War on Columbus Day pits Italians against NYC mayor

John CardilloRebel Host | Off The Cuff

Progressives are at it again with their revisionist sanitization of history, and this time they’re going after Christopher Columbus and the Columbus Day holiday.

The left wants to rename it Indigenous Peoples Day, and have already succeeded in Los Angeles, but Americans are fighting back against this cultural assault. It's part of what I call Civil War 2.0.

In New York City, the showdown between far left Mayor Bill de Blasio and the city’s politically powerful Italian-American community is reaching its boiling point.

Sorry Moose, your position as stated is fallible.
If you didn’t view the vid, I suggest you do.

Glenn Craig had a good point when he asked you if you are a gas lighter.

I know what a straw man is. I also know what hypocrisy is.

Muslims taking over the country is no different than white people taking over. If you do not acknowledge this, then you have lost the argument.

Space Moose, I hope you find this video useful, it will help you see what people are calling you on.

I am not a Marxist. Just merely stating the patterns and your approaches.

For the record, I voted for both HArper and Pallister.

@Space Moose…so are you a native or just a marxist gas lighter?

The natives were absolutely prevented to have their own culture, spirituality, and religion. Oh, and land as well.

It should be really up to the natives what to do with their own land. You don’t have a right to take over land that is not yours. It is like saying the natives have a right to take over England.

Space Moose we do not prevent natives from having their own culture.

The reason the Left always bring up the past, is because it can’t be fixed, so it provides them a never-ending bashing opportunity.

I demand that Lefty’s make up for the past also. I demand they make up for Pearl Harbour, for all the acts of barbarism by the communist, socialist and Islamic regimes! I further demand they stfu until this has been accomplished to my liking!!

The left despises our success and want to bring us down. They want to prove that a capitalist democracy will fail. They are simply using all these various minority groups as battering rams to bash our society.

Space Moose. What would you prefer, that aboriginals still live in tents and igloos?

Aboriginals are migrants too, having crossed the Bearing Straight before it was covered with water. That more humans would follow was inevitable. I want you to tell me who would have been better than the us to discover this additional land on the planet? The Chinese? The Russians? The Ottoman Empire? Who space moose – tell me whom would have been better to follow the aboriginals here than us, and on what basis?

Space Moose, your post is a Straw Man Fallacy.

So why people should be able to keep their culture. BUt other races can not keep their own culture. No double standard here. So lets fear monger about Muslims coming over with their own laws. BUt ignore that white people imposed their own ways onto the aboriginals.

When do we start to be indigenous people. After 320 plus years in Canada, should my ancestors, some poor french farmers and woodcutters, be called indigenous, since they inhabited a wild piece of land How many years does it take? The Vikings landed in Canada well before Columbus, and some of them may have mingled with Indians, who knows. So the Vikings too should be indigenous. And those Indians, they came from Europe/Asia, they were therefore migrants, not indigenous, since they didn’t grow from the plants themselves. Following the left narrative.

The Italians in New York City should never make him an offer , they should just refuse him , next election

This is how a kids’ website explains Columbus Day (US) versus Thanksgiving Day (Canada). http://www.kidzworld.com/article/3886-columbus-day-canadian-thanksgiving

My family background is indigenous. I grew up believing Thanksgiving Day was a peaceful celebration of our ancestors for the harvest, celebrated by the white man and the first inhabitants of our land, together in harmony. I am proud of my family’s history and that part of me is ‘original’.
I’m not naïve about the history of the abuse experienced by our First Nations People. We should, however, emphasis and celebrate what Canada was before the Europeans arrived and the original Canadians. Both should be a natural and automatic consideration when we give thanks (as opposed to the multi cultures that have taken over Canada).
There is nothing more touching and profound as to experience seeing or touching totem poles and long houses, now deteriorating amidst moss and overgrowth of nature, and recognize the history, the people who walked there, ate there, raised their families there. Maybe more kids need to see and experience this. Maybe they need to travel across this land and see where they’re coming from, or if their family does not come from, then see where Canada is coming from.

Maybe we need to get back to this picture when we are giving thanks.

(Space Moose: I hate to burst your bubble, but, 200 years ago, 60 years ago, things were a bit different than they are today.)

I am sooooo tired of the left constant attacks on our society and culture, because they hate themselves, they hate their western culture, they hate their roots and origins, they hate what and who they are, they hate their neighbors, they f…g hate everything. But they use and benefit everyday from what the West has created, that gave them the comfort they enjoy. They are living in the most confortable and wealthy periods of all times and they want to destroy it and its history. They never suffered, they have never known hunger, they never worked hard, they are spoiled narcissists useless people, walking around with their $600. phone, who don’t bring anything to the advancement of society. They should go to one of the many poor countries of the world and do some humanitarian work for a change, instead of complaining about a guy dead for 500 years.

And did the natives ask to be invaded? Did the natives ask for their culture to be replaced by Europoean culture? Did the natives ask for residential schools and reserves.

Now Europe is getting a taste of its own medicine, but it will be at the hands of the Muslims. Any European that complains about this, yet takes no responsibility for the natives, is a hypocrit.
commented 2017-10-09 12:12:05 -0400
@Space Moose….You will never convince me that aboriginals would be better off living in the stone age.

What was the alternative to residential schools?

Nobody in Europe or elsewhere is obliged to permit the invasion of their country through open border immigration policies.

And none of that changes history. North America was visited by Europeans long before Columbus but his expedition was the first official one.

The left is all about cherished and sacred grudges….get over it. The victim trip is bullshit.

Is John really making a comment about the left wing signing petitions every time the wind blows? Perhaps he has not noticed, but the rebel is all about petitions.

John, let me ask you this. How would you like it if the natives all got on boats, and took over Italy? And then they changed all of Italian society, stuck your kids in residential schools, and you are now forced to celebrate some Native explorer on some Monday in October. Would you like that?

Europe is going through what that natives went through. Except Europe is getting it from the Muslims right now.

When people complain about the Muslims taking over, they never stop to look at themselves and what Europeans did to the natives.

So stop complaining about western culture getting erased, and start thinking about how the natives had their culture erased.

NYC mayor will regret his regressive, socialist mission to cancel Columbus Day!
Veteran’s Day will be the next target of the left.

The fact remains that Columbus actually discovered America on this day.!!

Socialists and lefty folks – all causes of extreme violence – especially in this modern day.
commented 2017-10-09 09:31:11 -0400
The fact remains that socialists and communists are the biggest mass murderers in history, you know people like Hitler, Stalin and Mao.

Columbus is also big amongst Hispanics. He may have been Italian, but he sailed for Spain. Puerto Rico has more statues dedicated to Columbus than anywhere else.
