It’s that time of year again.
Time to gather around someone’s house and head up the road to visit the in-laws that you really don’t want to see, hang-out with or listen to all day.
Why are we doing this?
Does anyone even know or are we all just glad to get the day off?
What is the REAL story of Thanksgiving?
Wikipedia: In the 1530′s The King of England Henry #8 wanted to reform the church and cut back on the number of holidays and celebrations. The holidays were to be replaced by specially called Days of Fasting or Days of Thanksgiving. There used to be 95 Church holidays, plus 52 Sundays, when people were required to attend church. King Henry Ocho wanted to change that.
There’s only 52 weeks in a year. That meant church attendance was required EVERY-WEEK for British “subjects”.
100 years later Pilgrims and Puritans finally bucked the obsessive control of the King and fled, bringing their English traditions with them across the Atlantic ocean east to New England.
When they arrived they found a thriving community of natural real Americans but they being the conquering British type decided it was better to trick the people who helped them survive and commit genocide against them as a thank you gift.
It wasn’t long before these crazed insane lunatics started accusing each other of being witches and then they started systematically killing people in what was called the Salem witch trials. Basically if someone said you were a witch, that was it you were dead.
150 years after that on November 26, 1789, George Washington the first president of the United States declared “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favours of Almighty God”.
I’m trying to figure out which favor is he talking about?
1. Free Labor?
Yes, the slave trade was thriving in the days of George Washington as many of the original signers of the declaration of independence were in fact OWNERS of men. They were literally fighting for THEIR freedom while simultaneously holding other people as their possessions. Talk about insanity. Then to make matters worse the first president says thanks for the favor. WTF?
There was already a nation of people thriving on this land who had been here for longer than King Henry’s family has been in England. Now that they have all been killed off that is something to be thankful for? I don’t get it? So we should be thankful that the population of the Navajo, Cherokee, Sioux, Chippewa, Choctaw, Apache, Pueblo, Iroquois, Creek, Blackfeet has been decimated?
Two hundred twenty three years later
United States President Barack Obama is expected to speak at a thanksgiving themed press conference where traditionally the life of a turkey is spared. The president traditionally gives the bird a pardon. The people in the middle east are like damn, what about us?
Here’s 3 ways to make HIS story OURs this Thanksgiving:
1. Tell the truth about what happened. They say shame the devil tell the truth. The truth is America was founded by a pack of crazy mofos willing to destroy others way of life in order to create a new one for themselves. They ran from the ruler of their land and stole someone else’s.
2. Tell the truth about what is happening. The crazy mofo’s of today have continued the same conquest activities from centuries ago. Instead of the native Americans in North America it’s the native people of the middle east that have been labeled
SAVAGES TERRORISTS and have been scheduled for GENOCIDE LIBERATION. The same technique is used in both superior weaponry, firearms vs. the native Americans and drones vs. the people in the middle east.
3. Tell the truth about what will happen. Once people accept what their eyes have been showing them they will realize that the only thing that is happening in America is old school colonial imperialism. It’s not that complicated its just the Christopher Columbus combo.
PS: This is why the role of African-Americans or those who are decedents of slaves in the United States must stand up and tell the truth. Telling the truth is the best way to honor our ancestors and it is the best way to stop this cycle from continuing further on another NEW land in the 21st century. They don’t go along with it when OJ Simpson comes up, why go along with it when Thanksgiving comes up?
PPS: What does anonymous have to do with Thanksgiving? Again from Wikipedia. An unusual annual Day of Thanksgiving began in 1606 following the failure of the Gunpowder Plot in 1605, and developed into Guy Fawkes Day.
What do you plan do do this Thursday? I decided to contribute to a local church who is hosting a free meal for the public.
