    Happy Columbus Day

    Happy Columbus Day

    This was the beginning of the pacification and civilization of the Americas. A great moment in history.

    The lunatics here in DC are self-haters and have declared this day to be Indigenous Peoples Day.

    That is like giving Olympic athletes the Gold medal for coming in second place.

    Gli scandinavi affermarono che l'America fu scoperta per prima dai Vichinghi. Tuttavia quando fu scoperto da Colombo rimase scoperto.
    Political tags - such as royalist, communist, democrat, populist, fascist, liberal, conservative, and so forth - are never basic criteria. The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire.

    We have agreed on this forum, probably one or more years ago on this date, that Columbus did not "discover" America. The historic significance of Columbus is that he opened the Americas to European exploitation. None of the earlier "discoverers" did they. Their acts were insignificant. Columbus directly led to the creation of the power powerful nation to exit on earth: the United States of America.

    Translation

    The Scandinavian people claim America was discovered by Vikings and not Columbus. The difference is that when Columbus discovered it it stayed discovered.

    True.

    The Viking presence in North America is very intriguing.

    There is evidence of settlements in North America long before Columbus sailed to the West Indies.

    I'd like to see the evidence of that if you mean someone not Asian.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.
