    As for that first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrims were a bunch of incompetent religious nerds, trying to go to Virginia, got lost, ended up in Massachusetts just as the frigid New England winter was setting in. These incompetents had no idea how to survive and would have all died out if the Wampanoag Tribe had not helped them build shelters and showed them how to grow local foods

    After they had survived one year, the Pilgrims decided to hold a feast of Thanksgiving, to thank god, not the Wampanoag who had actually saved them. They did not intend to invite the Indigenous Americans who had saved their sorry asses.

    The Wampanoag tribe members saw them out hunting with their pathetic lack of skills, and invited themselves to the feat. Shocked at how little the Pilgrims had, the Wampanoag brought a bounteous feast of waterfowl, venison, ham, lobster, clams, berries, fruit, pumpkin, squash and unspecified fowl (no specific mention of turkey), as described in a letter from Pilgrim Edward Winslow, a signatory of the Mayflower Compact.

    The Pilgrims would soon betray them with the first rounds of genocide.

    Many surviving Wampanoag descendants today remember Thanksgiving the way the Jews remember the Holocaust (Shoah).

    Indigenous Americans standing on shore watching the first European ships arriving must have had an ominous sense of foreboding. They should have built the damn wall!

    You know Sue? If you push that “Debbie Downer” off that Roof, then EVERYBODY will have a Merry Christmas. And then He can “mourn” all the way to the pavement.

    Just Saying…….,

    Lemont’s condemnation of Thanksgiving would carry a bit more ‘truthiness’ if he hadn’t gorged himself on the meal and leftovers first…

    I believe Columbus day is already the national day of mourning for indigenous Americans.

    Why not make October 12 the national day of mourning and repentance? Columbus was all about torture and genocide.

    So Lemont, you’re proposing on Thanksgiving that we say “Good mourning” instead of “Good morning”?

    The real irony of Thanksgiving is that the crazy pilgrims were thanking the imaginary being who, if they were being consistent, would’ve been responsible for all their suffering in the first place, instead of the actual human beings who were the only ones who really helped them at all. Indeed, your fellow human beings are the only ones who will ever help you!

    The “native Americans” were busy slaughtering one another long before Europeans came along with a deadlier technology. They not only slaughtered one another, some participated in human sacrifice, headhunting, and even cannibalism. History is history, no matter how one tries to spin it with political correctness.

    Lemont should fast for Mourngiving. So should my beloved Susan since her ancestors were in on it as well as Lemont’s.

    When useful idiots finalize the denigration and destruction of all great American traditions like Thanksgiving, Christmas, marriage between a man and woman and the like..then it will be “Mourning in America”. Godbless America. Down with the propaganda-peddling haters of America.
