Iran's Sacred Sites Threatened, MEDIA EXPLODES, Native Sites Harmed, Media Silent

Excellent piece from the New Republic.  Democrats have hollered about Trump threatening Iran's cultural sites, yet silent when it happens here.

Chaco Canyon. The Black HillsBears Ears. Gaylor Ranch. Standing Rock. Mauna Kea. Oak Flat. America, through its founding to its present, has stretched its borders and lined its pockets by desecrating Native American sacred and cultural sites and the land they sat on. A failure to reckon with this history would be a failure to properly contextualize the president’s current threats and America’s founding ethos of capitalist imperialism.
