So let me get this right! The Pilgrims came over here, befriended the black Hebrew indians then, they sent for Christopher Columbus to come over here, stole the land, raped, robbed, and murdered them. Infected them with small pox, brought their Hebrew brothers over here, enslaved them, had them picking cotton, raped the men, women and children, murdered them, renamed the Black indians as Native Americans mixed with their bloodline, renamed their Hebrew brothers Hebos, Negroes and African Americans. They raped, murdered and robbed millions of Hebrews, made it a National Holiday and called it Happy Thanksgiving and got everybody celebrating it. Are you Serious? Scripture said the Devil would deceive the whole world!
Isn’t the magna carta the ship Christopher Columbus came to America on?
Michael Jackson and Christopher Columbus suck I hate them

Christopher Columbus. as everyone knows. is honored by posterity because he was the last to discover America. James Joyce
Trinidad and Tobago /ˌtrɪnɨdæd ən tɵˈbeɪɡoʊ/, officially the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, is a twin island country off the northern edge of South America, lying just off the coast of northeastern Venezuela and south of Grenada in the Lesser Antilles. Usually considered part of the Caribbean, it shares maritime boundaries with other nations including Barbados to the northeast, Grenada to the northwest, Guyana to the southeast, and Venezuela to the south and west. The country covers an area of 5,128 square kilometres (1,980 sq mi) and consists of two main islands, Trinidad and Tobago, with numerous smaller landforms. The two main islands are divided into nine regions, and one ward. Sangre Grande is the largest of the country's nine regions, comprising about 18% of the total area and 10% of the total population of the country. The nation lies outside of the hurricane belt. The island of Trinidad was a Spanish colony from the arrival of Christopher Columbus in 1498 to the capitulation of the S . ...
I never use the line "proud to be Russian" or "proud to be Korean". You know why? Because pride is based on accomplishment, not a genetic coincidence. You have to be born some kind of color, so it's more important to just do the best you can with what you have and not see what you happen to be as your measurement of value. Not to mention, it sets you apart from your brothers. It's like "well, if I am born of this ethnicity, then I am luckier than you because you aren't". People don't even realize that's a mild version of what Hitler believed too. And, since Hitler is always force fed down our throats as the poster boy of everything evil, why are we celebrating his attitude with our own sentiment? An accomplishment is something an individual DOES, and is not something a group happens to BE. One person told me "I'm proud to be Italian". I asked "why?" They said "cause Christopher Columbus was Italian and he discovered American". I said "first off, contrary to what you were told, he was actually Jewish, not ...
Today, 521 years ago (1493) - Christopher Columbus discovered Puerto Rico on his 2nd voyage to the Americas.
“Nov 19, 1493: Christopher Columbus discovered Puerto Rico during his 2nd voyage to the New World.” Look at you, who told you?
Food for thought... To us today, November 19th, might just be another cold day but in the past this date has held some interesting significance.

COMMENTARY: I HAVE A DREAM- That we would get off the oil-plastic fix and make America sustainable. Oil and Plastic is not sustainable. By really using our technology for the planet and not against it we could show the world how to do it. My dream is that instead of war - we would spend all our time and money becoming sustainable...that all the war would end. That what's left of the rain forests would be saved as it is the life-blood of the planet. That we would STOP killing the Oceans...the whales...the dolphins...the seals...and wildlife in general. I believe we are here to help them...not destroy. That every building and house in the World would have a solar panel on it. The energy solution has always been sun-wind-geo thermal! That every American would be allowed to vote no matter where they are - including all the ex-felons alike. That what we are allowed to vote on includes police actions/wars in such places as Iraq and Afghanistan. That the Constitution be re-written so there are no more false-fron ...

