Unfortunately, My uncle is also a pretty significant influence on my dad. Dads always been relatively conservative but in the last few years hes tacked hard to the right in a pretty disappointing and disgusting fashion. Right now I largely ignore the emails, though I do occasionally respond with a link debunking whatever was in it depending on how egregiously stupid it was.
