Thanksgiving 2020: What’s wrong with this picture?

 

In past years, we’ve interspersed this legendary illustration by Norman Rockwell with those depicting the first Thanksgiving. Rockwell’s patriotic art was part of theFour Freedomscollection from 1943. Now, newly enlightened by the left, it’s apparent we were tone deaf, pigment deficient and ignoring those possessing superior intelligence. We are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic in a BLM era. Sensitivity should define us, taking precedence over our desire to celebrate the uniquely American holiday with friends and family.

By the skewed standards of the left, the family Rockwood portrayed is offensive in its whiteness, with not even an interracial couple, non-white or same-sex married friends partaking of the non-vegan meal. Still they smile, in a glaring affront to awareness. The local newspaper’s front page depicts an illustration of a black family zooming Thanksgiving.

In 2020, we dare not gather around a table. New York’s Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a democrat, advises we tell our family, “I love you so much, I’m not going to have Thanksgiving with you.” This reversal followed criticism after he told a local TV station he had invited his 89-year-old mother and two daughters to Albany for Thanksgiving.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, another democrat, has banned holiday “singing, chanting, shouting, and physical exertion,” while mandating masks in your home, only to be removed briefly while eating or drinking, as long as participants stay at least 6 feet away from everyone outside their own household, and put their face covering back on as soon as they finish eating.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, yet another democrat hypocrite, has faced intense backlash for her recent lockdown orders including canceling Thanksgiving plans, which came days after she joined large crowds celebrating the Harris/Biden election.

Denver democrat Mayor Michael Hancock has not only lectured city residents to refrain from unnecessary travel and gatherings, he placed Denver under highest Level Red COVID-19 restrictions a week ago, prohibiting all personal gatherings, including Thanksgiving celebrations.

Hancock also sent these words in an email to city staff: “With the continued rise in cases, I’m urging you to refrain from travel this Thanksgiving holiday. For my family that means canceling our traditional gathering of our extended family.” He warned that anyone who travels out of state should quarantine for 14 days and will need to use paid time off for the leave if they’re unable to work from home. The directive preceded hypocrite Hancock hopping on a plane to Mississippi to have Thanksgiving with his wife and daughter. His son is also a sterling character.

The CDC has issued holiday recommendations including bringing your own food, drinks, plates, cups and utensils. The hostess who has spent days baking pies, making cranberry sauce, a family favorite stuffing recipe, preparing homemade whipped cream, rolls and organizing an anticipated traditional turkey feast will be thrilled when you walk in with a pizza.

For a refreshing reminder that there is another way of governance, do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation written by President George Washington in 1789. It reminds us all that a true leader acknowledges there is a higher, non-political power, to whom we should extend gratitude.

President Donald Trump’s 2020 inspirational proclamation is a fitting tribute to the holiday.

REMINDER TO OUR READERS: SRAZ has established a new policy. The word “democrat” or its derivatives will no longer be capitalized on this site.

    The awful truth is, George Washington would have been ridiculed for this beautiful Thanksgiving Proclamation today. President Trump will also go down in history as a man who made a wonderful impact on this nation. It’s important we teach our children and theirs about this exceptional leader. They won’t learn it in public school where far left indoctrination prevails.

    Happy Thanksgiving to the SRAZ writers and commenters. I’ve learned a lot coming to this site and have recommended it to others!

    There is hope as we have now seen the submissions of Sydney Powell and the start of overturning of the opinions of no fraud as more people are seeing the light.

    First, Happy Thanksgiving to SRAZ & ALL who participate/visit here! GOD BLESS US ALL!

    Second, in my usual, “not so humble” opinion, it’s not just these dimocrap/socialist hypocrite “napoleon-complex” guvnah’s & mayors who are ruining America’s Thanksgiving holidays…think about who’s enforcing these un-Constitutional “rules”…I mean, didn’t those people take an OATH??? I applaud those Police Chief’s & Sherriff’s who are saying NO to them! But, what about those who aren’t observing their oaths? I mean, is CHP pulling people over & demanding to know where they’re going? Is the Chicago P.D. peeping into Citizen’s windows to make sure that people are “obeying” these draconian “rules”? It occurs to me that American’s simply MUST STAND UP & say…uuummm…no. Nope, You don’t get to tell me what to do, & I won’t do what you “tell” me to do!

    President “elect” creepy uncle joe’s plans to change America (ie: gun laws) are on IGNORE at my house, as was “Sith Lord dooshey’s” previous lockdown orders. These idiots didn’t, & WON’T change a THING at our house. I Swore an Oath…that I was never told to “stand down” from. Part of that oath means Standing UP to these evil …people.

    …just sayin’…

    Although I miss the simpler Thanksgiving messages, this one hit the nail on the head! We are living in unprecedented times. I mean that in the pre-pandemic sense. Democrats aren’t satisfied with governing. They want to rule.
    Yet wherever they have control, cities are dilapidating, filled with crime and have homeless addicts, human feces and hypodermic needles littering the downtown sidewalks. Have any of you been to San Francisco lately? Upscale stores and fine restaurants are gone. It’s not the place Tony Bennett sang about. Its ruination is replicated in other dem-run cities, but I travel there most often for business and have witnessed the havoc.

    Ann Coulter wrote a powerful column which I read earlier today. It’s titled, “Have a Historically Accurate Thanksgiving!” She gets it right!! I highly recommend it.

    Best wishes and a Happy Thanksgiving to all in the SRAZ “family.”
