Is "all sex all the time" the real liberal agenda?

David Azerrad works at the conservative Heritage Foundation where he "devotes his time and research to increasing public understanding of America's founding principles." Somewhat curiously, he is also Canadian. He also has some thoughts on the real liberal agenda, as reported by Suzy Khimm:

"Give up your economic freedom, give up your political freedom, and you will be rewarded with license," said Heritage's David Azerrad, describing the reigning philosophy of the left. "It's all sex all the time. It's not just the sex itself-it's the permission to indulge."

But surely this agenda of sexy authoritarianism is going to be hard for The Left to sell to voters, right? Well, no. Because of MMORPGs:

Technology-driven popular culture helped liberals lull the masses into complacency, Azerrad continued, citing iPhones, Google Glass, massive multi-player online video games, and "year-round sports" as among the distractions that have left society vulnerable to political and economic servitude.

The year-round sports thing seems puzzling but, again, Azerrad is Canadian so he's perhaps not accustomed to the idea of non-hockey sports.

Here is the video if you want to watch the whole thing:
