Update: Don Stevens, chief of the Nulhegan Abenaki Tribe has gone on the record saying that the protester’s actions were ‘disgusting’, that they didn’t approve it, and they don’t believe the flags were on a grave site- but, if it were, they would be ‘proud’ to have the flags there. Here’s the story.
For the past ten years students at Vermont’s Middlebury College have setup a simple memorial for victims of 9/11. Members of the College Democrats & Republicans lay out 2,977 American flags- one for each person who was killed. Despite their many political differences, people from both groups (and society in general) agree it was tragic so many people were killed.
It takes a special type of sleaze bag to desecrate a memorial for the dead. In this case it took five- one student, and four people from outside. They came, armed with garbage bags, removed each flag and threw them in the trash. The apparent leader of this incident comes from Peterborough, Ontario- her name is Amanda Lickers, and she’s no stranger to sleazy protests.
The Middlebury student was the aptly named Anna Shireman-Grabowski. She’s a member of the anarchist friendly environmentalist group called Rising Tide (associated with many of the people who have the Love Is The Movement tattoo). Here’s how the big Grabowski explained her involvement in this mess:
“Today I chose to act in solidarity with my friend, an Indigenous woman and a citizen of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy who was appalled to see the burial grounds of another Indigenous nation desecrated by piercing the ground that their remains lay beneath”
But, as what we often see with anarchist/environmentalist claims of indigenous graves, her’s appears to have no foundation in truth. Middlebury has stated that there’s never been a claim that this land was a burial site. A representative of the Abenaki nation has confirmed this. It appears that the flag Grabowskies have simply made this up.
It’s not surprising that Amanda Lickers would be involved with this mess- she hangs out with a fairly questionable crowd. She was a featured speaker when Zach Ruiter invaded West Toronto with his gang of idiot protesters protesting the GE-Hitachi nuclear fuel plant, and is often seen at Ruiter’s events. Lickers was also part of the crowd who tried to block access to an auditorium at the University of Toronto anti-patriarch hate party last November.
Like many misguided ‘activists’, Lickers comes across like a desperate attention seeker. The kind of person who sees a memorial to the dead and envisions it as an opportunity to get her name in the news. It worked too, people across the US are talking about her ignorant prank.
She, herself, was very proud of what she did:
Licker’s statement shows just how seriously confused she is. Responding to people who have criticised her for desecrating a memorial for the dead, she calls them “genocide, eugenic, and imperialist supporters!!”. Perhaps some are, but the majority of people who are offended only believe that it’s tasteless to deface a memorial for the dead. That’s common-sense to most, but Lickers is so lost in the world of the socialist obedience cult that she can’t see the reality of the situation.
Or, perhaps she does. Either way, it’s piggish behaviour…
The best part about it all is that the Abernaki confirmed that it is not a known burial mound.
Yeah, it’s kind of reminiscent of the ‘burial mounds’ at High Park- dontya think?
who is footing the bill for the antics of this closed minded porker?
I didn’t know she was a cop! ;)
Lickers(what a handle,just how many lesbian jokes do you think she’s heard with that moniker?),and others like her,can walk around acting obnoxious with a self-righteous attitude and making false claims to justify her disgusting behavior but eventually she’ll end up at the wrong place at the wrong time and have the living shit kicked out of her grotesque body.
Her parents must be sooooooo proud!
Jeez Greg you really can find these winners.
It’s people like her that show the rest of the world just how screwed up her and her fellow travelers are. I hope she continues to do what she’s doing. It sheds a light on their true agenda.
Gaylord,I truly think the only agenda people like her have is to make a spectacle of themselves,they weren’t the popular students in high school,they’re lazy and they lack any motivation to make something of themselves and they simply crave attention.By behaving in such an egregious manner,they get attention and they are accepted by others of equal intellect and ambition and believe the state,meaning you and I,owe them something because of their low self-esteem.They believe they’ve been so hard done by that they deserve to be financially supported by us.
Peterborough Assfat Desecrates Vermont 9/11 Memorial (feat. A man da Lick her) – fixed
Big Steaming Turd
This stupid fat loser doesn’t deserve the attention (should read: disgust) for her appalling act of vandalism. It’s not just refreshing but vindicating to hear that true aboriginals think she and her cohorts are liars and sleaze for doing this.
How does this unfeeling blob go through life believing the crap that she does and then being a thoughtless @$$hole at that? Just how?
This explains a lot about politics
As busy as Amanda is, I think she gets a 1/2 way living wage from a leftists group that gets its’ money from government grants or a foundation taken over by leftists
Wow, that’s very interesting- I’ll have to dig further into it. Thanks!
I am wondering if she paid her own way to go to Vermont or as is the case with most of these anarchists, it is being funded by someone else, either a group or out of student levies.
Either way, I don’t think they will allow her over the border again.
More white people speaking for natives. Trying to tell native people what their views should be. This has been going on for centuries.
Exactly. This is what has fired up my anger over white people ‘speaking’ for their native brothers. We white people have to step back, not push ourselves forward.
Another example of a poorly dressed, overly pierced, tattooed, under/unemployed 20 plus something with too much time on her hands and too much attitude sleeping in every morning and spending the rest of the day finding ways to annoy more productive folks in society with bad behaviour.
Why would she do anything so callous and stupid? I’m assuming she probably has a lot of misplaced white guilt.
I still don’t understand what would compel someone to do something like this, even if you did honestly believe that the area was possibly a burial ground wouldn’t you want to be sure before you make an ass out of yourself? There are plenty of non-invasive ways of checking whether there are remains buried there, wouldn’t you want to be sure first?
They’re attentions seekers- this act got them lots of it. I’m guessing their parents didn’t spend enough time with them as kids…
