---SNIP--- if we really want to commemorate horrifying, unspeakable violence and oppression in the Americas, Ive got the perfect holiday: Indigenous Peoples Day.
Long before the white European knew a North American continent existed, Indians of the Northern Plains were massacring entire villages, says George Franklin Feldman in the book Cannibalism, Headhunting and Human Sacrifice in North America: A History Forgotten. And not just killed, but mutilated. Hands and feet were cut off, each bodys head was scalped, the remains were left scattered around the village, which was burned.

Speaking of genocide didn’t those “indigenous people” grow tobacco. Even King James called tobacco a “noxious” weed. Millions of people died over the centuries from lung cancer, COPD and a host of other respiratory ailments from that noxious weed.
Hard times make for hard people.
The Indians were living in hard times.
What galls me is the papering-over of their history and the swipe at Americans of European Descent for being too “hard” on the Indians.
One of the Roosevelt boys said: If it wasn’t for the white man, there wouldn’t be any Indians left...they killed each other.
Skinning alive was also common practice among native American tribes. The entire false history that the white man came to America just to kill the peaceful native inhabitants is just another human sacrifice to the god of political correctness. Native Americans didn’t own North America—they lived in individual tribes separated by vast areas of no man’s land. They no more owned it than the wild jack rabbits and buffalo that lived there. They talk about Europeans spreading diseases, but plagues also appeared in Europe that came from America. Syphilis, for one, killed millions.
As has been said many times, “The white man didn’t do anything to the Indians that they didn’t do to each other before he got here.”......................
Tobacco saved the colonies in Virginia and Maryland. It was a ‘cash crop’ they could sell and get $$$ for.
Like dummy NFLers who stood for Englands anthem and knelt Americas. The British empire had nothing to do with the slave trade.
We should call it Cannibal Day.
Sicilian actor Espera de Corti cries because he can't get a job unless he pretends to be an Indian.
Yes it was a cash crop that wrecked havoc.
The Discovery and Conquest of Mexico by Bernal Diaz should be required reading for every American school child in High School.
Here is my review and summation:
Here is a link to the Amazon page:
The entire false history that the white man came to America just to kill the peaceful native inhabitants is just another human sacrifice to the god of political correctness.
Don’t forget that the native Americans who ‘lived in harmony’ with nature hunted numerous species to extinction including:
Mammoths, mastodons, aurocs, great sloths, saber tooth tigers, etc.
I’ve read a number of books about life’s on the frontier (Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky) with first-hand accounts. The natives were ornery cusses, you might say. They would lop limbs off captured enemies, roast them, and have the victim watch them eat him! They would open your abdomen, tie an end of your intestines to a post, and force you to walk around the post, wrapping your guts around the post.
We should honor this?
Besides, what the hell did they accomplish in 10,000 years? Maybe invent the wheel? Nope.
Every society and civilization on earth lived through "hard times." The difference is that some civilizations did something about it by applying human ingenuity and industriousness. That's a weak excuse for 10,000 years of nothing.
