    It always occurred to me that nowadays there's nobody politically neutral anymore (or never was). As I swear anyone who says they are neutral is either a liberal cuck or conservative faggot in denial. I get that those people may not associating themselves with the SJWs or Alt-Right, but still... Like for myself, I thought I was neutral, but I realized I'm bit too conservative to say that.

    And furthermore, if you happen to make a non-bias political opinion or statement, people seem to see you as the opposite side because it triggers them in some way lol.
    Is nobody truly politically neutral?

    Centrist is a polite word for cuck or idiot. It's usually just virtue signalling from Conservative, Inc. though.

    Edit: Besides, party platforms have so many stances, the odds of agreeing with every one of them to the letter is unlikely.

    centrism. not centralism. and it's largely a strategic question. refer to this quote:

    "Standing in the middle of the road is very dangerous; you get knocked down by the traffic from both sides." - Margaret Thatcher

    Fixed the title.

    It seems like it's so.

    The political spectrum is just about how many things you agree with someone on. Theoretically two centrists could be completely at odds with each other.

    It seems to pretty much mean anything at anytime, but it usually gets trotted out by politicians or self-described intellectuals when they're trying to act above-it-all.
