Homo author Bret Easton Ellis (not that being a homo is relevant to his point, but given the theme of GP’s blog, it has been noted) thinks normal people are really getting fed up with SJW horse-scat and a big snapback is coming.
“As someone who considers themselves a disillusioned Gen-X’er, I think there IS a backlash brewing against leftist hysteria,” Ellis told Observer over email. “What I used to semi-align myself with has no answers for anything right now, just constant bitching and finding ways to delegitimize an election.”
I don’t know if he’s right. I hope he is.
You know how for years, the pundit class has decried how the right was become narrower and narrower because, supposedly, conservatives were demanding ever more stringent demands for “purity.” But this exact phenomenon is really, literally-not-figuratively happening on the left, and those same pundits seem pretty okay with it.
As the Overton window in media, academia and Hollywood shrinks—ejecting conservative voices like Kevin Williamson, while opposing centrists in the vein of New York Times opinion editor Bari Weiss—that on the right grows.
