Celebrity is as celebrity does. As we all give thanks for the good things in our lives, as we all count our blessings and express gratitude, Angelina Jolie has cast herself as all-purpose killjoy.
If Thanksgiving needed its own Ebenezer Scrooge, it has now found it in Angelina Jolie.
Politically correct to a fault, capable of seeing the worst in everything, Angelina will forbid her family from celebrating Thanksgiving because, to her mind, it celebrates murder and mayhem. Link here.
In fact, she is not even going to spend the holiday in America. How better to show that she hates American crimes against indigenous peoples.
If America has done bad things then America has never done anything good, anything that is worthy of her presence or her love.
Of course, the fault here is ours and our alone. What kind of country pays attention to the cretinous blather of celebrities?
So here’s one more thing to be thankful for: you’re not Angelina Jolie.
