When it comes to winning hearts and minds of Americans, liberals cannot compete with conservatives on policy issues. Socialism doesn’t work, political correctness is a joke and “social justice” is really legitimized racism in America.
However, conservatives consistently lose on the cultural front. In a world where Kim Kardashian is infinitely more-revered than David Horowitz, it’s easy to see that if we are going to reach Americans, conservatives need to get a bit creative.
That’s where Steven Crowder comes in. The comedian is fairly shrewd and with his popular YouTube videos not only makes people laugh, but highlights some important political issues and showcases the reality of the leftist mindset in often-satirical and always-funny style.
To emphasize how ridiculous the left is, Crowder, a Canadian- American, went undercover as Jean-Guy Tremblay, a “newly-naturalized French Canadian” who is enthusiastic about Bernie Sanders and all the “free stuff” the socialist candidate promises.
The “journey for Bernie” took several unexpected turns as Crowder encountered some evident hypocrisy amongst the socialist crowd who wants “free” stuff.
Immediately, he encountered a man with tee shirts. Crowder inquired if he could have one, but the man was embracing the free-market capitalism against which Sanders raves and was selling the Bernie shirts for profit.
As he encountered the long line, Crowder cut in line (as is acceptable under our current immigration policies) and encountered tight security.
“So much for open borders,” Crowder observed. Evidently, Sanders doesn’t want just anybody getting through security.
When he encountered supporters with many free signs, Crowder explained that he had none and to his satirical surprise, the socialists who are all about sharing would not give him one.
It seems that young socialists are more about taking than contributing…
When Crowder began discussing socialism with Sanders supporters, however, the young leftists gushed enthusiastically about the need to punish the rich and obtain “free” everything.
The situation was described by Crowder as a “comedic horror show.”
A black woman who did not work seemed bewildered when Crowder asked how she was able to afford such an expensive iPhone and another young bisexual woman maintained that she wanted to go to school for eight years and then go to grad school and that Bernie would “help with that.”
The video shows the shocking disregard for reality and self-responsibility that is the cornerstone of Sanders’ campaign and would be pretty funny if the situation itself was not so horrifying.
We must be willing to fight liberalism not merely on a policy level, but on a cultural level as well. In this view, Crowder does America a great service.
