Texas was stolen. Time to give it back.

Imagine if the U.S. were to open interior Alaska for colonization and, for whatever reason, thousands of Canadian settlers poured in, establishing their own towns, hockey rinks and Tim Hortons stores. When the U.S. insists they follow American laws and pay American taxes, they refuse. When the government tries to collect taxes, they shoot and kill American soldiers. When law enforcement goes after the killers, the colonists, backed by Canadian financing and mercenaries, take up arms in open revolt.

As an American, how would you feel? Now you can imagine how Mexican President Jose Lopez de Santa Anna would have felt in 1835, because that’s pretty much the story of the revolution that paved the way for Texas to become its own nation and then an American state.

If that’s not the version of history you’re familiar with, you’re not alone. The version most Americans know, the “Heroic Anglo Narrative” that has held sway for nearly 200 years, holds that American colonists revolted against Mexico because they were “oppressed” and fought for their “freedom,” a narrative that has been soundly rebutted by 30-plus years of academic scholarship.

History is written by the winners.  Texans (Texians) won…suck it up, buttercup.

The Texans LOST at the Alamo.

They lucked out and caught Santa Anna asleep and hung over with the Yellow Rose of Texas, ans captured him.
The Texans failed to live up to the main terms the Mexicans gave them.

NO, they did not.

Again, the Texans did not physically defeat the Mexicans. They captured Mexican president Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna and told him they would kill him unless he agreed to grant Texas its independence. Santa Anna was a coward.

Anglo Texans outnumbered  Mexican Texans. And by the way, Spanish speaking Texans disliked Santa Anna as much as the gringos did.

I have read that book.

It was excellent.

Sam Houston was portrayed as a hard drinking, fowl-mouth, barroom fighter in the S. Texas cantinas.

His nickname was "Senor Goddamn".

I read Hawaii & Centennial by Michener, also.         They made movies out of several of his books.

He was a damn good writer.                                                                          🥃.

Michener was great at making history come alive. He wrote books about Mexico, the Caribbean, South Africa, Israel and Chesapeake as well. He was an orphan of Pennsylvania Dutch origin.

Sam Houston was a foul mouthed barroom fighter. So was Jim Bowie.

But no has a right invade our nation by the millions thru the Biden/Harris Open Border Crisis.   

No one.    

 

And I most certainly do not like Dem negros like Maxine, Omar, Tlaib, Warnock, & Cori Bush.

You are mighty free w/ a ranch that don't belong to you, ain't cha, boy ?

 

1.    The statute of limitations has run out.

2.   possession is 9/10ths of the law.

3.  10 million heavily armed, White, Terxicans say that land is ours......we ain't givin' 1 square inch back.

4.  Texas National Guard is militarily stronger than the nation of Mexico.

 

Tejas belongs to the...............Texicans.     An old saying in Texas.........             

"Don't start no shit.......and there won't be none".                                                          🤠....🥃.

Read your (non-ultraliberal) history...you ultraliberal FK nut !

 

Texas was a separate nation that asked to joint the union. (they have special privilege's of flying their flags because of it)  All the other land that ultraliberals say was stolen land was won in a war and paid for also. (Look it up)

 

BTW: Mexico stole the land from the prairie nigga's to begin with..
