The Left’s Endless Culture War


I have a lot more to tell you, but I'll hold some of it for next week and end with a treat for you:

Coincidentally the day before Pres. Obama broke the news of his new war on DOMA and marriage, Maggie wrote a syndicated column called “The Left's Endless Culture War.”

“The culture war will never be over,” she presciently predicted, “because the left will never permit itself to declare victory and stop pushing for more. The progressive imagination requires victims, in order to sustain its own identity as the hero.

“And being men and women of the left, they have no problem using government to reshape morality, preferably using your tax dollars to build institutions to reshape your children and grandchildren's moral outlook. And on the left, they have no problem aggressively condemning fellow citizens who disagree with their novel views as bigots, haters, and all around morally bad folks.”

In short she reminds us, “when it comes to the culture war, gentlemen may cry 'peace, peace,' but there is no peace.”

And so the question she asks for the rest of us becomes: “Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?”

We will fight this fight for you and with you--for marriage, for common sense, for democracy and our beloved Constitution.
