Some people are more diverse than others, as Orwell might have said. Seriously, if there is a more Orwellian concept than “diversity and inclusion,” I don’t know what it is. It is precisely to exclude the Wrong Sort Of Person, and to congratulate oneself on one’s broad-mindedness in doing so.
Here’s an exquisite moment of white-progressive cringe:
AUDIO: Author Ben Philippe talks to CBC about his book, where he writes about trapping white people in a room, where they would then be blown up and gassed. pic.twitter.com/HdZ5yyzgVM

“When this race war hits its crescendo, I’ll gather you all into a beautifully decorated room under the pretense of unity,” Philippe said. “I’ll give a speech to civility and all the good times we share; I’ll smile as we raise glasses to your good, white health, while the detonator blinks under the table, knowing the exits are locked and the air vents filled with gas.”
Interviewer Talia Schlanger:
Listen to the audio. The interviewer, a Jewish woman, is audibly shocked by what Philippe, a black man, has written about gassing whites.
Emotionally stunned, she says that her family includes Holocaust survivors.
You can hear the gears grinding in her head as she processes this, and then she blurts out to this race-murder fantasist, “I’m so sorry that your experience of the world made you feel that way and made you feel compelled to write that.”
Diversity, equity, and inclusion is often abbreviated to DEI. DIE would be just too obvious.
Good to know what people are really thinking.
