Sen. Tom Cotton: It's the 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims' arrival. Why haven't we heard more about it?

This year we ought to be especially thankful for the Pilgrims

By Sen. Tom Cotton | Fox News

We are marking a great American anniversary this month. In November 1620 a battered old ship called the Mayflower arrived in the waters off Cape Cod in what is now the state of Massachusetts. The passengers aboard the Mayflower were our nation’s first founders — or, as Daniel Webster called them, “Our Pilgrim Fathers.”

Webster delivered a speech to honor these Pilgrims on the 200th anniversary of the Mayflower’s arrival. Calvin Coolidge, then-governor of Massachusetts and president-elect, delivered an address on the 300th anniversary.

Regrettably, we haven’t heard much about this year’s anniversary because the Pilgrims have fallen out of fashion in elite circles. Just this week, The New York Times food section published an article that called the Pilgrim story, including the First Thanksgiving, a “myth” and a “caricature.” In place of these so-called “myths,” the liberal newspaper seeks to substitute its own, claiming the history of our nation is an unbroken tale of conflict, oppression and misery.

They were the wrong color and the wrong religion.

SJW whitewash.  This cultural genicide  starrted about 10 or so years ago, with the downing of some statues and flags.

And anyone thinking it is going to stop, is serioulsy underestmating the veracity of this movement and their despicable people.

I display the Confederate Battle Flag in honor of my great great great grandfathers who spilled blood at Wilson's Creek and Shiloh.  5 others served in the WBTS with honor too.

The Pilgrims were just one of several religious dissident groups, com[rising the earlieists settlers.
