I’m sure those that celebrate diversity have automatically leapt to the conclusion that I am a bigot, racist and without doubt xenophobic to write such a thing. Not so although being white skinned probably helps paint a narrative that progressives will immediately turn to promote their cause. To turn the argument on its head (an argument I made in a previous post) my Facebook friends list covers every main religion, every race, every sexual orientation and a wide variety of age groups. It is such a culturally diverse list (and I am sure many others have it too) that we are already living the “diversity” dream of our own volition. Here is the bigger point, not once have I ever thought of these people as anything other than people. I don’t think of them as what they are, only who they are. The word diversity and all of the political correct nonsense surrounding it should be thrown into the nearest dustbin we can find. The fact we keep making such a huge storm in a teacup over people’s rights, feelings and protecting the growing number of fragile egos into ‘safe spaces.’
My two daughters are in the picture above. They are mixed race. 100% Japanese mother mixed with a mongrel that is me – Norwegian, Polish, British, Austrian, Scottish, Irish, Australian and so on. Interracial marriage has become much more commonplace. According to Pew Research, inter-ethnic and interracial marriage has grown from 3% in the 1980s toward 10% today. Another Gallup poll showed that those approving such marriages in the US had grown from 4% in 1959 to 90%+ today. I would argue that the trends of tolerance and diversity has been improving for a long time. Why more than ever are we having ‘diversity’ shoved down our throats? All this moral preening.
I was kind of surprised at how many Remain camp people instantly dragged out the xenophobia card. These repressed old white poor uneducated xenophobes (OWPUX). That somehow all immigrants in the UK were soon to be turfed out. No reasoned thought just that Britain would round them up and shut the door. Honestly, if companies in the UK had valuable immigrant employees it is natural they would sponsor them and even more natural for the government to make such transition simpler. Arguments again pointed that we needed more multiculturalism and many ‘Remain’ camp people had this guilt complex over being perceived racist. People openly saying the ‘deleted’ Facebook friends that voted ‘Leave’. If there was ever an action to admonish the principles of diversity this was it. Just shut down debate and free speech. Some people feel compelled to write posts in such tortured ways so as to not offend anyone. It is bullshit people. We must call it for what it is. We can’t get to the bottom of social problems if we are forever living in fear of our own shadows in social media. I think if you are not brazenly posting pictures of utter poor taste like with a rifle and Cecil the dead lion then let the free speech reign.
When we look at today’s mainstream media (MSM), we couldn’t get a poorer representation of how people really think. In recent times, think of how often they have totally missed the point yet carry on as if they are experts. Global Financial Crisis – the mainstream media were cheerleaders without nearly a single open minded thought of the calamity that awaited. They completely missed Brexit. They’re completely missing Trump and even now in the midst of calling him a bigot, racist, fascist etc he has the highest support from black, Hispanic and gays than any other Republican candidate in history. Hardly the result if these people believed The Donald was that. The recent media polls now are so skewed to get a narrative to look as though Hillary Clinton will romp home will be rudely shocked when election time comes. I showed my Twitter follower study which has Trump smashing Clinton in growth. On June 21, Trump had 9.1mn followers. Today 9.38mn. Clinton had 7.02mn on June 21. Now has 7.16mn. So Trump added 280k to Clinton’s 140k – twice the rate in one week! In fact Brexit was the same. ‘Vote Leave’ had slightly more followers than ‘RemaIN’.
The MSM completely jumped over the Orlando massacre trying to avoid using ‘radical Islam’ despite evidence so incontrovertible. In the ‘bleeding heart world of the diversity crowd’ they lit up monuments around the world and ‘prayed for LGBT rights’. Are you kidding me? Gay provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos smacked these progressive liberals in the head after the Orlando tragedy saying their LGBT pacifism is solving nothing and worse it is not doing anything to change the minds of the morons that would commit such crimes.
People have to open their eyes and stop giving into this misguided altruism. I am shocked at how many are so swayed by such empty rhetoric and propaganda. You’re already diverse and the more diversity junkies try to publicly divide us into more and more minorities
In Australia, several university students are the victims of a secret trial over racial discrimination law 18C. It is so out of whack. It is so shameful in its persecution of innocent people who potentially have their futures severely damaged by the outcome. The Australian wrote, “Human Rights Commission staff and president Gillian Triggs were accused in a racial hatred case yesterday of “stooping” to a regrettable low in a desperate attempt to “avoid scrutiny of their shameful conduct” against university students…The students are accused of racial hatred for writing Facebook posts [unfounded] which caused offence to Ms Prior after she had turned them away from the computer lab in the Oodgeroo Unit in May 2013. Ms Prior went on stress leave and is seeking more than $250,000 damages after not working for almost all of the past three years.” This culture of victimology must stop.
This push for diversity in Australia has plunged new depths where our Diversity Council is trying to say that the use of the innocuous term “guys” is inappropriate workplace behaviour – What they hey? Does the Thought Police really need to butt into our office life? 99.9% are aware of the do’s and don’ts of the workplace. Each company has its own culture and diversity already but even CEOs of companies like Unilever are openly championing their progressive attitudes to diversity. I couldn’t care less. I am diverse and I don’t need others trying to indoctrinate me into a forced narrative I don’t believe in. I don’t think any more or less of Unilever because of it. Although in electronic job applications nowadays, you are often asked about ethnicity, sexual orientation and so on. I almost wonder falsely writing that I’m LGBT probably gives me a leg up because companies are petrified to be slandered as ‘bigoted’. How can the prove me wrong? Just like Lester Burnham did in American Beauty.
In Victorian schools, the Marxist government is having cross-dressing days for young children so they can role play the opposite sex for a day. Is the average 7 year old mature enough to understand? Young teenagers are asked to role play (as one choice) a 17yo old bisexual girl who has had 15 sexual partners mostly unprotected because she is drunk. So our schools are endorsing illegal behaviour (underage drinking). Boys will also have the option to dress in female school uniform if they wish. As a parent there is no way in the world I would accept such education for my kids sneakily taught under the guise of ‘Safe Schools’ which is sold as anti-bullying. The founder and former head of the programme said preventing bullying wasn’t the aim – it is all about gender fluidity. The ironic thing is the Premier of Victoria who has pushed this Safe Schools program sends his kids to schools that aren’t signed up for the program. Father Eusebios, the Abbot of the Pantanassa Greek Orthodox Monastery, told some of the families at a forum in Belmore last month of the confusion and anxiety the new sex education classes are creating for children. He said, “I had a 13-year-old child come to me who tells me he’s been told to go home and find a picture of a male celebrity on the internet and explain to the entire class why he is sexually attracted to that male and he says to the teacher ‘I can’t do this’ and she removes him from the classroom.”
You get the point? While the political correctness mob go out of their way to promote multi-culturalism, diversity and equality at every turn, they merely categorise more people into more boxes which creates the exact opposite result. We are already a multi-cultural society. If the diversity vultures wish to live the real dreams of multi-culturalism instead of focusing on those that are already doing it, try focusing on those cultures that don’t value it and don’t share reciprocal values. Rant over.
