Exactly.Personally I bring up the RR on occasion for 2 reasons:
1. To counter doomerposting by point out that Left/Right cultural dominance doesn't last forever. The MM/RR was born out of the New Left imploding in the 70s and Conservatives dominated American culture for the next two decades only to completely collapse themselves during Obama's term.
2. To shut up smug Right Wingers who conveniently forget when their side was playing moral guardian in both the 80s and 50s * In-fact modern day woke culture has a lot in common with McCarthyism right down to it's extrajudicial moral committees and blacklists for wrongthink * .
I get the feeling a lot of the people defending the old Religious Right and advocating for a return to (((traditionalism))) are edgy Zoomers who were too young to remember the Religious Right.
Or they're Late Millennials and Early Zoomers who grew up in the Blue States (or are Eurofags) and never really saw the fundies firsthand, so it seems like it was an entirely overhyped thing since towards the last stretch of the RR's dominance in the Bush years, they pretty much were a paper tiger barely hanging on.
In a weird way, the Woke Left is like a grotesque inverted parody of McCarthyism. There were actual communists infiltrating upper echelons of American society (Alger Hiss, Julius Rosenberg, the academics of the 60's) even if McCarthy was a paranoid loon, while Woke Leftism is looking for invisible fascists/capitalists/white supremacists/incels/"chuds" that never existed (or are created by the Woke Left's own insanity) and are exalting far-left ideology.
