YouTube Celebrates ‘Unthanksgiving’

Allum Bokhari, Breitbart, November 26, 2020

The official YouTube account on Twitter celebrated what it called “Unthanksgiving” on Thursday, an obscure holiday the far-left platform claims is meant to honor “indigenous resistance.”

The official account of the Google-owned video platform has not posted any tweet celebrating Thanksgiving, snubbing the holiday currently being celebrated by its millions of American users in favor a 5-tweet thread about “unthanksgiving.”

From the thread:

For Indigenous and Native Americans, the fourth Thursday of November is dedicated to Indigenous history, activism, and resistance. It’s 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.



Google, which owns YouTube, is known for its woke left-wing culture. In 2018, Breitbart News reported on a leaked document from inside the company instructing managers to be wary of rewarding employees for adhering to the values of “white male dominant culture.”
