Like most people in the world today, I grew up being indoctrinated to believe Christopher Columbus was a hero that discovered America, nothing could be further from the Truth.

Not only did Christopher Columbus not discover the Americas — since it was already inhabited and he was actually in search of India and therefore lost — but he was what could justifiably be called a psychopath, since he oversaw mass murders, tortures and rapes carried out under his watch. In fact, he helped facilitate what is arguably the greatest genocide in known human history.
The world might have never known about what really took place here, had it not been for the investigative journalism of a priest named Bartolomé de las Casas, who in the beginning supported Christopher Columbus until he became aware of the atrocities being committed. He wrote A Short Account of the Destruction of the Indies, which documented some of the most disturbing crimes against humanity in history.
In his writing, de las Casas documents how the invading colonizers brutally murdered babies, burnt innocent civilians alive, cut off the hands of workers who did not meet their quota for mining precious resources, and tortured, raped, and trafficked women, amongst other things that invariably document an indefensible genocide which has gotten far too little attention in the history books.
Although most people would argue that the Native population were savages, and backwards, Christopher Columbus’ journal clearly refutes these claims, where he himself noted how remarkably kind and giving they were, how they shared everything they had, and how they had no weapons and were timid.
Amongst his own documentation of his crimes against the native population, he also documents — in his own writing — that they took child sex slaves for themselves, noting that “those from 9 to 10 are now in demand.”
Never About Spreading Religion, It Was Always About Profit And Greed
Although the common person would blame religion — as if it has a mind of its own — for these grave crimes against humanity, they were actually originally inspired by profit and greed. Historically, this has almost always been the case, with public justification being that the authorities are spreading Christianity, or the more modern propaganda of spreading democracy.
You see, Columbus was sponsored by the crown of Castile, in hopes of finding a land rich in natural resources and minerals. And when he returned with news that supported their hopes, including slave labor to be exploited, and a people that could easily be conquered, they proceeded forward with their plan.
Through inner circle politics, the Spanish elitists then contacted Pope Alexander VI (from the rich and reputedly corrupt Borgio family) and had him give a public declaration “in the name of God” that stated they had rights to take their land there, and justify an invasion and enslavement of the locals (through the use of politically persuasive language of course) by making it seem like they were on a mission to help create a better world and fight evil.
In fact, Columbus documented in his own journal that, “should I meet with gold or spices in great quantity, I shall remain till I collect as much as possible, and for this purpose I am proceeding solely in quest of them.” In short, it was never truly about spreading religion, that was more of a cover story, it was always about profit and greed.
This might seem foolish and naive for people to believe by today’s standards, but the same thing still goes on to this very day, except the Pope has been largely replaced by the TV and mass media. In other words, the public gets deceived into supporting these crimes through the use of clever propaganda by the ruling class and their cronies, on the grounds of believing it to be a humanitarian campaign. But it’s not about religion, it’s about a cancerous so called elite exploiting the vulnerabilities of human nature.
This is an important distinction to make — that a small minority are the true root cause of the problem — because far too often in relation to history, those who are not well researched will blame the crimes of the very few on the many (an entire skin color, religion, country, political party, etc.) without considering the proper context of what really took place. Furthermore, those who have been indoctrinated to associate their sense of self with their flag, skin color, religion, or other social construct, will often fall into the trap of becoming defensive of these crimes, feeling themselves to be under attack. This essentially amounts to clever politics and psychological warfare on part of the high level ruling class, because what this invariably does is create division amongst the very people that need to unite in order to intelligently deal with the true root cause of the problem.
Change Is Taking Place But Not The Most Important Changes
The good news is, more and more people have become aware that Christopher Columbus was no hero, but a criminal of the highest order, and have actually helped change the traditional holiday of Columbus Day, to Indigenous People’s Day.
Although this is undoubtedly a victory, the overwhelming majority still remain largely unaware of how the ruling class continue to exploit the vulnerabilities of human nature. They do this by manipulating our perception of who our real enemy is, in an effort to justify their selfish insatiable greed of invading foreign lands, and exploiting both domestic and foreign people across the globe, amongst other things.
If you are interested to learn more about the crimes committed against the Native American people, and the true history of Christopher Columbus’ “discovery,” you can watch an award Winning Documentary on what really took place called The Canary Effect below;
All school children have memorized the old rhyme “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue” in order to help them remember the date and the name of the explorer who “found” America.
But new evidence, including a map, indicates that there may need to be a different date and a different name.
The incredible discovery of 14 documents kept in the trunk of an Italian immigrant who settled in San Jose, California, may change history. In particular, the map found among the documents could be an incredibly stunning find. Crudely drawn on sheepskin, the map depicts what appears to be the Bering Straight, Alaska, the Aleutian Islands and the west coast of North America — specifically, Washington state.
The map also indicates that it was Marco Polo, not Christopher Columbus, who made the voyage, and that it happened in the 1200s.
The documents recount how Polo met a Syrian trader on the Kamchatka Peninsula, located on the far eastern edge of the Asian continent. The trader told Polo of a land that was a 40-day voyage east from the peninsula. According to The Smithsonian, the map and documents consist of “hitherto untold encounters with a Syrian navigator, a band of lance-toting women in ermine pelts and people on a peninsula ‘twice as far from China’ who wear sealskin, live on fish and make their houses ‘under the earth.'”
The documents claim then that Polo crossed the Bering Sea and headed straight to North America, and the map seems to be visual support of that claim. It seems as though Polo sailed around the Alaskan coast, the Aleutian Islands, then headed east to British Columbia before heading down the Canadian coast, eventually reaching Washington state.
As The Smithsonian says of Polo, “For a guy who claimed to spend 17 years in China as a confidant of Kublai Khan, Marco Polo left a surprisingly skimpy paper trail. No Asian sources mention the footloose Italian. The only record of his 13th-century odyssey through the Far East is the hot air of his own ‘Travels,’ which was actually an ‘as told to’ penned by a writer of romances.” And there has always been something noticeably missing from what Polo did pen downs — maps. He never drew any maps of any of his travels.
But if the map and other documents are genuine, it wasn’t Marco Polo who drew the map and made the claims, but rather his three daughters — Bellala being the most prolific, but her sisters’ signatures show up on some documents, as well. If authentic, the map and documents would indeed change history. The map shows, after all, that Polo recorded the Alaskan coast, as well as the Bering Strait, four centuries before Vitus Bering, and that Polo was aware of the New World’s existence some two centuries before Columbus set sail.
The map and other documents’ authenticity have not yet been established, but Benjamin B. Olshin, a historian of cartography and professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, says there have been some “tantalizing” finds. The parchments bear inscriptions, he explained, some cryptic, in several languages: Italian, Latin, Arabic and Chinese. Olshin is the first scholar to translate and decode the maps, and one of the most exciting finds, he says, are allusions to “Fusang,” which is an obscure fifth-century Chinese expression that translates as “land across the ocean.” Some scholars contend that “Fusang” alludes to North America.
“Map with Ship,” as the map is being referred to, along with the other documents, were first discovered in the 1930s, but this is the first time they have been studied in-depth.
