Columbus Day, Bloody Columbus Day

I thought I would remind everyone, on this eve of an unfit "holiday", that this country's entire history began and moved forward, with the rape, murder and annihilation of entire tribes of native peoples. With another bloody holiday around the corner in the form of "Thanksgiving", you should remember this: go hug a Native American and say you're sorry!

Run to the Hills


White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills run for your lives
Run to the hills run for your lives

Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills run for your lives
