What dangerous, wrong or false things do Conservatives believe?

In this video, the comedian joked that conservatives believe that:

  • violence is something fun
  • dangerous people should get guns
  • all news is corrupt
  • everything is a conspiracy
  • all the votes for Biden were fake
  • Trump is above God
  • we need free speech so can hurt people's feelings
  • lockdowns should be stopped to get more deaths
  • Qanon is believable
  • global warming should be encouraged
  • no one should ever be allowed to immigrate anywhere

While this is, of course, tongue and cheek, what dangerous, wrong or false beliefs do many Conservatives (yes, including "alt-right" types) have that you oppose?

How confident are you that you know how Conservatives think?

I never even knew that those mental midget conservatives had the ability to think...

Dyl1983 Level 8 Feb 10, 2021

Nobody knows that now...you are not alone!

Most of the people I know are identify as Conservative. None of them think exactly alike and some are considerably different..

It's impossible to be comfortable with how conservatives think when they always get everything wrong. The very word, "conservative" gives some insight into their problem. Conservative means to be obstinate, unyielding, and unchanging. They want to hold on to the old ways even if the old ways are corrupt and broken beyond repair.

It would take thinking as misguided as a conservatism to even consider electing scum like Trump to say nothing of holding him up for worship or to have been chosen by some fucked-up divine providence. That goes for other conservative scum like McConnell, Jorden, Graham, Gohmert, King, Nunes, Miller, the list just goes on and on and on and on and...

They hate liberals because we want change. Everything needs to change and they'd rather burn down democracy then allow for anything to be changed. Their thinking is too stilted and dull to allow them to hold any power. Look what they did with it these last four years alone.

They fuck up everything.

The term "Conservative" started as the description pf those who wanted to "Conserve" thing as the currently stood.

The changing connotations of the word basically reflect how individuals view one another.

@Thirst2learn Except that it is broke -- something conservatives are too dim to understand. Just more proof they're too out of touch to be in charge.

@Thirst2learn Thank you for proving my point for me.

@Thirst2learn Once again, thank you. You've been very helpful. πŸ™‚

@Sgt_Spanky @Thirst2learn is a perfect example of a person who spouts off however in fact has little or no knowlwdge of the topic in question. He speaks for no one except himself.

"What is broke" is your opinion. I'm sure you are correct in some cases, and incorrect in others.

I know a lot of self-described conservatives and generally speaking, they're not really conservative. But, they're greedy.

BitFlipper Level 8 Feb 10, 2021

Exactly. Conservatives are about greed, selfishness, and wanting to keep everyone below and different from them in the pecking order firmly in their inferior place. They have no sense or concern about generosity, fairness, or integrity. It's all about winning and staying in power. Which is why they are more successful politically than liberals, who instead have to also care about being truthful, fair, consistent, etc. Those are handicaps when it comes to putting together voter coalitions and getting power. The conservative political tent is much smaller than the liberal one, contains fewer issues and coalitions to unite around, and much easier to keep the group united.

One of the most dangerous things that most of them appear to believe is simply their belief that might makes right, including the belief that those who are tolerant, respectful, and willing to compromise with those on the other side are WEAK and inferior to the warrior types that Trumper, fascist, reactionaries revere. This makes peaceful coexistence, pluralism, or multiculturalism in our society impossible. And I am getting fed up enough with how they are harming our government and culture in America that I support letting them secede or set up their own separate country of fascism, if that's what they seem to want. I will gladly move one state away from my current home if necessary to flee their idiotic politics.

Riots in Minnesota gangs in Illinois rednecks in NEBRASKA sharpshooters in S Dakota and blind rethuglicans rule in Missouri...
Maybe Madison Wisconsin can become a EcoSocialist Mecca ....Hawaii might invite humans to live atop dormant volcanoes but fascism = USA every year since 1776

Not sure your assertions define conservatives. They define an ultra right- wing radical nationalism spurred on in trumpism. Conservative purists don’t have That radical edge. Though obviously there is some overlap

My Dad was an all in for G.C. Wallace kind of Alabamian.
Trust me Conservatism is a faith based mental state of confusion and hate.

Perhaps some of the most "dangerous, wrong or false beliefs" that conservatives have are what they think of or attribute to liberals.

