The current Democrat narrative is that the GOP is focusing on irrelevant culture war issues like political correctness now. For all our sakes, we should hope that they win this battle.
“I swear to God, I don’t want to talk about cancel culture and this nonsense every week, but I just think people understand how this is a tsunami and how fast the goalposts change almost on a weekly basis,” Maher began the discussion on Friday night.
“Yeah, they’re snowflakes, too,” Maher responded. “But they don’t control the media the way these brats do. That’s the problem. I don’t think that it was Republicans who got Alexi [fired].” …
“People go to parties now and they don’t want to talk. They’re like, ‘Can I talk? I don’t know your girlfriend. She might be woke.’ Really. I’m not making this up,” Maher said. “This informant thing, it’s not just what you do, it’s what you don’t report. That’s another way the goalpost moved.”
Is it really a trivial issue?
What do you do when a single brat has the power to comb through your entire life history on the internet, form a social media mob and destroy your life over a single gotcha tweet?
What do you do when these brats have made our culture so toxic and have created so much resentment against them that it has created a generational divide that is redefining our politics?
What do you do when the entire country has to walk on eggshells, self censor and constantly look over their shoulder for brats and calculate and assess the risk in everything they say and do?
What do you do when other world powers like China start dismissing the United States as a declining power because the brats and their toxic bullshit have become a national security threat?
What do you do when people lose trust in the media and there is no longer a shared set of facts because the brats have taken over the New York Times and have destroyed journalism?
And so on.
Oh well … it is just the “racists” who don’t like them. In the last two weeks, they have taken out Mumford & Sons, the host of The Bachelorette and this black journalist Alexi McCammond. They narrow the appeal of everything that they touch and increasingly that includes the Democratic Party.
