Skip to comments.Obama: Unless you were a Native American, you came from someplace else
Posted on 01/29/2013 8:39:07 PM PST by Nachum
This afternoon in Las Vegas, President Obama reminded most American citizens that they were descended from immigrants themselves. Obama warned that the issue was an emotional one, but that it was important for Americans to not view it as us versus them. Its really important to remember our history, Obama continued. Unless you were one of the first Americans, a Native American, you came from someplace else, somebody brought you, he said

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
I was born here dumbass. Want to see my birth certificate?
Did he happen to mention where he came from?
Nobody "brought them" The illegals snuck in.
Where did the native Americans come from via the great land bridge of the ice age? I’m sure there are other theories.
What a tired canard. Doesn’t the “smartest man in the world” know that EVERYONE, including the Indians, came here from somewhere else? According to scientists, we’re all Africans. You’d think an African would know that.
No, peabrain, I was born here. Where the hell are you from?
What a moron
The difference you undocumented incompetent lying Marxist idiot community organizer is that my ancestors came here legally.
Potage du jour
Note “somebody brought you” and “someone made it happen” (the latter was part of “you didn’t built that”.)
What does it mean? It means that unlike me, a self-made man, you’re nobody, somebody else made ya!
The halfwits of America are well represented now. Unbelievable!
*Every* American born here is a native American.My original immigrant ancestors were from Europe. Me, I was born here.
If you believe the (Biblical) tale of Adam and Eve being created in the Garden of Eden between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, we probably come from Iraq.
Some of my kin has been here 400 years.
If family tradition and a common sense read on known history is to be believed, some of them have been here a whole lot longer than that. At least a thousand years longer.
Which has absolutely nothing to do with the price of tea in China. Or with the existence of a birth certificate in Mombassa.
Or whether the United States of America is still a nation with defined borders and the rule of law.
What an idiot.
That is exactly how I understand it.
Native Americans were here Much longer ,
but they aren’t native to America., somewhere southern Siberia, according to DNA .
Is he seriously calling the descendants of the Founders immigrants? How many generations back does he expect one to go?
-- Mr President, a call from Chicago.
-- I'll take it, Valerie.
-- Barry, This is William. Ayers. I heard your speech. Unfortunately, it didn't stay in Vegas as it should have. What happened to those Ph.Ds in History and English I hired for you to write speeches? Hold back a little, Comrade. The peasants out there aren't taking it well. Don't stray from the teleprompter, or we'll both be in trouble with the boss in the Kremlin.
That’s the “theory” they taught me when I was a kid.
I think it’s bunk. I subscribe to the idea most came up from South America and those folks came from Asia across the ocean.
Nobody "brought" me here. I was BORN here! Descended from ancestors that legally came here almost 500 years ago and they had to jump through hurdles to legally settle here under British regulations. None of them snuck over here.
Hey, Obama, unlike you, I’ve held a real job, paid real taxes, and didn’t make millions off the public dime.
Presidents should have to pay back any money they make over $400,000 dollars a year.
Oh, right, this is ObamaWorld, where rules only apply to you and me, not those who are better than us. I feel so much safer knowing that the only guns in the room are under his control...NOT.
Don’t lower yourself to argue with an idiot. All Americans, including those naturalized, are Americans. It’s those post-colonialists that are homeless.
It’s the same exact line of thought. You didn’t make it on your own, you didn’t get here on your own.
He doesn’t seem to realize that even the native Americans migrated here.
So it went from “You didn’t build that” to “You came from someplace else” gee Obama..where the hell did I come from then..outer space? I can see why Obama refuses to release his college records..probably received straight F’s in school..but hey, thank goodness for affirmative action
Of course not, the only ones present were no doubt his knee pad wearing MSM creeps. And they, being dumbed-down like most in the US these days, did not know any better.
The Native Americans are all descendants of illegal aliens from Siberia. Deport them now!
No individual born here in America to parents who were also born here, whether having Shoshone or Mohawk or Aztec, or Egyptian or Mandingo, or Manchurian, or Hindu progenitors, is more or less native American than myself.
Don't push that "Native" American, scalp-taking, stake-torturing, squaw-abusing, tobacco-inhaling nonsense on me, Buds. I'm not going to buy it or bow to it.
And if you're Afro-American, whether with light or deep melanin in your epithelial covering, go home with my blessing. But friend, if you are native American, loving and serving this beautiful homeland, let's be pals.
Except Barack Hussein Obama, that is.
Note somebody brought you and someone made it happen (the latter was part of you didnt built that.)
I think that you are on to something that underlies Obama’s thought process and propaganda. That a person is not an individual - they are only a part of a collective whole. And only even exist because of the collective whole. And it is the collective that has value. The individual on its own is literally nothing - without value or substance or worth.
We usually think of an individual person as being valuable on their own, and combine people with different talents together and you can make something bigger and better (a company, etc.). But it is just the other way around with Obama. If it weren’t for the collective whole, the individual WOULD NOT EXIST. Therefore - the individual owes EVERYTHING to the collective whole.
I've got news for the @sshole-in-Chief!! There are NO NATIVE AMERICANS! Those traditionally called Indians also came from somewhere else. What a dumbf&%$ this chit-for-brains is.
By the way, Mr. Dumb@ss, my ancestors came to this continent 360+ years ago. While that isn't the 10,000 years claimed by "Native Americans" (who came here over the land bridge from Eurasia), it is way farther back in time than your ancestors can claim.
Even by Obama standards this is a stupid thing to say.
‘Native” Americans came from some place else as well. They where just earlier at the gate.
I’m sorry, but I think that you are lowering yourself to his level, arguing with such idiocies, and presenting your own biography to prove he’s wrong.
No, he’s wrong because he’s expressing thoughts of a mentally retarded person, to whom only simplistic truisms appeal and are understandable.
Let’s not forget that we’re not talking about LEGAL immigration, but illegal immigration (a.k.a. gate-crashing, invading).
The two types are always being conflated, and you never hear talking heads use the “i” word (illegal).
I’m descended from immigrants, but my Great-Grandfather came here legally on a ship from Europe. He didn’t hop a fence or sign up for entitlements at the first opportunity, and he learned how to speak English.
Thanks for expanding. I knew I was onto something, just couldn’t articulate it, and you did it perfectly.
The Indigenous Peoples HERE before Europeans were not Americans OR Indians, original or otherwise. You’d think he might know that too.
In fact ‘American Indians’ is something of an oxymoron.
Sort of like obama calling himself an American when he is really anything but. He is to America what kryptonite was to Superman.
Furthermore, while HE might have come from someplace else and might not even know where, I didn’t. I was born here. I am a Native American. Period.
And where does it, this kind of thinking, come from? Why, it comes straight from Obama’s mentor professor William Ayers himself, for whom individuals are nothing, and 20 to 30 million of them can and should probably be gotten rid of on the road to Utopia. We know exactly who inspired such thinking in the past century.
Is that Obama’s excuse for letting any illegal cross our non-existent borders? Sorry Obama, the ‘other’ people who came her did it legally. It’s the difference between a valued guest in your home and a thief. Both are people who came to your home - but very different in how they’re welcomed or not... Grow up democrats.
american indians came from some place else also...last I read they mirgragted from russia to alaska when there was a land bridge there..
Defining “alien” down.
Where’d the Native Americans come from, dumbass?
I didn't come here though; I was born here.
No dumb-axx (hussein) - I was born right here in America like my parents, I did not come from somewhere else.
