Liberals fuck up Thanksgiving

A Liberal Thanksgiving

I sent an e-mail to an in-law, telling him that his genial hockey buddy and Trump supporter friend Johnny was no longer welcome on Thanksgiving.

Democrats have dug in their heels, and in some cases are refusing to sit across the table from relatives who voted for President-elect Donald J. Trump, a man they say stands for things they abhor. -Sabrina Tavernise and Katharine Q. Seelye Go To Site

And while there’s no doubt that all of this advice is well-intentioned, sometimes, when the shit is hitting the fan and your uncle is being a sexist piece of garbage, you have to do something to regain control and remind yourself that you’re a badass bitch who no one can fuck with.

  And there’s no better way to do that than serving an asshole a slice of truly homemade bread...leavened with the yeast of your own vagina.

  But does such a recipe even exist? Yes, it does, thanks to feminist blogger Zoe Stavri, who, after getting a pretty bad yeast infection, had the inspired idea to turn her discomfort into delicious baked goods.

I can’t believe that some folks are nuking Thanksgiving plans with family over an election. Is it really that awful? Are liberals that thick, fragile, and wrong? I guess so. -Matt Vespa Go To Site

Harvard Holiday Placement For

Social Justice

December 2015

Oops.

The “holiday placemats for social justice” advised students on how to talk to their families over the holidays about Syrian refugees, police killings, student activism and the controversy over the “house master” title which the University recently stopped using.

The placemats were issued by the Harvard Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, together with the freshmen dean’s office, and were divided into four sections with potential questions and how to answer them.

Liberal, Character, Racism, Smears, Stereotyping

So what can anti-racist white people do now to help the people of color who are most likely to be targeted and hurt by the Trump administration? SURJ’s answer is one that many white people will find deeply uncomfortable: Talk to their Trump-supporting relatives at Thanksgiving.

  SURJ has released a discussion guide to help people talk to their friends and family about racism, and it’s also offering a text hotline: Anyone who texts SOS to 82623 will receive talking points and, if things get really desperate, a short coaching call.

Also, obviously, the holiday is a racist and nationalist celebration of American manifest destiny, an expression of gratitude for God’s gift of “America” to the (white) people who arrived and took it by force from the (non-white) people who were living there.

"Farmers can mitigate climate change with their wallets. Turkeys don't have wallets, so they don't have any options."

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches and millions of Americans prepare to dine on millions of turkeys, I sat down to write a blog post about the inherent cruelty involved in this annual turkey massacre.

Liberal, Funny, Feminism, Sexism

In the 84-year, 129-character history of the parade, only 10 female characters have ever sailed down the avenues. “Parade balloons are not a trivial issue,” said Long. “Every year millions of young girls eagerly attend Macy’s and other parades, only to look up and see nothing but male characters float by.” Long concluded with a latent call for action: “Hopefully, one day, the parade skies of the United States will be filled with an equal number of male and female characters.”

As climate change brings more unpredictable weather, does Libby's have a plan in place to ensure future pumpkin harvests?

It is reserved by history and the intent of “the founders” as the supremely white American holiday, the most ghoulish event on the national calendar. No Halloween of the imagination can rival the exterminationist reality that was the genesis, and remains the legacy, of the American Thanksgiving. It is the most loathsome, humanity-insulting day of the year – a pure glorification of racist barbarity.

Democrat, Hate, Character, Racism, Narrative, Oops, Tolerance, Diversity, Arrogance

Buena Vista Township Clerk Gloria Platko is resisting demands that she step down after another local official, Interim Township Manager Dexter Mitchell (a Democrat), taped a phone conversation in which Platko referred to Township Supervisor Dwayne Parker (also a Democrat) as “an arrogant nigger.” The 63 year-old Democrat later apologized for the “slip of the tongue,” but shockingly insisted that her use of the slur doesn’t make her racist, because she has “eaten Thanksgiving dinner with black friends at their house.”

Katelyn Crist, a writer based in Charlotte, N.C., who recently faced criticism after writing about her decision to vote for Trump, tweeted that Trump supporters uninvited to Thanksgiving are welcome at her house. -Mary Bowerman Go To Site

Liberal, Hate, Character, Narrative, Greed, Terrorism, Communism, Theft, Murder

Author Humberto Fontova points to evidence that Guevara, the chief instigator of Castro’s revolutionary efforts overseas, was involved in a November 1962 terrorist plot to use 1,200 pounds of TNT to blow up Macy’s, Gimbels, Bloomingdale’s, and Grand Central Station on the day after Thanksgiving, the busiest shopping day of the year. Such an act could have rivaled 9/11 in its destruction.

Politically Correct Thanksgiving Pageant

November 2016

Liberals - they're not laughing with you. They're laughing at you.

At Media Matters, we know how to deal with right-wing lies better than anyone, so we put together a Thanksgiving Survival Guide so you’re ready to respond with the truth should you feel the need. Go To Site

White America embraced Thanksgiving because a majority of that population glories in the fruits, if not the unpleasant details, of genocide and slavery and feels, on the whole, good about their heritage: a cornucopia of privilege and national power. -The Black Commentator Go To Site

This Thursday, folks across the country will indulge in one of America’s most enduring and self-satisfying traditions: the injuring of Native American people and the destruction of land for financial gain. -Madeleine Davies, Jezebel Go To Site