Did you know... Extinct Animals conclusion. 21. Following the extinction of the Tasmanian tiger in 1936, Tasmanian Devils are the largest carnivorous marsupial now on earth 22. There were two species of frogs called Gastric-brooding frogs that swallowed its eggs, converted its stomach into a womb, and gave birth through its mouth. It went extinct in the mid-1980s. Scientists are trying to resurrect it.- Source 23. The passenger pigeon went from one of the most abundant animals in the world, with flocks that would blacken the sky, to extinct in a little more than a century. – Source 24. When Columbus discovered America, earthworms were all but extinct in North America. Extinct in large parts of North America since the Ice Age, earthworms began spreading there once again following Christopher Columbus’ voyage. They are now considered invasive species in North America.- Source 25. “The first animal to evolve vision was the trilobite, a distant extinct relative of spiders and shrimps.”- Source (-_-)

Tonight I heard a great lecture at the World Culture Club of Central PA on "A Brief History of Puerto Rico and its Contributions to the United States" by Hon. Pedro Cortes, former PA Secretary of the Commonwealth (and first Latino cabinet member in PA history, and a good friend of mine) who was born in Puerto Rico (and is one of 4.5 million Puerto Ricans living on the US mainland. There are 3.5 million on the island. They are all US citizens.) Interesting facts: The ISLAND was named San Juan Baptiste ("St. John the Baptist" in English) by Christopher Columbus in 1493 and its deep water PORT was named Puerto Rico ("Rich Port" in English), but the island and the port traded names in 1521. The first Governor of the island was Ponce de Leon. It was under Spanish rule for 400 years until 1898 when ceded to the US (along with the Philippines and Cuba) in ending the Spanish-American War. Puerto Rico is a US Commonwealth, as are Virginia, Tennessee, Massachusetts and Pennsylvania. And I still want to know ...

It is assumed that indigenous Indians (Native Americans) on the territory of today's North America and the United States migrated from Asia before 40,000 years ago. Some of the regional indigenous cultures before the arrival of Europeans were very well developed in the area of society, agriculture and architecture. It is assumed that before the official discovery of America in 1492 by Christopher Columbus today the US were about 1.5 million Indians. Most of them are extinct after the arrival of Europeans due to frequent wars with the colonizers and because of numerous outbreaks. Europeans are already up to the mid-18th century, founded the 13 colonies on the eastern coast of present-day United States, and the population of the colonies began to greatly increase amid increasingly frequent waves of immigration from Europe. Over time, colonies American Revolutionary War, George Washington motif become more independent from the British crown, and 1775 began the American Revolutionary War. The fledgling US Con ...

All About JAMAICA (Wiki Info) Jamaica, the third largest Caribbean island, was inhabited by Arawak natives when it was first sighted by the second voyage of Christopher Columbus on 5 May 1494. Columbus himself was stranded on Jamaica from 1503 to 1504 during his fourth voyage. The Spanish settled in Jamaica in 1509 and held the island against many privateer raids from their main city, now called Spanish Town, which served as capital of Jamaica from its founding in 1534 until 1872. In 1655 Jamaica was conquered by the English, although the Spanish did not relinquish their claim to the island until 1670. Jamaica became a base of operations for privateers, including Captain Henry Morgan, operating from the main English settlement Port Royal. In return these privateers kept the other colonial powers from attacking the island. Following the destruction of Port Royal in the great earthquake of 1692, refugees settled across the bay in Kingston. By 1716 it had become the biggest town in Jamaica and was designated ...
So, Christopher Columbus (an American according to Rick Perry) is the archetype for the American for Americans.
seeing a lot of "great" Christopher Columbus that have been posted that are idiotic. Yea he was a genocidal *** but let's take a look at some other great "American" heroes shall we.. George Washington had slaves and killed many many Native Americans during his time in the British army. Remember the French Indian war? Yet we still celebrate him like he's the second coming!? Or how about Andrew Jackson!? The guy IMMORTALIZED on the 20 dollar bill! Remember what he did to the Seminoles? My point is don't worship these people. But remember them for their contribution to history. Learn from them! Don't just get rid of them... otherwise you revise history and the mistakes of the past are bound to repeat themselves.

