This is one of my favorite YouTube channels. It’s called History Debunked, and it’s run by a British author named Simon Webb. His videos usually run about five minutes. I believe this is just the second time I have posted one of his talks.
Go and subscribe. He is always entertaining and informative.
This one deals with the effects that “embracing diversity” has had on Scandinavian nations. It hasn’t been pretty. I am a staunch foe of encouraging multiculturalism because it usually leads to nasty things. It is a horrible fad embraced only by historically Caucasian cultures, specifically the clueless, violent, leftist element in those cultures.
Tragically, this element recently seized the White House.
You won’t find the fad in Ecuador, Vietnam, China, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Nigeria, Russia, Japan, etc., because political correctness has no foothold in those places. These sorts of nations have a strong sense of themselves, which is what keeps a nation intact.
You’d be hard-pressed to find a dumber and more inaccurate, stylish phrase than the above. Not only is diversity not our strength. It is the cause of uproar and divisiveness.
Anyone with a moderate grasp of history knows this. Of course, few people possess even a middling grasp of history. They are ignoramuses.
And yet almost everyone spouts the phrase, not just individuals but corporations which, almost without exception, now include the pursuit of diversity in their list of principles. This means they mainly choose their employees not by skills but skin color and gender. This is really dumb.
That embracing diversity causes problems is obvious. Just look at the United States now. That not embracing it avoids problems of a similar nature is demonstrated by unicultural nations such as Mexico, Japan, Russia, China and so on. These sorts of nations do not crow that diversity is their strength. They know better.
This diversity-embracing nonsense is not pushed by conservatives. It is pushed by leftists. In the United States that means the Democrat Socialist Party, formerly known as the Democrat Party. Diversity is not the sole bad idea of these people, though it is a primary one that drives other ill-conceived initiatives.
Deep down, the Democrat Socialists know that diversity is not our strength at all, which is why they are so intent on muzzling anyone who disagrees. Truth speaks for itself. Lies must be forced upon us. Diversity is a road to destruction, a Highway to Hell.
Eskimo pie is out of the igloo. Now it’s Edy’s pie, which doesn’t offer the chill, refreshing associations of Eskimos on a sweltering summer day, does it? And there’s Aunt Jemima. Wave goodbye to her too. Quaker has yet to debut her new name, but it’s not long in coming, we’re told.
Ages ago, Aunt Jemima sported a head cloth, something similar to what Willie wore during my childhood. Willie was my grandmother’s maid of many decades. Quaker gussied up Jemima’s appearance years ago, losing the headgear and making her a younger woman with a smiling face. Good grief! A young, black woman in a good mood.
Horrid and racist!
Uncle Ben’s rice is also gone. Now it’s gonna be Ben’s Original because, I guess, being an Uncle is horrid and racist! That switch took place just a few weeks ago. Mrs. Butterworth’s is changing completely, not just the name but the bottle shape, which is that of a matronly woman who abandoned her gym routine long ago.
Stay tuned for Mrs. Butterworth’s new look.
What does all this nonsense have in common? Political correctness. And which end of the political chasm embraces political correctness? The left side, of course. And which political party would that be? (Insert mental image.)
The West now lives in a world with insufficient real problems, so stupid ones are being embraced and “solved.” But wait! There are real problems. Consider China.
Or rather, Mask Madness! It’s well known that people who (inexplicably) still vote for Democrats are far fonder of wearing masks than more sensible folks who vote for Republicans. Why is that? One wonders.
Medical experts from The New England Journal of Medicine to The World Health Organization and also the Centers for Disease Control, the Center for Infectious Disease Research, the Journal for the American Medical Association, the American Association of Physicians and Surgeons have all publicly stated that wearing masks is mostly useless.
Even the medical bureaucrat Dr. Fauci said in March:
“There’s no reason to be walking around with a mask.”
I hear that in some areas above the border, going out sans mask can actually get you attacked, either physically or verbally or both. Or arrested. Here in Mexico that is rare because we are peaceful people who mind our own business.
I only mask up when necessary, mostly to enter a store that requires it. Otherwise, I walk about breathing freely. We do have our mask fanatics here, and my favorites to laugh at are people driving alone in their cars or walking alone in the open air.
