Thanksgiving Is Canceled

Authored by Steve Watson via Summit News,

The latest joy killing decree to be issued from the environmental overlords is that Thanksgiving is canceled because your family meal is killing the planet.

How is it that some sweet potatoes and a pumpkin pie are destroying the Earth? Well, the bastion of all that is pure and good, the aptly named HuffPost has the answer.

“Meat and meat byproducts (cheese, butter and heavy cream, for example) have a larger environmental footprint than plant-based ingredients,” complains Alexandra Emanuelli.

“According to research done by Carnegie Mellon University, the carbon footprint of a 16-pound turkey creates a total of 34.2 pounds of CO2 — the same amount produced by turkey gravy, cranberry sauce, roasted Brussels sprouts, mashed potatoes, rolled biscuits and apple pie combined.” Emanuelli further huffs.

“[P]lant-based foods consistently have been shown to have lower carbon footprints — so those walnuts, chestnuts, mushrooms, etc. are far more efficient to produce in total resources than conventional animal products, especially red meat,” the report continues.

Great… walnut and mushroom soufflé it is then. But no…wait…you can’t actually have a family Thanksgiving at all, unless you all live in a commune and never leave, because traveling is the real evil.

“Researchers at Carnegie Mellon determined that four people flying a 600-mile trip produces 10 times the emissions of the Thanksgiving meal,” the report further whines.

Driving is less detrimental, but American cars emit close to a pound of CO2 per mile driven. Orchi Banerjee, a recent graduate of the department of Social and Decision Sciences at Carnegie Mellon, said, ‘It may help the environment if [your guests] stayed home and cooked their own meal.’”

So, also canceled are Christmas, Easter, Passover, and 4th of July.

Stay at home alone, in your pod, eating walnuts. Better yet, just eat worms.

Tucker Carlson and his guest Mark Steyn had some choice words for those who want to cancel Thanksgiving:

“‘The Huffington Post’ says you shouldn’t be taking a plane. You shall not be eating a turkey. Eating a Turkey is bad for the planet, even though it is not as bad as one of these flatulent cows that AOC wants to slaughter … instead of having a stuffed turkey, you should have some arugula stuffed with kale or kale stuffed with arugula. Makes no difference, tastes just as lousy either way,” said Steyn.

The pair then pointed out the hypocrisy of liberal jet-setters who preach to everyday Americans about their carbon footprints.

  1. The largest footprint in the planet is the stupidity of the Democrats that are full of s**** and every time they open the mouth just moronic statements come out. See Ocasio Cortez, Pocas Hontas, Pelusi, Omar, do I keep going?

  2. Huffington Post and Carnegie Mellow can go stuff themselves with all the Kayle and arugula themselves!!! I don’t think the American people are going to take their garbage seriously! Why don’t all the plant eating people go live in a cave or find another planet to live on!! The American people will never take seriously the garbage they and the AOC trio are spewing maybe the Squad should consider taking a space ship to outer space and get lost there so we don’t have to listen to such things like doing away with our food, holidays or our Constitution!! I hope, some one runs for their office and kicks them off their sounding board as a member of our government! All SOCIOLIST follow suit and that goes for the ones running to be the DNC nominee for President! Gobble, Gooble and Moo, Moooooo!!
    Try speaking and acting like a person with a brain rather than one with sawdust!! Leave our American way of life alone, if you don’t like it find another planet to live on believe me you won’t be missed!! Rather than that why don’t you go to a library and read American History and learn why we are the courty we are and how we got here! All liberals and socialist should be put in one state and it be fenced off from the rest of America since they have such disdain for our way of life! I hope and pray they never get into an office where they can do permanent damage!! They can all go to where the devil lives I’m sure he would welcome them all with both arms and his pitchfork! They make me sick we’re they born and raised by some form of vegetable! Go to H ‘LL

    1. Better yet, do they know how much carbon footprint goes into the growing of vegetables in quantities large enough to feed the entire world???
      THAT must be a biggie.

  3. What other garbage are they going to come up with? You can cancel whatever the hell you morons want but i will still celebrate those holidays! Especially Easter and Christmas–Christ Days. If you do not like it please feel free to move to another country as this one was founded on all these Holidays. I am so sick and tired of immigrants and dumbass government officials trying to change our ways for everyone who doesn’t want to accept our ways when they come here. They might get their feelings hurt, well all I can say is suck it up or leave.

  4. Why should anyone listen to these idiots. They want to tell us what to do or not do but I see these people flying in their private planes, driving their big fancy cars, and sailing in their yachts on our oceans. So, they talk big but don’t do anything to help. I will go about, enjoying my Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners without any concerns for their stupid talks.

  5. The Carnegie Mellon researchers can go ‘stuff it’. If they don’t want to eat turkey, fine, doesn’t mean everyone else has to stop eating turkey and giving Thanks. Let’em work the holiday.
