Minnesota Democrats Propose Transferring 155,000 Acres To White Earth Band Of Ojibwe


Minnesota Democratic State Senator Mary Kunesh and Democratic Minnesota Rep. Aisha Gomez have put forth a bill that would give state-owned portions of the 155,000-acre White Earth State Forest “back” to the White Earth Band of Ojibwe by 2029.

Kunesh stated: “This is an acknowledgement of White Earth Nation’s sovereignty and their inherent right to manage their lands as best they see fit.” That’s as may be, but died-in-the-wool liberals like Kunesh and Gomez do not like it when others, such as western ranchers or straight white suburban males, manage their lands as best they see fit. Odd.

Progressive Democrats in the Minnesota state legislature don’t live in the White Earth State Forest, so they don’t give a flying tomahawk what happens to it.

Though also “stolen land,” these virtue-signaling hypocrites never offer to give back, say, 5th and Hennepin, Loring Park…or the mansion-besotted soil surrounding Lake of the Isles, for example. I’m sure it’s just coincidence that they happen to live and play on these grounds. Right?
