Thanksgiving

We hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving, but we want to know if you and your family discussed politics at the table?

This political season saw one of the most divisive presidential campaigns in American History. It came down to the wire with a shocking result.

The protests in the major cities prove there are a lot of people that don’t accept Donald Trump as their president.

Trump fans have been beaten, minorities bullied and Facebook friends have been sacrificed in the time since the election. Protests and arguments are rampant and people are throwing words like racist or white supremacists around way too easily.

Hopefully many Americans were able to put politics to the side and have a wonderful Thanksgiving meal. Were you able to have a nice meal or did it turn into world war three?

We want to know about your Thanksgiving holiday.

Did you and your family discuss politics on Thanksgiving?

Tell us how it went in the comments below. We would love to hear your stories.

Families all over America are making “no talking politics” pledges for Thanksgiving, but can we help ourselves?

In an ABC survey conducted online, 38% of the people that responded said they are stressed out about the ideas of talking politics on Thanksgiving.

That number is 100% in my household.

My dad thinks Trump is Satan. Literally, he thinks that we will be under marshall law and all liberals and minorities will be rounded up into internment camps within six months of Trump taking office.

My mother-in-law blocked me on Facebook for posting stories from WikiLeaks that exposed Hillary’s corruption.

I’m not even that big of a fan of Trump, but I see him as a monkey wrench in the corrupt political machine that is Washington D.C..

Somehow, I am a racist and I hate women and black people, Latinos and gay people all because I voted for Trump.

Somehow now, I support Satan and the soon imprisonment of anyone that isn’t white and conservative.

Well, Thanksgiving should be fun.

My dad and I enjoy arguing, but this election has really brought the worst out in both of us. I have yelled, he has yelled, and we both are where we started. Nothing has changed, except for my wife’s new rule.

“No political discussion on Thanksgiving”. She didn’t just ban it from dinner, but the whole day. Both of my parents and I had to sign a pledge to be civil during the holidays and honestly, it is a great idea.

This election has taken a lot out of all of us, and it is time we find a way to move on. Sometimes that just means ignoring it.

I still love my dad even though he thinks Trump is Satan, and he loves me even though he thinks I support Satan. I still love my mother-in-law even though she blocked me on Facebook.

Family is more important than politics. Washington can affect our lives, but only we have the power to make our lives better, and this Thanksgiving we are doing just that.

NO POLITICAL DISCUSSION!

We are not banning it; we are all agreeing that there are more important things to talk about.

Hopefully you will find a way to get past any troubles in your family and focus on the most important things in life. Each other.

President Obama sees a strong parallel between the first Thanksgiving–and the refugees pouring out of Muslim nations like Syria.

“Nearly four centuries after the Mayflower set sail, the world is still full of pilgrims: men and women who want nothing more than the chance for a safer, better future for themselves and their families,” Obama said on Thursday, in a special Thanksgiving version of his weekly address to the American public. “What makes America America is that we offer that chance.”

Over the past few weeks–especially since the November 13 terrorist attacks on Paris–the American people have begun to sour on the idea of taking refugees from predominately Muslim countries.

The controversy only escalated when key officials admitted it’s virtually impossible to sort out “good” refugees–the people Obama described–from “bad” ones–ISIS operatives posing as refugees to gain access to Western countries.

Since then, a bipartisan majority in the House of Representatives has voted for more stringent background checks on refugees. Obama has vowed to veto that bill should it pass the Senate–even though the majority of Americans seem to agree with Congress, not the White House.

Nevertheless, Obama ramped up a guilt offensive on Americans, urging them to show generosity to Muslim refugees:

“I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by loved ones and full of joy and gratitude,” Obama said. “And together, may we all play our own small part in the American story, and write a next chapter that future generations can be thankful for.”

He added: “I hope that you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving, surrounded by loved ones and full of joy and gratitude. And together, may we all play our own small part in the American story, and write a next chapter that future generations can be thankful for.”
