Conservative Cognitive Dissonance

What must it like to believe one is part of both the mainstream majority and a persecuted minority? Is it like being a lawmaker who makes illegal laws? Or being an influential political force who is just a clownish entertainer? Perhaps it’s like being a person who fights tooth and nail to make sure that it is legal for any random jackass to easily obtain a wide variety of deadly weapons but refuses to acknowledge any responsibility for the consequences of their actions. Is it how a fetus is a person until money is involved? Or is it simply demanding that our society arm the people who teach our children despite believing them to be “thugs”?

Or does being a conservative mean that whenever you say Oceania has always been at war with Eastasia it becomes true?
