Somebody Stuck an Ax into This Christopher Columbus Statue Last Night

(ANTIMEDIA) Detroit, MI — Once again, it is Columbus Day in the United States, a day that has lost much of its former prestige. As of late, the holiday has come under increased scrutiny because of the violent and repressive actions Columbus and his ilk wreaked upon the native population of the Americas. In fact, as we covered earlier today, many cities across the country are abolishing Columbus Day altogether and replacing it with Indigenous Peoples Day.

It seems an individual or group in Detroit takes the indecency of Christopher Columbus very seriously — seriously enough to vandalize a bust of the Christopher Columbus with an ax to the forehead with fake blood spilling out. As Detroit’s Metro Times details,

“[…] it appears that someone has vandalized the bust of Columbus located outside of Detroit’s Renaissance Center. A photo posted to Reddit shows what looks like a bloody hatchet blow to the statue’s head.

Located at Jefferson Avenue and Randolph Street, the statue was created by Italian sculptor Augusto Rivalta and dedicated to the city of Detroit on Oct. 12, 1910.”

The photo, uploaded on Imgur and posted to Reddit, is embedded below.

  4. Are they fining the local press, television and radio networks, advertisers and businesses for airing and printing Columbus Day Sales advertisments? They should do so here in these cities where it has become abolished.

  5. I am sorry but this is a crock. He is still a part of the history of this country and people are being idiotic. Who ever did this should be charged with vandalism It is deserved. Since we have been accquiring all of these immigrants it seems to be OK to insult, and attempt to change
    what was. These people need to get over them selves. If you do not like the history of this country or the people or the traditions. Then get the hell out!! You do not have to be here!! I would prefer you to leave than try to change this country!!

  9. If u call American Indians (First Nations People) immigrants, you're short of brain cells. Over 500+ years of enslavement of not only Native Americans but basically every other race suffered at the hands of one self-proclaimed superior race and all you provide are meaningless arguements such as "leave the country…". Wow, the shiny irony of that is so blinding! I'm sick of this so-called superior race complaining about juvenile things when they did so much more hateful and disgusting things to Native Americans and different races. Its time to reap what you sow and feel the pain that you caused to so many different nationalities. This is nothing compared to all the racing of our women and children and the slaughtering of everybody. You should be ashamed of yourself if u think this is vandalism. Oppression is far more painful and soul traumitizing. CC is no damn hero and everybody knows it except for textbook glamourizing. Native Americans, we aren't going anywhere: you can bet your bs history on that.

  17. I cannot understand the hypocrisy of Americans on this website. How can you live with yourself knowing you live in a land that is stolen from natives? You can set the deciscion of your colonist dirtbag forefathers right to go back where you came from. Go back to Europe. We do not celebrate Columbus day here.

  18. Columbus never saw an American Native in what is known as the USA. He never set foot in the USA. Ponce De Leon landed in what is now Florida. Wow

  19. Finding the country!?!?. He was lost!! He thought he was in India. Thus the name "Indians"! He died thinking he had found a short cut to India. I understand why people attempted to hold him up in honor (white supremency). Now that the true history is known, why keep supporting the lie. Personally I prefer the "Native American Day" better.

  23. Joseph Lepes Hey there,Joseph, by the way, since you are in/were in the service, I see you are stupid enough to continue to vote for the party that keps cutting veteran's benefits, considering all the "Vote for Trump" crap on your wall and that you LIKE the movie "Reagan"

    I hope you undertsand and know that the Republicans are the ones who keep voting against and/or blocking veterans benefits/diability etc. but obviously you DON'T understand that, because you want Trump to win.

  24. I didn't know Reichardt was one of the names on the ship's manifest for the Mayflower…sounds German as in "Third Reich", Diana Reichardt if you were still in your ancestral home of Bavaria spouting xenophobically about outsiders, immigrants and intruders that would be one thing, but you aren't.

