The left does understand conservatives and conservatives have no idea how.


Today, I commented on a story from a self-proclaimed conservative who assured his readers he’s just misunderstood. His point was that conservatives understand liberals but liberals do not understand conservatives. The writer didn’t mention, or seem to get, that liberals aren’t the majority of those not fond of the radical right. But that wasn’t the death of irony.

As part of his diatribe about the sheer wonderfulness of breaking down the US government and fabric of society, he assured us he was fighting for all of us. His biggest fight was for freedom, mostly freedom of speech, for everyone.

I disagreed. I pointed out that he and those he defends aren’t conserving anything and their actions have served only to tear apart and tear down.

He blocked me, deleting my comment from his article.

Freedom of speech.
