Colin Kaepernick Sulks Through “Unthanksgiving” Again

Today, while real football players play football, grotesquely overpaid (thanks Nike!) professional moonbat Colin Kaepernick gripes about how much he hates America. He was doing the same thing on Thursday, while the rest of us celebrated Thanksgiving. Just like last year, Kaepernick celebrated “Unthanksgiving” instead.

Via Fox News:

On Thursday, Kaepernick spoke at the “Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony,” also known as “Unthanksgiving,” on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, California.

So as to spread the misery of his festering hatred for this great country, he sent out a tweet accusing America of having “stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people.”

Maybe he would like to make amends by giving his own property to random Indians and then relocating to Africa, since he ostentatiously identifies as black. But somehow I doubt this will happen.

Kaepernick also retweeted an article by Washington Post writer Christopher Petrella who indicated Thanksgiving was racist.

Because of course it is. Everything that isn’t diseased or dysfunctional is racist.

Why Moonbats Aren’t Grateful on Thanksgiving

Dave Morrison theorizes on why moonbats not only don’t feel grateful to be American, but actually try to destroy what makes that something to be grateful for:

War on Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is too wholesome and quintessentially American not to be despised by moonbats, who denounce it on Cultural Marxist and environmental extremist grounds, as Mark Dice documents:

Moonbats will lose the War on Christmas. They will lose the War on Thanksgiving too.

Hong Kongers Celebrate Thanksgiving

You don’t have to be American to be thankful for America on Thanksgiving. You might live in Hong Kong.

Via the Washington Examiner:

On Wednesday, Trump signed legislation that required the State Department to do an annual review of the relationship between Hong Kong and China to ensure that China does not overreach and hamper with Hong Kong’s autonomy.

This required some integrity on Trump’s part. He is counting on a healthy economy to overcome the media’s overwhelming opposition and get reelected. Securing a trade deal with China would help. Irritating the ChiComs will not make this easier; now they are growling about “firm countermeasures.”

The legislation may have upset China, but the people of Hong Kong were thrilled. Thousands took to the streets with American flags in a “Thanksgiving rally” out of appreciation for the legislation.

America is not only a place and a people, but a principle. One thing we have to be thankful for is that our government has not abandoned this principle to appease communists.

History of Thanksgiving and Franksgiving

Thanksgiving was not always celebrated on the fourth Thursday in November. Moonbattery.com sponsor Ammo.com provides some history. Turns out partisan division has been with us for some time:

[Abraham Lincoln] set the day as the last Thursday in November. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt changed the day between 1939 and 1941, which was highly controversial. The days were called “Franksgiving.” Roosevelt changed the date because retailers communicated to him through the Retail Dry Goods Association and the Secretary of Commerce, that the late date of Thanksgiving that year (the last day of November) might negatively impact retail sales. It was considered bad form to put up Christmas decorations or put on Christmas sales before Thanksgiving.

Nowadays, Christmas competes with Halloween.

The change caused a number of problems, not least of all holiday travel plans. Football teams around the nation played before empty stadiums because they couldn’t change their schedule. Many games were cancelled. In what is a familiar scenario to anyone who has followed 21st-century politics, Democrats narrowly supported Franksgiving (52 to 48), Republicans widely despised it (79 to 21) and most of America didn’t like it (62 to 38).

Some states celebrated Franksgiving, others celebrated “Republican Thanksgiving.” A few states celebrated both.

A report from the Department of Commerce issued in 1941, found that there was no difference in retail sales due to the day of the month. Indeed, barely more than a third of all retailers even observed Franksgiving.

Arbitrary decrees accomplishing nothing constructive were a hallmark of FDR’s domestic policy.

In 1942, Congress set Thanksgiving to the fourth Thursday of November, where it has remained, serving as an annual reminder of how grateful we should be to live in this great country.

HuffPost: Thanksgiving Is Offensive to Climate

Don’t bother making Thanksgiving plans this year. The woke social engineers at HuffPost have determined that the holiday is offensive to the climate:

A recent report from National Geographic and the Climate Action Tracker found that we are far from reaching our 2020 goal of lower emissions. …

With that in mind, one wonders: How much damage are we doing with our epic Thanksgiving meal every year?

