Think Freely Media presents Common Sense with Paul Jacob

Re-Segregation

It is hard not to miss the ideological left’s inconsistency regarding “diversity”: demanding diversity of race and gender, they enforce a monoculture that somehow cannot tolerate intellectual and political competition.

We see this in 

  • higher education, dominated by left-of-center professors and administrators; 
  • in the news media, overwhelmingly filled with Democrats; and 
  • even in the corporate world, especially in HR Departments.

That some areas of life are filled with one type of person, and others with a different kind, should shock no one. But the intolerance of this? It has recently become extra extreme on the left: De-platforming, physical attacks on free speech, censuring and firing employees who dare offer facts inconvenient for progressivism. When a senior Facebook engineer attempted to bring in tolerance and diversity, what should have been a non-story received national attention.*

It amounts to a new segregationism. 

People are segregating more and more in their communities based on income and culture (see Bill Bishop’s The Big Sort) — despite many of these same self-segregators support for Martin Luther King’s civil rights agenda of de-segregation. 

Another current trend is shunning. When it was discovered, the other day, that the In-N-Out burger chain had contributed $25,000 to the California Republican Party, the Twitterverse cooked up something special: “#BoycotInNOut — let Trump and his cronies support these creeps” . . . well, that gem is from the chair of the California Democratic Party.

Apparently, this Democratic Party official is demanding separate eating establishments for progressives and conservatives.

But hey, where would I eat?

This is Common Sense. I’m Paul Jacob.

 


* Arguably, many of the stories we fret about should be non-stories — as in, “none of our business.” But when some people make others’ business theirs, the stories just will not stay local.

    If the goal is to destroy the the United States the only way to do so is to destroy it’s sole unifying factor, it’s philosophy of personal worth, gain and responsibility.   The Balkanization into competing groups and claiming to be disadvantaged and oppressed by others is the perfect crossover and evil manner in which to accomplish that. 
    Damn them!

    Why the cult-following of In-N-Out Burger?  Little bitty burger hiding under a tiny bun.  Where’s the beef?

    They are so unbelievably biased it’s ridiculous. The left in complaining that In-and-out donated $25,000 to the republicans but are ignoring that they also donated $25,000 to the democrats at the same time.
