My erstwhile friend Stephanie, a faux socialist who’s allergic to work, sent me an e-card for Thanksgiving.
Stef is famous on this blog for her outburst many years ago, “I’ve made up my mind! Don’t confuse me with facts!,” when I offered a counter-argument and counter-evidence to her uncritical stance on the Irish Republican Army.
Although she has known me for 30 years and knows full well I’m a professor and a conservative, Stef nevertheless just can’t suppress her impulse to lecture to me about Thanksgiving. Such is the preening narcissism of Progressives.
Here’s the Care2 free e-card she sent me:
Ode to Thanksgiving
On this Thanksgiving Day, I am thankful for life
and to be able to share it with my friends, kids and wife.
Everyone celebrates Thanksgiving in their own way
But let’s take a look at the original Thanksgiving day.
It was many, many years ago when Pilgrims arrived
and the Native Americans taught them how to survive.
And, in return the Pilgrims gave them things brand new
like measles, cholera, chicken pox, and all types of flu.
They destroyed a great nation and took their land
and killed their families whenever they took a stand.
So, when you give thanks for things this time of years,
I am just grateful that some of my people are still here.

Stephanie is my Liberal Earning Warning System. Years before wicca, the goddess cult, reparation for “African Americans”, multiculturalism, diversity, and “green” became mainstream cultural memes, I already learnt about them from Stef. By the way, she is white Anglo-Saxon with not a trace of “Native American” DNA.
