WATCH: Fox’s Jesse Watters Claims US Didn’t Steal Land From Native Americans, “We Won it on the Battlefield”

Over the weekend, Rep. Cori Bush (MO) noted that not all Americans feel the same way about the 4th of July. She noted on her Twitter page, “When they say that the 4th of July is about American freedom, remember this: the freedom they’re referring to is for white people. This land is stolen land and Black people still aren’t free.”

This enraged Fox host Jesse Watters who brought up the message on Tuesday. The Five host claimed, “Congresswoman Bush said two things. Really dumb things. She says this land was stolen. This land wasn’t stolen. We won this land on the battlefield and we bought it, right? We purchased Spain–I mean we purchased Florida from Spain. We have the receipts. What, do you want to give Florida back to Spain?”

Co-host Geraldo Rivera retorted, “How about the Seminoles?”

Watters continued, “Well, what about them, Geraldo? We won that territory on the battlefield. It was an ugly, brutal battle, but we won it. We’re not just gonna give everything back to the indigenous people of this country.”

The Fox host then moved onto the second part of Bush’s tweet about the freedom of Black Americans. “St. Louis, which Bush represents, has a Black mayor, district attorney, and police chief. So are you saying these Black leaders are denying freedom to the Black people of St. Louis? That’s insane.”

Bush’s tweet isn’t all that newsworthy. But it’s the exact kind of thing that Fox jumps all over to stir up white grievance.
