Excellent piece buy one of the truly great thinkers of our day. Klavan digs into what I call the Politics of Division that all Leftists engage in. As Klavan rightly points out, the Left’s entire ideology revolves around separating everyone into racial groups, then pitting those groups against each other
Only the left, by politics, purpose and philosophy, divides people into racial groups and demands they be treated differently both in ordinary human commerce and under the law. No conservative I know would consent to such an outrage against justice and morality, no matter what his private feelings might be.
So obsessed with race are leftists – so convinced are they that black people especially are unable to care for themselves as men and women must – that they seek to exempt blacks and other minorities from the normal rigors of competence and good behavior. Having then disgracefully and destructively lowered the standards for people with dark skin, they accuse the rest of us of racism simply for treating dark-skinned people the same as we would treat anyone! A world turned upside down.
How very true this is. The Left has, for decades upon decades done their best to convince “minorities” that their only hope of success is to donate to, and vote for Liberal candidates. Any “minority” who dares vote for a Republican, is vilified, mocked, and shamed for not being “Black enough” or called an Oreo, Banana, or some other racial slur. Women who stray from what I call the Leftist Plantation of Accepted Ideology are degraded with slurs or crude sexual remarks. Likewise, the Leftists try to intimidate Homosexuals, Latinos, Asians, and every other possible “minority category” into selling their souls to Leftist ideology. For the Left, dividing Americans into groups is a path to keeping these groups dependent upon failed big government programs, and keeping them addicted to the bitterness the Left instills in them.
