Thanksgiving, of course, is a uniquely American holiday celebrating how English settlers and Native Americans overcame cultural and linguistic barriers to share a meal and initiate a worldwide model for tolerance and cooperation. Oversimplified? Maybe, but it’s mainly correct.
And it is surely more accurate than proclaiming Thanksgiving to be about murder, greed, and bigotry.
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.

The Howard Zinn-ification of American history has now been fully embraced by America’s institutions.
It’s not just on college and university campuses where the late Marxist professor’s anti-American history is popular.
An anonymous tip to The Daily Signal on Monday revealed that a video depicting the Pilgrims as one-dimensional oppressors was shown to students at Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland, before Thanksgiving.

A letter sent to the District of Columbia Public Schools community offers resources on “decolonizing your Thanksgiving,” including by making a “land acknowledgement” during dinner. The letter was sent on Nov. 18 by Lewis Ferebee, the chancellor of D.C. Public Schools...
But after expressing gratitude “for the hard work of all our staff, and the support of our families” and imploring those eligible to get a COVID-19 vaccine booster shot, Ferebee says Thanksgiving is “a day that can be difficult for many to celebrate as we reflect on the history of the holiday and the horrors inflicted on our indigenous populations.”
“If you celebrate, our Equity team has shared resources for how you can consider decolonizing your Thanksgiving,” Ferebee wrote.
Harvard Holiday Placement For
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.

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.

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.

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.”

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.

We apologize deeply for the email that was sent today. $14.92 was our average donation amount this week. It was an oversight on our part to not make the connection to a year of colonization, conquest, and genocide for Indigenous people, especially before Thanksgiving.
The Los Angeles Unified School District, the second-largest public school district in the nation with more than 640,000 K-12 students enrolled, discouraged students from celebrating Thanksgiving this year, instead offering an alternative holiday in its place.
The LAUSD Office of Human Relations, Diversity & Equity prepared a number of presentations called “Advisory Lessons” that push left-wing beliefs and are intended to be shown to students. The website also describes the need for teachers to talk to students about “power, privilege, oppression, and resistance.”

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.”

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.
