Celebrate Columbus Day

Like everything good and decent about America and Western Civilization, its origins and history, there is a left-wing movement that seeks to denigrate, discredit and revise history concerning it. Such is naturally the case with the great explorer we celebrate today; Christopher Columbus.

Columbus, according to these haters of the West, inaugurated the slavery and extermination of Native Americans, and ushered in an age of diseases such as smallpox killing innocent American Indians.

It's a damned good thing he didn't kill 80,000 virgins a year like the Aztecs. But I digress.

Did Columbus "discover" America? I think we can say with some certainty that he did not. However his explorations opened the door of America to Europe.

Italian-Americans celebrate Columbus as one of the important contributions Italians have made to the origins of this nation. And so they should, because without the bravery and fortitude to explore the unknown such as that of Europeans of the age of Columbus, civilization would never have developed as it has.

Radical Islam has no such heroes. Maybe that is why they still live in the 1490's.

Defy the left, and celebrate Columbus Day.

Yup - Good job HH..
if you read the Communist Goals stated in 1963
http://www.glennbeck.com/news/03212002.shtml

you'll find that discrediting our founders and our history is one of those goals
excerpt:
29) Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30) Discredit the American founding fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man".

31) Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of "the big picture": Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

Good point bob.

I actually saw a sign waver for Ron Paul yesterday. One lonely pathetic sign waver... talking on his cell phone. It made me glad.
