Obama: Unless you were a Native American, you came from someplace else
Washington Examiner ^ | 1/29/13 | Charlie Spiering

Posted on 01/29/2013 8:39:07 PM PST by Nachum

This afternoon in Las Vegas, President Obama reminded most American citizens that they were descended from immigrants themselves. Obama warned that the issue was an emotional one, but that it was important for Americans to not view it as “us versus them.” “It’s really important to remember our history,” Obama continued. “Unless you were one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from someplace else, somebody brought you,” he said

Where did the native Americans come from via the great land bridge of the ice age? I’m sure there are other theories.

What a tired canard. Doesn’t the “smartest man in the world” know that EVERYONE, including the Indians, came here from somewhere else? According to scientists, we’re all Africans. You’d think an African would know that.

Some of my kin has been here 400 years.

If family tradition and a common sense read on known history is to be believed, some of them have been here a whole lot longer than that. At least a thousand years longer.

Which has absolutely nothing to do with the price of tea in China. Or with the existence of a birth certificate in Mombassa.

Or whether the United States of America is still a nation with defined borders and the rule of law.

“Native” Americans came from somewhere else. Is there some kind of arbitrary time limit and everyone here before that is “native”?

That’s the “theory” they taught me when I was a kid.

I think it’s bunk. I subscribe to the idea most came up from South America and those folks came from Asia across the ocean.

Nobody "brought" me here. I was BORN here! Descended from ancestors that legally came here almost 500 years ago and they had to jump through hurdles to legally settle here under British regulations. None of them snuck over here.

Hey, Obama, unlike you, I’ve held a real job, paid real taxes, and didn’t make millions off the public dime.

Presidents should have to pay back any money they make over $400,000 dollars a year.

Oh, right, this is ObamaWorld, where rules only apply to you and me, not those who are better than us. I feel so much safer knowing that the only guns in the room are under his control...NOT.

It’s the same exact line of thought. You didn’t make it on your own, you didn’t get here on your own.

He doesn’t seem to realize that even the native Americans migrated here.

Did someone remind that purple-lipped arsehole that even the "Native Americans" did not evolve in place, but came from somewhere else?

Of course not, the only ones present were no doubt his knee pad wearing MSM creeps. And they, being dumbed-down like most in the US these days, did not know any better.

I am a native American. I was born in Cattaraugus County of New York State, to parents who were also native Americans, whose progenitors were native Americans, for generations back; to my forbears, many of whom (all?) were immigrants from another continent settling here. As were the ancestors of Tuscaroran, or Mayan, or Inuit history, battling each other to stake out their claims to land on this continent.

No individual born here in America to parents who were also born here, whether having Shoshone or Mohawk or Aztec, or Egyptian or Mandingo, or Manchurian, or Hindu progenitors, is more or less native American than myself.

Don't push that "Native" American, scalp-taking, stake-torturing, squaw-abusing, tobacco-inhaling nonsense on me, Buds. I'm not going to buy it or bow to it.

And if you're Afro-American, whether with light or deep melanin in your epithelial covering, go home with my blessing. But friend, if you are native American, loving and serving this beautiful homeland, let's be pals.

Except Barack Hussein Obama, that is.

*********************

I think that you are on to something that underlies Obama’s thought process and propaganda. That a person is not an individual - they are only a part of a collective whole. And only even exist because of the collective whole. And it is the collective that has value. The individual on its own is literally nothing - without value or substance or worth.

We usually think of an individual person as being valuable on their own, and combine people with different talents together and you can make something bigger and better (a company, etc.). But it is just the other way around with Obama. If it weren’t for the collective whole, the individual WOULD NOT EXIST. Therefore - the individual owes EVERYTHING to the collective whole.

I've got news for the @sshole-in-Chief!! There are NO NATIVE AMERICANS! Those traditionally called Indians also came from somewhere else. What a dumbf&%$ this chit-for-brains is.

By the way, Mr. Dumb@ss, my ancestors came to this continent 360+ years ago. While that isn't the 10,000 years claimed by "Native Americans" (who came here over the land bridge from Eurasia), it is way farther back in time than your ancestors can claim.

I’m sorry, but I think that you are lowering yourself to his level, arguing with such idiocies, and presenting your own biography to prove he’s wrong.

No, he’s wrong because he’s expressing thoughts of a mentally retarded person, to whom only simplistic truisms appeal and are understandable.

Let’s not forget that we’re not talking about LEGAL immigration, but illegal immigration (a.k.a. gate-crashing, invading).

The two types are always being conflated, and you never hear talking heads use the “i” word (illegal).

I’m descended from immigrants, but my Great-Grandfather came here legally on a ship from Europe. He didn’t hop a fence or sign up for entitlements at the first opportunity, and he learned how to speak English.

The Indigenous Peoples HERE before Europeans were not Americans OR Indians, original or otherwise. You’d think he might know that too.
In fact ‘American Indians’ is something of an oxymoron.
Sort of like obama calling himself an American when he is really anything but. He is to America what kryptonite was to Superman.
Furthermore, while HE might have come from someplace else and might not even know where, I didn’t. I was born here. I am a Native American. Period.

And where does it, this kind of thinking, come from? Why, it comes straight from Obama’s mentor professor William Ayers himself, for whom individuals are nothing, and 20 to 30 million of them can and should probably be gotten rid of on the road to Utopia. We know exactly who inspired such thinking in the past century.

Is that Obama’s excuse for letting any illegal cross our non-existent borders? Sorry Obama, the ‘other’ people who came her did it legally. It’s the difference between a valued guest in your home and a thief. Both are people who came to your home - but very different in how they’re welcomed or not... Grow up democrats.
