I think more importantly than that, some of us represent opinions that aren’t publishable among polite company. I’ve had to greatly reduce my rhetoric online since my wife keeps getting promoted.
Forget the fact that I agree with approximately half the population on a lot of things, those opinions get short shrift even on Fox News. I spend a significant portion of my free time keeping up with what’s really going on. Researching defensive gun usage to support my conversations with anti gunners, actually looking for the number of “family” shelters that don’t take boys over 12 near me, what percentage of Planned Parenthood offices in my town offer anything but abortions. the fact that men are twice as likely to be murdered than women, three times more likely to be attacked. 4 out of 5 of the fastest growing careers are 80% or more dominated by women. Young boys are getting in trouble in school for not acting like young girls, told they have violent tendencies and held to lower standards in school work because they just aren’t as bright as girls at 6 years old.
Election after election shows again and again that the US is generally a conservative country with liberal hotspots. It also shows that liberals in Virginia are conservatives in California.
I look at what people think about people like me and I shudder. If they mean what they say every white conservative should fear for their lives, my concern is you keep saying things like that, someone will eventually do something. The progressives in this country have decided that they are the final arbiters of who can stand for what. They’ve decided all black people believe X, and if you don’t believe it, then you must not be a real black person. Who can back that ideology? All women believe Y, and if you don’t then you are internalizing your gender hate.
Mainstream liberal thought in America is that if you are a certain race or gender there is only one right way to think. If you don’t think that way then you are evil or misguided. This is not hidden, it’s not some secret, Rachel Maddow, Chris Matthews, or whatever superior being that happens to be on MSNBC will tell you on Prime Time TV. And white males, and females, are usually guilty of something, if not everything, by their mere existence.
Regardless of anything else on the progressive platform, the pigeon holing of people by color, creed, and gender means I have to resist them. Maybe this doesn’t come through as well overseas, but democrats are carving up America into separate but equal all over again. Colleges are building multi million dollar buildings that non-minorities aren’t welcome in, or men aren’t welcome in, or only black or Hispanic people are welcome in. Yeah, I’ll fight that all day long even if I bought into 99% of everything else they represent.
So yeah, I look for them to be pulling something, and I’ll give a conservative a break. Because the end game for some of these people is much scarier than global warming or tax evasion or God knows what.
