Quite naively, the Native Americans failed to realize that the refugees they were inviting into their country had no interest in learning their ways. Instead, the pilgrims were looking for a new land to dominate, to evangelize and mold into their own image.
Despite the best efforts of the Native Americans, the refugees refused to stop painting their faces, hunting bison into extinction and killing majestic birds to only throw their into their heads as they declared war against the Native Americans.
For over 200 years, the refugees waged bloody war upon the Native Americans. They refused to accept that the Native Americans — by the order of God — had a manifest destiny to create a new country named the United States of America that was to spread from ‘sea to shining sea’.
Even after 1776, the refugees remained warlike and unappreciative. They continued to assault and attack Native American settlers who tried to bring civilization and order to the wild back country of the Americas.
The warlike refugees created strongholds of mutiny — called reservations — that exist as independent countries in the US to this very day. Despite that first Thanksgiving years ago, when the Native Americans tried to extend mercy and refuge to the refugees, there was never peace, thanks or assimilation.
This history should serve as a reminder to all Americans. Much like the Indian refugees centuries ago, Syrian refugees do not want to co-exist with Native Americans. They want to come to America, disrespect America’s Christian tradition and hunt down all the remaining wild game in the country. They want to build their own communities and eventually form reservations within America, just like the Indian refugees did year ago and just like the Palestinian refugees are doing in Israel.
Obama has already given a city in Michigan to the Syrian refugees. How long until he makes it a reservation and its own nation?
