RooRoobird20 starts the thread, and sets the tone, calling her family 'the enemy.'
Husband and I are the only conservatives and Trump supporters in my large extended left wing family. We have always been quiet when family idiots start braying against Republicans, conservatives, Trump, etc.By disowning liberals, RooRoobird20 is taking a stand for the future!
No more. I'm done with the ignorant fools in my family. I'm taking them on in person and on Facebook and I imagine they all hate me at this point--including my brother, who is an executive at the St. Louis Post Dispatch. What's new is I DON'T CARE anymore if they hate me and never speak to me again.
I've told them "This is Total War, and we are on opposite sides. You are with the enemy and you are now the enemy."
How is it going with your families and family dinner discussions LOL?
I do love most of my family and I am never ever the one to start the argument—ever. But I’m tired of being the polite doormat at family gatherings. I have a right to speak up, and I will.I'll bet wally_bert's 'Marxist cousin' just thinks the Fair Tax is dumb or something:
This election is too important for me to sit back and let the stupid, false things that are said go unanswered. The future of our country, our children and grandchildren are at stake.
Two exceptions, a marxist cousin and spouse who will waste the vote on the nowhere libertarian since she thinks Don is some kind of power mad dictator and doesn’t like the harridan since she is the harridan.combat_boots proudly declares his stand of skipping a single holiday:
Chez Boots isn’t trekking to my brother’s over Thanksgiving because of this.Guenevere proudly flaunts her complete lack of perspective:
My SIL is a moonbat.
Do your best to love your family. Politics isn’t worth it. Not even close.Guenevere is that Internet crazy Mom...
You are so wrong
This isn’t politics, and you know it!
This is slavery or free.
Glad/SadParmy declares that people avoid her because those people have personal problems:
Glad I’m not alone.....( hubby, daughter, me and ALL of you on this thread)
Sad it has come to this......indeed a Civil War......sister in law, and sadly my son
I, too, am tired of tiptoeing around on Facebook....
....I am a proud Deplorable and My Facebook friends know it.
.....and I have found my true friends......and lost some who I thought were my friends
I am more bold.....wearing my Trump shirt out and about....
....as well as my Trump pins...
....and my car bumper stickers!
Don't feel bad. You are not alone. I have a brother and two sisters-in-laws that don't call any more and avoid my wife and I.longfellow is actually kinda excited:
They have a personal problem because there is nothing wrong with us.
Just like the civil war.And, of course theater person miss marmelstein proudly declares how she pwns her liberal friends on Facebook once she gets tipsy:
I’m lucky in that my family agrees with me but none of my friends do. I tolerate only so much and then after the second scotch-on-the-rocks, level them with the force of my wit and intelligence. They are rarely up on the news.And we also get to learn more about secessionist central_va!
Yesterday, I took on a dumb Brit on FB who promptly unfriended me when I schooled her about Hillary and her rape victim and the anarchy of rape evidence before the law set in to attempt to shield the victims. She didn’t know what hit her.
You think it is rough for you? I have a bull dyke SIL.Was not expecting that, given how outspoken a Confederate central_va was, I expected he came from a family of Lost Causers.
son of terrence hates how close-minded his family's liberals are. The only cure is ranting at the grandkids!
My wife and I are infuriating the old and feeble minded liberals within our family. They can not be saved. Hillary could eat a live baby on the steps of the White House and they would say she needed the iron.
Our hope has to be with the youth and those still working. The youth need to know that they owe tens of trillions in debt thanks to the criminal politicians.fwdude remembers when Jesus said be an asshole to your family in my name:
The truth will divide families. Even Jesus acknowledged this.Mears's family is tending liberal by generations. Coincidentally, she has the self control to avoid politics.
My kids are middle aged and 2 of them are libs,3 are not.rigelkentaurus is still thinking about the cousin she declared an enemy Communist a decade ago...
We just don’t discuss politics when we are together.
They are all very good to me and I like to keep that in mind.
The grandkids,with 1 exception,are libs.
Very nice families can have mixed religions,ethnicites,races,or political persuasions.
I wrote off a first cousin and her husband back in 2006. I will not put up with communists in my family. I also do not care if they hate me - they are my enemy as they actively work against me, my family’s well being, and everything I believe in.How could someone like HARRY TUTTLE, whose screenname references a movie with themes of nonconformity at all costs, be so proudly close-minded?
Gave up discussing politics with family after 1980 election.Ammo Republic 15 is proudly of a pure conservative family that won't allow any race-mixing!
Friends after 1992 election.
Liberals are no logic zone.
I guess I’m pretty lucky, on both me and my wife’s side of the family which counting uncles, aunts, nephews, parents, first cousins and so on it’s solid conservative and voting Trump.Old Grumpy knows that even as he makes life crappier for himself, life goes on:
And God help the family member that brings “diversity” into our family. They would be disowned forever!
My own family gathering this Thanksgiving will be five people fewer than in the past. I’ve decided I’m not going to worry about it. Life goes on.fwdude explains that when you disown liberals, you're punishing them way more than you're hurting yourself!
My certain guess is that, conservatives being what the are and liberals being what they are, they need you more than you need them. It is lonely in the leftist echo chamber, and leftists thrive off of controversy, mostly concocted controversy. After all, they have no compunction about denigrating conservatism around you, while you are decidedly more reserved for the sake of relationships.Gay State Conservative blames liberals for all of it:
Let them try getting along without their "foil" of conservative family members, and they'll eventually try to make up to you. Mark my word.
In a perverse sense, I really believe that leftists deep down detect a core of eternal truth in the conservative position, and derive a certain sense of security from its existence. If truly backed to a wall, I don't think they would admit to wanting to live in a world completely devoid of conservative values and people. That world would even be a nightmare to THEM.
