56. My family would be embarrassed by anyone who wanted to
talk politics at a family gathering. We do occasionally talk politics, in smaller groups, but not for family events.

I wonder if there is a way to point out the purpose of the day, FAMILY, in a way that would shut the politics down without causing more offense.

I was raised on the rule that politics and religion were not appropriate topics for social conversation. I'd probably respond to attempts to start political conversations by pointing that out.

Good luck.
