We see much of the same thing on here--conservatives who self-censor to kowtow to the powers that be out of fear of retribution.

Whilst the ramifications of that on here is inconsequential, however nationwide it is a huge problem...folks going along to get along. Outrageous and very damaging to the nation.

THey are ashamed. They should be.
I think not...they are just fearful of retribution.
I'm sure some are. Many are probably ashamed of the bucket of shit that is in the White house. But most are probably, like me, apprehensive to voice political views to those in close proximity. Especially given the right wing's habit of shooting people who they don't like, running over people they don't like, blowing up people they don't like, mailing bombs to people they don't like, making hit lists of the people they don't like....
Liberals can say the most horrible things about America's president with no fear of retribution.

I referred to ms. harris with the term 'kamel toe' on here in a thread that was then trashed. This board has made an embarassing and awkward turn to the left...why?

Kinda reminds me of how drudge turned against Trump overnight...no credible explanation for it but some think he is being blackmailed...as in he wanted to stay in the closet.
You think this board's mod staff leans left? You need counseling.

Ashamed of what? Being conservative?

That is absurd.
Yes. Given what the blob's GOP has done to the conservative movement.
I could say the same about what the Neo-liberals have done to civil rights and civil liberties.

The left has fielded corrupt and loathsome war monger after crap politician beholden to the big interests more than the folks they supposedly claim to over the past century, and the inequality has only grown. This is not just on the other party sister. The oligarchs invest in both parties.

So are you saying the technocrats and K street folks, the ones that are to blame for the point we are at, should decide what thoughts can be exchanged and what ideas can be shared?

I'm afraid I never thought you, of all people would be promoting such tyrannical ideas. . . . for shame. . . . for shame. . . . :nono:

Not sure what that jumbled mess of vowels and consonants was supposed to mean. But I'll elaborate on what the GOP has done to the conservative movement:

A POS scumbag President who has paid porn stars and prostitutes for sex is now endorsed by the religious right. Persons like Jerry Falwell Jr., Ralph Reed, et. al.
Remember when you guys used to be deficit hawks? Now you support a POS scumbag President who has run up $5 Trillion in debt in less than 4 years.

They don't want you to burn their house down and attack their children. Funny how only the right has to worry about that.

All true.

But that doesn't give you the right to silence or ignore the first Amendment.

What don't you get?

The moment you start doing that, because you don't like what another party has become? You have become tyrants, totalitarians, authoritarians.. .. . etc.

I can cite conservatives doing all of the above. However, you're really not worth the effort.
The signs in your yard, and your car with bumper stickers will not be harmed in a republican town. That is some pretty scary stuff.

That's easy to understand as leftists are by nature terrorists and will mob, attack and try to hurt you for disagreeing with them. They want you fired and your house burned down.

There are nutjobs of every political persuasion. That is why I said " But most are probably, like me, apprehensive to voice political views to those in close proximity."

Are you smoking crack again? Democrats are responsible for the vast majority of all murders in the US. Your black voting block alone accounts for over half of all murders, let alone the rest of you awful fucking left wing people.

Years ago, before she came down with a serious case of TDS, she used to be quite reasonable.
