If you are a conservative, you do not have to look very far to find out what is wrong with being a conservative these days. Simply turn on a news channel or open up a newspaper and your eyes will be filled with all that is wrong with being a conservative. While much of this article is written with intended sarcasm, it’s actually scary that media outlets have become a repository for liberal mandates.
A quick scroll yesterday through the LA Times and NY Times editorials gives you insight into a lot of the apparent issues of conservatives. For example, the LA Times was quick to lay blame on conservatives for failing to act already on new gun control measures “with the blood barely dry” they say.
If you jump over to The NY Times, you’ll quickly see that there’s a huge difference in those who do act out in violence from the right and the left. Those who are acting because of President Trump and conservatives target minorities while those acting out because of liberal views target anyone. Apparently, it’s much better to act out violently as a liberal because you are equal opportunity towards all the special categories and groups.
Or maybe you prefer to get your life improvement from CNN rather than the newspapers. Over at CNN, I was told how there’s an issue with the conservative approach to the economy and lending for housing. Apparently, since Democrats run their local economies in the ground where some folks cannot afford housing, we should legislate that banks MUST loan these people money to buy a house. As a conservative, this goes against any economic policy I’ve ever dreamed of so therefore I have a problem.
At MSNBC, I learned that I’m a horrible person because I believe in the rule of law. It’s absolutely horrible that I would support the arrest and deportation of illegal immigrants, you know those folks who came here by breaking a law. Families were separated in the ICE operations, which is much more important than breaking a law. I guess I’m horrible too for wishing that a murderer or a rapist is locked up because it separates them from their family?
You’ll never know the enlightening experience I had after reading some articles over at Vox and some other outlets to realize that I should feel ashamed for enjoying taking an airplane to a nice place on vacation. I’m also a horrible person because I enjoy a nice steak or hamburger occasionally. Those airplane emissions and cow farts are going to absolutely destroy our planet and I’m such a horrible person for enjoying them.
If you are conservative like I am, you are no doubt as relieved as I am that these “self help” sites are nothing more than liberal garbage. The news media is no longer a place for reporting the facts, but rather reporting on how they believe everyone should live. If you disagree with their life guidance, you’re a horrible person.
I don’t know about you, but I guess I’m pretty happy being a horrible American. I have no intentions to quit eating beef, stop flying, stop supporting laws and law enforcement, support open borders, or give away everything I’ve worked hard for to someone else. I’m all about self improvement, but the lefts way of improvement sure seems more like torture and destruction.
