The last four years has just been idiots accusing everyone of being "hysterical" over and over until the exact things they predicted happen.

If there is a unifying theme to modern "conservatism" it's that they're so convinced of their ideologicals fantasies that anyone warning of the absolutely obvious consequences of their actions are immediately written off as a crazy socialist.

Your economic ideology disagrees with tax cuts for the wealthy and boot strap lifting contests for the poor? Socialist
You believe climate change is a thing that we should actually do anything actually useful about it? Socialist
Believe that public health experts should be listened to during a pandemic? Socialist


They've become entirely immune to any evidence that casts doubt on their fantasies and anyone who doesn't join into their mass delusion is a crazy Socialist.

they're really good at gaslighting. they're really good at deliberate misinformation. they are really good at outrage. and they are best at owning the libs. and self enrichment. basically the gist of the movement, plus the racism and xenophobia of course.

I got chewed out just for asking a group of people to define conservatism when asked if I was conservative or “a lib”. Apparently, you can’t even ask them to define the term. I refused to answer until they did. Nobody did.

I just got a letter from our minor hockey program giving parents the option to either comply with the new regulations or opt out of the season

Parents have until this Tuesday to decide on playing this season and will receive a full refund for dues. After that the window is closed

The kid gloves are off now for these idiots

It was a self administered purity test they were interested in, not a discussion on the finer points of political ideology.
I don’t recognize this form of “conservatism” was my point and was vocal about how I think the term has been coopted. I’m afraid I’m going to receive a ticket to some symposium.

The purist in me says everyone should have the right to choose to be vaccinated or not. That doesn't mean the choice to not be vaccinated should be free from consequence. For example, they should not be permitted entry into public spaces (they can create unvaccinated zones and mingle as they wish). If they become sick, they should still have access to treatment, but should there be a run on ventilators, their priority should become secondary to vaccinated individuals.

They shouldn't have a problem with this either, given that they think a little chicken soup and bed rest cures COVID-19 since it's nothing more than the flu 🙄

Strangely enough, Trump held a rally recently and actually told the crowd he got vaccinated and thought they should get vaccinated too. He got booed for that... I really don't understand the anti-vaxxers, but then again, most of them believe in lizard people, so there's no point in wasting time trying to understand them.
