The USA conservatives are in thrall to the bulging eyed bible waving Christian hardcore. That informs a lot of what they are about.
Correct, and the Far-Right Wing USA Conservatives are organized and working HARD to demonize everyone who isn't a "bulging eyed bible waving
Christian hardcore", as you (correctly) call them.
They are abhorrent and evil, liars and sensationalists. They have a LOT of listeners, too - which is why so many think that "Progressives" are
"Nazis", "socialists", "commies." SOOoooo UNTRUE.
We have organizations calling them out, though, such as Right Wing Watch. They are dangerous, notoriously so.
Thank you, and the others who have helped me delineate the term as used in the OP.
(Sorry for being Off Topic. I do think it's important for us all to understand what we mean by loaded terms such as "conservative", "liberal",
"progressive," "socialist." They are not easily understood, and when someone falls for stupid things like "Progressives are Communists and
Marxists", it makes matters MUCH WORSE.)
