President Andrew Jackson and the Washington Redskins

President assJack is the name I prefer, by the way.

That should tell you the tenor of the rest of this post...

The first of so many honored, revered Democratic Presidents, who was/is deeply racist; So dear to the Democrats, that this asshole-racist is portraited on the American $20 bill.  The '20', because Andrew Jackson was two-faced.
And President Jackson was/is the immoral, racial imprint by which all Democrats comduct themselves.


Finally, the westward movement was not only reserved for pioneers. Native Americans were moving west as well — and not because they wanted to. Andrew Jackson had initiated an Indian removal policy that forced all natives to relocate west of the Mississippi River. Indian lands were open to settlers and land speculators. Thus began another sad chapter in the federal government's dealings with Native Americans.

The Indian Removal policy of President Andrew Jackson was prompted by the desire of white settlers in the South to expand into lands belonging to five Indian tribes. After Jackson succeeded in pushing the Indian Removal Act through Congress in 1830, the U.S. government spent nearly 30 years forcing Indians to move westward, beyond the Mississippi River.The Indian Removal policy of President Andrew Jackson was prompted by the desire of white settlers in the South to expand into lands belonging to five Indian tribes.

Facts About  Andrew Jackson:
Jackson was racist and sexist
He also believed that the earth was flat
Jackson was the only President
to pay off the national debt
On January 30, 1835, a mentally disturbed man named Richard Lawrence fired two different guns at Jackson from point-blank range. Both weapons failed to fire. The odds of this happening were put at 1:125,000. Jackson then chased after Lawrence and beat him with his cane
At his funeral in 1845, his pet parrot had to be removed because it was swearing.

From PBS, this F***ing UGLY tribute to Democrat Andrew Jackson:

"Early in the 19th century, while the rapidly-growing United States expanded into the lower South, white settlers faced what they considered an obstacle'. 
This area was home to the Cherokee, Creek, Choctaw, Chicasaw and  Seminole nations. These proud Indian nations, in the view of the settlers and many other white Americans, were standing in the way of progress. Eager for land to raise cotton, the settlers pressured the federal government to acquire Indian territory.

Andrew Jackson, from Tennessee, was a forceful proponent of Indian removal. In 1814 he commanded the U.S. military forces that defeated a faction of the Creek nation. In their defeat, the Creeks lost 22 million acres of land in southern Georgia and central Alabama. The U.S. acquired more land in 1818 when, spurred in part by the motivation to punish the Seminoles for their practice of harboring fugitive slaves, Jackson's troops invaded Spanish Florida.

From 1814 to 1824, Jackson was instrumental in negotiating nine out of eleven treaties (one of which my presumed ancestor, Choctaw Chief Pushmataha participated in Washington, D.C.) which divested the southern tribes of their eastern lands in exchange for lands in the west. The tribes agreed to the treaties for strategic reasons. They wanted to appease the government in the hopes of retaining some of their land, and they wanted to protect themselves from white harassment. As a result of the treaties, the United States gained control over three-quarters of Alabama and Florida, as well as parts of Georgia, Tennessee, Mississippi, Kentucky and North Carolina. This was a period of voluntary Indian migration, however, and only a small number of Creeks, Cherokee and Choctaws actually moved to the new lands.

(Thank you, God, my Great-great Grandfather John Malcontent, an eight-year-old orphan Choctaw boy,
also walked the "Trail of Tears" to present-day Oklahoma)

In 1823 the Supreme Court handed down a decision which stated that Indians could occupy lands within the United States, but could not hold title to those lands. This was because their "right of occupancy" was subordinate to the United States' "right of discovery."

Now, read this next part TWICE, THRICE:

Although the five Indian nations had made earlier attempts at resistance, many of their strategies were non-violent. One method was to adopt Anglo-American practices such as large-scale farming, Western education, and slave-holding. This earned the nations the designation of the "Five Civilized Tribes." They adopted this policy of assimilation in an attempt to coexist with settlers and ward off hostility. But it only made whites jealous and resentful....
Other attempts involved ceding portions of their land to the United States with a view to retaining control over at least part of their territory, or of the new territory they received in exchange. Some Indian nations simply refused to leave their land -- the Creeks and the Seminoles even waged war to protect their territory. The First Seminole War lasted from 1817 to 1818. The Seminoles were aided by fugitive slaves who had found protection among them and had been living with them for years. The presence of the fugitives enraged white planters and fueled their desire to defeat the Seminoles.
(President) Jackson's attitude toward Native Americans was paternalistic and patronizing -- he described them as 'children in need of guidance'. and believed the removal policy was beneficial to the Indians. Most white Americans thought that the United States would never extend beyond the Mississippi. Removal would save Indian people from the depredations of whites, and would resettle them in an area where they could govern themselves in peace.
Their (Native) protests did not save the southeastern nations from removal, however. The Choctaw were the first to sign a removal treaty, in September of 1830. 

Some chose to stay in Mississippi under the terms of the Removal Act. (T)hough the War Department made some attempts to protect those Choctaw who stayed, it was no match for the land-hungry Whites who squatted on Choctaw territory or cheated them out of their holdings. Soon most of the remaining Choctaws, weary of mistreatment, sold their land and moved west. Democrats Throughout American History, Have Been Asshole Bastards.

