The Fourth of YOU LIE: of the Foundation of American Democracy! Daniel Boone, Thomas Jefferson, Davie Crockett, Jim Bowie, Kit Carson, Abraham Lincoln? INDIAN KILLERS!! By Thomas Pearce

In 1992 Native people in KY and allies during the 500th anniversary of Columbus decided to correct local historic monuments to alleged heroes of colonialism in the Ohio Valley. The picture you see above is one example. It was a statue of Daniel Boone at the entrance to? “Cherokee Park”. There are 4 parks in Louisville named after the people driven from this land. Cherokee, Shawnee, Chickasaw, and Iroquois. Of course there are monuments all over this city to Confederate Generals, Indian killers, slave owners, and the like. There are absolutely none to Tecumseh, Blue Jacket, Harriet Tubman, or any native or African-Americans. A couple of streets that is it. So as I was watching Tecumseh’s vision, the PBS special last night, I was reminded of several things that deserve exploring. So once again I am going to  poke holes in “American History” and saw the legs off of statues to genocidal murderers. Sorry.

In Incident at Restigouche, filmmaker Alanis Obomsawin delves into the history behind the Quebec Provincial Police (QPP) raids on the Restigouche Reserve on June 11 and 20, 1981. The Quebec government had decided to restrict fishing, resulting in anger among the Micmac Indians as salmon was traditionally an important source of food and income. Using a combination of documents, news clips, photographs and interviews, this powerful film provides an in-depth investigation into the history-making raids that put justice on trial.

TO Glenn Beck From the Soviet Conspirators Behind Everything!

Glenn, Glenn, Glenn, you do know you look like an SS officer in this picture? Right? SO funny you are calling everyone else a communist/fascist? Look at you?

Where do I start?

Ok you have found us out, we were the true engineers of the uprising in Egypt.We engineered Katrina to undermine Bush. We are behind the economy falling apart, the Obama rise to power, the Obama fall from popularity, the Tea Party, the Illuminati, you name it we are behind it.

Can you believe a bunch of poor destitute communists are more powerful than corporations? We must be a bunch of wizards and warlocks. That must be it. We are really SATAN.

Here you are calling for liberals and progressives to be shot in the head and wow I am so surprised it took you so long to get around to.
