Why Are Republicans Committed To Losing The Culture War?

Published

on

Despite having the best possible conditions for throttling the old enemy – communists and fellow travelers – in cultural and educational institutions and the media, Republicans remain as determined as always to wrestle defeat from the jaws of victory.

Having a Republican administration, Republican majorities in Senate and House, and a slew of conservative judges appointed within the past year apparently is not enough of an encouragement and motivation to go after the intersectionalist elements on their own turf.

Everyone in the conservative Republican circles seems to agree on one thing: the progressives have taken hold of Hollywood, colleges, publications, and the arts, and are taking full control of children’s hearts and minds from early childhood by dominating public school education and trying to destroy any chances for alternatives. The solution is likewise self-explanatory: opposing this takeover by any means possible, and certainly by funding the kind of educational and cultural programming that instills critical thinking skills and promotes conservative values.

However, despite some modest legislative and executive successes, the brunt of the grassroots work necessary to implement such changes  on the ground level has not even started. The obvious explanation for that is the shortage in funding towards the development of cultural institutions and extracurricular educational programming that would attract young talent. Likewise, despite a plethora of outlets for conservative political activism, there are few to no options for conservative cultural development, including funding for exciting new media outlets aimed at young professionals students. Conservative humor lurks in the shadows, not daring to peek into the daylight. Conservative moviemaking is limited to Clint Eastwood. Conservative discourse is still treated as something either reserved for the elites or “deplorable” and “risque” rather than normalized in all sorts of social settings.

If “democracy dies in darkness”,  then conservatism dies through inaction.

Death by overtalking seems to be the fate that awaits most of the so-called activist. As for the most loyal of Trump donors and supporters, they are as much to blame for this state of affairs as anyone else. As President Trump’s appointment of various ambassadors has demonstrated, there is no shortage of Republican donors. They are not shy about supporting the rising conservative stars, particularly if they personally benefit from the arrangement. Not only do they get a friendly politician in office, but with the president they have funded, they now get to go abroad and have a good time in a prestigious position. Yet when it comes down to the hard work of funding conservative programming, they are nowhere to be found. The same people who claim to be interested in winning the culture wars, and who welcomed President Trump precisely because of his perception as the slayer of political correctness and the winner of cultural wars, they actually do nothing to promote the spirit of his agenda. There is no general without an army, and right now, the army seems more interested in traveling to friendly countries than in doing the hard work of identifying, recruiting, and educating new troops.

There is no fighting cultural wars merely with campaign managers. Campaign managers do not have access to mass culture; they are responsible for spreading the message, not being the outlets for that message. Enemies of freedom are winning because its friends are too disinterested to to invest their time, energy, and money into worthwhile projects that will change the ideological playing field for the generations to come.

And to the extent there is any support for conservative education or journalism, conservatives, as usual, make a fatal mistake of isolating themselves in conservative safe spaces, wrapping themselves in layers of bubbles, and whispering sweet nothings that do not survive the hardships of real life skirmishes with battle-hardened progressives.

Conservative colleges and outlets are not a real answer to winning cultural wars. Infiltrating and taking over cultural institutions, and going after independents is key to becoming the real majority, and conversely, winning future elections in decisive numbers, rather than scraping by thanks to the incompetence of political opponents.

Republicans who think they are being so loyal to their party and president should be ashamed of themselves. Through laziness and short-sightedness they are betraying everything they stand for. Given such lack of investment in rebuilding American society, how are these so-called Republicans and Trump supporters any different from the RINOs they decry after every legislative battle? Where is the focus on meaningful action?

Leave the talking points to the pundits. Go build a better future, and be quick about it before these latest Republican victories become our last.

Tommy Robinson’s Son Demoralized After Being Separated From Parent

Published

on

British citizen journalist Tommy Robinson is in jail facing possible murder by Muslim gangs while his son is at home demoralized in his absence. Robinson was jailed for filming on the street outside of a gang-rape trial, and he was recently moved to a prison with a much higher Muslim population.

Here is a passage from Tommy Robinson’s letter to supporters, which was posted to Patreon by Raheem Kassam. In this excerpt, Robinson quotes what his wife said to him about the status of their son:

“School rang me today though, before I went to work and said Spencer was really upset at school, to be honest he isn’t managing mate. Sam said to him ‘I’m doing a 5k run with my dad’, and Spencer said well I can’t do it with my dad and ran off crying. He cries himself to sleep. Sleeps with your pillow and ask me 50 times a day what day is dad coming home? I can’t even give him a rough date yet because you haven’t been give any! Just hope to keep telling him its not for long, nothing will change and he needs to be brave to make you proud. He said to me last night ‘I’m going to go and do something bad so I can be put in jail with dad at least then I will be with him’.”

It is a gut-wrenching series of events, Tommy Robinson has become a British national hero for the many people who believe rightly that the Crown is restricting freedom of speech and siding with the invading Muslim gangs over the native-born population of that once great nation.

See How This Trump Supporter Trolled De Niro At His Own Play

Published

on

A little more than a week after his vulgar anti-Trump rant at the Tony Awards, actor Robert de Niro was repaid in kind at the curtain call of his version of “A Bronx Tale,” the Broadway show.

In the style coined by independent reporter Laura Loomer, a man stood up at the end of the show, rushing the stage with a “Keep America Great” flag. De Niro is the director of the show.

“The times we live in,” wrote Joe Del Vicario, who was at the show. “At the end of A Bronx Tale, a man turned around and faced the audience to show us how big of a pair he has. He was escorted shortly after. It’s sad that people can’t enjoy a beautiful show and embrace its unifying message without politicizing it.”

 

But politicizing shows is nothing new for the left. In November 2016, a cast member of Broadway Musical “Hamilton” lectured Vice President Mike Pence after the show. Pence was booed while exiting the theatre.

WATCH:

“We, sir, we are the diverse American who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us.” said a cringeworthy Brandon Victor Dixon on stage.

After the show, Dixon continued injecting his politics into Broadway.

“We really thought this was an important moment to really say something,” he said. “To get in front of an individual with whom we feel we have differences and to make sure that he hears and he sees us.”

According to the new rules set by the left, yesterday’s “A Bronx Tale” protest is simply par for the course. The protestor, after all, was just getting in front of someone with whom he disagrees, right?

No surprise that the left does not want to play by the rules it has created.

Ted Cruz Beats Jimmy Kimmel in Charity Basketball Game

Published

on

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) beat late night television host Jimmy Kimmel 11-9 in a charity one-on-one basketball  game that came down to the wire.

“Can you be embarrassed by a picture of someone else’s dad? Because I am,” Kimmel said on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” after Cruz was spotted a Houston Rockets basketball game last month wearing a t-shirt over a polo shirt. “When Ted arrived at the Toyota Center, some of the fans mistakenly thought it was Grandpa Munster Bobblehead Night. I mean, look at him. He looks, and I’m not joking here, he looks like a blobfish.”

Cruz responded by challenging Kimmel to a basketball game.

All right, Big Guy…you talk a good game. You besmirched my support for the Houston Rockets,” Cruz said on Twitter. “So let’s settle this man-to-man: one-on-one, hoops (or ‘ring-ball,’ if you prefer). The loser gives $5k to the (non-political) charity of the winner’s choice.”

The two played at Texas Southern University.

“The crowd is fired up,” Cruz tweeted before the game began, attaching a video of the arena.

The game was initially supposed to be played to 15, but the pair shortened it to 11 because it was taking so long.

Partick Svitek of the Texas Tribune covered the big game live:

“You’re a good sport,” a bitter Kimmel said after a crushing defeat. “I still think you’re a terrible senator.”
