You Know What Amuses Me?

How people who bring up the American indians somehow think it’s some sort of “gotcha” moment for people who oppose immigration. “Oh yeah, well YOUR family pushed out the indians, so suck it up!”

It never fails to astound me how people who bring up the American indians don’t realize that it’s quite possibly the best anti-immigration argument of all. Yes, let’s have what happened to the indians happen to us. Great idea.

    Last I checked, evidence pointed to the ‘Native Americans’ immigrating from another area and completely displacing yet another group.

    Anyone who plays the ‘American Indians!’ card isn’t trying to give a rational argument. It’s not even a ‘Gotcha!’, as you point out. It’s just the bleating of a person saying ‘I want what I want, stop complaining!’

    And a good share of the people who would play that card would, if third world immigration severely hit their previously insulated neighborhoods, end up moving out and saying things like ‘Look, I’m all in favor of immigration, BUT…’ under their breath.

    Exactly.

    Another twist such fools try is to falsely liken the Pilgrims and other early English settlers to present-day illegal aliens, oops!, I mean “undocumented Democrats” But, of course, we (*) had no governments beyond what a successful war-leader could impose locally, and no laws concerning immigration beyond “if we don’t manage to kill you, you get to stay” — the English colonists were not “immigrants”, they were settlers (**)

    Moreover, at the time the English first started colonizing — more than a century after First Contact — the lands they entered were still all-but depopulated due to commonplace Old World diseases to which we had no “survival of the fittest” natural immunities.

    Similarly, a couple of centuries later, when the American settlers began settling the Old Northwest (aka the Ohio country), the lands they entered were all-but empty of Indian inhabitants, because during Colonial times the Iroquois of New York had engaged in massive “ethnic cleansing” of the Ohio territory, in what is called the “Beaver Wars”. Indians from outside the Ohio territory were still in the early stages of re-settling these lands when the Americans were first coming into them.

    (*) I’m momentarily letting my Indian ancestor speak for all my ancestors

    (**) and, likewise, the “undocumented Democrats” are settlers — they are being used by both the government of Mexico and by the traitorous Democrats (but I repeat myself) and RINOS of our own self-selected/satisfied elites to displace and eliminate the historical American people.

      Not that it’s that important, but the above was supposed to be “(*) I’m momentarily letting my Indian ancestors speak for all my ancestors”
