Something about catching the wolf in the wheat, I think.

This holiday was meant to give thanks to the Native Americans who gave us their land free of charge and at a very fine price I might add.



Edit: Wow we're already starting on a hot topic.

A bunch of religious extremists were thankful that they didn't die.

I remember news stories of one extremely white SJW kindergarten teacher who tried a special Thanksgiving project with his kindergarten class teaching them what it was like to have your land invaded and taken from you.

Even Native education spokespeople protested, saying, basically, you don't cross that line with kids, paleface:
"Let the learn the Myth first, at an age when they need to learn tolerance."

(In the larger picture, there are some things more important than masturbating your White Guilt in public.)

Something like that. We flirt through insults.



Nope, he celebrates it too. Fancy that. Who passes up food though? Really?
