Historians have begun to tear down the Columbus myths, for example: #1: That he discovered America. #2: That he proved the world wasn't flat. (That had been well-known for more than a millennium in Columbus time. In fact, scholars had a good idea of what the circumference of the Earth was, which was part of the dissent against Columbus.) #3: That he came to America in the name of exploration. And, #4: that he came in peace.
Quite simply, most of these "so-called facts" are unequivocally false and half-truths. Columbus sailed the ocean blue to look for wealth and, officially, in the name of Christianity.
What he did, was murder, enslave and rape the natives he met, sold girls (as young as nine by his own account) into prostitution, and committed numerous acts so heinous that the American Indian women started killing their own children and committing suicide to avoid the torture.
Christopher Columbus was brutal, even by the standards of his age, leading Bartolome de las Casas (who accompanied Columbus on one of his voyages) to write in his The Destruction of the Indies, "Such inhumanities and barbarisms were committed in my sight as no age can parallel... My eyes have seen these acts so foreign to human nature that even now I tremble as I write."
The Short Video Above goes into detail about how Christopher Columbus started the American Indian Genocide in the name of religion and how the United States has and still is continuing his legacy even today!
