The Red Pill

Liberals sick of the alt-left are taking 'the red pill.' By Elizabeth Ames
Excerpt: The mainstream media failed to see the rise of Donald Trump in 2016. Now it’s overlooking another grassroots movement that may soon be of equal significance— the growing number of liberals “taking the red pill.” People of all ages and ethnicities are posting YouTube videos describing “red pill moments”—personal awakenings that have caused them to reject leftist narratives imbibed since childhood from friends, teachers, and the news and entertainment media. You might say that those who take the red pill have been “triggered.” But instead of seeking out “safe spaces,” they’re doing the opposite, posting monologues throwing off the shackles of political correctness. Their videos can feature the kind of subversiveness that was once a hallmark of the left—before the movement lost its sense of humor. (I have been hoping and waiting for this for a long time now. I kept thinking the only good thing about extreme PC crap and vitriolic, really stupid acts by the Far Left was that eventually it would have to start causing those with operating brains and real ideals to react against it. Apparently it's happening, and we can only hope it spreads. --Del)
