Latest right wing conspiracy theory: Obama is giving america back to the injuns


Barack Obama yesterday voiced his support for a U.N. resolution that asserts that "indigenous peoples have the right to own, use, develop and control the lands, territories and resources" that they traditionally owned or occupied. And they do. Just like every other American. It's non-binding, meaning it doesn't actually do anything. It's nothing but a group high-five.

Well luckily for real Americans like us, WorldNetDaily's on top of this shit..

Obama to give Manhattan back to Native Americans?

President Obama is voicing support for a U.N. resolution that could accomplish something as radical as relinquishing some U.S. sovereignty and opening a path for the return of ancient tribal lands to American Indians, including even parts of Manhattan.

The issue is causing alarm among legal experts.

In recent remarks at the White House during a "tribal nations conference," Obama endorsed the "United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People," which includes a sweeping declaration that "indigenous peoples have a right to lands and resources they traditionally occupied or otherwise used" but that later were acquired by occupying forces.


The international agreement is very serious business, one legal expert tells WND, and could cause problems for the U.S. long after Obama is gone from the White House, if made part of U.S. law.

"One can anticipate that some tribes will seek to use this resolution to re-litigate centuries-old land disputes that courts have already rejected," said Frank at the Manhattan Institute.

The litigation process, according to the roadmap drawn up during the Carter era, would seek, however, to create a "non-hostile environment" in which tribes could repurchase lands and "extinguish the rights of current occupants," Jennings Nottoway told WND.

What we have here are people who have a serious a problem with other cultures. I don't know what that's called. It's not exactly racism, and it's not exactly xenophobia, but I'm sure it's all related psychologically. It's a fear of people who look and act differently than you do. On Fox News' website a couple weeks ago, I saw a headline speculating that Obama is heading for reparations, simply because he's becoming more open minded about gay rights (what else is he going to change his mind on, HUH!?) The right wing would be hating a democratic president no matter what his skin color, but what we're seeing here is a special kind of hatred that's smacking of racial undertones.

Let's go back to Thanksgiving. Rush Limbaugh doesn't like it when Native Americans are acknowledged, especially when it's in a positive light.

In a Thanksgiving day proclamation on the White House website, Obama declared, "This Thanksgiving Day, we reflect on the compassion and contributions of Native Americans, whose skill in agriculture helped the early colonists survive, and whose rich culture continues to add to our Nation's heritage."

" their casinos and on their reservations," Limbaugh added as he read the president's words.

"This spirit brought together the newly arrived Pilgrims and the Wampanoag tribe -- who had been living and thriving around Plymouth, Massachusetts for thousands of years -- in an autumn harvest feast centuries ago," Obama's proclamation also said.

"So, we were the invaders," complained Limbaugh. "We were incompetent idiots. We didn't know how to feed ourselves so they came along and showed us how and that's what Thanksgiving is all about."

YES, YOU FAT PIECE OF SHIT. We invaded lands that were already occupied. The United States arguably committed genocide against the civilizations that were already here. That happened. Acknowledging it is the very least you can do, but I guess even that is too much for someone who's deluded himself into thinking that it's impossible for America to have ever committed a wrong in its entire history. I hope you choke along with all the rest of the holocaust deniers.

That guy in the picture up there next to Obama? I recognized him. That man is Joe Medicine Crow, and he is a fucking hero. Why do Republicans hate the troops? Here he is in Ken Burns' The War telling his unbelievable story.
