A couple days back, commentator Brent Bozell claimed,
One journalist is analyzing the elections correctly (for the most part) and it’s noteworthy it comes out of The Atlantic, clearly a liberal venue.
In her article “Liberals Are Losing the Culture Wars,” Molly Ball acknowledges that the left can attempt to diminish the results by saying this was “an off-off-year election with dismally low voter turnout, waged in just a handful of locales. But liberals who cite this as an explanation often fail to take the next step and ask why the most consistent voters are consistently hostile to their views, or why liberal social positions don’t mobilize infrequent voters.”
There is clearly a “passion gap” between the secular left and the religious right. The conservatives are mobilizing, spurred by an increasing liberal authoritarianism since the last presidential election, as the left puts “religious liberty” in scare quotes.
Reality check: “Liberals” are losing to progressives, who don’t care about culture wars. They use executive authority and the top courts to execute their whims.
The more irresponsible the progressives’ whims are, the greater a measure of their power we are witnessing.
It’s irrelevant that voters don’t agree with progressives if the progressives are dishing out the voters’ food, shelter, clothing, and medical care.
And religious people will just holler louder for Jesus in increasingly restricted areas, then go vote for progressives for the good welfare they get (taken from future generations).
In reality, voters don’t contest progressive rule for the same reasons cows don’t contest the farmer’s rule. Only independent people can be politically free. That’s the only vote that would matter, and where is it?
