Marjorie Taylor Greene Buried In Mockery For Misspelling Christopher Columbus’ Name In Now-Deleted, Pot-Stirring Tweet Marking Columbus Day

How unsurprising.

Controversial Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene was trying to be edgy on Indigenous Peoples’ Day by giving a shout-out to Christopher Columbus; however, she misspelled his name. Columbus has a dark legacy of torture and genocide of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, among other things, so of course, she had to tweet, “Happy #ColombusDay!” Greene, the Jewish space lasers conspiracy theorist, got called out on Twitter before she deleted her tweet. It’s rather sad that a sitting U.S. Congresswoman doesn’t know how to spell Columbus, but here we are.


CNN reported that as many as 130 cities across the United States have ditched Columbus Day for Indigenous Peoples Day. Of course, Marjorie wanted attention, so she went there. This shouldn’t be hard if you support decency, but the Georgia Republican isn’t a decent person. Today is the first Indigenous Peoples Day officially commemorated by a sitting U.S. president. It was first proposed in 1977.

President Joe Biden issued a proclamation saying that today “celebrates the invaluable contributions and resilience of Indigenous peoples, recognizes their inherent sovereignty, and commits to honoring the Federal Government’s trust and treaty obligations to Tribal Nations.”

I guess that was too much to ask of conservatives.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
