For those of you who love to harp on what our ancestors did to the Natives...

I'm sorry, but the Conquistadors gave to the Inca and the Aztec what they truly deserved. These were blood thirsty empires who frequently sacrificed children and young women to their blood god for good fortune. Cortes and Pizarro are freaking heroes in my book, despite their personal flaws.

Yeah... cause it's the Aztecs and the Spainish they are talking about.

For fricks sake.

I'm not arguing one way or the other, but this point makes zero sense.

Pretty much Everyone back then was brutal and nasty. And if you were more peaceful, It’s only because generations back you’d managed to wipe out the other violent peoples in the area, and other tribes hadn’t come attacking you yet,

Same as the entire world over

File this under “things only an Incan would care about”.

Natives? What natives? There are no natives to the American continents.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee had the most historically accurate movie dialogue in history.

You can’t really believe that Europe in the Middle Ages was anything like this.

All those idiots like Elizabreth Warren. White as snow but go around bragging, "I have Stone Ager blood in me. Yep! My ancestors did not progress one bit until Whitey showed up and killed all off."

They are the White equivalent of the "we wuz kangz" crowd.

Carlin did a piece on this in one of his podcasts where he described the Europeans coming to America to a pride of lions that had been hardened and battle tested on the Serengeti finding a mountain pass that opened up to an entire continent of labs, sheep, and the equivalent of a dog that had never truly been challenged.

I thought it was apt.

The other non Aztec people in the area were not sad to see the Aztecs obliterated . They worked with the Spanish.

Well they (Democrats) love their groups. They peddle the “BIPOC” acronym, so yes, Aztecs would be included in that.

Didn't they dig your heart out through your stomach? I didn't think beheading was their thing.
