Columbus Day Weekend

On Monday the United States celebrates Columbus Day, a national holiday. On October 12, 1492, Christopher Columbus landed in the New World.

Some history about Columbus Day:

A U.S. national holiday since 1937, Columbus Day commemorates the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the New World on October 12, 1492. The Italian-born explorer … intended to chart a western sea route to China, India and the fabled gold and spice islands of Asia; instead, he landed in the Bahamas …

The first Columbus Day celebration took place in 1792, when New York‘s Columbian Order–better known as Tammany Hall–held an event to commemorate the historic landing’s 300th anniversary. …

In 1892, President Benjamin Harrison issued a proclamation encouraging Americans to mark the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ voyage with patriotic festivities, writing, “On that day let the people, so far as possible, cease from toil and devote themselves to such exercises as may best express honor to the discoverer and their appreciation of the great achievements of the four completed centuries of American life.”

In 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday …

Columbus Day remains a national holiday. But for how long? Alt-left activists plan to disrupt commemorations of the day and to deface monuments and statues set up to honor the explorer.

Violent left-wing anarchists have announced a nationwide campaign to deface Christopher Columbus statues this coming Monday.

Five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, according to Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.

What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.

That  sounds like a criminal conspiracy to commit, at best, vandalism. At worst? What is the FBI planning to do about this?

So much for valuing diversity!

Oddly enough, as some here in the U.S. denigrate Columbus and his achievements, many Hispanic nations honor Columbus and celebrate the anniversary of his arrival in the New World:

The landing is celebrated as … “Día de la Raza” (“Day of the Race”) in many countries in Latin America, as “Día de la Hispanidad” and “Fiesta Nacional” in Spain, where it is also the religious festivity of la Virgen del Pilar, as Día de las Américas (Day of the Americas) in Belize and Uruguay, as Día del Respeto a la Diversidad Cultural (Day of Respect for Cultural Diversity) in Argentina, and as Giornata Nazionale di Cristoforo Colombo or Festa Nazionale di Cristoforo Colombo in Italy and in the Little Italys around the world

Hispanic nations seem to have a much more enlightened attitude towards the meaning of cultural diversity and “race,” in that they honor and are proud of all the various cultures and races that fused over the centuries to create what they call “la Raza” or their Hispanic identity.

If, as promised, domestic terrorists in the U.S. do carry out their threatened campaign of destruction on Monday, one wonders how the authorities in the mostly-Democrat-run cities will respond?

For the most part, left-wing activists have thus far been able to break laws, disturb the peace, attack citizens and police officers, destroy property, riot, and even commit arson, while police were ordered to “stand down” and let them “get their message out.”

For how long will mayors of these cities look the other way while alt-left thugs break the law and in doing so violate the rights of all the law-abiding citizens?

For how long will Attorney General Sessions and the Trump administration look the other way as far-left anarchists, antifa groups, Black Lives Matter, and other so-called “peaceful protesters” riot, vandalize, march in streets and on highways to deliberately disrupt traffic, block store entrances and maraud through shopping centers, shut down the free speech of other citizens (as in Berkeley), and deliberately make others “uncomfortable,” thus violating their victims’ civil rights, all in order to get their way?

In any case, while we still have this national holiday to celebrate:

Enjoy your Columbus Day weekend.

    • What took them so long? They wanted the perks (so to speak) that came from complying or from keeping traps shut. The women of courage are those who resisted him and ended up going into obscurity when THEIR careers were trashed. Mind you, of course, nobody knew what was happening to other women, but get real. Paltrow, Jolie, Arquette, Sorvino. They’re ALL from connected show biz families. Do we really believe that they couldn’t have pushed back against him had they wanted to? Given all the “rumors” over the years, didn’t these women ever share notes? In the meantime, his atrocities continued. I’ve said it before. Women are NOT victims unless they allow themselves to be (or are completely overpowered, in which case FIGHT BACK and then CALL THE COPS). Grabbing their bodies? SLUG THE S.O.B. Propositioning them? WALK THE EFF OUT. Standing there and watching him J.O.? Laugh, scream, cry, make noise to get attention. That will stop him cold. For goodness sake. Have they NO self-respect? If they don’t, then why should anybody else? Today, there’s the ridiculous story about one of the women calling out Matt Damon for not speaking out! Did she?

    • Watching this expose. Its GREAT!

    • 627 counts of failing to respond to a subpoena? Don’t hold your breath waiting for her to be charged. But wait! They probably just ASKED her and didn’t subpoena them, leaving her an out. She did, however, say she had turned everything over. But wait! That wasn’t under oath, either. What a master of evading the laws everybody else has to follow.

