The Sanderson brothers, who appear to be, perhaps, Métis, are accused of stabbing ten people to death and wounding 15 others in Saskatchewan, mostly on Indian (First Nations) reservations.

There’s no Sailer’s Law of Mass Stabbings (yet), but I’m not surprised that this tragedy appears to have something to do with Amerindians. I just mentioned in “The Geography of Homicides” that:

“There’s much discussion in the respectable press about legal gun purchases as being the cause (rather than, more likely, the effect) of the historic increase in shootings. It’s difficult to find statistics on what percentage of murders are committed with legally owned guns, but the CDC data lets you calculate the share of homicides due to gunfire rather than knives, blunt objects, fists, poison, or whatever. Among black homicide victims, 87 percent died by firearms compared with only 56 percent of American Indians, 62 percent of Asians, 63 percent of whites, and 75 percent of Latinos.

“As you might guess from rap lyrics, African American culture tends to encourage knuckleheads to use guns to settle beefs. Native Americans are also quite violent, but they aren’t as quick to resort to guns.”

  1. I have a friend who did some work on the Indian lands up in these northern parts of Canada – I think he was in one of the two neighboring provinces, Alberta or Manitoba. He has stories of how dysfunctional the “civilization” was up there. It might be that these people don’t have much history in their genes of living in a civilization to begin with.

    However, the firewater is a big part of the problem. They have/(had?) curfew hours in which you couldn’t buy it. (I don’t think storing some up in a cabinet is a thing for them …)

    Yes, using a knife is more of a quintessential Indian thing, but only because there is not a big spear industry right now.

  2. Knives are also popular with Middle Eastern Muslim types in Europe, no? Or is that just because they can’t get guns?

    The entire concept of the Indian Reservation needs to be done away with, and whatever is left of the Amerindian population must simply integrate into the US/Canadian society. Absolutely zero positive contributions to humanity at this point by any measure. Giving them booze and gambling certainly isn’t helping. Time to go the way of the Dodo.

  4. nebulafox says:

    Nah, I don’t think so. Spree stabbers are a thing in China. Xinhua might not talk about it a lot, but the profile is usually the same as it is in the US: asocial, unhinged male, often targeting schools, train stations, that kind of thing.

    (I don’t think the usage of knives over guns is a racial thing-it’s just a matter of what you have access to. If they had easy access to guns, they’d use them instead.)

    One thing that is different about the US is the degree of the medication regime that a lot of shooters, particularly the young school ones, seem to be on. I don’t think it is a coincidence that so many of these shooters were on SSRIs.

  5. Altai says:

    There are three kinds of mass shootings and stabbings (Mass attacks) those which are the result of a alienation and anger at society, (IE, the classic school shootings among others) those the result of being too deep in an honor subculture (IE, black shootings both in terms of interpersonal struggles of dignity and intergroup conflict) and organised political attacks (From Brevik on Utoya island to the Bataclan massacre, these kinds of attacks are new, however, since terrorism traditionally used bombs rather than gunning people down in the street. They seem to have been inspired by the Mumbai attacks in 2008. Also includes the mass knife attacks.) that can sometimes be argued to be a mixed of the former two in terms of their nature. Leaning more towards alienation in terms of the likes of Brevik or more recently the Danish guy in Copenhagen and towards the group honor culture in terms of the Bataclan and others but definitely a mix in both cases.

    First Nation people, particularly those on reservations live in a very depressing world where your culture and people are totally without control of their destiny which seems very bleak. As Steve has noted, this applies too to native peoples in the US, even moreso actually. And as he also noted, ‘deaths of despair’ among old stock whites mirror those of American Indians these days. Even with all the propaganda from the MSM, people emotionally know, they’re being displaced socially, economically and spatially now too.

    People need hope, even when things are bad as they can be a genuine hope for the future can be the difference between dejection and turning things around.

    The peoples of the West, like the First Nations don’t see much hope when they think of their people or their political power even if they have it individually. Thinking about their group makes them depressed.

  6. Dr. X says:

    Thank God Castro’s son banned guns and is in the process of confiscating them from white men who own them legally, though… he’s keeping the peaceful First Nations safe from the hegemonic oppression of the white colonizers.

