Bette Midler Trashes Thanksgiving: Pilgrims Were ‘Undocumented Aliens from Europe’

David Ng 25 Nov 2022

Disney’s Hocus Pocus 2 star Bette Midler spent her Thanksgiving trashing the national holiday, posting a meme that denigrated the pilgrims as “undocumented aliens from Europe.”

In a tweet on Thursday, Bette Midler posted a meme showing a pilgrim and an Indian sharing a turkey in what appears to be a depiction of the first Thanksgiving in 1621. The meme’s snarky caption reads: “Celebrating the day Americans fed undocumented aliens from Europe.”

Midler’s meme inaccurately depicts what actually transpired between the Plymouth colony pilgrims and the Wampanoag Indians at the first Thanksgiving feast. Historical accounts show that both the pilgrims and Indians contributed food to the meal, with the pilgrims hunting fowl and the Indians bringing deer. They also feasted on the vegetables that the pilgrims grew with the help of the Indians.

While wild turkey might have been featured at the first Thanksgiving, they would more likely have dined on geese, duck, and other game. Some historians believe that seafood was also served, given the colonist’s proximity to the ocean.

Bette Midler isn’t the only celebrity to trash Thanksgiving this year. As Breitbart News reported, fellow Hollywood star John Leguizamo took to Twitter on Sunday to proclaim, “Happy indigenous survivor’s day! F*ck thanksgiving!”

Breitbart News’ Rebecca Mansour has published her annual appreciation of Thanksgiving, in which she explains the history of the holiday and the political revisionism that has occurred in the centuries since.

I would assume only governments require documents. If there was no government bureaucracy in existence in North America in the early 1600s, then there was no entity to require any sort of immigration documents and the settlers cannot, therefore, be termed undocumented.

So we've gone from Hollywood and other idiots being politically correct to also trashing all American holidays and traditions as well as religious holidays.  The aren't just liberals they are all just bat crap crazies.

I will continue to celebrate, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Memorial Day, D-day, Veterans' Day, Martin Luther King Day, President's Day, Columbus Day, Christmas and Easter and they can kiss my royal grits.
Lord God, Jesus Christ, please stop the evil that keeps prevailing on this country.

No doubt. I am sick to death of political correctness and wokeness.  It has become absolutely downright disgusting. I will NOT change my value system and what I believe in.

Those undocumented immigrants from Asia, and their ancestors, are responsible for the extinction of Wooly Mammoths.  Their poop stinks too.

I think Bette Midler just misspoke.  What she meant to say was “Die, traditionalists, die!”, if we want to be accurate.

The first Thanksgiving was in 1619.

Since Bette has been so vocal lately it might behoove her to embrace the old saying..."sometimes it's best to keep one's mouth shut and let people assume you are an idiot rather than open it and remove all doubt." :shrug:

I have ancestors who arrived in America before 1619. As there was no one on the Maryland shore to document them, it would seem they were undocumented. Whatever are we to do?

Others arrived in the early 1700s, however, by which time the government - the British government that controlled America - was keeping track of who arrived on passenger ships*. So, yes, they are documented immigrants. Wouldn't it be something if lefties learned a little history?

*My ancestor is one of those listed at the top of the page. He was age 6.

Bette Midler is free to buy some land in the middle of nowhere, erect a tent, and attempt to prevent herself from starving or freezing to death.  Though she probably won't have to worry too much about marauders killing or enslaving her like many American Indians from that time had to constantly worry about.
That's the kind of life many American Indians led before Europeans arrived to establish the beginnings of modern civilization in America.