    Columbus sailed under the Spanish flag and never logged in as having sailed to any part of the shoreline pertaining to the United States. Not one grain of sand on our seabord came under the shadow of his boots or those of his men, so clearly your argument is skewed to a subjective or, to put it in plain speak using a monosyllabic lexicon that seems to beheavily favored by "true 'Mericans" old Chris who sailed from Spain with three ships did not reach this land, ever ever ever ever. It seems you like fantasy role playing and there are various other sites on the internet for you to indulge your imaginative side, but the sites dealing with history are clearly not for you.

    JOSEPH LEPES… Your everyday small town, conservative type you know your typical pretty simple between the ears type of fella usually seen on facebook bitching about his fellow Americans, whom he shares Nothing in common with trying to kindle up friendship the only way he knows how by condemning other Americans. Why one might suppose? Is that supposed to be patriotic? No. But it's the product of effective brainwashing. Our country isn't all that great anymore so we're trying out socialism for a change. Donald Trump sir? No. But Lets watch.

  30. Reminds me of that episode of The Simpsons when they had Springfield's celebration. Whether he was a prick or a hero, the point is moot – his actions lead to what we have built to this day. Love him, hate him – doesn't matter, without him America would have been different.

  32. these racist murderous bastards killed the red headed giant tribes that existed in North America when they got here. Every tribe has this as a part of their oral history. They aren't native to North America.

  33. Matt Foutch I'll say it they killed off the Native Red Headed tribes that were here when they got here and every North American Tribe has lore about the tribes that existed in North America before them. They are just migrants like everyone else, just a little more racist.

  35. Marcus Aequus Funny, Columbus, De Las Casas and other chroniclers 500 years ago didn't mention that the Taino were engaged in 'warfare' . On the contrary they all stress how peaceful and kindly the people were. Quite a contrast to a murderer, torturer, theif and enslaver like Columbus and his not-so-merry band of rapists, eh? Hey Marcus, best not learn your 'history' from John Wayne movies, they were never intended to be documentaries.

  36. Joseph Lepes You know, the fact that you are in love with the caps lock key, screech incoherently like a poo-flinging monkey, and appear to be madly in love with a thief, torturerer, and murder like Columbus says a lot about you – and none of it good. You might want to go to the doctor and get your medication adjusted, you seem to be having an episode.

  37. Man that's some bullsh*t. I don't know whats worse the axe (which if was done on any other holiday to anybody else that was important to any other people would be a hate crime denounced publicly by both sides. Oh btw all other icons besides I would say MLK all got some kind of blood on there hands) or cities changing the day to indigenous people day wow that's some wrong sh*t. Way out of line. Now should they have a holiday yes, absolutely but a different day. I guess if u had to on the same day but not in that way. You font change a day for another. I can't stand when one race wants to blame sh*t on the decedent's of the race that wronged them when the decendents had absolutely nothing to do witb the wrong that was cominted which again wasn't even cominted against the race of people of people today but their ancestors. I don't care about what people got to say but, Get Over It ! It's done it's all done and over with get over it. It didn't happen to you. Mostly not even your parents. So for real stop, move foward, your doing more harm then good. What happened to pride, you know not cringe about sh*t thag happens to you but more forward doing better for yourself. Everybody parents teach that, so why would it be ok to cry about something rhat didn't even happen to you. For those that say what a bad person he is fine don't celebrate him but, there are people who do. To some he is an icon so why are you taking away from them . That's not right. Now if you really have a problem with that day and your cote wants to change the name fine you can do that cause just like they are free to celebrate him you are free not to. So if your cities wantd to change the name then it should be Italian pride day or along those lines. Never should it be changed to the group that's complaining about the day. That is wrong and takes away from they people who celebrate that day. If you people (as in race but not in a disrespectful way, so don't even go there. I mean you could but it will show you have no point to actually make) bottom line you know it's an Italian pride really and to take from that is wrong to give it to the people complain is a slap in the face textbook hypocrite sh*t

  38. I guess u can't edited it. I made some typos my mistake if you can't figure it out sorry but if you can and still attack me over thag we'll you an idiot and got no point to make

    Now the basic point Columbus day really is Italian pride day. You don't have to call it Columbus day but if some want to they fan if so don't they don't have too. We are all free. Now to change it to indigenous people day or anything else that not about Italian pride day is wrong and is an insult to Italians and hypocritical

  39. Wow this phone side not galaxy 6 change your words to whatever correct what's right leave whats spelled wrong change words misspelled one letter that still make sense to word that make no sense and are 10 letters longer

    Corrected sentence ;
    You don't have to call it Columbus day but if some want to they can, if some don't want to call it that they don't have to.

