Progressive activists have recently opened up like 25 fronts in the culture war.
There is more material to work with than ever on that front in the Joe Biden era. We barely have the time to touch on the old culture war issues like abortion and gun control and it is a struggle to keep track of all that is going on. These people are just brimming over with some pretty wild ideas like abolishing the police and ending immigration enforcement and forced vaccinations and establishing a Ministry of Truth led by the ADL to censor “misinformation” on the internet and “trans” and cracking down on meat eating and toppling monuments of George Washington. This country is also being Africanized and new woke monuments of sacred blacks are being erected in the public square.
What about the economy though? What about foreign policy? So far, Joe has resisted the temptation to send troops into Haiti. Joe’s biggest moves on this front are withdrawing some, but not all American troops from Afghanistan which the public supports. He has continued the Obama and Trump tradition of air strikes and selling weapons to OUR GREATEST ALLY no matter what they do to Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank. CNN is saying that the cost of literally everything in America is going up under Joe Biden and it is difficult to come up with a more damaging economic argument than that one. It is clear from the polling that inflation and rising gas prices and the steady creep of shortages are striking an economic chord with Independent voters that complements their cultural concerns.
What about the Delta variant? What about the January 6th insurrection though?
Note: A FOX News poll last month found that this was a big problem on the economic front for Joe Biden. Joe’s own pollster has also warned him that it starting to stick and cut into his approval rating. Maybe this issue is temporary and will fade though?
