[Cher] went on to say [Thanksgiving] celebrates stealing land from Native Americans who had no concept of property or land ownership and purposely giving them smallpox.
I am going to address this fallacy right now.
There has been a scurrilous lie from the left about this for YEARS now, and I am sick to death of it.
Usually the lie is “traders gave Indians blankets laced’ with smallpox”
Guess what? Smallpox cannot live more than a few minutes away from the host. This means the blankets (if even remotely true) were laced with Dead smallpox. Guess what the vaccine against smallpox is?
Dead Small Pox Cells. So -evil whitey’ was lacing’ blankets with the CURE for the disease.
Sometimes it is a wonder these people can even maintain enough brain activity to even Breathe.
