FTA: "'So, we were the invaders,' complained Limbaugh. 'We were incompetent idiots. We didn't know how to feed ourselves so they came along and showed us how and that's what Thanksgiving is all about.'"

This is the most accurate thing Rush has ever said on his show. He just didn't know it.

Rush Limbaugh is a marketing genius.
 
2010-11-25 10:19:38 AM
So, if the preznit fails to mention the constitution every time he opens his mouth, that means he "has a problem with it"?

Okay, Rush.
 
2010-11-25 10:22:00 AM
Well, I guess I know what my brother in law will be talking about today. goddammit so much.
 
2010-11-25 11:05:23 AM
[Limbaugh] "The true story of Thanksgiving is how socialism failed."

Happy Derpsgiving, Rush!
 
2010-11-25 11:07:16 AM
I honestly think that if, heaven forbid, something were to happen to the President, Rush would complain that the liberal media was giving it too much attention.

I read the article aloud to the family. Mrs Earguy flatly said, "he's on drugs again."
 
2010-11-25 11:18:52 AM
But I learned about the brave and generous Indians back in the 70s when Nixon and Ford were in office...

BUT SOCIALISM!

Jeebus Frist folks. Give it a rest. Have some damn turkey and some gravy, and enjoy that corn that we got from our neighbors. How dare we acknowledge that even the Brave Pioneers got some help along the way. Heck, even were friends with their neighbors along the way.

Does this surprise anybody?

Seriously, he and the rest of his idiots are so predictable.

If Obama says it = bad.
 
2010-11-25 11:56:51 AM
Obama's socialist agenda of wealth redistribution strikes again!

On this day, we also remember those less fortunate among us. They are our neighbors and our fellow citizens, and we are committed to reaching out to them and to all of those in need in our communities.

That's not a myth, Rush, that's history.

It's not that the Pilgrims "didn't know how to feed themselves". They were in a foreign land with different climate and soil than Europe. That's not saying that the Pilgrims were "incompetent" as farmers. Only that things were different.

The Native Americans knew how to farm that land because it was their land and they've been doing it for generations. So, they taught the Pilgrims and the Pilgrims were able to thrive.

So he doesn't think that the reason for the day is in commemoration of thanks for the Native Americans bringing food to the starving Plymouth colonists? Because that is what happened. We were the incompetent idiots.

But I guess Rush can't stand actual history.

I would love for Obama to say "Rush is a fine and outstanding gentleman; a model for all citizens, who does not like to diddle with little boys while popping painkillers while cramming a turducken in his arse."

You can't, other than you have to because they control the mindset of a large block of voting sheeple.

i'm more concerned about why the pilgrims completely failed to even acknowledge the constitution during the first thanksgiving. what's those guys' problem?

You can't, but that's not relevant. Rush doesn't want people calling in and have a debate with him. He just wants people to listen obediently and hate the Black guy in the White House.

Well if 0bowma wasnt such a communist then Mr. Limbaugh wouldnt have to give people hope by being brave enough to say what we're all thinking.

Frankly the fact that the liebural media is deserting the usurper in chief should be celebrated, this is what the truth looks like libtards, nobody is going to deal with it for you, you have to do it yourself.

Thanking a bunch of people who have been dead for centuries so you can pretend to be multi-cultural?

Oh... and there is no such thing as "Native Americans"

How could anyone have viewed us anything BUT the invaders?

Percentage of america belonging to Native Americans 500 years go: 100.
Percent now: 1.

What phil doesnt mean here is that europe can forget about our contributions during ww1, those are still relevant, but stuff that happened a long time ago really should just be left in books instead of being shoved down our throats.

Case in point, the department of eduction shouldnt be attempting to brainwash children with these fanciful tales of "native" americans. Its gone man, teach people about important things like how to apply themselves and be successufl, none of this useless ancient history bullshiat.

Nope. Indian Reservations are 2.3% of the US land area, 12 reservations are larger than Rhode Island.

I wasn't trying to be specific. If you are, I recommend taking into account quality of the land, freedom granted to them on the land, and probably total wealth percentage as well.

To be truthful, a lot of them were incompetent. A good number of them were "city folk" used to being able to buy food. Just like if you did the same today, they'd figure it out, but not until after a few years of trying.

Secondly, not everyone was farming. There were a lot of guys who spent their time trying to find riches.

Lastly, being able to break virgin soil and grow enough of a crop on your first try to feed everyone in the colony would have been difficult even under the best of circumstances.

My favorite native american lie is that they were tree hugger hippies, rather than the large industrious earth shapers that they really were.

Holmberg was wrong to think these people were in a constant state of desperation their entire existence

FTA: "'So, we were the invaders,' complained Limbaugh. 'We were incompetent idiots. We didn't know how to feed ourselves so they came along and showed us how and that's what Thanksgiving is all about.'


Yes I mean I went to a farking conservative christian school as a child and they taught us this. The farking tale of Squanto audiobook from Focus on the Family that I listened to as a child kind of lays this out.

The farking pilgrims were starving to death and the local Indians came and taught them how to plant and protect food and created the first Thanksgiving. Yes. That's the farking story. And it's farking recognized

http://books.google.com/books?id=tYecOAN1cwwC&printsec=titlepage#v=onepage&q&f= f alse

From William Brewards own journal, you know, he was the guy who lived through the thing. After entries describing the harsh winter months that killed 50 of the 100 people that inhabited the earliest plymouth colony...

But about the 16th of March a certain Indian came boldly amongst them and spoke to them in broken english which they could wel understand but marvelled at it. At length they understood by discourse with him that he was not of these parts but belonged to the eastern parts where some English ships came to fish with whom he was aquainted and could name sundry of them by their names amongst whome he had got his language. He became profitable to them in acquating them with the many things concerning the state of the country in the eastern parts where he lived which was afterward profitable unto them. As also of the people here of their names number and strength, of their situation and distance from this place and who was the cheefe amongst them. His name was Samaset he told them also of another Indian whose name was Squanto, a native of this place who had been in England and could speak better english than him self.

Being after some time of entertainment and gifts, dismissed, a whiel after he came again and five more with him and they brought again all the tools that were stolen away before and made way for the coming of their great Sachem called Massasoyt who about four or five dayss after came with the chiefe of his friends and other attendance with the aforesaid Squanto. With whom after friendly entetainment and some gifts given him they made a peace with him.

After these things he returned to his place called Sowams some 40 miles from this place, but Squanto continued with them and was their interpeter and was a special instrument sent of God for their good beyond their expectation. He directed them how to set their corn, where to take fish, and to procure other commodities and was also their pilot to bring them to unknown places for their profit, and never left them till he died.


So basically yes. The pilgrims were dying until Indians came along and taught them how to survive. The own farking head of the pilgrims said this in a journal he wrote 300 years ago.

WHY THE fark ARE WE DEBATING THIS?

The people that swear he's not a troll are the same people who think Glen Beck and Rush Limbaugh are not trolls. I.e. dittoheads
