Brown University, that estimable fount of higher education, has decided to promote “racial reconciliation” by offering segregated events to its black and female Muslim students. The school came up with this brilliant idea after the violent clashes between opposing protesters in Charlottesville this past August.
Reconciliation by segregation?
Reconciliation: “A change from a state of enmity and fragmentation to one of harmony and fellowship.”
Segregation: “The action or state of setting someone or something apart from other people or things or being set apart.”
Attention, Brown: this is like screwing for abstinence, going crazy for mental health, or espousing genocide to achieve a tolerant, non-violent world. It’s akin to eating deep-fried cheese curds to promote healthy diets, or voting for Maxine Waters to bring dignity and reason back to our body politic.
This move by Brown is entirely in keeping with today’s outright celebration of insanity and perversion. The left’s strategy is to knowingly- and brazenly- accuse non-leftists of what they themselves are all about. This shouldn’t be news to anyone, but, tragically, is only known by a relative few who actually pay attention to history. This is straight out of the communist playbook, and Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”
There is a word for the removal of ambiguity, for attempting to make something clear: disambiguation. I myself try to be a disambiguationist. So do Dennis Prager, Ben Shapiro, Rush Limbaugh, Jordan Peterson and Mark Steyn, among others.
Leftists strive to do the opposite, as if they could turn disambiguation into the world’s first one-word oxymoron. They claim to want to clarify things, while doing everything in their considerable power to muddy things up. This is why they engage in euphemism fests and accuse their opponents of engaging in exactly the same behavior that they so enjoy. In their perfect world, disambiguation does exactly the opposite of what its intended to do, much like many members of the Republican Party.
