In his new YouTube video, Bill Whittle argues that progressives are "cultural parasites." Similar to the fictional alien in Alien or the real parasitoid wasps, progressives use and kill their cultural hosts in order to reproduce. They inject their ideas into a beloved character or story, then they consume this cultural product from the inside out before moving to the next victim. Whittle gives several examples including "woke" Ghostbusters, which replaced the original male team with females, and a gay Captain America I'd never heard of. I think there's some truth in what Whittle claims. But this practice of altering and repurposing cultural products is nothing new. And it has the potential of producing an improvement on a flawed original, despite popularity. In my view the main problem is actually institutional censorship, when the original is systematically cancelled from existence and fades from memory, and then a truly parasitic version becomes the new host organism.
