If one is going to go after sacred cows, one should really go after sacred cows. Most of the people in our society who get credit for "going after sacred cows" are just going after unfashionable ones. At least ones that are unfashionable in the circles they want to appeal to. We live in a world of iconodules posing as iconoclasts.

Columbus Day

Glenn Reynolds quotes something approvingly of Columbus: That his expedition was part of a revitalization of Western civilization.

This is supposed to be a retort to the Anti-Columbards. But of course this is the real reason why they hate Columbus. They aren't really opposed to genocidal conquest, which they claim Columbus initiated. One look at some of their historic heroes and those whose ideas they sympathize with demonstrates that.

One look at the blind eye they will turn to such things outside of the West also illustrates that.
