Happy Columbus Day
As a Dominican from the island Columbus first landed on in the Americas, Hispaniola, I say Happy Columbus Day to you from the bottom of my heart.
It’s no wonder, after seeing our actions as a country in Iraq, Afghanistan, Vietnam, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki, that we made Columbus’ conquest of the Americas as something to celebrate.
By the way, it’s absolutely laughable that children are taught that Columbus discovered America when “the notion of America actually being “discovered” by any of those early groups is a dubious one, when one considers that the entire Western Hemisphere was already populated by Native Americans, who probably made the actual discovery thousands of years earlier.”
So happy Columbus Day, a day to celebrate another conquering genocidal maniac.
