Bryan Fischer keeps rolling along. Now drags Pocahontas into his insane worldview
Say what you will about Bryan Fischer, but the man just refuses to give up or ever back down.
Case in point: after his blog post asserting that Native Americans were “morally disqualified” from exercising control over North America and that Europeans were justified in taking it by force was taken down by the AFA, Fischer has continued to defend it, claiming that people were just too immature and dim-witted to deal with this truth.
But that wasn’t enough, so Fischer penned a new column explaining if all Native Americans had just been as deferential as Pocahontas and converted to Christianity, the European settlers wouldn’t have had to resort to all that “bloodshed and violence” … a point he made again on his radio program yesterday:
But you think about how different American history would have been if every member of the indigenous tribes had followed Pocahontas’ example. She not only converted, she assimilated. She did not just convert to Christianity and then try to maintain some separate tribal identity, some segregated style of life. She converted, she recognized the superiority of the spiritual convictions of the colonists, of the Englishmen, she embraced their religion, she embraced their faith, she embraced their god, she embraced their savior because she recognized that the god that the English served was superior to the gods that the Indian people served. So she identified herself no longer as an Algonquin Indian but as an Englishman. So she melded into the culture that she recognized was superior to her own. If the example of Pocahontas had been followed, things could have been much, much different - we would have had a seamless and bloodless assimilation, integration, of the indigenous peoples into the melting pot which became America.
