Mt. Rushmore, not US Territory, Says UN Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Mon, May 21, 2012, 08:21 PM

United States Attorney General Eric Holder is pondering a proposal by the United Nations to hand over U.S. sovereignty of Mt. Rushmore to Native American groups.

The UN contends that the four so-called “imperialist presidents,’ whose faces were carved on the mountain, stands as an insult to their dignity.

The Guardian Unlimited UK reports that, “US should return stolen land to Indian tribes, says United Nations. UN’s correspondent on indigenous peoples urges government to act to combat ‘racial discrimination’ felt by Native Americans.”

An investigator of the UN has conducted a massive investigation over discrimination against Native Americans and is demanding that President Barack Obama return some of the land stolen from Indian tribes as a step towards fighting continuing and systemic racial discrimination.

The UN alleges that President Obama is an egregious abuser of Native Americans and he can only make amends by handing over land to the groups he is abusing.

They also note that since he has apologized on behalf of the U.S. for so-called land seizures on Native American property then that makes the U.S. legally responsible for lawsuits launched by Native Americans.

According to the Guardian, “James Anaya, the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, said no member of the US Congress would meet him as he investigated the part played by the government in the considerable difficulties faced by Indian tribes.”

This is just another reason to get out of the UN! We support them, they attack us, & what do we get out of the deal?...Nothing!!

Eric Holder examining an issue like this is like the US gasing up the planes to attack Pearl Harbor! It is time we get serious & stop even considering such trash!
