You Too Can Have A Woke Thanksgiving If You’re Unhinged

This comes yet again from the unhinged tools at Newsweek, which is now apparently attempting to compete with Slate and Salon for nuttiest web outlet

From the link

Media outlets have taken notice and are offering quick guidelines on how to best avoid stirring the pot on Turkey Day. But Thanksgiving offers a unique opportunity to civically engage with those closest to us. It’s the dirty work all democracies depend on. So, in an effort to promote thoughtful discussion, here’s Newsweek’s guide to having a conscious, or “woke”, Thanksgiving.

Here are the ideas (you can hit the link if you want the moonbat details

  • Center the struggles facing Native American communities. (you know, those people far, far away that Liberals never see and never meet in places liberals would never go)
  • Volunteer at a local food drive or soup kitchen—and then keep doing it. (this is the kind of thing Christians do just because, not because they are attempting to make themselves feel smug and superior)
  • Climate change is real, so don’t waste food. (better yet, don’t eat)
  • The NFL hid the truth about concussion for decades. Don’t let them get away with it. (well, certainly, this is a real issue. The suggestion here is to nag everyone with it.)
  • The problem is much bigger than Donald Trump. (so, nag everyone about the GOP, tax cuts for the rich, refusing to do amnesty, etc. Better yet, send a check to the IRS and take a bunch of illegals in to your own casa)

So, there you go. A woke T-giving.

BTW, over at the Washington Post, Jeb Lund advises to skip all the guides to arguing with your relatives and friends on Thanksgiving. Even as he positions it from a leftist moonbat #resist POV, he makes sense.

And, unless I run across something really, really good, no more politics, immigration, climate change, etc posts till Friday. Everything will be something else.

Dreamers On Hunger Strike Till Thanksgiving For Clean Amnesty Bill

Remember back in the beginning of October when I mentioned that illegal alien “Dreamers” and their supporters were starting to make noise in favor of a “clean immigration bill”, where the bill would only be about giving legalized status on the way to amnesty, and not include any sort of border security or anything else?

(Breitbart) Illegal aliens shielded from deportation under the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program are staging a hunger strike in the days leading up to Thanksgiving Day.

The group of illegal aliens from New Jersey have promised to not eat until Thanksgiving, according to WNYC, while they lobby Republican members of Congress to pass an amnesty for the nearly 800,000 DACA recipients in the U.S.

“I’m sitting here looking at my last meal and trying to imagine what my meals would be like if I was sent back to Mexico,” DACA illegal alien Adriana Delgado told WNYC.

“People think that I’m crazy for doing this hunger strike but I’m willing to suffer for three days if it means not suffering for a lifetime,” Delgado continued. “There will be thousands of families who will have broken dinner tables if nothing is done.”

But not willing to suffer through Thanksgiving. According to most articles. Only one, down at the end of this post, says different

The group of illegal aliens is demanding an unconditional amnesty that permanently allows all DACA recipients to remain in the United States and puts them on a pathway to citizenship, when they can eventually bring their foreign relatives to the U.S. as well.

The DACA recipients say they are not satisfied with an amnesty that ties the legalization of potentially 3.3 million eligible illegal aliens to pro-American immigration reforms like an end to chain migration or the termination of the Diversity Visa Lottery.

Over to the WNYC article cited

According to Make The Road NJ, which is organizing the hunger strike, the dreamers will be staying at a church all week and visiting the offices of the five New Jersey Republicans in Congress. Advocates want a “clean” bill passed by Congress that is not tied to conservative immigration proposals, like funding for more deportations or construction of a larger wall on the Mexican border.

The Trentonian (Trenton, NJ) features this photo at the beginning of an opinion piece (which also makes the claim that they are staying on hunger strike through Thanksgiving, and is the only one to do so)

As I noted back in October

This is the exact kind of thing that will cause people who are willing to consider some sort of legal option (I would support Rand Paul’s legislation, though there are still a few issues) to turn away. The illegals want to have their cake and eat it too. If there are no border protections, no measures to reduce illegal immigration, no penalties, all those who are open to a compromise will turn away, including more than enough elected Republicans who will vote any sort of “clean bill” down.

And then where will you be, illegals/Dreamers? Calling for legislation that gives you everything while enabling even more illegal immigration is not the answer. If legalization for Dreamers fails, this will be on you. You really shouldn’t be given any sort of legalization pathway. Do you want to destroy the change to get one? Choose wisely.

We are not going to give up amnesty for nothing in return. And people here illegally do not get to dictate what should happen. They should be asking nicely, not demanding.

