Thank Goodness, You Can Now Set Boundaries With Your Family On Thanksgiving

Monday, November 21, 2016 8:39
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This kind of schtick has become more and more prevalent over the past few years, as Democrats apparently need someone to explain to them How To Act Civilized With Your Family And Friends On Thanksgiving (we see these recycled at Christmas, as well).

I especially enjoy the use of the angry pointing guy. It made me think this would be a Concern Trolling article making fun of liberals. Alas, no

It’s the holiday season, the point at which the real intensity of the sh*tshow that is 2016 will come home to roost between the roasted brussels sprouts and the pumpkin pie. Even if you have a family that entirely shares your views, it’s still possible to have an uncomfortable festive season as they hash out their particular ideas; but in this climate, it’s more likely than ever that you’ll be facing down opponents over the crisp tablecloth. Those relatives who hold anti-LGBT views, racist ideas, and idiotic beliefs they picked up from fake articles on Facebook will be empowered and out in force. How are you going to survive talking about politics with your family this Thanksgiving? Boundaries are here to help.

Political arguments during the holidays can, particularly in these times, seem like a good idea; if it’s not your job to convert one of your nearest and dearest to a better point of view, whose job is it? And that’s completely legitimate — but your duty to make the world a better place, one relative at a time, also needs to coincide with your duty to yourself and respecting them.

And Democrats need someone to explain this whole respect and civility thing. Here’s the overview of The Plan

  1. Figure Out What You Will And Will Not Discuss
  2. Vocalize Your Boundaries Beforehand — And Stick To Them
  3. Plan For Escalation
  4. Know That Some People Will Push It
  5. … And Have A Plan For When They Keep Going
  6. Have A Go-To Exit Phrase
  7. Monitor How You’re Feeling Throughout The Night
  8. Know Your Breaking Point

Number two is my favorite, where I can see liberals walking into the house and haranguing people right from the get go about what they refuse to be allowed to be discussed. Only in Liberal World do people plan out a get together with friends and family in this manner. It’d probably be easier for everyone if they just stayed home in their Safe Space bubble, playing with coloring books and watching …. well, is there anything on TV that a liberal can’t find something to complain about?
