My mom considers me a bit paranoid but I think it started with Middle America’s acceptance of folks like Oprah. She seemed to raise victimhood to near-sainthood in my mind and all those ditzy dames throughout the US went along and made her rich beyond her wildest dreams.
It certainly didn’t start with Oprah, but she’s no doubt part of it. The commie left and their useless idiot dupes, the Liberals, have been undermining our culture for a very long time. Think back to the 60s when the drug-crazed hippie, so-called “anti-war” (actually pro-communist) movement got underway. Most were used as naive pawns of the commie left who organized the protests. Same thing goes on today.