I'm certainly no family therapist but...this country is,today,far more divided...far more inclined to literally hate those with opposing views...than it's been since the 60s (don't know if you're old enough to remember the 60s...I certainly am).
If this attitude filters down to families that's just another price we pay for the filthy Maoist attitudes of certain members of my generation (Boomers) who started this ball rolling in the mid-60s.Huh. It looks like T-Bone Texan is related to quite a few cartoonish liberal strawmen!
Sadly, I now hate my extended family. It’s official. They are dead to me, and I do not say that in jest, but as a bitter, elderly Jewish man, which I am not. Not Jewish, anyway.max americana has a story to tell, of course. But being the Mary Sue superman he is, it lacks much bite:
Love was not enough to create a commonality between us; their extremist leftist views (which they parrot without any understanding or critical thought) makes them just like all the other credulous mouth breathers that would destroy what I cherish and value most.
It did not happen all at once; it was a dawning of understanding over time. When my wealthy aunt proclaimed solidarity with OWS even though they would wear her skin as a coat it killed me a little inside.
My wealthy cousin lives in a gated community on the side of a mountain in CA, and is horrified that I seek to insulate myself from the violence of the underclass that lives mere blocks from my family. In his mind I should embrace that diversity, and I am a racist ass hole for not doing that.
When having a dialog with my father he reverts, literally, to “war is bad” with no desire to understand the complexities of our world or to acknowledge that peace without justice is neither.
And don’t get me started on my gay brother. He has morphed into a hateful militant homo who has no use for “breeders” and holds heterosexuals in utter contempt. He never leaves his homo world and lives surrounded by either homos or those that fawn over that lifestyle.
Thank you for letting me vent. A part of me has died, and it has caused me great sadness.
I dont talk to my brother because he’s a liberal asshole. No really. I dont. Most of my family members are libtards and the dinner table during Christmas looks like downtown Baghdad after the talk turns to politics.Donnafrflorida is bravely resentful:
It gets so bad that no one wanted to exchange gifts lol
If i find you supported hillary.. Dont darken my door. Dont ring my phone. I lived under 8 years of hell. If u give me 4 mire. To hell with youGOPe Means Bend Over Spell Run hates how Hillary voters are either rich or poor and censor his free speech:
I have no use for Hillary voters. Frankly, I hope they never speak to me again. All they do is shout and stomp off in an effort to cut off debate and free speech.
Frankly, the Hillary supporters I know are wealthy elites or freeloaders or self professed victims. If there is more of them at polls, the country is lost forever. It will be time to retire and stop paying taxes to support their bullshit spending.BunnySlippers knows the problem is females:
All the males at the office are with me but none of the females, they all shun me.Lest you miss the point that women are evil, BunnySlippers makes it again:
Women are largely stupid. My GF is all about touchy-feely “feel good’ issues.tinyowl has a much bigger post rationalizing away one's family. I've excerpted the sad, sad, conclusion here:
Biological 'family' -> the duty attached to it, the obligation -> is a concept. It's ego based - it is an illusion, a hypnosis ... that the society is all sick with the family illusion ... reinforces the illusion ... it's a collective hypnosis.Cowgirl of Justice tells of how her sister listened to hateful talk radio that made her mad:
If, since being born, they have not earned a place in your life where they are welcome - simply on the face of it - welcome, and you already know whether they have or not ... release them from the burden of wasting their energy by causing suffering in your life.
I know from rather extreme experience ... the cost and the benefit ... it works ... and it works not because you have eliminated 'these awful people, the causes of misery' ... but because you have obeyed God.
Attack only long enough to force them from your home. Every once in a while, check in to see if they have changed.
When I last visited my sister in Seattle, she would have Air America on and it would put her in a mood of absolute hatred for the entire day. It got so that when she would get in the shower, I would turn it off and have breakfast waiting for her (cinnamon french toast with lots of melted butter and real maple syrup and extra crispy bacon) and she would be in a good mood for the rest of the day. It was unsettling how vicious AA was. I was just flabbergasted at the outright lies they told.Cowgirl of Justice has rejected all of her family as below her standards:
I broke with all of my family (except for my father) not because they were liberals but because they had the traits of liberals: lying, cheating, money borrowing and never pay back, hate-filled, welfare loving, weak minded, kleptomaniac, non-Christian, back stabbing, Fox News hating, venomous, vicious, always trying to get something for nothing, dishonest, name calling treasures.ladyjane points out how you can use you inheritance to make you kids hide their liberalism!
Plus they’re liberals.
You’ll be fine.
Do you disown your child if they are liberal?EQAndyBuzz boasts of pissing of his family:
Remind them that Hillary wants to raise the inheritance tax to 65%
Then tell them you are spending every cent now rather than give all that money to the government.
Once they see their inheritance disappearing they'll put a Trump sign on their lawn.
Several years ago I told my in laws if Hitler had a (D) next to his name they would vote for him. And we are Jewish.bert is pretty sure some out-and-out lunacy will shut up the libs.
That took a few years to heal.
Tell them of the coming warT-Bone Texan cheers on a Freeper planning on starting a fight on Thanksgiving:
Their lives are at risk if Hillary wins
No matter what the result is on November 8, I hope my wife’s ultra left wing, Columbia grad, liberal, NYC metrosexual douchebag, know-it-all, brother-in-law opens his big mouth on Thanksgiving Day. I am then going to knock his teeth right out of his stupid head!!Post-election thanksgiving is gonna be brutal.
I commend you on the fire in your belly!