    I’m sure it’s the fault of the Catholic schools that the savages went on a stabbing spree, maybe if they have a few more First Nations gay pride parades after the guns have all been confiscated this kind of thing won’t happen.

    The first time I was on an Indian Reservation (work, not pleasure) the first thing I saw in the middle of town at the gas station / convenience store / beer & wine only was an approximately 6′-2″, 250# dude laying on the ground ten feet from the front door passed out drunk at 11:00 in the morning and the citizens side step ignoring the sight.

  11. We were taught sweet little Indians hated to kill Brother Buffalo. And they used every single part of him when they did. I was taught this by dumbass white liberal women.

    As it turns out, they drove hundreds of buffalo off a cliff at a time, usually just for fun. They also wiped out most of the megafauna that was unique to North America right after arriving.

    Be interesting if their knife victims were the sort of liberals who virtue signal on “Native” rights (they aren’t natives, they came from Siberia).

    Man, do I ever get tired of hearing this stupid argument.

    Deaths of despair aren’t happening in the states where whites are being culturally and spatially displaced, like Texas, California, New Mexico, Florida or Georgia.

    As you can see, the deaths of despair are happening in the areas where white trash culture is strongest and where whites have solid majorities – West Virginia, Ohio, Missouri, Kentucky, etc.

    These people aren’t killing themselves because they think they’re being culturally or spatially displaced. They’re not. They’re killing themselves because their own culture is toxic. These people have resolutely doubled down on the fake-country, white trash redneck, suthern pride, pro-confederacy Trumpitarian bullshit. There are hardly any more non-whites in these areas than there were 80 years ago, and in some areas, like Northern Alabama, there are less.

    It’s also worth noting who is doing the deaths of despair. It’s mostly white boomers and gen X. People who embraced the absolute worst of the hedonsitic counter-culture of the later half of the 20th century. That’s the real culture that is killing them. If these people embraced Islam, for example, they might get off the booze and stop taking drugs. If they embraced Jewish culture they might stop chain smoking. Almost any alternative cultural influence would imrpove, rather than shorten these people’s lives. These people are dying because they have a toxic culture of rebellion, isolation, ignorance, substance abuse and Christian hardline ideology, something normal white people in states like Wisonsin, New York, Iowa and New Jersey don’t have.

    This doesn’t even get in to the economic failures of the high deaths of despair states as compared to say Texas, which does share cultural traits with Missouri and West Virginia but also has a much better economy than either state.

    Basically you’re seeing everything through your obsessive myopia, where everything is related to a white nationalist conspiracy theory. It’s obvious to any non-autistic person that deaths of despair have nothing to do with the leftist media bias or population replacement, and almost everything to do with the severe cultural degeneration among 50-70 year old people living in a small area of the US called the Rust Belt.

    I don’t really get the point of those “Indian reservations” in Canada and the US.

    I mean, in Brazil, in the Amazon jungle, ok — there are some actual Indian reservations there where Indians still dress like Indians and paint their bodies and dance and live in huts. But in the U.S. and Canada, they do not seem to keep any kind of tradition (except perhaps for selling trinkets and dreamcatchers to tourists), they are mostly mixed anyway (are there any pure red Indians still in North America, besides Elizabeth Warren?), and they just drink. Whether this alcoholic genocide was planned or accidental, I don’t know — it seems that Indians have less tolerance to alcohol, and that was discovered early on and used to help get rid of the Indian tribes. Ok, but now, Whites took most of the Indian land (and are giving it back to Mestizos, in an act of poetic justice), so what purpose does it serve?

Within the last week I watched a video of a woman get hit by a car twice within minutes, once while attempting to cross a busy street and the second as she laid unconscious on the road. Between impacts dozens of pedestrians and motorists went by her without mso much as a glance. the second video was of a chinese child that drowned in a well occupied swimming pool. the child struggled for sometime with no one in the vicinity making any attempt to assist.

    “ Spree stabbers are a thing in China.”

    China’s a big country, so no doubt that happens.

