I don't care what the schools do (actually, a little bit, which I'll report on later), the Feral Gov't, the universities, and anyone else. Over here at Peak Stupidity, Columbus day is celebrated ... though one time it was a bit belatedly. It has been since this blog started in late November of '16, so here are posts from 2017 (the belated one), 2018, and 2019.
I also note that 2 of my go-to sites have posts in celebration, VDare here, as usual from writer James Fulford, and surprisingly Ron Unz or his software put this nice Jared Taylor post on top. Excellent!
Let the PC people do their thing (up to the point of trashing statues, I know, they've been there, done that ...) I’ve this to say, though, about the hard-core political types who have trashed the holiday and the accomplishments of Captain Columbus for 3 decades running:
It’s one thing to dispute that the man was a nice guy, that he treated the natives well, or that he did everything for unselfish reasons. It’s another to simply try to stomp out any history of the amazing accomplishment of that 1st voyage 528 years ago. It was 5 weeks across the Ocean Blue with the biggest vessel, the Santa Maria. being a boat of estimated 150 tonne (metric ton) displacement, a hull length of a little over 60 ft, and a beam of 18 ft powered solely by sail and with celestial and dead (deduced) reckoning for navigation.*
Shoot, most people today wouldn’t be comfortable setting foot on a modern fiberglass boat this size with GPS, auto-tiller, auto-trimming sails, and even GretaThunberg as their Captain Courageous for a trip across the Ocean Green. (“Green” for Greta – anyone remember Greta?)
That is not to mention the unfathomable beneficial impact that Columbus’ and subsequent European explorers had on the future of the Americas. To leave the Western Hemisphere as lands full of mostly violent savages would have been a sin.
I believe that most of the people who fight politically against the Columbus Day holiday are losers who have never read ANY books about the man with any political view. They are too stupid to actually read books. Otherwise, we could discuss it, calmly, right here, bitches!
