HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2011: Lots to Be Thankful For (Incl That We’re Not Like This . . . Yet)

By Debbie Schlussel

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you, my dear friends and readers across America (and to my international friends and readers, I give my thanks to you, even if you do not celebrate this very American holiday which I love so much). We have much to be thankful about here in America as we approach the conclusion of 2011. Aside from our health and welfare, we can rest assured that there are only 5 more years of President Barack Obama at most. And a Thanksgiving Mubarak [“Blessed Thanksgiving,” in Arabic] to all of the current Islamo-pandering residents of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.


Today, I give thanks that we are still free, that we are not yet an Islamic nation, and that I won’t be around when America becomes one and we lose everything. I am thankful that I don’t live in a country that practices sharia and treats women like chattel, a country that conducts pogroms against Jews and Christians and seizes their property, in addition to their lives. If you think that’s not coming, then you see a future America in which we take a tough approach to securing our borders and rounding up those inside who don’t legally belong here. You also see a future America in which we don’t bend over–backward AND forward–to the demands of the terrorism supporters a/k/a Muslims who now have green cards and citizenship because we did nothing to stop that. And you see an America in which they don’t have a huge birthrate, fast outpacing the rest of America. I don’t see that . . . yet or ever, until it’s too late. And it’s already too late. I asked our Jedi Master of Photoshop, artist David Lunde to make the photo below, which is what I see as future Thanksgivings in America a century or more from now, although that doesn’t take into account that Muslims in many parts of America refuse to celebrate Thanksgiving. Go to Dearbornistan today, and it’s business as usual, not an American national holiday (something they never celebrate).

I am thankful Thanksgiving in America doesn’t look like this . . . yet:

On a lighter and happier note, to those who wished me a Happy Thanksgiving, I regret I cannot respond to each of you personally, but Right Back At Ya! Thank you for reading this site this past year, over the years before that, and, I hope, in the next year. Thank you for posting your mostly terrific comments, and thanks for your tips and your support and contributions. I am thankful for all of that and all of you. I wish you a joyous, delicious, fun Thanksgiving to you all! And I hope you will take the time beyond the Turkey and cranberry sauce to give thanks that our country is still free and that we are all alive and kicking. Those are my primary things to be thankful for, in addition to being a citizen of the greatest country on earth. Those of us who are healthy are thankful for that, and those who are not . . . well, I’m thankful we still have the best healthcare system on earth, until ObamaCare comes into full swing, if gutless Republicans don’t reverse it and we have a President like Newt Gingrich who doesn’t think it’s so bad.

I’ve said this so many times before, but it bears repeating because the things I give thanks for are pretty consistent. They haven’t changed. On this Thanksgiving, again, I am thankful for you who regularly read my words. I give thanks for and think of all of those who serve our country in the U.S. Armed Forces and those who gave their lives so we can enjoy our turkey in freedom and without wearing a niqab, hijab, or jilbab, or some other dumb, oppressive piece of clothing that rhymes with “Bob” or “Rob” but was created by the Mohammeds, Ahmeds, and Mahmouds of this world.

Those who work today and every other day in U.S. Armed forces uniform, so that we can enjoy our lives as we wish and live freely, should be thanked every single day for their service. While left-wing self-hating Americans want us to regress to their phony version of history–ie., that we are the oppressors of Indians, turkeys, and every other thing imaginable or unimaginable, don’t forget that the real oppression is going on elsewhere . . . all over the world today. A large part of it is under Islamic totalitarian rule, some of it under Communists and “former” Communists. I give thanks that we are not like them, that we don’t live under them. And I give even more thanks that WE. ARE. BETTER. THAN. THEM. Never forget that. . . and the fact that turkey is better than turducken, which begins with “turd” for a reason.

If you are reading this site, you know that I still have the freedom to write whatever I wish on its pages and that you have the freedom to read it and whatever else you like. I am thankful for all of our freedoms here in America, since (for now), we still have them.

Though we have a pan-Marxist, Islamo-pandering President and unelected federal law enforcement bureaucracy infected with the same PC attitudes toward enforcing the law, and though times are tough for Americans all over, we are still citizens of the best damn country on earth. Most of all, I am thankful to be an American. Thank G-d for that! I am thankful that there is an America.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! May G-d bless you all. And G-d Bless America.

Well said. I hope you have a blessed Thanksgiving. G-d Bless you!

I am thankful for my freedom, for Debbie & her point of view that so many find too blunt, I like blunt. May we always act as though freedom is up to us & pray to G-d that he will obstruct our enemies, bless our friends, & change the hearts & minds of all Americans to vote out Obama & the Corruptocrates.

