A one-time "social justice" warrior got read out of teh movement and attacked but found the people who would listen to him and befriend him were conservatives.

Say the wrong thing or associate with the wrong person, and the left will lose you. It seems today’s conservatives are more moderate than today’s liberals.

Quote
Recently, I went to have a beer with one of my friends from my former life as a social justice crusader. He’s one of the few left-leaning friends I have left since I was mobbed and shamed out of my lefty, social justice community for “toxic behavior” on Twitter (in a straight-up Justine Sacco-style event). He’s a great guy, and he’s still friends with my old friends, so when we meet, it’s a secretive thing.

As I was starting to tally the people I have lost touch with, another thought occurred to me: I probably have more conservative friends than liberal friends now. For a lifelong “bleeding heart” liberal, this is quite the unexpected life development. I decided to tweet something to that effect.

I tweeted: “Since I was mobbed out of my social justice community, I’ve found that conservatives are more kind, forgiving, and open-minded people than my old crew. I’ve found friendship and acceptance despite disagreement. I can’t get in trouble anymore for saying so—so I’m saying so.”

My Twitter timeline “blew up,” as they say, and it was liked and shared more than 5,000 times.

The one thing they all had in common was that they cherished the principle of free speech. Modern conservatives and exiled liberals cherish free speech more than ever because they share the experience of being silenced in the name of social justice.

This is why right-wing groups have forged unlikely alliances with deplatformed lefties—like the Heritage Foundation are sponsoring talks by feminist scholars who have been attacked by the trans lobby. Free speech must prevail.

Even in our more intense disagreements (abortion, rights, trans rights, guns) my conservative friends have never aggressively lashed out at me, deplatformed me, unpersoned me, or tried to ruin my livelihood. They understand how important forgiveness and redemption will be if we are ever going to move on from these divisive times.


Progressives lack compassion and tolerance. Their self-aggrandizement is all that matters.

I have a couple of friends on the old board even though they're very liberal and I don't agree w/them on much of anything-other than the Orioles.But I was trashed by the rest as being a fascist even though I hold enough liberal views to make me pretty much ineligible to land on any conservative ticket.If the far left ever gets control of the Supreme Court, the First Amendment is toast.

I sort of miss them. Why are they afraid of debate?

I'd love to see their defending the Green New Deal and the other wackjob things their side is saying.And the outright racism on the left.

But I still miss them.I enjoyed the arguments.I figure I won some of those and lost some.They are smart even if wrong, and they made me use my brain a little.

i'm sure that they are now greatly embarrassed about a few things. Mueller has nothing, the dumbocrats are making complete fools out of themselves on a national level. That party has finally revealed themselves as racists, anti semitics and as communists.they've got to be embarrassed that they fell for the liberal BS.David duke and the KKK are now even out of the closet as supporting these radical dumbocrats....our former friends tried to claim that their party was no longer the party of the KKK although I debunked that for them, but now there is not even a debate at all that they are indeed the party of the KKK.....


The field of lowlife dumbocrats running for president in 2020 is so bad that most if not all of our former friends will be forced to either not vote or to vote for trump....AOC has ben caught stealing campaign money, the three racist rapists in Virginia and the dumbocrat mayor in SC that claimed she was a victim of a hate crime when someone painted her car..... Ofcourse the police inspected her car and it turned out to be just pollen...... I mean gosh.....

Then there was the hoopla from Some Black Lives Matter and other leftist dingbats over Jussie who was so cruelly attacked in Chicago by 2 Trump supporters. I knew that was a scam from the beginning when he claimed they said "this is Trump country". There AREN'T 2 Trump supporters IN Chicago!
