Giblets? GIBLETS? You ate giblets?


You didn't? It's tradition. We all have out favorite bits and pieces in our house. Lucky me, I'm the only one who likes the heart, so I don't have to share with anyone.

My point is that Thanksgiving is a day to be thankful for a bountiful harvest.

There are 365 days in the year. There are plenty of other days where we can self-flagellate over the things that happened to the Native Americans, and it's not like no one hears about it and it's not brought up or taught in history as a matter of course.

Who was never taught about the Trail of Tears or the smallpox blankets? Who doesn't know about reservations or the Mission School systems? How many are totally ignorant of the slaughter of the buffalo and why it was carried out?

We are massively off topic now lol
Crazy how the higher per capita public spending in Scotland compared to us in England produces members who post # like they are victims.

The universities here have taught everyone that only white Australians celebrate this on Jan 26th with alcohol, meat and utes with massive Aussie flags because they are essentially racist. Consequently, all the whiteys must collectively say sorry every 5 years or so for the next 3 million years.

There are also massive shopping mall sales that happen that long weekend, so the corporations and government usually juggle between 'gimme ya money on Australia day long weekend' & 'don't be a racist and celebrate Australia day long weekend'.

If you buy Lamb or Pork on Australia day, you're extra racist.

It's like we are living in a big fat shroom trip over here.

Mate, i don't know as to the higher per capita public spending in Scotland, i just know Christmas is going to be tough this year for rather a significant percentage of the people of our supposed blessed isle.

Haha victims, ive never been a victim in my life, created a few all the same.


England produces Tories that's a given, at least London does. LoL

Possibly because it makes it easier to tell them?

Bah! Humbag! Thanks to all the shipping going on and the days off, I rely on those months to pick up extra hours and some extra cash.

So you can take your free months off. Even with pay, I will do better having regular time and extra time and still get all the time with my family I need.

Thanksgiving just isn’t as big a money-maker as Halloween and Christmas holidays are. It’s all about the bottom line. That’s your beloved capitalism at work right there.

Trump is proud. Money, money, money. MAGA!


Well, that was a good post until you had to get the political dig in. Why oh why did you have to do that? Poor Thanksgiving has been steadily eclipsed by Christmas creep my entire life--where I'm at, some stores started putting Christmas stuff out at the end of AUGUST ffs. So why bring tangental Trump comments into the discussion?

If the “tolerant” left had its way. Thanksgiving would be renamed native American genocide enslavement and theft of land by evil white men .



You mean the truth of the creation of this country.


Gotta crack a couple eggs if you want to make an omlet...

Fact of the matter is if the “red people” wouldn’t have kept picking fights they wouldn’t have got their sorry asses handed to them... but you want to keep coming at people that try to break bread with you... expect to get your own scalp handed to you...

Happy Thanksgiving... enjoy the freedoms the “white man” killed for...


Love people like you. You spout nonsense without knowing the true history and in the process make yourself look idiotic.

Because the whole point of the thread was to dig at the “pc progressives” as the reason for the lack of Thanksgiving. All I did was call bs on that... and add a little tit for tat.

You should come to my hometown, I bet it´s not more than a two hour drive.

Maybe ask some people that live around the LEA. Tell them that what you wrote here.

They will tell you how violent-crimes, drug-crimes, robbings, messing up nature with no regard for garbage disposal, messing up the city with food in bags everywhere, making physical sexual advancements towards women in shops (cashiers, shelv, customers) by either touching them in their private parts or continiously badgering to marry them.

Wait for them on the parking lot when they leave the shop after it´s closes for some more marry-me-badgering.

I had several other encounters. One of it was when a whole mob thought they need to hit on my car for wanting to back out of my parking spot, when they surrounded my car and would not let me out of the parking spot.

SIMPLY for driving a fast car that they need to touch and inspect.

Just because you, you friends and relatives did experience nothing of this sort, does not mean you as a bavarian can make that statement "everything will be fine"

when the history from the last three years clearly PROOF that it isn´t like some leftist german members here want to portrait.

Contact me, I´ll invite you for a weekend. We´ll go into the city, see with your own eyes. I´ll leave you at the entrance. Bring good clothes and good shoes. They always like those.

I doubt you will.

Thanksgiving is to honor the fact that a pile of white people were starving and the friendly natives took pity on them and fed them. God ,nationlist,consumerism and the like did not have Jack to do with it now birthole companies did say hey you know what people are going to have a long weekend so let's have some junk at low prices so Friday they will come shop at our store oh yeah and let's make sure to do it at like 5 am so they will still be half asleep so maybe they will get item they want plus some that catches their eye. I used to work retail and the only reason we started staying open on thanksgiving was because Wal-Mart decided too.

Besides, Thanksgiving didn't come about as a religious holiday. It was originally a day to honor burning a village down and killing 500 people. Oh the things you learn when you ignore the rose tint and actually research a holiday.



The celebration in 1621 did not mark a friendly turning point and did not become an annual event. Relations between the Wampanoag and the settlers deteriorated, leading to the Pequot War. In 1637, in retaliation for the murder of a man the settlers believed the Wampanoags killed, they burned a nearby village, killing as many as 500 men, women, and children.

Following the massacre, William Bradford, the Governor of Plymouth, wrote that for “the next 100 years, every Thanksgiving Day ordained by a Governor was in honor of the bloody victory, thanking God that the battle had been won.”

Bolded the important part, because people seem to be willfully missing it.

Nobody is missing it... just don’t care... just like I don’t owe any “descendants of slaves” reparations I don’t owe Indians anything either because my family wasn’t here when any of that crap was going on and to act as though I do because I’m white is in and of itself inherently racist...

That being said though if it makes you feel better I’ll root for the Redskins to massacre the Cowboys on thanksgiving while shoveling food in my face in celebration of the time the Cowboys did the opposite to the Injuns... 😜👍
