Progressives unending push for greater diversity and inclusion has resulted in the exclusion of conservatives from campus, the removal or destruction of historical monuments across the fruited plain, all-black dorms at several universities, all-black graduation ceremonies, and even the first ever all-female space-walk. Traditional white males have been banished to the ash-heap of history. Can’t get more inclusive and diverse than that!
I have no problem with the all-female space-walk, of course, but the drive to destroy conservatives and relegate men and Christians to the status of second-class citizens in the name of diversity and inclusion boggles a sane person’s mind. “Toxic masculinity” (meaning traditional male roles and behavior) is practically considered a hate crime. Males are routinely portrayed in movies and television as either cold, calculating predators or bumbling, incompetent idiots. The only males that progressives approve of are metrosexuals and those who identify as females, not that there’s much difference between the two. Males who say they are female are welcomed into women’s locker rooms and bathrooms. If Harvey Weinstein had just claimed to be female in recent years, he might have avoided being tossed in the slammer.
Where does it end? I can see a time in the near future when there is an IHOP run exclusively by African-American lesbians or a Burger King employing only gay mulatto men. “I’ve got your Whopper right here! Want fries with that?”
Graduation ceremonies will likely be broken down even further in the fractured future. Wednesday night bisexual Norwegian transvestites will receive their degrees, while Thursday night will exclusively honor male Muslim graduates named Muhammed.
So much for e Pluribus Unum. But this is all by design. Progressives utilize class warfare and create a sense of victimhood, despair and entitlement. They divide to conquer. As Saul Alinsky said, “The despair is there; now it’s up to us to go in and rub raw the sores of discontent, galvanize them for radical social change.” Change that will bring them power. For progressives are never happy unless they are controlling the lives of others.
