On this episode of “The Federalist Radio Hour,” Libby Emmons, editor-in-chief of The Post Millennial, joins Culture Editor Emily Jashinsky to discuss how the rampant wokeness promoted by unchecked leftism could be progressives’ downfall.
“The progressive left has achieved their goal. They are in charge of the universities, they are in charge of the art museums and the art institutions, they’re in charge of the funding and granting organizations, they’re in charge of the federal government, they’re in charge of lots of state governments and city governments of our biggest and most influential cities, they’re in charge of the entertainment infrastructure and the social media infrastructure, they own all of this and they complain to us that we are oppressing them while we are being censored [and] we are being targeted,” Emmons said.
Jashinsky agreed that leftists have taken over institutions and seem to hold lots of power but said their inclination to embrace “anti-human” ideas could contribute to their demise.
“Maybe we’re racing against the clock to the point where, you know, they either destroy America or it’s taken back, but in the long term, unchecked leftism … the logical conclusion of their ideas is anti-human, and humans are not just going to be acclimated to anti-human behavior,” Jashinsky said.
Emmons later concluded that “it’s important for people to recognize that there is no moral good in slander, defamation, and lies in order to silence people that you disagree with.”
