Happy Columbus Day 2017 – and yes, naysayers you’re wrong

It’s Columbus Day in the USA, and low and behold in the year 2017, there has been debate about this national holiday that we’ve enjoyed for years. It’s the endless assault on our history by those who do not think that it is a problem to dismantle what has been known by historians.

It would almost be like fans and press today saying that what we know about baseball all these years is wrong. Abner Doubleday, did he have a big hand in the game of baseball? Well, perhaps some may think he didn’t. Is that the same way that historians are trying to mar Christopher Columbus? Dragging his name through a sordid tale of being a ‘slave owner’ and a ‘mass murderer’ as he was described in this article on

Where do these people that write articles like the one listed above get off telling us all these vicious lies and false accusations? Columbus did sail to the New World, that is a fact. I recently saw a fascinating story on Columbus and where his remains are actually buried. It was a fascinating study from scientists that claim he is in either Spain or Italy or perhaps down in the Caribbean.

Whatever the case, Columbus was real, he was relevant and he was an explorer who sailed in a time without GPS coordinates, without instant internet connections, and the modern sailing conveniences. He had to do things the old fashioned way, a compass, the stars, and a little bit of guidance from the god of the seas that kept his sails full of breezes that took him around the globe many times. What can these detractors of him boast of? They couldn’t find their way out of a paper bag if the truth is known. They should learn to get a life and not impose their idiotic views on a susceptible reader who may interpret their bs as some semblance of truth.

Make no mistake of it, there is a mini-revolution going on in America right now, between the forces of those who wish to violently express their will on the public, let’s not stand down to these citizens, but refuse to let their wills be imposed on the majority.

Craziness knows no bounds on this holiday now with writings like these from:

ABC News report from New York City

Fox 61 news report of vandalism
