The Woke Are Home-Invasion Robbers

 From The Daily Wire:

Shrier decried the “hyper-polite fecklessness on one side of the boat and chest-thumping ignorance on the other,” displayed by many conservatives, citing as feckless Oklahoma GOP Senator James Langford’s passive response when questioning HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra about HHS using the term “birthing person” instead of “mother.” Langford said, “We don’t want to offend in our language. I get that. But would you at least admit calling a mom a ‘birthing person’ could be offensive to some moms?”

Shrier snapped, “It’s a clip worth watching because it exemplifies decades of Republican failure in culture wars that have seen Leftists wipe the floor with them. … if this is the best Republicans can muster, they deserve to be trounced over and over.”

Instead, she suggested asserting, “Mothers are not ‘birthing people,’ and to call us that is a disgrace. To refuse to call us mothers is an abomination, too. Sex-based rights are not yours to give away.”

“And if Republicans can’t say that, they should pack up their things; at least they won’t be in the way,” she continued. “The last thing America needs right now is more wallpaper over cracks. Time to toss out the ‘Aw Shucks Conservatism’ of navy blazers and boat shoes, the sort that believes matching jammies on Christmas suffices to save a country on the brink. That approach may have excelled when churches and civil society were strong and conservatives needed only to get married, raise a family, and perform the simple heroism of showing up. Today, it’s a loser.” (Read more.)
