I just got called a Socialist! (http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=132x8577529)

By my Father no less.

Some background: I had spent quite a bit of time educating he, my sister and BIL last November on voting for Obama. They did, all three of them, my Mother voted for McCain/Quitter.

At dinner tonight, he says that he regrets voting for Obama and wish he could have his vote back. Well, I began to nicely debate/argue with him over Health Insurance reform. He would not listen for more than a few seconds before he blew up. Ranting about President Obama being a socialist and he did'nt vote for this type of change etc...he literally called me a socialist for supporting the President now.

I took him to his computer to log in to Whitehosue.gov to show him the President's remarks concerning healthcare and also the disinformation...he watched for 5 seconds and lashed out at me that it was lies all lies! I asked where he was getting his info from, he said he can read and has eyes to watch television. He said I was brainwashed and this is like the book 1984 blah, blah. My Mom did not say a word until I was taking coffee cup back, and she said "I told you so". WTF? 6 months into his Presidency and you told me so? You knew this was gonna happen?

As I was leaving..he said for me tell my comrades hello from a dissenter.

I am heartbroken, to say the least. I teared up in the car...I am glad my girlfriend was not with me, she would have cursed a blue streak against my own Father.

I am at a loss. Just had to vent a little...I hope the economy turns around, if it does'nt my father may never forgive me.

:D

I mean honestly. Any time politics comes up at a family gathering - it ends in a fight. But at the end of it all, I kiss my mother good night and tell'er I love her even if she is a complete idiot when it comes to politics.

He cried in his car over a political argument?Saw that. I just assumed it was a dude until I hit that part. Went back and read it again thinking it was a lesbo but you can't ascertain the OPs gender. Either way...wuss.
6 months into his Presidency and you told me so? You knew this was gonna happen?Yes, we did.

The OP mentions a "girlfriend".

If the OP was a dyke, they probably would have used the term "partner", you know how PC they are about faggotry.

I am glad my girlfriend was not with me, she would have cursed a blue streak against my own Father.Needs to become:
I am glad my girlfriend was not with me, she would have bitch slapped me and been on her way.

Its true that the kid by supporting Obama is supporting socialism(though some argue with good reason theat obamacare is really fascism). BUT the mum by supporting the repugs is also supporting socialism- The HeathCare Industry was already heavily socialised (fascist???)and W went another huge step with prescriptions for the elderly.

We're still waiting for you to lie to us by telling us who you voted for.

And genius, the words with the little red dots under them when you post, those are telling you that you're an idiot.

True enough - EXCEPT that much of the support for Republicans vaporized when they started to pull that crap.

gotta disagree for the most part. 70% minimum of those here who call themselves conservative would have an absolute comeapart if the Constitution were once again enforced. The collection of trolls who follow me around this place are perfecdt examples.

I agree with the dad.

Too bad we don't know who dad is, and can't introduce the word, "moonbat" into dad's vocabulary. :D

Remembering Wellstone, is now in place he'd never thought he'd be in; no longer the oppsition.

Those on the Left don't know how to handle dissent from the quite majority, they're too use to being the one making the noise, not being its target. They thought they could play both rules after the election, bad that's just sad/ bad fantasy on their part.

The revolution it seems will be televised and the Moonbats don't like ... not one bit.
