Political pundits and fact-checkers have debated and cross-examined President Biden’s weekend address to the country but it is comments from Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, during her Republican Party rebuttal, that might have an impact on the days and weeks ahead.

“While you reap the consequences of their failures,” Sanders told the American public Sunday night, “the Biden administration seems more interested in woke fantasies than the hard reality Americans face every day.”

Most people just want to live a life of freedom and peace, the GOP governor continued, “but we are under attack in a left-wing culture war we didn’t start and never wanted to fight.”

AFN readers surely know that is true: From public libraries and public schools to corporate cubicles and college campuses, the Left has been attacking institutions like an all-out war. 

The "woke fantasies" the Arkansas governor mentioned are easy to pinpoint, too, like urging Americans to buy an electric vehicle because they are struggling to afford gas. 

Gary Bauer, a 40-year veteran of America’s culture war, says he is still pondering one line from Sanders’ speech: When she pointed out she is the first female governor in Arkansas.

“And she said that the president was the first male president of the United States, who had caved in to the woke Left, that claims that they don't even know what a woman is,” Bauer recalled.

Daily Wire commentator Matt Walsh mocked the Far Left with his “What is a Woman?” documentary, which exposed academics and street protesters entrapped by their ideology, but the public saw the true depth of that wokeness when Ketanji Jackson Brown, now a U.S. Supreme Court justice, said she couldn’t define “woman” at her Senate hearing.

“I’m not a biologist,” she told Sen. Marsha Blackburn.

Bauer says Gov. Sanders summarized the current culture and political fight well after Americans heard President Biden’s version of reality Sunday night.  

“It's a choice between normalcy and insanity or craziness,” he tells AFN. “And that is the key thing the Republican Party needs to get their arms around.”

If the Republican Party can find the courage to speak out, and to not cower from criticism, voters will support the GOP in a “landslide,” Bauer predicts.
