…Today, America is governed by left-wing elites who are swiftly losing all touch with reality…. This was on full display in the White House when President Joe Biden met with a small group of historians to discuss America’s future. Instead of addressing things that matter to everyday Americans,…the scholars spent their time comparing Trump supporters to fascists….

Professor Sean Wilentz…says I attack the left’s distorted vision of reality to “distract attention from the abuses of corrupt politicians and plutocrats by manufacturing imaginary threats both at home and abroad.”…This cisgender white male reeks of privilege. He and his fellow liberals’ peddling of imaginary threats is exactly what Republicans like me are fighting against…. 

[P]eople like Wilentz…are intensifying a genuine crisis of partisan polarization and eroding social trust by suggesting that conservatives are planning “an authoritarian takeover” of the United States. If you’re looking for authoritarianism, look no further than what happened under the watch of Anthony Fauci and his allies in the elite establishment….

Democrat elites think they know what’s best for the country…. But hardworking men and women have something that is absent in New York, San Francisco, and Washington: common sense…. And so long as they have common sense, they will support politicians who share their values and stand up for basic truths….

There is, and there always will be, a place for scholarship and education in politics. But history teaches that with the right mixture of power and bad ideas, elites will almost certainly lead society astray…. In this case, I’ll wear criticism and slander from Princeton with a badge of honor, just like I do criticism from the regimes in Beijing, Moscow, Caracas, and Havana.
