A Disturbing Trend Among Conservatives

Most of you who follow my page know that I am a fairly moderate, but right-leaning conservative with a Libertarian stance on many issues. However, even though I normally side with conservatives, I have always said that I am not above calling out those same conservatives when I believe they have screwed up.

Looking back at the last couple of years, it would be difficult to honestly say that Democrats are the party of free speech. They might make this claim, but the truth is, they only support free speech if it aligns with their "progressive" agenda on topics such as Feminism, Islam, LGBTQ rights, abortion, law enforcement, and Black Lives Matter.

If someone speaks out in support of any of their "approved" issues and receives any kind of backlash, even if the claim is unsubstantiated, liberals are immediately up in arms. They immediately begin demanding that the company be boycotted, or the offending employee be fired, even if the alleged offensive act did not take place while they were on the clock. They picket, protest, scream, yell, and plaster the offender's name and picture all over social media; doing their best to completely ruin their life.
