Posted on 11/22/2017 8:11:41 PM PST by PJ-Comix
David Graham, a writer at The Atlantic, thinks it might not be a good idea to annoy your fellow Thanksgiving guests with discussions about politics. However, this year he is making an exception and is urging his fellow liberals to attempt reeducating the "unenlightened" Thanksgiving guests with a plethora of leftist talking points. Why? Because of President Donald Trump.
Here is Graham making the case for risking the ruination of your Thanksgiving dinner by injecting liberal politics into the conversations in Go Ahead, Talk Politics at Thanksgiving:

Wear MAGA hat
Wear I BELIEVE JUANITA shirt
Fit the words LOCK HER UP in the conversation
If the libs start being annoying at the table, just start a Trump chant
For the past couple of years, when one of my idiot nephews says something stupid, I just flatly say I do not agree. I am tired of my polite silence being taken for agreement. When they try to mix it up, I say again that I do not agree, but would rather not get into it during the holiday gathering.
Drives them FReepin bonkers!

Who do you want to rob now?
That was my second thought.
My first was to bounce their head off the oak door frame before shoving them out the front door ala Al Bundy.
This year, I have added a new twist. I printed YOU STOLE MY BICYCLE on the back of one of my business cards. Whenever somebody wants to talk about Accused Child Molester Roy Moore, I will have them read the back of the card aloud, then insist that they refer to me as Accused Bicycle Thief... for the rest of the night.
Sooner or later, liberals will make a statement that's just absurd on its face.
You wait for that to happen, and then you just say, without emotion, "why is that?" or "how do you know that?"
Shorter is better. A simple 'why' at the right moment can discombobulate them, and then... as they struggle to recover their virtue-signaling momentum, you just change the subject.
LOL, what he means is to re-educate the enlightened about communism. But it won’t work, the true enlightened are those who are not LW communists
He’s the Anti-Dale Carnegie; “How to Lose Friends and Stop Influencing People, in 10 Easy Lessons!”
but on the off chance one was brought as a guest of an invitee and they intentionally started an argument, they would be shown the door while their words were still coming out of their mouth
As a libertarian/conservative my favorite response to most of the libtard jibes is laughter.
They really freak out.
Tip number one: Be yourself.
I do not understand why they would want to cause disruptions. That certainly isn’t going to make others want to join them. Hillary found that out with her ‘deplorables’ accusation.
Are the Libs just so miserable that they want everyone else to be miserable, too? [Rhetorical question. Of course, they are.]
Well good thing at our Thanksgiving feast tomorrow ONLY Republicans are coming(Our side of the family) my uncles and their kids are going elsewhere..good can’t stand to hear their wives spew liberal talking points anyway
Who do they think they're kidding?
The America haters do this every year.
Liberals are miserable creatures, trust me I know some..they have nothing going on in their lives except their own misery
Just tell them your finger went right through the toilet paper this morning and you got Hillary all over your finger.
We’re having a pleasant Thanksgiving in Blanchard, ID with like-minded friends. Alcohol, tobacco and firearms will be enjoyed in the course of the celebration. We all have a great deal to be thankful for.
