Joe Biden has been president for six months now.
We’ve been very busy lately. We haven’t missed a day since he was sworn into office. In between now and the 2022 midterms, we’re going to attack the Democrats on at least 24 different cultural fronts:
- Political correctness / wokeness
- Open borders / Abolish ICE
- Violent crime
- Civil liberties
- American heritage
- Cultural degeneration
- “Journalists” / Fake news
- Gun control
- Equity / Affirmative Action
- Obsequious worship of blacks / Africanization
- Professional class elitism / Technocratic condescension
- Vaccine mandates
- The War on Meat Eating / Bug eating
- Anti-whiteness / Anti-Christianity
- Deep State ties / Police state
- War on the Police / Defund the Police
- Progressive prosecutors refusing to enforce the law equally
- Black Lives Matter / Antifa violence
- CRT in public education
The list will undoubtedly grow as progressive activists pick new fights.
Abortion used to be the hot button culture war issue. I rarely write about it though because there is such a buffet of options to choose from. It is more effective to attack Democrats on all the new polarizing culture war issues that resonate with a much larger audience than the Religious Right.
“Should responsibility for the rampant levels of polarization that characterize American politics today be laid at the feet of liberals or conservatives? I posed that question to my friend Bill Galston, a senior fellow at Brookings and a columnist at The Wall Street Journal. …
Recently two columnists who are hardly sympathetic to Trump or Trumpism — far from it — raised questions about whether the right or the left deserves blame or responsibility for the kind of conflicts that now roil elections. Kevin Drum, in “If you hate the culture wars, blame liberals,” and Damon Linker, in “The myth of asymmetric polarization,” make the case that the left has been the aggressor in the culture wars. …
If right-wing manipulation of cultural and racial issues does end up backfiring, that will defy the long history of the Republican Party’s successful deployment of divisive wedge issues — from Richard Nixon to Ronald Reagan to George H.W. Bush to Newt Gingrich to George W. Bush to Donald Trump. Republicans have repeatedly demonstrated that the half-life of these radioactive topics is longer than expected, and Democrats, if they want to protect their fragile majority, must be doubly careful not to hand their adversaries ever more powerful weapons. …”
This list doesn’t include economic and foreign policy issues.
What has brought about this shift? We sat out the 2018 and 2020 elections and spent most of our time attacking Trump and the Republicans. The abrupt change in the material we cover here was caused by the decision made by Joe Biden and the woke professional class wing of the Democratic Party in January to unleash the national security state on the populist Right and to attack our civil liberties.
The professional class essentially declared war on the “far right.” We intend to fight and win that war and unleash the most vicious counterattack on Joe Biden’s despotism ever seen in American politics. We were only joking around in 2015/2016 in the Trump era. We’re not joking around anymore.
