Happy Columbus Day

Western Civilization is the apex of human achievement. Columbus Day is a time to celebrate its expansion into the cultural vacuum of the New World. As a holiday it will soon be abolished because liberals oppose Western Civilization. They would prefer we celebrate the backwards, dysfunctional, savage cultures that Europeans made the world a better place by displacing.

Several city councils across the country are voting to abolish Columbus Day — and celebrate the holiday as Indigenous People’s Day.

Officials in Portland, Ore., on Wednesday became the most recent to approve the new name for the holiday.

The day — which is traditionally celebrated on the second Monday in October — celebrates Christopher Columbus discovering the so-called New World.

However, [moonbat] historians and activists over the years have tried to dethrone Columbus’ reign as a famed explorer and instead hold him responsible for the mass genocide and enslavement of natives who had been in the Americas long before Columbus sailed the ocean blue.

“Learning about the history of Columbus and transforming this day into a celebration of indigenous people and a celebration of social justice…allows us to make a connection between this painful history and the ongoing marginalization, discrimination, and poverty that indigenous communities face to this day,” Kshama Sawant, a Seattle City Council member told the Seattle Times in 2014.

As the reference to “social justice” indicates, Kshama is a socialist. She is an Indian of the dot not feather variety, who presumably came to this country because of the opportunities Western Civilization offers. The history of her ideology suggests that the last thing she would do is alleviate poverty.

Is there really even a single person who would rather live in the Western Hemisphere pre-Columbus than post-Columbus? The romanticized life of a savage is revered in the faculty lounge, but in reality it was poor, nasty, brutish, and short.

    Don’t you just love the unctuous hypocrisy of leftists and limousine liberals? Their very existence is the result of the pioneering Columbus and his crews. On their tiny ships, they sailed to the new world in what must be called horrible conditions and helped lay the foundation for the greatest nation devised by the human mind.

    The libs and academics tool around in their BMWs and Teslas and p*ss on the very nation that makes their wretched lives possible.

    For sure, the mistreatment of the natives should not have happened but many tribes tried to chase the settlers out and there was war. Yet, over the centuries, we have honored the natives by naming important places and other things after the natives. In my area, many schools, streets and even a great lake is named for King Philip, an Indian chief that lived in the southeastern Massachusetts area.

    If it weren’t for the temerity of Columbus the greatest nation ever might not have been born. You may not have wanted a guy like Columbus as a neighbor, but he’s owed a debt of thanks for his pioneering spirit.

    Oh yes those wonderful Indigenous People. Cannibalism, Human Sacrifice, and not even having the wheel. Think about it, my ancestors had the wheel over three thousand years ago, along with a written language. How many Injun tribes had those?

    I love how they fail to mention that these natives had no trouble with conquering, enslaving, killing, and eradicating each other. Or how that throughout most of history technologically inferior cultures had two choices. Assimilate or die. So, they should consider themselves lucky.

    Abolishing the Feather Indians falling-down drinking habits would help them a lot more than renaming a day. Working might help them too.

    In Mexico, they call it El Dia de la Raza — Day of the Race (new mixed race resulting from intermixing of Natives and Europeans).
