86ing columbus

Biden talked today about, among other things, the confederate monuments, and monuments in general, at one point, he was defending the statues of Washington and columbus. I’ve read Washington’s letters, he had redeeming qualities, among them wasn’t his goal to take the boots to the Indians in the West, to pursue America’s manifest destiny, continental domination, from sea to shining sea.

Columbus, I’ve read his diaries, the locals were treated as slaves, he was a ruthless running dog of Catholic brutality. So I’m in favor of moving columbus to Italian restaurants. I’m 34% Greek/ Italian, columbus wasn’t a Paisan, he was from Genoa, so I have some cred with dumping columbus.

Give the holiday back to the Indians.
