    Ann Coulter

    Ann Coulter made a guest appearance on The View to promote her latest book Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country Into a Third World Hellhole. Since Coulter has built an entire career on the shock value of her political opinions, it is not surprising that this interview was filled with controversial statements about immigrants, and a questionable presentation of United States history.

    A couple minutes into the interview, host Ana Navarro challenged Coulter’s views about immigrants by asking if her family immigrated to America. Coulter responded to Navarro’s question by stating that she is actually a Native American because she descended from the early settlers who founded the United States. Coulter goes on to say that she is also not an immigrant because she does not currently reside on tribal land (even though she likely does). The interview transcript that is listed below outlines the conversation between Navarro and Coulter:

    Ana Navarro: “What’s your family’s immigration story, right, are you a Native American?”


    Advertisment

                Ann Coulter: “Why, yes I am. I am a settler. I am descended from settlers—not from immigrants.”

                Raven-Symoné: “So that’s not a Native American, you are…”

                Padma Lakshmi: “That’s not a Native American, that’s an immigrant…That’s just a holder…”

                Ann Coulter: “No, if you mean Indian…If you mean INDIAN…”

                Ana Navarro: “Were you already here when the pilgrims showed up? Were your people here?”

                Ann Coulter: “Well no, but I am not living in Cherokee Nation. So, I am not an immigrant to Cherokee Nation. I am living in America—which was created by settlers, not immigrants.”

    Although Coulter shares a number of questionable comments throughout the interview, I would like to focus this discussion on why Coulter chooses to call herself a Native American.

    Coulter’s beliefs about the history of the United States are steeped in a Manifest Destiny narrative. To Coulter, America came into existence because of the efforts and ingenuity of early settlers to discover an unoccupied territory and forge a government. Coulter defends this half-truth by stating that: “[she is] not living in Cherokee Nation. So [she is] not an immigrant to Cherokee Nation. [She is] living in America—which was created by settlers, not immigrants.” Her views on how America came to be purposefully ignore the long legacy of aboriginal land ownership. Moreover, she does not acknowledge that America was not unoccupied when it was “discovered” by settlers, or the atrocities that were committed against Native people that resulted in the displacement of these societies to the reservations that exist today.

    The core of Coulter’s argument against immigration (which is highlighted in the interview transcript) is that there exists two classifications of immigrants, (1) the early settlers that predate the United States, and (2) everyone else. Coulter is not using the term Native American to claim a connection to a Native Nation, rather, she is using the label as a rhetorical tool to weave a semantic argument. Her bastardized definition of Native American enables her to craft an artificial (and arguably racist) hierarchy where her ancestry and individuals sharing a similar background as her are deemed “real Americans.” In essence, Coulter has given herself the right to define who belongs in this Country, and who does not. Following Coulter’s argument to its logical end, neither Native people or anyone who has immigrated in the last 100 years can fit into Coulter’s narrowed definition of a “real American.”

    Coulter is soft-selling this Country’s painful history of colonization in order to spin a more palatable creation story of the United States that is in alignment with her political orientations, and her understanding of herself as a “true American.” However, for Coulter to admit that she is anything other than a Native American would weaken her broader ideological arguments against immigration to a-pot-calling-a-kettle-black debate.

        Forget Coulter. It was Massachusetts’ senior senator, Elizabeth Warren—Chief Spreading Bull—who claimed to be 1/64th Cherokee in order qualify for a $300,000 Native American academic staffing position.

        What I find particularly amusing is the fact that there is a standing joke amongst “Native Americans,” that whenever you meet someone who claims to be Indian, or part Indian, but they don’t look Indian…they’re always Cherokee.

        That has certainly been my own experience over the years. Here in Fairbanks I have a number of Athabascan acquaintances; but over the years, except for full-blooded Indians, I’ve never meet anyone who claims whatever partial percentage of Indian blood but what they claim to be: Cherokee (maybe once or twice, Chippewa; now OIjibwe). Never, so far as I know, met someone who had “Lochapoka” blood.

        Must be something cool-sounding about the word Cherokee; or maybe it’s that noble association with the tragic “Trail of Tears.”

          Its important to point out the major difference between immigration long ago and immigration now. Immigrant used to have responsibilities, like learning english, assimilated, and weren’t given financial support from the government. They were expected to serve the country when called upon and be loyal to this country. Now, they don’t have to do any of that. Our country does everything they can to make sure immigrants don’t have to assimilate. It’s considered racist to suggest learning english, so we spend our money teaching, translatings, printing documents in every language out there. I’m fact we are now expected to give up certain rights to accomidate the ridiculous cultural sensitivities of people coming to join our society. If immigrants today really think they just as ligit as past immigrants, who actually did build this country, then they need to earn it.

        European settlers created the America we see today, not Native Americans. Chinese built the railroads, and the three million slaves at the peak of American slavery contributed to the economic growth of the USA, but not nearly to the extent of the millions of European immigrants. If slavery made the USA rich, why isn’t Brazil just as rich as the USA? After all, they had more slaves.

        • Normandie Kent

          European settlers created a cess pool on stolen lands. They didn’t do anything that the Native People didn’t do on a grander scale! There will be a time when the native Americans will get back most of their lands that were stolen from them. It’s already happening in a lot of places as we speak.

          • Native jo

            It’s really not happening. Once again native will become second class citizens to entitled, disrespectful, mooching religous freaks who will impose themselves on us.

      • Steve

        Considering it wasn’t until the 1900’s that anyone claimed or were referred to as “native” who is to say she is wrong?

        Some claim Indians were the first, some claim Asians were the first, some claim Europeans were the first and science hasn’t settled the question.

        • Normandie Kent

          Europeans first!? Ha ha! It is most certainly settled that Native Americans were the first people in this continent. 100s of years of Science refutes the wishful longings of rootless European immigrants looking against all reason that somehow Europeans made it here first. It’s pathetic really because if they did somehow make it here , they would not be related to the modern European Invaders, but would be the direct ancestors of our modern Native Americans. These early Europeans would not give the modern Euros any legit claim to America. That’s just wishful thinking on your part dude.

        • Native jo

          English settlers made america. They fought the battles, created a unique constitution that enables the country to grow into the land of opportunity.

      • Dcgorillafighter

        No such creature as Native American but only early Asian immigrants who came across the Bering strait land mass. There were relatively few people in North America before the settlers and later immigrants came.

      • immykal

        Actually, it is your argument that is bastardized – Indians did not consider themselves American until the early 1900’s – so they are NOT Native Americans – in fact the earliest inhabitants were not Indian either. You may wish to look up Kennewick Man, who appears to be of European descent and was here before any “Indians” ..

        • Tom_C

          Wait a minute – do you mean the REAL native americans were killed off by the people who now call themselves “Native Americans”?
          Whoooaaaa….

          • Normandie Kent

            Wrong! Kenniwick man and all ancient Native remains are all gennetically Amerindian.and yes the real “Native Americans” were killed off by people who now wish they could be the real Native Americans but they’re not , they are the sons of the immigrants , who came a few hundred years ago or less, from europe to make this an immigrant Nation.

            • Ace

              All nations are.

          • Normandie Kent

            Exactly, your European ancestors genocided most of the real native Americans, and those European descendants of the genociders now think they should be called ” native Americans. It’s not going to happen.

        • Alvin Stensen

          Nice try BUT!: His closest living relatives are the Ainu people of Japan, They found an even older skeleton in the Yucatan that is definitely what we call today “Native American” & since it is established that the earliest humans & thus the birthplace of mankind is on the African continent all European descended people are “IMMIGRANTS”! By your logic of course. Just saying.

          And of course as Ann said to my man Riley Freeman ” Bit ? ch got books to sell”

          • Normandie Kent

            Nice try but the Ainus are not even closely related to Kennewick man. The Native Americans are. Kenniwick man was DNA tested 2 times and both times he was most closely related to the Native Americans. Also the girl from Yucatan was also related to modern Native Americans. Dude you should be embarrassed for spouted debunked scientific information. Oh and guess what, the NATIVE AMERICANs won the right to rebury Kenniwick Man, because he is genetically an ancestor!

          • Normandie Kent

            Bullshit! Native Americans were being called Americans ( Not Native) just Americans starting in the early 1500s, they were the original Americans. Your Ancestors were not called Americans but British Colonials or British Subjects in theAmerican colonies. That were not called Americans until after the Revolutionary war, after 1812. You know nothing about science or history. The Natives obviously had to be called something else after the new immigrants appropriated the Name Americans, they stole that as well as everything else they wanted. Pathetic!

        • Normandie Kent

          I wish you would try and keep up with the science if your going bring up Kenniwick Man. Why are you putting a link up thats over a year old? Let me put you straight on a few things. DNA sequencing as of June 18, 2015 . By Eske Willerslev a Danish biogeneticist at the university of Copenhagen. Sequenced K man’s entire genome and hs Y dna haplogroup is Q and his Mt dna haplogroup is X2a. Purely Native American haplogroups. He was also closer to other Native Americans than to any other group genetically so no he is not Cacasian, Ainu, isralite or anything else but Native American. Native Americans evolved in America for thousands of years if they are not Native Americans because they have some common ancestry with Asians 30 or 40 thousand years ago then so do you white people Because your ancestors left Asia way after the Native americans. Also on the phylogenetic tree europeans are closer to Africans genetically than Native American are, does that make you half african? The indigenous people of the americas are literally and legaly Native Americans, and you people are just American.

          • Ace

            Native American is such a loaded term. For the longest time a fair number were Guys Living North of the Rio Grande (Glinrogs). And they lived in harmony with nature (Glinharns?). Glinrogs mixed it up with each other, including invading, killing, stealing, and enslaving other Glinrogs. Then they did that to us and we did that to them. We’re top dog now but want to toss that out the window for some reason, so now Nigerians and Muslims will be top dog. What’s all the fuss?

              Europeans are descendants of Asian Nomads and Middle Eastern Farmers. They are relatively new to Europe and their Male line ancestors are west Asian step nomads and on the maternal lines are middle eastern pastoralists. They have only been in Europe for 2,500 years before the European hordes invaded the Americas, it’s no wonder they have no deep roots anywhere, not even America that they claim to love. They have no love for anywhere and have no ancestral homelands, their great grandfathers were from the Mongol hordes and their great grandmother liked to have a big camel between their legs.. It’s

        Manifest destiny? Actually it was much earlier than that. God told the Jews to go forth and multiply, that they had command over everything that crawled or walked… The children of Abraham have done that with a vengeance ever since.

          Yeah so?! you are definitely not the progeny of this made up person Abraham. Not are you a Jew. Also America is not part of the promised land, because those fools did not even know that the Americas or the Native Americans existed!

        ——————-
        Actually it was to discover an ‘undefended’ territory… The only places European Christians did not gobble up were where they found armies equal to themselves; the Middle East, and China… Everywhere else it was all “nice place you got here, now get out”…

          Lets face it, you are jealous that they are of this LAND, and you are not But you will never be native. So if you cant be Native American, neither can the NAs. Anyways, its s a legal title and they are considered NA by the goverment, so you don’t get to decide who is Native American or not. So quit y’alls whining.

          • rick hayden

            actually you know nothing about me, my gradma was full blooded, not sure what that makes me but do not care, am an american. normandie, nobody that we know of historically is of this land so that is just BS. whatever our government does, makes no difference to me, they are indians and they can call them whatever, i decide, knowing the truth. if you are an indian, do you consider everything our government does as being gospel, think not, bad argument. not whining, just making an observation, one you know is right.

        Ann Coulter didn’t descend from settlers; she descended from my colon.

      • Kenneth William Gambill

        This entire argument is semantics. That’s it. Any one born in America is a Native American, however that term as a racial classifier is Racist since we use it to describe a people who are indigenous to America. Like Blacks, Whites, Latinos. Asians and Arabs we lump hundreds of distinct cultures under one category each classified by skin tone, similarity in features and call them “races”. We intentionally erase whole cultures, whole histories, and whole Identities with these terms.
        There were at least 100+ distinct tribes (50+ Nations) living in America. of those Lakota, Cherokee, Sioux, and Apache are some of the best known tribes, but when we say Native American we don’t think in terms of individual cultures like say German, Mexican, Hawaiian, or Haitian. Yet they were distinct cultures in of themselves. Do you see the racism in that notion?

        The same Goes for “African Americans”. Just because your black, and majority of Blacks live in Africa doesn’t mean that you’re African. if you were never born there you have no rights to claim that- ever. The same Goes for those of Asians descent, Latino Descent, Caucasian Decent and Arab Descent who were born in America. To the peoples of Arabia, Asia, Africa, South America, Central America.. you’re STILL American. That is the culture that you born into. Being Born of German Ancestry doesn’t make me German or a Citizen of Germany. Just because I speak the language doesn’t mean I know any great detail of their culture.I don’t get to claim the German Culture because I am of the same skin tone of a German (frankly there are Black Germans too.. if you want to be honest about it) If you’re doing that then you are Appropriating that culture, stealing an identity that isn’t yours. It doesn’t matter if you can trace your ancestry back one generation or a thousand generations. You don’t live in the past. You live in the Now. Your “now” is in modern day America. You are an American that’s it.

        America is a melting pot. Traditions and languages get brought to our shores from the world over. It get assimilated in to our culture and becomes apart of our culture. That’s what makes America beautiful E Pluribus Unum (Out of the many, One), Every immigrant, whether slave or free, endured some hardship. Yes, there were tragic things done, but this incessant bickering about who did what to whom and when doesn’t change that event in one little instance.

        You can celebrate your ancestry, but it doesn’t change that you’re American either as a natural born citizen. Only those that have immigrated here can use the Title African American, German American, Canadian American. The Indigenous people should be able to Use a Nation name for their Identity. It’s who they are. They don’t need the -American since it’s already well understood where they originated especially if they live or were born of a Reservation.

        This racist semantics has gotten way over the top. It has to stop. It isn’t just Anne’s Fault either. It’s Ravens. Padma’s and even Christie’s (the author of this article) for perpetrating these false racial narratives. It’s time we as country grew up. seriously.

        • Pablo Diablo

          The WASP is the only true American…the rest are just rabble-rousers who feel the need to complain.

        • sparcboy

          “…people who are indigenous to America.”

          I suggest you look up the definition of the word “indigenous”. Humans are not indigenous to the Americas. All humans in the Americas are either descendants of peoples who migrated here or they migrated here.

          You might also want to look up the definition of “native”. A person is a native of where they are born. If you were born in America, then you’re a native American.

          “The same Goes for “African Americans”. Just because your black, and majority of Blacks live in Africa doesn’t mean that you’re African. if you were never born there you have no rights to claim that- ever.”

          According to science, humans evolved in Africa. Technically, an American Indian is an Afro-Asian-American. Those who came by way of Europe are Afro-Euro-American. You see, if we go back far enough, Europeans and American Indians have a common ancestor. It would have been accurate if when the first European arrived in the Americas, the American Indian asked, “What took you so long getting her cousin?”. We are all distant cousins.

          America is a melting pot. Oh if that were only true. There are many places in this country where a person can wake up to a weather and traffic report on the radio, drop the kids off at school and speak to their teacher, go to the post office, grocery store, doctor and pharmacy and never need to speak a single word of English. That is not a melting pot, where different ores melt together to form a new, different metal, but a salad bowl. Where it’s all mixed together but all the ingredients still maintain their identity. We are creating the same kind of “diversity” that is currently the case in Syria.

          “It’s time we as country grew up. seriously.” Agree 100%, but sadly, I just don’t see it happening.

          • Normandie Kent

            So you dont like the term native american, now your complaining about indiginous? YOU need to look up the word in the dictionary When you have been in a place so long, that you evolve your own genetic subclades, haplotypes , phenotypes that are purely Amerindian, when your people have been here so long , you have over 500 different languages and thousands of dialects, when a group of people have lived in place for tens of thousands of years, that would make you indigenous or Native. The descendants of the european immigrants dont get to say at this time, that i ” It hurts my feelings that The NAs are called that, because now after a few hundred years ,of living on these shores, I should be called Native American. You and all euro americans are Naturalised Americans and not Native. So get over yourselves! White Americans whine over the most pathetic issues. As long as there are still Native Americans, the real ones , you will always be insecure about who you are as americans., thats all you are is american. Not Native to anywhere but Europe Or wherever it is you came from. Native Americans are not going anywhere, so get use to it.

        This is old and very stupid news. I am proud that my grandfather, who taught at Yale, and was a highly thought of enough chemist, to be listed in “Who’s Who in America” for his accomplishments in his chosen field, was an immigrant. He was a much better American than Ann Coulter will ever be and certainly contributed much more that was good for this country than she ever will. She is desperate to find a way where she can say she is better than someone.

        • SarahPalin2

          It’s a myth the America is the greatest country in the world. The entire system is based on power, greed and money(for the very few). 90% of “Americans don’t own a passport and can not locate a Iraq, Afganistan, Korea, Vietnam, Germany and many others on the map. Yet, they invaded these countries and killed millions of civilians. Now they want to bomb Iran. Everything is politicized: The courts, the prosecutors , judges, the supreme court, you name it. Even the most petty crimes carry long term sentences where as in Europe the result would be just a small fine if anything. There is zero tolerance and no second chance. Once you are born, you are a number in a data base which grows as you get older. Pretty soon you begin to borrow and work two jobs to pay off your never ending depts. You never own your own home because you borrow way to much from the banks. Virtually all Americans have no savings, just credit card debts. The American dream has always been an illusion.

          It’s not as bad as you describe. Honestly, I like Coulter. I find her very entertaining even more than Trump.

      • Harry Heller

        Ann Coulter, you are EXACTLY CORRECT! Good for you for speaking truth to PC-Power! AMERICA is the nation created by WHITE men in 1776 (said creation ratified by the Constitution in 1787). The aboriginal peoples (“Indians”) did not create “America”; they were displaced by it (as was perfectly morally correct: they numbered a few hundred thousand on a continent capable of supporting a few hundred million, yet they did very little-to-nothing to develop the land, and thus bring it within the ambit of civilization -> it was whites who did that, and thus who morally own the nation).

        I, too, am a Native American (not an “Amerindian”). My family (ok, most of it) pre-dates the American Founding. We are the Real Americans. Unfortunately, it quickly becomes a very complex issue assessing who else so qualifies. I think the most intellectually defensible position is that anyone whose ancestors pre-dated the closing of the frontier (traditionally set at 1900) is a Real American. But certainly, anyone who was born of non-American parents is NOT a Real American; and frankly, anyone whose family did not contain American citizens in 1900 has only a questionable right to call himself a Real American.

          You sound like a quitter to me, no wonder you still live on reservations and will remain there in perpetuity.

          There would be no America without the Native Americans , you live in a fantasy world, whites were to lazy to work or build anything. Thank the slaves, cooley, and all other non white immigrants, for building up that country. You are definitely not Native American, you are a naturalised american , who is descended from immigrants, in other words, an “Anchor Baby”. Your ancestors snuck in,stole land from the true Natives, Bred like Rabbits so you wouldnt have to leave,, squated on Indigenous land, the spread out like a Zombie Virus, that infected everything you touched.. thats the truth of how this land was settled. The only place you were ever possibly native to, was europe. So if it is really that important to you, to be Native, then go back to your native homeland.

Perhaps she is trying to make a distinction and seperate herself from those so called “immigrants’ that are beneath her after all a “settler ” to her sounds more refine than an ‘immigrant” which she pictures of as poor, of color, with an accent and living in a ghetto of sorts.

      • Clark Kent

        For the benefit of Dr. Christie Michelle Poitra the actual core of Ann Coulters argument is that current immigration policy is flooding our nation with illegal immigrants that are committing crimes and consuming social services at a rate that is creating chaos and an ever increasing expense for the American taxpayer. The categorization of the person making the argument as an immigrant, settler, native American has no bearing on the validity of the argument. The core of Dr. Poitra;s argument seems to be that America is an illegitimate country having stolen it from the original occupants – a reasonable opinion but why not come right out and say that we have no right to establish let alone control our borders?
        The opinion that we should exercise control over immigration is neither nativist nor xenophobic. I have not read any suggestions by Dr. Poitra or any readers on what immigration policy should be. Look forward to those proposals.

        Human beings are wanderers…They began spreading around the globe tens of thousands of years ago. Sometimes they welcomed newcomers; sometimes they slaughtered them; sometimes they were slaughtered themselves. So-called Native Americans, whose diversity of languages makes even the heads of linguists spin, had no qualms about killing each other. The Americas were sparsely inhabited at the time the first Europeans showed up as another wave of, yes, settlers. Did they sometimes mistreat the older settlers? Was it a terrible clash of very different cultures? Yes. Are the Indian reservations today a tragic mess? Yes. So what’s the answer? Not more self-righteous nonsense from politically correct ladies with PhDs.

      • M. E. Derry

        Hello America:

        Just to show you how determined racist whites are about destroying any positive contributions to American culture and safety take a small gander at this little tid-bit:

        “The REAL ‘Lone Ranger’ Was an African American Lawman Who Lived With Native American Indians”

        The real “Lone Ranger,” it turns out, was an African American man named Bass Reeves, who the legend was based upon. Perhaps not surprisingly, many aspects of his life were written out of the story, including his ethnicity. The basics remained the same: a lawman hunting bad guys, accompanied by a Native American, riding on a white horse, and with a silver trademark.

        Historians of the American West have also, until recently, ignored the fact that this man was African American, a free black man who headed West to find himself less subject to the racist structure of the established Eastern and Southern states.

        While historians have largely overlooked Reeves, there have been a few notable works on him. Vaunda Michaux Nelson’s book, Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal, won the 2010 Coretta Scott King Award for best author. Arthur Burton released an overview of the man’s life a few years ago. Black Gun, Silver Star: The Life and Legend of Frontier Marshal Bass Reeves recounts that Reeves was born into a life of slavery in 1838. His slave-keeper brought him along as another personal servant when he went off to fight with the Confederate Army, during the Civil War.

        Reeves took the chaos that ensued during the war to escape for freedom, after beating his “master” within an inch of his life, or according to some sources, to death. Perhaps the most intriguing thing about this escape was that Reeves only beat his enslaver after the latter lost sorely at a game of cards with Reeves and “ATTACKED” him (like “Stop and Frisk/Frame, Broken Windows/ Let’s Break Some Windows/Black Lives, etc.).

        After successfully defending himself from this attack, he knew that there was no way he would be allowed to live if he stuck around.

        Reeves fled to the then Indian Territory of today’s Oklahoma and lived harmoniously among the Seminole and Creek Nations of Native American Indians.

        After the Civil War finally concluded, he married and eventually fathered ten children, making his living as a Deputy U.S. Marshall in Arkansas and the Indian Territory. If this surprises you, it should, as Reeves was the first African American to ever hold such a position.

        Burton explains that it was at this point that the Lone Ranger story comes in to play. Reeves was described as a “master of disguises”. He used these disguises to track down wanted criminals, even adopting similar ways of dressing and mannerisms to meet and fit in with the fugitives, in order to identify them.

        Reeves kept and gave out silver coins as a personal trademark of sorts, just like the Lone Ranger’s silver bullets. Of course, the recent Disney adaptation of the Lone Ranger devised a clever and meaningful explanation for the silver bullets in the classic tales. For the new Lone Ranger, the purposes was to not wantonly expend ammunition and in so doing devalue human life. But in the original series, there was never an explanation given, as this was simply something originally adapted from Reeves’ personal life and trademarking of himself. For Reeves, it had a very different meaning, he would give out the valuable coins to ingratiate himself to the people wherever he found himself working, collecting bounties. In this way, a visit from the real “Lone Ranger” meant only good fortune for the town: a criminal off the street and perhaps a lucky silver coin.

        Like the Lone Ranger, Reeves was also expert crack shot with a gun. According to legend, shooting competitions had an informal ban on allowing him to enter. Like the Lone Ranger, Reeves rode a white horse throughout almost all of his career, at one point riding a light grey one as well.

        Like the famed Lone Ranger legend Reeves had his own close friend like Tonto. Reeves’ companion was a Native American posse man and tracker who he often rode with, when he was out capturing bad guys. In all, there were close to 3000 of such criminals they apprehended, making them a legendary duo in many regions.

        The final proof that this legend of Bass Reeves directly inspired into the story of the Lone Ranger can be found in the fact that a large number of those criminals were sent to federal prison in Detroit. The Lone Ranger radio show originated and was broadcast to the public in 1933 on WXYZ in Detroit where the legend of Reeves was famous only two years earlier.

        Of course, WXYZ and the later TV and movie adaptions weren’t about to make the Lone Ranger an African American who began his career by beating a slave-keeper to death. But now you know. Spread the word and let people know the real legend of the Lone Ranger.

        http://politicalblindspot.com/the-real-lone-ranger-was-an-african-american-lawman-who-lived-with-native-american-indians.

        They did things like this simply because it did not fit their “FALSE” narrative of the murderous, animalistic, criminalized black man that they’ve used for decades to demonize blacks and poison the public opinion of the African American race which played a role in this tragedy (Thanks Faux Propaganda for all the “24 HOUR RACE BAITING” over the past 6 years).

        This was but one instance of how racist whites have “WHITE WASHED” and/or “STOLEN” the positive history and contributions African Americans have made to America cociety!!!!

Lone Ranger?? Wow, what a scoop! There is a political correctness running rampant throughout every facet of our society, designed to denigrate straight white males in particular but whites in general next. That is, any white not inculcated with self hate by the leftist, aka Democrats. It’s happening NOW, everyday and many, many ways. Your Lone Ranger story is just pathetic by comparison to the insidious disease called Political Correctness that is infesting our children’s minds, our institutions, our corporations, our governments our work places our homes.. and everything else.

      • M. E. Derry

        Helo America:

        A little tid-bit about African Americans that was never taught in public European Caucasian based schools and it is really telling how these ancient black civilizations never once tried to kill every living being in what is now called America in order to take/rule the land like the so called “RELIGIOUS WHITE EUROPEANS’ did hundreds of years later (now what race as the true savages/heathens??):

        “THE USE OF ANCIENT AFRICAN SHIPS AND BOATS TO TRADE WITH THE AMERICAS”

        “Nubian-Kushite King and Queen (circa 1000 B.C.)”

        It is believed that there was a Nubian presence in Mexico and that the West African civilizations were related to that of the Nubians, despite the distance between the two centers of Black civilization in Africa. There is no doubt that in ancient times there were commercial ties between West Africa and Egypt. In fact, about 600 B.C., Nikau, a Pharaoh of Egypt sent ships to circumnavigate Africa and later on about 450 B.C., Phoenicians did the same, landing in West Africa in the nation now called Cameroon. There they witnessed what may have been the celebration of a Kwanza-like harvest festival, where “cymbals, horns,” and other instruments as well as smoke and fire from buring fields could be seen from their ships.

        At that period in history, the West African cultures and civilizations, which were offshoots of much earlier southern Saharan cultures, were very old compared to civilizations such as Greece or Babylon. In fact, iron was being used by the ancient West Africans as early as 2600 years B.C. and was so common that there was no “bronze age” in West Africa, although bronze was used for ornaments and instruments or tools.

        A combination of Nubians and West Africans engaged in mutual trade and commerce along the coasts of West Africa could have planned many trips to and from the Americas and could have conducted a crossing about 1500 B.C. and afterwards. Massive sculptures of the heads of typical Negritic Africans were carved in the region of South Mexico where the Olmec civilization flourished. Some of these massive heads of basalt contain the cornrow hairstyle common among West African Blacks, as well as the kinky coiled hair common among at least 70 percent of all Negritic people, (the other proportion being the Dravidian Black race of India and the Black Australoids of Australia and South Asia).

        Protohistoric, prehistoric and ancient Negritic Africans were masters of the lands as well as the oceans. They were the first shipbuilders on earth and had to have used watercraft to cross from South East Asia to Australia about 60,000 years ago and from the West Africa/Sahara inland seas region to the Americas. The fact of the northern portion of Africa now known as a vast desert wasteland being a place of large lakes, rivers and fertile regions with the most ancient of civilizations is a fact that has been verified, (see African Presence in Early America, edt. Ivan Van Sertima and Runoko Rashidi, Transaction Publishers, New Bruinswick, NJ “The Principle of Polarity,” by Wayne Chandler: 1994.)

