David Yeagley, Comanche Conservative

, ,

David Yeagley, 1951-2014

Vanishing American, in the course of discussing the eagerness of so-many today to utilize the moral jiu-jitsu of victimhood to gain status and power, offers up a very interesting counter-example, whom I intend to learn more about.

The late Comanche patriot David Yeagley, who was an ethnopatriot towards his Comanche tribe, also acknowledged that their White foes won honorably. The two sides fought, and Whites prevailed. He was an exception, probably one of a kind, to take this attitude. It’s so much more profitable to whine about how one’s ancestors were wronged and oppressed by evil Whitey than to acknowledge that they simply were outmatched. It saves ‘face’, I suppose, to claim that the other side ‘cheated’ or ‘stole’ or ‘oppressed’ than to say that one’s side lost in a fair fight. There is always a winner and a loser. But the left has subverted this; it has almost made winning a mark of disgrace and infamy.

This is where the ‘narrative’ becomes unhealthy: this exaltation of weakness and ‘victimhood.’ It encourages people to don the ‘victim’ mantle to manipulate and gain power by insidious and dishonest means. It promotes deception and dishonesty. It is not a healthy thing.

I was very sad when he died. I read his blog regularly and found his posts to be very interesting and thought provoking. I wonder what he would have written about the insanity of the past year…

I really miss his insight.


There is so much more that could be done to help the Indians. Almost all of their problems are the result of basically being wards of the state. They deserve freedom and an opportunity to succeed. End the “reservation” system. Put them and thier property under the local state and federal system as appropriate. Change the current system to a corporation where each member of the tribe becomes an owner of their land and a share holder in their tribal lands. Allow them to sell and buy and to move or stay. Let them live under the same rule of law (with all it’s faults and advantages) that the rest of Americans do. End the special treatment most of which serves to harm them.
