The guidelines say teaching from a school will have students become familiar with the classroom and help ease the transition to in person. Instruction will allow teachers to use instructional materials, they may not have a home.

Interview With Ben Shapiro, Author Of How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
"With US co founder Of the daily wire. Ah, host of the Ben Shapiro Show number one New York Times bestseller. His latest book is How to Destroy American Three Easy Steps. Ben. He wrote this book. And we're in the middle of this. We seem to be dead Set on destroying America. Did you give everyone a blueprints or something? I am glad that I cannot take responsibility for it. I did not give them will bring. But I won't say that. When I wrote the book in the summer January, I figured out the relevant I didn't think you'd be quite literally been quite this quickly, like all the all the syndrome that I was talking about taking the country broke out into the open at once. So, you know, forget about the gun violence. What? You talked about the civil unrest in Philadelphia in Oakland in Portland in Seattle in New York City in Austin in Albuquerque. And And in Kansas City. What's going on here? I mean, what we're watching right now is a variety of movements, all pretending, t be about civil rights and moving the country better and then all immediately about making the country worse, But they're really about Castigating America as uniquely horrible castigating America systems as repositories of privilege and evil and saying that those systems need to be torn down. Whether you're talking about black lives matter. Rioters in Los Angeles or New York or Washington, DC, or the top men and rioters in Portland or in Seattle. We're watching in the end is sort of a lion's that says that the United States is bad. It's just that the bleeding spear of an ideology That that claims that the United States of systems are unworthy of continuing and need to be tor now out at the root, and there's a reason that Nicole Hannah Jones is very proud, she said. This on Twitter that did it that count 16 19 project and tackle editor of The New York Times. At this point, she said, on Twitter that she was happy. The people were suggesting that what happened in New York and L. A in Washington, D, C and all over the country that was 16 19 riots, meaning that her perspective on the United States namely that it was rooted in evil. And it's inseparable from that evil. That perspective had taken such hold. Now let me ask you Does that come up in the interview? Hi. How you doing? Tell me about your background. You seem to be a good writer and your view of America. It's terrible needs to be disassembled. And what based on slavery? I think you're the perfect person. We have a column. Feed it right. And we have a news division for you to lead so to prove bench appeal. You're right. I'm looking at, uh Ted Lin Seth. He is somebody who is A, uh, African American activist. He said Oregon is white is hell. Uh, he said that He warned that the black guys, Ah matter movement in the city is being co opted by quote privileged white people with their own agenda. It is not our agenda and double a C P is saying the same thing. Why are you telling us what we need again? If it is a white black thing? Why we, depending why are white people taking the lead is not the ultimate insult, telling black people What they need for justice. Late is pretty incredible. But even it goes back to this view of racism that is actually pushed by people like you bring Candy and Robert Angelo and Kenny, Of course, the author of how to Be a racist and from the Beginning and Financial of the author of My Fragility, their View of the United States that the United States is on only racist, But the racism is embedded in all of its systems. And so the way to you identify raising them. Is not how we used to identify racism used to be. You could pretty easily tell who's the racist who ever thought that there was inferiority or superiority based on racial race, right? That was the definition of racist well, Now they changed the definition. They say Any system that create any sort of racial inequality or results in any sort of racial inequality is a racist system. And if you don't want to tear down the system You are racist. Not only that, if you're a white person, you bear all responsibility for this so nobly bears responsibility for the success of white privilege to have lived under and propagated this particular system. What That doesn't mean that white people are still in charge. And the white people are the are the people who have you know, in the sort of old Runyon Kipling phrase that the white man burden to fix the entire system. And so what That means that the views of people of color actually don't matter. The only ones that actually matter are the views of people like Robin D'Angelo was going to cure the country of Whiteness and hat and take on the past in of the United States, So that's why you see these bizarre videos of these white protesters lecture and black ops about what America needs on racism. But I also find her standing, too, is the place they're just overrun with gun violence. And that, of course, is Chicago with great Rahm Emanuel rained and left with his tail between his legs but came out with his chest high with his with his chin in the air in his chest pumped out as if he was a great