Was Christopher Columbus REALLY a good guys?

Today is Columbus Day and a lot of folks are off work to celebrate and kids all over the place will be learning about a great explorer and his three lovely ships, the Nina< the Pinta<and the Santa Maria. Put on the breaks. Seems like the history we have all been taught about this great man and his expeditions are far from the truth of the man and his finding of the so-called New World. The fun pictures we all colored as kids in school of friendly meetings with the Indians and the tables covered with a feast as smiling Indians and Pilgrims both enjoyed the meal of turkey and the bountiful corn and offerings from the Pilgrims new friends, the evident settlers in the New World. Columbus wrote in one of his log books: They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance…They would make fine servants…With 50 men we could subjigate them all and make them do whatever we want. In 1495 on his second voyage Indians were gathered and transported to Spain with many dying enroute. Columbus wrote: Let us in the name of The Holy Trinity go on sending all the slaves that can be sold. A Catholic Priest Bartolome de la Casas wrote that the Spaniards were driven by insatiable greed, killing, terrorizing, afflicting, and torturing the native peoples with the strangest and most varied new methods of cruelty and how systematic violence was aimed at preventing Indians from daring to think of themselves as human beings. The Spaniards thought nothing of knifing Indians by tens and twentys and cutting off slices of them to test the sharpness of their blades. The Priest wrote further: My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature, and now I tremble as I write. So given this info that our awesome history books so delightfully left out you may look at Columbus Day a little bit different. Christopher Columbus was not the great explorer and discoverer of new worlds we have all been led to believe, in fact, he was what we would call here on the Mornin Fiasco, a real asshat. It’s funny how our history books have painted such a different picture of one of our histories greatest bullys. Kind of makes you wonder about other figures we were taught to view in one light when actually we should have shunned their actions and discredited anything greatness they may have acheived while acting like the ISIS of their time like Christopher Columbus. We here at the Morning Fiasco wonder how one man can claim to have discovered anything another man was standing on. Christopher Columbus died on May 20, 1506, we say let’s celebrate that.
