  •  Serwer seems to accept that traditionalism is (8+ / 0-)

    somehow a defense, in and of itself.

    It's not: some traditions are now being seen in a more fair light than in the socially hierarchical past: extreme bigotry, bias and class warfare - primarily perpetrated by far-right conservatives and accepted by much of society as general momentum of any cultural movements that take ground and are based on accepting mutual fears.  To take sides against such values in public would make you an enemy.  And, as kos points out, we've seen how enemies are treated when far-rightists - expressing traditional values - are unencumbered by legal protections for the oppressed parties in their sights.

    I didn't know much about this fellow beforehand, but he doesn't seem terribly good at seeing past his current contacts or even the present day with much context.  Or, perhaps he just likes to sound smartly contrarian.