        • Healthly MUCH ???? YIKES!!!!!!! ^^^^^^^^

          Eminem has spoken publicly about his Addiction to prescription drugs, including Vicodin, Ambien and Valium.[244] According to friend and fellow D12 member Proof, Eminem first “sobered up” in 2002.[245] During the production of 8 Mile, the rapper, working 16 hours a day, developed insomnia. An associate gave him an Ambien tablet which “knocked [him] out”, encouraging him to obtain a prescription. This was Eminem’s first experience of drug addiction, which would affect him for several years. Near the end of production on Encore, he would “just go into the studio and goof off [with] a pocketful of pills”. Eminem began taking the drugs to “Feel Normal”, taking a “Ridiculous amount […] I could consume anywhere from 40 to 60 Valium [in a day]. Vicodin, maybe 30”. The drugs would put him to sleep for no more than two hours, after which he would take more. The rapper’s weight increased to 230 pounds (100 kg), and he was regularly eating fast food: “The kids behind the counter knew me – it wouldn’t even faze them. Or I’d sit up at Denny’s or Big Boy and just eat by myself. It was sad”. Eminem became less recognizable due to his weight gain, and once overheard two teenagers arguing about whether or not it was him: “Eminem ain’t fat.”[16]

          In December 2007, Eminem was hospitalized after a Methadone overdose he had first bought from a dealer who had told him it was “just like Vicodin, and easier on [your] liver”. The rapper continued to buy more, until he Collapsed in his bathroom one night and was rushed to the hospital. Doctors there told him he had ingested the equivalent of four bags of Heroin and was “about two hours from Dying”. After missing Christmas with his children, Eminem checked himself out of the facility weak and not fully detoxed. He tore the meniscus in his knee after falling asleep on his sofa, requiring surgery; after he returned home, he had a Seizure. His Drug use “ramped right back to where it was before” within a month. Eminem began to attend church meetings to get clean,???? but after he was asked for autographs he sought help from a rehabilitation counselor. He began an exercise program which emphasized running. Elton John was a mentor during this period, calling Eminem once a week to check on him.[16]

          In the book My Son Marshall, My Son Eminem, his mother stated that he has struggled with Bipolar Disorder throughout his life.?? She said it worsened after his ex-wife Kim Mathers gave birth to their daughter Hailie.[246]

          • What about that cultural appropriation, btw? I suppose it’s okay for that white boy, so long as he’s trashing Trump. What about the sexist and racist and homophobic lyrics? Oh, well. Nevermind. Just like how Weinstein tries to buy his way out by promising to go after the NRA. Liberals will excuse ANYTHING so long as you’re on their “side.” btw, Weinstein left the country to get help with his “sex addiction.” Polanski style? Will he EVER return? Too bad HE wasn’t on the travel watch list. Conveniently, all the authorities were limping around, dragging their feet, and not CHARGING him with anything. Guess rape isn’t a crime anymore. It’s said that the statute of limitations didn’t run out of at least some of these accusations. It didn’t stop them from charging Cosby.

            • LeBron James, Ellen DeGeneres & more respond to Eminem’s takedown of Trump …. ha ha ha ha ha ??? small minds stick 2 gether 4-ever!

              While social media waits for Donald Trump to respond to Eminem — who called out the president in a freestyle rap during Tuesday night’s BET Hip-Hop Awards — there were plenty of others who reacted on Twitter.

              The Detroit-born rapper filmed a four-minute-&-34-second long video, which debuted during the awards show. Eminem, whose given name is Marshall Mathers, blasted Trump for everything from ignoring tragedies in favor of “causing a Twitter storm” to “support for the Klansman” & slandering Hillary Clinton. He also refers to Trump as “this racist 94-year-old grandpa” in the profanity-filled freestyle rap filmed in a parking garage in Eminem’s home city.

              Within hours of airing on YouTube, it was already the No. 1 trending video with more than 1.5 million views.

              Trump, known to respond to his critics on Twitter, has yet to tweet
              about the video. But plenty of others have, including LeBron James,
              who referred to one of Eminem’s lines in his tweet.

              “Racism is the only thing he’s Fantastic 4 (fantastic for),” James wrote, posting an image of The Thing, the orange rocky fictional superhero.

              Ellen DeGeneres reacted with a heart emoji.
              George Takei tweeted, “A powerful indictment of the President, indeed.”
              Comedian Bill Eichner said Eminem had been reading his tweets.

              • After Eminem picked up on Trump’s feud with NFL players who kneel during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is largely credited for starting the protest movement, tweeted a link to the video.

                “I appreciate you Eminem,” he wrote alongside the link. …^^^^^^^

                Other rappers ChIM-ed IN, including Sean “Diddy” Combs, who tweeted, “This is for Collin (sic) ball up a fist!!” <<<<< sucker PUNCHES!!!???

    • Yeah. Very interesting, huh? Who was trying to get there before it was re-examined and to get what?

      • Watching the 2017 CBC Prayer Breakfast, I witnessed the same absurd lie that America is still a hellhole of racism for blacks. The “And Still I Rise” theme means blacks stand strong despite being persecuted daily in America.

        All that hate promoted at the Congressional Black Caucus Prayer Breakfast was insidiously shrouded in Christianity. As a Christian,
        I found the so-called “prayer breakfast” a sad, evil deception.

        As a black American, in the name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, I command Leftists to, “Let my people go!”
