Filling in on "The Mark Levin Show" Friday night, CR contributing editor and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino broke down why the fringe “kooks” on the Left are winning the culture war but losing so badly where it counts — politics and elections.
What explains this bizarre dichotomy? According to Bongino, leftist “manufactured rage” (e.g. extreme animosity toward inanimate statues that most people never knew existed just a month or two ago) works to move culture, but at the end of the day, leftists have zero substance or solutions.
“They sell you anger, and rage, and ‘the other guy sucks!’ That’s all they have!” Bongino exclaimed. “They can’t run honestly on what they stand for, because what they stand for is a bevy of loser positions.”
