Dem Platform Honors Native American Tribes That Fought Against U.S. in War of 1812

WFB: The preamble to the Democratic Party’s draft platform formally honors a list of Native American tribes that resided on the land where its convention is being held—but neglects to acknowledge that many of these groups allied with the British and took up arms against the United States during the War of 1812.

The first page of the Democratic National Committee document begins by “acknowledg[ing] that we gather together to state our values on lands that have been stewarded through many centuries by the ancestors and descendants of Tribal Nations,” a reference to the party’s August convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The platform praises Native American communities that resided in the region, including the Chippewa, the Ho-Chunk Nation, and the Menominee Nation—groups that sided against the United States in the brutal 1812 conflict. read more

  1. Everyone shows what they are now, it’s all revealed and no one hides it or even can hide it.

    But will knowing what they are make any difference?

    Maybe if you’re a conservative but not if you’re a Liberal, at least not a politically useful one.

  2. Indians – fukkin losers.
    Picked the wrong side in 1812 – and that wasn’t their first mistake!

    The British and French used em (Indians – principally Iroquois) as their proxy warriors for about 150 years (1609-1750) which reduced their numbers by about 90%. And the dumb fukkin Indians STILL didn’t catch on!

    And then the Indians sided with the British?
    Sounds similar to American Negroes and the Demonrats, don’t it?

  3. Of course they totally ignore the fact that the Indians fought each other for generations and enslaved each other.

  4. It’s all so confusing. Or maybe it’s entertaining education.

    The democrats are now dishonoring long dead members of their own party, tearing down statues & removing their names from buildings, that only wanted to secede/leave the country, but otherwise leave it alone to be governed by its founding documents, and principles.

    And are now openly honoring those that would have destroyed the country earlier in its history.

    Well, I guess they’re prioritizing, and focusing on their primary goal, destroy the country. Attempting to leave the country didn’t go far enough, when total destruction of its founding principles and form of government is their real ultimate goal.
