Thread on the #SupremeCourt #Oklahoma #CreekNation McGirt v. Oklahoma ruling today, because prior posts were made on my phone at work and therefore lacking.

This also provides a bit of Oklahoma history, by necessity.

To begin with: this is Oklahoma. Image
Once upon a time, Andrew Jackson and other Presidents forced the removal of Native Americans into what was once called Indian Territory.

The territory was split roughly among the first several tribes to be removed here, with more being packed in later as the US moved West. Image
Eventually, a man named Standing Bear tipped a line of dominoes that resulted in the more specific and defined apportionment of land in this territory.

And gosh, wouldn't you know it, some lands just ended up "Unassigned." So mostly-white people flooded into them and spread out. Image

here is a map of the 1978 recognized tribal areas

This should give U a taste of what the US Supreme Court is proposing with their new Oklahoma ruling

#oklahoma #scotus #SupremeCourt #NativeAmerican #Native @michaeljknowles @stillgray @chadfelixg @charlescwcooke @davidharsanyi
Essentially, A HUGE portion of the United States is claimed or historically was tribal land as recognized by the federal government,

Now add virtually the rest of the country,
And U get the idea of what the Supreme Court's new principle could mean for the country at large
If you guys want the link to the map here it Is:

Protesters want #AndrewJackson's statue removed because he ordered the removal of an estimated 100,000 #indigenous people from eastern states. 15,000 died along the #TrailOfTears headed west. #native / thread britannica.com/event/Trail-of…
In Dec 1830, #AndrewJackson told Congress "Indian removal" was approaching its "happy consummation," moving "savages" west, freeing land between TN & LA for white settlement, & "reliev[ing]" Miss & western Alabama of "Indian occupancy."
"What good man would prefer" forests & "savages" to "our extensive Republic" occupied by 12 million "happy people" & filled w/ the "blessings of liberty, civilization & religion?" Jackson asked Congress in 1830.

The white supremacist's portrait hangs in the Oval Office.

⚡️Trump inicia el mitin en #Tulsa, Oklahoma.

La arena no está llena, a 2/3 de su capacidad cuando más, en una ciudad y estado con repunte de #COVID19, con las personas sin guardar distancia y la gran mayoría sin cubrebocas. Ni el presidente ni el VP lo han usado tampoco... Image
Afuera había un templete y se esperaba que Trump dirigiera unas palabras al exceso de gente que no pudiera entrar.

Quitaron el templete y no dirigió palabras porque no hubo exceso de gente que se quedara sin poder entrar.
6 miembros del equipo de campaña de Trump dieron positivo a #COVID19 horas antes del evento.

As we celebrate #Juneteenth, it is important to remember that not all slaves were freed on June 19th, 1865. In Indian Territory, Blck slaves continued to be owned by Chickasaw and Choctaw masters. They weren’t freed until 1866. #BlackLivesMatter (thread)
#Juneteenth is supposed to represent the day that all slaves in the United States were freed from bondage.
However, slaves in #IndianTerritory in present day #Oklahoma were exempt from the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments because they were owned by masters of separate sovereign nations. So they remained enslaved event after the 13th Amendment was passed.

When @RealDonaldTrump announced he would be holding a campaign rally on June 19 in #Tulsa, #Oklahoma, there was immediate backlash. #Juneteenth nbcnews.com/politics/congr…
Not only had the president chosen #Juneteenth - a day celebrating freedom and recognizing the resilience of enslaved people - but he also chose the city where a mob of white supremacists terrorized and killed Black people, destroying #BlackWallStreet in the 1921 #TulsaMassacre.
As our nation grapples with recent police killings of Black people and calls to address systemic racism and white supremacy culture in our society, @RealDonaldTrump was criticized for co-opting historically significant spaces for Black people for himself.

President Trump is holding a roundtable with Gov. Kevin Stitt of Indiana and Gov. Pete Ricketts of Nebraska to discuss efforts to support America's small businesses with @SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza on reopening America.

The Paycheck Protection Program (#PPP) has been a tremendous success for small businesses and the American workforce.

Fellow Vets,

There are white nationalists who have served in the military & hiding among active duty

Many have become radicalized by the WN ideology

It likely began with an ambiguous boogaloo "joke"

Or a 3% meeting

Or the perversion of an oath

There is a sickness growing
They are teaching "vet bros" to cosplay online as veterans

They disgrace OUR service by creating a false narrative that their online "service" is much more important

They seek to drown out ACTUAL veterans so that THEY can define patriotism

They are easy to recognize if you look...

They typically pose as SF, MI or CI
And use "security clearance" as the excuse for anonymity 🙄

They'll try to say that because of your MOS, that your service somehow counts less

They'll overuse "POG" or misspel acronyms
