Are they nuts?
The speed with which the Betsy Ross flag was deemed racist is stunning.
This is true. In a couple of days, we’ve gone from a celebrity saying a flag is bad, to a major corporation indulging that judgment, to presidential candidates and governors blithely confirming and cementing it. In my view, though, the scariest part is not so much “how quick it has been,” but that there has been no argument or explanation to speak of. Upon the instant, professional progressivism has accepted the change as if it were taking orders from on high. “The flag is in the bad column now? Got it. Will amend attitude and proceed accordingly.”
Asked about the flag, Beto O’Rourke said, “I think it’s really important to take into account the impression that kind of symbol would have for many of our fellow Americans, respect the decision Nike made and grateful for the conversation.”
What “impression”? Which “fellow Americans”? What “conversation”?
Read the whole thing and, yes, they are nuts. These people are the walking wounded of the culture wars. They have to be terrified that whatever they do today, whatever they say, what they wear, what they eat, where they go, will tomorrow be denounced by some crazy nut with a megaphone. It resembles the Soviet Union under Stalin where today's "good communist" says something that Stalin dislikes and the next day he's shot and airbrushed out of the pictures. It's Stalinism. It's craaaaaazy!