A_Zion_State_0'mind on November 24, 2011 at 2:30 pm

First and foremost Happy Thanksgiving Debbie. Hoping you are with family and all is well. As for the picture it is hilarious. We are thankful you are on our side. Best wishes for the holiday season.

CaliforniaScreaming on November 24, 2011 at 2:37 pm

And a very blessed Thanksgiving to you Debbie, and to all fellow commentors (or is it spelled commenters? To lazy to look it up right now).

CornCoLeo on November 24, 2011 at 4:18 pm

I am very thankful for your words both on radio and in print. You have supplemented my education in so many ways!

G-d bless!

Happy Thanksgiving to DS and all the fine regulars of this site!

I am so thankful for my freedom…and individual freedoms we are given in America. Each year I understand how wonderful freedom is!

Thanksgiving IS a fabulous holiday and one that is the most celebrated across the USA. I shudder to think today in Dearbornistan is like any other day…Thanksgiving in Boston is the most serene and barren of holidays…and that’s a good thing. To see hustle and bustle would show disrespect, as DS has illustrated above. It would be jarring if I saw it.

(And just to share a quick (and pretentious) point about alternative Thanksgiving here…we have a local college station that has an annual tradition. Some old (by now I assume…as I used to listen annually in the 90’s) hippy fool plays Native American (Indian) music all day long (as a day of mourning) and eats crackers and sardines in the studio. You hear every version of “Ira Hayes” ever recorded. I know the novelty of it ended for me by 1999. )

Just keep doing what your doing. Happy Thanksgiving.

This what the “new” Middle East looks like:

The depth of virulent Jew-hatred in the Muslim World is such that it leaves one gasping. When you watch this clip, keep in mind this is every one’s problem. Hatred cannot be confined to one segment of humanity. So when a Hezbollah propagandist says “the spirit of racism” is rooted in the Jews, part of that is surely a mirror image of who the true racists really are. Above all, its a commentary on the moral health of an entire civilization.

When you have finished watching this, for all of our shortcomings, which we must strive to rectify, we must keep in mind that we indeed are better than them morally and in our humane ethics and sense of doing what is right by G-d and by ourselves and we must never forget it.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone and G-d Bless America and G-d bless Israel!

NormanF on November 24, 2011 at 4:27 pm

Of course, in a real muslim Thanksgiving scene, the women would be behind a wall eating separately

Disgusted on November 24, 2011 at 5:53 pm

A happy thanksgiving to all. I like David Lunde’s picture
however I believe it would be more realistic if the
mother’s arms were covered.

IAM: You are absolutely correct, but I asked David Lunde to do this for me at the last minute, right before Thanksgiving. So, next year, we will get that detail–and others, such as bitter, unsmiling faces–correct. Didn’t have time this year. DS

I_AM_ME on November 24, 2011 at 6:14 pm

My Thanksgiving was over a month ago, but Happy Thanksgiving to all of you and all of yours.

My only memory of Turkey Day in Murricah was way back in 2003 when my ship at the time was tied up at Norfolk (if you’ve never seen the naval base, go see it – it’s that gorgeous). The streets were virtually empty and the only decent place open was an IHOP in town. Long story short – it was a good stay.

Don’t OD on the tryptophan, guys!

Happy Thanksgiving Debbie.
Lots of gunfire heard in the countryside today.
Plenty of deer and rabbits will be had for lunch.
An Islamic invasion of North America will mean that the South is gonna rise again.
We do not take kindly to Islam or any other foreign menace.

Confederate South on November 24, 2011 at 7:38 pm

I’m proud of you Debbie. You’ve touched the lives of so many people most of whom you will never know. You’ve kept us informed of things we would never have found on our own. You’ve entertained us and made us laugh. Maybe even cry a time or two. But most importantly you’ve made us think a little harder than we otherwise would have.

I wish you health, happiness, and long life. Happy Thanksgiving Debbie.

I am fondly reminded of American Thanksgiving hymns we sang in school. Sadly, they are probably banned today.

I thank you Debbie, for your Thanksgiving well-wishes and I warmly return my regards to you. May your coming year be blessed and prosperous. And may G_d continue to imbue you with your wonderful feisty and righteous spirit! The truth shall set us free!

Kairn on November 24, 2011 at 9:41 pm

Thank you, Debbie and right back at you. Thank you for doing what you do and G-d bless you.

Also Happy Thanksgiving to all of Debbie’s regular readers here and G-d bless each and every one of you. G-d bless America and G-d bless Israel.

