But of course Anglo-centric American History is a Core Credit.

So, part of the Arizona “show your papers” lynch “law” has a complete defunding of Ethnic Studies which reflect, cumulatively, the histories of a substantial majority of the people in the state. Specifically at U of A Tucson the Tucson Police RIOT squad were called to disperse and arrest students and advocates who exercised their rights to make statements opposing the slashing of Mexican-American studies, African American Studies and Native American Studies from the curriculum and the denial and decertification of degrees in which Ethnic Studies are counted as Core Credits. Much like the illegal harrassment of Ward Churchill in Denver, only on a grand scale.
At the required-by-law “does anybody object?” session the opponents of slashing E.S. were railroaded by an arbitrary time limit, any who spoke longer than the allowed time, was arrested. One dragged away in chains by the Tucson Riot Pigs was a respected and tenured professor, she is 69 years old and disabled.
We’ll have a huge crowd of the Racists here in the West Side of Colorado Springs over the Memorial Day weekend, people whose anguished and shrill shrieking screams rise up in a mighty Whiney Chorus if anybody DARES suggest that the Officially Approved “White Side of the Story” is wrong on many counts and the “settling” of the American West came about at the cost of economic, biological and siege warfare against Americans based solely on Racial Grounds.
Murdering thieves like Stanton and Palmer and Chivington, will be honored as Heroes.

Stanton and Palmer received HUGE federal Corporate Welfare subsidies for their railroad enterprises, one square mile Section for each linear mile of railroad track, approved at the same time treaties were drawn up with the Western tribes saying they would always be allowed to keep their lifestyle, and their LIVES, and their freedom…. something Abe Lincoln was signing away with the Railroad Act. Where the Rich Bitch capitalists were given the right to summarily execute people who “trespassed” on “Their” properties. Executions carried out both by Private Mercenary Thugs like the Pinkertons and Wells Fargo agents, and by the United States Army.

All of whom will be celebrated as heroes in a publicly funded subsidized event two weeks hence.
Prepare for the shrill screams of “Racism” to be lofted, once more, by the Anglo-Saxon Establishment, especially those heirs to General Palmers Federally Subsidized Corporate Welfare Real Estate Scam.
Like, most of City Council and all of the County Commissioners.

How DARE anybody suggest that the Indian Wars were Ethnic Cleansing in support of their Corporate Profit Margin?

Just like at the U.A. Tucson board of regents “Meat (deliberate sic) The People” hearings.

Amazing how their “non-racist” anti-immigrant law included Abject racism like that, isn’t it?
So they won’t offer a degree program in Non-Anglo Ethnic studies but WILL continue ta have degrees, even Doctorates, for “American” History from the strictly W.A.S.P. point of view.

Territorial Manifest Destiny Triumphalism strikes yet again.

Celebrating for Territory Days, (courtesy of the free hand-out paper that’s everywhere on the West Side) the “Heroic” Colonel Chivington, the one who led the Babykilling attempted genocide at Sand Creek. How earlier at Glorieta he had Defeated General Silsby (Texas Militia) and how those bad ol’ Arapaho and Cheyenne bottling off the trails in and out of Denver… and contentedly mooing about how the Utes, on the other hand, being “good Indians” and not joining the Resistance to their Genocidal occupation and robbery. Yeah, pat old Chief Ouray on his long gone head and tell him what good “boy” he was.

I tried, really, to look at it from their point of view. How from their Manifest Destiny outlook the “savages” must have been horrifically frightenning… Naaaahhhh… the Triumphalists went out of their way to paint the Cheyenne and Arapaho as the Taliban, one local historian actually said about what’s now Ft Carson that Colonel Chickensh… errr Chivington and his “men” were fighting an insurgency, a war on terror just like the one in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Nice of him to admit, sideways though it be, that the War Against The People of Iraq and Afghanistan is just another Land and Resource Grab just like the one they pulled off right here a hundred and fifty years ago and that the Taliban actually ARE the legitimate Resistance to Occupation. Oh, and Ouray? Chivington and later Palmer rewarded him for being such a Good “boy” by breaking every single treaty they had made with the Utes, even passing laws which effectively made it a Capital Offense to BE Ute.

