SaY NO to ThanksGivinG!

Its that time of year again. Before the ACLU starts protecting us from nativity scenes, and politically correct counsels save us from theocratic encroachments like red and green lights….we have Thanksgiving.
The War on Thanksgiving
StopTheACLU
Many people think that this is a time for sharing, family and happiness. However, the Seattle Public School Staff are being informed that this is a myth: Instead, Thanksgiving should be used as a time of race guilt, America hating, and mourning.

So sorry Libs, I’m fresh out of self hatred.

Aint it simply stunningly remarkable how no other “native people” were ever oppressed anywhere on this green earth while conquering nations were forming, other than right here on the North American continent. Shame on us. thanksgivingopia.gif

Guess what peeps.
There are more Indians living within current US boundries now than ever there during Columbus’s time.

As I have posted before..the Indians had been at war with one another long before outside feet ever reached what became American shores.

But if the Libs insist on sellin tickets to the “Grievance Theater” , let’s just keep an honest score shall we. thanksgivinganiq.gif

Not only did Indians kill white ,black, and yellow men, they killed their own red skinned people way before they laid eyes on whitey.

Of course offering the gift called “tobacco” to the white settlers, has become the gift that keeps on giving………Cancer, that is.

Truth:
The European conquest just like all conquests throughout history, was brutal, vicious and even barbaric.

Does it behoove us to be aware of the ghastly manner in which our forefathers treated some of the indigenous peoples following their conquest? You bet.

It can be studied and taught so as to inculcate moral values. Indeed.

In spite of this, our modern celebration of Thanksgiving has virtually nothing to do with any of the above. Nothing, nada, zip.

While the Libs just love to portray the Indians as a bead making, pipe smoking peaceful loving people who never comitted a wrong deed , until Europeans came here to America, …that remains a revisionist PC distorted view of history.

Thanksgiving is a day to give thanks.
Not to commemorate the atrocities committed by White Europeans.

Hence it is not called : Atrocity-Giving Day.

Heck. Why don’t we allow the Leftist haters to obliterate everything that makes us Americans. thanksgivingk2.gif

Yes. It was a War..and our culture won.
The indigenous people lost.

We can not change that reality.

However, the intention of our precious “Thanksgiving Holiday” signed into law is to honor the historical event and to allow us, the citizens to give thanks.

To our deity of choice, to our loved ones, for our freedoms and myriad of blessings, to our Troops, and for all the bounties we receive as a Nation as well as individually at the end of the harvest season.

Speaking of atrocities………….
..Do the skools teach the endless massacres and blood-letting still being committed by Muzlims every day?

Naw…but don’t sweat it Libs…….the sooner you allow the USA to become a calip-hate, the sooner there will be no more traditional American Holidays to demolish eh.

And now …………..

    May your’s be a happy one too.

    Giving thanks is a whole lot better than giving grief!

  2. Kevin says:

    I”sorry Libs, I’m fresh out of self hatred. “

    Try again next year though! :)

  3. MK says:

    Good post Angel, i’ve never heard number 1, CHRISTMAS CELEBRATES A BIRTH,
    NOT AN ABORTION!

    Makes sense, why leftists hate it so much, happy thanksgiving folks.

  4. William Teach says:

    Is there anything that actually makes a liberal happy? So far, I cannot find a thing.

  5.   WTW: The War On Christmas Has Started Begins Early — Pirate’s Cove says:

    [...] Jay at Stop The ACLU (we jihadis really do love your ACLU. We think the A stands for Arab, nowadays) also chimes in on the Thanksgiving thang, as does Six Meat Buffet and Woman Honor Thyself (though I am not particularly happy with that pork picture at the top. She and I may need to have words, particularly if she is no wearing the appropriate dress.) [...]

  6. nanc says:

    giving thanks is my favorite holiday of the year! i would gladly give up all others in lieu of this one special day.

    actually – everyday should be thanksgiving – from beginning to end!

  7. Frasypoo says:

    Angel,
    I am laughing so hard at the gift that keeps on giving!!You are so right about it!!

  8. Gayle says:

    Nanc is right. We should give thanks every day for having been born in this wonderful country that so many despise. Let the libs wallow in their self-hatred. Since it’s a free country – no thanks to them – they have every right to be idiotic as they choose to be. I’m surprised they haven’t all dressed up like Indians and gone to the mountains to live as the Indians did. Oops… forgot. That would mean they would actually have to work in order to survive and they wouldn’t have time to protest everything about America. It would ruin the reason they have for living.

    I hope you and yours will have an awesome Thanksgiving, Angel. You deserve it!

  9. OMMAG says:

    As a Canadian I celebrate the feast of thanksgiving in October …. but since I really like Roast Turkey … I do it again on November with my US friends.

    Really though … turkeys don’t make it a special occasion …. it’s the fact that we take the time to share in our thanks.

