Giago: Tea Party Republicans are not patriots

Tim Giago has been the editor and publisher of Native Sun News. He was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard with the Class of 1991 and the first American Indian inducted into the South Dakota Newspaper Hall of Fame.
The American Indians of 1773 had every right to fear the consequences of that tea-dumping party that night in the Boston Harbor. An entire village of Indians that had converted to Christianity was massacred and burned alive by American patriots seeking revenge for the actions of a few renegade Indians. They were called the “Praying Indians” and they became prey to the patriots because they didn’t know one Indian from another and so they murdered the Indians that were available.

      “Some chemicals, like those that disrupt the endocrine system, present a concern because they interfere with the activity of endogenous hormones that are essential for healthy brain development,” they explain. “Endocrine-disrupting chemicals (EDCs) include many pesticides, flame retardants, fuels, and plasticizers. One class of EDCs that is ubiquitous in consumer products are the phthalates. These are an emerging concern for interference with brain development.” MinnPost

  2. Jason Ravensborg is a dumbass that is trying so desperately to be taken seriously. I'd hate to be the Army Reserve unit especially enlisted that is stuck with this idiot. There are some really good officers and Jason I fear perfectly fits the stereotype of a really bad officer who I hope is never in command in a combat situation.

    1. Ravnsborg is just like Cory Heidelberger: another short guy compensating by being loud and prejudicial.

  3. Heidelberger? The guy with the God Complex who will throw anyone under the bus to advance himself? He will say anything to get elected.

    1. His cosmic comeuppance is already written and just waiting to be delivered. He could even sink his wife's career and both be driven out of South Dakota.