Wait a minute, is that a Butterball turkey? I saw an article that Butterball turkeys are processed in accordance to moslem halal standards, so if it’s a Butterball then it fits with the picture. Another brand, probably not. Also, is the garnish on the serving tray halal?

CornCoLeo on November 24, 2011 at 10:24 pm


    Even if its Halal, it’s only a dead bird. It won’t kill you or convert you. In fact, Halal and Kosher is more healthy than non-Halal since the bird has been drained of the toxic blood in it.

    AJ on November 24, 2011 at 11:17 pm

      Christians are admonished not to eat meat sacrificed to idols or pagan deities. Allah, being the name of the pre-islamic moon god would fall into that category.

      This is why my holiday meals now have ham as the centerpiece. No need to worry if the meat has been “blessed” by a mood-god worshiping cult priest.

      CornCoLeo on November 25, 2011 at 1:28 pm

      AJ, I do not think Halal and Kosher are the same.

      I believe the Jewish people are way more humane and their ritual is of more meaning. And I read that article that Corn alluded to and it in fact stated that the killing was ANYTHING but humane.

      I always feel better when I eat a kosher animal. I know that true deep meaning and humanity was behind the slaughter. There is no way I would ever feel the same about halal. I know it’s *supposed* to mean something but I am not falling for it.

      Skunky on November 26, 2011 at 6:19 pm

Happy Thanksgiving DS! And thank God for you having the balls to tell it is.

Patrick on November 24, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Debbie & everyone here

Wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving 🙂

And enjoy your Black Friday shopping 😉

Infidel on November 24, 2011 at 10:57 pm


Happy Thanksgiving to you. Please be assured I don’t want to enforce Sharia in the USA.

AJ on November 24, 2011 at 11:15 pm

Debbie and everybody else on this blogsite, Happy Thanksgiving/Turkey day. Today I spent most of my day with my family and relative members, watching football of course (some of us men watched the football game(s)), and that was a pretty good satire picture created by David Lunde by using his imagination if that family were muslims! I didn’t eat too much, beacuse I didn’t much of an appetite and I’m doing everything I can to keep the weight off of my body (I’ve lost about 20 pounds since the summer months, and I plan on keeping it that way).

And speaking of the “American Family,” the second spew of “all-American muslim” is out there. The muz football coach decides that because ramadamadingdong occurs during football season, players will practise from 10 PM to 5AM. An African American non-muz complains and is told that he has to “accomodate” the majority. Since when do slaves-of-the-arab-god concoction defer to majorities. They are already campaigning for muz family law as a prelude to total sharia tyranny.

Also, the man who converted to marry a muz, breaks the dingdong fast and his wife says “its between you and god.” BS. Other than in special circumstances, breaking the fast is “disbelief” (kafir) and negates all prayer. Muz don’t tolerate those breaks. Muz co-workers have asked me for food, while begging me to conceal their kafirage. That rite is hardly a matter of conscience. How would you like to be on a plane with a muz pilot during dingdong?

Also, a muz sperm receptacle goes back on the headscarf in hopes of becoming fertile. She goes to a Shi cleric – the one who screamed at Hannity – who tells her that in vitro fertilization from another man would mean that that man would have possession of the infant. How degenerate. One muz hadith grants possession of a mother’s breast milk, after the talaq divorce.

Also, there are the standard kafir declarations against intolerance. One at a tailgage party; the other by a veteran kafir cop, after an anti muslim rally.

When do we hear their ideas on Jews and “honor” murders? When do we see them hassle arab Christians who joined the US military? Even the Freep had to report that.

Accomodation? They get nothing from me but scrutiny of their savagery.

I hope your Thanksgiving was all that you prayed for. Thank you once again for your courage in telling the truth.

I am more optimistic than you are. The Islamic tide is receding even in the Islamic countries. A vast majority of Moslems are no longer Moslems they just get by with out adhering to Islam. In Saudi Arabia, In Bangladesh, even In Pakistan and Iran many Moslems are silently leavibg Islam without much fanfare.

America is awakening to the facts about Islam. Only treacherous deceivers pretend to sympathise with Islam when they are the real promotors of it. America and the West were asleep but now they are awakening up. The Dutch, the Germans and the French are starting to assert their rejection to Islam. Even the UK is awakening up to this. Australia has told them; If you want Shariah laws move out to a country that practices it. We won’t. The USA has been sold to the Saudis by the Al-Bush family as you well know and then left the country in a conundrum. The pinnacle of knowledge and progress wants the Quataris to run our entry points. How wonderful?????

