I’ve not run up against this problem personally, but we’ve all seen the regressives’ attempts to hijack the holidays:
Supposedly progressives are super-informed and Love Science. Indeed, that’s the main “political” argument they’re actually arguing for.

It doesn’t really make sense, does it? They’re anxious because they’re going to a Thanksgiving dinner where they won’t have an Automatic Affirmation Clap Circle applauding their poses and posturings, but instead might be asked things like “Where are you getting that claim from?”