I love listening to people's ignorant misconceptions of Christopher Columbus. I hate listening to people's unpatriotic comments about our country. I'm tired of hearing people who line up for hours to buy Jordan's trying to tell me their sad version of American history. In this country, no one owes you a thing. You owe your ancestors the honor of making the most of the life they provided for you by laying a foundation. Remembering that they sacrificed to provide us the opportunity to be anything that we want to be. As long as we are willing to work for it. People who look for racism in everything usually find it. And they ensure it's survival with the same breath. Personally I can't think of anything good about celebrating Columbus Day. *** at least on National Coffee Day I got a free cup of dark roast. On behalf of all extremely pale Irishmen; we gave you St.Patrick's Day. And for that you are welcome.
Today is the day we all stop and take time to remember the explorer Christopher Columbus! The man who "discovered"a place already inhabited by millions of people!the good Christopher Columbus immediately set about relieving the taino Indians of their vast wealth painstakingly earned through a sophisticated trade route spanning the carribean from the Bahamas in the north, all the way to Venezuela in the south and west to Cuba. These "noble savages" couldn't possibly know what they had ,so they were rescued from oblivian just in time by the great Columbus! When the Spanish arrived they found a thriving democratically elected society who welcomed them with open arms offering gifts ranging from unknown items such as pineapples and cigars to the more familiar gold trinkets that made Europeans mouths water.. .immediately plans were made to rob these people of everything,from their posessions,land and freedom to their very lives,setting the stage for how the indigenous people should be treated for the next 500 y ...

Arbitrary Fact of the Day (Columbus Day Edition): Leif Erickson landed in what is now North America (specifically Newfoundland, Canada) 500 years prior to Christopher Columbus navigating to "The West Indies." Erickson was not the first European to glimpse North America, however. The Viking merchant Bjarni Herjólfsson reported spotting land west of Greenland after being blown off course on a voyage in 986. Erickson encountered people in Newfoundland, which he named skraelings. Today, they are known as the Thule people, ancestors of the modern Inuit.

In closing, Cristobal Colon was not a hero nor did he discover a new land. The land was already discovered and occupied by people with culture and civilization. The man, recognized by the holiday known as Christopher Columbus, killed, raped and destroyed the original occupants in the name of religion. I guess they didn't wear WWJD bracelets in 1492. Happy Columbus Day!!! ;(-
Yeah Christopher Columbus may not have been the best guy, but we can keep it a holiday, because in the Acalanes Union High School District, we get to miss school. Thanks Chris.

There seems to be this idea that Christopher Columbus is an *** for conquering this land and "taking what wasn't his" and all that. The conclusion people draw from this is that this is a day not to be celebrated. Just remember, if he hadn't done the things he did, we would not be here today, and for better or for worse, I like being here. So, he may have been a jerk, but when you go through history he's not even in the top 10 worst people to live. So, thanks Chris Columbus, I appreciate all the pillaging, you hooked us up quite nicely!
"While I was in the boat, I captured a very beautiful Carib woman, whom the said Lord Admiral gave to me. When I had taken her to my cabin she was naked—as was their custom. I was filled with a desire to take my pleasure with her and attempted to satisfy my desire. She was unwilling, and so treated me with her nails that I wished I had never begun. But—to cut a long story short—I then took a piece of rope and whipped her soundly, and she let forth such incredible screams that you would not have believed your ears. Eventually we came to such terms, I assure you, that you would have thought that she had been brought up in a school for *** " -The Four Voyages of Christopher Columbus - p. 139.

