YouTube found out that Americans are in no mood for yet another woke lecture about their holidays this week when it received overwhelming backlash for posts slating Thanksgiving.
The Google owned company took the opportunity to ‘educate’ Americans on the history of indigenous people, an an alternative day of ‘activism and resistance’ called Unthanksgiving:
Unthanksgiving is about acknowledging, educating, and honoring centuries of Indigenous resistance. Coinciding with New England’s National Day of Mourning, Unthanksgiving activates Alcatraz Island, the site of a 19-month occupation by Bay Area Natives in 1969. pic.twitter.com/G3FUlz0WdU— YouTube (@YouTube) November 26, 2020
YouTube heading up the ‘resistance’ there from its corporate headquarters in California.
That wasn’t enough though. The ‘activism’ continued:
Unthanksgiving is about honoring Native American and Indigenous heritage, to better understand this history. How are you connected to – and connecting with – Indigenous heritage and history where you live? pic.twitter.com/rDuk06BDtN— YouTube (@YouTube) November 26, 2020
Everyday Americans were in no mood to accept yet more fake righteousness from Google, a company that has been charged with working with the Communist Chinese government, while sidelining human rights concerns.
Hey YouTube talk about the Uyghur genocide during Chinese New Year next.— Maggie 🌒🌕🌘 (@Miss_Maggie6) November 26, 2020
Your post is about a narrative that urges fellow leftist terrorists to accept the sedition. Today‘s leftist are tyrants that think they’re going to fool Americans. You support an ideology that has killed 100 million and counting.— My Oath Never Expires 🇺🇸 (@Gunalizer) November 27, 2020

You Commie sloth will have your day.
How about you acknowledge your allegience to China, a place with gulags for Muslims?— hugztown (@hugztown1) November 27, 2020
Others took issue with YouTube’s version of ‘history’:

Do me a favor and do some reading on what tribal combatants did to settler civilians, especially the women.
There is nothing special about the indigenous peoples experiance. They fought wars, enslaved and raped others, and commited genocide, all before the Europeans got here. They were treated better than some other ancient peoples, like the Cartaginians— Mocker61 (@Mocker611) November 27, 2020
I have plenty of relatives who are NATIVE AMERICANS who celebrate Thanksgiving and honor the day. Fuck YOUtube.— President-Elect Rizzo (@ThePawofRizzo) November 27, 2020
Time to get out the woke calendar and add yet another day of ‘resistance’ to it:
