  2. Alas, I am saddened to think that this administration is taking the country not just “back” but TWO STEPS back at the expense of all nonwhite anglo saxon protestant groups. However I find it also amusing that they think that they have been the only ones strangled by being “PC” in public… just wait til the “Other” Silent Majority decides to call them out to their faces… It’s already starting to happen, and I hope that Native Americans stay in the mix both as a protest group, and as a public consideration.
