yessir

i didnt know cromwell was a hero to the english? fuck them cunts anyways


But ye have a celebration celebrating how ye murdered thousands of indians and took their land.

The last time the english tried to 'celebrate' their ownership of northern ireland with their supergay orange march, they decided to celebrate it in the republic! in Dublin for some reason. We have nothing to do with England here, but yet they wanted to. So hundreds of english marched through Dublin with their orange banners, but fuck me they'll never do it again.

I never seen such a riot here since the war in the north. Them english fuckers were sent packing with more petrol bombs and weapns than Belfast in the early 90's, and hundreds were assaluted, as were the police. Great time to be irish.

Maybe the native indians should do that to all of ye.

its not soccer, its football, a game where a ball is moved around the field using your feet, American Football should really be called handball, theres only 2 instances in the game where the ball is allowed to be touched by feet, kick off & field goals, and its only 1 player on the field at any one time thats allowed to touch the ball with feet, besides which American Football is more English than you think, because its basically a mixture of football (soccer) & rugby.....

yes we have holidays here, but we dont celebrate the day when we came a stole countries, if we did we'd celebrate the day we stole Australia, India, China, Northern Ireland etc...

Eh, i think he was one of those lords that came over to ireland was took our land murdered our people, destroyed homes, villages, and used the rest of the irish as slaves.

To be honest im not a hundred percent sure. I didnt pay an awful amount of attention in history at school, some people here know more about irish history than me.

I dont understand what the orange marches thinking behind marching through Dublin was. We have nothing to do with England. Its bad enough they march through belfast every year and REFUSED to change their route just a little bit, because a catholic womans son was murdered by protsestants days before the march, and the catolics though it would be insensitive. But of course they dont give a fuck. I fuckin hate them organge marching pricks. If they ever march through Dublin again, ill be there in the riot.

I like English people though, just not a certain section of the governement that rules northern ireland

Thanksgiving is a celebration of people, friends and families coming together, sharing, and being thankful for what they have, during the time of harvest.

Yeah, that's horrible, right foreigners?

I can't believe people take a day to simply be grateful and enjoy time with loved ones. Shame on us.

thanksgiving is when the pilgrims came n ate a big feast alongside the indians, who introduced corn n other stuff...and now they live on little reservations drinking jack all day n playing the slot machines...n crying when somebody litters


what people do now is eat a bunch of food, drink beer n watch football...thats what its all about, the american dream


and soccer does require a lot of skill and running in comparison to football
but then again, football you gotta have a lot more physical strength and endurance

Huh? the dude asked why we celebrate cuz we stole the land or whatever. And i responded, kinda like in the way Cromwell is celebrated by the English and despised by the Irish.
The purpose really isn't anything, just like Christmas. Its commercial now anyways.

Please, we invented basketball and still play it at the highest level. Soccer is so boringly lame.

To answer the question for this thread, we do it cause our parents did it, good ol' tradition. When has huge tasty meals with an assload of deserts celebrated amongst close friends and family ever not been cool? We just set aside a day to make sure it happens. I think Lincoln was the president when it became an official national holiday but the reason for it starting doesn't really matter so much. What its become is dope.

more like, thank God they where here to help us out (they had taught the pilgrims crucial farming techniques) and has been carried out for over a 140 years now as a official holiday and yes no one is thinkin of the indians when we do sit down to eat a bit like no one is thinkin about jesus when they open presents on christmas

I think you're getting Cilva's lyrics confused with the reality of the situation. The murdering of native americans is never officially recognized as holiday like its something America is proud of. They saved the Pilgrim's ass over the winter, got together for the harvest and gave thanks.


The Christmas comparison is fitting in the sense that the original motivation for the holiday is forgotten about. Jesus isn't front and center in christmas conversations and neither is those natives who helped out the pilgrims when turkey day rolls around.

Durag

its all good homie, this is Visions :lmao: you won't catch me catchin feelins over the internet ahahahaha,


but to answer your question, the Pilgrims where a bunch of protestants that had come from England to America but I guess didn't know shit cause the natives had to show them the basics on how to get by (we're talkin 1600's as far as time frame) they would've starved to death if they weren't shown how to hunt or grow food by the native americans who inhabited the land they landed on. (atleast thats how the story goes)

It might all just be a romanticized version of what actually happened and its really just a harvest festival that had its orgins from long, long ago. The timing would be right as its always celebrated on the 4th thursday of november. Hardly anyone farms anymore but I'll be damned if we don't still dig the family, food and booze. :b ( I just had some bananna bread for a snack and my fridge is stocked to the brim with left-overs and desert---thanksgiving rocks ^O^ )

If it was the english then they probably did muder a load of people and take their home and their land, destroy villages and use people as slaves. Well thats what they done in Ireland anyways, fuckin scumbags.

Nah but for real, it sounds like a dope celebration, and if its celebrating the indians showing them how to farm, it is kinda for a good reason.

But like you said, it has pretty much lost meaning, just like Christmas, so now its more about family and friends getting together and having a good time, which in my opinion is as good a reason as any to have a celebration.

and yes, in the name of manifest destiny many, many, MANY natives were killed, raped, and pushed to the brink (and often times over the edge) of extinction.

I read a comment by a historian once that went something like "...that it happened was inevitable, how it happened was unexcusable." I agree with that sentiment. The natives got absolutely SHITTED ON for America's sake. That part of our history is even worse than slavery.

Its funny how at the time, that was deemed neseccary. Basically genocide, wasnt really seen as anything too terrible. The british empire at that time were fuckin ruthless, invaded countless countries, had colonies in countless countries(couldnt colonise republic of ireland though fuckers), and where really a world power for such a small country.

The murder of the natives and the whole slave trade are two dark parts of american history.
