Man, you're just whataboutism in a nutshell, eh?

The post above was using whataboutism to describe the rest of the Americas and how European Colonizers started mass genocide. I bring up two more and you say whataboutism. You just hate Europeans in a nutshell right?

Dunno how calling you out twice about whataboutism means I hate Europeans, but you continue on the springboard I guess.

You've framed your argument above as if acknowledging that Canada did bad means we are inherently ignoring other times the same bad has been done by someone else. Your coming in to point out that "handy fact" is why it's whataboutism, nobody in this thread said "and everybody else was a saint", as you are implying.

Why mention all those others and when I bring up two more you call foul. And I never said anything about anyone being a saint. I brought up past problems with Natives and how they are very similar. Don't just talk about one part of history is the point here. Don't forget the bullshit they were doing to their own people either. Canada is doing the right thing. But can you name me a tribe that will say they are sorry for taking a neighbors land in war? I don't know of any personally.