        From that region of Africa as well as East Africa, diffusions of Blacks towards the Americas as early as 30,000 B.C. are believed to have occurred based on findings in a region from Mexico to Brazil which show that American indians in the region include Negritic types (eg. Olmecs, Afro-Darienite, Black Californians, Chuarras, Garifunas and others). Much earlier journeys occurred by land sometime before 75,000 B.C. according to the Gladwin Thesis written by C.S. Gladwin. This migration occurred on the Pacific side of the Americas and was began by Africans with Affinities similar to the people of New Guinea, Tasmania, Solomon Islands and Australia. The earliest migrations of African Blacks through Asia then to the Americas seemed to have occurred exactly during the period that the Australian Aborigines and the proto-African ancestors of the Aborigines, Oceanic Negroids (Fijians, Solomon Islanders, Papua-New Guineans,and so on) and other Blacks spread throughout East Asia and the Pacific Islands about one hundred thousand years ago. The fact that these same Blacks are still among the world’s seafaring cultures and still regard the sea as sacred and as a place of sustinence is evidence of their ancient dependance on the sea for travel and exploration as well as for commerce and trade. Therefore, they would have had to build sea-worthy ships and boats to take them across the vast expanses of ocean, including the Atlantic, Indian Ocean (both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans were called the Ethiopean Sea, in the Middle Ages) and the Pacific Ocean.

        During the historic period close to the early bronze or copper using period of world history (6000 B.C. to 4000 B.C. migrations of Africans from the Mende regions of West Africa and the Sahara across the Atlantic to the Americas may have occurred. In fact, the Mende agricultural culture was well established in West Africa and the Sahara during that period. Boats still criss-crossed the Sahara, as they had been doing for over ten thousand years previously. The ancient peoples of the Sahara, as rock paintings clearly show, were using boats and may have sailed from West Africa and the Sahara to the Americas, including the Washitaw territories of the Midwestern and Southern U.S. Moreover, it is believed by the aboriginal Black people of the former Washitaw Empire who still live in the Southern U.S., that about 6000 B.C., there was a great population shift from the region of Africa and the Pacific ocean, which led to the migrations of their ancestors to the Americas to join the Blacks who had been there previously.

        As for the use of ships, ancient Negritic peoples and the original Negroid peoples of the earth may have began using boats very early in human history. Moreover, whatever boats were used did not have to be sophisticated or of huge size. In fact, the small, seaworthy “outrigger” canoe may have been spread from East Africa to the Indian Ocean and the Pacific by the earliest African migrants to Asia and the Pacific regions. Boats of papyrus, skin, sewed plank, log and hollowed logs were used by ancient Africans on their trips to various parts of the world.

        “TRADE ROUTES OF THE ANCIENT BLACKS”

        During the years of migrations of Africans to all parts of the world, those who crossed the Atlantic, Indian Ocean and Pacific also used the seas to make trips to the northern parts of Africa. They may have avoided the northern routes across the deserts at particular times of the year and sailed northward by sailing parallel to the coastslines on their way northward or southward, just as the Phoenicians, Nubians and Egyptians had done.
        Boats made of skin, logs, hollowed ttee trunk, lashed canoes and skin could have been used for trading and commerce.

        The reed boat is a common type of watercraft used in West Africa and other parts of the world, yet there were other boats and ships to add to those already mentioned above. Boats similar to those of Nubia and Egypt were being used in the Sahara just as long or even longer than they were being used in Egypt. In fact, civilization in the Sahara and Sudan existed before Egypt was settled by Blacks from the South and the Sahara.

        The vessels which crossed the Atlantic about 1500 B.C. (during the early Afro-Olmec period) were most likely the same types of ships shown in the sahara cave paintings of ships dating to about 7,000 B.C. or similar ships from Nubian rock carvings of 3000 B.C..

        Egyptologists such as Sir Flinders Petrie believed that the ancient African drawings of ships represent papyrus boats similar to the one built by the Bambara People for Thor Hayerdhal on the shores of Lake Chad. This boat made it to Barbadose, however they did not reinforce the hull with rope as the ancient Egyptians and Nubians did with their ancient ships. That lack of reinforcement made the Bambara ship weak, however another papyrus ship built by Ayamara Indians in Lake Titicaca, Bolivia was reinforced and it made it to the West Indies without difficulty.

        Naval historian Bjorn Landstrom believes that some of the curved hulls shown on rock art and pottery from the Nubian civilization (circa 3000 B.C.) point to a basic three-plank idea. The planks would have been sewn together with rope. The larer version must have had some interior framing to hold them together. The hulls of some ot these boats show the vertical extension of the bow and stern which may have been to keep them bouyant.

        These types of boats are stilll in use in one of the most unlikely places. The Djuka and Saramaka Tribes of Surinam, known also as ‘Bush Negroes,”
        build a style of ship and boat similar to that of the Ancient Egyptians and Nubians, with their bows and sterns curving upward and pointing vertically.

        This style of boat is also a common design in parts of West Africa, particularly along the Niger River where extensive river trading occurs. They are usually carved from a single tree trunk which is used as the backbone. Planks are then fitted alongside to enlarge them. In all cases, cabins are built on top of the interior out of woven mat or other strong fiberous material. These boats are usually six to eight feet across and about fifty feet long. There is evidence that one African Emperor Abubakari of Mali used these “almadias” or longboats to make a trip to the Americas during the 1300’s.(see, They Came Before Columbus, Ivan Van Sertima; Random House: 1975)

        Apart from the vessels used by the West Africans and south western Sahara Black Africans to sail across the Atlantic to the Americas, Nubians, Kushites, Egyptians and Ethiopians were known traders in the Mediterranean. The Canaanites, the Negroid inhabitants of the Levant who later became the Phoenicians also were master seafarers. This has caused some to speculate that the heads of the Afro-Olmecs represent the heads of servants of the Phoenicians, yet no dominant people would build such massive and collosol monuments to their servants and not to themselves.

        “ANTHROPOLOGISTS BELIEVE THERE WAS AN ANCIENT BLACK PRESENCE IN THE AMERICAS”

        During the International Congress of American Anthropologists held in Bacelona, Spain in 1964, a French anthropologist pointed out that all that was missing to prove a definite presence of Negritic Blacks in the Americas before Columbus was Negroid skeletons to add to the already found Negroid featured terracottas. Later on February of 1975 skeletons of Negroid people dating to the 1200’s were found at a precolumbian grave in the Virgin Islands. Andrei Wierzinski, the Polish crainologist also concluded based on the study of skeletons found in Mexico, that a good portion of the skulls were that of Negritic Blacks,

        Based on the many finds for a Black African Negroid presence in ancient Mexico, some of the most enthusiastic proponents of a pre-columbian Black African presence in Mexico are Mexican professionals. They conclude that Africans must have established early important trading centers on the coasts along Vera Cuz, from which Middle America’s first civiliztion grew.

        In retrospect, ancient Africans did visit the Americas from as early as about 100,000 B.C. where they stayed for tens of thousands of years. By 30,000 B.C., to about 15,000 B.C., a massive migration from the Sahara towards the Indian Ocean and the Pacific in the East occurred from the Sahara. Blacks also migrated Westward across the Atlantic Ocean towards the Americas during that period until the very eve of Columbus’ first journey to the Americas.

        Trade, commerce and exploration as well as the search for new lands when the Sahara began to dry up later in history was the catalyst that drove the West Africans towards the Atlantic and into the Americas.

        Now I know why this part of Black American History is never taught in public schools!!!!!!!

          First of all, this is pseudo-science on par with faked moon landings and aliens building the Pyramids. Second of all, “it is really telling” that you have to go back to a made-up race/culture of Africans from 2500 years ago to claim a time when Africans were a world leader in anything positive. And “it is really telling” that you point proudly to this made up race/culture of Africans to find evidence that Africans aren’t exceedingly violent. In the real, present world, African-American males commit homicide at 9 times the rate of white males. In the real, present world Africa is a violence-wracked, poverty-stricken cesspool on the verge of another genocide in Rwanda, with Boko Haram committing atrocities unspeakable on any other continent but only marginally worse than standard for Africa, with the likes of Idi Amin and Robert Mugabe ruling countries. You’re sad, like a little boy who can’t face the reality that his father abandoned him so concocts a tale of him being away fighting bad guys.

          Mexican academics are the last people promoting this garbage! This is their heritage too, why would they promote cultural appropriation by a bunch of Afro-Nazis theives.I just love the hypocrisy you spew, when you Accuse European Whites of trying to steal Black African culture and White Wash it, when in the next breath you do the same to Native Americans and other people of color who are not black Negroids, that’s is the epitome of a hypocrite. You say,, that Africans have been in America for 100,000 years? In that case, where are all the artifacts and remains of all your African ancestors that would no doubt be abundant all over both continents? If there were Africans in America before 500 yrs ago, Native Americans DNA would be Indistinguishable from African DNA, but its not identical, the Native Americans would have also been immune to European and African diseases if they would have been trading with Africans up to the time of European and African Contact with them 500 yrs ago. In fact Native American DNA is the furthest away from African DNA as you can get from it on the phylogenetic tree, Europeans are more closely related genetically to Africans than the Aussie Aboriginals, Melanesian Adamanese islanders, the negrito tribes in the Pacific and then the Native Americans, the furthest from the Africans.There is no DNA, Plants, livestock, artifacts anywhere in the Americas, but plenty of Native American DNA, and Artifacts all over the Americas. There were no Africans or Europeans in the Americas untill about 500 years ago, except the Vikings who had a small settlement for a few years in New Foundland, 1000 yrs ago. But that’s it!

        • Normandie Kent

          Why are you posting works of old scientific claptrap from the 50s and 60s when sciences has moved on from those ancient theories? All ancient remains have been DNA tested, and even though the paleoamerican Skull shapes are dolichocephalic, it has been genetically proven that modern Native Americans show continuity from their paleoamerican ancestors with their different skull shapes, if your going to be quoting science and scientists, you need to keep up with the latest scientific findings regarding NAs and their ancestors. DNA has proven those early scietists wrong, or are you going to cling to those early findings like a security blanket, because it makes you and your kind feel good about yourself? You are deluding yourself into thinking you are a native American, while disrespecting real Native Americans who have had enough stolen from them already, while you and your ilk, are trying to steal and appropriate their very souls and identities. take a DNA test and find out where your ancestors really came from, which would likely be Sub-Saharan west African and Southern, Northern, Eastern and Western Europe. A typical American Mullato Yank!

        Settlers were people who came to this new world before it was America. You had some who came to the eastern shores and settled in settlements (colonies) and also people who came across the straights between what is today Alaska and Russia. Also they came from islands in the Pacific and settled in the north and the west. These became known as tribes who went by many names and traveled from area to area as the need for food was a relevant factor. The tribes and the settlers were explorers of sorts and there were wars over who “owned” what, the more civilized ended up winning the day. Fast forward a few hundred years and today we are the most advanced nation in the world, like it or not. This is the only nation in the world that fought a civil war to end slavery, many still can’t get over that situation.
        Our biggest problem today is , our educational system is in the toilet, our politicians are all on the take from the top down and so many people think the piggy bank is never going to go broke, wake up idiot we are basically bankrupt. Not to worry a solution to that problem is coming it is called a “religious war” and most of the clowns in this country with there hands out for a free lunch don’t see it coming. Soon you won’t have time to cry the blues, only worry you will have will be how do you stay alive. Where are you going to run to next ?????????????????????????

        She is a native mental nut.

          She is brilliant and brave. Viva Ann Coulter!

      • Charles McMillion

        She is correct:

        na·tive

        ˈnādiv/

        noun

        1.

        a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

      • FilthySwit

        The “We were here first” argument means that white Americans own the Moon.

      • FilthySwit

        I’m of European decent born in the US. So I’m a native American.

        • Jim P

          No you are an American

          • FilthySwit

            So there must not be a such thing as a Native American since they came here from somewhere else.

            • Jim P

              With the historians life began on this planet in the middle east/ northern Africa. Now there may be other ideas but migration can and has been traced from these areas along with Asia and Europe. Where did the tribes come from in the new world, they didn’t just appear or migrate from other populated lands. Remember in the far north one can travel across the straights without the need for ships, walking and exploring never ends.

        • Normandie Kent

          No you are Natural born American, so you are just American. The Only Natives are the Native American Indians.

      • tuffee

        What did the native american,s say when they first saw the mayflower? We need to build a WALL

      • Dave Giff

        Well, the joke is on her. There ARE no “native americans”. NO ONE is native to North America. No one. Everyone who ever came to this continent came here from someplace else. Sorry, libs, but you’ve been sold a bill of goods…KOOLAID.

        • Charles McMillion

          Incorrect. But thanks for playing:

          na·tive

          ˈnādiv/

          noun

          1.

          a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

          • rayinatl

            Is that all you have? Enough already! You have posted this many times. I am sure hey have read this already. Plus that is a matter of opinion. Definitions change all the time with changes in life. How do you know what the “original” definition was back then? So do not hold that definition to truth from many, many, many, many years ago. Their definition was most likely different than what the white man changed it to.

            • Charles McMillion

              > How do you know what the “original” definition was back then?

              I know because I can READ:

              From Dictionary of the English language by Samuel Johnson (1768, 3rd edition) & 1792 edition: A Dictionary of The English Language in which the Words are deduced from their Originals, explained in their Different Meanings.

              “Native: Conferred by birth. Pertaining to the time or place of birth”.

              Again, thanks for playing.

      • Chilibreath

        Does it really matter who was here first? The important thing is who has the control now, who pulls the strings and who makes the rules. Right now at home it’s my wife, but a rebel overthrow is in the works. Stay tuned because the outcome could be ugly. Just saying.

        • ElmerJFudd

          You do know that there will be an unconditional surrender, right??

      • rayinatl

        As I see it, unless you are a Native American Indian then you are an immigrant. I have traced my history and one side of my family comes from the Native American Indians and the other side is French. Here is my proof. http://delisle.passchristian.net/. If you look my last name is Necaise which was changed but the original spelling was Nicaise. Jean Baptiste Nicaise is the first of my family members to come over in 1794 and yes he was French. Later on the Nicaise married a Native American Indian in which my family became. Yes, I still have immigrants in my family so just because we are born here does not mean that our ancestors originated here. Unless you are full blooded Indian then we are all immigrants. There is no difference between immigrant and settler. Quit twisting the origins of United States around. Some people are trying to justify their prejudice and racist views.

