7 Reasons Conservatives Are Losing the Culture War

2019 March 7
by bc3b

If anyone who died before 1980 were to come back to life in 2019, he/she would be shocked.

The seven reasons John Hawkins cites are:

  1. Churches and Marriage
  2. Schools
  3. Demephasizing Character
  4. Desensitization
  5. Reluctance to Boycott
  6. The Size of Government
  7. Complacency

    An 8th would be traitorous Republicans. The name Paul Ryan instantly comes to mind.

    a 9th that tops them all — multinationals. The Citizens United decision from a philosophical perspective was rendered correctly. As a practical matter down on the street where retail politicking occurs, no. Its too easy for the Pols to go for the big money and multis are willing to provide for a favor. Sadly ironic too. If you take a look at Pols who do in-the-face door to door vote getting they increase their odds of winning. But that is too much like work, collecting all those little donations and shaking all those hands. Gee why not set up a foundation, collect the big money from Wall Street and the The Valley, then dribble the money to your campaign as needed.

    Folks if you use Chrome for any reason you might want to update. There is a nasty out there right now that is eating Chrome’s lunch and your data. Check your version, about:, and make sure you are version 72.0.3626.121 or higher.

    The Dems are not so much anti-Semitic (though they are) as they are increasingly in bed with Islam. There are more Muslims than Jews in America, and VASTLY more in the world, with VASTLY more money and power. The Dems are all about money & power!

    InstaPundit: “Over the past couple of decades, the Democrats have been quite deliberately assembling a coalition containing a lot of antisemites. It is thus unsurprising that the party is becoming openly antisemitic.
    American Jews have largely identified with the immigrants the Democrats have sought to encourage, seeing them as akin to their ancestors who fled to America. In fact, they’re more like the people those ancestors were fleeing from.”

    Insty links to a story on another contradiction in the Dem coalition. The linked story is not so important, this snip says it all:
    “Lesbian Feminist: It’s Not ‘Inhumane’ to Tell the Truth. It’s actually inhumane to force women to share intimate spaces with males.”

    A couple points:

    1. Secular Jewish organizations (e.g. Anti-Defamation League) actually support the Muslims
    2. Muslims aren’t just anti-Jewish (although Jews lead their hate parade). They hate all infidels

    Another reason is Hollywood. Or maybe they are just a tool for the character de emphasis and the desensitization. Seriously, is there a difference anymore between white hats and black hats?

    Folks,

    American Jews (80%) care about 3 issues:

    1. Abortion
    2. Pickle Puffers
    3. Affirmative Action

    Nothing else matters…

    A friend of mine asked me a short bit ago why I seemed to be so vocal about abortion of late.

    A bit of dialogue from ‘3 Days of the Condor’ came to mind. In the movie everyone in Robert Redford’s office is murdered by the CIA…whom he works for. He kidnaps a senior official named Higgins (Cliff Robertson) to get at the truth. Here is the dialogue:

    Robert Redford (Condor): “Somebody or something is rotten in the company.”
    Cliff Robertson (Higgins): “You never complained till yesterday.”
    Robert Redford (Condor): “You didn’t start killing my friends till yesterday.”

    I have always been against “late term” abortion, but since even the Democrat Party, the biggest cheerleaders for abortion, wanted it to be “rare”…and since even Roe v. Wade put restrictions on it, I didn’t opine about it very much.

    The scientific & medical REALITY is that the “need” to abort a baby beyond the 1st trimester, versus delivering it, has drastically diminished…if not gone away altogether. So, I kinda believed, the push to extend abortion “rights” all the way up to birth…and even beyond…should likewise be diminishing.

    Boy, was I wrong.

    Instead of acknowledging that advances in medicine have made it actually SAFER to deliver the baby, and attempt to save its life, the Democrat Party wants to make it EASIER to hack the child up in the womb and remove him or her in pieces.

    And instead of sticking to their old line of making abortion “safe but rare”, the Democrats in New York, and elsewhere, started a drive to make it HIP to abort children, right up to the moment of birth.

    Previously, we were told, abortion beyond the 1st trimester, was ONLY to approved by a doctor to “protect the health of the mother”. AND, even in New York, it was supposed to require THREE doctors approval. So they re-wrote the law to allow ONE doctor to approve the procedure…right up until birth…and re-defined “health” of the mother to include “Financial and Mental Health”.

