Stop scapegoating Christopher Columbus

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 10/14/2019 4:31:10 AM

Why are we so eager to search out scapegoats for the injustices of history? Whatever the reason, Christopher Columbus is now the fall guy for the sins of slavery, the exploitation of indigenous peoples, the rape of natural resources and most of the legal, financial and territorial abuses that followed the first European steps in the New World. His accusers want to eliminate Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day. Columbus is a 15th-century man in a 21st-century court, and the jury is stacked with self-righteous, injured parties who have 20-20 hindsight. Vilifying him won’t change the unfairness of history, but it will delegitimize

He never had contact with people living in North America, only in the Carib. If it wasn't him someone else would have started coming here. People were living in the Stone age when European s showed up.

Some people have nothing better to do than to cause some others to get upset or angry. Then they sit back and laugh at the anger and indignation they caused. Except for those who are ignorant and believe everything others have said, with no facts to back them up. It is best to just ignore them, and continue to honor our past.

Those who would have you believe the Columbus was a terrible man do not tell the real story. Columbus had a difficult time getting a crew to go with him so convicts were offered to be released from their sentences upon return. The crew was ready to mutiny due to the long journey until someone started seeing birds and land at almost the penultimate time before mutiny. Upon return, Columbus brought back items which Europe had never seen before like corn and potatoes, tobacco, and other things. After 500 years, he is no longer able to defend himself, but when he reached land he claimed it for God and King. He was a believer and a religious man, and that also makes him someone the liberals would target today.

We must stop all this nonsense. Progressives will not be happy until they erase our history and replace it with their woke version. I am sick of it. Everything that has even any sense of goodness the left wants to destroy. We cannot judge history by today’s standards. We learn from the past and always strive to do better. Progressives just want to tear down this country, divide its people, spread its “truth” and wallow in any perceived wrongdoing regardless of progress we have made. Can any nation stand up to the scrutiny of the sanctimonious left?

The real key reason old Chris is vilified is that he was considered white and Christian! I say for all those who want "Indigenous People's" day you need to truly study history and you'll find out those indigenous people actually came here from some other continent! There is very little human remains that go back more than 10,000 years on either North or South America. The oldest is maybe 12,500 b.c. Yes ... a long time ... but nothing compared to "human" remains that are 7.2 million years old found in the Balkans ... or "true" Homo Sapien remains dating back 300,000 years found in Morocco. Funny how they believe only in this case "if you were here first" you have more rights than the illegal immigrant named Columbus! May I suggest that if you really feel that way then stop speaking Spanish or English and start talking Mayan!

This shows how ignorant and infantile the regressives really are (I refuse to refer to them as "progressives"). There really is no such thing as "indigenous people". The history of the human race is one of constant migratiion. The so-called "native Americans" actually were "native Asians" who migrated down from along the Alaskan peninsula. And before they were native Asians they were from somewhere else. If you accept the anthropological evidence that homo sapiens emerged in the Olduvai Gorge of Africa, then we are all indigenous "native Africans" who have been on a multi-millennial road trip. Therefore, it is settled science that EVERYONE in the United States today could in fact claim to be an "African American". Maxine Waters, where are my reparations?

Columbus only did what every other courageous explorer in history has done, made new discoveries for the glory of the land that sent him out. He went, hat in hand, to the King and Queen of Spain for financing, three ships and crews. He set sail for what was believed by most to be the edge of the world and a sea filled with monsters. He owed Spain for what they risked. Give the man the credit due and stop trying to impose our nutty rules on him, he was a great man. What Spain and Britain did in the centuries following was far worse when you consider the people killed and the gold and land stolen.

So, why was Columbus searching for a new route to the far East? What was wrong with the good old silk road - no chance of drowning or sinking there. Thank the muslims for that. They were raiding the caravans along the Silk Road - essentially land pirates, stealing and killing anything that came their way. Columbus was looking for a way and found one. Didn't get to the far East, but found a new place - About the only good thing I can say about Islam.

History is dead in public schools and poor Chris will never be known to them. Maybe if we taught them he was the first pizza delivery guy or something. The dumbing down of America hasn't begun it's here. PC and the left are destroying us it's all about 'race' and separation to them.

Europe was on a roll. They had stopped the stultifying Muslims in France. They had kicked the Muslims out of the Iberian Peninsula. They were looking for more ways to advance. Christopher Columbus was the man with the vision, and he succeeded. His day is celebrated in FIVE countries in this hemisphere. Even the money in some is named after him. In addition to opening America to civilization, he even discovered the Trade Winds. If you don't value his accomplishments, you are poorer for it.

It's still a bit sketchy on Columbus' heritage, spanish, italian? What is known is the Queen of Spain financed the endeavor. What is amazing is how Spanish is the official language of an enormous area of land, essentially encompassing South, Central and parts of North America. Many islands in the Caribbean too. Talk about an enduring legacy, but mostly at the blade of a sword, guns and cannons from the armadas sent to pillage the wealth. Remember, too, the Spanish were dominant in Florida and much of the Southwest, including all of California and into Oregon, and Texas.

I believe the genetic profile of the "Indigenous peoples" that migrated to North America was about 60% Asian-Pacific Islander and 40% Caucasian. So "white people" were already present in North America and everyone here was already an immigrant. And if you look at the history of the native american tribes it appears they spent most of their time fighting with each other and taking one anothers territories. That was the way of the world for thousands of years. Our modern social justice warriors are clueless.

