Tenn. Leftists Want to Replace Columbus Day with Super Bowl Monday

'As introduced, removes Columbus Day as a legal holiday; designates the first Monday after the Super Bowl as a legal holiday...'

(Dmytro “Henry” AleksandrovHeadline USA) Leftists from the Tennessee government proposed to trade holidays and replace Columbus Day with a new holiday of Super Bowl Monday.

On Wednesday, Democrats Senator London Lamar and Representative Joe Towns Jr. introduced their bill to suggest that Tennessee should get rid of any recognition of Columbus Day and replace it with a Super Bowl Monday holiday to celebrate the game, which is always on Sunday, according to Breitbart.

“As introduced, removes Columbus Day as a legal holiday; designates the first Monday after the Super Bowl as a legal holiday,” the bill’s summary reads.

The Democrats say that the bill would change Tennessee Code “by deleting the language, ‘the second Monday in October, known as ‘Columbus Day,’” and inserting the language, “the first Monday after the Super Bowl, known as ‘Super Bowl Monday.’”

However, it seems that this bill exists only to attack Columbus Day which celebrates the person who is so hated by the left.

In 1937, President Franklin D Roosevelt chose Oct. 12 as the day to honor the Italian explorer who many say helped “discover the New World,” thus making Columbus Day a national holiday. However, even though it is a federal holiday, despite Lamar and Towns Jr. trying to denigrate Columbus Day with their bill, the holiday is not an official state holiday already in Tennessee because nothing is closed on or near Columbus Day in the state.

This means that the whole purpose of the bill is just to get rid of Columbus Day because it became popular for people on the left to constantly criticize Christopher Columbus.

According to Breitbart, some people still argue that replacing Columbus Day with Super Bowl Sunday is not a bad idea because so many Americans attend parties on Sunday day, which results in their production suffering at school and work the following day.