        • Dave Giff

          No. There are no “native americans”. The ones you like to give that label to came to North America from someplace else, too. They were interlopers, just like the Europeans.

          Don’t like it? Too bad. The truth is a stubborn thing and there’s nothing that liberals hate more. GO LIBS!

          • rayinatl

            Dave, the Indians were the first on this land. Read the history books. The were killed and moved many times because the white man wanted their land. They may have came from some other place but they were the first here. Don’t like it then too bad for you. Again look it up. The truth is well documented.

            • Harry Heller

              Wrong, they repeatedly attacked innocent white colonists, and thus were eventually counter-attacked, defeated, and displaced. Thank God for that!

          • Charles McMillion

            You are the one who needs a lesson in truth:

            na·tive

            ˈnādiv/

            noun

            1.

            a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

            • rayinatl

              That may be the definition; however, the truth is that nobody can sit here and say that immigrants should not be allowed here like dumb a$$ Ann Coulter. She is has no right to sit there and say her family is settlers when in fact that means immigrants.

              • Charles McMillion

                Coulter may be a lot of things (I’m no fan), but dumb is not one of them.

                • rayinatl

                  That is a matter of opinion. Maybe I should say that her ignorance sure does come out a lot. By no means am I a fan of hers. I wished she would go some place and superglue her mouth shut.

                  • Charles McMillion

                    > I wished she would go some place and superglue her mouth shut.

                    That’s her forte – she gets ratings by getting a rise out of people who don’t like her. She will go away when enough people start ignoring her.

                    • rayinatl

                      Trust me, when ever I hear she is on a show, I make sure I do not watch it. She is too far out there for me. I totally disagree with her on all things she says.

                      • ElmerJFudd

                        So you’ve just admitted that you actually have not heard a word that she says. I’m not surprised. You should actually watch unedited tapes of what she says. It’s usually different then what is being reported. But you don’t care do you.

        • rioderek

          Blacks are the original Americans. It’s a proven fact. The so-called native was a minority even when Columbus arrived. It was long believed for a long time that the Amerindians met by the Europeans in the 15th century in the Americas were the first inhabitants of the New World and that 12,000 years ago, three waves of Proto-Mongoloid migratory people crossed the Behring area to the Americas.

          But new and not so new discoveries revealed that the first inhabitants of America belonged to the Negroid type (Blacks).

          Now, you do not have to think they were of the African type. They belonged to a racial group called Black Asians. This was the first human group to have moved out of Africa perhaps 60,000 years ago. The 40,000 years old European Cro-Magnon could have been of this type.

          12,000 years ago, Black Asians were the main inhabitants of India, Indochina, Indonesia, New Guinea, Melanesia and perhaps even eastern China (or the whole eastern Asia).
          The oldest human remain found in the Americas belong to Luzia a young black girl from brazil. Luzia and people like her were in the Americas thousands of years before Mongoloids.

          • Charles McMillion

            Yeah, and Jesus was black, too. Now, where’s the Face-palm emoticon?

            Sorry but never heard that story in history books. Not sure where that came from but I just took 4 courses in History/US Government in college and never read a story of this sort.

          • Harry Heller

            No the better paleoanthropological story is that the earliest inhabitants of the New World were Caucasoids, later exterminated by Mongoloid invaders (as is happening again today, thanks to the pathological altruism (aka “liberalism”) of whites).

        • Harry Heller

          Wrong. Even the “Indians” are immigrants, by your idiotic definition. They did not evolve in the Western Hemisphere. Those of us whose families pre-dated the Founding are not “immigrants”. There must be a nation to immigrate to. There was no “America” before the coming of the white race.

          • rayinatl

            Harry, Read your history again. The Indians were here before the white race so if that is the case then white race is immigrants. The people from other countries left because they wanted freedom of religion so therefore they ARE immigrants. If you take your head out of the sand then you will understand how it all started. You must belong to the KKK because all you can see is that the white race is superior and everything started with the white race.

      • jim

        got to ask at what point do a people become “native”? the indians werent always here either. how long exactly? you guys have a number or what, 200 years? 500? 1000?

        • drightone

          Wow, more like 20-30,000 years ago. Depending on the theory, they mostly came from Asia. but there are more theories springing up that there were more ancient civilizations pre-dating who we know as “Indians”.

          • FilthySwit

            The question still stands.

            • drightone

              make it until you can’t remember when you came over, then you’re native.

        Here we go with this old bigot saying, if you are 1% having minority blood then you are a minority. Please give me a break, The native Indian was here before a white man put his toe on north America soil. We already get the history books stating that Columbus discovery America but the Viking was here first and they came After the native Indians. The whites will never give up trying to steal someone else birth right. Give me a break with your Xenophobia concepts!!!

        I too don’t feel like I am an immigrant/ My 9th great grandfather is Miles Standish so my family has been in the US since 1620. From that family there are many many people none of which were or are immigrants The are native of this land just not Indians.We were all born in this country. It is ours by our birth right. Period

        • Steven Rowe

          native American family before 1776 -1789,, That was first and only nation on these lands,,WHY because ”Nation” don’t matter how you say it IT a white man word,, Indians NEVER called there tribes a ”Nation”

        • rayinatl

          Just because your 9th great grandfather has been in the US since 1620 still does not make you a native. Go back further and see which country they came from on a boat. That will make you an immigrant. Native Indians were the first on this land and the white man killed many of them to take the land. They are the true natives of this country.

          • FilthySwit

      • Dean Iversen

        she’s right, she is a native american settler, not to be confused with a native american Indian, being a native american Indian I know genuine native american Indians DO NOT like the moniker native Americans, they prefer to simply be called “injuns” or “redskins” however preferably the name of their tribe, if they are “White Earth Indians” then that’s what they prefer, not “Chippewa” however when you ask what “race” of Indian or “what race” are White Earth Injuns then you will get the proper response

        even tho Injuns are very very humorous its typically between themselves so they are straight to the point logic based carbon units, once they get to know you its on however, jokes, pranks, all sorts of stuff they are very very social “breeds” thres a good one, call an Injun a “breed” WHOA… it could get hairy and you may find yourself with your head poking out the sand… lol

        nah man she’s 110% right, she is a native american as she was born here and so were here ancestors down to her great great grandfather, HOWEVER, her entire LINEAGE is NOT Native to America, meaning at some point the chain is broken and can be traced off continent unlike Indians where their ENTIRE lineage up and down can only be traced to this land called meirca’

        I see why she wants to make this point as there are SO MANY people in this country who cannot even trace their parents back to this country so why are we focusing ALL our resources and efforts on them and not our own?

        must be same leadership wants to water down america and make her WEAK… yup, that’s how the mooslums want to destroy meirca’ and they already admitted it, they want ot destroy it using our own greed from the inside out, they KNOW the greedy corporations would LOBBY and ELECT based on very very cheap labor while at the same time bolstering crime and financial strain on her..

        in a normal perfect world lobama would be where he belongs, in the middle east doing what they do best, kissing the sand and blowing up their own people.. if you can’t see where his allegiances lie then DO NOT VOTE, tear up your voters card!

        I Live in Abq, NM and every April when I get a chance I go to the “Gathering of Nations” held here every April. U see every American Tribe of the Americas. And to be truthful I do see some “white” people that have the Native American heritage in their facial characteristics. I even see it in some Blacks, as well as many Latinos. The “Gathering of Nations” is from every tribe of the Americas, or Indigenous peoples of the Americas, I have seen tribes of Greenland, Aleutian islands, Mexican, Brazilian, Argentina..but I have failed to see how Ann Coulter looks like one of these Indigenous peoples…maybe in her dreams or another life. In my view the woman is plain and outright evil. If anything she is a descendant of some native SS trooper of Germany, that found asylum in the US

        • Laurie

          she is no Native and she looks German to me too.

            NO!

      • Mrgreat

        must be getting ready to promote another one of her idiotic books to the rubes

      • Alec Theora

        Well, sorry folks, she’s more right than wrong. It’s time to acknowledge that just because a tribe occupied a certain parcel of land that they owned it and anyone coming after that was an invader. After all, the tribes themselves only got to occupy a land after they took it from the previous occupiers by force, coercion or other means. There were NO formal forms of ownership in the America’s except those protected by force. There were NO immigration policies to break or adhere to.. none! The people who wandered into the American continents (Indians) came from the continent of Asia. Thousands of years before the Indians came though, there were Paleolithic migrations coming here from the continent of Europe. Thus the original Native Americans from Europe were either assimilated or killed by the large numbers of migrating Asians. Evidence that it was likely the former has been found in the DNA of skeletons of North American Native American people. By that standard alone, that one all claim, to be the sole criterion to “ownership” of North America in particular, the Europeans have as much right to be here as anybody who’s ancestors originated in Asia. The land was open to anyone who wanders in and made de facto claim to it by occupation of it, as had done so many times before, by force or by inundation. Territories in the Americas changed hands many times in Pre Colombian times. The European settlers had just as much “right” to this process as any that came before them.
        Most of the rest of the world by the time of the settlers had established states and borders and international laws so-to-speak. Not that they too weren’t ignored and violated regularly as well, like the Ottoman Empire’s occupation and wars of conquest as well as the Mongols and other’s before them. It’s an old story in the humans history.
        NOW, we are supposed be a civilized peoples in this world. Now there are international laws and borders and protections and rules to cover the migrations of people from one country to another. These established internationally recognized sovereign borders and these laws are to be followed or ignored. Civilized people follow them and the lawless and anarchists advocate to ignore them.
        That’s a reality check for those that want the USA to be inundated with illegal migrants who break our laws and ignore our sovereignty and our rights to protect our borders and our citizens.
        That includes Obama and the Democrats and their “sanctuary” cities and states and all who keep using the bankrupt mantra that European settlers were invaders, so to support another bankrupt point, that their descendants are now not worthy of protection under or nation’s and international laws.
        Ann Coulter is making a valid point that either you’re too stupid to grasp, or are unwilling to accept because it is a truth that will expose your own arguments failings.

        • Gary Pierron

          In your first sentence you say, “She is more than wrong.” In your last sentence you say, “Ann Coulter is making a valid point.” ???????? (Say, did you attend the Ben Carson school of journalism?)

          That all may be true except the immigrants didn’t show and peaceful settle .. the raped, murdered and stole the land the Native Americans already occupied. And then decided we owned it, took it over. Although they may have had a ‘right’ to do so … I don’t see how you can claim it to ‘ok’

          • Alec Theora

            Well your one sentence synopsis of the evolution of the relations between the settlers and the people here at the time, is completely oversimplified and one sided. The settlers at least at first may have been the victims of slaughter, rape and capture. The people throughout history who had the upper hand in long term conflict were usually those with the highest form of technology and war technology in particular. Many Indians were part of the wars raged against rival tribes and used the settlers to aid them as well. It took hundreds of years with cooperation and conflict, alliances and broken peace treaties to explain the relationship between the Indians and the settlers.

            Attila and the Huns who literally built nothing, but destroyed everything and occupied all in their path, not with advance technology but massed legions of experienced trained warriors was another way one people would conquer another in the past.
            And a slight correction, the settlers were no “immigrants” as you’ve stated, as I said before, there was no immigration as there was no country to immigrate to or any immigration policy.

            Today we have the opposite effect happening as compared to the settling of America and the building of this nation by those settlers. Whereby a mass of people are now migrating against a nation’s immigration policy, and technology isn’t even germane, just occupation by mass movement of people and larger breeding numbers by that people. They somehow feel it’s” payback” and expect that to be a justification I guess. I see a lot of anti-Anglo in it’s roots (which is more like anti-European descendent). They are breaking laws, and that lawlessness is not being enforced, for politically corrected reasons, which is another huge can of worms, and a huge difference in opposing ideologies, best left to another conversation.

            • Kim Wagner

              This is YOUR OPINION based on historical content (to a point) and it doesn’t make it right. MY OPINION is the earth belongs to no one. And mincing words/titles such as immigration or immigrants doesn’t work for me. Clearly we have a problem with populations and the immigration policy however the system WANTS this. The powers that be figured out long before you or I did that by catering to a new population of ‘Americans’ will give them the upper hand they want to regain control. No matter what any one of the policy makers say, the end goal is Socialism/Communism. Not sure why I say that.. read this http://www.whale.to/b/allen_b1.html and get back to me. We are all being fooled and this mindless arguing of titles, rights and who was here first is smoke and mirrors … a distraction.. removing us further from where we need to be UNITED.

          Native American Indians DID NOT STEAL AMERICA FROM ANYONE

          they were the FIRST peoples here regardless of what your scientists say, they “think” they know but just like yourself that data is based on hyperbole and rhetoric and a complete lack of common sense

          good grief you make no sense, THINK MAN THINK!!!

          if there are NO “true” natives meaning if there were no species that EVOLVED right here in America then if peoples came down from Alaska as the crystal ball waivers claim then NO ONE WAS HERE WHEN THEY GOT HERE SO THEY TOOK IT FROM NO ONE!!!!!

          uughhhgggg, typical american voter

          just STOP, burn your voters card PLEASE

          • Alec Theora

            Mr. Dean.. you appear to be as thick as a brick. Please learn the practice of critical thinking. You seem to let your “feelings” supersede your intellect. You can’t see the forest for the trees. You miss the point. Maybe you just like to argue.
            Do you support the mass migration into America of illegal immigrants, who will not assimilate, who will breed profusely, who will be dependent on government handouts, who will vote as a block for big government and a nanny state (Democrat Party), and demand a transformation of our current culture into their culture?
            Can you answer that yes or no? I can. I am against that with everything that I am.
            What about you?

          • disqus_PgdLd0QQyA

            Natvs came at different times from different areas of the world. Not all came from Western and small portion of Eastern Europe. Some were violent make war kinda people, and others more peaceful. Like Mohawks once tried to kick the Penobscots butts and take their fishing and hunting lands, but did not quite get it. Some of the Elders spoke of the great white tribes as well (not like the powdered / pale faces of the English aristocracy), which left before the great floods.
            My people are of non blood sacrifice or blood worhipers, we are differnt colors in skin only, most of the world has been blood worshippers for a long time. Blood worshippers have tried to wipe us out since the beginning, but we are still here. Our Father the creator has made it so, and our mother our womb (Earth) cries out with the blood you spill and worship. Our mother can only take so much, and the time is running short.

