Here is an excellent essay on the cowardice of modern Conservatives and especially the Church from a Catholic high school teacher who got "canceled" for calling Black Lives Matter terrorists.
From the essay by Timothy J. Gordon:
In the parlance of the Western film, we got a fight comin’, and it’s comin’ today. Stand and fight. Our institutions—the academy, news and entertainment media, our politics, our economy, and even the Church—are so thoroughly infiltrated that the Jacobins, once camouflaged but now demasked, may desecrate the tombs of the holy and topple statues of Christendom’s paragons in the bright noon light.
The terrorists, wolves among sheep, control the responses, and even the moral imaginations, of the fold: accordingly, one gets fired for opposing terrorism. Fat, comfortable suburbanites have for too long preferred to sacrifice their champions rather than jeopardize their comfort. But my firing—and, I fear, more like it—must be the clarion call to a new era: the era of the renewal of Christendom.
Thus far, we’ve been cultural losers, in every venue. Complacency and security have become our deadliest foes—far deadlier than even the human agents of the Deceiver who toil, night and day, to capture even the small, overlooked corners of the cultural landscape that their dominion currently lacks.
Gordon cites Socrates, who says there is an age-old collusion between the sheep and the wolves against the sheepdog, the one who protects. So often the sheep hate the dog more than the wolves who would eat them.
He's right. There is a kind of suicidal desire to appease the enemy to the point where those who would fight are considered the problem.
And that is true in the Conservative population, and in Christ's holy Church as well. Everyone wants friendship with the world more than friendship with God.
The Book of Revelation warns that the worst of all churches is the church of Laodecia because "you are neither hot nor cold. As you are neither hot nor cold I will spew you from my mouth." That is the side we are fighting on today; lukewarm and apathetic.
That is why Make America Great Again is such a terrifying slogan to so many these days; it's the fear of the sheepdog over the wolves.
As far as the sheep fearing the sheepdogs, I can't really say if the problem lies there, or whether it's the wolves trying to convince them to fear the sheepdogs and instead put their trust in the wolves, who wish to establish a Socialist Utopia -- which will, of course, have no wolves, and therefore there will be no need for sheepdogs. The fact that this has never worked before in the history of mankind, especially in Socialist "paradises," doesn't matter. The wolves just wear different costumes every time.

Yes, this is an ancient battle and the wolves never deliver on their promises. It's about who will get eaten. Sadly so many sheeple are happy to be eaten last...

Problem is that the sheepdogs and the wolves often resemble each other to the extent the sheep get confused.

This medication is used to help relieve severe ongoing pain (such as due to cancer). Oxycodone belongs to a class of drugs known as opioid (narcotic) analgesics. It works in the brain to change how your body feels and responds to pain.
The higher strengths of this drug (more than 40 milligrams per tablet) should be used only if you have been regularly taking moderate to large amounts of opioid pain medication. These strengths may cause overdose (even death) if taken by a person who has not been regularly taking opioids.
