There are no "Conservatives!" We need to END that word!

Last edited Thu Nov 1, 2018, 07:09 PM - Edit history (1)

Why do we insist on continuing to use "conservative" when it is Donny Rotten's Cult? They are Radical Right Wingers.

The party of Lincoln, TR, and Ike is DEAD. Dead and gone.

Once and for all we gotta stop saying this word. Say Right Wing, or better yet, Radical Right Wingers.

6. Donny Rotten is an anarchist

Don't know what I want
But I know how to get it...

7. They should only be referred to as right-wingers.

A) because that's what they are.

And...

B) because it is a dirty word associated with extremism and terror.

Hang that term around their fucking necks.

9. This point is made emphatically in Rick Wilson's book

"Everything Trump Touches Dies" - I'm reading it now, and I am shocked to find it entertaining and enlightening in many ways. He's a never-Trumper and he barely relates to the Republican Party as it has morphed in the last 3 years. Wilson has many interesting things to say about (and to) Democrats. Recommended reading to curious and open-minded liberals on DU.



By the way LBM20 I also agree with you, and I've been calling them right-wingers and RWNJs (right-wing nut jobs) since I came on here 2 years ago.

12. I think that there are some, but they are currently estranged from the R party.

I don't use the term for Trump supporters or other radical RWers.

16. I've been saying this for years

They just hijacked the word. There is nothing at all conservative about today's Republicans. Not as the word is defined in English, anyway. It's different in Republicanese.
