Political correctness, diversity and quotas: not what you thought they were

Unbeknownst to most people, political correctness was invented in the 1920s by Marxists like Georg Lukacs and later introduced to America to initiate a Marxist revolution. It is important to remember the history of political correctness because, at face value, it looks like a way to change the way language is used, stamp out bigotry and create tolerance and equality for everyone. In reality, political correctness paves the way for the rise of a new society with its own biases, inequalities and bigotry.

Today, a Non-White atheist lesbian learns from the social culture (media, television) and higher education that there are “strikes” against her because of who she is, and that the "evil White, Christian-dominated patriarchy" will cut her down and discriminate against her. But businesses can get in big trouble for hiring too few people like her, even if the job applicants during hiring, who happen to be of that kind, are no value to the company and the better candidate for the position is somebody else.

Otherwise, your company may be taken to court for "discrimination" if you do not have "enough" Non-Whites on staff. And, as Abercrombie & Fitch found out in 2005, you might have to pay $50 million in "damages". The $50 million settlement included a stipulation that, after a year and a half, the company had to have a certain percentage of African Americans, Latinos and women employed. Interestingly, the company was also forced to hire "diversity recruiters" - and, according to the settlement, Whites were not allowed to apply for the position:

"In addition to the statements in the consent decree, Abercrombie & Fitch was required to hire 25 diversity recruiters. The recruiters are people of color, Asian Americans, and Latinos. Another mandatory position to be added to the company is the Vice President of diversity, who will oversee the progress of the company’s rate of completion of goals stated in the decree."

So, in reality, the Non-White atheist lesbian is actually at an advantage. She may get hired simply because there are not enough people like her. Moreover, the more people an employer hires that aren't White or male, the less likely the employer is going to get hit with a discrimination lawsuit. What do you think are the consequences of such a mentality?

The same advantages for people like the Non-White atheist lesbian exist outside of the workplace. Universities also have quotas to fill and, because there are far fewer Non-White applicants than Whites, Non-Whites will normally get into their university of choice before any White person with the same academic scores and intelligence.This is no longer a secret; USAToday recently admitted that colleges favor minority students (USAToday, June 23, 2003). Of note, once again, we are going down a pathway where one step closer to a quota could mean one step further from a lawsuit.

When it comes time to finance one's education, there are a number of financial aid programs for the Non-White atheist lesbian, which Whites are not allowed to apply for. Here are a few of them below (Source: Guide to Scholarships for Minorities):

    Thus far, we have seen how the non-white atheistic lesbian's race and sexual orientation leads to special privileges, free money and empowerment; so just what does the straight White male get? Well, there are no special scholarships for him. In fact, if the White male is conservative or flaunts his ethnicity or heterosexuality, the only thing his ideas can do for him is get him in trouble: suspended, fired and so on.

    In conclusion, the political correctness system yields an increasing amount of power to groups which were once underrepresented or advocates of things which were once considered to be backwards. As a result, we live in a world turned upside down. In this world, the media gives alternative lifestyle groups and non-white ethnic interest groups positive press; nobody dares to speak out against anything that is done by these groups - it would be a violation of political correctness to speak out. Those who oppose these new social norms and do not like what is happening to society are ridiculed for their "intolerance" and "close-mindedness." Thus, a new morality has been formed based on one's openness to political correctness, and those who are not open to political correctness are punished, shamed, and attacked with labels. You know them already: "closed-minded", "intolerant", "bigot", etc.

    At the other end of the spectrum, words like “open-minded”, “free-spirited” and “humanist” become terms to describe any political suggestion which empowers and gives credence to all that was once discouraged or feared to challenge the functionality of society. The influence of these descriptors lingers regardless of circumstance, thus assigning a predetermined value to anything that is labeled as "open-minded", "free-spirited" or "humanist". The same happens to whatever is considered "intolerant" or "close-minded". In essence, you have a substitute for a rational evaluation of the circumstances using critical thought. The labels have already decided what you should think.

    Like a disease, political correctness attacks the ability to think critically; nothing - not even an explicit interest of the national community - is powerful enough to trump political correctness and its one-word judgments.

    Now look at the result: a new, wealthy, ideologically-compliant power core, devoted to and profiting from political correctness, has arisen. Tell me: does this remind you of anything? Given the roots of political correctness, perhaps we should not be surprised.
