Left-Wing Groups Plan Nationwide ‘Deface Columbus Day’

According to a WND (WorldNetDay) report, violent left-wing anarchists have announced a nationwide campaign to deface Christopher Columbus statues this coming Monday.

Those left-wingers label themselves Antifa, a shortening of anti-fascism, even though their violent actions are essentially fascist.

Five Christopher Columbus statues have already been vandalized in New York City in recent weeks, according to Far Left Watch. In one case last month, vandals defaced a “larger-than-life” statue of Columbus in Central Park, leaving blood-red paint on his hands, and scrawled, “Hate will not be tolerated” and “#SomethingsComing” on its pedestal.

What is coming appears to be a coordinated campaign to destroy monuments all across the country on Columbus Day.

Left-wing and Black Lives Matter groups see Christopher Columbus, who was an Italian navigator of Jewish extraction, as an oppressor against Indian minorities. Just because he was white.

Columbus wanted to save an oppressed people

Very far from oppressing anyone, Columbus wanted to save Jews, who were oppressed and treated as “Marranos” —which means pigs in Spanish. His effort to discover new lands, resulting in the discovery of America, was to find a safe place for the Jews.

In a sense and spectacularly, Columbus was successful. The United States, which are the largest Protestant nation in the world, became the greatest refuge for Jews that the world has ever seen. And the U.S. “trade name” is: AMERICA. America became the nation that achieved the largest awareness campaign against the Inquisition’s horrors the world has ever seen.

Yet, left-wing anarchists want to pervert Columbus’s image and mission, which was to save the oppressed Jewish people. Those anarchists are the actual oppressors who, 500 years ago, would be arm in arm with the Inquisition’s thieves and killers.

According to a DailyMail report:

There is compelling evidence that suggests Christopher Columbus was secretly Jewish and that he hid his true faith to survive the Spanish Inquisition.

Historians believe the real motive behind his historic quest was to find a new homeland for Jews who were persecuted and run out of Spain.

The Spanish Inquisition tortured tens of thousands of Marranos, who were ordered to give up the names of others — including friends and relatives.

Marranos who had their secret lives exposed were paraded in front of crowds, tied to stakes and burned alive while the crown and the church divided and took their land and personal possessions.

It has been claimed that Columbus was a Marrano and that keeping his Jewish heritage secret was crucial to his survival.
