Exhibiting degeneracy to condemn degeneracy
"Based" conservatives who regularly show video or stills of degenerate conduct risk desensitizing the public by constantly sharing this filth. Stop it.
If there is one area where social media excels, it is the ability to Point At Something With Outrage. This may come as a shock to many conservatives using social media to PASWO and comment on the culture war, but you do not have to share explicit images or video of degeneracy to condemn said degeneracy.
(Before we go any further, can we all admit that Pat Buchanan was right in 1992, and can those who damned him for pointing to the raging culture war apologize to him? Today, nobody denies that there is a culture war. Buchanan simply recognized what was happening.)
The most recent example of this is the fact that a Democratic staffer in the U.S. Senate filmed a pornographic video in a hearing room. One right wing influencer after another posted stills of the video, decrying the lack of respect for the institution and the shameless public nature of the degeneracy. But one need not show stills of the video to condemn it. You also do not need to show stills of topless transgender "woman" exposing his surgically augmented "breasts" on the White House lawn to condemn the degeneracy.
There is value in showing the evidence of this degeneracy, one might say, to educate the public about how radical the Left has become on cultural matters. No. There is no value whatsoever in showing this in public on social media platforms, especially knowing that children as young as 13 years old are allowed to use the platforms. Furthermore, you risk desensitizing the public by constantly sharing this filth, with no filters or warning. This behavior should be something that shocks the conscience, not something we see on a regular basis from supposedly "based" or socially "conservative" influencers.
Seriously, people, knock it off. You are not condemning anything. You are spreading the degeneracy even further, desensitizing the public, and involuntarily exposing both adults and minors to harmful material. This is not how conservatives should behave. Can we have just a little decorum and decency, rather than wallowing in the filth for social media clout?
