from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
There is presently a big push not only to rewrite both history and the present regarding blacks and slavery, but now the cancel culture mob has decided to also include American Indian heritage, at the expense of the evil white European settlers/oppressors.
Actually, we know what this really is and has been about – free market capitalism vs. Marxism/communism, but that’s for another time.
The Washington Redskins football team has been cowed into dropping the name “Redskins” for something more appropriate and sensitive to the feelings of Native Americans. The Washington Code Talkers really rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it. Don’t laugh – it’s a real suggestion.
Thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, does Oklahoma now have to be split in half and given back to the Indians? How is that going to work, Justice Gorsuch?
Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts is now Plimoth Patuxet, as a tip of the hat to the Wampanoag Indian Tribe and because “plantation” is hurtful to modern sensibilities.
And we’re no longer allowed to call them American Indians – you know, because of that evil white guy Christopher Columbus who wasn’t even smart enough to realize he hadn’t landed in India.
Columbus Day is being changed to Native American or Indigenous People’s Day.
And speaking of Native Americans – why do we call them this? Is it simply because they were here before Europeans arrived? Or is it because they’ve always been here, thus the name Indigenous Peoples?
Most would say the latter, but they’d be wrong.
I have no beef with the American Indian. But with all this rewriting of history, I thought I’d remind people of their actual history and lineage.
According to Webster’s dictionary, “INDIGENOUS applies to that which is not only native but which, as far as can be determined, has never been introduced or brought from elsewhere.”
Well, if this is the case, and it is, the Native Americans aren’t indigenous, they’re actually Russian immigrants.