There’s A Climate (scam) Dark Side Behind Your Thanksgiving Or Something

Yet another in a long line of unhinged, shrieking, annoying, deranged bat-guano insane articles on Thanksgiving. Which will be recycled for Christmas, you know

Behind the delicious foods, Thanksgiving has a dark side

The shame of chowing down enough turkey to feed an entire village of Pilgrims isn’t the only reason to feel guilty this Thanksgiving. The environmental impact of a turkey feast for eight is approximately 44 pounds of carbon dioxide, a gas that contributes significantly to global warming. At the root cause of all this damage are a few of the staples that make up our dinner table this Thursday.

1. Gobble gobbling up the Earth’s atmosphere

About 60 percent of the Thanksgiving carbon footprint comes from the life cycle of the turkey alone. Though red meat like beef generates the greatest amount of greenhouse gases, farm-raised poultry like turkey is still considered to be “high impact.”

If you couldn’t care less about climate change (or remain one of those that deny its existence), something to take into consideration is the tremendous amount of waste involved in making a turkey dinner. It’ll takes at least 915,200 barrels of oil to produce and ship all the turkeys Americans eat, according to the Center for Food Safety.

So if you’re feeling a bit guilty this Thursday, pardon the turkey, make less of it and try composting your table scraps.

Notice that Climahysteric Kirthi Dronamraju doesn’t recommend “don’t have turkey if you believe in anthropogenic climate change.” As typical, Warmists are advised to just make a token amend afterwards.

Kirthi also tells us about all the evil carbon pollution from planes, trains, and automobiles for the trips taken. No recommendation for Warmists to just stay home.

Your “beige foods”, meaning all the sides, are bad, as well, because of all the road miles. But, hey, you can go to your local fancy, expensive, local farmer’s market and get the veggies there. Though, according to Kirthi, you’ll pay a whole lot more. I guess that’s something in Liberal World areas. The farmer’s market’s down here are not expensive.

And then we’re on to food waste. Well, yes, this is a real issue. Recycling and composting are nice, but, good luck composting in a Leftist run city, which often have laws against doing this within city limits, because it can be dirty and smelly. Environmentally, limiting food waste is a good idea. It’s also good for your pocketbook

While you’re composting your biodegradable scraps instead of sending them away to landfills, consider going completely paperless at the table. Stick with reusable forks, knives, spoons, plates and glasses, as well as cloth napkins (not paper ones) and tablecloths. And rather than throwing away meals, freeze or recycle them for delicious leftovers.

It’s so tedious that Warmists hijack real environmental issues for their own unhinged purposes. It’s also tedious that they have to ruin everything, especially holidays, with their climate scam rants.

NPR: Thanksgiving Is A Great Time To Talk About End-Of-Life Care

It’s the ideal time to have these conversations or something. Let’s first define this, since the article sorta dinks and dunks around what “end of life care” means. The National Institute On Aging writes “End-of-life care is the term used to describe the support and medical care given during the time surrounding death.” This could go on for days, weeks, or even months

This Thanksgiving, Carve Out Time To Talk About End-Of-Life Wishes

The roast turkey and pecan pie may be the same as always, but growing numbers of families plan to add a tradition to their Thanksgiving holiday this week: a frank talk about their wishes for end-of-life care.

Paul Malley, president of Aging with Dignity, the agency behind Five Wishes, a popular living will template, says requests for the documents that guide decisions surrounding serious illness and death typically surge starting now.

“We see a bit of a Thanksgiving rush and a bit of a Christmas rush in December,” says Malley, who notes that 30 million copies of Five Wishes have been distributed since 1998.

Now, turkey dinner with a side dish of death isn’t everyone’s idea of a festive meal. But end-of-life planning advocates say the holidays are an ideal time to have these conversations.

No. Just stop. These people. Good grief.

While it’s an important topic, it’s not really the thing you discuss on Thanksgiving, especially between dinner and desert, just because the family is all gathered together.

Goodman says sees a shift in the culture surrounding end-of-life wishes, even in the five years since The Conversation Project started.

Back then, the specter of “death panels” nearly derailed Obamacare. Today, end-of-life conversations are being paid for by Medicare and books like Atul Gawande’s Being Mortal have topped the best-seller list.

In other words, we need the Helpful Hand Of Government to enable these conversations. Sigh.

Meanwhile

It’s Your Civic Duty to Ruin Thanksgiving by Bringing Up Trump

It’s late-November 2017, and you know what that means: Every man you’ve ever seen on TV for any reason has just been unmasked as a woman-hating sewer ghoul. Also, it’s time to ruin your Trump-supporting family’s Thanksgiving—for America!

These frickin’ people.

