The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

The Culture War is a Leftist Offensive

I am not in agreement with all opinions of this author on other subjects, but on this one, yes, I sure am.

Republicans and conservatives used to participate in the Culture Wars (I’ve spoken out against this in older posts on this blog, such as this one or this one from 2013),
but in the last few years, it’s been the left, the liberals, and the Democrats, and the “Never Trump” Republicans who have been initiating and perpetuating the Culture Wars in the United States – but they keep acting as though the evangelicals, the Trump voters, conservatives, or Republicans, are behind the Culture Wars.

Democrats have become more extreme on social issues, and they aren’t prepared for the backlash.

July 8, 2021
by Peggy Noonan

The word now is radicalized. So many people feel pushed to the edge and are pushing back.  Go to social-media sites and search “school board meeting” adding descriptors like “explosive,” “outrage” and “chaos.” Parents are rising up. New York Democrats just picked an anticrime former cop as their mayoral nominee.

Other signs that suggests a spirit of having been radicalized: Longtime alliances based on natural affinity are loosening.

Conservatives by nature support and respect the military. That’s changing among some of them, or at least becoming less reflexive, under the pressure of changes of political correctness and a woke brass.

… There’s a sense in America of a continuing political realignment, that it didn’t all start and end in 2015-2016.

I think that what happened last summer, when the streets erupted and statues toppled, is being answered now with a pushback – a quieter one but no less consequential.

…. [Author Kevin Drum wrote a recent editorial on his blog.]

He titled the piece bluntly: “If you hate culture wars, blame liberals.”

July 24, 2021
By Ross Douthat

There is a harrowing story in The New Yorker that everyone should grit their teeth and read [see also resources on this blog].

Written by Rachel Aviv, it tells the story of how a respected German psychologist named Helmut Kentler decided to foster neglected children with pedophiles, how he ran this experiment with government support for decades after the 1960s, and how it created exactly the kind of hells you would expect.

…. That today the readers of an impeccably progressive magazine recoil in horror from that extreme is, among other things, proof that revolutions don’t move in one direction — you can climb back up a slippery slope, you can break a taboo and partially rebuild it.

But in its retreat from the Polanski era, its concession that sometimes it’s OK to forbid, cultural progressivism entered into a long internal struggle over what its goal ought to be — to maximize permissiveness with some minimalist taboos (no rape, no sex with children) or to devise a broader set of sexual regulations that would reflect egalitarian and feminist values rather than religious ones.

A Vaccine Or This Marriage: Conspiracy Theories Are Tearing Couples Apart

A Vaccine Or This Marriage: Conspiracy Theories Are Tearing Couples Apart

Ha ha ha haaaaa! And marriage-idolaters such as Al Mohler, and secular and Christian “pro nuclear family” organizations like to assure me, and try to brainwash me, to believe that marriage makes people more mature, giving, and ethical – and that it will “fix” society! LOL!

Marriage-idolater Bradford Wilcox has written articles in the past year to try to convince people that marriage makes people weather the Covid-19 virus fall out better than singleness.

Please understand, though, that the following is from left-leaning Huffington Post, and they will, of course, as liberals and leftists do, try to portray anyone who may have legitimate fears or concerns of coronavirus vaccines as being “conspiracy” crackpot kooks.

(This, from the same people who said when Trump was in office, that they’d not use any vaccines that were rushed out under or by the Trump admin. For example, see this CBS news article or this one from CNN. You liberals and Democrats have not been consistent on this vaccine situation.
You liberals and Democrats were against the vaccines before you were sniping at conservatives to hurry up and get vaccinated already.)

“He said if I take the vaccine I could pack my bags and leave his kids here.”
by Jesselyn Cook

For Lucy, a 59-year-old metastatic breast cancer patient from Washington state, getting vaccinated against COVID-19 was a matter of life and death.

After undergoing aggressive chemotherapy for months, the coronavirus almost certainly would have killed her.

Yet as relief washed over her upon receiving her final Pfizer dose in March, she knew she’d have to keep it to herself. Her husband had begged her not to get the shot.

As if we needed more proof that the Looney Tunes left is traveling down the crazy train tracks at an ever-increasing degree of silliness, a “transfeminist bioethicist” activist in Toronto is on the warpath against people who “gender” animals — refer to animals as either male or female. In other words, pretty much everyone on the planet.

Florence Ashley — who prefers the pronouns “they” and “them” — explained in a tweet:

“Gendering animals serves to normalise [sic] bioessentialist conceptions of gender. When we gender animals, we forget that sex is assigned. We begin to believe that sex is literally ~in~ the body.”

Sexual Abusers Vote Democrat and Some Child Abuse Victims Grow Up To Vote Republican: Jeri Massi = Huge Hypocrite

Sexual Abusers Vote Democrat and Some Child Abuse Victims Grow Up To Vote Republican: Jeri Massi = Huge Hypocrite

Sexual abusers, and those that cover up sexual abuse, exist among all political parties, and among all sorts of groups.

But I titled this post what I did because so many left- of- center individuals ignore sexual abuse and sexual abuse cover-ups when they are committed by Democrats, liberals, leftists, and groups they favor (e.g., such as LGBT persons).

