Everything Is Proceeding As I Have Foreseen

My podcasting partner Stacy McCain has a post up titled Google SJWs Can’t Be Appeased. Of course, they can’t—certainly, not in the long run. Some of the things being sought by the employees in the recent walkout are antithetical to the company’s ongoing success as a business. Either the management says, “No,” to protect the company, or the management says, “Yes,” and eventually kills the golden goose that pays the protestors’ salaries. As Stacy sees it, the Google management and the protestors are at an impasse.

Nothing the (male) executives of Google can do will satisfy the company’s Social Justice Warriors, whose totalitarian ideology defines males — yes, all males — as oppressors who must be destroyed. The specific grievances cited by SJWs are just a means to an end for the walkout organizers, whose real aim is the dismissal of the company’s management, and their replacement by an all-female management team.

The men who run Google and other Silicon Valley giants will discover that feminists are not interested in any “reform” agenda. This isn’t something that changes to workplace policy can fix. Feminism Is a Totalitarian Movement to Destroy Civilization as We Know It, and the targets of destruction — men like @SundarPichai — had better wake up.

An Unintended Consequence?

Jemele Hill published a piece over at The Atlantic decrying the sympathy that black men are showing for Brett Kavanaugh.

On Tuesday night, I was in an auditorium with 100 black men in the city of Baltimore, when the subject pivoted to Brett Kavanaugh. I expected to hear frustration that the sexual-assault allegations against him had failed to derail his Supreme Court appointment. Instead, I encountered sympathy. One man stood up and asked, passionately, “What happened to due process?” He was met with a smattering of applause, and an array of head nods.

While she seems to remember enough of the plot of To Kill a Mockingbird to understand why black men have a certain edginess about false rape charges, she believes that they are “failing to see the bigger picture.” David French has a post up at NRO debunking Hill’s argument. He use facts. For example—

At Colgate University, for example, from 2013–2014 black students were 4.2 percent of the population, but “black male students were accused of 50 percent of the sexual violations reported to the university, and they made up 40 percent of the students formally adjudicated.” Across three academic years, “black students were accused of 25 percent of the sexual misconduct reported to the university, and made up 21 percent of the students referred for formal hearings.”

Off course, facts have offered no support to the Progressives in their attempt to derail the Kavanaugh nomination. Indeed, facts can get in the way of a “survivor” expressing her “truth.” French continues,

The bottom line is that opponents of Kavanaugh didn’t just want to stop Kavanaugh, they wanted to create a cultural moment that many black men are very wise to be wary of. “Believe survivors” is a slogan that resonates far beyond one single judicial confirmation. It’s the slogan of campus “justice” that all too often echoes the injustice of America’s racist past.

Perhaps a significant number of black men will take notice of the past month’s events. Perhaps their voting will be guided by their self interest.
