New Study Reveals What Conservative And Moderates Are Afraid Of
Politics have become this polarizing thing to such an extreme that people are now afraid to speak freely. I don't blame them. We are in this cancel culture where people are being fired for things they said years ago. For some reason, libs don't seem to understand that our culture has changed and we should be looking forward as opposed to punishing people for what were societal norms. But it's not just the past, people are presently concerned as well because the slightest offense could lead to the unemployment line.
"Nearly a third of employed Americans fear their political opinions could cost them their jobs or career opportunities.
A Cato Institute/YouGov national survey found that 62% of Americans say the current political climate prevents them from voicing their political convictions because "others might find them offensive." This is up from the survey taken in 2017 when 58% said they were afraid to share their own political beliefs.
Self-identified Republicans were the highest percentage to practice self-censorship at 77%, followed by independents at 59%, and 52% of Democrats.
Self-identified "strong liberals" were the only ideological group in the country who held a majority in feeling they could freely express themselves. The poll found that 58% of staunch liberals are not afraid to tell others their political beliefs. But even strong liberals are self-censoring themselves more these days — 42% in 2020 compared to 30% in 2017."
I think we can all see how "strong liberals" feel as they are currently attacking our cities across the nation without a clear cause, under the guise of peaceful protests. But as Americans, we all have the freedom of speech and therefore no one should feel threatened to express themselves. If we don't start speaking up we may very lose that right, as libs are making everything from gender to jokes taboo. We need to speak out before the libs find a way to enforce censorship moreso than they already do.
