DEI—Division, Hatred and Exclusion

Published

on

Whenever I see these words—diversity, equity, and inclusion—I want to throw up. In their original context, they are magnificent words. Unfortunately, the Left has distorted their meaning to signify the complete opposite of the established definitions. The Democratic Party is misusing them to create division, hatred, and exclusion.

The most successful accomplishment of the Democrats is what author Mark Levin calls the “balkanization” of society. Using their perverted version of diversity, the Democratic Party—under the leadership of Obama—fomented division and hatred after promising just the opposite. Instead of making everyone feel they are part of a unified American social structure, the Obama presidency played into the leftist strategy of “divide and conquer.” Obama’s destructive vision is coming into full bloom under the Biden/Harris administration.

The Left’s objective, Levin says, is to “collapse the existing society” by dividing the people against themselves. Rep. Mo Brooks of Alabama explains diversity in terms of vote getting: “It’s a part of the Democratic Party’s campaign strategy to divide Americans based on skin pigmentation and to try to collect the votes of everybody who is a non-white.”

To progressives, diversity has nothing to do with equality as defined by Dr. Martin Luther King. The Left’s version of diversity means that we must give special privileges to certain protected classes of people—people of color, LGBTQ, women—so they can acquire control over the system at the expense of the majority, which at the moment happens to be white. I call this the “tyranny of the minority.”

Ironically, where you have obedience to diversity, there is no diversity of thought. People who demand attention to diversity really are against viewpoint diversity, also known as free speech. Diversity means “it is great to look different as long as you think the way I do.” Diversity is completely at odds with American values.

When you look behind the curtain, diversity and inclusion are discriminatory and exclusionary. “Diversity in today’s America,” says Scott Greer in No Campus for White Men, “simply means having fewer whites around.” The basis for diversity policy is that certain groups are encouraged to identify themselves as victims of white people. According to African-American author Thomas Sowell, people on the Left like to say, “I am a victim. Therefore, if you do not give in to my demands … you are a hate-filled, evil person.”

My generation of Americans was taught that we should aim for equality. Equal treatment under the law. Equality of opportunity. A colorblind society. That’s what Martin Luther King preached—judge people based on their character, not on their skin color. Things have changed. Now the “woke” crowd says the hell with equality, what we really need is equity.

What is equity? The objective of equity is not equality of opportunity, but rather equality of outcome. Everyone should have the same income, job success, house, neighborhood, etc. In an equitable world, equal justice under the law is anathema. The law must treat people differently. “The only remedy to past discrimination is present discrimination,” argues Ibram X. Kendi in his racist book, How to Be an Anti-Racist. We must give minorities, especially blacks, special treatment in order to even up the scales and compensate for past injustices.

For equity to be achieved, skin color must determine everything. The right kind of skin color is black and brown. White is the wrong color. In case you didn’t know, that’s what your kids are being taught in public schools and elite universities like Harvard, Yale, and Stanford.

The New York Times posted Bret Stephens’ incisive column, titled “The New Racism Won’t Solve the Old Racism.” Stephens writes that the drive for diversity, equity, and inclusion “is insulting to everyone who still believes we should be judged by the content of our character.” Stephens argues that DEI violates the morality of most Americans by redefining of the word equity—which in common English means the quality of being fair and impartial—to mean something closer to the opposite. “It shouldn’t be hard to see that trying to solve the old racism with the new racism will produce only more racism,” Stephens concludes. “Justice is never achieved by turning tables.”

As I explain in The War on Whites, the campaign for equity has spawned an inquisition against white people. Critical race theory, the child of equity, is unapologetically anti-white. An example is provided courtesy of the City of Seattle, which has inaugurated a segregated training session for white city employees to train them to “undo their whiteness” and affirm their “complicity in racism.” Can you imagine if Seattle required all black employees to undo their blackness?

Students in schools across the country are being coerced to confess that they are flawed if they happen to be white. “Being white carries so much of a social stigma that it results in job discrimination and more,” writes Robert Spencer in PJMedia. “Today, to be white is to be evil.”

Are you ready to apologize for your skin color and surrender everything you’ve worked for to other people based solely on their skin color? You better … or else the cancel culture will be coming for you. Everything today is being measured in terms of race. Sadly, it means the subversion of cherished American values. That makes me sick to my stomach.

Will Democrats Do What They Must?

Published

on

On a warm August evening in 1974, President Richard M. Nixon said from the Oval Office that he was resigning, becoming the first president to do so. He confessed that he no longer had “a strong enough political base in the Congress” to finish his term.

Sen. Barry Goldwater, Ariz., the 1964 GOP presidential nominee, was a respected conservative leader in a Senate whose Republican ranks were less conservative than now. In a May 1973 interview with Time magazine, Goldwater had given an early warning, “If it can be proved that he (Nixon) lied, resignation would have to be considered. It would be quick. Everything would be over, ended. It wouldn’t drag out like impeachment.”

At a regular Senate Republican Conference lunch on august 6 of 1974, Goldwater had fumed: “There are only so many lies you can take, and now there has been one too many. Nixon should get his ass out of the White House today!” When he went to see President Nixon, Goldwater confided, “There’s not more than 15 senators for you.” After that showdown, the curtain on President Nixon’s presidency came down three days later.

In this challenging time in our history when President Biden’s competency is under serious question, will Democrat leaders have the courage to do the same? With this report, more Democrats and Independents will be less inclined to vote for Biden. That may very well impact the future of many Democrat politicians whose own election could be impacted if their voting base stays home. After his Wednesday night address, the evidence that Biden is in trouble is plainly obvious.

