Suddenly progressives, of all people, are deeply concerned about our culture’s long-held norms and traditions.
The irony in all of this is crystal clear. These are the same people who over the past few years have insisted that five-year-old boys becoming five-year-old girls is normal. They tell us that a guaranteed basic income and running for president as a Socialist is normal. Forcing Catholic hospitals to offer birth control, undocumented immigrants voting in our elections, and abolishing the police: normal, normal, and normal.
I disagree with the author's conclusion. I agree with Glenn Reynolds:
There’s an old joke about a boy who complains to his mother that his little sister keeps pulling his hair.“Oh,” responds the mother, “she doesn’t know that it hurts.”A few minutes later, the mother hears the girl scream and runs into the other room. “She knows now,” the boy explains.There’s a lesson for Republicans in that old joke, if they’re smart enough to absorb it.
You want love and respect? You first!