    A Democrat Legislator from Virginia then teamed up with their Governor and said: “Hold our beer!” They wanted it to be legal to allow a baby who somehow survived an abortion to be left to DIE without care.

    This is where the dialogue I noted above comes in. Here it is again, with me and my friend inserted in it:

    Me: “Abortion is MURDER!”
    My friend: “You never complained too much until recently.”
    Me: “They didn’t start CHEERING the murdering of full-term babies until recently!”

    While I haven’t been silent about my opposition to abortion (though I still make allowance for early abortions in the case of rape or incest), I haven’t devoted as much time as I am now. But now they ARE cheering the murdering of full-term babies…and I am outraged!

    Last add. In 1945 my father was part of the U.S. Army column that liberated Buchenwald Concentration Camp. On orders from General Patton they rounded up every German within a 20 mile radius of the camp, transported them to Buchenwald, and forced them to walk through the camp and look at what was done in their midst…while they kept, at best, silent. People who support late-term abortion should be forced to walk through the charnel house that is the average Planned “Parenthood” clinic and look at what they are CHEERING.

    As long as we are into lists, Kazakhstan Bishop Athanasius Schneider listed the root causes of the clergy sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. He couldn’t be more correct:
    #1 Homosexuality among the clergy
    #2 Relativism of doctrine
    #3 A lack of ascesis in seminaries
    #4 Above all the absence of a deep and true love for Christ

    drdog, 22, that was very very interesting.

    When South Africa had a policy of “if you have 1 drop on non-white blood in your veins, you are coloured” it was considered a horrific, racist policy. Now some demographers use it to “prove” that whites are circling the drain and that minorities are the future.
    Pretty fascinating to read about another set of demographers with more reasonable assumptions.

    I didn’t know about this. If you have never heard of “Weapons Trivia Wednesday”, do yourself a favor and click on this. This one is about the use of “trench shotguns” by the Americans in World War I, German diplomatic protests and the American response.

    Short, about 1 minute, and humorous but has a bit of bad language.

    JR – I remember the old days in the 70’s we would argue the old slippery slope. Where we said it would start with abortion (1st term & dangerous pregnancies), spread to late term, then infanticide, euthanasia and finally “The Final Solution”. We were called nut jobs and crazies.

    Yet we are here. Look no further then how they demonize us, call us “deplorables”, sub humans and worse. Train rides and FEMA camps are not that far in the future.

    If only they could around the 2nd amendment and we would be lawful and turn in our guns.

    gnqanq, I do indeed remember. Hell, we don’t have to back to the 70’s. Even 10 years ago the horseshit from New York and Virginia would have led to a “rebellion” within the DEMOCRAT ranks!

    Once a society formally accepts that SOME people are “non-persons”…be they in the womb or just the wrong religion or political persuasion…then governmental approved “culling” of the citizenry is not far behind.

    But, as you note, we aren’t going to be good little citizens and turn our guns in. Heck, I just remembered I need to buy more ammo. 👿

    3 – What a dumb ass. Engineering a situation where one might end up with ‘one’ still in your personal possession would be almost par for the course, and situation you might be able to wiggle out of without criminal charges. Being so stupid as to grab 16, and then add insult and a longer trail by selling them. Shaking my head level dumb – triply so given whom he was contracting for, I mean it’s the OIG office for pete sake, how could you think 16 missing were not going to go unnoticed among the people who live to and who’s job is to investigate this very sort of thing?

    23 – Ditto in terms of I thought we had this at least “contained”, so didn’t speak about it much, the lunacy on display right now is straight up frightening.

    29 – Indeed.

    32 – More higher profile hoaxes will happen (after all the msm does the same daily – they just are smart enough to not run to the popo making statements) if that’s the case, and you’re right that is likely how this will play out.

    good, though a tad long, article. Here is a key section:

    ==> “Perhaps this explains the cavalier attitude of the left toward life in general. Leftists appear to be quite comfortable with killing infants. They’re generally in favor of euthanasia, and many have expressed the willingness to erase the elderly a la Brave New World. They are promoting childlessness as a sacrifice to their environmental deity (it seems not to have dawned on any of them that if we fail to reproduce, they’ll run out of people to push around and steal from). The left stomps about claiming that “Black Lives Matter,” but their policies, from welfare and abortion to gun laws and lousy schools, have caused the loss of tens of millions of black lives. ”
