How The Left Tries To Keep Ruining Thanksgiving

I don’t know what it is about “holiday family gatherings” that the Left sees as “MAJOR POLITICAL OPPORTUNITY!” But this Thanksgiving, multiple left-wing groups, plus the Obama administration, are pushing the idea that Thanksgiving is the PERFECT opportunity to join together with family, eat a meal, and force awkward political conversations into these gatherings.
First up in the parade of indigestion-inducing leftists is the congressman from Florida, Alan Grayson, with a bad combination of fundraising and revenge.

Because the person who would pay to submit your name name for a phone call from Alan Grayson really, really hates you, and probably isn’t someone you should spend the holiday with. At least, not without a food taster.

Next up, Think Progress. After all, there is no better way to bring about family closeness than haranguing people about their carbon footprint, and if that turkey was “locally sourced.”

And then the Democrat party itself. They just KNOW how to endear you to your relatives. Especially those “Republican uncles.”
What about Republican aunts? Why are the Democrats denying equal opportunity offense to women? Why do they hate women????

More importantly, what happened to the spirit of the holiday?

But best of all, Josh Earnest wants you to talk to your family about….. gun control. Over Thanksgiving dinner.

I’m sure that will go over well.

During the White House press briefing, Press Secretary Josh Earnest continued to press a narrative set up by gun control activists in response to the terrorist attacks in Paris.

“As people sitting around the Thanksgiving table talking about these issues as they should and I’m sure they will all across the country, I hope that’s a question that will be raised and asked by members around the table,” Earnest said, referring to a bill supported by Democrat to ban people on the no-fly list from purchasing a gun.

In fact, I’m sure it will go over just about as well as the Obama-inspired suggestion on how to ruin Thanksgiving from two years ago:

And I think the reception to it will probably go very much like this:

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone, and may your family gatherings and meals be free of politics, awkward conversations relating to social issues, and relatives who would pay to give your phone number to Alan Grayson.

  • This is funny and sad at the same time. An inability to put politics aside for the sake of family togetherness can ruin not just a family get-together, but a family. My siblings and I used to get together on Thanksgiving (pretty much the only time we ever saw each other), until some years ago when the two “progressive” ones discovered that the other two of us were small-government libertarian conservatives. Exasperated by their failure (not for want of trying) to convert us to their more enlightened views, they pretty much severed the relationship. Our family has not gotten together since then. Thanks, Democrats!

    Progressives seem to have a pathological level of anxiety about having to spend time outside of their “safe spaces.”

    The Leftist, Regressive, SocioCommunists will ALWAYS find a way to denigrate America and Americans…’s a given. They’re Communists in the Alinsky/Marxist mold, they loathe freedom, liberty and free, uncluttered speech…….period.
