Dick Cheney must not consider native Americans -- the race many call American Indians -- are nobodies. The former vice president suggested North America was empty of people 400 years ago when English boats first arrived wth immigrants.
Cheney's false revelation came in a radio interview in which he was asked about Donald Trump's proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States as a measure to prevent terror attacks on American soil. He said the plan "goes against everything we stand for and believe in" because "religious freedom's been a very important part of our history."
"My ancestors got here because they were Puritans," Cheney said. "There wasn't anybody here then when they came. But it's a mistaken notion. It's a serious problem, this refugee problem is. It's a serious problem to make certain that the people coming in don't represent ISIS.
Nobody? Then who did the pilgrims share the first Thanksgiving? Who were those people that John Wayne fought in all those westerns? Where did those people who are running all those casinos come from?
