The Farce of Thanksgiving

Tuesday, November 21st, 2017

I question how many people understand what they are celebrating as Americans gather around tables adorned with the bodies of the victims of this year’s nonhuman genocide. The following article explains in good detail what Thanksgiving Day truly commemorates. Although it is a bit lengthy, I encourage everyone to read it in its entirety, both for the historical content and the fact that the real authenticity only comes into focus when the essay ends. -Camille

“This pathetic excuse for a holiday is celebrated over the carcass of a once living, breathing being that wanted to live and had as much right to life as the savages carving its tortured body. Hopefully, all who so dine will soon come down with the maladies and illnesses well-documented to be associated with eating sentient creatures.”

As history teaches us, the greatest conflicts and the bloodiest wars throughout time have been waged because of belief systems and boundaries. We can trace this from the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition through Hitler to the various”ethnic cleansing” that go on around the world. This mentality does not tolerate differing political, social and religious beliefs, and it does not hesitate to seize another’s land and property if it suits a purpose.

It was the custom in European countries to mark the boundaries of land with fences ranging from palisades to low rock walls. Once word spread throughout Europe and Spain about this land called The Americas, which was wild, untamed and unclaimed, this new territory became a safe haven for outlaws, prisoners, exiles, and the radical element of politics, social structure and religious practices – the violent and the non-conformists.

Even though the first explorers and early settlers had been warned about the “heathen savages” found in the “New World”, they found the First Peoples of this land curious about these strange people, and more than willing to teach them how to survive and live well in their new surroundings.

The flow of people into this country was slow in the beginning and, even though there was the occasional hothead among the newcomers, life was generally a peaceful co-existence for almost 150 years. However, as the trickle of settlers turned into a steady river, the atmosphere began to change.
