Depp Film Distorts History, Portraying Only Whites as Brutal
‘One by one, the children and young women were pegged out naked beside the camp fire,’ according to a contemporary account. ‘They were skinned, sliced, and horribly mutilated, and finally burned alive by vengeful women determined to wring the last shriek and convulsion from their agonised bodies. Matilda Lockhart’s six-year-old sister was among these unfortunates who died screaming under the high plains moon.’
Not only were the Comanche specialists in torture, they were also the most ferocious and successful warriors — indeed, they become known as ‘Lords of the Plains’.
They were as imperialist and genocidal as the white settlers who eventually vanquished them.
So what else is new? United States victim groups are presented by journalists as saintly, while caucasians are portrayed as murderous liars, rapists and racists. That is what the main stream propagandists call objectivity.
The truth Johnny Depp wants to hide about the real-life Tontos: How Comanche Indians butchered babies, roasted enemies alive and would ride 1,000 miles to wipe out one family
Comanche Indians were responsible for one of the most brutal slaughters in the history of the Wild West
However, Johnny Depp wants to play Tonto in a more sympathetic light
