It is certainly noteworthy that Michelle Wolf’s abortion-celebrating Netflix show was canceled after mere months.
Noteworthy. But not celebratory. Because if her failure feels like a victory to you, it is clear you have no idea what game the culture is actually playing nor how to keep score. Wolf was nothing to a progressive cause that is more than willing to lose in one sense – see the financial ruin of many sectors of journalism – in order to win in another. The Left increasingly trades in propaganda that ensures there’s always another Wolf lurking around every corner.
See, when you are a progressive iconoclast, your entire mission is to break things. And as long as more of the culture gets broken, you win and you win big.
It is less a sign of failure that Wolf’s show was canceled than a victory that she was given a show to begin with. A total nobody not very long ago, she got her 15 minutes of fame by crassly attempting to humiliate White House press secretary Sarah Sanders in front of the nation.
And Netflix – a primary purveyor of culture – swooned at the carnage. Giving Wolf a spotlight was a woke middle finger to all the same people whom Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube like to troll. It also added yet one more layer of inevitability to the progressive march of history that insists you either kill the babies, confuse the genders, and harass the bakers — or you will be made to care.
