It’s a holiday whose sole purpose is to bring families together and give thanks for all that we have. Naturally, the left hate everything about it. Imagine that.
During a The Cross Connection Tiffany introduced guest Gyasi Ross, a self-proclaimed Native American who claimed that “the mythology of Thanksgiving closely mirrors the mythology of America.”
Of course, Ross dove right into the race adding, “That mythology is the image that white Americans love to see for themselves. White settlers come to a strange land in good faith bringing something of great value that enriches the people who are already here. The Natives also bring something of immense value — equal exchange. That closely mimics the pathology of white America. It is how America wants to see itself.”
Thanksgiving is an exclusively American holiday but what’s not exclusive about it is the race of the people who celebrate it. Ross’s claim that it’s a ‘white’ holiday is simply ridiculous and reaching, in my opinion.
Ross continues by saying genicide is the theme for the holiday and claims that it still takes place today, ” Instead of bringing stuffing and biscuits, those settlers brought genocide and violence. That genocide and violence is still on the menu as state-sponsored violence against Native and black Americans is commonplace. And violent private white supremacy is celebrated and subsidized. From Stonechild Chiefstick to Mike Brown to Renee Davis to Breonna Taylor to Eric Garner, indigenous and black people are still being murdered by those paid to protect us.”
The Cross-Ross combo isn’t the only leftists spuing hatred for a holiday built around love, values, and family. Joy Reid did a segment stating that celebrating Thanksgiving is supporting racism—Imagine that.
In 2017, a Bustle piece on how to do Thanksgiving advised its nervous young female readers to “acknowledge the national day of mourning,” “take time to reflect on lives lost” and “not use culturally appropriative decorations.” You also must “avoid any crafts or decorations that feed into the Pilgrim myth.” So it’s appropriation to honor my own freaking culture?
Last week, a macaroni-and-cheese recipe in Eater began with a disclaimer: “Thanksgiving traces its origins to an uneasy, temporary alliance between 17th-century English settlers and members of the Wampanoag Confederacy. This year, Eater is choosing to acknowledge that history in our coverage of the holiday.”
The Washington Post informs us, “Just as Native American activists have demanded the removal of Christopher Columbus statues . . . they have long objected to the popular portrayal of Thanksgiving.”
The bottom line here is that the left hates Thanksgiving and has dedicated way too much time to spreading their hate to their audience. I just hope that while they’re spreading their anti-American message they take pause and recognize that they’re only able to do so because they live in a country that allows free speech.
