Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, November 27, 2019

Before we inevitably arrive at the alleged war on Christmas this holiday season, we've first got to tackle the ... war on Thanksgiving? Which is supposedly a thing now, too. At least according to President Donald Trump.

We will fight Thanksgiving and Christmas in air, one the land and on the sea, we shall never surrender!

This isn't over. We will collect ourselves and pool our resources into the War on New Year's. With no New Year, there can't be any Thanksgiving or Christmas!

MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA #2019forever

I'm thinking of torturing a turkey, cooking it under tenderized and stuffing its innards with bread material. We'll show those damn birds to keep their gobble-gobble to themselves or else!

Viva la revolucion!

Trump says this crap at his rallies because he knows many of his strongest supporters are morons who will believe it.

What the hell are these sacks of dung talking about? Fox "News" and their pet parrot Donald Trump spend their entire waking lives lying about the liberal bogeyman in order to give their semi-literate followers perpetual ------ of loathing. I hate to waste a good ------, but there is no lefty plot to change the name of Thanksgiving.

Trump defending Thanksgiving is like Hitler defending Jews. Trump has never been thankful for anything and Hitler murdered millions of Jews.

"I think that Thanksgiving has been misconstrued a lot, especially in textbooks. It's kind of just based off of the genocide of indigenous people and I don't really think that we actually give thanks on Thanksgiving, we just eat a bunch of food and it's just a bunch of capitalist --------."

There are leftoids who want to rename it Indigenous People's Day. Expect those numbers to grow, because leftists are always pushing the boundaries.

Leftoids are always engaging in juvenile, virtue-signaling stunts. What are they actually doing to improve America, besides shrieking on blogs?

"What do Americans do except for celebrate unethical holidays," one student said. Another student interviewed outside the campus chapel said that no holidays with religious connotations should be observed."

How long before the leftist mob torches the campus chapel?

Bizarre. The right invents these "wars" and end up being the only ones fighting them. Soon they'll all be sitting around dinner tables whining about the "War on Thanksgiving" while stuffing themselves full of turkey.

WTF do you care? You'll be long gone before that comes about.

And if it does, so be it! It'll be their generation by then. They can do what they want with it, freedom of thought, expression and all.

Smoke a bowl and be content that it hasn't happened yet.

Yeah, because that's an apt comparison.

When the war on Thanksgiving reaches a level that threatens the sustainability of coastal human's way of life on a global scale, you juuuuuuuust might have a point. Until then, you sound like an old curmudgeon without a leg to stand on.

With that said, I'm planning on living to at least the age of 150 years. So, really, you're just speaking for yourself in that context. Keep eatin' dem prunes, NULLI. Maybe you'll last just long enough to see NOLA wash away.

>made up war
just as I was leaving to go to lunch/dinner the local NPR station was crowing about various liberal groups affiliated with indians (feather not dot) who were sticking it to huwhitey with a "no thanks, no giving", or something. These leftist women can rain-dance with their elders as long as the peyote is forthcoming for all I care, but the idea that this attack on tradition is "made-up" is a textbook example of gaslighting.

There is a loud group of moron activists that want to rename Thanksgiving Indigenous Peoples Day, saying that the Pilgrims abused the Indians. Trump is right, like it or not. I'm never surprised by the number of uninformed posters putting their ignorance on display.

Columbus Day is already renamed Indigenous Peoples Day. Trump is wrong, again, as usual. Stop pointing fingers at others when it is yourself you need to examine.

The fact of the matter is is that Liberals have tried to change the name and context of many things in America. They are the biggest reasons why so many euphemisms exist today in all their PC glory. While there may not be an attack on Thanksgiving now, it's very easy to logically deduce why someone would worry about it. Should it be a POTUS who has a lot more important things to do...probably not. But is it illogical or not based in reality...nope. They are already attacking the day, and to trivialize that like this article attempts to do is just stupid. Every year now I hear about how Thanksgiving was a day that celebrates slaughtering Indians and such, even though the whole purpose of the holiday was to show the truth that there was a time when the white devils (as Liberals want them labelled as) and Indians did exist in relative peace. Which is actually true in some geographic areas and definitely not true in others, the intent of the holiday is to spread a message of peace. Well, I guess since Liberals today will attack a lesbian for saying everyone should respect and get along with everyone else regardless of their opinions, it's not surprising they will attack even something that is supposed to represent peace.

Saying liberals want to change the name of Thanksgiving is pure paranoia.

Yeah sure, and the War On Christmas is a real thing too. Hilarious!

Fox News/Trump: "There's a liberal war on Thanksgiving! There's a liberal war on Christmas!"

Liberals: "LOL, what? We love Thanksgiving and Christmas."

Fox News/Trump: "Victory!"

As far as declaring war on a holiday, I think we can all get behind an assault on Valentine's Day.
Not messing around.
Unconditional surrender.
