LINWOOD, NJ — Conservative outsider, anti-establishment leader, and gubernatorial candidate Hirsh Singh today rejected Tyrannical Phil Murphy's new shutdown order canceling Thanksgiving for millions of New Jerseyans.
"Tyrannical Phil Murphy has no right and no authority to cancel Thanksgiving or meddle in the Thanksgiving plans of New Jersey families," Singh said.
In making his comments, Singh cited the unifying principle of recognizing a national day of thanks every year since the Civil War.
"It was President Lincoln who saw fit to proclaim a national day of Thanksgiving ending disparate thanksgiving celebrations on different days in different states," Singh said. "President Trump will once again proclaim the last Thursday in November to be our shared, national day of Thanksgiving. All Americans -- including New Jerseyans -- will come together with family, friends, and neighbors to celebrate our common appreciation for 'the gracious gifts of The Most High God' -- as Lincoln said -- at a time when a little national unity would do our country well.
"Phil Murphy's fear-mongering and insatiable appetite for central-planning cannot, should not and will not stop that."
