Every conservative has one.
Even if your entire family is conservative, you raised your kids to love freedom, you left copies of National Review lying around for them to read, there always ends up one liberal at the family holiday table.
Maybe your daughter found him at that liberal arts college you sent her to and married him. Maybe it’s your sister, who rebelled against mom and dad in her teens and never quite drifted back. But it’s someone.
For me, it’s my mother’s boyfriend. We get along pretty nicely, until the subject turns to politics. And then we go from zero to sixty in about three seconds.
It happened a couple of months ago in a Thai restaurant. You could hear the sound of chopsticks being set down all over the place as the battle escalated. People stealthily craned to look, as if rubbernecking a particularly bad highway disaster. Why everyone was too polite to tell us to shut up I don’t know, because we certainly didn’t care if we ruined their red curry chicken or not.
Anyway, in this video, comedian Tom Shillue explains how to avoid such incidents and maintain decorum at the table this year. Remember, the Left knows it’s right, knows you’re evil, and isn’t listening to you anyway. So just enjoy the ham.
Got any stories to share about your liberal relatives?
