“a holiday whose true origins lay in the genocide of millions of Natives, the theft of Native land, and the destruction of Native culture”
This poisonous way of thinking about America has been nurtured by the left for years and is a real threat to the future of the country.

Student government email claims Thanksgiving celebrates ‘theft’ and ‘destruction’
The Duke University Student Government (DSG) sent a Nov. 17 email that urged students to focus on the “genocidal” history of Thanksgiving.
“Even though we are all excited for this break, we implore you to reflect on the genocidal history of Thanksgiving- a holiday whose true origins lay in the genocide of millions of Natives, the theft of Native land, and the destruction of Native culture,” the email, obtained by Campus Reform, read.
“Express your gratitude for what you have this holiday,” it continued. “But also don’t allow yourself to forget that this country was built on the destruction of an entire people.”
The email, titled “Thankful for you,” was sent to students to update on different events at the North Carolina campus ahead of Thanksgiving break. The topic is commonplace at universities ahead of the November holiday.
Santa Rosa Junior College student government representatives considered changing the name of “Thanksgiving” because it could be “offensive.”
The University of Pittsburgh student newspaper editorial board published an 2021 article arguing that “it’s OK to not like Thanksgiving” and urged students’ to “redefine” it.