          DON’T FORGET–SOME LARGER OF TRIBES ARE FROM CANADA —after– 19 million was living here..WHY sitting Bull try return there tribe back in 1880’s was later kick out by Canadian Gov’t

      • Y2K

        BTW, where did the original, so called Native Americans i.e. Indians, originally come from?

        Wouldn’t they actually have been “Native” to there and then immigrants/settlers here?

      • oplease19

        This is not a defense of Ann Coulter, because Ann Coulter is an idiot. But so are most liberals.
        Liberals dismiss charges that they hate America, but when they insist on things like the “painful history of colonization” and “the atrocities that were committed against Native people”, it’s hard to conclude anything else. They have been brainwashed into thinking America was a Garden of Eden inhabited by peace-loving innocents. The reality is that the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas built huge empires through war, murder, rape, and enslavement. Reports of Natives butchering some of the first Spanish women and children to arrive and eating them were dismissed by liberals as racist lies, but recent archaeological evidence shows those reports to be true. The Aztecs also committed human sacrifice on a staggering scale, killing person after person atop a temple and throwing the bodies down the side until a thousand had been killed in a couple of days and thrilled crowds watched.

        In North America, Basques and others had been fishing the waters for hundreds of years before Columbus. Native Americans routinely butchered shipwreck survivors. Native Americans would kill fishermen seeking to use a small strip of land to salt their cod before sailing back to Europe. When Native Americans chose to help the Pilgrims they first debated whether to kill them. The Pilgrims were 100 hungry people, half of them women and children. It’s hard to reconcile the beatification of Native Americans by liberals with them debating whether or not to commit mass murder. When the Native Americans decided not to commit mass murder, it wasn’t because they thought it morally wrong. It was because they wanted the Pilgrims as allies in their wars with neighboring tribes. Far from peace-loving innocents, most tribes were at war with other tribes. Rape was routinely used as a weapon of war by Native Americans. Prisoners were often either horrifically tortured or used as slaves. Europeans did nothing to Native Americans that Native Americans hadn’t done to other Native Americans and that Native Americans wouldn’t have done to Europeans if they could have. And you can look to the isolated tribes of Papau New Guinea discovered in the 1940s to conclude that aboriginal culture was a dead end – in the 1940s these tribes, like the Native Americans of the 1600s, still didn’t have basics like a written language or the wheel or metalworking. And they engaged in constant warfare. Europeans came here and built a great country.

        • Ixnay66

          So your argument is Indians were mean so it was OK for us to come and kill them and their families and take their land. Got it.

          • oplease19

            You’re too dumb to bother replying to.

          • Dean Iversen

            absolutely, Indians were mean to people who were trying to slaughter them and steal everything they had..

            typical american nonsense, I mean c’mon if the combined intelligence was larger than that of their hat size they wouldn’t be int he position they are in now, lobama wouldn’t have even made it as a senator

            do you guys NOT realize barry santoros didn’t change his name until AFTER he was elected senator of the US?

            its ignorance and blind pride that will be the demise of the american people, if these people were as intelligent as they claim then they would know……………..

            A. mooslums NEVER change their name to a mooslum name UNLESS they are denouncing the OLD NAME and EMBRACING the mooslum religion,
            B. here’s a guy who is elected senator and THEN denounces the Americans and embraces the mooslum brotherhood by changing his name, remember cashes clay?

            he spit int he face of the very freedom we have been fighting to retain for the last 400 years!

        Were your ancestors the FIRST settlers, Ann? Were they actually on the Mayflower, the Nina or the Santa Maria? Then you’re not a REAL American, either. Even if they were, it’s clear the “native Americans” settled here much earlier than that, and of course there’s always Leif Erikson and his crowd.

        Let’s get real. You’re here because your ancestors came here, relatively recently. Period.

        • Donald Wilson

          Are “REAL” Americans the ones who came across the Bering Strait, into Alaska?

      • Pao Vang

        Without exception every white person I have ever met has claimed to be part Native American. I really don’t understand the psychology. White guilt? Its just bizarre and the actual Natives I know don’t appreciate it at all. They call it being a culture vulture.

        • l2a3

          Must be the crowd you run with. No one in my travels, except people who have documentation claim it, My family in America starts in 1635 with one 18 year old free English man.

        • Donald Wilson

          Think about it, who was here when the white man arrived? Whitey even mingled w/ slaves, & a lot of today’s blacks are shocked to find this out. Going back further in time & following the evolutionary trail helps to understand the mentality

          • Pao Vang

            There aren’t enough Cherokee on the planet to support every paternity suit whites have claimed against the tribe. That’s not even mentioning the other tribes.

        • Kim Wagner

          I have never claimed that… so now you can stop making general accusations.

          • Pao Vang

            It isn’t a general accusation if every white person I’ve ever met has claimed it. As for you, I haven’t met you. You might be a Bolivian. All you are is a picture on the Net.

      • Dan Beall

        The Indians were commenting atrocities against each other and wiping each other out long before whites created America. The whites had no choice to defend themselves against the constant attacks of the savage Indians. Whites are native Americans because we are the original Americans. There was no such thing as an American before we arrived, we are the Original-Americans.

        • Laurie

          Are you out of your mind we came to them they did not come to us they were defending what they already had for thousands of years before we came and killed them they are the original American we are squatters and killers lets get that straight we are immigrants we have homes we came from they don’t this is their home now quit lying to yourself

          • oplease19

            The Native Americans engaged in constant warfare with each other. They tortured prisoners, they used rape as a weapon of war. They murdered innocent sailors who washed up on shore after surviving shipwrecks. YOU are the one who is out of your mind, believing some childhood notion of peace-loving innocent Native Americans living in a veritable Garden of Eden. Nothing could be further from the truth. If they could have killed every white man, woman, and child they would have.

            • Laurie

              Of course they would have killed us we were their enemy we took their land don’t you get it I have no childhood fantasy of anything but people fight among themselves that is what they do it was still their land what don’t you understand about that ? look what we did to them and they knew we were their enemy what were they supposed to do invite us in Smoke the chanumpa (Pipe) and share there buffalo with us while we took there land from them I don’t think so..
              They fought to the bitter end to keep there land and we would too if they invaded us..

              • oplease19

                It wasn’t “their” land. Whatever land a tribe was on when settlers arrived, that tribe had gotten by defeating another tribe. That tribe’s claim is no more legitimate than the white people who then defeated that tribe. And the Native Americans were killing white people before any land-taking. They murdered shipwrecked fishermen for hundreds of years. You’re the nutcase who said ‘we are killers and squatters’. We are no more killers and squatters than the so-called Native Americans were. We had an advanced culture, they had a primitive one (still no written language or wheel thousands of years later!)

                • Laurie

                  So once again who was here first?

        • Laurie

          And why were they attacking us Dan were they here first?

        • BackspinBubba

          Wow! Good one, Dan! Wait, were you serious?

        • Patrizia Beck

          Dan is right, mostly. Anyone see stickers on vehicles that say “Native” (fill in the state)? Same thing. Born here in America makes you a Native. Now as far as Native Americans that are original to this land, according to science, they came from China? By way of Alaska. So they aren’t “Native” either. Unless some of you make some kind of arbitrary date and say from this day forward you’re now Native. And if the “white” settlers hadn’t arrived then Natives would still be in the Dark Ages. So how long should Columbus have stayed off the coast until these “Natives” figured out the wheel? They’re lucky whites came along. Or they’d be like Africa with fighting tribes and struggling to exist while mankind moves on without them.

          BTW Laurie, the Indians fought whites as well as each other. They made agreements with whites against other tribes. It was mutually beneficial. The Indians did not understand the European concept of land ownership and trade, hence the term “Indian giver”. Lack of understanding put them at a terrible disadvantage along with being in the Dark Ages. Not the whites fault. So no guilt here but what’s happened to the Indian Nations in America is disgraceful. Non assimilation is killing them, not whites.

      • she loves to throw bombs, this is just a new one

      • Border Tbird

        For Ms. Poitra: I can respect your educational credentials but that doesn’t assert any superiority of intelligent proclivity. Native American and Original American are not mutually inclusive. Those born in the USA or “American” are distinctly Native American, as I am. Original or Aboriginal American, those who preceded original European settlement are distinctly, exclusively Original American. Please be precise by using the two different terms as correctly necessitated. Words matter.

        I guess Ann can call herself whatever she wants…it’s a free country. But “Native American” has a very well accepted definition and it does NOT mean early European settler. Frankly, I wouldn’t waste my breath arguing with this lady anyway…she is an obvious wacko.

        • Dave

          Native American used to mean White Protestant. Amerindians were known as Indians. Liberals in the media re-appropriated that word.

          • Dante

            Christopher Columbus mistakenly called the Natives of the American continents “Indians” thinking he had landed in India.

            An Indian is a person from India until some navigation challenged idiot “re-appropriated” that word – now we’re taking it back.

          • Laurie

            They don’t refer to themselves as Indians they don’t even liked to be called that they prefer their real tribal names they are the earth people

          • blackfin66

            Dave, the person who has re-appropriated a well understood term is Ann. Clearly she was on a rant about immigrants and somebody (correctly) pointed out that she was herself a descendant of immigrants. In order to distance herself from that odious (in her sick mind anyway) term, she invented her own definition of native American to suit her own ancestry. Ask any 20 people on the street what “native American” means and they will all say the tribes who were here prior to European contact.

        • AWilliams87

          Your lack of comprehension is incredible embarrassing. She qualifies her statement by saying: “…I am not an immigrant to Cherokee Nation. I am living in America—which was created by settlers, not immigrants.”. Thus, when she says American, she’s referring to the U.S.A, which did not exist prior to the 18th century. She is correct.

          • Laurie

            That is true we named it that but it existed long before that and had people living here thousands of years before we came.

            • AWilliams87

              She is not referring to continental North America. She’s talking about a country, or nation state, called the United States of America, which is a collection of federated states. It was not created by east Indians.

              • Laurie

                And who lived in all these states before we came?

              • marsl

                @Williams she DON’T EVER KNOW what the F*k she’s talking about!!!!!

          • blackfin66

            No AW87, she is not correct. The original European settlers (mostly English) may have founded America but they did not create the nation…immigrants from Italy, Poland, Ireland, Russia, Japan, China, Vietnam, the Philippines, and a lot of other places CREATED America over a couple hundred years. Ann is nothing more than a bigot who thinks her ancestry gives her some kind of superiority. And for the record, my ancestors first arrived in the 1600s, possibly before hers. So what?

            • AWilliams87

              How in the world does what you say refute her statement? It’s as if you’re arguing a point not in line with hers.

              • blackfin66

                The issues AW87, are (1) she is trying to set herself apart from “immigrants” with her fictional definition of “native American” and (2) she asserts that it was the original settlers (ie: so-called by her as native Americans) who “built” America. I am arguing both assertions are not only wrong, but ridiculous on their face.

                • AWilliams87

                  The original settlers created the United States of America. She’s 100% correct. She isn’t wrong. Your comprehension is what’s failing. How could you argue the U.S. was not created by them? Who created the states? Russians?

                  • blackfin66

                    The original settlers (and I guess even this statement depends on where you cut off “original”) created a small country on the east coast of North America with 13 colonies/states. That is not what is today the United States of America which was built by immigrants from all over the world. How could you possibly question that?

                    • AWilliams87

                      Dude, the United States expanded. That’s what happened. It’s still the same federal republic created, originally, by those settlers with three separate branches of government and a constitution.

                      You’re intentionally conflicting nation with states (or possible even culture as it seems what you’re really trying to describe here), which are separate concepts, to cause confusion in hopes of discrediting Miss Coulters statements. Nothing she said was incorrect. Simply because more people migrated here over the years does not invalidate the claim that the United States was created by those settlers.

                      • blackfin66

                        Dude, how do you think the country expanded? It wasn’t just through the efforts of “pure” native Americans of the kind Coulter laughingly pretends to be. America may have been founded by original settlers (who were NOT native Americans by anybody’s definition except hers) but it was BUILT by immigrants. Surely you MUST see that Coulter is making up this definition as a way of separating herself from the term “immigrants” which her ancestors truly were even if they got here in 1700.

                        • AWilliams87

                          You: “America may have been founded by original settlers…”

                          Ann Coulter: “I am living in America—which was created by settlers”

                          You two are clearly on the same page, but you’re unwilling to admit it. Whether it’s because of some personal bias against her I don’t really care. You keep going on and on about America being “built by immigrants” as if that somehow has any relevance to this discussion.

                          What she said is 100% correct and even you have already accepted it.

                        • blackfin66

                          Reread the article AW87, we are NOT on the same page. Coulter has created her own definition of native American as a means to separate herself from any suggestion that her ancestors were immigrants (which they were by everybody else’s definition including mine). In her sick mind, that gives her license to rail against immigrants and say that they were not significant to this country as it grew and as it exists today which, in fact, they were. The whole point of her fiction has nothing to do with who founded the country, it has to do with her convoluted logic as to how she is a “native” and everybody who came after that was chopped liver. While I don’t know for sure and have no intention of bothering to check, I would bet a sizeable sum that many of her ancestors were dreaded Immigrants and only one line of forbearers can be traced to “original settlers”. In my case there is a line on my mother’s side that goes back to North American colonists of the 1650s….big deal! There have been plenty of great Americans whose ancestors arrived after 1789 and they built the country just as much as those who came before that magic date.

                          HER ANCESTORS WERE NOT IMMIGRANTS. Immigration is a geopolitical term defined by the UN as the movement of people from one country to the next. By definition, the original settlers were not immigrants. They did not move into any previous nation with a national boundary. They didn’t assimilate into the Iroquois league. Immigration is not migration. Migrating birds are not called immigrants. Her ancestors migrated to the continent, but they’re not immigrates to any previous country.

                          You: “…her fiction has nothing to do with who founded the country”

                          Her: “I am not living in Cherokee Nation… I am living in America—which was created by settlers”

                          You are clearly lying. Clearly lying. She is clearly and obviously talking about the founding of the country.

