Fools on The Left of Us, Jokers on the Right: Salon Offers Up Turkey Day “Talking Tips”

Fools on The Left of Us, Jokers on the Right: Salon Offers Up Turkey Day “Talking Tips”

Never mind having to deal with this at your family gathering next week:

Salon never ceases to amuse me on a Sunday afternoon. Yesterday was no exception. They are now offering up the mouth-breathers, sky-screamers, community organizers, pussy hat models and pajama boys that make up some of our family trees advice on “how to survive Trump supporters” this Thanksgiving. From an article originally penned on AlterNet:

For some of us, the approaching holidays are a time of dread. Beyond beloved traditions like overindulging on food, alcohol and shopping, for some people, it’s inevitably a time when they will clash with loved ones over politics. Plenty of Americans have family members with opposing political views, and Trump has made these divisions even more severe. If progressives are having trouble understanding the conservatives in our own families, how can we begin to empathize with Trumpers who don’t share our blood?

The article cites Narrative 4, an organization which was launched five years ago with the goal of spreading the practice of “radical empathy” across the world using the act of storytelling.

“Every story has a place, even the stories we don’t like,”-Narrative 4 Founder, Colum McCann
