The left is saying, "I don't like this holiday, so YOU can't celebrate it."

Just like, "I don't like guns, so you can't have one."



You win the prize for broad brush painting. All my lefty friends have at least a pistol and a shotgun for home protection.

Don't let your ideology get in the way of your common sense.


Just curious, did they use their guns to knock over statues that offended them or are they saving the bullets to shoot poeople who don't think like them?


I don't really know but I hope you have an arsenal for when the "boogaloo" boiz come looking for you.


I'm old and crippled.

Might as well let your Marxist friends know that I'm an easy target.

Besides being old and crippled, you are intellectually constipated if you think I'm a Marxist.

I've been a businessman, shopkeeper, entrepreneur since I was 19 and got my first LLC. I sign the paychecks for others, I don't receive one by working for the man. Or at least I used to...Now Union SAG and IATSE.

My little store is a Covid19 casuality.



That ideology has your mind in a fu+*ed up place.

I figure you to be an actual Marxist, profiting off the sweat of others while claiming purity of ideology.

I have never considered you a person who would defend individuality, individual right, individual freedoms, free expression, or even the Constitution.
We really don't agree on much and I always try to stay consistant on my support for freedom.

This isn’t about history, this is about stealing stuff, and breaking the law with impunity.


So it sounds like you are on the side of the Native Americans and/or blacks that were forcedly snatched up to be sold off as slaves. Lots of stealing. Lots of law breaking with impunity.

Ohhhh wait, you don't mean large scale genocide, raping of people, land, and the historic canceling of entire cultures that would have ripple effects into the present day... you're talking about someone breaking a window and stealing a 12 pack of miller lite. Got it. Not about history.

If it upsets you that much Karen, then don't celebrate it.

But your authoritarian aspect is to deny anyone else to celebrate it.

Gotta love the right's attempt to rewrite the word "Karen" to mean the opposite of what it means. Just like they've tried to rewrite the terms Marxism, Socialism, Communism, Racism, Sexism, etc.

Deflect and distort, destroy the meanings of words, red scare, anecdotal stories as evidence, stars and flags! Tight playbook.

Y'all need to make your own fictional dictionary at this point. There's a solid, if not minor, purchasing base for it. Cash in brotha! Comes with coupon for Goya bean 6-pack!

My business didn't close.
Nothing here "irks" me.

Funny to see anti trumpers admit getting paid by the russians tho, you know after hurling anti american accusations at el cheeto grande.

Funny to see who actually did take that filthy russian money.

I completely forgot about this til just today. Dude I Sh#! you not.

The "ALL BLACK rodeo" has been around a long time.



I never once thought of it as offensive discriminating or racist.

Never even thought to be offended.

This quote indicates the new ideology setting in.


"Still to this day, people—all they see is a white cowboy or a white cowgirl. That's the only image they have. What we're trying to do is change that."

Transported by the brits?


Those bastard Brits again, responsible for all the worlds problems.

Ignore the FACT that if there hadn't been so many Americans wanting to buy and own other human beings and use and treat them as if they were no better than a farm animal then the slave trade would never have been the massive industry that it became.

And many nations were actively involved and/or invested in the slave trade.....no-one comes out of it in a good light.
It's not a part of history that portrays human beings in general in a particularly good light.

Its easy to ignore ALL the facts and blame anyone and everyone else.

I think its wrong to re-write history or to use todays morals and values to judge the acts and deeds of yesterday.
And I acknowledge that slavery existed right around the globe well before the trans-Atlantic slave trade started and that shamefully it still exists today.
Nor do I think its right to be selective about the facts in order to point fingers of blame at specific sections of society or even nations in order to further various political and idealogical agenda's, viewpoints or whatever hyper sensitive dictates are currently in vogue within Academia and the snowflake generation.

The truth is many, many different nations and people were involved in the slave trade and the whole episode is a stain on mankind as a whole.
No amount of whitewash or spin will ever change that and that is why the truth, the whole truth, no matter how uncomfortable some people are with that should be out there for all to see and hopefully learn from.

Early morning rant over.

Because history is"His story" the story told by the victors,Columbus discovered nothing,part of fake narrative

it seems nobody was able to read, or perhaps understand the OP.

This is about so much more than just Columbus. It's exposing the logic fail that ensues when you feel you must "cancel" someone for their past. Where does it end? Columbus wasn't independently wealthy, he had investors who sent him. He had a nation sponsor him. Do those people bear any responsibility in his actions? What about the other ship captains who pillaged and plundered their way through the spice islands? They all came from somewhere. Does England get canceled as a whole, or do we just start with the ports and work back from there?

I agree with most of this, but by your logic, Drug Dealers are just an innocent byproduct of those horrible users with their insatiable appetite for drugs.
