Skip to comments.Los Angeles cancels Columbus Day
Posted on 08/31/2017 8:49:00 AM PDT by heterosupremacist
The Los Angeles City Council voted 14-1 on Wednesday to officially mark the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples Day on the citys calendar a day to commemorate indigenous, aboriginal and native people. The day will remain a paid holiday for city employees, the Los Angeles Times reported.
The vote followed a contentious hearing, during which some Italian-Americans said the switch would eradicate a key portion of their history, while others argued that city lawmakers needed to dismantle a state-sponsored celebration of genocide indigenous peoples and dismissed the idea of celebrating Indigenous Peoples Day on a different date altogether.

Councilman Mitch OFarrell, a member of Oklahomas Wyandotte Nation tribe, had pushed for the change, saying Wednesday that the move would provide restorative justice. In a blog post prior to the vote earlier this week, OFarrell said the historical record is unambiguous in documenting the horrors Christopher Columbus and his men imposed on the native people in present-day Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
They hate Italians!
I knew it!
I propose we rename Columbus Day “F$$k You Liberals Day.”
The Y & . Tribe.
One of the better known tribes.
“Sir! The Indians are attacking the fort!”
“The Wyandots, Sir!”
“Them again? Throw out some casino chips and they’ll go away.”

Wait a minute. Indigenous peoples were also attacked by other indigenous peoples. No one has clean hands here.
And for the non-believers, here’s an article about the Indian vs. Indian Crow Creek Massacre. There are many examples like this one in history. Not that it matters to today’s liberals.
“to officially mark the second Monday in October as Indigenous Peoples Day on the citys calendar “
I think that Spain and Italy should both use the 2nd monday in October to celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day in their respective homelands. But the Islamist imperialists/colonist hordes aren’t going to like it and neither with the intolerant anti-West Left.
Aztlan was imperialist too!
The Hate America crowd in LA is now indigenous. California needs to secede.
Just because the Indians started out in Massachusetts and ended up defending Santa Monica doesn’t mean they didn’t know how to fight!
Y'all got damn dictators in Haiti and that ain't t'be blamed on Christopher Columbus now is it?
Kind of like blaming Jonestown's failed Socialist homofascist love cult experiment on the Kool Aid Corporation.
François Duvalier (French pronunciation: [fʁɑ̃swa dyvalje]; 14 April 1907 21 April 1971), also known as Papa Doc, was the President of Haiti from 1957 to 1971. He was elected president in 1957 on a populist and black nationalist platform and successfully thwarted a coup détat in 1958. His rule, based on a purged military, a rural militia known as the Tonton Macoute, and the use of cult of personality, resulted in the murder of 30,000 to 60,000 Haitians and the exile of many more.
Prior to his rule, Duvalier was a physician by profession. His profession and expertise in the field acquired him the nickname Papa Doc. He would run in a unannounced one day election, would "earn" a second term. He took the title of President for Life in 1964, after another faulty election, and remained in power until he died in 1971. He was succeeded by his son, Jean‑Claude, who was nicknamed Baby Doc.

Pushed by the LA “Latinos”?
THEY of all people should be celebrating Columbus. Wihtout Columbus you don’t have the Spanish conquerors that followed him in the Western Hemisphere. Without the Spanish, they - people living in and around Mexico City and part of the Aztec/Mextec culture there would not have been north of the Rio Grande.
There were no major Aztec or Mextec settlements more than 200 miles north of Mexico City. The “Mexicans” that came north were first brought north by the Spanish and used to quell opposition from the Native Americans they encountered here.
The European Spanish elite in charge of Mexico became the Mexican elite, and their descendants became the upper classes of Mexico. It is no more a “Native American” society than the U.S. or Canada. BUT Columbus they - “Latinos” - could rightly celebrate. Without him, they’d still be down in Mexico City honoring the Aztec Gods.

So no government aid funds to pay for abortions in the third world. Sounds good.
Columbus sailed under the flag of Spain. Los Angeles is part of a former Spanish colony and the name is Spanish for The Angels.
As for “indigenous people”, people are not indigenous to North America. The incorrectly called “indigenous people” are more accurately called “first settlers”.
The Los Angeles City Council is inhabited by morons ignorant of history.
This is going to be interesting:
<>No beer.... Skill brought to the new world by Germans
<>No one taller than 5’5” allowed in the city
<>Loin cloths only....Well that is pretty much the outfit at the beach and shopping mall. /s
When are the Latinos going to stop clinging to Spanish, the language of their conquerors? Their cultural pride is very queer.
Should we change America’s name? Italian explorer Amerigo Vespucci is best known for his namesake: the continents of North and South America.
If Los Angeles would like to honor someone who actually stepped foot in North America, I humbly volunteer.
