On the second Monday of October, the United States invites you to celebrate the beginning of 523 years of bloodthirsty and intentional genocide against the indigenous peoples of Turtle Island and the rest of the western hemisphere which started with the arrival on October 12, 1492 of Cristóbal Colón on the island known as Quisquea & Haïti.

American government offices, banks and public schools are closed to honor the slaughter and the legacy of sociopaths behind the holocaust, including Cristóbal Colón, Francisco Pizarro González, Captain John Smith, Lord Jeffrey Amherst, David Crockett, Andrew Jackson, Pastor John M. Chivington, Theodore Roosevelt, L. Frank Baum and Harry H. Laughlin. This should also include those men who cited as their personal inspiration that legacy and those methods of murder and disenfranchisement, such as Adolf Hitler.

Parades are held, speeches are given, and when school resumes, students will be taught of the heroism inherent in destroying cultures, torturing men women and children, and stealing resources: the legacy of european colonization theory and the Discovery Doctrine.

Most Anglos and European invaders claim it was all an accident, it was disease, it was because Indians were weak. It was because they were primitive pagans, closer to animals than humans. The one thing they can agree on is there was no Holocaust. They deny the Holocausts with all their strength, while praising the benefits of their culture and heritage as good and holy.

Such claims do not match the historical record though.

"[The Spaniards] took babies from their mothers’ breasts, grabbing them by the feet and smashing their heads against rocks. . . . They built a long gibbet, low enough for the toes to touch the ground and prevent strangling, and hanged thirteen at a time in honor of Christ Our Saviour and the twelve Apostles. . . . Then, straw was wrapped around their torn bodies and they were burned alive.”

“As the Spaniards went with their war dogs hunting down Indian men and women, it happened that a sick Indian woman who could not escape from the dogs, sought to avoid being torn apart by them, in this fashion: she took a cord and tied her year-old child to her leg, and then she hanged herself from a beam. But the dogs came and tore the child apart; before the creature expired, however, a friar baptized it."

“They would cut an Indian’s hands and leave them dangling by a shred of skin. . . they would test their swords and their manly strength on captured Indians and place bets on the slicing off of heads or the cutting of bodies in half with one blow. . . . [One] cruel captain traveled over many leagues, capturing all the Indians he could find. Since the Indians would not tell him who their new lord was, he cut off the hands of some and threw others to the dogs, and thus they were torn to pieces.”

“With my own eyes I saw Spaniards cut off the nose, hands and ears of Indians, male and female, without provocation, merely because it pleased them to do it. . . . Likewise, I saw how they summoned the caciques and the chief rulers to come, assuring them safety, and when they peacefully came, they were taken captive and burned.”

“Because he did not give the great quantity of gold asked for, they burned him and a number of other nobles and caciques . . . with the intention of leaving no prince or chieftain alive in the entire country.”

“They threw into those holes all the Indians they could capture of every age and kind.. . . Pregnant and confined women, children, old men [were] left stuck on the stakes, until the pits were filled. . . . The rest they killed with lances and daggers and threw them to their war dogs who tore them up and devoured them."

“When the Spaniards had collected a great deal of gold from the Indians, they shut them up in three big houses, crowding in as many as they could, then set fire to the houses, burning alive all that were in them, yet those Indians had given no cause nor made any resistance."

“Yet into this sheepfold, into this land of meek outcasts there came some Spaniards who immediately behaved like ravening wild beasts, wolves, tigers, or lions that had been starved for many days. And Spaniards have behaved in no other way during the past forty years, down to the present time, for they are still acting like ravening beasts, killing, terrorizing, afflicting, torturing, and destroying the native peoples, doing all this with the strangest and most varied new methods of cruelty, never seen or heard of before, and to such a degree that this Island of Hispaniola, once so populous (having a population that I estimated to be more than three millions), has now a population of barely two hundred persons.”, B. de las Casas

“As for the vast mainland, which is ten times larger than all Spain, even including Aragon and Portugal, containing more land than the distance between Seville and Jerusalem, or more than two thousand leagues, we are sure that our Spaniards, with their cruel and abominable acts, have devastated the land and exterminated the rational people who fully inhabited it. We can estimate very surely and truthfully that in the forty years that have passed, with the infernal actions of the Christians, there have been unjustly slain more than twelve million men, women, and children. In truth, I believe without trying to deceive myself that the number of the slain is more like fifteen million.” — B. de las Casas

“I knew that they were a people who could better be freed and converted to our Holy Faith by love than by force, gave to them some red caps and to others glass beads, which they hung about their necks, and many other things of slight value, in which they took much pleasure. ... They ought to be good servants and of good skill, for I see that they repeat very quickly whatever is said to them.” - Cristóbal Colón, October 12, 1492

“We captured this canoe with all the men. One cannibal was wounded by a lance blow and thinking him dead we left him in the sea. Suddenly we saw him begin to swim away; therefore we caught him and with a long hook pulled him aboard where we cut off his head with an axe. When I was in the boat, I took a beautiful Cannibal girl and the admiral [Cristóbal Colón] gave her to me. Having her in my room and she being naked as is their custom, I began to want to amuse myself with her. Since I wanted to have my way with her and she was not willing, she worked me over so badly with her nails that I wished I had never begun. To get to the end of the story, seeing how things were going, I got a rope and tied her up so tightly that she made unheard of cries which you wouldn’t have believed. At the end, we got along so well that, let me tell you, it seemed she had studied at a school for whores. The admiral named the cape on that island the cape of the Arrow for the man who was killed by the arrow.” - Michele da Cuneo, October 28, 1495

“Now that so much gold is found, a dispute arises as to which brings more profit, whether to go about robbing or to go to the mines. A hundred castellanos are as easily obtained for a woman as for a farm, and there are plenty of dealers who go about looking for girls; those from nine to ten [years old] are now in demand, and for all ages a good price must be paid.” - Cristóbal Colón, 1500

You Are Still Being Lied To: Columbus and the Myth of Human Progress


Many people are interested in Columbus Day. Comments from non-indigenous people occupying indigenous lands often have a similar vibe to them. The following are actual comments from settlers exposed to the historical reality of Columbus.

This land is MY land. I took it by force FAIR AND SQUARE. If you wanted it you would have defended it properly. GROW UP.
America wouldn't be what it is today without Europeans. Can you imagine Native Americans or blacks running a country? LMAO, it would be like Africa.
Hip Hooray for America and Queen Isabella!
Exactly!!! an italian discovered the land
If the Caucasians are dumb, and they managed to exploit the rest of the world, so the rest of the world must be....dumber?
Cuz he was a great man who discovered America and saved it from the savage barbarians who were squatting on it.

All these are fascinating reactions to the historical facts of Columbus. Feel free to keep expressing these things you have been taught in school and we will keep colating them.
