Here we go again. As we noted here, every year liberals seek to ruin Thanksgiving with some of the most insane, ridiculous claims regarding the holiday, often with claims of racism.
Here’s just some of the nonsense found on Twitter, the social media site where intelligence, logic and reason all go to die:
Dear White People:
Don’t just talk about it on Twitter.
Be about it in real life.

Mama told me “only you would do hair on Thanksgiving” 😂 this racist ass holiday won’t mess up my coins. 🙅🏻♀️

Um, okay… Whatever…
Here’s a cure for that — Stay home and stay far away from any human beings.
Some noted the hypocrisy of the left:
Thanksgiving is pretty racist, but the left celebrates nonetheless.

Indeed. They claim it’s racist, but they engage in it anyway.
thanksgiving sucks and is racist i propose to replace it with thanksgaming which is not racist yet

Even Planned Parenthood got in on the act, Breitbart said:
“Your dinner companions may say hurtful, offensive things about race, gender identity, sexual harassment and assault, birth control coverage, abortion, or any number of topics — which can feel stressful, isolating, or enraging,” the abortion provider adds, extending four tips on how to “feel safe” if you are planning to be around other people for the holiday.
First, Planned Parenthood says you can engage in “self care” by making decisions that allow you to “feel safe,” including the options of “not going home at all, going home with a friend or partner by your side, or only visiting for dinner.”
Second, the group recommends developing allies among “family members who love and respect you.”
“The more people in your family who can call people out … on their problematic behavior, the less acceptable it will be,” Planned Parenthood asserts.
And the low-information stupidity continues:
person: thanksgiving is a racist holiday and celebrates the slaughter of indians
same person: obama celebrated it like a decent human and evil trump took the day off

One person warned:
Would play the “take a shot whenever something homophobic/racist/sexist over thanksgiving” but also done want to get alcohol poisoning within 5 minutes ¯_(ツ)_/¯

For white people, however, that mouthy relative can come with a whole other set of embarrassing issues that make everyone cringe and wish they could find a way to leave the dinner early without being noticed. Those issues may include the fact that said relative voted for Donald Trump, or the relative may be a not-so-secret racist—or, worse yet, a toxic combination of being both a Trump supporter and a racist.
For those white people, Showing Up for Racial Justice has created a Thanksgiving text hotline that can provide help for you when you find yourself trapped in a racist discussion about how horrible black people are and how their men plan to come take all the white women.
The post adds:
If you find yourself in one of these sticky situations, simply text “SOS” to 82623 and SURJ will send you “some key talking points that tend to come up in these tough conversations.”
SURJ is a “national network of groups and individuals organizing white people for racial justice.” Their stated role is to undermine white support for white supremacy and to help build a racially just society.
Let’s put it this way — If you actually need to send a text to know what to say at Thanksgiving dinner, you have a much bigger problem than just dealing with a “racist” friend or relative…