I got engaged on Columbus Day 1980 so it is always a happy day for me. I’ve always felt that it was a huge tragedy that the left managed to destroy what could have been a glorious 500th celebration of Columbus’ achievements in 1992. Political correctness killed it.

NEW ORLEANS – On Saturday morning, structural engineer Walter Zehner’s phone rang with news of a devastating construction collapse on a site he once worked. The plan for 1031 Canal St. had completely changed since Zehner left the project approximately three years ago, moving from a mixed use retail/residential design to what was planned to be a Hard Rock Hotel. When Zehner arrived at the downtown construction site Saturday, he saw six to eight concrete levels had collapsed, the edges hanging down the side of the building as if they’d melted. “It was a lot worse than I could have imagined,” Zehner said. “And I’ve seen the videos of the collapse

Elizabeth Warren has a moving story about being fired from a teaching job because she was pregnant, a story that perfectly complements her political narrative that she is the tribune and champion of those who have been treated unfairly by the powerful. Joe Biden has a moving — and horrifying — story about his wife and daughter being killed by a drunk driver, a story that similarly could not have been designed more perfectly to bolster his political image as a man who can be counted on to soldier on in the face of adversity. Of course, neither story is true. Are we still caring about that sort of thing?

Nearly a week after the U.S. announced its decision to pull out troops from northern Syria to make way for a Turkish incursion, Kurdish forces in the country have reportedly agreed to a new deal with Damascus in a desperate bid to face off against Ankara's offensive. The New York Times reported that the deal-- which was announced Sunday evening-- would enable President Bashar al-Assad's forces to attempt to regain a foothold in the country's northeast. The Kurdish fighters had few options after the United States abandoned them, and it had been anticipated they would turn to Assad’s government for support.

Retired Army Master Sgt. Mark Allen died on Saturday, 10 years after he was shot while looking for a missing soldier in Afghanistan back in 2009. He was 46. Allen was unable to walk or speak since being shot in the head by a sniper in July 2009 during his attempted search for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who walked off his base in Afghanistan and was imprisoned by the Taliban for five years. Bergdahl later pled guilty and was dishonorably discharged, reduced in rank from sergeant to private and fined $1,000 per month over a ten-month period for deserting his post and endangering the lives of fellow soldiers, including Allen.
The case for identifying the whistleblower 3 replies

The identity of the person who filed the intelligence community whistleblower complaint that sparked the drive to impeach President Trump remains a secret. Democrats leading the impeachment campaign say his or her identity (for brevity, the whistleblower will hereafter be referred to as "he") must remain closely guarded. Advocates of whistleblower laws, such as Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, agree. The New York Times came under heavy criticism when it reported that the whistleblower is a CIA officer. "Any decision to report any perceived identifying information of the whistleblower is deeply concerning and reckless, as it can place the individual in harm's way," Andrew Bakaj, the whistleblower's lawyer, told the Times.

Pope Francis spent a brief period of his Jesuit formation in Germany. He was sent there to get a doctorate in theology, but, finding the work tedious and feeling homesick, he returned to Buenos Aires. He once told a fellow Jesuit that studying “fundamental theology” is “boring” — a bizarre attitude for a churchman that explains his intellectually slipshod pronouncements. Not that Francis doesn’t revere German theologians. He does, exceedingly so, particularly heretical ones. During the conclave that elected him, he stayed in a room across from Walter Kasper, the German cardinal famous for his project to liberalize and Protestantize the Church from top to bottom.

I wrote here and here that, although the Democrats’ impeachment claims are frivolous, they have hurt President Trump in the polls. Trump’s history is that he tends to rise in the polls until a negative news cycle hits–which happens often–and then he will drop back down. In the latter post, I noted that before the impeachment frenzy struck, Trump had been rising in the Rasmussen survey. He was at 53% approval among likely voters as of September 24, a number that if maintained suggests a clear path to re-election. The coupling of the words “Trump” and “impeachment” in newspaper headlines–the real purpose of the Democrats’ impeachment drive–drove

Madison, Wis.—The nation's largest independent spice retailer is peppering Facebook with ads calling for the impeachment of President Donald Trump. Wisconsin-based Penzeys Spices spent nearly $100,000 on Facebook ads last week calling for Trump's impeachment, making it one of the largest social media spenders on impeachment to date.

A new report by the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee reaffirms what the White House refuses to accept: Russia intervened in the 2016 election to help then-candidate Donald Trump and to hurt his presidential rivals. The findings are alarming for the breadth of Russia’s operation, the Kremlin’s direct involvement and the ongoing threat posed by foreign meddling to American democracy. But perhaps more than anything, the report amounts to a bipartisan rebuke of the White House’s own disinformation campaign to shift the blame away from Russia. The committee, chaired by Sen. Richard Burr, R-N.C., released a second report this week that furthered the findings of America’s intelligence community

News broke yesterday morning that Hunter Biden has officially stepped down from the board of directors of a Chinese-backed private equity company. Additionally, he made a public promise that if his father, Joe Biden, wins the presidency, he will "forego all foreign work." Quite a lot to unpack here. Firstly, he's missing the point entirely. While President Trump's Ukraine phone call shined a bright light on Joe and Hunter Biden's corruption, the outrage was never about him working for a foreign company. It was about how he got those positions in the first place — with his father's power and status in the U.S. government.
