I don't think there's been a Columbus Day parade since Coleman has been in office. If the dozen or so had not gathered yesterday would Columbus Day have been noted at all except as a day off for some with free parking Downtown?

They are protesting the concept of Manifest Destiny and the power of Western European civilization. The alternative is to live like the aborigines or the hippies, filthy dirty and infested with diseases and bed bugs and lice.

If they feel that guilty, they should go back to the land of their ancestors.

"Carol Sandoval of Worthington said she took her two sons, 11 and 8, out of school so they could attend the gathering. She is part Apache..."

Has Ms "part Apache" Sandoval explained to her sons that she and they would likely not be here if Columbus had not sailed west?

Hater. The filth came from the Europeans who brought small pox. Hateful comments are just proof of ignorance

I have guilt either, even though some of my ancestors were probably killing your ancestors

Would be in tune with them politically, the Old Country is also a socialist land...

We won, they lost. We should learn some lessons though, the descendents of Asians who were here "first" would still rule today if they had border control.

Some followers of Howard Zinn won't be happy until the whole world lives in Anti-Western mulitcultural socialism. We have a place for that it's called Cuba and Venezuela.

Hippies and liberals hate their own culture. They need to live in third world nations until they appreciate and love this Country. Moo Slums and Africans would all starve to death without handouts and oil from our great country.

America love it or leave it - hippies.

U.S.A. is #1.

This is how liberals think. They are delusional with their self loathing and their hatred of their own wonderful culture, especially its power and influence. This is why liberalism is a mental disorder.

“Why do we have statues of Christopher Columbus, which represents the worst of our culture and the worst of our people?” shouted Bob Fitrakis, a political-science professor at Columbus State Community College.

Response: Because Christopher Columbus was a winner. Without him you wouldn't be here. This is why liberalism is a mental disorder. Students at Columbus State deserve a refund!

“I grew up ashamed of who I am,” she said.“In schools, they glorify Thanksgiving and the pilgrims, but I want (my sons) to learn about how every action has a reaction.”

Response: That’s your problem. The pilgrims were winners, without them we wouldn't be here. The fact is that your people were primitive hunter gatherers who failed to match the technological advances of other nations.
