Black Legend Hides the Truth about America’s Discovery

by Fernando Quijano

DISCLAIMER: EIR and its founding editor Lyndon LaRouche subsequently repudiated the lead article of this edition of the magazine, due to its infestation by the viewpoint of a right-wing synarchist faction of the Catholic Church, to which EIR and LaRouche are politically opposed.

Rather than celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Christian evangelization of the Americas, the promoters of the “Black Legend” would have us mourn that event, and instead elevate indigenous paganism as a battering-ram against Christianity. Fernando Quijano traces it back to oligarchical hatred of the Hapsburgs’ defense of Europe against the Ottoman Empire.
