By their own standards[edit]

Conservapedia maintains a list of "Examples of Conservative thinking versus Liberal thinking"img. Within the article it mentions:

  • If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn’t buy one.
    • If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.
  • If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat.
    • If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.
  • If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life.
    • If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.
These points essentially says:
  • If a conservative does not like (entity), they keep the idea to themselves
    • If a liberal does not like (entity), they want to push that idea onto everyone

Therefore whoever is trying to push the ideas such as banning same-sex marriage, banning abortion and forcing classroom prayer in public school by their own standard becomes a liberal.

  • If a conservative disagrees with a liberal, he ignores them and carries on with his life.
    • If a liberal disagrees with a conservative, he will argue.
By Instances of the "instistence of last-wordism"[1] by the administrators on Conservapedia, especially Andrew Schlafly, we established that the administrators involved in such arguments are deemed liberals by their own standards
