Columbus Day 2021

Today the United States (still) celebrates Columbus Day as 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 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proclaimed Columbus Day a national holiday …

Columbus Day remains a national holiday. But for how long?

Joe Biden has issued a competing proclamation, naming (renaming?) Columbus Day as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.” His proclamation begins:

Since time immemorial, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians have built vibrant and diverse cultures — safeguarding land, language, spirit, knowledge, and tradition across the generations.

Why can’t the “indigenous people” have their own day, Joe? Why must they share with Columbus?

In any case, Ole Joe needs to get his history and identities straight. Is his proclamation meant to honor all “indigenous people” of the United States and its territories? If so, then he’s left out some groups, such as the Samoans and Chamorros.

Or is it intended to honor only “indigenous people” of what are now U.S. states, leaving out territories?

Whoops!

The “woke” who wrote this proclamation for Joe must not have considered such nuances. Would these omissions be microaggressions or macroaggressions?

Let’s consider the fact that nobody knows exactly who were the actual indigenous people of what’s now the USA, because all of these people, from various ethnic groups, from various races, from various parts of the old world, arrived at various times over tens of thousands of years. Some even arrived after the Vikings landed on the east coast of this continent and only a few hundred years before Columbus arrived in the “NewWorld.”

If we define “indigenous” as meaning first, then many if not most of the groups identified as “indigenous” arrived after the actual indigenous people, whoever they were.

Technically speaking, we are all immigrants to this hemisphere.

Inconvenient truth.

Also technically, Columbus never met up with any of the “indigenous peoples” that Biden is honoring with his proclamation. Columbus visited various places in the Bahamas, West Indies, Cuba, Central America, Jamaica, but not what’s now the USA.

Biden’s proclamation excludes the very people, the Taino, for whom the arrival of Columbus was a death knell. The Taino lived in Puerto Rico, which is territory of the United States.

Whoops, again!

While Joe’s apologizing and honoring,  we must wonder whether, in honor of Indigenous Peoples’ Day, Kamala Harris will take this opportunity to apologize for her own ancestors who held slaves in Jamaica, some of whom were of mixed African and “indigenous” ancestry. She is at least arguably where she is today based upon the privilege she derived from being a descendant of plantation owners who became rich on the backs of “Creole” slave labor, according to her father.

It’s ironic that Joe is honoring “indigenous people around the world,” in which case he’s honoring many of us, who may (also) descend from the First Nation of Europe: the indigenous Neanderthals.

Why, thank you, Joe! Please do remember that you have now proclaimed your “respect for the human rights” of Europe’s indigenous, since you’ve been so busy stepping all over our human rights with your mandates.

Is this proclamation of Biden’s meant to further divide Americans, forcing them to choose which holiday to celebrate? In other words, to choose up sides?

Knowing Biden and his ilk, this is most likely his intent. He’s no uniter; in fact, he’s the Divider in Chief.

Will leftist activists “celebrate” today by defacing what monuments remain to honor Columbus, if any have survived the rampages of the ignorant-but-woke?

Oddly enough, as some here in the U.S. denigrate Columbus and his achievements, many Hispanic nations, among others, 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.

Those 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. Anyway …

Enjoy your Columbus Day!

Oh, yeah, and remember:

  1. Happy Columbus Day !

    • Not to worry, though! They’re not “recognizing” them as a government. Also, despite him sending them millions of OUR dollars, to go with billions of OUR equipment, they’re not going to cooperate with us on interdicting ISIS. Well, who would expect them to, given they’re the same people with the same goals?

  2. How long before banned? (TCTH is banned on Twitter for a week just for reporting the truth about this non-strike strike.)

        Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg on Paid Leave Since Mid-August amid Supply Crisis >> that’s OK > U NEVER DID A THING SO FAR!!!

        As cargo ships congested at U.S. ports, creating an unprecedented supply-chain crisis, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was on Paid Leave to spend time with his husband, Chasten, & their 2 newborn babies.

        After weeks of people questioning Buttigieg’s whereabouts as crisis after crisis mounted, Politico’s West Wing Playbook confirmed on Thursday that the transportation secretary W A S >>>>> “Lying Low.” !!!
        https://www.breitbart.com/politics/2021/10/14/transportation-secretary-pete-buttigieg-on-paid-leave-since-mid-august-amid-supply-crisis/

        • The entire “supply chain” MUST take second place to Butt-gig’s paternity leave. Pity the poor child children, btw.

          TCTH has a great, insightful article explaining why there’s the big backup of ships in LA, and it’s not because of COVID (obviously, since the pandemic has been around since early last year, but the backup of cargo hasn’t). Bottom line: It’s because CA, always ahead of the nation in progressive stupidity, mandated that half the fleet of trucks carrying cargo FROM the ships can no longer legally operate in CA because … they are polluters! So, the entire nation must be held hostage, face shortages, have Christmas ruined, and all because of the woke idiots in CA who can’t even foresee ANY possible damage that their stupid policies will cause. What would it be like to play chess with these idiots for thousands of dollars? You’re guaranteed to win because they cannot think even one step ahead.

          The ships are backed up because no trucks to take the freight.

          There’s no reason to offload because there’s nowhere to store all the freight until there’re enough trucks to carry it onward.

          They’re lying about the reason (so what’s new? They lie about everything.) They must lie because otherwise the fault will be placed exactly where it deserves to be placed: Newsome, Biden, all woke progressives, the globalists, progressive policies on the environment that are killing OUR economy while enriching every other country that’s not full of stupid progressives.

