The Unpersoning of Christopher Columbus Continues

The ultimate villain is not Robert E. Lee, who merely defended his Virginia homeland, but Christopher Columbus, whose crime was to allow Western Civilization to expand into the New World. If no one had achieved what Columbus did, North America would still be populated by half-starved Stone Age savages and the hated United States would not exist. Consequently, La-La Land is the latest city to proclaim that Columbus Day will henceforth be fundamentally transformed into Indigenous Peoples Day:

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to eliminate Columbus Day from the city calendar, siding with activists who view the explorer as a symbol of genocide for native peoples in North America and elsewhere.

Over the objections of Italian American civic groups, the council made the second Monday in October a day in L.A. to commemorate “indigenous, aboriginal and native people.”

Although Italian Americans seem to be the only ones who put up a fight against the campaign to unperson Christopher Columbus, he represents all Americans of European heritage, or who appreciate living in a civilized country where life isn’t as nasty, brutish, and short as it was for pre-Columbian Indians.

As liberal bureauweenies do their part to advance the cultural Marxist agenda by destroying our heritage, so do their street thug colleagues:

A statue of celebrated explorer Christopher Columbus was found beheaded in a Yonkers park.

Lifelong resident Pat Gamberdella said he called police when he noticed the head of the statue torn off.

“It’s very upsetting that American values have sunken to the level they are today,” Gamberdella said. “It’s unfortunate because I did go up there and I did see it all smashed.”

The head to the bronze-colored statue was found discarded next to a plastic bag in Columbus Memorial Park, a mile north of the Bronx.

This is hardly the first Columbus statue to be attacked since the Left’s War on History went into overdrive following Charlottesville. Elsewhere in New York, Columbus Circle is likely to be erased.

There is no aspect of American or Western Culture that these malefactors will not desecrate, demonized, and destroy. Progressives are doing to America what Muslims did to the rich and varied, mainly Christian cultures that once flourished across the Middle East. Everything that we fail to defend will be lost, starting with our pride.

    The ultimate villain is anyone stupid enough to believe this bilge, and the libucation system that made them that way.

    Every moonbat hypocrite in the United States should check out their ancestry immediately and emigrate forthwith back to Europe, Africa or wherever it is they originally came from.
    Do they not realize that their mere presence in North America is polluting the lands of Native Americans?
    Michael Moore, get back to England, Scotland or wherever your fat genes originally came from. Sharpton and Farrakhan get back to darkest mud-hut malaria land. Oprah get back to your tribe of fat-assed women.
    Any other takers, or are all you moonbat clowns just pretenders whose pants do not match your mouths?

    Columbus was pretty nasty but not nearly as bad as Christ! He attacked the very foundations of what would eventually evolve into the current international banking system! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c345a5910872e0d42f60c2628acab06cb1245c0c4af76267dc2327b7af32782d.jpg

    The ironic thing is that there would be no hispanics (Spanish settlers in the Americas) without Columbus. Does the left realize that? After all Columbus was employed by SPAIN first to find a path to the far east so that SPAIN could expand its trade. And THEN to help settle and exploit the Americas for SPAIN which is where the hispanics came from (otherwise they would just be Indians).
    Therefore hispanics should be PROUD of their employee Christopher Columbus who made their entire lives possible (the nation of COLOMBIA is NAMED after him) and helped to found the countries they now call home. Therefore this an attack on the hispanic people and their culture. Why do you think they all speak SPANISH?
    BTW. England, France and Holland all rejected and disowned Columbus. That’s why the new world was named America and not Columbia.

    As a teacher I resent that every other government employee gets Columbus Day off, except for us teachers. To quote Whoopie Goldberg, “You have to be some kind of racist not to want to take a day off work.”

  6. geeknerd says:

    Columbus Day should be an Hispanic holiday, since Columbus allowed the “white” European Spaniards to rape, er, mix with the native peoples to create the Hispanic peoples.

  7. geeknerd says:

    There’s also British Columbia, eh?

  8. SineWaveII says:

    Indeed.

  9. Occam's Stubble says:

    I don’t think the purpose was to expand Spain’s trade. There had been an overland route to the far east for a long time. The other big event in 1492 was that the Spaniards finally drove the Muslims off the Iberian peninsula. Since much of that overland route went through Muslim lands, my guess is the Spaniards figured they weren’t welcome there anymore.

  10. Occam's Stubble says:

    When asking what would Jesus do, remember that turning over tables and chasing people with a whip are among the options.

  11. SineWaveII says:

    Not disagreeing with you just expanding on your comment :–)
    Columbus set out to prove that one could reach India by sailing west and traveling around the globe. He wasn’t wrong he just didn’t know that the Americas were in the way.
    But Spain hired him because they were seeking to expand their trade with the far east (which was becoming difficult for all of the reasons you just named) and they believed that being the first to establish a global trade route would make them very wealthy and powerful. And it did for a time.

  12. Spiny Norman says:

    The Turkish sultans had made the overland route exceedingly unpleasant and wildly expensive. A sea route would be much more lucrative. The Portuguese had already sailed around Africa to India, and claimed a monopoly on that route. The Spanish were more than happy to look for another route to China. No one in Europe expected to find a whole ‘nother continent in the way.

    (Although they should have, since the Vikings had already been there, and their journals were fairly well known in European academia.)

  13. KHarn says:

    “Miss Liberty” was also known as “Columbia”.
