What’s the Truth About the First Thanksgiving?

Should Americans celebrate Thanksgiving as a day of gratitude? Or should they mourn it as a day of guilt? Michael Medved, author of The American Miracle, shares the fascinating story of the first Thanksgiving.

____________________________________________

Food, football, and…oppression. That’s what Thanksgiving has come to mean to many Americans.

Back in 2007, Seattle public school officials made national news by describing the holiday as a “time of mourning” and a “bitter reminder of 500 years of betrayal.”

This new narrative describes the Pilgrims as arrogant oppressors who fled persecution only to become persecutors themselves, depriving Native Americans of their land and their lives.

But this is wrong on every count.

First of all, the Pilgrims didn’t cross the ocean to flee persecution—or even England. They’d been living for over a decade in Holland, Europe’s most tolerant nation, and a haven for religious dissenters. Free from interference by the Church of England, they feared seduction—not persecution, worrying that their children would be corrupted by the materialistic Dutch culture.

Michael Medved has recorded a superb collection
of audio recordings about American History.

Below is the latest in the series of PragerU short educational videos.  This one is of Michael Medved talking about the First Thanksgiving.   You can link the YouTube video here as well.

There are many good resources for learning about the Pilgrims’ “first Thanksgiving.”

Sad to day, there are even more resources to find lies about the founding of our country.  Advanced Placement (AP) American History is one of those dishonest resources that push ugly lies about our founding.  AP courses in general, are painted as the very best schools have to offer (plus they provide cheap college credit, an enticement for parents).

Text of an email that arrived today from Prager University:

“Food, football, and…oppression. That’s what Thanksgiving has come to mean for many Americans. Why? Because countless schools tell students that the Pilgrims fled persecution only to become persecutors themselves by depriving Native Americans of their land and their lives. Is that really what happened? Were previous generations of Americans sold a romanticized version of the Pilgrim story? In this week’s video, nationally syndicated radio host Michael Medved tells the truth about the first Thanksgiving.

0262_Jeffco Supt Glass pushing bad teacher resources and curriculum_ “Trump Era Chaos stirred up the hatred that already existed” (editorial by Roberta Sutton)_Blogs on corrupted AP US History_Link to Prager U video about SPLC

From Roberta’s letter:  “All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, . . . ”

The hateful supplemental material (Educator Resources) — recently recommended by Superintendent Jason Glass, for K-12 teachers in Jefferson County (Colorado) Public Schools —  is only an expansion of what public school children have been fed for years (this includes the teaching of AP U.S. History in recent years).

At the end of this blog post, is   1)  how to write and send letters to the editor; and 2) other blogs on this site, that talk about the superintendent’s new controversial resource list and curriculumNote:  The School Board of Education is supposed to decide on curriculum to be used in the classes — not the superintendent3)  list of blogs on this site about the AP U.S. History mess.

Trump Era Chaos”
Letter by Roberta Sutton
_____________________________________________________

We’ve all noticed what chaos has emerged since Donald Trump’s election.

Right away there was a march of women against Trump who were wearing “Vagina Hats.”  There has been the surfacing of Antifa with their masked assailants, and their destruction and mayhem in Berkeley.  The NFL players have complaints about our police, and because of that, they  refuse to honor our nation and its flag and anthem.  All of them “attack” the President.

All of this is not BECAUSE Trump was elected, but his election has REVEALED what already existed.  The hatred and anti-Americanism was already there, but it was stirred up and brought to the fore because someone with a different belief than theirs was in charge—and Trump was going to be leading the nation in a different direction—one they didn’t agree with.

A little over a week ago, one of my sisters-in-law sent me the 1939 YouTube with Kate Smith introducing “God Bless America”.  I thoroughly enjoyed watching it in the past, and was more than happy to watch it again.  In addition to the YouTube mentioned, below there is a second YouTube, and also some information about Kate Smith and about the many years she brought entertainment to families across America.

Why was Kate Smith so popular?

