Denounced for Acknowledging Notre Dame

It would be impossible to overstate the malice and foolishness of Cultural Marxist publications like the Washington Post, whose Talia Lavin yesterday took Ben Shapiro behind the woodshed for making the indisputable observation that Notre Dame symbolizes Western Civilization:

[F]ast-talking far-right [sic] pundit Ben Shapiro called Notre Dame a “monument to Western civilization” and “Judeo-Christian heritage.” Given the already-raging rumors about potential Muslim involvement, these tweets evoked the specter of a war between Islam and the West that is already part of numerous far-right narratives; it was also a central thread in the manifesto of Brenton Tarrant, the alleged Christchurch, New Zealand, shooter.

If even a moderate conservative who scrupulously obeys the strictures of political correctness recognizes the cultural significance of Notre Dame, this puts him in a box with a mass murderer.

Such villains must not be permitted to express unwoke facts. The WaPo editorial ominously concludes:

It is past time that those who stoke inflammatory rhetoric, knowing its potential to catalyze racist violence, were made to stop playing with fire — before it’s too late to control the inferno.

Sounds like she would like to see Shapiro imprisoned for his allegedly inflammatory awareness of Notre Dame’s significance.

It isn’t enough for them to hate European heritage. Progressives want to prevent us from acknowledging that there even is such a thing.

Reasoning with the Jacobins who now comprise the Democrat mainstream is not feasible. However, clear-headed reasoning is Shapiro’s stock and trade, so he had to try anyway. This drew a predictable response from the liberal establishment:

You may as well try to reason with a monkey as it flings its feces through the bars at you. The only difference is that these monkeys may soon have complete control of the zoo.

On a tip from Varla.
