TUESDAY'S GREGALOGUE: KEEPING TO YOURSELF

So I received a delightful email today, From Holly in Galesburg, Illinois.

Here it is..

I'm on an airplane. I sit next to a liberal windbag who preaches in my ear for the whole flight, assuming I agree with him. I keep my trap shut, fearing for my life. I'm in a book store, and have to listen to an employee and her friend shameless and loudly discuss their liberal beliefs. I'm twice in a public library book store and each time have to listen to people trumpet their liberal beliefs as if everyone else within earshot naturally agrees with them. Greg, I'm 45 years old and can NEVER, not ONCE, recall conservatives publicly discussing their beliefs so unabashedly. What gives?"

That's quite a question Holly, one I'm more than familiar with - although I have to wonder, what the hell is a public library bookstore?

That can't be real.

But look, the answer is simple: If you look at all mass media and every facet of pop culture from music to tv, the shared assumptions are liberal. Shared assumptions breed comfort. Comfort over time, breeds arrogance.

This isn't just based on research, but also my own life. I spent many years in publishing, and the vast majority of my coworkers were libs. When they first caught Red Eye, they were shocked at my non-liberal beliefs.

That's because my political opinions rarely came up in conversation. Well, unless I was drunk. Which was frequent.

The reality is, most conservatives I know don't' talk about their beliefs, because they aren't looking for approval. They aren't interested in impressing anyone but their loved ones.

And so they keep their views to themselves, happily knowing it's a liberal's job to remind us of our unconscious racism. And so instead they discuss sports, the weather, or in my case, chimney sweep hummels from the 1950's. I'm having one removed Friday.
