Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American “sin.” That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also calls Thanksgiving a “white-supremacist holiday.”
Jensen’s opinion piece “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,” appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany. “How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.
According to Jensen, Thanksgiving is “at the heart of U.S. myth-building. “But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin — the genocide of indigenous people — is of special importance today,” he explained.
Jensen, as the CNS News piece points out, has a long history of being a hysterical loon. Three days after 9/11, he published this piece in the Houston Chronicle, basically stating the attacks on America were no more despicable than acts of terrorism committed by our own government. It is a strikingly similar tone to the “America’s chickens have come home to roost” delirium spewed by the Reverend Jeremiah Wright.
Just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all of our readers out there. Hope you and your families have a safe and happy holiday. And also, will be praying for a Dallas Cowboy victory.
One last thing…
Heard a story recently about some parents who took exception to the religious aspects of a little play known as, A Charlie Brown Christmas. The Christmas special has long been a favorite play for kids, as well as an animated TV special aired around this time of year.
The following is a message provided by one atheist group regarding a school trip to see the play:
“While everyone loves Charlie Brown, the religious content of the program is a problem, as is the trip to a church to see it,” wrote (Anne) Orsi on the group’s Facebook page. “Oddly enough, not all kids at the school are Christian, and their parents don’t want them singled out as ‘different.’ Who’d a thunk it?”
While the irony is almost certainly lost on people that complain about such religious events – that they take exception to others forcing their religion upon them, and fight back by forcing their non-religion on those same people – I’d like to take the time to recognize this particular atheist organization trying to rain on everybody else’s parade this holiday season.
So atheists, I present to you the easily most offensive portion of A Charlie Brown Christmas in your eyes – Linus, quoting scripture in an attempt to quantify the true meaning of Christmas.
