The fact that those protesters are probably descendents of immigrants is not at all relevant, nor does it make them hypocrites. No one is responsbile for what their parents do, and they sure as heck aren't responsible for what ancestors from hundreds of years ago did. Conquering happened all over the world and was simply how territory was gained. We have progressed and are now ruled by written law.

We can see from the past that uncontrolled immigration is never good. The natives were certainly not 'enriched' by being displaced by foreigners...we in the western world won't be either, despite what we are constantly told.

Well, its obvious what illegal imigration did for Native Americans. You would think that this Native American would understand our plight, Indians aren't allowing open imigration to their reservations. The video in the OP should be a strong argument against illegal imigration.


This irks me.

It's really cute to call the 'invading' peoples who made the nations you are in today, illegal immigrants. We cop it down here all the time when we try to call for border control to stop boats coming here.

We get called invaders, illegal immigrants and told to shut up about the new set of illegal immigrants.

But lets look at the facts.

The native peoples at the time were not going to put up much of a fight to stop the evil 'white man with guns'. Not a lot at all. Inevitably it was going to be a take over. As good or bad as you want to read into it, that is how it was.

And any one of you citizens of any current nation on this planet who bang on about how terrible and awful we are, well you only get to do so BECAUSE of history. You wouldn't even be born had the world turned out different. Another pure and simple fact.

Unless you think that somehow your grand parents would have met by sheer coincidence had no one ever taken another peoples land. Ignorance to believe it, but I guess you can believe what you wish.

Now, *WE* - the people of the current world - have the right to say who comes into our lands.

If you want to go on about history and how we're so evil and should just bend over and accept illegal immigrants en masse, you're basically saying they you accept what happened to the people before us.

So.. which is it.. We are evil and nasty white folk who plundered a land, so we should now bend over and let the next lot rape and plunder the land, because we're guilty so we should just shut up about it, OR..

Were the noble peoples of yesteryear so worthy of your current support, that you would say the same now about the same things? Yet you don't. You rally on about "It's a free world man, lets all have a big hug guy. Peace and light to you and your stuff dude"...

Borders are there for a reason. Those who fought and lost.. well thanks to the way things are now, they didn't lose at all. The victors are giving back everything.

And more than this, we're told to bend over and take it like the guilty vermin we are...

Sorry guys, the cake is baked. no point crying about the use of self raising flour instead of plain.

No argument from me.They most definitely got the shaft.However,this is really nothing new.Throughout the history of mankind there have been many indigenous peoples who became the victims of foreign invaders.The only real difference is that those other peoples were,for the most part wiped off the face of the planet,either through inter breeding or out and out genocide.At least the Native Americans were allowed to continue breathing.Once again,I am not condoning what happened,just stating facts.

I wonder if "Native Americans" had been more organized, with better communication, they could have teamed-up and resisted the Colonialists. Surely they could have thwarted the movement westward by closing the Cumberland Gap.

Didn't the Sioux and others overrun other natives, wipe them out and take their land as the white men pushed west?

This will of course not set well with Native Americans and all those who think they have some kind of special civil rights inherited from their forefathers and who have no regard for immigration laws and limitation, they don't and you don't have any special rights, anymore than I, as a descendent of Royalty would have a claim upon Crown Lands or the Lands of my forefathers in England or the Canary Islands.

I am not sure how to press this reality into your brains but Possession and the Rules of Law Govern this World. The Native Americans through wars and conquest drove out what inhabited the land before they came; one civilization replaces the next; these are no longer Indian Lands and the survivors who subjected and subverted themselves to survive certainly are not entitled to any special compensation; although they are entitled to what was promised them.

This country, the USA does not belong to Mexico or Mexicans, it belongs to Americans who in each generation earn and re-earn that right.

I am not going to attempt to explain this any better because those who don't get it or simply don't agree have and will have plenty of opportunity to prove me wrong and pay the prices for failure; just as all those who think this country is a Socialist Democracy have and will have their opportunity to replace this Republic and those who stand behind it; just like Obama and those with and behind him are having their chance. The Land Belongs to those who Possessed it...Now, prove me wrong.

This post started off well - until I read the last sentence.- which I will repeat below.

''At least the Native Americans were allowed to continue breathing.Once again,I am not condoning what happened,just stating facts''

This is a disgraceful and thoughless statement, You should be ashamed.

1] most wars do NOT lead to the invaders wiping the peoples of the conquered nation off the planet - so that is factually incorrect.

2] The Native Americans - were subjugated, marginalised, displaced and many starved to death, following the Indian Wars, the many land displacements they endured,

They died from the diseases that were intentionally and unintentionally inflicted on them, plus, starvation, war, alcohol etc.

So you think it is all ok because some of them were left breathing -- come on .................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It seems to me that Native Americans should know better than anyone about the problems associated with unchecked illegal immigration. It's obvious that the ones pushing hardest for this are the elites that want cheap labor to lower wages for everyone. We should just go with our natural distrust of the motives of the Federal Government.


The Elites are allowing this agenda to be pushed. They will always be in their ivory towers with money they confiscated from the populace while they watch people fight in the stadium.

Also Agenda 21 is pushing the agenda as well because again the Elites know full well that all will be under the control of the UN, all the lands, all the resources minerals water food, everything.

