Remembering The Alamo

NOTE: This message is in reply to a response to my previous post, "Remember The Alamo!"

Greetings and Salutations to All my Kith and Kin and All the Ships in Outer Space:

Those of you who presume to speak for American Indians need to study history.

First of all, the battle at the Alamo, and the war for Texas independence, was between Texans (both immigrants and native born - - - including a bunch of Mexicans) and the Mexican Army.

If any American Indians were there, they would have only been volunteers fighting on the side of Texas.

Second, the Cherokee Trail of Tears occurred in 1838, two years after the fall of the Alamo, and after Texas won the war and became a republic.

As for alleged atrocities against Indians, remember that there is another side of the story, and that was Indian predations upon White settlers, and upon each other.

Indians were famous for their torture and enslavement of captives, which so horrified White frontiersmen, that it aroused an awful retribution from which the American Indians have never fully recovered.

No, I sure as Sam Hill will NOT apologize or belittle anything done, either by my own ancestors, or any of America's founders, who struggled so mightily, and sacrificed so much, to establish this United States of America.

I believe the doctrine of "Manifest Destiny" was correct.

One thing I am fed up with is the contemporary American Indians' hijacking and distortion of the blatantly racist, Marxist, and anti-American politically correct term, "Native American".

Just who do you think you are?

I am a native American.

So is everyone else born in the United States of America, or its territories and foreign military posts.

I will not idly stand by, or quietly acquiese, while one group of people are allowed sole appropriation of "Native American", to the exclusion of all other groups.

That is a classic Bolshevik tactic, primarily directed against White folk, which is deliberately intended to disparage and denigrate the heritage of the pioneers.

There are actually individuals and groups out there who dare say White people should leave America and return to Europe.

This is MY native land!

I remember the ruckus surrounding the American Indian Movement, which was a front organization for the Communist Party USA.

I'll never forget my reaction when I first saw that newspaper photograph of the Indians showing off their AK-47 rifles.

At the time, my immediate thought was, "Where did they get AK-47s from?"

Today, anyone can purchase a civilian version of an AK-47 from any gun store in America.

But, back in those days, with the Viet Nam War still going on, AK-47s were impossible to get, as it was a Communist weapon.

Even combat veterans were barred from bringing a souvenir AK-47 back to the United States of America, unless the weapon was rendered useless.

Souvenir SKS rifles were permitted, but not AK-47s.

So, yes, you've stirred up a hornet's nest, because I am one very angry White man.

It ain't just the American Indians who are trying to destroy my heritage (and not all American Indians are guilty of this offense - - - just the ones who are so good at getting attention).

I perceive the same overt hostility from Blacks, Latinos, non-traditional females, and from homosexuals.

Thank you.