 For the next 28 years, the United States government struggled to force relocation of the southeastern Indian nations. A small group of Seminoles was coerced into signing a removal treaty in 1833, but the majority of the tribe declared the treaty illegitimate and refused to leave. The resulting struggle was the Second Seminole War, which lasted from 1835 to 1842. As in the first war, fugitive slaves fought beside the Seminoles who had taken them in. Thousands of lives were lost in the war, which cost the Jackson administration approximately 40 to 60 million dollars -- ten times the amount it had allotted for Indian removal. In the end, most of the Seminoles moved to the new territory. The few who remained had to defend themselves in the Third Seminole War (1855-58), when the U.S. military attempted to drive them out. Finally, the United States paid the remaining Seminoles to move west.
Creeks also refused to emigrate. They signed a treaty in March, 1832, which opened a large portion of their Alabama land to white settlement, but guaranteed them protected ownership of the remaining portion, which was divided "among the leading families".
The government did not protect them from speculators, however, who quickly cheated them out of their lands.
By 1835 the destitute Creeks began stealing livestock and crops from white settlers. Some eventually committed arson and murder in retaliation for their brutal treatment. In 1836 the Secretary of War ordered the removal of the Creeks as a military necessity. By 1837, approximately 15,000 Creeks had migrated west. They had never signed a removal treaty.
The Chickasaw had seen removal as inevitable, and had not resisted. 
They signed a treaty in 1832 which stated that the federal government would provide them with suitable western land and would protect them until they moved. But once again, the onslaught of white settlers proved too much for the War Department, and it backed down on its promise.  The Chickasaws were forced to pay the Choctaws for the right to live on part of their western allotment. They migrated there in the winter of 1837-38.
The Cherokee, on the other hand, were tricked with an illegitimate treaty. In 1833, a small faction agreed to sign a removal agreement: the Treaty of New Echota. 
The leaders of this group were not the recognized leaders of the Cherokee nation, and over 15,000 Cherokees -- led by Chief John Ross -- signed a petition in protest. The Supreme Court ignored their demands and ratified the treaty in 1836. The Cherokee were given two years to migrate voluntarily, at the end of which time they would be forcibly removed. By 1838 only 2,000 had migrated; 16,000 remained on their land. The U.S. government sent in 7,000 troops, who forced the Cherokees into stockades at bayonet point. They were not allowed time to gather their belongings, and as they left, whites looted their homes.
By 1837, the Andrew Jackson administration had removed 46,000 Native American people from their land east of the Mississippi, and had secured treaties which led to the removal of a slightly larger number. Most members of the five southeastern nations had been relocated west, opening 25 million acres of land to white settlement and to slavery.
Who is this Leading, Racist, Oppressive, Democratic President Andrew Jackson?

Well, here is the Racist, 

Democrat Sonofabitch, Prez. Jackson:

I'm very offended by this Piece Of S.currancy,
for all the above abominable actions against a Minority.
Now, let's discuss the "Washington Redskins", ok?
How can White, bedwetting Liberals tell what Us Indians think is offensive, considering their piss-poor history? Are they once again,
trying to tell Us Indians what to think, what to believe?
History tells one true story;
Cry-baby Democratic wankers try telling us another.

The once-great Oneida tribe of western New York is the tiny Indian Tribe registering a complaint against the NFL's Washington Redskins team.

Nearly all Indian tribes endorse, LIKE having a hard charging, tough football team named after us.  Nearly all, except the Spoon tribe.

The name 'Oneida' reminds any average American Indian, these days, of Spoons.

The Spoons.  The Spoon-Tribe of New York wants to command the rest of us far, far more masculine, aggressive Native Americans, to demand a name change for a football team.
Maybe the Oneida Tribe would suggest "The Washington Spoons"?
Perhaps the "Washington Concaves"? to reflect the flaccid, submissive nature of all Oneida men?

That is what this Alpha-Chahta-Male thinks...

Perhaps there is some Oneida history that disputes my claim/research? I haven't found any, except that the Oneida beat-off some Frenchmen once..??

{incidently, F-U Christopher Columbus, today}

I hate having $20 bills in my possession, because of assJack's treatment of Indians.
I prefer $10s or $50s, but usually I carry 1s or quarters these days, LOL

After this name thing happened, I meant to come in here and ask you what you thought, then figured it might be a sensitive subject. Loved the last bit about the name, already knew how you felt about Jackson. "Funny" the things they don't teach in history books, huh?

Anyway, the name doesn't really bother me b/c I'm not all PC, although I used to like to bring it up w/ the Washington fans that would come in and troll the Cowboys forums I used to frequent. The way I see it, it isn't any more racist than referring to someone as "white" or "black" because when someone is described as that, it's a reference to their skin color, right? I remember G.H.W. Bush getting into some trouble for lovingly describing some of his grandchildren as "the little brown ones". As I said, though, I'm not of "Hispanic" descent, so maybe I SHOULD have been offended, I dunno. I do know I WAS offended when Bush Sr. said he didn't like broccoli. Man, I love that stuff. -grin-
