Tell someone about a separatist Thanksgiving these days and an excitable citizen might just turn you in as an un-American subversive to the "human rights" thought police at the Justice Department.
After all, Bill Clinton has gleefully prophesied the end of a white majority in the U.S. as a prelude to a wonderful mixmaster world of "diversity." Separatism, we are told morning, noon and night, is the antithesis of America; the American apotheosis being the hallowed "melting pot."
But as the melting pot begins to appear more and more as a witches' cauldron, the concept that America was founded on the principles of compulsory integration is also looking ever more threadbare.
This is perhaps most apposite during our national Thanksgiving holiday which, when contemplated beyond the culinary silhouette of "Turkey Day," furnishes us with at least a nodding acquaintance with the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock.
And there lies the difficulty for our neo-Bolshevik mandarins of media and government, because everything about the Pilgrims runs counter to the modern philosophy of deracinated homogenization, including their very name.
One aspect of the modern disease is the refusal to name a thing. Weasel words are substituted, neologisms are coined and origins are thereby suppressed. We live in the age of compression and abbreviation. We are in too much of a hurry even to call our states by their actual names, so that Pennsylvania becomes PA, Minnesota is MN and our "zip" decodes the resulting enigma with a string of dull numbers.
By the same token we have dubbed those stalwart visionaries who in 1620 peopled the tiny Mayflower by their nickname--Pilgrims--rather than by the name by which they actually denominated themselves, Separatists.
In his 1902 masterwork, The Rise of Religious Liberty in America, Sanford H. Cobb wrote of the Pilgrims, "As to the rights of conscience and worship, they remained true to the principles, which in England gave them the name Separatists (as separating from the establishment) and which caused their afflictions and exile."
That the first Americans used the dirtiest pejorative in the slambook of political correctness to describe themselves mocks the activities of contemporary liberal hysterics who seek to squeeze our nation's two-fisted history into a cosmetic strait-jacket of prissy conformity to doctrines the Plymouth Fathers would have execrated.
The hidden truth is that those responsible for creating the first American political entity in history were Separatists who were opposed to the establishment and suffered affliction and exile. Yet today our rulers have the gall to tell us that we have no right to be separatists.
The sickly One World hybrid promoted by Comrades Bill and Hilary and their alleged Republican rivals, bears no resemblance to the world the Pilgrims made. Let us give thanks for that fact and for the fact that it is those who hold aloft the tattered banner of separatism today who are the true emulators and rightful heirs of the Separatists of Plymouth Rock.
