Thanksgiving is a ‘White Supremicist Holiday,’ says Professor

You didn’t realize that every bite of turkey and stuffing was an expression of white supremacy, did you? That’s because you aren’t an elite, left-wing academic like Robert Jensen–professor of journalism at the University of Texas, who calls Thanksgiving a “white supremacist holiday.”

Jensen’s opinion piece “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,”appeared on the far-left, Soros-connected website Alternet on Thanksgiving eve. In it, he wrote how Native Americans suffered because of the “European invasion of the Americas.” He went on to compare the Founding Fathers to Nazi Germany. “How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.According to Jensen, Thanksgiving is “at the heart of U.S. myth-building. “But in the United States, this reluctance to acknowledge our original sin — the genocide of indigenous people — is of special importance today,” he explained.

Jensen has a long career in both working journalism and academia, including work as a copy editor at The St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Petersburg Times, as well as “volunteer editing and writing for the Texas Triangle, Austin (weekly statewide lesbian/gay paper).”

It’s depressing to think that this guy is training up our next generation of “unbiased” journalists.
