Obama To Lose Yet Another Huge Voting Bloc?
August 26, 2012 By Miki Booth
Native Americans are very angry to learn that Muslims in the United States of America are being touted as indigenous, a complete falsehood. The fact is, American Indians are the indigenous people of North America, as Hawaiians are to Hawaii and the Aborigine to Australia. Organizations like BIMA marginalize native Americans in favor of Muslims, and Indians are not pleased. Speaking with many tribal friends and associates here in northeast Oklahoma, it is clear that the support Obama received from native American Democrats in 2008 is waning. They can see that the hope and change Obama promised four years ago was not what anyone expected. Especially not these people, with their deep Christian beliefs and rolls filled with veterans of foreign wars.

It's not that big. Many Native Americans do not vote.
The American political process and voting is an act of legitimizing the state, and I refuse to recognize the legitimacy of the state.
If he starts a ragg on Clint Eastwood, he’ll lose the old folks vote. We don’t like to be made fun of in our halting speech or rumpled hair. The mind is still sharp and my feeble hands can still fill out a ballot.
They’re trying their best to get them to vote aren’t they?
As someone who deals with a lot of Native Americans on a daily basis, I can’t get a handle on about how they feel about Barry this time around. However, the excitement that I saw in 2008 is not there. I do know that a lot of them will say that they are not better off now than they were before they voted for Barry in 2008. The Native Americans in Arizona like John McCain because of his being a veteran and for some of the things he’s done for them as Senator. I was really surprised when a large majority of them went for the “indigenous” Kenyan in 2008.
I am related to people of Native American descent and they do not vote. When asked they say they're not interested. Yet I have found they are interested enough to offer criticism of the government every chance they get. My response has always been to say, "If you don't like it, why not work to try and change it?" No response and no action = accepting the status quo.

You mean to tell me Elizabeth Warren and family aren’t supporting Obama?

The Obama administration has set up some kind of agency to oversee "indigenous" Muslims that seems to be made to sound like the Bureau of Indian Affairs and has PO'ed a number of folks for whom the word has real meaning.
This is more about the UN "granting rights" to a group of people within the sovereign borders of the US. In a nutshell, the UN wants to protect designated “cultures” from having to assimilate into their host country. This is a back door through our sovereignty.

My antenna definitely went up when I saw what BIMA meant. I knew there was some kind of scam going on. That being said, I’m confused: why is it necessary to protect the right of “indigenous” peoples outside the land that they’re indigenous to? In the end, every race is “indigenous” so somewhere. [Except maybe for White people -— we don’t seem to count]
Then again, when it comes to liberals, logic just doesn’t apply.
In 1492 Mudhamhead sailed the ocean blue.
THE BUREAU OF INDEGENOUS MUSLIM AFFAIRS (BIMA) IS A NON PROFIT ORGANIZATION SEEKING STATUS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS AS A NON GOVERMENTAL ORGANIZATION (NGO). BIMA WAS FOUNDED IN 1992 BY THE LATE HAJJ HESHAAM JAABER. THE OBJECTIVE OF BIMA IS TO PROVIDE SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT TO INDIGENOUS MUSLIMS IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Another constituency the current crew of Dems took for granted. Previous generations of Dems started the reparations juggernaut decades ago, and that’s how the Indian Casinos started.
Obama should’ve known better, these things need constant tending.Geez, there were so many angles he could’ve exploited
to hold onto the all important Native American vote, but I guess he and his team are just too stupid to have identified them.
