Of course I remember that time. It is a conservative ideal to treat people as individuals, always has been. It was Obama who earned the moniker, The Fragile One from me because he and his sycophants couldn't deal with criticism and would lash out at anyone and everyone who dared to speak in anything less than glowing terms about him. It is the liberals now who are engaging in the cancel culture, who seek to totally destroy anyone who voices a non PC thought. It's just what they do.Self-professed Conservatives are the ones who function in groupthink.You need to take the conservative approach and look at people as individuals instead of members of groups. There are a lot of people who don't disagree with everything you say, but you'll never know if you only see them as members of groups.
Just look how these people are attempting to cancel anyone (on their own side BTW) who has even a whisper of criticism for the current chosen God, Trump.
They did the same thing during the Bush II Administration.
You are old enough to remember that time, right?
