THEY CALLED HIM "SQUANTO"


Recommended Posts

Contrary to the myth, little is remembered today about the fact that the first Thanksgiving celebrated by the Pilgrims was the beginning of bad relations between the white man and the injuns.

 

Much to their astonishment, an injun WHO SPOKE ENGLISH made contact with the Pilgrims shortly after they landed in the New World, and the injun offered to assist them in getting off to a good start on these foreign shores.

 

The Pilgrims neither needed nor wanted  his help.

 

In fact, they laughed and started calling him "Squanto," which infuriated the injun, thus leading to over 250 years of warfare between the whites and the red man.

The reality is that the  name Squanto is not derogatory and  Squanto who spoke English Patuxent and Wampanoag, gave the Pilgrims excellent advice on how to plant  corn, squash and other native Ameeica

I get your point and it's valid, but at the time they didn't want the president to be anywhere near as powerful as it has become.    The term "president" was used because it didn't signify a powerful

The Pilgrims actually settled in an abandoned village that had been wiped out by diseases spread by the Europeans.

Mirabeau knows nothing about the history of our country, He is a vile racist bigot who thunks bigotry is amusing.

America is the shining light on the hill for everyone with intelligence, good moral character and the Protestant work ethic, which of course, means that you don't qualify.

 

Instead, you are just one more pile of dog crap to be stepped in by those who are climbing the hill.

 

(This is really TOOOOOOOO easy, folks!)

As a former professor of history at a prestigious private college, Mirabeau can teach you so much that you don't know, provided, of course, you have the intelligence to learn.

 

Got it?

Like every nation on this planet, the US has both positive and negative features.

It took from 1789 until 1865 to officially end slavery, another 100 years to legally abolish discrimination and we are lately restoring the ability of states to limit the rights of some citizens to vote.  

 

Inequality is growing, social mobility is shrinking.

^^^ So unfathomably IGNORANT that she does not have a clue that the Founding Fathers, in their WISDOM, PURPOSELY limited the voting rights of those who had no business voting.
