That is perhaps the quality of liberals that I find most irritating out of my long list of liberal irritations.
If you don’t believe in man-made climate change, an endless string of Big Government regulations, and taxpayer funded gender reassignment surgery for nine year olds, then you are an evil person who should be subjected to compulsory sensitivity training and banned from Facebook for life.
So much for diversity and supposed liberal open-mindedness.
Your liberal Aunt will fly off the handle in a rage in the middle of Thanksgiving dinner if you happen to mention you voted for Donald Trump.
Liberals will shut you down with discussion-ending, ad hominem charges of racism, sexism, homophobia the moment you utter an opinion that used to be considered just traditional common sense.
Left-wingers live in a different world from you, me and the rest of normal Middle America — a world where they never have to interact with normal Americans. They still haven’t met a single person who voted for Donald Trump. So, of course it was the Russians.
Could you imagine a Prius driving, vegan practicing, Bernie Sanders voter choosing to take a vacation to see the Daytona 500, or go on a big game hunt in Montana, or witness the reenactment of the Confederate victory at Manassas Battlefield?
Of course not. And little Ms. Occupy Wall Street would happily lecture you as to why. And why you are literally Hitler for even suggesting such a thing.
Conservative travelers, on the other hand, tend to be much more open-minded.
We kind of have to be.
Our values come under attack every time we watch a movie, turn on the news, or attempt to simply catch last night’s score on ESPN.
We’re used to it. We have to be secure enough in our beliefs to absorb the continual bullying and barrage on our values spewed by American culture, media, and Sports Center anchors.
There is a reason why only liberals get called delicate “snowflakes.”
That’s why, unlike liberals, conservatives are more than willing to explore the great cities of our country — many of them bastions of liberal lifestyles and politics.
Conservative travelers recognize that there is so much to learn, see, taste and enjoy across this great country of ours. We may not want to live there, but we’re open-minded enough to recognize that even the most Left Wing of places in America can make for a fun-filled weekend getaway.
If you agree, then this countdown is for you: How a conservative traveler can have fun and survive a visit to America’s 8 most crazy liberal cities.
