    It’s disgusting that this holiday is still very much alive !. I’m very frustrated that people are still celebrating a holiday honoring a brutal genocidal killer ! This guy Christopher Columbus brought death, violence and pain to the New World !. Columbus Day is a sick joke and must be abolished immediately !.

    Columbus Day Parade Protest
    Saturday, October 8, 2011
    Assemble @ 9am
    bet. Lincoln and Broadway/ Colfax & 14th Ave.
    Denver
    Themes: “Transform Columbus Day – Create a Respectful Future”
    “No Parades for Indian‐Killers,” “No Celebrations of Genocide,”
    The Transform Columbus Day Alliance is based upon mutual respect, sharing the perspective
    that Columbus Day is a racist statement of cultural domination, especially against indigenous
    peoples of the Americas and Africa. Columbus committed genocide against American Indians,
    and was an African slave trader. Celebrations honoring Columbus reinforce historical racism,
    theft, lies, murder, slavery and the destruction of the environment. We reject Columbus as a
    heroic person, and we reject holidays, celebrations or other honors for Columbus.
    This Alliance opposes Columbus Day, Columbus celebrations and the Columbus legacy. Noting
    that the Columbus Day holiday began in Colorado in 1907, this Alliance acknowledges its
    unique responsibility to challenge the Columbus holiday and Columbus celebrations, in Denver,
    and in Colorado.
    This Alliance is dedicated to the transformation of the Columbus holiday from a hateful, racist
    holiday that celebrates conquest and domination to a respectful celebration that calls for a
    future for the Americas without racism, exploitation, or state/corporate domination.We
    repudiate the concept of “discovery,” which is not merely a rhetorical description of Columbus’
    endeavor, but has been extended into specific legal and political doctrines that have been, and
    continue to be, used for the destruction of indigenous peoples. Columbus is the source of the
    discovery doctrine, and must be rejected.

    Columbus day SHIT! While you’re at it you can celebrate Adolf Hitler Day, Heinrich Himmler Day, maybe Pol Pot Day and even Josef Stalin Day – hell – why not Sadam Hussein Day just to be fair and equal! Yeah that’s the idea! Columbus probably would have been alright if he had been associating with decent human men but unfortunately he was the victim of bad influence from those pesky Spaniards! The sooner we dump this inane and immoral celebration of genocide and land theft… the better our credibility will be. Keep up the good fight!