                          Fine AW87, I can see you intend to be an argumentative troll. I really don’t care if she wants to call herself a prehistoric American. The point of her fiction is that, in her sick mind anyway, it gives her license to demean the contributions of all of the nasty “immigrants” who are different from her. She is going to do that regardless, but I really have no intention of giving her any credence.

          She is not a Wacko because she doesn’t want our country to turn into Mexico extended by 2035 which is what will happen if we don’t stop the invasion.

                  It is not fox news he is number 1 on the polls and you should ask yourself if you really are American why are you so against him. Makes me wonder why an American would put down a guy that does want to help Americans but if you were born in Panama your not really American are you.i don’t know

                  • blackfin66

                    He is number one in GOP polls laurie…he could never be elected on a nationwide basis if he even gets that far….which I think unlikely. I have to laugh if you equate being an American to supporting a loudmouth reality star like Trump who is all talk and no plans. He is just saying what you want to hear laurie…lying to you just as well as any Washington politician when he knows full well he can’t do all of the things he is promising. And I am, in fact, an American, have always held a US passport, voted in every election since I was 21 and am also a vet…so I will just ignore your last comment rather than get mad about it.

                    @lauriePresidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said Friday that he believes anyone who wants to be president must fear God and pray daily.

                    Speaking at the National Religious Liberties Conference in Iowa, Cruz joined other GOP presidential candidates for a discussion about the persecution of Christians in the U.S. and around the world. After some very extreme, very weird comments about homosexuality, right-wing pastor Kevin Swanson introduced Cruz to the stage to ask him how important it was for candidates to submit to Jesus Christ as “the king of the President of the United States.”
                    “Any president who doesn’t begin every day on his knees isn’t fit to be commander-in-chief of this country,” responded Cruz…………. Do you want this ALIEN ZEALOT as your POTUS??????? He is BOUGHT & PAID for by the KOCH BROTHERS!!!!! P.S. your TOKEN Uncle Ben Carson keeps being CAUGHT telling LIE AFTER LIE!!!!!!!

I thought I saw a bit of a waver in Mr. Trump’s “policy” speech on board the “USS Iowa” (the hubris, really) in which he presented no policies other than to continue to vilify people and countries, and worse, charge money to attend that would go to an apparently non-existent veterans organization created to offset his hateful remarks about John McCain’s hero status (let’s see if that is investigated as intensely as Hillary’s right wing phony email scandal has been!)

                          Why is he putting Americans lives at risk by allowing cartel to come over that border ?.
                          why did he invite El Salvador to come here?..
                          He is supposed to put Americans welfare first he is causing us danger these things are acts of treason.

                          Donald Trump has avoided calling on the US to attack Iran, and instead focused on the weakness of the Obama administration in negotiations.
                          In this way, he is able to sound strong on Iran policy, while in reality, he is not nearly the most combative Republican candidate on Iran. His tone on the Iran deal is a clue that he would be more in line with maximum deterrence than action. As critics of Eisenhower pointed out “maximum deterrence is a flimsy negotiating tactic if one is not willing to follow through!!!!!!”

          • blackfin66

            laurie you listen to entirely too much faux news, and worse, apparently believe it. Immigrants, both legal and illegal, come from all over the world and have very much the same goals as your immigrant ancestors. Are there some bad actors in the crowd? Sure, always have been, and I have no problem whatsoever with deporting those people. But immigrants are and always have been the life blood of this country and what makes it great….we get the best and most motivated people who want to make a better life. Prejudice against immigrants has, unfortunately, been a fixture for hundreds of years…it was true for the Irish, Italians, Poles, Japanese. Chinese and Vietnamese to name a few. Yet, it all worked out didn’t it? The immigrants and their children and their children’s children became good Americans…just like you claim to be. So let’s stop the hate and accept these people who will be making our country a better place.

            • Laurie

                At the moment laurie I do not live in California, although I do live in the west and have lived for several years in LA and San Diego. It seems like you have an irrational fear of change which is inevitable. That unfortunately seems to be the objective of today’s divisive politics and you are buying into it. I can promise that Trump is lying to you and just saying what you want to hear…he is a snake oil salesman first class. Nearly all of what he proposes (and I am not just talking about immigration) is either illegal, politically impossible or economically not feasible. I rather doubt that he will be the GOP candidate, but if he is he has no chance in a national election…too many people think like I do that he is a buffoon and showman who is all mouth and no plan (at least not a feasible one).

                      • blackfin66

                        I think you will find that the generally accepted number is about 1/3 of that and includes people from all over the world, not just Mexico. I can absolutely guarantee you that the country does not have the resources to identify, hunt down and deport that many people who don’t especially want to be found. So logic says that there are better solutions like going after and deporting criminals and comprehensive immigration reform that brings much better control to future inflows. Personally I am not too concerned about people who are living their lives and contributing to the country.

          I’m sorry but in todays liberal definitions, if you THINK you are, then you are and you must accept it.
          Being white but THINKING you’re black. Being well off but THINKING you’re poor. It’s all what you think, not as it is. No facts are needed or to be debated. Global Warming…I mean, Climate Change is real! Just look out your widow and see that it’s different than yesterday! And tomorrow, who knows! It sucks being liberal and using your own logic against you. Oh btw, most of us don’t care what libs think. We’re too busy working to pay taxes.

              Well I’m not going to say anything nasty. My point is that facts don’t matter. If Ann thinks she’s Native, then she is. Just as if you think you’re Black, then you are. It’s only about what someone thinks and if people THINK Ann is an idiot then I guess she is, facts be damned. Don’t use facts to debate her logic or her facts, just say mean things about her.

              • blackfin66

                LOL Pat, if you look back at my original post I said: “I guess Ann can call herself whatever she wants…it’s a free country.” Her invented definition of native American is undoubtedly self serving and not the one accepted by any 20 people you randomly picked off the street, but hey, whatever.

        Why do the people who descended from the settlers—the founding stock—continue to allow the immigration of people who hate them, cuss their founding and denigrate their history? It’s madness. Can the founding stock please have some advocacy? It was just this year the founding stock became a minority. It is now mathematically impossible for them to assimilate the tens of millions of new immigrants. America, the great country that everyone all knew, loved and wanted to immigrate to, is over.

        Actually, the origins of our nation began with the Spanish and English stealing the land from the natives. My ancestor, Roger Williams fought back against this theft and bought land from the Indians. He also established the doctrine of separation of church and state, but that is another story. Mexicans and others have no more right to the land than I do to Providence, Rhode Island. Too bad the Indians were so divided (like Americans) that they were easily defeated by the Europeans. Perhaps we should all stop being so greedy and work together to make our nation work, so we are not replaced by others. Build the fence, protect our borders, insist on the assimilation of immigrants now living here, including learning English and renouncing their citizenship in other countries. Republicans are stupid wasting their energy fighting each other. The country would have much better off with Romney for President.

                We (even you) came to America after our ancestor’s settled here and took control of the lands and the original inhabitants. That’s what happens when an invader occupies a country, they take it over. The land that use to belong to others is now in the possession of the conquerors not the conquered.

                With that said, you remarked that, “she may be right but I don’t think people should build a home on someone else’s property.”

                She is absolutely right and people in that position can do what they want with the land they fought for regardless of anyone’s opinions otherwise. I don’t need advice from a Libertard regarding our country’s history or the way life works. Your bleeding heart remarks aganist our country and the way it developed speaks volumes about you and your politics.

        It would be more accurate for Ms Coulter to say “ Native Citizen” But then she would have to admit, all people born in the US, have the same status ( not her agenda ) …the term: “Native American” ascribes itself to Historical tribal heritage… something quite different than Ann’s European Clan history…

      • Gary Pierron

        I’m a democrat and Coulter is right. You cannot immigrate to a nation if no nation exists. Sure, there were some other settlers that pre-dated the arrival of Europeans. They came to this geography from Asia, across the land bridge of the Aleutian Islands. If these people had used their time developing scientific thought, mathematics and engineering they might have been able to repel the European’s. Instead they just wandered about killing buffalo and smoking tobacco. They had to follow the Buffalo and trudge around the landscape because, apparently, they were too lazy to figure out corralling the Buffalo so they didn’t have to pull up stakes and move every three months. Believe in manifest destiny or not, that’s the truth of it.

      • Jeff

        I have a question for Ann Coulter and hopefully she has the answer. The natives indigenous who were already here from the area of what is Mexico now (which extended over a great deal of land to the U.S), how did they manage to move all that land over here to “America”? So, sounds like the Mexican lands where somewhere else and they brought it here to America and hence are illegals right? I mean, did they use like a huge machine to move that land and attach it to America? Or, is it more like Europeans came to their land? I need answers Mrs. Coulter please.

        • Nonameever

          Native Mexicans at first contact had an estimated 6 million population and within 100 yrs of first contact had been reduced to well below 1 million with infanticide routine to stop the next generation from being subject to European rule. So who replaced the indigenous Mexican? The European-Arabs of Spain plus Negros brought as slaves but released in favor of coca chewing native laborers

        • lgp

          Mexican lands are in Mexico Jeff. The Spanish “European Empire” claimed parts of North America where Indians lived not the Mexicans. Therefore Mexicans don’t belong here either.

          • Jeff

            Yes Igp, I understand but what about those Mexicans who have no European blood and some are a mixed, you know, any European with natives from Mexico. They don’t belong here either?

          • Jeff

            Mexicans acquired the name “Mexican” after Spanish conquest, but how about those that are mostly native? I am a mix. Native American and Spanish. And I feel like my native side shall give me more rights than anyone else of European ancestry. Understand?

        So before any other settlers, or migrants, or wanderers or explorers came to North America, it was all – part and parcel – property of the Native Americans/Indians/Tribes/migrant hunters and gatherers from Asia???

        • Mi II Lo

          Yup! Glad you now understand! Those Asians predate any others by a few thousand years! Compared to Coulter and those who came with her “ancestors”, they are the real natives! If you deny that, then you are trying to do the same as Coulter!

          • Nonameever

            Europeans predate Asiatics by 20,000 years try try again

        • Nonameever

          20,000 years before Asiatic migration, Europeans had established populations in North America. Europeans were the first Native Americans, not Asiatics.

        Anne don’t sugar coat it. Your ancestors came from Europe. If everyone would return to where they were originally from you would be back in Europe and those you love to hate would still be here in the Americas. It’s arrogant to come to a land with an existing indigenous population and expect them to disappear, well unless you all kill them off.

        • AWilliams87

          The people living in North America (Let’s call them east Indians, a term I dislike) prior to the arrival of settlers also came from Eurasia. If everyone “return[ed] to where they originally” came from, they wouldn’t be living here as well. How far back do you want to go? How is it fair to start your scene of history from the point when east Indians had already crossed the Bering land bridge from Asia?

          Moreover, the vast majority of North America, at least, was uninhabited. How could people then claim all of North America to belong to those Indians? The original settlers didn’t settle on land belonging to anyone else. They were trying to avert famine and disease to even focus on taking land from other people.

          • Really

            Who taught them to eat corn and turkey, then, if they settled on unoccupied land?

            • AWilliams87

              Yes. The lands they originally settled on was largely uninhabited. They never went into a village or an area already occupied by other people. That does not negate the fact that there were other groups in close proximity, however.

          • Spongebob CrankyPants

            “The people living in North America (Let’s call them east Indians, a term
            I dislike) prior to the arrival of settlers also came from Eurasia.” Your source?

          • Naki

            The vast majority of Russia is uninhabited. How can those Russians claim all of that unoccupied land. It should be “discovered” and settled.

            • AWilliams87

              Russia is a single country ruled by several federated states who operate under a single federal government.

              There were no states in North America prior to the creation of the U.S. Most people lived in villages and didn’t venture very far. Also, these villages weren’t united. It’s not as if any one group could claim control over any other part of the area. These people inhabitant an area within North America, as did the original settlers.

              • Naki

                Wouldn’t the Iroquois League be considered a federal government? They had several member nations with a larger governing body.

                If there were no states, why did the “settlers” sign treaties with the tribes?

                • AWilliams87

                  States and nations are separate concepts. Nonetheless, the European settlers did not settle amongst the Iroquois nations. The Iroquois existed even after the United States was formed. Furthermore, the Iroquois did not help in the creation of the United States.

        Man, I wouldn’t be surprised if next year, Ann Coulter releases a hardcore rap album. This chick is nuts beyond belief!!

      • noBS

        Coulter’s arguments often confuse me, at least on the surface. But after I looked a bit deeper, and when I understood that when she refers to “Native Americans”, she means the descendants of the (mostly European) settlers who founded the nation under whose laws which we all currently live, and NOT the “pre-European-settler” peoples who lived here before “America” was so-named. Using Ann’s terminology, those people, the ones usually referred to as “native Americans”, might more correctly be called “native PRE-Americans”.

        Realistically, what were the native peoples called BEFORE north and south America were named (possibly in error) after Amerigo Vespucci? They certainly weren’t “Native Americans”. That name didn’t exist. So technically, Coulter is correct in her claim that the “NA” term is every bit as descriptive when applied to the descendants of the settlers, and probably more so than when it is used in its more “popular” sense.

        • Really

          Realistically, the very first settlers were Spanish and French. So she is out.

          • noBS

            Really, Really? Can you “really” not follow what I said?
            Your comment even helps to support my point about the “native pre-Europeans” (desregarding for a moment Ann’s claim to be a descendant of “settlers”).
            But to respond more specifically to your comment, yes, the “very first” settlers were Spanish and French, as you said. But they were EUROPEAN — which was the point… not who was “first”. The point (and Coulter’s) was that this country was founded by the European settlers — including the Spanish, French, Dutch, English…, and it is the descendants of those settlers whom she considered “native American”.

        I think I understand where Coulter is coming from. Immigrant, to me, implies that one is moving into an already established society…or state. Settler to me implies that one is moving into something not already established.
        We are not Native American immigrants because we did not move into their culture. Coming from the Old World and moving to New York City makes one an immigrant. Going West outside of the US boundary at that time makes one a settler. I think I get it, anyway.

      • Leon Pfanenstiel

        The Indian’s are of Mongolian decent, they migrated here as well.

        • Dante

          Using your logic, every single human is of African descent.

          So we’re all immigrants.

