Thanksgiving has been cancelled! Woke website Eater adds trigger warning to green bean recipe
The awake crowd came for Thanksgiving this year when food blog Eater issued a trigger warning for its green bean casserole, while many on social media warned the holiday would hurt Native Americans.
Eater, a recipe website that many turn to for holiday cooking ideas, added trigger warnings to its Thanksgiving recipes, such as its popular green bean casserole, as a way of acknowledging the origins of the holiday.
The editor’s note read: ‘Thanksgiving has its origins in an uneasy, temporary alliance between 17th-century English settlers and members of the Wampanoag Confederacy. This year, Eater chooses to recognize that history in our coverage of the holiday.”
Eater’s decision to join this year’s vigil comes as other condemnations against Thanksgiving flooded Twitter, including reports from liberal media outlets, elected officials and even a weather website.
Eater posted an editor’s note in their Thanksgiving recipes that mentioned the history of the holiday
MSNBC kicked off the war on Thanksgiving early this year with an interview with Gyasi Ross, a member of the Blackfeet tribe who condemned the holiday celebration
Ross called the Thanksgiving holiday the beginning of a genocide that is still going on
The left-wing MSNBC kicked off the war on Thanksgiving early this year with an interview with Gyasi Ross, a member of the Blackfeet tribe, last Saturday, who called the holiday a celebration of a harmful myth.
“Instead of bringing stuffing and cookies, those settlers brought genocide and violence,” Ross said. ‘That genocide and violence is still on the menu.’
USA Today put the holiday’s violent history in its own spotlight with the article ‘What Is Thanksgiving for Indigenous Peoples? A day of mourning.’
“For most natives, Thanksgiving is not a celebration,” said Dennis Zotigh, a local citizen USA today. “Natives, particularly in the New England area, remember this attempted genocide as an actual part of their history and are reminded of it every year during modern Thanksgiving.”
Many are using #NationalDayOfMourning and marching across the country with that slogan to remind America of the history of the holiday.
Others criticized the holiday, calling today a national day of mourning instead
One Twitter user, Nick Estes, wrote using the hashtag: “Thanksgiving epitomizes a fictional nation’s fake history of cordial Indigenous-colonizer relationships as founder. So every year we are forced to counter a Disneyland story that erases the European invasion, land theft and indigenous genocide.”
South Dakota State Senator Kayse Jama also took part in the National Day of Mourning talks through a series of tweets about “rethinking Thanksgiving” from the perspective of indigenous peoples.
He tweeted a quote from JR Lilly, a member of the Navajo Nation, who wrote: “Thanksgiving is always complex for many Native American families because of its connection to genocide, stolen land, broken treaties, settler colonialism, and violent ideologies like the Doctrine. from Discovery & Manifest Destiny. For many of us, Thanksgiving is a day of mourning.”
Avoiding such harsh language himself, Jama wrote: “This Thanksgiving, please consider some alternative options, such as listening to native speakers to broaden your perspectives, involving and educating your families on the subject, giving back to support the community or indigenous businesses.”
The Thanksgiving bashing even made its way to Current, a weather service website that also advocates greener global policies.
Even the weather service site is currently lashing out at Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving will be celebrated by many people across the country. The holiday perpetuates itself in a false story, twisting the true history of genocide and colonization into a light and largely false story,” Current wrote on Twitter.
The weather site also interviewed CeeJay Johnson Yellow Hawk, a member of the Ft. Peck Tribe in Montana, who said Thanksgiving banquets were harmful to her people.
“That doesn’t really honor us, it hurts us,” said CeeJay Currently. “I think it’s important that a conversation is started and that people know the true history of what happened during the first Thanksgiving, of the real people who have that knowledge.”
Despite the bombardment of the awake left against the holiday, many came to his defense, arguing that the story of two peoples coming together for peace was a good lesson to pass on in an increasingly polarized country.
Others took to Twitter in defense of the holiday, criticizing the ‘awake crowd’
A Twitter user named C. Ann Bernadette wrote: “I thought it was a day to give thanks for the fall harvest…are we now to believe that bread has never been broken together between people of different ages?” [origins]?’
Others expressed anger at the waking culture’s stance against the holiday.
“This movement is so unattainable and I am praying out of time soon. What’s next Christmas? Happy Thanksgiving everyone,” Twitter user Jeremy Brown wrote.
Another Twitter user by the name of Leo wrote, “Everything that ever happened will be canceled by the waking crowd sooner or later.”
