Thanksgiving vilified by media and schools as a celebration of ‘genocide,’ ‘imperialism’
This week, millions of Americans will be celebrating Thanksgiving with family and friends, eating a good meal and watching football. But a creeping vilification of the popular holiday has spread across media outlets and schools, claiming that Thanksgiving is about "genocide" and "imperialism."
The Saturday before Thanksgiving in 2021, MSNBC featured Native American activist Gyasi Ross to criticize the holiday.
"Instead of bringing stuffing and biscuits, those settlers brought genocide and violence," he said.
The year before, on the November 21, 2020 edition of "AM Joy," MSNBC regular Jason Johnson echoed a similar note.