    I also like making my atheist/agnostic nephew squirm by making him join us in saying grace ;)

    Thanks to God for providing a world where we can grow and prosper.

    Props to Nanc for saying that we SHOULD do this every day!

  10. Panhandle Poet says:

    I personally prefer enchiladas or possibly brisket for Thanksgiving. That turkey stuff is just foul….

  11. Brooke says:

    WIll white kids soon be required to self-flagellate while learning about America?

    BTW, Angel, our family serves a turkey and a ham on Thanksgiving. Mmmm!

  12. Don L says:

    Thanksgiving is a conservative attempt to fight global warming. Everbody stays home and removes a trukey from the environment that otherwise would be belching forth deadly CO2. Eat a turkey and save the planet!

  13. michael class says:

    This year, Seattle public school teachers were reminded by their administrative authorities that Thanksgiving is “a time of mourning” and “a bitter reminder of five-hundred years of betrayal returned for friendship.” Seattle school teachers were directed to learn even more horrible “truths” about Thanksgiving: that no one knows when the first Thanksgiving occurred, that the people who came across the ocean on the Mayflower were not really Pilgrims, that the colonists who came to the new land were not really seeking freedom of religion.

    In her November 2007 letter to all Seattle Public Schools staff, Caprice D. Hollins, Director of Seattle Schools Department of Equity and Race, wrote: “With so many holidays approaching we want to again remind you that Thanksgiving can be a particularly difficult time for many of our Native students. This website (http://www.oyate.org/resources/shortthanks.html) offers suggestions on ways to be sensitive of diverse experiences and perspectives and still make the holiday meaningful for all students. Here you will discover ways to help you and your students think critically, and find resources where you can learn about Thanksgiving from a Native American perspective. Eleven myths are identified about Thanksgiving, take a look at Myth #11 and begin your own deconstruction. Myth #11: Thanksgiving is a happy time. Fact: For many Indian people, Thanksgiving is a time of mourning, of remembering how a gift of generosity was rewarded by theft of land and seed corn, extermination of many from disease and gun, and near total destruction of many more from forced assimilation. As currently celebrated in this country, “Thanksgiving” is a bitter reminder of 500 years of betrayal returned for friendship.”

    Does that make you choke on your turkey? It should. When teachers forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving, our children suffer and our nation is imperiled.

    Here is the truth: There is a generally accepted “First Thanksgiving” and its meaning is clear.

    In 1621, the Plymouth colonists and the Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast which is now known as the first Thanksgiving. The most detailed description of the “First Thanksgiving” was written by Edward Winslow in “A Journal of the Pilgrims at Plymouth,” in 1621: “Our harvest being gotten in, our governor sent four men on fowling, that so we might after a special manner rejoice together after we had gathered the fruit of our labors. They four in one day killed as much fowl as, with a little help beside, served the company almost a week. At which time, among other recreations, we exercised our arms, many of the Indians coming amongst us, and among the rest their greatest king Massasoit, with some ninety men, whom for three days we entertained and feasted, and they went out and killed five deer, which they brought to the plantation and bestowed upon our governor, and upon the captain, and others. And although it be not always so plentiful as it was at this time with us, yet by the goodness of God, we are so far from want that we often wish you partakersof our plenty.”

    The meaning of Thanksgiving was clear to the colonists: a time to thank God.

    The meaning of Thanksgiving has always been clear to all Americans: President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln made sure of that.

    In his October 3, 1789, “Proclamation for a National Day of Thanksgiving,” President George Washington wrote: “Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor, and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be.”

    In his March 2, 1863, “Proclamation for a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting, and Prayer,” President Abraham Lincoln wrote: “We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth, and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand that preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us! It behooves us, then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness. Now, therefore…I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer.”

    So, why do the administrators of the Seattle Public Schools not know the true meaning of Thanksgiving? Why don’t they teach the truth? Why do they insist on a curriculum designed to instill guilt and shame?

    I don’t know. But, I decided to do something about it.

    My name is Michael Class. I live in the Seattle area with my wife and two children. I am a retired “dot-com” executive who just couldn’t sit by and let the mis-education of America’s youth go unchallenged anymore. I’m tired of seeing America’s next generation being fed a curriculum of politically-correct misinformation, guilt, and shame.

    I was appalled at how some teachers presented American history to my children. My son and daughter learned that Thomas Jefferson had slaves – before they learned that he wrote the document articulating our rights and duties as free people. European settlers killed Native Americans with blankets infected with smallpox, they found out. That allegation upstaged the stories of courage, perseverance, and curiosity that defined the pioneers. While folding paper cranes in the classroom, my children were told that a hundred thousand people died when the atomic bomb was dropped on Japan – but they were not made to understand the moral context of World War II in which the atomic bomb story fit. My children were instructed to equate illegal aliens with legal immigrants, devaluing the story of their own ancestors who came to America through Ellis Island. And, classroom discussions always seemed to cast businessmen as villains, instead of as people to be emulated.

