I didn’t engage in preemptive strikes, but I’m not going to let a liberal family member spout nonsense without challenging them. If they open the topic, they’re fair game.
That’s all I did.
But they have gotten so comfortable (due to the rules of what is PC) that they are unaware how many biased, nasty, anti-conservative statements they make.
I just sat back and waited for what they believed to be inane, innocuous statements and then countered quickly and cleanly, demonstrating to them how biased their comments were and how unfounded.
