"The holidays are coming up. And although gatherings will probably be smaller this year, or taking place virtually rather than in person, you may find yourself in a difficult conversation with a friend or family member. Now normally, a good rule of thumb is to avoid politics at the dinner table altogether — but this year, in the aftermath of a bitterly divisive election, and with a global pandemic raging, there may be no way around it. Political arguments are a part of life, but increasingly in the U.S. they take place between people who disagree not just over policies, but objective reality, posing a dilemma over how to respond when confronted with misinformation, baseless internet rumors, or conspiracy theories. Yahoo News Senior Political Correspondent Jon Ward explains his strategy for how to talk about such theories without starting an argument."

The time for talk has come and gone. If people are on the left still then nothing you cn say will change their minds. The MSM has done a brilliant job of creating fake news in so many places that there are now 2 realities in this country.

The best way to eliminate political discourse at Thanksgiving is to ban/curtail gatherings, mandate masks and propagate fear.
