I say do what Hraedon did: be so well read and make it so clear that you're the smartest person not only in the room but in the entire building that the next time someone DOES bring up their flawed political views, you spend the next hour relentlessly but dispassionately pulling them apart at the seams. Don't leave any room to weasel out; if they back down to a less-idiotic viewpoint, take the opportunity to, in essence, tree them, like a hunting dog. Allow them no refuge, don't let them say "well, it's just my OPINION" or similar stupid attempts to deflect reality's cruel barbs.

Crush them completely, and the best case scenario is that they'll begin to change their minds, and the worst case is they'll never want to talk about politics around you anymore.

You can choose your friends, but you can't choose your family or co-workers.

The trouble is that if McDohl's performance is less than perfect, it turns into a shouting match and he gets canned.

And even if everything goes swimmingly, everybody in the office will hate his ass for life.

For bonus points, do the above, but using only non-scientology books.

At this point, I give the hell up.

Not only am I being ridiculed for political choices, but now I'm being ridiculed for the things I say on here because my coworkers are looking at these forums.

File an HR report about harassment if it ever goes beyond simple discussion.  Nobody should be humiliated at their place of work.

Then... why'd you ask us for help?  Do you want to be bullied?

ugh.

Why doesn't anyone believe that being non-confrontational is the best fucking option?

Why ya'll gotta correct the world?

Because if it were easy to get along with other people, actual saints and gurus wouldn't be all that impressive?

Jesus, Dohl.  I wouldn't even show these forums to my coworkers when I worked at a video game company.

...okay that was probably in part because I was breaking nondisclosure all over the place, but mostly I just didn't want people to know what the hell I'm doing in my downtime.
