History Channel Star Appeared in Racist Yearbook Photo!


The Joseph Goebbels Society, a national watchdog committee, whose mission is to protect Official American History from assaults by freethinkers and nerds, issued a press release today, which accused the editor of the People of One Fire Website, Bubba Mountainlion, of appearing in a racist costume on a prominent page of the 1972 Georgia Tech “Blueprint” yearbook.  The young man is clearly disguised as an American Indian guerilla from southern Mexico in the Pro-Democracy Zapatista Movement.  Meanwhile, most of his friends in the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity were appropriately attired as future loyal, but miserable, slaves of corporate Amerika. 

Zelda Rittenaur, the organization’s spokesperson, stated that this damning photo was an insult to indigenous peoples everywhere, because it suggests that there is a connection between southern Mexico and the Southeastern United States.  She has been assured by several respected members of the Georgia Council of Professional Archaeologists that they they knew for a fact that this was a ludicrous idea, fomented by pseudo-archaeologists.   The group’s president,  Elmer McGillicuddy, stated that it would have taken the imposter forty years . . . to December 21, 2012 . . . to prove such a ridiculous belief.  He added, “If it was true, we would have to re-write most of our books and archaeological books.”

Heidrich Steinbalder, President of the Joseph Goebbels Society,  contacted the Volkspolizei-Bereitschaften to see if there was any possibility of Bubba Mountainlion being charged with a crime for the racist photo.  It was the honored role of the Volkspolizei-Bereitschaften to first help create a one party dictatorship in the Southeastern United States and then to protect it.    Lt.  Walter Schmidthitten told him that Mountainlion had a long criminal record reaching back to 1970, when he led a gang of Pro-Democracy thugs in the brazen kidnapping of Georgia Governor Lester Maddox.  Steinbalder quoted Schmidthitten that “Mountainlion grabbed Governor Maddox, who was a good, Christian white supremacist, right out of his office in the State Capitol and then got away in an old Model A Ford.  A female accomplice, disguised as a pussy cat, distracted Governor Maddox’s security detail long enough for the brigands to escape to the safety of the Georgia Tech campus.  Since 1996, we have investigated Mountainlion for every crime on our list . . . from avarice to xenophobia . . . but he thinks different than we’uns do.  One thing that we can’t understand is how he knew about the Zapatistas in 1972.  No one else knew anything about them until they took control of part of southern Mexico.  Their territory is the only safe place in Mexico for tourists now, so the government in Mexico City is pretending that they don’t exist.  They don’t have to hire law enforcement in the Zapatista Zone.  What if the concept of a crime-free community reached the United States?  We would be out of work!  It’s a frustrating situation.

PS:  Yes, I am having fun, going through these boxes of old color slides and photos.  As 2019 unrolls, you will be amazed at my photos of Chaco Canyon,  the Pacific Northwest and Mexico!


The following two tabs change content below.
Richard Thornton is a professional architect, city planner, author and museum exhibit designer-builder. He is today considered one of the nation’s leading experts on the Southeastern Indians. However, that was not always the case. While at Georgia Tech Richard was the first winner of the Barrett Fellowship, which enabled him to study Mesoamerican architecture and culture in Mexico under the auspices of the Institutio Nacional de Antropoligia e Historia. Dr. Roman Piňa-Chan, the famous archaeologist and director of the Museo Nacional de Antropologia, was his fellowship coordinator. For decades afterward, he lectured at universities and professional societies around the Southeast on Mesoamerican architecture, while knowing very little about his own Creek heritage. Then he was hired to carry out projects for the Muscogee-Creek Nation in Oklahoma. The rest is history. Richard is the Tribal Historic Preservation Officer for the KVWETV (Coweta) Creek Tribe and a member of the Perdido Bay Creek Tribe. In 2009 he was the architect for Oklahoma’s Trail of Tears Memorial at Council Oak Park in Tulsa. He is the president of the Apalache Foundation, which is sponsoring research into the advanced indigenous societies of the Lower Southeast.


    • Actually, Jim, you live in a different world. The unmarked GBI pickup, whose driver was monitoring my phone and internet from a neighbor’s house, immediately closed up shop and drove away, after I posted this bit of satire. He got the message. My understanding is that their excuse this time was to monitor my activities as a possible “terrorist” at the Superbowl, 85 miles away. These people in the occult and the “Brotherhood of Patriots” superficially behave as arrogant bullies, but live in fear of people finding out, who and what they really are. In 1998, I personally observed two GBI agents threatening the Mayor of Adairsville, GA if he didn’t switch from the Democratic to Republican Party. They had photoshoped photos, which they claimed would be sent to the TV news teams, if he didn’t change parties. They thought that I was a municipal employee in an adjacent room. Beginning in the fall of 2000 Georgia law enforcement began threatening my architecture clients and women I were about to go on dates with. I have had virtually no professional work in Georgia since 2006 as a result of this type of illegal activity, even though at the same time I was getting national design awards and I was, in each county I lived in, the only Registered Architect and not a member of any political party. Just yesterday, a neighbor in her late 70s mentioned to me that her friends, who voted for Trump, really regretted it now. She then . . . begged me not to tell anyone that she said that. “They” might do something to me. I asked her, “Who is they?” She had a frightened look in her eyes and said only, “You won’t believe what happened to people around here, who put up Clinton signs or this past year, put up Democratic signs in their yard for the governor’s race. ” Actually, in this particular community, the majority of voters are either Democrats or Independents. I can’t imagine what it is like now in areas, where white non-Republicans are extreme minority. The current mania extends far beyond political offices to such things as churches and community organizations. The Republicans make sure that only members of the Party are church officials, Sunday School teachers, community organization officers or even get significant private sector contracts. Get my gist?


