Next After Robert E. Lee: Christopher Columbus

You can’t hate the European people and their civilization without hating Christopher Columbus, who personifies their expansion into the formerly savage New World. Consequently,

A proposal to remove a statue of the explorer Christopher Columbus on the Upper West Side will receive “immediate attention” by Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office in the wake of violence stemming from a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.

Columbus Circle will need a new name. Al Sharpton Circle might be appropriate.

Even in Columbus, Ohio, leftists are demanding that officials remove a statue of Columbus.

What bureaucrats don’t impose, likeminded mobs inflict extralegally:

[Monday] morning someone posted a video showing a man with a sledgehammer vandalizing a monument to Christopher Columbus in Baltimore as he rants about “genocidal terrorists like Christopher Columbus and George Washington.” The Baltimore Brew reports the 225-year-old monument to Columbus is the oldest one still standing in the United States.

The two-minute video also features a monologue that lists capitalism among Columbus’ worst sins. “Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European capitalism into the Western Hemisphere,” the narrator says.

Other Columbus statues have been vandalized in Houston and Detroit.

All of this was easily predictable from the time liberals started demanding that Columbus Day be changed to Indigenous Peoples’ Day, and that Martin Luther King Day replace it as a day off work. Yet again we see that if you give them an inch, they will take a mile.

On tips from Byron, TCS III, Sean C, and Torcer.

    Gun control isn’t working for libtards so they’ve turned to statue control. Neither is about guns or statues. Both are about control.

    When the left cannot compel by argument the only option is to compel by force. Venezuela is a perfect example.

    I wonder if any of these dolts have stopped to consider where in the world they might be if wasn’t for Columbus.

    We were in San Juan, Puerto Rico, in 1992, the year of the 500th anniversary of Columbus’ voyage to America. There was some sort of commemorative banner hung across the plaza, but definitely pretty low-key. Wonder what they’ll do when the 600th rolls around?

    Nothing last forever including civilization, just ask the Romans. We have our modern day huns and visigoths. Our civilization is on the decline and what will follow will be much like the dark ages. Future generations will look at the skeletal remains of our society and wonder why their lives are complete shat compared to what it must have been like to live during our time. For someone living in the middle ages in their mud hut looking at the ruins of Roman cities it must have been baffling to them to wonder WTF happened. Unfortunately the Romans had liberalism too in a form