Christopher Columbus was one of the worst people to ever live, yet Americans still celebrate his life with a holiday. What the *** is wrong with America?
With today being Columbus Day and all, it got me to thinking. How many holidays do we know the TRUE meaning behind or history of. What did Christopher Columbus do to get a day anyway??? All that fool did was sail the seas high and drunk, wreck his ship on land that was occupied by indigenous people, spread diseases to them, take their land and kill them off. But instead of being vilified for it, he gets a holiday because that's when the history books decided that that was the moment America was "discovered". I don't know what's worse, the fact that America has lied to us about this since we were kids, or the fact that we've been ignorant enough to believe them all this time.
Ah, yes, Columbus Day, the day where we ignore that Christopher Columbus actually landed in the Carribean, and the day where we pretend that he didn't rape and murder hundreds of natives
I want to thank Christopher Columbus for alleviating traffic today.
There are 365.25 days a year; Aren't there 365.25 American Historical Figures more worthy of honoring then Christopher Columbus?
Just read that Seattle exchanged "Columbus Day" for "Indigenous People's Day." This makes so much sense to me. It is simply a switching of lenses from those who arrived on the boats thinking they had discovered something new, to the people who already lived here in this land who had to deal with new, unexpected, possibly unwanted visitors. Christopher Columbus should be celebrated for sailing beyond the edge of his fears, but that is about all. When it comes to a federal holiday about what is important on this continent, we have a whole lot more to consider.
O.K... here it is. Today is the day we remember Christopher Columbus. This only goes to show that if you screw up 'REALLY BIG', you too can get a day named after you. Come on...He thought he was in India!!! Lost with no direction...hey wait...that sounds like our Government. History repeats this itself.
Reality check of the day: Christopher Columbus was a murderer. Happy Columbus Day (can we please stop celebrating this...)
The public school system taught my daughter, today, that Christopher Columbus discovered America. Don't worry, I supplemented that education.
Mini rant... Christopher Columbus did not discover America. There were already people here. For Christ's sake
Nearly 500 years before the birth of Christopher Columbus, a band of European sailors left their homeland behind in search of a New World. Their high-prowed Viking ship sliced through the cobalt waters of the Atlantic Ocean as winds billowed the boat’s enormous single sail. After traversing unfamiliar waters, the Norsemen aboard the wooden ship spied a new land, dropped anchor and went ashore. Half a millennium before Columbus “discovered” America, those Viking feet may have been the first European ones to ever have touched North American soil. Exploration was a family business for the expedition’s leader, Leif Eriksson (variations of his last name include Erickson, Ericson, Erikson, Ericsson and Eiriksson). His father, Erik the Red, founded the first European settlement of Greenland after being expelled from Iceland around A.D. 985 for killing a neighbor. (Erik the Red’s father, himself, had been banished from Norway for committing manslaughter.) Eriksson, who is believed to have been born in I ...
Well, putting away all the Christopher Columbus decorations. Taking down the Santa Maria replica in the front yard. What a day! Kids are opening gifts now. Jeff bought us all Amerigo Vespucci portraits we can all hang in our living rooms. He bought them on QVC. Hope your day was blessed and full of celebration. Tommy
As this day comes to a close, I'm sure many people enjoyed the day off. However, just to be clear, my lack of conformity is not a new thing. As a child I remember being reprimanded by my teacher for asking why we keep saying Christopher Columbus discovered America when there were people here already?
Thanks everybody for the birthday wishes today. Thanks to Christopher Columbus for giving me the day off with pay today. May you sail the ocean blue.
before i go to bed id just like to say thank you to christopher columbus for being the money grubbing glory hound that hes was you can bash the holiday all you want but that hand job is the reason you're hear now so you go ahead and pretend like its so terrible but im gonna enjoy it cuz MURICA' !
Alexis: Mom why did we have off school today? Me: For Columbus Day, a guy named Christopher Columbus sailed all around the ocean and discovered America a long time ago. Alexis: So he had to pee his pants every day until he found it? Yep. I have no words.
1492 Slavery of the indigenous people by Edomite Christopher Columbus and the Spaniards, who kidnapped and enslaved the indigenous people into submission, then sailed them to Europe, as well as showed the 6th Pope of Rome Edomite Rodrigo Borgias the forced fed wicked religion Catholicism he had to learn by these Devils.

