Usually I try to write about the more subtle, intrenched aspects of settler colonialism–those myths taken as natural. But sometimes something so blatantly fucked up comes out of a settlers mouth, sometimes it even seems to sock them that they said it. Often I really don’t know how to deal with it, I guess we can make fun of it together. So, I am adding a new feature to AS THE WORLD BURNS titled: “Upsettler Quote of the Month.” Feel free to send me your nominations. It’s a little late but here is August’s quote:
“We stole the land fair and square.”
There you have it. How do you even begin to deconstruct how insane that is?
