An Indian Honors Columbus

Comanche (and by the way classical musician, composer and professor) David Yeagley writes on Columbus from a particular Indian view. He writes that columbus should be honored:

As a Comanche, I see Columbus as a daring, triumphant man. My people had a great penchant for exploring. Considering the circumstances in which he lived, the socio-economic elements, the political environment, the international issues, it is a wonderful thing that a man would be willing to strike out and determine the truth for himself the way he did. The Columbus venture is a statement about the grand courage of an individual man.

Ignore Howard Zinn's victimology review. Writes Yeagley:

Columbus did no evil. Columbus did what all brave men do. He went where no man had gone before—at least as far as he knew, on the route he took...Columbus is entirely innocent of what developed after him. None of that drove him. Aftermath can be attributed to him only in the most artificial, generalized, “academic” theory, the kind for which our modern universities have become lately infamous.

The Left disdains personal heroics. The Left disdains personal interests. Maybe Columbus' "aftermath" was worthy of disdain but we have greater instances of immorality and butchery from Leftists' pursuit of communal interests over the personal. Concludes Yeagley:

Columbus Day should honor Columbus. It’s not about European Civilization.

Forget David Yeagley! BALD BEAGLE is the first American Indian lapdog for American Indian Patriotism, and the only warrior of conservative American Indian philosophy. A pedigreed pup of the highest unmixed lineage (AKC and CDIB registered) and the direct offspring of a full-blooded American Indian warrior, BALD BEAGLE irrefutably puts the “man” in “Comanche.”
