Columbus Brought Immigrants

He didn’t on his first voyage, but beginning with his second voyage, he left colonists in the New World. Of course, it’s now politically incorrect to celebrate Columbus and his voyages of discovery. “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” is now more proper, or so I’m told. The funny thing is that the same people who seem to celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day also support current immigration who, for the most part, are Hispanic and at least partially descended from the colonists Columbus and the early explorers brought.

Oh, one more thing … the Siberian-Americans who are the descendants of the people who came into North America at the end of the last ice age may not have been the first folks here. There’s now evidence that they were preceded by roughly a thousand years by Europeans who navigates along the edge of the North Atlantic ice shelf. If that’s the case, then the real indigenous people were Europeans.

  1. And there’s evidence of some South Pacific groups reaching South America.

    This isn’t the “New World” in any real sense — people have been here a LONG time, doing what people do. For better or worse “what people do” includes migration, replacement, and, yeah, genocide.

  2. I’m a proud member of the Cherokee nation. I can also claim a blood quantum that’s quite a bit higher than a certain politician from Massachusetts.

    If I’m not mistaken, our tribe only has about 8k full-bloods remaining in our ranks.

    That’s pretty sad in my opinion.
