Back in July, I wrote an article over at Freedom First Blog (where I have a weekly column) called “Cuckture.” For those curious, you can read the post here. In it, I talked about how culture warriors often have ideas that end up backfiring on them, because the ideas they have tend to the worst kind of awful.

Basically, the term comes from a combination of the word “cuck,” a term used by them to insult anyone they don’t agree with (which, yes I know, is also a real fetish, but who cares) and culture.

The example I used in the article was various culture warriors supporting Trump in hopes he’d do more things than are legal and some of them supporting Warren and her plan to break up big tech. However, at last nights debate what we saw is that cuckture is alive and well, and isn’t going away until Josh Hawley does.

During a question about big tech regulation, candidate after candidate talked about how much they wanted to break up these big tech companies, regulate them, and do everything in between.

The biggest supporter of this is Senator (and soon to be front runner) Elizabeth Warren. “I’m not willing to give up and let a handful of monopolists dominate our economy and our democracy. It’s time to fight back,” she said just last night.

While we’re on the topic, here’s another quote from her:

The attacks against @KamalaHarris are racist and ugly. We all have an obligation to speak out and say so. And it’s within the power and obligation of tech companies to stop these vile lies dead in their tracks.

I wonder if Tucker Carlson has ever read this Tweet.

Senator Kamala Harris has called for Twitter to ban Donald Trump, which she clearly would be willing to enforce with legislation. Possibly even executive orders if her proposal on gun control is anything to go by. Therefore, giving the federal government any power over Twitter could lead to this mad-woman becoming President.

Or how about Cory Booker, who talked about enforcing anti-trust laws (something you’d only bring up if you don’t think they’re being enforced)? Booker has been calling for the repeal of the Hyde Amendment which would force Americans to pay for abortions via tax dollars, wants a higher minimum wage, and doesn’t believe drugs should be imported from Canada to the United States.

Hey, what’s that thing Will Chamberlain made fun of people like me for saying:

If Democrats retake the White House, they can’t constitutionally use laws like the one I proposed above to constrain speech.

Hey Will, that’s exactly what those guys are saying they’ll do. What is one thing you yourself said separates peacetime and wartime conservatives?

Peacetime conservatives worry about setting precedents that Democrats could exploit in the future. Wartime conservatives recognize that Democrats do unprecedented things all the time.

So Democrats do unprecedented things all the time, but them using regulations you put into place against you is really just impossible? That argument makes no sense. Although, neither does anything else Will Chamberlain ever says, so I guess it makes that nothing he says on this topic makes any sense.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. This doesn’t go away just because the situation is political.
