Tolerable Diversity, Mandatory Unity

     That shibboleth word “diversity” just might have had its day. The myriad examples of what happens when a government attempts to compel “diversity” upon an institution or a society make it fairly plain that the notion is toxic. Resistance to such compulsion is mounting and will soon become insuperable.      It’s been the case …

A Voice Of Sanity

     In publishing this transcript of a recent speech by Dutch activist Eva Vlaardingerbroek, Maura Dowling has done America and Europe a tremendous service. Please read it all.      “Diversity” has never meant what its shouters claim it to mean. It means the elimination of the white race. Note that no majority-black country is being …

From Tolerable To Intolerable…

     …can be a very short journey indeed. Whether it’s possible depends on whether the State decides the protection and promotion of some human aberration would serve its interests. Buckle your seat belt and fold your tray-tables; this ride could get bumpy. ***      I’ve ranted before about how the politicization of transgenderism has transformed …

Constraints

     [A short story for you today. This one will be rather pointed, I fear. It was inspired by an essay I read about an hour ago. That piece, which I’ll link at the end of this one, harmonized so perfectly with my own convictions and the process by which I reached them that I …

Is it just me

Or is there anyone else out there who reads an article like this and thinks “Nothing I can do about it. I hope they hit D.C.” So what is to be done? Well, we can vote the bums out, but even if we do, all too many Republicans are just as squeamish as Democrats about …

The Diversity Hire strikes again

She’s either dumber than a wet sack of hammers, or she’s evil. There are no other options. In Monday’s oral arguments for Murthy v. Missouri, Jackson appeared to be skeptical that the government could not censor social media posts in “the most important time periods.”“ My biggest concern is that your view has the First Amendment …

“Let The Bodies Hit The Floor!”

     Nothin’ wrong with me…      Nothin’ wrong with me…      Nothin’ wrong with me…      Nothin’ wrong with me…      Oh fudge…who do I think I’m kidding? ***      Courtesy of Ace’s long and detailed piece of yesterday, I’ve only just become aware of what he’s styled “GamerGate 2.0.” You may recall the original …

What Must Be Said

     If we can’t bring back the idea of personal agency and responsibility for one’s actions, along with a societal moral code of right and wrong, we are doomed. — Weird Dave at AoSHQ      Bravo. It cannot be said too often or too loudly. But note that the Left, principally through its “DEI” and …

Yes, they really are that stupid and evil.

The government thinks that ARs can shoot 600 rounds a second. And one of the Democrat idiotic trained barking seals on the court thinks that’s totally wrong. It’s 800 rounds a second, according to that diversity hire who can’t define a woman. Well, no wonder people are so afraid of the AR platform! That wimpy …

True dat

I found that on this post on Twitter. Or X. Twix? Whatever you want to call it now, but someone has a video that was taken in Sweden where a blonde liberal female reporter tried to show just how wonderful all that vibrancy and diversity was. And, well…. it didn’t turn out well for them. …

It Doesn’t Matter If It Succeeds

     Just yesterday, I wrote about the egregious commercial sin of defining others’ desires and preferences as “wrong.” While it is something we’ve all done from time to time, a commercial concern can’t afford it. You cannot sell dead cats to the Board of Sanitation. Similarly, you cannot sell “diversity” to an audience that’s looking …

“Our Standards? Can He Drive The Baseline? Hit A Three-Pointer?”

     I sometimes lament how little of the news I manage to cover each day. There’s certainly plenty going on. But I have an actual life – the C.S.O. reminds me about that frequently – a home, animals to tend, and miscellaneous other things that deserve some attention. So I miss a lot.      However, …

“Galting” Or Despair?

     You cannot do wrong without suffering wrong. — Ralph Waldo Emerson      For many years, the “work ethic” – i.e., the idea that work is worthy and will be rewarded according to its merits – dominated Americans’ thinking on workplace behavior and employer / employee relations. Granted, the idea wasn’t reflected in the behavior …

Dispatches From The War On Normality

     The guiding principle is only this: If it’s normal and healthful, they hate it and want to destroy it:      A lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court by one Denver Public Schools father alleging his two children have been denied their First Amendment rights to have a “straight pride” flag in school may stand …

Things To Think About (UPDATED)

     First, an old commercial:      Getty made more than one such commercial. (I think I have the full set.) They embedded the same premises. Whether they stimulated much thought is unclear. But the message is not.      Now a picture:      Reflect on that for a moment. Freedom must perforce include the freedom to …

Pride, “Pride,” and ***PRIDE!!***

     There are days when I feel as if I’ve undertaken the vocation of pointing out the obvious to people too distracted to notice it. Then I remember the all-important truth I learned so long ago: In Practical Usage, “Obvious” Really Means “Overlooked.”      Shortly after that, it occurs to me that I’m not the …

The Sharpest Questions

     [T]he best tool the radical skeptic has is the sharp question—“Why?” “What for?” “When?” “What do you mean?” “Who?” These are terrifying questions, in a way, considering how seldom they are answered.      [Arthur Herzog, The B.S. Factor]      Are you confused by recent developments? Do you have a problem with the use of …

Is This What We Have Hoped For?

     “Upon occasion, the annelid completes a circuit.” — Piers Anthony      When your enemy overplays his hand, it’s time to rejoice…and to counterattack: Major League Baseball is learning this. Both leagues, too. Of course, the groomers are unhappy. Colleges will soon find out. Public schools, too. Parents are mobilizing. And the alphabet-people are really …

Dialogues To Come

     If there are any left-liberal moonbats in your orbit, you’re bound to have a conversation with them, sooner or later, about “diversity.” There’s no way around it. They worship the word though they shudder and shy away from the reality. But even as they put their homes on the trading block in an effort …
