Socialism is alive and well in Oklahoma. U.S. House Representative Brad Carson, D-OK, wants to repopulate the rural western part of the state and he’s willing to pay people to do it, using federal and state tax dollars to lure them out there – maybe just in time to discover oil under formerly Indian land.
Sounds a bit like President Andrew Jackson (1767-1845), who wanted to remove the Cherokee Indians from Georgia, and to march them westward, to Indian Territory (Oklahoma). But that was because Jackson felt the Indians were abjectly different, they would never be part of American free-enterprise system, and he wanted them out of the way. Indians finally hit The Trail of Tears in 1838.
So why does Carson want to move American white people to an area where the America way has not worked so well? Why the “White Removal?” Why is Carson willing to use federal tax dollars in a socialist way to develop what free enterprise left “underdeveloped?” Why is it so important to have increased population in western Oklahoma, to the point of making it a government program?
To develop socialist government, as befits any Rhodes Scholar like Brad.
And what kind of incentives does Carson offer white people in his migration plan? Right now: money. Using state and federal tax dollars, he plans to pay 50 percent of college loans for students who attend college in western Oklahoma; $5,000 tax credit to anyone purchasing a home in western Oklahoma; 25-100 percent federal matching funds for anyone in western Oklahoma who can save $12,500 in five years (tax-free) by placing their money in a western credit bureau, whose funds will be used for education expenses, small business loans, and medical expenses; and Carson will offer $19 million in business loans to encourage businesses to move to western Oklahoma.
Carson’s White Removal is simply redistribution of wealth, for the purpose of demographic redistribution. It’s pure Communism, but these days in American political doublespeak, it’s called “economic development.”
But there’s more to this economic story.
The Bureau of Indian Affairs is about to sell off some western Oklahoma Indian lands. These lands may have rich oil and gas deposits. Is this why Carson wants to make sure white people are living in western Oklahoma? Forget the Indians; they’re dumb and gullible. They’ll sell their land for a can a beer. Let’s move in and take over!
Actually, the way for white repopulation of Indian land was prepared a century ago. The Enabling Act of 1906 dissolved all Oklahoma Indian reservations, so Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory could be admitted into the Union collectively as the State of Oklahoma. There are no Indian lands in Oklahoma, just Indians. (Globalists dissolving historical nations into “one people.” What does it matter who lives where? Shuffle everyone around, according to the perceived economic “needs.” Redistribute the people.) Now Carson is redistributing wealth, geographically.
Ironically, the very young, very blonde, blue-eyed Carson claims to be Cherokee Indian. In fact, he’s counting on the Indian vote in Oklahoma to win him a U.S. Senate seat this November. He says his mother’s ancestors came to Oklahoma on the Trail of Tears. (Half the people of Oklahoma say the same thing, and their great-grandmothers were always Cherokee princesses.) Brad says he’s Vice-Chair of the Congressional Native American Caucus (but he isn’t listed or designated as such) and claims to be a strong advocate of Indian rights.
Which Indians? Only the Cherokee, of eastern Oklahoma? Republican Tom Coburn, Carson’s opponent, says Carson is using the larger tribes to crush the smaller ones like the plains tribes, whose land is in western Oklahoma.
Indeed, Brad sees no Indian sovereignty issues in Oklahoma whatsoever. I brought this subject up with him in Washington, D.C., last May, after I spoke at the National Press Club. I was with Marla Peek, Director of Regulatory Affairs for the Oklahoma Farm Bureau (part of One Nation).
Brad feels that lobbyists like Citizens for Equal Rights Alliance and One Nation were alarmists, concerned about Indian sovereignty (or losing the same) without cause. He cautioned Marla, “I think you really should wait until you have an actual problem before you raise this public concern.” He said we were weakening our credibility to raise issues before they existed. Like John Kerry says, respond after you’re attacked.
No Indian sovereignty issues? This from a man who wants to make sure white people are living on Indian land in western Oklahoma before oil is discovered. So much for Carson’s credibility.
And let’s hope his “incentives” for repopulating western Oklahoma don’t become “socialist coercions” for whites or Indians. The American taxpayer should not be fleeced to resettle white people wherever the government dictates. And Indians have lost enough ground (literally and figuratively) playing this game.
