Maybe conservatives/republicans wouldn’t constantly feel so persecuted if they stopped doing everything in their power to run the country into the ground, purely out of spite, because their policies have proven for the past 30 years to be failures and have the exact opposite effect on peoples lives they claim. And maybe if they stopped doing everything in their power to ignore science/reality/fact and obstructing change away from those failed policies, only to blame everyone but themselves for the problems they’ve caused and continue to cause, people would stop treating conservatives like ignorant, cavemen constantly looking for witches to burn. That is all modern (past 30 years) conservatism is…modern salem witch trials. Blind, religious devotion to their ideals and when they are wrong, it isn’t because of their ideals but because of the witches tricked them…again. There’s a reason Bush forgot the old adage of “fool me once”. It’s because conservatives have been fooled and have been fooling themselves for 30+ years and still don’t get it. I get this is meant to be humorous, but all it does is reflect the problem with partisan politics in general, and conservatives specifically. It just shows their constant, closed-minded, hypocrisy and head-in-the-sand ignorance that no science/fact/reality can penetrate. Everyone is always wrong or to blame but them.
