Dems fighting words

Since when did “liberal” become an insult? And why haven’t the Democrats also turned the word “conservative” into an insult? Sure, the obvious answer is that the Republicans have controlled the White House 24 of the past 36 years. And they’ve controlled Congress since 1994. But it’s somehow shameful to be a “liberal” but we should all aspire to be “conservative”? Why isn’t it the reverse? Or better yet, why don’t we all aspire to be libertarian?

    I think liberal became an insult in 1984, possibly as late as 1988

    I’m now going to use the words "social fascist" instead of conservative. See http://dictionary.reference
