The conservative voice of the millennial generation

Bookworm recently had an opportunity to listen to Charlie Kirk. She came away with these thoughts, in no particular order.

1. While many people find laughable such notions as safe spaces, free speech zones, microaggressions, and trigger warnings, the fact is that these four ideas are being used to stifle not just conservative students but also pro-American ideas. 2. Social media isn’t just social; it’s an arm of the Left dedicated to controlling ideas by using carefully limited data to indoctrinate rather than inform. 3. The way to reach millennials, Charlie said, is to get them to express their dissatisfaction with government (“it’s corrupt; it’s too controlling; it’s scary”) and then ask them one simple question: “Why do you want to vote for the party that has as its goal making government even bigger?”) Little Leftist minds blown.

The other point Charlie made, which I loved because I’ve been making it for years, is that millennials are the most passive generation ever. As he’s pointed out to his age cohort, they’re Progressives, their teachers are Progressives, their parents are Progressives, their music and movies are Progressive, and they think they’re rebels — but what the heck are they rebelling against?

I have one answer, based on looking at the kids in my region. Their idea of rebellion is limited to sex, drink, and drugs. In all other ways, they are sheep, passively accepted the Leftist ideology that pours down on them from all corners of their lives.

4. Trump’s locker room tapes hurt him with millennials for a reason that wouldn’t have occurred to any of us: While millennials truly dislike Hillary, the tapes stuck a label on her that they readily recognize from their lifetime of indoctrination. Hillary is now a victim of the patriarchy in the form of Donald Trump, the misogynistic woman hater.

Bill’s rapes, assaults, and harassment, as well as Hillary’s vicious attacks against his accusers, are irrelevant. Not only did they happen a long time ago and in a galaxy far, far away (from a millenialist viewpoint), the women involved are old now. Youngsters look at them and (a) can’t imagine that these grim-looking, heavyset women were ever “babes” that Bill would attack and (b) are unable to feel empathy for women separated from them by so much time.

5. The Rolling Stone attack against the fraternity at UVA was not random. Leftists relentlessly attack fraternities and sororities because they are the last bastion of quality and the right to free association on American campuses.
