Thanksgiving Dinner Origins

In America, we’re about ready for Thanksgiving, our particular riff on the age-old harvest festival. Tomorrow the majority of us will be enjoying some variety of variants of our Thanksgiving dinner. Hopefully, most of us will enjoy our feasts and the company, be it family, friends, or both, that we are surrounded by while doing so.

Thanksgiving Dinner

One thing though – Thanksgiving, despite America’s spin upon it, is still at its heart a harvest celebration. Hence, I believe that we should spare a moment or more to consider our Thanksgiving dinner’s origin. And by that I do not mean the well-known legendry of Thanksgiving or the murkier and more complex history thereof; No, I mean the origins of the delicious food upon our tables.

Spare some time this Thanksgiving to think about and be grateful for the efforts of all those “rural folk” – the farmers, ranchers, and such along with the men and women who get those crops from the farms across the land to the stores you buy it at.

Yeah, it would be good and very likely pleasant to pause and consider the farm workers and such in those so easily dismissible fly-over districts, counties, and states. Instead of repeating the urbanites’ and suburanites’ mistake of considering the America’s rural population as forgettable but unforgivable, deplorable, uneducated hicks and rubes, consider that there’s a reason why they make up the heartland of America.

The Irony, It Burns

Hispanic Neo-Slaves Sometimes the irony, it burns.

It burns hot with the all-consuming fires of unpleasant and uncomfortable truths – truths that the purveyors of lies hate with a black, bleeding passion and the believers of those lies dread being forced to acknowledge.

The Liberals’ position on illegal immigration is one such burning, caustic irony that, will turn their dreams to ash if fully exposed to the masses – assuming, that is, that those masses could bring themselves to accept it.

Whenever forced to provide a measurable reason why America’s borders shouldn’t be secured and the illegals already hiding within them be expelled the reason that they always supple is that illegal immigrants are needed for America’s economy because they will work for substandard wages and in substandard conditions.

Go ahead, if you can stomach talking to them, and force a Liberal to give an answer with more substance than “Open Borders”, “Right to Travel,” or the ever-ready “Racist!” or “Nationalist!”

According to the Liberals we as nation need illegal immigrants, mostly the Hispanic ones, in order to maintain our standard of living through using them as some form of neo- or quasi-slave labor – especially in when it comes to agriculture, factory work, and domestic maintenance.

Liberals’ Answers

Those are immensely ironic answers from a group of people who tout themselves as being the guardians of civil rights fighting the long, hard war against “America’s ingrained and institutional racism.” It’s an amazingly ironic position for a group of people who claim to be the champions of workers rights.

Yet, these are the answers that the Liberals keep giving – over, and over, and over again.
