Ace Nails It

Why, one well might wonder, are all sorts of people on the Left, and even Bill O’Reilly on the Right, hurrying to condemn Pam Geller rather than the Muslims extremists who wanted to murder her for the violence in Garland, Texas?

Ace has it figured out.

This is about class. This is all about class.

This is about, specifically, the careerist, cowardly, go-along-to-get-along mores of the Upper Middle Class, the class of people whose parents were all college educated, and of course are college educated themselves; the class that dominates our thought-transmitting institutions (because non-college educated people are more of less shut out of this industry).

It is a class which is deathly afraid of social stigma, and lives in class-based fear being grouped with the wrong people, and which is more interested in Career, quite frankly, than in the actual tradecraft of that Career, which is clarity of thought and clarity of expression.

Thus, our institutions of thought propagation are dominated by the very people who can be easily cowed by the Social Justice Warriors, and who will, therefore, adjust their speech in order to not run afoul of the thoughtless — and frequently lunatic — thugs of the censorious left.

Read the whole thing.

I think Bill O’Reilly’s problem is his success. He has to be careful because any big mistake will seriously harm his career. I think this is true for all well known people in public life. It is why Hollywood types mostly choose the liberal beliefs to stand behind because there is a very powerful and relentless liberal “hit squad” that will attack you for taking the “wrong” position on anything. There is no pro-constitution or pro-conservative hit squad that comes after you if you fail to toe the conservative line. So public people have to consider this before they say anything.
