Did You Know?

by DW Green — May 20, 2020

How such glory could be misconstrued as an indignity is beyond comprehension, but it demonstrates how truth gets distorted into its opposite for political gain.

The impact of Native American spirituality had a profound effect on the founding fathers of the Constitution of the United States in that the Congress is almost an exact replica of the political structure of Iroquois Nation. WOW!

In more recent times, that Native American spirituality has been weakened by politicians and resultant exploitation. In reality, the American Indian is greatly honored everywhere. Whole states, cities, rivers, mountains, and great lakes are named after them. The greatest sports teams, noted for courage and bravery, proudly carry their name; yet, the political distortion is to declare that such honors are really defamations and politically incorrect. How such glory could be misconstrued as an indignity is beyond comprehension, but it demonstrates how truth gets distorted into its opposite for political gain.

P.S.

RIP Ken Osmond, aka Eddie Haskell. Leave It To Beaver was my favorite show as a kid! Hilarious!

    DW – so incredibly true. The perspective on the distortion of twisting the use of Native American names from honoring to disparaging is so accurate. Way back when when a team like the Atlanta Braves decided to use the name Braves, I sought they said, “Hey, what name can we adopt that dishonor, and disparage a particular group? Let’s go with Braves so we can make fun of native Americans!”

    I suspect it was quite the opposite as you write. A good portion of politics has turned into creating victim groups so that your political group can appear to be rescuing those very victims that were created.

    Pretty f’d up IMHO.
