Notre Dame Covers Christopher Columbus Mural

A major purpose of Martin Luther King Day is to displace Columbus Day from the holiday calendar with something more politically correct. So it is appropriate that on the eve of yesterday’s federal holiday, Notre Dame informed students that a historic mural of Christopher Columbus will be covered. This constitutes another step in the Founder of the New World’s frog march to the Memory Hole.

After specifically referencing MLK Day, Notre Dame President John Jenkins droned,

“The murals by Luigi Gregori that adorn the ceremonial entrance to Notre Dame’s Main Building depict the life and exploration of Christopher Columbus. …

“In recent years, however, many have come to see the murals as at best blind to the consequences of Columbus’ voyage for the indigenous peoples who inhabited this ‘new’ world and at worst demeaning toward them.”

Great historical figures are only to be remembered if they are politically fashionable at the moment. Otherwise, down the Memory Hole they go. According to current liberal dogma, spreading Western Civilization was the worst crime conceivable. Jenkins describes it as a “catastrophe.”

We are required to believe that the Stone Age savages of pre-Colombian times were better off running around in loin clothes, bashing each other’s heads in with rocks, not having discovered the wheel or even beer, and toothlessly dying of old age in their 20s than being corrupted by the cultural blight of white people.

Due entirely to the efforts of progressives, West Civilization is currently contracting, most dramatically in South Africa, but also in Europe, the USA, Canada, and Australia. Anyone who represents its growth must be erased. That’s why Christopher Columbus statues are subject to vandalism and removal.

The good news is that liberals may not have to change the name of Columbus, Ohio. In another generation of two, no one will remember who it was named after anyway.
