Trump blowing up sacred Native American burial sites

#1 Post by Jamiet99uk » Mon Feb 10, 2020 10:37 pm

Does this orange arsehole not embarrass you, Americans?

Don't you care about this shit?

Is your racism toward Mexicans and non-whites so entrenched that you celebrate this fucking shit?

As I pointed out in Trump's Wall, he went after Catholic chapel too, but hasn't bulldozed it, yet. For a party that pushes Religious Freedom, it only applies for their version of the correct religion.

Trump has a narrow view on acceptable people and hates anyone that doesn't think like him or outshines him in popularity. He's even attacked his Jewish daughter (converted) and son-in-law for putting religious observance over doing what he's wanted.

Arizona is fairly racist about sacred Indian sites and has a long history of invading them for commercial purposes. If it isn't an acceptable white religious site, it doesn't count.

Native American Indians are most probably not members of Daffy Donald Trumptoad's core constituency so why would anyone except him to give a pinch of rocking horse shit about their interests ? I suspect that Daffy Donald Trumptoad's core constituency would probably approve of his racism towards Native American Indians.
Is Mitt Romney and only Republican MP retaining any credibility ?

I am curious about how burial sites are handled in the new world. Building on burial sites in the UK is extremely common and no one really bats an eyelid, purely because if we did no one would be able to build anywhere. The dead can only expect to lay to rest 100 years or so (less in parts of London) before they're dug up to make room for someone else. Older sites can be treated with more respect if they have archaeological or historical significance. Do the dead tend to be treated differently over there?

In my opinion the treatment in the Antipodean Australian nation of first Nations (modern description of aboriginal or indigenous persons) burial sites by Whitey C's Australians has evolved since invasion.
In the first century or so of expropriation little or no attention was given to first Nations burial sites. If found they were either looted for skulls and skeletons to send back to enlightened European​ museums etc or built over with disregard.
In our bwave New world everything to do with a first Nations burial sites​ is treated with delicacy by all stakeholders & respect, except in isolated cases where traditional dumbass redneck practices still occur.

Yes, it's extremely embarrassing and some of us Americans actually do care. I'm not looking forward to another four years him...
