According to a shocking new poll 62% of Americas are hiding their feelings and beliefs about politics because they don’t want to upset other people and they are afraid of the consequences of being unpopular or in being in the minority, and that trend is increasing since 2017.
Proving there is really Liberal Privilege, Cato, a public policy research organization dedicated to individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace, reported “Strong liberals stand out, however, as the only political group who feel they can express themselves.”
“Nearly a third (32%) of employed Americans say they personally are worried about missing out on career opportunities or losing their job if their political opinions became known,” Cato concluded.
A far-left liberal responds:
I'm not afraid hahaha
That's pretty obvious

Everyone else is afraid.
“A new Cato national survey finds that self‐censorship is on the rise in the United States. Nearly two-thirds—62%—of Americans say the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive. The share of Americans who self‐censor has risen several points since 2017 when 58% of Americans agreed with this statement,” Cato published Wednesday.
Cato’s researched showed:
“A startling 77% of Republicans are afraid to convey their political leanings, as opposed to 52% of Democrats.” “White Americans (64%) and nearly half of African Americans (49%) have political views they are afraid to share.”
Cancel Culture is a Democrat Driven concept: “50% of Strong Liberals Support Firing Trump Donors; 36% of Strong Conservatives Support Firing Biden Donors”
“This large number from across demographic groups suggests that withheld opinions may not simply be radical or fringe perspectives in the process of being socially marginalized. Instead many of these opinions may be shared by a large number of people. Opinions so widely shared are likely shaping how people think about salient policy issues and ultimately impacting how they vote. But if people feel they cannot discuss these important policy matters, such views will not have an opportunity to be scrutinized, understood, or reformed,” Cato reported.
