Today, Let's Give Thanks For The Good Subhumans

Happy Thanksgiving! Today, let's join with Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends and celebrate the true meaning of this holiday:

Since we are global, we have people writing us from other countries saying, "We don't even know what Thanksgiving is"! They don't know about the Pilgrims. They don't know about the Hekawi [?] Indians we ended up signing a peace agreement with...Remember F-Troop? Those are my favorite Indians. They were good Indians.

It's hard to tell, but I think Kilmeade said the Pilgrims signed a peace agreement with the "Hekawi." The Hekawi were the imaginary (and imaginarily friendly) Indians on the sixties TV show he mentions, F-Troop, which was set in Kansas in 1865. So Fox's international audience may not want to rely on Kilmeade to learn US history. (Also, as far as I know, there is no "peace agreement" connected to Thanksgiving.)

But—were the Hekawi the only good subhumans? No! Here, let Richard Nixon tell you, from his Oval Office tapes:

NIXON: Many Jews in the Communist conspiracy...Chambers and Hiss were the only non-Jews...Many thought that Hiss was. He could have been a half...Every other one was a Jew...

Jewish families are close, but there's this strange malignancy that seems to creep among them...

The Jews—the Jews are, are born spies. You notice how many of them are just in up to their necks?

The best Jews are actually the Israeli Jews.

I'd also bet that, as the Buffalo Soldiers were fighting in the Apache Wars, the Spanish-American War, and the Johnson County War, there were US presidents regularly referring to them as "the good negroes." But sadly, we do not have recordings from this period.

I'm afraid that what this Fox chimpanzee was doing was denigrating ALL native Americans with the Hekawi slur: ("We're the Hekawi" was the F-Troop joke, meaning, "where the heck are we?" which was a way of stripping the Indian of his competence and making him just another butt of the constant joking that was F-Troop.) He did not take seriously his own explanation of American history, since he probably has such a weak grasp on it himself. It is just more of the same old rascist tribalism promoted on Fox every day.

I think that one of the Nazi leaders (Goering, perhaps) made a speech is which he complained about people who would say yes, most Jews are scum, but there's this one bloke I know who's a really good, decent Jew.

How did Kissinger put up with Nixon's anti-semitism? Perhaps he didn't consider himself one of "those Jews." And lest anyone misunderstand, I don't give a f--k about whether Kissinger was offended by Nixon for anything at all.

Speaking of Nixon, one of my all-time favorites of his statements is "I don't give a f--k about the lira." Don't remember the context, probably something about the economy, with a little anti-Italian crack thrown in.

you mean Zionism is not an enemy of any peace loving person that holds the notion of 'justice' in esteem?

What is in the water here in the US?
