Default What Triggers Conservatives the Most?

Opening comments are riddled with poking fun at Conservatives but keep listening. All he does is mostly quote from studies on the brain, the tongue, and sense of smell.
I found it fascinating and found myself wondering about my own attributes in those areas. (Like I have a highly refined sense of smell ).

the thing is many people are more complex.
People have crossed over from left to right and vise-versa.
when i was in my 20's i turned from left to mostly right and now both sides "disgust" me on some issues but I agree with both sides on other issues.

also "conservative" and "liberal" are historically fluid terms.

But the main thing that bugs me about Chenk's (mis)characterization of conservatives is that he acts as if the left/liberals don't have an authoritarian bent. or don't bow to authorities.
many of them bow and scrap at "science" as god,
and the current social trend/thought as god,
that gov't should be mamma god and expect everyone else to obey them or else.
Stalin and Moa were "liberals".
The left wants to force people to give up money or else,
stop driving cars or else.. etc etc... all based on their belief that the proper authority figures have told them of safety and survival of the individual and group.

So the Chenk ..as usual... has a Huge BLIND spot as he chuckles at those "frightened" "easily disgusted" conservatives. look in the mirror dude.

fear "climate change will kill us all." the high priest of science have foreseen it.
Fear of Christians in politics and education
Fear and loathing of capitalism and "the rich"...
to name a few...

politicians play on the fears of all sides.

Well said. I am guessing you meant Mao.

Back in the day Laikoff's "Don't Think of an Elephant" was the Progressive bible for winning hearts and minds by changing the so-called framing of issues for the fearful people clinging to God and guns. But after Trump defeated the designated next President the Resistance endorsing any tactic against Trump was born. After two plus years of failure to depose Trump the target of the Resistance expands to Trump supporters. "Conservatives" who are adjudged mentally ill and morally deficient therefore in classic Soviet style unfit to have a voice in politics.

Good points.

I myself am conservative in many ways. Yet I voted Democrat in the last 3 Presidential elections. I think a lot of this shows more who will follow a fad or a crowd easier. Not a thing I can truthfully say I have done much in my life.
Nature gives us some direction -safety in numbers I guess is one. Critical thinking however interferes with much of instincts somewhat in modern life.
Anyway as I said it is a fascinating study and results. I like any thing that makes me "wonder"

you wouldn't know a real conservative if you were hit in the head with one.

Since I am neither conservative nor liberal in the whole, and I have a thicker skin than may, apparently, little actually triggers me except blindness and stupidity. When I say stupidity, I mean someone who knows better, but still does the wrong thing. Someone who never knew in the first place is ignorant.

By blindness, I mean willful blindness. Refusing to see the possibility of something else existing, tunnel vision. Refusing to actually research beyond what someone has told you, regardless of facts laid out in front of you.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez existing.

The hate boners that some have for her are a wonder to behold, and might require a doctor 'cause it's been more than four hours.

Another display of your primitive ignorance, a school yard taunt with no hint of reason.

Right, pointing out the ignorance she proudly boasts about and he followers ignore in preference to a romantic vision of a new Venezuela in the US is "hate".