I am no longer on Twitter at this time, but when I was, I used to follow a lady named Jeri Massi on there because she sometimes tweeted links to information pertinent to issues within the church (such as sexual abuse cover ups), and it concerns me that so many of those in the Christian faith continue to mishandle child sex abuse cases, or domestic abuse cases.

I was scrolling down Massi’s Twitter page one day to see if she had any new information (this was in January 2021), when I saw this tweet she made:

“Pedophiles Vote Republican Part #2 ” (Tweet Link – screen capture of the tweet below):Massi Tweet screen cap

(She made a few other, similar tweets, where she declares that “pedophiles vote Republican,” such as this one and another one)

Not only do some sexual abusers vote Democrat, some of them ARE Democrats, such as Bill Clinton, former Democrat President, who buddied around with noted child sex ring pedophile Jeffery Epstein.

(Link): New Jeffrey Epstein doc should finally lead to a reckoning with Bill Clinton

Clinton was also credibly accused by (Link): several adult women from the 1990s onwards with rape, but feminists of the 1990s let him off on that, because they wanted him in a second term to “protect abortion.” 

(Link): These are the sexual assault allegations against Bill Clinton (Democrat)

Andrew Cuomo, who is a Democrat (not Republican!) governor, has many sexual harassment claims against him.

New York Times Blames Non-Muslim Men for Refusing to Convert to Islam to Marry Muslim Women

New York Times Blames Non-Muslim Men for Refusing to Convert to Islam to Marry Muslim Women

What is it with Leftists thinking it’s acceptable for them to dictate to people, especially adults, who others should find attractive or want to marry?

In the past decade, leftists and neo-liberals have taken to pressuring or nagging everyone into dating trans persons, or people of other groups they simply do not find attractive for whatever reason.

Not that I’m sure if the Muslim woman, Farooqi, mentioned in the editorials below is a leftist, but leftists definitely are on the same wavelength as her.

(Link): New York Times provides platform to Islamic bigotry, columnist claims onus to convert is on non-Muslims after Hindu boyfriend refuses to convert

…. Farooqi (the Muslim woman who expected her Hindu boyfriend to convert to Islam to marry her) says of the whole affair, “Many people will never understand the requirements of marrying a Muslim. For me, the rules about marriage are stubborn, and the onus of sacrifice lies with the non-Muslim whose family is presumably more open to the possibility of interfaith relationships.”

“Many will say it’s selfish and incongruous that a non-Muslim must convert for a Muslim. To them I would say I cannot defend the arbitrary limitations of Muslim love because I have been broken by them. I lost the man I thought I would love forever,” she adds.

The sense of entitlement here is quite astounding.

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

The Associated Press Re-Defines the Word ‘Mistress’ Out of Woke Concerns

I realize that American  culture has long held double standards regarding sexual behavior, that men are allowed to be slutty, which only enhances their reputations among some, but if a woman is slutty, she gets referring to as a great big whore.

So yes, I am sympathetic to a point with the AP’s rationale behind this – but – I don’t fully support it.

Rather than holding men equally accountable for reprehensible behavior, “woke” moves like this one just seem to be watering down the same egregious behavior when committed by women. I myself don’t approve or EITHER biological sex committing adultery.

(Link): AP defends redefinition of ‘mistress’ following online ridicule, admits ‘alternative terms fall short’

(Link): The word ‘mistress’ is CANCELED: AP Stylebook bans use of the term because it ‘implies the woman is solely responsible for the affair’

(Link):  ‘Mistress’ becomes woke brigade’s latest target

The Associated Press Stylebook, which has traditionally set standards for language usage within the media landscape, mystified Twitter users Tuesday when it tweeted a reality-bending, wrist-slapping admonishment.

“Don’t use the term mistress for a woman who is in a long-term sexual relationship with, and is financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else. Instead, use an alternative like companion, friend or lover on first reference and provide additional details later,” the tweet read.

The Newly Declared ‘Super Straight’ Sexual Orientation is Being Hypocritically Decried as ‘Transphobic’ by Leftists, the Transcommunity, and Neo Liberals

 The Newly Declared ‘Super Straight’ Sexual Orientation is Being Hypocritically Decried as ‘Transphobic’ by Leftists, the Transcommunity, and Neo Liberals

Leftists and neo Liberals are very inconsistent, hypocritical, and arbitrary on some stances – they will defend Transgender Women (ie, biological men posing as women) having the choice to define their identity and to declare that “transgenderism” is a sexual identity – and a legitimate one at that – but at the same time, they refuse to allow others to define themselves, or to declare their own sexual identity, or declare whom they want to date.

superStraightLogo And, as neo-liberals, leftists, and all who defend identity politics do, they immediately seize upon things like this to claim that movements or views they don’t like, are associated with the Nazis, or were started by “the alt right.”

The left, and a lot of liberals, really loves to support the Genetic Fallacy and Guilt by Association.

Apparently, according to leftists, some feminists and neo-liberals, Non-Trans persons, (especially Non-Trans who do not want to date Trans persons), are the only people not “allowed” to make choices for themselves regarding their own identities, sexuality, or who they want to date or not date.

If you disagree with the Trans movement on any point what so ever, the narrow-minded loons who do support it, will declare you “transphobic” (a term which is not even accurate, but that is a topic for another post).
