How Did We End Up Having a Minority Rule in America?

It just doesn't make sense.

How have we allowed the majority of Americans to lose their voices in the cultural wars and laws?

How could Floridians allow one person the power to ban books in the state's education system? That happened this week in the latest attack on school agendas by its corrupt governor.

How did we come to the place where businesses and corporations are being pelted by political activists who are dictating what they can and can't sell.

Look at what happened with Target this week. The company is pulling its LGBTQ merchandise ahead of Pride month in June because they're facing "threats" and backlash from homophobic customers backing the MAGA hate cult agenda.

In a pathetic Mea Culpa, a company spokesperson admitted, "Given these volatile circumstances, we are making adjustments to our plans (as in chickening out), including removing items that have been at the center of the most significant confrontational behavior."

On Twitter, California Gov. Gavin Newsom accused Target chief executive Brian Cornell of "selling out the LGBTQ+ community to extremists."

Target is not alone in buckling to culture war extremists as we've witnessed MAGA's war against everything from M&Ms to Bud Light.

Florida Gov. DeSantis is currently waging war against Disney because they've stood up for the LGBTQ+ community.

All of the above incidents show how the majority of Americans are being canceled by conservatives and disenfranchised by Republican lawmakers in Congress.

School districts are bowing to minority views on education because key players in state governments are waging war against the so-called "Woke" parents who are trying to preserve real history in classrooms and not let authoritarian propaganda rewrite it.

In 1991, author James Davison wrote a book that summarized what was happening in America: "Cultural Wars.

I highly recommend reading it for a comprehensive look on why we're in an era where minority/extremists are wielding so much power. 

The author explained how this came about in the latter half of the 20th century when cultural wars were just waged within the white middle class before spilling over to all Americans.

In summary Davison called our new reality a class-culture conflict that ends in justifications for violence.

As it stands, historically cultures evolve and devolve depending on the era.
