Conservatoid (conservative + -oid)

“Conservatoid” is a derogatory term for a conservative.
” A Conservatoid is a fellow who proposes Conservative programs, and supports them with sloppy Liberal-type reasoning” was posted on the newsgroup wash.politics on November 13, 2014. “I know; let’s make up a word for the type of person Rush (Limbaugh—ed.) is: Masculinazi! Conservatoid!” was printed in the Tallahassee (FL) Democrat on April 22, 1995. “Conservatoids bound to go into cybershock over brave new words” was printed in the Northwest Herald (Woodstock, IL) on December 29, 1996. “I use ‘conservatoid,’ bcs Greek suffix ‘oid’ =‘similar to’ or ‘emulating,’ like ‘hemorrhoid’” was posted on X/Twitter by Наталья Паршина on December 31, 2018.

Ladies and Gentlemen, look at the referenced post closely. You see
above, the work of a Conservatoid. A Conservatoid is a fellow who
proposes Conservative programs, and supports them with sloppy
Liberal-type reasoning. Rush and other Conservatoids will succeed in
destroying Conservatism for generations to come, unless their efforts
to disgrace the Conservative movement are halted expeditiously.

Aahhhh, more conservatoid fact denial.

I would love to give the old heave-ho to “liberaloid,” which Time magazine tested a few weeks ago.

@dansinker I’ve been having an evil fantasy of police turning the fire houses on all those conservatoids with teabags.

Because Root is a conservatoid statist who sides with the state when it comes to the police state and racial profiling.

A thought:  These creatures are not “conservatives” by any proper definition.  They do not want to “conserve” anything; they are nihilists & told us so in ‘16:  “We want to burn it all down!”  I use the term “conservatoid” (”-oid” suffix meaning “like, resembling”).  I know…

I use the term “conservatoid”—the Greek “oid” meaning “similar to” or “emulating,” as in, “androids” are robots that resemble humans, or “opioids” are artificial chemicals that act like opiates.
I find it a useful solution that’s accurate, but not an insult per se.

Respectfully, “conservative” should be in scare quotes.
These creatures are not conservatives.
Conservatives are generally wrong, but the real ones are not always evil or stupid.
(I use “conservatoid,” bcs Greek suffix “oid” =“similar to” or “emulating,” like “hemorrhoid.”)

#conservatoid is a good name for the parasite walking in the dead corpse of the old tory party.

Ok conservatoid.

When the facts are against you,
shoot the messengers.
Yes, we know the conservatoid script pretty well by now, thank you for reminding us.
If you have any money, short the market;
it’s going down.
The question isn’t “whether,” just “when,” “how much,” and “for how long?”

The president himself is actually an unusually pronounced (everything)-phobe part of the story. To filter out ordinary ignorants of his 48%ish support and to see a theoretical electoral potential of conservatoid extremists here, I recommend Orban’s %s: https://novinky.cz/domaci/clanek/nejduveryhodnejsi-osobnosti-politiky-je-pro-cechy-caputova-vystridala-zemana-40307630

Martin is another #Reptoid #Conservatoid who thinks that #Populism and strong #Nationalism , along with #Xenophobic exclusion of anyone not #Christian is the only way any country will ever work. That #Liberalism is a disease, despite the richest countries being #Socialistic.

John Solomon- conservatoid dirty trickster and Fox News contributor.

Am I alone in thinking “conservatoid” is a bad insult for a leftist to use given other uses of -oid? I’m guessing people think it sounds robotic as opposed to being used on women and people with down syndrome after being created as names to describe races as different species…

This is such a dumb take. America has 50 states, various territories, voting overseas in 750 bases abroad and embassies, and 6 time zones.
Taiwan is the size of Maryland. Give me a fucking break conservatoid
