It is Robert Jensen’s good fortune to be blatantly, thoroughly, categorically wrong, lest somebody go all self-fulfilling prophecy on him, and drag the stinking carcass of his bogus ideas in the direction of reality:
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.
The First Amendment is a beautiful, two way street, and I hope the rest of the country joins me in a finely crafted blend of thankfulness to the Founders, along with forgiveness and laughter directed at Jensen for acting like such a pathetic little crapflooder.
Jensen, a mind is a terrible thing to waste in the manner you seem to choose. Repent, and strive to be less a knucklehead in the future, and we’ll all thank you for it.