          I agree with that assessment.

      • Michael DeLorme

        As a 16-year resident of Alaska, I’ve found that those who were born here—no matter what their race or ethnicity—consider themselves native Alaskans. On the other hand, only those who are of Indian or Eskimo heritage consider themselves Alaskan natives.

        Following the logic of this paradigm, it seems that Coulter is right in calling herself a native American; while only those of indigenous heritage may consider themselves American natives. I don’t follow, though, her distinction between settler and immigrant. It seems to me that a settler is a particular kind of immigrant.

        • wiseoneinmilw

          StatusQrow, under no amount of rationalization or equivocation can nutty Ann Coulter be considered Native American.

          • Brandy Pastore

            Well when you go back to Africa, we’ll send her back to Europe.

          • Michael DeLorme

            Words can have more than one meaning. Classical liberalism, for example, used to mean something a whole lot closer to what conservatism is today—the emphasis, then, being on liberty. Liberalism, today, means something far closer to permissive indulgence.

            In the same way, native can mean, on the one hand “belonging by birth to a people regarded as indigenous to a certain place.” In this sense, you’re correct, Ann Coulter cannot be regarded as a native American.

            Yet, native can also simply mean “born in a particular place or country.” Though I would never go about referring to myself in daily discourse as a native American, nevertheless, in this second sense, that’s exactly what I am. So is Ms. Coulter.

          You are correct when you chose your Pseudonym “Infidel” LMAO!!!

          • Brandy Pastore

            Ahhh, must be Kool-Aid break at the nuthouse LMAO. It’s confirmed, you are certifiable. You exist on fantasy and farce.

        • tapatio

          And “infidel420” is a native of Bigot-istan.

      • How many generations must a people be in a nation in order to call themselves “native”? I know that there must be a number because the people referred to as “native Americans” were not originally from the Americas originally either so what’s the number? I was born in New Jersey and it’s okay for me to call myself a ‘native of New Jersey and New Jersey is in the United States which is on the north American continent so how come I can’t call myself a native American? I thought that the word “native” was an indicator of where you were born, am I wrong?

        I looked up the word and this is what the dictionary says…

        na·tive
        ˈnādiv/
        noun
        noun: native; plural noun: natives
        1.
        a person born in a specified place or associated with a place by birth, whether subsequently resident there or not.

        So isn’t everyone born in the United States (and Canada and Mexico for that matter) a native American?

        • Laurie

          I know what you’re saying but no there not we are native by our bloodlines where are roots are we are decent of our roots if your family is Irish than that’s what you are just because we are born here does not mean that’s what we are and people have lost the pride of who and what we are over the generations and time that is what’s wrong with the world now…

          • Laurie – My family came here through Ireland and Germany but, they originally came out of Africa many 10s of thousands of years ago… so did your family and so did everyone’s families originate out of Africa. It’s just a scientific fact that the Human species (every eventual branch of it) originated out of Africa. The cool thing about that is that it’s one area of Human history that religious and secular people agree on… we are ALL of African descent. So in reality, I’m a Native African American. Can’t you tell that from my avatar? It’s true. )

            • Laurie

              Yes that’s true and through evolution we have worked our way into the world we conquered and gained our countries and we should have stayed in them this was native land first and for-most no matter what we say it was not ok to come and genocide a whole nation of beautiful people that were not equipped to handle us, not even a fair fight..
              We were and still are greedy We killed them for what some freaking gold and religious freedom then forced it on them what we did was a horrible tragedy it will never be right, never no matter how many excuses we make.

              • Laurie – How dare you defend those people who invaded this nation that belonged to the animals that lived here and drove the woolly mammoths into extinction! The were very near wiping out the poor buffalo until we came here and put a stop to that slaughter and brought the buffalo back from the brink! When those first people came to this continent they waged war after war after war, frightening and harming the animals and the pristine lands in the process. The continued to spread their murderous rampage down into South America where they built Mayan Pyramids to slaughter each other on by the thousands!

                By the way Laurie, I don’t see “them” and “us” as two separate groups of people. I see all Human beings as the same people and so the way I see it is that WE are the native Americans, WE are the Pilgrims, WE are ISIS, WE are the Nazis, WE are the Chinese, WE are the Vietnamese, WE are light skinned, We are dark skinned, We are HUMANS and we’ve been killing each other and everything around us ever since we left the treetops and stumbled out on the Savannah.

                We are the Cowboys and we are the Indians, we are the cops and we are the robbers. Stop with this “us” and “them” crap. It’s time to stop perpetuating that nonsense.

                • Laurie

                  And so will you be voting for Hillary too

                  • Which Hillary? Are you talking about Monica’s ex-boyfriend’s abused wife?

                    • Laurie

                      Well of course hiller-hog there is only one running that wants all the illegal votes so I figured since you love the Mexicans you will be voting for her

                    • Laurie

                      I mean real true Americans want Trump so I assume you will be voting Dem and Hillary the thief liar and treason lying criminal who should be going to prison instead of the white house, Well she must be your Gal

                    • Laurie

                      yes that one the poor abused Hillary that took money from the middle east and stuck it in her bank Account yes her

                      • Laurie you got me all wrong… ☆☆☆CRUZ CONTROL 2016!☆☆☆ 🙂

                        • Laurie

                          I really like Cruz he is very smart and has already fought to stop Amnesty but was shot down by the dems but here is the problem in the end you can only have one and I don’t think Cruz will take it so why waste the vote better to fight for one and trump I think will do better on bringing us Jobs we Americans are in big trouble billions of us out of work and much of that is due to illegals taking our Jobs that’s why I want deportations to get us Jobs and Trump is the guy to do that…
                          I would love a trump/cruz ticket these two together will do great things for we Americans..
                          Vote Trump 2016

                        • If the candidates end up being whittled down to just Trump and Cruz or Carson and Cruz, Cruz will demolish both of them in a head to head debate. I can say the same even of Rubio… none of those other candidates has a prayer of besting Cruz in a one on one debate. Cruz just needs to hang tough and be one of the last two and he will win.

                        • Laurie

                          I don’t think so Ron not this time Americans are changing and disqusted we want and need real change Trump has built empires he knows how to make money and he wants to cut Taxes for the poor he has some great ideas he wants to bring back industry and big business, he wants to cut China off and bring those jobs back home to us he is right China all these countries are laughing at us their leaders think were a joke Trump wants to show them were not and let them play hardball when it comes to business he knows how to play hardball and many of these leaders know him he knows how to deal with them because he already has and I think him and Putin will get along well together we need them as allies now, not our enemy you need to really think it through I love Cruz I really do but when it comes to big business Trump is our guy.

                        • Laurie

                          And I don’t want to waste the vote.

                        • Okay so maybe it can be a CRUZ/TRUMP ticket. Waste your vote? Not, and besides after 30+ years of being a registered Independent I finally switched my party affiliation to Republican this year just so that I can vote for Cruz in the primary. (so I’ll vote for Cruz for you)

                          That’s something I’ve been banging the drums about for the past year, trying to convince other Conservatives that if they’re registered as ‘Independent’ or ‘Libertarian’ THEY are the ones who are responsible for nominating Dole, McCain & Romney by not voting in the primary at all. (I’m guilty as charged but at least I finally realized that mistake)

                          There’s just no point to being registered as an Independent or Libertarian if all it really means is that you’re volunteering to throw away any real hope of getting the candidate you want who will ALWAYS be a Republican. The worst thing in the world would be for Jeb to end up winning the nomination and remember 4 years ago… at this point it didn’t look like Romney had a snowball’s chance either.

                        • Laurie

                          Yes I understand how you feel I used to be a demo when it was ok too be because they cared about the poor but no more I am a repub now…
                          We really have to wait and see who’s standing at the end of this where it goes I mean if it’s down to Cruz and Carson well I am going for Cruz I don’t care for Carson and Rubio is for open borders no matter what he says, he is..
                          But for now I am for Trump because I want jobs back Cruz trump ticket either way would be good but as Trump says “lets make America great Again”

                        • Either way i think we’ll be in good shape… or at least that’s what I would hope.

                        • Laurie

                          yes because at this point all we have is hope

                        • Laurie

                          yes being independent has always thrown the vote away even if you like who’s running

                        • patrick

        • Naki

          How about she can claim to be native American (born here) but if she wants to call herself Native American she must show her ancestry has been in the Americas as long as the the American Indians ancestors. So minimum 9,000 years?

          • Brandy Pastore

            You’re clearly not qualified to answer the question. Stifle.

          • AWilliams87

            When she said native American, she was referring to the U.S.A, which is a collection of federated states. It did not exist until the 18th century. And in that respect, shes correct. The people living in North America 9,000 years ago never referred to it as such. The vast majority of the area was largely uninhabited anyway.

          • What nation are you a native of Naki? (born in I mean)

      • Northwoodsman

        It does not matter where my decedents came from I was born in America just like the Natives that were born here whose ancestors originally came from Asia and Siberia. When you are born to a country and continent you are a native of that country and continent.

      • Bernard Alfred Stearos

        Another reason to view the “View” as a bunch of uneducated, left wing nut liberals. Hey, Ana, Raven and Padma, native means born here, originates from here, place of birth, indigenous! That means if you are born on American soil – you are a native born American. End of story, no further discussion needed.

      • Vikings53

        I’ve always thought that calling American Indians, Native Americans is not correct. Anyone that was born here is a native american simply because they WERE born here.

          You’re correct. But political correctness trumps here.

      • shining.genji

        seems to me that Coulter didn’t claim that she is native American but instead made a distinction between the people she called “settlers” and the people she pretended to think of as “immigrants.” I assume that she means that the “settlers” and their ancestors came from Europe before our nation’s Independence, before the Treaty of Paris, in 1783.

        whatever you call them, they did found the US, as a nation, just like she said.

        anyone who came to the US after that would be an immigrant, since the US was an independent nation then, with its own borders, and their descendants would be, obviously, descended from immigrants.

        regarding her comment about the Cherokee Nation, Coulter was saying that since she’s supposedly descended from the people who founded our country, she’d only be an immigrant if she lived on a reservation, that reservations are other nations under American law, and any non-Cherokee, even a Navajo or a Sioux, who lives in the Cherokee reservation, is an immigrant — to the Cherokee nation. Even a pure bred Cherokee born in NYC or LA would be an immigrant to the Cherokee nation, just like someone born in Boston would be an Immigrant if they moved to London, even if all their ancestors came from England.

        Just like the “settlers” who came from England, or whose ancestors did, were not immigrants to 13 colonies, because those colonies were part of the British Empire, we British territory, just like Hawaii is, even though it’s not part of North America.

        as well, she was calling Native Americans “Indians,” and implying that the descendants of the people she calls “settlers” are the true native Americans.

        native means born in a particular place, as in the Manger scenes of Jesus’ birth are also called “Nativity” scenes.

        Coulter is just too clever for most people to understand her — not counting me, obviously! — especially when she is being playful like this. she was playing a semantic game to mock something that she thinks foolish, the idea that we’re a nation of immigrants.

        anyone born here is a native American. anyone born outside the US who comes here to live permanently is an immigrant, even if they never become citizens of the US.

        I’m not an immigrant and Coulter, the President, and most of us are not, because we were born here, in our nation, even though the President was born in Hawaii, which is not part of North America, but is instead in the middle of the Pacific ocean and 2500 miles from California and 5400 miles from Philadelphia, where we declared our independence, and Yorktown, in 1781, where we finally won it on on the battlefield — with a lot of help from the French, back before they turned into a nation of “cheese eating surrender monkeys,” of course, to quote a great American who also happens to be an immigrant.

        now, there’s one big problem for Coulter with that distinction regarding herself. surely some of her ancestors came from Europe or someplace else, aside from the US, after 1783, and surely that’s true of everyone, or virtually everyone, in the country, aside from pure-bred Native Americans. it’s been about ten generation since 1783, and that means a person alive today has over a thousand ancestors who were alive at that time, so that it’s highly unlikely that anyone, including Coulter, would have pure “settler” ancestry.

        but I repeat, Coulter was only being playful, I think.

        My own ancestors include native Americans, people who came here from Europe before 1783, and even, DNA shows, some Africans, who were surely brought here as slaves, although I look white and consider myself white.

        My mother’s mother, who was born on a reservation in Canada and who had native American ancestors, immigrated from Canada when she married an American of French-Canadian ancestry, which doubtless included some native-Americans, too, since the French often married native American women. and doubtless many of my father’s ancestors came from Europe or were brought from Africa after 1783.

      • Robert Hook

        Looking at my own genealogy (mostly German and Irish) I have branches that include several native American women and even one Indian man. These are my great-great and great-great-great grandparents. Parsing through old bibles our family has learned that they were Indian orphans in the mid to late 1800’s that came from reservations in Oklahoma, Kansas and South Dakota. Indians adopted by American settlers who typically have English names and not much is known about their Indian heritage.

        Not just one but our family has many Indians in our genealogy. It’s interesting because it’s not been talked about much in the past. It was just recently that it dawned upon us that we were not only decedents of American settlers but also the native Americans that lost the war with the US Army. We are not the Indians that own the casinos we are decedents of the Indians that fought back and died in war. How cool is that? For me this explains a lot.

            Coulter is spewing hate and you call that the Democrat mantra ? Last time I checked Coulter was a conservative, or she plays one on tv. Conservatives are the haters as Coulter has shown.

            • Joann

              No she’s not spewing hate; I think we all know the immigration law; if you cross the border you broke the law; you must go back to Mexico and apply to come here and wait like others have done. that’s not hate, that’s the law. If it’s hate then 3/4 of Americans feel this hate…sorry you’re wrong but democrats don’t like laws, or the truth..

      • No daddy ball 1

        Ann is correct. If you want to use their thought process we are all immigrants from the first humans in Africa. So lets put this stupid thought process to bed now. America was built on LEGAL!!! again LEGAL immigration and when our Great grand parents and grand parents came here there was no welfare or any freebies for them. What Ann is saying in 100% correct is that these illegals these days are coming to the U.S.A just to live for free off of the government and they don not deserve it!!! That system is for Americans and LEGAL immigrants.

