    The Left’s Class Realignment of 2020

    The Left’s Class Realignment of 2020 white the right shifts to represent the “little guy,” America’s working class, and small business owners.

    America’s new year resolution should have admitted that the left now represents the privileged. If 2020 did nothing else, it confirmed the class realignment of America’s left. There is simply no member of the country’s self-styled elite who is not a member of the left. Instead of representing the “little guy,” America’s working class, and small business owners, our left represses them.

    Leftists’ age-old rhetoric has been that they stand against the elite. Their professed aim is to wield the power of the people for the “the little guy.” 2020’s reality exposed exactly the opposite: America’s left is its self-styled elites and their real aim is just to wield power.

    ...Originally, academic freedom gave the left access to campuses. Now under the left’s control, academic freedom has become an anachronism, with no place less tolerant of divergent views — the only true diversity — than campuses. Being a real radical on today’s college campus would mean being conservative.

    Establishment media has become the left’s off-campus campus. Here, it is laughable imagining journalism — the equal and unbiased pursuit and reporting of facts — existing. In poll after poll, Americans repeat their perception of bias and in response, establishment media repeatedly denies its obvious bias.

    ...America’s self-proclaimed cultural elite — from entertainment to arts to sports — are equally left....

    ...The left even suffuses sports....

    ...The left is also heavily represented among America’s monied interests....

    ...America’s left now is, and represents, the elite. In contrast to outdated conventional wisdom, it is conservatism that represents the increasingly oppressed little guy.
