It is human nature to naturally be friends with people who agree with you, so people are more likely to be friends with people who agree with them politically.

Liberals often make approval of liberal values a condition of friendship. Someone in a "liberal friendship" can expect loss of the friendship if he dares to express dismay or disapproval of the liberal values.[1]

A liberal friendship can occur wherever liberals apply peer pressure to spread their belief system. It can occur in college, in relationships, and in the workplace.[2]

In contrast, conservatives virtually never require censorship or acceptance of conservative principles as a condition of friendship.
