But what happens when that marginalization ends? What happens when blacks in America are treated according to the content of their character rather than the color of their skin? What happens when Hispanics are welcomed with open arms? What happens when Americans become apathetic about the sex lives of others? What happens when women are treated with the same level of expectation and reward as men?
The liberal agenda goes bust. Obama knows that. And that's why he must never allow consonance to be reached. It's why America must remain a nasty, bigoted place: The moment that America becomes the melting pot, liberalism dies. We can go about our business without fear and without need for a huge government to wipe the slate clean for us.
And so the left inculcates victimhood. Generation after generation, children are taught that they are the victims of the society that raises them. Some Americans are indeed victims. But the vast majority of Americans -- of every subgroup -- are not. There is no real coalition of victims. There is merely a coalition of liberals masquerading as victims in need of a savior government.
