Obama Announces Support for UN Resolution Stating 'Indigenous Peoples ...
CNSNEWS ^ | December 21, 2010 | Penny Starr

Posted on 12/21/2010 11:53:50 AM PST by yoe

President Barack Obama, addressing a tribal nations conference at the White House last week, announded that the U.S. government is now supporting the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People, which includes a sweeping declaration that "indigenous peoples" have a right to lands and resources they traditionally occupied or "otherwise used."

"Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired," says the U.N. resolution.

The Bush administration had declined to support the resolution.

At the White House Tribal Nations Conference, Obama reminded the group that last year he signed a resolution passed by Congress that “finally” recognizes “the sad and painful chapters in our shared history--a history too often marred by broken promises and grave injustices against the First Americans,” he said.

The president added that “no statement can undo the damage that was done,” but he said the resolution can “help reaffirm the principles that should guide our future.”

"“I remember, more than two years ago, in Montana, I visited the Crow Nation -- one of the many times I met with tribal leaders on the campaign trail,” Obama said. “You may know that on that trip, I became an adopted Crow Indian.”

“My Crow name is ‘One Who Helps People Throughout the Land,’” Obama said...........he has another name, "Walking Eagle".... means too full of caca to fly............

Well then, I'd say we have a documented case of CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

So does this mean that if some indian comes in your house and says it is his by virtue of it sitting on some land he thinks is yours that you have to quietly move out?

This is pure communism. Implies the taking of property to reapportion as the state sees fit.

“[O]ur native American brothers and sisters” were “pushed, bullied, mistreated, and shoved into all the land that we didn’t want. Guess what? Give them the wealth, give them the wealth! No justice on stolen land…we owe them a debt."

The resolution sounds like it came straight from the mouth of Van Jones. The above quote did.

I don’t know about Obama but I was born here so I’m indigenous. In public school I was taught that 10,000 years or so ago the American Indian came from Mongolia across the land bridge into Alaska then down.

If by some strange twist of fate, this were to pass, the first claims tribes should file on is every military installation in the country. And the White House.

Followed closely by claims on all the favorite locations of the Hollywood stars, like Malibu, the Hollywood hills, Palm Springs, etc. Then the locations of all the university campuses in the nation.

Just to let all the liberals know that Obama has BOHICAed them all.

Well, the “indigenous” peoples had to have taken the land from some prehistoric “indigenous” peoples that they fought and evicted. Anyone who thinks they’re descended from those earlier IP’s could claim it all.

I have a few drops of Cherokee in me; but that doesn’t entitle me to take land. (Just about everybody has some “indigenous” blood in their veins due to intermarriage in the early history of this country.)

"Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired," says the U.N. resolution.

So the Jews have the right to the lands, territories, and resources of the lands they have traditionally owned (i.e. Judea, Samaria, Canaan, Palestine, etc.)

Boy, Obama and the lame ducks have done more to destroy this nation in the last two weeks than they have done in 2 years.

The Native Americans inhabited North America long before the whites came over and in time, murdered and slaughtered them.

Does this mean we relinquish our country?

That’s how I read it.

It seems to me that indigenous means that you claim your culture originated on the land... my ancestors came from Ireland in the 1930. I don’t behave or speak like those in Ireland do — I’m indigenous to Indiana.

Besides, the original Clovis culture died when North America was hit by a comet 12,900 years ago... Everyone here is an immigrant.

Little bammy supports this?

"Indigenous peoples have the right to the lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned, occupied or otherwise used or acquired," says the U.N. resolution.

That is just paving a road to "justify" amnesty for the 30 million criminal illegal aliens.

How simple minded is THAT?

So... Muslims should be forced back to their traditional lands too?

Persons of other faiths (Christians and Jews among them) have prior histories. There is no "traditional lands" claim. Just the conquered lands by a dead warlord and his followers.

So, this of course means that white Europeans will be taking property away from those of African and Asian decent within Europe right?

And I'm certain that Jews and Christians were indigenous to the Middle East before muslims. And because white South Africans settled many unpopulated areas, they too would be considered the indigenous people in those areas.
