I am more than usually disappointed by Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of the “religious liberty” bill. I had believed that Brewer was a woman of principle who would not be buffaloed. Not so, I guess.
In this episode, the disgraceful threatening of Arizona by corporations (“American” Airlines, AT&T, Marriott, Delta, Verizon, Apple, Intel) is another low in American social-political life. It is also further evidence that the cultural-revolutionary elite that is the enemy of civilization extends far beyond the targets conservatives usually criticize — government, academia, media, entertainment — into things most people still instinctively think of as conservative: business, the military, organized religion. Those of us who follow the immigration wars know that, but most people still don’t. We should publicize, as best we can, the role of big businesses in this cultural subversion. Another good example is the Coca-Cola Company’s Super Bowl ad, with the U.S. national anthem ostentatiously sung in a myriad of languages other than English by a host of people who are visibly not American. These are all insults to actual Americans, but we seem to have had the ability to take justified offense bred out of us.