President Biden’s poll numbers are now at an all time low. The shocking Department of Justice Special Counsel Robert Hur report suggests that Biden should not be indicted because Biden is “a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory” that a jury would be unlikely to convict. The Special Counsel also noted that Biden “willfully retained and disclosed classified materials after his vice presidency when he was a private citizen;” he noted that such actions “present serious risks to national security.” It is clearly a risk for Biden to remain in office.

When President Biden addressed the country after the report was disclosed, he asserted that his memory was fine, and the report confirms that he was not indicted and did nothing wrong. His comments to the press questions were combative and defensive. He took no personal responsibility, blaming his staff for the faulty storage of classified documents. His message was strident and clear-Trump is guilty, and I did nothing wrong.

If he is not competent to stand trial for his actions, how can he be confident enough to remain president? It’s time for a private confrontation by Democrat leadership. If Biden does not listen, it is time to exercise the 25th amendment option to remove him from office.

It is not easy to use that 25th Amendment option. It is even more difficult with only 9 months before a critical national election. Waiting until the Democrat Convention in August leaves little time to right the ship and promote a replacement candidate.

Democrats, do your job to clean out your own house. President Biden is not competent to meet the challenges of our time. Do it now or pay the price in November. As Republicans, we hope you let Biden remain your candidate, but that is selfish. President Biden is our current leader and his decisions impact all of us and a world in turmoil. This isn’t about politics. We can’t afford even eleven more months of a mentally incompetent President.

Claudine Gay, Ex-Harvard President, Will Strike it Rich in 2024

Gay will be a hot ticket at conferences leading up to the 2024 election.

Published

on

If she were a straight white male, Claudine Gay’s career in academia would have been completely finished weeks ago. Along with the presidents of MIT and (then) University of Pennsylvania, as a result of Gay’s anti-Semitism and her disastrous testimony before Congress in December, much of the country was in an uproar.

Pretzel Logic

Days later, when it was discovered that Gay had plagiarized or inappropriately paraphrased and lifted passages from other authors, from a variety of academic works, that would have sealed her fate. In this utterly illogical age of unreason, just the opposite of what ought to happen actually did happen. The Harvard bigwigs backed her!

Gay punched all of the intersectionality buttons: Black, gay, female, and what else you want to throw into the mix. So was she not terminated from her widely visible, high-profile position. Luckily for Harvard, she quit as president! She retains her cushy post as professor, however, at $900,000 per year. And more amazing good fortune likely is in store for her. She may well reap an income bonanza unlike most other college presidents in the U.S. or around the world.

You have to understand that Gay is actually a hero to many factions on the Left. Let’s see … she stood up to the man! She let Congress have it with both barrels. She defended her academic turf. She stuck with what she believes in. She didn’t kowtow to the U.S. pro-Israeli faction. She spoke her truth! My goodness, what a leader, what a noble soul, what a speaker we might have at our convention!

Media Darlings

A variety of questionable figures on the Left have become darlings to groups who lap up their every word. If you think this won’t happen with Ms. Gay, think again.

Unbelievably, the parents of Trayvon Martin became media darlings. Martin was a violent teenager who punched a bus driver in the face, stole money and other items at school, and was suspended from school at the time of his death. He met his fate while pounding George Zimmerman’s head into a sidewalk.

Democratic groups have celebrated the Martins ever since then. Their public appearances were considered to be special. In another minute, with a cracked skull, Zimmerman might have bled out and died, making Martin a murderer.

Honored at the DNC Convention

The parents of Michael Brown also made the rounds and were accorded celebrity status. The super-sized 18-year-old from Ferguson, MO had stolen cigars and choked a small Asian convenience store clerk just 10 minutes before he had tried to wrestle a gun away from an officer sitting in his police car.

Had Brown, whose fingerprints were all over the officer’s car, successfully taken the officer’s gun, Brown, too, might have been a murderer. At the Democrat National Convention attendees couldn’t get enough of Brown’s noble mother. Sadly, the city of Ferguson, MO, paid Brown’s family an extorted $1.5 million, largely due to fears of more mob violence.

If parents who’ve raised career criminals are celebrated, what are Claudine Gay’s prospects?

Prospects Aplenty

Presumably, she has no violent incidents in her past. Prior to her resignation as Harvard president she may have already, privately signed on with one of the top speaker’s bureaus from either in Boston, New York, or Washington, D.C. Bureaus value having partisan speakers in their lineup when they can book such individuals at large conferences and conventions. Gay will be a hot ticket leading up to the 2024 election.

She will be featured as the head liner at many conferences.

How much can she glean from such appearances? The floor is 20 to 40 thousand per outing, but 50 to 75 thousand is within reach, of which the bureau takes 25%. At that level of earnings for a speech, she could easily exceed another $900,000 by the end of the year. Will you earn $1,800,000 in the next ten years?

Knowing No Bounds

As one audience after another offers her special treatment, her already outsized, over-privileged ego will know no bounds, and all of her past sins will be long forgotten. The groups to whom she speaks will consider themselves to have done their part in promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Gay’s intersectionality seals the deal, so by any measure, it’s a win-win-win (bureau, speaker, and audience) for Leftists.

To those on the Right, such developments are sickening, but we’ve come to accept that this is the world as it is currently. With all the devastation and destruction promulgated by the Biden administration, we have much bigger fish to fry.
