Yeah yeah, we know, Cenk Uygur’s piece about how it’s ok to be a self-centered, unthankful crybaby on Thanksgiving was pretty bad, but when compared to this hot mess from CNN …
CNN wins the dumbest take on Thanksgiving. Sorry, Cenk.

Thanksgiving is a holiday that should, above any other holiday, remind us vividly of our history — including the part that is personal: how we — each of us — wound up as Americans.
So many of us were refugees from oppression — I count my family in this group. The native population welcomed us, and it’s now in our DNA as a nation-state that we are that one place in the world where all people fleeing injustice and poverty and violence will, to the degree we can manage this, be given a warm welcome.
We’ve all benefited immeasurably from immigrants who have struggled to come to our shores. These are hard-working and well-intentioned people willing to give everything they have to honor a nation founded on the principle that “all men are created equal.”
CNN naturally has today’s stupidest take.
The premise of this article is garbage because:
– Migrant caravan is not fleeing systemic religious persecution
– America was not a nation with sovereign borders in the 1600’s
– Pilgrims not funded by leftist groups w/ political agenda https://t.co/4PimkolZgp

Maybe the writers at CNN had a bet about who could write the dumbest piece about Thanksgiving?

Actual EL OH EL.
Ah. So the caravan will bring disease, rape, and will enslave our people. Good to know, thank you CNN.

@CNN is incapable of presenting any news story without bias even if they tried.
And they never try to be anything other than the liberal democrat propagandists that they are.

Did they come to a place that had defined borders, a nation of laws, and a set standard for coming to the New World? No jackasses.They left a tyrannical King for the freedom of religion not so they could take EBT cards, free healthcare and free schools and Section 8 housing.
