That touches on one of the major problems exacerbating the change we are experiencing. How do you define conservative? Racism, bigotry, misogyny, militarism, xenophobia and willful ignorance? Holding onto power at all costs? That is the self definition of conservatism now. That should not exist.

I don’t think you define conservatism that way. By all traditional standards the leadership of the Democratic Party is conservative economically, politically, and socially. I’m not suggesting that it is in anyway effective but it’s only actions are to defend what was the status quo to which they desperately want to return.

That includes acceptance of white privilege and dominance as long as they can claim there’s some opportunity for POC. Joe Biden is their dream from Christmas past. Sadly Barrack Obama was their savior but they rejected him and are now facing damnation.
