Time to get rid of Christopher Columbus

Recommended Posts

Didn't really discover America.

Everybody knew the World was round during his time.

Really killed a lot of Native people and took many back to Spain as slaves.

Was a real nasty mofo.

Anyone disagree .. or have anything to add.

Columbus, Edison, Shakespeare, Lincoln, Churchill, da Vinci. Tear down Mt. Rushmore. All of them need to go.

Western Civilization died in 2020. It's just vultures and wolves fighting over the carcass now.

The world is going to sh*t, kozmiq leading the parade in a jester outfit.

I wonder what would happen to you on the ship that crossed the ocean at that time in history. Oh, this should be a movie. People like you thrust back into the past and put on the ship during the crossing. In that time and place.

All time travel movies are going to be absolutely ruined.  The only plot will be how everyone is white and racist.  Instead of asking "would you go back in time and kill Hitler?"  It will be "would you go back in time and all white people since they are all Hitler?"

And Columbus didn't. Magellan did.

Yeah, Columbus is largely a myth that I'm fine with seeing go.

He was very brave and a gifted sailor. He did a lot to open up the Western Hemisphere and bring civilization to it. They didn’t even have the wheel yet.

My great grandparents came over from Italy on a boat and they never mentioned Columbus. Grandparents - same thing.

You know a lot of fake Italians then.  I grew up with literally hundreds of family members who came from Italy.  I never heard one of them ever boast about Columbus.  They do make fun of a lot of South Philly and NYC Italians who never lived there and pretend that they're hard core Italians though.

Wow - essentially he is white male privilege because he wore a puffy jacket and mittens.  People are focking crazy.  Far left liberal ideology is a mental disorder. 

They are canceling people from history because they are white.  Don't let anyone fool you.

I'm willing to bet that his response will be similar to my family's.  Did you ever notice how much Philly Italians play up the mafia angle?  :rolleyes:

I only see him once a year or so but I’ll try to remember to ask.

Haven’t noticed that it Philly but I went to school with some people in NY/NJ who never stopped talking about family members with mob connections.

Yeah, it's pretty big up there too.  You're probably right that it's worse up there than in Philly though... I just don't go up there anywhere as much.

I moved to Philly as an adult - that’s probably the only difference. I’m sure the teenagers and mental children here brag about it too. The wannabe thugs I see in Philly are too dumb to organize. Selling meth and purse snatching is more their speed.

One thing I would say on topic is that if the country just removed Columbus Day as a National Holiday, aside from Columbus' descendants maybe…. maybe, no one would really care.  I believe everyone is up to speed enough, and have been for well over 40 years, to know what Columbus did or didn't do.  The only thing people would care about is losing the paid holiday.  If Biden came out today and said we're replacing Columbus Day with Juneteenth, no one would be upset.  In fact, most of the population would be happy because they'll still get a paid day off that they don't actually care about... but it'll be in the Summer.  It's a win for everyone.  The black people can be happy because the Democrats pandered to them a little more.  Didn't really give them anything, but they'll be happy.  White guilter liberals can be happy because they'll be giving back for something they never took.  Reasonable white people (Conservatives), will just a paid day off in the Summer.  No one loses.
