8 years ago, my friend George (he’s behind the camera) and I were arrested for vandalizing this statue of Christopher Columbus at a park in the North End of Boston (see the police report below). We made the front page of the Boston Herald (see below), and even raised the ire of mayor Menino himself. Today, as I prepare to depart to Iquitos, Peru, where I will undergo a traditional Shipibo Indian initiation into ayahuasca shamanism lasting 6 weeks, I’m sharing the video footage that almost got my ass imprisoned for 2 years. Call it a symbolic offering to the indigenous peoples this power hungry psychopath tried to destroy.
This man and this holiday symbolize everything that’s wrong in the United States. The fact that we’re still celebrating the life of a thieving murderer shows just how far from reality most Americans live. If the first step to healing is admitting you have a problem, then step negative 5 would be abolishing this klan holiday. And in case you need a little more convincing as to the essential character of this bloodthirsty freak, I’ll leave you with a choice line straight out of dickhead’s diary :
(describing the Arawak people) “They do not bear arms, and do not know them, for I showed them a sword, they took it by the edge and cut themselves out of ignorance. They have no iron. Their spears are made of cane… . They would make fine servants…. With fifty men we could subjugate them all and make them do whatever we want.” This guy.
