Tucker Carlson explains that the leftist attacks against homage paid to Christopher Columbus is not about Columbus himself or any of the harsh actions attributed to him during his exploration of the Americas.  The deeds of Columbus are being used as an excuse to attack the values of Western Civilization itself.  As an example, Tucker refers to a recent paper written by a professor who concluded that Western colonization across the world, while flawed, had a net benefit for those countries that embraced Western institutions compared to those that embraced other cultural models. Although that thesis is historically accurate, it was pulled and censored because leftists on the board of the publication didn’t like it. [Columbus and other pioneers of the Western World undoubtedly did use harsh tactics to subdue primitive populations, However, this also is true of the expansion phase of all civilizations and cultures. No exceptions. So, why don’t leftists apply the same condemnation of the dictatorships of South America, the genocides of the Pacific Rim, the enslavement of entire populations by rival tribes in Africa, or the mass exterminations committed by every Communist regime the world has ever known – whose leaders these same leftists revere as gods? The answer is exactly what Tucker has said. It is because this has nothing to do with logic or history, or concern over humanity. It is nothing other than psychological war against the personal liberties that are embedded into the culture of Western Civilization. What remains to be seen is if Western Civilization has sufficient instinct to fight back.] -GEG

GEG:How about the late night English talk show twit lecturing us on the Civil War. He forgets, as to statues, that Westminster Abby has one of that darling, Neville Chamberlain!

JPFO.org has a good book on the purpose of gun control and the mass murdering of national governments against their own people. It’s a 22 nation study entitled, “Lethal Laws: Gun Control is the Key to Genocide”.