    However, both mental illness and violent impulsiveness is strongly and negatively correlated with IQ. Mass murder happens a lot less with Chinese.

    It is striking what a large percentage of our trashiest migrant populations are under active care for severe mental illness. It comes up a lot in criminal cases where some Afghan, Algerian or Somali kills someone and the file shows they’ve been treated for schizophrenia and in-and-out of mental hospitals since age 18.

    That’s actually a trait that doesn’t quite follow the normal Asian-White-Black curve. While Blacks have more mental illness than Whites and Asians, their rate is probably lower than the Muslim belt. There’s a natural baseline cheerfulness in Blacks that’s absent in the semi-Caucasoid Muslim belt. Very high inbreeding and high paternal age increases Muslim mental illness too.

    Another statistical example of Muslims being worse than Blacks is the obesity and diabetes seen in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and UAE.

  29. Muggles says:

    As most police and self defense experts will tell you, a knife at close range (say 10 yards) is more dangerous than a gun.

    Of course details matter…

    The reason seems to be that a knife wound is hard to prevent with a determined attacker whereas you can sometimes move out of pistol range or the gun jams, etc.

    The recommended technique is to wrap your defensive arm (usually the left) with a shirt or jacket and use your belt or some other long, flexible object in your right hand to wrap around the knifer’s knife bearing arm or wrist.

    Anything to keep that object away from your throat or face or main body. That is hard to do. Slashing knife wounds bleed out quickly.

    Most cops will shoot a knife attacker quicker than someone with a gun, especially a close range.

    Drunk and/or crazy with a knife is more dangerous than with a gun, since aim is important with a pistol. Not so much with a knife.

    Buffalo used to roam as far east as Kentucky. Explorers reported seeing them there as late as the 1700s. But when Indians acquired horses from whites that allowed them to travel great distances, and guns from whites, they hunted the buffalo to extinction out all the way to the edge of the Great Plains. The horse-gun combination made Indians a lot more efficient and capable at hunting buffalo than they had ever been before.

    The first great population crash the buffalo experienced was caused by Indians who had suddenly acquired superior hunting technology from whites. Scholars know this but don’t talk about it because it’s un-PC.

    2014 data. Here you go.

    The CDC map shows that drug overdose deaths are very high in Florida, Arizona and New Mexico. Also high in Massachusetts (Mass & Cass) and your beloved Wisconsin. Not as high as West Virginia, but still high. The District of Columbia, which doesn’t have a lot of embittered rednecks, but does have lots of blacks, has a higher drug death rate than Kentucky, one of those states you’re maligning.

    In other words, there are no easy conclusions to draw. Drugs are everywhere and so are drug users. As for whatever disdain you have for the culturally deficient rust belt, they at least don’t hurt anyone else besides themselves.

    I wonder if there’s a way to secure stats regarding negroes setting their families on fire. I only ask this because I recall reading “slave narratives” that are available via the Library of Congress. Back in the early thirties, someone thought of recoding the life stories of former slaves who were still alive. It startled me to read so many narratives in which the former slaves extolled the “advantages” of being a slave, as well former slaves recalling living in neighborhoods adjacent to white people. I was surprised that they seemed to usually get along well with each other, and cooperated with each other’s communities.

    One narrative in particular stuck with me. In it, a former slave was sharing how her community of former slaves got along well with their neighboring white community. She told the story of how, one night, an entire house in their community went up in flames at one in the morning, in which a negro woman and two children burned alive.

    Turned out that woman’s husband had demanded a divorce, since he had procured a new girlfriend, and his wife, owing to her worries of having to support two children alone, refused. The enraged husband chose to solve the problem by setting his own house on fire, with his wife and children trapped inside.

    So, owing to the fire and grisly deaths attached to it, word got around very quickly that very night. Blacks and whites alike were enraged by the husband’s actions, and a group of white men set out that night to catch the negro murderer/arsonist, which they did.

    The husband admitted to the vile act, and he consequently was hung from a tree by the white posse before sunrise, surrounded by wildly cheering negroes.

