Thanksgiving is an evil, exploitative holiday and it should be banned for its cruelty to the turkey and to human beings and here are 5 reasons why:
a) It’s Racist! What other reason do you need to shut down this abomination, after all,the Europeans came to these shores and exploited the native population.
Dan Brook, PhD: Cal-Davis: On Thanksgiving Day, we give thanks. We give thanks for being the invader, the exploiter, the dominator, the greedy, the gluttonous, the colonizer, the thief, indeed the genocidaire, rather than on the other side of imperialism’s zero-sum murderous game. As Mark Twain points out in his War Prayer, wishing and being thankful for one’s own success and victory is, at the very same time, wishing and being thankful for another’s defeat and destruction. Do we want to make these kinds of wishes and give these kinds of thanks?
b) It promotes Obesity. is there any day of the year more gluttonous than Thanksgiving. It’s full on and sheer promotion and celebration of over-eating should be stopped.
Be responsible to you, your family and everyone’s health:
c) And what about the poor that can’t afford this gluttonous parade? How fair is it to them ?? You have that 20lb Turkey, what do they have, a Swanson frozen dinner- that’s not very healthy? That’s just not fair and we need Government to step in to redistribute that wealth so that everyone can enjoy this gluttonous day. Oh wait, a minute… 🙂
“The Republicans and the Tea Party have done such a good job of scaring and fooling ordinary Americans that a lot of them have simply given up their hope for a better today in exchange for a false hope for the future.” (HuffPo)
d) “Black Friday” really? didn’t we already touch on it’s racist roots but now Capitalist gluttony has to make the day after this abomination a racist, capitalist greed fest too. And the capital slave drivers make their employees work on Thanksgiving too! How greedy are these people and how much are you programmed by them to spend money you probably don’t have on new shiny bobbles dangled in front of you as a “great deal”.
Not only has this country been stolen from first nations under fists of genocide for hundreds of years through violence and colonial oppression, but the holiday alleging to commemorate the pilgrims’ gratitude to Native Americans has cast away even that illusion for the sake of gluttony, blind consumerism, and capitalism. One cannot simply stay home and enjoy the holiday if one is not able to get whatever one wants, and at a whopping deal! (Liberal America.com)
I grew up 25 miles from a Thanksgiving mecca of Thanksgiving & Holiday gluttony and capitalism: Frankenmuth, Michigan — http://www.frankenmuth.org/
e) Then think of the senseless and cruel slaughter of all those turkeys. It’s a day dedicated to slaughter. Europeans slaughtered the Native Americans, now we slaughter turkeys in on big gluttonous massacre. I mean really, raising turkeys just for slaughter…
“More than 45 million of these fascinating birds are killed to disgrace Thanksgiving tables each year. Regarded by many as little more than a holiday centerpiece, turkeys are as varied in personality as dogs and cats. They relish having their feathers stroked and like to chirp, cluck, and gobble along to their favorite tunes. This year, give turkeys something to be thankful for—pledge to go vegan and leave them off your plate.“-PeTA
So think like a Leftist and enjoy your racist, capitalist, oppressive, gluttonous monument to needless slaughter… 🙂
This sarcasm brought to you by ME. 🙂
Happy Thanksgiving. Hug a Leftist, it will confuse them. 🙂
