The Word That Can't Be Questioned
Steyn Online

Apparently DeSantis is guilty by association with Mark Steyn.

Really. Or at any rate that's really what Mark Steyn says. :lmao:

It wasn't just Mark Styen said that, The Washington Post insinuated that DeSantis is guilty by association with every speaker at that conference, including Steyn.

Mark Steyn also said this:
Mark Steyn wrote:To his credit, Mr DeSantis' office has responded that he's not going to play "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" over everyone who happened to be in the room over the course of a three-day conference. Indeed, a good illustration of how diversity makes you stupid is the fact that it's now considered entirely normal that the only acceptable public gatherings are those where everyone agrees 100 per cent with everyone else present.
Steyn's brilliant observation is yet another example of the left's hypocrisy regarding "diversity". That is to say, when liberals speak of "diversity" they are (more often than not) referring to some specialized narrow form of pseudo-diversity rather than the more general all inclusive form as defined in the dictionary. Only certain kinds of "diversity" are allowed by liberals. Evidences: Ask any liberal politician to define diversity and it will not include diversity of political opinion, nor will it include certain other forms of actual diversity that are currently present in the US.

It's an age old example of the difference between right and left wing world views.

The right* seeks equality of opportunity. Where a diverse pool of applicants enable the best team to be assembled. In this paradigm, a lack of diversity is like a silent canary in a coal mine. .. it is a potential warning sign that the team may not be optimal and should be looked into, but not necessarily wrong.

The left is focused on equality of outcomes and a lack of diversity is not a warning that something may be wrong, it IS wrong.


* the decent right. The one with fine people.
