Wow. It’s pretty incredible how you completely misinterpreted virtually the entire article. I think your reading through a conservative lens is causing the delusions with which you seem to be experiencing. Please reread the article without your liberal-hating (“leftist” distorting) goggles and you might actually be able to comprehend it. I’ll give you a nudge in the right direction. There’s absolutely nothing in the article that is demeaning nor derogatory towards conservatives. If you perceive being maligned, that will just be your “supercharged conservative fragility” the author mentions. It’s not a mischaracterization. Your first comment is proof of its existence.
