5. Unsubscribe from his posts

His nonsense won't show up in your newsfeed and you won't have to explain why you defriended him.

6. You know,I almost think it's time for sane people

to just start shunning these nuts.Unfriend him,let him know why first,and start treating these people like we treat other dangerous fanatics, we stay away from them.

8. Exactly correct

We don't need a dialogue with them. We don't need a national conversation, and we certainly don't need them at the table.

7. We have given them a free pass for 15 years

They won a few elections, and we shrunk from them. This emboldened them -- made them into the paper tiger bullies we see on this board and across the country. There is no debating with them. There is only building coalitions to smash their positions and impose the public good on them, whether they like it or not. Like any bullies who have been given a free pass, they strut about now arrogantly. It's time to show them that their free pass has well and truly been revoked.

9. Mute his posts. Go to Facebook...

Click on your name.

Click on the 'Friends' link under your name, slightly to the right.

Look for him in the list.

Hover your cursor over the checkmark/Friends box next to his name.

Scroll down the list that pops up and uncheck 'Show In News Feed.'

I had to do this with a gun nut/anti-Obama friend just before the election and fucking Facebook doesn't make it easy.

They will not know you have done this, unlike un-friending them.

10. Likewise, the News Feed is revealing who the gun nuts are. They are defensive too.

I've got Lefties posting far-right graphics like this:

11. Does your cousin have any children?

I wonder how he would feel if his child -- or a child close to him -- were gunned down in a mass shooting.

I would do as others here have said and unsubscribe to his posts. I had to do that to a bunch of RW family members and friends during the election, and looks like I'm going to have to to it again.
