Okay, for anyone who might have been suspicious, yes, this article was actually about my relatives:
Why Your Kid is Not Invited to Your Cousin’s Wedding
Things I could have mentioned while you were on a rant, but didn’t, because it’s not like you listen anyway
In the article I used examples from both my side of the family (downstate Illinois, which in local vernacular is “not Chicagoland,” meaning some parts of “downstate” are actually at the northern border [back me up, Roy]) and Deb’s (“the southern end” of the county in which she was raised, which butts up against the Mason-Dixon Line). One cousin runs a racist/homophobic/Trumpist website and FB page (neither of which I shall link to); on the one hand, he has a severely disabled son who needs constant care, but OTOH his hate against all things “libtard” traces back to when “those people” were getting “generous” government aid while decent God-fearing (White) people like his family just got SSA disability.
