Westboro Church Banned...

...in tribal lands. They wanted to protest at a dead native American soldier's funeral, and the tribal authorities banned them from entering their territory. The head of the tribal authority stated: "We will not tolerate any harassment that is intended to provoke ill feelings and violence"

We took your land, wiped out your culture and condemned you to generations of alcoholism and poverty. But at least you get to decide who can and can't come onto your reservation!

Seriously, this is pleasing, but it's also sort of sad. When was the last time you heard about an Indian reservation in the news? By and large, they're probably the worst places one can live in America, and we just ignore them and the substantial responsibility we (ie, America as a nation, not "white people" or any such nebulous concepts) still owe them.
