Republicans have thrown in the towel.
They’re capitulating to the outrage mob at every turn.
And what these two Republican U.S. Senators just proposed will make you furious.
Columbus Day is observed on the second Monday in October, commemorating Christopher Columbus’ discovery of the New World.
Now the mob wants to erase Columbus’ achievements from the history books.
Rioters have toppled statues of Columbus nationwide. They see Christopher Columbus as an “evil colonizer” part of the oppressive patriarchy.
Even the city of Columbus, Ohio has taken down a Columbus statue, which only leads us to wonder if they’ll rename the entire town next.
Sadly, in the U.S. Senate, it’s Republicans James Lankford (R-OK) and Ron Johnson (R-WI) leading the charge to banish Columbus.
They’re backing a proposal to replace Columbus Day with Juneteenth.
Juneteenth is a day that celebrates the end of slavery. The abolition of slavery is certainly something worth celebrating.
But in their haste to appease Black Lives Matter activists, Republicans cavalierly took a shot at Americans.
Sen. Johnson stated, “I’m just saying let’s replace it with something. I chose Columbus Day just because it’s probably the most lightly celebrated and less disruptive to anybody’s schedule.”
Senator Johnson wouldn’t be here if Christopher Columbus didn’t set out on his brave voyage.
Columbus wasn’t perfect. There’s only one person in history that was.
But his achievements are worth honoring.
Our country is facing a “Year Zero” moment.
Cultural Marxists are toppling or defacing statues from Thomas Jefferson to George Washington, and even several statues of abolitionists.
They want to erase our history so they can re-write their own.
