Apparently political conservatives are fair game when it comes to insults. One can type anything into social media, that the mother of a conservative sucks the cocks of Nazi pigs, and no one bats an eye. The conservative prime minister of this country can be labelled Mad Monk, disparaging his state of mental health and his religious beliefs, and that's just fine with everyone.
Imagine applying similar insults to any other cultural or political group or individual. In this country you can find yourself with a criminal record for calling someone a boring stereotypical lesbian, or a professional aborigine, yet no one is ever charged for insulting a conservative. Every champagne socialist in the land leaps to their feet if one of their own is vilified in even the most subtle manner, yet they are silent when folks they disagree with are insulted in the most extreme ways, even when physical violence is suggested.
I wonder, does the champagne socialist ideal, that every human is equally valid, has the right to be treated with respect, only apply to the people they choose? Are conservatives not people? Do they not have families, feelings, a culture, a set of beliefs that are important to them? Why are they excluded from the protection that is demanded for every other political or cultural group? Perhaps it's because conservatives don't call on the four horseman of the sensitivity apocalypse, feeling offended, feeling indignant, feeling upset and feeling unable to cope? Perhaps, in short, they don't bleat the correct buzz words in response to insult?
Conservatives represent a large percentage of our political electorate, they get voted into government on occasion, so they must do. I wonder why they are fair game?