Both "sides" need to bear in mind that political views in America are more of a scattergram than a line. Democracy requires compromises based on finding common ground.

something else comment here - I"m not quite sure what this person was going for, though the video seemed humorous I guess. Anyway, to take the question seriously for a moment,

  • what bothers me in general is that conservatives seem to think that they are defending capitalism/free markets/property rights. This is terrifying. They are not doing this.
  • what bothers me more specifically is that conservatives seem to oppose action on climate change largely because such action will involve government regulations and carbon taxes and the conservatives seem to think these things are anti-capitalistic. In fact they are pro-capitalistic.

Anyway, those are pet points, but there they are.

What type of conservative are we talking about here? Fiscal conservatives, social ones, or both? I'm fiscally conservative, but not socially conservative though. No shortage of baseless stereotypes against right-leaning individuals these days, then again both political extremes excel at hurling said stereotypes at each other. Not all conservatives are extreme, just as sure as not all liberals are extreme. We've come to a point in America where the two political views no longer care about truly understanding the other side, it's become all about one's own views and rushing to conclude the other side is the villain.

Think?????

Secretguy Level 7 Feb 9, 2021

Precisely!

Conservatives cannot think. I refer you to @TheoryNumber3's comment.

The top part is interesting. It lists the stupid shit progressive left-polers FEEL about the 'alt-white' enemy, without any proof of thinking. : : : regurgitation, at best.

CNN: the religious channel of leftists. Pablum for the sheeple babes.

The White supremacists are an easy target because the are close to non-existent.

But the POC supremacists are everywhere, demanding special rights and privileges.

Time to buy a vowel

JacarC Level 8 Feb 17, 2021

Awww, did oo widdle nervies take a hit? Snowflake!

Listen up! The conservative party has bought most of the guns in America so do not give me the excuse that the alt-right is a minority! Thats garbage! At least the dems understand that the right wing is full of liars, grifters, cheaters, rip off artists and corporate thugs and Qanon garbage!

Conservative seem to be stuck way the hell in the past. No matter how hard you try you just can't bring them up-to-date.

Kojaksmom Level 8 Feb 16, 2021

True @Kojaksmom so called conservatives whine about so called liberals branding them whiners.... they are white dittohead members of the Rrrrssshhhaaah dingy Crazy GREEDY LIMPboss radio cult of liars the scumbag is dead and they still worship him in the past UNable to face reality of polar ice melt and polluted food causing early death for the deniers of the past lessons learned

The post certainly generated discussion. I voted 90% but only if the conservatives we're talking about are from the U.S., only watch fox, oann, newsmax and listen to conservative talk radio. This is the conservative group I have the most experience with.

Good job know thy enemies

Conservative = Juevenile
They show themselves in the foot though with the attack on Congress. Now conservatives are jumping off the boat before it sinks

2

Conservatives whole agenda is absolutely control over anybody and everything that they think belongs to them!!!

Conservatism has always been confused directly with Fascism which is the actual reality of conservative beliefs!!!

2

I voted Zero %. I've tried my whole life to figure out how they think, and am continually surprised at every turn. I got no idea.

skado Level 9 Feb 9, 2021

I assert that they are incapable of thinking.

I don’t self identify politically based on labels. I pursue my interests, as I see them, politically and economically. That being said, I think most people feel first and think second: the brain is the servant of the emotionsβ€” whether the topic is politics or β€œ spirituality” or anything else. Few have the self-discipline, insight and perspective to achieve rationality.

There's a difference between conservatives and fringe alt-right. That's like saying Josef Stalin was a liberal.

Don't know anyone this extreme. This is the same comedian who goes the other way with woke or libertism

The answers more often I find better in the middle grounds. These extreme conflicts don't get us working together. It's about divide and conquer by the wealthy and more for them, less for us.

Any such Conservatives against "Thought Think." is a reasonable concern. Sadly many on every 'side' don't realize they are being influenced by such.
People have been rightly worried about such since the 50's

From what I have read, seen and heard, they're all stupid as Rocks.
They believe that Sticks and Stones are their God.

That an egg is a child. That we will evolve stronger if we expose ourselves to toxicity. That those that can not compete should die off. That small government = responsible stewardship ( except for almost 20 years of nuclear testing, agent orange, Love Canal, DDT was sans government regulation). That one should be able to contaminate others. That the rich should become more so thru a lack of taxation & profit sharing.. That some folks are just not evolved as others, but any port in a storm. That gays are deviant but trafficing in children isn't. That my god should be your god or else. That shooting projectiles into animals is sport.
