Alone with my daughters Trumper boyfriend

He just started a rant about immigrants thinking I would say nothing back and I said that is all bullshit!

I am tired of his racist crap, if I was religious I would pray daily for her to break up. He has zero redeeming qualities and no one in family likes him including my grandkids which thankfully are in early 20's and not living with this guy and both progressive.

My daughter used to be a democrat then surrounded at work last 20 years by republicans and now this boyfriend of 6 years, ugh!

I am seldom around right wing people these days so it felt like Fox news in my face.

2. He comes across like a bully

Conversation started because I saw he put recycling in the trash, I said oh you don't recycle? He said "WE" don't do that or believe in it. Then went off on his rant.

I feel like my daughter has been brainwashed.

3. I have a couple of siblings that are like that.

No concern for anyone except for themselves. I know how you feel.

7. I've seen several cases lately, of formerly sane women who now buy into the BS a right wing

boyfriend/husband is peddling. I just don't get it. These are women who have a lot more going for them than the numb nuts they're listening to. And the crap they are falling for is so absurd and/or repugnant. I hope your daughter (and all the rest) eventually snap out of it. These loser men are tearing families apart. (Of course, my right wing sister managed to tear our family apart all on her own...)

5. you did the right thing standing up for yourself in your home

I would call him out for not respecting his girlfriend's mother in her own home. You have the right to set the boundaries in your home and if he doesn't respect family then he's deplorable beyond his politics and your daughter will hopefully see it then.

Your boundaries can include

1) Respect of your traditions and beliefs, which appear to include conserving and caring for the earth through cycling.

2) Being respectful of others regardless of their race.

3) Being respectful of persons immigrating into our country.

Don't give him an emotional reaction though. That's what he's hunting for.

9. Your right emotional reaction is what he wants

Talking to him is like walking on a mine field, simple question about nothing can set him off.

I am in my daughters home for a few days while visiting mom at senior home. I hadn't seen her in awhile because of covid and we all are vaccinated now. My grand daughters baby came late or daughter would be here. I am leaving to see my new great grandchild today.

So just one evening alone in house, I think daughter was worried he might say something stupid.

He has never been to my house out of state, she travels alone to visit friends and family because no one likes him. I keep hoping she will wake up.

And by the way my daughter has good paying job job, she rents place in her name only pays all bills. He has managed to let her support him last few years.

8. One of my wife's sisters

used to be a liberal, even attending Democratic party meetings with me. She had always been a liberal going back to when I first met her in high school.

Years later, she started attending church again and met her eventual husband. The guy is far to the right. The weird thing is, he's an immigration lawyer, which i find odd considering his views. He also drives a tesla, which I'm sure he sees as a status symbol rather than a help to the environment.

She is now hard core right wing which puts her at odds with her parents and my wife. Family gatherings are annoying, at least for me.
