14 Thoughts to “An Anti-bvbl Tradition: An Immigration Thanksgiving”

  1. Slowpoke Rodriguez

    I agree with this video. The Native Americans basically did nothing, and they suffered for it. Meanwhile, we obviously haven’t learned from their mistake, because we’re doing nothing too. I guess we expect a different outcome?

    Thanks for sharing the video for a second year.
    I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

  6. The best humor or satire is when we poke fun at ourselves. Or as my son would say to me, lighten up, Frances.

    Happy T-Day to everyone.

  8. @JustinT
    Yeah, so do I, Justin!

    Happy Turkey Day!!!!

  9. Thanks to everyone who is pretending that a 2nd time around is a tradition. This is only Anti’s 2nd Thanksgiving. It’s still a tradition–we just made it one.

    Does anyone have special plans? Is anyone posting from out of town?

    Now, hold on just a minute here! I do not think that the Pilgrims can be classified legally as immigrants. They were Englishmen and Englishwomen. When they left England and settled in Holland, they were indeed immigrants in that country. But when they left Holland and sailed to the east coast of North America, they were simply resettling in land claimed by their English sovereign. As I recall, the land on which they eventually settled was originally given as a grant by that sovereign. Ergo, they were just changing dwelling places within the same realm. In fact, I would opine that no English subject was ever considered an “immigrant” in British America until 1776 or, possibly, 1783 (depends on who you are talking to). Colonials, yes. Settlers, yes. Indentured servants, yes. Ex-convicts, yes. But not foreign immigrants.

    Of course, the big problem was that the New England Indians had not read the fine print in that real estate deal.

  13. I don’t know. Weren’t those who went west known as emigrants?

    What’s the diff in an emigrant and an immigrant?
