American Indian Comic Tells DC Rally: 'We've Been Fighting Terrorism Since 1492

"Immigration problems started at Plymouth Rock."

In order to lighten the mood during this past weekend's 10/2 rally, organizers invited Native American comedian Charlie Hill to offer comic relief. So what kind of material did he use?

After Ed Schultz introduced him, Hill began by singing his own version of "This Land is is Your Land":

"This land is my land, this land ain't your land, so get the hell off of my--"

That was just the warm-up.

Later he poked fun at Native Americans for their casinos, and said that "some day we're going to buy our land back -- from the Japanese," which was met with a smattering of boos.

But Hill didn't target only Native Americans. He also went after Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, saying that they shared a brain and if Palin "had a bright idea, it would be beginner's luck." Ironically, he quickly moved on to reiterate that the One Nation rally "is all about healing."

That healing spirit, though, didn't extend to jokes regarding America's founding. In a series of jokes attacking early explorers, Hill said that "immigration problems started at Plymouth Rock," and "we've been fighting terrorism since 1492."

A bulk of the jokes come in the first three minutes, but the entire video contains some "gems":

According to a bio of Hill, he is a "renowned stand-up" comedian who used to be a writer for the Roseanne show.
