Every now and then someone steps out of obscurity for just a moment to publicly stand up for truth and justice in the face of superior numbers who are being fueled by rabid hatred of things that they don’t understand.
On such person was a Native American man who confronted the protesters in Murrieta, California as they gathered last week to protest the refugees from Central America being bused in to the Border Patrol facility in their town for processing, not to stay in their town, only to be processed there before being sent to live with relatives already in the country or placed in foster care.
The unnamed man approached the lines of the bigots as they chanted and waved signs telling the refugees to go home, and that they and their kind were not wanted in this country shouting at them. “You’re all f**king illegals,” he raged, “you’re all illegals.”
“We didn’t invite none of you here!”
From the crowd the voice of one man who is apparently irony impaired can be heard to reply, “I was born here.”
At one point the inability of the protesters to understand how lame their actions are is illustrated in the defense that the racist almost always falls back on, reminiscent of the “I’ve got lots of black friends” defense a woman shouts from the crowd, “we have Native Americans here.”
“That represents blood,” the man shouts as he points to an American Flag. “That represents blood spilled by Native Americans defending this land from the invaders.”
It may be that he was drunk as the protesters accused him, at times he does sound like he might be, however it also might be just that he was very angry, either way there is no disputing the truth of what he was saying. We Europeans were not invited here by the indigenous peoples, we simply decided that much like our Judeo-Christian heritage told us that God wanted the Jewish people to possess the land of Israel he also wanted us to possess the land of North America.
When we arrived on these shores we proceeded to do exactly as the Jewish people had done when they first arrived in the land that would become Israel, we took the land and subjugated its original citizens.