The answer is literally none. But that’s no reason for moonbats to forego badgering.

HuffPost says that to be righteous, we must stay home and eat plants.

Meat and meat byproducts (cheese, butter and heavy cream, for example) have a larger environmental footprint than plant-based ingredients. According to research done by Carnegie Mellon University, the carbon footprint of a 16-pound turkey creates a total of 34.2 pounds of CO2 — the same amount produced by turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, rolled biscuits and apple pie combined.

Not all plants are equally enviropious. HuffPost says we should eat pumpkin, because this will result in less of the harmless CO2 that makes it be too warm according to liberal dogma.

Imagine how bonkers you would have to be to believe that it is morally righteous to eat pumpkin so as to make the November weather cooler, and you will understand the futility of trying to reason with moonbats.

Antifa Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, an Antifa goon who earlier tried to assault a regular American with a metal rod can be thankful for asphalt. It’s softer than concrete. The rest of us can be thankful for a refreshing laugh:

You can see why they prefer to gang up on patriots who are outnumbered.

Charlie Brown’s Racist Thanksgiving

Tokenism backfires yet again, as Charlie Brown is discovered to have participated in a racist Thanksgiving dinner. Last night,

ABC aired the classic animated Peanuts special A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and while many fans tuned in for the warmth of nostalgia to kick off their holiday season, many came away with a less than fuzzy feeling when it came to how one specific character was treated.

The black character Franklin got a whole side of the table to himself. They must have been shunning him. Also, he had to sit on a lawn chair, unlike the other characters. It appears that back in the dark days of 1973, even cartoon characters of color were oppressed:

This is why all cultural relics of even the recent past must be destroyed or at the very least edited carefully to remove all thoughtcrime.

The beauty of antiracism as a political weapon is that you can find racism anywhere. You just have to know how to look.

College Students Explain Why Thanksgiving Is Racist

Most college student can tell you that Thanksgiving is racist. But could they tell you why? No — not even at ultra-moonbatty University of Oregon, which hosted an event entitled, “Thanks but No Thanks-giving.” But it’s fun watching them try:

It is encouraging that at least some students still understand that the purpose of Thanksgiving is to remember to be thankful, not to hate our country because our ancestors were almost one-tenth as brutal as the savages they encountered. Maybe there is hope that Thanksgiving will survive a generation that is more entitled than thankful.

Colin Kaepernick Celebrates Un-Thanksgiving

Having ruined the NFL for its fans by revealing many of the players as America-hating leftist thugs and the people running the league as either moonbats or pusillanimous weenies, Colin Kaepernick has moved on to other pursuits. While regular Americans devoted a day to gratitude yesterday, Kaepernick spent it wallowing in his characteristic theatrical bitterness:

Kaepernick received honorary eagle feathers as he attended the annual Indigenous People’s Sunrise Gathering on Alcatraz Island on Thursday.

The event, also known as “Un-Thanksgiving Day,” celebrates the lengthy occupation of the infamous prison island by Native Americans between 1969 and 1971.

That occupation was a farce, infiltrated by drug-addled hippies, splintered by power struggles, and ending when the federal government finally stopped wringing its hands and forcibly evacuated the last 15 occupiers — four of them children — from the island.

Kaepernick reminds us that it isn’t only black lives that matter. Indian lives matter too. The only lives that don’t matter are white lives, and even whites can make their lives matter by converting to Islam or indulging in sexual perversion. The ideology devised in academia and regurgitated by tools like Kaepernick is not about police brutality or dispossessed Indians. Cultural Marxism has one purpose: to destroy America by exploiting outlier groups to demonize the core population and delegitimize the culture.

The Truth About the First Thanksgiving

The only way to destroy America is to turn it against itself. As part of the effort to accomplish this, leftists have been twisting American history into an ugly lie, in order to demonize and delegitimize our country in our own eyes. We fight back by remembering that our country is good and that our history is good. Michael Medved counters malevolent propaganda by reminding us what really happened on the first Thanksgiving:

True enough, there is far more to be gained from gratitude than from guilt.

