“In 1620, a small band of Pilgrims came to this continent — refugees who had fled persecution and violence in their native land. Nearly 400 years later, we remember their part in the American story, and we honor the men and women who helped them in their time of need.”

Today, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving because dissenting English Protestants known as Pilgrims who sailed to North America to establish an English colony did so as part of their Protestant Christian religious practice. Not merely reform-minded English Protestants known as Puritans who sought to purify the Church of England from all Roman Catholic practices, the Pilgrims were separatists who believed that no hope existed for purifying the Church of England.
The Pilgrims arranged for Dutch investors to finance the ships and supplies for the Pilgrims to establish of a profit-seeking colony on land in America owned by the English king. The Pilgrims struck a deal with the King of England through his agents to obtain a land patent granting them the right to settle on the English land in North America.
However, the first Thanksgiving decreed by Congress was to celebrate a war victory. Congress decreed the first national day of Thanksgiving on Thursday, December 18, 1777, to commemorate the American victory at the Battle of Saratoga after the surrender of General John Burgoyne and 5,000 British troops in October 1777. In proclaiming the first national day of thanksgiving, Congress wrote,
“It is therefore recommended to the Legislative or executive Powers of these UNITED STATES, to set apart THURSDAY, the eighteenth Day of December next, for solemn THANKSGIVING and PRAISE; That at one Time and with one Voice the good People may express the grateful Feelings of their Hearts, and consecrate themselves to the Service of their Divine Benefactor”
The history-idiot-in-chief should know this: CHRISTIANS FOUNDED AMERICA, NOT ATHEISTS, NOR JEWS, NOR HINDUS, NOR BUDDHISTS, NOR MUSLIMS.
Unlike 10,000 Syrians engaging in exodus from the Middle East, there were only 102 Pilgrims. More so, the Pilgrims were self-funded, adventurers. The U.S. Congress is funding the Syrian exodus from Syria to the USA. More so, Congress gets its funding from borrowing and taxes you to pay its massive credit card.
The 10,000 Syrians engaging in exodus are mostly needed muslim beggars many of whom denounce Christian belief and who want to see the world fall to muslim Sharia law.
Obama is living proof that Americans need a constitutional amendment barring anyone from becoming president of the United States who has at least one immigrant parent.
Obama is disloyal to the core. Obama hates Americans, especially white protestant Christian Americans. White protestant Christian Americans comprise the lion's share of American population — 79.96% white, 51.3% protestant. It matters not if most choose not to attend a church or affiliate with any protestant church.
You can watch the deplorable, denigrating idiot, the leader of the free-world, lie about Americans and American history for his personal agenda and political gain on Thanksgiving.
At least as of this writing, Americans need only suffer 420 days with the rather disgusting, anti-American.
