No thanks

To Squanto and the Wampanoag tribe, or God, or Mother Nature — to whomever Americans give thanks today — I say, “No thanks.” I wish you had sent them back where they came from with a message that their guns, their God, their diseases, and their theories of property and dominion are not welcome in this world. Instead, you opened your arms and shared the secrets of the land with those who would, in turn, wipe out your peoples and pillage your lands. For that I am not grateful. I am sorry.
