Now Susan Rice, President Barack Obama’s (D) National Security Advisor, is at it.
Too often, our national security workforce has been what former Florida Senator Bob Graham called “white, male, and Yale.”
By now, we should all know the dangers of “groupthink,” where folks who are alike often think alike.
Without tapping into America’s full range of races, religions, ethnicities, language skills, and social and economic experiences, we’re leading in a complex world with one hand tied behind our back.
She’s right on those last two. However, Rice needs to look into her Left mirror. The Left only sees diversity as skin color and claimed religious and sexual orientation. What Rice wants—since she’s an enormously intelligent woman and has, of course, looked into that mirror and reflected on the matter—is Proper groupthink.
It’s only necessary to recall the way the Left treats uppity women who think differently from the Left—conservatively—they’re sluts who should be held down and forced to pull a train. It’s only necessary to recall the way the Left treats uppity blacks of either gender who think differently from the Left—conservatively—they’re traitors to their race.
It’s only necessary to recall the Black Lives Matter movement, for whom only black lives matter and who assault those who mistakenly suggest that all lives matter.
It is necessary to have a range of skills in our government. But that range must be based on skill set, not superficial favored-group surface characteristics. If I have to choose, though, I’ll take conservative groupthink over the Progressive or Socialist—or the outright racist and sexist–groupthink the Left has on offer.
