That's a pretty good compilation of different takes on Columbus. I think the Prager one is fairly balanced, showing the brutality on all sides.

It's actually Prager's that prompted me to start this thread. I find Steven Crowder repulsive, but I thought many parts of his video made sense, although much of the rest is just spinning divisive politics all around it.

My favorite is the third one. It seems to me that this guy makes serious research before commenting on any topic and doesn't have a pre-programmed agenda. In this case, it seems that Steven Crowder actually makes more sense (historically speaking) than Adam, but the guy from Knowing Better seems to be the most factual and neutral, seeing both sides of the argument
