Don’t expect Rush Limbaugh to sit down soon with any Native Americans to celebrate Thanksgiving.
He’s miffed they “scammed us” when they sold us Manhattan because they didn’t own it to begin with.
To top it off, European settlers were hardly “idiots” saved by “compassionate” Indians, as President Obama painted them in his Thanksgiving proclamation, Limbaugh scoffs. The true tale of the holiday is “failed socialism”—apparently because “collectivist” settlers shared too much of their bounty among their communities and suffered hardships as a result, claimed the right-wing trumpet.
“We shared our bounty” with the Indians “not because we didn’t know how to make it. It was because we first failed as socialists. Only when we turned capitalists did we have plenty,” he said. Earlier he viciously quipped that Native Americans “continue to add to our nation’s heritage … at their casinos and on their reservations.”
