Badeagle.com Wracked by Internal Squabbles
And naturally he had to resort to racist stereotypes about Indians to explain it all away.
The fact that extremely few ACTUAL Native forums get torn apart by fighting never seems to occur to him.
"Too many people needed their heads off, and I wouldn't let it happen. Many people have better things to do than to allow the fights I have allowed here. They are often so useless, petty, childish, and they accomplish nothing but a negative image--which is the opposite of why I formed BadEagle.com in the first place: to create a great and noble image of Indian people. I should say, to provide an opportunity for us to show our best side, our best nature.
In a way, we have. At least, we have shown what we value: war.
This is plains Indian.
I only hope we can find the right enemies. Instead of warring against ourselves, we should war against that!"
Two of his oldest allies and longtime moderators have left his forum. Yeagley is refusing to say why, but from his comments it seems his bigotry got to be too much even for them.
Betty Ann Gross was one of the extremely few supporters Yeagley had that was actually Native. Previous readers of this archive will remember that Gross was drawn to Yeagley by their mutual hatred and fear of Blacks. One of her more memorable claims was that Jesus and the Statue of Liberty were both blue eyed blondes that Indians should worship.
One the plus side, Gross did stand up against John Martin/Tallsoldier77 and his death threats and bullying, and did point out that Yeagley had a double standard with his habit of banning Indians more than whites.
It seems, though, that her open hatred of Jews was too much even for Yeagley, who prefers to pose as a friend of Jews even while spouting stereotypes about them.
"Beakerkin: I consider Betty Ann to be a friend but she always tosses in lines about Jews every time she leaves."
Mac or Macoineach is a self described Scottish nationalist and one who stood strongest against the many white supremaicists from National Alliance and Stormfront that Yeagley welcomed to his forum. He has left too, with Yeagley cracking more stereotypes about "fighting Scots."
It seems that in order to maintain control, Yeagley has instituted some of the most draconian control measures seen anywhere on the net.
"For new people who wish to register on the BadEagle forums, it is hereby ordered (as it has be requested in the past) that you write BadEagle.com first, declaring who you are, with basic information. More importantly, your intent.
There is far to much spam, false registration, and manipulating trolls and troublemakers."
Michelle Shining Elk had this comment about the new policy's real intent:
"The little worthless blogger now dictates that you write him, personally, first before you can become a registered member.
It's simply another way he keeps his fantasy world alive. First it was by censoring, then by deleting, then by banning, and now you have to "get" his approval before you can even have a voice in his little fantasy world.
He says anyone one can comment on his blogs and forums, but that's just another big fat lie and a joke -- the only way that's going to happen is if you are willing to stroke his little ego the right way and say the right things. And the right things always boil down to agreeing and supporting his demented thoughts and opinions and slamming other people and opinions. And be warned, if you do "pass go" and become registered, you cannot slam or oppose him because that's when he censors, deletes and bans -- he is desperately fearful of being "exposed" himself and takes very seriously "deleting" all oppositions and negatively that goes against him, i.e. the rebuttals, arguments and statements that are made to him, against him and about him. He can't handle it and hides behind his delete button. He runs like a scared little girl - it's such a farce.
It's all just more narcissistic behavior from the King of Narcissism."
