Diversity Center at U. Buffalo Hosts Event to Discuss Alternatives to Celebrating Thanksgiving

“The essence of the event was fundamentally anti-American and full of inaccurate history to further their agenda”

The contempt for American history and traditions is so obvious here.

Campus Reform reports:

Leftist Thanksgiving event asked students ‘what America should do in place of this celebration’

The Intercultural and Diversity Center (IDC) at the University at Buffalo recently hosted an event to discuss alternatives to celebrating Thanksgiving.

Last week, the IDC hosted a Zoom talk on the holiday’s purported “whitewashed history” titled “The Real History of Thanksgiving,” which is part of the office’s “Tough Topics” discussion series.

The description for the Nov. 8 event stated, “Come out to the IDC to discuss the real history of Thanksgiving and what America should do in place of this celebration.”

“Students were surprised and concerned that the university was trying to cancel Thanksgiving. Even some students who expressed that they are not conservative remarked that the left has gone too far with cancel culture, Therese Purcell, a student at UB and chair of the school’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter, told Campus Reform.

“This was the first event I have been to at the Intercultural and Diversity Center,” Purcell told Campus Reform.

“The essence of the event was fundamentally anti-American and full of inaccurate history to further their agenda,” she added. “The event only showed leftist arguments, and when I asked them to back up their historical claims with facts, they continued to make faulty historical claims.”

UB’s Intercultural and Diversity Center states that its mission is to “designed to increase a student’s sense of belonging by providing a comfortable place to meet, socialize, study, and interact with our professional staff and peer educators (Diversity Advocates), and other students.”

Well, shucks. How about just a good old-fashioned pagan orgy?
No one who apparently counts anymore will be offended by it,
and anybody who wants can still ask for extra stuffing.

I wonder if anyone at the Diversity Center actually read it? Although I suppose the God-talk would likely turn them off, it would be just like a Diversity apparatchik to reject something without ever bothering to go to primary sources to read what that thing was about. Or at least point out that GW was less than perfect.

Now, what was the name of big state out west? The national capital? That big suspension bridge across the Hudson? The image on dollar bills?

Must be lots of work queued up for Diversity Professionals! So much culture to destroy, so little time …
