This has always been a thing in our household. I've watched it for the last 30 years and it brings back great memories of the kid's excitement to see Santa at the end. This year, my wife and I watched it alone with our special needs daughter Brianna who's 22.

Anyhow...the reason for my post is what a sad state it has become. Remeber, this is a HUGE honor for high school bands to perform in the parade as there's only a few spots.

This year, I was disgusted by two bands.

First, why in the fuck did they have a high school band from Mexico playing in the parade? Mexico does NOT celebrate Thanksgiving!

Second, why in the fuck did they have a nasty ass LBGTQPEDO gay band playing? It was fucking disgusting. The parade is for kids. Bunch of fucking groomers!

Rant off. Turkey time.

My Mom had it on while I was prepping the Turkey and saw the Mexican band and said the same thing. I get the inclusion angle (sorta) but Thanksgiving is an exclusively American holiday. If you are here you either celebrate it or you don't but don't mix in other cultures into it.

I gave it twenty minutes and turned it off in disgust. First time I've seen it in a dozen years.

First balloon:  Jenny-O Turkey Company
Second balloon:  a children's book character
Third balloon: Pillsbury Dough Boy

Next up ..A high school band chock full of OBESE marchers and majorettes.

We had it on briefly in the background this morning, with low expectations.  I think I heard the liberal terms, black, woman, cultural, and diversity used in the typical woke contexts within the first few minutes of tuning in.  I wasn't about to endure that BS, especially on Thanksgiving  We turned it off and played music instead.  Much better.

You left out the worst part of that story. He sang "Shake Your Money Maker" on the Lego float. That's right, a song about a stripper getting paid was sung on a float about a kid's toy.

That was the thing which pissed me off the most. The lip synching is forgivable. That song being sung on that float was not.

Just flipped to a replay of the parade. The rainbow uniforms of the Kentucky band made me flip the channel. Call me a homophobe if you want, but I've simply had enough of the gay agenda being shoved down my throat.

One of the performances had a black dude dressed as a woman.

The “First Nation” float had a “Native American” woman with a butch haircut and the homo flag incorporated into her traditional Native American clothing.

Sitting there trying to figure out if a Rockette is a dude or not before you perv on her takes the fun out of it.

Kinky Boots set in motion the downfall of the parade. It is no longer a wholesome, family oriented spectacle. It now exists for corporate virtue signaling beyond its original scope. Deviancy must be celebrated.

I can't believe they are still around now. I haven't set foot in a Macy's in over a decade. I wouldn't even know where to find one if I wanted to go shopping there.

I'm assuming NYC will take over the parade once Macy's goes out of business. It will probably just become the "NYC Thanksgiving Day Parade".

I also dont remember the first hour of the parade being broadway show routines.  They did Kinky boots last year which was a bunch of dudes wearing thigh high boots.  Outside of New York, noone cares about Broadway.

Just be glad this might help put NYC in a deeper hole when it comes to OT for public servants. NYC is about 2.9B in the hole. About 1B is from welcoming and housing bussed in migrants.

That's the problem; FFS, how do they waste a billion on a couple thousand illegals. They cry about it but had zero sympathy for the border cities dealing with them.

I worked LP for a Philly based department store chain for a couple of years. Macy's bought them and totally relaxed the shoplifting policy. Basically, you could pretty much steal whatever you wanted and walk out the door with it.

I’ve tried to find it before, but couldn’t…there was a YouTube video circulating with some speeches by gays and lesbians talking about their end game not being acceptance, but rather dominance. It’s like the of Law of Salutary Contradiction, whose formulation is: “That’s not happening and it’s good that it is.” While the Law of Merited Impossibility applies to the future, this one is about the present. It’s what the ruling class immediately switches to after what they insisted would “never” happen is happening before everyone’s eyes.

They won't call it that. "Thanksgiving" is rooted in Judeo-Christian values, so some other name will be used.
