I first heard about Kevin Annett when he was coming to Occupy Vancouver. There was a debate going on already, about someone’s proposal to ‘occupy the churches’ in the name of justice for Canadian indigenous residential schools. The plan was to invade and occupy a Catholic and a United church in downtown Vancouver.
This immediately seemed like a bad idea to me. Not only because of the PR impact on Occupy Vancouver, but also for the Indigenous community who were pushing for us to join them. The fact is that the vast majority of British Colombians abhor this part of our country’s history- it would be hard to find someone who would say otherwise. I’d guess that most of the clergy agree- or, at least, they would have to present themselves as believing it was an atrocity. Even Canadians who are unhappy with the indigenous community still carry a certain amount of post-colonial doubt…
When I presented this case there were many people who agreed, but a few people resisted quite strongly. This was another one of those puzzling cases where the counter-argument was completely void of logic- consequently, as usual in such situations, the debate became emotional for some. Regardless, in the end, we agreed that Annett was pushing things too far by invading churches…
When I arrived here I was totally surprised to hear that Annett had also been to Occupy Toronto- and blown away by the story behind it. Apparently, people at OT had paid $500 to rent ground sonar equipment for Mr Annett to search for a mass grave at the Six Nations reserve! Say what?
There is so much wrong with this video that I don’t even know where to start. First, notice how Dave Vasey appears to be organizing the affair (one of his rare appearances at a GA at city hall.) I wrote about Dave in my last article and how he has been involved in the organizing at the Six Nations where he and Taylor Chelsea (Pottymouth) taught people about how Black Bloc tactics are exercised.
More important, look at how much of a schmuck Kevin Annett is the way he reaches into his pocket and starts to wave around the ‘bones of children’ in front of the crowd! If these actually were the bones of children, what sort of animal would act this way with them? This man is sick.
And, if you have any doubt left of whether Annett is a schmuck or not, have a look at the collection of letters that have been put together by the people who defrocked him at the United Church. Hell, even Amnesty International says he is a liar!
Also notice in the video that Annett claims that the bones “have been verified by an archaeologist to be the bones of young children.” This is interesting because Kevin has changed his story on if the bones are real or not several times. This video was from last year- yet, earlier this year he stated that the bones weren’t tested but had been submitted to a leading American forensic specialist in late December. I called a forensics lab in the US and they confirmed to me that it takes 7 days to do a DNA test- when I approached people from the Six-Nations reserve they told me they were still waiting for results at the end of February…
The fact is that Annett has told six different stories about the bones. So, I decided to ask him myself a few days ago, here’s his response:
So, asking a question is slinging innuendo, is it? It is if you are talking to a madman. I’ll be writing a lot more about the cult of Kevin Annett in the next few days- quite a fascinating story. Especially how it appears the story of the bones is being used to promote an indigenous uprising for June 21st. I’ve been warned they plan to be armed, multiple Oka’s across the country. Coming to a town near you…
