This is so true.
Having a 17 yr old daughter I can’t even have a political discussion in her presence. They have been so completely brainwashed. Unabashedly.
I’d go so far as to say it’d be more functional and developmental to having a higher priority on seperation of party and state vs seperation of church and state. And I’m not religious at all.
The colleges are unreal. My daughter graduated 2 years ago. She leans left but not completely. She stood up to a professor spouting left wing BS and the guy gave her a shit grade, it cost her magna cum laude on her GPA. Had to settle for summa cum laude.
My approach is similar to TMacks.. ask questions that illuminate the hypocrisy. For instance asking her if she thinks me or her mom is a racist, obviously she knows we aren't and she knows the values we instituted and stand for. And the fact that me and my black neighbors are really good friends LOL. And they love Trump, go figure. I just remind her that by the time she's 45 she'll be a conservative. She doesn't believe me... but it's true.
