The Landed Idiocracy: Interior Dept. Officials Issue “Land Acknowledgements” and Relate Their “Pronouns”
by Selwyn Duke April 18, 2021
Call it the Department of the Inferior. For this may be appropriate after Department of the Interior employees were seen beginning a Zoom meeting with “land acknowledgements” and the relation of “their” pronouns.
Appearing first in video of the meeting, which took place recently, is Laura Daniel-Davis, principal deputy assistant for land and mineral management. Obviously reading a prepared statement, she said, “[I] recognize that I live and work within the ancestral lands of the Anacostans in the Anacostia and Potomac River watershed. I acknowledge the place-based knowledge of these peoples, and I’m grateful for their ancestral and current stewardship of these lands.”
Huh? Do the Anacostans today really have more “place-based” knowledge of Washington, D.C., than any other locals? And if they’re the current stewards of the land, why do we need the Department of the Interior (DotI)?
“My pronouns are ‘she,’ ‘her,’” Daniel-Davis then informed us.
Next was Nada Culver, a climate-change alarmist and the DotI’s deputy director of policy and programs. “My pronouns are ‘she’ and ‘her,’” she announced. “And I recognize that I live and work within the ancestral lands of the Cheyenne and Ute people,” she continued, not seeming too excited. “I acknowledge the place-based knowledge of these people, and I’m grateful for their ancestral and current stewardship of these lands.”
Last was Amanda Lefton, the director of the Bureau of Ocean and Energy Management. Her pronouns also are “she” and “her,” and, you guessed it, except for the Indian tribes cited — her task was to throw a bone to the “Haudenosaunee” (Iroquois) and Mohicans — her acknowledgement was a carbon copy of the first two (video below).
You may suspect that these women were merely performing job-preserving, woke rituals. Yet they then had too many “shes” and “hers.” They should consider “zie” and “zir” instead; embracing them could win a promotion.
Then, were their mouthed acknowledgements satisfactory? Not according to Michigan State University’s “Native American Institute.”
“There are hundreds of Indigenous communities across the United States,” it writes. “Giving a land acknowledgement requires research and reflection to understand the historical and contemporary Indigenous communities having a relationship with the land.”
The institute then emphasizes a few sentences later, “Although land acknowledgements are powerful statements, they are only meaningful when they are coupled with authentic and sustained relationships with Indigenous communities and community-informed actions.”
(Reading a prepared statement rote-style doesn’t qualify.) So you have much work ahead of you, DotI ladies.
But much more can be said here. First of all, sexual devolutionary snowflakes, you don’t have pronouns.
Our language has pronouns.
And you don’t get to “re-imagine” English because you’ve fallen for a fad (not if sane people prevail, anyway).
As for “land acknowledgements,” I won’t rehash what I wrote on the topic in February except to say that all nations are built on “indigenous” land, American Indians “stole” real estate from each other, and that Europe also was forged from conquered tribes (e.g., Alans, Goths, Marcomanni). Instead, I’ll point out that what we really need today is a Western Civilization Acknowledgement. It would go something like this:
I recognize that I live and work in a land birthed by Western Civilization. I acknowledge the place-creating knowledge and knowhow of Western people, and I’m grateful they bequeathed to me world history’s greatest civilization. I’m also grateful for the unprecedented prosperity, human rights, just liberties, and knowledge of Truth that their tireless endeavors ensured I could enjoy.
Yet even this would be missing the point. Question: When you consider this giving of thanks that is a land acknowledgement, of what does it remind you? What could it be taking the place of?
In keeping with G.K. Chesterton’s observation “Thanks are the highest form of thought,” people surely are happier when they’re grateful. History also teaches that man has a need to unburden himself of sin. Yet these needs were in saner times satisfied the only way they can be: by giving thanks to God and asking His forgiveness.
Yet in this secular age in which people essentially embrace the Protagorean notion “Man is the measure of all things,” man is the focus. So the guilt-ridden can only give thanks to other people, or things (e.g., “nature”), and ask their forgiveness.
Ergo, land acknowledgements.
