When identity politics is your answer to everything. “As Virus Cases Rise, Another Contagion Spreads Among the Vaccinated: Anger,” the New York Times hisses. “Vaccinated people are ready for normalcy — and angry at the unvaccinated,” the Washington Post jeers. “It’s O.K. to be mad at people who refuse to get vaccinated,” America Magazine reassures. Hating people is a hell of a prescription for a medical crisis, but to the Left all problems are political problems. And they deal with political problems by hating twice as hard as ever. Our media, like that of most totalitarian countries, exists to tell regime loyalists whom to be angry at today while distracting them from the regime’s latest disaster. The American Left only knows and understands identity politics. Its view of the world is rooted in the same Marxist theories that made the Soviet Union and every Communist government so dysfunctional, but the need to juggle the intersectional dynamics of multiculturalism has made it especially insane.
