This analogy is wrong.

The better one might be the Polish cavalry charging against German tanks
in September 1939. Impeccable in style, even scoring a micro-victory,
but no match to the forces just unleashed.

Morlock came closer than horses against Panzers. At least the Polish cavalry were bravely defending their country, however ineptly. This lady is like a courtier who uses the manners of her class to disguise that it was she who farted during the king's speech. It was a sly put down for the benefit of cultural insiders and was never intended to achieve anything politically. In that she probably succeeded.
