Proving once again that liberalism is an ideology based on hate and rage, Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, compared the founding fathers to Nazis and called Thanksgiving a “white-supremacist holiday” in an article posted Wednesday at the George Soros-connected Alternet.
“One indication of moral progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day and its self-indulgent family feasting with a National Day of Atonement accompanied by a self-reflective collective fasting,” Jensen wrote.
“Instead, we should atone for the genocide that was incited — and condoned — by the very men we idolize as our ‘heroic’ founding fathers,” he says.
Jensen says that since 1970, “indigenous people have offered such a model” by engaging “in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock, Massachusetts, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas.”
Got that? The Pilgrims were part of an “invasion.” The fact that they were attempting to flee religious persecution apparently means nothing to Jensen.
“Not only is the thought of such a change in this white-supremacist holiday impossible to imagine, but the very mention of the idea sends most Americans into apoplectic fits — which speaks volumes about our historical hypocrisy and its relation to the contemporary politics of empire in the United States,” he added.
He goes on to cherry-pick quotes from George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Theodore Roosevelt before comparing them to Nazis.
“How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis?” he asked.
“Jensen has a long career in both working journalism and academia, including work as a copy editor at The St. Paul Pioneer Press and the St. Petersburg Times, as well as ‘volunteer editing and writing for the Texas Triangle, Austin (weekly statewide lesbian/gay paper),'” CNS News reported Thursday.
Now, he is working to shape the minds of a future generation of “journalists” who will occupy “newsrooms” at places like MSNBC.
CNS went on to say that Jensen bashes America on a regular basis on a site that is “part of the George-Soros-supported Media Consortium.”
“It is one of 58 left-wing media operations that aim to create a progressive ‘echo chamber,’” CNS said.
With professors like Jensen teaching journalism, it is no wonder American distrust of the media is at an all-time high.
