Do Republicans Celebrate Thanksgiving?
I am puzzled as to whether today's Republicans celebrate Thanksgiving. I mean Thanksgiving is supposedly the time when families reunite and thank their good fortunes for what they have accomplished in life, etc. What do Republicans celebrate? Do they celebrate denying food stamps to the working poor, children, seniors, and military veterans? Or do they celebrate denying unemployment insurance to the unemployed? I ask these questions because I haven't seen them do anything else for America. I guess I could include the constant GOP lying about Obamacare and immigration reform or jobs which they continue to do. So in the end, I guess my confusion arises from the policies they expound and deeds they do like, you know, reaching out to minority voters while passing voter suppression laws in the states. Or maybe, their unrelenting attack on women's rights to healthcare, abortions, fair wages, and respect.
Oh but I forgot one thing, they celebrate money! Yes, that is it. They celebrate the tons of money they receive from low-information voters (otherwise known as fools) who support their racist attacks on the President, their anti-gay rhetoric, and stalling on immigration reform. Of course these donors believe strongly that people using the social safety net are freeloaders and bums and of course the recipients are all minorities. Yes, that must be what Republicans celebrate on Thanksgiving: their success at earning money from heartless fools, racists, and Christian hypocrites, steeped in religious myths and content that ignores the realities of today's America. I am surprised that I did not understand this before when reviewing the history of the Republican Party the last thirty years. So please forgive my ignorance.
