Goodbye Columbus, Hello Leftist Indigenous Peoples’


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!

  • Instead of naming a holiday after them fraudulently, why not lift them out of the poverty and squalor they live in. And I don’t mean the entitlements the left gives them for their votes that continues to keep them in poverty and keeps them uninformed. How about quality education, training and job opportunities. But that will never happen just as it will never happen for blacks, as giving them those entitlements to just get by will still buy them the votes, as proven by all the Democrat run poverty-stricken cities where they are kept on the plantation under Democrat control.

  • Factoids: those indigent people now called “Native Americans” are not indigenous. They are decendants of the illegal aliens, who came over on the land bridge from Tibet and Mongolia. They are cannibals and ate the peaceful peoples that were already in North America. They are quite happy to live in squalor on the Injun reservations and suck the teat of Uncle Sambo. They have no work ethic, for the most part, and are happy to remain on the dole.
    I have no love for Christopher Columbus/Cristobal Colon, and do not celebrate his holiday. He was an Italian mercinary, in the employ of Queen Isabella of Spain, and never made landfall on the North American continent. I prefer to recognize Lief Erikson as the discoverer of America and think we should rename the holiday in his honor.
    I wonder what Greg Gianforte (R), the next Governor of Montana, will have to say about that. I will ask him. The Italian influence, in Montana, has totally diminished, thanks to the EPA shuttering all our mines. and the Scandanavian voting-block has the power to change the holiday. We are at work on that. Stay tuned, ND. Progressives in MN and WI need not apply: your minds are too warped to think clearly!
