How Do You Dismantle an Atomic-Era Narrative?

She certainly fooled me: “Nikki Haley Is a Racist White Man. Or Something,” Jesse Hathaway quips at NewsReal:

This is just another example of the paradox that can not be solved by progressive thought—if one accepts, as an a priori principle that conservatism is racism, then how can one explain Nikki Haley, Allen West, Tim Scott, Ken Blackwell, Thomas Sowell or any of the growing number of, as Jones phrases it, “non-white” conservatives that shouldn’t—but, frustratingly, do—exist.

Or as the Christian Science Monitor describes Lila Rose:

“The ultimate goal of this new generation of right-wing muckrakers is the overthrow of the perceived liberal-leaning mainstream media narrative on touchstone political issues such as guns, racism, and abortion. Rose casts her work in light of the civil-rights movement of the 1960s, and her videos are the tinder for peaceful social insurrection.”

I’d say it’s a rather strong perception these days.