victor. So because the president did states actually did what he said he was going to use his Listen. I'm gonna send some federal help in there. To not to handle protesters on the Christopher Columbus statue. No, but to find out about these guys. Gangs there were running rampant and the sub gangs that are killing each other. They're shooting each other at funerals at funerals. And here's the mayor. Who blames it on who blames this whole thing on the president's and his willingness to cab federal help cut seven I've drawn a very hardline will not allow federal troops in our city. We will not tolerate unnamed agents, taking people off the street, violating their rights and holding them in custody. That's not happening here in Chicago, so I've drawn a very, very bright line. I've made that very clear to every federal authority that I have spoken with. And they understand that if they cross that line We will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city. So this woman who should be begging for help with 117,000 gang members, 55 known gangs 747 factions, and they say there are 2500 subsets of those major gangs. You think this won't be begging for help? Instead, she's drawing the line and went through. When push comes to shove, she'll take down Columbus a statue. What planet are we on, Ben? We're on a planet where one of the one of the tactics But that's being used by mayors across the country who are on the left is something that unauthorized infront Eagle, who would the counter of City Institute hey called the riot ideology. The basic idea here back in the 19 sixties, and that was the riots or sometimes useful because politicians will use them as a way to club the citizenry into essentially giving the rioters what they want. So Marion Barry technically did this in Washington, DC He wouldn't work with people outside the governments who are protesting, but actually, we're in Aged in violence, and then he would basically say that the taxpayer to do all these people will stop here to the five things you need to do this something John Lindsay in New York City during the 19 sixties. He basically said the way that we can help alleviate the underlying problems here and do all the things we want you to do. Well, if you're a leftist politicians, you have two possible sort of solutions here. One is that you surrender to the protesters simply because You are afraid that they are more work than you are. And that you're going to be castigated is insufficiently weapons. And at the same time you can go to the citizenry consideration. We can alleviate all these problems. All you have to do these things. I want you to know you're starting to see hints of this nationally. By the way, you're starting to see writers say things like, you know, it's awful. This is Trump resign tonight. You're saying that part out loud, Which is it? This whole thing is about you wanting what you want, and you're only going to stop this democratic elected So essentially, you're threatening the law abiding citizens of the United States. You're going to continue violating law and wrecking major cities and shutting down major cities in six PM and curfews unless you get what you want. Well, that's never believe him. Ocracy is operated and no democracy can operate under those conditions. So, Ben, do you get the sense in looking at your book? There are reasonable people in the middle that understand when a mayor Lightfoot says things the way they do way, understand that these liberal mayor's saying, this is going to be the summer of love in Portland and then see the ransacking of a city like we're seeing, and now we see it re re igniting in Seattle. So when do you get the sense that there's a majority of Americans who who don't care about the politics but a logical enough to see the problem? So I think that most Americans, definitely the problem. I think the biggest problem right now is that the media is such an incredible job of making intimate. Everybody's focusing on President Trump that they've ignored the real problems that are played in the country right now, and they're downplaying it purposefully in order to convince Americans that none of this is happening, how you get that, during that quote, where, he says there's no such thing as in chief of violence. And the only way that you could do that number one of your delusional but number two. If you really think that you could get away with that, and the media decided point again, which they have been playing, So do I think that the vast majority of Americans are happy to go along with us. No, I think the best majority Americans know that this is nonsense. But I think that the polarization around the election is so effective and so effective around President Trump. This is the media have basically been able to make this a referendum on Trump as opposed to a referendum on violence. And this is why it's very important to President Trump be incredibly focused last 100 days of this campaign he really needs Prevent the media from using distraction in order to avoid the logical conclusion here, which is that if you actually want this stuff to stop and not paid to rioters and looters and protesters, then what you actually need is somebody who is going to affect you wait longer. The president needs to make that message inescapable until you can offer the sort of distraction that maybe sometimes I wonder if you know one thing