As yet another Thanksgiving passes by, Progressives have found yet another reason to cry foul and declare racism, as they try to end ABC’s 1973 classic titled… “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving”.
Critics are now criticizing the movie, because they say that the dinner scene portrayed Franklin the ‘black character’ sitting on one side of the table alone, with a different chair than the other ‘white characters’.
On twitter, angry activists complained that Franklin was sitting in a rickety chair, and eating alone on one side of the table as the characters feasted for the holidays.
However, in a twist of irony, the character ‘Franklin’, was added to the classic by its creator Charles Schulz, in his effort to stand up to racism that was still widespread in the late 1960’s and into the 1970’s. He had originally added Franklin, following the assasination of Martin Luther King Jr., and through the inspiration of the teacher Harriet Glickman. The cartoon publisher, United Feature Syndicate, asked if he really wanted to add a black character, and Schulz reportedly said…
“Either you run it the way I drew it, or I quit.’ ”

Now, 18 years after the passing of Charles Schultz, and regardless of the facts and his efforts to fight against racism, the so-called PC (Politically Correct) police known as ‘Progressive-Socialists’ are working to turn everything into a racist fight, everything into hate, and everything into a twisted version of reality. All of which lead to comments like..
- “Why is Franklin in Charlie Brown Thanksgiving sitting all by himself at the table. Man. Things that I did not notice as a child,” @Asharp52 blasted on Twitter.
- “Not watching Charlie Brown Thanksgiving anymore, until they sit some people on the same side of the table as Franklin,” another critic tweeted, along with two black power-style fist emojis.
- “They give our friend the busted chair and won’t even sit on the same side of the table, more proof that Charlie Brown and his cohorts are RACIST,” slammed Twitter user @mwizzy128.
Ultimately, the Progressive-left will do anything, and use any ploy to use ‘racism’ as a tool to attack our nation, our past-times, our literature and movies, and ultimately our way of life. Now, it is time for the PC Police to reflect on their own actions, because it isn’t those they call the enemy, whom they need to worry about being racists, after all, they simply have to look in a mirror to realize, it is them,and not those they are accusing, whom are peddling racism and hate in not only America, but throughout the world itself.
