Those who are offended by brute force tactics in the battle against social justice warriors forget that we are in an ideological war with real enemies.
He’s been making popular, funny videos challenging social justice warriors for over a year now, but somehow I managed to miss entirely the Chris Ray Gun phenomenon. This video, which just popped up on my radar is great (and technically very well done) . . . and it’s not the only one of its kind. In fact, it’s part of a whole “Social Justice : The Musical” series Chris did. (Language warning.)
Here’s one more scene from his “musical”:
Now that you’ve watched and enjoyed those videos, I bet you’re going to do precisely what I did, which is to head over to his YouTube channel and watch his other stuff. You’ll see that, as is the case for so many of today’s noisy, clever, in-your-face young challengers to the stifling edicts of social justice warriors and Progressivism generally, he’s not a “pure” conservative. Instead, he’s a “sick of this Leftist” crap young man who’s willing to put himself out there in a big way to challenge to SJW paradigm that is dominant in education, entertainment, sports, and most of the other aspects of American culture that intersect with millennials.
Which brings me to another thought: When it comes to this “in your face” quality, Chris is right up there with others leading the fight against social justice warriors: Milo, Paul Joseph Watson, Ann Coulter, Steven Crowder, and our own President Donald Trump. None of them are much given to polite debate. They are willing to be vulgar, rude, insulting, belittling, and even obscene when they challenge the Left.
Indeed, these conservative firebrands often use the social justice warriors’ own tactics against them, even if that means digging into the Alinksy playbook. After all, the Alinsky playbook is not about core ideological issues. It’s a tactical, or procedural, manual, not a substantive one.
The firebrands are this way because they understand that this is not a college debating team. They have figured out that America is in a zero sum ideological war. Only one side is going to walk away the victor from this one. We not dealing with competitors; we are fighting dangerous enemies.
