Liberalism has been cancelled.
Woke progressivism is the new ideology of the Democratic Party.
White males are out. Women of Color are in. Equal justice is out. Social justice is in. Freeze peach is out. Censorship is in. Tolerance is out. Repression is in. Non-violence is out. Violence is in. Objective facts are out. Storytelling is in. News is out. Narrative is in. Equality is out. Equity is in. Populism is out. Technocracy is in. Reason is out. Faith in the new emerging religion of wokeness and its martyrs is in. Civil liberties are out. Government surveillance by the “intelligence community” is in.
Where do the libs like Glenn Greenwald, Matt Taibbi, Andrew Sullivan, Thomas Frank and others fit in under this new order? These people were all celebrated 10 to 15 years ago on the Left. Today, they are objects of contempt and suspicion on the Left on the grounds of their race and sex. According to the gospel of Ibram X. Kendi, they are as guilty as the rest of us of white privilege and oppressing people of color through the systematic racism and white supremacy which pervades our society like luminiferous aether.
This website has always been skeptical of liberalism. For years, I criticized liberalism for 1.) recklessly undermining social cohesion and 2.) creating the space for degenerate trends to flourish and 3.) the assumption that its foundations were abstract and universal rather than concrete and peculiar to the historical experience and preferences of Anglo-Americans. Now, we can say that liberalism has been finally eclipsed within the walls of its own citadels by its leftist allies. It is died on us.
Note: Undoubtedly, there will be people in our camp who object that Greenwald is a gay Jew or that Sullivan is a homosexual. While that is true, their own side looks at them and just sees “privileged White men.” Woke progressivism is synonymous with anti-whiteness. The White homosexuals like Sullivan are only slightly better off in the progressive stack.
