On Aug. 28, 1964, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke the immortal words, “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.” Amen.
The people judging his children by the color of their skin at the time were Democrats who ruled the south, birthed Jim Crow and lynched thousands. Today, 50 years after that speech, Democrats still judge people by the color of their skin but now have added sexual orientation, gender and any other way human beings can be subdivided to their list of prejudices – all in the service of their own power grab.
Democrats learned well the lesson of Abraham Lincoln’s, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” What Lincoln said is true. But those divided people can, when properly manipulated, be positioned to prop up that which manipulates them. That is the essence of the modern Democratic Party.
No party has better separated people more than Democrats. By every conceivable means, and some simply created anew for convenience sake, Democrats categorize by everything. The individual does not exist to Democrats, beyond props to be used at their events and speeches. To them, we are nothing but clumps of ethnicities, melanin, genitals and wallets.
Our ancestry, color, sexuality and income are but a few of the ways Democrats divide us. They then assign blame for whatever problem du jour presents itself to those who somehow don’t share their sameness. But with every bit of manipulation there are unintended consequences.
Academia has long been the petri dish from which progressives spread their divisive hatred. And spread it has, like a cold on a plane. The monster they created is now turning on the very institutions they’ve used to embed their hatred. To borrow a phrase from a well-connected progressive – their chickens are coming home to roost.
Dr. Progressivenstein is hard at work in places such as Western Washington University, where President Bruce Shepard recently performed the progressives’ favorite pastime – the racial head-count. “If we, 10 years from now, are as ‘white’ as we are today, we will have failed as a university in our commitment to meet the critical needs of our state.”
Which brings us to college debate tournaments. Society has norms, units of measure by which we are all judged. For instance, you dress up for weddings and funerals as a show of respect. But in college debate tournaments, the rules which have governed them for 100 years are being turned on their ear. “White privilege,” our progressive friends have discovered, provides some advantage in the contest.
