Notre Dame moves to cover up ‘demeaning’ Christopher Columbus mural


 

The latest group to be targeted now are Catholics. We got a good taste of it this weekend at the Pro Life Rally. There can be little doubt the kids attending were targeted. Heap big Indian drummer man steps up to a Covington school kids and baits them. But you know the story no need to repeat.

Now on to MLK day. Let’s keep it going with this story line. All whites very bad bringing Western Civilization to the American continent. Worse, even Catholics participated in the deed.

The aspect that should be most distressing is this is Notre Dame, The President shaming the very foundation’s religion.

 

The president of the University of Notre Dame announced Sunday that it would cover up murals of Christopher Columbus.

 

Portrait of Christopher Columbus

 

The president of the University of Notre Dame sent an email to all students Sunday night, informing them of the school’s decision to cover up an on-campus mural of Christopher Columbus.

President John Jenkins wrote “as we prepare to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day…at Notre Dame, I write to let you know of a recent decision,” in an email obtained by Campus Reform. “The murals by Luigi Gregori that adorn the ceremonial entrance to Notre Dame’s Main Building depict the life and exploration of Christopher Columbus.”

 

 

 

Jenkins continued by saying that the mural, which dates back to 1882-1884, was originally intended as a response to the school’s mostly Catholic immigrant population. Columbus, it is believed, was also Catholic. 

“In recent years, however, many have come to see the murals as at best blind to the consequences of Columbus’ voyage for the indigenous peoples who inhabited this ‘new’ world and at worst demeaning toward them,” Jenkins wrote.

Jenkins added that the arrival of Columbus to the “new world” was a “catastrophe” for native Americans. He added, “whatever else Columbus’ arrival brought, for these peoples it led to exploitation, expropriation of land, repression of vibrant cultures, enslavement, and new diseases causing epidemics that killed millions.”

But, Jenkins continued, the historic pieces painted on the plaster of the walls, were “not intended to slight indigenous peoples, but to encourage another marginalized group.”

“Gregori’s murals focused on the popular image of Columbus as an American hero, who was also an immigrant and a devout Catholic. The message to the Notre Dame community was that they too, though largely immigrant and Catholics, could be fully and proudly American,” he wrote.

Let us just keep this in mind:

As far as Covington?

    Sorry, I got a little off-track there. I disagree with all of this revisionist history and now more than ever am compiling history books for my grandchildren to study and for future reference should the evil that threatens to wipe out the Republic succeeds. They, their children, grandchildren and so on must be made aware of the truth even if it means learning under the cover of darkness in candlelight which is where we’ll end up if the likes Hussein Obama, ACO and her Muslim peers in Congress are successful.

    They just keep on coming and coming and they are so persistent that eventually they get what they want. They want to destroy anything “American” and that is why they hate MAGA so much. They are not going to stop until we push back but sadly they seem to be winning.

    Maybe they covered because every time I’ve seen the picture of C. C. it makes me think of Frog Millhouse. 🙂

    ….fundamentally change America. Have you visited an inner city PUBLIC SCHOOL lately? The classrooms and offices are adorned with pictures of MLK, Jesse “I’ve got a scheme” Jackson, Al “Bobblehead” Sharpton and Barry Obama….and here in NJ soon to be accompanied by Cory “I’m kinda out of the closet” Booker. Not to worry though, the political party of FDR that destroyed the black family, institutionalized the high rise ghetto and made cradle to casket government dependency an art form will always make room on the plantation for every third world race, creed and color in order to obliterate the once American culture and social fabric. There is no place in the new New World for white racists like Columbus.

      I for one tire of the Noble Savage… they raped pillaged each other, made slaves, sold slaves and continued to live they way they did for centuries without moving forward.
      Their penchant for taking scalps and skinning people alive held a special fascination for most.

        Let’s give credit where credit is due. The Noble Savages were also an entrepreneurial lot in that they learned scalping from the British during the French and Indian War. They were paid for every French they killed and the scalp was the proof of the kill. If only they could have learned to lay off the fire water.

        Indeed, they did Bunkerville. I recall a conversation that I had with my grandson when he was in fifth grade. Having just learned about slavery after which he had a discussion with his grandmother on his mother’s side, he recounted the “white people put us in slavery” line.

        I listened because I wanted to hear how far back he went. I don’t have to tell you how far back he went, or rather did not go which is where I picked it up, cleaning up the lies, omissions, etc. – all the way back to the Saudis coming to Africa and how African tribes engaged in war against each other, raped, pillaged, slaughtered and enslaved other Africans centuries before the arrival of Europeans or anyone else for that matter on Africa’s shores.

        My grandson was shocked and quite curious as to why this part of history is not being taught. A few days after he got home I received a phone call from his grandmother, a Jamaican woman whom I can tell you was not at all pleased but I expected her call and immediately launched into a history lesson.

        Jadah’s response: “I know, I know, Denise but you know white people, heh, heh….” I interrupted her, “Jadah, I know the way that the story is being told but THE FACTS, Jadah, THE FACTS. No one forced Africans to kill, murder, maim, enslave and sell other Africans off during the Triangle Trade, before and after. In fact, slavery exists today in Africa, the Middle East and Asia but no one will discuss it.” (Not even Jadah)

        End of conversation with Jadah. She hasn’t talked to me much since. However, my grandchildren are being drowned with this stuff in NYC public schools and the schools are not happy that they are not buying much of it or the social justice b.s. they’re trying to shove down their throats. This much I know from the phone calls coming home to the parents who are not quite favorites of the school faculty. Thank goodness, they’re keeping Jadah out of it.

        Sorry for the rant.

      An excellent rant indeed with truth that no one wants to talk about. Slavery is going on now as it has since the beginning of time.
      The bottom line is I didn’t cause it, support it, and I am not going to bear any guilt for the sins of those who went before me.
      Your point that the Africans played a major role in rounding up people for the white slavers is something you won’t read about in the history books these days.
      Bless you for educating you Grandson,