Chickenshits on Parade.

And the Sand Creek Massacre was exactly that. A massacre, indiscriminately murdering women, children, elderly, didn’t matter.
Just like in VietRaqistan, every baby killed was an “unlawful combatant” and “radicalized” and “extremist”.
They gilded and polished the Chivington Turd.

Defeating the Confederate slavery army? While doing exactly the same thing to American Indians what the Confederates were doing to American Africans.

I wonder if Chivington ever had Ouray on a whipping-post yelling at him “Yo Name TOBY!”

Give the Black Hills back to the Lakota

Close down the strip-mine gold operation in Deadwood, stop maintaining the blasphemous idols carved onto Mount Rushmore, stop maintaining the Custer National Monument, let them rot into the Earth. They poison the very heart of the Earth Mother, Wakan Tonka. That means not “Great Spirit” like it’s usually translated, but The Great Buffalo.
The Lakota and other “sioux” tribes, and other Northern Plains tribes hold the Black Hills to be exactly that Heart. It’s said that from satellite images the Black Hills look like a massive bison heart. That might be a Rorshacht test, an inkblot or a cloud that you can project onto, or a seance where the medium will tell you, or rather, you’ll tell him/her exactly what you wanted to hear.
Maybe, but it sure does look like a bison heart.
Mount Rushmore and the Gold and now, coal mining operations are literally carving the still beating heart of the Earth. The Earth screams at us to stop, but the Big Money men don’t listen.

They carve images of some of their leading Capitalists onto the walls of that heart, and command all the people of America to pay to maintain their blasphemous idolatry.
Deadwood was founded by Lt Colonel George A. Custer while he was still in the Army. An illegal encampment of illegal immigrants onto the ultimate in American Land. Unlike migrant workers with the same title, they came not to try make an honest living, not to keep alive the hope of citizenship, the fabled “land of opportunity” touted in the propaganda.

They came to slaughter Wakan Tonka slowly, carve her open and cut holes in her heart while she’s still alive.
The Supreme Court very recently ruled that the land was, indeed, illegally seized, and offered as repayment … a settlement that would be less than a hundredth of a penny on every ten dollars taken out by the greed freaks.
Close down Sturgis, close down Deadwood. Open the gates of the Concentration/POW camps like Wounded Knee and Pine Ridge “reservations”.

Give the land back and save your Pious self-righteous “concern” for whether the Lakota and other sioux will make a profit from THEIR land. Don’t ask what they will do with it, it’s none of your God-damned business. You could use that same logic to lock me into servitude, where all my property (such as it is) could be seized and administered by “those who can manage it better”.
Who’s the richest man in the world, Bill Gates, Hosni Mubarak, Queen Elizabeth the Second? Hmm? Whoever it is, by the logic which denies the Lakota and, by extension, every tribe in America, full title to their lands, anybody who is NOT the richest man in the world could have his property seized and “administered” for him by those who are richer.

Give them back their land and don’t worry about what they’ll do with it. It will be a damn sight better than what the Thieves have done with it.

None of that “Noble Savage” crap either, it’s protectionist talk, “The Noble Savage NEEDS the Great White Father (a title invented by King George the Second of England) to protect him!”

And it’s just an excuse to take what isn’t yours and pretend that you’re “helping” the victims of your thefts and murders.
There were more Congressional Medals of Honor given to U.S. soldiers for committing ONE episode of genocide, the Wounded Knee Massacre, (edited to correct) than for any other battle in any other single war in American History. Really heroic, slaughtering children and elderly, men and women alike.
More medals given the murderers for those actions than were given in the entirety of World War Two, or the American involvement therein. Such Gallantry.

On Memorial Day there’s always a tribute in Washing Tundy Sea for those given the CMOH. That ceremony is corrupted and tainted and shit-stained by the medals given for that action.

Yeah, I know I’m in a state which worships Custer, Chivington, Carson, Palmer, Stanton, and the other murderous rogues who accompanied them on their rampages.

I realize too that their descendants live all around me and will be angry that I “slandered” great-great-grandpappy like that.
Your grandfathers dishonored their own names, and you bring shame to your own by continuing to worship the murders and thefts they committed.

Give the Black Hills back to the Lakota.
