ACLU of Virginia Tweets “You Are On Native Land” For Some Reason

ACLU of Virginia Tweets “You Are On Native Land” For Some Reason

The people of Twitter responded with humor, facts, and . . . of course, some leftie whining.

I confess that I have zero idea what’s up with the radical left’s bizarre fixation on “native land.” I could venture a guess, of course, but why bother? Nothing they say or do makes much logical—or historical—sense.

For example, there are some 355 million people in the United States, of those approximately 5.2 million are Native American or Alaskan Natives. Leaving alone the complex early interactions between the British (and later, Americans) and the various native populations, what possible recourse is there at this point in history? Where do 350 million people go? Would Native Americans and Alaskans even want to live in the vastness of the U.S. completely alone?  Are we supposed to pay reparations? If so, to whom (and for what)?  It’s all most strange and nonsensical.

And it’s not just Occupy and CHAZ weirdos shouting about “native land.” The ACLU of Virginia got in on the crazy (archive link).

As usual, the people of Twitter responded with humor, facts, and . . . of course, some leftie whining.

The ACLU used to protect civil liberties, but they gave up on that some time ago and just focus on pimping the most radical leftist ideology they can find and/or dream up. It’s kind of sad to see how far they have fallen.

Good news for the ACLU and all the other commenters at Twitter: they won’t get banned by the current Twitter management.

This is how Twitter is supposed to work: somebody tweets something breathtakingly stupid, after which a bunch of other people pile on, and we all have a good laugh at the expense of the original Tweeter.

And they took the land from someone

Then that someone took the land from someone

Then that someone took the land from someone

Then that someone took the land from someone

Then that someone took the land from someone

Then that someone took the land from someone

and on and on it went until someone brought the firewater

Where was the ACLU during the COVID fiasco? Where were they when people were being coerced into taking experimental shots? Where were they when our government was forcing people to take unscientific measures like wearing masks to prevent the spread of a respiratory virus?

Where were they when we needed them?

Why have they come back with something trivial and ahistorical?

    Then where was the ACLJ?

    The Pacific Legal Foundation?

    Institute for Justice?

      Hey, Institute of Justice was trucking, as always.
      Unlike ACLU, which claims to do every liberty for everybody (and fails), IJ’s charter requires cases to be in one of four categories: economic liberty, private property rights, school choice, or free speech. (Much as I’d like to see them winning gun cases for us, they won’t take them.)
      During COVID, they were busy litigating on behalf of doctors whose governments (notably DC and NY) would not let them offer tele-health services or doctor-dispensing of medications; on behalf of school parents being denied legislated school-choice benefits due to teacher union objections; against the qualified immunity of federal guards that unjustly savaged a day patient at a VA Hospital; and on behalf of innocent depositors robbed by the FBI itself at US Private Vaults.

    Where was the ACLU? They were right there with the Government enforcing Democrat proclamations with glee.

    “Where was the ACLU during the COVID fiasco?”
    They were arguing to SCOTUS that “limiting where and why people can carry guns in NY is reasonable way for NY to protect First Amendment interests.” (This is a direct quote from an ACLU attorney.)
    They were using COVID as an excuse to argue for early release for inmates in Maricopa County jails.
    And embarrassingly, they were coming to the defense of Project Veritas on the Ashley Biden diary raid incident, without trying to look like they had ever shared a common country contemporaneously.

Every single one of eight billion human beings alive today is on land that used to belong to someone else. So what?

    gospace in reply to McGehee. | November 27, 2022 at 6:11 pm

    Very true. And for most of us Americans, living in a nation that has enforceable property rights, we buy and sell land all the time. Walk right away from someplace we used to own and never look back and say “That belongs to our family- some day we’ll get it back!” A large part of Israel was sold to Jewish settlers. And the Palestinians of today- who have never set foot in Israel, are demanding their property that they have never set foot on be returned to them….

    That’s actually a problem that exists in much of Europe where land has sometimes been taken by just brute force, just because, sometimes because of debts, sometimes because inhabitants fled ahead of an invasion, and lost their land by default because the invaders took it, etc.

    The early American settlers were looking at mostly empty uninhabited undeveloped land when they arrived here. They didn’t fight for the land they occupied, they simply squatted on it.

Since they’re sticking with the old name, can we sue The American Social Justice League for fraud?

They live in stolen authority, in a hijacked institution. What are just reparations for that/

The so called Native Americans owned nothing

    And in the end they weren’t very happy about it.

    henrybowman in reply to Steven Brizel. | November 27, 2022 at 7:10 pm

    This.
    Which also answers:
    “I confess that I have zero idea what’s up with the radical left’s bizarre fixation on “native land.”
    Well, before you can “be happy,” first you have to “own nothing.” Isn’t that the formula?
    So this is just part of the setup for the final punchline.

The ACLU has been a joke for years now.

My beautiful wife is a proud descendant of the 5 Civilized Tribes. She thinks the ACLU is an opportunistic cabal of lying communists.

I’m a pastey white European Christianista with a horribly Prussian surname. I think communists should be tossed out of helicopters, so my wife and I get along famously.

    Whitewall in reply to LB1901. | November 27, 2022 at 1:55 pm

    Yep,
    Atheists, Communists, Liberals, Undesirables.

