That’s us. That is how The Left
looks at those who settled in the United States. At least the paler ones.
Though we are told the Vikings made
it to America first, they apparently inexplicably forgot to terrorize and
enslave the indigenous peoples before leaving…almost without a trace. (We do
have the Kensington
Then Columbus “discovered” America
and things quickly went to hell in the proverbial handbasket. Soon colonists
would demand things like representative government, the right to freedom of
assembly, religion, and speech, equal justice under the law, and protection
from unwarranted searches and seizures.
The right to life, liberty, and the
pursuit of happiness in a free market, capitalist system and a limited
government, of, by, and for the people soon begat a long sequence of racist products
of the white, Christian, patriarchal society. Such soul—and Earth—destroying
inventions such as electricity, the light bulb, telephone, radio, the computer,
and eventually the internet, joined with space exploration and rapid medical advances
in essentially colluding to oppress peoples of color and other minorities.
So, say leftists and progressives, it
would have been better for everybody if those damn Europeans had stayed in
Europe where they belong! Although, I guess they originally came from
somewhere else, too, which probably upset the established locals/indigenous
Europeans. Will they never stop colonizing, enslaving, and oppressing?
Come to think of it, though, the
Americans” also came from elsewhere, whether across the Bering Land
Bridge from Siberia or from some other direction, possibly displacing
the then natives.
Moreover, if civilization actually did
originate in the Fertile
Crescent and people spread out from there,
could the first group to get to any given place then claim that others deigning
to move there were naught but wannabe evil colonizers who should stay where
they were for eternity?
And how come “progressives” and other
leftist whackos believe that Europeans migrating to a vast, nearly unpopulated
wilderness rife with natural resources many years ago was an inexcusable
“original sin,” and yet simultaneously believe that the millions of illegal/undocumented
immigrants currently pouring over the border into a now heavily settled nation
rife with numerous social problems should be welcomed with open arms?
How is it that progressives consider those
who came to America and built the freest and most prosperous nation on Earth
between 1492 and, say, the mid 1900s, the only “bad” immigrants? Particularly while
simultaneously deeming “Native Americans” to be exemplary humans, as they do
those currently yearning to come to this systemically racist, sexist,
homophobic, transphobic nation.
Why do they afford “tolerance,
acceptance, and inclusivity” only to certain groups? By definition that isn’t
tolerance, acceptance, and inclusivity…it’s discrimination.
I’m sure it’s only coincidence that
those happen to be the groups they believe will help them attain/retain power
in the future. Right?
