Response to Glenn Beck: “I Think I Played A Role, Unfortunately, In Helping Tear The Country Apart”:
You never question any of the “progressive” premises you’ve been marinated in your whole life, do you? You take it all for granted, confident that Rightness And Truth™ have already been presented to you, never digging in and questioning any of it.

It’s now clear that 2013 will be remembered in history as the year when “holiday conversations with your family” suddenly became this huge media fixation. Is there a reason this concept has suddenly been everywhere? There have always been holidays, and those holidays have always had family get-togethers, in which family members always have conversations, yet it’s only this year when media began obsessing over this fact. It’s weird.
