Columbus Day = Italian heritage
Columbus Day has been under attack in the USA by the political correct minions. They blame Christopher Columbus for all the ills that plagued the Western Hemisphere in his aftermath. Perhaps the political correct drones and their minions should read the book, “1491.” 1491 being the year before Christopher Columbus arrived in the New World.
These anti-Columbus Day malcontents in actuality are anti-Americans of Italian heritage. In 21st century America those of Italian ancestry are the only ethnic group where insults, embellishing negative ethnic stereotypes, is permissible by the pervert thespians in Hollywood, late night comics, television sit-coms, etc.
Although it is popular and culturally permissible in the USA to disparage those Americans of Italian ancestry, their contribution to the greatness that is America can not be disputed:
World War Two 12 million Americans in arms to defend the USA. Of which 10% of the 12 million were Americans of Italian ancestry.
600,000 Italian Americans were declared “internal enemies” who had to register at the post office, could not travel beyond five miles from their homes, not allowed to own guns, cameras, or short wave radios. 3,000 were ordered to internment camps. They were not permitted to visit their sons and daughters in the military stationed on military bases.
Thomas Jefferson wrote in the Declaration of Independence the term, “all men are created equal,” which he paraphrased from an neighbor and pamphleteer friend Filippo Mazzei, who wrote, “all men are by nature equally free and independent.”
