Trump wants to honor Christopher Columbus as an "American Hero" so I'd thought I'd bring this back on your TL
So, Christopher Columbus, who died in 1506 and who never set foot in North America is going to be in the "National Garden of American Heroes" (or is he talking about the movie director)?
While Christopher Columbus and Andrew Jackson made the cut for statues in Trump’s National Garden of American Heroes, Black Cherokee treasure Bessie Coleman didn’t make the list. She was the first African-American woman and first Native American to hold a pilot license. https://t.co/zAsX1se6wg
Whenever I mention that Christopher Columbus' superiors were horrified by the sheer number of natives he insisted on raping, I always add a "Mama Mia!" at the end.
The sheer unmitigated tone-deafness of putting Hannah Arendt and Albert Einstein and Muhammad Ali next to the likes of Christopher Columbus and ANTONIN SCALIA AND BARRY GOLDWATER 😡🤮
Reminding people that Christopher Columbus was such a fuckstick that the European crown he served under revoked his governing rights due to his fuckstickery, and cruel treatment of the local population...
I hope President @JoeBiden
cancels this from day one. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Alex Trebek and Hanna Arendt among others wouldn’t want to be honored by a sadistic criminal who calls mass murderer Christopher Columbus and Andrew Jackson his heroes. https://t.co/cvZ5V5A5oD
The fact that Christopher Columbus is still considered an American Hero shows that we really need to just introduce kids to the dark side of history in Kindergarten
Mars Blackmon on Christopher Columbus:
The Left loves to show their anti-Italian bigotry every time Christopher Columbus is brought up.
It never, ever ends.
On this very important day, it would be remiss of me if I did not acknowledge that Christopher Columbus was a HERO.
Me and the homies hate Christopher Columbus 🤬
Christopher Columbus is on the naughty list even though he's not alive.
I'll just throw some coal at his ghost. https://t.co/M3bMbSa4rx
Christopher Columbus is not an individual who should be celebrated as an American hero for so many reasons. https://t.co/Wx0pI12g20
No way we let a new statue of Andrew Jackson and Christopher Columbus go up
on public land. Occupied Nacotchtank land.
MAGA are very AntiIndigenous pro-genocide. Got that Andy they go up they will come down. #ChingaTuMaga #skoden
I don't get the deification that Christopher Columbus get in american folklore
He's not american
He died before america even existed as a country
He never stepped foot in america
What is the benefit here
Wait... President Trump is establishing a National Garden of American Heroes, and he put Christopher Columbus in it?
Scrap that shit, and give his spot to Louis Lassen, the inventor of the hamburger.
“Ayyyyy I’m a being a genocidal piece a shit ova’ ere!”
-stupid Italian asshole Christopher Columbus https://t.co/dxIlw6jwFI
Trump to honor as an American hero, Christopher Columbus, an Italian, who never set foot on the continent and was wrongly credited with the discovery of America.
At this point, why not honoring, Vladimir Putin as an American hero?
Duck Christopher Columbus.
All my homies hate Christopher Columbus. 😤
there’s no possible way there’s people on this app praising christopher columbus rn
Man fuck Christopher Columbus what the fuck is that shit.
Christopher Columbus is not an American hero. He killed hundreds of native Americans. That is not heroism.
