Seems to me that the Left has by its massive power play of 2020 either wildly overplayed its hand or has rightly judged that it was time to convert the cultural gains of the last 50 years into institutional currency.
Regardless, the second most consequential result of the coup is the great awakening of the Right that I posit has only just begun and culturally will be a seismic shift.
The Left began its long march to power generations ago and one of its greatest strategic victories was the capture of the public narrative primarily in the form of institutional control of media and education.
Via control of the media in particular it has been able for some time now to capture and direct the thoughts of the great Mob of American Sheep of both the Left and Right that by their nature as Sheep are ill-informed, seek the path of least resistance, and are inclined to conform.
One of the most powerful weapons in the Left’s media-arsenal is the ability to coordinate attacks on perceived ideological enemies of Progressivism by reporting corporate malfeasance as though it is news. For example, it can target a private company that does not toe the Progressive line, or worse yet, manifests some openly Conservative inclination. This wont effect gun manufacturers who dont give a rip what the Left thinks but if you are trying to sell a politically or morally neutral product or service to the general public, being accused of being horrible by the man with the bull horn in front of your store can kill your sales. Better to hide your Conservative inclination, or better yet, just openly toe the Progressive line… as so many American companies do.
The nascent Conservative media does not yet possess the power to make corporate America fear us as it does the Left, but the power and anger on the Right is now so deep that my assumption is that in 2021 this will really begin to change. Somehow.
In the meantime I haven’t purchased anything from Amazon since they banned Parler. But I’m just a house fly. We wont bring that pachyderm to heel until we become a swarm of tsetse flies eating out its colon and choking it every time it draws breath.
