#Conservative-Because Goes Viral Thanks to Millennial Ladies

In an ironic twist of fate, young women — a demographic group widely considered pivotal to Democrats’ electoral success and the liberal progressive movement in general — explained to the world why they are conservative, and launched a viral movement giving the reasons behind their ideas.

The conservative millennial women’s organization Future Female Leaders launched a Twitter hashtag explaining, “I’m a #ConservativeBecause,” and it took off on Sunday night into the wee hours of Monday morning. The tag caused liberal convulsions but inspired thousands of conservatives to explain why they believe what they believe.

Here is PJ Media’s list of the 25 best tweets explaining #ConservativeBecause.
