Yes, things are becoming more clear. The establishment types took credit for various improvements over the years, but these were mostly due to technology and productivity gains that they did more to hinder than foster. But thing that they were doing and their effects were getting too noticeable. Then Trump won.
After which, these types more fully exposed themselves. Be it their defense of their policies, or becoming generally unhinged, people noticed. On the victim front, they had run out of victims to milk, so they had to either manufacture fake ones, or open new frontiers like transgender children. Feminists were part of all this. Searching for problems, mansplaning became big, as did the enormously vague toxic masculinity. And don’t forget the micro-aggressions.
So during the last four years, they all doubled down. Sure, it might have kept some from leaving the reservation, but the sheer craziness of it all probably hasn’t done their cause (or them personally) any long term good. Half-baked silliness that they can’t reasonably define, much less describe the actual impact of, just isn’t effective, especially when people see the reality of the world.
Remember the illogical women from the last post? Doubling down on something that cannot hold water like they have done is a bad bet. Though it makes them feel good in the short run
