Cowardice and the Culture War

Moonbats are winning the Culture War in a rout. It is a total war: a war of absolute extirpation. Daniel Henninger notes how easily leftist radicals were able to banish the Betsy Ross Flag, Chief Wahoo, and “God Bless America.”

Most Americans love their country and do not want to see it erased. So why is this happening? Cowardice is why:

No one has ever thought to go looking inside corporate headquarters for profiles in courage, but the lurch toward timidity in our time by individuals at the top of America’s private and public institutions is something to behold. Pusillanimity has become a plague.

Nike was only too glad to fold to Colin Kaepernick’s demands regarding the Betsy Ross Flag; the controversy helped them sell their overpriced sneakers to woke millennials who think it is cool to hate anything worthy of respect. But the Indians put up meager resistance before caving on Chief Wahoo. Not the Yankees, though. They immediately deep-sixed the tradition of playing Kate Smith’s “God Bless America” — despite tradition being the whole point of the Yankees.

Who cares about baseball mascots and flags on kids’ sneakers? We all should. This is cultural genocide.

It is insidious because with prominent American leadership falling over like empty plastic bottles, the bannings are coming too quickly and too easily. They’re starting to look like a slippery slope to institutionalized suppression.

Starting to look?

Political disagreement is supposed to be about argument. But the proponents of these claims don’t bother to make an argument anymore. Instead, they posit assertions, such as that Kate Smith had to be held “accountable,” or mascots such as Chief Wahoo are “hurtful.”

Even if leftists could win on arguments, it wouldn’t be enough for them, now that the Culture War is becoming a mop-up operation.

They no longer seem content with winning. The left today has a compulsion to force obedience again and again. Thus, You didn’t like Wahoo and Kate Smith? Try this: We’re getting rid of your racist Betsy Ross flag, and you’ll shut your face and take it.

What they want from their opposition isn’t agreement with their ideas but submission—a kind of political lobotomization.

There will be no dissent in utopia. After the Culture War has been lost, we will all pretend to like what social engineers tell us to like. Every time we let liberals take something away from us, utopia looms closer on the horizon.

On a tip from Varla.
