“On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, we pay respect to Tribal Nations and indigenous history,” she wrote on social media. “Today and every day, let us continue to celebrate and uplift the rich contributions of Indigenous peoples — their leadership has made our country stronger.”
She posted nothing on social media about Columbus Day, of course, because the Left scorns the holiday as racist.
Kamala’s partner-in-crime Joe Biden straddled the fence by proclaiming Monday to be both Columbus Day and Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
“For centuries, Indigenous Peoples were forcibly removed from ancestral lands, displaced, assimilated, and banned from worshiping or performing many sacred ceremonies,” Biden lamented in his Indigenous Peoples’ Day statement. In his separate statement marking Columbus Day, the president praised explorer Christopher Columbus for his significance to Italian-Americans.
“The story of his journey remains a source of pride for many Italian Americans whose families also crossed the Atlantic,” the statement read. “His voyage inspired many others to follow and ultimately contributed to the founding of America, which has been a beacon for immigrants across the world.”
So which is it then, Joe: a beacon for immigrants or a holocaust for Indigenous Peoples?
