President Donald Trump mentioned at a recent rally about how there are some folks who would like to change the name of Thanksgiving. Media said he “claimed” this, acting as though it was untrue.
But there are folks who somehow think that celebrating Thanksgiving is somehow a bad thing and instead talk about calling it a “Day of Mourning” or, like Colin Kaepernick, “Un-Thanksgiving.”
Now, leave aside that the first Thanksgiving was actually about the Pilgrims and Native Americans coming together in harmony. So one would think it should be an idea supported by all.
But not so much with some radical leftists like Kaepernick.
From Fox News:
On Thursday, Kaepernick spoke at the “Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony,” also known as “Unthanksgiving,” on Alcatraz Island in San Francisco, California. The event is intended to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Native Americans occupying the famous island, which previously served as the site of a federal prison.
“Spent the morning at the Indigenous People’s Sunrise Ceremony on the 50 year anniversary of the Occupation of Alcatraz,” Kaepernick tweeted on Thanksgiving day.
“The US government has stolen over 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people. Thank you to my Indigenous family, I’m with you today and always.”
Kaepernick tweeted a video of the occupation of Alcatraz by radical Native Americans supporters 50 years ago, with the folks at the time claiming they were seizing the island back by “right of discovery” paying $24 dollars in glass beads, like what was allegedly paid for Manhattan.

Kaepernick also attacked the United States ‘for stealing 1.5 billion acres of land from Indigenous people’.
He also retweeted a far-fetched claim that tried to link the effort to establish a national Thanksgiving to racism.
Meanwhile as he continues to blast America, he’s still not gotten any interest from any NFL teams to tryout for them.
