Prepare for the True-Believing Progressives this holiday season (those of you with some in your family) - they have their marching orders. It doesn't appear to be incidental, a coincidence, or random.
The scariest advice comes at the first link, from Slate. The article is titled, I kid you not, "How To Pick A Fight With Your Relatives This Thanksgiving." They forgot the modifiers ("moronic, racist relatives") but don't worry, they cover that in the article.
You've prepared all year in Internet comment sections and by yelling at Fox News on the television screen, and now you find yourself face-to-face, in close quarters, with actual Republicans, right across the table. They're not going anywhere, and neither are you. Despite what you’ve heard about avoiding holiday conflict, now is your time to fight...
That's not the sentence I'm referring to, however. It's this one.
Stick to short, sarcastic, tendentious remarks to get things going. "I'm thankful for all that free stuff Obama gave me."
Oh, I'm sure that'll make you the hit of the gathering, lefty. I certainly hope this is written tongue-in-cheek, though based on the many other outlets advising similarly, I suspect it's not. Remember, if Barack Obama didn't walk into Abercrombie and slap two Ben Franklins on the counter for a pair of jeans and a t-shirt then he didn't really give you any "free stuff."
