These teachers say they’re telling ‘true story’ of Thanksgiving. Some critics disagree.

The true story: Before the Pilgrims went west across the ocean Squanto went east, converted to Catholicism in Spain and then went to England and then back home.

The Pilgrims practiced Socialism. It failed miserably. They almost starved to death, if not for the Native Americans led by Squanto.

The Pilgrims switched from Socialism to Capitalism and thrived with much extra food to share. The Protestant Pilgrims were as thankful to the Catholic Squanto and the Native Americans as they were to God for their bounty and for surviving their first year of failure.

Isn’t that the historically accurate nut shell?

Social studies has replaced history and civics and should be discontinued NOW !

What saved the Pilgrims was they abandoned the “commune” lifestyle, sharing the labor to plant and harvest. The lazy ones didn’t work, and they almost starved. They then divided the land and each had to produce his/her own food. Then they prospered. Test of Socialism. Big fail.

Yes, that is the true story. The Pilgrims corrected their experiment in socialism and gave each person or family their own land to work. Under the shared commune lifestyle the lazy did not work and brought down the workers.

As an experiment in socialism it did demonstrate on a small scale what happens when socialism overcomes a nation and the workers cannot provide for the takers.

“I don’t care, I just like turkey.”

I like cod, which is quite possibly (and historically) what the pilgrims ate.

... I bet the Indians wish they had really good border security, did not have open borders, were not fighting each other all the time, and were able to clearly know who they were letting into "their" land.

Let's add that the Indians wish they had modern arms and that they would have fought to the death before allowing anyone to disarm them.

There were several French & Indian Wars (though they fought on both sides), and plenty of Indians fought for Britain in the American Revolution.

I’ll bet she woke up in a warm bed in a nice house and not a teepee. Such hypocrites all.

And she uses modern medicine, drives an automobile, uses an airline for travel, uses hot and cold running water, uses modern plumbing, has a flushing toilet, well, you get the point.

Perhaps it is time that she be told that if she hates white people that badly then stop using any and all goods, services, and products that were invented, developed by, or improved upon by white people.

It would be a hoot just to see her reaction.

So, she’s saying the people who were already there died because they welcomed or at least didn’t or couldn’t fight off invaders from outside.

Perhaps there is something for children to learn from that.

LOL - Good one!
