The comment triggered several responses from both parties. “Because conservatism is uninspiring…in every way. It is suppression, stagnant, and misogynistic,” someone replied. “I am a conservative and am disgusted by today’s double standards. You’re not allowed to have your voice if you aren’t saying what the Left wants you to say. I choose morals and truth over the world’s ways,” commented another.
