Thanksgiving?

Why do we celebrate Thanksgiving? Why did our controllers lie to us, causing us to embrace this day as a national celebration? What is the true story?

Things have really not changed much since 1621. The same tactics are utilized in an attempt to control the minds of others. The following is taken from The Hidden History Of Massachusetts, by Tingba Apidta.

What Really Happened in Plymouth in 1621?

According to a single-paragraph account in the writings of one Pilgrim,
a harvest feast did take place in Plymouth in 1621, probably in
mid-October, but the Indians who attended were not even invited. Though
it later became known as “Thanksgiving,” the Pilgrims never called it
that. And amidst the imagery of a picnic of interracial harmony is some
of the most terrifying bloodshed in New World history.

The Pilgrim crop had failed miserably that year, but the agricultural
expertise of the Indians had produced twenty acres of corn, without
which the Pilgrims would have surely perished. The Indians often
brought food to the Pilgrims, who came from England ridiculously
unprepared to survive and hence relied almost exclusively on handouts
from the overly generous Indians-thus making the Pilgrims the western
hemisphere’s first class of welfare recipients. The Pilgrims invited
the Indian sachem Massasoit to their feast, and it was Massasoit,
engaging in the tribal tradition of equal sharing, who then invited
ninety or more of his Indian brothers and sisters-to the annoyance of
the 50 or so ungrateful Europeans. No turkey, cranberry sauce or
pumpkin pie was served; they likely ate duck or geese and the venison
from the 5 deer brought by Massasoit. In fact, most, if not all, of the
food was most likely brought and prepared by the Indians, whose
10,000-year familiarity with the cuisine of the region had kept the
whites alive up to that point.

The Pilgrims wore no black hats or buckled shoes-these were the silly
inventions of artists hundreds of years since that time. These
lower-class Englishmen wore brightly colored clothing, with one of
their church leaders recording among his possessions “1 paire of greene
drawers.” Contrary to the fabricated lore of storytellers generations
since, no Pilgrims prayed at the meal, and the supposed good cheer and
fellowship must have dissipated quickly once the Pilgrims brandished
their weaponry in a primitive display of intimidation. What’s more, the
Pilgrims consumed a good deal of home brew. In fact, each Pilgrim
drank at least a half gallon of beer a day, which they preferred even
to water. This daily inebriation led their governor, William Bradford,
to comment on his people’s “notorious sin,” which included their
“drunkenness and uncleanliness” and rampant “sodomy”…

The Pilgrims of Plymouth, The Original Scalpers

Contrary to popular mythology the Pilgrims were no friends to the local
Indians. They were engaged in a ruthless war of extermination against
their hosts, even as they falsely posed as friends. Just days before
the alleged Thanksgiving love-fest, a company of Pilgrims led by Myles
Standish actively sought to chop off the head of a local chief. They
deliberately caused a rivalry between two friendly Indians, pitting one
against the other in an attempt to obtain “better intelligence and make
them both more diligent.” An 11-foot-high wall was erected around the
entire settlement for the purpose of keeping the Indians out.

Any Indian who came within the vicinity of the Pilgrim settlement was
subject to robbery, enslavement, or even murder. The Pilgrims further
advertised their evil intentions and white racial hostility, when they
mounted five cannons on a hill around their settlement, constructed a
platform for artillery, and then organized their soldiers into four
companies-all in preparation for the military destruction of their
friends the Indians.

Pilgrim Myles Standish eventually got his bloody prize. He went to the
Indians, pretended to be a trader, then beheaded an Indian man named
Wituwamat. He brought the head to Plymouth, where it was displayed on a
wooden spike for many years, according to Gary B. Nash, “as a symbol
of white power.” Standish had the Indian man’s young brother hanged
from the rafters for good measure. From that time on, the whites were
known to the Indians of Massachusetts by the name “Wotowquenange,”
which in their tongue meant cutthroats and stabbers.

Who Were the “Savages”?

The myth of the fierce, ruthless Indian savage lusting after the blood
of innocent Europeans must be vigorously dispelled at this point. In
actuality, the historical record shows that the very opposite was true.

