WATCH: A Thanksgiving Guide to Shutting Down Your Fake Woke Cousin At Dinner

Thanksgiving is upon us, and in addition to an excuse to consume an unholy amount of calories within a relatively small window of time, it’s an excuse for liberals to pull out their Soviet red carpet and show the world how #woke they are. They’ll make a point to bring up the dark history of the holiday, and of this country. “What exactly are we celebrating?” They’ll ask, as they proceed to funnel gravy and stuffing down their gullets like their lives depended on it.

And in all honesty, they aren’t totally wrong. The colonists’ treatment of the Native Americans was horrendous. But it was also commonplace, and the intent wasn’t nearly as malicious as we’ve been taught.

Steven Crowder is one of my favorite political commentators, and in a seven minute video he debunks the myths that we’ve accepted as historical fact while making you laugh but more importantly, making you think.

If you don’t have time to watch the video, here’s what you need to take away:

  • Native Americans were constantly at war with one another, and aided the settlers in conquering land that belonged to rival tribes
  • Settlers had a technological advantage over Native Americans, which is why they were defeated
  • While Native Americans were wiped out by disease, it was a result of not having built up immunity to diseases that Europeans and their animals were carrying, not premeditated genocide carried out through the use of “small pox blankets”

Enjoy your turkey, enjoy your family, and enjoy whatever drink you spike and chug as your family gets political.

  • im pro life, and I’m conflicted, and I think that’s a good thing. And I think the more questions we ask ourselves and our fellow Americans despite what we believe or what we think we know, the better off we’ll all be. I wrote a blog post for the first time in forever and I hope you’ll read it, even if you hate me after. Link in bio, read before bitching. And I’d also encourage you to go over to @backinfebruary_ to read a unique, refreshing, balanced and most importantly compassionate perspective from a single mother that became pregnant unexpectedly.
