What are Conservative Righteousness or ConRight

And Conservative Contemptiuosness abbreviated as CC?


These are the Conservative twists on “Political Correctness.”

Early in the 1990s the term, “political correctness”, was used by conservatives to oppose what they perceived as the rise of the Left’s desire to eliminate exclusion of various identity groups based on language usage.
According to Sapir-Whorf, or the Whorfian, hypothesis, “our perception of reality is determined by our thought processes, which are influenced by the language we use”. This is a way that language can mould our reality and indoctrinate us to think about and respond to that reality. The words we use can also reveal and promote our biases.
Those who most strongly opposed the so-called “political correctness” view it as unnecessarily censorship and a restriction of freedom of speech. They believe that these cultural language guidelines lead to self-censorship and a curtailment on behaviour. They also feel that political correctness perceives offensive language where they believe none exists.
Others believe that being alerted to and aware of the use and meaning of certain labels can help to to curb hate speech and minimize exclusionary speech practices.
In general the debate concerning political correctness seems to revolve around language, names, and whose definitions of them will ultimately be accepted.

Now, in 2020, the terms “Conservative Contemptuousness” (C.C.) or “Conservative Righteousness” (ConRight) are being used to describe the attitude and behaviour deployed by far right Conservative’s to divert responsibility for any perceived bad behaviour, wrong doing or hypocrisy. The terms can be used as an adjectives or nouns, though the variety of uses is expanding. —

CC or ConRight contains a collection of fallacious excuses for one’s egregious behaviour, often around the notion that “someone else did the bad behaviour first so it cancels out my own bad behaviour“,
Or
Diverting responsibility from own’s own actions by changing the focus to someone else’s actions.
Or
A tit-for-tat argument claiming immunity because one’s rival also does the alleged bad behaviour.
Or
Over-simplifying an argument to make it easier to refute while ignoring the complexities.
Or
…add a list of commonly used fallacies here, but word them in a way the common man would understand.

The list goes on and can be categorized by a number of Logical Fallacies.


Because the CC or ConRight is often identified by those people who have studied and understand Logical Fallacies, the terms have an implication of ignorance toward those being accused of using CC/ConRight; Especially since the user seldom realizes that they are committing a fallacious act.


The term, “ConRight”, also includes the implication of a conman or sleazy salesman, with reference to President Donald Trump’s skill as a professional salesman (real estate) and his use of CC and ConRight arguments to easily sell his political ideas to a certain segment of the population.

Because many people are unaware of, or not educated about, Logical Fallacies, another intention of using the terms CC and ConRight is (Like the term Political Correctness) to, “Dumb down”, and lump together those terms.

If one hears a loyal follower of Mr. Trump say they support him because, “He says it like it is,” the critiquing come back would be,
“Another CC” (parroting a phrase and not thinking for one’s self) or
“ConRight” again (Implying another fallacy was used that the user was not aware of).

Tools for war against COVID-19

For five heroic months the staff (on the front lines) of, my friend, Maggie’s living facility have fought off COVID-19. In fear for their own, and their families, health and lives they cleaned and sanitized excrement, vomit, sneezes, uneaten food, beds, cloths… Somehow kept masks on disoriented, scared, angry and uncomfortable memory lost residents.

They reassured families and friends who were banned from seeing the people they love and care for. They went home, washed their cloths and showered daily before tending to their own families, always wondering if today was the day they may have been in contact with the dreaded disease.

Today was the day! COVID-19 has entered the facility.

Maggie has tested negative and has been moved to a different floor in the same building. But the fear is now reality. They had been successfully fighting the war, now they have to heal and protect the casualties.

They are brave, as brave as any solder in my heart. “I don’t want to work in a place like that”, I think to myself. “Should I offer help, volunteer, do something…?” I, too, am afraid for me, my family, my friend and you.

But, I will not allow fear to consume me.

What I can do is write on these pages, reminding the people who care about others enough to keep reading these thoughts even though they may be hard for them to hear, that COVID-19 is real and that the suffering of others is real.

  • We can literally and immediately
  • keep others from suffering
  • by enduring the inconvenience of
  • a little cloth mask
  • and some soap and water.
