See, that's the problem; conservatives will be quick to cite IQ baselines as a useful metric when considering the general measure of intelligence among demographic groups, but dismiss IQ as an invalid assessment - with flawed modes of testing, besides - when weighing the intelligence trends of conservatives vs. progressives.

Inconsistent use of facts about IQ doesn't seem like a social conservative trait. They're usually more about end results. What you're describing seems more like a garden variety liberal trait.

"Conservatism is a political and social philosophy promoting traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilization. The central tenets of conservatism include tradition, human imperfection, organic society, hierarchy and authority and property rights. Conservatives seek to preserve a range of institutions such as monarchy, religion, parliamentary government and property rights with the aim of emphasizing social stability and continuity while the more extreme elements called reactionaries oppose modernism and seek a return to "the way things were"."

Conservatives are currently focusing on balanced, sane progress, not destructive to the society.

Liberals seem to be split into two camps:

  • 'economic' who prioritize corporations over citizens, making corporate profits be the absolute priority at cost of society meltdown. They achieve their goals through underhanded behind-the-scenes tactics, often involving criminal activity.
  • 'progressive' who put absolute priority into rights of a couple select minorities, going as far as shaming the general populace for not being of these minorities, establishing discriminatory rights against the populace and restricting genera liberties like freedom of speech. They also engage in guerrilla tactics of bullying dissenters, and reject any and all forms of criticism.

Facing these three options, with two of them bundled into one, most of the society takes the obvious choice.

I think the powers that be were caught off guard with how much damage 9-11 and the Bush administration did to their control of America, so they doubled down when they put Obama into power, and that did even more damage.

There it is. You have it with this post - the propensity of conservatives toward playing apologist for ethnic nationalists (even to the point of genocide against the Other), corporatists/fascists, and of fracturing the general welfare of the people for the purpose of toe-ing the party line even to the point of shitting on the ideals of their ideological heroes i.e. T.Roosevelt's conservationist policies, Jefferson's views on private labor, or Jackson's disapproval of money married to politics. Where there isn't apparent hypocrisy, there is instead monstrosity, but I'm inclined to believe that much of it is not deliberate - so many conservatives comprise the working poor, yet they opt to rail against the scratch against their incomes that are taxes in favor of the arterial slice that is wage stagnation, a problem that their voted members are specifically responsible for. Obviously adhering to conformity and political identity takes the center stage here, and the tendency to support feelgood policies like supporting cops who kill black people while otherwise despising the arms of the state, or supporting wars that kill brown people while attempting to kill policies that are actually helping other Americans definitely has more to do with fascist/ethno-nationalist identity than most political scientists seem willing to acknowledge.
But it needs to be understood that the trend toward ethno-nationalism derives largely from personal insulation (that is, having little-to-no economic or geographic mobility); with few alternative perspectives allowed into one's clique by mandate of homogeneity, people unintentionally form their own communal echo-chambers not out of spite, but because our brains are much more optimized for social activity than intellectual activity. If we want to get people out of this insular mess, then we need to improve the lives of the lowest economic classes somehow.

You display the propensity of the leftist to lump all your enemies into one as if they were one person, in order to then argue that the opinions of single individuals applies to the whole population, to come up with apparent contradictions and hypocrisies.

It isn't - my point was that you're belting out a hell of a lot of hot air over the lesser of two financial drains. Further, taxes theoretically at least helps the general welfare of society, but wage stagnation shunts money to the oligarchs and does little else.

No they don't. Taxes are taxes - there's no "teoretical" reason for them to help anyone except the people who levy them.

In reality they just fund the political elite. The political elite then throws some bones back to the society to make it appear they're working for the "common man", but if you run the numbers, the working class ends up at a net loss, while the very poor get handed a free meal in exchange for votes, and the very rich get handed a get out of jail ticket for playing along.

That's the real reason for wage stagnation and the growing gulf between the rich and the poor: the government allows and facilitates the rich to exploit the rest in order to then pretend they're helping the poor by taking the money back from the rich. Anyone in the middle who's still making or doing something valuable gets the short stick and ends up paying.

Wealth inequality increases over time. The wealthiest families get better at increasing their wealth generation by generation. Social programs keep the poor immobile. It's a natural selection thing. Equality is impossible, there's no reason to try.

Person A makes sweeping generalizations
Person B makes sweeping generalizations in pointing out person A is making sweeping generalizations
You point out that B is doing the same as A, which is somehow supposed to mean B is in the wrong while A isn't, even though you have to agree with B on that point in order to say that. In other words, B making sweeping generalizations has no significance for the case.

B points this out, you reply:

Because higher education is a propaganda vehicle for liberal ideology and mass media and evangelical christianity (the education of the proles) are propaganda vehicles for socially conservative ideology.

But as liberalism gets more simplified and begins to resemble bigotry in structure and conservatism gets too complex for plebs to wrap their heads around, this trend might either reverse or even itself out.

Just realize most of those "conservatives" are neocons who think israel is our friend and must be protected and think obama was the worst president in history (because of policies from the bush era)

>pulling BS to hide the fact he's an idiotic conservative

The fact is pretty simple. Liberals are more open to education, information and freedom.

Conservatives are stuck in the past, blatantly claiming that religions resolve everything and that praying heals cancer and that a lot of things are "unamerican" if not christian.

"Conservative ideas" are information. Liberals are open to information. If "new ideas" yield sour results, they may fall back to conservative ideas, resulting in people with some conservative views, without actually being dedicated conservatives/right-wingers. What's old is new again.

I mean as in "Conservative ideas are not information", they are myths and legends based on faith and belief. Not tangible or with proper validity for the real world.

But good try trying to skewing what the point was to fit your agenda.
