Rep. Akin Rewrites Thanksgiving


Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) took to the floor of the House of Representatives to rewrite the history of Thanksgiving. At one point, he opined, “It might be helpful to think back and say there’s more to Thanksgiving than the Pilgrims.” He explained that they were “a group of people who were willing to change the system, to think of different ideas.” Akin continued, “They came here with the idea that after trying socialism that it wasn’t going to work. They realized that it was unbiblical, that it was a form of theft, so they pitched socialism out. They learned that in the 1620s.”
