Natives have absorbed the LIE-beral idea that is also used in RED CHINA- that the party in power gets to write- OR RE-WRITE history as needed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Its that ability to re=write history as needed that prompted Our idiot Boy Justin to tell us "he likes the way the Chinese get things done"!!!!
And that LIE-beral fondness for EDITING THE TRUTH dovetails neatly with native "oral history" and "tribal memory"!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Natives edit their oral history whenever it is convenient TO THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Here is an article illustrating just how LIE-berals spread their pernicious propaganda. With some comments of my own in brackets):
As universities 'Indigenize,' some see a threat to open inquiry

The University of Manitoba in 2011 was the first school to issue a formal apology for past treatment of Indigenous people. "Our institution failed to recognize or challenge the forced assimilation of Aboriginal peoples and the subsequent loss of their language, culture and traditions," university president David Barnard said at the time. "That was a grave mistake. It is our responsibility. We are sorry."Brian Donogh / Winnipeg Sun
(An apology is one thing- but the total surrender of LIE-berals to native anti white bigots is another!)
On paper, Mount Saint Vincent University professor Martha Walls seems perfectly suited to teach a course called Selected Topics in North American History: Residential Schools. An expert on First Nations history, colonialism and gender, she has crafted a curriculum giving priority to Indigenous narratives and primary sources.
But according to her critics, Walls is missing one important qualification: she is not Indigenous. And when news spread that a “settler” would be teaching students at the Halifax university about residential schools next fall it prompted an immediate backlash.
(How odd that bigoted natives claiming to hold the moral high ground would smear those who do not share their “vision”! And yet natives are quite happy to permit TVO to play that documentary “The Bruce” about native fishing rights on Lake Huron- that relies ENTIRELY on old white documents for its facts that support native claims! Native bigots- with their selective anti white bias are like NAZIS- WHO only WANT select facts!)
To Rebecca Thomas, a Mi’kmaq woman and Halifax’s poet laureate, assigning Walls the course perpetuated the notion “that non-Indigenous people have the right and expertise to speak on Indigenous topics.” The proper voice is that of someone with “the lived experience of what it’s like to be a product of these systems within Canada,” she told the Canadian Press. Patricia Doyle-Bedwell, a Mi’kmaq woman and Dalhousie University professor, said the choice of Walls highlights the lack of space for Indigenous professors and “Indigenous knowledge perspectives” in Canadian universities.
(The bigot says that only those with “lived experience” can talk about native topics- so does this mean that once the last residential school kid dies of old age we can NEVER speak of residential schools ever again since there are no more “experts”? And what of native opinions about life before white arrival- NO NATIVE alive today can offer “lived experience” regarding any harm whites may have done so long ago - so should we tell all natives to sit down and shut up since they have NO LIVED EXPERIENCE of that time period?)
(Natives rely on law when it suits them and switch to heavily biased bigotry when that suits as well! Such an approach to history will NOT produce the peace and acceptance that natives claim to be seeking! Nor will this bigoted propaganda produce the GRAVY that natives are really aiming for!)
After Mount Saint Vincent convened a meeting of faculty and senior administrators last week, it decided that Walls could teach the course as planned. The university stressed in a statement that Walls is a “true” ally to Indigenous faculty and is “committed to honest reconciliation.”
(OH yes- shining the light of day on politically BIASED “cockroaches” scuttling through our education system out of sight of the public swiftly persuades them to adopt more conciliatory ways!)
That the fitness of a white academic to teach Aboriginal history became a topic of national debate, however, shows how quickly the climate is changing on Canadian campuses: as they respond to the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission report on residential school abuse, universities are in a race to Indigenize.
(Yes- its all about buying votes so LIE-berals and their allies can keep sucking up govt gravy! Why work when you can gain govt gravy!)
Declarations acknowledging traditional First Nations territory are standard at most schools before meetings and ceremonies. Universities poach relatively scarce Indigenous professors from rival institutions, and some set quotas for hiring Indigenous professors and enrolling Indigenous students. They are rethinking curricula, a few schools introducing mandatory Indigenous-themed courses and others incorporating Indigenous knowledge in existing courses. And questions are getting louder about who is entitled to teach about Indigenous people.
(In other words- LIE-beral bigots are seeking to re-write our history!)
There's much to say in favour of various Indigenization initiatives at the universities, but what worries me is the tendency many of them have to push us toward a culture of celebration
Administrators have embraced the reforms, presented as steps toward correcting historic injustices and making the university welcoming to Indigenous students and academics. Universities Canada, the non-profit organization representing 96 institutions across the country, endorses the “Indigenization of curricula” and promotes “the cohabitation of Western science and Indigenous knowledge on campuses.”
(Sadly- our LIE-beral bigots are treating native Cdns in the same muddled fashion as Yankee LIE-berals are treating black kids! Offering up fawning political support and preferential treatment in the hothouse world of academia does NOTHING to prepare kids for the real world!)
But amid the chorus of well-intentioned reformers, a few academics are sounding alarms about the impact on universities’ commitment to free and open inquiry. Some point to a politicization around Indigenous issues on campus that can be hostile toward critical thinking. Others are troubled to see universities hiring professors and admitting students based on race. And there are concerns that the embrace of Indigenous knowledge undermines a commitment to science.
(Oh yes- our hypocrite LIE-berals talk so often of freedom and equality and then try to implement these values by offering special privileges to select groups!)
“There’s much to say in favour of various Indigenization initiatives at the universities, but what worries me is the tendency many of them have to push us toward a culture of celebration,” said Mark Mercer, a philosophy professor at St. Mary’s University in Halifax and president of the Society for Academic Freedom and Scholarship.
“Good universities have a culture of disputation, a culture of critical inquiry and critical discussion. We interrogate identities. In a culture of celebration, on the other hand, people are to be confirmed and strengthened in their identities. Critical inquiry in such a culture is seen as disrespectful and even harmful.”
(With LIE-beraqls seeking to enhance that view that critical inquiry should be labled as Hate Crime to be punished in a LIE-beral Human Rights Kangaroo Court whose main focus is SILENCING any critic of ANY LIE-beral policy!)
The reluctance to criticize is understandable. At the source of the current Indigenization push is a desire to atone for the psychological and physical abuse inflicted on generations of First Nations, Inuit and Métis children who were sent to residential schools to be assimilated into white culture. “Education is what got us into this mess … but education is the key to reconciliation,” Truth and Reconciliation Commission chairman Murray Sinclair told the CBC in 2015.
(And why should we feel bad for Metis- who have always moved back and forth between native and white worlds- adopting what suits them and forgoing the rest?
Metis are not innocent victims- they are cynical exploiters! One has only to read Peter Newman`s books about the fur trade or a DETAILED biography of Sitting Bull to see this is true!)
(Metis happily traded in guns with Sioux warriors in their fights with U. S. armies! Metis could and did bridge cultures- dressed as whites they could buy guns and ammunition; dressed as natives they could sell those guns to Sioux so they could kill whites! Ottawa was concerned by the activities of Metis LONG BEFORE Louis Riel became a household name!)
(As for residential schools- there is no question the system fell into the hands of paedophiles- but we are still wrestling with the issue of how natives are to earn a living! In a world where over 80 percent of all jobs require post secondary education- only 25 percent of natives on reserves bother to graduate from high school- and then wonder why they are unemployed!)
(Sone philosopher once observed: “the quickest way to destroy a man is to pay him to do nothing”! Natives are being destroyed and biased propaganda and LIE-beral hypocrisy will NOT repair this damage!)