    Now even simpler Columbus day never should be changed to Indigenous people day never. It's an Italian holiday, you change to something that has to do with Italians only. Anything else is wrong and insulting.

    Btw all previous post I did not mean to uncapulize Indigenous people, my phone did that. So take it up with Samsung as to why phone don't automatically reconizeing Indigenous as a proper noun (i had to hit the button every time to capulize the word, which i did so don't even say anything on that. I can see aready, "oh you think Italian are better" no I don't the phone changes it to capital automatically. Yea so not me , but really as said before if you attack that, or the fact I type as if I'm actually talking to you, or rarely use periods and commons in the wrong places a lot. Well then once again you truly have absolutely No Real point to make and are the actual A$$h*let your tring to say I am

  41. Oh shut up, you moron. Now nothing happened to u or anybody u know. Really, so stop crying. Not really an excuse but you guys were doing that shit to yourselfs long before the white man came. So stop acting like natives were all peace till the big bad white man showed up. Now as for slave yous weren't used for slaves in north America like u claiming. Yes Columbus did say (well so they say, I dont doubt it) "you guys would make good slaves" (which was wrong) but it was the times then. Now yea CC (as you put him) enslave a few of you guys. However natives were never part of the American slave trade like you claiming. Actually, it made no sense too for you guys knew the land to well. Obviously way better then the white man did. So sorry the white man did not mass enslave you (oh wait, I mean ur ancestors no wait, I mean ur ancestors ancestors. Yes them way back then) so again not the whites. So you know the spanish mass enslaved yous (no wait, ur ancestors no wait, ur aaa u know what i mean). Now did we conquer and take there land? Yes we did that, but it's done. Which means what's done is done. what are we suspose to do now? (Hitorical question, yes I know spelled that wrong. Am I giving u to much credit to understand that? Another one of those questions) Every body has been conquered or conquered sombody else. After all it was the times. Now did we rape ur women? yes that happened, during wars and during raids. In fact both sides did, but neither side did it in the mass you claim. That was done by the spanish

  42. Danny Guillot i didnt hear Marcus say that. I just saw you twist his words to try to make a point you don't have. All he said was they were dong it to thereselfs long before Columbus came along. All he brought was better weapons which made him a dominant force in a practice that was aready going on around the world. No where in there did he say anything about justifying anything. Now before you say anything about Columbus had it easy because the natives were extremely nice and ignore the of Columbus motives, yes they were because they never seen the likes of Columbus crew mostly there weapons there technology. So the linked them to gods and were nice and Columbus took advantage. It's what was done then. What do you think the natives would of done if they saw Columbus crew and tech as weaker to there own the same damn shit with the same motives.

  46. Brett Kelly ,,,Since 1980 America has dropped, since we swung back to trickle down Robber Baron from a NEW DEAL Demand economy to less Progressive taxes, the rise of religious fundamentalism such a success in the Islam world(LOL) and 90% drop in Unions:

    #1 in Wages to 16th (in min wages half of 1965 with more than half of Americans making less than that)

    #1 In % getting college degrees to 13th.
    ……
    #1 Creditor nation to largest DEBTOR Nation( just under Reagan).

    #1 in education to 25th, 31st in internet speed, 21st in railroads, 14th electric grid

    #1 in infrastructure to 25th( we spent 11% of GDP under Ike on infrastructure now ….2.5%, …or 1/3 as much as the countries beating us.

    #1 in healthcare , now 37th and yet twice the cost

    #1 in MFG..now we have lost 80% of our private industry, 30 million job outsourced.182K factories closed, 60,000 under Bush.

    #1 In High tech, under Bush we lost 50% of high tech and now import more high tech than we export.