The Copts in this land would rether die than see it in the hands of trash. I assure you of that. I am one of the Copts Mam

The latest Lara Logan in Cairo:

“On Thursday, French television reporter Caroline Sinz from the state network France 3 was subjected to a violent sexual assualt by a gang of young men and boys and her cameraman was beaten as they tried to cover the revolt.”

Yup, that’s Islam and Reporters Without Borders are warning women journalists not to cover what’s happening in Egypt’s Tahrir Square. Rape? Hey, put some ice on it! We’re told the Arab animals have changed – at least that’s what we were told back in February. How did the overthrow of Mubarak work out for ya?

Now Islam is the flavor of November… and beyond!

I spent TG with Chaldean friends for a change after the traditional appetizers of hummus, dolmas, etc.they did serve a huge turkey that was cleaned to the bone in short time. I bought Babka and seven layer from the Star bakery. One man with a huge Turkish style moustache, who spoke little English was fresh from Iraq, later I was told he is a wealthy owner of farmland over there, he invited me, oh sure! He said through translation.{ Many outside of Detroit do not know what a Chaldean is, for you they are Christians, and for many of my fellow Jews who are ignorant, they do not live in Dearborn,not one!) My Mogen David was evident, he told me he enjoyed Israel, many Chaldeans have been there and really enjoyed it. In fact there were two Israelis at the dinner whom I know. He said it was safe in the south of Iraq,Why, I said since when, it seens that since they ran out of Christians to kill they are killing each other at a faster rate. He loudly laughed, enjoying my frankness. He also enjoyed my Obama in heaven looking for Mohammed joke (another time). In any case the next morning NPR reported another bombing in Iraq but this time in the south, killing eighteen Iraqi soldiers. The truth is that all who have lived in Iraq, or Jordan, or Egypt once they have been to Tel Aviv rave about it. To them Israel is now the Paris of the Mideast when it comes to enjoying an evening out with good food and good friends without the worry of being humiliated, arrested or killed.

Why are you so racist and extreme in your views? Most Muslim Americans are law-abiding citizens. As many people have said, the US is a nation of immigrants, and all of them bring interesting and unique cultures and traditions. Just because some choose not to practice Thanksgiving doesn’t make them “unAmerican,” because, for many, American ideals include diversity and democracy, not hatred and racism. Furthermore, I think you would benefit greatly from reading some recent articles about “Arab Spring,” because many of the reformers want more peaceful, nonsecular societies, while a few crazed tyrants are oppressing them. A lot of your blogs seem to contain vast numbers of unverified facts, and hateful and hurtful comments toward a variety of groups. This Thanksgiving, I’m thankful that you don’t partake in the lawmaking process.

yikes! on November 27, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    First off stupid, what race is islam? Islam is NOT a race dumbass and DS is NOT an extremist, she is only giving out all of the investigative facts of islam and what stands for and represents. As for most muslims in this country being law abiding, how about most of the crimes they’ve committed, whether it’s attempted terrorist plots, fraud, scams, robbery, etc. That doesn’t sound law-abiding to me buster, so quit being a dhimmi (or probably a muslim yourself) and an “Islamophile”, and there are some muslims in this country who are law-abiding, and guess what, a good number of muslims in this country support islamic terrorist groups (ie, hamas, hezbollah, fatah, taliban, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.) and that doesn’t sound moderate to me schmuck!

    Also, the so-called “Arab-Spring” is a made up propaganda term, most of the rebels in Arabic countries who want to overthrow their current government are supporting the “Muslim Brotherhood” who wants to impose sharia law/islamic law on all of the arabic folks in the middle east. And Debbie has written numerous articles on this blog of her’s about the Arab-Spring, none of us including her isn’t buying the BS rubbish of “yadda yadda the rebels are reformers yadda yadda”. Furthermore, this country is a “Constitutional Republic” NOT a democracy, there is a difference between a Republic and a Democracy, try studying more history instead of spewing out nonsense and stupidity!

I wish you and all the American people a nice Thankgiving day. The only thing that I thank God for this year is that I am still living with my family among those brutal creatures called Muslims. Every five or six years they kill one or two of my closest friends here at Elkousheh ( a small village in Sohag in Egypt) The last one was Boshra Aziz who was a teacher. He was a peaceful man. They killed him after a week of severe torture trying to make him say that he became a muslim. when he refused they killed him in the end after they had cut off his ears and gave him some knife cuts on the places of his body where he had the Cross tatto. Do you know what do they call the man who killed him ( Khalifa Refaaie) who previously killed eight copts in 2000 including children with cold blood. They simply call him “a man of virtue” because he exactly did what Muhammed told them ” to fight infidales till they confess they are Muslims or be killed”
God Bless you and every body who knows what islam is
