More MSNBC-NBC loony toons – Melissa Harris Perry says Thanksgiving is about settlers who brought violence, disease and land theft to the indigenous peoples
Every time I turn on MSNBC or an NBC station, the loony toons theme starts playing. Now I know why. Forget for a minute Brian Williams bowing to Obama, Chris Matthews thrills up his leg, or Lawrence O’Donnell threatening to beat up Mitt Romney’s son. Lets see what transpired over this past weekend on the MSNBC ‘channel.’ First you have Mara Schiavocampo to Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren claiming that rockets fired at Israel by Hamas ‘rarely do damage.’ Then you have race hustling Melissa Harris Perry declaring that you learned in grade school about Thanksgiving is all a lie. You see, instead of the story about grateful Pilgrims and happy Indians, the settlers just brought violence, disease, and land theft to the ‘indigenous peoples.’ No wonder NBC is cutting 500 jobs at the propaganda network. They are losing viewers daily over the wacky crap they put out daily.
“Thanksgiving is not that simple,” she lectured. “The kindergarten story that you learned about grateful Pilgrims and happy Indians is not even close to the historic reality of how European settlers brought violence, disease and land theft to the indigenous peoples who were already in this land long before it was discovered.”
