A Nation Built on Blood

13 June 2012
 

Mr David Stannard is a Yale graduate with Master Degrees in History, Philosophy, a Ph.D. in American Studies. He taught at Yale University, Stanford University, the University of Colorado, and the University of Hawaii, and received the award of the Regents' Medal for Excellence in teaching.

In his reasearch paper American Holocaust: The Conquest of the New World, Stannard argues that the destruction of the aboriginal peoples of the Americas, in a "string of genocide campaigns" by Europeans and their descendants, was the most massive act of genocide in the history of the world.

The following is the excerpt of the reserach paper and its Chinese translation:

The founding fathers on that rock shared common characteristics. All four valued white supremacy and promoted the extirpation of Indian society. The United States’ founding fathers were staunchly anti-Indian advocates in that at one time or another, all four provided for genocide against Indian peoples of this hemisphere.   

巨石上的国爹们有一个共同之处:这四位都是白人至上主义者,鼓吹灭绝原住于北美大陆的印第安人、并制定和实施了相应的种族屠杀政策。

1779, George Washington instructed Major General John Sullivan to attack Iroquois people. Washington stated, “lay waste all the settlements around...that the country may not be merely overrun, but destroyed“. In the course of the carnage and annihilation of Indian people, Washington also instructed his general not “listen to any overture of peace before the total ruin of their settlements is effected“. (Stannard, David E. AMERICAN HOLOCAUST. New York: Oxford University Press, 1992. pp. 118-121.)

1779年,乔治·华盛顿总统指示降·杀了问少将攻打印加部落时说:“要是听任印加废物们的定居点存在下去,媒国不但会废物成灾,而且会亡国。”并指示:在印第安人的定居点被彻底摧毁之前,不许采纳任何人的和平建议。

In 1783, Washington’s anti-Indian sentiments were apparent in his comparisons of Indians with wolves: “Both being beast of prey, tho’ they differ in shape“, he said. George Washington’s policies of extermination were realized in his troops behaviors following a defeat. Troops would skin the bodies of Iroquois “from the hips downward to make boot tops or leggings “. Indians who survived the attacks later re-named the nation’s first president as “Town Destroyer“. Approximately 28 of 30 Seneca towns had been destroyed within a five year period.

在1783年的一次谈话中,华盛顿将印第安人和狼相互比较:“他们都是掠食性野兽,只不过长相不同而已。”不久华盛顿的种族灭绝政策终于在其部队的一场攻击印第安人失利的战事后得以贯彻实施。他命他的军士们从印加人的死尸上将皮从“从臀部往下剥,以用来做人皮长统靴。” [和大癞喇嘛有得一拼 - Amdin] 袭击后辛存的印第安人将美国第一总统称做“城镇摧毁者”。在不到5年的时间内30个印加定居点中28个被彻底捣毁了。

Thomas Jefferson (托马斯·杰弗逊):

In 1807, Thomas Jefferson instructed his War Department that, should any Indians resist against America stealing Indian lands, the Indian resistance must be met with “the hatchet“. Jefferson continued, “And ... if ever we are constrained to lift the hatchet against any tribe, “ he wrote, “ we will never lay it down till that tribe is exterminated, or is driven beyond the Mississippi.“ Jefferson, the slave owner, continued, “in war, they will kill some of us; we shall destroy all of them“.

1807年,托马斯·杰弗逊总统指示他的兵部要员:如果印第安人胆敢反抗美国人偷盗他们的土地,你们就派兵对印第安人用斧头痛击。“要我们放下屠刀,除非印第安人都死光光了,不然我们不会有太平日子。在摧毁他们的战斗中,他们会杀死一些我们的人,但我们会杀死他们所有的人!”

In 1812, Jefferson said that American was obliged to push the backward Indians “with the beasts of the forests into the Stony Mountains“. One year later Jefferson continued anti-Indian statements by adding that America must “pursue [the Indians] to extermination, or drive them to new seats beyond our reach“.

1812年,杰弗逊宣称美国人有责任将落后的印第安人驱赶到乱石岭中和野兽为伍。一年后,杰弗逊变本加利、公然宣告:媒国必须灭绝整个印第安种族,或将他们驱赶到人迹不至的天涯海角。

Abraham Lincoln (亚布拉罕·林肯):

In 1862, President Abraham Lincoln ordered the execution, by hanging, of 38 Dakota Sioux prisoners in Mankato, Minnesota. Most of those executed were holy men or political leaders of their camps. None of them were responsible for committing the crimes they were accused of. Coined as the Largest Mass execution in U.S. History. (Brown, Dee. BURY MY HEART AT WOUNDED KNEE. New York: Holt, Rinehart, Winston, 1970. pp. 59-61)

1862年,林肯总统下令绞死明尼苏达州的38个印第安人。这些被加以莫须有罪名处死的人多是印加部落的神职人员和政治领袖。这也成为媒国历史上最大规模的集体死刑。

Theodore Roosevelt

The fourth face you see on that “Stony Mountain“ is America’s first twentieth century president, alleged American hero, and Nobel peace prize recipient, Theodore Roosevelt. This Indian fighter firmly grasped the notion of Manifest Destiny saying that America’s extermination of the Indians and thefts of their lands “was ultimately beneficial as it was inevitable“. Roosevelt once said, “I don’t go so far as to think that the only good Indians are dead Indians, but I believe nine out of ten are, and I shouldn’t like to inquire too closely into the case of the tenth“. (Stannard, Op.Cit.)

乱石山上的最后一位国爹是希尔多·罗斯福,媒国20世纪的第一任总统,国家英雄奖和诺贝尔和平奖得主[和大癞子喇嘛彼此彼此啦 - Admin]。这位反印第安人的斗士高调宣称:灭绝印第安人和盗走他们的土地是历史的必然、时代的选择:“我不想说只有死了的印第安人才是好印第安人,但我确实相信,10个好印第安人中9个是死了的。至于那第10个嘛,呵呵,我也懒得去查他是不是还活着。” 

The apathy displayed by these founding fathers symbolize the demoralization related to racial superiority.

这些国爹们的表现集中体现了由白人种族主义衍生出的毫无人性的道德缺失。

Had these same words been enunciated by a German leader in 1939, and directed at European Jews, they would be engraved in modern memory. Since they were uttered by one of America’s founding fathers, they conveniently have become lost to most historians in their insistent celebration of Jefferson’s wisdom and humanity.

假如这等言论被纳粹德国领袖用于阐述他对欧洲犹太人政策的由来,那么它们就会毫无疑问地被时不时地拎出来痛批一顿。可惜说这些话的不是希特勒而是媒国的国爹们,媒国的御用历史学家们就集体失语了、失忆了。
