If you are going to tear down a statue of Christopher Columbus because it is somehow racist against blacks or something, and your city is also named “Columbus,” then you’re going to have to change the name of your city.
This is really hard for me personally, as Columbus is my hometown.
The city of Columbus, Ohio, has already vowed to bring down its statue of Christopher Columbus. But thousands are hoping to erase the city’s connection to Columbus’ legacy even further by renaming it Flavortown in honor of Columbus native Guy Fieri.
As the widespread conversation around police brutality and racial inequality continues into another week, statues of Columbus are being brought down across the nation to bring awareness to the cruelty he brought upon Indigenous people.
Blacks are not “indigenous people.”
See, I keep telling you – this isn’t about blacks. It’s a generalized uprising against white people, a way to recreate the entire country as something other than a European-derived nation as part of a Jewish plot to crush white Christian culture, identity and genetic heritage.
Columbus Mayor Andrew Ginther announced earlier this week that the statue outside City Hall would be removed and placed in storage.
“For many people in our community, the statue represents patriarchy, oppression and divisiveness. That does not represent our great city, and we will no longer live in the shadow of our ugly past,” Ginther said in a statement, according to CNN affiliate WTTE.
But for Tyler Woodbridge, who spent over seven years of his life in Columbus, the statue’s removal wasn’t enough.
Yeah, seven years of his life. He’s not even from here. He’s probably from New York or California.
All of this weird shit that is happening in the Midwest is being forced on us by this rootless coastal trash coming in. We were welcoming to these people, as is our custom, and they took it for weakness and started trying to use our kindness to destroy us.
“Even though it’s my favorite city, I was always a bit ashamed of the name,” Woodbridge told CNN.
So the 32-year-old started a petition to rename the city to Flavortown in honor of Fieri, the celebrity restauranteur who was born in Columbus. Fieri’s use of the expression on his various shows on The Food Network has become his signature catchphrase.
Woodbridge described Fieri as a very “charitable man,” pointing to the fact that the famous restauranteur has helped raise more than $20 million for restaurant workers during the pandemic and that he’s officiated more than 100 LGBTQ weddings.
See, again – “the guy is big into anal, so he’s really a good person and a part of our revolution.” Man-on-man anal has nothing to do with blacks either. Nor does the “patriarchy” he is decrying. It’s simply an attack on our identity as a Christian nation.
I think many of us are just now realizing the importance of these statues we’ve seen our whole lives without giving them much thought. They surround us, as a constant reminder of where we came from.
The Columbus statue in front of city hall is actually quite beautiful.
This announcement of tearing down that statue comes after an announcement that the one at Columbus State Community College would be coming down.
It makes no sense that he is so evil you can’t have a statue of him but the city can be named after him. So it is inevitable that the Democrat mayor is going to announce a change of the city’s name in the coming weeks.
It goes without saying that I oppose this.
But I have to say, of the options, I would definitely prefer “Flavortown.” In fact, I think pressing absurdity is a good strategy. When the blacks were trying to tear down the statue of Sam Houston in Houston a couple years ago, I said that obviously the city would need to be renamed, and forwarded the suggestion of “No Limit City” after Master P’s “No Limit Records.”
Absurdity can be a weapon, in that the more cartoonish things get, the more unstable they get. If something is goofy, it is difficult to take seriously, and everything ends up seeming like a joke. When the enemy presents itself as a joke, and there is a total crisis which is having serious consequences, an opposition that presents itself as fundamentally serious and in opposition to the absurdity is going to have an immediate advantage.
The whites who support this social justice agenda are fundamentally childlike and goofy, so it is easy enough to convince them to take the absurd path instead of the dark and relatively serious one. Of course, seriousness is always going to be difficult for these people given the basic nature of their agenda, but using something like the renaming of cities to press the myth that black people have historic accomplishments gives the pretext that they are serious.
For example, they are replacing Andrew Jackson’s portrait on the $20 bill with Harriet Tubman. This was announced in 2016, and the bills are supposed to enter circulation sometime this year.
Tubman was a nothing figure in history; allegedly, she helped John Brown help slaves escape, but the reality is that she is barely mentioned in history. I argued that Lil Wayne should be put on the $20 bill, as he objectively accomplished a lot more than that grimacing old ape woman.
Basically, black people don’t know what is going on really with anything, nor do they know or care about who Harriet Tubman is. It is an absolute fact of reality that if you polled blacks on whether they wanted Tubman or Lil Wayne on the bill, over 90% would vote Lil Wayne.
It’s too late to change the bill now, but it would have been possible if someone had been clever about it, and marketed the idea to blacks that Tubman represented “white history” that has “nothing to do with the present concerns of people from the community.” Because the program now is that you have to do what the blacks say, it would have been totally possible to get the government to agree to put Lil Wayne on the bill, and you would then increased the absurdity, and thus lessened the power, of the opposition.
This is the sort of outside of the box thinking we need right now.
