The Largest Mass Shooting in US History

Native American losses include civilian casualties:

150-300 killed:
90 men killed
200 women and children killed
51 wounded (7 fatally)

On the morning of December 29, the troops went into the camp to disarm the Lakota. One version of events claims that during the process of disarming the Lakota, a deaf tribesman named Black Coyote was reluctant to give up his rifle, claiming he had paid a lot for it.[7] A scuffle over the rifle escalated, and a shot was fired which resulted in the 7th Cavalry opening fire indiscriminately from all sides, killing men, women, and children, as well as some of their fellow soldiers. The Lakota warriors who still had weapons began shooting back at the attacking soldiers, who quickly suppressed the Lakota fire. The surviving Lakota fled, but cavalrymen pursued and killed many who were unarmed.

By the time it was over, more than 200 men, women, and children of the Lakota had been killed and 51 were wounded (4 men and 47 women and children, some of whom died later); some estimates placed the number of dead at 300.[4] Twenty-five soldiers also died, and 39 were wounded (6 of the wounded later died).[8] At least twenty soldiers were awarded the Medal of Honor.[9] In 2001, the National Congress of American Indians passed two resolutions condemning the awards and called on the U.S. government to rescind them.[10] The site of the battlefield has been designated a National Historic Landmark.[5]

To this day it amazes me of two political beliefs that Alaska Natives seem to hold (though anecdotal):

1. Natives support open borders

2. Natives support gun confiscation

While, I have talked to many Alaska Natives who don't support the above issues, they do overwhelmingly support:

3. Government

You may love America (as I do) and still understand the Historical Contexts that the US Government hasn't been particularly kind to the American Natives. Nor kind to other groups that threatened their power structure (the Confederate South). This isn't a new concept nor unique to America, All governments hate their rebellious citizens. 

It challenges my critical thinking then, trying to understand WHY Alaska Natives (in particular) constantly vote for the Left? WHY they constantly vote for bigger government? WHY they want the government to make laws that will ultimately harm them? WHY vote for people that want to kill you with their policies?

Do you read about Wounded Knee and just ignore it? Do you think it was a one off and that the public didn't support this mass murder?

The American public's reaction to the massacre at the time was generally favorable. Many non-Lakota living near the reservations interpreted the battle as the defeat of a murderous cult; others confused Ghost Dancers with Native Americans in general. In an editorial response to the event, the young newspaper editor L. Frank Baum, later the author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, wrote in the Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer on January 3, 1891:

The Pioneer has before declared that our only safety depends upon the total extermination of the Indians. Having wronged them for centuries, we had better, in order to protect our civilization, follow it up by one more wrong and wipe these untamed and untamable creatures from the face of the earth. In this lies future safety for our settlers and the soldiers who are under incompetent commands. Otherwise, we may expect future years to be as full of trouble with the redskins as those have been in the past.

The current left, which supports gun confiscation would be just as favorable to the idea of mass genocide of Gun Owners today because they see ALL gun owners as threats to them and threats to the system. Just as the American population--at the time--saw the American Natives as a threat to them and the system.

Nothing has really changed.

The only power we as the people have to stop tyranny is having 2nd Amendment protections.

You may want to ignore history, however, history will always repeat and come for you either way regardless of your skin color:

Burial of the dead after the massacre of Wounded Knee. U.S. Soldiers putting Indians in common grave; some corpses are frozen in different positions. South Dakota.