    Only developed nation w/o national healthcare for everyone, and yet we pay twice as much.

    Most of what we export is raw materials, like a 3rd world country. Gasoline our number on export, while we import computers. The EU exports 50% more than us and it’s not raw materials or food…

    We have not produced a commercial ship in more than 30 years. The cruise ships are made in the EU, where wages are more than double ours.

    We are first in Murders, %population in prison. 91st in income distribution, 51st infant mortality, life expectancy. 6th in Auto production, in per capita ½ of even IRAN. 27th in middleclass wealth! Pls lest abandon Repub economic ideas before we are at the very bottom….

  49. Brett Kelly did you research all that before you spit it out? Marvelous…applause applause! Take your fucking 5th grade essay and shove it up your hole. You're just mad because your ancestors' guilt and atrocities rub on your neck and weight heavily on your shoulders. I've heard all the redundant excuses and death stenching opinions coming from the mouths of modern day KKK advocators/confederates. If you had an ounce of intelligence in you, you would realize that I'm not acting. People are truly in despair and hurt due to your sociopathic and insane ancestors. yea, Native Americans had to be warriors to keep from being annihilated from greedy land scavengers like CC. I'm really sure you know what it's like to be enslaved (don't talk about it if you can't relate) or to have your great great grandparent stolen, sold and enslaved by a priviledged white family. I see your mind's enslaved tho. Forcing Native Americans into western colonization against their will and heritage is slavery. Internally, you loathe the misdeeds of what this holiday represents only you don't want anyone to see that so you obviously would side with the oppressors…only you're too clueless to realized you're still oppressed by history. Take your maks off…moron. You're like the perfect example of limid existentialism (Yes, please go grab a dictionary for this cuz I know you need one).

    Now yes this country has problems it does but it's not the worst it still one of the best if not the best in many ways more important ways then all those statistics u mentioned u know the ones u tried to pass them as ur opinion thinking no one will know u stole that whole shit from a tv show but yes some of what you said is important most of it is not but only if it was an opinion even better if it was yours

  61. Diana Reichardt, that is one of the strangest comments I've seen. The main issue with Columbus was his instigating the maltreatment of the indigenous, of the natives, of whom (hopefully needless to say) he wasn't among — he was an outsider himself of course. It has very little to do with contemporary immigrants. So basically you're saying that the natives don't count and contemporary immigrants don't count, but certain immigrants are privileged . . . I guess that's what you're saying . . .

  62. Eric fast good reply mad sense dumb ass i was making a point. The bottom line they were no different then Columbus as a people they just didn't have the advance weaponry they knee it to so the try to a please them. If they thought they could do the same they would of. Don't tell me they would cause it's show in history of both sides
    Btw don't tell me I'm in highs choose then say to someone else this conversation is for adults u sound stupid and should take ur own advice . So make an actual point asshole

Brett Kelly this pretty much sums up why the entire rest of the world thinks that americans are a complete joke. you are all laughing stocks. you stopped being a 'great country' a long time ago, too. sit back and enjoy the violent shithole your country is inevitably going to turn into in about 20 years. PEACE

  73. “Our Lady of Corvallis” Right because Catholicism has been so kind to the world. Ever hear of the crusades? Don’t you dare bash Columbus when you proudly display your association with murders and pedophiles.

  78. "violent and repressive actions Columbus and his ilk wreaked upon the native population of the Americas."

    let's not forget that CC discovered the Carribean Islands first and he and "his ilk" practically annihilated the entire population of the Taino Indians that lived on the islands before he stepped on "US Soil". he didn't "discover" America, many others already had been here way before he was. he just decided to rape, pass on European diseases and pillage more than the others.

  79. Joseph Lepes someone needs to put an ax in your head just like Chrisie! You would then fit right in with those that need to be relinquished from society! You're a piece of shit for a soldier. You have no respect or humanitarianism for human life. You probably just joined the Army so you could shoot a gun and feel superior over others which you are very far from. Get a real life and shoot yourself! I'm sure it won't hurt many peopl's feelings!