Can someone refresh my memory as to why everyone hates Christopher Columbus? I see random things on social media posted but I don't quite understand what the big deal is. Please help.
I will do what Christopher Columbus did. I will go in the store and discover everything i see!
Nearly 500 years before Christopher Columbus “sailed the ocean blue,” Leif Eriksson arrived on the shores of an area he called Vinland — the land we know today as North America. This fascinating short film recounts Eriksson's journey, and unearths evidence that the brave, bold and adventurous Viking was the first European to set foot in North America.
Was Christopher Columbus an illegal immigrant? Any history buffs out there to help me with this?
My students today asked me why Columbus Day was today (10/13). I had no idea why, so I told them the first thing I thought of. That it took Christopher Columbus 1,013 days to find America. I doubt that's the reason---but it made sense to me.
Christopher Columbus discovering America is like me discovering someone's backyard! GTHOH!
Yall *** worried about Christopher Columbus discovering America , but cant discover : 1: your walls 2: your edges Or 3: your baby father
Growing up I was taught about how much of a hero Christopher Columbus was and how he discovered America. As I got older I learned the truth about his slave trading, abuse of Native Americans and over all maniac ways. The thing is, its not like what I learned was new information. It's just that Public schools are too big of *** to teach kids the truth about these so called heroes.
Shocked to find out about Christopher Columbus... What's next? Did St. Valentine not invent chocolate?!?!?!
All ya hating Christopher Columbus. Today but when ya were younger and in school ya looked towards this day !!

Yearly reminder that Christopher Columbus was a ***
I was explaining to our children today why they didn't have to go to school. The reason being because it's Columbus Day. We are celebrating Christopher Columbus bringing Spanish explorers to America 1000s of years after its existing Natives discovered it. Columbus' s discovery brought with it 1000's of Europeans looking to exploit the resources and riches of the new land. The European military strength exceeded that of the natives and as a result our ancestors ended up in America. And that's why we have the United States Navy, since it was established 239 years ago not one adversary greedy for the resources has ever come to American shores and succeeded. As long as we have the will, they never will. The Native Americans taught us a valuable lesson, never allow your military strength to trail that of the rest of the world. That's why we have Blue Angel fighter jets flying through our sky's flexing their muscles and showing the rest of the world they are better off as our friends than our foes.

Shouts out to Christopher Columbus for discovering The Bahamas cuz where would rich people vacation if he hadn't?
On Monday, America’s government offices, businesses, and banks all grind to a halt in order to commemorate Columbus Day. In schools up and down the country, little children are taught that a heroic Italian explorer discovered America, and various events and parades are held to celebrate the occasion. BYA RADIO FREE BUGANDA KU LWOKUSOOKA NGA, 13 OCTOBER 2014 KU SSAAWA 15:17 It has now become common knowledge amongst academics that Christopher Columbus clearly did not discover America, not least because is it impossible to discover a people and a continent that was already there and thriving with culture. One can only wonder how Columbus could have discovered America when people were watching him from America’s shores? Contrary to popular belief, African American history did not start with slavery in the New World. An overwhelming body of new evidence is emerging which proves that Africans had frequently sailed across the Atlantic to the Americas, thousands of years before Columbus and indeed before Ch ...

LET'S . NOT ! . CELEBRATE Columbus Day Columbus Day? True Legacy: Cruelty and Slavery CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS Once again, it's time to celebrate Columbus Day. Yet, the stunning truth is: If Christopher Columbus were alive today, he would be put on trial for crimes against humanity. Columbus' reign of terror, as documented by noted historians, was so bloody, his legacy so unspeakably cruel, that Columbus makes a modern villain like Saddam Hussein look like a pale codfish. Question: Why do we honor a man who, if he were alive today, would almost certainly be sitting on Death Row awaiting execution? If you'd like to know the true story about Christopher Columbus, please read on. But I warn you, it's not for the faint of heart. Here's the basics. On the second Monday in October each year, we celebrate Columbus Day (this year, it's on October 11th). We teach our school kids a cute little song that goes: "In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue." It's an American tradition, as American as pizza pie. Or is it? Surp ...

