Thanksgiving. The turkey. The stuffing. The pumpkin pie.
The “ongoing genocide.”
Yes, it’s that time a year again when the painfully Woke suck all of the pleasure out of America’s national day of thanks, food and football.
At the University of Oregon, the joyless alumni led an hour-long discussion last week titled, “Thanks, But No Thanks-giving: Decolonizing an American Holiday.”
According to Campus Reform, the event description promoted the virtual workshop as a discussion about how we can “continue to show gratitude while raising our critical consciousness and identifying ways to decolonize the holiday.”
“The main messages are that of gratitude, food, and family; however, Thanksgiving is, foundationally speaking, a celebration of the ongoing genocide against native peoples and cultures across the globe,” the description reads.
Doesn’t that just ooze “celebration.”
The event, of course, began with the playing of the University of Oregon Land Acknowledgement. You’ll find similar “meaningless self-scourging progressive fashion statements” throughout the University of Wisconsin System. Land Acknowledgements are Woke creeds announcing that the United States of America was established on land stolen from indigenous people.”
During Oregon’s life-sucking presentation, attendees were encouraged to reflect upon their own experiences with Thanksgiving, and how they can “Indigenize” the holiday.
“I’ve begun healing from Thanksgiving by going into the woods and camping, harvesting, meditating, and reading,” one participant said.
Let’s hope said participant stays in the woods, and takes the rest of his Woke warriors with them.
Meanwhile, pass the potatoes and don’t skimp on the gravy.
