Thanksgiving is for who???

Sometimes, God just hands you a stupid person, and the fun begins.

Let’s take a moment and remember the Holiday: Thanksgiving.  A time to be thankful for the things you have, and those things in your life that you want to say “Thanks!” for…

Like Sarah Palin.  Sarah made HER feelings known when she interviewed with a local morning talk show in Washington. 

The segment started off well enough. It was really just a puff piece about the meaning of Thanksgiving in people’s lives. Things derailed quickly however, when the interviewer asked Palin about the ‘controversy’ surrounding the holiday.

Palin sat dumbfounded unaware of any controversy. The host went on to fill her in on the fact that many Native American tribes do not celebrate the holiday. In fact, it is a day of mourning for them. And those that do celebrate the day do so because it is a reminder that they survived mass murder, forced relocation, the theft of their land and many other injustices.

Hold on to your shorts, pilgrim…… Here’s what she had to say…..

 “Thanksgiving is for real Americans not Indians. We founded this Christian nation. Why, if it wasn’t for the God-fearing pilgrims, the natives would still be running around in loin cloths shooting at things with their arrows.”

The host of the show, bravely tried to SAVE her!  He said: “Surely, you’re aware that the Indians were the native population of this country and were driven from their homes by the European settlers.?”

This further incited Palin, who continued, “I’ll tell ya what I know. I know that these tribes do a lot of whining. I mean they got special rights up the wazzoo. They have those casinos all over the place. Seems to me they got a great deal. If they would just put down the bottle and whatever they’re smoking in those peace pipes and get a job like the rest of us, they’d be alright. I see it all the time in Alaska with the Inuit. They just don’t want to join the rest of us. They’re still hunting whale for gosh sake.”

Yeah, I didn’t believe it for a minute either….