I have to say he's been pretty discipline. I thought he had a very good week last week. He definitely saw the change in messaging, and I do think 99 days in this In this world we're in is a lifetime. I agree. I agree. I think last week was much much better, and we just need to see that we just need to see them and we don't want this to become you know that that image from the Simpson nations work actually read that back to zero. Instead. What we just want is consistent level of solidity coming from the White House looking people have been, I think, begging for this from the beginning because President Trump's policies are actually quite popular. And when President Trump 16 script that he is quite popular, the problem is that he hasn't so if he can actually being here's the discouraging part. He's down in the polls. The encouragement He performed about badly de cluttering will have three months and just not not in terms of policy. But in terms of stuff he's been saying would mean that this is a low water mark, and you're going to see him rise in the polls are gonna start to see things tighten up a little bit at the very least before the election, and if he's disciplined, and if he can point to this he really has to do is point you say well, what Democrats are supporting worst. Joe Biden condemning these riots. Worthy. He's hiding in the basement. Where is it? You want to do an interview? Chris Wallace, it Trump can do that and be consistent about it. Then I think this election's been tied up with her. But I just think that we're not looking at Barack Obama had 5 48 years old with his his eloquent speech and promises that he couldn't fulfill. But you say Well, pretty talented guy, Bill Clinton. He had all his personal problems. But man, can he speak, and he certainly was comfortable on a myriad of issues. No one doubted his intellect. But when you look at Joe Biden, he's the worst candidate that I have seen in my lifetime. And if President Trump can close the gap and force him to actually campaign That would actually be an exponential gain for him. I mean, no question. I mean, Joe Biden is an extraordinarily we candidate who's being benefited by two particular circumstances. One Kobe has made it so he doesn't have to go out and campaign is actually benefiting him tremendously. He just gets to stay home and talk to friendly's basically was really nice for him. He doesn't have to demonstrate any level of potential energy. It all on number two is the fact that he's campaigning. As I said before, essentially the dead person. He's basically what you're saying. I am. A tree stump. And you don't like trump to vote for the tree stump. And so that makes it really a referendum on Trump, which means that this is very much about hands from shift the burden of proof back to buy as opposed to letting it sit on his own shoulders. So then, Lastly, you write the book how to destroy America in three easy steps. I felt as though I am well the book by just reading the news. Unfortunately, if the word destroyed does work, and it is getting, I think it's beginning TTO unnerve our allies. What's happening in our country right now. What is the element that we could see around the bend that would make you believe that we are on that path that we have not discussed yet? I think that the one thing that they would allow us to recover here is a renewed sense of what America's history is all about What the book really does juxtaposed to stations in the country. One is what I thought it's not really left right. So much of it is unions versus disintegration is Do we even want to be a country anymore? If we do we have to have a shared philosophy rooted in the declaration of Independence have assured culture rooted Masonic institutions like churches. And school that values entrepreneurship adventure that values taking care of neighbor. And then if we and we all have a shared history, we have to have a belief that the United States actually an incredibly glorious place. That glorious place ought to be of help. If we don't have those things were gonna fall apart. I think that can be re invoke ated. You've seen Antifa. I mean, they don't. They don't seem to like you. They seem to show up with some of your speeches. Are you seeing their imprint on, especially over in Oregon in Seattle? Hundreds. I mean, you can see all the hall marks mean There's certain things you just look for visually raising both flags. You see the You see the red flags You see people who are dressed, own blast at the bicycle helmet and the goggles. You know this is it's perfectly obvious to everybody that he was deeply involved in very active in Portland for years reporter and you know, it has pointed out another action in Seattle as well. Look at what you're going to see right now. And this is the most predictable effect is a mass, a mass evacuation of major setting two years to see everybody who can afford to leave these nature city. But his major said, because who wants to live there? I want to pay inordinate taxes in order. Get shut down in 68 every night watcher business burnout. It doesn't come in a party today. I think figure I never sent right as a broadcast from New York City virtually alone. There is nobody here, Uh, Bank. Congratulations on the book. How to destroy American. Three Easy steps, continue to get the word out and continue not to take a step backwards. Thanks. Appreciate it.

