Oh, Columbus Day…. Every year the oh so wonderful U.S. of A. closes its banks, federal buildings, schools, etc. in celebration of a thief, rapist, and slaughterer. Columbus had, in his letters, referred to the natives as items of a trade, not as humans, and is also responsible for an epidemic of Syphilis. I don’t approve, and those damn kids need to get their asses back in school and learn the REAL history of our country… The Vikings had already reached America 500-ish years before, and if you still thought the world was flat in 1492, you were a proper idiot.
The Oatmeal has a great infographic further explaining the atrocities this man has committed.
“Columbus Day was established in the 1930’s by a male-only Catholic organization known as the Knights of Columbus. They wanted a male, Catholic role model their kids could look up to, so they pressured Roosevelt into making it a federal holiday. Columbus Day is not an American tradition. It’s a recent mistake.”
As an avid truth-seeker, I encourage you all to take a little time to educate yourself, as well as bring the light to others- especially the children who are being taught just the opposite. Christopher Columbus was NOT a good man and does not deserve a national holiday.
Knowledge is power, and we, the people, need to take that back.
