Here are some of the highlights from the last week.
Columbus Day was popular. Countless tweets demanded that people call October 14 “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.” (Do indigenous Europeans on the Continent have any rights that can be celebrated?)
Many Democratic presidential candidates recognized “Indigenous Peoples’ Day.”
(I admit I laughed at that one.)
Media Matters took note of Jared Taylor’s Columbus Day video from last year. Mr. Taylor said that condemning Columbus Day implies that Europeans should never have come to America. Tucker Carlson has made similar points. Media Matters then said Mr. Carlson’s “racist arguments are ripped from white supremacist Jared Taylor.” It tweeted:

Former Obama Administration speechwriter Jon Favreau says:
Jeffrey Guterman, a “mental health counselor” with a large Twitter following, condemned President Donald Trump’s simple Columbus Day greeting.

Feminist writer Lara Witt accused Andrew Yang of racism, even if there was no “conscious intent.”
Homosexual pornographer Michael Williams denounced a parody video portraying President Trump fighting the media. He called it “white people BULLSHIT.”
The original video, a movie scene in which the heroes murder countless white Christians in a church, met with no media outrage.
Talbert Swan denounced white “allies:”
Finally, a helpful reminder from an unverified Twitter account.
