The Violent Left Toppling Monument to Christopher Columbus as a Racist?

by Martin Armstrong, Armstrong Economics:

The extreme violent left is expanding their desire to overthrow essentially everything and are now attacking a monument in Baltimore to Christopher Columbus, which was believed to be the first one erected to the Italian explorer in America. Italians were discriminated against and seen as all criminals connected to the Mafia. This monument was a milestone for Italians. So what is next? The extreme left will attack Italians celebrating Columbus Day? The same white supremacists of the 18th century did not consider Italians “white” nor Greeks or Spanish.

The tape begins saying:

“Christopher Columbus symbolizes the initial invasion of European Capitalism into the Western Hemisphere. Columbus initiated a centuries old wave of terrorism murder genocide rape slavery economic degradation and capitalist exploitation of labor in America. That Colombian wave of destruction continues on the back of indigenous African American and brown people…”

They do not dare say that Columbus initiated the slave trade. Did Columbus’ men take their women etc, yes, that also seems to have been historically standard during those days. There was a whole argument that the indigenous people of the America’s could NOT be made salves because the right to sell people into slavery was limited historically to the loser in a war. The Catholic Church blocked turning the American Indians into slaves who were neither white, yellow (Asian) nor black but the fourth race known as red because they were not the spoils of war.

There was no such thing as  indigenous black people in America. The blacks were being sold by blacks to the Dutch on the pretense that they were the spoils of war and that made the slave trade acceptable from a historical precedent. Thus, the blacks from Africa could be sold as slaves but not the of the indigenous people Americas.

If this new Marxist uprising from the left calling everything racist and capitalists is the trend, then to correct history blacks should return to Africa, Italians to Italy etc. and the USA should be turned over to the American Indians who were the ONLY  indigenous people. How far back in time do we go to reverse the past?

The left now calls Christopher Columbus a “genocidal terrorist.” These extreme people on the left who are Marxist and want a revolution to take all the wealth of others for themselves, are acting the same as the Taliban who were blowing up ancient statutes claiming they were false gods trying to erase history. The Christians also destroyed ancient statues beheading them because they too assumed any statue was a god, which was not true. There was the Temple of Alexandria established by Cleopatra to support the claim of her son to the power of Rome. The Christians beheaded the statues in there and they even carved a cross into the forehead of Germanicus, who was a member of the Julio-Claudian Family expanded by Octavian (Augustus) after he defeated Cleopatra and Marc Antony as announced on this gold aureus.

Here too we see the famous black bust of Julius Caesar commissioned by Cleopatra which stood in that temple. It too was also vandalized by the Christians. This attack upon historical monuments has typically been carried out always by extremists who would justify killing anyone with the same rhetoric. You disagree with them and the insults like fascist or racist is then attached to you and they would kill you in a blink of an eye if they gain power.

The monument in Baltimore, which features a two-story-tall obelisk atop a base, was still standing on Monday morning, but there was a gaping hole in the front and chunks of stone were scattered in the grass. The signs seen in the video were lying on the ground.

Confederate statues have been removed overnight in many places to appease these people again trying to eradicate history. In Annapolis, state officials followed suit and removed a statue of the Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, who authored the 1857 Dred Scott decision that upheld slavery. The statues of the Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson, the Confederate Women’s monument, the Confederate Soldiers and Sailors Monument were all targeted. Here, Columbus had nothing to do with the Civil War. The lettering on the front of the monument — “Sacred to the memory of Chris. Columbus, Octob. XII, MDCCVIIIC” — was rendered unreadable. In Boston, a Columbus statue was painted red and a protest was held at a statue in Detroit.
