The Italian American community was together in what seemed like a stronger and more symbolic sign of pride today at the Columbus Day Parade. As the rain came down the sound of Frank Sinatra could be heard echoing down 6th avenue, the Italian and United States flags waved side by side every where you turned. Italian Americans generally aren’t vocal about politics, most having parents or grand parents who had grown up under the rule of National Fascist Party dictator Benito Mussolini and have heard stories of the poverty and horror that many Italians suffered.
Not only today but the month of October is Italian Heritage month, so the Columbus Day parade is the one day that gives a chance for the Italian American community to celebrate where they come from and show appreciation to the country they live in. The recent vandalism by the masked cowardice Antifa anarchists and calls to tear down all Christopher Columbus statues have been met with strong pushback from Italian Americans.
The last 3months the history of our country and the men who helped it become what it is today have been under constant attack from radical left wing anarchists. Five Columbus statues have already been vandalized in NYC and they had plans to deface and destroy any other statues today was a predictable move by them. Law enforcement was properly organized with an advance in the plans being announced to the public to cause havoc and destruction. This put all law enforcement in an advantaged position to not only protect the integrity of these statues but also protect anyone who opposes the anarchists and their asinine views on the statues and monuments. Two protesters stood in the pouring rain in Columbus Circle in front of the barricaded statue with a sign that said ” Happy Columbus Day ” in red and was surrounded by the words ” genocide, rapist, terrorist, racist and murderer. ” The misinformed ( uneducated protesters actually believed Columbus entered the ” New World ” with force and came with a military
To most Italian Americans Christopher Columbus is a symbol to their connection to the United States, and a way that ties in their heritage into Americas history. The radical left wing anarchists are either uninformed, misinformed or uneducated at all about who Christopher Columbus is and what exactly it is that he did. Christopher Columbus was a nautical navigator and explorer, well know for creating very detailed maps of the ocean. Columbus made four transatlantic voyages (1492–93, 1493–96, 1498–1500, and 1502–04) and opened the way for European exploration. He has long been called the “discoverer” of the New World, although Vikings such as Leif Eriksson had visited North America five centuries earlier. Columbus made his transatlantic voyages under the sponsorship of Ferdinand II and Isabella I, the Catholic Monarchs of Aragon, Castile, and Leon in Spain. Columbus was not a military man or even mind for that matter and he did not attempt to colonize America. His discovery of America was an accident as he was searching for new trade routes hoping to cash in with the Spanish government for his findings.
President Trump Defends American Heritage in Mount Rushmore Celebration
The President defended American heritage, images, and traditions against the cultural Left.
President Donald Trump delivered a full-throated defense of American heritage, traditions, and history during his Independence Day celebration event at Mount Rushmore on Friday, pledging to defend icons of American civilization from the onslaught of a fanatical cultural Left intent on destroying and pillaging them.
The President pledged that the American monument at which he spoke would “never be destroyed” by the cultural fanatics determined to destroy images of other American Presidents, such as Andrew Jackson and Ulysses Grant.
“I am here as your President to proclaim before the country, and before the world,” pledged the President, “this monument will never be desecrated. These heroes will never be defaced. Their legacies will never ever be destroyed. Their achievements will never be forgotten, and Mount Rushmore will stand forever as an eternal tribute to our forefathers and to our freedom.”
An attempt to prevent the event by left-wing rioters by barricading off the public access road to Mount Rushmore failed, with law enforcement towing away sabotaged vehicles they planted on the road to prevent Americans from participating in political expression.
The President spoke against the insidious agenda of the cultural left, calling out the major corporations and societal institutions that have cheered on the recent attack throughout American society against patriotic traditions.

“And yet, as we meet here tonight, there is a growing danger that threatens every blessing our ancestors fought so hard for, struggled and bled, to secure. Our nation is witnessing a merciless campaign to wipe out our history, defame our heroes, erase our values, and indoctrinate our children.”
MAGA conservatives and America First Nationalists largely saluted the speech as one of the greatest of Trump’s presidency, speaking with clarity in defense of American identity in an era where liberal fanaticism threatens the fabric of the American way of life.
