The celebration of the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the Americas


The biggest celebration of American-Italian culture in the world, the Columbus Day parade attracts around a million spectators and 35,000 marchers each year. For over 73 years, Fifth Avenue is filled with Italian flags and people dressed as Christopher Columbus. Marching school bands, professional musicians, and traditional folk groups perform on their way from Midtown to Upper East Side, creating a lively atmosphere.

Banks are closed today for Columbus, not indigenous people.

Yup.
Good time for white people to pay reparations at the Indian Reparations collection sites located on many reservations where many whites folks donate with a smile.

Another holiday that self-loathing leftists can use to complain about how horrible Western culture was and how America was founded by “imperialism” and blood.

Colombus was a true hero and the reason what we are today. Leftists can go pound sand.

Indigenous people didn’t discover America for Western civilization. Our nation is here and is the finest republic in the world because of the Europeans that discovered it and settled it.

This is a day to celebrate our European heritage and give thanks to Western civilization that changed the world from the barbaric dark ages to the modern world it is today. If “indigenous people” had their way, we’d still be living in those dark ages.

It certainly wasn't an act of God....Since Columbus discovered a place where people already lived that had discovered it first.

Joe, Italian people are disrespected by stereotypes in commercials, TV dramas and comedies and movies. There are a lot of Italians who do not like the representation of their own the way they are portrayed. But the entertainers do not listen. It is okay to promote hate against Italians. Columbus Day is an Italian Holiday. The bullshit you spread about him is just more Prog agenda tripe. The worst part is Italian actors get involved in this crime against their own and some are sacrosanct Progs who demean any thing that even has a wisp of hate as promoted by the Progs except the mafia and other stereotypes of the Italian people. Not a word from the Prog socialist communist talking heads on the atrocities committed. Italians have no issues with Native Americans. The Western Hemisphere is what it is now. At least a billion people and more. It is going to be difficult to ship them out to make you happy.

Yes, what a living. No government or laws. Just lynch mob chaos and nonstop tribal warfare. I’m sure the women loved being traded like livestock and being raped by men all the time.

Can't be any worse than being a wage slave.

I never claimed it was “an act of God”.

He discovered it for Western civilization. No one is claiming he was the first human to set foot in the Western Hemisphere. The Vikings discovered it long before him, but it never resulted in anything significant as the knowledge was lost.
