FreeBeacon: How To Talk To Your Pansy Marxist Nephew At Thanksgiving

This is a guest column by Uncle Strickland (seemingly a long-time commenter over there), and it is awesome....GUEST COLUMN: How to Talk to Your Pansy Marxist Nephew at Thanksgiving It is worth a read. Really!

The reason I’m writing this is because my brother’s dumb kid likes to get chatty with me. I’ve never seen anyone bring so many printouts to the dinner table. His “talking points,” he says. Reminds me of my last divorce, all those friggin’ printouts. This kid, my nephew, will never admit to being a communist, it’s always this “moderate independent” crap. But his Facebook feed is full of Bernie Sandinista, if you know what I mean, and he recently tweeted some gibberish about riding the bus in Czechoslovakia and identifying as a “human being” instead of what he is, an American. He’s been a “student” at some Ivy League circlejerk for the better part of a decade. I think he’s 29, who the hell even cares? If he’s the future, this country’s digging its own grave and I’m glad I won’t be there when it finally kicks the bucket. When I was his age, I was flying Ranger battalions into Grenada in ’83. I spent Thanksgiving there, and believe me, we didn’t have any damn printouts. We had a war, son.

Funny stuff. Good stuff. I will be using some of it in a few hours!
