Conservatives Under Attack

|

A Polarized Nation: Liberals have dominated America and clash with religious conservatives with increasing intensity that began with the 2016 presidential election

Trumpism started it all

Tucker Carlson faces backlash for supporting ex-President Trump, with CNN being the first to criticize him. He’s been ridiculed and harassed in public, even in restaurants.

Likewise, her press secretary and avid supporter, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, along with those who support him, faced similar situations.

In 2022, Jennifer Lawrence, star of Hunger Games, revealed her strained relationship with her conservative family and shared her “recurring nightmares” involving conservative Fox News host Tucker Carlson.

Interestingly, she did not experience such nightmares with her mentor, convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein.

Since 2015, America has become polarized over the issue of abortion, same-sex marriage, and LGBTQ rights, which conservatives are against. Hence the backlash that can be traced during Trump’s presidency in 2016.

Widespread division over ideologies

The 2016 and 2021 elections have divided families. Friends unfriended each other over politics. It also inspired a new cancel culture, a mix of social justice and political ideology.

For example, conservative Catholic student Nick Sandmann was accused of racism, and another teenager was banned from school for wearing a MAGA hat associated with Trump.

“Woke Warriors” attacked actor Chris Pratt and Kevin Sorbo said he’s ‘blacklisted by Hollywood for being a religious conservative.

Likewise, veteran actor James Woods was suspended from Twitter for his anti-liberal meme and canceled in social media for his conservative opinions.

For years, left-liberal pundits tried to crucify clinical psychologist Jordan Peterson, but his followers just kept on growing.

Peterson is perhaps the most popular conservative pundit. Millions follow his lectures that promote personal responsibility and conservative values based on Biblical morals.

He is also anti-abortion and has frowned upon same-sex marriage, gender identity, and the use of “outlandish gender pronouns.”

In 2023, the College of Psychologists of Ontario warned of a potential suspension medical license suspension for his public views.

Social media inspires more division against conservatives

Twitter is heavily criticized for its left-liberal bias that billionaire Elon Musk wanted to buy the company to protect “free speech.”

For so long, conservative voices have been silenced by social media giants Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and even vendors like Amazon.

Trump’s presidency and all those who support his conservative stand have increasingly faced criticism. Hence, new phrases like Trumpism and cancel culture.

Attacks on prominent conservatives by leftists

2024: Kansas Chief Harrison Butker

Three-time Super Bowl Champion Football Kicker Harrison Butker is a conservative Catholic who faced backlash for his speech in 2024 at Benedictine College.

In his speech, Butker praised his wife for choosing motherhood over her career and inspired graduates to start their families as well.

He also pointed at the “dangerous ideologies,” particularly the gender narrative, abortion, and priests misleading their flock. He was critical of President Biden’s progressive liberal leadership and the far-left ideas that are destroying the nation.

Mainstream media like the Guardian called it “misogynistic speech.” Time Magazine described it as a “sexist, bigoted speech.”

MSNBC’s talking points echoed the negative comments and backlash but failed to mention the positives. Likewise, CNN highlighted the bad reception instead of the overwhelming positive response.

2023: Pro-Life Kristan Hawkins unhinged

Kristan Hawkins, president of Students for Life, a pro-life group, is constantly faced with rude students cussing her for her moral stand on abortion. Recently, the attack has been pronounced. A student burned a banner that had her face on it.

In 2023, protesters swarmed a pro-life event at Virginia Commonwealth University, where Hawkins was a guest. The angry student mob hurled insults and disrupted the peaceful event.

Left-leaning media BBC, in an article, frames Hawkins with the title “She helped kill Roe v. Wade – now she wants to end abortion in America.” Other students label her “transphobic, racist, fascist, and ignorant.”

2023: Pundit Ben Shapiro banned from DePaul University

In 2023, Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) Vice Chairman John Minster said that DePaul University’s school administrators are once again censoring conservatives by barring conservative speaker Ben Shapiro from its campus.

Some students label Shapiro’s conservative outlet “right extremists.” according to The Daily Wire.

Incidentally, although DePaul University is a Catholic school, it embraces liberal ideologies that are anti-Biblical. One of its mascots is called “Blue Demon,” which embodies athletic prowess, particularly in basketball.

2022: Ben Carson High School renamed

The Benjamin Carson High School of Science and Medicine in Detroit plans to drop Carson’s name and rename it Crockett High School of Science and Medicine.

Dr. Carson is the epitome of the American dream. Only in our country could a poor boy from the inner city grow up to be a world-renowned neurosurgeon, presidential candidate, and Cabinet secretary. He personifies the very promise of America,” said former staff for Dr. Carson at the U.S. DHUD.

2022: Elon Musk buys Twitter, enraging the left

Billionaire Elon Musk may not be a conservative but wants to balance the two sides. After buying Twitter in 2022, mainstream media quickly found fault in him.

Left-Liberal Holywood celebrities quit Twitter or at least plan to, apparently because Musk would now be allowing “right-conservative tweets,” which, for them, are harmful to society.

The Good Place actress Jameela Jamil quit Twitter and said in a now-deleted tweet, “I fear this free speech bid is going to help this hell platform reach its final form of totally lawless hate, bigotry, and misogyny.”

Musk was called “ruthless” when he said abled employees should return to work (physically) or resign. Democrat Senator Warren noted that Elon’s purchase of Twitter is “dangerous for our democracy.”

2022: Twitter suspends (again) conservative commentator

2021: Conservative psychologist Dr. Jordan Peterson smeared

Clinical psychologist and professor Jordan Peterson is a controversial right-wing figure known for his YouTube lectures that emphasize individualism, personal growth, and traditional values.

In a wave of cancel culture, a Jordan Peterson meme resembled Marvel’s supervillain Red Skull bears. The character is a “super-Nazi.” He called out the effort to cancel him and said it was an unfair and absurd comparison.

The mainstream media have not been good to him as well. But despite efforts to cancel him, Peterson presents scientific data that detractors find difficult to argue with.

2021: Big Tech kills Parler in one day

After declaring Biden the 46th President-elect in 2021, five prominent conservative figures Atty. Powell, Gen. Flynn, Dr. Watkins, former Mayor Giuliani, and Trump were suspended from social media, accused of spreading dangerous misinformation on January 8, 2021.