Once the European settlements stabilized, the whites turned on their
hosts in a brutal way. The once amicable relationship was breeched
again and again by the whites, who lusted over the riches of Indian
land. A combination of the Pilgrims’ demonization of the Indians, the
concocted mythology of Eurocentric historians, and standard Hollywood
propaganda has served to paint the gentle Indian as a tomahawk-swinging
savage endlessly on the warpath, lusting for the blood of the
God-fearing whites.

But the Pilgrims’ own testimony obliterates that fallacy. The Indians
engaged each other in military contests from time to time, but the
causes of “war,” the methods, and the resulting damage differed
profoundly from the European variety:

o Indian “wars” were largely symbolic and were about honor, not about territory or extermination.

o “Wars” were fought as domestic correction for a specific act and were
ended when correction was achieved. Such action might better be
described as internal policing. The conquest or destruction of whole
territories was a European concept.

o Indian “wars” were often engaged in by family groups, not by whole tribal groups, and would involve only the family members.

o A lengthy negotiation was engaged in between the aggrieved parties
before escalation to physical confrontation would be sanctioned.
Surprise attacks were unknown to the Indians.

o It was regarded as evidence of bravery for a man to go into “battle”
carrying no weapon that would do any harm at a distance-not even bows
and arrows. The bravest act in war in some Indian cultures was to touch
their adversary and escape before he could do physical harm.

o The targeting of non-combatants like women, children, and the elderly
was never contemplated. Indians expressed shock and repugnance when
the Europeans told, and then showed, them that they considered women
and children fair game in their style of warfare.

o A major Indian “war” might end with less than a dozen casualties on
both sides. Often, when the arrows had been expended the “war” would be
halted. The European practice of wiping out whole nations in bloody
massacres was incomprehensible to the Indian.

According to one scholar, “The most notable feature of Indian warfare
was its relative innocuity.” European observers of Indian wars often
expressed surprise at how little harm they actually inflicted. “Their
wars are far less bloody and devouring than the cruel wars of Europe,”
commented settler Roger Williams in 1643. Even Puritan warmonger and
professional soldier Capt. John Mason scoffed at Indian warfare:
“[Their] feeble manner…did hardly deserve the name of fighting.”
Fellow warmonger John Underhill spoke of the Narragansetts, after
having spent a day “burning and spoiling” their country: “no Indians
would come near us, but run from us, as the deer from the dogs.” He
concluded that the Indians might fight seven years and not kill seven
men. Their fighting style, he wrote, “is more for pastime, than to
conquer and subdue enemies.”

All this describes a people for whom war is a deeply regrettable last
resort. An agrarian people, the American Indians had devised a
civilization that provided dozens of options all designed to avoid
conflict–the very opposite of Europeans, for whom all-out war, a
ferocious bloodlust, and systematic genocide are their apparent life
force. Thomas Jefferson–who himself advocated the physical
extermination of the American Indian–said of Europe, “They [Europeans]
are nations of eternal war. All their energies are expended in the
destruction of labor, property and lives of their people.”

Puritan Holocaust

By the mid 1630s, a new group of 700 even holier Europeans calling
themselves Puritans had arrived on 11 ships and settled in Boston-which
only served to accelerate the brutality against the Indians.

In one incident around 1637, a force of whites trapped some seven
hundred Pequot Indians, mostly women, children, and the elderly, near
the mouth of the Mystic River. Englishman John Mason attacked the
Indian camp with “fire, sword, blunderbuss, and tomahawk.” Only a
handful escaped and few prisoners were taken-to the apparent delight of
the Europeans:

To see them frying in the fire, and the streams of their blood
quenching the same, and the stench was horrible; but the victory seemed
a sweet sacrifice, and they gave praise thereof to God.

This event marked the first actual Thanksgiving. In just 10 years
12,000 whites had invaded New England, and as their numbers grew they
pressed for all-out extermination of the Indian. Euro-diseases had
reduced the population of the Massachusett nation from over 24,000 to
less than 750; meanwhile, the number of European settlers in
Massachusetts rose to more than 20,000 by 1646.

