9 Symptoms of Conservaphobia
conservaphobia: noun. The fear of the American conservative political movement, often based on unfounded stereotypes and distortions.
You might be conservaphobic if:
  1. You've never really listened to Rush Limbaugh because you're already sure that you disagree with practically everything he's ever said.
  2. You refer to liberal Catholics, Protestants and Jews as "people of faith" but conservative Catholics, Protestants and Jews as the "religious right" or "radical religious right". (Maybe you have a thing for alliteration too.)
  3. You think all white Republicans are racists and all black Republicans are sellouts.
  4. You are a champion of first amendment rights except in public school classrooms and in front of abortion clinics.
  5. You're glad you're not a Republican because after all, they want to starve school children and senior citizens.
  6. You actually think that "liberal" and "progressive" are synonymous.
  7. In your opinion, a government donation to the poor is somehow more effective than yours would be.
  8. You only listen to and respect the views of "open-minded" people who think like you do.
  9. You blame society's problems on "religious fanatics" and "corporate greed", never on the irresponsible behavior of individuals.
