Skip to comments.How to Survive Thanksgiving at Your Liberal Relatives
Posted on 11/18/2012 10:01:02 AM PST by Kaslin
As a public service to our readers, and as a gesture towards civility in our national discourse, we offer the following how-to-guide for surviving Thanksgiving dinner at the home of your triumphant liberal relatives:
Arrival. Your home looks lovely. Almost like its worth what you paid for it. Obama didnt help with that yet, did he? Oh, well, maybe next term. May I use your bathroom?
In the unlikely event that your hosts home has appreciated in value, use this introduction instead: Love what youve done with it. Better dump it before the new year, though, or you might face that new Obamacare tax. (Wait until after dinner to make a lowball offer.)

Here is how I do it.
Oh gee, sorry.. Busy that day.
If I went, me, my wife and kids may be the only survivors.
Go to local Truck Stop & eat a nice Thanksgiving dinner with the really hard working truckers of America.
Without them, we would have nothing in our stores to purchase. Most truck stops go out of their way to produce nice holiday meals for those who are on the road.
You may convince them that they are not equipped to argue with you, but you probably don’t actually change their minds. They just withdraw from the field. I mean, go for it, but I’m coming to the conclusion that a person’s politics are pretty closely tied up with their basic personality, and 47% of this country is sociopathic. I’ll just wait and see what happens, and do my best to make sure my cats and I are fed and safe. I don’t think there’s much else I can do.
Help serve; help with the dishes.
Dont sit around and whine.
Dont get drunk.
Remember your blessings.
Find joy in the day spent with the ones you love.
and pay for their meal.
I’ve done that in the past. Might just do it again this year. My son loves the stories.
Chances are, they have no clue about any of these things. Then give them some links like this: http://www.youtube.com/embed/HlTxGHn4sH4 Ask them if they've ever heard the media mention Obama's pledge make electricity rates skyrocket in 2008 or in the recent campaign.
One of my brothers married a woman from Boston...she was a died in the wool Kennedy Democrat. The Clintons were her idea of a perfect President and First Lady. We welcomed this woman with open arms because she was a great person, misguided but great. My brother spent years explaining and proving to her what was really going on in the world...now she is a Republican and her family is stunned.
Don’t fight with misguided family members, drip the truth on them like water torture and have patience.
I cut off relations with my Leftist relatives (my parents) for about 1 1/2 years now. I have no regrets; I have tried in vain to convince them of the evils of the Left and 0bama, but to no avail. It’s time we think of these people as the enemy, with no excuses for ignorance. You can show your love for them by praying for them to wake up from their delusion. But, you should never give them the mistaken impression of approval by showing them respect. Otherwise you are conferring tactic acknowledgement that their ideology can work.
I always suspect they are covered with things like "Shrimp with Vegetables" and "Chicken and Broccoli."
Ditto. I don’t like being around stupid robots.
And what’s funny is I have some who come on here to read my posts. To them it must be like looking at a car wreck. They don’t want to see the horror but they can’t look away. Again, stupid robots.
Liberals do not celebrate Thanksgiving ,they fake it
I'll be at home this year .... not getting family invites any more .... my liberal friends invited me, but that was right after the conventions, and now I don't think they would. One of them stopped talking to me in the interim anyway since I wouldn't back down and agree that conservatives are just as bad as liberals.
Getting along with liberals usually means a spine-ectomy.
Got into a dinner discussion a week ago with a liberal across table who was gloating about Obama's win and the discrediting and discarding of all persons and things conservative; he hadn't heard about vote fraud, apparently (or was ignoring it since it was "good" fraud), or about ' Rat voter suppression schemes. Instead he was going on about some "viral" video that redounds to Obama's credit ..... at which point I lost my temper and told him, "Viral? Viral? I got your viral right here for you -- " and then I directed him to the videos of the New Black Panthers screaming at white voters in 2008 and threatening them with police batons. He hadn't heard that one. At that point, his wife said to him (ignoring me), "That's why you shouldn't talk politics at the dinner table." Oh, yeah -- there might be a conservative subhuman at table, by mistake.
It’s official you receive humorous post of the day.
If she died in the wool, then you should have buried her.
OK, OK, I’ll give you my opinion straight and serious; this is what I am doing: Cancel friendships with all known liberals. Period. End of discussion.
Yes, I did that. No phone calls, texts, emails, invites, nothing. I will not in any way participate with any Obama Voter that voted to do me harm. That is the way I look at it and it is the way I will act. I will refrain from any activities that in a direct or indirect way support, help, or sustain liberalism. Of course, I cannot possibly cut out all liberals as who knows what made my socks or gasoline, but anything I can identify and cut out I am.
For that invite to a liberals house: “No, thank you. I cannot possibly be friends with someone that votes to harm me. Voting Obama wasn’t funny, and it is going to have serious and harmful consequences to you and me both. Grow up and stop rebelling against your parents. Life isn’t a game.” I said that to more than one person lately. Friends? Screw them as they screwed me. With “friends” like that I don’t need enemies.
One thing I am not, silent or bite my tongue due to the fact that I have kids that will be in the middle of the short-sighted pragmatic policies politicians we vote for are encumbering them with. My tolerance would be a lot more lingering if I did not have kids.
If she had died in polyester would that require cremation?
Honestly, if any of my relatives even WHISPER the name of zer0 in a laudatory manner, I will leave POST HASTE! I don't give a damn if it's family, ignorance is ignorance no matter to WHOM it's attributed.
I can’t believe I did that, usually I know better. You got me.
