+title: This isn't new
+published: 2022-08-30 18:20:00
+Often when people think about the culture war, they think of it as starting in 2016. Trump and Brexit occurring at the same time
+caused the spontaneous generation of thousands of blue haired libtards, like rats on a ship. This is obviously not the case, for
+if it were I wouldn't be writing this blogpost. All this is far from new, in fact it has been going on for generations, the
+original instigators of which are now either dead, or drinking their last meals in a decrepit nursing home. Because I am too lazy
+to provide actual evidence, I will simply point to old Simpsons clips, and their supposed predictive quality. "Homer Badman" is
+from 1994, wherein Homer is accused of sexual assault by a college student, and the media whips up a frenzy against him.
+Sounds eerily familiar to today doesn't it? Only if it were written today it would be called "Homer gets cancelled", and the
+college student in question would have blue hair. 1996's "Homerpalooza" has him accused of a hate crime after wearing a
+Rastafarian at a concert, once again similar to today, where old people's once socially acceptable non-malicious actions are
+treated as being racist. The writers of the show weren't trying to predict the future with these episodes,
+they were satirising the present day, as with every single other episode.
+For a more serious example, we shall look at education reforms. Many see the [removing of Shakespeare](https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2022/08/27/universities-drop-chaucer-shakespeare-decolonisation-takes-root/)
+and Chaucer from the curriculum as another modern day left wing attack on our national identity. This is not a new thing, as
+anyone who attended school in the past 20 years will know. Whilst Shakespeare is still covered......
+I personally had to study a play written by a communist, where the first live performances
+were in the Soviet Union as nowhere could be found in the UK.
