They’re all anti-Trump and / or supportive of Obama/leftist policies
I would be horrified and humiliated if I ever made Salon‘s bestest conservatives evah list. Their list of conservatives worth following on Twitter consists almost exclusively of #NeverTrumpers but includes faux conservatives raking in big bucks as some lamestream media outlet’s token righty.
Some are hailed as supporting open borders, amnesty, ObamaCare, and other assorted regressive policies, others are held up as exemplars of “conservatism” because while they may support the Second Amendment, they hate Trump with a passion.
In other words, the only conservatives worth following on Twitter are anti-Trump and/or not conservative at all.
Liberals in shock over the the 2016 election were prescribed a heavy dose of reality. “Get out of your bubble,” the doctors note illegibly read.
It was a hard truth for the American left. They found out the U.S. was not as progressive as originally thought. Their steady diet of MSNBC and left-wing op-eds only reinforced biases and preconceived beliefs. The country’s actual, collective tilt wholly evaded them.
One recommended solution: Search out opposing points of view. Turn on Fox News every once in a while; follow more conservative voices on Twitter. This would be an honorable endeavor for liberals, if it didn’t expose them to pure lunacy on a regular basis.
With every right-wing follow added on Twitter, liberals inched closer to the likes of Mike Cernovich and Jack Posobiec appearing on their “who to follow” suggestions. A few brave liberals likely made the leap and added Cernvovich and Posobeic to their timeline, only to find their feeds polluted by offensive nonsense.
But what if we told you there are 25 conservatives actually worth following on Twitter? What if we said that there are conservatives that not only dislike President Trump, but also engage in a level of ideological introspection that has surpassed most liberals? Wouldn’t you have to check them out?
Here’s a sampling of these must-see “conservatives” on Twitter:
National populism is the vapid belief that you have the right to both modern standards of living & your grandfather's job & culture.

This is starting to just get pathetic tbh. Someone should collect all the threats he's made as POTUS with no followthru. Weak. Sad. Etc… https://t.co/dXhvdNRcJJ

Republican cannibalism: Trump spanks GOP legislators; Bannon threatens primaries vs those that don't act like trained seals; the base claps.

IQ test for Tillerson and the rest of the cabinet: how do you use the number 25 to change the number 45 into 46? This is a timed test.

Our president, who was championed as a brilliant economic mind, has no idea how debt, trade, or general economic concepts work. https://t.co/aUlofQsTda

The fact Donald Trump is not a serious person doesn't mean he doesn't pose serious threats to the country.

What's amazing is that Trump actually thinks that his illiberal attempt at forcing patriotism somehow makes HIM the patriot.

I was an early and avid opponent of a Trump candidacy and presidency, but all this sort of thing does is tick me off and make me support him all the more. If he’s making people who support open borders, amnesty, the AGW hoax, and ObamaCare crazy, he must be doing something right.DONATE
