(Liberty Bell) – It seems there are a lot of folks out there, mostly on the radical left end of the spectrum, who are bound and determined to ruin the holidays for the rest of us, whether it be Democratic governors instituting lockdowns and curfews or the politically correct crowd hating on Thanksgiving as a “racist” holiday.
Always someone in the liberal movement who is ready to rain on everyone’s parade and make something that the majority of people love and transform it into something controversial, you know, so they can have a cause to fight in order to feel like their lives have meaning, even if it is ridiculous.
According to The Post Millennial, the New York Times has disparaged the holiday of Thanksgiving by referring to it as nothing more than a “myth.”
This didn’t sit too well with Sen. Tom Cotton of Arizona who let the liberal news rag have it with both barrels blazing.
“The New York Times called the [pilgrim’s] story a myth and a caricature. In the food section no less,” Cotton fired off.
“Maybe the politically correct editors of the debunked 1619 Project are now responsible for pumpkin pie recipes at the Times as well,” the senator continued.
Cotton’s comments were in response to an article published by the NY Times called, “The Thanksgiving Myth Gets a Deeper Look This Year,” which was put out as part of the news organization’s food section.
The article focuses on buffalo hunting and then, as you probably already guessed, discusses “racial inequality.”
The piece quotes a Wampanoag historian who is also a member of the Aquinnah Tribe, who believes that the story of thanksgiving was something folks made up to ease a sense of “cultural guilt.”
“There was an event that happened in 1621,” the historian said. “But the whole story about what occurred on that first Thanksgiving was a myth created to make white people feel comfortable.”
The author of the article, Brett Anderson is all on board with the claims made by Coombs, calling the story of Thanksgiving a misrepresentation of the real, tragic, and harsh truth concerning the relations that took place between settlers and Indians.
Thankfully, Cotton doesn’t buy into this mess.
“I for one, still have the pride and confidence of our forbearers. So here today I speak in the spirit of that cabin and I re-affirm that old compact. As we head into the week of Thanksgiving, I’ll be giving thanks this year in particular to our Pilgrim fathers and the timeless lessons that they bequeathed to our great nation,” the Arizona senator said.
This is proof that those who are all about political correctness must be the most miserable people on the planet.
As for me and mine, we’re celebrating Thanksgiving, one way or another, with a heart full of gratitude, even in the midst of this horrific year in human history.
