You Will Not Replace Us

The moderate pundit Michael Steele said on tv today that the "replacement" has been going on since the first Europeans landed in North America.

Of course, he is right. The US has tried for many decades to eliminate the Red Man through war, slavery, starvation, assimilation, and laws to eliminate us as a people. 

Now the very race of people that did their best to eliminate us is now whining about the ''replacement theory''.

All Natives are well aware of the saying, ''We are still here''.

You have to consider though - a lot of the people who are whining now about being "replaced" have never picked up a history book or watched a documentary.

Nothing new.    

American Indian tribes regularly tried to “replace” other tribes long before European  colonization.    

They held slaves long before that as well.

I don’t know, I’m not complaining.    Perhaps it’s the same as any other complaint from an aggrieved party.    Some will always more aggrieved than others.    Such is human nature.

Ya really need to "study" your history Sparty - way different from what the white side tells/shows.

Oh yeah - the conqueror wrote the history you studied - makes sense.

Morning 1st,

Be happy to learn the truth.    

So you’re saying slavery was a 100% foreign concept to the continent.      That is not my understanding so what ya got?

Pretty simple - we "replaced" dead warriors, elders, women, children as the tribes/nations needed them from the tribes/nations who "lost" a battle.  They were to "take the place of those who went beyond" - not to be used as chartel nor slavery nor to prove invincibility, such as the Euro's do/did.

Yeah - we used the "replacement" policy to replenish our tribal/nation populations caused by war shed, diseases, marriages, etc. - nothing nefarious - no domination due to "killing all/capturing all".

"Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee" - "Trail of Tears" - "Custer Died For Your Sins" - and many others - excellent information guides.

“Pretty simple.”

Indeed. Two totally separate cultural examples. One society that reached equilibrium for centuries, another society that used genocide to justify self-serving needs. 

Is it any wonder the ‘replacement’ apologists are shaken to the core…thinking that the way they treated minorities will be revisited upon them. All while continuing to ignore the fact that those they have oppressed only want a level playing field and the right to co-exist without being told how that should look.

As far as I know the replacement nonsense began with democrats who proclaimed that non-whites would soon outnumber/replace whites in the US. Now suddenly we have another narrative swirling around. Can't progressives think for themselves?

As far as I know

It's obvious from your comment that you know nothing at all about this topic.  Or, you are attempting to deflect (unsuccessfully, of course) from the long-standing neo-fascist/neo-nazi trope that has now so thoroughly imbued reactionary politics.  Or, some combination of both.

Can't progressives think for themselves?

The real question is:  Why can't reactionaries think?

It seems to come up every election time.  The dems seem to think that is what will keep them in power.  That and they also get giddy when they talk about old white guys dying off.  They better watch out because it seems they are losing more and more of the minority voters with their bullshit policies.

         Can't progressives think for themselves?   

I think they tried it once and it did not work out very well so they haven't done it since.  Now they rely on the DNC to tell them what to think, cuts down on the angst.

Democrats, racialists that they are, have embraced racial identity and politics as the key to their electoral success. They just don't like being called on it, so they've conflated the Great Replacement Theory with any attempt to criticize their racialist views, the plans they admit to, or opposing open borders.  It's just the latest boogeyman they've created to tar people rather than defend their own policies. As Kyle Smith wrote:

"The horrific massacre in Buffalo has created a debate about great-replacement theory, the rancid idea that Jews are conspiring to destroy white America by importing non-white immigrants.

The Buffalo shooter was in thrall to the theory, as have been other racist and anti-Semitic killers.

The theory should be denounced by all people of good will, and indeed, it thrives only in the most sewerish precincts of the Internet.

Yet there is an attempt to tar Republicans more broadly with the theory and somehow attribute responsibility for the horror in Buffalo to them on this basis. The argument is that the likes of Elise Stefanik, a Republican congresswoman from New York, have warned that the Democratic Party views immigration as a way to change the electorate in its favor and so are mainstreaming the hateful replacement ideology.

This is a smear and especially perverse since Republicans sounding the alarm about this Democratic view have been unquestionably correct. There hasn’t been any secretive cabal at work — it’s all been out in the open, discussed by progressive political operatives and think-tank analysts and celebrated in the press.

The left-wing Center for American Progress issued a report in 2013 titled “Immigration Is Changing the Political Landscape in Key States.” It summarized its argument thus: “Supporting real immigration reform that contains a pathway to citizenship for our nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants is the only way to maintain electoral strength in the future.”

Oh yeah, another boogeyman... Remember the  great Georgia freak-out for passing voting laws more liberal than Delaware?  Jim Crow 2.0 or whatever hysterics Biden was engaging in?

Early turnout is setting records. Up 217% since 2018.

Whoops!

Voter suppression is largely a left-wing myth.

Republicans have won plenty of races, or do you think the narrow majority the Democrats currently hold is the result of that mythical voter suppression?

Claiming voter suppression is much like yahoos claiming voter fraud.

In voting rights case, Justice Barrett asks GOP lawyer Michael Carvin “what’s the interest” to Republicans in keeping voting restrictions in AZ. Carvin: “Because (without them) it puts us at a competitive disadvantage relative to Democrats. Politics is a zero-sum game.”
