Obama Helping to Ban Historical Reenactments of 1889 Land Rush in Oklahoma Because it’s ‘Racist’

-By Warner Todd Huston

Once again the far, far leftists that infest our schools are making to destroy the teaching of American history. This time it is in Oklahoma, home to the 1889 “Land Rush” that helped settle the great western region of the country. The un-American leftists that run Oklahoma’s schools now want to excise the teaching of the Land Rush history in schools because it’s “racist.” And the Obama administration is also behind it.

The 1889 Land Rush is a key part of Oklahoma history and is one of the things it is most known for. If you are a little shaky on the history, in 1889 Oklahoma was still thought of as “Indian Territory” and few white settlements existed there. But in 1889 the government opened a few large sections of the soon-to-be state and after setting a day when those areas would be open for purchase, a race of sorts began to fill the territory with new settlers seeking land for homes, businesses and towns. It was quite a national spectacle at the time and is an important part of the state’s history.

Liberals Lose: FCC Rules That ‘Redskins’ Isn’t Profanity

-By Warner Todd Huston

Left-wing pushers of political correctness have been trying to find any legal thread to force the NFL’s Washington DC-based football team to stop using the name “Redskins,” a word that activists claim is “racist.” The left’s most recent attempt was to get the FCC to rule that “Redskins” was “profane” and so cannot be used on the air because it breaks profanity rules. But the FCC just ruled against the liberal’s effort to redefine the team name as a profanity.

Last week the FCC ruled against the liberal activist’s claims that “Redskins” was a profanity or was obscene saying that obscenity must “depict or describe sexual conduct.” The agency said that its definition of profanity is limited to “words that are sexual or excretory in nature.”

Media’s Disinterest in Abuse of American Indian Women in Boston

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Old Media is really showing its true colors last week by generally ignoring what is going on in the State of Massachusetts where four Cherokee woman have come to meet with Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren. The candidate is, of course, shunning the Cherokee representatives, but worse is the absence in the national media of news about this effort. Imagine, if you will, the national news cycle that would have been created if a Republican had been the subject of such a meeting of American Native Peoples, those claiming that the Republican was lying about his membership in their tribe?

All week this group of Cherokee women will be in Boston seeking an audience with Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren. They want to know why Warren continues to claim that she is related by blood to the Cherokee nation despite a complete and utter lack of any documentary proof of the claim.

Cherokee Twila Barnes, for one, is incensed at Warren’s false claims. In a recent interview Barnes scoffed at Warren’s late claims that her prevarication about her Indian blood is “not an issue.”

“Poverty, teen suicide, our health care system,” said Cherokee genealogist Twila Barnes in an interview today with the Herald. “Those are issues and those are the people she stepped on and used to benefit and now she says it’s not an issue. Well, of course, to her it’s not an issue because she doesn’t want to address that she did this.”

Barnes, a Cherokee genealogist, also told another Boston news outlet that Warren’s false claims are “offensive.”
