I don’t think today’s American right wing conservatives have a proper understanding of liberal, or frankly even their own purported conservatism. To them it’s just an insult like communist, socialist, leftist, Stalinist, lesbian, homo and a bunch of racial slurs. It’s not a term with a real meaning to them, it’s just a catch all derogative for anyone they disagree with.The cons today use the term liberal and communist interchangeably because they are brainwashed morons.
Conservatism on the other hand is “whatever I want it to be today but usually anti anyone I don’t like.”
They are in effect treated as tribal monikers, like gang patches.
