Can we just state the obvious? Conservatives are horrible human beings committed to inflicting suffering and misery on humanity?

Quote
The Wyoming Republican Party is seeking to kill a bill working its way through the state Legislature proposing to raise the state's legal marriage age to 16, arguing that putting "arbitrary" limits on child marriage interferes with parental rights and religious liberty.
Quote
Other states, like Tennessee, have actually sought to go in the opposite direction, with Republicans there seeking last year to eliminate any limits on marriage entirely until public outrage forced them to reverse course.

Quote
The right's war on different and trans people took center stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference as Daily Wire host Michael Knowles openly called for the public eradication of transgenderism. During his speech on Saturday, Knowles told the crowd, "For the good of society… transgenderism must be eradicated from public life entirely -- the whole preposterous ideology, at every level."

so like,.. i'm not a fan of the motivation of this boycott but the idea of boycotting something is a thing i'm okay with.  that said,..  i just want to take a moment to point of the hypocrisy that conservatives will continue to decry "cancel culture" while also absolutely embracing cancel culture.

A couple of weeks ago, I was watching video of people fighting on the street in Washington. A group of Trump guys surrounded an Antifa kid and started pounding the living shame out of him. It was three against one, at least. Jumping a guy like that is dishonorable obviously. It's not how white men fight. Yet suddenly I found myself rooting for the mob against the man, hoping they'd hit him harder, kill him. I really wanted them to hurt the kid. I could taste it. Then somewhere deep in my brain, an alarm went off: this isn't good for me. I'm becoming something I don't want to be. The Antifa creep is a human being. Much as I despise what he says and does, much as I'm sure I'd hate him personally if I knew him, I shouldn't gloat over his suffering. I should be bothered by it. I should remember that somewhere somebody probably loves this kid, and would be crushed if he was killed. If I don't care about those things, if I reduce people to their politics, how am I better than he is?

The formal travel notice states, "Florida is openly hostile toward African Americans, people of color and LGBTQ+ individuals. Before traveling to Florida, please understand that the state of Florida devalues and marginalizes the contributions of, and the challenges faced by African Americans and other communities of color."

i was not home schooled but i grew up in a conservative household that was just as dedicated to child abuses as they describe here.   was a difficult read for me tbh.

"The use of the rod is for the purpose of breaking the child's will," stated the handout that they bent over together in the church. "One way to tell if this has happened is to see if they can look you in the eyes after being disciplined and ask for forgiveness."

This was even worse...

Spoiler for Hidden:
The Pearls advocate hitting children with tree branches, belts and other "instruments of love" to instill obedience, and recommend that toddlers who take slowly to potty training be washed outdoors with cold water from a garden hose. Their book advocates "training sessions" in which infants, as soon as they are old enough to crawl, are placed near a desired object and repeatedly struck with a switch if they disobey commands not to touch it.<br><br>
