I’ll go back to expound on my favorite topic in politics, the culture war. I don’t know how many believe like I do the tie between the two is clear? It is not an old conspiracy theory.
But many Republicans in and out of office suffer from culture-phobia. For whatever reasons, they are horrified about weighing in on that or taking it on in any way. The rest of the public is not with them on that, which should tell them something.
I have explained that all here before. Any idea still out there that Republicans can stick to fiscal issues, national debt and security is blissful Neanderthal thinking.
We need to be more like Pat Buchanan than Steve Forbes. The culture has become a part of the battlefield. Days of sterile, exclusive political environments are long gone. It’s why Trump succeeded. People say it is divisive and controversial but that is the point. Like it or not, we have to deal with culture. It is as critical to our country as any external threat.
For instance, one of the top issues is schools. No, it is not a matter of bottom lines and budgets anymore. When everything is political and politicized on the Left, we have to fight that battle or lose the country. It is not a social media thing either but social media is emblematic of the larger problem, everything.
A perfect example of this is JD Vance running to replace Rob Portman in Ohio. No one represents that old Republican mentality better than Portman and he saw the writing on the wall. We don’t need another Rob Portman. He is the past.
When cops, race, justice, schools, borders, security, the climate and energy are all politicized what is the point in denying it as if it were some social niche?
Yes, they came for the Christians before, because we stood in their way, and now they have come for everyone else. We are all their political targets now, and so is the environment and culture we live in. Every thing is at stake along with the country.
Another example: when did it become so fashionably cool to hate America? I know there have been fringe elements for decades carrying a hate America banner, but it was not the maninstream like now. Polls show it is thriving on hate, racism, divisions and anarchy.
The anti-America culture now is real and thriving. It wants any semblance of America gone and replaced. American overhaul. (reality TV show anyone?) Of course they are not as clear on what would replace the country’s foundation as about tearing down or fomenting hate against the present one. But we know what that evil is. And it is deadly intentional.
