Remove Columbus statue from
city park, Hispanic group says

NJ.com, by Marisa Iati

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 10/6/2017 11:28:29 PM

Long Branch — The statue stands in a small park near a strip of businesses owned primarily by blacks and Latinos. The 6-foot tall monument to Christopher Columbus was erected in Long Branch´s Slocum Park in 1961, when the city was predominantly white. More than half a century later, the city has seen an influx of Latino immigrants, and at least one Hispanic group would like to see the statue moved to a different location. "The man is not a national hero, and the statue is displayed in the center of a black and Hispanic neighborhood as if he did something really

Comments:
Blacks and Hispanics moved in, and they instead want a statue of a black or a Hispanic person. Would the reverse be OK? Can white people, wherever they are in the majority, demand revocation of MLK day, etc?

Genome projects reveal that 60-65% of the genetic inheritance of "Hispanics" comes from Europe, i.e., Spain. "Hispanics" are descended from, and speak Spanish because of, Spanish explorers/conquistadores like Columbus, their relatives.

So exactly who are they protesting? Themselves?

Personally, I am sick of protests and whining. If you don´t like it here, leave, but we are warning you, nobody else is putting up with this stuff.

Look at how many unproductive hours are wasted in this country. Maybe if former Gov. Haley hadn´t caved and taken down the Confederate Flag, the country wouldn´t be in this state.

BTW Hispanics is a word made up by the US government. Seems like the only ´Hispanics´ should come from the Isle of Hispanola.

The Aztecs really put teeth into the phrase
"Eat your heart out," and the Conquistadors didn´t conquist anything without the help of the oppressed locals. Columbus had the vision, skill, tenacity and guts to organize, equip and lead one of the most daring expeditions in the history of mankind. Not only did he lead his men into the unknown but he also led the world into a new and better era. I could go on. I´ll take Columbus over Bruce or Harvey or whomever the left wants idolize.

Another article from the nearly dead NJ media packed with whine and grievances, signifying nothing. I know the general area, and the Columbus statue would be far better appreciated in a less rundown part of Long Branch or better, West Long Branch, Belmar or another area at the shore where the locals will protect and fete it.

But as #3 pointed out, the "Hispanics" owe their Euro genetics to those who came, saw, and settled after Cristoforo Colombo. So how self hating is that? And those "indigenous peoples" were often not peaceful agrarians.

So now Columbus is racist because he came to America to kill indians. He was an explorer that proved the earth was round. He was the only explorer to cross the Atlantic three times and make it back. If the so called hispanics are not happy here, they should go back first to Mexico and then to Spain. Besides, the lefties should be very proud of Columbus. He was the ultimate democrat. He didn´t know where he was going, he didn´t know where he was, he didn´t know where he came from and he did all that with borrowed money.

Object on tracks may be cause
of deadly Amtrak derailment
New York Post, by Bruce Golding and Bob Fredericks    Original Article
Posted By: Ribicon- 12/18/2017 3:31:51     Post Reply
Monday’s deadly Amtrak train derailment appears to have been caused by an object on the railway, according to a government official briefed on the crash. A preliminary investigation suggests maintenance problems are unlikely to blame because the incident took place on brand-new tracks, the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity. At least six people were killed and the death toll is expected to rise, the official said. The Amtrak 501 plunged off an overpass onto I-5 near Lacey, Washington, sometime before 7:45 a.m., during its inaugural run between Seattle, Washington, and Portland, Oregon.

Washington — New Jersey Transit and Amtrak are working with the Transportation Security Administration on technology to detect explosives on individuals seeking to bomb train stations. Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer revealed the developments Sunday and called on the TSA to test the Stand Off Explosive Detection Technology in the New York City subway system, which was hit by a terrorist attack last week. It is designed to screen for explosives strapped to a person, including a suicide bomber or someone hiding a pipe bomb such as the one that went off Dec. 11 in the tunnel connecting the subways to the

A restaurant in Texas is defending itself against racism allegations after hanging a sign that uses a derogatory term for African Americans and depicts a blackface caricature. The sign, which features cartoonish blackface with “Coon Chicken Inn” printed on the grinning teeth, has made the rounds on social media with many calling it “racist” and “infuriating.” Cook’s Garage in Lubbock, Texas, claims the controversial sign is “part of history,” according to Everything Lubbock.

Quetta, Pakistan — Two suicide bombers attacked a church in the Pakistani city of Quetta on Sunday, killing eight people and wounding 42 others, officials said. Sarfaraz Bugti, home minister for the southwestern Baluchistan province, said hundreds of worshippers were attending services at the church ahead of Christmas. He said the attackers clashed with security forces, with one assailant killed at the entrance while the other made it inside. Baluchistan police chief Moazzam Ansari praised the response of security forces guarding the church, saying the attacker who made it inside was wounded and unable to reach the main building.

Legalizing ´Dreamers´

Legalizing 2 million illegal immigrant “Dreamers” would cost the government $25.9 billion over the next decade, as those now-legal people would claim more tax, education and other benefits they haven’t been able to get before, the Congressional Budget Office said Friday. The CBO also said newly legalized Dreamers would sponsor 80,000 more immigrants to enter the country as part of “chain migration.” Immigrant-rights activists have argued that legalizing Dreamers would be a financial boon to the country, but the CBO and the Joint Committee on Taxation suggested otherwise, saying that while they would pay somewhat

The Trump administration is striking seven words and phrases — including “science-based” and “diversity” — from official budget documents, according to a Friday report. Analysts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say they were given a list of terms that are now banned from any budgetary requests sent to the Trump White House, according to The Washington Post. The forbidden language includes “entitlement,” “transgender,” “fetus,” “vulnerable,” and “evidence-based,” the paper reported. The now-taboo terms will not be used in official documents from the Atlanta institute, which issues reports on health promotion and disease prevention in the United States.

Norman, Okla. — An Oklahoma judge on Friday sentenced a man to death for beheading a co-worker in 2014 at a food processing plant. Cleveland County District Judge Lori Walkley accepted a jury’s recommendation of the death penalty over life in prison without parole for Alton Nolen, 33. Jurors earlier this year convicted him of decapitating 54-year-old Colleen Hufford when he attacked her and others at the Vaughan Foods plant. His attorneys argued that he is mentally ill and that he believed he was doing the right thing because of his delusional misinterpretations of the Quran.
