I can’t believe this needs stating but actually I can: Opposing totalitarian trends on the left doesn’t make someone conservative. Huge shock, I know.

Yes. Being dubious of censorship, not supportive of left-sponsored oppression, being against “feminist” abuse toward and cruelty to sex workers doesn’t make me a conservative.
If it’s conservative to want billionaires to have their wealth redistributed, to support a job guarantee for everyone, to wish for reparations for slavery and Jim Crow, to mandate that corporate boards be 50% women, to support Medicare For All effective immediately, and to end all U.S. wars and close all overseas bases, then shit yeah, I guess I am a conservative.
