“As an organizer I start from where the world is, as it is, not as I would like it to be. That we accept the world as it is does not in any sense weaken our desire to change it into what we believe it should be — it is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. That means working in the system.” (Saul Alinsky, Rules for Radicals)
Conservatives are on the outside looking in. 2020 put that on full display. It’s possibly the only blessing of 2020. Conservatives were finally able to see how outnumbered they truly were. The devout left was given a uniform: masks. And boy, did people wear those masks. The priests of the progressive left told the masses to jump, and the masses asked how high leaving conservatives standing during a House of Pain concert.
Conservatives have known that academia, the media, and Hollywood were lost to the progressive left decades ago. In 2020 conservatives reaped what they sowed from retreating from those institutions. The fruit of that labor is they’re mocked daily in the media, they have to conceal their political beliefs in public, and they’re forced to send their children to government schools that indoctrinate their children against them.

It’s bluer than Eddie Murphy in the ‘80s. All universities, tech companies, financial institutions, and the government bureaucracy are on the blue side. The two red bubbles are the NYPD and the US Marines.
The only people who like the GOP are cops and future cops. It’s not much of a coalition, especially when you consider who will be giving the orders they’ll just be following.
This is where we are. We are in the minority. We are out of power. We are in enemy territory.