        I get it, Richard. Wow.


    The wonderful world of politics continues to find new lows every day. I understand the humor in your story but I am more concerned about how cats around the world feel about the racist costume the accomplice has adorned. “Cat face” is of real concern to my 2 cats and I am sure they are not alone. Please continue to use your platform to bring this issue to light. ….Good job and God Bless.


    Richard, You are just the right kind of expert to ask: Can a airliner bring down an “I beam steel tower.. like the world trade center?

    GOD Bless…we live in troubled times.

    • Every architect and structural engineer in the nation, watching those horrific events as they transpired, knew instantly that something was terribly wrong. Both towers collapsed exactly as they would in a controlled demolition. Even with computer controlled demolition, to get a highrise building to collapse vertically is extremely difficult. Because the fires were burning unevenly, there were unequal lateral and vertical forces at work, which would have caused the buildings to fall like a tree. To fall like a stack of pancakes was absolutely impossible due to the laws of physics. Many architects and structural engineers in New York City received threats immediately after 9/11 that they would never get another project if they went public. Architects and structural engineers around the United States actually formed a organization to get the truth before the American public, but neither Congress nor the national media interviewed them. Those in New York City, who spoke out did have bad things happen to them . . . including being found hung . . . of course, the murders were classified as suicides.

      I was not a part of that group, but nevertheless, was persecuted by Octopus. Two weeks after Homeland Security was created by executive order (during the week of 2001 Veterans Day) someone from Homeland Security called all my clients and told them that I was secretly a Muslim and an agent for Al Quaida. I instantly lost all seven contracts that I had with local governments and went without professional income for seven months. “They” then spread rumors around the county, where I lived that I was a draft evader, so Viet Nam and Desert Storm vets started attacking me physically, doing weird things and following me around as I did my chores. All physical confrontations turned out badly for the vets. The truth was that I could have been called to active duty at anytime up to age 65. It would have been very easy for someone to check my record at Georgia Tech to see that I was a Navy Midshipmen there, but apparently no one did. In 2003, Georgia sent to the US Senate a wealthy draft evader, who like Trump was a varsity tennis player that claimed that a bone spur in his leg, would keep him from serving in the military. He immediately was put on the Armed Services Committee. You go figure.


        Richard, Thank you for your response. Clearly the American people have not been told the full 9/11 truth by our Congress, the mass media, universities or well educated religious leaders. I suppose most people vote for money…and care for little else.


        Then there was the third building that fell with no direct impact. It was “pulled” for demolition.

        • A good friend of mine in Boston was killed when the first tower fell. She was staying in the ITC hotel and scheduled to attend a workshop in a tower. However, her mother called because her brother was having a mental health episode . . . or she would have been in the tower. Initially, we were communicating via instant messenger as the horror unfolded. Then she said that she had to talk to someone as she watched her friends being burned alive. Their company’s offices were above where the first plane hit. Then a steel beam from the first tower hit the wall of her room and penetrated the wall. I heard her scream then she said she had to get out of the hotel. That’s the last time I ever heard her voice. The second tower fell on her while she was in the plaza, I guess. They never found her remains.




    That’s a hot looking yellow jacket next to the Ramblin wreck!

    • The sad thing is that I don’t remember her name! She was a Tech student. I had a couple of dates with her, but both times, she consumed vast quantities of hard liquor to the point of being in a near-stupor. That definitely was no-go for a long term relationship. LOL

The Information World is changing!

People of One Fire needs your help to evolve with it.

We are now celebrating the 11th year of the People of One Fire. In that time, we have seen a radical change in the way people receive information. The magazine industry has almost died. Printed newspapers are on life support. Ezines, such as POOF, replaced printed books as the primary means to present new knowledge. Now the media is shifting to videos, animated films of ancient towns, Youtube and three dimensional holograph images.

During the past six years, a privately owned business has generously subsidized my research as I virtually traveled along the coast lines and rivers of the Southeast. That will end in December 2017. I desperately need to find a means to keep our research self-supporting with advertising from a broader range of viewers. Creation of animated architectural history films for POOF and a People of One Fire Youtube Channel appears to be the way. To do this I will need to acquire state-of-art software and video hardware, which I can not afford with my very limited income. Several of you know personally that I live a very modest lifestyle. If you can help with this endeavor, it will be greatly appreciated.

Support Us!

Richard Thornton . . . the truth is out there somewhere!
