Saturday, I referred to ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ now hosted in the Perth public library.
As prior outlined, because of unbridled private obsession, the elites can ferment disturbing trends–such as ‘Drag Queen Storytime’–and essentially avoid scrutiny for their iniquities.
However broadly unabated the sexualisation of children may be, there exists *some* political opposition to this phenomenon. This resistance came via Facebook, in a November 6 post from WA Liberal Senator Matt Sullivan:
I have written to the City of Perth asking them to cancel their proposed ‘Drag Queen Storytime’.
It is not appropriate for a local government body – especially one whose elected council is currently suspended – to organise events where adult entertainers interact with children. This is yet another example of local government overreach.
Now certainly, it is worth giving some credit to perhaps the only Australian politician, publicly questioning the wisdom of Drag Queen events.
That said, this response is devoid of any capacity to actually turn back the Drag Queen tsunami. Thus, it warrants criticism.
Sullivan’s problem with ‘Drag Queen Storytime’ is, ostensibly, administrative. “Local government overreach… inappropriate for a local government body,” are his main objections to this demonic proceeding.
This is a polite, conservative reaction; and while I assume Sullivan would prefer there was no ‘Drag Queen Storytime’, he is not fighting vociferously to win the culture war. Emphasising procedural concerns, rather than morals, is not the most fervent attack one can make against sexual subversion.
Compare this diplomatic approach with Sullivan’s ideological opponents, and there is scarcely a starker contrast. En route to their post-racial, tolerant utopia, the Left will stop at nothing: smearing conservatives as racist, sexist, Nazi, White supremacist and bigoted. Leftists have cheered on political violence against Tony Abbott and Fraser Anning; the ABC doxes young people. For all the moral misgivings decent people may have, such tactics point to an unequivocal conclusion: the Left craves victory and fights accordingly.
If we are to be truthful, Matt Sullivan does not yearn for victory like the Left does. Which is unsatisfactory, as Greg Johnson explains,
Other things being equal, the side that fights to win will defeat the side that fights for a draw.
In his own mind, Matt Sullivan might not be fighting for a draw. But his lack of zeal for the culture war is telling, sadly, of a broader ardour deficit which plagues conservatism. Until such a time that conservatives passionately defend their beliefs, they will lose. For in challenging times, the least committed will hastily surrender–before moving themselves to safer ground.
