Skip to comments.DIVERSITY CULT DIVIDES AMERICA
Posted on 11/13/2009 5:50:18 AM PST by shortstop
Few words have been more popular in recent years than "diversity."
And few concepts have been more destructive.
Destructive of our social fabric, destructive of our moral well-being, destructive of our ability to make judgments.
In schools, non-profits and government programs across the nation, diversity has been held up as a great and noble prize. Some objective to be fought for and given prominence. It has become the top priority in institutions from colleges to corporations.
And it has become a philosphy handed down like the word of god from the pulpits of education, business and government.
And yet it is a bunch of crap.
It is not a panacea, it is a poison.
It is the latest ax wielded to bring down American heritage and values. In the name of brotherhood, justice and tolerance, it fosters enmity, inequity and chauvinism.
And that's not the worst part.
The worst part is the moral relativism which is inherent in it. A moral relativism that poses a great danger to our individual and social health and stability.
The foundation of the diversity movement is an almost shamanistic belief that it is good in and of itself. That diversity must be sought and advanced and that's that. It's like a magical thing. College presidents in their exit interviews with reporters boast of increased diversity while ignoring educational outcome. Businesses brag about having a diverse workforce at the same time they lose money.
Diversity has become an end in itself, instead of a means to another end.
And that's no good.
Because diversity for diversity's sake is a recipe for disaster.
The goal is not to be diverse, the goal is to be one. The goal is not to be rewarded for differences, but to be enabled by commonalities. At church, in school, on the job, people become better and more successful when they identify as a team instead of as individuals.
Particularly individuals who are highlighted by their contrasts.
Our society is drawn together when we see ourselves as Americans, not as various splintered racial, linguistic, religious and lifestyle groups. People work best together -- as employees or neighbors -- when they work toward a common interest, not from a disparate background.
People with a chip on their shoulder cannot shoulder the burden of citizenship.
The diversity movement actively sows the seeds of division and conflict. It will result not in a tolerant society, but in a civil war. People do not grow closer under its tutelage, they grow further apart. People don't become sensitive to one another's interests, they become hypersensitive to one another's offenses, typically seeing them where they do not in fact exist.
Whereas Martin Luther King Jr. hoped his children would be judged by the content of their character, the diversity movement identifies and values them by the color of their skin.
Which is racist and wrong.
The harshest blow dealt by the diversity movement, however, is not to social relations, but to moral fiber. It fosters a life view which tears down values and morality. It attacks the notion of absolute truth and leads to a moral anarchy or chaos, a state where all rules are thrown out.
Diversity teaches that the mores of the majority must not be given ascendancy. That the views of one group must not be given any more respect than the views of any other group.
In fact, diversity actively promotes minority and divergent views and values. It ignores the normal to exalt the aberrant. It purposelly avoids the mainstream.
It insists on a parity that does not in fact exist. And it often achieves that parity by debasing all value systems. In making sure that no morals are treated any better than any other morals, the practical impact of diversity is to abandon morals altogether.
Instead of it being a disagreement about what truth is, it leaves its followers believing that there is no truth. That there isn't right and wrong, just difference. And difference is good.
And there are no answers.
Which is false.
There are answers. There is right and wrong. Truth is absolute.And absolute truth should be sought. Sadly, the society raised to worship diversity will never know to search for it.
It is not a panacea, it is a poison.
Don’t forget Diversity’s poisonous partner, Tolerance. As in tolerating a radical Muslim to the point of the slaughter of 14 innocent people. Oops.
As a combined arms SGM in the Army I was told ceaselessly that UNITY was the key to winning battles — unity of purpose, unity of command, unity of effort. Diversity is the antithesis of all that.
An the bastard cousin “equal rights” based on imagined or contrived standards other than the one explicitly laid down in our founding documents.
Remember what another poster called it: “diversity fetish”
Diversity is Racism.
"by the content of their character, not the color of their skin"
The "melting pot" has been totally distilled into its component parts....and it's pitted each against the other to further the socialist agenda of baiting, and appeasing.
PC is simply another facet of Satanism. PC is the suppression of truth and the promotion of lies.
A couple decades ago I managed the military equal opportunity program at a Seabee installation. I learned then and later in another assignment advocated that equal opportunity should be only part of a basket of ancilliary performance metrics. Diversity is nice to have, but the diversity I want in a battalion is the right number of Builders, Construction Mechanics, Equipment Operators, Civil Engineering Officers, etc. of the right seniority and experience. If all are Puerto Rican blacks or white Jews I don’t care. I want them skilled in the specialties and in combat. When diversity is our main goal then eventually our mission fails.
At Fort Hood last week the force protection component of the U.S. Army’s mission failed miserably. I’ve been fired for failure. Who will be fired for this failure?
Diversity as it is defined today, is every people, race and color thinking exactly the same as the other. Its Groupthink and it only serves our overlord/masters. The people ARE SUFFERING for it.
You beat me to it. Political correctness, multiculturalism and so called diversity are right out of Satan’s playbook.
The YouTube sing-along about diversity from two years ago
It's called "M&M" diversity. Different colors outside, same ideology inside.
Ethnic diversity is OK. But cultural diversity is detrimental to the future of this country.
“People with a chip on their shoulder cannot shoulder the burden of citizenship.”
AMEN!!!! And that’s what we’re importing and what some want to give amnesty to....millions of whining, demanding, socialistic 3rd worlders with chips on their shoulders!
What ever happened to e pluribus unum?
