Diversity, In Context

I wondered who coined the phrase “DIVERSITY” for all things liberal. Power Line provides the answer in an entry celebrating Abraham Lincoln’s birthday. For those of you who studied American history in public school and don’t know any better. Lincoln’s birthday is today February 12th.

It turns out “diversity” is an old rallying cry first uttered by democrat Stephen Douglas way back in 1858. Slavery, according to Douglas, was an indication of diversity.

Here is an example of diversity used as a meme to support unconscionable behavior.

 Lincoln’s assertion that the nation could not exist “half slave and half free” was inconsistent with the “diversity” in domestic institutions that was “the great safeguard of our liberties.”

Here is another gem from that speech.

“I am free to say to you,” that in my opinion this government of ours is founded on the white basis. It was made by the white man, for the benefit of the white man, to be administered by white men, in such manner as they should determine.”

Stephen Douglas, July 9, 1858, Tremont House hotel, Chicago

Here is the Power Line entry.

Study history and one can’t help concluding that the democrat party was founded on racist principles and existed to promote and preserve those principles. The basic intent is unchanged today. No wonder democrats find history so threatening. The KKK of yesterday would hang their heads in shame. Liberals are so much better at carrying out their racist agenda than the Klan ever was.
