Is Ignoring The Other Side A Winning Strategy For The Left?

This week, my company, The Daily Wire, premiered a blockbuster new documentary starring Matt Walsh. Titled "What Is A Woman?", the documentary investigates radical gender theory and its peculiar hold on the elites in our society — and how the insane proposition that men can become women and vice versa has become so well-accepted that even normal Americans now live in fear of questioning it. The film has been the single largest success in the history of The Daily Wire; hundreds of thousands of Americans have subscribed to view it. Yet Rotten Tomatoes, the review aggregator for film and television, has not a single traditional review of the film.

That's because, according to the legacy and entertainment media, the film doesn't exist. When the Daily Wire press team sent out invitations to reviewers to watch the film — knowing, of course, that the vast majority of reviewers are Left-leaning and would undoubtedly pan the film — reviewers began responding with insults and declarations of preemptive hatred. "Hard pass," wrote one. "Unsubscribe," wrote another. "Lose my email. Forget my name." A third reviewer, this one a member of GALECA: The Society of LGBTQ Entertainment Critics, wrote, "Hard f—-ing pass. I won't give that transphobic bigot a platform on my site. Never email me again!" Thus, the current Rotten Tomatoes audience score for the film is 96%; the reviewer score remains empty.

Such denial of the mere existence of a countervailing argument is a common feature of the Left these days. The idea is that by pretending opposition to bizarre ideas doesn't exist, you can mainstream those bizarre ideas. Thus, "everyone believes" that climate change is not merely a byproduct of human activity, but that it threatens life on earth; to deny the latter proposition is tantamount to Holocaust denial. "Everyone believes" that America is systemically racist; to do otherwise is to mark yourself as a bigot.

*But what if everybody doesn't believe such propositions?........(Snip)