Newsweek Advises How to Have a “Woke” Thanksgiving

Moonbats hate Thanksgiving even more than Christmas, because it has patriotic as well as Christian significance. Fortunately for them, Newsweek offers guidance on how to endure the holiday by having a “woke” Thanksgiving:

1. Center the struggles facing Native American communities.

That is, preach at your relatives that America does not deserve to exist because it displaced a Stone Age population, the remnants of which are still oppressed to this day. For example, radical members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have been discouraged from activities intended to prevent us from distributing the oil we need to keep the lights on and our houses warm.

2. Volunteer at a local food drive or soup kitchen—and then keep doing it.

This sounds fine, but the point here is to assert that there is no bounty in America except for among the hated “rich.” Being woke means pretending that a large segment of the population is starving thanks to inequality, capitalism, racism, et cetera.

3. Climate change is real, so don’t waste food.

According to liberal ideology, eating turkey makes it be too hot out, thereby causing a long list of terrible problems. No really, they believe that; it has to do which fossil fuels being used to transport the food. Therefore, you must clean your plate not with pleasure but from duty, and feel miserably guilty about every bite.

4. The NFL hid the truth about concussion for decades. Don’t let them get away with it.

Here’s something moonbats and countermoonbats can agree on: don’t watch the NFL. Countermoonbats shun the NFL because it won’t forbid the players to indulge in theatrical anti-American antics while the Star-Spangled Banner is performed. Moonbats don’t watch it because the game is too violent, and players are oppressed by a conspiracy to hide the truth about concussions.

5. The problem is much bigger than Donald Trump.

Don’t forget to tell everyone else at the Thanksgiving dinner table that it isn’t just Trump who is awful. There are others who want to reduce taxes, which is horrible, because it will “benefit the rich.” A dutiful progressive wants only to punish the rich for producing the wealth represented by the bounty on the table.

Being a wretched Grinch isn’t just for Christmas.

The Nation Hates Thanksgiving More Than Ever This Year

The NFL has driven a large percentage of its fans away by encouraging the showy anti-American antics of players motivated by far-left Black Lives Matter ideology. You might think Roger Goodell & Co. would at least get a pat on the head from radical leftism’s flagship publication. But no. The Nation is enraged because the Redskins are playing on Thanksgiving:

That means as we finish our food, slip into sweatpants, and to gather around the television to watch NFL football, a tradition only slightly less ubiquitous than pumpkin pie, the R*dskins slur— a name that exists only because of genocide and displacement—will have center stage.

They spell it “R*dskins” because according to the Thought Police, the term is an obscenity now that it has joined “squaw” and “Chinaman” on the growing list of innocuous words they forbid us to utter.

Refer to George Orwell’s 1984 for details on how totalitarians control thought by limiting vocabulary. The main objective here is simply to demonstrate their dominance. Forbidding the word “Redskins” is like the power rituals that take place in prison. Later they might declare that all words beginning with the letter “R” are racist — just to demonstrate that they could make us stop using them.

The idea that naming a team after Indians insults them is preposterous. It is an honor. You don’t name a sports team after something you despise. Imagine a team named the Washington Moonbats.

The Redskins playing on Thanksgiving is particularly galling to progressives because the holiday not only celebrates America, which they hate, and God, whom they hate, but also references friendly relations between settlers and Indians. True, the Stone Age savages who inhabited the Western Hemisphere before civilization arrived often inflicted horrific, pointless violence on settlers — raping, mutilating, murdering, and enslaving the innocent, looting and burning down settlements — but according to tradition, on the original Thanksgiving there was no savagery but only thanks and brotherhood.

This conflicts with the liberal narrative, according to which the pilgrims were evil, destroying Eden by poisoning the noble savages with Christianity, property rights, manufacturing, medicine, representative democracy, advanced agriculture, horse-riding, and so forth. Thus was America born in sin.

While we are giving thanks this Thanksgiving season, let’s remember the patriotic Navajo code talkers who helped us win WWII. Unsurprisingly, it looks like some of them are Redskins fans:
