(JTA) Since the founding of the United States of America, Jews have fought against any attempts by the overwhelmingly Christian majority to recognize any holiday as Christian — and their efforts to remove Christ from Thanksgiving was one their earliest victories:

Thanksgiving seems to have all the right ingredients for a holiday that most American Jews can embrace: It doesn’t fall on Shabbat, its roots and message are nonsectarian, and its only real ritual is a multi-course meal.
That’s why prominent Orthodox rabbis of the mid-20th century, including Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik and Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, gave Thanksgiving their hechsher (seal of approval). Shari Rabin, associate professor of Jewish studies and religion at Oberlin, told me that American Jews are comfortable with Thanksgiving for the most part because “it’s not as directly connected to Paganism or Christianity as Halloween or Christmas.”
And yet like so many aspects of the American-Jewish experience, Jews didn’t accept Thanksgiving — and Thanksgiving didn’t accept the Jews — without some struggle. As a 19th-century skirmish between Jewish leaders in Pennsylvania and their state’s governor demonstrated, Jews made sure that Thanksgiving was a day they could celebrate on equal standing with Christians.
Well before President Abraham Lincoln declared Thanksgiving a federal holiday in 1863, there were national and local “proclamations” that officially established a day of gratitude each year. In the first year of his presidency, on Oct. 3, 1789, George Washington issued a Thanksgiving proclamation by the new government, designating “Thursday the 26th day of November next” as Thanksgiving. The proclamation calls for “a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God” — religious, but not specifically Christian. Gershom Mendes Seixas, the cantor of New York’s Congregation Shearith Israel, welcomed the president’s declaration in what is regarded as the first Jewish sermon about Thanksgiving.
Washington goes on to urge gratitude “for the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed” — a message consistent with his letter, one year later, to Seixas’s brother Moses, of Touro Synagogue in Newport, Rhode Island, promising “liberty of conscience” to all people, regardless of religious belief.
Other Thanksgiving proclamations did not communicate Washington’s nonsectarian message. Many were, in fact, filled with Christian language. According to Laura Yares, assistant professor of Religious Studies at Michigan State University, when the United States was in its nascent stages, “there was no blueprint for creating a non-sectarian public holiday.” Yares told me that “in the long evolution of customs and language for celebrating Thanksgiving, we shouldn’t be surprised to find that there have been public figures who have used the cultural resources of their own traditions to describe Thanksgiving, including Christian theology.”
And it was that kind of theology that set off a number of Jewish Philadelphians in what can only be described as a 19th-century version of a Twitter war. In 1848, Gov. William Johnston of Pennsylvania issued a Thanksgiving proclamation calling for the day to “be set apart, by all denominations of Christians within this Commonwealth.” That did not sit well with some Jews, and they made their displeasure known in the pages of The Occident and American Jewish Advocate, a Jewish newspaper published in Philadelphia.
The November issue of the paper quoted A.T. Jones, a Jewish Philadelphian, who complained to the governor that “Israelites never forget to pray for their rulers — yet your excellency seems to have no recollection of their existence… treat[ing] them as though they were not worthy of it.” Jones lamented that Jews “fought and bled” with their fellow American citizens and expressed great disappointment in a proclamation that clearly omitted Jews in the celebration of Thanksgiving.
The North American and United States Gazette, a secular Philadelphian newspaper, noted that a similar dustup had occurred a few years earlier over a proclamation by then Gov. Francis Rawn Shunk. In a forgiving tone, the Gazette suggested that such proclamations “are seldom written by governors themselves.” The most powerful exchange, published in the same paper, was between a prominent Jewish lawyer in Philadelphia, Joseph Moss, and the governor himself, a few weeks prior to the holiday. Learning that Gov. Johnston was in town, Moss immediately wrote, complaining that in a commonwealth with over 15,000 Jews, the proclamation “seems entirely to have lost sight of these undeviating followers of the Holy Bible.”
The governor responded the following day with an epic apology: “I cannot permit you to suppose that the spirit of intolerance has a place within my bosom,” he wrote. “The terms of [the proclamation’s] composition or its phraseology were not designated by me. It was issued by the Secretary of State during my absence, and I presumed [it] would be in the usual form.” The governor concluded his response by officially inviting the Jewish community to observe Thanksgiving and signed it, “Truly your friend, Wm. F. Johnston.”
This crisis-averting resolution — and the new “friendship” it supposedly created — sounds almost quaint after 170 years. But these Thanksgiving proclamation mishaps, which occurred throughout the 1800s in various states — including Ohio, Pennsylvania and South Carolina — turned into opportunities for Jews to assert and insert themselves into the national narrative. Yares notes: “Since Moses Seixas’ letter to George Washington in 1790, Jews have openly and publicly taken on the task of holding political leaders to the task of preserving America’s commitment to the separation of church and state.”
Thanksgiving this year arrives on the Thursday before Hanukkah, and we’ll be thinking about our dual loyalties to turkey and latkes. Hanukkah celebrates the right of Jews to worship without being coerced into the ways of the majority. Thanksgiving celebrates the ways people of all faiths — and none — can express thanks on equal terms.
To paraphrase the late 19-century Jewish philosopher Ahad Ha’am’s maxim about Shabbat: More than the Jewish people have kept Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving has kept the Jews — and enabled them to consistently affirm their rightful place in these United States.
The Jews of Philadelphia conveniently ignored the original 1776 Pennsylvania State Constitution, which clearly stated that any elected officials — and that would include the governor — must declare the following beliefs:

