Liberals like to mope around about how Christopher Columbus was a racist mass murderer, blah blah blah and all that noise. But it turns out this time they may have a point: Why celebrate some Spanish puss when you can celebrate a VIKING!
He's rugged! He's manly! He has a beard like the Duck Dynasty guys! And his father not only killed a bunch of people but was SO INCREDIBLY CAUCASIAN that he was actually RED instead of white.
This is a real White Man's White Man! So watch the video and learn, people! Educate yourselves. Learn about Erik the Red, Vikings, slaughters, Greenland, magic beans, and why all right-wing, conservative tea-partiers in America should be celebrating Leif Erikson Day!
Hinga dinga durgen!
For those of you who have made it this far down in the description: HI THERE!
On a serious note, there really isn't that much to say about this video. We kind of wanted to have some fun about the way Columbus Day has become such a political football for some people, and to be honest this happens on both the right AND the left. Yes, we here at LiberalBias.com are progressives, but we'd also like to toss the idea out there that it is OK to have a holiday celebrating the good things a person did, even if that person also did bad things. After all, holidays aren't meant for worshipping a person. (OK, well, maybe some are.) They are for recognizing a person's achievements.
And the fact is, if you want to find really awful reasons to either like OR hate someone, most historical figures are flawed enough that you can do it. Thus: Leif Erikson Day! Someone we can celebrate because he is slightly less terrible than "the other guy", but conseratives can still find a way to make it icky if they really try hard enough.
