DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION HARM

Diversity and Inclusion Harm

In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians and race hustlers, it’s not long before the magical words “diversity” and “inclusiveness” drop from their lips. Racial minorities are the intended targets of this sociological largesse, but women are included, as well. This obsession with diversity and inclusion is in the process of leading the nation to decline in a number of areas. We’re told how it’s doing so in science, in an article by Heather Mac Donald, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute, titled “How Identity Politics Is Harming the Sciences” (tinyurl.com/y9g8k9ne).

Mac Donald says that identity politics has already taken over the humanities and social sciences on American campuses. Waiting in the wings for a similar takeover are the STEM fields — science, technology, engineering and math. In the eyes of the diversity and inclusiveness czars, the STEM fields don’t have a pleasing mixture of blacks, Hispanics and women. The effort to get this “pleasing mix” is doing great damage to how science is taught and evaluated, threatening innovation and American competitiveness.

Universities and other institutions have started watering down standards and requirements in order to attract more minorities and women. Some of the arguments for doing so border on insanity. A math education professor at the University of Illinois wrote that “mathematics itself operates as Whiteness.” She says that the ability to solve algebra and geometry problems perpetuates “unearned privilege” among whites. A professor at Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education published an article in a peer-reviewed journal positing that academic rigor is a “dirty deed” that upholds “white male heterosexual privilege,” adding that “scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing.”

RESURRECTION OF MARX

 – The Washington Times – Tuesday, May 15, 2018
EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE:  The Democratic Socialists of America reports that membership has grown from about 5,000 to 35,000 since the 2016 elections. The number of chapters has swelled from 40 to 181.

Cultural influence has matched political power.

Newspapers and magazines published paeans to Marx leading up to his 200th birthday on May 5. A New York Times op-ed exclaimed, “Happy birthday, Karl Marx. You were right!” Teen Vogue informed its adolescent readership, “The communist scholar’s ideas are more prevalent than you might realize.”

You would think any political theory that resulted in the deaths of 100 million people would have been discredited by now, but socialism is back in style.

The bicentennial of Karl Marx’s birth has coincided with a groundswell of support for the communist theorist’s ideas. Dozens of Democrats running for local office have embraced the socialist label, and national party leaders are advocating bigger government as they jockey for position on the left wing of the party.

Marion Smith, executive director of the nonpartisan Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, said both parties should be able to get behind opposition to Marxism.

“It’s important that neither of America’s two major parties embrace the failed ideology of communism,” Mr. Smith said. “We have 100 years of proof — Marxism doesn’t work.”

FEAR OF THE LEFT: THE MOST POWERFUL FORCE IN AMERICA TODAY

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

 

Fear of the Left: The Most Powerful Force in America Today
Dennis Prager
Posted: May 01, 2018 12:01 AM
The opinions expressed by columnists are their own and do not represent the views of Townhall.com.
The dominant force in America and many other Western countries today is fear of the left.
This is a result of the fact that the most dynamic religion of the past 100 years has been neither Christianity nor Islam. It has been leftism. Whoever does not recognize this does not understand the contemporary world.

Leftism — in its incarnations, such as Marxism, communism and socialism; expressed through egalitarianism, environmentalism and feminism; in its denigration of capitalism and Western civilization, especially America and Israel; in its supplanting of Christianity and Judaism; through its influence on Christianity and Judaism; in its celebration of race; and in its replacing of reason with romanticism — has almost completely taken over the news and entertainment media and institutions of education.

There is a largely (though not entirely) nonviolent reign of ideological terror in America. In almost every area of life, people fear antagonizing the left.

Last week, before my speech at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a man employed by the university (I will not say in what department) walked over to me, looked around to see whether anyone was watching and whispered in my ear, “I’m a conservative.”

This happens just about everywhere I speak. People whisper — yes, whisper — that they are conservative or they support Trump. The last time I experienced people looking around to check whether they were seen speaking to me was with dissidents in the Soviet Union.

THE REIGN OF THE ELITES IS CRUMBLING IN EUROPE, TOO

Thursday, April 5th, 2018

 

ON THE RUN EVERYWHERE  – THE REIGN OF THE ELITES IS CRUMBLING IN EUROPE, TOO
 – – Wednesday, March 21, 2018

ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The natives are restless everywhere, and they’re frightening the elites. The political parties of the social democrats, and even the Socialists, are crumbling all across Europe. A new version of class war is shaping a new kind of politics, and the implications are worldwide.

Trying to find clues to what’s ahead for America by examining the entrails of European politics is a fool’s errand. Europe, even with its treasures of arts, literature and music, is after all what the first settlers escaped from.

Barack Obama and his friends set out to “transform” America into a version of the European welfare state, but the republic was saved, at least for a while, by the bell that tolled in November 2016.

