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.

Dr. June Terpstra

Historical American icon, Christopher Columbus, and his brother Bartholomew,
mass murdered some two million of the Taino people on the island of
Hispaniola in just four years. In their quest to kill and torture as many people
as possible they built extremely wide gibbets, hanging victims with feet barely
touching the ground amidst fire caused a slow strangling burning death.

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.

  1. Thank you so much for sharing this information. I just wrote a feature film screenplay on this exact subject called, “The Dark Diary of Columbus” and submitted it to Amazon.com’s screenplay contest. Where did you find this image?

    Thanks so much!