By 1675, the Massachusetts Englishmen were in a full-scale war with the
great Indian chief of the Wampanoags, Metacomet. Renamed “King Philip”
by the white man, Metacomet watched the steady erosion of the
lifestyle and culture of his people as European-imposed laws and values
engulfed them.

In 1671, the white man had ordered Metacomet to come to Plymouth to
enforce upon him a new treaty, which included the humiliating rule that
he could no longer sell his own land without prior approval from
whites. They also demanded that he turn in his community’s firearms.
Marked for extermination by the merciless power of a distant king and
his ruthless subjects, Metacomet retaliated in 1675 with raids on
several isolated frontier towns. Eventually, the Indians attacked 52 of
the 90 New England towns, destroying 13 of them. The Englishmen
ultimately regrouped, and after much bloodletting defeated the great
Indian nation, just half a century after their arrival on Massachusetts
soil. Historian Douglas Edward Leach describes the bitter end:

The ruthless executions, the cruel sentences…were all aimed at the
same goal-unchallengeable white supremacy in southern New England. That
the program succeeded is convincingly demonstrated by the almost
complete docility of the local native ever since.

When Captain Benjamin Church tracked down and murdered Metacomet in
1676, his body was quartered and parts were “left for the wolves.” The
great Indian chief’s hands were cut off and sent to Boston and his head
went to Plymouth, where it was set upon a pole on the real first “day
of public Thanksgiving for the beginning of revenge upon the enemy.”
Metacomet’s nine-year-old son was destined for execution because, the
whites reasoned, the offspring of the devil must pay for the sins of
their father. The child was instead shipped to the Caribbean to spend
his life in slavery.

As the Holocaust continued, several official Thanksgiving Days were
proclaimed. Governor Joseph Dudley declared in 1704 a “General
Thanksgiving”-not in celebration of the brotherhood of man-but for
[God’s] infinite Goodness to extend His Favors…In defeating and
disappointing… the Expeditions of the Enemy [Indians] against us, And
the good Success given us against them, by delivering so many of them
into our hands…

Just two years later one could reap a ££50 reward in Massachusetts for
the scalp of an Indian-demonstrating that the practice of scalping was a
European tradition. According to one scholar, “Hunting redskins
became…a popular sport in New England, especially since prisoners were
worth good money…”

So, there you have the story, which is not so much different than what’s transpiring now in the Middle East.
Let’s be honest. Thanksgiving is about
gluttonously feeding the Western monkey, to the detriment of all
others worldwide. Sure, I’m going to eat a lot of turkey and dressing. I
won’t lie and tell you I won’t. But let’s at least be aware of the
truth, and not buy into the lies any longer.
This post is dedicated to Chief Metacomet of the Wampanoags, and all Native Americans slaughtered by Europeans.

On The Wheel

 And desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s
table: moreover the dogs came and licked his sores (Luke 16:21).

The destinies of men are subject to immutable laws that must fulfill
themselves.
But man has it in his power to shape his fate, according as his
behavior exposes him to the influence of benevolent or of destructive
forces. When a man holds a high position and is nevertheless modest, he
shines with the light of wisdom; if he is in a lowly position and is
modest, he cannot be passed by. Thus the superior man can carry out his
work to the end without boasting of what he has achieved (The I Ching).

Revolutionary musings to follow. I feel my inner Marx seething.

A behaviorist understands that, to prompt a certain response from a
rat, say the ringing of a bell, a reward must be given, e.g. a piece of
cheese. Using this method, the rat is quickly and easily trained to ring
the bell whenever rewarded.

Employers surely must
understand this basic, undeniable fact: workers won’t perform as
requested without rewards for what they’ve already achieved. If not,
that person is a very poor employer, indeed, and in need of
understanding about human nature. We see this before our eyes on a near-daily basis. Our managers and supervisors treat us like automatons, expecting maximum efficiency from us, as if we were perpetual-motion machines. But, when it comes time for annual assessments, we are told the company cannot afford to increase our salaries or improve our benefits. The next thing you hear is that the top executives have received lucrative bonuses!

A
behaviorist experimenting on a rat does not believe in a god or any
supernatural agency. He/She only believes in the scientific fact that a
rat can be conditioned to perform a requested action.

