“Diversity”, and other examples of Intolerance from the oh-so “Tolerant” Left

Since we are in the middle of yet ANOTHER illustration of this, courtesy of the New Diversity Enforcers, we’re re-linking this post from a couple years back.

It’s rather depressing to see just how little has changed since then, …and that what HAS changed, is worse



Diversity has become a joke

What I mean by that is that diversity, as defined by the Left, is a joke. That’s because the Left has defined Diversity to mean only superficial or physical differentiations: race, skin color, gender or sexual orientation.

Yes, that is a type of diversity, but then they take it one step beyond. These differences are then brought and held together by stereotypical assumptions about who such individuals are and what they believe, solely BECAUSE of their race, skin color, gender or sexual orientation.

Which is a patently ridiculous (not to mention racist, sexist, and intolerant) view of diversity.


Conservatives have been pointing this out since what feels like the Beginning of Time, but still they persist. As a result, we’re compelled to continually highlight the Left’s unintentional irony and hypocrisy.

Happy Mother’s Day

It is truly an upside-down world, when groups such as Planned Parenthood celebrate Mother’s Day asking people for donations to prevent women from becoming mothers, or in other words, by asking for abortion funding.  

For that reason, I am especially grateful for this advertisement from Publix Supermarkets. This is as Pro-Life an ad as you’ll see today, and they deserve some serious credit for it.

Happy Mother’s Day, everyone.

Kudos for Cooper

How did I miss this?

CNN has gotten to where it’s tough to digest more than 15-minutes at a time, since the bias is so pronounced. However, among their gaggle of talking heads, I’ve always held out hope for Anderson Cooper. He often comes across as sincere, though just as often sincerely misguided. As yet, he doesn’t fall into the egregiously “clueless” category like, say, Soledad O’Brien.

That said, …this is great stuff. There are some folks out there on CNN and MSNBC whom I’m not sure even know how to do journalism (think Piers Morgan or Ed Shultz), but this is proof positive that Cooper possesses that knowledge, regardless if he chooses to use those skills most days. I have no problem pointing out when I think a reporter is being unfair/illogical/biased, so file this under “credit where credit is due”.

Nice job, Anderson.

Question: Perhaps Cooper is auditioning for FOX?

Oh, that’s MUCH clearer now…

They just can’t help themselves.

Via HOTAIR.com, National Organization of Women President Terry O’Neill tried to turn Hilary Rosen’s ridiculous inflammatory statement from Wednesday night into a positive by, basically, …..repeating it.

The money quote:

TERRY O’NEILL: What would we be saying if Hillary Clinton had said this: that Ann Romney has never, has not worked for pay outside the home a day in her life? That’s my understanding that’s an accurate statement, and that raises the exact issue that Hilary Rosen was trying to get to, which is do Mr. & Mrs. Romney have the kind of life experience and if not, the imagination, to really understand what most American families are going through right now? I think that that was what Hilary was getting out, and so she left out the words “for pay outside the home.”

Ed Morrissey actually echoes in his post today what I was saying yesterday:

Once again, we get to see the professional Left’s utter disdain for women who chose to stay home with their children rather than work in the workplace. Do they also lack “life experience” and “imagination”? Are their political and economic views also irrelevant? Is a woman’s worth entirely measured by her salary? Is that the official position of NOW? If so, then perhaps they may want to think about an official name change.

My only advice to these folks?

Keep digging, guys. Keep digging….


This one just writes itself.

On CNN last night, a Democrat strategist named Hilary Rosen (of whom I have never heard prior to this) opened a brand new front on the alleged “war on women” by attempting to marginalize Mitt Romney …by maligning his wife, Ann.

Rosen’s quote: she (Ann Romney) has “.…never worked a day in her life”, basically spells out exactly what Democrats think of most stay-at-home mothers, …and (with apologies to Aretha Franklin) it is NOT spelled R-E-S-P-E-C-T.

This is in no way a critique of mothers who both work outside of the house and raise their children; far, far from it. I respect and count as friends many incredible women who do a superb job of doing both. Moreover, some women would LOVE to stay at home with their kids, but have no choice but to work outside the home in order to make ends meet. However, to say that doing only ONE of these vocations equates to you “not working” amounts to libel, regardless to which one you are referring.

This will be discussed ad nauseam for the next few days, I’m sure. It was already all over the news this morning, and Rush is discussing it as I type this. However, I have a personal perspective on this in a couple of ways.

First off, I’m the proud son of a stay-at-home mom. My mother was an incredible wife and partner (just ask my Dad…), she took care of the house finances, carted three kids all over our corner of the globe, volunteered for school and church activities, and managed to keep a scarily-clean house simultaneously…..plus a thousand other sundry tasks. Since we had no extended family within even a day’s drive, there were no options of dropping the children off at grandma’s, ….ever.

If someone had dared to say anything to my mom that could be even tangentially interpreted as “you really don’t work”, they would have been on the receiving end of a hurled steam-iron-to-the-head before they could have completed the sentence. My mother was remarkable (personal bias fully admitted…), but she was performing the identical duties of millions of other women across our country, and at an extraordinarily high level.

I am blessed to have married a wonderful, smart and incredibly capable woman who ALSO is a stay-at-home mom. She quit her job when we decided to start a family. In addition to all of the duties that MY mother handled, my wife also home-schools our two boys. Knowing what her daily schedule is leaves me in awe that I don’t find her hopped-up on drugs on any given day.

I am simply not brave (or dumb) enough to ever posit that she doesn’t “work”.

The Democrats are in full walk-balk mode over this, even though Ms. Rosen hasn’t as yet retracted her statement and, in fact, is doubling down on it. Personally, I couldn’t care less if she ever apologizes or not. What this episode does is illustrate a crucial difference in our country. These women who choose to raise their families full-time are to be admired just as much as anyone else. To too many people and in too many circles, if you believe in being a full-time mother, and if you hold dear the idea of God, country, family….you aren’t looked upon as erudite or as actually living the modern American experience.

To which I say, “Bull-puckies……”.

This has become just another way to Balkanize us, and pit one group of Americans against another.

Our president was touted as a great unifier when he came into office. He has been anything but. And when his party’s minions are out spouting such mindless twaddle, he makes an already divided country even more so.