Um, and they should be held accountable and discovery is always your friends and a lot of people who have things to hide. Don't like discovery. But you know to me. It sounds like a conspiracy.

Rashad Richey on Trump, Christopher Columbus, and gang culture in Chicago
"And observe. Do you not find it ironic that Republicans rejected healthcare from President Barack Obama? But they embraced covert 19 from Donald Trump. You got to really think about this. They rejected. Health care. From Obama. But Embrace Cove at 19. From Trump. Here's something else. That's hell. Ironic. If you are told You must wear a mask during a public safety. Crisis. May the Republicans would tell you that is a violation of their freedom. The government cannot tell me what to do with my body. The government cannot tell me what to put on my body. I love not to cry because these are the same individuals who would tell you that the government has a right to tell women exactly what to do with their body. These are the same people saying it is unconstitutional to wear a mask but constitutional to tell a woman biologically what to do with her entire body. No, I'm not debating where you're at ethically on the abortion narrative. You got to find that the irony here. On the constitutional and legal marriage. 40 2 to 7. 03 big ups to to Mayor Lightfoot. I like Mayor Lightfoot not know She hasn't challenges too. Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago. Removed a statue of Christopher Columbus. Inside of their grant park community in the middle of the night. I mean, they moved and they put it In a covering and they ripped it up. Mayor Lightfoot order this statue to be removed. From the park overnight to avoid what she called any high profile confrontation. And you know who's complaining. Italian Americans. Italian American leaders in Chicago are not on board with this decision. Yeah. They upset because Okay. I'm trying to understand. Why are they upset Because the guy was Italian. Is that why they are upset If anyone can give me more insight into this because We know Christopher Columbus did not discover a damn thing. How can you discover something? That other people have discovered. That other people have actually. Already being how could you discover it? But it shows you the power. Of white colonizers of then and now. Then and now because history books steel kind of, say Christopher Columbus discovered America We were all taught this mess in Public K through 12 education. Many of us were taught the narrative that Christopher Columbus discovered America. In history books today that question is still there and I read a history book not too long ago. One of the K through 12 history books, and it said. Did. Christopher Columbus Discover America? And the answer literally in the history books, said kind off and provided an explanation. How did he did he kind of discover America that's like being almost pregnant. Let's go to Todd in Cleveland, Todd Good day. Welcome. He could have discovered it for him. That means everybody discovers something the end I can discover a country I know. I know. The whole thing is once the propaganda, but he discovered it for him anyway. But that's not the credit he's given. He's given the created discovering it to the free world. The free world. The Free World Rye. Okay, Anyway, I'm okay with that being moved here. Here's what I called about. But you got my attention when you brought up your life. 2150 shootings in Chicago already this year as of two days ago, I'm sure somebody caught it yesterday by the way. And big chunk. Those shootings over and one cop trading area which is about maybe Maybe three square miles of the city. She is in our best interest to be open to the possibility of federal federal government helping out they don't need to be coming in like storm troopers what they could They definitely need some help. Because the issue contrary to what Trump says is not, um, law and order, you know, getting it on crime, a crime prevention, and that's what Chicago has the probable crime prevention more so than actual crime. They were more if there were more entrenched in the neighborhood to help get better understanding of what's going on prevent crime. Then you know what they would be having to come down on criminals because they were prevented him beforehand. She doesn't appear to be open to that. Let me give a little more insight and I agree with you. That's definitely part of the problem. I've been to Chicago. I'm aware it actually negotiating. Gang treaties right and understanding the culture of Chicago, especially especially in some of these areas with the higher violence ratios. Here's what's really happening. Police officers in those districts. They're real job is to keep South Chicago. Separate From the rest of Chicago. And they're policing tactics. Do not solve homicide. You know where Chicago is Known for more so than the shootings in side of law enforcement. They also have the worst murder. Solve rate. In America for any urban city. They're not solving crimes. They're not holding these killers accountable. To the Criminal Act. Now, a lot of speculation as to why some say is because they are not interested in truly policing that community. They're not interested. And getting involved in an investigative process. Some say connected to corruption, right. But the bottom line is this. You can't avoid the reality that all of these shootings continued a happen. And somehow not even mention that their law enforcement agency is one of the most negligent agencies as it relates to solving homicides. Number two Before May Lightfoot you had are on manual who was a ridiculous mayor. I don't care that he was a Democrat. He was a ridiculous individual. He gets in, and he actually closes down all of these schools, thes public schools emerges them without a comprehensive plan. No understanding of gang culture in Chicago. And when he did this, he forced Vice Lords and GS to go to school together. Well, they decided not to many of them simply dropped out. And became expressions off their social economic environment doing many, many in his administration actually admitted that was a huge mistake when they did that. Go ahead on.

