Today, October 12, 2020, we acknowledge the annual celebration of Columbus day.
In this day and politically correct age, Christopher Columbus has been morphed by the left from the brave and intrepid explorer who was the very catalyst that ushered in Western Civilization to the New World into a genocidal villain that ruined an unspoiled paradise and destroyed the native peoples there. The truth tends to support the former rather than the latter in most respects. Prager University has done a great job, as usual, in summarizing Columbus in one of its five minute videos. Columbus was an invaluable man in the formation of the Western hemisphere and the very societies we have here today. I encourage you, dear reader, to watch this brief video accordingly.
"There’s a reason why Columbus has so long been celebrated—why so many statues, schools, towns, cities, a national holiday, an Ivy League university, and even a country bear his name.
It’s this simple fact:
When we celebrate Columbus, we celebrate the arrival of Western Civilization to the Western Hemisphere. And if you can’t celebrate that, it says much more about your moral compass than about history’s greatest explorer."
