Abolish Columbus Day!! The Truth about Columbus

In 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue colonizing a new land all in the name of the Genoa, (northwest) Italy. His voyages across the Atlantic led to European awareness and the establishment of Hispaniola. Sponsored by Isabella I of Castile, they initiated the process of Spanish colonization quickly foreshadowing European colonization of the “New World”. Columbus is created for initiating widespread contact between Europeans and indigenous Americans. Columbus has been discredited to be the founder of America, a land already occupied; without the Europeans the Indians were doing just fine.

Why do we continue to celebrate a holiday for a man and his european affiliates that caused a mass genocide to “pre-Columbian” inhabitants? To the American government, how dare you praises this man one who came through stole land; raped the women and children, infected them with disease, destroyed Gods Earth, robbed them of their riches, precious gems, silver and gold. “By any means necessary what ever the cost even if that means lives are lost” The Mission and the reason why: emerge modern western imperialism and economic competition between developing kingdoms seeking wealth from the establishment of trade routes and colonies. History repeats is self as Columbus sets the way for the same Europeans to sponsored the African slave trade.The Atlantic�slave trade, also known as the transatlantic slave trade, Diaspora, was the enslavement and transportation, primarily of African people, to the colonies of the New World that occurred in and around the Atlantic Ocean. It lasted from the 16th to the 19th centuries.

There are those out there ignorant enough to say, “l’m just enjoying the day off” “It doesn’t affect me”. Think about it this way..  Women were raped, Tribes were killed so they could emerge wealth and destruction while you can sit on your ass and enjoy your day off.. If you think this does not affect you in some how some way it does or will because the “Machine” utilize the same techniques to keep you and your mind enslaved.. The New World Mission ….You and your ignorance keep the neurons of the machine firing because you choose not to seek the truth and the light for that matter.. Fools Despise Wisdom and Discipline !

Roy Cook writes in his essay, Columbus Day: American Holocaust and Slave Trader

After Turning Out the Jews

Beyond profits, Columbus sought to convert native people to Catholicism. In the prologue to his journal of the first voyage, Columbus wrote to Ferdinand and Isabella:

“YOUR HIGHNESSES, as Catholic Christians and Princes who love the holy Christian faith, and the propagation of it, and who are enemies to the sect of Mahoma [Islam] and to all idolatries and heresies, resolved to send me, Cristbal Colon, to the said parts of India to see the said princes … with a view that they might be converted to our holy faith Thus, after having turned out all the Jews from all your kingdoms and lordships … your Highnesses gave orders to me that with a sufficient fleet I should go to the said parts of India …. I shall forget sleep, and shall work at the business of navigation, so that the service is performed.” [3]

The Enslavement of Native People

On October 12, 1492 (the first day he encountered the native people of the Americas), Columbus wrote in his journal:“They should be good servants …. I, our Lord being pleased, will take hence, at the time of my departure, six natives for your Highnesses.”These captives were later paraded through the streets of Barcelona and Seville when Columbus returned to Spain. [4]

From his very first contact with native people, Columbus had their domination in mind. For example, on October 14, 1492, Columbus wrote in his journal, “with fifty men they can all be subjugated and made to do what is required of them.” [5] These were not mere words: after his second voyage, Columbus sent back a consignment of natives to be sold as slaves. [6]

Yet in an April, 1493, letter to Luis de Santangel (a patron who helped fund the first voyage), Columbus made clear that the people he encountered had done nothing to deserve ill treatment. According to Columbus:

“they are artless and generous with what they have, to such a degree as no one would believe but him who had seen it. Of anything they have, if it be asked for, they never say no, but do rather invite the person to accept it, and show as much lovingness as though they would give their hearts.” [7]

Nonetheless, later in the letter Columbus went on to say:

“their Highnesses may see that I shall give them as much gold as they need …. and slaves as many as they shall order to be shipped.” [8]

Pope Gives the Americas to Spain

Following Columbus’ discovery, Pope Alexander VI issued a May 4, 1493, papal bull granting official ownership of the New World to Ferdinand and Isabella. To these monarchs, the Pope declared.

Columbus Day: A National Holiday

Since 1971 Columbus Day has been celebrated in the U.S. as federal holiday, and on October 9, 2002, President George W. Bush issued a presidential proclamation celebrating “Columbus’ bold expedition [and] pioneering achievements,” directing that “the flag of the United States be displayed on all public buildings on the appointed day in honor of Christopher Columbus.” [13]

Missing from this proclamation was any mention of violence, slavery, religious persecution, or the pursuit of gold. Yet Columbus himself was more forthcoming about how he should be remembered. In a letter penned a few years before his death, Columbus wrote: “I ought to be judged as a captain who for such a long time up to this day has borne arms without laying them aside for an hour.” [14]

My Question is: Why America, Why are will still supporting this man and this so-called holiday? Capitalist Dreams and New World Schemes. Wake up people they are gunning for you! My thought is to push for the abolishment of this satanic holiday and replace it with someone who actually spent their life trying to make a different in this world. Here are a few suggestions:

Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

Nelson Mandela

Maya Angelou

George Washington Carver

Just to name a few…
