If You Like Your Peaceful Thanksgiving, Obama Won’t Let You Keep Your Peaceful Thanksgiving (UPDATE: There’s a Video)

Praise the Lord and pass the gravy. President Obama’s online bot army wants you to go to your family Thanksgiving gathering armed with its ridiculous talking points.
Jonah Goldberg has posted the entire letter at NRO.
As if this wasn’t bad enough, MSNBC will get an hour of content out of it.
Devoting our whole show on Wednesday to how to talk about politics, news with conservative family members. Should be fun!

The letter assumes much — mostly, that the family liberal is the one anyone else turns to for advice. Seriously? Since when is liberalism a “voice of reason” or source of same? It’s entirely based on feelings and vague notions, not empirical facts.
I don’t know about you, but the prospect of listening to an OfA bot drone on about that craptacular law just warms my heart. Fortunately for me, there aren’t any OfA drones in my family. It’ll be football, turkey, pecan pie, maybe a trip to a gun range, and blessedly free of Obamabots.
Jim Geraghty makes a great point.
If you're going to denounce your parents' political beliefs, make sure you have moved out first.

What are the odds some OfA follower starts ripping into Dad the small business owner on Thanksgiving, only to have Dad remind him that he’s still on Dad’s insurance plan for another year or two? So, pipe down and eat some bird.
Update: There’s…a video. It’s horrible.
