STEVEN CROWDER (HOST): Look, no one is justifying Trail of Tears. There were obviously – there were horrible acts committed on all sides. But look, here's the thing. The Native American trump card is one of those sacred cows, it's one of those third rails that nobody wants to touch. And boy does it grind my gears. This idea that for some reason land should be given back to some common ancestral existence where people were all living in harmony – do you know, we had one civil war here in the new world, and it was really bad and bloody. Before the new world, it was always civil war between tribes. It's not even close. You know who would be worse off if the land were given back the natives – which, by the way, is a misnomer, if we're going to get into that term – would be the Native Americans.

GERALD MORGAN (CO-HOST): They wouldn't have casinos anymore.


CROWDER: Give all the land back. Well, we don't want whole country to look like every episode of Cops. Ever driven through tribal land recently? Does it look like they're living off the – you could. You could just live off the land. What does Comanche mean? Land of a thousand trailer parks? Have you guys driven through? At a certain point you're like, well, this is what you've done with it. Why would we give it back to you? Also, why would we give back any of it? We won. I know you don't like it but that did happen. And you tried to win because you were actually killing their ancestors, and you were raping their ancestors, and you were enslaving their ancestors, and then we came here and, you know, we tried to purchase land from you and in some cases like Manhattan and Canarsie we have a bill of sale and then you came back anyway. And so we had to start fighting you.
