Welcome To Culture War 4.0: The Coming Overreach

For those Americans who hoped the culture wars would finally end, the month of June reminded us they’re just getting started.

Within hours of the Supreme Court’s resolution of the battle over same-sex marriage—the triumph of a generation of gay-rights activists—some were already calling for further steps to take tax exemptions away from churches, use anti-discrimination laws to target religious non-profits, and crack down on religious schools’ access to voucher programs. We learned media entities would no longer publish the views of those opposed to gay marriage or treat it as an issue with two sides, and the American Civil Liberties Union announced it would no longer support bipartisan religious-freedom measures it once backed wholeheartedly. A reality TV star pushed the transgender rights movement into the center of the national dialogue even as Barack Obama’s administration used its interpretation of Title IX to push its genderless bathroom policies into public schools. And we learned that pulling Confederate merchandise off the shelves isn’t enough to mitigate the racism of the past—we must bring down statues and street signs, too, destroying reminders of history now deemed inconvenient and unsafe.

    On Mark Steyn’s blog he has written an excellent article of how this ressembles Germany in the early 30s; it is worth reading.

    • I will check that out. The Brownshirts are definitely roaming freely again.

      I’ve been saying it seems like 30’s Germany for a couple years now, I hope I’m wrong, but the coming stock market crash could set up the second coming of Hitler. …

      This is why I don’t buy digital books, it’s too easy to edit them and download the “updated” version to your device. At least with a paper copy they have to physically destroy it to “change” history or facts.
