Have you ever noticed that, as a conservative, the moment you deviate from the prevailing conservative talking points, you are accused of being weak? Or of trying to appear woke? Or of seeking to impress the left? Or of caving in to pressure?
Could it be that, instead, you have the courage to buck the tide and be true to your convictions, regardless of the flak?
To be sure, there are some people who are chameleons, changing convictions like some lizards change colors, always wanting to fit in. Better to be liked, they think, than to stand for what is right.
And there are those who do want to appear enlightened, to demonstrate to the left that they, too, are thinking, caring people, not like those bigoted, mean-spirited, narrow-minded, right-wingers. “Just watch how thoughtful I am!”
But there are plenty of others who have no desire to appear woke or to impress the left when they differ with their conservative colleagues and friends. In fact, impressing the left is the last thing on their minds.
Think about it for a moment...
