Why celebrate a beast like Christopher Columbus?

Why celebrate a beast like Christopher Columbus? February 27, 2013

There are two holidays in the US, which are based on myths and genocidal suffering of a very large population of humanity: Thanksgiving and Columbus Day.  Columbus was anything but a normal human.  If you look at what he did to the unsuspecting people he encountered on the land here, you are aghast at how low a human being he was.  To celebrate him is not only to offend the “Native Americans” but all Americans who can think and have a human heart.

As one from India, am I thankful that this beast never made it to the “real” India!!  Unfortunately, for the millions here on these lands who perished at the hands of the Europeans.
