Righties often derisively refer to protests as "begging," but it's not.

This is what begging looks like.
In previous deplatformings, people asked Ben Shapiro to speak up; he did not do so, seeing no benefit in it.

The Crowder demonetization alarms Shapiro, and his response is... to ask other people, advertisers and platforms, to speak up for him.

How do you think that's gonna go?
The operating phrase Righties need to learn is "actual material loss."

You cannot bend people to your will unless them *not* heeding your will involves the prospect of an actual material loss.

For politicians, votes. For businesses, usually money.
Lefties build structures to facilitate threats of actual material loss. Righties do not build these structures, bc they do not know how, bc their establishment has failed to teach them, bc the establishment wants different things from the base & does not want the base empowered.
Jonah Goldberg is concerned at the Righty embrace of statism.

Well, Jonah, maybe at some point in the past 30 years establishment conservatives should have trained their people to build power directly in ways *that don't involve the fucking state.*
But no: Righties don't know where power comes from other than the state, because they haven't been trained, and the structures aren't there.

The Righty establishment made sure the power of the state is the only power Righties understand, and now is shocked they want to use it.