  82. People are being idiotic because they don't want to celebrate the largest genocide in history? The Native Americans were not immigrants…they were native. Columbus and his companions were the immigrants who killed them all and stole their land. Native American culture IS the history of this country. This was their land LONG before it was ours. They were raped, enslaved and murdered in cold blood. And you think this is something to be celebrated? I wonder if your family was raped and murdered, and all your possessions stolen…if you would want to celebrate it once a year. Columbus didn't even discover America. It was discovered by someone years before him, except that person just left because the lands were already inhabited. Columbus got credit for the discovery because he orchestrated the deaths of the inhabitants. He was a theiving, murdering, cold-hearted prick AND he was a fraud.

  91. Yes, but he first arived in Hispaniola and one of the first things he said was how the natives would make great slaves. Not the Native Americans, but that doesn't really matter, nobody deserves to be thought of as slaves based off their race. He was still an awful human being nontheless. Only obsessed with finding gold. Also while we are talking facts, it wasn't even Columbus who first laid his eyes on the new world, it was one of his crew mates.

  92. Kate Anderson Columbus was Italian who represented the greedy Spaniards at the time. Also all of the natives spent 100's of years in perpetual war, slavery among themselves. Columbus does not represent those who landed seeking religious freedom. Look at all the gold expedition divers looking for Spanish, French, Portugeuz ships loaded with gold. Don't have any going from Boston to England ever at the time. Too many people rewriting history around here.

  93. Frank Madison I don't know, all of the information I put up there I lerned from my history professor. Pretty sure she's not teaching the wrong things, or trying to rewrite history, she has a plethera of degrees in history. I never said that Columbus was there seeking religious freedom. I also never said anything about Boston or England? He was working for the Spanish crown, I know that. When he arrived at Hispaniola he saw all of the native's gold jewlery and assumed that that place was a gold mine! So he reported back to the crown and told them that he could make spain rich with all of the gold. They then basically enslaved the tainos (the natives inhabiting that land) to make them search for gold, using awful methods resulting in thousands of deaths.

  94. Kate Anderson I agree with you but the article is hit job on Americans as the bad guy who stole land from peaceful Indians that's the narritive they created now and behind the motivation to do away with this holiday.

  95. Frank Madison Well, he did end up killing many natives… I never see that as a good thing. Nothing was ever peaceful, sure, I agree with that. But you can't just show up somewhere, make people do what you want them to do, end up killing them, and take over. Well, obiously you can but that was not the right thing to do. It wasn't their [spaniards, Columbus, ect..] land anyways. I don't know, I think he's an asshole! Haha, and in elementary and middle school they sure whitewash a lot of history. I remember always learning about, "Yay! Columbus, he sailed the ocean blue in 1492, and discovered America! Everything was perfect and he was a great man for discovering our home…" yadda yadda yadda. I think what people want is for the truth to be taught, and to not glorify him as some hero, when he was certainly far from one.

  96. Kate Anderson nothing wrong with the truth about Columbus, he was a man of his greedy times. But then again that how property and wealth were gained, by force (war). Until we invented capitalism where one can have those things without force or killing. I can setup a web design firm get money from clients and give them a site they love. Both parties are happy. There is a movement of people who are trying to shame people in the USA for things Columbus did. That's where they distort history reading all these posts people don't even realize Columbus never touched USA soil. So off they go in this anti-USA rant. As more countries embrace capitalism and let go of their Kings, Communists and Socialists failed political systems, there are those who look to destroy capitalism and go back to the days of Columbus.

  97. Frank Madison Yeah, and that movement of people are just very uneducated. They only remember the white washed history they were taught. It's very important to teach factually correct history, rather than what parents want their kids to hear because they "can't handle it" just yet. This is the point that i'm trying to emphasize, lol. Who cares if people get all "Anti-USA", they're being stubborn and won't change their minds. We need to teach people correctly before they start thinking these things though. We can do this by trying to stop the glorification of this man who basically paved the way for 'modern' slavery (modern as in the indentured servants, and trans-atlantic slave trade to come after the discovery). Also, don't get me wrong here, there were definitely positive outcomes from the discovery of the new world, but we need to shed light on the negatives.
