â€œYouâ€™ve gotta respect everyoneâ€™s beliefs.” No, you donâ€™t. Thatâ€™s what gets us in trouble. Look, you have to acknowledge everyoneâ€™s beliefs, and then you have to reserve the right to go: “That is fucking stupid. Are you kidding me?”
It’s Columbus Day so we Americans are going to be forced to hear and/or read various rants about genocide and American Imperialism…and various and sundry insults about Christopher Columbus. Pretty much, only Thanksgiving brings out the Anti-Americanism of the Liberals and Progressives more than Columbus Day.
Happy Columbus Day!
So here’s a bit of Native American beauty to leaven the screeds and rants, and a reminder that not all, or even most, of our ancestors’ – assuming you even have an ancestor that was here at the time – relations with the indigenous population were unpleasant. 😉
Obama just loves insulting Americans. He loves to call us: bitter,lazy, selfish, and the always popular with him and his sort, racist. This is an odd view for someone who claimed he wanted to bring us all together, but it’s not an odd position for this petulant, narcissistic little boy play-acting at being a man to hold.
If some of these folks were around when Columbus set sail, they probably must have been founding members of the flat earth society.

The boy’s latest “quips,” describing the vast majority of Americans who disagree with the direction Obama is trying to steer our energy sector into as stupid “Flat-Earthers” is par for the course and perfectly in keeping with Campaigner-in-Chief’s politics of division.
That’s What Happens When You Let The Powder Monkey Navigate
It’s quite, though unintentionally, apropos that the boy referenced Christopher Columbus when describing his own efforts to explore “green energy” technologies.
Columbus never achieved his goal of finding a new route to the spice rich Orient; his four voyages all ended in failure; at one point was arrested and imprisoned for multiple atrocities; and he eventually died a pauper and the subject of jokes.
