The piece by Tova Mirvis in Monday’s Washington Post is actually a reasonably sweet tale of a woman navigating the first Thanksgiving of a second marriage and trying to please everyone, but the tweet and headline promoting it sounds like an utter nightmare: the wokest Thanksgiving ever.
Perspective: What I learned when I tried to make my blended family a gluten-free, kosher, no-soy, vegan, organic, low-acid, no-dairy Thanksgiving https://t.co/eo0PVzKReh

That you’re a selfish prick torturing your own family just to feel superior? https://t.co/m4NVQfNOWF

That’s what we thought, but really, it’s worth reading. Again, though, we wonder: aren’t there any media takes on Thanksgiving that don’t make the holiday sound like a politically charged Thunderdome or a sexist 1950s nightmare?
point of the story was a considerate lady trying her best — driving herself mad, and ultimately failing — to make a feast where everybody could eat everything. She’s the victim of the diet crazes, liberal insanity and kosher restrictions, not the perp.

If you don’t read the piece, at least scroll through the replies to that tweet promoting it. Come on: just the idea of a vegan, organic Thanksgiving set off our woke detectors.

You learned that you're a miserable, self aggrandizing putz who kills the joy of everyone around you? Liberals destroy everything that's good. Everything. https://t.co/8husu5di7K

That you're a terrible human being, a life vampire who apparently enjoys sucking what little fun, taste and tradition remains for us in this life? I'm just spitballing here. https://t.co/awIUErcHFz
