Jesus, you are so clueless.
your right the article decided to not use the entire true story of wounded knee in order to push a narrative.
Thanks from Hashtag

The bodies were not even cold before the lizard queen jumped on her soapbox to interject her political opinion into the event? You know that "lady" that you guys keep accusing people of not letting go who constantly keeps herself in the spotlight.

Imagine that. An American interjecting her opinion. I mean.....who DOES THAT????

Yes, you are losing it and the last paragraph says it all. Pay attention.

"Many have argued this week and in the past that events like the Colfax Massacre and Wounded Knee are seen as separate because, within American history, the deaths of Native Americans and African Americans have not been seen the same as the deaths of white people — and that failing to specify "modern" history while talking about events like Las Vegas only underscores that idea by implying that earlier shootings don't count."

Again, if they are not using this government sanctioned mass murder as a springboard for the gun grabbers then why post it? Are they agreeing w/ the theory that the CIA did in fact shoot all of those people in Vegas?

But hey, thanks leftists for reiterating the point we have been trying to make. Now of you guys would study the actual subject of the artical instead of just absorbing a few talking points long enough to repeate until your next outrage we may be able to make some progress.

You are correct, Sabcat. They weren't rogue.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee by Dee Brown.

https://www.enotes.com/topics/bury-heart-wounded-knee

In Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, historian Dee Brown uses the massacre at Wounded Knee Creek as a backdrop for his examination of race relations between whites and Native Americans. He details many of the atrocities the Native Americans suffered during the genocide against them and points out the relatively few moments when whites attempted to live peacefully with them.

The last two chapters are a fitting conclusion to a fascinating and disturbing story. Brown describes the Ghost Dance, a ritual attributed to Wovoka, a Paiute from Nevada. The dance was supposed to bring back dead Indians and the buffalo and eliminate whites from Indian lands. Sitting Bull of the Sioux, after years of Canadian exile, imprisonment in the United States, and appearances as a feature in Buffalo Billís Wild West Show, became an advocate of the Ghost Dance. Growing despair among the Sioux intensified interest in the dance and led to Sitting Bullís death on December 15, 1890.

In the confusion that followed Sitting Bullís death, one group of his followers joined Big Foot, also a Ghost Dance advocate. On December 28, Big Footís group was taken into custody by the U.S. Army and forced to camp along Wounded Knee Creek in southwestern South Dakota. The next day, as the Sioux were being disarmed, a minor incident involving one deaf warrior led to the massacre of the Sioux by the soldiers. Of about 350 people in the group, 51 wounded were left to be taken to the Pine Ridge Sioux Agency.

Careful, Sab. Your subversive, insurgent (OMG. Did they name the Divergent series after you??) mindset is showing. Sometimes (and I know this will come as a shock) something IS what it IS--no hidden message---no conspiracy---no subtlety---no symbolism.

The media has been reporting the Vegas shooting as the worst mass shooting in the history of this country. NOT TRUE. Period.

Hope this doesn't shatter you??
