Historical past by MSNBC: Thanksgiving is ‘Colonizer Christmas’ and Colonists Had been Cannibals
In these coronavirus times, one thing is to encourage people not to gather in large groups for Thanksgiving. But for such purposes, is it necessary to discard the most popular holiday in America’s secular calendar?
Yeah, apparently – if you had the misfortune to tune in to MSNBC’s AM Joy this morning. Guest host Jason Johnson gave a hint of Thanksgiving’s devastation by saying:
“I know I know several people in my family who call it Colonizer Christmas because they don’t really like the idea of what Thanksgiving is.”
Not to be outdone, New Yorker’s Jelani Cobb, who is also an MSNBC employee, associated the vacation with a creepy image. He said that “anthropological research” shows that at the time of the original Thanksgiving Day The colonists resorted to “cannibalism”. because of their dire conditions. Keep that in mind when you hold onto that turkey leg!
The left’s campaign to undermine and ultimately destroy American traditions and culture is unstoppable. Christmas: secularized. Columbus Day? Fuggedaboutit – it’s indigenous peoples day! And in that final attack, Thanksgiving turns into Colonizer Christmas and a lot of cannibals celebrate.
Note: There is evidence of isolated incidents of cannibalism among the Jamestown colonists during the harsh winter of 1609-10. However, this was hardly a widespread practice. Cobb’s attempt to associate Thanksgiving with cannibalism was grotesque.

Here is the transcript.
JASON JOHNSON: As the coronavirus is spiraling out of control in almost every corner of the country. It looks like spaghetti has been spread all over the US map. This morning the number of cases in the US exceeded 12 million. The CDC is asking people not to travel for Thanksgiving. However, 40% of Americans plan to attend a Thanksgiving dinner with ten or more people, potentially creating super-spreader events across the country. With only a few days left before America’s favorite holiday, I urge you not to be the turkey who endangers your loved ones.
. . .
Jelani, I would like to point this out. Thanksgiving turned out just like Christmas in America, right? At some point, Christmas was a time for rich people to open their houses so people could come in and get things.
Thanksgiving has changed over time too. I know in my family that I know some people who call it “Colonizer Christmas” because they don’t really like the idea of what Thanksgiving is.
Is it really such a disruption, culturally and historically, that maybe we should retreat from Thanksgiving this year? Didn’t we have other times when major holidays had to change because the nation was in crisis?
JELANI COBB: Sure. Or think about it: The original Thanksgiving Day, you know where the colony starved, and anthropological research suggests they had to resort to cannibalism in such dire conditions to stay alive.
And you know it’s always been like that It is awkward to say that by filling yourself up with as much food as you can find, you are reminding yourself. And maybe people actually need to think about a small sacrifice that would be appropriate for that day.
