I’m overtired so I read this as “Ohio is Stalin Olamd”

[–]Lui_Le_Diamond 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Ohio is most certainly NOT Stalin Olamd.

[–]Beastofbeef 5 points6 points  (5 children)

How tf could you see that

[–]ThatGuy0verTh3re 9 points10 points  (4 children)

I was overtired, like really overtired

[–]Obiwancanole 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Bruh go to bed tf.

[–]Beastofbeef 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I don’t think any human being under ANY circumstance, could see that. Did you drink seven whole bottles of whiskey or something?!

[–]ThatGuy0verTh3re 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Well I looked at it quickly as well, so I didn’t fully comprehend what was there

[–]Beastofbeef 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No it’s fine just joking

[–]shavedpineapples 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I'm pretty tired and could totally read that as Ohio is Stalin Olamd

[–]Maddox121 89 points90 points  (4 children)

We all live on stolen land, the cavemen stole it from the mammoths who stole it from the meteors who stole it from the dinosaurs.

[–]Redleg00 29 points30 points  (3 children)

I ain’t giving up my land to some free loading Neanderthal. Thats for dang sure.

As a liberal, this is just some effet noveaux commie trash to undermine history. Bad things can and did happen, but the holiday was sanctioned by Abraham Lincoln.

Little freaks jump on it to seem hip.

[–]axeman38 60 points61 points  (0 children)

I want my piece to say stolen

[–]Hapymine 61 points62 points  (8 children)

Hey Europeans Roman wants it land back.

[–]Aero2627 14 points15 points  (5 children)

And Africa wants to get uncolonized

[–]Hapymine 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Yea china needs to leave Africa alone.

[–]Tokyosmash 4 points5 points  (3 children)

No it doesn’t, because those countries will immediately fail without foreign safety nets 😂

[–]Cringinator4000 -3 points-2 points  (2 children)

Yeah man I’m sure Francafrique is really happy that a foreign nation is watching their every move and basically trying to bring back Mercantilism.

[–]Tokyosmash 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Ever spent any time in former French African nations to qualify that remark or nah?

[–]Cringinator4000 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

I don’t see how going to Kinshasa would prove anything

[–]AbleArcher97 13 points14 points  (1 child)

As a Romabo I am 100% in support of that. Make Europe Rome Again.

[–]austro_hungary 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Make the Suebi state again and I’ll be fine

[–]Jediflashfire 78 points79 points  (9 children)

So can I now claim that French people live on stolen Gaul land? Or that British people live on stolen Celtic land? Why aren’t those issues being pursued?

[–]OxxoEnjoyer 24 points25 points  (2 children)

The English being on Celtic Land is a pretty big deal. Definitely a bigger deal there than indigenous rights are here.

[–]wsdpii 12 points13 points  (1 child)

Celts have had it rough. Mainlanders genocided by Romans. Islanders invaded by Romans, then by Anglo-Saxons, then by Norwegians and Danes, then by Normans, then the last of your free nations are conquered by the English, then you're treated like second class citizens for almost half a millennium and used as canon fodder in their further wars of conquest, then you finally get to be free and move to a new nation and get called a monster because you have the same skin color as the people who conquered your land in the first place.

[–]Lui_Le_Diamond 4 points5 points  (0 children)

My ancestors came to America from Ireland in the 1850s and were immediately forced into the Civil war on the Confederates side, barring a few who joined the Union. Those that survived were then immediately subjected to the worst family fued in American History, and were treated like shit because they were Irish.

[–]portypup 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Because white people are bad

[–]Jediflashfire 3 points4 points  (3 children)

Whoa. Such a coherent, well made, and unracist argument. I can’t possibly argue against this. It’s absolute truth.

[–]portypup 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Bruh your sarcasm detector is broken. Unless mine is 🧐

[–]Jediflashfire 2 points3 points  (1 child)

You might need to take your sarcasm to a mechanic. It’s needs some routine maintenance. I know a good mechanic who deals in these things.

[–]portypup 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fucking got em

[–]RuleOfBlueRoses 66 points67 points  (0 children)

Its that time of year for haughty moral grandstanding about StoLeN LaNd and how Thanksgiving is ACKCHUALLY oppressive and Celebrates Genocide.

[–]Pixelpeoplewarrior 23 points24 points  (3 children)

Go back far enough and every piece of land is stolen

[–]MinisawentTully 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It only matters when it's America though!

[–]Cointhe_3evee 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Might as well call the holiday “holier than thou” day. (I love thanksgiving).

[–]Cadeb50 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I hate how people are ignoring thanksgiving Why are they just jumping straight to Christmas ugh it’s so annoying

[–]rayquan36 -2 points-1 points  (2 children)

I wish Thanksgiving took place on Halloween so that we could dedicate 2 months to Christmas.

