A nation gone mad

NO, I’M NOT referring to the fact that Mexico likely will soon elect to the presidency a guy who goes by his initials AMLO. I’m referring to the United States.

Apparently, this has been going on for a while, but it only came to my attention recently. The U.S. federal government, during the Obama administration, changed the rules for hiring air-traffic controllers.

While the primary goal previously was hiring the most talented applicants, the main goal now is to bring diversity into the control tower. Too many air-traffic controllers were white men. The horror!

Whenever affirmative action enters a process, quality suffers. While this is not so critical when it’s done in universities or corporate offices, doing it with air-traffic controllers is nincompoopery on a stunning level.

While political correctness in the United States has become so overboard that one wearies of rolling one’s eyeballs, this action takes potential consequences to new, stellar heights. This nonsense, as this sort of insanity invariably does, comes to you from the Democrat Party.

Next time you’re flying into Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, know that it may be Maxine Water’s previously unemployed grandson who’s guiding the pilot on final approach. And as the fireball races down the aisle, rest easy in the knowledge that racial injustice from two centuries ago has finally been corrected.

Watch the video. The situation’s actually worse than I’ve indicated.

The hilarity of Hollywood

SHOWBIZ HAS become a caricature of itself.

Its prime function is to entertain us, and it’s now doing that more than ever, but not in a way it thinks or wants.

The Oscars have become a leftist, lip-flapping session. Movies hype political correctness so blatantly that it’s hard not to howl with derisive laughter.

Case in point:

Last night on Netflix we watched a new Natalie Portman flick named The Annihilation. It was pretty lame but not due to the rampant pushing of political correctness. It simply is not a very good movie.

But let’s look at the PC aspects. There was a team of four that entered a zone of no return, a place where other teams had entered and vanished. It’s a sci-fi movie.

In a realistic movie and in real life, the team would have been four tough, beefy guys with backpacks, camos and guns, men with Special Forces backgrounds. But what was the team in The Annihilation? Four women, and not just four women.

Our racially and sexually diverse lady team sported backpacks, camos and guns, just like guys, in spite of their being ladies of science, not soldiering.

Women can do anything!

Two white women, one Latino woman and one black woman. The black woman was a lesbian. Extra diversity point! Natalie Portman’s character, earlier in the sequence of events, had an affair with a married man. He was black, of course.

Multi-racial romances are the rage in Hollywood. Nobody hops into the sack anymore with anyone who even vaguely resembles themselves, which is how it works almost all of the time in real life.

The dialogue: There were occasional mentions of romances and marriages. The significant others were never referred to as men. They were invariably a “person” or a “partner.” The script sounded as if it had been written in a gender-studies class at Berkeley or the University of Wisconsin.

The only entertaining aspect to this silliness was watching almost all the gals gruesomely die. If they’d only brought Clint Eastwood along.

The duet

FOR MANY years, I’ve been singing that promoting multiculturalism is a recipe for disaster. The keyword is promoting. Putting it on a pedestal.

Nobody has ever paid me a dime’s worth of attention. Nobody has ever flatly agreed that I recall. I get either disagreement or, far more often, stony silence.

It’s one of those topics I occasionally address here that sends most everyone scurrying for the nearest exit.

Saying cultural diversity is bad is akin nowadays to saying Jews were good in 1930s Germany. You simply did not say it. It was/is verboten. Saying diversity is bad today, like saying Jews were good in 1930s Germany, can lead to ostracism, loss of job and murder. This is not hyperbole.

Virtually everyone now says they embrace diversity. Whether they actually do or not is another matter.

Individuals, corporations, universities, you name it. They all will tell you they just love diversity to death.

I’m referring to the Western world. You can see diss diversity in other areas of the world without fear because most of the world understands the value of family and nation.

A cyber-amigo put a smile on my face yesterday by emailing me an article published by the Hoover Institution.

Here’s a key sentence: History offers only a few success stories when it comes to diversity.

More often than not over the centuries, multiculturalism has led to mayhem and murder. I feel vindicated somewhat.

I am not singing a solo anymore. I’m part of a duet.

I left it unlocked for you.

The sage

sageFOR MANY YEARS I have pointed out the perils of promoting multiculturalism.

Did anyone pay me any mind? No, and we have arrived at the current conditions that exist in the United States.

Fact: People prefer the company of those similar to themselves.

Fact: People forced into the company of those very different from themselves get edgy.

Fact: Edginess in time leads to mayhem and murder.

Fact: Nations are families, i.e. very large groups of people who are alike in religion, race, language and culture.

Fact: People want it that way.

Let’s look at university campuses. Go to the student union cafeteria. In spite of campuses being ground zero of diversity-loving, you will find black students sitting together over here, white students sitting together over there, and Orientals sitting together on the patio outside, studying.*

Multicultural violence is increasing in the United States, and it’s just going to get worse. I see no light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Promoting multiculturalism is the kerosene that fuels the fire, daily.

Multiculturalism within a nation — or any society — is a problem that needs to be addressed in the kindest way possible. It is never to be encouraged.

It’s putting a pistol to your head.

We’re all just people, you say, and must learn to live together in peace. Likewise, lions and tigers are all big, carnivorous cats. Does the male lion invite tigers into the pride in the name of diversity? No. There would be murder and mayhem.

It’s a good analogy. Lions are smarter than Americans, Western Europeans and Canadians too.

Listen to your sage.
