By Gilbert Mercier, News Junkie Post ~ Article Submitted by ‘The Old Sniper‘ ~ The sad reality about the United States of America is that in a matter of a few hundreds years it managed to rewrite its own history into a mythological fantasy.
The concepts of liberty, freedom and free enterprise in the “land of the free, home of the brave” are a mere spin. The US was founded and became prosperous based on two original sins: firstly, on the mass murder of Native Americans and theft of their land by European colonialists; secondly, on slavery.
When Christopher Columbus “discovered” the Americas in 1492, on his quest for gold and silver, the Native population, which he erroneously called Indians, numbered an estimated 15 million who lived north of current day Mexico. It was, by all considerations, a thriving civilization.
Three hundred and fifty years later, the Native American population north of Mexico would be reduced to fewer than a million.
This genocide was brought upon the Natives by systematic mass murder and also by disease, notably smallpox, spread by the European colonists.
Just to ruin some people’s appetites before they attack that golden turkey: keep in mind that today we are celebrating a genocide.
