    “President Donald Trump celebrated the 400th anniversary of the pilgrims’ journey to America in 1620 in his annual Thanksgiving Proclamation.

    “Propelled by hope for a brighter future, these intrepid men and women endured two long months at sea, tired and hungry, to arrive in a new world full of potential,” he wrote.


    Trump recalled that the community celebrated the first Thanksgiving in America the following year despite unprecedented hardship in the New World.

    “This seminal event in the history of our Nation is a continual reminder of the power of faith, love, perseverance, prayer, and fellowship,” he wrote.

    The president recalled that the Mayflower Compact developed by the pilgrims was the beginning of democracy in America.”

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone! The 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims landing here is an important milestone. They came here in search of religious liberty and brought democracy here as well. Next year will be the 400th anniversary of our first thanksgiving.

    The Thanksgiving Day Celebration Originated From a Massacre

    In 1621, though Pilgrims celebrated a feast, it was not repeated in the years to follow. In 1636, a murdered white man was found in his boat and the Pequot were blamed. In retaliation, settlers burned Pequot villages.

    Additionally, English Major John Mason rallied his troops to further burn Pequot wigwams and then attacked and killed hundreds more men, women and children. According to Mason’s reports of the massacre, “We must burn them! Such a dreadful terror let the Almighty fall upon their spirits that they would flee from us and run into the very flames. Thus did the Lord judge the heathen, filling the place with dead bodies.


    The day after the massacre, William Bradford wrote that "from that day forth shall be a day of celebration and thanks giving for subduing the Pequots" and “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.”

    “Consider this description of the Pilgrims' treatment of the Indigenous peoples:

    "They were the worst of conquerors. Inordinate pride, the lust of blood and dominion, were the mainsprings of their warfare; and their victories were strained with every excess of savage passion."

    Except that's not a description of the Pilgrims' treatment of Indigenous peoples. It's a description of some Indigenous people's treatment of other Indigenous peoples, written by the late Francis Parkman, Harvard professor and the world's foremost Indian scholar.

    The Wampanoag, who joined the Pilgrims at the first Thanksgiving, had a lot to celebrate. Contrary to Hollywood's American-hating rendition of "Pocahontas," in which the Indians feared the "White Demons," the Wampanoag were thrilled with their well-armed white allies, who helped them repel the hated Iroquois and Narragansett.”

    That is a revisionist liberal lie.
    The savages were guilty. Their guilt is of legend and lore. The indian savagery is even mentioned in the U.S. Declaration Of Independence.

    Just more lib/prog/socialist/communist revisionist bullshit.

    While today Thanksgiving is one of our nation’s favorite holidays, it has a far different meaning for many Wampanoag, who now number between 4,000 and 5,000. Turner said, “For the most part, Thanksgiving itself is a day of mourning for Native people, not just Wampanoag people.”

    At noon on every Thanksgiving Day, hundreds of Native people from around the country gather at Cole’s Hill, which overlooks Plymouth Rock, for the National Day of Mourning. It is an annual tradition started in 1970, when Wampanoag Wamsutta (Frank) James was invited by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to give a speech at an event celebrating the 350th anniversary of the Pilgrims’ arrival and then disinvited after the event organizers discovered his speech was one of outrage over the “atrocities” and “broken promises” his people endured.

    On the Wampanoag welcoming and having friendly relations with the Pilgrims, James wrote in his undelivered speech: “This action by Massasoit was perhaps our biggest mistake. We, the Wampanoag, welcomed you, the white man, with open arms, little knowing that it was the beginning of the end.”

    Let's not forget how the first settlers in Jamestowne were brutally massacred by the Indians. Maybe they should have thought of consequences as they were Hacking our women to pieces.

    Live by the sword die by the sword.