And, ergo, the BLM-brainwashed white Americans who’d get on their knees before their black countrymen and ask for pardon.
We should spend some time on our knees, but only before God. When you bow to other men you always, one way or another and eventually, end up bowing to tyranny.
Author's note at the end of each post: -"Your biggest problem is so small for such a big God"-Ella Cruz" The Bible serves as the blueprint of faith, and the New Testament provides us with God's faith and the power to perform miracles through faith and the name of Jesus. Regardless of the severity of cancer, healing can be achieved through faith in God's word. When Jesus raised the dead, he did not discriminate based on the level of death. He simply called forth life. Let's explore how he did it. The first time Jesus brought someone back from the dead was the daughter of Jairus, an official in Jerusalem. Although she had passed away, she was only recently deceased. The second time was the son of a widow in Nain who had been dead for just one day. Lastly, Jesus raised Lazarus, the brother of Mary and Martha in Bethany, who had been dead for three days. He raised them all. No matter how insurmountable your problem may seem, Jesus is the resurrection and the light. Ella Cruz World's events are happening so fast. Global Governance 2015, Agenda 2030, Agenda 2050, Antarctica, Mars, CERN, G5, The United Nations, The European Union, the Club of Rome, and the false prophets of the Vatican all together, we see that the satanic global government is imminent, and it shall come to pass. The mark of the beast will be obligatory. You are either a Christian or not. If you are, you believe this because it is predicted 2000 years ago in the Bible. But if you are not a Christian, you read the news and notice that the satanic world government is their agenda. Their Global Governance 2025 is terribly close. Their Green New Deal 12-year timeline matches the agenda 2030. We have a short time to prepare ourselves. Born-again Christians are happy and calm. Why? Why do we joyfully dedicate ourselves to the nation, knowing that we will be chased and prosecuted? Because we are dedicated to the Kingdom. "Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done." 1. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of the Living God. 2. We hold the Bible as the divinely inspired Word of God. 3. We believe that God loved us so much that He sent His only begotten Son to die on the cross for our sins. Through His precious blood, all our sins are washed away and forgiven. 4. We believe that the price for our salvation, health, prosperity, happiness, and eternal life has been paid by the blood of Jesus. These gifts are freely available to us through the grace of God. By His stripes, we were healed 2000 years ago. 5. We acknowledge that by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we open our hearts to the Holy Spirit. We are baptized by the Holy Spirit, who dwells within us and communicates with us through dreams, visions, speeches, videos, books, and other means. This communication begins immediately after our salvation. 6. We firmly believe that Jesus Christ remains the same yesterday, today, and forever. As born-again believers, we receive the same DNA as Jesus Christ, with the same miraculous abilities through faith. Just as the apostles performed signs and wonders like Jesus, we too can accomplish these miracles through faith, and the Lord will work through us. 7. We condemn the Vatican's religion and many false prophets who have deceived Christians for centuries, hiding the true message of the Bible and the Good News from people to maintain their power. We welcome all denominations and strive for unity in the body of Christ. 8. We believe that a born-again Christian never truly dies. When a believer's life on earth ends, they are promoted to heaven, and death holds no power over them. In heaven, we experience immense joy, love, peace, and the glory of God. Those who have had near-death experiences or have seen Jesus in a vision or dream know the indescribable relief and joy of being in His presence. To answer the question of why we are happy, we say that we could happily die at any moment. In fact, we long to go home and be with our Lord. However, we know that each one of us has a mission and purpose revealed to us by the Holy Spirit after our born-again experience. For the sake of fulfilling that mission, we remain joyful and relaxed in the spirit, knowing that we are called to save people by preaching the Gospel and bringing them to Jesus. To be born again, you just need to say: Lord Jesus, I accept you as my personal savior, Come to my heart, Forgive my sins, Wash me away, Make me a new person, And live inside of me. In the Name of Jesus from Nazareth, Amen. And that's it. You are saved! Jesus will reveal Himself to you, and your life will undergo a significant transformation. Your marriage, health (especially addiction), finances, and all areas of your life will experience an extraordinary change. And never look back. In Jesus Almighty name. Amen.
