There have been many blogs posted around the interwebs written by left wing organizations on how to push their fairy tale facts and undocumented statistics onto conservatives over Thanksgiving dinner. While most people would rather enjoy the holidays with family than talk about politics, the Democrats insist on dumbing down others over turkey and mashed potatoes. So before you get all liquored up on Turkey Day and end up telling your left wing relatives to take a flying leap, here are some tips for dealing with Democrats.
IMPORTANT – you must remember that Democrats have been Grubered for decades.
Democrats are indeed the “Stupid Voters” that Jonathan Gruber was talking about in his viral videos that recently came out. They have no clue that they were made to be fools by their own leaders in their own party. Some may know but they will refuse to believe the truth. This is why they are Democrats. Be gentle with them. Their emotions are fragile and the recent elections in which Republicans slaughtered them has left them in “meltdown mode”.
You may have a “pajama boy” relative sipping hot cocoa who is trying to push Obamacare talking points on you. Do not laugh in his face. Explain to him gently the facts and stats without hurting his sensitive man-child feelings. Many Democrats still like to believe that Obamacare is a success. Unfortunately the numbers; costs and “side effects” of it have been an epic failure. Gently list the facts about Obamacare and how Democrats lied to get it passed and that many Americans are truly hurting due to increased costs. Then go for that second helping of mashed potatoes.
The paid hacks at Everytown for Gun Safety are pushing the left to push gun control at Thanksgiving dinner. These are typically very shrill women who have hearing issues when it comes to real facts about crime statistics. When they continue to spew fairy tale facts that are pulled out of unicorn behinds, simply ask them if they are pro-choice. If they are pro-choice for abortion, how can they not be pro-choice for women protecting their living children? That ought to shut them up. Also, remind them that billionaires like Michael Bloomberg, who funds Everytown, has armed security for his own family. Then go have some dessert.
Of course some wingnut is going to bring up Ferguson and “social justice” or something. And of course they will blame “White Privilege” and society for the death of Michael Brown. Remember, they are parroting race baiters like Al Sharpton, Obama and Holder. Ask them what Democrats are doing about resolving crime in the inner cities where Blacks are killing Blacks at alarming rates? Ask them why they agree with protesters who destroyed the businesses of Blacks in Ferguson? Remind them that they agree with the justice system when it’s convenient (like when SCOTUS ruled in favor of Obamacare). At this point you’ll probably need a cocktail as you’ll most likely be called a racist.
The latest talking points from Democrats are that the economy is doing great! If the economy is doing great why poverty still at the highest it’s been in 50 years? Why are there more people on food stamps than in the history of this country? Why are there more people out of the workforce now than in history (and no, it’s not just because some of the people retired – 92 million people who could be in the workforce did not simply retire). The deficit is almost $18 Trillion and growing – they will blame Bush. Try not to laugh in their faces. Have another drink.
In the Obama Administration’s failed effort to actually improve the economy, they are continuing to push an increase in the minimum wage to $10.10 per hour because people with children can’t live on minimum wage. Ask your Democrat relative when was the last time they earned minimum wage? Ask them if they actually know how many people earn minimum wage (the number is around 2 million out of the entire workforce) and then ask them if they know who makes that number up? Hint: the majority of people who earn minimum wage are school-aged and or married and work part-time. Your pajama boy relative or femi-nazi cousin may insist that you simply hate poor people. Just remind them that minimum wage laws were originally racist in intent and have the same affect today, hurting young black men the most. Then give them a drink.
This may be a big topic since Obama has decided to use his pen and phone to do Congress’ job. If your mealy-mouthed relative brings this up ask them if it was really so important to Democrats, why didn’t they pass comprehensive immigration reform in the first 2 years when Obama was in office and Democrats had complete control? This will most likely leave question marks above their Grubered heads. At this point, you’ll be having some fun so just have another cocktail!
There are many other topics that they may hit you up with but since you are probably informed and don’t waste brain cells watching PMSNBC, you’ll be all set. Try not to laugh directly in their faces. That’s just not nice. You may want to remind them to just enjoy the holiday since Obama and Democrats are waging such destruction on this country that you all may not be together next year to celebrate. Whatever you do have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving!!! And remember, one of the things you have to be thankful for this year is that you weren’t Grubered!!
