It’s been said that the culture wars are over and the Left has won. But is that really the case? Last Sunday night, while most of us were busy not watching the Grammys, nonbinary singer and wannabe provocateur Sam Smith gave a performance that included a hat with devil horns and a harem of dancing demons. But is this truly a “winning battle” in the Left’s culture wars against the American Right?
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at this claim and examine the evidence behind it. We’ll explore the implications of Joy Reid’s assertion that the Left has won the culture wars, and consider the reaction from the American public. Read on to find out whether the Left really has won the culture wars, or if it’s just wishful thinking.
MSNBC’s Joy Reid recently declared that the Grammys were a “celebration of the very thing the American Right has turned into its latest anti-wokeness bogeyman: Diversity, equity, & inclusion.” She went on to declare that “the culture wars are over, and the Left won. Like total defeat.”
But is that really the case? While it’s true that the Grammys did feature a diverse lineup of performers and song lyrics in Spanish, same-sex marriages, black artists winning awards, overweight backup dancers, and a racially diverse audience, it’s important to note that most Americans simply could not care less about this sort of thing. It’s become so commonplace that it’s just plain boring and lazy now.
It’s also worth noting that the Left’s success in the culture wars has never been based on convincing anyone to agree with them. Instead, their success has been based on deception and social bullying. The fact that they think their momentum is unstoppable is actually quite hilarious.
Ultimately, it’s clear that Joy Reid’s claim that the Left has won the culture wars is premature. While it’s true that the Left has made some progress in recent years, it’s far from a total victory. It’s important to remember that the American public is still largely opposed to the Left’s agenda, and their attempts to push it down our throats will only backfire in the end.