    But

    The chapter about Lindbergh’s flight is really about choosing one’s destiny. The story of Lou Gehrig is really about living a virtuous life. The chapter about Thomas Edison is really about the benefits of business leadership

    We can’t afford to raise a generation of Americans who do not value their country, their heritage, and their place in the world. As Abraham Lincoln said: America is the “last best hope of earth.”

    Please join me! Take some time now to reflect on the past, and to remember our history and our heroes. Bring forth in your mind the real lessons of our history – and share them with your children. Help America’s next generation to hear the voices of the great men and women of the past calling them to greatness.

  14. Mustang says:

    Again, Angel you are spot-on. If we are honest, and there is no reason not to be, our ancestors came to the Americas to take. That is, to take advantage of opportunities that were not available in the “old country,” and in the process of that, they took lands inhabited by aboriginal peoples for thousands of years. European technology more or less ensured victory, but it was never a “given” even through the early 1920s—the last collision with Native Americans. Again, neither the settlers nor the Indians were confused about what was happening, and in that fact, we find the honesty part of conquest — peaceably or otherwise. History is just that . . . and I no more feel bad about what Columbus did to the natives he encountered than I do about the fact that the entire world engaged in the enslavement of human beings from long before the common era.

    Contrast that history with a new, albeit patently dishonest invasion. That is, of people coming to America under the guise of embracing our culture or ideals, even to the extent of falsely swearing an oath of allegiance to the Constitution — when in fact they are only here to institute Shar’ia law and suborn Judeo-Christian values. We can say that the Qu’ran is “up front” about the purpose of Islam, but the people themselves are dishonestly hiding behind our democracy to achieve their conquest.

    I think all of us should celebrate Thanksgiving with a renewed appreciation of why we do it at all — because one never knows when such observances will be outdated, outlawed by a new religious order.

  15. Paul Champagne says:

    Yes, the Indians gave us the gift of tobacco … but we gave them fire water

    I think that may be a wash.

    You are absolutely correct in your assertation that our culture won. Isn’t it great that our culture allows them to practice their culture as much as they want?

  16. Jungle mom says:

    That was great! I love the sarcasm. No one does sarcasm quite like you, Angel!
    I have been traveling the last month and have not had access to the internet, so I have not been around much.

  17. MariesTwoCents says:

    Turkey Genocide LMAO!

  18. Joe Gringo says:

    An early Happy Thanksgiving to you and everyone as well.

    What cities did these Indians live in that we conquered? Oh yah, they didn’t live in cities, they were basically nomads.

    History shows we intiated peace, then we started getting scalped and the game was officially on.

    Angel you can’t speak truthful things like this ! You skew the whole Leftview only knows the “truth” thing.
    To many other points to single out. Great post and DON’T FORGET THE GRAVY !

  20. Bar Kochba says:

    I”m Canadian so I already had Thanksgiving last month. Didn’t you know thta Thanksgiving celebrates genocide- that’s the point of the day, to celebrate killing the Indians! ;) not!

    Great post!

  21. Yankee Doodle says:

    Instead of celebrating the fourth Thursday of November, maybe we should celebrate the eleventh of September. I wonder if that would make them happy….

  22. Yankee Doodle says:

    Excellent comment, Michael Class!

  23. kevin says:

    Great post, made me hungry for turkey though ;)

  24. KKarLmMM says:

    What do turkeys like to eat on Thanksgiving?
    Nothing, they’re already stuffed.

    Why did the turkey cross the road?
    It was the chicken’s day off.

    Q: What’s a turkey’s favorite song?

    A: “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas

    Great post Angel….you never cease to amaze….

    Can you imagine if the Izmolamic diety was a Turkey…Holy cranberries!!!!

  25. Aurora says:

    Nice post, Angel. They’re not only about stamping out the Christian religion, but about stamping out what makes people happy and feel like a community. They’re pretty persistent. I’ll give them that. Let’s make sure we’re just as persistent!

  26. Dwana says:

    This is so depressing. What are we going to do to stop the Left’s relentless assault on our history, heritage, and cullture? On a brighter note, you ought to go to CafePress and put reason number on a t-shirt, Angel. I’m sure it would be a bestseller!

  27. Dwana says:

    That should read reason number one.

  28. Always On Watch says:

    I like turkey all year ’round. ;)

    I love this country, the native-americans or indians, and our forefathers: all of which God gave us. The rest of the world envies our blessings, whether or not they love us is not important. Teach your children to love our blessed USA. Give our sweet Lord all the thanks, and never EVER call it –> Turkey-Day, call it what it is –> Thanksgiving Day!
