Kansas Democrats Fight Dead Columbus

At a time when the pandemic still ravages the Sunflower State and the unemployment system is in serious need of overhaul amid historic demand . . . Rewriting history inspires the super-minority party.

Kansas Democrats push to end harmful narrative of Columbus Day

Deets . . .

"American Indian legislators spoke Tuesday in support of a bill that aims to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous People’s Day in Kansas. The bill seeks to recognize the “historic, cultural and contemporary significance of the Indigenous peoples” of the Americas and Kansas on the second Monday in October each year. Proponents argued the change would not only show respect for the tribal communities of Kansas but encourage a more accurate recounting of the history of the Americas."

The legislation doesn't have much of a chance among the GOP majority that seems to be taking up a more adversarial role against their colleagues at the outset of the Biden years.

The American Indian would still be digging holes in the ground to shit in if the Europeans had never showed up. Thousands of years, nearly zero accomplishments.

If it's not one thing it will be something else. Democrats are sick people they are just like ANTIFA as a matter of fact they are ANTIFA. They want to bitch about everything until they take the United States down to communism. Oh and there are no Biden years he was NOT elected by the people. The evidence of voter fraud was 100% proven and shown to the people. The black population in this country did most of the fraud. It was tyranny against this country and they should be punished as a traitor to this country punishable by DEATH!

Ironically, Columbus Day was created to recognize the historic, cultural and contemporary significance of the Italian peoples. It made them feel like they were part of America too.

that is ironic 4:14

"For the 400th anniversary in 1892, following a lynching in New Orleans where a mob had murdered 11 Italian immigrants, President Benjamin Harrison declared Columbus Day as a one-time national celebration.[10][11] The proclamation was part of a wider effort after the lynching incident to placate Italian Americans and ease diplomatic tensions with Italy"

If it becomes Indigenous Peoples' Day there will be no celebration at all. Because there are no indigenous peoples. The ancestors of everyone in North and South America came here from Europe, Asia or Africa.

Yep! We can celebrate an ethnic minority that experienced systemic racism, but then proceeded to achieve great things without half a century of cradle to grave welfare and an inexhaustible victim complex.

ironically, again, the US national anthem Pledge of Allegiance was written for the celebration of Columbus day 1892, and the lynching of the italians was because they murdered a police chief.
In the name of new understandings!

by all means, the politicians should go full puritanical circle and run a clean early21st cent fictional narrative about rescinding the political spirit of the day and the debut of the Pledge of allegiance!

And the author of the Pledge of Allegiance, Rev Bellamy was a Christian Socialist.

3:58 you mean national negro month right?

5:41 I just looked up the pledge of allegiance and no where does it say anything about appeasing the Italians after some hangings, it was originally created in 1887 by Captain George T. Balchy and changed four more times after that to what it is today.

So instead of parades, we have simulated human sacrifices?

CATAMITES! Let us call them the S and M Catamites! This does not discriminate by pronouns, because a straight arrow, cis-gendered male can be a catamite just as easily as can Mammy Funkhouser! All they need is a little tube of Vaseline and a big, comfy pillow to press her or his face into.

6:30 i am concerned about your research skills

The first quote with "For the 400th anniversary in 1892..." is from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbus_Day

in the "history" section.

The rest of the paragraph of that quote "The proclamation was part of a wider effort after the lynching incident to placate Italian Americans and ease diplomatic tensions with Italy.[10] During the anniversary in 1892, teachers, preachers, poets and politicians used rituals to teach ideals of patriotism. These rituals took themes such as citizenship boundaries, the importance of loyalty to the nation, and the celebration of social progress, included among them was the Pledge of Allegiance by Francis Bellamy.[12]"

The 11 italians lynched in New orleans: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/March_14,_1891_New_Orleans_lynchings

Or perhaps another articles from a journal of sorts.

Yeah . . . so instead of a crappy Columbus Day parade, we get a crappy ghost dance.

Nonsense like this makes my wounded knee act up