And each member, before he takes his seat, shall make and subscribe the following declaration, viz : I do believe in one God, the creator and governor of the universe, the rewarder of the good and the punisher of the wicked. And I do acknowledge the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be given by Divine inspiration.
Clearly the citizens of Pennsylvania expected all of their elected officials to be Christians — and to uphold the “divinely inspired” New Testament — kryptonite to any Jew — which is why the Jews made sure this Christian clause was removed when Pennsylvania revised their constitution.

The expression “separation of church and state” exists nowhere in the text of the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights — it was derived from an expression Thomas Jefferson used in a private letter that he wrote in 1802 to the Danbury Baptist Association, reassuring them that the Constitution protected their right to freely practice their particular brand of Christianity:

Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should ‘make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,’ thus building a wall of separation between Church and State.
The issue of “freedom of religion” for Jefferson and the Founding Fathers wasn’t about the freedom to be a Jew, Muslim, or Hindu in America, but rather that no particular sect of Christianity would dominate and compel other Christians against their beliefs.

And contrary to what the Jewish writer above contends, the roots of the original Thanksgiving among the Pilgrims was, in fact, undeniably a Christian celebration of thanks — it most certainly was not a “sectarian” feast with pagan Indians on equal terms.

The Pilgrims risked everything to come to the American colonies not to be free from Christianity, but rather to pursue their chosen form of Christianity free from the oppressive intolerance and abuses of the likes of the Church of England or the Vatican.

The Pilgrims came to America to establish their freedom in Christ, as Galatians 5:1 tells us,

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.
The concept of “liberty” for Christians in colonial America was inextricably tied to Christ — there was no true liberty without Christ — judeo-Masonic “liberty” without Christ ultimately leads to enslavement to our passions:

And that because of false brethren unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage” (Galatians 2:4)
Freedom in Christ — not freedom from Christ.

The idea that the Founding Fathers fought and died to ensure that Jews, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists — all enemies of Christ — could freely worship their strange gods on equal terms with Christ in America is not only preposterous but comical.

But that is exactly what Jews want us all to foolishly accept — that when they wrote the U.S. Constitution, the Founding Fathers envisioned a nation founded on Marxist-inspired Jewish “pluralism” — a Judeo-Masonic weapon to overthrow all Christian nations.

And what have Jews done with their “freedom” from Christianity?

On Thanksgiving Jews can openly celebrate kissing lesbians, race mixing, and sodomy in their annual, nationally-televised Macy’s Thanksgiving parade.

This is the “legacy” that Jews have wrought when we allowed them to remove Christ from Thanksgiving.

Yes, yes, same old kikery: make everything about the shekels. Turn Thanksgiving into another conspicuous consumption day.

Jews jewing even as long ago as 1789. It's too bad ol' George didn't listen to Benjamin Franklin and take his advise to keep the hebes out.

They did this with other holy times as well, such as Christmas (turned it into Santa Claus day), and Easter Sunday (bunny and hard-boiled egg day).

Indeed, though they did take advantage of Whites ethnic memory with Santa Claus from the more ancient times in Europe. Damn kikes.

Notice how Jews are informing and dictating to us what exactly our commitment actually is as Americans. As if we cannot figure out what our commitment is on our own?

No. Jews have to tell us what our commitment really is. That's really what it's all about right there indeed: explicit separation of church/state relations. That way Jews can isolate the Church and begin fragmenting it and diluting it passed all recognition of its former self. Meanwhile, simultaneously Judaism/World Jewry can hasten to begin its own infiltration and co-opting of our State as well!

There have been many times and instances throughout the history of America where leaders and the general public have desired to make Christianity explicit in one way or the other whether in culture or in government- and Jews by and large have always interjected in such a way so as to obfuscate the issue. Jews instead have used this opportunity to promote things like cultural plurality and the multi-Cult and diversity is our greatest strength!

That's where all this stuff originally comes from. The people have time and time again shown themselves ready to externalize Christianity and make it explicit. And the Jews have always intervened at that precise moment with our leadership. And then not only have Jews enticed our own leaders to reject this explicit appeal to and celebration of our common Christian heritage, but Jews like I say have even used their chutzpuh to take it an extra step further: thus artificially and inorganically inserting/asserting some sort of Cultural Plurality in its stead.

Jews invented this concept of cultural plurality. See Horace Kallen and others.

Jews perpetuated the concept of Separation of Church/State in America for the same reason. They couldn't have us being acutely aware of our own heritage at any and all costs. For if we were aware, then we would eventually realize that Jews are antagonistic toward this tradition and heritage! Then, we'd finally do what was necessary!

I saw a CNN article about how Thanksgiving should be known as a National Day of Mourning to keep the name more honest. It was written be an obvious gaynigger.
