Posted on 02/01/2011 7:25:31 AM PST by MNDude

Stunning new photos taken over a jungle in Brazil reveal new images of one of the last uncontacted tribal groups on the planet.

The photos reveal a thriving, healthy community living in Brazil near the Peruvian border, with baskets full of manioc and papaya fresh from their gardens, said Survival International, a rights organization working to preserve tribal communities and organizations worldwide

"The illegal loggers will destroy this tribe," agreed Survival International’s director Stephen Corry. "It's vital that the Peruvian government stop them before time runs out

Funny how liberals view primitive tribes as an interesting animal that's to be ejnoyed by observing from afar, rather than fellow human beings that would enjoy an air-conditioned house and a flat screen TV as much as the rest of us.

Liberals would force them to immigrate to the USA, but keep them in loin clothes and grass huts all in the name of ‘diversity’.

Fox just got hoaxed. This pic which was itself a hoax of another network has been around for years.

Uncontacted means:

No modern medical treatment.
No modern education.

We are not doing them a favor by leaving them in ignorant squalor.

It never occurs to the left that people live this way because it’s far better than urban poverty and eating out of trash cans.

The “contacted” tribes are absolutely delighted to have a house, mac n cheese, and a television. The only downside is their poor resistance to diseases but that’s a different topic.

I remember when a hoax tribe in the Philippines (late ‘70s or early 80’s) reeled in some gullible reporter. He bet his whole career on them and lost. His career was probably resurrected by some news agency. He could be a star on MSNBC and I would never know it.

If my memory serves me correctly, this picture was published a year or two ago with the same headline. It then turned out to be fake.

Yep. Same exact picture. It looks like the anti-logging folks are trying to resurrect the hoax to create a guilt trip for the Peruvian government. Hope it doesn’t work.

That photo was taken several years ago, and the ‘tribe’ had had many contacts with modern people. It was a big hoax back in 2006, and it’s a bigger hoax now.

I don't doubt you but, if this image has been around for years, I would expect TinEye to have some hits for it.

As it is, It returns 0 results.

We're all insects to the liberal elitists, except that we are the cockroaches and the primitives are the preying mantises.

LOLZ, go to the “Survival International” website.
They have loads of videos of cameramen walking around with what they
call “isolated tribes” and how Survival International is there to make sure they aren’t bothered. Do they NOT see the hypocrisy of their stupidity.

If they were really about conservation they would have a policy of “know where they are, and stay clear away”. All these folk want to do is go play with them like toys while telling others they can’t.

That said, I think its fascinating to learn about isolated and undiscovered cultures, but to to pimp your line by lying about what you are doing is just sad. I prefer the National Graphic way.

“A spokeswoman for the group told FoxNews.com that the Brazilian government has an entire division dedicated to helping out uncontacted tribes.

“In fact, there are more than one hundred uncontacted tribes around the world,” the group explains.

BS. If the government is helping them, then they are CONTACTED.

So they’re an uncontacted tribe - and they’re about to be destroyed by eeeeeviiiil loggers. Which is it? Cause it can’t be both.

Precisely. They treat these people like zoo animals.

The truth is that there is nothing wonderful about preserving stone age cultures. The vast majority of these people cease to exist because they prefer to leave it behind once they have an opportunity to.

They wouldn’t walk around camp like that all day.

Uncontacted? Yes, but curiously, each member of the tribe has a current Cook County, Illinois Voter Registration number.
