No I actually consider myself an extreme conservative when it comes to constitutional issues. Example: the Patriot Act was the most egregious revocation of our 4th amendment rights ever put into law. Most rightys think I'm crazy for saying that.

This guy had a giant USA flag, Glock decal, "Don't Tread On Me," "We The People," "Muslims Go Home" stickers on his rear window; along with some other less significant stickers signaling to the world he was a REAL MAN. So the guy is unknowingly (or knowingly) participating in a double standard here. He's clearly interested upholding the moral spirit of the founding articles of the country he loves so dearly. Yet, at the same time... trampling on religious freedoms of Muslims, potentially even American born, legal US Citizen Muslims.

So I ask, what's this all about? If you claim to be a die hard conservative why are there such harsh feelings against anyone that isn't Christian? Why would you want to censor speech, even if its not favorable to your political party? Why do conservatives allow this behavior within their party?
All I can tell you is we are going to continue to **** on the Muslims until they separate church and state. The church is not the state, and if it was, there would not be any religious freedom. So really the truth here is instead of there being a double standard, you just have your head up your ***.

So those stickers don't represent only "conservative" ideals
Thanks.

Nobody's perfect, but conservatives are WAY less hypocritical than progressives. We don't race bait, we leave other people alone to live their lives even if we disagree with them, as long as they don't affect anyone else; and the fact is, the religious tenets of islam go against the founding ideals of the United States. As long as they were keeping those bits to themselves, folks left them alone. But now muslims are openly advocating for sharia law, so no, they have to go. That has nothing to do with their beliefs, merely their behavior and how it affects others.

Jim Crow, sharia, same **** different day.

You really couldn't be more obvious about fishing for religious bigotry so you can virtue signal.

Boy, are you on drugs?

So a guy has;
1) Giant USA flag decal
2) Glock decal,
3) Don't Tread On Me decal
4) We The People decal
5) Muslims Go Home decal

And somehow you drove away with the impression this had something to do with Christians? I don't see anything about religion in any of those bumper stickers and everything about free speech. As for Muslims go home I think a certain percent of the population still remembers 9/11 are sensitive to that just as Dems are sensitive to the southern border, after all they shout ICE go home.

As for the real man part have to looked at some of these Beta Males??????

Genuine questions.

Was this guy blocking up the highway?
Was he pulling people from their cars and assaulting them?
Was he setting fires to any cars or buildings?
Was he throwing cans filled with concrete at people?
Was he asking others to burn this bitch down?
Was he holding a severed head of any politician?
Was he asking others when was the last time a politician was assassinated?
Was he asking others to find members of any political party and create a crowd to tell them that they are not welcome here?

Oh wait, you assumed that this guy minding his own business was a conservative, so obviously he wasn't being violent or asking others to be.

Apparently we're supposed to read into "less significant stickers" as anything he'll need to add to his argument later...

Pickup trucks decorated with those window stickers represent less than 1% of conservatives. Much like the Hell's Angles represent less than 1% of all motorcycle riders.
