Thanksgiving and Other Pagan Holidays and Monuments, THANKS BUT NO THANKS!
Our forefathers weren't the
Pilgrims. We didn't land on
Plymouth Rock; the rock was landed on us.
Thanksgiving is a day when we Americans celebrate taking advantage of Indians, stealing their land and destroying their culture - in order to obtain trinkets, help God civilize people and make manifest destiny a national policy.
This is the stuff fairy tales are made of, as I remember growing up. The sad story about the Pilgrims escaping religious persecution who found their way from England to Massachusetts in 1620, was a staple of everyone´s upbringing.
Once there, and aided by the friendly Indians, the Pilgrims survived in a new and harsh environment, and celebrated with a harvest feast in 1621 following their first winter. But in reality the persecuted soon became the persecutors – and soon those same Pilgrims would be killing off the native population to grab more land.
The pattern would repeat itself across the continent until between 95 and 99 percent of American Indians had been exterminated and the rest were left to assimilate into white society or die off on reservations, out of the view of refined society.
I have to give credit to author Robert Jensen when he suggests that instead of gorging ourselves in celebration of false history “we should [rather] atone for the genocide that was incited -- and condoned -- by the very men we idolize as our 'heroic' founding fathers”.
I just wish some of my ancestors had seen the writing on the wall. I can only respect the so-called primitive natives who killed an American preacher who was intent on bringing what was called the world’s most isolated tribe to Christianity.
John Allen Chau, 26, was killed by the natives and buried in the sand shortly after setting foot on India’s North Sentinel Island, which is part of the Andaman and Nicobar archipelago in the Bay of Bengal. I suspect these Stone Age primitives may have had foresight; they were merely taking precautions to protect themselves from disease, enslavement and exploitation, not Christianity.
Just think what the long-term results would have been if Europeans had been turned back as soon as they attempted to land in North and South America—and fed them to the fish. I am fairly confident that many historians in Mexico would claim that Mexico was turned into Texas by the same flying rocks. Mexicans are only too aware that America came along and landed on them too, and now they want to toss some of the pebbles from those rocks back.
New World or Rogue State
Most people I know, especially Americans, think the US has gone rogue, and is now threat to freedom. This is yet one more reason to escape it. Most people do not trust the government. Oddly, they will still sometimes claim it's a "free country" - but I can't find anything free about it.
Freedom stayed there for a long time, but finally left. If freedom stayed in one country forever, everybody would have resettled there long ago. I have much more freedom in the crazy county of Georgia than in the US—having spent most of the last 25 years out of the US in a semi self-imposed exile.
As for Christians and their Pagan holidays and honored devils, Americans even have the audacity to celebrate what they did to the Indians, Thanksgiving and even Columbus Day.
But there is some justice in the region, as back in 1991 (and after 200 years of enslavement of the Haitian people by outsiders), as Norm Chomsky describes, “an angry crowd toppled the statue of Christopher Columbus in Port-au-Prince and threw it in the sea," protesting "the ravages of colonialism" under "a long line of despots" from Columbus to Duvalier, and even referring to today's rulers, who have reinstated Duvalier savagery under various forms, even under the guise of UN missions.
I always liked the speech of Malcolm X, the black civil rights leader who told it like it was. He didn’t want to buy into the great melting pot theory of what it means to be an American.
He described with great insight the plight of former slaves, “when we say so-called Negro that's pointing out what we aren't, but it isn't telling us what we are. We are Africans, and we happen to be in America; we are not Americans.”
We are a people who formerly were Africans who were kidnapped and brought to America. Our forefathers weren't the Pilgrims. We didn't land on Plymouth Rock; the rock was landed on us. ...
Americans make all kinds of fanfare over so-called religious holidays, something to do with a pine tree, and a fat bearded man wearing a red suit who flies in a sleigh pulled by flying magic reindeer giving out presents – saying all this somehow represents the birth of Christ.
God help them... this is the opinion you get when you cross a Jew with an American Indian. I still carry my Native American great-grandmother’s high cheek bones in my phenotype—and her good looks.
And now there is the matter of those wanting to start CRYING Fake News, such as lame politicians and Facebook. They want to remove from public view all those writers who attempt to report accurate news.
Soon all we will have are propaganda outlets which tell you what the government and BIG business wants. We will all then become a herd of sheep with wool over our eyes.
Everyone is being sold down the river yet again!
Facebook has blocked two out of three of my media outlets from having their links shared, so I must be on the right side of history.