    The former slave narrator spoke of the entire episode with an undeniable air of gratitude for the white posse dispatching the evil black arsonist to his destiny.

    Anyway… the story always stuck with me, and always comes to mind when I read a news story of a negro setting his family on fire, so I was wondering if there was any way to secure statistics on that enterprise, which, like serial killing and slave-mongering, seems to happen within the negro culture far more than what many people might presume…

    “The Sanderson brothers, who appear to be, perhaps, Métis,…”

    I don’t think they are Metis. They were from James Smith Cree Nation. There is a difference between being Metis and being a member of a First Nation who happens to have some European ancestry, which is quite common. It’s not really like mestizo in Latin-America.

    The Metis are the product of marriages between French (French Metis) or Scottish (Anglo-Metis) fur traders/settlers who married indigenous women, usually Cree, then became endogamous and came to recognize their communities as a separate identity and nation with their own territories (ethnogenesis). My understanding is that in Mexico the Spaniards who impregnated indigenous women didn’t really stick around to help raise the kids. This resulted in Mestizo descendants being more culturally indigenous than Spanish. In contrast French/Scottish fathers married the indigenous mothers, helped raise the kids, and passed on their European culture, including such things as folk songs, styles of dress, French jigs, playing the fiddle and basic literacy. The result is that Metis have done much better integrating into European-Canadian society.

    In a totalitarian state like China, the danger is that, if you stop and help, the police might charge you with the crime. Also, the police are paid by how many crimes they “solve”.

    Please read your own chart properly. It says the average US overdose rate is 21.6 per 100k. Wisconsin is shaded in teal, which means it is anywhere from 18-24 per 100k. That means Wisconsin is not “high” but about average. The chart is consistent with everything I said. Arizona is a red state and the white people there are confederate-loving assholes who need to get exterminated. For the gain you take in New Mexico or Florida, I get a gain from Tennessee and Maine. Areas with little (new) diversity and a lot of rural redneck idiots. Does anybody really believe Florida’s overdose deaths are happening in the diverse southern part? Probably it’s the northern rednecks living in mostly white neighborboods.

    There is no anti-white death of despair crisis. It’s just a bunch of Christian idiots offing themselves in accordance with their fake religion’s hedonistic, apocalyptic, amoral teachings of self-indulgence. Bad culture breeds bad people.

    The entire concept of the Indian Reservation needs to be done away with, and whatever is left of the Amerindian population must simply integrate into the US/Canadian society.

    They don’t own as much land as people think. It’s a myth that Whites can’t buy land from Indians.

    A lot of their wealth comes from casinos. Retired Whites want to spend hours upon hours in front of a machine that is guaranteed to eventually take your money. So who gives an F.

    Leave the Indians alone. Visit a reservation and then visit a 40% Black city.

    My understanding is that in Mexico the Spaniards who impregnated indigenous women didn’t really stick around to help raise the kids. This resulted in Mestizo descendants being more culturally indigenous than Spanish.

    No. There’s a reason Hispanic castizos and mestizos identify as White in the United States. As early as 1533, Charles V mandated the high court (Audiencia) to ensure mestizo offspring were raised and educated as Spaniards. Also, if a castizo (three-quarters Spanish) married a 100% Spaniard, then the resulting child was regarded as a full-blooded Spaniard.

    SSRI’s are quite effective for severe depression at preventing institutionalization, self harm and suicide.

    For other mental problems that lack specific effective remedies, SSRI’s are needlessly prescribed but I doubt they cause spree killing.

    You don’t know the first thing of what you’re talking about. All SSRI’s cause brain damage. The logic behind SSRI’s is the trade off: It’s better to have someone somewhat functional and suffer the brain damage which will get them later, than to allow them to remain in bed every day, crying while in a fetal position.

    Too frequently patients decide they’re doing just fine, and simply quit taking them. That’s a great recipe for suicides, and homicides, including, but not limited to mass stabbings.

    Again, if you take nothing else away from this, fry it into your head that SSRI’s create brain damage. The best thing to do, if you’re taking them, is to wean yourself off of them, with the help of a qualified therapist, as soon as you can.

    Are you colorblind, mofo? No, you must be just plain handicapped, because there is no value of 27.7 anywhere in this chart. Wisconsin is shaded in teal (that’s the menthol color since your blackass probably never heard tbe word “teal” before). This means its overdose rate was 18-24 on this chart.

    Arizona isn’t being “immivaded”. Its population always ebbs and flows. Relative to historical norms its still whiter and less Hispanic than it usually would be. It has also lost white percentage due largely to migration of whites from Arizona, rather than immigration of Hispanics.

    https://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2014/06/10/for-three-states-share-of-hispanic-population-returns-to-the-past/

    Arizona is another state where Hispanics once outnumbered whites. In 1870, Arizona was 61% Hispanic and 39% white. The two groups are flipped today (57% white and 30% Hispanic). However, the share of Hispanics has nearly doubled since 1980, when the state was 75% white and 16% Hispanic.

    And the fact of the matter is that Arizona is still whiter than California, so why does California have fewer overdose deaths, including in Northern and central California? Answer: because white people there are not of the confederate-supporting, Christian, go against the grain, rebel against everything even-if-it-wasn’t-against-you variety that is so conductive to suicide and drug/alcohol abuse.

    >The Japanese don’t have a history of dynastic overthrows; their entire history can be thought of one Chinese dynasty.

    It wasn’t necessary because of the nature of political power in Japan, where power is usually wielded behind the scenes, and what is perceived to be by outsiders and what actually is political reality often sharply diverge. If you replace the word “emperor” with “shogun”, or sometimes not even that, then you see plenty of upheaval.

    The Sengoku period was named by Japanese historians off the Warring States period in China. (“Zhanguo Shidai” -> “Sengoku Jidai”.) And when you get right down to it, that’s exactly what it was, just with firearms. The emperor existed, but he was reduced to hawking calligraphy in Kyoto.

    It’s also worth keeping in mind that the turbulent, multi-state periods in Chinese imperial history are usually the ones where local warlords have a lot of power during the terminal and post-mortem phases of a dynasty, just as it was in the sengoku.

    >On the other hand, PRC has only ever had six paramount leaders:

    Well, they are just shy of how far the USSR got.

    One of the reasons why I’m skeptical of the notion that the PRC is inherently unstable due to state ideology is because there’s been more or less smooth transfers of power at the top. The only sort-of exception is 1978, and IMO, that was pretty predetermined compared to the Russian counterparts. A smooth transfer of power was something the Soviet Union didn’t achieve until the 1980s, when its resiliency as a state were in terminal decline and the legitimacy of the CPSU was resting on very shaky ground. The PRC has more problems than they let on (not that I’m in any position to talk as an American citizen), but I don’t see any analogue with the CCP’s control.

    The vast majority of emancipated slaves (~80%) recalled their lives under the institution of slavery as having been significantly better than during the post-bellum South.

    A reasonably well-behaved slave in America could expect:

    To not be castrated or otherwise physically abused.
    To be encouraged to form families and procreate.
    Be provided with all necessities such as food/water/medicine/clothing/shelter.
    To be provided a sedentary life in advanced years.
    To be allowed occasional group festivities/celebrations.

    It is my understanding that the further South you went, the more terrible slavery was. The Caribbean and Brazil were hell-holes for slaves, who didn’t live more than five or so years under slavery due to harsh working conditions.

    Howard- as you no doubt know, there weren’t enough Indians to defile the environment on a large scale. When their locality was trashed, they moved on. By the time they came back the defiled area had recovered.

    That’s not what kids are taught in school, though.

    Indians had fire and used it to make for happier hunting grounds. In California, they liked trees but not bushes, so they tended to set fires under conditions that would burn up the annoying shrubbery but not burn down the mighty redwoods.

    The original plan was just that: a temporary arrangement until the residents could catch up and integrate into modern society. Was going that way, but sentiment drifted until it is going the other way (big shift was in 1960 with Kennedy’s election). Now people are clamoring to have a reservation; Neil Gorsuch is giving them more power; Congress is voting them more gibs.

