In 1966, I had the honor of marching in that parade when my high school band, the William Penn Senior High school marching band of York, PA had the honor of leading the parade.
I guess we should expect the stooges & tools to work the immigration angle into just about every story from now on until Obama gets his nation destroying amnesty passed.
I think the balloons may be cancelled this year because there’s a big storm coming with high winds, supposedly.
Uh huh. That'd be thankful LEGAL immigrants, neh?
Thanksgiving Day Queens, NY, 1948... my grandparents, who emigrated from Italy in 1908, came to our new (to us) house for the feast. Before the meal, Grandpa walked me the five blocks to a neighborhood bar to see the parade on this new thing called “television.” I remember drinking the bitter “milk” off the top of his beers. I hated the taste, but it was my “job” to do that for him.
Thanks for that memory.
I remember when there was coverage of the parade on CBS as well as NBC. Just before it started, Captain Kangaroo would end his show with the cast sitting down to Thanksbiving dinner and bowing their heads as “We Gather Together To Count The Lord’s Blessings” played.
Macy’s New Side Show...Viva....Muslim Brotherhood Supporters to Protest Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade.
While millions of Americans are being thankful for giant Charlie Brown balloons, the Muslim Brotherhood isnt feeling particularly thankful since their brutal thugocracy got overthrown and theyve been sore about it ever since.So theyre doing the completely logical thing by protesting the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade. Take that Snoopy!
A group of Egyptians sympathetic to former President Mohmamed Morsi are gearing up to stage a demonstration along the Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade route in New York City, according to organizers.
Several hundred activists are expected to show up to the march, which is being called Rabaa on Thanksgiving in Manhattan.
The name is a reference to Egypts Rabaa Square, where backers of Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood gathered to protest the coup until being violently disbursed by the military in August.
The Thanksgiving demonstration is being organized by the Free Egyptian Americans (FEA) and Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR), a group sympathetic to the Muslim Brotherhood.
You dont say. Well protesting Snoopy is easier than protesting the Egyptian military. And no one ever accused the Muslim Brotherhood of courage.
Be nice if they took a flight back home protest there.
Thank-you for your post/. I will carry the message on.
