Diversity Thursday

Those fully in the thralls of the Cult of Diversity will sacrifice any principal and tear down the integrity of any process in order to force their sociopolitical world view on those around them.

They especially show their contempt for free and open processes when they get access to the levers of power. Sometimes they use those levers in the open, sometimes they work through weak willed or compromised subordinates to do it for them.

Either way, once brought out in the light and exposed to fresh air, the intellectually stale and fetid nature of it all becomes clear to everyone around them

Thing about those Diversity Bullies, they spend so much time in a self-selecting social and intellectual bubble that they do not understand why people object to actions they see as only doing the right thing for the right reasons. They have no ability to see that their definition of what is "right" means just the opposite of what it should in a free republic.

The Cult of Diversity sometimes gets access to big levers of power, sometimes smaller ones. The mindset and process is the same.

Let's look at one of the small ones;
On Oct. 6, Everett Middle School welcomed a special visitor. As students cheered and clapped, Chelsea Clinton walked across the San Francisco academy’s wooden stage and hugged Everett’s mascot, a humongous brown and white owl.

Clinton was at Everett to promote a book, but when she learned that the public school was about to hold its first student council election in several years, the former first daughter couldn’t help but chime in with words of encouragement.

“I don’t think anyone should ever rule out politics as a way to make a difference,” she said, according to ABC 7.

If students were inspired, however, it didn’t last long.
The controversy began as soon as the Oct. 9 election results rolled in. Everett’s 36-year-old principal, Lena Van Haren, was disturbed by the lack of diversity among the winners,
When Everett held its election three days later, its principal promptly refused to release the results, saying she was concerned that the winners were not diverse enough.
Students weren’t exactly expecting real-time streaming results, but they were surprised not to learn who had won when they showed up to school the following Monday. By Wednesday, the situation was getting weird.

On Thursday, nearly a week after the election, Van Haren sent out an e-mail to parents explaining her decision to withhold the election results.

“This is complex, but as a parent and a principal, I truly believe it behooves us to be thoughtful about our next steps here so that we can have a diverse student council that is truly representative of all voices at Everett,” she wrote,
“I wanted to get more involved and change some things,” Kaplan, the seventh-grader running for class representative, told KRON 4, practically quoting Chelsea Clinton verbatim. “I feel like it is disrespectful to all the people who were running,” he said of the strange silence over election results.
“Well, the children’s voices were heard. They just seemed to be less obsessed with race than some administrators are,” wrote UCLA law professor Eugene Volokh, in his blog Volokh Conspiracy hosted by The Washington Post.
Read the whole thing, as this is a good example about what happens when good people stand up. There is also a lot of humor here as the Principal does a not do a very convincing job of excuse making and back peddling. She still seems to not know what hit her.

If their worldview was not so hate filled, sectarian, and bigoted, I would almost feel sorry for the members of the Diversity Cult. The second decade of the 21st Century has largely left their early-1970s theories behind. Though their tree is bearing fruit, it is hollow inside and has shallow roots.

They can never defend what they do in an open forum. They cannot intellectually understand the nature of a multi-racial society as it exists and as a result, see people as the KKK and the Nazi party with their one drop rule do - and enable rent-seeking fraudsters and extortionists.

That is not a good place to be for your mental health. Sure, feel sorry for them but give them no quarter when in your life you run in to them.

Do not accept, do not be cowed. They only succeed when good people remain silent, and really, that is what they want. Silence and acceptance. As they show over and over, all it takes is to demonstrate what they are doing - and their power turns to farce.

Oh, and the kids? They get it;
“The whole school voted for those people, so it is not like people rigged the game,” seventh-grader Sebastian Kaplan told KRON 4, who had run for class representative yet had no clue a week later if he won. “But in a way, now it is kinda being rigged.”
Yes Sebastian, it is. Now, what are you and your parents going to do about it from here? You won a tactical victory, but ...
