... and if the public schools weren't too kowtowed and PC to teach the kids any small tidbit of this important history, I'd have heard about it to write this post yesterday. Our apologies on behalf of the lame-ass public schools. I don't think they even mentioned to the kids how in Fourteen Hundred and Ninety-Two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. In addition, I did somehow think the date was a bit later in the month, as it should be celebrated on the right day. The Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria arrived in the New World on October 12th of 1492, 526 years ago this Friday. What a tremendous feat that was! It is especially a wonderful adventure story for the young boys that, to top it off, is true.
I realize that VDare's James Fulford article yesterday, Columbus Day: Columbus Is Hated Like Brett Kavanaugh—Because He's A "White Male" should have clued me in what day it was. (It has links to 17 other Columbus Day - or lack thereof - articles at the bottom.) I noticed also that this morning a writer named Kevin Beary has an article on unz.com, Life Styles: Native and Imposed, that goes well with Peak Stupidity's takes on Savage Natives and the Conquistadors followed up by A Visual Fisking of Cortez the Killer. In fact, I wish I'd read Mr. Beary's article before writing mine:
Today our children our being taught that the people who lived in the pre-Columbian Western Hemisphere were not “merciless Indian savages” (as Jefferson calls them in the Declaration of Independence), many of whom delighted in torture and cannibalism, but rather spiritually enlightened “native Americans” whose wise and peaceful nobility was rudely destroyed by invading European barbarians; that the Aztecs were not practitioners of human sacrifice and cannibalism on a scale so vast that the mind of the 20th-century American can hardly comprehend it, but rather defenders of an advanced civilization that was destroyed by brutal Spanish conquistadores; and that Africans were not uncultured slave traders and cannibals, but unappreciated builders of great empires.Read the rest, as they say, to find out, and comment if you wish. (Peak Stupidity has this interesting story of Columbus and a bold tactic to blind these ignorant natives with SCIENCE!)
But just how did these peoples live before they came into contact with Europeans? Although historical myth is ever more rapidly replacing factual history, not only in popular culture but also in our schools and universities, we may still find accurate historical accounts buried in larger libraries or in used book stores.
Of all places, the city of Columbus, Ohio, or I should say the PC and non-white idiots running the place, have decided that the city won't celebrate this great explorer (warning - Time Magazine exists!), the city's namesake. Will they rename the city next year? It'll cost a pretty penny to change the signs and maps, but hey, gotta be PC - money is no object. This stuff's getting really out-of-hand. The pushback will come, but it's taking its sweet time.
This kind of thing is exactly why one must either get the kids out of the Big-Ed industrial complex (Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 of our series on homeschooling), or spend lots of time un-brainwashing them at home. The more time you spend with them when they're little, the more they will trust you with the truth later when the PC brainwashing starts to get "mighty IN-tense".
Many decades later, this blogger still remembers the story of these brave Europeans who, with the backing of King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain, sailed the Ocean Sea on the Nina, the Pinta, and the Santa Maria.
If you want these last 500 years of enlightenment, or even 3,000 years of Western Civilization, to be known about in the years to come, heed these guys, and Teach your Children Well!
