UPI and Columbus Day

The UPI saw fit to run a photograph of a statue of Christopher Columbus with a bird along with what appears to be bird feces on top of the statue head. This was done for a story on Columbus Day.

The accompanying story is entitled, “Not everyone thinks the U.S. should celebrate Columbus Day,” and proceeds to report on what now have become the usual criticisms of Columbus and America.

This generated no questions or outrage of significance.

However, around the same time, official outrage over the name, “Redskins,” of the Washington Redskins football team continued escalating, with WJLA reporting on October 14 that, “Redskins name controversy: Rep. Donna Edwards wants nickname outlawed.”

This shows the ability of the left to become outraged over previously non-controversial issues while conservatives—those claiming to align with and care about the history and founding of the nation—have little to no ability to generate outrage and thus change to what is sociologically acceptable.

Expect this trend to continue for the foreseeable future.