A man
who is a manager of workers, and a confessed believer in a god, the one
and only god, according to this person, must surely understand that
rewarding others for what they’ve achieved is a good way to ensure that
future behavior will correspond to the manager’s wishes, and to please
their loving and compassionate god. But, sadly, even a rat gets more
respect than workers in our modern workplace. At least the rat gets
cheese. The lowly worker gets crumbs, which fall, seemingly, from the
master’s table.

The manager is not a modest man, for, if he were, he
would shine with the “light of wisdom.” Instead, we see a frail, paltry
excuse for a man. Such men are not worthy of respect. They should be
licking at our heels for crumbs.

Black Friday Transformed

Let’s face it, friends, the shopping melee, that occurs the day after Thanksgiving, is not benefiting us. In fact, it simply empowers corporations to have even more control over our lives than they do now. I know, I know, you’re going to tell me you save a lot of money because of the so-called “sweet deals.” But, think about it. Are retailers that stupid? Are they really trying to save you money, perhaps out of their immense compassion for the American shopper? Come on, people! Wake up!

Corporations will turn a profit at any cost. They have never stopped to think whether their marketing schemes do more harm than good. They have never cared one iota whether their actions would benefit or harm our society. Understand this: anything that stems from a blatant lie is not good for you or your fellow-citizens. If you want to learn more about the history of so-called “public relations” and marketing, watch this documentary.

If, after viewing it, if you still think retailers are thinking only of you, and saving you from spending your very hard-earned dollars, you may need to seek professional help.

So, what if, instead of camping out on the doorstep at Best Buy or the local mall on Thanksgiving night, why don’t we just stay home and sleep in our friggin’ beds?! Why don’t we stay in our pajamas all friggin’ day on Friday and not buy a single solitary thing?! Let’s boycott Black Friday! Let’s turn it into some other color, like Blue Friday because, for example, we stay home all day and listen to friggin’ blues music on our free Spotify account!

Folks, our nation needs you. You will be participating in an act of patriotism by boycotting Black Friday. The 1% cares nothing for you. Your are chattel to them. Don’t buy into the lies perpetrated by the mainstream media. Be an American hero.

First And Last

Jesus said, “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen (Matt. 20:16).

“The last”, in our society, are thought to be the homeless, the destitute, the starving. In our economically depressed times, there are multitudes who fit this description. Millions have lost their homes, their jobs, their very lives, to a band of despotic marauders, who go by the names of Representative So-and-So, or Senator Such-and-Such. Of course, these so-called representatives are mostly all wealthy, most born with the proverbial silver spoon dangling from their gluttonous mouths. When they get to Washington, they become even richer and more gluttonous! How can this be? The normal salary for rank-and-file members of the House and Senate is $174,000. That’s a lot of money, but it doesn’t usually result in millions upon millions in wealth! Of course, there is always the possibility of insider trading. This is one example of what Jesus meant by “the first.”

“The first” also alludes to the corruption in the banking and investment sector. Billions of dollars is never enough for these avaricious thugs. They want everything you own! They want it all, and, apparently, they want it now. They would like nothing better than to see us all bankrupt. Their ultimate goal is to rid the earth of inferiors like us. But, to the dismay of these mobsters, the sleeping giant has been awakened!

The first shall be last. The Occupy movement is the beginning of the transformation. In recent days, a coordinated effort among several American cities has shown that the power elites are scared. They’re confused. They don’t know what to do with occupiers. The only strategy they understand is violence, so they resort to tear-gassings and pepper sprayings, and even beatings, to try and dissuade the faithful. But this is not working. In their infantile intellects, they believe that if enough muscle is thrown at the occupiers, they will give up and go home (if they have one to go to). That’s all their pea-brains can understand! You cannot quench the fire of an idea with police brutality. The first shall be last.

The last will become first, not because of a violent revolution, but because of peaceful, non-violent persuasion of the minds of millions of Americans, who are tired of a corrupt government, sham elections, a greedy and evil banking system, and mendacious media. The secrets are out, largely because of the Internet. The lies have been, and are continuing to be, uncovered. The evil is being rooted out. The last shall be first!
