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 Hawai’ians are to Hawai’i 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.

lol! Sure they are.

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.

The article mis-identifies the website address (blog) of a Native American lady who was targeted by V. Jarrett because of her anti-Obama and Constitutional views. I'm not associated with the lady or her site, had never heard of her, but if somebody wanted to see what the fuss is about here's the correct address:

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.

I think Miki is missing the larger point.

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.

Purpose

The Declaration sets out the individual and collective rights of indigenous peoples, as well as their rights to culture, identity, language, employment, health, education and other issues. It also “emphasizes the rights of indigenous peoples to maintain and strengthen their own institutions, cultures and traditions, and to pursue their development in keeping with their own needs and aspirations”. It “prohibits discrimination against indigenous peoples”, and it “promotes their full and effective participation in all matters that concern them and their right to remain distinct and to pursue their own visions of economic and social development”. The goal of the Declaration is to encourage countries to work alongside indigenous peoples to solve global issues, like development, multicultural democracy and decentralization. According to Article 31, there is a major emphasis that the indigenous peoples will be able to protect their cultural heritage and other aspects of their culture and tradition, which is extremely important in preserving their heritage. The elaboration of this Declaration had already recommended by the Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action.

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.

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.

still misses the point. Indians, Aborigines, Hawaiians etc..for want of a better phrase, are ethnic groups.
Muslims are not “indigenous”anything.
You can't stop or start being an Indian('cept for Elizabeth Warren)...you CAN stop being a Muslim.

Actually they were just here when we came back. Evidence shows Europeans were here before the Indians. Maybe the Indians wiped the out first and we just got back what was ours.

There's no such thing as an indigenous Muslims. Could kickbacks be involved? You know, dems and the Chicago way...

Jibril Hough, one of the organizers from the nonprofit Bureau of Indigenous Muslim Affairs, or BIMA. "A lot of our issues that we are going to be bringing up will not be discussed by RNC or DNC. Both parties have supported deals that are eroding our civil liberties."

I hope none of them vote!
They (and their casinos) keep reminding us that they're a foreign nation!

Here's my experience with American Indians ( I have a very small percentage of Indian blood) When I ran field operations for Catholics Against Kerry I found that for the most part Indians are Socialists who love being on the Democrat dole BUT BUT BUT we talked about aborting babies to the Indians and flipped many - especially the Navajos in New Mexico. Indians don't want the White man to trick their women into killing them off via abortion. If Romney talks pro-life to the Indians he can make headway with them.

I don’t know how I missed this thread...

Anyway, better check the dictionary for changes to the definition of indigenous. The online dictionaries are very pro-progressive in their examples and links.

Hmmm, my spell checker corrected the “indegenous” from the article, maybe that is the new word for immigrant?

Happy Labor Day, 2ndDivisionVet!