    I find it fascinating that Northern Amerindians have such a problem with Firewater, but their Azteca and Mayan cousins don’t to the same extent. Probably something to do with exposure to agriculture. Similarly, Northern Europeans seem to have a little more problem with Alcoholism than the Mediterranean peoples. I often wonder if this is one of the things that held the Northern Europeans back relative to the Greeks and Romans. It just took awhile for the alcoholism gene to be bred out of them to the point where they could advance their civilization.

    Black mall walking is still a thing. That is a weird one.

    Great point, Ganderson. I wrote in a post long ago (partly about the first real full-blooded Indian I’d ever met, or at least known I’d met – whose trailer and yard were the messiest place I’d ever seen in my life as of yet*) this point:

    The Earth can clean up after 2 million, 5 million, some will tell you 10 million (I doubt that), occupants of 3 million square miles. This was especially the case for a people who did not make the materials that are hard to clean up after – rubber, plastics, glass (not so bad), nasty liquids and heavy metals, etc. All they would leave as their mess would be human waste, animal parts, rock, maybe some rusted guns later on…

    There’s no evidence that the Indians in North or any of the Americas were these environmentalists they’ve been made out to be. The evidence is gone – Mother Gaia takes care of drunkards, Native Americans and … wait, I repeat myself.

    What sort of brain damage do they cause? Is the damage permanent?

    What scientists don’t know about the brain could easily fill 10,000 Libraries of Alexandria.

    That said, why on gods green earth would someone decide to take an SSRI to mitigate a very complex biological chain of events the results in you crying, while sitting under your desk in a fetal position? Because sledge hangers can produce results. Not elegant, efficient, or long-term desirable results, but enough immediate results to get you out from under your desk, which helps tremendously in not being divorced, childless, homeless.

    So I’m not knocking SSRI’s for emergency purposes, I just wouldn’t advocate for them beyond short-term, just like I wouldn’t advocate for shock therapy beyond emergency use.

    If only because… we don’t know enough about the brain to understand and agree on the long-term effects, which are likely not going to be good.

    Way back in the February 1996 issue of the American Journal of Psychiatry, Dr. Steven Hyman, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, describes SSRI usage this way: “chronic [drug) administration drives the production of adaptations ..including regulation of neural gene (brain cell DNA) expression. Changes involving DNA expression are complicated which is part of the reason why
    the adaptations may take months to fully occur. In some instances with patients where the drugs were administered, the changes are permanent.”

    I think it’s very safe to describe SSRI’s as a neurotoxin. Neurotoxins aren’t good. Part of remaing a viable human likely is related to genetics, ie, your body’s ability to neutralize them before irreparable damage occurs. This might suggest why long-term cocaine addict, Robin Williams, succumbed to the long-term effects of brain damage related to his many years of abuse. He was a committed cocaine abuser from before his Mork and Mindy series, and years after, as cocaine was a major component of him being able to perform as… Robin Williams. Watch old Mork and Mindy episodes on YouTube if you want a classic demonstration of cocaine-induced mania, as his creative Faustian bargain came to fruition.

    Williams paid the price: irreparable brain damage due to repeated abuse of a potent neurotoxin.

    SSRI’s are in the same category and more. That’s why I don’t think I’m going out on a limb predicting that boomer suicide rates will continue to increase, and the long-term use of SSRI’s are going to be authoring this behavior.

    Certainly, smartphone use and social media will play its part in mass depressive states, but it’s the long-term SSRI use that’ll make ’em crack, and they’re gonna continue to be jumping off those balconies, shooting themselves in the head, hanging from closet doors, at an historic rate.

    In this scene from the Chinese biopic of Ming general Qi Jiguang, you can see the samurai broke Qi’s wodao with his katana in one strike:

    This is what I meant by dynastic overthrows. Because historically the Chinese swordsmiths get “Zero-Covided” during the cyclical depopulation events, hence it was acknowledged that Japanese swords were superior.

