Our Country Back: Whose Land is it Anyway?

Shortly after January 20th 2009 (inauguration day for the 44th president) Fox News started providing a platform for "patriots" to scream and froth at the mouth about wanting their country back. While watching the spectacle with bemusement and sometimes with trepidation (assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons at public gatherings somehow don't reassure me), it's struck me that I haven't noticed any Native Americans screaming about wanting their land back.

Where are the Apaches, Cherokees, Lakotas, Ojibwes and Seminoles when the patriots come calling?

I really enjoyed this video from last November when Robert Erickson got Tea Partiers at a Minnesota rally to chant for the deportation of all European immigrants: "Columbus Go Home".

He's pulled a similar stunt at other gatherings.
