Two things today: Diversity and Resistance, in reverse order.
First, resistance (h/t American Digest)
No, sorry, you arent a resistance, because USA is not a dictatorship. Nobody is persecuting you; none of your rights are being violated; no illegal purges enacted; no tortures and disappearances. You didnt like the results of an election and want to pretend it is illegitimate, because you dont want to do the hard work of rebuilding a constituency alienated, Because you thought correcting peoples attitudes was more important than finding them jobs. Because you turned white man from a description into an insult ( ) Because you cried when someone mocked the Koran but laughed when they mocked the Bible. ( ) Because you kept telling people, You cant think that, you cant say that, you cant do that, as Brendan ONeill has said. Alas, the only people losing their legitimacy are you; who wear little pink hats and take off all your clothes and wander through public spaces offending friend and foe alike; who vandalize coffee shops and write little slogans misspelled on cardboard. No, you arent a resistance, and you dont get to have that word. - Sorry, Youre Not a #Resistance
That of course wont stop them from resisting.
Second diversity and by extension tolerance, or lack there of as demonstrated by the incident at Middlebury College last week in which violence erupted in protest of the speaking appearance of Charles Murray (author of Bell Curve and Coming Apart:The State of White America, 1960-2010) resulting in the concussion of the Leftist professor who disagreed with him but came to his defense. To say that the campus failed in its duty to exemplify how to debate unpopular ideas with civility is an understatement. Thomas Sowell (making a retirement appearance at American Spectator) documents the Lefts latest sophomoric antics, college division, of mind control in The Real Lessons of Middlebury College:
The moral dry rot in academia and beyond goes far deeper than student storm troopers at one college.
Frank Bruni of the New York Times, for example, while criticizing the rioters, lent credence to the claim that Charles Murray was a white nationalist. Similar and worse things have been said, in supposedly reputable publications, by people who could not cite one statement from any of Dr. Murrays books that bears any resemblance to their smears.
Academia, however, is ground zero in the war against people whose ideas go against the current political correctness. The virtual monopoly of the political left, on campuses across the country, allows all sorts of things to be attributed to people the left disagrees with, irrespective of whether those people have ever said anything resembling what they are alleged to have said.
To be clear, the agitators and protestors were objecting to Charles Murray who they accused of being a white nationalist, (without any evidence) a racist, (without evidence) a sexist, (without any evidence) and a homophobe (without any evidence). They viewed their role as the Resistance (see above) to Charles Murrays fascism (for which they had no evidence).
Mark Steyn, filling in for Rush yesterday, explained emphatically why they are NOT the resistance:
When youre beating up a middle-aged female professor and sending her to the hospital - youre the fascist.
If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face forever. Orwell

We are Socialists, we are enemies of today’s
capitalistic economic system for the exploitation
of the economically weak, with it’s unfair salaries,
with it’s unseemly evaluation of a human being
according to wealth and property instead of
responsibility and performance, and we are all
determined to destroy this system under all conditions.
A snowflake would agree with that paragraph, but has no idea who wrote that.
Their organization is called _anti_fascists_ ; just like the book 1984, they are fascists.
Just tell them it was written by Joe Kennedy and Henry Fords best friend and business partner.
Also, _1984_ had a sub plot about the “Anti Sex League” devoted to youth devaluing procreation. That’s exactly the role of LGBBQ now.
“No, sorry, you arent a resistance, because ... . No, you arent a resistance, and you dont get to have that word.”
While absolutely true, the point is completely missed:
The issue is never the issue.
The issue is always the Revolution.
They want a constant state of resistance, fighting The Man, revolution, marching, striking, demanding, etc.
It doesn’t matter who, what, where, when, why, or how - just that they are advancing the undefined Revolution.
They have no interest in actually winning. To truly, completely, triumphantly win would be the end of everything they live for. Winning small battles is critical, making progress is laudable, but they must alway ultimately _lose_ so they can tap their self-righteous (if baseless) anger, regroup, double-down, and revolt again.
Insofar as they _might_ win, their invariable endgame is dictatorship: since they have fought everything & everyone who deviates in the slightest from all they declare perfect and worthy of terrible losses to achieve, they cannot stand for anything not perfectly in line therewith; freedom & liberty are utterly anathema.
Our side’s greatest failing is the irresistible urge to engage in rational problem-solving with the aim of a mutually beneficial conclusion.
They don’t give a d@mn what we think.
We are their declared opposition, the designated subject they are revolting against.
Every revolution needs an enemy, and we are it.
“The enemy of my enemy is my friend”, which is why they side so eagerly with those who would, given half a chance, literally decapitate/stone/hurtle/lash them to death as wanton kaffir.
Any negotiations & discussion both sides may engage in are simply to buy time & opportunity for the Left. Nothing we say will satisfy them. They will not take “yes” for an answer. We are the designated enemy of the all-important Revolution.
It is the act of revolution they seek. To ask them to stop, offering them anything to do so, is like offering them anything they ask if they’ll just stop breathing. ...and yet, even that they will do if it serves the Revolution.
