A United Nations fact finder surveying the lives of Native Americans and Alaska Natives said Friday he’ll recommend in an upcoming report that some of the tribes’ lands be restored, including the Black Hills of South Dakota.
Funny about that: a RedState/MoeLane fact-finder surveying the lives of American citizens (which include Native Americans and Alaska Natives*) wrote today that he’ll recommend right now that UN Headquarters in NYC be evacuated** and the building be reduced to rubble via multiple artillery strikes. Guess which is more likely to happen?
So what gives the UN a mandate to recommend that the United States return Mount Rushmore to the Sioux? It is a 2010 decision by President Obama, who reversed longstanding US policy and endorsed the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People.
Here’s a free tip for the President: there’s usually a reason why we routinely ignore the stupidities of the UN bureaucracy. It often behooves one to actually, you know, look it up first. In this particular case, the aforementioned Declaration – as is usual for these sorts of things – calls upon its adherents to do things that the federal government of the United States of America is actually not permitted to do. This concept may startle the administration, given that liberals generally do not recognize it as a valid one*** – but then, liberals are not exactly a majority in this country.
PS: Yes, I am a horrible person for insisting that Native Americans be more fully integrated into America, rather than turning their existing Nations into full-fledged, autonomous mini-countries. …And?
*Damned if I know why there’s a difference. Probably due to the fact that that UN bureaucrats have to do something when the supply of Third World kids for UN child prostitution rings temporarily dries up.
**Yes, evacuate it first. Don’t be nyeh kulturny.
***I’m sorry, but liberals do not. The idea that there are things that the American government cannot do, no matter how much the government might want to do them, is simply anathema to the Left. That’s why the Left wants to talk about the Constitution being a ‘living document;’ it makes it easier to change the rules so as to permit the latest fad.
