Title: How Much Longer Will Thanksgiving Be a National Holiday?

This is a legitimate question. According to the New York Times’ 1619 Project, according to what is taught in US universities and public schools, and according to what the American left and those influenced by them believe, to celebrate Thanksgiving is to celebrate the racism of white supremacy. As this belief is growing and not shrinking, how much longer before Thanksgiving becomes a day of atonement for racist sins?

Erasing national holidays is a way of erasing a culture. As Thanksgiving grows increasingly offensive to people of color, as Easter, once a Christian celebration of the Resurrection, disappears into baskets of candy for children, and as the celebration of Christmas is increasingly confined to the home, the three major holidays in the United States rot away, leaving the culture unsupported by public celebrations.

It is the total failure of the American intellectual class not to see this.

The same cultural deracination or dissolution is occurring in Great Britain. A recent poll found that almost half of young British see their country as “structurally racist,” and think their country was founded on racism. 38 percent want Churchill’s statue removed from Parliament Square. Six in ten school graduates say they were taught critical race theory. British youth are also showing growing alienation from free speech, with 29 per cent of 18 to 24-year-olds saying that JK Rowling should be dropped by her publishers because of her views toward transgendered people. It was left to an immigrant-invader, Dr Samir Shah, to stand up for British values such as free speech, tolerance, debate, and democracy: What British schools are teaching, she said, “runs against many Enlightenment values,” leading to a “world in which tolerance is being replaced by intolerance and a fear of speaking one’s mind.”

Does it strike you as odd that Samir Shah, a member of the British Government’s Commission on Race and Ethnic Disparities, has more appreciation for a society based in civil liberty than many a white liberal British ethnic don at Oxford and Cambridge? Whereas the argument is powerful that a nation, as distinct from a geographical entity, such as an empire, can be based only in ethnic and cultural homogeneity, I continually encounter immigrant-invaders who have more commitment to the civil liberty guaranteed by the US Constitution than do white American liberals. For many American white liberals, civil liberty means abortion (murder), oppression and censorship of views of which liberals disapprove, prosecution of politicians, such as Trump, of whom liberals disapprove, and misinterpretation and reinterpretation of the US Constitution to support their liberal-left agendas. Many American white liberals and it seems every member of the Woke left have no qualms about stuffing a gage in our mouths. But firebrand immigrant- invaders, such as Ilhan Omar and Ocasio-Cortez, don’t want gags in their mouths.

Perhaps we do need a replacement–a replacement of all white liberals and all white Woke leftists. Certainly, civil liberty and civility have no future in their hands.

When are leftists going to tear down the Great Pyramid? -- because it was probably built by slaves.

Somebody pointed out the dilemma in that: Blacks have lately asserted that the ancient Egyptians were black. So who were the slaves and who were their slave masters? (Maybe the slaves were Kanye's ancient black Jews?)

the ancient Egyptians were black

That can easily be disproven by the hieroglyphs. The difference in the races was clearly depicted by the colorings that were used. The Egyptiana were colored red which mra t they were sun burned and of a fair complexion. ;)

Damnit, there were no slaves around to whip today, so we just ate some turkey, which I'm sure my Mom paid for. I can't picture her running a plantation, forcing Kunta and Kizzie to raise turkeys and cranberries. The sheer thought of Kunta trying to harvest cranberries gives me the giggles.

Yep, the cranberries would definitely be a problem. But Chicken George could easily have had a turkey venture going on the side.

Chickens can go straight to market locally, turkeys are seasonal.

This is your opportunity to get in the ground floor, for just $50,000 you can buy into an empty plot of land in the food desert of Oakland, CA, where me and my as yet unnamed associates are planning to begin cultivation of olive groves any day now.

Would a cotton co-op outside of Memphis be feasible? Hire some locals, all that. The workers would own the company, and receive a dividend for each unit they produce. Revolutionary stuff here, I think we could turn corporate capitalism on its head with ideas like this. Fight the power! :)

Only the males. The females were depicted as white skinned.
