The First Nations are precisely that… “Nations”… “Nationalities”… NOT “Tribes”. Note well how the Anglos treated and still treat them. It shows Anglo rhetoric to be hypocrisy and lies. What does that tell you about Anglos? Nothing good, I’d warrant… they did acquit the Bundys even though they seized public property by force of arms, didn’t they? It shows you that all-too-many Anglos still worship violence, armed coercion, a twisted definition of “freedom” (“I get to do what I want and you can’t say a thing about it”), and anarchic chaos (but stacked in favour of them, natch). Their “Exceptionalism” is evil of the highest order, their rants that America is “Indispensable” fly in the face of history, their claims that America is the absolute hegemon in the world are absurd and derisory, and their submission that they’re the sole moral actors in the world is vile and drooling pretence.
Stop the Dakota Access Pipeline… there are other routes for it. It’s nothing but the physical expression of Anglo hubris, arrogance, and greed. God do spare us…