        • Laurie

          you are what your bloodline is just because we Killed and abolished these people does not make it ours it’s like Muslims taking over Europe which they will there from the middle east that’s their true home were all just squatters of their land This is not ours never was and never will be the people who settled here took from the people of this land they did not have freebies because life was not like that then instead we killed and took from them it’s the same thing we killed their buffalo look no matter what anyone says we all know this was not our land, our land can be traced by our bloodlines and many whites are leaving here now and going back to their roots, their homeland..

        Not settlers, more like invaders. “Indigenous” is the correct term for those here before the invasion.

      • LouieLouie

        Ann is correct.

        • Laurie

          Ann is not correct settlers were immigrants too this was not their land it belonged to the Native people I believe she is English and Irish our roots is what we are by bloodline it’s in our DNA

          • LouieLouie

            so were American indians; they immigrated from asia

            • Laurie

              They really don’t know where they came from their is no real proof they are indigenous to this land it was theirs first thousands of years before we came and started their genocide.

              • LouieLouie

                genocide is a harsh word; anyway winner gets the spoils

                • Laurie

                  No it was a Genocide really do you know how many we killed ? we stripped and took everything from them it was never a fair fight taking a bow to a gun fight really come on you call that a fair fight. I don’t were losers because we did not give them a fair fight it’s easy to take a country with guns..
                  Honorable men would have fought fair.

                  • LouieLouie

                    if you can name 1 war that was fairly fought, I’ll defer to you

                    • Laurie

                      sword against sword guns against guns is a fair fight much more so than what we did there is no words that can make it right or fair to kill off a whole nation of people some people act like it wasn’t for real these were real people with “real Families”

                      • LouieLouie

                        savage indians had knives, arrows and tomahawks whereas the Europeans had guns, cannons and grenades, Europeans had technical advantage; that’s the reason we spend billions on military projects. btw, American indians were cannibals when we found them.

                        • Laurie

                          They were not savages it was their customs and traditions to live the way they did they’re the earth people everything of the earth had meaning to them they used the earth for their medicine men and they were fine with their ways they also had less sickness we brought them terrible diseases they could not cure..
                          What makes you think they needed our help they lived for thousands of years before we came if we weren’t out to slaughter these people we could have learned much from them as it is they taught us much about farming these elders such as fools crow, black Elk and many others had great visions and saw their destruction by our hands..
                          They still don’t want our religion, government, way of life their nothing like us and our phony churches they want to smoke their chanumpa -Pipe and have their sun dances we still stop them in many parts they should be able to live free the way they choose to live on their land not stuck on a res being told how to live and no buffalo because we killed them all and many other things now we walk on the graves of their ancestors like it’s nothing…

                        • LouieLouie

                          American indians are actually better off; if the Europeans never made it to the Americas what would you see if you come here today?

                        • Laurie

                          I hear what your saying Louie you’re proud to be an American I can tell, that’s good but the truth is if we had never come here it would not matter what we would see because we would be at the home of our family roots no need to be here, really think about it …
                          But what I am more mad about is what we did,, we could have come and treated them with some dignity and respect asked their permission and can we share some of their land with them been kind maybe it would have turned out different instead of genocide maybe they would of said no that’s ok too so we go home, maybe we should of shared our visions of what America could be for all of us with their leaders many earth men were very wise when they did not feel threatened maybe they would have said some can come.. We should not have broken our promises and treaties we made with them..
                          It’s no different then Europe right now the middle East is taking Europe they don’t care if they don’t want them there they feel threatened as they will lose their way of life too and be killed off…
                          Europe needs to shut their doors

                        • LouieLouie

                          if the Europeans never made it to the Americas what you would you see if you come here today are casinos, nothing but casinos LOL

                        • Laurie

                          You would see nothing because you’d never have come here and they would still be living the life they want to live but Europe has plenty of Casinos don’t worry

                        • Laurie

                          I would see beauty the way it used to be not ugly buildings and back to back traffic with massive air pollution clean rivers and Oceans instead of people burning and looting cities, we would see open plains and big beautiful mountains that were not taken down by dozers for buildings and ugly prisons..
                          You would see buffalo and wild life running free in sweet grass with wild flowers every where in the spring time instead of graffeti and trash in ally’s isn’t that a big part of why we came here because of the beauty
                          Our sea creatures would not be chocking and dying from oil spills in the water, we would see rocks of all different colors on the ground I guess those Indians kept the land pretty nice huh now look what we did to it…

                        • Laurie

                          Indians are not better off they live terrible on their res because we have taken everything that sustains their people they are prisoners of their land and ways

                        • Laurie

                          We waste too much money on technical garbage that’s whats wrong with this world every time we drill into that earth we weaken the mothers layers computers have made kids zombies families are no longer a unit like they were drugs the destruction of this world. money has become people’s god, in Sioux waken tanka great spirit our birds are dying off because were killing our trees when the big ones die they cant protect the smaller trees growing under them all things come together and our technical advantages are destroying our earth not all things the whites have created are good.

                • Laurie

                  Also think about this if we were deported we could go back to where ever we came from where would they go nowhere because this is their only home.

      • Laurie

        This is not your land Ann I like your ideas but your family were immigrants just like everyone else..
        The whites came and killed the people of these lands this is Native Country they aren’t Indians either we called them that they go by their tribe names of their people…
        We are really Native by where are people come from we are squatters here.

        • matthew kish

          my family is documented to 1600’s long before America was formed they didn’t kill any Indians and it offensive that you don’t know Indians were their own worse enemy…with the fighting between tribes.. and besides where did the “natives” come from , if civilization came from Africa??/ get a clue and come back

          • BlueDuck

            I agree. The pink Europeans came from black Africa. Boy, you pinks sure lost that tan in a hurry.

          • Laurie

            Where was your family from what are your roots it doesn’t matter when they came it’s not who your family is and yes the Spanish and whites did kill them quit making excuses this was their land first and they lived here along time before we came and they did fine without us, believe me..
            It doesn’t matter if they fought it was still their land.. the whites have to quit denying the holocaust genocide of the Natives because our for-fathers did it.

          • Laurie

            America was formed long before any immigrants came here The Natives had their own society and did not need us in the least, sorry and we had no right to invade on their lives and genocide these people make promises and break them, treaties we never kept..
            We ruined their life for some fking Gold and took their land away beautiful cultures so what if they fought all people fight it was still their land thousands of years before we came their ways was fine for them and now they don’t even have that left as many traditions went down in the grave with them it is so sad what we did to them..

      • republikan

        An absolute BIMBO !!!

      • Jeff

        Uh, I think if you were born in America, that makes you a NATIVE AMERICAN!!! Not a native African- American or a native Irish – American. A NATIVE AMERICAN!!! Now how hard is that to understand?

        • Gauss✓

          “Native American” is a defined term; and it means “A member of any of the indigenous peoples of the Americas”.

          You can’t just make up your own meanings to words.

          • william wilson

            How many generations does it take to become indigenous? We all, and that includes the native americans, came from africa.

            • Gauss✓

              “Indigenous” is a well defined term as well. I’m not here to educate you on your ignorance.

              • william wilson

                Nice way to avoid the question. The native americans were immigrants at one time.

                • Gauss✓

                  You’re arguing against defined words. Take it up with a scholar.

          • Jeff

            If that’s the case, then there is no such thing as a “Native American”. Because there is no race or group of people native to this country. EVERBODY CAME HERE FROM SOMEWHERE ELSE!!!

            • Gauss✓

              You’re arguing against defined words. Take your case up with a dictionary.

              • Bernard Alfred Stearos

                Yes Gauss, take it up with a dictionary! You may learn something. Jeff is and has been correct in his statements.

        • Marmee

          That’s not what native American means…

          • Jeff

            So tell me genius, what does it mean?

      • Jack Brown

        Anthropologists say all humans alive today descended from people born in Africa. That means my ancestry traces back to Africa, meaning I’m African-American even though I have blue eyes, pasty white skin and light brown hair.

        • william wilson

          That includes the so called “native americans”. We all came from africa, so we are all invaders.

        • matthew kish

          good point then that means as white as I am I can get me a black scholarship?? as I am of African decent?? do you know if you were born in Africa and white its hard to get a college scholarship because you are not negro enough ??

      • rocks911

        That dudes an idiot

      • Norbert

        I’m a native American because I was born in America and furthermore my parents were born in America. Therefore neither myself nor my parents immigrated to America because we were born here.

        Anyone who can describe their history and their parent’s history as I just did is a native American. Anyone who cannot understand this simple concept should think very carefully and break down what I wrote until they can understand it.

        • Laurie

          No Norbert you are what your bloodline is just because we Killed and abolished these people does not make it ours it’s like Muslims taking over Europe which they will there from the middle east that’s their true home were all just squatters of their land This is not ours never was and never will be.

          • Norbert

            You are wrong. Realpolitik, it basically means “Might is right”, and it is from ancient Greece. Based on power we took their land and revolted from England and formed America. And because of our power now, and our army, you get to have the freedoms you have. If someone conquers us then that is no longer true.

            The Muslims are soft invaders and we have a means to protect our country but our leaders are selling us out.

            I’m an American. We have laws, a constitution, and a military that says we are America, and the will of the people. I was born in America and I am a native American. And the 2nd Amendment protects my rights, along with my will to defend my country from all attackers both domestic and foreign. I took an oath as a soldier and it has never expired.

            Molon Labe!

            • Laurie

              Realpolitik that is probably an insult but I think that’s cute I’ll save that anyhow it’s good to know you’re a proud American as Am I
              But still we did genocide a whole continent of the Native people to take this land, they were here first, were they not ? and Our constitution will never change that…
              Now if you’re going to defend our country you have to do so starting at the border because by 2035 we will be Mexico extended under Mexican rule we are being invaded and conquered now if we don’t get Trump we the US are finished I am not kidding and just because we are born here does not change who we are…
              In case you haven’t noticed we have no rights anymore or very little criminal invaders have the rights..
              Trump 2016 !!!!

            • Laurie

              Leaving their mother England is the biggest mistake they ever made.

              • Norbert

                If you are English who cares what you think about what a native American is? You have your own native problems.

                • Laurie

                  Because I have known them and I am not so self centered to think that they don’t matter that only we matter and that they didn’t suffer they still suffer because of it look at the Sioux they cant even eat anymore because we killed their buffalo too which took their hides which kept them and their children warm we took their beliefs and their entire way of life not cool, not right to strip a nation a man of their dignity and throw them on a fuc”ing reservation and kill them if they don’t see it our way we are all Gods children this is their land that we squat on

                  • Norbert

                    Sure those who are born here in the United States have American citizenship. They have the same rights as the rest of us.

                    I’m pretty sure if they want some food they can buy it at the store and if they want to earn money they can do it by finding work. And yes, some Indians also receive checks for variance amounts of money from their tribes or whatnot. Regardless, freedom isn’t free and a stronger culture conquering another culture is history, read some of it.

                    • Laurie

                      That is true but it doesn’t make it right and have you been to the res have you seen how poor they are they never asked to live this way they don’t trust us and never will do you blame them? not one treaty did we keep with them, we broke every promise we made too them,..
                      what you and others don’t understand there not like us never have been and never will be their earth people they don’t want “Jobs” they don’t want any part of our lying Government, they don’t want our culture or religion we have forced them to live this way, a spiritual prison is what their in now because we made it that way yes we can rationalize and justify all we want but we cant all I am saying is that we have to take responsability for what we did to them and not turn the other cheek..

      • Walter28

        When we say “we’re all immigrants”, we’re whitewashing history. Immigration implies people are moving from one preexistent society to another — as if the original English and Spanish settlers moved to America to join Native American societies… which they absolutely did not. They came to destroy them — as invaders, conquerors and founders of completely new societies. And that’s not “immigration”. That’s “imperialism”.

        • Laurie

          That’s right Walter where our family comes from is our Native land.

          • william wilson

            how many generations before you become native? The native americans did not originate from here.

            • Laurie

              My grandparent came from Poland and the Ukraine that is what I am it is because of the slaughter of natives that I live here by blood this is not my home my grandparents were true refugees of war and did not kill any natives they came about 1903 but still I am here by birth but this is not my land…

            • Laurie

              they have not proved where they came from but they were here long before us by thousands of years and they had their way of life and we took it from them everything they are we took with no respect or re-guard for them and we still don’t.

            • Naki

              How’s this…you can claim to be Native American when your ancestry has been in the Americas as long as the American Indians.

      • John Everlasting

        she is truly a legend in her own mind

      • BadAss

        Im Native American because I was born in America, that makes me a Native.

        • Laurie

          Yes but really you’re from where your family roots are lets say Scotland than your really a scots people have no pride in what they are just because you were born somewhere does not mean that is what you are if we trace our bloodlines that is what we are it’s even in our DNA cant run from it.

          • william wilson

            Everybody’s DNA says we came from africa, so we are all invaders.

            • Laurie

              Every ones DNA does not say we all came from Africa where did you get that?
              My DNA is european

          • BadAss

            Look up the word (Native) in a dictionary

            • Laurie

              I know what a Native is do you think my brain is a box of rocks but all of us are immigrants Native Americans are not

              • BadAss

                I think a box of rocks is smarter.
                I am a native american by the definition of the word (Native)
                Why would you even be ok with the word American, Im sure it wasn’t called that before?

                • Laurie

                  Excuse me anyone born here is American but it is not the home of our ancestors..
                  To the Indians it is that is the difference I could go to my homeland because I do have one..
                  Where would the Indians go no where this is their only home get it now?

                  • BadAss

                    So if I was born in the USA and my dad was from Italy and my mom was from Germany and France, I can go to Italy, Germany and France but the Indians can’t?

                    Being born in America makes you native to America.

                    http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/native

                    • Laurie

                      First of all this is about immigration she is saying her family were settlers not immigrants but the truth is there immigrants, why because thy came here…

                    • Laurie

                      If the Native American went to Italy or France guess what they would be immigrants this is their Native home if you went their it would be the home of your ancestors that’s the BIG difference

                    • Laurie

                      Also if your german and went there you would be much more accepted they would never be accepted or wanted this is the only home they have ever known if I went to Israel I am at automatic citizen because I am Jewish this is there ancestorial home

                  • BadAss

                    So how is it people move to other countries all the time for work that aren’t their homelands and get their citizenship, but only Indians can’t move to other countries?

                    • Laurie

                      That’s not what I am talking about idiot figure it out
