Best approach to "I'm not into politics" Americans?

Seems to be a very common response to politics discussions when I am out and about.

What do DUers see as the best response to people with this attitude?





Basically, the DUmmy wants to know how to better pester normal people trying to go about their day



Here's a suggestion, DUmmy:

a certain percentage of DU is depressed and has other mental issues.

I talk to a lot of people and unless I know them and their political viewpoints I never bring up politics. Dems are shallow and believe they’re intelligent, so I can see where they have convinced themselves that someone wants to engage with them. Truth is these people have figured out that Marcus IM is a kook and wants nothing to do with him.

The problem with that is that people who don't do politics don't know any real issues, other than what media fixates on.

Sounds like the dump monkeys, they are fixated on MSM lies and disinformation. And they refuse to listen to any other opinions. :thatsright:

Start with 'men can be women and women can be men'.

That will convince them.

In that same vein, I always thought that demanding perfect strangers use your chosen pronouns when not addressing you was a great conversation starter.  :naughty:

Lately, I hear that telling that same perfect stranger that you'd prefer to be in the forest proximate to a bear than in proximity to said perfect stranger is another way to hit things off perfectly. :Grizzle Grizzle:

I'd introduce them to the Democrat Underground website and be sure (this is important) to make sure that they know that the cream of the crop, the best of the best, and the most intelligent people in the dem party are active at DU.

If you do hook them up with DU, be sure that you refer them to some of the older posts. Like those with Blackie the Ghost Chicken and those discussing how some of you astrally travel to other planes. It will let them know that you're all down to earth and not kooks like those silly rethugs who think that there's only two genders.

A Prius is so yesterday. Tell them you're a full on EV owner, THAT'LL surely get their attention.
Liberals disgust me. (Now I don't have to remember to put it on each post).

Because only the left goes searching for that which is not there in a desperate attempt to be offended about something.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

And you need to teach them how to turn the magazines around in the checkout line and to put on cnn and hide the remote in a waiting room.

Catch them on the way out of the grocery store. They know that issue.

Maybe try realizing that, "I'm not into politics," is code for, "I don't want to talk about it! Leave me alone!"
