Cities where moonbats have taken control (e.g., Phoenix, Seattle, Portland) have been expressing their hatred of Western Civilization by renaming Columbus Day in honor of indigenous peoples, as if Columbus’s world-changing accomplishment of spreading European culture to the New World, thereby lifting it out of the Stone Age, were somehow a bad thing. Bloomington, Indiana — rendered insane by the presence of the Indiana University campus — sees these kook-controlled towns and raises it one Good Friday:
The city of Bloomington, Indiana, has renamed Good Friday and Columbus Day because the names imply a cultural insensitivity, according to the Bloomington Herald-Times.
The new, more politically-correct names will help make the holidays more inclusive, the mayor said.
How excluding us from our own culture and heritage by eradicating our holidays on the grounds that they are politically unclean constitutes being “inclusive” is not explained.
Because Columbus and Jesus are so offensive to moonbat sensibilities, these special days will henceforth be known by evocative new titles rich in cultural meaning: “Fall Holiday” and “Spring Holiday.” Once people have forgotten why these are holidays in the first place, it will be safe to quietly wipe them off the calendar.
With Fall Holiday already having been taken, at least they won’t be able to rename Thanksgiving, which is also deemed to be politically incorrect, until they think of another title. No doubt bureaucrats are at work on this task now.
