    1.
    commitment to traditional values and ideas with opposition to change or innovation.
    "proponents of theological conservatism"


    Conservative ideology has morphed over the years so sticking with a specific platform is silly. Hell, the GOP's 'conservative' platform has changed just within the last couple of years. The central goal of all conservatives is to preserve traditional values. With an ever-changing world, especially in the age of the internet and globalism, conservatives of all types are more fearful than they have been in a long time which leads to extremist actions.


    Fascism and neo Nazi are not conservative.
    Fascists and Nazis embrace social conservatism, authoritarianism, and oppose egalitarianism. Seems far-right conservative to me.

    The Republicans started it when going after Bill Clinton.
    Turn around then became fair play for the far leftists, masquerading as Democrats, to go after every single Republican president since...
    Just my observations as a former Democrat.

    Liberals aren't the enemy, but far leftists are the nation's number #1 enemy. Sad that some can't see that the Democrat Party has been hijacked by the latter.
    For the left not liking Fox News, they sure do watch enough of it...

Democrats/liberals have their share of low-lifes/egotists for sure. None of them are on this level of insane.
