The utterly corrupt despots that comprise the United Nations have written a document regarding the "rights" of indigenous peoples to claim redress for "wrongs" that were committed against them at any time in the past by colonial nations. The US has wisely refused to sign on to this document but predictably, Obama had done just that. Essentially it opens the door for American Indians to sue the US government for reparations....
From FoxNews -- The non-binding U.N. document includes dozens of provisions but generally states that indigenous people should not be discriminated against, should be able to sustain their own political and social systems, and have rights to the "lands, territories and resources which they have traditionally owned" or used.
Several sections in the U.N. document explicitly outline those rights. One article in the middle of the declaration states that indigenous peoples can be entitled to "restitution" for land and resources that were damaged or confiscated from them. The document says compensation "shall take" the form of land or resources or even money.
So I guess that fact that Indians can operate casinos on reservation land isn't enough? For the social justice-minded minority classes, who blame colonialists or white-America in general for their failure to succeed in what was once the easiest country in the world in which to succeed, demonstrates the wrong-headedness of entitlement fever. Just because some ethnic groups such as native Americans have failed to thrive, choosing instead to cling to tribal living and alcoholism over assimilation, doesn't mean the smirking moonbat messiah can loot the public treasury and award these folks some of what others have earned.
Ask not for whom the moonbat messiah smirks, for he smirks at you!
