state with its own institutions which exists within another nation-state.

Roader turns our understanding of nationalism on its head. Rather than an ethnic people demanding the creation of political institutions that identify with their ethic culture, he suggests that it is institutions that promote nationalism in order to expand their own influence.