The Trump phenomenon, with all its populist bells and whistles, echoes across Europe. The Socialist Party in France was the governing majority only two years ago, and last year it won only 7 percent of the vote. The party has all but disappeared in the parliament. Germany’s prevailing Social Democrats fell to winning only 20 percent in elections this year, and the Democratic Party in Italy didn’t do much better.

The story is similar in Poland, Hungary and the Czech State, with echoes in Spain, the Netherlands and Scotland, where liberal, leftist, and progressive (pick a label) parties were kings of the mountain only yesterday.

It’s not difficult to discern the reasons why, observes the perceptive John O’Sullivan in National Review, “because so many agonized social democrats have already done so.” The liberal parties, much like the Democrats in the United States, abandoned their base among those who take pride in their blue-collar origins. “The crumbling happened,” he writes, “because social democrats, who were increasingly progressive middle-class intellectuals, usually working in the public sector, lost interest in blue-collar issues and were actively hostile to the conservative social values — patriotism, hard work, church — that appealed to workers as much as to the [property class]. Eventually the workers noticed and began to drift off to other parties.”

The socialist parties, like the Democrats and other liberals (or “progressives”) here in America, forgot who they were, where they came from and where they promised to go. Extreme environmentalism, radical feminism, undisciplined immigration and aggressive gay rights replaced the values and interests of the European working class. David Goodheart, a reformed leftist and a prominent British journalist and author, identifies this phenomenon as a division of the “somewheres,” locally rooted workers, and the “anywheres,” rootless professionals at home wherever they go. The disaffected “somewheres” were replaced in the blue-collar base by those gays, feminists, minorities and highly educated professionals. So far there aren’t enough of them to make up for the shrinkage.

This collapse of the social-democratic parties seemed like manna from heaven for parties on the European right, or at least a gift from the left. The Conservatives in Britain, for example, celebrated what they reckoned was their “permanent victory.” But they had not reckoned with the iron law, first identified in the United States but a law that applies everywhere, that “nothing recedes like success.”

Decisive victories in national elections in the United States were confidently said at the time to have buried the Democrats forever after George McGovern lost 49 states in 1972, and again after Walter Mondale carried only his home state of Minnesota in 1984. Mr. Mondale would have lost that but for the kindness of Ronald Reagan, who declined to make a late appearance in Minneapolis that his pollsters said would push him over the top. With the election won he wouldn’t embarrass a man in his home state. In the event he lost the state by only 10,000 votes. No presidential candidate is likely ever again to have the opportunity to win every state.

The French political scientist Pierre Manent sees the turmoil in loyalties and long-standing ties as pitting “populist demagogy of the left against the fanaticism of the center” in a struggle that will only become more bitter. The center, or the elites, will try to keep out the barbarian horde but the voters will keep trying to go around the establishment center, and will finally break it down.

The elites everywhere regard themselves as much aggrieved. They think themselves entitled to control everything because they’re wiser, smarter, of a higher morality, and thus entitled. The barbarian horde everywhere is not always right, but the elites in Europe, as in the United States, are learning that the horde will be accommodated, the hard way or the easy way

VIDEO – AHMAD AND HIS THREE WIVES IN GERMANY

Friday, March 2nd, 2018

 

VIDEO   – AHMAD AND HIS THREE WIVES  – A TV  INTERVIEW WITH A MUSLIM FAMILY IN GERMANY 

GATES OF VIENNA
VIDEO

Last week we posted about Ahmad, a Syrian “refugee” who was permitted to bring two wives and numerous children with him to Germany. The whole polygamous family is being housed and maintained under congenial conditions, at the expense of the state.

Below is a longer video about the fecund Ahmad and his culture-enriching brood. Anton, who translated the video for subtitles, includes this introduction:

“ As far as emancipation is concerned, the refugee wave has not brought only progress to Germany.[1].

“Instead, our reporter Andrew Musa found the Syrian family living in a form of mini-harem…. apparently without legal difficulties, although so-called polygamy is prohibited in this country.”[2]

1. resent also that SPIEGEL TV suggests there is any progress whatsoever. There isn’t.
2. Any polygamy is not “so-called” as the TV presenter suggests. It is polygamy. And polygamy is illegal.
3. They headed straight for Germany past many safe countries. They entered illegally.
4. Families of this size get around 13K USD tax free every month. Free maternal care. Free child care. Free medical care. Free housing. Free schooling. Free TV. Free telephone. Free everything.
 

Costing the tax payer around 150K-180K USD NETT!!! 

They can even travel home on welfare to Syria to visit relatives. No problem.

ALL ILLEGALLY.

Note: The average GROSS German wage is around 41K USD per annum.

Many thanks to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
