Los Angeles Changes 'Columbus Day' To 'Indigenous Peoples Day'

Trump was obliterated by the mainstream media a few weeks back when he spoke out against decisions to dismantle confederate statues all around the country. While he was branded a racist for his comments, his point was that the logical conclusion of the Left's crusade was the complete destruction of over 500 years worth of history since the Europeans first arrived in the 'New World'.

As it turns, it looks increasingly like Trump was absolutely right. As just the latest example of the wave of insanity sweeping the nation, the Los Angeles Times points out today that the city of Los Angeles has officially decided to scrap Columbus Day and instead replace it with "Indigenous People Day"... you know, because it's just about time that everyone stop celebrating the "state-sponsored celebration of genocide of indigenous peoples."

The Los Angeles City Council voted Wednesday to eliminate Columbus Day from the city calendar, siding with activists who view the explorer as a symbol of genocide for native peoples in North America and elsewhere.

Over the objections of Italian American civic groups, the council made the second Monday in October a day in L.A. to commemorate “indigenous, aboriginal and native people.” It replaces a holiday that served as a touchstone for Italian Americans, marking the arrival of Christopher Columbus in the Caribbean.

Italian Americans voiced anguish over the proposal, telling council members it would erase a portion of their heritage. Some said they supported the creation of Indigenous Peoples Day as long as it is held on a different date.

Okay, let's take off the gloves and call the day what it really is...National moon bat day. How in the world did these idiots in California get so deranged? Can it be attributed to tremendous drug abuse? Is there something in the water?

The Norsemen actually arrived in North America 1,000 years before Columbus did. But the Native Americans were the first about 14,000 years earlier so a day to celebrate the Native Americans isn't asking too much by any stretch of the imagination.
They are a proud people and I admire them for their history. They don't whine or march about every little problem because they can face life as it comes to them every day.
