Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Friday asked our leftist overlords to explain “precisely” how “diversity is our strength.”
“Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific as you explain it,” Carlson said. “Can you think, for example, of other institutions such as, I don’t know, marriage or military units in which the less people have in common, the more cohesive they are?”
“Do you get along better with your neighbors, your coworkers if you can’t understand each other or share no common values? Please be honest as you answer this question,” he said.
Will the 2nd Amendment Be Destroyed By the Biden Admin?
“And if diversity is our strength, why is it OK for the rest of us to surrender one of our central rights, freedom of speech, to just a handful of tech monopolies? And by the way, if your ideas are so obviously true why does anyone who question them need to be shamed, silenced and fired?”
Transcript via Breitbart:
CARLSON: They’ve talked a lot about norms, called a lot of people racist, and tried to make anyone who disagrees with them shut up. And, of course, they’ve lectured us endlessly about something called diversity as if that answers some relevant question.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
OBAMA: Our diversity, our patchwork heritage, is not a weakness. It is still and always will be one of our greatest strengths.
BERNARD SANDERS, POLITICIAN, JUNIOR UNITED STATES SENATOR, VERMONT: Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Our great strength lies in our diversity.
HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER FIRST LADY OF THE UNITED STATES, AMERICAN POLITICIAN AND DIPLOMAT: We know our diversity is a strength, not a weakness.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
CARLSON: Well they all agree on that. It’s hard to know exactly what it means though other than stop talking or else. We won’t stop talking.
If the President’s going to be removed from office without a single vote from anybody outside Washington D.C., then we deserve to have some simple questions answered, and we mean answered for real, not just with a sneer and a ticket to the H.R. department for sensitivity training. So here it goes.
First, how has our current immigration system made America more stable and more prosperous? In your answer, please explain what happened to the State of California? Used to be called the Golden State. Had a thriving middle class. Had the country’s best schools.
Now the schools in California are a complete disaster. The middle class is vanishing, and the nation’s largest mass of impoverished people remains behind to serve a tiny pool of tech oligarchs. How exactly did that happen?
Next, how precisely is diversity our strength? Since you’ve made this our new national motto, please be specific as you explain it. Can you think, for example, of other institutions such as, I don’t know, marriage or military units in which the less people have in common, the more cohesive they are?
Do you get along better with your neighbors, your coworkers if you can’t understand each other or share no common values? Please be honest as you answer this question.
And if diversity is our strength, why is it OK for the rest of us to surrender one of our central rights, freedom of speech, to just a handful of tech monopolies? And by the way, if your ideas are so obviously true why does anyone who question them need to be shamed, silenced and fired?
How about this question? After spending two centuries overcoming our country’s painful history of racial discrimination and hatred, why is it once again acceptable, even encouraged, to attack people on the basis of their skin color?
And by the way, since we’re asking if it’s now possible to change your sex, is it possible to change your race too? If not, tell us why and be specific.
Here’s some of the responses he got (to an out of context edited clip from Media Matters):
I really would like all the US companies that support Fox news and this dude to recognize how racist (and against many of these organizations’ stated missions) what he’s saying is: https://t.co/vqmEZcSpVN

Since they’re mentioned in this clip, it’s worth pointing out that the U.S. Army itself has said having troops of different backgrounds allows the military to pool together their diverse life experiences to solve a wider array of problems.

Here’s what Luntz said last time the issue came up with Steve King:
Just as we learned after the murder of Mollie Tibbetts, it all boils down to tacos and the need for ethnic food:
The silliest part is that he is saying this in the USA. It’s like being anti-technology while you’re flying around in the Space Shuttle https://t.co/m7tWyUxtOC

And it’s pretty sweet that you can shut down his whole thesis with “the food is better”
