Prince fans have backed a new petition that aims to replace a statue of Christopher Columbus with a monument that celebrates the life of the late music icon…
“Across the nation, city governments are choosing to remove statues of white supremacists, slave owners, and those who threatened the livelihood of Black people,” the new petition states.
“Rather than glorify a man who wanted to extinguish Black and Native peoples, we should honour members of our community whose leadership we find inspirational.
“We, the undersigned, up submit that the Governor Dayton and the Minnesota State Legislature replace the statue of Columbus with statues representative of Minnesota’s Black and Native communities.”
So you want to screw with lefty heads? Change the frame of history. Maybe Columbus was an innocent immigrant, who came here for opportunity and freedom, fleeing an oppressive monarchy and aggressively religious theocracy back home. When he got here, the evil nativist, nationalist Indians tried to close their borders to him, and deport him with violence. Who were they to create borders from thin air, and claim people shouldn’t cross them? Red-skinned fascists, are what they were.
Who is the liberal going to side with? The innocent immigrant, or the evil nationalist anti-immigrant fascists? Do they support fascists, so long as they are brown? Are they merely anti-white racists?
The head-fucking possibilities are endless, and they are all based on truth.