    (That Qi won the duel was a realistic portrayal, but despite his heroism he lost some political faction beef and died in poverty, such was the meatgrinder that was Ming bureaucracy)

    Sengoku

    The Chinese seven Warring States (5 – 2 BCE), with its greater scale total war, with battles that easily exceed one million participants, are rather like Napoleonic Wars and WWI. The Japanese Warring States with many petty states, are rather like the Spring and Autumn period (8 – 5 BCE) or Thirty Years’ War. The parallel being that both Japan and Germany centralized rather later; whereas since Qin (2 BCE) for China centralization has been the norm.

    smooth transfers of power

    That Japan has constant PM turnover isn’t necessarily a sign of instability. The loser in a power struggle often retire in peace and sometimes rotated back to power (lest they are assassinated which are rather instances of gekokujō “the low overcomes the high”).

    The losers in a Chinese power struggle rarely have that luxury, like being convicted of “embezzlement” when Bo Xilai lost to Xi. In 1967, when Liu Shaoqi knew what the score was, asked Mao to let him resign and retire in peace. There was no way that Mao was going to grant him that, there was no precedence in Chinese history where such an escalated struggle that the loser ended up retiring in peace.

    @Loyalty Over IQ Worship

    Hmmm IQ… Did they run the (bison you idiot) off the hundreds of cliffs on the plains??? Someone earlier said that Indians are violent… Maybe so, but I’ve been around them all my life and I’ve never seen one in a fight or arrested for violence… Yes alcohol is a problem. I’ve heard it’s genetics and I believe most of that but I also believe it’s self esteem… The red man isn’t like the black man… A black man will yell and scream, even when he isn’t being mistreated when a red man will accept his fate, even when he is being mistreated… The worst thing I can say about my native brothers and sisters is they believe the lies of the left and the government… I couldn’t believe how many of my cousins took the jab… Lost two cousins, both full blood…

    But one thing you cannot deny is that they’re fiercely patriotic when it comes to the defense of their country… I guess, they’ve had their land stolen once and they’re not going to let it happen again. They have now and always have had the highest percentage of military recruitment of any minorities by population. Choctaw code-talkers, Navajo code-talkers… Natives sneaking into enemy territory and using their knives to take a few scalps. Part of that stoicism that makes them accept their fate works both ways… I.E., “guess we need to go kill some japs, or Arabs or whoever the enemy is at the time. And by the way, taking of scalps started with the Dutch taking the scalps of natives for bounty…

    And I have to say to some other idiot up the chain in the comments who said it’s time to move on, get rid of reservations because they provide no value… Spoken like a true Democrat who decides what is of value and what isn’t… My question is, do you believe in the constitution??? Why are the treaties signed by our government any less sacrosanct than that beautiful document? Instead of getting rid of reservations why not start honoring the agreements your (and mine) country made with the tribes…

    So any of you crackers (I can say that, I’m half cracker myself) think you’re experts on natives you should take the time to learn the facts… One of which is that there were over 500 tribes in the US when the invasion started. They were as diverse as the Vikings and the Irish… Some were warring, some were peaceful, but you do the Democrat thing and clump them all together… Sorry, but you’re a moron…

    American Indians are content to keep to themselves. They are a lot more mixed than on TV. That is partly why the tribal card matters. It doesn’t matter if you are 5% Indian or 95%. It all comes down to the card. That is why Elizabeth Warren looked so clueless. She not only faked being a minority but didn’t understand the basics of tribal membership. It isn’t about DNA.

    I think I am suffering from comment fatigue right now but the basic is this. MAGA, which really was the Trump nationalist economic program, is the kernel of the only plausible alternative to the racial-and-class exclusivist platform and program of the liberals and progressives and the Democratic Party.

    The idea behind MAGA was to unite the working class around an agenda of economic nationalism and inclusive, labor-oriented conservative populism. Anybody who thinks it was and is about the orange hair, big gut and boorish manners of the Donald doesn’t know much about politics. MAGA and especially the working class conservative populism it attempted to ignite were a real threat to the Democrats and they knew it. The country club and RINO Republicans knew it was threat to them too.

    The agenda embraced by the typical conservative white with less than a college education is pretty idiotic though. Especially with respect to higher education. They whine about merit, but what do they demand for themselves? As far as I can tell, nothing.
