There has been a recent initiative and petition to remove the Christopher Columbus statute on the west side of the City of Columbus, WI.  This is the counter petition to oppose this action.  We the undersigned petitioners oppose the removal and rewriting of history according to modern contemporary fads.  The accusations and slander against Columbus are mostly false perpetuated by Columbus rival Francisco de Bobadilla (https://ricochet.com/225641/archives/debunking-lies-columbus-story-francisco-de-bobadilla/  We implore upon the Columbus City Council to protect the icon of the City's namesake.  Those susceptible to giving up their history easily to modern contemporary fads of political correctness are likely to end up not believing in anything tomorrow after our other icons fall as well.  Who will be our hero's tomorrow after Columbus, Washington, Jefferson and the rest are gone?  History is important.  We need to protect it.
