Trump Unapologetically Celebrates Columbus Day In Best Way – Triggered Liberals Lose It!

Published

on

Monday is a day for celebration because it is Columbus Day. But in recent years the day has been politicized because of the actions of the man itself. While the former White House administration refused to use Colombus’s name, the current White House administration is honoring the adventurer and explorer for his accomplishments.

The Daily Caller reported,

“President Donald Trump wished Americans a happy Columbus Day in marked contrast to his predecessor with a Monday morning tweet. Trump’s proclamation hails Columbus’ discovery of the Americas in 1492 and makes no mention of any impact on indigenous Native Americans, saying:

Columbus’s daring journey marked the beginning of centuries of transatlantic exploration that transformed the Western Hemisphere. On Columbus Day, we commemorate the achievements of this skilled Italian explorer and recognize his courage, will power, and ambition — all values we cherish as Americans.

The administration’s declaration is starkly different from the 2016 Columbus Day proclamation issued by former President Barack Obama. Obama’s statement celebrated Columbus Day but included a prominent paragraph, which notes:

As we mark this rich history, we must also acknowledge the pain and suffering reflected in the stories of Native Americans who had long resided on this land prior to the arrival of European newcomers. The past we share is marked by too many broken promises, as well as violence, deprivation, and disease. It is a history that we must recognize as we seek to build a brighter future — side by side and with cooperation and mutual respect.”

The Hill reported,

“President Trump on Monday commemorated Columbus Day, praising the 15th century explorer for his determination and leaving out any mention of Native Americans in a formal proclamation for a second straight year.

“Columbus’s spirit of determination and adventure has provided inspiration to generations of Americans. On Columbus Day, we honor his remarkable accomplishments as a navigator, and celebrate his voyage into the unknown expanse of the Atlantic Ocean,” Trump said in the proclamation.

“His expedition formed the initial bond between Europe and the Americas, and changed the world forever,” he continued. “Today, in that spirit, we continue to seek new horizons for greater opportunity and further discovery on land, in sea, and in space.”

Trump also highlighted Christopher Columbus’s citizenship, tying it to the modern-day alliance with Italy.

Neither the presidential proclamation nor the president’s tweet sharing the proclamation included any mention of indigenous peoples or Columbus’s more complicated legacy that led to the deaths of scores of Native Americans and the spread of disease.

Trump did not mention either subject in his 2017 proclamation. In 2016, former President Obama singled out indigenous peoples for their contributions to the U.S. and acknowledged “the pain and suffering reflected in the stories of Native Americans who had long resided on this land prior to the arrival of European newcomers.”

Indigenous groups and advocates across the country have in recent years pushed for local, state and federal government officials to recognize the holiday as “Indigenous Peoples Day” to recognize the contributions of Native Americans. Several U.S. states and cities do not recognize Columbus Day as a public holiday. South Dakota has celebrated Native American Day for nearly 30 years.

Columbus, Ohio, announced that the city would not observe Columbus Day this year, breaking with decades worth of practice. The city will instead close its offices on Veterans Day.”

Liberals remarked on Twitter.

Columbus was an Italian explorer, as well as colonist and navigator who was most well known for his voyages across the Atlantic Ocean at the behest of the Catholic monarchs in Spain. His actions led to the permanent colonization of America by European countries in the Caribbean, South America, and Central America.

Originally born in the Republic of Genoa, he spoke the native Ligurian language. From a young age, he worked at sea and traveled thoroughly to as far as Iceland and what is now known as Ghana. In his later years, he married a Portuguese woman and eventually took a mistress of Spanish heritage.

Despite little formal education, he was well versed in astronomy, history, and geography, something that many say contributed to his work. His goal all along was to create a western sea passage that would lead to the East Indies in an attempt to profit off of the spice trade which was incredibly lucrative at the time.

After many years of work and lobbying in his behalf, the Spanish monarchs (who were also Catholic) agreed to financially sponsor Columbus’s journey to the west. The journey was to be done in the name of the Crown of Castile. In 1492, Columbus left with his three ships and immediately stopped off at the Canary Islands and eventually made landfall in the Americas. A day, which is now known and celebrated as Columbus Day.

Questions regarding the deaths and imprisonment of natives has led indigenous peoples in recent years to ask for the renaming of Columbus Day. However, the issue has become largely polarized. Many have wanted the name and day to be preserved while others have called for a name change to honor the indigenous peoples who were killed during colonization.

Share if you are glad that President Trump said Happy Colombus Day.

Share if you think it is silly to call it National Indigenous Persons Day.

Share if you believe this is a ridiculous argument and that people should stop talking about it.

Share if you agree that people should be worried about real issues and not these manufactured ones.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

President Trump is an awesome human being. You don’t have to call and beg for help on President Trumps watch, with ever disaster he has been there for each one.

This is a man who truly cares for the American people. It’s nice to have a President that cares.

From ABC News:

Five days into the aftermath of the most disastrous hurricane to hit the Florida Panhandle, survivors are beginning the long road to recovery as officials continue to search for dozens still missing.

Hurricane Michael’s death toll has climbed to 18.

Officials expected the number of people killed by the storm to increase as crews sifted through the wreckage of once-bustling oceanside cities, including Mexico Beach and Panama City Beach, the Associated Press reported.

The powerful storm sounded like a freight train when it barreled into Panama City, said resident Jackie Lane, who was overcome with emotion recalling her experience to ABC News on Monday.

Lane, her husband and her son rode out the storm in an inn down the street from her home. She and her son raced into the bathtub, she said, as her husband sat on the floor and put his feet up against the bathroom door to hold it.

“It was already splitting,” she said of the door, her voice shaking, “and the roof came, the ceiling came off.”

“For about three hours it just sucked us in and sucked us out, sucked us in and sucked us out,” she said. “I thought I was gonna lose my husband cause the door was cracking. And the stove and refrigerator that was in there, we could hear them just backing together and clanging around. We seen the stove fly across us. We seen all the debris, trees, pieces of everything.”

The entire second story of that inn is now gone.

“We lost everything,” Lane said. “We’re lucky to have our lives.”

In nearby Mexico Beach, another town pulverized by Michael, 46 of those who didn’t evacuate were missing still missing on Sunday, the city’s mayor told ABC News.

Mayor Al Cathey said 289 people, including 10 children, decided to stay put despite evacuation orders, and rode out the Category 4 storm that made landfall on Wednesday. Michael devastated homes and businesses in Mexico Beach, which has a population of nearly 1,200.

Of the 18 people killed as the hurricane swept through the Florida Panhandle, Virginia, Georgia and North Carolina, only one confirmed death was reported in Mexico Beach. When Michael made landfall there, winds topped out around 155 mph.

Police made two sweeps of Mexico Beach on Wednesday morning and recorded the names of everyone who planned to stay, though officials said it’s impossible to know who might have left during or immediately after the storm.

Michael knocked out power across the South, and Sunday night almost 700,000 remained powerless across five states, including 188,000 in Florida.

The storm not only destroyed homes and business in the city, it destroyed the Mexico Beach Police Department.

“We don’t have a building — from my understanding, the water surge moved it off its foundation,” Police Chief Anthony Kelly told ABC News on Friday. “The officers, I finally made accountability of them all today, two days after the fact. … They’re not just my officers, the people that I work with, they’re my family.”

Emily Mitchell returned on Saturday afternoon to what was left of the house her family owned in Mexico Beach. The roof was ripped off and walls were blown in. She called it a “total loss.”
