Monday was Columbus Day and right-wingers were crawling all over social media attacking anyone who calls out Columbus for killing thousands of native Americans.
It’s almost like a scene out of The Sopranos.
Enter Senator Ted Cruz.
Ted Cruz is a Cuban-American born in Canada, but like a good troll, Cruz claimed he’s a “proud Italian-American.”
1/x In honor of Columbus Day, and as a proud Italian-American, I give you Reagan’s 1986 proclamation, reproduced in full.
It’s tragic that young people aren’t taught this anymore.
October 8, 1986
