Ron DeSantis issued a proclamation today honoring Christopher Columbus and it was packed full of truth bombs. So much so that it triggered the usual, anti-Columbus leftists out there in social media.
CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS DISPLAYED COURAGE, DETERMINATION, AND PERSEVERANCE WHEN HE SAILED THE OCEAN BLUE MORE THAN 500 YEARS AGO.
HAPPY COLUMBUS DAY! PIC.TWITTER.COM/6N0MLOKRVZ

You can read it for yourself, but in short it praises Columbus “as a founding father who laid the foundation for what would one day become the United States of America…”, suggesting we owe a great deal of gratitude and honor to him. It also calls out those who would revise history to make Columbus into a monster because they hate America.
But of course, leftists everyone mocked and ridiculed it and DeSantis for putting it out:
SAILED. THE. OCEAN. BLUE.
GOT IT. HELP ME, HOLY GHOST.

MEANWHILE RON DESANTIS IS COMPLAINING ABOUT “REVISING HISTORY” IN A PROCLAMATION THAT FEATURES NUMEROUS EXAMPLES OF REVISING HISTORY HTTPS://T.CO/M89A08AJNW

And then there’s the Never Trumpers who have to make everything about Trump:
YOU DON’T REVISE HISTORY BY LOOKING AT WHAT COLUMBUS DID – YOU JUST ACCEPT WHAT WE KNOW TODAY AND LEARN FROM IT.
REVISING HISTORY WOULD BE TRYING TO CREATE AN ALTERNATE REALITY SUCH AS SAYING TRUMP WAS THE REAL WINNER OF THE 2020 ELECTION. HTTPS://T.CO/VOKGZGMLEE