"Directions. Yeah and said just give them directions as we do just drive in missed Columbus. Oh God so I was so so. This is where you're wondering how to critical even be Hotta. Christopher Columbus Day become a national holiday great question. Yeah Yeah so other fuck that this happens right. You're like this guy's an asshole who is like this guy's lack of all right and he never landed in America. So why was he giving the National Holiday Funny. You should ask so in eighteen. Twenty eight this author. You May Washington Irving Washington. Ervin wrote the Leslie Be Hollow. Rip Van Winkle Ernie penned. A book called a history of the life and voyages of Christopher Columbus and in that he imbalance because he's just trying to tell a story and so he embellished on ideas about Christopher Columbus he gloss over the less than sleeve reports and the work gave rise to a number of other stories of Christopher Columbus. That started coming out accomplishments so again a legend was born so we gloss over all the other terrible things and just. It's is this heightened sort of figure this super heroic figure that is a myth essentially and it's kind of similar to how Christmas like the traditions of Christmas. This came about pretty much that we talked before to most of the traditions that we have surrounding Christmas actually came from the Charles Dickens novel about tiny Tim a Christmas the story. No that's the one where he shoots his eye out a Christmas Carol. Because there weren't really traditions around in that. Were I done by the masses and it was pretty much most of the things that we get from how we celebrate. Christmas came from the Charles Dickens novels so interesting against me how were were of media okay. Power media power storytelling Even if it's fiction okay. We as storytellers have have a huge responsibility and a huge power and again this is why like we don't have our stories being told why there's just finally the first Harriet movie being done. We gotTA gotTa get into the reins and for one. We need to get access to build Taller fucking stories. Yeah and then we need to get in their support women and goes you angels. That's right okay. So that was the first thing you're like the second and about the eighteen. Hundreds though eighteen hundreds around the age of American immigration was In full swing. Chinese exclusionary act eighteen. Eighty to a Lotta. We're a lot of Americans are super fucked. took place at this point. There's a lot of people who are trying to come over here. But there's a lot of stigma and certain groups of people especially here in New York City against Italian Americans specifically and and Talion Americans and Irish Americans were like bottom of it was like Italian Irish and blacks at the bottom of the totem pole. After for us. Yeah it's only recently like how are like Italians and Irish now integrated more sort of like the white elite of America Erica. But it wasn't always the case. So Italian Americans were looking for a way to integrate themselves into the fabric of American societies. So I 'cause there's a lot ought of terrible sentiment in presidents prejudice against Italians during this time period does demonstrate their loyalty they and adopting that like. Hey No. We're Americans the then as soon as he began to run a campaign about Columbus as proof of. Hey look we helped career America. We actually the ones that found. This place are Italian. Argh our boy are as Chris Columbus. Yeah he was. He was Spanish. No he sailed for Manus. Honest telling us a Diane sailed for this manage because he was trying to refer Italy and they're like the fuck Outta here. You're crazy. Get the fuck Outta here. Get our face. Oh my go- scotus. Where like we WANNA ligo exploring? Go find more gold and we need a cheaper route to get over the Asia's so we can trae and be better than the British and I was like I'll go be an asshole to everybody that I find Ha. Aw so that's what happened and so this is interesting too because an eight thousand eighty two. So there's