Adelstein: pay no attention to the racists behind the curtain

You have crossed over into the Twilight Zone.

It came as such a shock that State Senator Stan Adelstein appeared on hate monger Gordon Howie's fake teevee show in 2012 it compelled some further study.

Richard Boyden's birthday is on the same day as political prisoner, Leonard Peltier. He links early Jewish settlement in western South Dakota to the subjugation of American Indians at the time of statehood and the massacre at Wounded Knee.
And on Indian Reservations here in South Dakota, H. R. Block (Bloch), a Jewish owned tax service, is engaged in racist "predatory lending" and making hundreds of thousands of dollars off of unsuspecting Indians by offering "quick high interest loans" in the name of "getting your refund sooner". Block was sued for doing the same among poor Blacks but has a "green light" from the government to exploit American Indians. The highest prices for food and groceries are found in two Jewish owned stores on the Pine Ridge and Rosebud reservations…20-30 % higher as compared to off reservation stores. Single Indian mothers needing pampers and wipes for their babies have to pay $2 to $4 more per package. [Boyden]
Jack Abramoff is linked to the bilking of tribal casinos.

Sen. Adelstein's ancestors owned a store in Kadoka, adjacent to the Pine Ridge Reservation: he is vested in many mining interests from gold to gravel on disputed treaty lands.

The cop who managed 'a bunch of racists' was sworn in as Rapid City's mayor.
In the end, our new mayor, Steve Allender, received 8,538 votes, or 54 percent of the vote, while his opponent, former Mayor Sam Kooiker, received 7,312, or 46 percent. More interesting is that without the votes from Kooiker’s home precinct and those precincts in Ward 1 susceptible to the dishonest suggestion of racism, Allender received 59 percent of the vote — 7,163 votes to 5,078 for Kooiker. The former mayor’s continued false attacks on Councilmember Charity Doyle are not only dishonest but deliberately malicious. No one in Rapid City believes that the choice of the chief of police had the vaguest element of racism. The support by nearly 60 percent of Rapid City's population bodes well for a more productive, less confrontational and economical growth-oriented future for our town. [LTE, Stan Adelstein]
Uh, Stan?
“I would be eating lunch and Steve would say, ‘What’s on the menu today, a bowl of guts?’ Or if I was eating a sandwich he would say, ‘What you eating, a slab of lab?’ You know Labrador, a dog,” he said. “Then it rubbed off on the secretaries. I was right out in the squad room and I’d be sitting there eating a sandwich and the secretaries would say, ‘What you having today Glen, a slab of lab?’”
Read that here.

Adelstein's fellow Jewish-American, SDGOP Chair Dan Lederman is a bail bondsman allied with catholics in a state where The New Jim Crow has been applied to American Indians and disproportionate mass incarceration rates.

Stupid state.
