The 'Postmodernist' racism of the New York Times

As Stephen Hicks writes in Explaining Postmodernism:

Postmodernists say that the West is deeply racist, but they know very well that the West ended slavery for the first time ever, and that it is only in places where Western ideas have made inroads that racist ideas are on the defensive.

Hicks describes this rhetorical approach as tactical, the use of contradictory discourses as a political strategy.

Last week, The New York Times published something that fits Hicks' description perfectly. As the New York Times has a habit of doing, the article was not posted in the "Opinion" section. In other words, the state of the Left is so dire that overt racism passes as ordinary news, or, in their eyes, as a Celine-Dion-worthy chest-pummeling performance that the rest of us see clearly as virtue signaling.

The article's title alone is enough to send any sane reader running: "New Hampshire, 94 Percent White, Asks: How Do You Diversify a Whole State?"

Here's one of its major conclusions:

Part of the problem, Rogers J. Johnson, president of the Seacoast N.A.A.C.P., told the group, was 'a lack of recognition as to the seriousness of this problem.' He said that many people in New Hampshire view race as an issue in the South but not in the North.

The article advocates—and, believe me, this entire article is purely a work of advocacy—the self-flagellation we've seen on repeat…the recent controversy at Starbucks and the consequent "sensitivity training" come to mind.

In workshops and panel discussions, people wrestled with ways New Hampshire could draw people of different backgrounds. Their suggestions included: a better understanding of licensing and skills that refugees bring with them so they could more easily work here; a system of rewarding businesses that hire a more diverse array of workers; a central location with a database, speakers' bureau and training opportunities that could help companies understand what "diversity and inclusion" means and how it could benefit them, and a focus on keeping workers as much as hiring them in the first place, since many leave after finding the state inhospitable.

The words "diversity and inclusion," especially when lumped together, have taken on an entirely different meaning under the rule of postmodernists. Typically, they signify a hidden racism. An anti-white sentiment. How does that help anything? We should be working together, everyone, everybody, all of us, and the first step is to reject these contradictory discourses masquerading as journalism. In reality, they're carefully-crafted political strategies, and, if they reach fruition, nobody ends up winning.

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
