The Columbus Scene in Yellowstone
The Yellowstone creator is doing exactly with his movies what las Casas did with the Columbus journals: manipulating the truth to fit his narrative. The importance of original vs filtered documents.
Both creators John Linson and Taylor Sheridan should be hanging their heads in shame - but instead you can rest assured they are as proud as peacocks.
Not so sure about Linson, but after seeing the classroom scene of the character Monica reading about Columbus, we checked Sheridan’s previous works and the pattern is the same.
By the way, Monica is reading from the works of Fray Bartolomé de las Casas - NOT from the original journal written by Columbus.
Fast-forward to the 55-second time mark for the Columbus scene - though the first 55 seconds are worth watching as well if you haven’t seen it…
Using Peanut Butter to Swallow the Deception
What pattern does Sheridan use?
Create a work that is very popular with the general American populace - like a modern day western.
Let’s call this the peanut butter.
Then, in that peanut butter, Liberals insert their pill… such as the distorted and highly questionable works of las Casas rendition of Christopher Columbus’s journal.
Inserting a pill into peanut butter is how we get our animals to take their medicine when they refuse to do so…
Inserting a pill into ‘peanut butter‘ is how Liberals get the unthinking to take onto their narrative - it is why critical thinking is NOT practiced in our Liberal-based education system.
Those promoting the truth let the truth do the work, no peanut butter is used - the truth doesn’t need deception to start working on your convictions.
After seeing that classroom seen, we started drilling down into Yellowstone creator Sheridan’s previous works and BINGO.
Sheridan does this a LOT in their work and it is a betrayal to the truth - we’re not so sure about Linson as we have not drilled down into his work yet.
In other words, he’s doing the same thing las Casas did in order to further his cause - lying and manipulation always raises doubt, not trust.
And once that doubt has been experienced then it will take a long time for trust to return - in las Casas case, he died before he could rectify his lying and manipulation, if he wanted to do so that is.
Sheridan still has some time - if he wants to do so that is…
Convictions Should Always Be Confronted
For most, the classroom scene will go right over their head - but they won’t forget it as once the truthful version is read or heard then convictions come into play as they always do when their is a conflict with the truth.
And, unfortunately, way too many run from their convictions and instead of running to them - they do this as they believe things are happening to them instead of believing things happen for them.
Which is exactly what Liberals and globalists are counting on you to do - they WANT you to avoid confronting your convictions…
What makes las Casas work on this journal very questionable is he inserts his OWN thoughts into Columbus's original writings by adding content that was NOT in Columbus's journal - that’s not a translation, that is an opinion.
And it is lying in an attempt to manipulate the reader.
Though las Casas intentions appear to be well placed, he did himself and his cause a total injustice by lying and manipulating the truth.
There is a question of whether las Casas, who accompanied Columbus on his 3rd and final journey to the Americas, had a hatred or love for Columbus - given las Casas disposition, we are favoring hatred but are not ruling out the latter either until we see something in las Casas own writing that says one or the other.
The Translation That Remains True
In 1893 Clements Robert Markham, C.B., F.R.S, President of the Hakluyt Society, published an English translation of Columbus’s journal.
If unfamiliar, the Hakluyt Society is named after Richard Hakluyt (1552-1616) and was founded in 1846.
They have been centrally concerned with the publication of scholarly editions of primary records (aka original source documents) of voyages and travels.
As with all their works, the Hakluyt Society pulled their content Columbus's original journal.
Recently the originals have been somehow lost.
How convenient, eh?
His journal survives hundreds of years then just disappears.
There are no co-incidences.
Columbus wrote his journal in Latin, the market language of the day.
Filtered vs Original Source Documents
The writings of las Casas, Cabot, and Real are called filtered as they are pulling from other sources - sometimes this will include the original document, most of the times filtered documents include content from other filtered documents.
Some of you may remember the game played by kids - a circle is formed, the more the merrier; a teacher provides one student a written phrase to whisper into the person next to him, and they in turn whisper to the next, until the whispers have gone full circle.
Has anyone ever heard the very same words as they were written by the teacher?
Books are the same way and the Liberal publishing industry uses this to their advantage - every author is given a set of books to pull from in their own book, by the time that information has hit its 3rd or 4th share by other authors it all and most likely does not represent the works in the original document.
Most Source Documents Are Hated by Liberals
las Casas is revered by the woke as he fits their narrative, Columbus’s original journal doesn't fit their narrative - hence the push of the las Casas version of Columbus’s journal, which was written not too long before he manipulated it all.
Given how huge the damage has been inflected on OSDs by the Liberal education system, we HIGHLY recommend everyone pull from OSDs as much as possible, even if in a foreign language.
Yes, it means you have to invest time and energy into pursuing the truth - but you don't have to.
Which is EXACTLY what the Liberals (and globalists) are counting on you to do...
