Social media exploded with ridicule and vituperation after a Huffington Post article proposed cancelling the beloved national holiday of Thanksgiving over its carbon footprint.

The liberal news outlet recommended that people simply stop travelling for Thanksgiving and eat vegetables instead of meat-based recipes to lessen the environmental impact.

Some simple recommendations for your meal include choosing a smaller turkey or ensuring that fewer ingredients are sourced from great distances. Celebrating with friends and family locally or finding a spot that requires less travel for everyone are a few ways to lessen your impact on the environment while celebrating the holiday.

The article was published on Tuesday and received the ignominious distinction known as a “ratio” on Twitter — when a tweet is so unfavorable the ratio of negative comments to supportive retweets is inverted.

The article received more than 900 responses but only 19 retweets.

Most of the comments were either mocking or derisive in tone.

“Frankly, getting together with people could lead to kinship, which is probably bad for the planet,” replied Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner.

“They are attacking Thanksgiving. The best day of the year. Unbelievable,” responded Chad Dukes.

“Want to reduce your environmental impact? No turkey, no Thanksgiving reunions, and definitely no clothes!” snarked Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review.

“Woke-ness: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy,” responded Mark Krikorian of the Center for Immigration Studies.

“Then how will you berate conservative family members over Medicare for All, impeachment, and net neutrality?” asked Jon Gabriel of Ricochet.

Here’s more on how to destroy Thanksgiving:

    Do you know what the rich do over the thanksgiving holiday? They do not slave over a hot stove, no, no, no, They fly to their favorite tropical island on a private Jet and spend time on the water on a private Yachts, eating and drinking to their heart’s content!
    A single flight on a private Jet uses about much fossil fuel as an average family uses for an entire year!

    Socialism for thee but not for me….says the Anti America Nazi Party of Sanders and AOC!

    My Thanksgiving dinner last year was a double cheeseburger & fries in a McDonald’s. I was far from the only one, they were actually quite busy.

    The SJWs need to lead by example. Therefore don’t come to my house but stay home and eat some sustainably grown edamame with your quinoa and kale in between chanting or whatever it is that you do. 🙂

    Just another attempt to hack away at American values and traditions. Fight the fight folks! By the way I would not wipe my ass with this newspaper.
