So far, at least.

It’s from Toby Young, a former British pratfall journalist who’s become a charter school advocate in the UK. The entire article is worth a read (and I urge you to do just that) and illuminates exactly how much Big Left hates apostates.

But the quote is so important in so many other areas:

In today’s world, actually doing things to aid the disadvantaged counts less than making dumb jokes. If you’ve done the latter, you’re no longer allowed to do the former. As Young puts it, “Virtue-signaling is more important than being virtuous.”

I’m going to remember this (to the extent that I didn’t already think it) every time I (accidentally) watch The Daily Show, (inadvertently) catch a bit of Chelsea Handler, watch the ELCA-coiffed criminal-safety protesters gamboling about the Capitol sputtering their half-understood nonsense, or watching collect kids barking at the moon over the threat other peoples’ free speech poses them.
