Year after year, decade after decade, the United States of America celebrates Columbus Day. Christoper Columbus “founded” America and it became the land of the free. Well, that is what they tell everyone in elementary school. He founded the greatest country on earth. I’ve even heard former Presidents say that even though the United States have a dark past, Christoper Columbus should still be celebrated because he is the reason we are all here today.
Let me first say that the United States is the most hypocritical country in the world. Christopher Columbus was the greatest murderer in the history of human life. He was a sick rapist that believed in raping women and small little girls until they submit to him. He believed in enslaving people in order to control them. The affects of what this man did in the 15th century still linger on today.
Yet the United States still celebrate this man. Well if that is the case, I believe those who oppose the United States in the Middle East should still celebrate Isis and Osama Bin Laden. If anyone has a problem with that, lets just remember that the Isis and Osama Bin Laden has a dark past, but are overall good people.
