Advancing Liberty Through Action

400 Years Later and Now This...

Nov 26, 2020

This year we honor an incredible anniversary. Four hundred years ago, the Pilgrims left everything that was familiar. They left behind all but their most prized possessions and risked their lives “for the glory of God, and advancement of the Christian faith.”

Many of them never lived to see the next spring, but for those who did, they ushered in the birth of a fledgling nation striving toward the ideals of freedom of religion, freedom of press, freedom of speech, and independence from an oppressive king.

However, this year, our nation has seen these fundamental ideas challenged. We’ve faced unprecedented threats to our freedom. Now, celebrating the birth of our nation and the Pilgrims’ search for freedom is met with opposition and draconian restrictions.

  • California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) announced he is pulling the “emergency brake,” dictating all Thanksgiving celebrations must be outside for less than two hours. People are allowed to use an indoor bathroom in a home only if “the restrooms are frequently sanitized." He states people can only remove their mask to eat if they are six feet or farther away from anyone not in their household. And everyone must be back in their own homes by 10:00 PM.
  • There is no brotherly love in Philadelphia. Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney’s city requires you to celebrate Thanksgiving only with those living inside your home. All indoor gatherings of two or more households for Thanksgiving are banned, no matter how small.
  • Oregon Gov. Kate Brown (D) is urging people to call the police if seven or more people are celebrating Thanksgiving Day together.
  • Washington Gov. Jay Inslee (D) banned people from more than one household celebrating Thanksgiving together, unless they have quarantined, after which they still can't have more than 10 people.
  • New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said, “I must again pull back the reins,” restricting gatherings to 10 people before Thanksgiving Day.
  • New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) put in place a 10-person limit on gatherings and a curfew on all restaurants, bars, and gyms.
  • Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) pushed for no more than 10 people at Thanksgiving celebrations and urged residents to always stay home except for going to work or grocery shopping.
  • New Mexico Democrat Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham issued a stay-at-home order this month, and she limited Thanksgiving celebrations to five or fewer people.

This Thanksgiving Day, so-called free American patriots are under unimaginable control and mandates from dictators.