a huge campaign that was going and in fact they were able to newspapers. Progresso how would I say that in Italian Lance Oh does progresso what is to in Italian. Isn't it Yeah Progresso you me on there so this is why have you ever been. Here's a New York. In Columbus Circle is a giant fucking statue of this asshole. And I've always wondered. How did that happen? It's because of this movement that was happening in terms of these high. Hi and they were able to fund raise money to get a statue place at the southwest Corner Central Park and eventually the circle took on the name Columbus Circle. And that's how I was the grand circle O- originally it was the grand circle and then because the statue was there must become Columbus Circle. So I'd like to get another movement Mick going to get it back to the fucking grand. Yes fuck down and put into museum. I'm for nuts. Not Forget the history is happen but but put it in a museum. All these dodgers problematic. We don't we have a statue. It's like celebrating it or put it in like a memorial section of of a memorial of a robbery. Lease them all over in a certain area or whatnot but to be so erected displayed There should be maybe like. It's maybe it's indigenous circle we have more statues of digits. People who the the M- the Manhattan tried that we're fucking slaughtered to build fucking Manhattan baton. You know we can do something commemorating that so and then in nineteen thirty seven Columbus Day became a federal holiday. So that's how it happened. It's crazy this just happened our media how you can drive you know narratives and that's interesting too. It's like it's not like Christopher Columbus is like this holiday is the bedrock of this con- it wasn't founded in seventeen seventy six when the country was first founded like this happened within just the last century that it was made a holiday and we can change chains. That happens we we change things. Martin Luther King Day wasn't always a holiday. Folks work to credit sky. Worked to make that happen happen anyways. All this to say that it should. Christopher Columbus days should become indigenous. People Day that's right and he doesn't California. I think important tower. Yeah absolutely which absolutely makes sense it. Should we need to. We can still talk about Christopher Columbus and what happened but the full story should be revealed and also also it's a great way to pay tribute to again the genocide of indigenous people. Just give them a fucking day the least that we could possibly do. There's never gotten a full apology. There's no reparations for them I was fucking laying still yet so representative deb Haaland of New Mexico Mexico. She's one of the first. This is happening. I think in the two thousand eighteen election's she got voted into Congress. Her another woman for the first indigenous people ever elected to Congress which is insane. Yeah which is insane. They should have so much more. Say in what's happening in this country because they're already we're here so yes so what I'm saying. Why am I bringing this up? You're like James Communist already happened. Well Thanksgiving's also right around the corner which has a lot of the same things instead. What Christopher Columbus didn't what happened so I'm saying we have like a full year to really work on contacting your local state representatives? Your Congress Congress people and let them know that it needs to be indigenous peoples You can hashtag them. I would say follow Representative Deb Holland. Because she is Leading the charge and getting indigenous people day as a holiday also Samantha. B is doing is. There is a Christopher Columbus memorial in these shittiest bathroom in New York City. You can go and take a walk home. Forget what bar it is but there's a bar. That was voted voted the shittiest bathroom in New York City. And you can go there and take a photo and do Hashtag Crappy Columbus and tag your representative and let them know. I know that Christopher Columbus Day means to be indigenous people babe.

