One of the reasons for the Culture war that has been fought by the left was to change what is acceptable and what is not and what is important and what is not.
Stacy McCain has written about this in terms of both what our culture will accept.
Birth rates in the United States are at an all-time low, and sexually transmitted diseases are at an all-time high. Prostitution and pornography are rampant. Heroin overdoses are a more common cause of death in many states than automobile accidents. Our borders are being overrun by an endless invasion of illegal immigrants. We have seen a surge of race riots from Ferguson, Missouri, to Baltimore to Charlotte. Police are targeted for assassination, and we have been repeatedly attacked by Islamic terrorists. American civilization is collapsing into anarchy, and what are students paying $45,610 a year to learn at Vanderbilt University? The evils of “heteronormativity” and “gender roles,” in classrooms where the textbooks are written by advocates of Queer Theory.
And what it will not:
Annual tuition at Columbia University is $55,056, and for that price, parents of Columbia students are guaranteed that their children will never be exposed to any fact or opinion that feminism’s campus commissars dislike:
On Thursday, students hosting an upcoming talk by scholar Christina Hoff Sommers put up roughly 50 flyers promoting the event on four different campus buildings at Columbia University and Barnard College. Within 24 hours, most had been torn down.
But while these things on campus are outrageous what’s really outrageous is what we are seeing in the electorate.
We’ve seen the results of eight years of Democrat rule on the economy, an economy of fear where people are one paycheck away from disaster.
We’ve seen the results of eight years of Democrat in general and four years of Hillary Clinton rule at state, our enemies in ascendance, ourselves in retreat and our allies forced to consider nuclear options for defense as they cant count on us.
We’ve seen a government target their political enemies and excuse their friends in a way that Nixon only dreamt of.
And now with the revelations from both Wikileaks and James O’Keefe we see proof of the actual actions of both the media to protect the Clintons and Democrats, the actual opinions of Democrats and Clinton insiders concerning voters and finally on the dirty tricks and corruption from voter fraud to fomenting violence.
Yet with all of that information available, even with the media’s attempt to spin it, we see the majority of the American voting public apparently don’t care.
In my youth if a party in general or a person in particular had done with the Democrats in general and Hillary Clinton had done in particular they would have been run out of town on a rail.
But thanks to their successful culture war, aided and abetted by those who kept insisting it didn’t matter we have reached this point.
That is the most damning revelation from wikileaks and O’Keefe, that the majority of the American public doesn’t give a damn anymore and I never thought I’d see the say when that would be true.
It’s an axiom that democracies and republics always die from within, not from without. I regret to say it appears American votes seem determined to prove it.
