I will say again that I will never be a Conservative but I regret having EVER considered myself an American Liberal. Call me a Socialist if you want, or an Anarchist, but don’t associate me with the psychotic stooges called American Liberals.
Here is ANOTHER former Liberal like me expressing their disgust with what clueless, uninformed Americans have fundamentally transformed Liberalism into. The link to the whole item is below, but here are some excerpts from her piece:
” … I want to share with you, from the liberal bastion of Northern California, that I am officially tired of the type of people who have surrounded me my entire life. In the wake of Trump’s election, I am experiencing ‘tribe fatigue.’ I’m not tired of The Other, Detestable Tribe. I’m tired of my own.
“I was raised a secular liberal. My college professors were secular liberals. During my journalism phase, my newspaper colleagues were secular liberals. My law school professors and peers were – in the vast majority – secular liberals. Almost everyone at my corporate law firm was a secular liberal. My California neighbors and friends are secular liberals, as are my colleagues. My mother, siblings, and their spouses are all secular liberals.
“By all rights, I should be a member in good standing of their tribe, ‘liking’ their Facebook posts and joining their candlelight vigils against the evil Trump Administration. But November 8 and its aftermath revealed to me that I am just so tired of these people. I can’t be like them, and I don’t want my kids turning into them.
“I am tired of their undisguised contempt for tens of millions of Americans, with no effort to temper their response to the election with humility or empathy.
“I am tired of their unexamined snobbery and condescension.
“I am tired of their name-calling and virtue-signaling as signs of supposedly high intelligence.
“I am tired of their trendiness, jumping on every left-liberal bandwagon that comes along (transgender activism, anyone?) and then acting like anyone not on board is an idiot/hater.
“I am tired of watching them raise clueless kids who go off to college and within months are convinced they live in a rapey, racist patriarchy; ‘Make America Great Again’ is hate speech; and Black Lives Matter agitators are their brothers-in-arms against White Privilege. If my kids are like that at nineteen, I’ll feel I’ve seriously failed them as a parent.
“I am tired of being bored and exasperated by everybody. I feel like I have read this book a thousand times, and there are no surprises in it. Down with Trump! Trans Lives Matter! Climate deniers are destroying the planet! No cake, we’re gluten-free!”
So many of us have come to feel the same way! American Liberals have driven away so many of us but as long as they can pretend that winning California means Hillary should be president these perpetually unstable adolescents will go on whining and screaming and alienating even more people.
Some of us former Liberals stop where I am, content to leave that label behind but not embracing Conservatism. Many others – with many more to come, I’m sure – get driven all the way to becoming Conservatives and I can honestly say that the American Left deserves ALL of the credit for that.