Of course he's correct. And of course there's numerous ways to view any one thing. Man, I must've watched this clip about 8 times.

doesnt matter if he is right or wrong-we are supposed to feel guilty because people feel that they have some
moral right to be a part of our people even after they broke numerous federal laws just on their way over here.

Im supposed to say "Well- there are already a million plus illegals in my city alone, screw it, citizenship for everyone".

The thing that pisses me off the most about this whole situation- is the fact that they somehow seem to be
above the law because the police do not arrest them or question them. Thousands of illegals are driving on our streets when they dont even know what the word "stop" means.
Ive seen them get into car accidents- then bolt away before emergency arrives leaving the other people
holding the bag.

There is a system in place- if you dont use it- then you should pay the consequences. Everything in this world has a price, and going through the proper channels in order to get away from your own criminally charged country- is not so much to ask. Esp when you know that you can be arrested and deported back, why risk your families livelihood when all you had to do was act like you really wanted to become a US citizen and not just
another day laborer hanging out at the Star Nursery day in and day out? Learn the language- buy insurance. Open a hamburger stand instead of having 30 taco stands on one street, BLEND. A lot of them stick out like a sore thumb- like looking at someone who was timewarped here from the year 1980.A good majority of them dont want to be citizens- they just come here to work and send that money back home,

I can write a novel about this subject- I have plenty of experience dealing with illegal aliens living in Vegas

sad part is- most of the Americans that dont care about them- dont have to deal with the consequences .

now Im sure some PC emo would tell me that I should feel bad about the things I see and deal with on a daily basis.. I dont....it upsets me.

Hell- they even repeat everything in spanish on all the public transportation busses now. Like any real American would have a hard time understanding the de facto language of their own country.

Yes, European countries did invade North America and took it over. Europeans fought, and won that's how history went down. Native Americans can rant and rave about it all they want but it doesn't change the history or the present. I can understand his frustration but is that any reason to protest a protest on immigration policy? I guess it wasn't really a protest on his part just a direct rant meant to insult people based on what their ancestors did. If you're going to yell and curse out the people of today over something the generations of yesterday and then some days did just stop there, invent a time machine, go back to any year Native Americans were being killed and go rant to them. Although I would suggest not doing that because you'd probably find yourself as another statistic.

Good luck with time traveling, regards.

And once again, I have to repeat that what happened to native americans is an argument IN SUPPORT of tight immigration policy.

You either believe that inhabitants of the land have a right to protect their cultural heritage, and then you should be against both illegal immigration and native american genocide. Or you dont, and then its might (or numbers) makes right and native american genocide was justified.

It is sad when this thread got 45 flags while the argument behind it is complete nonsense in a way it is presented.

It occurred to me after watching the news, this thread was likely created in lieu of the actual news of Obama planning to give illegals a right to be here without deportation even after a crime and being in jail. OP you are a sneaky guy.

Oh, boo hoo! How about we tell ALL of the history, instead of only the parts that allow a group to whine and complain for special treatment? Howe about the many Caucasoid skulls, found all over North and South America, that the "native Americans" want to cover up? You know, the skulls that are WAY older than the oldest known Amerind remains? How about, too, the legends of many, including the Cherokee, of white-skinned people that they wiped out when settling in the Southeast? Gee, I don't hear anyone calling THEM "illegals" or any of the other names that European Americans get. How many did they leave breathing again? Wait, I think it was, NONE. Stories all over North and South American of white skinned people, that the "natives" found and wiped out, and they want to whine that someone did it to them later? Well, boo hoo. Welcome to history on Earth.

I rarely post but the the comments on this thread have been ignorant.

The majority of Mexicans have come flooding in after NAFTA was enacted. The vast majority are rural people who faced a decision, let their families starve or leave. These "Hispanics" are actually...wait for it...INDIGENOUS AMERICANS. THEY ARE INDIANS. THEY ARE INDIGENOUS. THEY ARE NATIVE AMERICANS for the most part. The Mexican phenotype is that of the Indian. You've turned the native into the foreigner.

Their lands were stolen after the enaction of NAFTA...history repeats itself endlessly. Hispanics are not a race, they come in all colors. Richer white Mexicans do not have any reason to come here, they live better than most of you.


I pose two sincere questions to you.

Please tell me, has anyone who was born and raised in this country experienced famine or seen people starve to death?

If you have kids, would immigration laws stop you from making money to feed them? I am not saying all illegals are saints. That is not the case. But some of you love to talk so much. When your economy crashes, it will be ironic if you have immigrate to be able to keep your family from starving to death.

lol you'll have to climb the very walls you built

No, not true. Genetic evidence refuted all those claims of the multiple skulls. Feel free to catch up with the science on your own.


Here's your ancestor by the way.

While I agree that "native Americans" got a raw deal when white europeans came to America,this man does not have his history quite right.The ancestors fo what we call "native Americans" came here from somewhere else.They came across the Bering landbridge several thousand years ago during the last ice age.So while his people may have been here longer than,say,my people,he is no more,and no less "Native" than am I.


That is right their DNA has been traced to a place of origin in Siberia.

That does not negate the fact that they were the settled population when the English arrived and the later Europeans, who destroyed their way of life. For good.


It does not negate the fact that none of these people are several hundred years old- and the new immigrants come to the US, not to live some long gone "NATIVE" lifestyle, but to enjoy the civilisation built up as a result of the European arrival (and later others)