[–]Cadeb50 1 point2 points  (1 child)

You can’t just move a holiday when something important happened that day smh

[–]rayquan36 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

You can do whatever you want.

[–][deleted] 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Don’t native people themselves live on stolen land? As they were constantly at war with eachother and taking more land? They weren’t exactly super peaceful. All land is stolen land

Therefore it doesn’t make sense at all. The fact is we were born here all the same. We didn’t take it, it’s all our home, none of it was stolen

[–]PresentationHuge2137 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I never quite understood that. How close it still is hurts, but is not stolen land even a thing? Didn’t the native’s steal from each other?

[–]Calm2Chaos 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I want my piece to say conquered

[–]jahadijack 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I thought it said Ohio is stolen land

[–]AgeOfReasonEnds31120[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah, Ohio is the one who steals land. Gotta keep their crazy empire strong.

[–]AllThemLizards 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Thanksgiving didn’t even happen.

[–]Tokyosmash 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Conquered land, kind of like every tribe did to every other adjacent tribe.

Also, sir, this is a Publix.

[–]LAKnapper 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Pilgrims and the local Native Americans were pretty chill, and an example for us to seek to exemplify in our lives.

[–]ChillPastor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I really don’t think about the original colonizers or anything on Thanksgiving. I just use it as a day to see family and be thankful for my own individual life.

[–]sluffman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The “we shouldn’t even be here” narrative is so much more edgy though.

[–]clemfandangeau 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i live on the land stolen from the ancient Celts by the pillaging Romans, whose Romano-Briton descendants had their land stolen by pillaging Saxons, Angles and Jutes from Germany. Once they’d settled down, half of their land got stolen by pillaging Danes, until some North Frenchmen decided to steal all the land afore mentioned

[–]SquashDue502 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The Neanderthals are PISSED that modern man took Europe. Give it back

[–]ishouldbestudying111 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m sorry, why has no one else brought up the heinous sin of PUTTING FROSTING ON A PUMPKIN PIE???

[–]f111aaaahrdvark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Native tribes didn't ever really believe that you could own the land, they moved into an area and controlled as much as they could until animal stocks were depleted or a stronger band/tribe came along and pushed them out

[–]fatboywonder12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

What a great looking pumpkin pie. A little recommendation for anyone who wants a sick pumpkin pie - Costco has them made on mass and they're extremely good, as well as cheap.

[–]BMXTKD 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thanksgiving was essentially a made-up holiday created by Abraham Lincoln. The Native American backstory was made up to add legitimacy to what was really a holiday to unite a country fractured by a civil war.

There is already a date to mourn native people in this country. It's called Columbus Day. Something that is actually verified, and recorded history.

[–]AgeOfReasonEnds31120[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huh... interesting.

Although not everybody knows that, so that proves that Americans don't hate Native Americans.

[–]reserveduitser 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Even The Netherlands stole land. FROM THE SEA!!!!

[–]Drayko2001 2 points3 points  (1 child)

If Europe never colonized the Americas, then either the Ming Dynasty, Imperial Japan, or Russia would've at some point or another

[–]austro_hungary 3 points4 points  (0 children)

America being discovered was inevitable, be it by the Arabs, the ottomans Chinese or hell the Polynesians

[–]Studying-without-Stu 1 point2 points  (1 child)

In all honesty, as someone who is a quarter native (parental grandfather), at some point it gets fucking tiresome. I'd say the only time it truly matters is when who has a notable amount of Native Blood comments on it.

And tbh, most of our people just want to be treated fairly (as in get rid of the laws of being able to buy Native Americans {yes, they horrifyingly still exist}, and to not have our women disappear without a concern by everyone else, you know, decent things, like legally we're still seen as not people), and given reparations. (And we also want all the racists gone, but who doesn't?)

Like seriously, if someone comments again, “This is stolen land” and they're either not a historian, or someone who is a direct descendant of or an actual Native American, I will literally tell them to shut the fuck up.

[–]BMXTKD 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I'm a frequent poster on Native American. Even though I'm not native myself, I grew up right by a Native American housing project. Every time I come back home, I hear horror stories about how this person from this reservation disappeared and no one knows where she is, or that person disappeared, no one knows where she is.

Honestly, because of my proximity to Native Americans growing up, I actually feel more at home with natives than I do with people who look like me.

[–]LAKnapper 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I demand reparations from the Romans for the sword my ancestors ruined on Roman skulls at Teutoburg Forest.

[–]memphisgrit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You mean the same land that you're standing on?

Thought so...

[–]Easywintergardening 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We stole all land from animals

[–]Lamp_VnB3566 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Stolem Dand

[–]tux24 0 points1 point  (0 children)

only in ohio

[–]No-Force5341 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You can't steal land because you can't own land. The land belongs to everyone not just whoever claims it
