A Kansas bill seeks to join six other states in renaming Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples Day in an attempt to virtue signal to the left.
Newly emboldened Democrats in the Kansas House of Representatives have pre-filed a bill to add Indigenous Peoples Day, a holiday that “recognizes that [Kansas] was founded and built upon lands first inhabited by the indigenous peoples of this region”, to Kansas’ list of publicly recognized holidays.
Unhappy with merely adding a day celebrating the Native American Tribes of Kansas, including the Kanza and Osage, the bill would strike Columbus Day from the record, and replace it with the new holiday.
Ironically, the bill would also remove Native American Day, an existing Kansas holiday celebrated on the fourth Saturday of September in the state since 1945, from the list of state recognized holidays.
According to the text of the bill, Kansas would join Alaska, Hawaii, South Dakota, Vermont, and “a growing number of cities” if it makes the decision to erase Columbus Day from history.
In recent years, leftists have expressed moral outrage toward Christopher Columbus, the Italian explorer who was the first European to discover the Americas and report back to a European monarch in the 1400s. While Columbus’ actions are decried as violence, approaching on genocide, Kansas Democrats have failed to take note of the violent history of Kansas’ own indigenous peoples.
When European explorers first made it to Kansas, they discovered burned villages and dead bodies, and later learned that the Kanza and Pawnee tribes had been engaged in a perpetual, generational war since at least the 1500s, resulting in an untold number of casualties over the centuries, and the near devastation of both tribes.
Kansas Democrats have been brazened in recent days by the recent defection of three Kansas Republicans to the Democrat Party, something those who monitor their voting records knew was inevitable.
Democrats may also view this as an opportunity to thumb their nose at President Donald Trump, who heralded Columbus as “a skilled navigator and man of faith.”
President Donald J. Trump today proclaimed Monday Columbus Day and issued a proclamation without the tortured moral balancing act that marked his predecessor’s previous proclamations.
“Five hundred and twenty-five years ago, Christopher Columbus completed an ambitious and daring voyage across the Atlantic Ocean to the Americas,” said the president.
“The voyage was a remarkable and then-unparalleled feat that helped launch the age of exploration and discovery. The permanent arrival of Europeans to the Americas was a transformative event that undeniably and fundamentally changed the course of human history and set the stage for the development of our great Nation,” he said. “Therefore, on Columbus Day, we honor the skilled navigator and man of faith, whose courageous feat brought together continents and has inspired countless others to pursue their dreams and convictions — even in the face of extreme doubt and tremendous adversity.”
President Trump Announces New 1776 Commission to Promote Patriotic Education in Nation’s Schools
An alternative to leftist brainwashing.
President Donald Trump announced the formation of a new ‘1776 Commission’ during a speech at the National Archives Museum on Thursday, creating a new commission that will work to instill principles of patriotic and pro-American education in defiance to left-wing school and university systems.
The President spoke of the need for the new commission in light of the vision championed by the cultural left, citing the New York Times’ 1619 Project and ‘critical race theory’ anti-white teachings pervasive throughout Fortune 500 companies and federal government agencies. (The President issued an executive order banning critical race theory brainwashing at the beginning of the month.)
The 1776 Commission will work to promote patriotic education and defend American heritage and character. It’s likely the organization will create curriculum that celebrates the American legacy, as leftists in public school and university systems work relentlessly to attack it.
“Our mission is to defend the legacy of America’s founding, the virtue of America’s heroes, and the nobility of the American character,” Trump said of the Commission’s goals. “We must clear away the twisted web of lies in our schools and classrooms and teach our children the magnificent truth about our country. We want our sons and daughters to know that they are the citizens of the most exceptional nation in the history of the world.”
“These radicals have been aided and abetted by liberal politicians, establishment media, and even large corporations,” Trump said. “Whether it is the mob in the street or the cancel culture in the boardroom, the goal is the same: To silence dissent, to scare you out of speaking the truth, and to bully Americans into abandoning their values, their heritage, and their very way of life.”
“We are here today to declare that we will never submit to tyranny. We will reclaim our history and our country for citizens of every race, color, religion, and creed,” the president continued.
The President understands that conservatives and patriots must fight for cultural power as they do for political power, an pressing priority for conservatives who desire to fight back against the cultural left’s domination of the educational world.
