claiming it’s conservatism, not liberalism, under threat

i think liberalism is too, but that’s perhaps beside the point

This does conservatism far too much credit. It's entirely the liberal fantasy of the reasonable, considered conservative political opponent that has barely ever really existed. What the right is now is what real world conservatism has always actually been, just more overt.
