Today is Columbus Day. So Christopher Columbus has become the social justice warrior target du jour(1). Another day, another SJW outage. The latest outrage, and latest brain flatulence, from the New York Post :
NEW YORK â€” Is it time to say arrivederci to Christopher Columbus?
A movement to abolish Columbus Day and replace it with Indigenous Peoples Day has gained momentum in some parts of the U.S., with Los Angeles in August becoming the biggest city yet to decide to stop honoring the Italian explorer and instead recognize victims of colonialism.
Ok, Columbus Day has devolved into yet another government paid holiday for our overpaid federal employees, and scaled down version of Saint Patrick’s Day for our Italians.
However, if comes down to either Italian-American Day or Indigenous Peoples Day, I vote for the Wops. The Italians gave us one of our national food, to wit pizza. Our indigenous peoples gave us what tobacco and gaming casinos(2). We all have to eat. Nobody needs to smoke or gamble.
Moreover, just like a infant with soiled nappies, there is no making a social justice warrior happy. It is was no time to bother.
For observations about Columbus, the man not the holiday, see a previous post . Unlike two years ago, today is wet.
1. Look mom, I am typing French.
2. If our indigenous people want Indigenous Peoples’ Day, I say the price should be closing down all the cigarette shops and all the gaming casinos.
