Thanksgiving Celebrates Our ‘Original Sin,’ ‘Views Virtually Identical To Nazis,’ Journalism Prof Preaches

Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American “sin.” That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also calls Thanksgiving a “white-supremacist holiday.”

Jensen’s opinion piece “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,” appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany. “How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.

According to Jensen, Thanksgiving is “at the heart of U.S. myth-building. “But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin – the genocide of indigenous people – is of special importance today,” he explained.

I’ve heard Austin is the Berserkeley-Wannabe of the Texas Hill Country. With this bit of hateful stupidity I can fully believe that.


I love Thanksgiving, because it’s American and it’s about family and it’s secular and it isn’t commercialized and it’s about community not consumerism.

And I love the turkey and all the turkey sandwiches I’ll harvest for a week.

PETA and the other left wing schmoes can just stuff it.
