    Nobody ever expects the Spanish Inquisition, certainly not in a thread about Columbus

    When the "liberals" manage something like this I'll pay attention.

    In the minds of Spaniards the land of Flanders became linked to war. The idea of a second Flanders –a place of "endless war, suffering and death"– haunted the Spanish for many years after the war ended. In the 16th and 17th centuries the concept of a second (or "another") Flanders was variously used while referring to the 1591 situation in Aragón, the Catalan Revolt and the 1673 rebellion in Messina. Jesuit father Diego de Rosales described Chile from a military point of view as "Indian Flanders" (Flandes indiano), a phrase that was later adopted by historian Gabriel Guarda.[65]

Still, this blaming Columbus for far all the awful things that occurred when Spain conquered Latin America and all the horrible things that occurred in North America is going way overboard. Columbus behaved in manner that was consistent with the social mores of his age, and I am not saying that as an excuse as much as I am stating a fact. So, I have agree with you, this is a case of political correctness running amok.

          American religious 'conservatives' (read extremists) have told those who don't agree with their brand of religion (I hesitate to call it Christianity) that they will not 'be saved.'

          What do you call that? Same thing, different format.

          And it should be noted that the white supremicists claim to be 'Christian' and they advocate a 'white America.' What do you think they advocate for the rest of us?
          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                    same coin, different sides.

                    "Religious" fanaticism isn't unique to those who go to church.
                    You will find the same closed mindedness in any fanatic.

                    Generally speaking though, religious fanatics in the US on the right, don't tend to engage in violence and destruction to achieve their goals.

                    • Worst ever desecration of a Christopher Columbus statue: 28 Jun 1971, president of the Italian-American Anti-Defamation League and Colombo family boss Joe Colombo was presiding over the second-annual Italian-American Civil Rights rally at Columbus Circle. While delivering an address to the crowd, out stepped Jerome Johnson, a small-time drug addict disguised as a newspaper photographer, armed with a sidearm, with which he proceeded to shoot Joe Colombo three times -- right there at the feet of the famed "Genovese" map-maker.



                      Joe Colombo never did recover from his wounds, and remained the rest of his life "vegetablized," according to Jerome Johnson's alleged "handler," Crazy Joey Gallo. Gallo himself would be assassinated not too long afterwards, at Umberto's Clam House on Mulberry Street in Little Italy. The funniest part about the whole thing was that Christopher Columbus wasn't even Italian, but Catalan: since Catalonia and King Ferdinand's Castille had been at war not too long before, Columbus thought it wise to maintain a Genovese idendity rather than a Catalonian.

                        Really? You've got to be kidding.

                        Those groups want a 'white' America which means getting rid of anyone 'of color', Jews, and Roman Catholics (that is one of the innate prejudices of the KKK).

                        Satisfied?

                            I don't think that would help the situation unless you believe that 'Calypso Louie' is a font of knowledge.

                              • So now you're going to stand up for the KKK?

                                That is monstrous. And it should be remembered that there are lies, damned lies, and then statistics.

                                You're also wanting to compare two 'groups' of grossly unequal numbers which is not logical nor is it valid.

                                How much mathematics did you say you have taken?
