When did saying Happy Thanksgiving become taboo?

Political Correctness is nothing more then mind control for the weak. So, it's very unfortunate that so many Americans have fallen victim to the mental castration in the name of being "tolerant". I found myself scratching my head in bewilderment leading up to Thanksgiving. As I was listening to people talk about the Thanksgiving holiday, people were mentioning the holiday part, but they would not utter the word "Thanksgiving". People would just say to others to have a "Happy Holiday". Several people told me to have a "Happy Holiday". I in turned always responded with have a HAPPY THANKSGIVING". I felt like I was the only non zombie in a town filled with zombies in a horror movie. Then again, it could have been like being in a scene from the Invasion of the Body Snatchers or Stafford Wives. I've been trying to figure out a logical reason for why saying Thanksgiving would be considered "offensive". I may have figured it out. Thanksgiving isn't a religious holiday. Christmas and Easter are. The word "thanks" in Thanksgiving would imply to show gratitude to someone other them him or herself. To give "thanks" could mean that a person possibly could be giving thanks to maybe a higher power for their blessings just like the pilgrims did when they came to this land. It's just a thought to why the PC police would try to tone down the word THANKS in the holiday of giving thanks.

Creating uncertainty and blowing smoke is what gives the Language Police all their power. Without it, why would anyone need some non-Biblical "higher authority" (like the New Left dominated "Modern Language association) to turn to for the politically correct answer?

And holiday "traditions" form the mainstays of culture. You can't develop a counter-cultural revolutionary consciousness without undermining these "ritualistic" mainstays.

People who find the words Happy Thanksgiving or Merry Christmas offensive should move to Communist China.

I think people who preach tolerance the loudest are the most intolerable wretches the world has ever known not to mention the most hateful.

Tyrone, most dont what Thanks is let alone Thanksgiving. Schools teach that the white man did the Indians wrong and Thanksgiving is a bad day, as they eat the turkeys served. Saying thanks is taboo today. It might offend someone.

American Indians or Mongolians killed, enslaved other tribes just as much as Europeans did to each other and as much as African tribes did to each other. Indians were known for scalping, not learned from whites, but a habit of their own making when capturing other tribes after raids.

Indians fed whites so they were not so bad, otherwise the Indians would not have fed them.

Indians also bought black slaves from white as slavery was also a part of Indian culture. Tribes in Oklahoma are trying to decide whether or not to accept blacks back into the tribe as blacks are not completely blood, just mixed.

Political Correctness would have us all believe that every single Indian tribe that was on the North American continent prior to the pilgrims coming to the new world were peace loving people that got along with their neighboring tribes. Liberals are good at revisionist history.
