RUSH: It’s especially relevant now since the original Thanksgiving is so misunderstood and so much of education is mistaught and actually young people lied to about much of the founding of our country. And so our tradition is to set it straight each and every day here.
RUSH: The problem is that the New York Times readership is a bunch of sponges and they're gonna soak this up, and they're gonna be running around thinking that they're now enlightened and they've learned something. And then there was another piece that ran this week claiming — this is not a new thought. This one does not surprise me they would run. But we're gonna dissect both of these.
RUSH: There's a tweet here from Chuck Schumer: "Bring this chart to Thanksgiving dinner. It’ll come in handy when that family member who always talks politics tells you the Republican tax bill helps the middle class." And then the GQ story and headline: "It's Your Civic Duty to Ruin Thanksgiving by Bringing Up Trump — This Turkey Day, Consider Making Life HELL for a Few of Your Relatives."
RUSH: Until this happened, you never heard the name John Lasseter? Well, he is to animation and the modern era of animation what George Lucas is to the sci-fi genre that is Star Wars and so forth.
RUSH: Fox News. The headline: "Girl Scouts Tells Parents Not to Force Daughters to Hug Relatives Over the Holidays." Now, you're probably saying, "Wait, wait, wait, what? That headline doesn't make any sense." I know. But I read it verbatim. The Girl Scouts of the USA — maybe they're just miffed that the Boy Scouts has decided to admit girls.
RUSH: The Nation, the far, far, fringe left wacko news publication suggests — do you know the Washington Redskins are hosting one of the Thanksgiving football games in the NFL? The Nation believes that the Redskins hosting a Thanksgiving Day game is the owners of the NFL showing their true racist, anti-Indian feelings. These people are incapable of being happy. They have to find some sort of ism in everything, even if it's harmless and good.
RUSH: Well, you know, it's an interesting question: What is gonna happen to these people? You know behind the scenes reclamation projects are underway. Like CBS is gonna try to find a way to get Charlie Rose back, and Bloomberg is gonna try to find a way to get him back. The guys on the other side of the glass are shaking their head, "No way, they went too far."
CALLER: I want to just say how awesome I thought your book was. I read my first book of yours in the Rush Revere series, the Brave Pilgrims. My grandma, who's been listening to you for about 15 years, just told me about it, and I thought it was great.
RUSH: How many of you have heard that our founders were atheists or were agnostics? So that's the first Thanksgiving, the official proclamation for it. It has traceable roots right back to the Pilgrims.
RUSH: "In due course, the intruders from Amsterdam who thought they had pulled a sharp one on the locals were forced into negotiating a second, more costly deal with the" people who actually did own "Manna-hatin"! So it was the Dutch who got screwed by the Indians, not the other way around. And I guarantee you, you haven't been taught that.
RUSH: No longer is this just gonna be a long list of stories that I might mention on the program. Now, you will get specifically the stories that I talk about on the program and a select list of a few others that I intended to get to but ran out of time. It's going to be more of a real-time base feature rather than just a generic list of places that I go to prep the show.
