Tribes: Trump’s monument order disrespects native people


President Donald Trump’s rare move to shrink two large national monuments in Utah triggered another round of outrage among Native American leaders who vowed to unite and take the fight to court to preserve protections for lands they consider sacred.

    They sound almost Arab: “This, as far as all can see has been our homeworld since before time and after time ends!!”

    Well isn’t that sweet?

    The “sacred land” Indian scam sounds an awfully lot like the third-holiest site in Islam scam.
    How do you make them prove their case? I don’t think they can.

    • “Sacred land” or math?

      What do you teach your children?

      What will give your children the greatest chance of success?

      Don’t let liberal multi-culti BS get in the way of your answer.

    SAVE THE SACRED GRASSHOPPER!! Meanwhile feminist Trudeau has basically turned Canada over to the indians.

    • Saying Trudeau has his head up his ass, makes all asses a look bad.

    Since time began this has been our sacred casino …oops…burial grounds….

    I have real difficulty imagining the transcendent nature of that remark resonating with a people who wittingly or unwittingly choose to remain or are snookered by their leaders to remain a Stone Age remnant.

    Smudge pots… eagle feathers….sweat lodges….gah!!!!!

    Dear Indigenous Peoples,
    You had 14,500 years to do something with the lands we now call N. America. You didn’t. Just be happy we didn’t eradicate your ancestors and your culture from the face of the earth. We still can. Now shut up and stop being a feather-wearing, welfare cry-baby.

      One cannot “eradicate” a “culture” that was never there to begin with. “Stone Age culture” is a contradictory term, and Canada’s indigenous people were living in the Stone Age until Europeans arrived. No wheel, flint arrowheads, largely nomadic existences, and maybe the more advanced tribes enjoyed a touch of sun worship. Unfortunately, they have been sold a bill of goods drawn up by Hollywood in gorgeous Technicolor. Even today, Canada’s indigenous “Chiefs” rent their headdresses from Hollywood providers. It’s genuinely hilarious and also very sad……..

    And how were these lands treated before Obama federalized them?
