I couldn’t let the week of “Columbus Day Sales” pass without acknowledging the genesis of this now contentious holiday.  Why has Columbus Day become so controversial? Why has this intrepid adventurer come to be considered a villain rather than a hero?

Why should we apologize for taking the so called indigenous peoples from the Stone age to the modern age?

What sort of wheel did the Indians use on their hunting trips?

“Bill Ayers” and “Ethical Action” do not belong in a title of a book.

Yah show me the first air conditioned tepee and the date they plugged it into a wall socket. Did it pre-date all that horrible colonialism? Hypocritical spoiled brat b**tards.

Previously unseen disease, devastation, and violence were introduced to their lives

Somehow they never mention the diseases, such as syphilis, that were acquired in the Americas and taken back to Europe. This business of "previously unseen disease" was a two-way street.

Nor was violence unheard of among the American Indians before Columbus. They were among the most violent people who ever lived. Just consider the Mayans, for instance.

I feel no guilt over actions undertaken by other people hundreds of years ago.

First they came for the Redskins, and I didn't say anything, because I wasn't a Redskin.

Then they came for the Russets...

PC should be unveiled as what it really is, carefully engineered Perspective Change which is reinforced every time anybody uses the PC chosen term. If people ever open their eyes to that effect, then they not be so easily manipulated.

I’m not talking about common courtesy, but the whole movement that is designed to change the perspective of people.

First, they came for the Confederate flag. We saw a ton of so-called “conservatives” joining the chorus against the flag. Pretty soon everything associated with America prior to the so-called “civil rights” movement will be banished from sight and thought, down the memory hole.

Only if Conservatives allow themselves to be intimidated into abandoning their historical symbols, terminology and values.

Lol! Just spent time at Plymoth Mass. Hoped to see a memorial to William Bradford, but only got to see a larger than life statue of Massossoit and an alter to the genocide brought by Columbus and the Pilgrims. Then I argued with a lady working on Mayflower 2 who told me the Pilgrims were evil for bringing Smallpox blankets!? When I informed her that most of the Indians died of smallpox prior to the landing, she did not seem moved by facts.

The country is flipping fast, like France in 1790
