Business Insider's Josh Barro picks up where David Brooks left off on the culture war food metaphor beat this week.
This week, Business Insider senior editor Josh Barro followed with his own lamentation on the left's "hamburger problem. I guess "don't be a condescending asshole" is now a legitimate political strategy that all Democrats - politicians, pundits and civilians alike - can employ to convince their Republican and independent friends and families to vote for Democratic policies, which according to Barro are actually winning, unlike Democrats themselves. "As I see it, Democrats' problem isn't that they're on the wrong side of policy issues," he writes. "It's that they're too ready to bother too many ordinary people about too many of their personal choices, all the way down to the hamburgers they eat." I have no idea if Barro is right about burgers. He's certainly the expert on the topic, while I haven't eaten one in 15 years, a fact I usually try to downplay as much as possible. In my experience as a person who eats every day in a Red State, not in Manhattan, meat lovers are way more eager to unload their unsolicited meat feelings onto me than the other way around. But Barro is wrong about the fundamental premise of his "be less annoying" thesis: that liberals are now the morally judgmental ones and conservatives aren't - at least not anymore, now that Donald Trump is president. Prius divide - and the biggest culture wars revolve around spats between in-laws over the fat content at the Fourth of July cookout, homeowners' association brawls over gas-powered leaf blower use and school controversies over insensitive Halloween costumes. ("[A]nything but blackface" should be acceptable, Barro suggests, to my predictable confusion and amazement.) But Barro's claim that "in the past few years, conservatives have made a strategic retreat from telling people what to do in their personal lives" is pretty disingenuous: But as Barro sees it, a vote for Trump is a vote against manners snobs, not a divide between cultural progressives and those who feel their cultural power is waning because of gains made by others. Americans "have come to favor same-sex marriage by 30 points," Barro writes, omitting how much work it took on the part of cultural advocates and activists, including two landmark Supreme Court cases, to make same-sex marriage legal in all 50 states. Does Barro really believe that two years after Obergefell, conservatives in the hold-out states have just forgotten how much distaste they have for LGBT "lifestyles? "And universal background checks to buy guns are even more popular than that," Barro continues. So the NRA was totally out of touch with its constituency when it released that "clenched fist of truth" ad last month? That was just a good old-fashioned raspberry to the schoolmarms on the Left? Barro does admit that the wedge that won't budge is abortion rights, "a closely divided issue on which public opinion has barely shifted since Roe v. Wade was decided in 1973," but he downplays the significance of the issue for actual women who live in states where Republicans continue to work tirelessly to restrict our rights.
