The New Trumpism: Culture War Is Overrated
Watching right-wing populists downplay the importance of cultural revanchism is like watching communists downplay the importance of seizing the means of production.
Without that, what’s the point?
I can’t imagine Donald Trump shooing his fans away from their grievances against “wokeness” any more than I can imagine Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez scolding her own admirers for caring too much about redistribution.
But that’s the funny thing about this era in politics. Wondrous things happen routinely that one would never dream might occur.
