Newsweek: How to Have a ‘Woke’ Thanksgiving

Today is a day of gratefulness for all to contemplate that with which we’re blessed in life and to remember, no matter the circumstances, there’s always something for which to give thanks.

Also, according to our friends at Newsweek, it’s a perfect opportunity to ‘civically engage’ friends and family.

Yes, that’s right.

If you’re a member of the ‘woke’ class of Americans evolved with a heightened sense of cultural awareness, you should take advantage of the holiday to open the eyes of narrow-minded, knuckle-dragging, conservatives who need to be educated on things like ‘Native American struggles, hunger and poverty, global warming’ and other leftist causes du jour.

And while you’re at it, feel free to skip the turkey in favor of a plate of tofu or some organic lawn clippings.

In all seriousness, Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Conservative Alerts!

May the blessings of liberty continue for you and yours.

While most of us are hoping to get through Thanksgiving without having to fight about politics with loved ones at the dinner table, our friends on the left — as usual — are plotting to use the occasion to “civically” engage us.

Newsweek writer Carlos Ballesteros came up with some great ideas for the “woke” community to employ as they continue in their endeavors to enlighten their backward relatives. His suggestions for Thanksgiving table conversation topics include Native American struggles, hunger and poverty, global warming, football player head traumas, and the ravages of the most reviled president in history — President Trump.

“Thanksgiving offers a unique opportunity to civically engage with those closest to us,” Ballesteros writes. “It’s the dirty work all democracies depend on.” Yes, apparently leftists believe it’s their civic duty to lecture their Neanderthal relatives about controversial issues at holiday gatherings.

He continues unironically: “So, in an effort to promote thoughtful discussion, here’s Newsweek’s guide to having a conscious, or ‘woke’, Thanksgiving.”

Being woke at Thanksgiving apparently involves bringing up the struggles facing Native American communities at the dinner table.
