“Diversity is strength,” the left likes to chant. “America’s greatness comes from our diversity,” they chant. Some would argue that the freedom to allow anyone to go as far and as high as their hard work, talent, and ambition can take them is at the heart of our success as a nation. The left says, no, our success as a nation depends on bean-counting to make sure people of different skin colors, sexes, sexual orientations, mental disorders, or whatever, are equally represented.
But at the same time, the left is giddy over the thought of the United States being reduced to a second-rate power by China, a country that demands rigid conformity and is rather devoid of racial diversity. (And as anyone who spent time in China will attest, their attitudes toward blacks make David Duke look like Alan Alda.)
Which would tend to make one suspect that this diversity thing may not really be the key to national greatness after all. Or, at least, that the left doesn’t really believe that BS.
India, on the other hand, is very diverse culturally, ethnically, and religiously. But, as a democracy, it is not nearly so admired by the left. In fact, as Hillary and Joe Biden have shown us, cracking ethnic jokes at the expense of the subcontinent is perfectly acceptable.
