Columbus was a peice of filth. He was a terrible person and I do not respect him at all... But I love a good day off from work, so, I'm conflicted.

We could just call it National Explorers Day, celebrate Lief Ericson, that Chinese dude who might have made it to California, the Russians who settled Alaska and, Louis and Clark. Bing Bang Bosh holiday saved.

We need to dig in on this issue. Sure, Columbus was a scumbag. But I don't want to empower the new Red Guard either. They won't stop with confederate generals and Christopher Columbus. They want to erase our history and will be easily able to find "problematic" things in the past of just about anyone born before the 21st century.

I wouldn't agree with tearing down Columbus statues either, but do you really need a national holiday to celebrate that piece of shit? Renaming it would be a good idea, I think.

And so many pick and choose what's racist to them.

If they're REE-ing this hard over Columbus Day, I can't fucking wait until they ramp up with this "war on Christmas" shit we have every year. I already practically have a boner over it.
