Culture War

American Freakshow

The establishment hacks who Carlin despised said he was just a bitter old man at the end of his life, but he had zeroed in on the real problems in this country and who was most responsible, and they didn’t like it. I’m convinced anyone who wants to understand what has happened and is happening in this world just needs to read the words of Huxley, Orwell, and Carlin. They capture the zeitgeist of our times

Disney Decides To Be The Next Casualty Of The Culture War

The state of Florida has decided to reconsider the preferential treatment it has given the Disney Corporation since the 1960s. It turns out that Disney has benefitted from a number of legal and financial benefits not given to any other company in Florida. Under Ron DeSantis’ leadership, the state is putting some brainpower into thinking about if that’s really best for the state.

What Do The Shenanigans At Last Week’s Oscars Tell Us About Our Culture?

Is there anything at all about the Academy Awards that elevates the disadvantaged and marginalized in our poorest communities?  No.  Never has been, though.  The Smith assault itself was a loud air horn signaling open season on the crudest of reactions: random violence, and its potential for uncontrolled elevation.

Six Key Battles Currently Being Fought In The Culture War

Leftists believe that they, not parents, should be the ones instilling values in our nation’s children. If a father explains to his daughter that girls are girls and boys are boys, that’s problematic and must be stopped. If a mother teaches her son that God wants him to wait until marriage to have sex, and that marriage should be to a woman, such talk is homophobic and bigoted in their view. But this is a losing battle for the left, and a winning one for the right.

We’ve Entered The Necessary Age Of Zealots

Today there’s no great animus toward the people of Germany, but eighty years ago there was, and such a reaction was, in my estimation, absolutely necessary. War is an ugly thing, full of death and destruction and atrocities too difficult to process without a way to justify it in one’s mind. War cannot be prosecuted, no matter how just and necessary, without first making it mentally “okay.”

To Keep Winning Votes, the GOP Must Have A Plan to Win The Culture War

Voters have caught on and they’re not going to vote for a Conservative, Inc. candidate that mumbles the right things from time to time but obviously is lacking in both vision and courage. They want someone like Trump who throws convention to the wind and fights to preserve (or should I say conserve, since, theoretically, we’re conservatives) that real America of our ancestors.

Of Comedians and Politics: The Culture War Isn’t Funny, Just Ask Dave Chappelle

Then there is a large undefined middle class made up of a variety of souls who constitute the generic citizen. An important attribute of this middle class is that it is not beholden to or controlled by the “elite,” at least not yet. Wanting mostly to be simply left alone to pursue their own life goals, they are becoming a threatened class.

Cultural Imperialism Through Western ‘Art’: Did This Ill-Advised Effort Contribute To The Afghanistan Failure?

The Afghans rejected the “woke” agenda being force-fed to them by know-it-alls who intruded into their lives with no regard for what they thought and felt. Indeed, there is a very sizable segment of American society who react similarly to the cultural dictates of the institutional powers-that-be. Will they ever listen? Will they ever? Can they even hear?

Are We Seeing a Cultural Realignment?

Republicans are now unquestionably the party of the working man.  Labor unions continue to back the Democrats, but their members are definitely switching sides — and the election results prove it.  After decades of losing jobs to bad trade deals negotiated by their so-called advocates, they’re realizing that they were played for patsies. 

How the Left Plans To Put Boots on the Ground to Subdue Middle America

Of course, white supremacists are about as common as straight, happily married women at a NOW convention; why, I’m well into middle age and I don’t know that I’ve ever met one. This isn’t to say there aren’t liberals delusional enough to believe the threat is real; that they’re detached from reality is partially why leftists are so dangerous.

As the Culture War Rages, Opportunity Knocks

We’re in a culture war that’s just beginning to heat up, and we should act accordingly. And while our opponents may have a massive head start on us, that gap is ripe with opportunity for conservative businesses to fill the subsequent voids.
