Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson, calling for a national "atonement" over the treatment of Native Americans, vowed Monday to rescind medals of honor for those who fought against them and even take down President Andrew Jackson's portrait from the Oval Office if she's elected.
The spiritual author, who has gained a devoted following in recent weeks for her memorable debate performances, called for a new era of American history with Native Americans during an appearance at the Frank LaMere Native American Presidential Forum.
"We can atone. We can make amends," Williamson said. "And if and when I'm president of the United States, we will. We will begin by taking that picture of Andrew Jackson off the wall of the Oval Office."
Jacksons presidency was notoriously marked by the signing of the Indian Removal Act, which resulted in violent conflicts between Native Americans and the U.S. government amid the relocation of thousands of Native Americans.
Williamson called the portrait "one of the greatest insults."
She then took aim at another symbol from that historic period, vowing to withdraw military medals of honor for those who fought against Native Americans.

I guess they don’t claim him any more.
What if we got rid of Lincoln.
The way Indians treated each was often culinary!
Ask the Aztecs? or read these! (see below)

This is an academically explored subject (Hence the books!) but one which ignored by those laboring in sweat shops of the college/university classrooms! It doesn’t fit the white man bad, red man good narrative! Nobel savage nonsense still prevalent! (Rousseau has a lot to answer for!)
The natives were a Stone Age people!!!!!! They did stone age things!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well Duh!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There’s been recent work done on sites in Neolithic Europe (New Stone Age)
The brie & white wine (or is it whine!) crowd of academic Europe are shocked! Shocked I say ! To discover that eary Euorpean man kild ate & massacred each other left & right!
Many many new excavations show frotresses (built for a reason!), destroyed , burned & teh inhabitants killed!
Its what stone age people do!
And to be fair, here’s a US mountain man that the movie Jeremiah Johnson was based on:
Crow Killer: The Saga of Liver-Eating Johnson (Midland Book)
and Africa & Asia is full of the same!
Why? They are human beings too!
One things humans definitely share across all races & cultures is killing each other be it family, clan, tribe, race or nation!!
My family was affected by that. Massacred in the late 1700s.
Wonder if Spirit Lady will take that into consideration when she flies into the Oval office on a broom.
Getting off "The Rez" is just about the smartest thing he could possibly have done. My limited experience with "The Rez", both in USA and Canada, suggests that it's a lousy place to raise your kids.
Who's gonna win?
my previous response was
Not a rant aimed at you
Just a rant aimed any notion that the Indians were all Tonto and somehow were more moral then anyone else!
wikipedis: Great Grant Deed
Native Americans are earth worshipping pagans so they are much better than nasty ole Christians.
she should start her own atonement beginning with
the terrorist in Texas whose father supported her.
So tired of the insane and their ignorance.
and the Mound Builder civilizations were pushed aside (or toppled) by those who later became the Eastern Woodland Indians. The Apaches were pushed out of the American Northwest well by somebody!
Nations pushing around other nations....tell me it ain’t so!
Tough world out there!
Maybe we should burn all books with his name?
After the battle of Horseshoe bend, an Indian baby was found. Parents probably dead.
Guess who adopted the little tyke and raised him as his own? Yes it was Jackson.
“SHUT HER UP!”
Maybe she should go to Somalia to meditate and radiate good thoughts to the natives there.
[I see the Land of the Lost Party has the sleestak as todays spokesperson.]
Since Democrats cannot change history, they will attempt to rewrite it in hopes that young and the uneducated will not know the difference.
That will go over well with veterans. Voiding decorations and service medals of dead men. Really classy thought there.
