    So it’s often said that politics is downstream from culture. I agree and that’s why I think there is a strategy for engaging in these culture wars rather than simply focusing on legislation. People are motivated by cultural moments and you can tap into that to generate wins at the ballot box. From there most people aren’t going to care what Section 34bc of Bill 4853 says, but if they feel the politician is on their side culturally they will give them the benefit of the doubt on most legislation. It also makes those you should oppose easier to spot by forcing them into defending absurd cultural positions. Such as “MS-13 are people too and you ignorant fools need to respect that or else Nazism!” Doesn’t mean it’s always a smart move to force these issues.