          Some companies foresaw this debacle and wisely re-routed their ships to states where there is no shortage of trucks that are LEGAL to drive. (Note that the media, when they talk about trucks, claim it’s a truck DRIVER shortage, not that it’s a shortage of trucks ALLOWED to operate in CA.)

          But re-routing ships from the far east means that the ships have to go through the Panama Canal. Remember who controls it now? China.

          It adds tons of money to the cost of shipping and necessarily means we must pay more for the goods that CA deliberately caused to be shipped more expensively.

          It’s INSANE. Will people FINALLY WAKE UP?

    • Was it a kilt? 🙂

      Did you see the story (somewhere) about the man who was sexually harassed by multiple women while wearing his ethnically correct kilt? I remember now. It was Dear Abby or one of those other letter answering columns. The guy’s female companion was angry how women in public accost her male kilt-wearing friend, pulling up his kilt, exposing him. She said he once actually was charged with indecent exposure after a woman pulled his kilt off, but the charges were dropped when he explained what happened to the cops. What gets me is that women think it’s okay to sexually harass men but that when the opposite happens–MeToo!

  13. …. Inspiration: About Living ….. from MATTIE S
    This beautiful Poem is by Mattie Stepanik, the young man who died at the age of 13 from a rare genetic disease. Before his death in 2004 he had published seven volumes of poetry & was called “the most extraordinary person I have ever met” by President Jimmy Carter. Mattie began speaking poetry at the age of three & inspired many, despite tremendous personal family tragedy: three older siblings died of the same genetic disease when
    he was very young. His poetry would be deeply moving and significant even without his story, but knowing his tremendous insight & courage it is astonishing. ❤️

    I wanted to live
    To be
    One hundred and one
    Years old.
    But that is no
    Longer my goal.
    When I die,
    I die.

    I cannot predict.
    I cannot control.
    I cannot change
    What is to be,
    Which is what it is
    And will be
    What it will be.
    I wanted to live
    To be,
    And not die.

    But,
    While I’m alive,
    I live
    To the fullest.
    I treasure each sunrise.
    I remember each sunset.
    I dance every dance and
    I sing every song and
    I celebrate every moment.
    I wanted to live
    To be.

    And,
    I am spending my time
    On earth before death
    Living,
    Rather than dying,
    And not wasting a moment
    Of the precious gifts
    Of time and
    Of life and
    Of being, for now.

    • Beautiful, Zenway. ty ❤

    • That IS beautiful and so wise for one so young. I’m thinking now of William Shatner who similarly was so poetic after entering space, seeing the beautiful blue earth, surrounded by its blue skin, fall away into blackness and nothingness, which he called “death.” He talked about how he’s close to death, being 90 years old. Obviously, Bill’s still appreciating and spending his every moment on earth LIVING. It was so touching how he said that space (the abyss) is death while the beautiful blue earth is life. He didn’t expect the trip to be as it was–shooting quickly through the earth’s blue covering and then suddenly being blasted into total blackness. It is humbling. Food for thought. We are so tiny and fragile here on our beautiful blue ball.

    • Oh, wow. GREAT!

    • Again: They NEVER have any foresight about the effect, all the possible effects, of their stupid, dictatorial rules. It’s their Achilles heel. It’s a blessing to us.

      There’s still the question left unanswered: WHY is it SO IMPORTANT to them to have EVERYONE vaxxed? Why CHILDREN? (Even Sanjay Gupta admits there’s no medical or scientific reason to make children get a vaccine that’s more risky to them than the disease.) So WHY are they planning to force parents to vaccinate their kids?

      I thought of a new possibility today: It’s reported that in Germany (and probably elsewhere), the unvaxxed are DENIED ENTRANCE into GROCERY stores. TCTH speculates that Biden will put out his actual OSHA-written mandate but that phase two will be that the CUSTOMERS of all those businesses will next be required to be vaxxed, too, in order to enter or do business with them. (Required by the companies, of course, but at threat-point from Biden.)

      VACCINE PASSPORTS FOR EVERYONE in order to function at all in society. In order to participate, ALL must give up ALL their freedom. ALL must be totally transparent in all their actions, thoughts, beliefs, associations, speech, writing, etc. TO THE GOVERNMENT–to BIG BROTHER. The vaccine passport will be extended to cover everything you do in society. Obama wanted to follow everything you do financially. It was cut out of Obamacare, but Biden’s requirement in his new bill he wants to ram through Congress means that you or your bank must report EVERY transaction you make at or above $600. The Vaccine Passport, which will actually morph into a citizen passport like they have in Red China, will report EVERYTHING you do to that large computer installation they built in Utah.

      So think about it: IF you’re going to deny entry to participation to all the unvaxxed, using the emergency of the COVID pandemic-that-will-never-end, then you MUST have children vaccinated, too. Children have to be allowed to participate in the world, right?

      Will parents agree that they must vaccinate their kids just so the kids can go into stores? Will they stand for their children being excluded from every public place and business just because they don’t want to have them vaccinated with an experimental vaccine that’s not thoroughly tested until 2024 or beyond and which already is known to pose a greater risk to their lives and health than the disease supposedly being prevented (but not even being prevented)?

    There is a Book that was written 10-15 years ago called “While Europe Slept” by Bruce Bawer. He has actually written several books regarding Muslim extremism & their plans for world & religious dominance. No he is not a right wing conspiracy theorist. He is actually a liberal New Yorker – from NYC who went to Europe to legally marry his boyfriend. In While Europe Slept he chronicles what his life was like there
    And what we Can Expect Here. A lot of what he said back then we have already seen. More & worse to come if we don’t get our heads out ….
