Indigenous communities in Oklahoma are condemning the head of the state’s Republican Party after he called for the disestablishment of the federally recognized Muscogee Nation reservation. The Inter-Tribal Council of the Five Tribes in Oklahoma was responding to remarks made this week by John Bennett, who’s also a candidate for a U.S. congressional seat. Bennett made more headlines this week after he called for the state killing of top infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci.
John Bennett: “We’re in a war with bureaucrats that have forced vaccine mandates on us, mask mandates on us. And you know what? They’re pushing this wokeness confusion down our throats now. And by the way, we should try Anthony Fauci and put him in front of a firing squad.”
Earlier this year, Dr. Fauci told Congress that attacks by Republican politicians have led to death threats against him and his family.
