There’s a conservative lunatic named Charlie Kirk who has spent the last couple of weeks assailing liberals on Twitter because he thinks we are trying to cancel Thanksgiving.

I thought the man was just throwing punches at ghosts here because there is nothing in our ANTIFA charter about Thanksgiving. I mean, sure: We’ve all been brainwashed into believing that Christmas — THE DAY OUR SAVIOR WAS CRUCIFIED — is a cynical capitalistic institution (those garish Xmas light displays at WalMart in September are FOR JESUS), but no one gave me the memo about Thanksgiving. It makes no sense. Everyone loves Thanksgiving. It’s the one thing that Democrats and Republicans, socialists and AR-15 owners can all agree upon. Thanksgiving is a sacred holiday about food and eating and eating and food, and that’s something we can all get behind.

Except Mike Schur, creator of Parks and Recreation and The Good Place and hater of Thanksgiving. Schur went off on Thanksgiving food on Twitter last night.

This, coming from the man who hates fruit pie. Wow. Just wow. Way to make Charlie Kirk look good, Schur.
