Dear Progressives – The Problem is You
In case you missed it earlier this week, Kurt Schlichter has written a brilliant new piece for Townhall which correctly frames conservatism as the new voice of punk rock and progressivism as the dull, tired voice of the status quo.
Progressives constantly refer to conservatives as old-fashioned and backwards thinking when in fact, the exact opposite is true…
Conservatism Is The New Punk Rock
Conservatism is the Ramones at CBGB – loud, fast and alive. In contrast, liberalism is the headliner at a state fair concert. It’s Foghat, serenading its anesthetized fans as America slow rides into decline.
Back in the 70s, the Ramones put a steel-toed boot into the behind of a fat, flabby rock ‘n roll world that has lost its way. That’s what conservatives are doing today to American politics and culture. And the dinosaur rockers of the status quo hate it.
But some things have changed. Back in the 70’s, it was alienated young people leading the way, yet today’s Millennials support the very liberal status quo that keeps them down. What’s pathetic is that they are so eagerly complicit in their own serfdom.
Dead-end jobs, innovations like Uber sacrificed to protect established Democrat corporatist allies, and tons of student debt for their degrees in Feminist Interpretive Dance – you Millennials have been, and will be, fooled again. And again and again.
I want to make clear for the record that The Who rocks, though many liberals are likely offended by Roger Daltrey’s shamelessly heteronormative persona.
Look at ancient Hillary Clinton, that improbable Millennial heroine. She’s the Bachman Turner Overdrive of American politics, out there literally taking care of business – especially the businesses who take care of her by paying her hundreds of thousands a pop to come talk to them.
There’s no energy left in liberalism, no excitement, just more rules, more controls, everything the punks hated.
Kurt’s piece reminded me of the classic Sex Pistols song “Problems.”
Conservatism isn’t the problem, progressives. The problem is you…
