Help me out here.

The definition seems quite nebulous and prone to bias and framing effects.

A quick glance at how the historiography of western expansion has changed in the past 100 years would have your answer right there.

Long story short, Americans went from being the good guys to the bad guys. Of course the truth lies somewhere in the middle, but the popular trend until recently was to paint those of European descent in the story as the evil baddies and the Native Americans as totally peaceful victims. Only recently has the pendulum been swinging back to the middle

They were spying for the Communists of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.

Yeah Native Americans are not peaceful victims, what a bunch of snowflakes.

Who gets upset about a little genocide.

Sheesh.

Violent clashes ain't what they used to be.

Yep. In fact, the tribes were frequently bitter and violent rivals, often at war with each other. Whitey was able to exploit these rivalries, making alliances and pitting tribe aginst tribe. It really helped them take over the continent.

What's the difference between conservatives and liberals?

Conservatives get angry when you lie to them. Liberals get angry when you tell
them the truth.

It's funny because you didn't include both in your post.

I have a thing about posting pictures like you posted. I'd rather not see them at all. Fook them.

"We stand on stolen land" is a good one.

IRL we did it the old fashioned way - Thunderdome style, just like every civilization before us. Including the civilzations we took this land from. It pays to be a winner. Be grateful we didn't do it old school style like the Mongols and other before us.

"America was never great" is another one.

"No USA at all" is part of a longer protest chant but it's still as antithetical to the nation state as it gets.

"I hope the economy collapses" is another one, for obvious reasons.
