Democrats Hate Thanksgiving: Here's How they Plan to Ruin It


By Kerry Jackson

When Americans gather for Thanksgiving dinner, some just might want to follow the conventions of the holiday and talk about what they are thankful for. At tables around the country conversation will naturally drift toward Christmas shopping, football and the weather.

But for the Democrats, Thanksgiving is just a chance to ruin a fine holiday.

On Tuesday, @TheDemocrats tweeted "It's the holiday season, which means lots of time with your Republican uncle. Give him the facts this weekend." Included was "The Democrat's Guide To Talking Politics With Your Republican Uncle," in case Democrats out there "need help setting your Republican relatives straight this holiday season." The guide is supposedly useful for sorting out "the most common myths" and has "the perfect response for each of them."

Thanks, guys, for spreading misery all across the country. Our Thanksgiving holiday should be a time for joy and reflection, but the Democrats want to turn it into a war zone, where family members are pitted against each other

This is, naturally, a theme for the party. Two years ago it tried to mar Christmas with Pajama Boy, that effete and effeminate fellow who wanted us all to spend Christmas talking about ObamaCare. Simply put, Democrats don't have any use for a civil society, where individuals make their own choices and voluntarily work together. They want us to live in a political society, in which decisions are made by a political process and coercion is the tool of organization.

This does nothing but divide the American people and set us on the path to mob rule, where the strongest gang brings down the law and forces everyone else to live by it, the U.S. Constitution and timeless, universal principles be damned.

It's discouraging, but the truth is that we have strayed far from the road we were on when George Washington proclaimed that Thursday, Nov. 26, 1789, would be a day of "public thanksgiving and prayer" devoted to "the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be."

Maybe what we should be most grateful for this year is the fact that things aren't actually worse than they are, and hope that next year our gratitude is a joyful response to the fact that the candidate from the party of political society wasn't elected president earlier in the month.