Many people today say that Kate Smith was popular only because of her voice (which people loved).  They say that if people could have seen her and how over-weight she was, she would not have been popular at all.

Well, people definitely did see her — and loved her.  Not only did she have a powerful voice, and was able to sing about anything — but she was also interesting and had interesting guests.  Kate Smith had a radio, television, and recording career spanning five decades.

Millions of people loved her.

“Her inspiring rendition [of “God Bless America”] went on to sell millions of war bonds and even helped a hockey team in the 1970s win the Stanley Cup.” [source of this quote]

From 1950 to 1954 she had “The Kate Smith Hour,” a variety program which aired on CBS television with host Kate Smith.  Stars: Kate Smith, Bill Norvas and The Upstarts

Later in this blog piece, if you wish, you can watch a YouTube of a YouTube of a 1953 “The Kate Smith Hour” show (just under an hour long).

Here is a link to a short biography of Kate Smith, and notes. Continue reading

0234_Proposed Local Improvement District (LID) to be pushed onto Evergreen, Colorado_ Dean Dalvit video June 6, 2017 at Evergreen Lake House_the Delphi Method/Technique

Donna Jack
July 17, 2017

A meeting in June, that will be considered
to have gotten “public input” and
to have shown “public support”

Not many people knew of the June 6, 2017 meeting at the Evergreen Lake House – nor did they know of its significance.  Questions were not allowed during the meeting, though people were promised that they could ask questions as soon as the formal presentation was over.  They were not told that they would be unable to ask any questions in front of other people, but would be broken up into groups after stretching their legs.

The Delphi Method or
Delphi Technique

This is the Delphi Method, a tactic I have witnessed repeatedly  in the Jefferson County Colorado public school district.  It is used at almost every one of their public forums and workshops.  No matter what the meeting, there is no real input from the public, no answering of questions, no discussion — at the most, people are “given choices” that are already on the table to pick from.  It is a tactic meant to keep people from asking any questions that are answered in public, and keep them from having any influence on public opinion and outcomes.  The outcome is “predetermined.”  No discussion is allowed for others to hear.  It is meant to muzzle people and guarantee that those in “control” can bully their own way through.

An excellent, detailed article you can read on this technique is :  “The Delphi Technique:  Let’s Stop Being Manipulated!” by Albert V. Burns.
http://www.vlrc.org/articles/110.html

“The process used to ‘facilitate’ the meeting is called the Delphi Technique. This Delphi Technique was developed by the RAND Corporation for the U.S. Department of Defense back in the 1950s. It was originally intended for use as a psychological weapon during the cold war.

“However, it was soon recognized that the steps of Delphi could be very valuable in manipulating ANY meeting toward a predetermined end.” Continue reading

Our right to own property and be able to make decisions about our own property, is shrinking at an alarming rate.  When property rights are destroyed, also destroyed are “free enterprise, the American way of life, and ultimately Freedom itself.”

Introduction to “North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.”

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
Said by Ronald Reagan – quotations by Ronald Reagan
40th president of US (1911 – 2004)

We must do our best to stand up for freedom, and protect our children from the “one world” “godless” teachings that are being infused into the minds of students in almost all public schools, and in many private schools — including Christian schools and other religious schools.  It begins in nurseries, pre-schools and day-cares – and continues in all forms of public (and even private) education – even at Christian universities and seminaries.  The popular media in our country continues the narrative of one world without God.

“Without God, all things are permitted.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Eliminate recognition of the existence and intervention of God, and you have totalitarian states.

A friend of mine who escaped Communist China tells a similar story as the young lady from North Korea — this similar story exists across the world — repeated accounts of the fear, brain-washing, and brutality like this young Korean witnessed and experienced as she grew up under Communism in China.

North Korean Refugee Tells Her Story.

 Listen to this dear young lady who is a refugee from North Korea.  Her account is heartbreaking…and a foreboding warning to us.  Centralized control leads to uncontrolled abuses.
