Fw: Fw: Diversity our greatest asset????

Diversity our greatest asset????


It cannot be said often enough that the chief of staff of the United States Army, Gen. George Casey, responded to a massacre of 13 Americans in which the suspect is a Muslim by saying: "Our diversity ... is a strength."

As long as the general has brought it up: Never in recorded history has diversity been anything but a problem. Look at Ireland with its Protestant and Catholic populations, Canada with its French and English populations, Israel with its Jewish and Palestinian populations.

Or consider the warring factions in India , Sri Lanka , China , Iraq , Czechoslovakia (until it happily split up), the Balkans and Chechnya . Also look at the festering hotbeds of tribal warfare -- I mean the beautiful mosaics -- in Third World hellholes like Afghanistan, Rwanda and South Central, L.A.

"Diversity" is a difficulty to be overcome, not an advantage to be sought.. True, America does a better job than most at accommodating a diverse population. We also do a better job at curing cancer and containing pollution. But no one goes around mindlessly exclaiming: "Cancer is a strength!" "Pollution is our greatest asset!"

Yeah! The world will never be peaceful until all races are segregated into different countries, divided by walls and oceans, and the white race is in charge of everything.

That's what they're going for, right?

All races and religions, because white Christians need a different country from white Muslims, who themselves need a different country from brown Muslims, who will in turn need to be separated from black Muslims, who should be divided from black Christians. Jews all get Israel, of course. As for the other religions, I'm sure something will be worked out somehow.

Or maybe we could divide the right wing nutcases from everyone else and send them to Antarctica. That could work, although some might argue that the penguins have enough to put up with already.

Question to ponder:

Which is more disgusting: the idea espoused in this RWF, or the fact that someone is actually quoting Ann Coulter as some kind of sage voice of reason?

Discuss (or don't, because I doubt its good for the blood pressure).

"It cannot be said often enough..."

I love how these things always start so beautifully literary, like a bad SAT essay.

I think that I'm at the point where absolutely anything that Ann Coulter says is the diametric opposite of what I think.

Ugh, thankfully this shrew is no longer the powerful force she once was... maybe just maybe we have (shudder to say it) Caribou Barbie to "thank" for that??

This harridan works hard to push out the most hateful, nasty, spiteful, ugly, racist, sexist, stupid diatribes in an effort to make herself relevant to the 22% crowd. May she choke on her bile.

You stay classy, Ann Coulter.

Uh, no. The Czechs and Slovaks were never warring factions, at least not in any recent history (and I'm talking over several hundred years' worth of recent history). They split fairly amicably, and remain close partners in trade, commerce, culture, education, etc. I know of no Czechs and Slovaks who have a hatred or even a problem with the other. And trust me, I know A LOT of Czechs. And quite a few Slovaks.

Ann is embracing her inner barbarian. If we didn't have racial, religious and ethnic diviersity we'd have to invent something to differentiate ourselves by--maybe we'd divide up by the size of our adam's apples?

Yeeaaahhh, Bebe (chuckle), although watch out and don't accidentally diss any transgendered or transsexual folks with comparisons to ugly Ann.

Coulter, take a deep breath, lean back, and look at your computer for a moment. The operating system, the internet browser, the miraculous semiconductor itself were all designed and made either by international companies or US-based companies staffed with healthy percentages of international workers.

You're right. There's less inter-racial strife in Nebraska. But when's the last time Nebraska turned out a major technological company? You want the US to stay relevant? You want your beloved country to compete on the stage of the world? Then embrace the messy, problematic diversity, because darned if it doesn't get results.

If you want proof diversity is a blight on mankind, look no further than bananas.

And I can never help but laugh at the old hatred for the Irish, who are now part of the "old guard" of politics here, their immigrant days long forgotten.

And speaking of the horrors of dastardly diversity, most of the overbred competition dogs (esp) & cats these days suffer from a multitude of health problems, which are remedied only by... diversity! aka, inter-breeding.

Same goes for humans who do not marry outside of their tribal groups. Examples are abundant.

Ann Coulter is always full of shit, but this is a new level of abject stupidity.
