A Separatist Thanksgiving

(i don't know what this has to do with anything)
by Michael A. Hoffman II

by all accounts this man appears to be a whackjob but this is still interesting.

"...Tell someone about a separatist Thanksgiving these days and an excitable citizen might just turn you in as an un-American subversive to the "human rights" thought police at the Justice Department.

...the concept that America was founded on the principles of compulsory integration is also looking ever more threadbare.

This is perhaps most apposite during our national Thanksgiving holiday which, when contemplated beyond the culinary silhouette of "Turkey Day," furnishes us with at least a nodding acquaintance with the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock.

...One aspect of the modern disease is the refusal to name a thing. Weasel words are substituted, neologisms are coined and origins are thereby suppressed. We live in the age of compression and abbreviation. We are in too much of a hurry even to call our states by their actual names, so that Pennsylvania becomes PA, Minnesota is MN and our "zip" decodes the resulting enigma with a string of dull numbers..."
