Happy Thanksgiving

May you all have a warm and fulfilling Thanksgiving surrounded by the ones you love (and hopefully love you).

And just so as to not leave the day without some controversial topic to discuss… the correct pronunciation is THANKSgiving – not thanksGIVING. The emphasis is on THANKS. Prove me wrong.

    Thanksgiving Day is here, and as is the fashion, it’s taking a beating.

    “What is Thanksgiving to Indigenous People? ‘A Day of Mourning,’” writes the onetime daily Bible of American mass culture, USA Today.

    The Washington Post fused a clickhole headline format with white guilt to create, “This tribe helped the Pilgrims survive for their first Thanksgiving. They still regret it 400 years later.”

    Even the pundits who didn’t rummage in the past in search of reasons for Americans to flog themselves this week found some in the future, a la the Post’s climate-change take on Turkey Day menus: “What’s on the Thanksgiving table in a hotter, drier world?”

    MSNBC meanwhile kept us all festive by reminding us, with regard to the now-infamous Pilgrims, that “Instead of bringing stuffing and biscuits, those settlers brought genocide and violence”:

    I guess we can be thankful for crazy leftists insulting Thanksgiving….to give us appropriate contrast and context what selfish babies look like as adults.
