Happy Columbus Day

No, I did not say, “Happy Indigenous People Day” — although that’s what we are supposed to call it now here in Phoenix:

Phoenix, Arizona declared it would recognize Native Americans with its first Indigenous Peoples’ Day this year, reports The Arizona Republic.

“The city of Phoenix is built on what was the Hohokam civilization,” advocate Jeff Malkoon told city council members while lobbying for the change.

But Hohokam culture failed, disappearing before Columbus set sail. It was the civilization brought to the New World by Columbus that built a great city where many centuries ago the Hohokam had dug some canals.

Phoenix isn’t alone. Minneapolis, Seattle, and Albuquerque are among the other cities that stick it to Columbus and the civilization he represents by honoring his alleged victims instead of him.

Proponents say the federal holiday honoring Christopher Columbus – and the parades and pageantry accompanying it – overlook a painful history of colonialism, enslavement, discrimination and land grabs that followed the Italian explorer’s 1492 arrival in the Americas. The indigenous holiday takes into account the history and contributions of Native Americans for a more accurate historical record, activists have argued.

They want an accurate historical record? Then they had better not forget to mention that the denizens of the Western Hemisphere were Stone Age, subsistence level savages when Columbus arrived. They did not even have the wheel. Slavery, cannibalism, and human sacrifice were commonplace. Life was, as Thomas Hobbes might put it, poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

The authorities want us to be ashamed of Western Civilization, and to revere the imaginary golden age of the noble savage. This is moonbattery at its most delusional and corrosive.

On a tip from Varla.

    How about Happy Cuckservative Day? Just curious, how many of you quisling pieces of shit are now behind thecunt?

    There is no end to the ways in which your phoneyfuck indignation reveals
    the full rainbow-facialed glory hole degeneracy of your flaccid
    testosterone deficient soul. It’s the schoolmarmish finger wagging
    equivalent of a ravished sphincter bleeding torrents of AIDS. You’re all
    weak sacks of shit. I could carve a better man out of Jeb. Carl the

    Britannica describes Hohokam culture as “prehistoric North American Indians who lived approximately from ad 200 to 1400 in the semiarid region of present-day central and southern Arizona, largely along the Gila and Salt rivers.” They add, “The term Hohokam is said to be Pima for ‘those who have vanished.'”

    This, as was mentioned in the intro to this thread, is because “Hohokam culture” was not self-sustaining enough to survive – and it vanished, depending on what source you use, sometime between ad 1200 and ad 1450.

    So any claim that

    “The city of Phoenix is built on what was the Hohokam civilization,” is disingenuous at best, if not an outright deliberate lie, unless you’re suggesting that the city is built on the ruins of a long dead, failed civilization. Nothing in Phoenix owes it’s existence to the Hohokam civilization.

    Admitting Trump has been all over the map and has shown liberal and moonbat tendencies is just being honest, not being a “cucservative”.

    Though as my many posts will prove, I would much rather take my chances with Trump than with Clinton. So don’t go there.

  4. Alpha Male says:

    When men cheered at hearing words like Trumps.There’s no getting through to hapless white knight betas. Some manlets
    you just can’t reach. So you get what we had here this weekend,
    cringeworthy pussy polishing by asexual pastor cucks. Right, Blount?

  5. 762x51 says:

    Dear me, I had no idea Trumpanzee snowflakes could speak with such vulgarity. I am shocked, shocked I say.

    Ban Hammer in . 3 . . .2 . . .1 . .

  6. 762x51 says:

    They will go there, have been for a month or more now, setting up and excuse for when tRump loses to the most easily defeatable candidate since Michael Dukakis.

    Their cult leader is down another point after the debate, now Clinton +5.8:

    It’s not like we didn’t warn them but that won’t stop the progtards from making excuses, it is, after all, what progtards do.

  7. 762x51 says:

    Manlets . . . I love it when you Trumpanzee cowards try an talk tough while hiding behind your keyboards, hilarious.

  8. geeknerd says:

    Columbus Day should ne the most important Hispanic holiday, for without him, the white European Spaniards would never have come to rape interbreed with the natives to create the Hispanic peoples of Mexico, Central and South America

  9. J.j. Cintia says:

    Of course if they were really genuine about this, they would quit their jobs in our government set up by Whites, and go live with their beloved Indians on their reservations. But they won’t because they’re full of shit and are just preening about how good they are, when in fact they’re all a bunch of obnoxious selfish self-centered snobs.

  10. geeknerd says:

    Also, every government employee gets today off, EXCEPT TEACHERS. If the teachers’ union was a union and not a bunch of SJWs, we wouldn’t have lost this holiday.

  11. Vic Kelley says:

    Happy Columbus Day. Couldn’t celebrate, worked instead.

  12. Eddie_Valiant says:

    Watching Bill “I Love Trump” O’Reilly tonight, he asked Jesse Watters if he, Jesse, knew why Columbus sailed towards the west. Bill explained that Columbus was seeking a new way to Asia because the Caliphate was so powerful, Europeans couldn’t sail towards the east.

    Can’t say I’d heard that before, but it has a ring of truth.

    islam was reeking havoc along the Silk Road.

  14. TrojanMan says:

    Dang i missed it

  15. TrojanMan says:

    Bill “I Love Trump” O’Reilly… Then what would you call Hannity? The PG13 version please…. LOL

  16. Take The Red Pill says:

    Islamic pirates in the Mediterranean Sea were also preying on European shipping as well.

  17. Take The Red Pill says:

    When the next SJW starts preaching their anti-European tripe, ask them when they’re going to give up all their property here, give it to the nearest Native American tribe, and “go back where they came from”?
    (Incidentally, one of my Great-great-grandmothers was Potowattomi…)

  18. Bodhisattva says:

    I think it was more that the overland route was long and you never knew who was going to stop you or tax you (the Caliphate) or waylay you… and the sea route around Africa was long and could be dangerous too. Back then they thought the Earth was smaller and they figured it would be quicker and easier to sail west to get to the east.

  19. Bodhisattva says:

    It wasn’t worth reading. Just some guy who needs to consider staying away from the meth pipe.

  20. Bodhisattva says:

    To be honest, Trump has shown some pretty unexpected staying power. With as much hatred as has been dumped on him it makes sense that Hillary asked why she’s not much further ahead… except for the fact she’s even more hated than he is.

  21. TED says:

    AND STILL, they deny it’s a SICKNESS!!!

  22. Eddie_Valiant says:

    Not sure there is PG13 version!

  23. Eddie_Valiant says:

    I knew that Columbus was looking for a shorter route to Asia, but I must have been not inhaling when that was discussed in European history!

    Funny how that worked out though, eh? The Calaphate was a pain in the a** back then!

  24. JeffersonSpinningInGrave says:

    I think that captures leftism as well as a few sentences can.

  25. marcus tullius cicero says:

    …give the “Indigenous People” their own Holiday, or better yet, a whole Month like they did with Blacks…Butt, leave Cristobal Colon alone!
    BTW, if it wasn’t for the Despicable Spaniards, the “Indigenous People” wouldn’t have had the HORSE to hunt the “buffalo”…

  26. marcus tullius cicero says:

    …Marco Polo was lucky, he only had to stay away from the Mongols, the
    muslims were nonexistent then!

  27. 762x51 says:

    I don’t know about more hated, after all his negatives have always been higher than hers, which is a feat all by itself. I guess in 27 days we will find out. That said, the spread is now Hillary by 6.5 points, up two full points since the last debate which he ostensibly “won”.

  28. 762x51 says:

    Meh, just another Trumpanzee coward trying to intimidate MB, I just hope my “shocked” face turned out alright.
