A Thanksgiving lifeline for Trump haters

If you hate Donald Trump and aren’t articulate enough to express your thoughts during this year’s Thanksgiving feast, thanks to the magic of the Internet there is hope for you.

You can still ruin this national holiday by spreading ignorant leftist bile by means of talking points provided in real-time by Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ), Daniel Greenfield reports.

“After Trump’s win, some lefties are feeling insecure about their debating skills. So the traditional ‘Guide to arguing with conservative family members at the Thanksgiving table’ is being bolstered with live texting support,” he writes.

Here’s SURJ’s pitch from its website:

This Thanksgiving, SURJ is offering two ways to help support white folks in having tough conversations with other white folks — conversations that are necessary if we want to break silence about race in this country:

Thanksgiving Discussion Guide: These conversations are tricky, and often get “in the weeds” fast. We’ve put together a discussion guide that gives some more substantial talking points for those tough conversations, as well as some questions you can ask to elicit feedback and avoid conversational shut-downs. Click here for the discussion guide!

SURJ Holiday Hotline: When you get stuck during Thanksgiving conversations, SURJ has you covered. Simply text SOS (with no quotation marks!) to 82623, and we’ll send you some key talking points that tend to come up in these tough conversations. If you get *really* stuck, we’ll even hop on the phone with you for a short 1:1 coaching call. It’s vital for white people to break white silence about the danger of Trump’s presidency — we we’ll make sure you have the tools you need to have those conversations over the holidays!

Oh boy.

And here is how SURJ describes itself:

Through community organizing, mobilizing and education, SURJ moves white people to act as part of a multi-racial majority for justice with passion and accountability.

We work to connect people across the country while supporting and collaborating with local and national racial justice organizing efforts. SURJ provides a space to build relationships, skills and political analysis to act for change.

We envision a society where we struggle together with love, for justice, human dignity and a sustainable world.

So it’s a bunch of guilt-ridden, politically correct Caucasians. How original.