      The Gentle Grizzly in reply to Whitewall. | November 27, 2022 at 2:02 pm

      Prussian: I’m an atheist, but not the one screaming “THERE IS NO GOD1” or being part of FFRF. I just never found any of the legends / stories / whatever to make any sense. Other folks have beliefs and I respect them; I oppose none of it unless they use those beliefs as am excuse to do me harm.

      You want to toss me from that helicopter as well? You’d make a great Muslim,

        The Gentle Grizzly in reply to The Gentle Grizzly. | November 27, 2022 at 2:08 pm

        I meant Whitewall. (If you get any downticks, none are mine.)

        It gets way too complicated when you throw in that wokeness is a religion; TDS and Branch Covidianism are phobias; and your “common-sense aunt” doesn’t help by tossing inanities into the pot like, “no one has the right to destroy another person’s belief by demanding empirical evidence” (Ann Landers). Remaining rationalists simply throw up our hands and promise not to ask if you don’t insist on telling.

The Indians can always go back to Siberia.

    Paula in reply to rhhardin. | November 27, 2022 at 3:02 pm

    You mean I’m not a native? I don’t belong here?

    “That is correct. Anywhere our ancestors placed their feet belongs to us.”

    Shit. I can’t even go to the moon. The descendants of Neil Armstrong claim they’re natives.

    Paula in reply to rhhardin. | November 27, 2022 at 3:04 pm

    I don’t think Indians can go back to Siberia. I heard Siberia was owned by Huskies.

Thomas Sowell’s book, Conquests and Cultures, exposes the simplistic thinking of the communists at the ACLU. I recommend it to anyone.

You are on God’s land.

Psalm 24:1 – The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world, and all that dwell in it.

We’re all in deep sh!t if ever He decides to repossess it.

Indigenous 2.0… 3.0… X.0 Native is a jurisdictional quality.

Proposed LIF land acknowledgement: This server occupies land that originally belong to indigenous people. To the extent that telecommunications pass over, under or through native lands such activity is incompatible with ancient indigenous customs. While we have not intention to pay a second time for the acquisition of indigenous lands that occurred in the 18th and 19th centuries, we feel moral superiority by making this land acknowledgement.

When the membership of the ACLU give their own personal property to some “natives”, only then will you know they believe their own propaganda.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Aarradin. | November 27, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    They will get some rich, unnamed donor to gift them capital (money, land, etc.). Then, they will claim that they gave it away themselves to IP.

    This is a pretty consistent formula for non-profit propagandists.

“There are over 20 tribe’s in Virginia. Which one does the ACLU pay reparations to for being on their land? Or do you give to all of them?”

Hey, you made this an issue, not me; and it’s not my job to do the homework you put in front of yourself.

Britain-More specifically England-More specifically the England shaped by the heir of William the Conqueror-More specifically the England built by the Anglo-Saxons who conquered and destroyed Roman Britain-More specifically the…….

Everywhere used to belong to someone else.

The ACLU is a sham organization, pandering to narcissistic ignoramuses like Hollywood and NY limo lib types. Communism has always been the goal:

“The ACLU is…working daily in courts, legislatures and communities. Communism is the goal.”

Like all Leftists the
American
Criminal
Lobby
Union
is about control. Somehow they anointed themselves as champions of our Indians. They moved on from renaming sports franchises to real estate brokerage.

I speak on behalf of the many species that went extinct JUST as the Indians arrived: mammoths, smilodons, giant sloths. This was THEIR land. Why privilege human land titles?

“Native American” applies to everyone who was born in America. I was born in the United States and so am a Native American.

The current American Indians, who were here when the Dutch and English and Spanish and … settlers arrived were the third group to live in North America. The first two groups came and eventually moved south. The earliest came around 16,000 years ago. See this article about research in Idaho (Cooper’s Ferry) on them:
https://www.smithsonianmag.com/smart-news/idaho-site-shows-humans-were-north-america-16000-years-ago-180973024/
And this scientific paper referenced in the article:
https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.aax9830
All three groups came from elsewhere. None of them originated in North America. So they are no more Native American than all of us born in America.

My family has been here for over 250yrs and intermarried with Abenakis. When is the ACLU going to send me a check for something or other? They are occupying Unkechaug land, when are they going to turn over their luxury digs in Manhattan to them? Reparations for thee but not for me

    Exactly. This is about gutting the middle class. Only when there is extreme poverty, mass starvation, and all the associated ills will the American people beg the federal government for assistance. They need us to willingly submit (or become violent) to gain true control.

My Grandfather who died many years ago was half Native American. I never met his mother. He was from Arizona but grew up outside Tucson. My parents were from Arizona but moved to Los Angeles.

The history is that tribes fought each other for areas and slaves. When Europeans came in they fought tribes and other Europeans to get land, and then brought in slaves of whites and blacks. Later the USA was formed through the Revolutionary War and the expansion of the the USA was started.

All through the expansion of the USA the tribes fought each other and the USA. The Civil War ended slaves by the US government but not by the tribes. The ending of tribe’s slaves ended when the USA took them over.

If the ACLU thinks that we should give up land for tribes, then all people that are part of the ACLU should immediately turn over their property and any funds to the closest tribe to their land, and no longer mention it. The rest of the people that do not feel that way should keep their property and funds.
