Fox: Sioux Indians, United Nations, Demanding Control of Mt. Rushmore
Fox News Channel (no link) | 5/7/12

Posted on 05/07/2012 11:01:47 AM PDT by pabianice

Per Fox...

United Nations "diplomats" have concluded a tour of the U.S., speaking to Indian tribes in six states. According to Fox, many of the tribes involved told the UN they need the UN's help in reclaiming "ancestral sacred land," included in which would be the Mt. Rushmore monument and surrounding national park. One is left to wonder just what changes to Mt. Rushmore would then be made. The Obama Administration was reportedly responsible for arranging the UN tour. Just in time for the 2012 elections.

Your $3B/year UN dues at work.

This ain't going away.

The Left is always probing for some way to destroy America.

This is another sortie.

What a twisted story ... native Americans asking a foreign agency to help them reclaim from a rogue American government their own land, and the question is; How will it all turn out ?

Remember Wounded Knee should be the battle cry.

So the UN backs American Indians in their quest to reclaim sacred tribal lands but wants to deny Isreal in their quest to maintain their sacred tribal lands.

They can have Detroit, Baltimore and Chicago. It needs the CAPEX. Imagine the casinos for miles...Call me a Neanderthal...but then the UN would need to give me Europe....

“ancestral sacred land”

The various tribes have a long history of sacred traditions and beliefs. It is not right to try to force them to happily coexist with our materialistic, nonspiritual society.

I therefore propose that all of these sacred lands be returned to their rightful owners, and to insure that the Indian culture is not further damaged by our gross materialistic society, all Indian tribes be prevented from having any ownership or involvement in casinos or gambling operations of any type.

(Listen, you can hear a pin drop!)

Maybe Elizabeth Warren should lead the march on Mt. Rushmore to reclaim it for her Sioux ancestors.

Are you surprised?

The UN, like the US State Dept,
makes heroes of killers of any Jew (including
innocent handicapped ones like Mr. Klinghoffer).

There is reportedly a statue at the US State Dept
to his murderer.

Besides Obama, what other 3 faces would the UN have sculpted there after removing Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelte? I say Nelson Mandela, Jimmy Carter, and maybe Che Guevara.

Here's an idea for a wild time.

Tell the Indians they can have ALL of their land back. Tell every non-white person, whether a decendant of slaves or not, they can have their 40 acres.

Anyone thinking places like New Zealand would be a great place to escape this insanity should know the maori have been suing to take back the forrests and fisheries (oceans) from the colonials for a couple of decades.

They've accomplished a lot claiming post-colonial stress syndrome. Not kidding. They got millions and millions in reparations, spent it and came back for more. It never ends. Ask Canada.

Ummm, I thought all the land was sacred according to the animist beliefs of the immigrant Mongolian tribes.

Meh...

Best of luck with that.

Lots of Indians are getting fed propaganda from agitators looking to stir things up.

Grew up outside a Rez. It destroyed the people on it.

So-called “native Americans had the continent fr 20,000 years and worked their way all the way up to the Neolithic.

Europeans arrive and five hundred years later are leaving footprints on the moon.

Who should be in charge of what?

If indians took over Rushmore, it might improve it. If you go to the nearby Crazy Horse monument, it is a much nicer experience.

So what if native Americans had claimed the entire Rocky Mountains as sacred? Or one or all of the Great Lakes? Or the Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio, or other large American rivers? How about the entire North American land mass? What then?

Now cut it out! It appears to be easy to dismiss the American Indian, the one who built large cities, erected water and sewage distribution systems, erected massive cathedrals,built roads connecting those cities, discovered Euclidean geometry, constructed boats and explored not only the North American continent but traveled to other continents!

Oh, ..... it was the Europeans that did all that???

Ummmmmm.......never mind.

Goodbye, Mt Rushmore.

Jefferson is the only Democrat up there.
That ain’t enough to save it.

Look for it to be blown-up and replaced with a casino.
This administration won’t be coming to the aid of three
stone Republicans.

Of course then they can do the “new” Mt. Rushmore in
California with FDR, Woodrow Wilson, LBJ and Clinton
up there.
