Professor: Thanksgiving Is A ‘White Supremacist Holiday’

Professor: Thanksgiving Is A ‘White Supremacist Holiday’

Forget all that turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, today should be a day of fasting and atonement for American “sin.” That’s according to Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. Jensen, known for his hard-left politics, also 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?

And the remedy is to turn the US into a black-supremacist country.

“Robert Jensen”

FURJ. You are an idiot.
It’s way, way, way past time that we stop giving any special stature to academics. I’m very serious about this, and I’ve spent a huge amount of time in my life as an academic.

Right, we shouldn’t bother remembering a god-fearing, pious people who created a government of laws and not of men in the middle of the wilderness.

We can’t admire and remember the Pilgrims, but Obama’s aides can admire Mao, who murdered literally millions.

Yeah. All over South America, Native Americans enslaved one another and sacrificed their victims on altars by cutting out their hearts while still living.

And in North America, many Indians proved themselves by tying their enemies to stakes and torturing them.

Then those cruel white guys came along and put a stop to their ancient customs!

Not that Indians were all bad. But neither were they all good, innocent little lambs. They had plenty of war and slavery to go around before the whites got here.

The First Thanksgiving was one of those times when both sides were on their best behavior.

We really do need to find a means of effectively ignoring these people right out of public life.

Voting for conservatives in elective university administrative seats is a good place to start.

Jensen... Jensen...

Isn't that a scandinavian name?
You know, Vikings, rape and pillaging...

And I notice the good professor keeps his home and job on land that was taken from the poor indigenous peoples.

For shame, professor.

Robert Jensen, the professor at the University of Texas should be ignored for his “lets hate America” opinions. It saddens me to think of the young minds this man is paid to transform....what a waste!

Buffett, Soros, Reid, Clinton (H.), for a few. They’re supremecists and they’re white.

Do these “journalists” feel better that there’s a BLACK supremecist in the WH?

Just another eyebrow-raising media piece to sell ad space. Don’t get all in a huff about it. The “professor” is an a$$hat, just like many others but his credentials have earned him a mention in the news, designed to get your attention. FOX is no different from any other news outlet. Dirty Laundry sells.

This fellow should lose his job—let him go to Cuba. Lincoln made Thanksgiving a National Holiday—he was no racist. I am so sick of the race card—anyone who uses it is dead to me and insane to boot.

Yep, I often wonder how these people of European descent can live with themselves and be intellectually honest about this. If they truly believe that the white man stole the land and all that, to be intellectually honest, these people need to leave America.

The Europeans brought smallpox and alcohol so the “Indigenous” traded back syphilis and tobacco. Sort of a fair trade/s

This man is a racist who is wasting his life.

It must be rather nerve-wracking to live that way morning, noon & night, with every holiday being filled with racist rage (except maybe kwanza). I’m sure he never has any peace.

He should be ignored - unfortunately, he won’t be - and we’ll be hearing the old song and dance about how reparations will make it all better.

We need a new ‘experimental lab’ for freedom. Maybe we do need seccession of a few states living in liberty and freedom. The world needs a light to show it the way.

I agree. A great deal of leftist success is driven by our willingness to react to it. Without the attention he would be just another mediocre prof with nothing to set him apart and land him a job.

The same is true of people like Bill Maher and Michael Moore. Without the attention that we give them they would be forced to use their talents to entertain or fade into obscurity. I saw Sarah Silverman on a show last week and actually felt some pity for her because she is so desperate for attention that she was struggling for something outrageous to say when the situation simply didn’t call for it. She was flailing badly and knew it.

I think we can agree that the ‘discovery’ of North America
was an eventuality.
However, what would be the plight of the native groups if Gengis Khan had led the ‘invasion of the Americas’?

...a journalism professor...

There is a saying, "Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach."

I think it needs to be updated to reflect the new reality. "Those who couldn't find their A$$ with both hands and a road map, teach Journalism."
