Why stop at politics? There is always a doofus at the larger family gatherings who obsesses over what they perceive your interests are, but the other way. Sports, music, politics whatever. Avoid them, cut them off so that they will stop then and in future.
it must also be remembered that sometimes you will be that doofus…

No, I never would be. I never talk about politics in a social setting unless the other person specifically brings it up.