Kiribati, Soon To Be Demolished By Hotcoldwetdry, Finds The Solution

For a long, long time now, we’ve heard that island nations will soon disappear from anthropogenic climate change caused sea rise, primarily from the use of fossil fuels. Kiribati has been not only one of the most vocal, but has been held up constantly as what doom looks like, much like with polar bears. What’s their solution? (via Watts Up With That?)

As climate change threatens islands, Kiribati’s president plans development

The low-lying Pacific island nation of Kiribati is one of the parts of the world most threatened by climate change and rising sea levels. Scientists say the islands could be uninhabitable within decades, and in recent years, some leaders there have begun planning for a worst-case scenario that could involve relocating the population to other countries.

However, in a video presentation to the international climate conference in Bonn, Germany, last week, the president of Kiribati appeared to be turning away from such a plan.

“Climate change is indeed a serious problem,” President H.E Taneti Maamau said in the video.”But we don’t believe that Kiribati will sink like the Titanic ship. Our country, our beautiful lands, are created by the hands of God.”

I guess the climate (scam) cash from Europe and Canada is not showing up fast enough

Later in the video, far from discussing abandoning the islands, a narrator instead proclaims the goal of promoting tourism by attracting foreign investors to develop “5-star eco-friendly resorts that would promote world-class diving, fishing and surfing experiences” on currently uninhabited islands. (snip)

Government officials say they are working on a plan to raise the level of a large area of currently uninhabitable land to make it habitable.

In other words, they are going to use vast amounts of fossil fuels for construction in order to entice people to take lots of fossil fueled flights for vacations.

Media Seems Rather Shocked That A Temporary Program Would Be Deemed Temporary

Many outlets are running pieces which seemed surprised, even shocked that the Trump administration would finally end a program which is explained in the name

U.S. to end temporary residence for nearly 60,000 Haitians

The Trump administration has given nearly 60,000 Haitians with provisional legal residency in this country 18 months to leave, announcing Monday that it will not renew the Temporary Protected Status that has allowed them to remain here for more than seven years.

The decision came after the Department of Homeland Security determined that the “extraordinary conditions” justifying their presence in the United States following a 2010 earthquake “no longer exist,” according to a senior administration official.

“Since the 2010 earthquake, the number of displaced people in Haiti has decreased by 97 percent,” acting homeland security secretary Elaine Duke said in a statement. “Significant steps have been taken to improve the stability and quality of life for Haitian citizens, and Haiti is able to safely receive traditional levels of returned citizens.”

It’s all in the name: Temporary Protected Status. They’ve been given 18 months to get their affairs in order and head back home.

But the Trump administration has repeatedly noted that the program was meant to be temporary, not a way for people to become long-term legal residents of the United States. Administration officials have said that decisions on further extensions would be made on the basis of whether initial justifications for protection still exist.

That’s the point of temporary. This applies to many other groups, such as Nicaraguans, Hondurans, Salvadorans, and others.

“It appears ideology won over a practical application of the law,” said Kevin Appleby, senior director of the New York-based Center for Migration Studies.

Rocio Saenz, executive vice president of the Service Employees International Union, which claims thousands of members living here under TPS, called the decision “heartbreaking, and harmful in every way.”

Remember, these same people go apoplectic when the U.S. gets involved militarily around the world to protect people. I guess they only care when we bring in vast loads of people who do not speak our language, do not share our culture or values, have little in the way of 1st world skills, and will essentially be wards of the state.

Say, Could Turkey Poop Help Stop ‘Climate Change’?

This is obviously time for Thanksgiving

Could turkey poop help stop climate change? An Israeli research team thinks so.

None of us want to think too hard about the turkeys we are about to eat on Thanksgiving. We especially don’t need to think about the excrement they produce.

But what if that excrement could help halt climate change?

According to researchers at Israel’s Ben-Gurion University, turkey excrement — along with waste produced by other poultry, like chicken — could partially replace coal as a renewable energy resource and reduce global greenhouse gas emissions.

“Treated excrement from turkeys, chickens and other poultry, when converted to combustible solid biomass fuel, could replace approximately 10 percent of coal used in electricity generation, reducing greenhouse gases and providing an alternative energy source,” the university said Monday in a news release.

Well, it’s good that they’re talking about poop, since that’s what this whole thing is: a bunch of mule fritters propagated by pull who are so full of it that their shoes are swimming in brown stuff and we need hip waders to get past them.

As a bonus, we have this

Yes, it’s as stupid as you think. Apparently, because one woman, Brigid Shulte, married a jerk, well, every married man is now a 1950’s sexist.

BTW, why is that everyone needs to tell everyone in the world their Victimhood story?
