    A RNC National Committeeman told Governor Susana Martinez's staff that her agreeing to meet with Native Americans is disrespectful to the memory of Col. George Armstrong Custer, the infamous cavalry officer who killed thousands of Native Americans in the 1800s, according to emails obtained by ProgressNow New Mexico.

    In a*June 8, 2012 email*to the governor's senior staff and personal attorney, Pat Rogers wrote in response to an article regarding the governor's annual meeting with the state's tribal leaders:

    *

    Quislings, French surrender monkeys, secret supporters (all along) of JAJ [Janice Arnold*Jones]

    The state is going to hell.* Col. Weh would not have dishonored Col Custer in this manner.

    I hope who ever recommended this is required to read the entire redist [redistricting law suit] transcript and sit through the entire meeting with the Gov.

    *Read the full email here.

    Rogers is referring to the governor's attendance at the annual state-tribal leaders summit, a meeting the governor is required by law to attend.*

    George Armstrong Custer may be regarded as a kind of military hero by Pat Rogers, but to the Native peoples of America Custer represents the bellicose imperialism that was responsible for the systematic slaughter of American Indians throughout this continent.*
    Pat Rogers is a high-powered GOP lobbyist, partner and Vice-President of the*Modrall law firm*of Albuquerque, RNC National Committeeman and recent member of the RNC Executive Committee.** He has represented Presidential candidates George Bush, Ralph Nader, Congressman Heather Wilson and the Susana Martinez for Governor Committee.

    Your copy-and-paste skills could use some work. I realize he has more practice, but you have a ways to go if you ever hope to show the world that you're on basso's level.

    Funny article though. I think this is the second time in my life I've heard the label 'quisling' used, the first being in an old Letterman interview w/Norm MacDonald.

    Don't talk about American atrocities.