I don't like being called a snowflake and this isn't me being sought insensitive. This is me being like. Let's look at the real history because I've been taught some bullshit for history i. I'm thirty four years old. I'm finally like being awoken to lake. That's what really what was happening. 'cause who controls the narrative as we gotta look at so I was watching full-frontal with Samantha. B and they did a five minute segment about why Christopher Columbus wasn't astle and I was like this is great today. I must continue spreading this message so I did a little bit more digging of a at first when I was doing some digging I was looking. I just Google Y. Christopher for climate is an asshole all article popped out but then some other articles popped up that were in support of like why Christopher Columbus Day is really important and so trying trying to do my due diligence as a researcher in to do what you did with Breitbart News and look on the other side I try and I can kinda. I couldn't get got through the article. So maybe you all are better than me I. So yeah they were like will indigenous people were murdering people to you okay. You know what everyone's entitled to their opinion even if it's dumb so fun fact. Though only thirty four states actually been recognized Columbus Columbus Day as a legal holiday so some of you probably didn't even have the day off. I did not and I'm grateful that I didn't have the off. But here in New York they go balls to the wall for Columbus Day because they kind of transformer into Italian Heritage Day which will get into in a moment. They tried to has what they're reclaiming it. So we're GONNA. This is me side. I in Christopher Columbus giving him some major side I like but he wasn't that bad. I'm like okay okay. We'll hear some facts and you can decide you know if you think he was terrible person. I'm sure people who are like Charles. Manson probably had some great things about about himself to God was a murderer. That's right so so. Let's also refrain this. He didn't discover his shit. He arrived so you can't say when Christopher Columbus discovered America he arrived and he'd even arrive on fucking America he didn't arrive on America. God You didn't touch it didn't make it there. Do you want to feel free to say anything. I'm what he didn't touch it. I mean I know the whole again but he. He arrived at length on the Caribbean. I believe like Dominican Republic. Oh yeah so. He didn't arrive on. America is so again. Yeah even discover shit because people were already. There was the first white person to arrive. Live on that specific island in the Caribbean people already living there. Yeah so he used to take a quick little day trip and pop over to India and you know do awesome trading but completely like you know driven by greed and while he wasn't just some like adventurer. He was trying to make some money. Yeah also Oh yeah. So he like I said. He didn't land America's he somewhere that he was in the Caribbean enslaving my ancestors because he wasted no oh time it was like day wine Columbus took six natives into captivity and noted this in his journal noting that they would make excellent and servants got to work and slaving people. Christopher Columbus wasn't asshole awful so oh he also brought fun things smallpox and twenty two other new diseases He helped lead in the genocide of indigenous peoples. I forget we talked with us like months ago. But the amount of millions and millions and millions of indigenous people were it was a genocide. It was the first this genocide. Why don't we call it that? Don't call it that I do. I guess it is a genetic million million something about ninety percent while he's like ninety. Five percent of the population was wiped out. Ninety five percent of population was wiped out because some people's came over and they they were leg the other things that Christopher Columbus used to you. Maybe you're still not convent's wow he paraded dismembered bodies through the streets. Excuse me he. Traffic Women's Children's traffic women and children. He had beheading contests. He still children from their mothers all. Yes and so. This was in what today is known as the Dominican Republic and the treatment of the people were so cruel that Europeans were like. This is not okay. Hey and I thought he had gone too. Far and settlers petitioned the Spanish courts I've Columbus removed and the petition was finally granted in fifteen hundred hundred but of course like the damage like he was there for good eight years wreaking havoc and destroying heading contests. Because he didn't see them as people he was an asshole again. Christopher Columbus was announced Dick so the Spanish government run back and chains and when the king and the Queen of Spain found so now he was treating the natives these stripped him of his nobility and he spent six weeks in jail so at least there was some justice. Better than like in this. And you know what's Nice is like. Ah She was very much like a trump like he was like touting that he could do all these things and he was really like this rich guy and he Separated children from their mothers. Are we still here. Yeah interesting fact to he also was an addict so he was addicted to opium. Opium does not excuse behavior but essentially he was basically a heroin addict. So there's that oh he also used to chop off the hands of people who would disobey. Oh Wow why does this guy get a day. Oh how I mean. That's I mean this is another like that's that's why okay and actually Leif Eriksson. who was a Viking came to the Americas probably about four hundred centuries prior to that and then even before that there are speculations and records? We talked about on this podcast before about Queen Khalifa. Who is believed that she was African? Queen had was either already here in the Americas and the people that Africans were actually already sailing to America or to the newlands of America Which is why a lot of times James Black folks would actually be the ones helping to navigate what Europeans on how to get there because I already been there that there is a history of black holes? There's no doubt organs are so dove. I'm pretty sure they're already selling over here and like with no wanting I think in return like you just just give people all.
