Apparently porn stars can't be conservatives


I just watched Charlie Kirk, Dan Bongino, Rick Scott, Kat Timpf, speak about freedom, censorship, how inclusive the 'movement' is," she stated. "And then they had me thrown out of the Turning Point USA conference. The Republican Party is broken."

Not sure she had to attend the gathering to figure that out, but better late than never.

While many right-wingers cheered the ban on Love, an unlikely opposition force led by Federalist co-founder and frequent Fox News guest Ben Domenech also emerged: "I'm disappointed that TPUSA kicked out Brandi Love for no reason whatsoever. She's a Florida conservative businesswoman who loves America," he tweeted. "The right has an opportunity to be the big tent party. Don't be a bunch of prudes."

Big tent party 🤭

Takes a real "brave" person to go after gender confused kids :rolleyes:
The article only has a few pages from the book, but based on what I can see in there, I actually don't mind any of the big messages in that book. You can be an elephant and sing well - what's wrong with that message? Some of it is heavy handed, like "most of the animals felt like heaven", that's a tangential message that's not really particularly healthy. I'm sure I could pick on it more if I had more pages, but on the surface it comes off ok in my view.

While I'm relying on the Daily Mail to provide an accurate analysis of the book since there aren't any excerpts showing the struggles the elephant has identifying as a bird I'm inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt (I know, I know). Remember this is from the person who has this as her pinned tweet

controversial topic

At its heart conservatism is about preserving the status quo of people who are the 'chosen people'.

If you're wealthy invariably white with capital then you want to preserve your standing.

If that means putting out wedge issues like abortion to rally your cause then so be it.

Its also about exerting power on those deemed 'lesser'... the whole thing about govt. being strong on the weak, weak on the strong.

The only important thing is to have YOUR place in the economy, keep it run and keep feeding it victims to run it.

Its also about controlling mindshare. I see a general need to keep people stupid, uneducated ("I love the poorly educated") so that people are easy to manipulate.

Keep people away from any meaningful education and whatever limited compulsory education they have to have, dont make them analyse past issues.

Did slavery occur? We dont care. What happened in Iraq and Afghanistan? Doesnt matter.

Conservatism is exclusionary. Its fear of the 'other' and sense that conservatism is a superior ideology to any other.

Rally people around nationalism. Question science. In fact, mix it with evangelism.

My question would be what progress has conservatism and/or evangelism brought as a positive to the world?

Covid has brought up a mirror to governments state and national. Why do some govts. fail so spectacularly at this current crisis? I wonder.