having Martin Luther King Jr honored in the dame way as Christopher Columbus is paradoxical too
Columbus Day is an odd holiday. Even moreso since *everyone* knows *why* it's an odd holiday. And in a time where the Washington Redskins are being pressured to change their name, we have a national holiday for Christopher Columbus. But having no team owner for Columbus Day, I doubt there'd even be much pushback nationally if there were a call to change the nature of it to celebrate anything/anyone else. How do we have a Martin Luther King Jr. Day and a Columbus Day on the same calendar?
Today in History -- Sunday, Oct. 12 *** Gregory, Sam Moore, Pat DiNizio, Hugh Jackman, Martie Maguire) The Associated Press Today is Sunday, Oct. 12, the 285th day of 2014. There are 80 days left in the year. Today's Highlight in History: On Oct. 12, 1964, the Soviet Union launched a Voskhod space capsule with a three-man crew on the first mission involving more than one crew member (the flight lasted just over 24 hours). On this date: In 1492 (according to the Old Style calendar), Christopher Columbus arrived with his expedition in the present-day Bahamas. In 1864, Roger B. Taney (TAH'-nee), the fifth Chief Justice of the United States, died at 87; he was succeeded by Salmon Chase. In 1870, General Robert E. Lee died in Lexington, Virginia, at age 63. In 1915, English nurse Edith Cavell was executed by the Germans in occupied Belgium during World War I.

On this date in history: In 1492, Christopher Columbus reached America, making his first landing in the New World on one of the Bahamas Islands. Columbus thought he had reached India. In 1915, British nurse Edith Cavell, 49, was executed by a German firing squad in Brussels for helping Allied soldiers escape from Belgium in World War I. In 1960, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev removed one of his shoes and pounded it on his desk during a speech before the United Nations. In 1964, the Soviet Union launched Voskhod 1 into orbit around Earth, with three cosmonauts aboard. It was the first spacecraft to carry a multi-person crew and the two-day mission was also the first orbital flight performed without spacesuits. In 1973, U.S. President Richard Nixon nominated House Minority Leader Gerald Ford of Michigan for the vice presidency to replace Spiro Agnew, who had resigned two days earlier. In 1984, British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher escaped injury in the bombing of a hotel in Brighton, England. Four peop ...

UNESCO on Monday scuttled claims that a wreck found off Haiti was Christopher Columbus's flagship
The False Christopher Columbus from 1485 Until Today Christopher Columbus has remained more of a mystery than Cristobal Colon ever intended. There have been false stories passed on and modified histories of Cristobal Colon passing as Christopher Columbus.This has not helped to clarify but to hide the person that Cristobal Colon was prior to 1485. As a result, we have named him "Christopher Columbus" yet he was never called such a name in his country of birth or in his adopted country.Historians have not even spared his family of this false name. The blame for this confusion of modern historians is partially due to the translator of Hernando Colon's Historia del Almirante. Having been translated into Italian in Italy from its original Spanish, the translator, intentionally or by mistake, called him Fernando Colombo, son of Cristoforo Colombo. They called Cristoval Colon by the wrong name of Cristoforo Colombo or Christopher Columbus and now, they renamed Hernando Colon as Fernando Colombo. Christopher Col ...

1492 exposed the Christopher Columbus Controversy! The real history no one teaches
I disagree with this decision for the following reason. It's Columbus Day because the man had the balls to go against everything that was known about trade routes at the time and travel west instead of east. He opened the door to a whole new age of exploring. He was NOT responsible for the generations of genocide and atrocities that followed. Re-naming the holiday sends the message that everything to happen in the America's after he landed was his fault. I have no problem with recognizing that the indigenous people suffered greatly. That does not change the fact that Christopher Columbus deserves to be recognized for his contribution to the history of the world. To me this would be the same as renaming Thanksgiving to Slaughterday. You are taking the focus away from an amazing explorer and how he changed the way EVERYONE looked at the world and making the focus everything bad that happened after he was dead and gone.
Syphilis, a sexual transmitted disease that killed King Henry VIII, Al Capone, and Christopher Columbus, is believed to have been started in Biblical times by having sex with sheep!!
