Video: 'Oikophobia' And The Hollywood LeftTopics: Political News and commentaries
Bill Whittle returns with a new Firewall (Hat tip - Ed Morrissey), complete with the truth and common sense that we've learned to expect from him. This time he's got a new term - oikophobia (fear and hatred of one's own culture and people), the opposite of xenophobia, and he argues that it wasn't conservatives who launched the culture war in the 1980s, but the Left ... who starting much earlier ... when the workers' revolution promised by Karl Marx failed to materialize because capitalism actually delivered expansion of wealth and rising standards of living. Instead of losing the economic argument, the Left tried winning a culture war -- and it largely succeeded.
Oikophobia has brought down civilizations since there have been civilizations ... and now we're infected, too. As Whittle points out, the negativity and self-loathing of modern Hollywood is just a small gear in the machine that brings down entire nations.
The solution? We can walk right into the heart of Mordor and destroy the Ring of Power.
Well worth taking the time to watch the whole thing.
