Columbus Wasn’t Indigenous – Neither Were "American Indians"

October 14, 2019


As another Columbus Day is upon us, we are reminded again why the loony left is so aptly named and why we describe them as “low information.” 

We all know Columbus didn’t just innocently “sail the ocean blue in 1492.” We all know it should be: “Columbus came in with the tide, for the sole purpose of Genocide.” 

We know Ferdinand and Isabella said: “So Chris – we hear you want to sail off and discover a new world or something.” And Columbus said: “Nah – I thought I’d go kill some Injuns.” “Great idea - here’s some cash for the trip.” 

And for this reason, liberals across the nation have been protesting the celebration of this murderer. Instead of Columbus Day, many cities and enclaves of higher learning have begun making the politically correct change to “Indigenous People’s Day, and First Peoples' Day.” A few years ago Seattle made the switch to “a holiday that will honor and celebrate the cultural contributions of Native Americans.” Hooray for Indigenous People! Boo for genocidal European illegal immigrant interlopers! 

And it continued at the University of Oklahoma, where a student “organization” calling themselves “Indigenize OU” made demands that Columbus be thrown on the ash heap of history and replaced with the aforementioned “Indigenous Peoples' Day.” This “organization” actually consisted of four – yes four, American Indian students.

Naturally, the OU student government bowed to the FOUR students' demand and voted to scrap Columbus. 

Now I understand that liberals always have to have something to complain about and I agree that Columbus was not “indigenous” to America. The problem is that those FOUR Indians aren’t “indigenous” either. 

American Indians didn’t “originate” in America, which is the definition of “indigenous.” They just happened to get here a lot earlier. 

In fact, by all scientific accounts, they are Ruskies. Scientists have traced the American Indian origins to a region in southern Siberia named Altai. The region lies at the intersection of what are now Russia, Mongolia, China, and Kazakhstan. 

DNA studies have concluded that the peoples of this mountainous region trekked across the ice-covered Bering Strait between 13 and 14 thousand years ago. 

Dr. Theodore Schurr, from the University of Pennsylvania, has been researching this for years. Dr. Schurr's team checked Altai DNA samples for markers in mitochondrial DNA which is always passed on by mothers, and Y chromosome DNA which sons inherit from their fathers. 

Because of the large number of gene markers examined, the findings have a high degree of precision. In the Y chromosome DNA, the researchers found a unique mutation shared by Native Americans and people from southern Altai. 

Though it's possible that more than one wave of people crossed the Bering Strait land bridge; Schurr said that other researchers have not yet been able to identify another similar geographic focal point from which Native Americans can trace their heritage. 

So, if anything, these FOUR “Indigenize OU” students should be petitioning for recognition of a Russian holiday. And since there are no Russian holidays in October, I guess it’s back to class for you. 

Maybe you should study history. Your own!
