Kamala Harris Criticizes ‘European Explorers’ Who ‘Ushered Wave of Destruction’


Vice President Kamala Harris issued a scathing rebuke of “European Explorers” this week when she said historical figures like Christopher Columbus “ushered a wave of devastation” across the Western Hemisphere.

“Since 1934, every October the United States has recognized the voyage of the European explorers who first landed on the shores of the Americas,” she said during an Oct. 12 speech at the National Congress of American Indians’ 78th Annual Convention. “But that is not the whole story. That has never been the whole story.”

“Those explorers ushered in a wave of devastation for tribal nations — perpetrating violence, stealing land, and spreading disease,” the Vice President said. “We must not shy away from this shameful past, and we must shed light on it and do everything we can to address the impact of the past on native communities today.”

“Native Americans are more likely to live in poverty, to be unemployed, and often struggle to get quality health care and to find affordable housing,” she told the oldest and largest U.S. organization for native peoples.

“This persistent inequity, this persistent injustice, is not right. And the pandemic has only made it worse,” Harris added. “I believe strongly that we now have a chance to change things, to improve things — to be better.”

    How many billions will this bitch be demanding to stem the massive waves of wooden sailing ships and conquistadors that the oppressive, colonial white European nobility are sending towards the American continent these days? Talk about timely

    A psychopath wagging her morally superior finger in the face of people who have been dead for in many cases five centuries now. Makes sense.

  3. MTRafter says:

    This is fine. They are all dead and it is irrelevant.

    She should hire some actors to follow her around. Their only job will be nodding and smiling and the occasional pat on her head when she cackles.

    Typical leftist: Has to project onto people who can’t defend themselves, in this case long-dead people, to hide her own insecurities about being a WORTHLESS PIECE OF HUMAN GARBAGE.

    Well then, I’ll be VP and you can go back to hell where you came from. Worst argument ever, for all she knows Indians attacked the settlers first. We really wouldn’t know for sure who started the aggression. Roanoke anyone? Also how are European settlers seeking religious asylum, and seeking asylum from economic conditions any different than the millions of people we’ve let in over the years, that she encourages we let in, any different than European settlers? O that’s right they didn’t get handouts like the the newer “settlers”. Irish fleeing the potato famine? Europeans fleeing fascism and communism in the early 1900s? Nope apparently that’s all the same thing as Christopher Columbus, what a racist way of thinking. It’s inconceivable to me that our leaders would trash our founding history. Indians had slaves for Christ sake, captured tribes, the women of captured tribes, cannibal tribes, South America tribes cutting heads off by the hundreds, but the worst guy of all was Christopher Columbus, GIVE ME A BREAK, utter nonsense. The past is past, quit digging it up for your Marxist agenda, the only thing we can change is our future, not our past, so quit bitching about it. Rant done.

      I have a close friend that I had to remind of a great fact that often gets lost. It wasn’t just Europeans who were brutal back in the day. It was all people. The Aztecs for instance demanded tribute from towns they conquered. Any one “city” not paying taxes on tax day got visited by the main army and the whole town was destroyed and all the people slaughtered. Their heads would be prominently displayed in the capitol or become part of their skull pyramids as “inspiration” for paying taxes of course.

      Europeans were no better or worse than anyone else. They just had better war tech from years of different groups of people fighting each other. The competition set off an arms race where people were trying to figure more efficient weapons. To top it off, most of the European cultures that existed then had strong naval traditions particularly in trade and combat. Once the civilizations began to stabilize since war was a serious strain of manpower and resource, things like philosophy and science and art could be more developed.

    Obviously he has no clue how “explorers” used to explore…She needs to watch “Vikings” or some other similar movie. Concurring new lands was never without victims back in the days..that was the way of life then

  8. Phantomcode says:

    She has no leg to stand on. She is such an evil bitch

  9. itchy says:

    This will surely do wonders for her approval rating that is tanking as bad as Biden’s, the guy collapsing the country as fast as he can……and she’s not even doing anything
