Happy Indigenous Peoples’ Day all you comrades out there! CBS NEWS announced that more cities are “recognizing Native Americans on Columbus Day” to celebrate the contributions of indigenous cultures.
This is part of the leftist populist movement to recognize Native Americans, fake indigenous peoples’ and to change our culture. The movement is to meant take us out of traditional America and into the hand-wringing world of the dreary left.
The Italians and America’s European ancestors are forgotten in all this.
Nine cities – nine leftist cities – recognize Indigenous Peoples Day and hope to “nudge” us into the moaning, groaning world of the dreary left.
Albuquerque, Portland, Oregon, St. Paul, Minnesota, and Olympia, Washington, Minneapolis, Seattle and others now recognize the day.
CBS tried to say it was driven by Native Americans but it’s driven by leftists, some of whom are Native Americans.
The celebrants say it is the start of something “greater” and that it is.
If it were only to honor Native Americans, who could object? We do honor them and the sacrifices they’ve made and the tribulations they were made to suffer.
Columbus Day honors the Europeans who came here and struggled quietly to build a new and great country. Indigenous Peoples’ Day rejects what is good about our past and our history.
A student group at the University of New Mexico wanted to celebrate Indigenous ‘Peoples’ Resistance and Resilience Day’ last year, an idea driven by leftist professors. The title alone clearly shows what they are trying to do. Leftist Hispanics are also trying to say they too are indigenous people which is nonsense. Indigenous Hispanics are already here, living in the border states.
It’s getting so ridiculous that even Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is trying to say Muslims discovered America. Once we lose our identity, anything goes!
Holidays, especially Columbus Day, are important in preserving what we view as important in history and they play a role in creating and perpetuating events and ideas. They preserve history. They give us a sense of who we are as a nation. Having a “sense” of history is part of what constitutes history. We have leftists who are doing their best to rewrite it. Their demonization of holidays is an important first step in the process.
If they get to abolish Columbus Day, more holidays will follow. They’ve already transformed Washington’s birthday into the anonymous President’s Day; they’ve added labor day – reminiscent of the Marxist International Workers’ day; and they are striving to have a national holiday in honor of a Marxist union leader – Cesar Chavez – whose accomplishments are sketchy at best.
July 4th is the one truly patriotic day and it’s on the hit list. Leftist history teacher and America-hater, Bill Bigelow of the Zinn Education Project, wants fireworks stopped on July 4th, which is actually Independence Day, because we are all supposedly too war-weary.
He would also have us believe that George Washington was a war criminal and Thomas Jefferson plagiarized the Declaration of Independence.
Leftists hate Independence Day as much as they hate the Founding Fathers who were just rich white men to them. The Founding Fathers didn’t accomplish anything according to their creed, the Founding Fathers exploited the collective.
It isn’t just holidays the leftists are after. They don’t like anything patriotic, including The Star Spangled Banner.
Two words for buyers of this fake holiday – buyer beware!
