Note, 12/26/2014: Doreen Agostino, in a comment below, has alerted us to a wonderful post about this same subject that widens the perspective even further to point out that Annett, disgraced or not, fraud or not, DID alert us to the horrors endured by Native children.
I used to post the remarkable doings of Kevin Annett, who, seemingly singlehandedly, and with vast skill and determination, was bringing all the bad guys who rape and murder Canadian First Nation and other poor children to justice, including the Queen of England, the Pope, various powers in Canada, England, etc. I considered him an incredible example of a Lone Wolf or Robin Hood that somehow, by his unflinchable courage, was making the world right again.
But then, sometime in April 2014, I started to wonder. Hmmm. . . what if Annett really is just a lone wolf, a one-man band? What if all the people he talks about — his jurors, attorneys, the “World Court” ITCCS he(?) established to bring to trial all these nefarious figures — what if none of it is real, what if it’s all a figment of one small man’s obviously florid imagination?
For me, the final straw was his claim that what he was doing was actually responsible for “bringing down” Pope Benedict Ratzinger . “Oh sure,” I remember thinking to myself sarcastically. What you’re doing, Kevin, is having that kind of massive effect.
I stopped posting anything by Kevin Annett.
Also, somewhere in there I got wind of Native people who warned about Kevin Annett, saying he didn’t serve their interests. Which solidified my suspicions. But then, at some point I ran into a person from the northwest U.S,. a Native American familiar with both Kevin Annett and the Canadian genocide at residential schools. I asked her what she thought of the broohaha that surrounds Annett in the Native community. Well, she commented, there’s a lot of dissension among Native people, so who knows who to trust there, either?
Even so, something about Annett just didn’t click for me. I still suspected that was making it all up.
I was surprised that Alfred Webre kept the faith as long as he did, but now he too, has jumped ship. Since December 8th, when he last served as Kevin’s mouthpiece, Webre has completely reversed course as to who this character really is. I first got wind of this sea-change by reading a letter that Webre wrote to someone supposedly associated with Kevin Annett, and the response was not what he expected. I can no longer find that letter. Sorry! However, I did find Webre’s “protective order” in response to a threat then issued by Annett. Then, last night, I came upon a two-hour interview Webre conducted with two people who supposedly served as “jurors” during Annett’s trials. I listened to the first 30 minutes.
ITCCS Juror: There was no ITCCS trial of UK Queen and Pope Ratzinger. Trial a Kevin Annett Fabrication.
Then, this morning, I see where Webre has put up a video with transcript on his website detailing how he met Annett, and how their relationship evolved — and came crashing down.
Also this morning, there is a response from Annett at the ITCCS.org website.
Interesting, how We the People can be duped by apparently shyster, sociopathic — and in this case very creative! — narcissistic Lone Wolves who may or may not be double agents working for the dark side, counting on our gullible innocence to keep on going, and meanwhile, by design, discrediting every actual injustice that they touch. Which reminds me of a recent, deeply analytic piece that makes a lot of sense in this context:
Meanwhile, as Webre notes, we need to find a way to make sure that what has been done to Canadian First Nation people is exposed and the perpetrators brought to justice.
